CRTC’s demand for more regulatory power fulfills Trudeau’s threat to takeover the Internet

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I talked about how the CRTC, the same people who shut down Sun News Network, now want the power to regulate voices on the Internet they don’t like.

No one in the Media Party is talking about their rather Orwellian proposal that would target short news videos like what we specialize in here at The Rebel Media.

The CRTC wants new laws to give them more power, and more “flexible tools” so they can do what they like without having to check back with Parliament.

Watch as I show you what they’re proposing and ask yourself - do you doubt that the CRTC would hesitate to shut down a conservative news site like The Rebel with Trudeau and Gerald Butts egging them on?

Al Peterson,

Of course – The Rebel have their “paid trolls” as well that go around defending this place.
You are forever assuring us that The Rebel is on its last legs and is going under any day now. Where would a small time operation like Three Rebel get money to pay trolls? You are once again demonstrating your desperate desire for comforting lies.

Peter Netterville,


Thanks for proving my point and that I am completely right about you.

Dems took over in November and they could have stopped the shutdown – Peter said so. What a moron.

YAWN The same old, same old horse shit & lies from Nicholas/Jimmy DaLyin’ Silva.

Even the name you claimed is your real name, Jimmy Da Silva, is a lie. You lie with an ease and professionalism that indicates you have been doing it for many years. Nothing you say can be trusted.

Peter Netterville,

I have provided such links – many many times, but you deny it anyway and make excuses.

Even when Brian Lilly – the CO-FOUNDER OF THE REBEL – said many of the same things that I have been saying about The Rebel, when he explained his reason for leaving in the interviews that had had done. You made excuses as if his view wasn’t valid, rambled on like you always do and then you did your usual disappearing act.

Let’s not pretend like you are some open minded guy who is willing to have your mind changed or be proven wrong. You are not. You believe what you believe, you are extreme right and nothing will change that. Especially not another media source that calls out The Rebel for what they are.

Al Peterson,

Of course – The Rebel have their “paid trolls” as well that go around defending this place. The important thing is that Scheer thinks this place is a hateful shithole and won’t have anything to do with it, even if becomes PM. He would be happy if the The Rebel was banned from the internet.

Hey Nicholas, or should we say Justin. Is that you? We know you’re a socialist dictator in the making but if you really need to fabricate a fake online ID then you are really becoming desperate. How stupid do you take Canadians to be?
I read a report from the NDP that you were seen in a shoe store in a muslim neighborhood recently being fitted for a pair of jack-boots. Is this true? Your suits are also a little bland. Have you considered attaching an armband to one sleeve above the elbow just to stand out from the crowd a little more? I think that look would really work for you. It would tell the world “I’m ready to take charge.”

This same principle also applies to accusations of racism, extreme right wing, or any other accusation.

If the accuser cannot:
1. Post a link to the video/article where the supposed offence occurred
2. Prove hoe this comment fits the accusation
then the accusation is false and the accuser is a liar.
commented 2019-01-14 07:51:44 -0500
If The Rebel is posting videos/articles where they are lying, then bring those lies forward so we can all see them.

- Post a link to the video/article.
- Highlight the supposed lie
- Prove that what was said/written was a lie

If the accuser cannot provide proof of lies, then his accusation means nothing.

It funny that when you watch the CBC video Nicholas posted that the comment section is almost entirely in support of The Rebel.

This news is right out of the “Dictator’s Handbook”.

The second order of business for a would-be dictator is to silence the opposition. This is done right after taking away all the weapons from the population.

Canada, don’t make the same mistake in 2019, we can’t afford to have this madman in office another second let alone another 10 months or 4 years. Your life depends on it.

Little Nicholas likes the thought of banning since hearing the truth makes him soil his diaper.
commented 2019-01-14 01:14:39 -0500
Nicholas Conklin what if a tyrannical party on the right gets into power and uses this same legislation? Ever thought of that?
commented 2019-01-14 01:12:30 -0500
Banning the Rebel means the left is SCARED of them, and they know it.
commented 2019-01-14 01:11:56 -0500
Nicholas Conklin needs his safe space and that means banning others. Of course he will get a wake up call when he realizes he will not be the one choosing what else gets banned LMAO!
commented 2019-01-14 01:10:56 -0500
Nicholas Conklin another websites opinion is hardly a fact. Now tell us where the Rebel is lying. The first site you linked to says CBC only leans left , that is utter hogwash.

When The Rebel is banned, most people will be celebrating – including Andrew Scheer.
If, by "most people, you mean “most leftists” then you would be correct but deceitful Have you polled most people? Or is your god complex talking?. But most leftists have no substance to their arguments so they rely on spewing opinions as facts. They hate being proven wrong so they would rejoice at having no voice correcting their lies.

So why is is that you and other leftists are so desperately seeking comforting lies and want the truth banned?
commented 2019-01-14 00:03:23 -0500
So, Nostradamus, I count some 23 posts on this one article alone by you buy you claim I “live here”.

Say, Nostradamus, did I miss the hammer falling? Again. This is getting rather tiresome. You claimed it was this weekend for sure. Of course you have lied about it before so you have underwhelmed my rapidly falling expectations. of you.
commented 2019-01-13 23:08:51 -0500
Nicholas, exactly what I said about The Rebel. Sheer is a weakling so I won’t take anything from him. The Rebel does not lie to the people which is what frightens the left. That and the truth.

The Rebel Media (or The Rebel) is a conservative Canadian online political and social commentary media platform founded in February 2015 by former Sun News Network host Ezra Levant. The Rebel displays overt right wing bias in reporting and tends to source to other articles on The Rebel website rather than outside sources. The Rebel is mostly opinion based therefore we give them a mixed factual rating. (10/9/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 2/25/2017)

This nails it too:

I barely watch CNN as I can’t stand the loser hosts. I can see right through their empty heads. All they are is TDS on steroids. I don’t have The Rebel in the same sphere as CNN or CBC. They are a small right leaning news agregator that does offer some opinion pieces – none being left wing. Fox leans right but is fair. CNN and CBC will not even shows real news that does not fit their narrative. Anything to do with an illegal immigrant committing a crime will not be talked about on these channels. CNN slants news to fit their narrative so they are actually worse than CBC.
commented 2019-01-13 22:52:05 -0500
Well really at least the Rebel does not pretend their not Partisan thats the difference They say what they are not like CBC i dont watch CNN i dont care what happens in the US
commented 2019-01-13 22:51:32 -0500
Libs RMorons,

Even fake conservatives is more than The Rebel has when it comes to a real or fake liberal, but that’s not actually true. Are you telling me Rick Santorum is secretly a liberal, because he is on CNN?

So let me get this straight – you are making that the argument that CBC and CNN have a liberal slant and thus don’t tell the truth. But The Rebel have a far right slant and that just so happens to also be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Really think about this before you respond. Even Fox News have contributors that give Trump shit and call out his lies. The Rebel has none of that.
commented 2019-01-13 22:49:53 -0500
If anyone on this site believes that the Rebel is lying…

PROVE IT! or STFU! and take a long haul on your master Trudeau’s arse when he’s farting out a steak dinner.. and while McKenna is complaining about cow farts.. and meat eaters.
commented 2019-01-13 22:44:27 -0500
Nicholas, you have got to be kidding? CBC and CNN have faux Conservatives on staff. They are a complete joke. There is a difference in bias and not reporting the truth. Yes, The Rebel is biased to the right but does report the truth. The CBC and CNN are biased to the left and hide truth and report their version of news of which a lot is fake news.
commented 2019-01-13 22:36:09 -0500
Libs RMorons,

You do realize The Rebel is the same thing as CBC or CNN – just that their bias is far right.

Bias is bias.

The Rebel doesn’t just report the truth. It’s just what you already agree with.

At least CBC and CNN have conservatives on staff. The Rebel doesn’t have a liberal contributor to help offer BOTH sides of the story.
commented 2019-01-13 22:26:33 -0500
Nicholas, sadly people will celebrate The Rebel being banned because they report the truth and do not cowtow to the Liberals. The left takes their directions from the globalist elites so anyone questioning their views is wrong speak. Anyone getting their news from CBC or CNN would have no clue what is really going on in the world today.
