Antifa assaults Rebel reporter at United We Roll convoy rally in Ottawa

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

United We Roll Convoy rolled into Ottawa and made their way to Parliament Hill this morning. When then did, Antifa showed up to counter-protest this patriotic, pro-pipeline gathering.

Naturally, I went over to ask them what their message was, and why they came to protest.

I was there for less than two minutes before they assaulted me, punched my hand sending my phone and equipment flying to the ground.

I have spoken with law enforcement and will be filing a police report shortly.

You can keep up with the convoy in real time with me by following my Twitter @3conomic, and keep your eyes peeled for daily video updates at RebelConvoy.com.

My brother and I just got back from Ottawa. There was a small collection of rabble there alright who tried to block us on the sidewalk but the cops moved them out of the way to get us through.

The really disappointing thing was the small number of people on the Hill. I guess things are going to have to get a lot colder and hungrier in Canada before people will show they give a shit.

Max showed up and talked…no sign of Schteer. Quelle surprise. There was a really good speech from a black fellow who worked in the oil-patch and had travelled to Ottawa with the convoy. He was wearing a yellow vest, which mocks the prevailing media narrative: yellow vest = racist. So you won’t see him on the news tonight. However, he talked about entering Canada as a legal immigrant 18 years ago, and how he worked so hard to become a Canadian….and how sad he is to see his new Country disintegrating.

Like the cowards they are expect attacks like this to be orchestrated by more than one individual.
The perp will meld into their folds and another coward waiting with pepper spray for any security staff perusing.
Sucker punching is the masked cowards way.

Ron Shea , You are like the scout they send out into hostile territory in the old westerns. Great report on how our enemy CBC is reporting the movements of our modern day wagon train.

The CBC is still trying to paint the rally as angry Albertans with a yellow vest white nationalist and ’anti immigration element.
The msm are all trying to program unsuspecting Canadians into believing that false premise, through relentless repetition. There is nothing unreasonable or even unfriendly about pointing out the flaws in Justin’s immigration plan and selling us out to the UN. Most Canadians think that is a reasonable way to feel. We have nothing to be ashamed of.

Bernier is the only one who can cut the cbc down to size.

When are Rebel reporters going to learn to have some muscle alongside when interviewing these losers? They and others have been sucker punched often enough that it should be s SOP.

Once again Antifa proves who the real extremists are.

RON SHEA commented. “I have to vote PPC because I despise the leftist CBC. The Conservatives under Scheer are no longer Conservative and will not shut down the CBC, and Max Bernier is the only one saying he will defund it.”

Bernier has said that he will defund the CBC, while Scheer told the CBC elect me to avoid having your funding cut.

Damn antifa thugs.

A few times in Calgary’s Municipal Plaza, I have been close enough to these losers to see the whites of their eyes. Usually that’s all you can see, their disguise covers everything else. It’s impossible to observe them for more than a couple of minutes without concluding that there’s some mental illness involved. Or drugs. Or both.
If you want to see them go completely haywire, wear a red ball cap. No MAGA logo required, any red cap will do. The response is Pavlovian.

Wouldn’t it be nice if just once the cops stepped out of the way and let the common sense Canadians kick the living shit out of these antifa rats. To that antifa rat-you pathetic coward,you hit someone and then turn tail and run,your gender bending mommy would be so proud!!!

Sorry for you but it goes to show how they are. Keep reporting thanks.

I unfortunately watched CBC for a brief period today regarding “United We Roll”. They interviewed an aboriginal woman first who was of the far left, extreme environmentalist type, who was against any and all pipelines moving through Indian native land, and she was standing on the Antifa side of the protest. She claimed there are other methods of energy than oil but did not elaborate but I figured she was eluding to wind and solar. Then they interviewed a trucker who was quite verbose and a passionate Canadian patriot, talking about lack of jobs, families hurting from having no money, too much government bureaucracy, Trudeau’s ineptness, why oil is necessary for our modern world and why it is necessary to develop the Canadian energy sector. According to their website, the CBC designated all the truckers as “Angry Albertans and Westerners”, and “extremists with anti-immigration elements.” The CBC makes the aboriginals out to be forward thinking saviors and the truckers to be dumb backward hicks when the opposite is true.

I have to vote PPC because I despise the leftist CBC. The Conservatives under Scheer are no longer Conservative and will not shut down the CBC, and Max Bernier is the only one saying he will defund it. I refuse to have my tax dollars support an anti-Canadian, anti-Christian organization, that is social engineering the population towards deeper cultural Marxism and post-modernism, to the detriment of Canadian society.

Keean took one for the Rebel. Looks like you need to hire a Body Guard Keean, you are dealing with Marxist low life who’s favorite verbal defence is a Bunch of Fives.

Did the low-rent coward get away?
Assaulting a reporter should be dealt with severely. Too bad Justin’s MSM won’t say anything to defend the safety of those reporters who, unlike themselves, don’t happen to be puppets of Dear Leader.
