Remember our Alberta bureau chief, Sheila Gunn Reid, being attacked by a “male feminist”, at the Women’s March last month in Edmonton? When Lauren Southern was attacked by left-wing extremists at the University of Toronto?
The other day, Gavin McInnes was pepper sprayed.
Then last weekend, masked Black Bloc fascists tried to storm a speech I was giving at the U of T. You may have seen the video of them calling our reporter Jay Fayza (who is black) a “white supremacist.”
On Sunday, the CBC ran a whole segment attacking the Rebel, calling us racist and hateful.
Here’s what Nora Loreto, a Unifor journalism union boss, said a few days ago:
I'm getting closet and closer to publicly advocating camera smashing when people see The Rebel goons out and about.— Nora Loreto (@NoLore) February 4, 2017
No denunciation by journalism professors, by politicians or by her own union.
I think the worst is yet to come. People want to silence our voice.
Tonight I’ll explain what we’re going to do about it.
Among other things, we’re hiring bodyguards.
I know, it’s insane. This is Canada, not Russia or Venezuela.
But that’s what life is like under Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley and Kathleen Wynne.
Bodyguards can cost up to $65 dollars an hour, and usually you have to pay for a four-hour minimum. So that has actually just doubled the cost covering public events.
But what’s the alternative?
Can you please help? We’ve set up a special crowdfunding page for our safety: SafetyFund.ca
Thank you for any help you can provide.
We promise to keep bringing you the other side of the story.
We won't let the fascists win.
NEXT: Our newest Rebel contributor, Barbara Kay, comes on to discuss the theme of her latest video:
Her worry that honest criticism of Islam could soon be illegal in Canada, thanks to Parliamentary motion M-103.
THEN: Someone who has unfortunately experienced more than his share of abuse for exercising his free speech rights, Tommy Robinson, calls in from the UK to talk about the attempt to ban President Trump from addressing Parliament on his state visit to England.
(PS: Tommy will also be joining the Rebel as a contributor very soon!)
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
