I started to write about the CRTC’s decision not to renew Quebec City’s CHOI FM radio licence because of inflammatory comments they’ve made, but then I heard the news about Al Jazeera.
Al Jazeera, the Middle Eastern Arab propaganda television station has been granted a licence to broadcast in Canada on Cable and Satellite television by the CRTC.
Both issues are outrageous!
The CRTC will not let Canadians watch the US FOX Television News Network, which is the MOST viewed American news provider. But instead, they invite a lying, anti-Western, and anti-Jewish Arab television network that promotes hatred into the homes of Canadians.
It pains me to see that the Liberal government of Canada, which consistently votes to condemn Israel at the United Nations on the behalf of Arab Thugocracies, is now an enabler of further Arab propaganda and hatred in Canada.
Every right-thinking Canadian must be as scandalized by this travesty as I am. I am as much in favor of the least amount of government intervention in the content of the media as anyone. But I am not in favor of so many rights, that broadcasters should be allowed to broadcast lies, hatred and incitement.
While it is true, that just this past week, Al Jazeera promised to clean up their act and broadcast more responsibly, I don’t believe them. Their’s is a broadcast culture based upon lies, distortion, innuendo, violence, anti-Americanism, a hatred for Israel and an active promotion of anti-Semitism.
Why would Al Jazeera change their ways because of a relatively small Canadian market, in comparison to their meat and potatoes markets in the Middle East and Europe where promoting hatred for Jews and Americans is their staple?
What happens when Al Jazeera continues to incite its viewers to hate Jews and Americans, but this time on Canadian TV? What will the CRTC do or say then? How will the CRTC punish a broadcaster whose operation is based in Qatar?
Will the CRTC have the balls to pull the plug on Al Jazeera, the way they are doing to CHOI FM In Quebec City?
Will the CRTC dare to risk the wrath of an angry Arab mob in Canada? Will the Liberal government of Canada dare to anger so many Arab voters?
We know for certain that CHOI FM’s management and supporters will sue the CRTC to stay on the air. And we know without a doubt, win or lose, CHOI FM will accept the verdict.
What about the Arabs?
When Arabs get pissed off, buildings seem to get bombed, and people tend to die. Will the CRTC do the right thing and run the risk of a violent response by pulling the plug on Al Jazeera when the complaints come thundering in?
FOX is banned in Canada, CHOI FM is being yanked off the air partly for commenting on the boob size of a Quebec City weather-girl, and Al Jazeera is given the green light to spew their hatred.
During the heat of the Quebec referendum in 1995, Lucien Bouchard said that Canada is not a real country. He was right. A real country does not behave in such a reprehensible manner.
As a side note: The substantial Toronto Italian community was promised an Italian satellite station by the liberals, if the Italians voted for the Liberals in the just run federal election. The Italians held up their part of the bargain.
In the same CRTC announcement, the Arabs got Al Jazeera. The Italians got screwed. And the electors who voted Liberal got what they deserved.
I and many others voted Conservative. We deserve better.
