Our CBC, now a virtual repeater of Associated Press corporate American media, seems less and less the Canadian icon of independent news to a facsimile of that under the Harper/Baird government of ignorance and overbearing USA affiliation. The Cons have crapped upon us again and the only truth out of the Harper government is that Canada will not be recognizable when he’s finished.
Harper is really a pseudo-Canadian. Certainly not a true Canadian but any scale. He is a fancier of the USA. “[Y]our country, and particularly your conservative movement, is a light and an inspiration to people in this country and across the world.” said Harper some years back.
And again Harper voices his disdain for Canada and Canadians in his macho, USA-loving manner, “It may not be true, but it’s legendary that if you’re like all Americans, you know almost nothing except for your own country. Which makes you probably knowledgeable about one more country than most Canadians.”
And our Harper said these things before Canadians voted him into the Prime Minister’s office!
Really we should have known.
Then, once in power he destroyed the CBC through threats of closing the CBC down. The threats work and you’re not apt to see these vicious, anti-Canadian quotes of our Harper on our new and ‘corporate’ CBC the repeater of the USA way.
There is a lot that out Harper CBC does that is propaganda in nature. For instance the constant repeating of ‘the pro-Russian rebels’ when in fact they are separatists refusing to back the government of the Ukraine pushed in by neo-Nazis and massive interference by the USA. Even Nuland of the US State Department stated, unusually with facts and truth, that the USA had invested $5 billion dollars into creating the direction of the Ukraine as the USA saw fit. No sovereign determination allowed by this country and our CBC seems intent upon ignoring these truths as it bends to the corrupt will of the would-be-American Stephen Harper.
Can I prove this is a Harper manipulation? Of course not, But this is quite obviously such when we watch the CBC turn over a new leaf and to back the moves by our Harper and the USA when, in the past, it would not. Also, many, many ordinary Canadians have noticed this trend; and the Harper smear campaign has come close to a standstill.
