Gordon Watson’s Report on Fake News Media Smears of END THE LOCKDOWN Protesters
Victoria’s Inner Harbor on Oct 23rd was a pleasant scene. The sun broke through at noon. As the Carillon chimed I thought: “I guess I’m here by me-self today” but a quorum soon arrived. By 1 pm we had 60 warm bodies in good spirits, half a dozen of whom were holding the fort at the intersection. NellyBelle and 10 of her VaxxFanatics stationed across the street. The Grim Reaper came by. So, we compared notes — a reasonable sort of fellow, actually.
Saturday was the high water mark so far for attention from the Powers_That_Be to our continuing PROTESTations. Assuredly, it won’t be the last. The Timely Colonic * devoted most of its front page to the apotheosis of Bonnie Henry. Reporter Cindy E Harnett quotes a guy sneering at us, as “a mob”. Also, Saint Bonnie commending Nell Saba – provocatrix who’s shown up for the last couple of months, holding up her VACCINES SAVE LIVES sign who “ just very quietly and calmly puts her voice out there.” Straight out of the Sol Alinsky playbook: Villains versus heroine.
A few pages further-in, atop the editorial page, was Raeside’s cartoon of us — his usual flat, talentless scrawl. Never in the same league as the delicious, punchy genius of the real cartoonists of yore, yet I’ll take it. P T Barnum quipped: “I don’t care what you say about me. Just spell my name right”. Meaning : following the tv hitpiece 2 weeks ago, the TC smear re anti-Lockdown protesters, gives away how much our GATHERINGS annoy the NDP administration. Venal, yes, but not stupid; they’re sensitive to resentment gathering against their INsanity.
By the most amazing coincidence the frontpage of the Vancouver Sun on Saturday featured a photo of John Horgan. Inside, a paean to this darling of “the Silent Majority”. Oh yeah? Were Mr Horgan able to muster the testicular wherewithal and join us, at our usual spot, 100 yards from the office of the Premier – he’d hear very different things being said aloud, about him, than Lisa Cordesco reported in her puffpiece.
The capper, was one full page of type headed “ANTIVAXXERS IGNORE INCONVENIENT TRUTHS”. Daphne Braham pretending worry about the direction taken by Joseph Roberts’ magazine Common Ground re the Covid thing. Lobbing-in “holocaust deniers / white supremecists / Nazis” insinuation of guilt by association. Supreme irony being >>> Braham’s smarm exemplifies the infamous quote by Goebbels
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
One of our strengths, is, we are immune from fear stoked by official lies called statistics … GrandWitch Bonnie’s spellcasting chant of “cases cases cases” does not work on us. A propaganda outfall – in this case, the Slum * – doesn’t print 2000 words just to fill grey space between the ads. Thus Braham’s sophisticated smear of Roberts, pays us quite the compliment, signalling … anti-Vackzers are no small potatoes on the political gameboard. * ‘local rags’ being = the Victoria Times Colonist. pathetic excuse for a newspaper in the capital city of the Province. The Vancouver Sun … a long, long way down in the gutter from the days when it was a newspaper that mattered
Having been through the Pro-Life thing, 3 decades ago, I am sure the kNeeDiPpers are slithering-around behind the scenes, fomenting trouble at street level, contriving excuse for their “safety zones” around hospitals and schools. The punchup on Oct 6 – in which someone ( ostensibly on our side? ) took the bait and punched a guy – was ‘golden’ for purposes of justifying “no-free-speech-zones”.
Revelation that Nell Saba’s sister, Rosa Saba, is a reporter for the Trawna Grope&Flail was the clincher = something wicked does indeed slouch this way out of Central Canada. Having taken the federal subsidy disbursed to the “legacy media’ … let’s just call it what it is : a BRIBE … the local rags are bound to play the tune called-for by their PAYmaster. Our chorus of dissident voices may seem remote from the Family Compact which runs Central Canada, but there is no doubt Justin True-Dope and his pal Horgan are conniving to stifle dissent. Doesn’t bother me a bit. They will not prevail
Meanwhile, we’re out there engaging the Electorate on Wednesdays and Saturdays at noon to 2, networking, comforting real people who have been devastated by the Horgan-ized crime family. Such as this lady shown in the pic, a nurse, fired for conscientious objection to the poisoned needle, still smiling after the shock of her career having been stolen from her.
