"Laughable": Here's everything Maclean's got wrong about "the angry, radical right"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Maclean’s magazine just published a huge story called “The Angry, Radical Right," with the sub-headline, “Why a growing number of extremists are lashing out publicly at Muslim immigrants and Justin Trudeau."

What the author did was laughable:

He went to some public Facebook groups — where anyone in the world can write a message -- and he cherry-picked some people ranting politically about the PM and refugees.

The Maclean's article uses the word "extremist" five times — but never to talk about Muslim migrants or terrorists, of course. Only to describe old stock Canadians who are angry about Trudeau.

But those angry words on Facebook that Maclean's is suddenly so concerned about? They’re just words. Maclean’s used to support that sort of thing.

Remember Mark Steyn's cover story ten years ago, warning about Muslim migration?

Muslims took Maclean's to human rights court over that. It cost the magazine a quarter million dollars to fight back, but they did.

Maclean’s would never do that today.

Now they put convicted Al Qaida terrorist Omar Khadr on their cover, presenting him as a victim.

There are real threats in Canada. As I told their writer, the likelihood of being killed by Muslim terrorists is very low. The real threat is political Islam changing our culture.

But to Maclean’s, that’s just too difficult to talk about.

Besides, they know that the online commenters they went after in this article aren't going to take them to court, let alone an unfair human rights commission.

At The Rebel, we know what the real threats are. And exposing them is tougher work than reporting on comments left on obscure Facebook pages.

Michael Mann if you could read you’d know Bravo was in the military. Past tense moron!
Funny I don’t know any far right people. I’m right of centre like Harper was .
commented 2016-01-25 16:24:42 -0500
If you are a conservative; the liberals are all about hate mongering among the masses. It’s called “Let’s you and them fight.” Calling someone a Nazi or encouraging that behavior is giving license to behave without morality. It’s egotistical, stupid and ugly.

David Tremblay: You saying it is so does not make it so. There are far more radicals on the left of the political spectrum than the right. For all our “anger” we aren’t typically the ones you see in violent or destructive demonstrations demonstrations. In fact I would argue it’s hard to get conservatives motivated to do anything more than sign petitions or write on forums like these. Maybe we are too busy or don’t care enough. I don’t know. Maybe we need a more vocal or physical (not violent) presence because it is obvious the squeaky wheel has been getting greased and they can be counted on to vote.

Seems like McLean’s got this one “right”. The extreme right is very angry and has worked very hard to sabotage the modern political structure. The Conservatives moved so far right under Harper they think that the centrist Liberal party is extreme left wing. The Liberals are barely left of center now, if at all. Hate mongering is a much larger threat to Canadian citizens than any potential terrorists because hate mongering is and will continue to implant hate filled ideas in the minds of those that are already mentally imbalanced. This was exactly the same way that the Nazi party worked.
commented 2016-01-25 15:39:45 -0500
Yes I can read – Bravo is racist, a bigot and hate filled in addition to wanting liberal politicians killed. That’s what I have read.

Peace keeper.

LOL.
commented 2016-01-25 14:56:36 -0500
Obviously a dumb lefty like you Michael Mann can’t read. Bravo isn’t in the military now you asshole. Mark Vandermaas like Bravo served in the ME. mark served as a peace keeper in Egypt in 73 and he had a web site called Voice of Canada . He fully supported Israel based on reality.
People like you are just too dumb to accept truth.
commented 2016-01-25 14:42:00 -0500
Love how Ezra disturbs the Lefty’s nest and they swarm the Rebel with their venamous stings.
commented 2016-01-25 14:38:53 -0500
Hilarious Michael Mann you are an asshole. Bravo knows the reality. Blacks in places like Ferguson are so dumb they burn their own city including Black owned businesses. I guess reality messes with your left wing brain. Blacks do have people who understand this and that mob rule won’t get them anywhere.
commented 2016-01-25 13:29:15 -0500
It’s absolutely hilarious that people here think that because you serve in the military – this give you permission to be racist, homophobic, bigoted and hateful, when even the military wouldn’t tolerate Bravo’s comments.

Bravo didn’t fight for anyone’s freedom here. Assuming what Bravo says is the truth and HAS ACTUALLY SEEN REAL WAR – is he posting on The Rebel from Iraq and Afghanistan? This is Canada – not America and the Canadian military hasn’t been active to any great degree for many years now. Pushing papers in the military or being a glorified security guard, doesn’t make you a hero.

Do you really think just joining the military makes you a better person? Why do you think people with low intelligence and who have done poorly in school quite often join the military? It’s because they truly have no other options in life. It was certainly not their dream. I feel sorry for people like this – who were essentially railroaded into the military due to promises of an education and opportunities that are bullshit. They are just viewed as an expendable body.
commented 2016-01-25 12:42:43 -0500
Come on Ezra. Don’t dodge the issue. Sure, McLean’s is a for profit / hypocritical magazine just like every other magazine out there. But that’s an easy way out.

Why is it is a developed country like the U.S. about 35-40% of declared Conservatives are supporting Donald Trump? Donald Trump is NOT Alolf Hitler. But by Western Standards in the year 2016, he’s as Fascist as a politician can be .

I don’t think Canada is at the same level.
Or is it?
commented 2016-01-25 12:42:16 -0500
Kevin C-exactly-which goes straight back to the thin skinned hypocritical left not being able to handle the truth so they have to shut it down. It’s not Ezra running around suing everybody for hurting his feelings.
commented 2016-01-25 11:26:27 -0500
If Ezra is so upset with Macleans story about the angry right, then maybe Ezra should sue them for libel….oh wait, it’s Ezra who is the one usually being sued for libel.
commented 2016-01-25 11:09:06 -0500
If you care to trudge through the intellectual sewage left here by the usual reactionary cretinous trolls, you can see them repeatedly and unconsciously prove the point that extremism is not the monopoly of a single branded political partisanism. There’s enough irrational venom to poison the planet and Macleans is still going down the dead tree media flusher ever since they removed rationalist and libertarian commentary.

They idiot who attempted to sell magazines by penning this lame attempt at partisan polemics failed miserably in its premise and the commentary section on this thread is documented proof of his assumptions being fraudulent.
commented 2016-01-25 04:47:01 -0500
Nobody reads Maclean’s any more. It is a free give away magazine , that you will find in your Dentist’s or Doctor’s office.
It is almost as bad as the Chatelaine. A token article and then many different ways for females to beautify , scentify and glorify themselves to make their Men happy. It also teaches them how cook a descent meal. Everybody is afraid of telling the Truth.
commented 2016-01-25 04:22:54 -0500
Hey Ezra, great critique!
And keep up that great tone! :)

I have actually never read or purchased MacLames magazine.
I’ve always considered it a tabloid; full of tripe.
I wouldn’t even let them tongue bathe my muddy cleats.

Truth = freedom, so keep the truth coming, and the freedom will follow.

Canada has our Justin . Cute as he is. USA has their Obama . As deceptive and destructive as he is . We both have our Military . Which are neither Left nor Right. They are just loyal-to a point. https://youtu.be/lTs6a0ORdQU

Michael Man….from now on i will refer to you as mannie. Thanks Bravo, its like calling a little boy Jimmy or Johnny or Billy. Any way back to you mannie…..you and your ilk are the only fucktards that are on this site. To be correct, your leftist progressive fucktards. If you would really like to help society, I would suggest you donate your organs, all of them……now! Im sure there are some good souls in this country that could use them. thanks mannie
commented 2016-01-25 03:34:03 -0500
Mike the mini serves a purpose here, but Bravo Zulu is right, its silly to take a firestarter’s comments seriously. Mannie is nothing but a cheap drama queen. If he had to stand up to a real foe, he would pee himself.

Wait until the shite hits the fan here, then tell us conservatives are nothing but fearmongers. Lefties will be eating their words and choking on them. Snivelling cowards. The majority of Canadians have no confidence in Trudeau keeping the country safe, strong, and free. Other countries certainly don’t. Canada is back? No, its more like Canada is lost.

Michael,
Winston Churchill wrote,
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammeddanism lays its votaries. Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia is a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries . Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in a Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property-either as a child, a wife or a concubine-must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science- the science against which it had vainly struggled- the civilization of modern Europe might fall. As fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
He was right about Germany!

Michael Mann your right you are welcome here it’s important to hear both or more than both sides of any issue to make an informed decision or from an honest opinion the problem with the left is any disagreement with their opinion results in instance name calling bullying intimidation in attempt to silence your right to free speech and they show total intolerance

for instance my wife seen a picture on Facebook of Justin and Pierre with a caption that read the last time the dollar
was this low my dad was in power she thought it was funny and shared it she couldn’t believe the comments like you
ignorant bitch your a liar and on and on real nasty shit funny thing is we were both alive at the time and seen it with our own eyes

so she reposted it and said the truth hurts don’t it so for a group that preaches tolerance acceptance and understanding
their a joke they don’t believe in ( freedom of speech thought opinion or the expression there of ) if it doesn’t agree with what they say. It’s a total hypocrisy that borders on the lunatic fringe liberalitis I call it
and as far as Zullu Bravo goes any person that straps on a gun and puts his life on the line for you and me and maybe kills someone for you and me if he wants to lash out verbally he can say any god dam thing he wants to say
Right or wrong we sent those boys and girls up the asshole of humanity to serve us and protect us and die for us if need be

My parents were both in WW2 I know my freedom and rights came out of the end of a gun and were paid for in blood
your hero’s daddy wore a German helmet riding his motorcycle around town during WW2 he was old enough and fit enough to fight he chose not to because he was a coward or he just hated Canada and hoped the Nazis would win
and when Pierre was in power a WW2 vet from Atlantic Canada who lost one arm one leg and one eye was deemed 50% disabled by the VA
and Trudeau did nothing I’ve seen the liberals run this country and it’s economy into the ground twice in my life and leave us with a mountain of debt and sorry to say I’m going to see it for a third time

it’s a good thing the youth vote came out to support them they might live log enough to pay for it either way it’s the young people who will end up paying for their recklessness Just like we’ve been paying for Pierre’s recklessness all of our lives that’s to huge debt and defects

You guys take this mannie guy far too seriously.

However for those who have defended me I would say thank you.

First off if you know the definition of bigot – I am not – at least not always.

Most people are not – however at times they can be, have been and will be.

Even mannie if he were to be honest.

Second off if you know the definition of racist – everyone is – either a little or a lot.

Any person telling you they are not is a liar.

I like to think that most here are “realists”.

Mannie is simply playing you all.

Finally – any person can wordsmith all day and he is doing just that.

Now if only mannie would be involved in car crash as well – it would quite likely make my day.

I am on the road and doing things mannie dreams about in his basement.

When he is playing on-line war games.

Actually quite tense here at the moment.

Big hug to you mannie – if I see you in the ditch I will just keep on going. Someone as perfect as you needs no help from us racists and bigots.

Except mannie. Hope you enjoy that crash on the way to work today buddy.

Now take a long lingering lick of me arse and tell me how much you love me.

Just sign me a proud redneck that anyone (well, almost) on this site would be happy to have for a neighbour.

Best to all.

Us radical Right people did not murder 165 million in the 20th century like the secular left did. Of course lefties have their own version of history.
commented 2016-01-25 01:03:47 -0500
I guess the left and media party were all civil with Rob Ford LMAO!.
commented 2016-01-25 01:03:09 -0500
Sorry lefties we will talk back to this pathetic magazine, and we will criticize that moron Justin all we want. If you are so proud of your views then why are you so afraid of any debate and criticism of them , you hide from reality like cowards, then act like the crap you caused never happened. If you do not like us hitting back that is too damn bad. Now go kick some old lady out of her home and shower some refugee with cash.
commented 2016-01-25 01:00:31 -0500
Funny how Mclames never said a word about the threats to Harper. And the lefties censor and silence people, take their money , ignore the actions of Islamists , and they are somehow reasonable people LMAO!
commented 2016-01-25 00:58:55 -0500
Andrew Stephenson you made light of the increased suicide rate in ALberta , i guess that makes you a class act eh? I sure wish i was as good as a leftie LMAO!

Michael Mann my feces is more Canadian than you are and since when do you decide loser LMAO! Funny how you can be ignorant to us but we cannot even fight back , you lefties sure have a warped view of things.

Michael Mann please enlighten us as to why the lefties who said they wanted to assassinate Harper and that cow Mary Walsh comparing him to Hitler were somehow classy acts? And you called right wingers batshit crazy you are so much better. And sorry but you are the bigoted jackass, Justin is screwing people around ,they have a right to be critical, now go live lie to yourself some more. You are a joke.
commented 2016-01-25 00:34:00 -0500
Mancave,

Serving in the military isn’t a license to be racist, bigoted and hateful. In fact, that way of thinking and acting actually tarnishes any good he may have done. At the end of the day, he is just a racist, bigoted and hateful jackass.
commented 2016-01-25 00:31:38 -0500
Michael Mann——- why must you play this silly game ? Everybody likes Justin. He is a great guy. He is a fine man. He loves his wife and children . He does appear to have a problem or two—- ! —-He likes Himself more than his Country . 2… He doesn’t realize that he likes Himself more than his Country.
