The Fall of Postmedia News
On the front page of today's Vancovuer Province was the headline Man shot by police was former Falun Gong activist. The breaking news was not the fact that someone accused of armed robbery was shot dead by police in Burnaby after stabbing a police officer and a store employee. That was old news. The front page breaking news was the fact that he was a Falun Gong activist and participated in the Tiananmen Square protest.
So this must mean that Falun Gong activists are crazy and the Communist government of China is justified for holding them political prisoners and executing them for their organs right? Wrong. It is more absurd propaganda which is exactly what the state run newspapers in Communist China do. This was a white guy from Calgary who went to China and supported a Falun Gong protest over ten years ago and hasn't had anything to do with the group since.
They even had the audacity to cite the fact that he was involved in the Tiananmen Square protest in 2001. Does that mean the Tiananmen square massacre was justified when the Communist government used live ammunition on protesters calling for more freedom in China? Absolutely not.
They weren't even talking about the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989. They were talking about the false flag event set up by the Communist government in 2001 used to defame Falun Gong practitioners so they could rationalize and justify their unlawful imprisonment.
I could understand reading this kind of putrid propaganda in a State run newspaper in Communist China but here in Canada? Does the Communist government now own Postmedia News? Is that what happens when the Chief Editor of the Vancouver Sun takes over the Vancouver Province? Shame on you. That kind of propaganda diminishes all of us. Buyer Beware.
