The anonymous, U.S-based hate group Sleeping Giants was set up to get companies to stop advertising on the conservative news site Breitbart.com.
Sleeping Giants invites bullies to take screenshots of ads on Breitbart.com, tweet them to the advertiser, and bully them into quitting doing business with the site.
It’s like a protection racket. And it’s all anonymous, with dark money behind it. George Soros? The Saudis? Who knows?
But now this anonymous troll war has come to Canada. And, of course, they’re targeting us.
Yes, TheRebel.media displays some tiny ads, but they’re served up automatically by YouTube and Google based on other sites you’ve visited. We don’t choose these ads.
So the Sleeping Giants boycott doesn’t really make sense.
But the National Post tried to make it into something.
They called up one of the companies listed by Sleeping Giant, the famous ski resort in B.C. called Whistler Blackcomb. You know it’s nice, because Justin Trudeau goes there. But so does anyone from B.C., Alberta, across the country and even from other countries. People of every political stripe, who just love skiing. Skiing has nothing to do with politics.
Except that’s not what Whistler Blackcomb told the National Post. They confirmed that they were going to ban their ads from appearing on TheRebel.media.
Now, I say again:
Whistler Blackcomb does not have an ad contract with us.
Their ad only shows up if someone who is really interested in skiing comes to our site. The total amount of money we have made from those Whistler Blackcomb ads is less than one dollar.
In other words: Whistler Blackcomb is literally boycotting Rebel viewers. They refuse to show their ads to our 700,000+ subscribers. They don’t like our kind.
So if Whistler Blackcomb doesn’t want to do business with Canadian conservatives, Canadian conservatives might want to repay the favour…
Tell Whistler Blackcomb themselves what you think:

NEXT: Our Alberta Bureau Chief, Sheila Gunn Reid, reported a story yesterday that the rest of the media is trying to ignore:
The fights between Syrian "refugees" and Canadian kids at an Alberta school.
Tonight we talk about her plan to continue covering this story, through Freedom of Information requests and tips from parents.
THEN: Daniel Ghasem Akbari of the Center for Sharia Studies joins me to talk about the Islamic terrorist attack in Manchester, and the aftermath.
