Ezra Levant in Paris: Rally in the Place de la Republique "more like a street festival"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Today a thousand or so people, mostly young people, gathered in the Place de la Republique.

They knew it was a momentous occasion, but they didn’t quite know what it meant, or what to do or say.

So they smoked marijuana, sang Top 40 pop songs, and took lots of selfies.

There were a few patriotic flourishes — they sang the French anthem, and even chanted “Liberté!” a few times.

But it felt more like a festival than a call to action, let alone a change of course.

SIGN UP and don't miss any of Ezra Levant's reports from Paris.

All Ezra Levant's reports from France, and more on the terrorist attack in Paris, are collected HERE.

Judging by the victims named so far, the vast majority were students, artists, intellectuals, etc. Great. Now, Ezra really can’t relate to the events – it’s not like he would be interested in them when they were alive. Hell, he would have called them the enemy.

This is depressing.. it makes me sick to my stomach. ISIS have slaughtered thousands of innocent people, committed the most heinous acts we’ve seen in history, and no one wants to get involved or get their hands dirty. It’s ok to be angry and want Justice people. It’s time that we do become the aggressors for a change, and dictate how things will be from now on. I will not be afraid, I will not run and hide my head in the sand.

Taking selfies? Isn’t this what our new Prime Minister did at the G20 summit? He fits right in with these young people of Paris. Marijuana? That is coming for Canada’s young!

A different era. Sheep to the slaughter.

It’s almost like Ezra wants to incite a riot.
commented 2015-11-16 07:12:27 -0500
What do you honestly expect Ezra? Not everyone is filled with hate and rage against Muslims like you. The response has been no different than the attack in Boston – people coming together peacefully.
commented 2015-11-16 06:15:31 -0500

Go home. You are too drunk.

Brad why are so many Arab Muslim countries not taking in any of these refugees? Why did Lebanon stop taking them a year ago? Is it because they want white Christian purity? LMAO And please tell me where was your concern while Christians are being slaughtered? And please anytime a native speaks against this please call them racist LMAO!

Brad i have colored friends and Muslim friends so spare me your phony claims of bigotry , Ezra is observing that singing songs will do nothing, sorry if you do not like what he observes , now go hate Jews you pathetic worm. And go beat women like your masters want you to do. Just because you think bending over is fine does not mean we will do so. I feel the same about white people who go to join ISIS moron. Of course you cannot stand that not everyone is a bigot like you so you have to project like a pathetic child. WAAAA WAAAA THE PARIS ATTACKS GO AGAINST MY IDIOTIC VIEW, I WILL DISHONESTLY ATTACK EZRA AND OTHERS FOR LETTING ME KNOW THE TRUTH, LMAO!

Seems Ezra was lamenting that there was not more anger and demands for vengeance. That’s more than observing; he’s truly disappointed. Oh, well. C’est la vie.

Me complain. Actually, I really am observing the extraordinary level of meatheadedness from yourself. Of course, being the pansy you are, what else can I expect from someone who likely believed that a 77 day election was a good idea.

Can’t let all them coloureds in – that would ruin are Christian-like purity, y’all.

He’s witnessing moral and ethical ambiguity – the result of a generation of dissolute socialism.
commented 2015-11-16 00:40:11 -0500
Brad you are here complaining all the time, and he is observing you fool.
commented 2015-11-15 23:28:40 -0500
So, Ezra goes to Paris…and complains?

This may very well be Canada in the next few years

No fire left in the French – Emperor Napoleon would be ashamed of the French – I simply pity them.

And yet – perhaps there is hope – let’s give their government a few days to get a mean, lean – “clean the bastards out of France” plan in hand.

A clean sweep from border to border – drop them all in Libya and let them try to cross the Med again. Sinking all the boats as they cross will stop the flow in a very short period of time.

The response needs to be harsher than the actual attack for the enemy to believe you mean business.

Anything less simply means more of the same.

Socialism and left leaning governments take the fire out of the people.

The outrage will fizzle like a 5 day old news story.

A common thread in all the posts, lack of patriotism and national pride – the first fruits of socialism, doped and dumbed down populace is part of the indoctrination (remember China’s populace were busy smoking opium when the commies came and marched all over them). And yes we are partway to becoming zombiefied here in Canada but surely we’re not going to give up that easily ?
commented 2015-11-15 21:38:57 -0500
Socialists. They have always been cowards, and will not stand up against the terrorists. More people will die, more songs will then be sung, and dope will be smoked, and still nothing will happen. The terrorists know this, and are counting on the residence of France being sheeple, who are easily lead to the slaughter. It is in keeping with French tradition, just look at WW@ and the Vichi french. Sure they had a resistance, but most capitulated, just as they are now.

The mood of the people, is the direct result of years of Left Wing Government. The people have lost their spirit, this is what socialism dose to you. It is unfortunate that Canada is about to become the same as France, with Liberal brain washing, we too will become Zombies.

maybe when the muslim terrorists show up with captured tanks and start destroying the city they will wake up.

Reminds me of the naive, trusting and vacuous Eloi between the regular harvests of humans by the Morlocks.
