Conservatives support Liberal plan to regulate social media

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on the Conservative Party SUPPORTING Justin Trudeau's plan to regulate social media.

The Liberals want to control the Internet; they want a government censorship agency, and government meddling agency, with that kook Michael Wernick on it; they’re working hand in glove with the Liberal executives at Facebook. And all the Conservatives have to say is — will you go harder and faster, and just do it already?

That’s crazy my friends. That’s danger.

They’re coming for you. They’re coming for me. They’re coming for anyone who makes comments on Facebook they don’t like. They literally want to arrest people and charge them for crimes, for criticizing Trudeau too much.

They think the convoy that went to Ottawa asking for pipelines — they think those people are criminals because some anonymous person on Facebook called Trudeau a traitor or something.

Now, that might be rude. But it’s not a crime to be rude to politicians. The CBC Liberals called Stephen Harper a Nazi — they called him Stasi Steve and Herr Hitler.

That was fine way, way, back three years ago when the target of that hate was Harper.

But today, we have to tone it down, because Trudeau is the prime minister. And we need a government agency telling us what t believe and what not to believe.

And the best the Conservatives have in reply is to compliment the chief censor on how fashionable she looks, and to tell her to censor harder and faster.

The party is only 5 months old. Byelections don’t necessarily determine outcome. They historically have low voter turnout. Plus there is question yet again about results. I know you are pumped to see failure, you thrive on it, ( classic ambulance chaser) but you may be disappointed yet. People are done with the shit show that is Canadian politics with the existing usual parties. The corruption is glaring and people want something else. Come back by all means and say again how there is no way if that gives you an endorphin hit of some kind, but it just makes you look pathetic and its meaningless to everyone but you.

The by-election results say otherwise. They didn’t break 2% in either riding where the candidate didn’t already have wide name recognition, and really only served to split the vote in the one riding where she did.

“I’m fighting back against years and years and years of the cultural and the political left telling people to sit down and shut up, and I’m finally telling a bunch of people, whether it be a conservative or a libertarian on a college campus, whether it be an actor or a director in Hollywood who wants to make movies that represent his world view, I’m sayin’ I’m gonna lead the charge. And you want to follow me? Fine. And there are people who are followin’ me. I want to make things equal. I want people to have a free and open voice.”

John Wick Comedians are being silenced and attacked currently, you need to learn some history.

John Wick will you wake the hell up, tyranny is always a threat, laughing it off does not make it go away. Just because most of it is targeted at people you do not agree with right now does not mean it will not target you in the future once it gets a bigger foothold. This crap is not acceptable from left or right. If you think i am just fear mongering then tell me exactly what will stop them if they get enough power?

After what CPC MP Stephanie Kusie (Calgary Midnapore) who by the way is the Official Opposition Shadow Minister for Democratic Institutions, shockingly said in response to the Liberal government’s plans to control the Internet in advance of the coming federal election, if you have a Conservative MP, press them for clarification as to where the CPC stands on this matter.

90 days of no hammers falling.

What the hell are you talking about Wick? Maybe you didn’t listen to the vid, or you meant that comment for another post?

Satire/comedy is completely different than legitimate comments that the public are making. When is The Rebel going to finally figure this out?

Comedians make fun of politicians – you don’t have to like it or find it funny, but it’s been a staple of comedy and satire forever.

What are Karina Gould credentials anyway? She is a 32 year old anti oil
liberal according to her wiki page. I’m getting more than a little uncomfortable with Justin’s quota hires. She is 32 years old, what qualifies her to have any role in ‘regulating’ what we can and cannot see, hear and say online? I don’t think these young people understand what they are ushering in.

I am no fan of Charlie Angus’s politics, but by gawd he has been asking some hard questions of late. Kusie is a ditz, what is she doing there? Thanks for nothing as per usual CPC. Fighting for us my arse.

FYI, Kusie, any woman knows fool well that you were not complimenting her on her necklace, You thought it was ugly. It was ugly. Women who off the bat, before stating business, make an opening remark to another woman about her appearance, is being passive aggressive. 99% of the time. Its highly inappropriate, especially in a public meeting setting. Paint Kusie disingenuous and unprofessional. Not a good look for a rep of any party.

I guess it was a prescient move on my part to dump the CCP over a year ago.
