Conservatives must campaign on free speech to win

Faith GoldyArchive

Andrew Scheer, the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, put the defense of freedom of speech at the forefront of his campaign. If he wants to beat Justin Trudeau in 2019, he must place freedom of speech at the centerpiece of the Conservative platform. 

With the passage of M-103 and laws mandating the use of made up gender pronouns, the Conservatives must paint Trudeau as the anti-free speech candidate.

WATCH my video to see why freedom of speech is an issue that resonates with Canadians of all backgrounds and political stripes.

liza Rosie,

It must suck to be old and all dried up. You should just enjoy what life you have left and don’t worry so much about thing that you won’t even be around for.

Yes Jimmy I have. Same bullshit different country.
You are too young and cucked to be able to comprehend many things by the look of it Jimmy.

liza Rosie,

Have you heard of the BBC?

What the fuck are you talking about? People who are liberal in varying degrees will tend to vote Liberal..

Someone who identifies as a liberal when asked isn’t going to vote for a Kelly Leach or Andrew Scheer. since they have views that liberals don’t agree with.

A liberal person is liberal when it comes to the political views. They may be fiscally conservative, but they are socially liberal on most issues.

There is no conservative liberal. What you will have though is someone who is a centrist or center left, but compared to you – they are hard core liberal.

Allan Peterson,

Sun News was in 5 MILLION HOMES. No one was watching. The Fireplace Channel had more viewers.

It’s hilarious that Ezra lobbied for mandatory carriage while simultaneously blasting the CBC for being subsidized.

“The CBC is a different business model”
Yeah, parasitic, and reflective of post modernist agenda so obviously and blatantly, it truly is a wonder that sht still floats!!

Wow, this is almost entertaining! Jimmy, so far I’ve seen you’re positions rebutted fairly accurately and successfully by just about everyone. But, there’s one point you keep on bringing up that nobody else has jumped on, as far as I can see. It’s your continued insistence that liberal equals Liberal. It doesn’t, it never has and it never will. Those polls ask if you consider yourself a liberal or conservative, not if you’re a Liberal or a Conservative. There are differences, and big ones, both ways. And like it’s already been pointed out here, you already know that. So, please stop with the poll baiting already, we all here understand that you’re just a Liberal shit disturber anyway. BTW, if so many Canadians are liberal, like you said, how did Harper send not one, but two leaders packing? How did a Conservative leader win all those consecutive elections, in a country that, according to you, supports liberalism by such a huge majority? Oh, and one more thing: do you even get how obvious every word you post on here is a whole lot more about your personal hatred of Ezra and all things Ezra, and virtually none of it has anything to do with actual politics? If Ezra were a left winger you’d be the world’s stupidest conservative.

Jimmy, the CRTC put onerous restrictions on Sun News to ensure it failed. It was a case of making sure that the supply would not meet the demand.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Sorry – I have a life and can’t spend all day here like you do.

It isn’t any one specific thing. Of course the broken promises don’t help, but he seemed to kick more ass and get in people’s faces more prior to him being PM. He was more like his Dad then and now he is so much less like his Dad. I am just uninspired overall with Justin.

It’s not unlike Democrats who felt that Obama didn’t go far enough. He wasn’t liberal enough, even though that’s probably insane to you.

I just don’t see Justin really getting anything done regardless of what it is. Perhaps it will take two terms to really do anything at all realistically, but he needs to do more one way or the other.

Peter Netterville,

The CBC is a different business model – they are the Canadian national broadcaster. Same thing as the BBC. You seem to really have a difficult problem with this different model concept.
commented 2017-06-12 23:21:01 -0400
Peter Netterville,

It’s not false at all. I didn’t mean Fox News literally. People called Sun News – Fox News North. If there was a huge demand for conservative media on Canadian TV, there would be conservative media on Canadian TV.

Canadians were disgusted at the thought of Fox News coming to Canada at one point and they didn’t give a fuck about Sun News eitther. The market decides.
commented 2017-06-12 21:54:58 -0400
Jimmy has left the building! Logic outweighed his rhetoric!
commented 2017-06-12 19:44:28 -0400
Jimmy said, "If enough people demand for Fox News North, the CRTC can’t stop it. "

That is patently false.

The CRTC has full control over who can and who cannot set up a broadcasting business in Canada.

Jimmy Reece claimed, "The media is a business to make money. "

Not the CBC. They are given 1.5 Billion plus.
commented 2017-06-12 19:32:26 -0400
Jimmy Reece we do get Fox news here. And no one demanded Oprah or MSNBC or CNN.
commented 2017-06-12 17:44:10 -0400
Jimmy Reece, Lots of Canadians of every political stripe are embarrassed by Trudeau, when he is here at home at abroad.
When you said, “For me, he is not going far enough and has flip flopped a bunch. I need more action – not just words.”
I find that a bit too vague, what are specifically referring to? Thanks
commented 2017-06-12 17:26:04 -0400
Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

If enough people demand for Fox News North, the CRTC can’t stop it. The demand isn’t there.

No one gave a shit about Sun News, beyond a very small demographic. It was in 5 millions homes and NO ONE has watching.

There is nothing really so “fantastic” about Trudeau’s leadership presently, but that is usually pretty typical of any politician. They are never as great as their campaign promised. Having said that, the world seems to love him more so than their own Presidents and PM’s and if nothing else – Trudeau is good PR. Not to you of course, but to the masses.

For me, he is not going far enough and has flip flopped a bunch. I need more action – not just words.
commented 2017-06-12 16:26:24 -0400
Jimmy Reece, I didn’t ask you whether Liberal Party supporters would vote conservative. I asked you to enlighten me about what is so fantastic about Trudeau’s leadership. If you don’t think anything is fantastic, well, what is bothering you about his performance so far?
Remind me who funds CBC… Isn’t it the CRCT that wields quite a bit of power over broadcasters? Can this powerful organization make it difficult for broadcasters at any given time?
commented 2017-06-12 16:01:18 -0400
Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

The media is a business to make money. If Canada was full of people like you, supply and demand and the desire to make money would dictate that they would be going after conservative eyeballs. It’s basic logic.

Oh I am not saying that Liberals can’t be unhappy with Trudeau. I am not happy with his performance so far, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to vote for some far right conservative. They may have voted for Kevin O’Leary if he went all the way with a fiscal conservative/socially liberal position, but even a disliked Trudeau will still be re-elected over anyone far right.
commented 2017-06-12 15:26:22 -0400
Jimmy Reece, just because they supply it; doesn’t mean it’s in demand. Governments have been turning out propaganda for centuries… it’s nothing new. Some fall for the propaganda; while others demand the truth; I am a truth seeker. No apologies for being one
I have talked to a great number of Liberal Party supporters; who are very angry with Trudeau and did not vote for what he has subjected Canadians to since the election. I give them plenty of time to discuss what’s on their mind and I never say “I told you so”. When they ask me for my opinion; I give them additional examples that were never reported on in msm. I encourage them to look for other sources on-line and compare footage/reports etc… to what they have been exposed to on msm.

Jimmy Reece, please enlighten me about what is so fantastic about Trudeau’s leadership. Refrain from including Canadians have access to him for selfies!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

I am not assuming anything. It’s the reality of Canadians.

If Canada was full to the brim with Conservatives, then the Liberals wouldn’t have been in power so much more than Conservatives and Conservatives wouldn’t be endlessly struggling to get traction in Canada to the point that they even changed their views on gay rights to appeal to more Canadians.

If Canada was full to the brim with Conservatives, there wouldn’t be a need for a conservative news blog on the internet like The Rebel. It would be a smart investment to have MANY conservative news sources on TV. Hell, CTV would be smart to change their news format completely and tell you the things you want to hear.

Do you understand the concept of supply and demand?
commented 2017-06-12 11:29:02 -0400
I’m always amazed how the left can assume so much about Canada and Canadians; leaving critical thinking out of the mix. The pouty responses are tiresome. Plus, the same person with different names keeps accusing people they are not a Canadian because they disagree with his pernicious posts.
As so many other Rebels have correctly pointed out, “Liberal country? …yes, in the true sense of the word.
Leftist, regressisive, socialist, politically correct, spineless, useful idiot liberals? No….those are lieberal party of Canada liberals. Not at all the same.”
commented 2017-06-12 11:08:25 -0400
Andrew, the 80’s huh? Some of us remember before that. Before PET destroyed the Canada that then existed as a personal vanity project to reshape the nation in his own image. We can’t completely turn back the clock but if enough people get an education apart from the Critical Theory of the CBC and the usual suspects we might just have a chance of maintaining a peaceful and civilized society.

Here is how it looks for us who grew up in earlier times:

“And as you enjoy the peace, stability and comparative prosperity of Canada in the 2010s just consider – this is how Canadians felt in the middle 1960s. Now imagine a political leader coming along and out of ignorance and arrogance despoiling all this success. Not because the leader faced some overwhelming crisis where it was hard to see the right answer. But utterly unnecessarily. Out of a clear blue sky. Like a malicious child on the beach stomping on the sand castle somebody else had worked all morning to build.

That was the political record of Pierre Trudeau."

Another poll for Jimmy, but of course this must true as he puts lots of stock in polls. LMAO!
commented 2017-06-12 01:46:33 -0400
Allow me to make a bold assumption, Jimmy was brought up by liberal twits who coddled him and kept him from real life. Since he thinks the 80’s was the same as today , he did not ever get out.
commented 2017-06-12 01:42:34 -0400
The left hates free speech , and they think they get to label what is or isn’t acceptable. SORRY LEFT WING AHOLES, i will say as i please and you cannot stop me.
commented 2017-06-12 01:41:48 -0400
Jimmy Reece left out this article form Huffpo for some reason. LMAO!
Hey Jimmy ,like someone else said, liberal is not like the Liberal party moron, why can’t you figure that out? And if the majority said Abortion should be defunded , would you go with it? If not , Why? You love spouting off about how most people want this or that, yet i know damn well you would cry like a bitch and pout about it if they went against you.
commented 2017-06-12 01:36:39 -0400
Jimmy Reece Ezra was totally reasonable in his reaction as Porter and other advertisers were lying about him and the rebel. And liberal is not the same as the Liberal party, they are very different. Now go support tyranny, you deserve to be silenced.
commented 2017-06-12 01:33:43 -0400
Jimmy Reece you must have slept through the 80’s , as they were nothing like now. And who the f*ck are you to decide who is a Canadian? Sorry but self important left wingers do not decide things like that. And Obama will be worst president ever while Trump will be one of the best , your left wing sites are so full of it and you know it. Now go watch a phony protest ala CNN. Or see how the BBC lied about the march today, just like the CBC lies.
commented 2017-06-12 01:30:21 -0400
Andrew Stephenson sorry but the left wing HRC does not decide what hate speech is , and being hauled before them does not make what you say hate speech. You are an ignorant fool who thinks you get to define speech. Tell me what hate speech Ezra was saying when he was hauled before them??
