Jagmeet The Press: Rough CBC Interview For New NDP Leader

Jagmeet Singh & reporter Terry Milewski have a tense exchange discussing the Air India bombing.

In an interview with Power & Politics on CBC, new NDP leader Jagmeet Singh was repeatedly asked the following question by reporter Terry Milewski: Is it acceptable for Talwinder Singh Parmar – who Milewski refers to as the architect of the Air India Bombings and Canada’s worst mass murderer – to be held up as a martyr and have posters of him displayed in a positive manner?

Singh was asked the question four separate times. Each time, he chose not to give a yes or no answer, instead trying to direct the conversation onto his vague Trudeau-style talking points – though he did clearly denounce the bombing as he has in the past. Watch the tense exchange below:

Jagmeet Singh wanted the interview questions ahead of time.

Before the interview began, Terry Milewski tweeted that Jagmeet Singh wanted the interview questions ahead of time, and threatened to cancel the interview if he didn’t get them.

Milewski also tweeted after the interview was over, drawing attention to Singh’s response to the question on Air India bomber martyr posters:

Insane political correctness: Far left attacks Milewski as “racist”

While Conservative politicians regularly get brutally grilled by the media, whenever someone on the left has a tough interview, leftists go crazy. Milewski is a tough interviewer, and asks tough questions of everybody regardless of their background or political ideology. And yet, only now – after asking tough questions of Singh – is the left now attacking him as a racist.

Others pushed back against the crazy political correctness:

Others pointed out that Milewski goes after everybody:

No political leader should be immune from criticism

Jagmeet Singh is like any politician, and he is not immune from criticism. The idea that Milewski is racist for asking questions of Singh is insane, and represents how out-of-control political correctness has become. This appears to be the tactic of the far-left: Call all criticism of Singh illegitimate of by accusing his critics of being racist. We need to make sure that tactic doesn’t work, because all prospective Canadian leaders must be willing to face tough questions.
