These Canadian journalists want you punished if you “disrespect” the government

Rebel Staff
 

Yesterday I showed you the media freak-out about a golf tournament in Alberta having a cardboard cut-out of Rachel Notley. The CBC’s story about it was so massive it took three journalists to write it.

There was a big piece about it in the Globe and Mail too, by their marquee columnist, Lawrence Martin. Like the CBC, he links this cardboard cutout to the assassination of British MP Jo Cox.

What’s interesting is the headline — “Culture of Disrespect: what’s the minister’s remedy?”

As in, Lawrence Martin is wondering what Heritage Minister Melanie Joly is going to do about people not thinking the right way, to “put pressure on media owners to find ways to filter out online posts and other bile…”

Wait until I tell you about Ashley Csanady, though. That liberal journalist tattled to Twitter about a satirical account she didn’t like, one that made fun of Ontario’s Liberal “climate change” minister. And she’s done it before…

Journalists no longer believe in free speech.

But we've known that for a long time.

NEXT: My guest is the outspoken Professor Ian Lee of the Sprott School for Business. We talk about the Liberals’ plans to revamp the Canada Pension Plan.

Of course, they’re undoing one of Harper’s key reforms, which was to raise the eligibility age. People are living longer than ever and the current age is simply unsustainable, as Professor Lee explains using peer reviewed research.

THEN: The Notley government tried to prevent The Rebel from seeing a study about the real cost of the Alberta carbon tax.

Paige MacPherson of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation joins me to talk about this coverup, and cuts through the NDP’s lies about the plan.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

Jay Kelly – you considering yourself “WE” is like the CBC considering itself a part of a he Rebel Media!! …or like Nutley (treasonous Skank!!) considering herself the voice of the Conservative silent majority!! …or TruDope considering himself the leader of the Free World. Go take your Zombie meds and continue your insane fantasy!

If nutley is hated by the people, it’s all on her, there is nothing the people of this province could do that would be even close to creating the same degree of hatred people feel about what she brings on herself.

Freedom of speech, from the left’s point of view means the right to use the correct narrative given us, not the expression of one’s thoughts. A return to Nazi ideals, what a surprise.

The Human Rights Commission is the epitome of what a Kangaroo Court is .
commented 2016-06-22 19:16:41 -0400
That’s what “hate speech” laws are for, to silence and punish those who “disrespect” lefties by disagreeing with them.

Human Rights Commissions enforce them, which no mainstream Conservative party is willing to get rid of.

Rather than waste our time with what these no account journalists think or care about where is the news on the Trump assassination attempt, where is the news today on Trump exposing Hillary for the treasonist that she is ? Totally silent on both huge news pieces.

- Justin Trudeau is an entitled, privileged little socialist that has most likely never developed a callus on his hands from even 1 day of hard work.
- Elmer Fudd, no different
- Tom Mulcair is a commie spy.
- Rachel Notley is an unmitigated idiot and a disaster for the Alberta economy.
So Ashley Csanady, Lawrence Martin, going to have me punished?

As far as I understand, the union bosses of the public “service” sector (how much of that “service”
do we actually receive?) are salivating in favour about this revamping of CPP because it further feathers their nest of already excessive monetary pension privileges (early retirement, etc.). This prospective change has nothing to do with assisting in the retirement of the ordinary employed Canadian. It is simply a move driven by the overly-powerful unions which no doubt control our present government, unfortunately.

Anyone who wants to check it out can do so. These public “service” pension funds are in the hole because of the inordinate largesse handed out to public employees and now they require a substantial input from authentic, hard-working contributors to CPP to keep up with their “freebies”. This move is all a scandalous scam.
commented 2016-06-22 16:22:07 -0400
Funny eh? The more newspapers closures and staffing cutbacks, the more you see journalists like Martin running cover for politicians. A cynical guy would say they’re just sucking around for a cushy CBC position, or a job in a premier’s office, or a chance to write for turdo la doo.

But hey….I’m sure it’s just coincidence.
commented 2016-06-22 15:28:51 -0400
Just when I think I am as disappointed as I can get, the main stream media opens it’s collective pie hole again. Disrespect isn’t a legislate-able issue grow up and report some real news.

Jay Kelly Judging from your post, you are bitter about oil workers making good money, I take it you have zero skills oil companies need, did they turn you down is that the reason you are bitter, Or is it jealousy because you took liberal arts or something and cannot get above min wage.

Re: forces respect for our ruling elites: Our media or 4th estate (traditinally describes the journalists’ role in representing the interests of “the people” in relation to those of business insiders and political elites who claim to be doing things in our names) has become a 5th column (group or faction of subversive agents who attempt to undermine a nation’s electorate solidarity by the means at their disposal) actively disinforming and castigating the public in the interests of political insider cabals which profit from our ignorance.

We might expect venal politicians for putting their and their crony’s interests before the “public” interest. But when the news media makes the same mistake, it is time to be worried.

These “journalists” are merely showing themselves to be the propaganda spewing socialist shills that they really are, because it’s 1984.

I wasn’t thrilled with waiting longer to get the CPP but even less thrilled with the Liberals playing these games with it. I would rather they stopped screwing us over so we had more to put into RRSP’s & other financial vehicles.

Everthing about the carbon tax is a lie – the “science” behind it, the impact it’ll have on the environment, the impact on the people. It’s a tax grab & the NDP have shown that they could care less about the impact it has on the people (much like the Liberals elsewhere.)
commented 2016-06-22 10:00:05 -0400
They’ve been conned into feeding the lying liberals and their minions, at the expense of their own livelihoods, and future. I fully believe that liars and deceivers will reap what they’ve sown, and will pay for eternity!
commented 2016-06-22 02:35:07 -0400
The cultural Marxist MSM are the most destructive force in Canada, pushing this country into liberal fascism because they have been conned into believing they are saving the world if they do this sick thing, and they love feeling morally superior even as they betray the formerly freest and most prosperous nation on Earth.

Ezra this was one of your best shows ever , I have only one criticism and I hope you and all readers of this post take this seriously. Part of the process of deception is comandeering words and changing their meaning. You have, I am sure inadvertantly, fallen for a deception over a very important word…“meek”.

The word has been gradually changed from it’s original meaning and that is the work of the devil if there is such an entity.

We now think the word means a “cuck” who would cave in like kelp in the wake of anyone else’s assertions. Sort of like George McFly in “Back to the Future”….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95_DB6GgLQs

But the Bible and the Torah says “Now in all the earth there was none more meek than Moses”…Numbers 12:3

Was Moses like George McFly? Hardly.

Just as the owl is the totem of wisdom and the fox is the totem of craftyness and the “shit house rat” is the totem of low cunning…in Tibetan iconography the totem of meekness is the tiger.

The tiger is not arrogant because the tiger has nothing to fear….just it’s very presence commands respect.

Mahatma Ghandi was so meek that even the judge would rise to honour him when he was brought into the court room a prisoner.

Meekness is not the antithesis of “toxic masculinity” …it is confidence that is free of arrogance.

The meek shall inherit the earth in spite of the efforts of those who deceive us by perverting the meaning of words.

Try and punish me you losers. So tired of commies and their enablers.

Canada is not only back we’ve finally arrived! We are playing with the big boys now! We have a sycophantic media proclaiming the divinity of the Great Lefty Leaders.

All the more reason to break up Canada and carve the piece that is rightly yours.

Start new governments, adopt a new constitution, create a new society. No one will stop you. Do you really think JT can resist a secessionist movement? Canada has no military and lazy police. It’s in the bag, provided no one can take anymore.

Mike Krchnak calls them “wing nuts” for putting the image of Premier Rachel Notley on the golf course to drive their balls at. Do they really need to be called out for that? Why not just say that they were naïve and overpaid oil executives having a bit of fun. They were probably also enjoying a drink at the time.
commented 2016-06-21 23:39:59 -0400
Lawrence Martin speaks of ridding our landscape of “junk science”. Like man-made global warming Lawrence?
commented 2016-06-21 23:21:26 -0400
Oh vajay jay…..are you that intellectually challenged that you could not get it.
It was the media party and its sheep that were using her assassination in the same context with the effigy on the golf course. Those wing nuts have to be rightfully called out for that. Please do try to keep up.

Respect is earned, not given!

Can we charge the NDP with contempt of Albertans?

Lawrence Martin speaks of “the onset…of the age of unreason” with him this moonbat leading the pack.

And the Liberals are the embodiment of respect with no greater example than Justin Trudeau himself when he manhandled and elbowed and swore at his opposition members when they delayed his highness’s proceedings. Or how about all the ritual Harper trashing we all were treated to for the last number of years. All of us who watch The Rebel need to find ways to increase the audience or we may wake up one day and find the internet has no place who don’t view “hate” through the same rose colored political lenses they do.
commented 2016-06-21 22:21:23 -0400
Ouch! Ezra Levant mentions the assassination of British MP Jo Cox.

Did he really want to do that? It is extraordinarily hurtful to most of The Rebel readers that a young, democratically elected member of the British Parliament was shot down because of her liberal views.

On The Rebel we are supposed to portray a rather conservative but tolerant view, and discreetly ignore the main stories of the day.

What if readers of The Rebel google this event? It undercuts the democratic purpose of The Rebel.

They could just legislate respect

Well EZRA , after all that’s why we call them the media party , now I know you know this , in fact that term I can’t remember hearing say 15 years ago , but gotten so bad that all the main media are in on it
It’s that old refrain—— k to 12 Marxist indoctrination

We treat them with disrespect because they deserve it! A bunch of self-serving, narcissistic idiots…they are not worthy of our respect. Had a good laugh at TruDOPE with PET’s buckskin jacket on the other day……ALL ABOUT HIM…..‘look at me’…‘look at me’…‘look at me’. He looks just about as ridiculous and stupid in that jacket as his father once did. What next…..birling around behind the queen like a big fair??? They cannot pass laws forcing us to like them, or respect them. Respect goes two ways and they show us NONE.

This is kind of a benevolent or a gilded cage Fascism dont you think that’s taking over this country
