Bernard the Roughneck proves “the power of the internet is incredible”: Breaking through “obfuscatory” media to tell another side of the story

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

We’ve already posted a small clip of our follow-up interview with Bernard where we heard his response to critics and his words of encouragement for others in the industry who are hurting. 

Now, here is my full interview where we speak in detail about why the industry is so vital to him and all Canadians, his disappointment with the “obfuscatory” mainstream media in Canada and get his thoughts about future prospects of the industry. 

Go to BernardTheRoughNeck.ca for the entire story, including the original interview that made him a "star"!

You know what? Bernard’s hair beats JT’s hair any day. AND, what the hair is attached to is far superior to what JT’s hair is attached to.

Some other issues that the mainstream media are not covering are:

The 350,000 white farmers murdered in South Africa since the end of apartheid.

Official bilingualism at the provincial level in Ontario.

Young black women in South Africa being forced to become pregnant by ANC cadre

You are real brother ….Keep talking and sharing and so will we. At least those of us who “get it.”
You and us are 180 degrees away from the idiot liberals/marxists/progressives now run our country and who hate us. And thanks for that as for me the feeling is mutual.

Al Peterson, that may not be too bad of a system.
It cannot be any worse than the protest vote system we have now (vote for who you hate least).

A system I am thinking of is when people go in to vote, they select their choice from a set of say 50 platform issues. Whichever direction wins for each platform item, the government must execute it. This will prevent them from exercising their personal dogma, or returning the favors to those who paid them off.

So for example, if the Energy East oil pipeline platform issue got more yahs than nahs, then it must go through.

If only our Dear Leader had worked like Bernard has. I always say that I will never vote for anyone who has never done an honest day’s work. Mr Trudeau falls into that camp. He has never laid a pipe, welded a sheet of steel, hammered a nail, shovelled a spec of gravel, sawed a piece of wood. He is totally out of touch with reality.

Yet the Peter Pan who never wants to grow up puts on his condescending adult voice and talks down to people like Bernard and the rest of us as though we are the children. Being voted into office does not make you an adult. His bogus gravitas from drama class fools no one.

I think we should get rid of elections and move to a jury stem where names get drawn and those people serve as MP for the next 4 years. If I can trust a citizen with my legal future, surely I can trust them to run the country for 4 years. Think of all the skulduggery that would come to an end: No trying to curry favour with someone hoping they will get elected and line your pockets or push your agenda. It would save us a whack of money as well. And it would give us much wider cross section of society. I believe the left calls it diversity. Then guys like Bernard would have a go at it. We could do a trial run with the senate. It couldn’t be any worse than the losers we have now.

Bernard for Prime Minister. The nation needs that most lacking of commodities- some common sense.

The rig rant was one of the most powerful graphic messages I’ve seen – had it all , honesty, no pretense, very dynamic at a human level, the honor ,dignity and pride of honest hard work – it was a ballistic shame missile that devastated the snivelling name-calling drones who belittle the oil patch and its culture – Do more of these from the rig Bernie, interview some fellow rig pigs – we’ll get them viral.

I’m sending you a Flames cap so you can lose that Montreal lid in a flare pit. ;-)

He said more in 5 minutes than my mla has said in a year. Rod Loyola yeesh. You should run for city council then run for federal like amarjeet sohi did in Edmonton and took $47000 transfer fee

Please Rebel Media, do us a big favour. KEEP TALKING TO BERNARD. Amazing speaker, great advocate to the oil and gas industry. Give him a column if nessasary.
The proposed bail out for Bombardier, Wow! I’m getting to the point that if its Quebec made, " for that reason, I’m OUT".
commented 2016-02-24 18:20:05 -0500
i still wanna vote for this guy sometime in the future.
commented 2016-02-24 17:55:44 -0500
Keep Bernard and his comments coming. I can’t take credit for this but someone I was listening to on radio last week said that the greatest threat to the environment are the environmentalists. Wonder how they would deal without their medicines, iPhones, and on and on…all made with oil. Hypocrisy to the extreme. And that crazy David Suziki. How about we crowd fund to send him to another planet.

One of the root problems is that government positions are getting infested with ‘professional activists’.

These type of people are on a personal mission to foist their delusional set of higher morals on the people and the country; regardless of the consequences or input from counter arguments.

To them, any means is justified to achieve their unicorny utopian ends.

For example, the delusional line of reasoning… “oils equals bad thus the industry must be eradicated”.
You could pile a stack of evidence on their desk, and they would just shake their head.
The science or truth doesn’t matter to these people.
These are not the type of people you want running the government.

He is the type of man I WANT on my employee list

Glen Reid said, “Trudeau spending billions on Non Canadians, and none for real Canadians. Sickening”

But that is always the way of the left, do precisely the opposite to what is the proper thing to do, the opposite to what is common sense, the opposite to what the right would do.
commented 2016-02-24 15:52:56 -0500
Suicide rate at 35% should say it all. This money coming from Ottawa is window dressing. Bernard is right, the only people this money will benefit is unions, and politicians. Where the people need the money now, how about the government cut laid off workers in the oilfield a check to get them through a little bit. Much cheaper than throwing money wildly at Notley and Wall. Trudeau spending billions on Non Canadians, and none for real Canadians. Sickening
commented 2016-02-24 15:41:18 -0500
Has Notley and her merry band even acknowledged the result of her failed policies on the health and wellbeing of private sector workers? I guess if you don’t share her world view, her answer is: screw you!

To live to work could mean a variad of things, depends on your personal philosophy.
commented 2016-02-24 13:19:27 -0500
Sorry Bernard, I work to live…not live to work. I am not a slave to anyone.
commented 2016-02-24 13:01:09 -0500
I like his quote, “We live to work.”

Of course the Non-Democratic Party of Alberta and their public service unions then extend that quote to, “Damned right you live to work, so that we can tax the hell out of you such that we don’t have to work.”
commented 2016-02-24 12:25:55 -0500
clear, concise, common sense, and no fancy uni degree (I assume). Apparently those schools only teach our politicians how to dance around questions.

Trud-uh should take speaking lessons from Bernard. Not one “uh” from him, unlike our dear leader, who sounds like beavis n butthead.
commented 2016-02-24 12:23:19 -0500
This guy is a gem. So articulate and so right-on. I’m looking forward to his next appearance on thereby.media. Go Bernard!
commented 2016-02-24 11:56:22 -0500
Bernard is a highly intelligent. He is an excellent spokesman for the oil and gas industry, especially coming from the field where the work is done.

Good job, Chris and Bernard!
commented 2016-02-24 11:43:08 -0500
The fact that Bernard has had a platform on the internet to “break through the obfuscatory msm” is exactly why that same media cartel, through the federal crtc censorship bureau, is going to go on a full court press to ‘regulate’ (read; censor) the internet, in general. We are already seeing the opening salvo of that agenda with the blatant censorship now occurring on facebook and twitter to defame and silence any who dare to speak against the approved leftist hate mongers.
I predict that wihin this year you will see sites like The Rebel, Brietbart and too many more to mention, that have effectively blown apart the msm control of the leftist totalitarian narrative, will come under direct attack to either blatantly shut them down or regulate them out of existence.
commented 2016-02-24 11:24:35 -0500
Now, if only our Prime Minister could communicate as well as and know as much as Bernard.

gotta luv this guy … and the hair!
