Is Calgary secretly racist? PLUS Alberta's Bill 6 and carbon tax

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Anti-Muslim graffiti that's appeared in Calgary has many concerned.

Police, politicians and the media are taking it very seriously.

But it's important to put this "hate crime" in perspective.

I can't help but notice that Calgary authorities seem pretty selective about which kind of "racism" they take seriously. Remember how they ignored that Muslim mob that attacked a Jewish family?

I also look at a couple of recent "hate crimes" that turned out to be hoaxes.

Does this graffiti fall into that category? I'll try to figure that out.

My first guest is Alison Clapton, who owns an educational equestrian centre in Alberta. She talks about how the NDP's farm-unionization law, Bill 6, will hurt her business and her family's way of life.

Then I'm joined by Glen Schmidt, the CEO of Laricina Energy, to talk about reports that Alberta's carbon tax is the result of secret negotiations between oil industry tycoons and environmental lobbyists, to fashion this law in their own favour.


Rachel Notley's Alberta NDP just announced a $3 billion a year carbon tax.

Nenshi will play any card he can, nothing is off limits. He may play the minority (if he wants to pretend) card, the gay card, or the muslim card. He can say that anyone who doesn’t like him is racist, and odds are that he doesn’t like or listen to anyone who disagrees with him, like most Liberals.

Nenshi IS a racist. He does discriminate, for whatever reasons (most likely political, because its a game of Public Relations).

I haven’t heard anything further on Bill 6. I really hope that horse shit is over with.
Leave farms alone.

When did Newspapers and News TV stop being about news and became all about political news, where only the stories which might support the stations political beliefs become more important than the news itself? You don’t hear about many different things, even when it IS newsworthy and in your own city. Its censorship. I don’t even bother with newspapers or TV, except for the Ezra Levant show that used to run with the Sun media. You don’t hear about crimes if they don’t support the politics of some people. It doesn’t change the fact that the crimes DID happen. They are trying to silence the victims. That, also, should be a crime when things like that are buried or not reported.

Calgary does have a bug-eyed racist mayor, who thinks that he speaks for Calgary. He doesn’t! But his inflated ego keeps his head up in the clouds of fairy tales that he is constantly spinning.

I certainly hope so!

In truth it cannot be racism though – it is in reality a good dose of realism.

Evil = islam.

One and the same.

Time folks started to notice.

And I think they are – not only in Calgary but across the country.

i feel like i’ve found my new home. i was thinking for the longest time that i was the only one that bailed on the mainstream media.

I strongly believe that Bill 6 is to put Alberta family farms under full corporate control, eventually leading to all farms owned by outside corporate interests, then leading to nothing but Monsanto GMO throughout our beautiful and fertile lands. All Albertan’s need to recognize this and stand by our farming community and support our farmers/ranchers otherwise will will loose control of our natural foods.

God bless you bill elder it was a compliment and a call to others what i said. I sadly was not as active as i should have been earlier and i know there others. I want you to know that i see that you are showing myself and others what we are fighting for. Pick up the torch my brothers and spread thw word any way you can. Some of you are capable with social media, use it please be leaders be patriots. Some of us have businesses educate your staff talk to your customers build this revolt everyday. I don’t know if harassing your ndp mla will help so far all my attempts at a dialogue have been ignored. I believe this is the last home of capitilism and freedom in canada, we must to save it. Perhaps if we fight and win we will ignite something bigger and save our country

Would there be this big outcry if this was against christians or jews….I doubt it.

Mayor Nenshi is Calgary’s answer to Obama and Trudeau. They are smooth talking fools.

“Ours is not to reason why,
Ours is but to do or die!” by Alfred Lord Tennyson
This sums up the pervasive feeling of helplessness that is creeping across our country! We wring our hands in despair at what we see happening in our great nation because our ability to do anything about it has been eroded by our “pseudo-majority” governments. Canadians are now an oppressed people, and it is the policies of majority governments that are oppressing us!

scott allen commented “revolts need leaders more than 1 or 2. It was not 5 guys who threw tea in Boston harbour. I only hope that you are this vocal in your community we all need to be”

Well yes I am Scott – I was a lone voice that challenges the agenda 21 policies from the local A21 rimg leaders on council – but you know what, you can’t lead a revo;lution which doesn’t show up to speak truth to power and flood the plebiscites with no votes. People are unaware or apathetic or aligned with the kleptocracy because of their dependence/profiting on it the media is a paid whore which supports the power structure and its agendas. You can run a successful soft rebellion without leaders but you need a unity of purpose from those who want change first.

The only way to run a non violent revolt against a leviathan state intent on consuming your life’s efforts and enslaving you to pay its debt, is to simply refuse to help it do so. Ghandi, Walesa and Yeltsin showed us how this is accomplished. But first we have to awaken the sleeping giant – people need to know the 2 greatest threats to their freedom and way of life are politically correct legislating (happy-face fascism) and Agenda 21 legislating ( global socialist feudalism). The alarm signal must get past the MSM firewall – people need to understand and recognise tyranny in this era -it is coming from within our governing and legal institutions.

With the people awake the resistance can proceed but the forces aligned against freedom know that they will triumph if they can control the narratives an suppress the truth -this is an info war to win before the correction can happen. Rebel is leading the charge and we should take our cue from these freedom fighters – getting the truth out is half the battle. We can start by every one reading this to download a free copy of UN Agenda 21 and read the manifesto of the new klepto-socialist global order.

The racists are our government. They are ones responsible for dividing groups, due to colour, or some other selection. We have allowed them to operate a set of rules for every group of victims imaginable, and a set for the majority, which doesn’t allow for the same rights, or interpretation of our laws, due to activist lawyers and judges in our legal system. This is the reason for so many of these faux racist comments, from those who don’t want to be questioned. It’s a public way of shaming others into submission, and all brought to us by our government, and those who are in their pockets.

Racism exists and that is a reality that continues. The most disturbing part of the new definition of Racism it is in now based on political correctness. In the past people from either the Right or the Left did seem to have a common ground on many issues. Now each side seems to be unable to find a common position , other than simply screaming at each other.

It was not that long ago when the rest of Canada thought Alberta was a great place to move to.

Nevermind, Ezra—I might be secretly racist! Though I’m white after all—so perhaps not secretly: simply born and bred. Apologies for being a proud Canadian.

Thank you for the Rebel, Ezra and Co.; it’s not just the perspective that you provide thats refreshing, but it’s providing a forum for those of like-mind (and dissenting views), where being right-leaning is a point of pride and not another day of dreading inevitable confrontation that proves Godwin’s Law.

If I may leave you with this (and now I digress), a quote by Theodore Roosevelt, but if those who take the time to read this might substitute “American” with “Canadian”, for this is what I believe:

“We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.

But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people."

Bill revolts need leaders more than 1 or 2. It was not 5 guys who threw tea in Boston harbour. You are smart and eloquent I see that I only hope that you are this vocal in your community we all need to be

For years I’ve suspected the Lefty’s of perpetrating crimes to blame on the Right. It is SO like them. They’re manipulators. It’s all they have – psychology and manipulation. Don’t know how you came up with those stories from the US Ezra – but great job!!
Our Charter allows for workers to unionize. If they get enough workers to sign on, they’re in. Any new employees down the road are forced to join. But how does a government force ppl to join a union they didn’t ask for or vote on?
Am I missing something here?
Conservative politicians need to take note and learn from the enemies. See how bold the Left is? They just do whatever they feel like? Imagine if he sold or shut down the CBC and so many other things he could’ve done.

disappointed with the terrible video quality tonight. Its been great until tonight. Please consider only charging 5 dollars a month for the future Ezra Levant show when it goes members only. We are already paying 8 dollars a month for everything else we want to watch.
You will make more at 5 a month than 8 to 10 a month. I understand the thinking is that if its under 10 bucks they will buy monthly. Your not Netflix. I will subscribe at 5 dollars. I will not at 8 to 10 because as I’m already paying that for Netflix and everything else and it all ands up. I love watching the Ezra Levant show. Please make it easier and more available for everyone to watch at a reasonable price.

The majority of the sheep follows the herd, no matter what happens, and don’t think it is a problem until they fall off the cliff.

The Bolshevik communists in Russia hated family farmers because they resisted being socialized or communized. So the communists persecuted them to the point of extermination by the millions under Stalin. Now we have the Alberta NDP under Rachel Notley heading down the same road. Alberta family farmers must resist this latest socialist atrocity. Bill 6, which is aimed at eradicating family farms, must not be allowed to become law. Notley out! NDP out!

Kelvin Grabowsky commented – “Bill Elder, me thinks the trap is already sprung……or is there more of this crap coming down the pipe.”

Ohhh you betcher life there is fellow debt slave. This NDP electoral mistake has been used as a tactical legislative assault on the last truly economically and culturally independent province in Canada – the one the globalists feel is filled with too many “wild self-supporting people” who must be brought into tow with the new socialist feudalism or interred in the globalists urban ghettoization dependency scheme. In 4 yrs. time Alberta will resemble Ontario – a once great wealth engine brought to ruin and welfare dependence by a globalist government whose electorate is too financially crushed and dependent to stop their political overlords from mortgaging their and their grandchildren’s productivity to foreign financiers of global debtor feudalism. The changes will come fast and furious and people won’t have time to fight them all.

I make this prediction because the Albertans I knew would be in full scale revolt running these rats out of their province – but that isn’t happening so I guess the collapse of Alberta independence will proceed unhindered.

Bill Elder, me thinks the trap is already sprung……or is there more of this crap coming down the pipe. We have been relatively quiet so far . Are they ready for a full scale revolt ?

If the government ( LIBERALS ) would listen to how Canadians feel about the refugees situation, then none of this would go on!! We have stated how we feel about these Syrians coming to Canada. But nobody is LISTENING. PM Harper would NEVER put Canada through this. Only the Liberal party directed by JT & McCallum would. Which government EVER listens to the people who vote them in power? PM Harper would listen. I blame all this graffiti on the Liberals making canadian people fustrated because the Liberals party is not listening to the electorate who voted for them. I predict this is a one term government!

Regarding Notley writing legislation in a back room vacuum, expect to see more of this because they don’t want their kleptocratic treachery leaked until they spring the trap on Albertans.

I think the fact there were fundamental language errors in these slurs, tells you just about all you need to know about the perpetrators.
