(UPDATE) Tabitha Speer thanks donors: “I am sure my husband Chris has been smiling from Heaven”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Earlier this summer, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau disgraced our country by secretly paying $10.5 million to Omar Khadr, a convicted, confessed war criminal, terrorist and murderer.

What can you do when you have a terrorist walking your streets, and a terrorist-lover running your government?

You can rage about it. Or you can do something positive.

Well, we decided to do something positive:

We set up a crowdfunding website at SpeerKids.com, to raise money for the real victims — the family of the man Khadr murdered. His name is Sgt. Christopher Speer. And his widow is named Tabitha, and his two kids are named Taryn and Tanner.

We raised over $230,000 online, from 3,760 people, almost all of them from Canada.

It was Canadians’ way of saying, don’t judge us by our disgraceful prime minister.

We received the funds last week from the crowdfunding website Indiegogo.

Indiegogo took a few percent as a credit card and processing fee, but other than that, 100 per cent of the proceeds went to the family.

We also raised over $8,000 through cheques.

So I’m proud to announce that the two Speer kids received $109,764.84 Canadian each, deposited directly into accounts that their mom set up.

Transferring those funds, with the love and good wishes of 3,760 people, was one of the proudest moments of my public life.

I’ve spoken several times to Tabitha Speer. She doesn’t give media interviews, and we respect that. But I did ask her to share, even briefly, a message with me to pass on to those 3,760 people, and the many thousands of other Canadians.

Here’s what Tabitha Speer wrote to me today:

On behalf of myself and my children Taryn and Tanner, we would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful people who contributed to this campaign. Once again, we have been overwhelmingly amazed by such generous support provided by so many Canadians! It is truly a great feeling to know that there are caring and compassionate people in this world who have not forgotten the sacrifice my family has suffered. I am sure my husband Chris has been smiling from Heaven as he has witnessed these beautiful acts of kindness. God bless you!

Sincerely,

Tabitha, Taryn and Tanner Speer

I wrote back to her and told her if she or her family ever need anything in the future, we’ve got her back.

So thank you to our donors and supporters.

You’ve done a beautiful thing, and helped restore the moral balance.

Trudope is lower than whale poop! I have been doing damage control with my friends in the U.S. ever since that friggin goof paid off kadr. His whole family has terrorist ties while on social assistance here in Canadastan! Good on you Ezra and the Rebel Staff. Lets get this idiot and his ministers out of office ASAP! Best wishes to the Speer family.

Jay Kelly, your grasp of the Khadr case is deficient. Your post clearly exposes your limited knowledge in this matter.

Tabitha Speer continues with her sympathy for Omar Khadr and those who brought about her suffering. She is a model of caring and understanding. Her husband, Chris Speer, was a paramedic in the United States army when they made their attack. In the fort were many Taliban soldiers who were killed. The Canadian, Omar Khadr, at fifteen years old, did not react well. Whatever happened, he was found under a pile of rubble with three bullets in his back and missing one eye.

That 15 year-old alone was charged with the death of medic Speer. He certainly could not have caused the death of the U.S. soldier but under torture he confessed to everything and anything.

The Rebel started a fundraising campaign for the family of the U.S. medic. For some reason they waited sixteen months to raise these funds. Most commentators supposed that The Rebel was simply a political opportunist — that they had no real concern for Speer or Khadr.

We can prove these bigots wrong! Show your care by acknowledging the wrong that has been done. The United States medic Christopher Speer went to Afganistan to make the world a better place. He gave his life for it. Should we not show him some respect?

And what about the guy who lost his eye? Did he get anything?

It’s just our way of apologizing for our government

Good on us REBELS and other Canadians

199 attacks resulting in 979 murders in the last month of August , and most of these Islamic groups hold our celebrity terrorist in high regard

So WHY hasn’t Trudeau been arrested and charged with TREASON, along with his Muslim caucus members with Brotherhood/Sisterhood ties? If it were you/me or Louis Riel we would be hanging from the nearest flag pole, so don’t tell me that Trudeau is untouchable, Ottawa has done it before or is that just set aside for special occasions? WTF?

Ezra, thanks for the update. The Speer family are remembered and loved by Canadians.

I hope the police never uncover the name of the whistle blower; this person did the right thing!

“Christians are the worst part of Canadian Society”, Justin Trudeau, Debate Post, March 28, 2017

Well done, Ezra and all contributors.

Ron Christensen, The trouble is, if Trudeau was assassinated, MSM, the Federal and Provincial Governments from all parties, Law enforcement, the courts, all college professors and students, plus foreign governments and the UN, would turn him into a martyr for the cause of globalism, thus we’d probably end up in a worse position than we are now. The only thing more dangerous than radical leftism and Islamic hegemony, is radical leftism and Islamic hegemony motivated by the martyrdom of one of their own. But I can certainly identify with your sentiment.

Sorry for the accidental glitch.

Thank you Ezra and all the contributors for helping restore a little bit of the Canadian Pride and International respect that we used to have.

Good stuff Rebel!

Rewarding a convicted terrorist while shafting the family of a fallen ally was Junior’s lowest moment. Mind you there is still time for him to sink even deeper.

Evil will not win. TruDope is truly an evil bastard. Great response to it, Ezra and fellow Canadian donors.
