David Suzuki wants his opponents jailed (again) -- but that's not the scariest part

Rebel Staff

David Suzuki is at it again: Calling for "climate change deniers" and other people who disagree with him -- including Prime Minister Stephen Harper -- to be jailed.

That's bad enough, but there's something more serious we should all be worried about:

The huge impact Suzuki and other foreign-funded "progressive" activists and lobbyists could have on the outcome of the federal election.

I explain in my latest report.

READ Ezra Levant's bestselling books debunking environmentalist propaganda against the energy industry:

Groundswell: The Case for Fracking
Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oil Sands

Tim Hortons has declared war on Canada’s energy industry.

Fortunately Suzuki is in no position to jail anyone.

Rae Fraser, that’s a bit uncalled for. Say what you will about Suzuki’s politics and agenda, but there’s no need to throw out racist slurs. That said, Suzuki wouldn’t know real science if it crawled out of the primordial ooze and bit him on the ass. H.L. Mencken once said, “The aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Translation: the desire to save the world usually fronts a hidden agenda to rule it.

If his critics go to jail maybe he can be put in the loonie bin!

commie clown just about sums it up.

Suzuki should share the information he has. I have seen nothing except a minuscule effect from co2 on temperature. He should be jailed if he cannot show his accusations are close to true.

suzuki has been a commie clown all his life. cannot understrand why rebel is so scared to call this thing what he is. progressive? what? left wing scumm like him and right wing scum like hitler will never let anyone else have a different opinion than theirs. espiecally when they are always wrong. i am not a left wing clown or a right wing clown. i am progrssive. everyone is entitled to an opinion. dare say, hopefully not arrogantly, but most canadians are progressive and think freely and clearly just like me without left wing ding dongs or right wing dongs TELLING them what to do or say.

Isn’t this the guy who said North America should be evacuated after the Fukoshima nuclear meltdowns? He doesn’t have a lot of credibility, but he does have influence.
commented 2015-06-11 22:25:54 -0400
The only way these climate fascists could possibly win their argument is to force their opponents to shut up. In fact that’s the only “argument” climate know-nothings like Suzuki have.

In reality, Canadians have endured 10 years of poisonous and toxic political campaigning from the defeated Liberals and the emboldened NDP who have been playing dirty and have been launching attack after attack on the Conservative government. The opposition has brought us a form of political warfare and their has been no peace because of it. The opposition and their environmental and aboriginal friends and foreigners have been conspiring together in a massive campaign to try and get back who they want in power. The mainstream media is one of the main conspirators and champions of these people. The media no longer represents the people of Canada and is now a political propaganda machine meant to control and socially re-engineer us to follow their ideology. Free speech and thought has been hi-jacked as they suppress other points of view.
I urge everyone here to cancel any newspaper they may subscribe to because most newspapers have been corrupted in this way. Also, do not believe what you read because the writers and editors are biased and partisan.

As far as" the huge impact Suzuki and other foreign-funded “progressive” activists and lobbyists could have on the outcome of the federal election", it is a huge concern. Things are terribly skewed already. If Harper gets in again, it will be postponed, and if a decent Republican gets in in the U.S. there may be some hope. If only one or none of those things happen, we’re hooped, until the sheeple feel the hard smack of hitting rock bottom and finally realise they have been hosed. Of course then it could take decades if ever to become “un-serfed”

@ Kevin Cartier . . . . if you want to see the Depth of the Suzes knowledge . . .. just watch his appearance on Ausi TV in front of REAL Scientists. Suze didn’t even know the names of the 4 contributors to the IPCC data set. The man is a joke!
Nye the science guy . . . is a Mechanical Engineer . . . while he might know lots about hydraulics and metal fatigue . . . he knows NOTHING about AGW . . . or Gorebull Warming . . . just spouting nonsense for the masses, and getting well paid.

Of course living greener is the right way but intelligent people don’t accept solutions from the very people that are the worst offenders.( Corporations & Governments) They create the policies, they exploit loopholes, they write the rules. They lead the way right or wrong. They don’t ask you. I personally will not be told I’m responsible for climate change. I’m all for living greener. I’ll never accept being told anything by these self-interest/self-important globalists that are responsible for 80% of it in the first place. What kind of fool accepts a solution from the largest perpetrators of the crime? You want people to go forward with new solutions? Have people that can be believed and inject real morality in the discussion. Suzuki has made a career by sucking public monies from governments and corporations. His opinion is tainted with the stink of corruption. Soon focus of what is behind the man and his opinions will be looked at more closely by the awakening public.
commented 2015-06-11 00:14:41 -0400
Kevin Cartier, I repeat what I said: David Suzuki wrote his doctorial thesis so long ago that I’m willing to bet he doesn’t even remember half of what he wrote. Yet he can still claim the title of Doctor and Scientist, and wear that title like a crown. His degree is obsolete… way past its “best before” date. However, where he does excel is in the area of lobbying, public relations, bull shit, and, self-promotion. In those areas, he’s superb… an absolute master. And as far as Bill Nye goes, mechanical engineering does not a Climatologist make, and a bachelor’s does not a Scientist make.
commented 2015-06-11 00:11:30 -0400
Suzuki takes substantial money from foreign funders, as Ezra has pointed out here. Groups who have vested interest in slowing and stopping if possible, our ability to extract our gas and oil. What any scientist decrees as truth, fact and the bottom line, is only as valid as who’s funding lines his pocket. So these foreign groups are paying Suzuki, and since he has no morals is happy to take money from unethical sources, all under the guise of environmental stewardship and global responsibility. It is sickening.
commented 2015-06-10 22:40:59 -0400
Suzuki is an academic, not a climate scientist.
commented 2015-06-10 22:37:38 -0400
“Nye has a bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Cornell and occasionally returns there as a professor to lecture on astronomy and human ecology.”, Well that makes Nye as much a climate scientist as Suzukis with his bug degree .
commented 2015-06-10 22:27:39 -0400
‘Liza, you dismiss Bill Nye and David Suzuki because their knowledge does not fit with your opinion;" Kevin, you have to do better than that line out of the liberal play book. I have done enough research on my own to fully understand where they are coming from, and it ain’t from the truth. They are misguided and blinded by what they mistakenly believe to be the “right side of history”. and that is more credit than I usually give that bunch of power freaks.
commented 2015-06-10 22:02:13 -0400
When did Suzuki become such a whack out freak?
commented 2015-06-10 21:53:55 -0400
Liza, you dismiss Bill Nye and David Suzuki because their knowledge does not fit with your opinion; you listen to Ezra because he supports your opinion. Is it possible that Nye and Suzuki are right? Is that even remotely possible? You won’t even consider that they might be right because your opinion is so strong. That makes your opinion weak. Not considered reputable scientists? here’s a link to Suzuki’s resume: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/downloads/drsuzukiCV.pdf
Nye has a bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Cornell and occasionally returns there as a professor to lecture on astronomy and human ecology. I consider him a real scientist, he knows what he’s talking about. If your only argument is that they’re money hungry then your argument is weak. Try listening to what they say and explaining what’s wrong with it. Even scientists are wrong sometimes. You have the right to your opinion, but you should at least back it up with a valid argument.
commented 2015-06-10 20:06:23 -0400
Even if that percentage is remotely accurate, it means he only needs a hair of 10 to make 40, which is all he needs to get in, and I have no doubt he will exceed that by election time.

“Lastly, I take the word of scientists like David Suzuki, Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye before I take the word of Ezra Levant.” Kevin , that says it all. My kids watched bill nye the science guy, suzukis life time cbc gig on the discovery of things also. They are not considered reputable scientists, sorry. Not sure what Neils problem is, maybe figured there was more money in the snake oil side of it.

Boy Mary, I’m with you. Except for the neg. ad part. The mainstream media will paint the picture they want to paint regardless. Look at Kevin, he thinks only 28.6% of Canadians are behind Harper, so says some stupid useless liberal poll. What choice do the Conservatives have but to fight back with attack ads, none of the media outlets play fair.

I am SICK to death of people like Suzuki, Unions and various other agitators interfering with OUR democratic election process. NO ONE should be allowed to interfere with our election process…there should be NO negative ads from anyone and particularly from a hypocrite like Suzuki who has made himself a rich man by playing on peoples’ fears, giving them negative and untrue information. I am at the stage where I wonder if it is worth my while voting, my vote seems to mean nothing in this country any more because of the above mentioned people trying to sway elections to suit their agenda. Elections are about the right’s of CANADIANS to a democratic say in what happens in their country and NOT to those people who are lining their pockets without a care of what it does to our country. Suzuki is a despicable liar, a total jerk and he needs to shut his mouth. As for unions….don’t get me started….they are a cancer in our country and the time will come when they WILL be crushed. I can’t wait for that.
commented 2015-06-10 16:26:51 -0400
Ezra: “just to give you a hint at how extremist this foreign army is” then he reads a quote from David Suzuki saying “We’ve come through ten years of the most hostile government ever toward the environment, first nations and social justice”. That’s an opinion and it’s a valid opinion believed by many. People have the right to disagree with Harpers policies without being called extremist.

Then Ezra goes on to say here’s a hint of the kind of world Suzuki would prefer to the one we have now. Suzuki said: “If you were CEO and ignored information material to the well-being of your company, you could be thrown in jail for that…if we are to have a democracy, we have to get out there and ask our leaders to state their position on these issues and make them tell us.” Ezra then goes on to twist Suzuki’s words and Ezra says: “he said that Stephen Harper should be jailed!” with a look of astonishment on his face, and his fist clenched.

Ezra then says that Stephen Harper, just like most Canadians are not wilfully blind, we just disagree with David Suzuki and we’re not paid millions of dollars by lobby groups to attack. Well I hate to tell ya Ezra, but that’s complete BS that most Canadians agree with Harper; just look at the polls. Last I heard 28.6% is not most Canadians. And why is it ok for the Conservatives to get money from big business, but it’s not ok for Liberals to get money from Lobby groups? Lastly, I take the word of scientists like David Suzuki, Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye before I take the word of Ezra Levant.

I find it amazing how people who have everything in life can turn against there country, all in the pursuite of fame and wealth.

Suzuki is a pompous ass draining money from tax payers to undermine our democracy and economy on the foundation of bogus science. Why can’t he just pack up all his stuff and loot and move to Saudi Arabia or better still, he could move to Cuba and help them out. He is a traitor and a saboteur and should not receive a single loonie more from the tax payer.
How did we ever allow these buffoons so much influence in the first place is beyond me.

Jailed for having an opinion? What’s wrong here? Nobody expects The environmental inquisition!
commented 2015-06-10 11:10:53 -0400
I know it would never happen, but I sure would like to see Suzuki interviewed by someone who doesn’t buy into his bullsh*t. The best vid I have ever seen of him being properly quartered and strung up was from the Australian Climate Change conference a few years back, it was truly a epic question and answer period. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hKdmQMVJ70
commented 2015-06-10 10:58:22 -0400
Suzuki has been senile for years so consider the source – even before he went into full blown age dementia, he was a Malthusian misanthrope – so wanting to jackboot people for having adverse opinion is in line with his character – or lack of it in this case.

Anonymous asks, “He exudes hostility. How can a person in his position remain so sour?”, because it serves his pocketbook plain and simple, he has to keep the lie alive.
