Just under 50% of 34 year old’s and younger..are the viewership..wow..just imagine if The Rebel had a different name that fit it to a tee!

Great speech Ezra..I’m very appreciative of you and your Team with the hard work all of you(former & current Team) have done in the past and going forward.

“Keep on truck’in”…. and “hang in there baby”.

I said the rebel was a poor choice for a name the start. Paints them as a fringe group when really their views are shared by most canadians

Muta Ween,

Yes, extreme right/alt-right thinking is definitely a special kind of “reasoning”. In some cases, it comes with white hoods.

Except ,of course, the KKK were Democrats, not Republicans and it was the Republicans who freed the slaves and lost 350,000 men to do so. But don’t let the facts get in the way of your bias.

And I mean MAGIC puppies everyone.
Boobs that launched a thousand ships. Lol. Okay, enough joking.

As for being on a police watch list.
Don’t promise them hell. There is give and take here. We can reform each other. Everybody can unless you are a complete psychopath. If you have a beating heart, you can learn to love each other and work for change.
And if that fails, make sure you have great tits & show’em so the judge throws out your case ;) JOKING HERE.
Have fun guys.

I weep for the state of the world.
I weep for Britian. I weep for France. I weep for Europe and the pains of the USA. Its like ww2 all over again and the pain is fresh in everybody’s minds. The losses are incalculable.
But I think if The Rebel was really named The Rebel to rebel against the narrative, it would have been called “The Rebels”. That is what I believe.
I also believe the psychological warfare of the Left, making you feel alone needs to be combated fully.
Yes, conservatives think freely and don’t follow the masses. But we shouldn’t all be alone when doing so. That’s our actual mass. Finding out who is with us. Are the masses really against us or are they our compatriots?

NICHOLAS CONKLIN….

Did you know that Hitler was a far left Socialist? You know, those people who talk with their fists and think with AK 47’s. Eff of son, you are out of your class on these pages.

Deborah Graupner,

True – that’s why so many on the right are white supremacists. Fools indeed in addition to being racist.

What differentiates conservatives from other political philosophies is the ability to exercise and apply independent reasoning and thought and by definition resist the tendency to be a mindless follower of the masses .

Peter Netterville,

Anyone can see The Rebel’s traffic and ranking. Including you if you weren’t such a mindless sheep who believes whatever Ezra tells you.

Completely off topic but read it.

Think back to that balmy night on 23rd June 2016. The night when the United Kingdom voted for its independence and freedom from a failing experiment. Did you feel euphoria and a sense of real belonging. Did you have an overwhelming sense of success, patriotism and national pride.

The events leading up to that day were historic, entertaining and galvanized this country into a conversation like nothing else. It was a time of coming together, whichever side you lay your head and heart on. It was a time of joie de vivre and a nation that had encouraged and allowed its people to speak.

As a foot soldier and leaflet distributor for vote leave, a spokesperson for Ukip in Yorkshire, I felt that I had contributed. I felt that I had invested. I am sure many others did too. I was excited and very optimistic, certainly for the immediate future as we had to have endured project fear. Houses did not lose 18% of there value, and we did not need an emergency budget. 800,00 people did not immediately lose their jobs and we did not plunge into a recession, the likes of which have not been seen since the great American depression.

Fast forward two and a half years, that realpolitik has totally disappeared, almost as quickly as Boris Johnson’s attempts at securing the premiership of the country. Not as quick though of course as Cameron and Osborne who scuttled off to pastures new double sharp. Or in fact of course Nigel Farage, who has realised by now and at last, that it was not job done, not by a long way.

That great feeling that the people had taken back control of their destiny and future has been slowly worn down and put through the grinder until it has now been replaced by frustration, anger and despair. Parliament no longer engages with the people. They treat us as they did prior to and since that summers day, with contempt, insolence and disdain. No more are the debates, Wembley gatherings and tours. Long gone are the days of politicians pulling pints in your local and talking to the `real people`. We are just, it seems simply not worthy.

This momentous time in our history has now been reduced to a party political football, within the family of footballs that are housebuilding, transport, education and the NHS. Important domestic footballs of course but Brexit must for sure take precedence and be beyond political point scoring. Brexit must be recognized for what it is, the biggest singular event since the silencing of the guns at the end of WWII for this United Kingdom.

Sickened am I though by the antics of our elected representatives who argue like school children over their stances. Selfish singular ideologies and career saving are the order of the day. Far away and long gone now is the feeling, that we are saving our nation and its peoples from being swallowed whole in a super state of vacuous ideologues. Thoughts of looking toward an exciting and prosperous future are smothered in doom and gloom again as project fear rages on and on.

The utter arrogance and complacency of the MP`s and unelected House of Lords cannot go unremarked, not just by this writer but the nation. People, whether remain or leave must surely have knots of frustration and anger in their stomachs when thinking about Brexit. How far then are we away from real protest, real uprising and a reckoning. It cannot come through the ballot box because that is an event too far away. The ballot box cannot be relied on either because of the first past the post system that skewers any result in the favour of the two main parties.

Are we heading for a further poll tax moment in our history? Time will tell of course. I must be crystal clear here, I am not an advocate of civil unrest. I do though believe, that the appetite to secure what was fought for is rising and quickly, the abject failure to deliver that will surely have a consequence. With nothing to choose from though, one wonders where the next real government will come from.

Ukip are without a doubt the only political party of note who have remained true to the cause and have never blinked nor flinched with regards to Brexit. Their raison d`etre is still Brexit and must remain so. However turning their attention onto other matters may just cost them if they do blink. It is without a doubt their greatest chance in the next six months to make a real in road and secure their political future having had two years of annus horribilis.

The people who voted leave will not be stupid enough second time around to fall for the nonsense fed to them, neither will those who chose remain. I have always advocated that if you bully, or tell the Brits what to do, you lose. Parliament, both houses, are on very thin ice at the moment. Parliament cannot afford to cheat the public from what they gave us, freedom and the right to speak up for ourselves.

If they do, they have been warned.

Of course we are on a list. Canadians are also making a list and dont need to check it twice.

The demographics is what has the left spending millions to support the lying MSN.

Al said, “No doubt my name has just been added to their watch list if it wasn’t there already.”

I would bet that anyone who posts comments here is in a watch list database. Using an alias does not help much because that is easily overcome in a real search.

Good to see younger viewers tune in. I think I would hate to be a teen and get bombarded by left wing teachers and their social justice courses.

Take a listen to this. Re: Police taking pics of licence plates at the Rebel event.
________________________________________________________________________________This is why cops do not automatically get my support or respect. My dad was a cop in Calgary so I come by my hesitancy honestly. I every case where tyrants rule the cops are always their minions on the street. During WWII cops of every nation that the Nazis invaded were only too willing to work for them. Same in the USSR.

We have seen how the cops in England treated Tommy Robinson and we have seen them turn a blind eye to Palestinians beating Jews in Calgary and Antifa attacks nationwide to name but a few. Now we see them doing the work of the gestapo in gathering personal information for The Groper’s files. Just like our old pal George Soros.

In short, there are some great cops but here are always the sellouts. The days of my automatic support are over so any respect has to be earned.

Take a listen to this. Re: Police taking pics of licence plates at the Rebel event. Kelly Day calls the Calgary Police to ask WTF. She is too nice to say that, she politely asked if her plate number was in some kind of hate speech database. Hate speech police ? Wha? Collecting intelligence? Wha? We really do live in a fascist state.

Brenda Snipes has ‘finally’ resigned! Why? Because she wants to spend more time with her family.
Too bad she hadn’t thought of that before the election.

Good speech Ezra, keep that battle flag at full mast.
