FOX News Lied & Said Quebec Shooter Was Arab. Canada’s Response Is PERFECT

The Canadian government has officially stepped in to stop the spread of poisonous lies from conservative propaganda factory Fox News. After the recent terrorist attack at a mosque in Quebec, Fox News published a tweet announcing that the suspect was of Moroccan origin.

The initial tweet was disingenuous – two men were arrested and deemed suspects while only one was of Moroccan origin. When the man of Moroccan origin was deemed a witness, not a suspect, Fox published another tweet saying that one man had been released and another was still held as a suspect. They made no mention that the man of Moroccan origin was released and neglected to mention that the remaining suspect was French Canadian.

Fox News finally deleted their tweet blaming the man of Moroccan origin who did nothing wrong, admitting that they had misled the public. America under the new Donald Trump Administration is too corrupt to stand up to Fox News’s ingrained love of marginalizing and demonizing minorities, so Canada is forced to do it for us.

That being said, we commend Prime Minister Trudeau and his staff for refusing to let minority members of their community be vilified, even in countries beyond Canada’s borders. It is just unfortunate that it apparently takes a tremendous amount of uproar to convince Fox News to (at least in public) respect the right to existence of minorities in the West.
