Anti-gay cake hoax is the latest fake “hate crime” — while REAL victims are ignored

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you hear about the gay pastor in Austin, Texas? He claimed he ordered a cake with the pro-gay marriage slogan “love wins” on it in icing, but the Whole Foods bakery actually wrote “love wins fag” on it.

The pastor filed a massive lawsuit. More than 10,000 news stories were written about this "hate crime."

Except… the cake was in a box with a see-through cover. It’s amazing that he even bought the cake without noticing the slur on top. That’s almost — what’s the word? — unbelievable.

Whole Foods made public the security camera video of pastor buying the hate cake. And it proves the pastor was lying.

Hardly a day goes by without a similar hoax making headlines. Why do the perpetrators do it? Some are just hucksters, but there’s also nothing higher on the ladder of life these days than being a victim. The funny thing is, there are real victims all over the world, raped and killed by ISIS, for example.

But America and Canada are so victim-free, that we have to invent them to feed the outrage industry...

Government pensions are a pyramid scheme that’s almost gone broke. Even undoing Harper’s modest reforms on eligibility ages, as the Liberals are doing, will cost $11 billion a year, every year. My guest Professor Ian Lee says that, instead of putting the retirement age back down to 65, Trudeau should raise it 70, and explains why.

Conservative MP Garnett Genuis talks about the weird fervour with which Trudeau’s Liberals are pushing euthanasia. Genuis agrees that some Liberals are euthanasia “extremists” and says even some people who are in favour of assisted suicide need to know "the fine print" in the Liberals' plan. It’s scary.

And of course, I end up with your message to me, the positive and the negative!

@ Matthew and Dale: OAS didn’t have to be raised to age 67 , nor mail put into public theft-boxes, to balance the budget. While that was in the works, the CBC was still getting $1 billion a year from the Harper government. Countless government employees were still raking in over $100,000 a year from the Harper government, and we weren’t permitted to know who they were (and are). No, they didn’t have to devolve Canada into 3rd World mail and pension status to balance the budget; it was just easier (so they thought) than dealing with the entrenched privilege enjoyed by the many thousands of people sucking off the public teat The truth is, Harper was never a real conservative, just a blue liberal who identified with those people, not us.

Andrew if you care about choice then why can’t a man dissolve all rights to a baby and not have to pay anything, and sorry but lies and bigotry by gay people to make themselves out to be victims is an attack on others. Do other people not matter? What if you were falsely accused?

Michael Doll that sounds damn good to me, but our pathetic legal system would never let that happen.

Given that hate crimes today involve bullying and abuse of power I would love to see hate crimes based on hatred of ideology

The “Humanitarian” left would be so guilty of this, especially the “humanitarian” LGBT group.

Look how much hate and bullying they do against any public person who believes one should consider the rights of others and use the washroom based on what gender parts you have, not what gender you identify with.

The LGBT crowd got commentator Curt Shilling fired for saying this

“The box is still sealed” – he repeated that line at least 7 times.

Just my suspicion but if I were a private investigator on the “taht takes the cake” file I would not discount the possibility that it was an inside job with the cake maker getting a kickback from the lawsuit…why else would he risk dismissal?…….And I just have to ask….did anybody think to slice into it to see if it was a fruitcake?

Just by the way the age plus service equalling 85 is a common misconception….that is a formula for calculating cost when justifying the creation of a new public service position…it is not the requirements for a pension.

“I confidently predict that the assisted-suicide legislation now being proposed will go the same way. A few years after being enacted, it will have been so watered down that anyone will be able to get an assisted suicide simply because they’re feeling bummed about who made it to the playoffs that year. A few years after that. no one will even ask and we will have assisted-suicide-on-demand just like we have abortion-on-demand today. "

Good. This choice should be made by the individual, not the government.

I am outraged that the Rebel is outraged because someone else is outraged about nothing.

You’re not a good rightist if you can’t have a discussion without everyone walking away angry. Even if nobody knows why, everyone must be angry.

@ Kenneth . . .
“who takes this country from 1st World status to 3rd World Status.” . . . ?
Is that why the NY Times said in 2014 “Canadian Middle Class Wealthiest on the Planet”?
Who is taking us to 3rd World Status ? Justin . . . just like ole Dad did in the 70s !

“ending home mail delivery for thousands of people” ? ? ?
Didn’t that start in the 90s? Was it not the Cretch who instituted Neighborhood Boxes?

What created the Turdough win? Obama’s Facebook warriors spent 9 months in Canada helping the feckless Justin. The lame-stream Media went full on for Justin . . . as did the clueless Unions.
And who is going to pay for the 100s of Billions the Drama Teacher will add to Canada’s DEBT?
Why the under 45 morons who voted for the Clown !

I’m going to file a human rights complaint. Dammit, I want to be a victim like everyone else and I can’t find any one to victimize me except for Hydro One, the Ontario Ministry of Health, three levels of government , the banks, credit card companies, big box stores and my dog Clinton. The problem is that those entities are victimizing everyone so I can’t claim to be special in any way. So why didn’t Shaw call the referee an angry old white guy? Then I could have lost a whole nights sleep crying in my pillow because “words matter” and I would have been so offended and traumatized that I could then join that big club of victims out there enjoying life to the fullest. I demand that the world stop this cruel nonvictimaphobia and let me in. I demand my right to be offended and deeply hurt and I want fair compensation for the pain and suffering that is not being inflicted on me.

There are many reasons why people pull these hate crime hoaxes. The reason the mainstream media pick up on these hoaxes (& ignore others) is because it fits their narrative & that’s the only thing that’s important to them.

Trudeau changed the pension age in order to buy votes. The Liberals don’t care about the cost. They care about getting power at any cost & keeping power at any cost.

Hey native kids, don’t kill yourselves, let the government do it for you – because Liberals.

KENNETH LAWRENCE – Nice little rant but unfortunately Harper was right about those policies. There simply isn’t going to be enough money available in the future to fund those programs. The Feds used pension money for decades as general revenue instead of saving it. All the while lecturing us about how they had to do it because people wouldn’t save for their own retirement. At this point we are robbing peter to pay Paul’s Social Insurance.

I know you want to get yours. You were promised. You paid into it. There is no money though so it will just be added to the debt and future generations will slave away to pay for it even though they will never see a pension themselves.

When are we gonna learn that socialism doesn’t work?

Btw I am not a conservative supporter. Government IS the problem regardless of the branding.

The cake should have had “GAY IS NORMAL” written on it! The greatest threat to the militants in the gay movement is declaring gay normal. You see , they have to be something different , something special in order to be a minority .In order to be noticed , in order to be victims. In order to be protected by the Protector Class of liberals.
If they are just normal, just average , they have nothing to rant about . Boy does that piss them off!!

The flip side is thank God for the technology which people seem to forget about about but occasionally is a life saver.

I’m glad this guy was caught on cam. It is a sad day we are living in when we have to rely on technology to protect us from false and vicious attempts to perpetuate a viral propaganda myth for which he no doubt would have benefited with a sizeable settlement. To see him feign this self righteous rage was totally disgusting. I hope they march him before his congregation and sue his defrocking pants off.

Last week the Ottawa media and politicians milked a story about “hate graffiti” spray-painted on the wall of a Muslim school; TV interviews with teachers, shows of solidarity, etc. etc.

Much ado about nothing. The dickhead with the spray-can was either just a little pudd-puller who wanted to get a reaction, or, a Muslim who wanted to generate some sympathy/advantage. Either way, the press obliged. The little pudd-puller got his surrogate center-fold and choked his chicken for two or three days, or, the budding muzzie-wug gained a bit of traction.

Drew – the way I look at such stories is that if something is illegal then faking that crime (to frame another, or for personal gain) should have at the same penalties as those that would be caused by a guilty finding in the original crime. If the advocates for something do not call for rigorous prosecution of false crimes, then they don’t take the original crime seriously.

In this case, the false bigotry led to a lawsuit (attempting to gain monetary advantage) and defamation. Whole Foods brand has been damaged within a community of interest to them. The desired cost to Whole Foods is in the multi-million dollar range. There isn’t a debtors prison anymore, but if the individual who masterminded this fraud can be proven then it would only be fair that they be ruined for life.

And of course the MSM promotes this hatred – their job is to tell you what to think, not to report on what has happened.

All part of the brainwashing – CBC is head of “what Canadians will think and say” movement.

This is the formula for many government pensions.

Your age + years of service. If the total is 75, then you get to retire with a full pension. Pretty sweet if you started early.

Socialism is a pyramid scheme. Eventually it collapses. Bottom line Kenneth, there are not enough earners to keep it going.

you got kids? Harper did the right thing. Keeping these programs without major modification is not reasonable or moral. Its why they bring in so many refugees, they misguidedly think its going to keep the big machine going so we can keep these sucking monster programs. That premise is going to fail big time.

Raising the eligible age for OAS to 67 was a colossal mistake by Stephen Harper, as was ending home mail delivery for thousands of people, and it showed how out of touch with ordinary Canadians he had become after years of being a player on the world stage. Canadians will not tolerate a Prime Minister or a government that forgets them or, worse, abuses them, and who takes this country from 1st World status to 3rd World Status. These two policies by Harper did both. I warned the PM by e-mail that Trudeau would be Canada’s next Prime Minister if he did not reverse these policies and get back in touch with the concerns of ordinary Canadians. Of course, Harper never saw those emails. I did get replies from the PMO staff explaining to me the reasons the government was enacting these policies. The condescension was almost unbearable. I replied, warning them again that the Conservative Party would be back in the opposition benches if they didn’t reverse these policies, because Canadians would not tolerate them. Well, I guess they know now that they should have listened to the people in their own base who wanted their mail delivered to their homes and their OAS at 65, and weren’t going to be treated as taken-for-granted votes. I held my nose and voted Conservative because I could see the catastrophe that Trudeau would be for Canada as PM, but I’ll bet thousands of swing voters moved to the Liberals, and thousands of disaffected Conservative base voters stayed home on election day. Lesson learned by the Party? I hope so…

Henry there hasn’t been any restrictions on abortion in Canada for years. If you can find a doctor to do it, you can legally have an abortion 1 minute before its born. On MSM news the other day they said because the Supreme Court only gave them til June I think to getter done they did the bare minimum for now but allowing depressed and kids and demented plus who knows who else is coming later.

A few months ago, I read about a case of a young Belgian woman who was demanding to be allowed to have an assisted suicide in her native Belgium. (Belgium has had assisted suicide for several years as I understand it). There was absolutely nothing physically wrong with her: she was as healthy as the proverbial horse. But she was sad and had been for some time. She’d seen psychiatrists but they hadn’t helped. She was tired of feeling sad so she wanted the government to kill her. The courts ruled in her favour. (I’m not sure if they’ve killed her yet or whether the decision is being appealed.)

The proposed legislation here in Canada appears to prohibit anything like that here. FOR NOW. But think back to when abortion was legalized after Morgenthaler’s efforts. Originally, abortion was only going to be used in the very rare cases where the life of the mother was threatened. In the space of just a few years, that requirement was loosened and then loosened again several times. First, the powers that be decided the woman didn’t need to be at grave risk of dying; it was enough if she was just to suffer grave physical consequences. Then, they decided that ANY serious consequences were sufficient to permit abortion. A major scar or loss of income or depression resulting from childbirth was enough to justify abortion. I’m truly not sure if they even go through the motions of asking women why they want an abortion any more, let alone deciding whether the harm is sufficient to justify the procedure. When did you last hear of a woman who had requested an abortion who was turned away?

I confidently predict that the assisted-suicide legislation now being proposed will go the same way. A few years after being enacted, it will have been so watered down that anyone will be able to get an assisted suicide simply because they’re feeling bummed about who made it to the playoffs that year. A few years after that. no one will even ask and we will have assisted-suicide-on-demand just like we have abortion-on-demand today.

1.6 is not a sustainable birthrate, the Canadian Race is dying out. You need a birthrate of at least 2.3, 2.6 would be better, for a race to sustain itself.

However, as Trudeau shovels in more and more of his Muslim friends, he will need somewhere for them to live. This is why he is introducing Euthanasia.

I see two important days in Canadian lives, Birthday and Deathday. This will be the pre ordained life span. Deathday will fall on your 76th year. STOP. END.

This may sound far fetched but if you are middle aged or younger, start the count down. Real Canadians have become surplus to requirements.

Of course this is all hypothetical, when you consider our birthrate figures. We are dying out anyway.

We had an economist as PM and he had it right, that O.A.S. was not sustainable, due to low birth rate, and the boomers aging. It would have affected me directly. And of course the simpleton, who hasn’t a clue how to even balance a cheque book, can’t wait to reverse everything good that PM Harper did. What a contrast in characters and intelligence. We are doomed under Junior and his gang of thieves and liars. Future generations are going to hate him for what he’s doing to their futures. We’re still paying off his old man’s debt that he racked up, and then he walked off into the snow!
