Most Canadians SUPPORT screening immigrants, but Media Party says that’s racist

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

[NOTE: This episode was recorded on September 2.]

Kellie Leitch is running for the leadership of the Conservative Party. She did a survey on her website asking people what they thought of screening would-be immigrants to weed out extremists:

“Should the Canadian government screen potential immigrants for anti-Canadian values as part of its normal screening for refugees and landed immigrants?”

Immediately all the right people were apoplectic. How dare you? That’s racist!

The last time the media focused on Leitch was when she announced, in the 2015 election, the conservative party’s “barbaric cultural practices" tip line, to call for help in case an honour killing was imminent, or a child marriage, or female genital mutilation.

(Such tip lines are commonplace in the UK now, by the way...)

The media loves barbaric cultural practices -- or at least hates calling them out. Justin Trudeau does too.

But funny enough — most Canadians don’t, as you saw from the latest Nanos/Globe & Mail survey.

Let’s see if Leitch’s competitors for the conservative race either try to steal the issue from her, or all team up against her. That’s what happened to Donald Trump when he talked about immigration too. How did that work out?

NEXT: Raheem Kassam of Breitbart London is covering the U.S. election campaign. As an Englishman, what does Kassam make of Trump calling himself “Mr. Brexit”?

Will the American election be a rerun of the populist Brexit result, especially since the public no longer care about insults like “racist” or “Nazi"?

THEN: Chuck Johnson of and WeSearcher talks to me in studio about his revolutionary brand of crowdfunded investigative journalism, like his exposure of the woman behind the “Rolling Stone” campus rape hoax.

As a serial media entrepreneur, he has valuable insights about the future of reporting. You won't want to miss this fascinating conversation!

Ideological extortion, insisting the west bends a knee to sharia-compliancy,  to bow to it’s existential need to submit humanity to their divine interventions…….  Modesty/humility a large part of these types of  virtues is about not attracting undue attention to oneself . Burkinis on a beach or all manner of ideological uniforms in the secular public square is about  islam being  a glaring signpost , one  marking it’s territory, it’s a crass walking billboard a brass neon sign of islamism  …… the century will bring sharia not kumbaya ……  the rigid orthodoxy of islamic veiling is goose-stepping it’s way into western secular public spaces….  drip-by-drip-by-drip-by-Sharia-drip , cleverly using  victimhood to sway the regressive-progressives and gain political clout  while simultaneously vociferously proclaiming their ideological superiority ……….  masters of  passive/aggressive behaviour……. hell knows no fury as a supremacist ideology scorned…… the righteous indignation is palpable…… nothing, absolutely nothing but a submissive obedience can  soothe that savage breast and the pain of  unrequited love ……. This effrontery bulldozing it’s way into our secular public sphere will remain relentless until the holy-jihad to implement sharia-compliancy is accomplished. ….. Institutionalized , systematic, islamic state sponsored & ideologically driven sharia is at our
door steps. A ’Caveat Emptor’ to this creeping sharia, Europe is infested with islamic no-go-zones ruled by nefarious sharia………..

Nnaumbua, what I still can’t get an answer to from the likes of Sean Penson, Gay Kelly, Ron Christensen and all the other Gordon Steele aliases is how someone can possibly be racist towards Islam and Muslims when they are not a race.

I’ll revise my last statement. Not only do leftists balk at doing the right thing, they go*out of their way* to do the wrong thing as evidenced in Europe. And to add icing to the cake, they will harass and persecute anyone who opposes them.

Please commies do explain how weeding out people who believe in honour killing is racist.
commented 2016-09-06 14:04:28 -0400
Lefties crack me up. They talk a good game about women this and equality that, but when the chips are down and it’s time to actually do something they balk. At best, they’re confused and naive. At worse, they are opportunistic Clintonesque sociopaths who use the people they claim to care about for power and personal gain.

Canada has been run by liberals (quebec labor lawyers) and the media party since the 1950s.

Canadians have been force fed liberal policy (rebranded as Canadian values by the media party) to the point that most Canadian’s don’t know any better but to believe the media party and vote for liberal pigs.

And here comes another round of financial raping by the liberal pigs as they make life a bigger hell in Canada by importing more goat fuckers.

60 cents out of every earned dollar goes to liberal pigs and their shit fucking ideas/policies.

Happy now Canada???

Stephen E excellent post and right on.I came over with the Dutch invasion during the 50s. It took 5 years to get citizenship. You needed a sponsor that had certain amount in the bank. No load on the taxpayers. You learned English and integrated into society. You kept your culture. In short you brought your skills and perspectives to the Canadian society. That is what makes us stronger.

Hey Sean old boy, Trump is leading according to the most recent Clinton News Network Poll!
Hillary can hardly get a word in between her coughing fits. Told you about her health.
Trump policies coming to a country near you!
Screening is not racist and it is very Canadian.
The lefties and their media are blowing their tiny little brains out on this one.

ANONOMYS: I hope you enjoy your Air Isis flight off the CN tower along with Jay, Sean, Ron C, and the others, or are you all the same dick wad. I’m sure the new “guests” will have no problem giving you the toss. In the meantime get YOUR head out of YOUR ass, you piece of cow shit. And enjoy paying for the rest of your life for all the “new” contributors to our land. Your self professed urban intellegence superiority seems to be a bit of a falsehood as well, ARE YOU TOO STUPID TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD.?

JAMIE MACMASTER As you point out the problem is not so much the traitorous ‘leaders’ but the apathetic sheeple.

You are a typical Liberal turd copycatting the same old tired crap. You hate and complain that people hate. Yawn, same old boring double standard stuff. Don’t you have an imagination and at least try to come up with your own twisted logic. To me you sound like a CBC invented Jay Kelly copycat without the psychedelic drugs.

I have never heard nor read explained precisely how those who call for screening immigrants for their un-Canadian ideology are racist.

They cry “racist” at the very mention of screening immigrants for incompatible ideology, but never explain exactly how it is racist.

Ezra, partnering with sounds like a good idea.

However, one thing I can see as a possible problem, is the validity of the material being submitted to With technology being as sophisticated as it is manipulation of photos, videos and “original source” material can be a serious problem.

As a supporter, I am not against the idea of partnering with, but suggest caution.
commented 2016-09-06 09:12:52 -0400
The poll on her website suffers from something called “selection bias”. Someone visiting the site is probably interested in her policies, and thus don’t reflect the population as a whole. Dr. Leitch is, after all, the source of the “Barbaric cultural practices” snitch line that played a large part in the CPC’s loss.

That being said, even other CPC leadership candidates are calling her out on this as being nothing more than dog-whistle politics.

The Femagogy in countries like ours is as bad as the Misogyny in other countries. If I was a country I would ban Canadains from entering unless they renounced some of their cultural practices. the way Canadians piss on their men is terrible. the way the women kill babies in the womb is genocidal and the lack of respect for taxpayer funds is off the scale from the way they over pay public employees to get votes and the way they under pay minimum wage workers. Canada hits people right where it hurts. In the family jewels.
I can see why we would want to also protect Canada from some of the practices of other countries, but lets face it. The real issue is terrorism being pushed by Muslim extremists that infects other more moderate muslims and some of our kids. The Misogyny and Femegogy aside Canadians just want to be safe without a hassle.

Anonymous, why do think women deserve to be mutilated, raped, and treated like slaves? Is that normal behaviour to you. Is it that you can easily ignore it ,or you think it’s probably an exaggerated accusation? Why would any civilized country choose to flood their country with barbarians? It is either stupidity or evil intent, which is it with you?
commented 2016-09-06 08:59:01 -0400
Get a life Anonymous, the infamous liar here is you with your many aliases. Do you seriously think you are fooling anyone? People on this site are a lot smarter than those that adhere to the red tent doctrine over on the CBC. But, I give you a B- for effort, for if nothing else you are indeed consistent.

I don’t understand why Ezra Levat lies so much. Probably just to draw the wingnuts out to add to his bank account. He is a disgrace and a real impediment to the conservative movement. Personally I like it. there are bogots in here who have absoulutely NO idea what they are talking about. Canada is a very successful multi-national country. The hatred of some of the ignorant regulars in here is a glaring example that Ezra Levant attracts the lowest filth Canada an offer. That filth need to be swatted like the shit flies that they are.

Ezra, Calling the media such as it is The Media Party is so sophomoric and so out of touch with reality. The media as I have said before not repeat NOT repeat NOT some group of fans watching a football game up in the bleachers making the occasional comment. THEY ARE ACTIVE PLAYERS ON THE FIELD. IN FACT THEY ARE THE STARS. THEY ARE THE LIBERAL PARTY ALL OF THEM .THEY ARE SOCIALIST and never mind this joke of calling them Progressives. What’s that all about ?? Was Lenin a “Progressive”. How about Stalin?? Or more recently Chavez. Does anyone else here know a Venezuelan that is starving living in the nervana that was promised by Cavez and his mentors, the Castro brothers? I DO ! And it ain’t nice to have your friends begging for help to escape paradise.
Trudeau wasn’t assisted or helped by the media. He was MADE by the media. For all intents and purposes , the entire upper echelon of the CBC could move over and occupy the Government Members seats in Parliament. And all the politicians could move over to the CBC and occupy the offices there. There is no dividing line , no seperation . It is a contimuum.
Where is the safest place in Canada. The safest place where you are guaranteed never to be the victim of an Islamic Terrorist? The main office of the CBC, thats where. There isn’t a radical Muslim on the planet that doesn’t know that the CBC and the Toronto Star are on their side. Totally co-opted by Islam.
Calling this group of radical leftists “The Media Party” is tentamount to calling a Panzer division a group of SUVs or ATV’s. Like calling an aircraft carrier a tugboat.
Trudeau? The Liberal Party? They aren’t the enemy .The boots on the ground , the army is the media in toto.They are the enemy we need to defeat and calling them nice little jingly phrases like the media party just doesn’t cut it any more.

We are witnessing quite a point in history – unmatched since the implosion of the Roman Empire or the scourge of the Mongol hordes. Our civilization is being attacked by internal parasites on a multitude of fronts, but we (Western society in general, and the right in particular), have become coddled and pampered to such an extent that posting anonymously on blogs and forums passes as acceptable activism.

The deterioration will continue at an ever-faster rate because there is no will to stop it. Our pathetic political leadership in all parties is just another symptom of the rot, not the cause. Dumb, mute, acceptance is the real problem.

Here is a comment which I lifted from website:

The commentator’s post reflects what many in the west are seeing but are incapable of preventing since western governments are blinded by their own ideologies.

I have to bring to the notice of the readers of this forum one imp thing… Soon my country India will celebrate its national day on the 15th of Aug.. It is very much like ur 4th of July… But the sordid fact to note here is that many Muslims in my country are refusing to sing our national anthem and salute our flag… As usual, they say that the Indian flag is not representative of Allah and it goes against their religious principles. Already 8 teachers quit a Muslim owned school because of this. Why am I mentioning this here because this is also one of the Sharia rules that Muslims bear no allegiance to any land or flag other than Allah. This insidious behavior is also happening in the EU as we speak and expect the same thing in the USA in years to come as the Islamic population explodes. They will show utter contempt to the USA flag and will refuse to celebrate 4th of July.

Your points make so much sense that our government will bend backwards to implement them . . . (I’m being sarcastic here!)

The reason for all the low skilled, uneducated and criminal imports is that in the past some liberal PhD claimed that due to our country’s low birth rate, we would have no people to fill the jobs.
What they failed to realize is that due to their economic as well as other policies, there are no jobs to fill so now we have all these people with no jobs, no skills, no education but with medical needs that this country has to take care of to the detriment of our own citizens.
Everyone claims that our country’s youth will not take a low paying job since it is easier to get welfare and this is one of the reasons that we need all the immigrants.
Solution, any person found to be healthy and living on welfare should be cut off from receiving any financial aid.
It is either work or starve . . . there will be a lot of starving youth out there.
Does any one remember the days when welfare was not readily available?
Everyone worked and the low pay and unskilled jobs were filled by young people who needed to earn enough money to live on.

After WWII you had to be checked before you came to Canada. It did not take three years to become a citizen; it took much longer. When you came to Canada you knew you would become a Canadian; not a Greek-Canadian, Romanian-Canadian, Dutch-Canadian, Russian-Canadian, Belgium-Canadian, British-Canadian but a Canadian. Period.

If you decided to come to Canada, in order to be admitted you were either skilled, had some talent Canada could use, or were someone who wanted to contribute to Canadian society in a positive way and willing to work. If you turned out to be an undesirable, the government would gladly show you the door.

You still had your old culture, but you integrated into mainstream Canadian society and took on Canadian values and traditions. If you couldn’t, you either formed a very insular ghetto and watched Canadian society progress and pass you by, or returned from whence you came.

Today, all you essentially have to do is show up. There may be a schedule of points to be allowed in, but that appears to have been put aside. You do not have to participate nor join mainstream Canadian society. You are free to reject our traditions and insist that only your previous traditions matter and should matter to everyone. Work ethic has been replaced with government financial and housing assistance for years.

Many immigrants have been found to return home after the nominal three years here. Once a citizen, they go home. Medical problems, or if there is trouble at their actual home, they come back to Canada to reap the rewards of citizenship without contributing to Canada. Of course, our government is expected to intercede on their behalf overseas, even if they still hold a passport to the country where they are being held.

Its time that Canada increases the amount of time to become a citizen. Seven to ten years sounds good to me. During that time, any criminal code violation would result in extradition. That would mean any act of violence, robbery, fraud, rape, wearing a disguise in public, participating in a riot and so on. Streamlining of the appeal procedure to no more than six months (including while incarcerated for a crime) would help, along with being escorted straight from prison to the airport if an appeal fails.

Learning our language is also helpful. Citizen courts would be in English or French. Nothing else.

As for rights, there are Canadians and non-Canadians. Until you become a Canadian you must understand that you are our guest. You no longer will get sent to the front of the line for government services. You no longer receive more benefits than would Canadians in a similar situation. If Canada flew you here, you are expected to repay the plane ticket. If there are service fees (such as incurred by the immigration process) you pay the fees. As a guest, if you show yourself to be against our society, our way of life, our government, our freedoms, then it would be suggested that you either adapt or leave.

If you become a citizen, you can not run for a political position at any level, or work for any level of government until you renounce your other citizenship. Government positions and jobs should only be for one citizenship, and that is Canadian.

Terrorism equals automatic cancellation of citizenship and being sent back to your real home once you finish your prison term. You leave with what you are wearing.

When someone wants to come into your house, you first inquire why and decide if you want them in. If invited in and the guest behaves badly after a while, you tell them to leave. Canada is our house, our home. If guests behave badly, they should be made to leave and told, “Don’t come back.”

If the media party says it is racist then it is not racist. They are bigots of the highest order.

You screen people before you invite them in to your house – even media party members do this.

So we must all be racist.

That’s fine with me.

Screen them.

Deport any who break the law after they arrive – and deport their families as well.
