A famous BC ski resort is boycotting The Rebel. See how we’re responding.

Rebel Staff

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.

To be honest, we don’t get a lot of money from ads; we are built on your subscription fees, and crowdfunding.

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.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

If Britain can’t get its act together enough to do something when Lybians bomb children, they are toast. Cultural Marxism has done Britain in, with a little help from Islam. It kind of makes you glad that people don’t live forever because maybe we wouldn’t want to be around to witness what comes next.

Marxist and Muslims have a lot in common, they turn up everywhere and the aim of the Dogma that each follows have a common goal. They both believe in silencing those that do not think the same as they do. Whistler and Alberta are good examples of this happening.

As for the UK, they have a big battle in the offing but they have had big battles before and survived. Of course their last big battle would have turned out differently had it not been for Canada the USA, Australia and New Zealand plus others.

It is possible that when the Brexit negotiations start to get rough, things could get nasty, what with the Muslim controlled UN, the new Marxist leader of France plus whoever will be the new leader of Germany. `War is not out of the realms of reality.
If this were to happen, the Enemy would have to stand up to the USA, who already has half of its Air Force stationed in Britain.
I would like to think that they would have Canada with them but alas this is unlikely this time around. Not because of Canadians but because of the Muslim who is their Dictator, Justin Trudeau. This individual is more interested in the demise of Canadians than fighting for Canada’s Best Friend

Soros is doing the same thing in the U.S. through community group called “Center for Popular Democracy” that he is supplying money to, this group is going after some large corporations such as Disney and approx. 10 others trying to intimidate them.

More bullying tactics from the craven left?! Imagine my shock! Of course this tactic cuts both ways. I shan’t be spending a dime in Whistler this year. Or any other year if they are that spineless.

The red flag went up for me on the cell phone video. you see nothing . you see only legs and no fighting. You hear a lot of voices and that is all. The person filming was far enough away to film this so called scuffle and see the fight ,If there really was one. I would be very careful not to be drawn into this. I think this is a fabricated lie.

Whistler Blackcomb, your comment to the National Post is ridiculous. Corporate cowards bending over for anonymous cowards…. let’s see how this backfires on your bottom line!
I will gladly sign the petition.
Oh Sarah Morton, I think you need to update your resume and start networking for a new job!

Ezra, great interview with Daniel Akbari. I look forward to future interviews. I will look for copies of his books.

Former muslim Brother Rachid, gave an excellent commentary directed at Obama in 2014

Sheila Gunn Reid, I appreciate your work with the Rebel. Canadian schools, their Boards, the media and the government is keeping silent on the multitude of problems that came with the Syrian refugees; and what impact this has on the rest of the student body & faculty. Massive cover-up from east to west.

Ezra, I don’t think you lost the fire in your belly! Don’t change a thing!

Whistler will potentially lose more business than just the Rebel members, because they have families and friends too. I think this was a favour to junior and Soros, who are likely the ones who started this attack on the Rebel, and its members. We still have the power to cripple their business, and to school this shortsighted PR hack.

These ski resorts are “MANAGING NATURE” or contributing to global warming by moving natural snow from one place to another, thereby altering the universe. Perhaps we should boycott them based on thier decimation of nature, rather than thier capitalist motives to suck every dollar out of the mountain.

Yeah kiss ass to anonymous trolls, great for business. Then wonder why you are no longer respected.

Attacking the sponsors of conservative programs is the new weapon of the left. Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity both know how effective left wing smear campaigns can be in driving corporate advertisers away. Conservatives will have to develop an effective response. Perhaps you petition will work if enough people sign. Good luck.
