Andrew Lawton: Beware the new threat of cross-border censorship

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, True North fellow Andrew Lawton caught me up on his highlights from the Defend Media Freedom Conference.

There's more on the full show, but this clip explains why a Malaysian official wants to be able to interfere with British media in order to maintain the level of censorship he wants his own country to live by.

Perhaps it’s just me but I find it DEEPLY DISTURBING THAT PEOPLE/CANADIANS HERE IN CANADA ARE WORKING TO FREE OTHER NATIONS FROM COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIPS WHILE TRUDEAU IS BRINGING COMMUNIST/ISLAMIC DICTATORSHIP TO CANADA AND WE CANADIANS BUT NOT ONE PEEP!
Guess the imports all know trudeaus dictatorship DOESN’T APPLY TO THEM BUT RATHER TO WE VILIFIED,HATED WHITE CHRISTIAN CANADIANS ONLY!

Ezra I could not be prouder to be a Rebel subscriber after your rant at the Freedom conference . I too would rather drink the hemlock than swallow the Liberal Koolaid .Please allow me to be the first to contribute to the “Free Ezra” fund as I truly believe you will need it sooner or later . THEY clearly have you and the Rebel staff in their sights but as they say if you remove the head the body will die …lets hope not . Keep up the good fight , you are not alone !

“Extra -territorial powers”. A Malaysian official wants be able to enforce his countries censorship laws around the world?

The Pakistani foreign minister allegedly (?) ordered someone at twitter to pull some strings to delete Ezra’s tweets he didn’t like.

What kind of people did the UK and Canadian government hosts invite to this ‘Media Freedom’ conference? It doesn’t sound as if they hold " an iron clad commitment to free speech" to me.

Why were people who advocate for global censoring powers invited, and in the case of the Malaysian held up as an exemplary example? I hope people start paying attention to what Canada and the UK are courting.
This conference was nothing but smoke and mirrors. As Ezra put it in another vid, a re-branding of censorship. Freeland needs to be raked over the coals for her part, and exposed for her double speak and inverted truths. Canadians who aren’t paying attention are being hoodwinked and its deliberate.
