Legacy Media Asks Jewish Convoy Organizer To Respond to “White Nationalist” Accusation

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on March 2, 2022

The attacks against the Freedom Convoy and its organizers have not ceased since Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government invoked the Emergencies Act and had the police violently break up the peaceful protest around Parliament. 

Just today Freedom Convoy organizer Benjamin Dichter was messaged by Sarah Smellie  journalist from Canadian Press asking him to answer “people who study” far-right movements who are accusing him of being an “extremist” and or a “white nationalist.”

After Smellie blatantly showed she intended to poison the well against Dichter she then asks him further questions on whether or not he thought the Freedom Convoy was a success and if he was planning on organizing another movement.

Just from the way Smellie asked her questions and leaned on the knowledge of supposed experts to put an accusation of bigotry at Dichter’s feet to answer, there was no chance she was acting in good faith. 

Dichter is Jewish and has stated that he is Jewish several times over the course of the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa in response to leftist activists and journalists trying to smear the convoy as a ‘far-right’ movement full of ‘neo-Nazis’ and ‘white supremacists.’

It was obvious that no matter how Dichter responded to Smellie she was still going to write a story using quotes from ‘experts’ asserting he is a “white nationalist” and even if Dichter denies the ridiculous charge against him, the accusation alone was designed to make it seem like a reasonable thing to believe about him – a Jewish Canadian.

Like Dichter said in his tweet people need to start turning off legacy media. The “journalists” who work for those government-subsidized networks are not at all objective, and often are seeking to destroy opponents of the liberal establishment in Canada on behalf of the government. 

Any journalist who is asking a Jewish person about being a white nationalist based on accusations of “people who study far-right movements” and doesn’t bother to question their political motives is not a real journalist.
