CALGARY, Alberta, Canada, May 31, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― Canada’s national broadcaster has been using social media popular with teens to introduce the young to harmful vices.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) first signed a deal with Snapchat in late 2017 and then created a deeper relationship with the photo-sharing platform in 2018. Since then the tax-funded media organization has been using raunchy Snapchat clickbait to get users, primarily teenagers, to answer quizzes or read articles about fringe sexual behaviours and drug use.
Last week, Keean Bexte, 25, of The Rebel Media explained to viewers that 90 percent of Snapchat users are aged between 13 and 24 and some are even younger. Predominantly female, Snapchat users use the platform for an average of 40 minutes every day. Snapchat makes its money through advertising, and the CBC partnered with the business to attract younger readers.
“Now the CBC is not using Snapchat the way it uses Twitter or Facebook,” Bexte explained, “where there are real, critical adults scrutinizing their state-funded work.”
“The CBC is using Snapchat to speak directly to kids like a predator would if he were in a kid’s home if the parents weren’t there,” he continued. “Uncensored raw degeneracy.”
Among the stories being offered for the kids’ perusal is one, advertised with a photo of two young women gazing mistily at each other, about the benefits of “smoking narcotics before intercourse” and another, showing a man in bondage gear, about the sexual attractiveness of disabled people. Still another, published in full here, introduces kids to the concept of polygamy.
“I’m not exaggerating,” said Bexte. “The CBC urgently and repeatedly serves the 13-year-old boys of Canada clickbait to tell them how admirable it is to watch their future girlfriend run off and have sex with other men.”
To get the teens to read the actual story, the broadcaster’s Snapchat add briefly introduces “Alicia” and “Tristan” and then flirtatiously invites the children to “meet more non-monogamous daters.”
Bexte emphasized that Snapchat is used by teens and that the CBC knows it.
“This is explicitly directed at children,” he stated. “The CBC has read all of the metrics. They know who they’re serving these sex stories to.”
The young journalist was relieved that, when the CBC asked its Snapchat readers if they would try polygamy, 72 percent of them say no.
“Sex, drugs, pedophilia, disabled BDSM porn, underage porn consumption: the CBC is using a platform of kids to normalize degeneracy to Canadian youth,” Bexte said as he scrolled through a host of CBC snapchat ads featuring fetish gear, syringes, neon XXX, guns, gay cartoon characters, and sultry glances. “But don’t worry. We can actually stop them. Take your kid’s phone from them right now.”
