Reporter Admits Covering Up Chants of “Heil Hitler” at Pro-Hamas Rally

Hear no evil. See no evil. Report no evil.

When it’s Hamas supporters anyway.

When I posted the video of anti-Israel protesters chanting “Heil Hitler” at pro-Israel supporters during Ezra Levant’s rally in Calgary Thursday (see here) you absolutely knew there was no way that attending media didn’t witness it and stayed silent – now we have proof that at least one did exactly that.

While reading this piece “Silent vigil Palestinian solidarity” I noticed Calgary Herald reporter Erika Stark omitted the fact that Israel supporters were attacked even after referencing the event where it happened:

Meanwhile on Twitter, Stark ever so delicately drops a tiny little hint that something a tad uncouth may be happening on the pro-Hamas side.

Is that what reporters do now? They don’t report? People on Twitter had some thoughts on that.

    Now if Tea Party individuals were shouting something like that…it would be tweeted by every journalist.

    The media does not get a pass on their hypocrisy. They may go along with the constriction of politically correct speech codes – we don’t.

    Freedom of speech – Freedom of religion. Two freedoms under attack by leftists.

      Why have these IslamoNazis in the West? They are not fashion hounds nor will these 6th century Hitlers assist a 21st C West to advance further. Some will, those who rise above their trained hate, but most will only generate more hate.

      Rush Limbaugh was called a racist by the Left in 1995 when he stated on his show that if immigrants enjoy being in the US, go home and make your own version of the US. But they cannot because of their vile hate mongering leaders and Imams

      The left believes in freedom of speech for them only.

    Oh, dear, her spoiled little brats are misbehaving in public – what to do?

  • Alisia S

    They didn’t report it because it doesn’t fit their agenda which is to cast Palestinians and Hamas as perpetual victims of Israeli occupation and aggression. The major media outlets like CNN want to carefully focus public attention toward a Leftist perspective here just as they do on illegal immigration, Obamacare, and a host of other issues.

  • roccolore

    It’s not a peace rally without asslifters, Jew-haters, or rioters.

    Erika Stark is a good reporter.

    She is reporting some of the facts and massaging the reality of the situation so the liberati get their desired results, no Israel and Middle East Peace. This is the Holy Grail of liberal foreign policy.

    Afterwards longer term they will keep massaging the news until the Muslim masses are good little liberals and Nirvana is reached. After all he Muslims will be better predisposed to us after Israel is gone.

    That is the plan any way.

    there was a reporter, iirc, when the hindenberg blew up, who was drinking in a downtown bar, phoned in that the derrigible had landed routinely…at least his boss had the decency to fire him

  • not

    the left, including media, are getting bolder and much more up front with their bigotry. (see Obama and his ‘OFAY’ money)

    by next year this ‘reporter’ will be joining the chants and tweeting orgasmic support for fascists and the glorious socialist revolution.

    “…if it helps, pretend they’re conservatives” Very well put.

    We don’t need any Nazis here.

    You realize when you troll some sites they can grab your IP address. I have seen it happen. It happened to a staffer of a U.S. senator. He resigned. The Senator moved on with new staff. SO have fun while you can. You never know who you might meet.

    If they are really upset they will get cracking and trace it past proxies.
