National Post runs mosque visit hit-piece on Jason Kenney as revenge for Trudeau

When Sun News ran a piece outing Liberal leader Justin Trudeau for campaigning at an extremist mosque, the National Post’s Jonathan Kay went ballistic:

For a while now, Sun News has been doing its best to portray Justin Trudeau as a sort of Islamist fifth columnist. This week, one Sun host told viewers that Trudeau is in thrall on Mideast issues to a “Saudi-born Muslim extremist” who “supports” terrorists. The same host warns darkly that there are three times as many Muslim voters in Canada as Jews.

This is not surprising, since some of the network’s journalists seem to regard themselves as semi-official members of Stephen Harper’s opposition-research team. And since many Sun viewers already suspect that Trudeau was born in Kenya along with Barack Obama, its Muslim Menace programming presumably plays well to the network’s base. (see here)

And Kay’s co-worker Tristin Hopper was more than happy to jump on:

So if it was racist, non-story to the National Post, why then did Hopper get the ok to run this about Conservative minister Jason Kenney?:

In mid-February, immigration minister Jason Kenney toured a Toronto-area Islamic centre tied to Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat (ISIJ), a Toronto-area organization put on notice by the York Regional Police for disseminating anti-Semitic literature.

“Yes the visit took place, and no one was aware of the affiliation at the time,” Ana Curic, spokeswoman for Mr. Kenney, wrote in a Friday night email to the Post. (see here)

By the National Post’s own journalistic standards this also makes Hopper an Islamophobe and a semi-member of Trudeau’s research team – Kay will certainly post a scathing column saying so right?

    KENNY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER. IT WAS A TONE DEAF MOVE AFTER YEARS AND YEARS OF KNOWING WHO AND WHAT RADICAL ISLAM IS. THESE ARE TRUDEAU’S CONSTANT GAFFES NOT KENNY’S UNTIL NOW.

    Kay is a waste of a good vocabulary.

    Well, that did not take long DW–Trudeau’s minions must be checking all of the internet looking for his name. Of course, nothing was said about Trudeau standing his son in one hand in a dangerous stunt and was put on the Vancouver Sun. If it was anyone else, they would have been arrested after someone sent a selfie of both.

    Look for this strategy to be repeated all the way up to the election. Trudeau is a Bidenesque walking talking gaffe machine. The only defense the media has for him is to find something similar a conservative may have done to even the score.

    Never happened when Harper was running for party leadership or as party leader.

    Juxtapose at how the media treated Harper when he was The Great Paul Martins opponent – you never ever saw them play the even up game.

    Instead they played the trump it up game – amplifying any perceived mistake that Harper made.

      Agreed, the Media Party are gonna cover for their candidate Trud Jr at every turn, wipe his shoes of the constant excrement he steps in, while simultaneously attacking Conservatives at every turn. If Canadians thought the Media Party were diseased and corrupt before, just wait till they see the lengths the media will go to get the moron with the infamous name into the PMO… its gonna be very ugly.
