The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) argues that the thought police should do a better job removing Ben Shapiro’s content because his speech is too dangerous.
CBC, which is essentially Canada’s NPR, ran an article accusing Shapiro of radicalizing young men and leading them to dark, dark places.
Here is an actual line that a state-fed reporter printed:
“Although Shapiro is not affiliated with any hate groups, experts in media, gender studies and young men’s radicalization say the commentator’s content is prevalent in extremist communities online.”
When experts in gender studies say so, Radio-Canada prints it.
The play does not explain what Shapiro does to the young men. The author simply quotes random quotes that say Shapiro makes listeners more racist, sexist, and anti-LGBT.
But the facts don’t matter. It was a hit play.
Most of the article is political. CBC also does not care about the radicalization of young people. If so, it would also have included the far-left media brands that lied about the convoy of truckers at the behest of viscous Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
And despite what the press reports, leftist crazies have become radicalized. Look at this nut:
CBC – just like media companies here in the United States – is so embarrassed by the rising voices of independent media that contradict the messages it promotes.
CBC doesn’t like that listeners also have the option of consuming Shapiro — who has 9.4 million subscribers and followers on YouTube and Twitter — in addition to any like-minded leftist outlets, like Slate.
Censorship is about controlling forms of messaging. Shapiro, who has the most downloaded political podcast, is a threat to that very message.
It’s also been harder to undo because its opinions don’t lean sideways, as they say at Andrew Tate. There is nothing more dangerous to the mainstream media than a conservative voice that a media outlet cannot easily label as alt-Right.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation would prefer a single opinion for all corporate media and for Ben Shapiro’s cancellation.
If Radio-Canada was more pathetic, it would be NPR.
