Mainstream Media’s Anti-America Agenda and Hypocrisy

Left-wing journalists in Canada have been fomenting anti-American hatred for a long time. They constantly portray our southern neighbors as a bunch of arrogant zealots determined to force radical Christian values on the world. Now the media is using that stereotype to brand Americans as meddlers in Canadian affairs.

The liberal press has cried foul over funding that some American pro-family groups have given to their Canadian counterparts. The media has interviewed left-wing politicians who claim Americans are trying to influence Canadians on everything from same-sex marriage to missile defense. It is not surprising that the liberal media complains when conservative influence drifts north of the border. Yet, consider how this plays out when liberal Americans come to Canada and spread left-wing ideology.

It was less than a year ago that American liberal Michael Moore, a disingenuous filmmaker, came to Canada to promote his newest propaganda film ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’. Only days before Canadians went to the polls in a federal election, Michael Moore urged Canadians to reject the Conservatives and its leader, Stephen Harper.

Not only did Michael Moore try to influence democracy in Canada, but he broke Canada’s election laws in the process. Section 331 of the law states:

No person who does not reside in Canada shall, during an election period, in any way induce electors to vote or refrain from voting...for a particular candidate unless the person is

(a) a Canadian citizen; or
(b) a permanent resident

The left-wing media did not portray Michael Moore as an arrogant American who used his wealth and influence to bend Canadians to his way thinking. Instead, they lionized him. Canada’s media heralded him as a champion of liberal values. The socialist Mayor of Sarnia, Mike Bradley, went to far as to publicly state that he would use his position to make Moore an honorary Canadian citizen to get around the election law. Can you imagine the uproar that would be caused by a conservative politician using their elected position to bail someone like Bill O’Reilly out of a legal problem?

Canada’s left-wing media is so biased these days you have to wonder how much longer it can continue.

You mean like a sexual harrassment charge? Bill's so rich he could buy his way out - oops - he already did...

I wrote to mayor Bradly back when he made those crazy comments.

You can see his well reasoned and inciteful reply back in the archives of Colbert's Comments

Moore was asked for his opinion on camera and gave it. That's a far cry from the kind of organized campaigns being run by the American civil rights opponents.

While I agree with the comments that I deleted above, I cannot tolerate people swearing on this blog.

Many of the comments people have been making recently I completely disagree with. However, I allow comments on the condition that people do not swear and do not make their comments personal.

My apolgies,

I was not aware I had swore. Though, I grew up in Transcona, Winnieg, so it is like breathing to me.

I shall be certain to hold my breathe in the future!
