Introducing our NEW team: Meet Rebel Australia!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As many of you know, The Rebel was born in February 2015. Thanks to your support, we’ve grown amazingly in two years, with viewers around the world.

That means we also have international commentators now too. We already have a solid team in the UK; I met with them recently in London.

Tonight, I’ll introduce you to some new faces, this time in Australia:

Some of you are already familiar with Claire Lehmann, through her outspoken (yet soft spoken) videos for us.

We talk about the problems she had getting her writing critical of feminism published in the Australian press, and discuss what other topics the media considers taboo here.

Next, meet Dr. Tanveer Ahmed.

He came to Australia from Bangladesh when he was a child. Ahmed became politicized when he began witnessing troubling trends within his Muslim community, especially in his role as a psychiatrist.

After hearing our conversation about identity, patriotism and immigration, I think you’ll be eager to see Dr. Ahmed’s first video commentary for the Rebel!

Finally, I’ll introduce you to Alison Bevege.

A while back, she actually won a Human Rights Tribunal case she filed after a Muslim speaker in a public library told her to sit at the back of the room.

From there, she asked him if he believed that apostates from Islam should be killed — and he said yes!

As you might have guessed, Bevege is a fearless reporter — she reminds me of our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid.

Bevege will be covering different beats in Australia for the Rebel:

Multiculturalism, immigration, indigenous affairs — issues that have stunning parallels in Canada, as you'll hear.

All three of these commentators agree that the Rebel will give Australians a forum to discuss issues that are often considered off limits — and not just in “Oz,” either.

I wind up my report with a funny encounter we had in Sydney. We later learned that this “Antifa activist” was really a Melbourne comedian named Lewis Spears , but I have to say, he sure had the Marxist lingo down pat.

And hey, if we're already well-known enough in Australia to get “trolled,” that's not so bad...

So stay tuned as we bring out new videos from Claire Lehmann, Dr. Tanveer Ahmed and Alison Bevege — bringing you “the other side of the story,” from the other side of the world.

Ezra, what a concept, that ‘multi-multiculturalism’ could have a limit.
Justin Trudeau doesn’t think so., unfortunately.

Don’t worry Nazza, we love Canada and won’t be abandoning it anytime soon. The no nonsense Aussie cussing is going to take some getting used to for many. I have been introduced to it by a brother who lived there for several years so it goes in one ear and out the other. I don’t suppose you could use the English slang,‘berk’. I understand it means the same but doesn’t sound so harsh. Welcome to the Rebel anyway. I look forward to some Aussie opinions and perspectives.

Great news – looking forward hearing from the Aussie team. We can learn a lot from them as they have had a greater number of refugees sooner than Canada. Congrats to the Rebel!

LOVE the U.K & Aussie Teams!!! Its so wonderful to have been loyal to The Rebel since the beginning!! Something i will be telling my granddaughter on a regular basis :)

I thought Christopher Wilson was the South African guy.
commented 2017-04-29 22:09:40 -0400
This is going to be amazing! I don’t know where you find these people but they all look very promising indeed.
Absolutely, Canadians will be interested in their point of view. It sounds like we have lots of views in common.

Fred Albertan—-I was going to suggest S. Africa next as they are a member of the Commonwealth; I am afraid that that Country is too far gone. My neighbor says they will go back to eating each other again.

I hope the new contributors can also get us some news from New Zealand.
commented 2017-04-29 02:03:18 -0400
Alison seems good and tough; the others might be forced to give in and change their views.
commented 2017-04-29 01:38:39 -0400
love it all those leftist nay sayer saying that the rebel would not do well ezra has advances to now down under way to go ezra.

I agree, Canadian Mongrel, that does not sound like a comment from Peter Babich. Completely out of character.

I wonder if his account is being mimicked like happened to Drew in another article thread.

Keith Barnes said, “Looks like You are putting a fine Crew together both Ausie and Limey.”

Ausie, Limey, Yankee, and Canuck.

Sounds like a recipe to take over the world! … well, at least influence the world, take over comes later.

Solid expansion of Rebel reach – I guess all the Mom’s basement trolls were wrong about rebel demise ;-0

Good on the Rebel for bringing these wonderful people on board! I subscribed from the start and you can count on my support till the end! This is going global and with the demise of dinosaur media,we need this more than ever! When I get back to work I will contribute more.
commented 2017-04-28 22:39:08 -0400
Tell you what, why don’t we set up a debate between Claire Lehmann and Justin Trudeau on a range of topics including feminism and immigration. Yeah, I think we know how that would go…
commented 2017-04-28 22:21:14 -0400
Peter Babich

? HUH ?
commented 2017-04-28 22:00:15 -0400
Well done, Ezra. Well done!

As one of your earliest financial supporters, I must say this has exceeded all expectations. May I suggest South Africa next? Conservatives have no presence in Africa. That should be corrected.
commented 2017-04-28 21:51:39 -0400
I am so excited about the phenomenal growth of Rebel. This is wonderful! I was thrilled about the expansion into the U.K. and U.S. and with Eric Duhaime (one of my favourites from Sun News) into Quebec, but this is taking it to the next level. I’ve been a supporter from week 1 and am so proud of this “Little News Company that could”.
commented 2017-04-28 21:40:25 -0400
Just to add, I tipped a few with Australian Mongrels, be nice to see one of them crop up in commentary.
commented 2017-04-28 21:36:04 -0400
Sydney is nice, makes me think of doing another trip, but make sure your great team gets to the Red Centre, where the real no nonsense types are in Australia.

Also thought how funny it is that the team includes a psychologist and a psychiatrist. Add Dr. Jordan Peterson, and The Rebel has a unit of professionals to analyze why regressive left idiots are mental idiots.
commented 2017-04-28 21:33:31 -0400
Saw the whole video this morning, Ezra, with the Beanstalk interview in full. Thought it was going to get a little nasty when he grabbed your Mike.

Looks like You are putting a fine Crew together both Ausie and Limey. Congratulations.

Note, Being called an Ausie or a Limey is not an insult to an Anglo or an Australian.
commented 2017-04-28 21:32:57 -0400
EZRA ! Super way to end the week

EZRA you and antifads boy are complete opposites in every way possible , a metaphor meeting

BRETT MCSWEENEY , welcome to the REBEL , as first Australian commenter

That fella is from the “I want everything free” group of sheeple. There should be no jobs, right…
commented 2017-04-28 21:07:24 -0400
I’m so glad that The Rebel is giving the citizens of the UK & Australian’s a voice, and it confirms for us in the west, that we are dealing with the very same issues. The more our governments and the MSM try to silence us, the more we need to keep speaking out. The people need to stand against censorship, especially the type that protects Islam, at the expense of freedom and democracy.
commented 2017-04-28 21:07:05 -0400
Fantastic! It felt a bit odd, as an Australian, to be a subscriber to a Canadian media outlet. Now not so much!
commented 2017-04-28 21:00:17 -0400
The political and cultural landscape of Australia is so very similar to Canada and the UK.

What an excellent crew in Australia and in the UK. This is great, Ezra, top notch.
commented 2017-04-28 20:56:07 -0400
- I wonder if the socialist elites are regretting shutting down Sun News at this point. I doubt Sun News would have become anywhere near as large or far reaching as The Rebel has. What’s happening in Australia is similar to what’s happening throughout the West. It looks like The Rebel has put together another great team. I saw the interview with the antifa twig boy. At least he was willing to talk to you. Maybe there’s hope for him down the road some day.
commented 2017-04-28 20:47:26 -0400
Good news! The Rebel is taking over the world.
