On Sunday night six people were massacred and a number of others wounded when a man opened fire with an automatic weapon in a mosque in Quebec City.
Initial reports quoted witnesses as saying that there were multiple gunmen, and that they shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as they fired into the crowd. By the following morning, however, the Narrative had completely shifted: there was only one attacker, a white Quebecois; the other man who had initially been arrested (named Mohamed) had morphed into a witness. The legacy media immediately discovered “likes” for Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen on the accused shooter’s social media accounts, and proclaimed him a “right-wing terrorist” who may even have been inspired by the election of Donald Trump.
The current version of the story is strongly reminiscent of what happened after Anders Behring Breivik committed his massacre in Norway in July 2011. The crime is suspiciously convenient for Prime Minister Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau, who is trying to get a law through Parliament that would make it illegal to insult Islam.
In fact, the first fallout from the mosque massacre may already have occurred, with the arrest of a man in Montreal for posting hateful remarks about Muslims on social media.
So what really happened that night? Why did the Narrative do a sudden 180-degree turn? Why was “Allahu Akhbar” so quickly forgotten? What was the real role of the “witness” named Mohamed?
Given the fact that Quebec is a leftist multicultural stronghold, and that Canada currently has a far-left Islamophilic prime minister, we’ll probably never learn the answers to these questions. But Faith Goldy of TheRebel.media hasn’t given up trying:
