City TV News is now claiming that the truckers' convoy rally causes PTSD to racialized people. The claim is based on the position that the protesters are racist. The video does not reference a single quote, soundbite, comment from the rally. Why? Because there is nothing racist about the rally, the convoy, the protesters. The media is desperate to find any form of racism and relies on absurd lies when there are no facts to support their claim. The only " evidence " of racism at the rallies was photos of the same flag carrier. It is not clear if the meaning of the flag was that the government policy was Nazi like or if the person supports Nazi ideals. It also not known if the flag carrier is racialized or not or if they have any affiliation with the protesters. Anti semitism is rampant in Muslim communities and groups like the Black Hebrew Israelites. A Nazi flag carrier can be of any color and group and it is racist to claim they must be white. The movement had no connection to this anonymous flag carrier. No conversation or interview was held with this unknown person. However, CITY news is claiming that this is causing people of colour (POC ) PTSD. How? No explanation was provided. The video focuses on Birgit UmIgba who asks people " what is stopping you from having more than one Black friend ". This is a curios question that seems to lack any facts and purpose. Who says white people have only one black friend and why is that important? The news presenter, Sarah Chew, also tries to link a tweet sent to Birgit to show " hate ". The tweet advised Birgit that "If you don't like it go back to Africa. White people value protest ." No context was provided. The interviewee is lobbed softball questions by Chew with a clear purpose: spread anti white hate. This messaging is consistent with Birgit's social media activity. The nurse does not have many good things to say about Ontario or white people. I don't know where she is from or much about her background but it's reasonable to project she earns over 100k per year. This would make her one of the wealthiest people on the planet yet she seems to hate everything about the system in which she thrives. On Twitter Birgit has claimed with no evidence that white kids are acting in a racist way at the protests. See her tweet. Birgit Umaigba RN, MEd @birgitomo The most disturbing part of the occupation led by the "freedom" convoy has been watching children hold hate signs alongside their parents. This has been particularly worrisome. The nurse also claims that seem to aligned with anti white hate. Birgit Umaigba RN, MEd @birgitomo Black people continue to encounter interruptions & dismissal when sharing experiences on racism. These interruptions come from white people who claim to be "non-racist". With overly sensitive ears, they come at us, "correct" our narrative because the truth is too uncomfortable. The " news story " does not examine why the Nazi flag would trigger people of colour but not impact Jewish people. The news story also offers a solution. Counseling. Specialized counseling with a twist. People with a discriminatory preference to have a counselor who looks like them, non white, can be accommodated. This race based performance promotes hate and anti white racism which is ironic. Martin Luther King had an inspirational dream. He famously shared that he wanted his children to be judged on the content of their character, not their skin colour. MLK wanted meritocracy, not racial segregation. Today this dog whistle for anti white hate is common: "services by someone who looks like me. " This really means judging people by their skin color, not the content of their character and when judging, be anti white. Of course this goes against King, human rights principles, and destoys a society attempting to be unified. It also is an attack on white employment opportunities. This is unconscionable yet it promoted on main stream media by City News by " journalists " like Sarah Chew with no shame. The video attempts to engage in anti-White fear mongering yet the only violence associated with the movement has been by a person linked to Antifa by a BIPOC. The person of colour who reports claim used a jeep to attack peaceful protesters in Winnepeg is David Zegarac. The man is well associated with left wing, radical movements. However, this is not the hate that concerns CBC or City News so don't expect counseling or concern from the media for the protesters. Again, the Nazi flag is never linked to the rally and no evidence of anything racist spoken during the event was presented in the " news " video. The only hate seems to come from those against the protesters, not the protesters. The objective seems to be to demonize whites and victimize non whites. Classic City TV.
