SHOCKING audio: University star chamber bullies student over “controversial” video

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Dr. Jordan PetersonCanada's most famous professor, refuses to use made up politically correct language like "zhee" and "zher" instead of "he" and "her."

His university's administration pounced on him but, for the first time in memory, a professor fought back, and won.

Anyway, a graduate student and teaching assistant at Wilfrid Laurier University, Lindsay Shepherd, recently showed a clip of Peterson in class. Not to advocate for him, but to show his point of view.

(The clip was from a TV Ontario show called The Agenda with Steve Paikin. Which is about as mild as TV gets in Canada.)

But Lindsay was summoned to a university kangaroo court where she was grilled by academics who literally compared showing that video to showing one of Hitler. They called it an act of "violence."

The administrators never showed Lindsay the complaint against her or told her who made it.

Some audio of this interrogation has been leaked to Global News. Tonight I'll play it for you.

It's amazing, shocking and infuriating.

I reached out to Lindsay and said we’d be happy to crowdfund a lawyer for her. She wrote back declining — I think maybe she was worried about taking help from us. Fine — I hope she reconsiders.

But we’ve launched a petition too, that you can sign at SaveLindsay.com.

We’ll deliver it to Wilfrid Laurier, telling them to dismiss the Orwellian complaint against Lindsay Shepherd, apologize to her, and reaffirm its commitment to academic freedom.

Of course they won’t.They’re insane. You can’t tell insane people to stop being insane.

This petition isn’t for them; it’s for us.

To show that we’re not part of that. We just won’t be.

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Columnist David Goldman and I discuss what he calls "Trump's unsung success in the Middle East;" then Robert Spencer joins me to talk about his provocative new book, Confessions of an Islamophobe.

Boy would I love to take those University “administrators” out to the woodshed and demonstrate what VIOLENCE actually is.

Frank Hohimer yeah whatever you say. How many times will you be saying it in the future? Now go back to your childish MSM who need forced payments from taxpayers. You know none of them would last if people had to CHOOSE to support them LMAO!

Yeah, like something momentous and nasty is just around the corner, and it’s worse than we expect…

I don’t know Dan, but I feel the same way. Sick in the pit of my stomach.

So the left is throwing away ‘the body’ now – when it suits them…where’s Lindsay Shepherd’s writ of habeas corpus!
Those lefty freak-a-zoids running universities into the sewer certainly need some ‘gender-based-violence’ committed on their depraved and delusional persons…whether it helps or not!
Every day as I sit here and watch Ezra, Sheila, Chris and David, et al, air the insanity of the left I feel like someone slipped me an hallucinogen – the unreality of the weirdness and destruction and the daily escalation of this lefty insanity boggles the mind.
The worst thing is nothing is being done about it – I mean nothing of the little being DONE about it is effective, it’s being ignored or goes unseen. A juggernaut rolling over us, unopposed.
How can so many people be so blind – and at their own peril?

It’s for sure we mere mortals don’t have all the information but nothing good can come of this in my view. The Iron Dome is now installed in the centre of Israel. This us a stab in the back.

Muta Ween, excellant reminder about the order of things.
As for the David Goldman interview why pray tell, after this new found unity between the US, Russia and China, was Iran allowed a new forward position within 10k’s of Israel after Netanyahu and Putin agreed to 40 or 50k’s?

Krispy Larue—Immigration is like taxes; once they are in, you can’t get rid of them.
Wait until the Wall gets started, millions of Mexicans will want Canada’s generosity, however they have an interest in working, not like the Haitians whose claim to fame is they can out breed even the Muslims.

We should point out that the majority of what is written on this site and TheRebel itself are actually not rebelling against anything. We in fact are the defenders of the established and successful culture and nation that is under attack from these Socialist Marxist Liberals. Add Islamist into the mix which is a poisonous brew indeed. They are the miscreants.They are the revolutionaries.
commented 2017-11-21 08:34:54 -0500
Krispy had news numbers wise it is more like 3 million Central Americans Canada will be receiving once they figure out where Roxham is.
I do not see our current Gov making any changes to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act…..And why would they its always been the Liberal way “Visa for Votes” even at the cost of Canadian Sovereignity, Security and Finical ruin.

Off-topic. We’re in for a sh/tstorm at the border…

Breaking:
Trump administration ending temporary permits for almost 60,000 Haitians – The Boston Globe
“The Trump administration is ending a humanitarian program that has allowed some 59,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States since an earthquake ravaged their country in 2010…”

Also- 5,000 Nicaraguans lose protection, 212,000 Salvadorans as well in March; 86,000 Hondurans deferred:
“The Trump administration said Monday it will end a special program that for years has protected more than 5,000 Nicaraguans against deportation

By far the largest number, 212,000, are from El Salvador; their protections expire in March. In all, about 325,000 residents from 10 countries, including Haiti, Syria, Somalia and Nepal, are protected under the program.”

So we now have people that identify as gender fluid (a mix of boy and girl) and shifts back and forth over time or under different situations. When an individual is born and the birth registration is completed they are normally assigned a gender in accordance with their genitalia. Now what do these gender fluid individuals do when they register for school, apply for a drivers licence or apply for a passport. Some countries are not going to put up with this politically correct identity bullshit where a person gets on a flight as a man and returns as a woman. These gender confused people are being brain washed and used by the evil globalists who are turning this into a law that has some of the same tenets as M-103 anti islamophobia motion. The opponent of Dr Peterson on the TV Ontario debate Nicholas Matte sounded like he did some helium sucking prior to the show.

Hey Frank you fuck wad, how about you do every sane thinking person this site a favour….. why don’t YOU have nothing to do with the Rebel. Please please go play on the freeway, or at the very least, go get lost in a forest for a month or two. In other words, fuck off and die you leftist regressive piece of dog excriment.
You would be right at home with those sociopaths at Laurier.
Only a sick minded parasite would condemn a organization for wanting to help someone for wrongful persecution, even when their fundamental views may differ. It says everything about you…..you parasitic puke. You’re not well in the head, you’re pathetic in you’re irrational views on right and wrong. In fact it’s down right sad.

Last month, Nathan Rambukkana was on a panel of academics at a conference in Estonia discussing communication through dick pics. But @jordanbpeterson threatens students’ safety…

Say what?

Is this the crap that is going on in the universities, why would any parents want to send their kids to this sham university

That is good news Ron. Merkel deserves to be run off for what she has started in Europe.

Rebelation, the NP article was an interesting take by someone who is clearly from the left but not so far left that she can’t see at least some of what’s happening here.
Jen Gerson seems to be in a bit of a snit, insulting and dismissive of Prof. Peterson but she writes, “Nobody wanted Jordan Peterson to be right.” The comments at the bottom were pretty well unanimous. People have had enough. Jen Gerson writes, “Shepherd’s antagonists aren’t trying to argue that her vision of a university’s role is wrong — they know they can’t. Instead, they are trying to impose an incongruent set of values by force”

On that point (and a few others) she is spot on.
Nice pic of the head interrogator, Nathan Rambukkana, Assistant Professor, Communication Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University. He should be dumped. Now more than ever is Peterson’s idea of a website to grade the leanings of a University, the course material they offer, and the academics who teach them, been a better idea. Parents need to know what they are getting into.

Hey Frank, yeah, so what?
commented 2017-11-21 02:04:35 -0500
Off subject but great news for the Center and Right. MERKEL IS IN TROUBLE, she can’t get enough support to run the Government . The C-Right Parties are circling around her as we speak, the CBC is crying. The German People are looking at Australia’s triumph and want what they see.
Trudeau may be left standing alone with his ridiculous policies.

So this is a petition that Ezra knows will fail, but he is still going forward with it?

Sounds like there is some truth to what Caolan Robertson said about the rebel collecting e-mail addresses through all the petitions.
commented 2017-11-21 01:51:57 -0500
James Hala I agree the Universities that are proceeding with this indoctrination and censorship should be continually ridiculed. I don’t want one penny of taxpayer money supporting this. It will be the ruin of our society.
Rebelation, indeed, the limit will be reached. People won’t keep putting up with it.

liza Rosie,

It isn’t what I think. It’s reality. Something that you are clueless about.

Drew Wakariuk,

You do realize that The Rebel isn’t doing that well anymore per every online ranking sounce. The Rebel lost their biggest stars in Gavin and Faith (most viewed content) and no one cares about the new shows outside of die hards like you that thought Sun News Network was classy and reputable news.

The Rebel has been on a huge decline in traffic and views, so yes – they will be done for if this continues and Ezra can’t turn things around to how they were before.
commented 2017-11-21 01:40:45 -0500
Do you think so Frank, oh my!
Nobody cares.
commented 2017-11-21 01:32:51 -0500
Rebelation Rebelation,

The Rebel should just cover the news and not burn every bridge around them in the process to the point that no one wants to be associated with The Rebel, including the people who quit working for Ezra because The Rebel had become toxic.

Plenty of ways to run a media site. Ezra has been doing it wrong and has paid the price with half his audience bailing since August with even the Conservative Party treating The Rebel like it’s poison.
commented 2017-11-21 01:21:26 -0500
Frank Hohimer i thought you said the Rebel was done for? Yet here you are commenting, how can that be? And the true embarrassment is our Prime Minister the moronic buffoon.

Good to see Trump taking care of ISIS , something that Obama their useful idiot could never do.
commented 2017-11-21 01:12:44 -0500
Frank Hohimer i think you mean Canadaland when you say embarrassment. And as usual you deflect from the point that your left wing peers are censoring filth just like the coward you are.
