Doug Ford and Jason Kenney throw conservatives under the bus

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Saturday, the Ontario Liberals published comments by Doug Ford’s star candidate, Tanya Granic Allen.

Doug Ford took her support when he needed it. She endorsed him for leader after she dropped off the ballot, bringing with her thousands of socially conservative voters.

But on the weekend, Ford sacked her within hours, and appointed the second-place PC candidate in her riding.

Granic Allen said she didn’t like to see niqabs — the full face-obscuring Muslim veil — and said they reminded her of ninjas. But that’s what that looks like — and it’s un-Canadian.

And eighteen years ago, she referred to abortion as a kind of Holocaust. That’s dramatic language, but there’s a truth to it — a hundred thousands babies a year are aborted in Canada.

She did talk about radical sex ed targeting very young kids. It wasn't the most polished or nuanced presentation. But seriously — you’re sacking a star candidate over that?

That’s Ontario. And over the weekend, Jason Kenney had a huge convention for the UCP — that’s the United Conservative Party in Alberta.

Jason Kenney has been saying for months that he was going to let the people make the policy. He posted this "Grassroots Guarantee" on his website.

But at their convention, 57 per cent of the thousands of delegates there voted for this:

"The United Conservative Party believes that the Government of Alberta should… reinstate parental opt-in consent for any subjects of a religious or sexual nature, including enrollment in extracurricular activities/clubs or distribution of any instructional materials/resources related to these topics. Rationale: Respects and affirms parental primacy and authority regarding the educational material presented to their children.”

Seems pretty normal. The only reason it’s an issue is that the NDP has recently changed that, and forbidden parents from knowing. The NDP, like all socialists, truly thinks the child is the property of the state. Normal parents disagree.

And now, Jason Kenney, he who said he deeply believes in a grassroots policy process — he says he’s not going to be bound by this resolution.

Now when you go to that "Grassroots Guarantee" on Kenny's website, it's been deleted.

Both men are listening to their leftist critics, not their own consciences or their own party.

It is our job at The Rebel to push back against this, because no other media will.

We want Ford and Kenney to win.

But we want them to win as conservatives, and we want them to grow a backbone, and to treat the media party with the disrespect it deserves — rather than treat party members with the disrespect they don’t deserve.

NEXT: David Menzies joins me to talk more about Ford's decision to fire Tanya Granic Allen.

THEN: Climate Depot president Marc Morano and I discuss a new study showing that climate change skeptics "engage in more econ-friendly behaviour" than alarmists.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Max Bernier should pick up TGA.
She would make a great addition to his party.!!!

Please support Derek Fildebrand in his effort to bring sanity into office and prosperity back to the province through responsible governing as well as repealing things like the carbon tax, transfer payments and more Alberta and less Ottawa.!!

As I watch the conservative leadership, both provincial and federal, I see a pattern. There appears to be a conviction inside the parties that Canada is predominantly liberal and so leaders must bow to this view when confronting divisive issues, especially social issues. They seem to allow the liberal biases to define the political landscape and then try to appease it while remaining conservative. I don’t know that this actually works and it appears to be weak since it is reactive rather than proactive.
commented 2018-05-10 09:04:52 -0400
Ezra’s statement really confuses me…he said he wants to be clear, that he wants Doug Ford to win; but then, in the very same breath, he goes on to say that he doesn’t want, what he describes as a 50% Doug Ford, to win.

So I guess he is saying that, in the real world that we are currently, actually living in, he doesn’t want Doug Ford to win.

So, of the contenders who are running, who would he rather have as Premier?

“better to be dead than to be a slave to Islam once they rule Canada.” – ’Jack Carter" (not White)

You’ll find out, ‘Jack’. And when you do, remember this conversation and which side you were on.

Your ilk will be cursed by the subjugated dhimi’s (future formerly free people enslaved by Sharia).

And rightly so. You were warned, but you were, let’s face it, just too obtuse and stupid to wise up.

Jack Carter, it’s no wonder you’re so confused. You do not even comprehend the fundamentals of the political spectrum. Far Left = Total Government, and Far Right = No Government. From LEFT to RIGHT, this is the spectrum:
Far Left = Total Government: Communism – Socialism – Liberalism- CENTRE – Conservatism – Libertarian – No Government = Far Right.
Social Conservatives are CENTER-Right. They believe in free market economy, private property, individual freedoms, limited government power, and a generous social safety net. It is ideologically impossible to have an “extreme right wing” Conservative, or government. “Extreme Right Wing” = NO GOVERNMENT, and has never existed in human history, even at the tribal level. Human beings have always organized themselves politically.

Massive abortion rates + massive Sharia immigration + massive Sharia fertility + time = Sharia Canada.

Think about it.

“the notion of a Sharia takeover is quite frankly laughable and ridiculous.” – ‘Jack White’


The fact is, it is already operating in Canadian Muslim communities and families. Ask the “sisters upstairs”, to quote your fearless leader Socks Clown. Do you think any one of them would dare sit with the men?

No doubt, just as with your liberal dimwit ilk here today, ignorant morons in all 57 countries that were majority-taken over by Sharia over the last 1400 years thought and said the same kinds of denial drivel that your ilk is thinking and saying today in Canada and other Western countries that have been targeted for takeover.

You aren’t capable of facing the reality of what is happening in the West, including Canada, today. That’s why, instead of fighting to save the culture that gave you freedom, you’re ignorantly aiding its destruction.

Your type is never able to see more than a month into the future, never able to see where a massive trend is logically leading, and never has been able to. That’s why those countries today are Sharia hellholes where women are chattel and men murder one another en mass. You think your country is immune, just as they did.

Blind fools, every one of you. Not one of you are worthy of the legacy of Western freedom in Canada.

“Trudeau Government Busted Spreading Fake Stats On Illegal Border Crosser Rejections …They tried claiming 90% Nigerian ‘asylum’ claimants were being rejected.”

" Almost half of Canadians want refugees illegally crossing into Canada deported: Poll … Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as their American neighbors, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9.

Social conservative voters are now agonizing over what they should do, given Kenney’s and Ford’s ‘up-yours’ attitudes toward us. I think there is only one way to deal with this situation. We don’t have enough votes to form social conservative governments, as liberals here have been kind enough to point out. But there is a way to overcome this problem. Don’t split the conservative vote province-wide. That is a mistake. It results in Liberal or NDP victories, to the detriment of the whole country. But what if we vote CHP in certain select ridings:

Conservatives in heavily Christian ridings should vote Christian Heritage Party (CHP) to form rump parties that could hold the balance of power in legislatures and Parliament and force Conservatives parties to enact their social conservative platforms, if they want to gain power or stay there. This is the current situation in Britain, where a rump social conservative party is propping up the Conservatives on conditions they dictate.

I have thought long and hard about this, and this is the ONLY strategy that I believe will give social conservatives real power to change Canada and its provinces for the better. There is no other way. VOTE CHP!

Coren has indeed morphed into a liberal since he was on SNN. That is obvious if you read the article you linked earlier. It’s what happens when a conservative (Preston Manning comes to mind) grows weary of the battle and wants to ‘fit in’ with the morally corrupt, twisted society he/she lives in. Sad to see but true.

You and Andrew Stephenson will never understand or perceive the truth of Canada’s coming Sharia takeover until the bombs are going off or the massacres are happening at least once a month in every major city. That won’t be for some time yet, but it is coming. I give it ten years if Socks Clown isn’t thrown out next time.

The inability to see what is coming is a peculiarly leftist affliction, grounded in a fixation on the present to the exclusion of both the past and the future. You don’t know history and so you can’t perceive the future based on current trends and how such trends in the past worked out. For example, if I were to say to you, “How did Anatolia become 99% Muslim?”, you would probably respond, “What is Anatolia?” Not that you will admit that, of course. But anyway, Anatolia was the Christian country that later became present-day Turkey. It was gradually invaded, occupied and eventually dominated by Turkish Muslims from the Caspian Sea area who, when their numbers were large enough, began running it on Sharia law, which subjugated all non-Muslims by Sharia subjugation laws designed to gradually eliminate non-Muslims. Today that project is 99% complete. That is pretty much the story of Islamic conquest in all 57 current Muslim majority countries worldwide, all of which were non-Muslim to begin with. In Canada it has just begun, but already we are seeing the first signs of the trend toward acceptance of Islamic culture here, i.e. Sharia law operating underground, for example with FGM being practiced in contravention of Canadian law. It won’t affect ‘infidels’ until the 10% has been reached, in about 10 years if Socks Clown is still PM. If I were you, I’d be finding out what Sharia will mean for you then. And I wouldn’t rely on Muslim sources to get the info from, if you want to know the truth. Do you? I doubt it. You might have to start thinking about what an ignorant fool you have been until now, and what options are available to you and your children if you don’t want to become Muslims. Of course, if you don’t mind your daughters undergoing FGM, you could always convert, eh? Sure, join up and then you can impose Sharia on others as well, which will mean helping to stomp out liberalism. Won’t that be fun?

Allan Peterson,

I sleep just fine, because I am reasonable and rational and don’t buy into hyperbole, fear mongering, conspiracy theories and agenda.

I promise you that the Canada you know and love will still be standing in another 4 years and won’t be under Islamic control.

Right. And I said it wouldn’t be in four years but it is going to happen when islam reaches the 10 % point as Bravo Zulu and many others have affirmed. Many being ex-mulims. A cursory look at the news in the other countries they have invaded would confirm this for anyone but a lefty with his head stuck firmly in the sand. Sweden, France, Belgium, England, Holland and others are well on their way to becoming s***holes. Canada is just further down the same track.

The Canada I knew and loved is on its way out and has been since St Pierre was at the helm and started all the multi-culti nonsense. My kingdom for a true conservative.

Allan Peterson,

I guess the point which someone else acknowledged as well is that Coren is a conservative – hence being hired by conservative Sun News, but some of his views have changed now.

Indeed. His views have changed to the point where he isn’t a conservative any more.

“Your zero knowledge about Jihadi violence is stunning, I suggest a trip for you to a no go zone in Europe to find out first hand how Jihadi violence is all about numbers. "

Have been. Kinda dodgy, but not nearly as bad as the paranoids would have you think. We have so much “Jihadi” violence that the anti-Muslim brigade has to fabricate massive conspiracies to attribute unrelated events, so they have something to complain about.

Ford welcomes Lawton, despite Lawton’s former comments etc., but he fires Tanya Granic Allen?

You’re right, Alfie Evans was murdered.
Unfortunately, that’s what euthanasia is, only people, in their misguided compassion, think it is humane.

As I heard this evening, one can imagine those who choose assisted suicide, the last act that person makes is murder. Imagine.

Jack Carter said, “Speaking about curse words, did you watch Ezra’s show where he defended the use of curse words and acknowledged why intelligent people use such words?”

Yes, however your use of curse words are not used for emphasis as Ezra suggested is an appropriate use of curse words. You use it for insulting people in a vile and derogatory way.

Wee Jack off….it is abundantly clear that you dont know the difference between a traditional/classical liberal and these leftist regressive globalist parasites that are calling themselves liberals. It is also crystal clear that you subscribe to these like minded sociopaths mindset and policies. With that said, it says everything about you…’re a leftist regressive fucktard that believes itself to be better than all that appose your warped view of reality.
