The ATIP report published by Sheila Gunn Reid documents 165 pages of email conversations between various members of the RCMP discussing who’s saying what about the leaked messages, screenshotting social media posts, and strategizing what sort of damage control they should post in response.
Those being monitored by Trudeau’s police force includes Keean Bexte of The Counter Signal, Greg Re and Tucker Carlson of Fox News, Cosmin Dzsurdzsa and Andrew Lawton of True North, Ezra Levant of Rebel News, Rupa Subramanya of the National Post, and several others.
As many will remember, The Counter Signal published the infamous leaked messages that came from Musical Ride members who were brought in to deal with protesters.
During their conversation, they applauded the trampling of a woman with a horse and indicated they wanted Canadians to fear them while patting themselves on the back for receiving so many luxury services during their stay in Ottawa.
“Time for the protesters to hear our jackboots on the ground,” one officer said.
“Just watched the horse video — that is awesome,” said another officer, adding that she thinks the RCMP “should practice that manoeuvre [trampling old ladies in mobility scooters with horses].”
Another officer indicated he wanted the fun and excitement to continue, texting, “Don’t kick all of them out until next week’s group gets our turn.”
Upon the release of the messages, the RCMP media team responded in emails, saying, “OMG… it’s super bad.”
They also indicated that they had concerns that a whistleblower may be in their midst.
“This could suggest that a member of this chat is sending screenshots,” the media team wrote.
The RCMP subsequently tweeted out that the RCMP officers sending these abhorrent messages don’t represent the RCMP.
