The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 4

I had caught a supporter of Nora Loreto doing a lie, which was fake news.

The lie purported that Celeste Leray-Leicht (a Humboldt Broncos mother) was being mobbed with hate email and social media text messages.

The steps of this fake news occured like this:

1) Denise Balkisson (@balkisson) had linked to “PARENTS OF JACOB LEICHT FIND PURPOSE IN THE FACE OF TRAGEDY” by Ken Campbell, from The Hockey News, as part of her tweet:

2) The Twitter user @trapdinawrpool next used the screencapture from Denise’s tweet, and retweeted the image with the fake news claim that a Humboldt Broncos mother was being mobbed.

Below is the screencapture:

The tweet from @trapdinawrpool was exactly versed as: “The mob now turns its blood lust toward the mother of a deceased Humboldt player. This has never been about respect for the dead and their families but instead serving a white supremacist world view.”

Finally, Nora Loreto retweeted the fake news from @trapdinawrpool:

Nora had retweeted a fake claim from the Twitter user @trapdinawrpool because, obviously, the fake news had fit her own narrative of herself being a victim and that a mob was being irrational.

However, Nora is a terrible journalist for not vetting what is real news versus fake news from her Twitter fans. A real journalist has to assess the content that one of her fans blurbs. This is called having journalistic standards.

The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 3

Many Canadians are now familiar with the Humboldt Broncos bus crash near the town of Tisdale, Saskatchewan.

16 people (10 of whom were the hockey players) were killed by the collision of a semi transport truck with the bus of the Humboldt Broncos. The location of this terrible collision was at the intersection of Highway 335 and Highway 35 in Saskatchewan.

As well, many Canadians became acquainted with Nora Loreto’s infamous tweet. It was a posturing statement that first demonstrated a moralizing Social Justice, and then a very weak condolence toward the Humboldt Broncos.

Nora had to tweet: “The Humboldt Tragedy is so terrible. I know that’s obvious but there’s really not much more to say.

However, she didn’t stop with ‘there’s not much more to say‘, but continued to yap:

I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”


She next embarked on a daily Twitter campaign to display herself as a victim. Of course, Nora had called anyone a Nazi and White Supremacist while doing this self absorbed effort to seem like a victim.

The words ‘Nazis’ and ‘White Supremacy’ were overused by Nora Loreto. Her incessant usage had made these words noise.

I liked this guy’s correction of her frequent overuse of ‘Nazis’:


It also doesn’t matter that he made a typo with ‘appropriate’. He made his point.
