Canada’s Controlled News Media and the Vilification of the Idle No More movement
January 28, 2013
For those writers, publishers and artists working in the alternative news media in Canada it comes as no surprise that the mainstream media (msm) would eventually begin attacking the grassroots movement known as Idle No More. It was a foregone conclusion.
For decades past this same media has been attacking any and all individuals and movements who dared to espouse or act upon views be they on the ground, in publications or on the Internet. Examples abound but in the case of First Nations and the current Idle No More movement two prime illustrations of this predictable reaction on the part of the msm are the Oka Crisis of 1990 in Quebec and in BC the Gustafsen Lake stand off in 1995. As well are numerous other examples of environmentalists and natives battling with multinational forest and mining companies over clear-cutting and protection of habitat be it air, water or otherwise. In all of these instances it has always been the case that when push came to shove the government of the day could always count on their number one ally, the mainstream media, to come to their defence with their usual phalanx of sycophantic journalist shills and pundits (talking heads) leading the charge all in the name of a prevalent mindset that had already been instilled in the minds of the average Canadian by their very own news media. In term of attitude the msm always presumes that its interpretation of events is the only gospel in town.
I ought to know. Having been on the receiving end of their media smear campaigns for the past fifteen years for publishing articles and opinions related to crimes against First Nations and for having committed the unpardonable sin of criticizing the Zionist Jewish state of Israel for its racist ideology and its supremacist, apartheid terrorist attacks upon the indigenous Arab people of Palestine I’ve been dragged through the Canadian court systems, both quasi and Crown, again and again in a vain effort to silence their planned agenda of global governance and the destruction of all democratically elected nation states.
Most recent of course (in my case), was my May, 2012 arrest and imprisonment while on my way to work where I was charged by the RCMP’s “B.C. HATE CRIME TEAM” for willful promotion of hatred against “people of the Jewish religion or ethnic group.” Using Canada’s sec. 319(2) of the criminal code these same Zionists, hiding within their lobby front groups like B’nai Brith Canada, are now testing out the waters of Canada’s criminal court system to see whether or not it will serve them in their personal vendetta to relentlessly censor free expression on the Internet and thus allow their own mega-corporate media monopoly free rein to vilify whomever they so choose with impunity. Yesterday it was me. Today it’s Canada’s First Nations. New day, same old horse feathers as the saying goes.
Even the msm’s foot soldiers are the same. After six months of being relieved of all of my computers, firearms and my fundamental right to post my writings on the Internet or operate my website, a formal indictment was finally handed down by the assistant deputy minister for BC’s Attorney General on November 5, 2012. When I made my first appearance in court in Quesnel, B.C. on the 8th the Zionist run msm was Johnny on the spot with their smear and fear campaign vilifying my name, my website and my motives for printing the truth about Israel across the country’s news media, both print and television. No sooner was I out of the courtroom than Ezra Levant was beaking off on the Sun News media’s “The Source” with his belittling epithets and lies accusing me of endless misdeeds all of course in the interests of freedom of speech. Finally, unable to restrain himself (again, in the interests of free expression) he blurted out to the world “I HATE ARTHUR TOPHAM!”
Years of litigation and battling with the Canadian Human Rights Commission and its attendant Canadian Human Rights Tribunal over the issue of freedom of speech on the Internet has only reinforced the fact that Canada’s so-called mainstream media is in truth a cold-blooded, lying, mendacious mechanism of mind control whose sole purpose is to keep the vast sea of Canadian viewers and listeners misinformed and prejudiced against any individual or any group who might at some point attempt to assert their sovereignty, be it over their basic human rights or, as in the case of First Nations, their legally instituted treaty rights, signed, sealed and delivered to them by the federal government of Canada.
Now that First Nations across Canada have finally been backed up against a brick wall of prejudice, deception and endless legal wrangling in the federal courts over their treaty rights (for what appears to be the last time), who but the Custer-style msm mercenaries should come riding to the rescue to reinforce the Harper government’s sleazy, disingenuous political agenda, one that would see their fundamental, inherent human and treaty rights cast aside in favour of a corporate, free-for-all land and resource grab. After all, to allow such open and honest refusal to this “business as usual” approach to First Nations issues by the people thus affected to go beyond their acceptable norm not only poses a direct threat to the Harper government as a tool of the corporate elite but also to their own decades long complicity in colluding with each and every former federal party that has prolonged and perpetuated any final resolution to the age-old treaty problem.
Too many Canadians today still suffer under the misconception that the msm is somehow an independent, unbiased, and as SunNews media would have you believe, a “free enterprise” communications corporation that presents only the facts and both sides of any issue of importance. This sort of myth-information being passed on to Canadians via the msm’s radio, tv and newsprint media is as far from the actual truth as First Nations treaty rights are from being resolved.
Sun News network, with their flagship “CanadianTvFirst.ca” which they are currently pushing like hell to get implanted into every living room across the nation so they can continue to misinform and brainwash Canadians into believing all the Zionist propaganda that comes to them straight from Israel and the Mossad is a prime example of how deliberately deceptive Canada’s msm truly is. More to the point would be the spoof ads below adapted from their own propaganda site which would show their honest agenda if they were in the least truthful to their viewers and listeners.
Fortunately those within the movement were quick to twig on this media approach and are already going on the counter attack. The must. They literally have no choice left if change is come in a peaceful, meaningful way. Like all the other underhanded, surreptitious, slight-of-hand gestures and broken promises that the Harper Conservatives have been meting out to First Nations the time has come when these fabrications and falsehoods need to be exposed and those who are perpetrating them via their media cartel need to be call to task for their glaring, prejudicial approach to resolving First Nations issues.
With the likes of all the Ezra Levants and the National Post and the Sun News media and the CBC talking heads coupled with Zionist lobbyists like B’nai Brith Canada spearheading the “hate crime legislation” that penalizes open and honest debate it doesn’t take too much head scratching to realize that the issue of the controlled mainstream media along with its pro-Harper propaganda campaign of hate against First Nations is one that is bound to grow bigger and longer and hairier legs as the days go by.
What the alternative news media has been attempting to alert mainstream Canadians to for decades has now suddenly, with the advent of the Idle No More movement, been given an incredible boost. Let’s hope that we can all learn to work together for the betterment of the nation as a whole and for our common right to speak our our minds and defend our common ground, common air and water and our common principles, values and rights that will allow us all to live in peace and harmony with each other and the Earth Mother.
