Al Jazeera comes to Canada — thanks to Obama’s favorite union thugs

November 27, 2009

Al Jazeera — the Qatar based satellite channel that serves as Osama bin Laden‘s favorite propaganda medium — is now coming to Canada.

Yesterday, the government agency that approves new broadcasters gave Al Jazeera English permission to start beaming its messages throughout the Great White North (where honor killings, lawfare and plots to behead the Prime Minister are now part of our colo(u)rful multicultural mosaic!)

And guess who helped make that possible?

Among the many individuals and organizations who filed supporting comments were the National Council on Canada-Arab Relations, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, the Canadian Arab Federation, the Arab Canadian Lawyers Association (…) the Service Employees International Union

The SEIU: not just for beating up black guys anymore!

Question: will this make it even easier for Al Jazeera to poach former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation bigshots?

I bet they’ll find fresh talent in the most surprising places

Let’s hope we at least get to see stuff like this:

    Actually, AlJazeera English isn’t that bad, relatively at least. In my experience, it’s less leftist than the BBC and / or CNN International. Seriously: CNNI is worse. It’s more anti-American than AlJazeera…

    One is reminded of the religous wars of the 17th century and why this country was founded. Then, too, one is also reminded that oppressive tactics are still evident in our society today when governments condon violent organizations to force their will on people. The cycle rises again. Why?

    Put the hat on Ron Emanuel head and I’m sure it would fit.

    Everyone should view this video. Thanks.

    Canada is rotting from the inside.

    Run by socialist sycophants and those so progressive bureaucrats that run the show regardless of the government of the day. The CRTC is an obsolete organization but sadly it has not been dismantled.

    AJE will be good for the multicultural elite and the immigrant tax consumers that insist on keeping there women in those little walking tents.

      Those little black tents are to cover up the marks left when they get BEAT. Think about it.

    That’s a good video. One that should be watched by viewers of the CBC and “Little Mosque on the Prairie” to get an insiders view of real Islam from Wafa Sultan.

    The CBC is not interested in the real Islam (as evidenced by Little Mosque on the Prairie) but some are likely interested in real job opportunities at AJE.

    As long as I’m not forced to carry on my cable packages and therefore indirectly pay for it – I’m fine with their broadcasts – I would rather know what they are saying publicly so that we can track if they start to threaten Canada’s security.

      and who exactly would bring that up? In the traditional TV & print Media I mean.

    The look on the clerics face as she ripped him is priceless. Reminds me of the old cartoon where the guy comes out of the bosses office and his buddy asks him, ” how did it go?” As you pan down the guy coming out of the bosses office has half of his backside chewed off. Who was she and how do we sign her up?

    Three cheers to Wafa Sultan. The lady has the guts to stand up for what is right and true. I doubt she will be making any trips to Saudi Arabia in the near future. The Jihadists whackjobs probably have a price on her head. I just wish we had many more Wafa Sultans in this world.

    With Muslim Obama in the Black House, I wouldn’t be surprised to soon see the AlJazeera network being broadcast into our public schools shortly. It didn’t take very long for the Liberals to bow down to Obama with their silly songs. Maybe the next tune will be mmm mmm mmm, Allah Allah Allah, mmm mmm mmm. lol

    Al Jazeera. Is just fine. So make it so use our taxes for this Islamist tool. Jizra again on us PC fools. Fox. Not so good so seclude it, tax it, than mock it. Make it so only the well off can watch it with government regulations.
    Fox might upset our enemies.

    If AJ appears on basic cable and something else gets bumped up to premium, that would be annoying.

    If AJ appears on basic cable and Fox is still up on premium, that would be a clear signal that dhimmis are running the circus.

    Now that al-Jazeera English is coming to the true north, strong and free, wouldn’t it be nice to see a new network come into existence — the anti al-Jazeera Network English Corporation. Saturate the airwaves with Robert Spencer, Nonie Darwish, Brigette Gabriel, Walid Shoebat, Bat Ye’or, Wafa Sultan and all the other good folks who are genuinely trying to educate us kuffars/kafirs (pick your spelling) about the dangers of Islam which is both a religion and a political idealogy all rolled into one. Hmmm…what a capital idea, Steve! (Will this qualify me for a Peace Prize?) Any Canucks out there with loads of cash , a brave heart, and the commitment to de-Islamize our still relatively-free country.

    I really wish everyone would realize the struggle going on between the American Union rank and file and the leaders who “represent”us.Since the 1994 coup that placed self described socialist John Sweeney as the head of the AFL-CIO,our voices have been muted by leaders who have consistantly merged local unions to quash dissent on a range of issues,including illegal immigration and the affilliation of our trades with UNI Global Union WITHOUT rank and file consent or vote.Everything you hear from these leaders reflects solely THEIR socialist manifesto,not the average American Union member,who are more in agreement with a George Meaney anti communist sentiment.Due to these mergers Union elections are a farse and are being controlled at the top whether it be the AFL-CIO,Change To Win,or it’s soon to be parent Union,UNI Global Union. We are fighting,I myself since 2002 when I was promoted just enough to see the big picture.We are demanding a congressional investigation into these election proceedures in favor of a more democratic ,one person one vote format,we seek transparent and PUBLICALLY MODERATED Union elections along with the full financial disclosure these leaders have pressured the Dept of Labor to hide deeming it “too burdensome”.We want it known we are DIVERSE in our political philosophies and that any dues spent on political campaigns should be controlled by membership vote and consent.In essense we seek the demise of the current “politboro” leadership,for we are AMERICAN UNIONISTS who agree that working WITHIN the perametersof capitalismhas given this country the best standard of living in the world.

      John Buck thank you for your post. I personaly have nothing against union or any organization that wishes to conduct legal business to better themselves. The problem right now is that SEIU are a bunch of Obama thugs and everyone know it. If you alow Obama and his thugs to continue you won’t have a capitalist economy. Your union won’t mean squat.

      If you are true to your word the AFL/CIO and all the other unions,that live a good life in a free country, will throw their weight behind the grass root movements that are trying to save your way of life that you enjoy so much.

      We may only have a matter of months before everything changes. If we have a year or two we can stop them but I’m afraid we don’t have that long.

      It’s not a case of “Change we can live with” it’s a case of “Change we will die to defeat” I’m not sure you know how serious this is. Don’t pretend it’s going to be business as usual because it won’t. Most of you people have lived here all your life so you don’t really know what it’s like to not be free. If you don’t act NOW you will be telling your children and grand children what it was like.

    I see nothing at all wrong with Canadians having access to Al Jazeera.

    On the other hand, I have nothing but contempt for the people who tried to keep Fox News out of Canada.

    Let’s be for free speech. If we don’t do it consistently, nobody will believe we really actually believe in it at all.

    Concerning the talk of Unions, I have been a union member for many years. First I was a member of the United food and Commercial workers Union. That was for 28 years. I’m currently a member of the United Steel Workers Union. At no time in all of those years as a union member, did either union ever back a Republican candidate for election. All my union dues have gone to fund the coffers of Democratic candidates. Not once did I want my dues to go to a Democratic candidate, but I had little choice other then to quit my job. I agree with John above, Union members should have a say in where their dues are going. Consider the fact that Barack Hussein Obama received $600 million of union member dues and not a dime went to opposition candidates. Organzied Crime runs rampant in America. It hides behind the cloak of Unionism.

Initially because I thought the Democrats would nominate Hillary Clinton and then in astonishment when they chose an even more hard-left candidate.

Obama is following Alinsky’s plans, those set out in “Rules for Radicals” and his other writing. The Democrats are attempting to create one party rule in the U.S. And in achieving that, will create crisis after crisis by their own actions and use those crisis to nationalize the means of production in the U.S. You are in the middle of a communist revolution and few in the U.S. Can actually see it for what it truly is.

    I salute you Commander Wilson. mself a former member of the United States Army. Hopefully all will take the time to read your comment. It rings so true. America is heading into unchartered waters. The Liberal media continues their efforts to silence those who dare speak the truth about Obama and his Socialist party. We see Our soldiers being called murderers by Murtha, Nazis by Durbin. Obama is paving the way to give the 9/11 terrorists a pulpit from which to trash America. Obama continues to apologize and bow down to our enemies. Obama is weak and our enemies see that. Obama wants a weak America. Every move he makes is taking us in that direction. Tearing down the CIA. Americans better wake up soon, or else they will be living in another banana republic like Venezuela. Lets hope you and I are wrong. Thanks again Commander Wilson for your service to our country.

    LYCOS – Never before have I been really involved in politics; however, I’ve known from the beginning that this administration was/is “different”. I’ve watched BHO’s connection to SEIU, heard his statements when addressing “purple shirts” pre-election, stating “I worked my whole life for the SEIU”. I’ve heard Andy Stern speak candidly about redistribution of wealth, and tout the phrase “workers of the world, unite!” – straight from the Communist Manifesto. You know Andy – he’s logged the most visits to the WH this yr!

    You can go to youtube and see dozens of videos of campaign workers for Hillary who tell stories of people who wanted to vote for Hillary were “bullied”. It’s become evident to me that Hillary should have won the primary, & we would have a Republican president. Based on the research, etc. that I’ve done, the SEIU, put Obama in office to get the HC bill pushed through. BHO has even admitted that Stern was involved putting the bill together. You know that bill was written long before B Hussein O was elected to office! The reason they want coverage for illegals is SEIU has illegal employees. The HC bill is more than just HC – its a socialist agenda, as you know. That is why it’s his #1 priority – above war, above everything else! The way he’s acting, he may have a price on his head if he doesn’t get it done!

    I just don’t understand why America is not waking up and taking a stand. I AM! I am really disappointed. Most people I talk to, don’t think OHB has the power to bring this country down – as stated by Commander Wilson. They continue to go on their merry way… They don’t get it. How do you bring awareness to people who would rather, it seems, be in the dark?

      Debobar: I also wanted Hillary in office. Since September my eyes have been opened. I have been a staunch liberal all my life. I have also been under the ether. I was also fooled into believing America was the “Great Evil”. True we do have our problems and we always will but one thing we have that no other country has is “OUR FREEDOM”.

      Now to tell the truth I was preaching for the Clintons up until September. I had a rude awakening. I had read a pamphlet about Saul Alinsky but I just blew it off. Then one day I Googled it. I also Googled ‘The Cloward-Pivan Strategy. My eyes became focused and everything became clear.

      Your last paragraph asked a question. “How do you bring awareness to people, it seems, would rather be in the dark?” JUST LIKE THIS. Welcome to the light. 😉
