Our reporters are being assaulted. Here’s how we’re fighting back.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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:

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!

What is the difference between hate and dislike. I really dislike the Liberals in Ottawa and in Toronto and I really dislike a religion that tries to legislate me not disliking them??? Are they all nuts?

Ezra….up the road from me is a car repair garage with thousands of dollars worth of tools. The owner’s house is several hundred yards away. The security system consists of two fiercely loyal German Shepard dogs left there overnight with food and water. Nobody messes with that garage.

Time to get some real men from the right to attend these events. It would be fun kicking the fuck out of any lefty wing nut that tries anything. Nora Mutley Loreto, I would smash that ugly face of yours in with pleasure – equality and all.

This is the best news I’ve heard in a very long time – Tommy Robinson a contributor to the Rebel! He has many admirers and I’m a huge one, for his bravery and right-thinking, and everything he’s been through (which he has miraculously survived). We need more real men like Tommy to join the real men and women at the Rebel, and I hope their courage rubs off on us all because we’re going to need it.
