CBC hires actors to spout racism on Canadian streets — then blames Trump

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Tonight I’m talking about a recent segment on CBC’s show Marketplace, about a guy selling “white power” t-shirts on a Toronto street.

Except it wasn’t real.

The CBC paid an actor, using your tax dollars, to sell racist shirts (that you also paid for).

Marketplace used to uncover scams in business, like unscrupulous contractors, and bring them to justice. Now Marketplace is the one perpetrating scams.

And did you see how they conflate the slogan “Make Canada Great Again” with racism? That’s insane.

By the way: We at the Rebel registered that trademark a while ago, and sell “Make Canada Great Again” stuff. (Our trademark lawyer is sending the CBC a cease and desist letter.)

Canada is a great place, and so is the U.S. But that doesn’t fit the CBC’s agenda.

This segment aired on the day of Trump’s inauguration. Think about that.

Now Melanie Joly, Trudeau’s culture minister, wants a national crack-down on “fake news.” Except our Constitution doesn’t protect liberal speech, or fact-checked speech. It protects speech.

Citizens get to determine if they believe the National Enquirer or Marketplace or The Rebel. Not the government.

What do you think the odds are that Trudeau will come for us first...?

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson on new threats to freedom of speech; then Sheila Gunn Reid on our search for the leftist man who assaulted her at the Edmonton "Women's March."

Social experiment eh. My tax dollars paid for this crap.

Paul…..give us a break! The program is called MarketPlace. It’s been around for years and has never been satirical. But you know that don’t you.

If you go to the website for marketplace or saw the segment you would have known this was clearly a social experiment. Claiming it as false news is creating false news itself. My advice is do not listen the the CBC program “This is That” which is pure satire if you are unable to distinguish between things. I am guessing you never watched candid camera as a kid.

CBC will not be defunded but it will not be until trudeau is gone, but that definitely will be getting my vote, whatever conservative that promises to defund and sell that CRAP FAKE NEWS CBC. Prime Minister Harper should have, they crucified him. Without them he would be our P.M still.

You hear that Lefty chic – telling Sheila not to be angry? How twisted! How abnormal!
commented 2017-01-24 02:53:28 -0500
An additional point to my post. They also set a standard so high as to be un-achievable, just like they do to men in Family Court. And to hold someone accountable when they’re not even present?

Great show Ezra!

There’s got to be something illegal in what CBC is doing.

The police only need “reasonable grounds” to lay a charge, and they already have that in the video. They often lay charges with far less, particularly when a female files a complaint against an ex for example. And they can continue to investigate after the charge is laid should they need to. So don’t fall for the “we’re investigating” crap. DEMAND charges – NOW!!

Great interview with Gordon Peterson. We’re all struggling to identify their game. They’re employing a tactic of reverse-onus with a moving target, and it’s entrapment. Particularly when they dispense with men’s rea (intent to commit a crime).

Lefty’s love to “hi-jack” everything, including the meanings of words and phrases. They’ve changed “equality” as discussed. Watching The Agenda, some Lefty’s changed the intent of “mobility rights” from the “freedom to go where you want”, to “a right to free transit”.

Those leftists really believe that Trump is this massive bigot, who is rallying the neo nazis out to start a third world war.

Dion Bews – EH! – how far do ya think you can run?!? Us Rebels are everywhere – look me up – if you have any masculine balls left in that sorry body of yours. If we catch you hitting a woman – your ass is grass! You are just a NDPigger pussy Bully and – well you’ll find out how civilized people deal with barbaric behavior – don’t take this as a threat – but a promise in the way of decency. Your profile just has to include spousal abuse – should we ask your threatened wife??? … or your abused children – OH shit, I forgot, you ain’t got any balls.

I am starting to think that maybe we should not stop terrorists from coming here so fast, let them target Toronto and CBC outlets and such first. Sharia patrols can attack abortion clinics and beat up people at Pride for a while for all i care. Let the left have their damn utopia for a while, they deserve it.
commented 2017-01-24 01:51:31 -0500
Yeah CBC racism and hate are so rampant that you and the left have to make up fake incidents, and you still think you are fooling us?

Thank you, Rebel Media, for what you. Thank goodness that you came into existence. Your team is terrific.

hmmm…i wonder…is dion bews an associate of sid ryan?i seem to remember that pos manhandling a female Sun news reporter he didn’t agree with a few years back…

@ Edward

No, what I was meaning is that I think they would still attempt to devise speech restricting laws even knowing that it would be possible for those laws to be used against themselves because the judiciary is mostly populated by Liberals and SJW judges whom would rule in their favour should that law be used against them. So in reality I am agreeing with you in that not only have they seized the schools and media but also the federal bureaucracy, senate and the judiciary. We’re surrounded by creeps.

Good to Hear from Jordan Peterson again. I hope that can be a common occurrence. Also what good news to hear that so many students stand with him. Very encouraging.
commented 2017-01-24 00:31:36 -0500
I am glad you are taking this wanker to task Sheila. He deserves to be charged and have a record on his head. I hope people boycott his business. What a lousy hypocrite smacking a woman at a woman’s rally no less. Dion Bews is a snivelling coward. Sheila definitely needs security. Sad, that a female reporter needs security doing her job in Canada, just because she is a conservative.

It amazes me to no end the vapid and unthinking people who attend rallies for causes all their friends agree with and when someone shows up to either give them a platform to speak and or challenge their “cause” they have nothing to say about it. They stammer and look uncomfortable that anyone could ever question the cause, and then awkwardly stumble into a weak “well your just mean” or erupt into a tirade of violence like Dion Bews did. I’m glad we can hold those on the left responsible for their violent acts and am encouraged the Rebel helped identify the thug in order to have charges laid which will hopefully end with a permanent conviction for assault on his record. With Trump in for at least the next four years I think we need to be more mindful of the increased threat of leftist violence and false bigotry campaigns.

@peter Netterville I think you missed the point of my premise. These people sure take full use of their free speech and would be indignant if you tried to inhibit or restrict theirs. So where then does this confidence come that they think they can remove our most cherished basic human right? Many of these people are the product of our communist indoctrination compliments of our schools of “higher” education. The way they have seized the media and the schools has emboldened them to act as though their actions are going to have little to no legal consequence.

My dream is for the day when CBC no longer gets tax payer funding and is unable to compete thus being forced to close its doors because no one believes them and refuses to watch CBC news any longer.

ps: Canada was never great…..unless you lived in ON or QC.

What does ‘white pride world wide’ or’white power’ have to do with Trump? Nothing that’s what. Insisting that he is a racist does not make him one. The cbc should of course be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating this lie in an effort to convince Canadians that Trump is the R word.. Truly shameful. Their race baiting ways will come back to bite them. The cbc edit, distort and misrepresent what Trump says in their clip and every time they mention him. They are writing a very dangerous and misleading narrative and it doesn’t represent how most of us feel.
…and what on earth is wrong with “make Canada great again” ? Half of the country thinks Justin is taking us all to the poor house to live in a totalitarian nightmare and would like to make Canada great again, you know since it’s not anymore.

I detest that my tax dollars pay for these people to write such a destructive narrative. Those who hate Trump in Canada, because they have bought into the cbc narrative, are lazy low information sheep. The kind of people who are unable or unwilling to do their own homework.

Was Pravda ever this dishonest and manipulative? I doubt it. Pravda distorted and made stuff up but the CBC has gone beyond words and into Performance Propaganda.
What a lousy waste of our tax dollars.

Now that Donald Trump is POTUS and the Canadian public is becoming visibly mutinous over BS carbon taxes, Liberal corruption, and “national suicide by diversity”, the CBC has its marching orders (as Tator Tot’s propaganda arm) to drown out the dissenting voices – by any means fair or foul.

The smell of desperation from those trying to keep the lid on the pot and keep the plebs stupid and docile is becoming more rancid each day. Outlets like The Rebel must keep pushing on with the truth. Eventually the grifters, liars, and traitors will become unhinged enough to make a mistake that NOTHING can cover up.

Then, the average Joe will be looking for torches, pitchforks, and rope. And heads will roll.

Edward Jobin said, "No one would be attempting to devise speech restricting laws if they believed it could one day be used against them … "

I am not too sure that premise is fully supportable.

Bill exactly. And which liberal court, committee, judgement panel, commission or burocratic bs would be commissioned to decide for us all what will designated as fake news.

Trudeau is trying to make Pres.Trump angry. He’s like the community organizer that just left the white house.

Why didn’t CBC Marketplace just interview Hedy Fry , and she could repeat the racist situation in Prince George BC, where there are Burning Crosses as we speak.
commented 2017-01-23 22:55:24 -0500
Stephen Hicken I certainly hope your right because it’s pretty much all we have left. Even hardly any talk radio anymore which used to be owned by conservatives. Everything has become infected.

If the liberals crack down on “fake news” the amassed dossier on CBC/TorStar lies and disinformation would ensure that they are the first to go – but we know this is not how globalist authoritarians (They aren’t Liberals folks) play there game – there will be no equity or reason or fairness in a Liberal news censorship regime because there is no morality in their ideology.

If they take a run at the Rebel it will seal their political fate – NO Canadian can stand a bully and that is what Leftist governments are – bullies who want to silence dissent or opposing opinion. Basically soviet Cuban scum wrapped in a Canadian flag – they can’t resist the cowardly bully impulse.

One sight from the Trump Inauguration which did my heart good was the coverage of the color Guard parade, when the 4 MSM broadcast trucks went by the crowd unanimously booed them.
commented 2017-01-23 22:31:11 -0500
I think your site The Rebel is pretty much safe. Since your the only Conservative site in Canada Shutting you down would bring too much protesting toward the liberals. It would set a very dangerous precedent and show the Liberals were leaning toward an Autocratic State.
