Fighting the ban on Rebel reporters: I just took our 10K signature petition to the UN

Rebel Staff
 

The UN is still banning our journalists from going to Marrakech, Morocco, to cover their big UN global warming conference. We’re still going anyway, even if we have to report from the outside of their barbed wire fences.

In the past week, we’ve collected more than 10,600 names on a petition to the UN, demanding that they end the blacklist of our reporters.

So I went to New York yesterday, and took the petition with me.

I gave it to Canada’s permanent mission to the UN.

This issue has been very much in the news:

To my pleasant surprise, Catherine McKenna, the environment minister, told the Financial Post that she would intervene on our behalf.

We’ll see. As of now, we’re still officially banned.

But I think we’re going to win this one.

In a way, we already have. WATCH and I’ll tell you why…

PS: We’re going to make the UN a major reporting beat from now on.

Baby Doc will probably not push hard for this. He doesn’t want to upset his hopefully new found friends and risk not getting a seat at the UN Security Council.

Trolls:

From Wikipedia: Psychological characteristics of trolls
“Researcher Ben Radford wrote about the phenomenon of clowns in history and modern day in his book Bad Clowns and found that bad clowns have evolved into Internet trolls. They do not dress up as traditional clowns, but for their own amusement, they tease and exploit “human foibles” in order to speak the “truth” and gain a reaction. Like clowns in make-up, Internet trolls hide behind “anonymous accounts and fake usernames.” In their eyes they are the trickster and are performing for a nameless audience via the Internet."

Its an illness. Ignore them and maybe they will get bored and go find another site to bother. Replying to their stupidity simply eggs them on.

The United Nations is a joke. The rebel is giving the UN way too much time. I would rather see the rebel spend more time covering provinces and territories that do not have a rebel reporter living there.

The Conservatives will also never propose leaving the UN as they want to use it to attack Arabs and Russians and the North Koreans and the Chinese.

I thought the people on here claim to be nationalist yet they don’t even want to claim to want to reform the UN. They just seem to want no UN but they want basically with no checks and balances an unfettered NATO because that is what would occur without a Security Council where nations can veto.

That is in essence what many are calling for and it would quickly erupt into world war 3 because it will mean nations vying for position and then it would get completely out of control too quickly.

What does a dick have to do with anything warmongering asshole Drew Wakariuk. You cannot even recognize your hypocrisy when you hate Muslims but protect Jews. That means you want more wars to attack and kill Muslims and yet you call them dangerous. I think Western nations need to stop their extreme foreign policy which has failed since 9/11 and quite frankly since WW2.

Real journalism means going to school and reporting the facts and objectivity and not catering to op-eds like Rebel. They won’t even sign up to go to war and yet you won’t even comment about the fact that they are chicken hawkish yet people that hate environmentalists say they shouldn’t drive or ride on planes since they want an alternative economy. Being pro-war is worse and shows that you people that want war are anti-human and therefore fake Christians.

OMG! The UN censors their own consultants and think tanks! It’s the Mafia! Just let it sink in the ocean like a pirate ship with nothing to offer humanity!

1920 X 1080 X 4 / 7 = 1.1 mill plus.
