As the legendary Major League Baseball player/coach Yogi Berra is famous for saying: It was like “déjà vu all over again”.
That’s how it felt to me when the MAINSTREAM American media decided NOT to properly report on the incredible September 12th rally in Washington DC, that might have attracted MORE than ONE MILLION PEOPLE who came out to protest government spending and a Healthcare Bill they were opposed to.
There is no question whatsoever, that there were MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people at the rally.
It’s nearly impossible for me to understand what’s in it for the MAINSTREAM media to ignore a crowd such as this, over an event that was clearly shouting-out the REASONABLE will of the people.
It reminds me of several similar mass demonstrations in Canada that were either downplayed by the media or outright lied about.
The first was a massive rally in Montreal, just days before the October 30, 1995 referendum on separating Quebec from Canada. Well more than 100,000 people came to this demonstration, many of whom traveled from the furthest parts of Canada to make their passion for the country known.
According to the French media, there were perhaps 10,000 to 30,000 people on the downtown streets of Montreal. According to the English media, there “MIGHT HAVE BEEN” as many as 75,000 people at the demonstration.
But I was there. I know from my own personal experience how big this crowd really was. And it was big. It was so big, that it covered blocks of downtown Montreal far from the center of the activities.
THERE WERE FAR MORE THAN 100,000 PEOPLE ON THE STREETS OF MONTREAL THAT DAY.
The French media LIED about the numbers because they were against the pro-Canada demonstration. And the English media UNDERESTIMATED the crowd because they were afraid of being called partisan.
The outright French lie was no more or less egregious than the gutless underestimation by the English media because neither of them stated the truth.
Another BIG LIE was about a massive demonstration at a Shopping Center in Pointe Claire, which is a suburb of Montreal.
It was April 18, 1996 – Just after the Quebec Referendum.
The reason for the demonstration was the total lack of English signs (NONE) in this West Island Montreal Community Mall, where the population at that time was more than 85% English speaking people, including the percentage of people who shopped at this massive high-end shopping center.
For those of you who might not know: The unrestricted use of the English language in Quebec is AGAINST THE LAW.
Until 1993 with the passing of BILL 86 in Quebec’s legislature, NO ENGLISH on commercial signs was allowed PERIOD. But, after 1993, the Quebec government allowed limited English to be placed on commercial signs in some instances, but not all, if the size of the English letters were half or less than half the size of the French letters.
It’s actually more odious and complicated than that, but, in a nutshell, this bigoted law did allow for ‘limited’ bilingual signs that the merchants, virtually all of which were major retailers chose not to take advantage of.
Hence, the demonstration at Fairview Shopping Center in the HEART of English Montreal, DEMANDING bilingual signs as the law allowed.
The demonstration was absolutely grass roots. I know, because I initiated it, I organized it, and I led it. As a matter of fact, I thought we would be lucky if we attracted more than a few dozen people.
But we attracted more. So many more in fact, that the police, supposedly out of concern for public safety, shut three of the exits off the highway that people could take to get to the shopping center.
Nonetheless, the people just kept on coming and coming.
Prior to the demonstration, I met with the Montreal Police Office In Charge to establish protocols of safety and crowd control, where we also estimated how many people could comfortably stand in a single car parking spot to determine how much of the parking lot we would occupy.
Each spot where you would park a car could hold as many as 100 people shoulder to shoulder. Roughly 20 people deep by 5 across.
So, we set out 100 spots excluding our staging area, leaving more than enough room for a crowd of far more than 5,000 people, which in my mind was nothing more than wishful thinking.
By the time the demonstration was in full swing, and I addressed this crowd, the 100 spots were jam-packed and overflowing, so much so, that there were people crowded in the staging area as well as outside the allocated parking spots.
According to the French media, the Fairview Demonstration attracted about 500 people. To be safe and appear NOT to be pro-demonstration, the Montreal Gazette, Montreal’s ONLY English language daily approximated the crowd at 2500.
But, according to the police officer in charge, who measured the crowd area prior to the demonstration, the crowd was far closer to 10,000. And that didn’t include the thousands of people turned away by the police at the exits, or the thousands of people who couldn’t get to the designated crowd area because of the size of the crowd.
HERE’S A BLACK AND WHITE CONTRAST:
On October 16, 1995, a vile White-Hating, Jew-Hating and America-Hating Black Moslem by the name of Louis Farrakhan staged his “MILLION MAN MARCH” in Washington DC.
It was going to be the BIGGEST pro Black event in American history. So big that it was a pre-event media story for weeks. And when it finally happened, there was virtually not a member of the media that didn’t cover it from wall to wall.
But it didn’t happen that way. There NEVER were one million people. Not even close. Instead, there were probably about 100,000 people or less than 100,000 people who attended this anti-White, anti-Jewish and anti-American demonstration.
BARACK OBAMA BEING ONE OF THEM.
And even though EVERY media will agree that there were no MILLION people at this demonstration, they still refer to it as the MILLION MAN MARCH.
Just GOOGLE Million Man March to see for yourself.
I’ve led a great number of demonstrations that each attracted several thousand people that were played-out in the media as ho-hum. While on the other hand, the same media would give extraordinary credibility to demonstrations they favored which attracted a handful of people they agreed with.
It didn’t take long for me to figure out that our battle for Equal Rights and Fairness wasn’t with the OBVIOUS enemy, ethnocentric Quebecois nationalists, as much as it was with the enemy within, the so-called “honest” media. Especially the appeasing and gutless LEFTIST English media.
Whoever reports the news gets to determine the truth and the importance of the event. This is where the battle must be waged before the war can be won.
In my next editorial, I will write about the REAL RACISTS who use the Race-Card to diminish opponents they cannot otherwise debate.
