UPDATE: Canadian Journalists for Free Expression fundraises for vandalized comedy club — after CJFE staffer led the mob

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday, I told you about a weird case in Toronto, where a left-wing comedian wanted to do a free speech comedy night making fun of what he called “fascists.”

It was a bit confusing. So confusing that another group of leftists shut down the leftist comedy night. They actually jammed the door locks, making it impossible to get in.

I didn’t mention that a group called Canadian Journalists for Free Expression then had a fundraiser, to pay for the damaged door handle.

The fundraiser was set up by Kevin Metcalf, the CJFE communications coordinator. Seemed like a strange thing to pay for. 

But I didn’t see this until today — The left-wing comedian left this comment about Metcalf:

"He incites people 2 get a free speech comedy show cancelled and is now trying to say I'm the one at fault? Free speech is so controversial?”

In other words, this comedy event was censored by the communications coordinator at — Canadian Journalists for Free Expression!

And now he’s fixing the door — after whipping up the mob who broke it?

As long as Kevin Metcalf works for CJFE, their very name is false advertising.

@Ayan Ray……In the news today controversial playwrite William Shakespeare said that a rose by any other name would smell.

It is just too easy to play gottcha with words taken out of context. In light of the absolutely thuggish treatment Kevin Johnson and his supporters have received from the school board concerning that topic that must not be mentioned I can picture him getting angry enough to say that. I notice the word “Muslims” is in parenthesis….what was the word Kevin actually said?

Don’t bother calling me for jury duty over bullshit like this.

So who is this Kevin Johnston and what does he have to do with the Rebel?
Why does this Ayan keep pasting the same comment in all the comment sections here? Maybe he should post his comment on this Kevin’s site or email the guy. It clearly doesn’t belong here. How annoying.

Free speech or promotion of violence and hatred through lies and rhetoric?

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.

This is all just getting insane.

I suppose the MSM will call this protest, of course sabotage and preventing others from freely going about their lives is something very different.

So this idiot realizes he got the useful brownshirt idiots to mistakenly attack some of his own. What a friggin genius. As we all know fanaticism tends to make people act without thinking. The left proves this quite often.

Jay Kelly you know they probably make some meds for whatever your mental health issue is.

Rebelation Rebelation says: “I think you should keep an eye on this guy Ezra. I have a hunch he may be behind a lot of the riots.” Ezra has enough to do running the Rebel, do you really think he has time to organize riots?

I’m really getting sick of this very dangerous political trend to violence and mobbing of free expression. The ultimate insidious irony is the scum doing this disguise their fascist brown shirt thuggery by virtue posing as anti fascists. It isn’t a political or moral cause its crime posing as virtue – it’s injustice posing as justice – it’s evil and is open political terrorism – if the authorities do not get a handle on this more violence will escalate.

Typical of the Left to call themselves the opposite of what they are. I call it, “tell the opposite of the truth to lead them in the wrong direction” tactic.

I think you should keep an eye on this guy Ezra. I have a hunch he may be behind a lot of the riots. He may be ground zero, and the CJFE is just a cover.

Kevin Metcalf is an ANTIFA “bird dog” provocateur. There is lots about him on YOUTUBE and yes, he is on a police watch list at demonstrations.

I should add, a rally attendee from out West followed him closely herded him toward the periphery,told him to go away, then police told him to leave the area.

Kevin Metcalf was skulking around Parliament Hill on June 3/17 taking pictures of attendees attending a peaceful rally. He was recognized and the police escorted him away. I witnessed this.

The regressive left play-book. Take over well meaning groups and subvert them.
Buyer beware, you will find many of your “charities” are no longer charitable. Investigate.

As Dr Jordan Peterson says, the Left has a high degree of toleration for chaos.

I think we see that playing out here..
