In a pre-Christmas weekly rant, CBC host Rick Mercer compared the plight of Syrian refugees to that of a drowning person who was calling out for help. According to Mercer, the humane thing that all humans had to do was to throw a life preserver to the person. And, according to him, Canada was doing that by taking 25,000 Syrian refugees.

The more accurate comparison that Mercer should have made was that there were two people in the water. One was a Canadian and the other was a Syrian. The choice that Mercer, the CBC and Ottawa made was to throw a life raft to the Syrian and simultaneously say “To hell with the Canadian” .

Well-intentioned Canadians who think otherwise need only look over the past two months to see daily examples of the CBC throwing a “life preserver” to the so-called internationally “desperate”. Its reporters in Europe have repeatedly sided with so-called Syrian migrants flooding into countries such as Greece, Hungary, and Germany. Over and over, CBC reporter Margaret Evans has described the migrants as desperate Syrians looking for a “better life”—in spite of clear evidence that many of the migrants are not Syrians at all and of other evidence that these “desperate” carry the latest expensive telephone technology and that migration into Europe has spawned a booming and fraudulent Syrian passport manufacturing industry.

Within Canada’s borders, other CBC reporters have given unlimited air time to the most parasitic of immigration lobby groups who are using the so-called “Syrian crisis” to expand their parasitic work. One of those groups, The Immigrant Services Society of B.C., is advocating that Canada double its intake of immigrants to 500,000 per year. That group received about $34 million in the past two fiscal years and now wants to add another 100 employees to its staff and increase its budget dramatically. Other lobby groups are drooling at future possibilities.

According to CBC reporters everywhere, these migrants have a right to seek a “better life” and the Western World has a “duty” to take them. No CBC reporter ever says that a so-called “better life” for migrants might mean a “worse life” for citizens of the countries that these migrants flood into. Even more outrageous, to the CBC, no country has a right to defend itself and if it does take such an action, the CBC goes to great lengths to ridicule it.

The CBC justifies its behaviour by implying that government funding is much more noble and infinitely more “humanitarian” if it goes to newly arrived Chinese, Sikhs, Muslims , Somalis, Sri Lankans and others. Most of Canada’s immigration lobby groups are ethnic-based and extract more than $1 Billion every year out of Citizenship and Immigration Canada. This money supposedly assists immigrants, but the point is that most of these immigrants should never have been brought to Canada. And, were it not for the addiction that vote-grovelling politicians have to bring unending numbers of immigrants here, those unnecessary immigrants would not be here. Like Mercer, the rest of the CBC listens to their every word and grants them all the air time they want to spread their propaganda. The most glaring example of CBC and other media hypocrisy was the attention they gave to the image of the drowned Syrian child.

Why do we use the word “hypocrisy”? Ironically, in the weeks leading up to the CBC’s yearly FOOD BANK DAY, the CBC pretended to have some interest in the plight of poor Canadians. It presented a number of news items which stated that child poverty in Canada was as bad or worse than it has ever been, and that the recent cold weather was causing many of the country’s Homeless to seek refuge in shelters. Let’s repeat that phrase again for the CBC : Canada’s own “Homeless” were seeking “refuge”. In other words, Canada’s has its own “refugees”. They are our “homeless” and their government has been bombing them daily with plane-loads of new immigrants. Then, it corruptly gives preference in hiring to new arrivals and drives its own further into the economic refugee fringe in their own country.

Let’s put it this way : the CBC was unintentionally presenting Canada with a choice :(1) look after its own “drowning children”, that is, its own homeless and its desperately poor or (2) look offshore and help non-Canadians. The CBC has obviously thrown in its lot with non-Canadian children and non-Canadian homeless. In fact, with regard to Canada’s own poverty-stricken children, the CBC and our government had decided not only to ignore them, but to grab them by the hair, shove their heads under the water, and triumphantly keep them submerged until the children stopped struggling. After all, according to the CBC, which receives close to $1 Billion per year from Canadian tax-payers, there is more “romance” and more “moral mileage” to be gained by helping non-Canadians and so-called “international refugees”.

On this past December’s CBC FOOD BANK DAY, the CBC in British Columbia alone raised over $600,000. However, this and other money raised will make very little difference to Canada’s poor. In fact, any good that might result from what the CBC does on that one day of the year will be quickly nullified by the enormous damage the CBC does on the other 364 days of the year. That’s because on almost every other day, our CBC cheer-leads unnecessary immigration which has clearly contributed substantially to homelessness and poverty—-particularly among Canada’s majority population. In other words, the CBC has helped to create a host of tragedies : competition between Canadian-born and newly-arrived workers for a decreasing number of jobs ; wage stagnation for many Canadian workers ; a rise in the number of low income workers; persistence in the country’s child poverty rate ; enormous pressure on the country’s social assistance programmes and health care services ; a huge increase in the cost of housing, especially in Canada’s urban areas ; and very serious environmental damage through the conversion of irreplaceable farmland to housing.

Let’s be blunt : the CBC has significantly helped to create the misery and poverty that it says it wants to relieve. As a publicly-funded media organization, it has a huge obligation and duty to present the truth to Canadians. Instead, it shamelessly and contemptuously suppresses the truth and deceives Canadians. There is no doubt that it is a quisling organization and a hypocritical parasite. The evidence against it is so enormous that it has summarily damned itself. There is no need for a trial. The CBC was intended to be a valuable nationalist asset, but it has betrayed all Canadians. Like the immigration lobby, it has to have its funding cut dramatically. Its host of immigration-cheerleader hacks have to be sent packing.

What a stroke of poetic justice it would be to see CBC quislings out on the street panhandling in the day and crawling into homeless shelters at night !!!
