National Post takes the blinders off MSM

January 25, 2008

The National Post has run some excellent editorials about the Native terrorism in Caledonia in the past week and in doing so they have begun to take the blinders off of the mainstream media.

Thanks to the National Post, more and more jounalists are going to start questioning the  leadership of the OPP and the McGuinty government in an effort to find out why the OPP are refusing to act as a police force and why their tax dollars are supporting this criminal occupation instead of putting an end to it. If you have not done so yet, I strongly suggest reading these.

The Coward at Queens Park.  Q&A with Calvin Helin.  Living off the Band Land.  Send in the troops.  Caledonia Redux.  Rule of law missing in Caledonia Dispute.  Natives demand royalties for land and The disgrace of native lawlessness in Ontario

The biggest battle that those of us who fight for equality have endured has not been with the Mohawk warriors, the OPP, or the McGuinty government, but with the mainstream media who have turned a blind eye to the bleak reality of life in Caledonia for almost 2 years now out of fear of offending someone.

There are endless stories of media bias to be told but I’ll stick to a few from my own experience.

In February of 2006, I remember reading the cover of a local paper which stated “Aboriginals occupy disputed land in Caledonia” and buying it so that I could read the great coverage that surely must have been lurking inside. Curiously all I could find was a sob story based around interviews with a few Native people, and nothing at all about the effect on the town on Caledonia.

The media printed and broadcasted a count of the days of the occupation and aired more interviews with angry Native people who spoke like a broken record of oppression, and since there were no interviews with residents and it was reported that DCE was approximately 1km outside of town, I much like many others no doubt assumed that this was some barren land and had little effect on the residents.

Having spent very little time in the Caledonia area, I had no concept of where DCE was in relation to the countless houses of innocent residents at the time, nor of the torment they were being subjected to on a daily basis because the media simply didn’t care enough to tell me.

One story explained that the OPP “have everything under control” and had a picture of a provincial highway being blockaded by a hydro tower with warrior flags all over it. Things didn’t look particularly under control.

While standing in line at a local Tim Hortons one afternoon, the power went out, and I happened upon an OPP officer in the parking lot. I asked him if a line had fallen and he said “Natives took out a transformer..  Looks like we’re not getting the hydro back anytime soon”.  Ironic that an OPP officer sparked an interest in me that would lead me to where I am now.

The OPP reported that they didn’t know who had destroyed the station, and the media echoed that every chance they got. This was when I started to realize that the media was lying to us every day so as not to offend the criminals who were terrorizing Caledonia.

My first personal experience with the media was on December 16, 2006 at a flag raising event. I had brought 20 Canadian flags with me and had given away all but 2 when someone suggested that I give the last 2 to OPP officers who were forming a human barrier to protect a sacred hydro pole from a flag. Reminding them that they’re Canadians sounded like a great idea so I tried my best but no officer would touch the flags.

As soon as I turned around, I was swarmed by TV cameras, microphones, and people scribbling frantically on notepads. Minutes later a Native swerved from the road and came within inches of hitting a bystander with a flag, and the same media had no interest in talking to him. One of the TV stations had captured the event and ran a 2 second clip of it before talking about how Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas had been arrested, then cutting to interviews with Natives.

When we learned last winter of a young woman on the 6th line road who was trying to bring attention to the plight of the children there whom the OPP abandoned to Native criminals, Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas took her to Queens Park to tell her story to the media. Not one media outlet cared enough to print or air one word about it.

The tide began to turn in October 2007 at the Remember Us March. Several local papers wrote excellent stories from the point of view of someone other than a Native criminal, and the plight of the children of the Sixth line was finally told.

Since that day the coverage from local outlets like The Regional and The Chronicle has been excellent, but only this past week has the terrorism in Caledonia started to be revealed by any national news outlet.

Thanks to the National Post, the tide is turning but the question remains, how will average citizens react when they see the story of Caledonia told without the stories of oppression, genocide, and a fantasy about sovereignty used to justify and cover up the despicable true nature of these thugs?

    The Post articles were timed well ti run all in one 3 week period and bring reader feed through the letters…it did that in spades and the Caledonia abortion is now a concern of every deaded land owner living near a reserve….. and there is no doubt in my mind they mortified that useless tit John Tory enough to do his token Caledonia photo op.

    The political stakes escalate daily for McGuinty and his army of flying malfeasant monkeys trying to keep a lid on this civil abomination. Every day this thing festers unresolved and every new criminal and malfeasant event that has to be hidden are swelling McSquinty’s protective bubble to the breaking point…at some point a simple pin prick will release the pressure of corruption will come rushing out at a rate they can’t control. Then smug boy Dolton will find himself in a world of shite he can’t buy his way out of by simply hiding under his desk. I just love their self-satisfied idea that they has some how “escaped” backlash over Caledonia …hell, the real shit storm is just getting started,…McGuinty, Bryant and Julius “Caesar” Fantino will need cast iron shorts and asbestos parachutes to escape their fate. Caledonia will bury their respective political ambitions once the scandal breaks fully…and it is…we just have to keep the pressure on in the volatile points of Dolton’s protective balloon.

    BTW: The SN extortionists who hitched their leaky dinghy to McGuinty’s sinking ship will find they will ultimately come away with less than they started with…just watch when the costs of this occupation comes due….particularly when the citizens refuse to pay for it…guess who we’ll be mailing the bill to…or we can just deduct the costs of the occupation from any future compensation 😉

    The bottom line for Dalton in my opinion is that this is going to come crashing down as public awareness of it reaches a certain point, and the lack of mainstream attention on this issue is the reason he was able to be elected for a second term.

    I disagree however that SN will end up footing the bill for this. The political climate necessary to deduct one cent from the funding given to them on an annual basis and then deal with the violent fallout is something of a stretch.

    The argument could easily be made and I would have to agree that punishing all of SN for the actions of a relative few would be highly unreasonable.

    “the lack of mainstream attention on this issue is the reason he was able to be elected for a second term.”

    That will be the secondary backlash wave…the usual media pimps will bring widespread credibility harikari on their respective employers…it will drive the nail in the coffin of the political pandering tree-killer press and the show-biz electronic info-mercial news media….they whored out to “the boss” rather than call attention to the fact he is selling Ontario out to criminal elements in the fallacious victimhood shake down industry.

    Hey hows your head?

    Still got “Tempoary Brain Damage”?

    “Temporary”? brain damage, ROFLMFAO.

    Yours was permanent from birth pumkin teeth.

    Slip Christine the tongue?

    Maybe Gary shoved you to the ground in a jealous fit?

    Ewwwwwwwww a little pumpkin on Chrissy,lol.

    Thank you very much Trumpet for demonstrating the astounding ignorance of people on your side of this situation while continuing to hide in fear behind an alias.

    The sadistic nature of people like yourself was very helpful in reminding me each day why I had to fight to recover and continue this battle, and for that I truly do thank you.

  6. Hi Jeff,

    You know we’re winning the war against landclaim lawlessness when supporters of the violent thugs have to resort to silly namecalling. Like you, I don’t print the (very few) sleazy comments I get unless I can use them to illustrate a point. Good call on this one. People need to understand what kind of lowlifes the OPP and Liberal government are negotiating with. I guess the National Post reports leave them with no other option but to make fun of someone who was injured and insult the honour of a great woman who hasn’t hurt anyone.

    Hey Jeff: gotta love the kind of people that hate you…pretty much confirms the degenerate mentality of DCE occupation criminals eh?

    Obviously they have no talent for anything but yellow-bellied criminality.
