UPDATED… again and again
Another day, another display of abject extremist hate and bile from the CBC.ca web site. (Just yesterday I presented some prime examples).
The state-owned, taxpayer-funded CBC.ca reports that Republican U.S. Senator Jesse Helms died today, and not minutes later, the rabid hate starts to spew from the CBC’s far-leftist haters as they rush to express their hate and extreme intolerance … and CBC.ca approves all of them.

No offence, actually offence. Good riddens you old buzzard.

I just wish he had lived long enough to see Dr. Morgentaler receive the Order of Canada Award. Then he could have died of apoplexy.

made my day.
Note how this one apparently wishes death on all conservatives (whom he calls “his kind”) , and the CBC approves it:
Posted 2008/07/04 at 12:31 AM ET
Former U.S. senator Jesse Helms dies
Ya. And so?
Who cares! One less of his kind is better for mankind!
This one displays not just the run-of-the-mill CBC.ca commenter’s extreme intolerance and hate but is particularly anti-Christian at the same time, making for a perfect CBC.ca comment:

Have fun with Falwell.
This one laments that Helms died peacefully. CBC approves it.
Posted 2008/07/04 at 12:38 AM ET
…….a hard right republican and evil man. it is a shame that he died peacefully. He caused so much suffering for others…..
No to RIP
And this one lone voice of reason, who is destined to be slammed by all other commenters there:

I’m amazed at the lack of tolerance and civility here. Since the posters seem to be exhibiting are typical Canadian smugness about being more ‘caring’ and ‘tolerant’ than our neighbours to the south, while firing off comments that lack both, it seems that we have little to be smug about.
Whatever the man’s policies, someone loved him and is missing him right now-my sympathies to them.
For the other posters who are convinced of the ‘rightness’ of their ‘leftness’, your comments suggest you may have had more in common with Mr. Helms, attitude-wise than you’d care to admit. If you want to convince his intellectual descendants of the error of their ways, this sort of bashing isn’t the way to do it.
As to the issue of Cuba, I’m pleased to see reforms beginning to be implemented and I’ll leave it to future historians to debate whether it was Senator Helms or Canadian sun chasers who helped make that happen.
The passage of time creates an excellent vantage point for making judgments.
This once again helps prove that CBC.ca is one of the most hateful and divisive web sites I’ve ever encountered.
And my contention that state-owned and state-run media should be banned in this country, and that notion should be enshrined in our constitution.
But don’t get up.
They’re really piling on now with their far-left hateful mob and swarm mentality. I can almost guarantee you that few if any of these haters know the first thing about Jesse Helms but for the fact that he was a Republican and an American.

When you get to hell, give my regards to Jerry Falwell, you biggoted peice of republican trash.

j jesse helms was a great mam, so were hitler, stalin and pol pot. and might i also add, geo. bush.it is not a matter of good or bad, simplely a matter of degree.
The CBC actually chose to approve this one just now (I suppose it brings our nation together and exhibits our taste for Americans and conservatives, or something):

MonctonFella – Hitler had some loved ones too. So did Caucescu and Nero and Geoffrey Dahmer.
Don’t be a fool. This man was out to destroy the world and I’m supposed to shed a tear for his loved ones? If we had time to care for every person on earth that’d be great but we don’t. So good riddance to this American retard.
Two hateful moonbats think alike:

hey hey hey
This one does the full CBC monty: anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, and anti-Ann Coulter to boot. Huh.

Rest assured that as this relic passes on, we are sure to see another just like him step up to the plate to continue his spewing his old-world BS. As long as there are far right-wing christian republicans (are there any other types??) we can expect no changes …..and as far as I can tell, the REP’s have attempted to step-up their vitriol for all those who lean slightly left of center (damn godless liberals I often hear quoted by the likes of Ann Coulter etc.)
Here’s another example of original far-leftists “thinking” (reminding me of Barrack Obama and the Obamatons in many ways…):

Or find your MP by postal code. Maybe send an email. Nah. the CBC is an institution.
Last update (5:36 PM PT):
I’ve read every one of the now nearly 90 comments on the article at the CBC site, and here’s the thing: nearly all of them—and I mean nearly 100 percent of them—are like the negative hateful comments above. This is by no means the first time this has happened on this CBC site. It’s completely common. I pointed out just yesterday some similar CBC reader comments on a totally different topic.
The CBC web site is like the angry, vile, intolerant, hate club of the extreme left. Which we pay for.
When you’ve got a web site whose readers and commenters are almost universally that hateful, extremist, angry, vile, and intolerant, then you’ve got a serious problem with your web site, its direction, its tone, and its readership. The universality of the comments—the almost identically common and extremely negative vitriol that prevails amongst all the commenters (in fact as I’ve shown some are EXACTLY the same)—is what would concern me. There are almost no views contrary to the hateful extreme left-wing mob views I’ve exemplified above.
It would lead me to question the tone and substance of the whole web site and what might have led to this disgraceful almost universally horrible tone of the site’s participants.
When this is all obviously officially sanctioned by your own moderator, then clearly this is officially sanctioned by the web site. That’s a serious problem for us as consumers when the site holds itself out to be a mainstream, moderate, fair, and balanced web site altruistically serving the general public interest with no particular bias.
If I didn’t know better, Id say the readers and the moderators are ganging up and trying to sabotage the CBC web site! But I know better. The CBC moderates the comments and accepted every one of those comments above. But then I also know better because I’ve probably been doing this a lot longer than the CBC has, and it’s my own personal cash at stake, here. People (including even the CBC itself, as I’ve documented) don’t think twice about suing me and my site, whereas folks like me would have to think long and hard and have to be very rich before suing the CBC with its virtually endless supply of taxpayer cash (including my own) to pay its lawyers. That’s a big difference.
As I’ve said, the CBC site is one of the most divisive, vile, hateful, extremist, far-left web sites I’ve encountered. It’s a web site I’d warn parent to keep their children away from (and not just because of the reader comments, as I’ve pointed out many times over the years).
But moreover, when you couple all that with the sad fact that it’s a state-owned, state-run, taxpayer-funded CBC.ca web site, we’ve all got a serious problem, here.
Once again: Find your MP by postal code.
This thing needs to be shut down.
