NZ media finally reports on Canadian Truckers’ protest- with vile cowardly smears
Two days ago a NZ MSM employee tweeted her dissatisfaction at the NZ public’s criticism of journalists. Responses to this complaint were numerous, and in many instances they referred to the media’s failure to report on the huge and momentous Canadian truckers’ protest against Covid19 vaccination mandates.
Perhaps these complaints (along with so many others on blogs and social media) finally stung the NZ Fake News industry into action. This morning one of the worst propaganda organisations finally ran a story on the protests, but as you would expect it was a litany of smears and falsities and did not at all address the real protest issue, and that is the loss of basic liberties in Canada at the hands of the socialist demagogue Justin Trudeau. (who could be Jacinda Ardern’s twin brother.)
Radio NZ Morning Report presenter Corin Dann’s story included a telephone connection with a Vancouver “journalist” Craig McCulloch. Given that Morning Report sets the tone for much of the so called “news” reporting in the NZ media, it was the expected litany of disinformation.
The report smeared the truckers as Nazis, homophobes, anti semetic, far right and “with other hateful views”. It also attacks the truckers for driving around Ottawa “honking their horns and flying Canadian flags”. Fancy that? How bad can they get!
Of course Radio NZ still reports reverently about Black Lives Matter who held protests where whole inner city suburbs were looted and burned, statues were destroyed and people were killed among widespread hateful rhetoric against white Americans or anyone who opposed the riots.
McCulloch couldn’t wait to unleash disinformation about the protest, citing claims the truckers had displayed the Nazi flag, had danced on the grave of the Unknown Soldier and urinated on the National War Memorial. These incidents were clearly false flag events designed to discredit the protest, but Corin Dann and Craig McCulloch dutifully commented upon them without the slightest scrutiny. In other words, they played their part in the deceit.
The two “journalists” repeated Trudeau’s propaganda by claiming the protesters were an unrepresentative minority, citing an assertion from a govt minister that 90% of truck drivers had been vaccinated. However official figures on vaccination rates conflict with this claim, and there has been huge public support for the protest convoy as it rolled across Canada on its way to Ottawa. Citizen supporters have donated $8 million to the trucker’s Go Fund Me campaign.
To Dann’s credit, he stopped short of other MSM claims that the protest had been organised by Vladimir Putin. Still, one imagines leaving out this absurd myth took a huge amount of Corin’s self restraint, given the obvious objective is to paint the truckers as falsely as the Jan 6th US protesters have been painted.
Radio NZ’s report on Canadian truckers’ protest
Thanks to the truckers, some opposition politicians have finally been prompted to take a partial stand against Trudeau’s draconian measures and have agreed to meet with protest representatives. What a shame there is no chance of the NZ National or ACT parties being spurred into action on this issue. Like Jacinda and her media army, they’re happy to continue with the subterfuge and lies.
Meanwhile similar protests are occurring right across the western world, and still the craven duplicitous media stays silent. Until this changes, Ms Campbell (above) and her colleagues are due only contempt from citizens who see the media as it is. A fake organisation acting in consort with corrupt left wing political actors in govt, academia, bureaucracy and elsewhere.
Our Bill of Rights, supposedly designed to preserve our traditional liberties, depends upon politicians respecting it. Whoever imagined we would one day be governed by such a scurrilous lot and subjected to such a level of propaganda as we are today?
Anyone interested in the truth about the Canadian Truckers already knows not to take heed of the NZ media. This blog recommends Rebel News and The Western Standard for news and opinion free of the pervasive left wing mind set that dominates here.
