Canadian media declare Halloween costumes “racist.” But what’s their real agenda?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Toronto Star is furious:

"Racist Halloween costumes still abound in Toronto stores”

We have terrorists in Canada, open borders, a finance minister hiding his secret assets — and the Star has found a worthy subject of investigation: a Halloween costume called “Dream Catcher Cutie.”

But if you were racist against Indians, you wouldn’t want to dress up as a beautiful Indian princess. It makes no sense.

Half-way through this breathless article, they sort of admit: it’s not really racist at all.

So what’s the problem here again?

It's that the outrage industry needs something new to be outraged about. 

The CBC is all over this “news,” too:

"What not to wear: Poster campaign highlights offensive Halloween costumes”

So one branch of the state — the state broadcaster — is backing up what another government agency, a Canadian university, is doing.

The Globe and Mail doesn’t want to be left out:

“What not to wear: Ontario school board targets offensive Halloween costumes”

Costumes like… “terrorist.” No, don’t stereotype terrorists — they’re people too!

But it’s easier for a school board to focus on this than to, say, focus on spelling tests or the times tables, isn’t it?

And it’s easier for a scolding journalist at the CBC to scream at everyone instead of looking at the flaws in their own rotting organization...

NEXT: Candice Malcolm joins me to talk about her exclusive front page story in the Sun today: 

Morneau Shepell — the firm founded by the father of Finance Minister Bill Morneau — has a contract with the Bank of Canada worth over $8 million.

THEN: Sheila Gunn Reid will be returning to the UN Climate Change Conference this year, this time in Bonn, Germany.

The Rebel will do what we did last year:

Pulling back the curtain on the virtue-signally globalist elites, and bringing you stories no one else will report.

FINALLY: I read your messages to me!

Just ban hallowed eve. It’s a pagan ritual. If my 12 yr old decides to go t or t against wishes, which I doubt he will, he’ll wear a garbage bag with a slit for the eyes. People can guess what he is.
A ghost but the dark kind

Watching the opening monologue followed by Ms. Malcolm on More-Now’s hypocrisy, I could not help but think of The Star’s column supporting Baby Doc’s crocodile tears over Gord Downie’s death.

First off, I agree it is sad someone dies at 53, a relatively young age.

However, Baby Doc cried, first, to make Downie’s death about Baby Doc and, second, to deflect the MSM puppy dogs from More-Now’s hypocrisy. The Star, being the loyal lap dogs, went with it. Laziness defined.

Only other thought, it would be nice if Baby Doc shed some of those tears over the Canadians he and More-Now are driving to poverty.

The war on Halloween is the movement by leftist regressives to turn children into social justice warriors, children are not allowed to be children anymore. It’s a manufactured first world problem, and, don’t forget, the insidious way social marxism works is to dismantle traditions of the West & throw a lot of “white guilt” tactics into the mix. It’s dishonest and should be ignored.

Congratulations Candice, excellent scoop. Morneau should be fired, and I believe the RCMP should investigate as the Ethics Commissioner seems out of her depth. Trudeau certainly won’t take the correct course on this, as, he keeps other Ministers with real problems exactly where he put them! Corruption and lies is the Trudeau way.

Sheila, please pack some disguises when you attend the next Climate Change Cult gathering in Bonn.
I will definitely chip in toward this trip to report on the utter hypocrisy of these globalists!

Excellent promo for Tommy Robinson’s new show.

This holloween I was going to go as a social justice warrior but I found it impossible to get my head up my butt, so I just went door to door as a Liberal taxing everything they gave out while virtue posing.

I love seeing people dress up as Santa on Halloween.

One of the 6 year-olds in our family went out last Halloween as an “Indian princess.” We haven’t informed her yet that she was being racist. Apparently she took a fancy to a beautiful girl in a Disney movie and since she has brownish skin too, being half Thai, she wanted to be that character. So sad as not too long from now, she’ll understand how people try to take joy out of life.

… Harold: Exactly.
… What if someone dressed in a kilt and bagpipes, or Austrian Leiderhosen? That wouldn’t be considered “racist”.
… As always, those who cry “racist”the loudest are the true racists.

Stop dressing like a normal average typical Canadian. That’s also culturally appropriating my Canadianism, and I find that very offensive!
