is The National Post a conservative publication?
The National Post are Cowards!
They DO toss him under the bus. Spencer Fernando is 100% Correct. I read his article this morning on Rex Murphy as poor Rex is assuaged by leftist social wrong-think police dictating what his opinion of Canada ought to be.
We see here the National Post signaling loudly and clearly to the "mob" that they surely intend to be in line, "thinking properly". It's totally disgusting to see a once proud conservative publication, now shamelessly kowtowing to the latest running narrative affected by BLM and ANTIFA terrorists.
You can give Spencer Fernando's article a read here.
TOUGH TIMES TO BE TOUCHING THE "R" SUBJECT.
REX WROTE AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE ABOUT RACISM & CANADA BEING BY AND LARGE A NATION THAT IS DEFINITELY "NON-RACIST". AND HE BRAVELY WRITES DURING A TIME RACISM HAS BECOME ANOTHER "HOT-ITEM" FOR THOSE SENDING VIRTUE SIGNALS AND WISHING TO PROFITEER OFF OF THE SUBJECT, WHETHER THAT IS DIRECTLY FROM BEING A "RACISM SOLUTION-MAKER" OR PROFITING BY MOVING THEIR POLITICAL OR IDEOLOGICAL AGENDAS FORWARD, SIGNALLING BLM OR ANTIFA COMPLIANCE.
NOTICE THOSE TWO "CONTRASTING" VIEWPOINTS NP OFFERS READERS In this article, which I recommend you read here, the NP are doing their livid best to pass the values test and signaling their support for all things "George Floyd" and BLM/ANTIFA- related. Their liberal editors add headline references to two stories offering "contrasting views, from those Rex published when they reposted Rex's article after taking it down. ("for review". ohh please! Cue the exaggerated rolling of my eyes)
By way of a disclaimer, trying to distance themselves from Rex's excellent story, they make sure to offer readers this op-ed piece from "liberal-shrieve" Vanmala Subramaniam which I find quite insulting to Mr. Murphy, and a second one here from equally gestured in rabid syncopation with the "herd's approved group-think officials" Josephine Mathias, in a continued profiteering off of the recent George Floyd tragedy, representing, ostensibly, those who can't stand to see anyone speaking outside their boundaries of permitted ideas.
NP's [National Post's] jumping, onto a current narrative, maybe even mainstream leftist's "main narrative" which is presently circulating content about "racism" ad nauseam, content, that is better constructed for keeping it [racism] around, really, and making more industry out of it. They'd rather posturize and stump on the horror of personal loss and tragedy of the Floyd family's horrible experience, ultimately using it to secure political favor, rather than actually doing anything to drive "racism" into eradication!
So the answer to my headline question above must be a resounding no! No, the National Post is not a conservative publication.
CONSERVATIVE IN NAME ONLY (CINO)
It's something we see all too often, appealing to a large conservative body in Canada to attract business. Pathetic, opportunistic, and downright offensive. Why do we so often allow ourselves to be used like this?
This move is just not in any way a conservative act, and they are not a conservative publication. The way they handled Mr. Murphy's detracting colleagues and his post, shows us expressly how far the National Post has strayed away from any sort of conservative values they may or may not formerly have held, but certainly don't hold or operate in today.
The irony is, that Rex never states "racism doesn't exist inside Canada." Stake-holders at NP need to smarten up! He's high-lighting, and rightfully so, that the "nation" of Canada, our great nation, is NOT a RACIST nation. And in one humble columnist's opinion, he is perfectly correct about it too. This is not going to make NP money in the long run, it's certainly not going to win them any popularity with genuine conservatives. The majority of Canadians know that Rex is right and to the rest of you? Wake up, and get over yourselves. So far as that Josephine Matthias's piece too? Fa-GET-a-bout it! Don't you recognize cancel-culture in action? Can you see the bullying going on? It's "Conform to our narrative or be canceled, ostracised, expelled, and ruined"! That's all this is about.
NP's [National Post's] use of two far-left shills, effectively bleating against the man who is brave enough to decry the demand to group-think by far-left ideologues. That's all this is about.
Virtue-signaling and pandering to their interest groups, which, are laboring overtime to make themselves room in the "acceptance-lounge" part of the brain, rather than the "protest-lounge" areas of the brains of Canadians. Canadians, I might add, who are more than a little worn out and tired of all the fighting this plandemic has fostered in the world.
Good on you Rex to show us exactly the kind of courage we need to embrace, grow, and to possess, in order to effectively push back against the mandatory narratives that are demanding we conform to the hive.
Take heart though my fellow Canadians, an election is brewing, and there is Dr. Lewis a candidate who could bring us all that win against Trudeau we are all thirsty for! Then we will see a move back to old-norms begin! Check out my recent interview with Dr. Lewis here.
Precisely why we need an alternative to the MSM. The National Post is CLEARLY, NOT, the conservative publication I once gave them credit for being that's a certainty. Best we see it on display though, and I won't be surprised they see a falling away of subscribers for attacking Rex Murphy. Or who knows? Maybe Rex will make a departure and it will give rise to better things that will grow, catch on fast and overshadow NP?
There'd be some justice.
