Ezra Levant meets free speech warriors in Australia

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Right now, I’m in Sydney, Australia, meeting our new Rebel team. Australia, like Canada and the UK, really needs an alternative media outlet like ours, to bring them the other side of the story.

Like Canada, Australia is dealing with Islamification, the absorption of Muslim migrants, the environment and foreign funded extremist groups. One issue that kept coming up in our conversations was censorship.

You might recall that here in Canada, I was put through ringer by the Human Rights Commissions when I published the so-called "Mohammed cartoons." 

They have a similar institution in Australia, and their version of Section 13, the censorship provision we fought to abolish in Canada, is called Section 18C.

However, Section 18C actually bans words that are “offensive,” whatever that means.

Of course, it’s being used to silence legitimate political conversation.

Tonight, I talk to Australians who have been caught up in Section 18C, and are fighting back:

Student Calum Thwaites; Lorraine Finlay, lecturer at the Murdoch University School of Law; and Rory Bromfield, director of the Freedom Association.

SJW’s everywhere. Solutions in search of problems. Empty vessels in search of meaning.

Australia has some of the most over the top censorship rules. Just look at what they do to video games.

Is Ezra going to visit New Zealand?

Appreciated Lorraine Finlay and her well articulated explanation of the situation in Australia. Very much comes across as Australia’s equivalent to ‘Jordan Peterson’.

Good show, Ezra!
It’s hard to believe that the “snowflakes” could exist in Australia – being as warm as it is. Poor bastards must be offended by the heat! Sure hope that global warming happens soon in Canada – so the snowflakes (Libtards) all melt!!
The Rebel kicks ass!

Great show Ezra. Bonding with Free Speechers across the globe and fighting this communist onslaught on all fronts is a great idea and a worthy cause.

I think ppl are missing the big picture. Communists hated unions, until they were on their death-bed after WWII – at which point they did an about face and joined with the unions. Being forced to join a union is the key problem. It’s what needs to be fought against first and foremost. Students are forced to sign a union contract or agreement before they can attend. This puts the communists in charge. If you don’t want them in charge, don’t sign the agreement. Fight against this Forced sign-up. THAT, is “striking at the heart”, and how you win. You don’t need rules at school, the criminal code and civil codes apply inside every building in the country, not just out on the streets.

In short, a push against forced union sign-up is the key!!

- Socialist / globalist hacks are forever trying to find ways to take away our basic human rights & freedoms in the name of saving us from ourselves.

- Seems Australia isn’t so much unlike Canada. Marxist teachers indoctrinate students – students become activists – education fails – graduates end up with massive debt & worthless diplomas in most cases.

- One of the keys to success is to find a need & fill it. The Rebel is doing that now throughout much of the West. It’s good to see.

Jesus Christ would have a hard time in this society. He offended the scholars. But they wouldn’t crucify Him, just tie Him up in litigation. Keep praying for peace

Ezra, I’m jealous!

Of all the places you have been, Auzzieland is where I would love to visit.
