Leftist Jews demand more censorship — Here's what will happen if they get their way

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In 2006, I republished the Danish cartoons of Mohammed in my old magazine, the Western Standard — and was hauled before the Alberta Human Rights Commission after some Muslims complained.

Shortly thereafter, Mark Steyn published a cover story in Maclean’s called "The Future Belongs to Islam." Muslim extremists hauled him before three different Canadian Human Rights Commissions.

The country (and the rest of the world) was so appalled by these two cases that, in 2013, Parliament repealed Section 13, the censorship provision of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

Well, that was five years ago. The alliance between the cultural Marxists and Islamic fascists has only grown, and colonized academia and the Liberal Party.

Last month, we learned that Trudeau’s justice minister is now contemplating re-enacting Section 13.

Which brings me to the stupidity of the day: It’s a story from the Canadian Jewish News:


Mark Freiman told CJN:

“Hate speech is on the rise. Hate speech is a form of poison. We regulate poison and all kinds of speech that carries harm. This is the kind of speech that carries danger,” he said.

"Freiman, who also served as the president of the now-defunct Canadian Jewish Congress, made his views known in a panel discussion that looked at the future of Canadian law in the absence of Sec. 13.”

Here’s my point: It’s 2018. The Muslim population of Canada is, what, 1.5 million? And it’s young and aggressive and confident.

Canada’s Jews? About 350,000 of them. Low birthrate. High intermarriage. Very few are actually religious. To many Jews, being Jewish is a bit like a club, maybe once a year you go to a synagogue. It’s a loose affiliation, with no enduring or transcendent meaning.

Imagine, then, that an aging, out of date Jewish ethno-politician like Mark Freiman would actually get his way and bring back “hate speech” laws.

Who do you think would use those laws?

And who do you think they would be used against...?

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Sheila Gunn Reid and I look back at censorship directed at The Rebel, and what we might have to deal with in the future; then Sun columnist Candice Malcolm whipped Canada's elites into a twist for criticizing the carbon tax.

Canadian Press photographer should’ve been charged with Attempting to Obstruct Justice, or Nuisance, or something!

So sue Butts Ezra! It would make an important statement and put you in the news – in a good way!!
commented 2018-02-21 07:57:21 -0500
Ezra, you and Candice fell into the Climate Hoax trap by referring to “CARBON Tax” and “CARBON Pricing”. It is like calling Water or H2O, Hydrogen. Please call what the Liberals will be taxing CO2 – the colourless, odourless trace gas with a miniscule concentration of .04%.

“You tube has now censored one of my favorite commentators from the U. K. Pat Condill. “. Pat Condell’s video’s are available on a few other sites (Pewtube, Liveleak and Bitchute). Example:

Liza, a study was done to see what the results of quota’s would be based on demographic representation. There would have been one native juror. But hat about others? Chinese? Ukrainian? Metis? Iranian? How about other ways than race? How many Sikhs? How may Atheists? Agnostics? Catholics? Muslims?
How about genders? H? B? T? G? L? ???

How fine do we want to slice this pie? Or- how many jurors do we want on a trial?
commented 2018-02-20 14:37:39 -0500
Janie Jones, yes Jody is a problem. I have heard lawyers interviewed who say she knows better than to be messing about with the judicial system this way.
People are picked randomly in the community to show up, then layers as was pointed out, from both sides, veto or accept the juror. If you put ‘quotas’ into it, it negates the ‘randomness’ of the process. Besides there were natives called in the Sask. case, they either didn’t show up for duty or were openly discussing how they would vote if chosen, so of course they were vetoed also.
There is no good reason for Jody Wilson-Raybould to be threatening to change the process. The government should keep their sticky hands out of it.

So what is her motive or is it just that this government will take every opportunity which presents itself to modify our laws and judicial processes to stack the deck against those they have decided they need to control?

I would like to see that clause taken OUT of our Charter.
The fight in America is that the Dems want the Constitution to be a ‘living’ document. Its not. It was written the way it was written and is meant to be respected AS it was written.
commented 2018-02-20 14:16:18 -0500
The new lib. demon is Jody Wilson-Raybould. Justice Minister. Looking to make a name for herself.
commented 2018-02-20 14:08:37 -0500
Liza, I agree. Our constitution is a joke. A paper tiger at best.

JC could be considered as an acronym for Justin Castro. It also could be for a man who died on a cross over 2000 years ago.

It seems to me that we have been duped into believing that the Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms was written to protect US from government. The very first ‘guarantee’ negates itself, just the same way that saying’ free speech — but’, will eliminate free speech.

Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:

Guarantee of Rights and Freedoms

Rights and freedoms in Canada:
1. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it SUBJECT ONLY TO SUCH REASONABLE LIMITS PRESCRIBED BY LAW AS CAN BE DEMONSTRABLY JUSTIFIED IN A FREE AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.

It says , yeah, you are entitled to everything listed here unless we change our minds and consequently the laws to accommodate that change. So basically we will still do what ever we see fit, and it may veto what was previously written.
Geez, it sounds like mo’s abrogated verses!

These freedoms only have strength while the laws back them up. If Justin gets away with amending and fabricating new laws, which override what is laid out in the Charter, then as they are listed, those rights and freedoms will be rendered meaningless and powerless. At least that is how it looks to me. Please tell me I’m wrong, I would so welcome it. It looks to me like,“thanks for nothing Pierre!” .

commented 2018-02-20 14:03:32 -0500
Ezra, I think you need to turn some this negative commentary against The Rebel into publicity paid for by the Great Leader. Run ads for a few days in some of the big papers across the country. Say something like, “Come and watch the media outlet that Justin Trudeau calls a Nazi magazine”. Or ,“Come and listen to the only journalist in the world who was not allowed into the Bonn Climate Conference”.

I think you would pick up some new viewers at not much cost to yourself. A couple of days should do it. Turn those lemons into lemonade!

- The Trudeau Liberals are weaponizing the government against the Canadian people & they’re getting help from leftists & Islamists.

- The whole man made global cooling/warming/climate change thing is a scam. The science behind it is pseudoscience – missing data, smearing of skeptics, calling for the jailing of skeptics, all projections based on climate models that have never been right. The solutions don’t match the problems they claim exist – financially punishing Western industry & giving the rest of the world (including every OPEC nation) a pass & causing the evil demon carbon levels to continue to rise.

- Funny how the NDP & Liberal reaction is to censor first & then deal with the pushback. The UN does the same thing. None of these crooks want debate or discussion on climate alarmism because they know how weak their positions are on this subject. The mainstream media in Canada has become just as fake as the mainstream media in the US.

Does anybody here really think that Justin Globalist and his Caliphate-Cabinet won’t force the return of Section 13 – or something worse, like the M 103 anti-free-speech-law, likely already written – on the collective backs of unindoctrinated and dissenting Canadians, with a bloody lash?
Remember, the left is where communism, socialism, fascism, Naziism, Islamism, totalitarianism and all the rest of the humanity crushing, blood-thirsty, murderous, thieving regimes come from…THE LEFT!
Why should Justin Castro and his fascist Globalist master’s agenda be any different?

You should read what Howard Galganov has to say about self-hating Jews, Judenrats, Kapos and other assorted leftie-Jews…

Terry Gain, every mosque is a hate distribution center, It starts with their hate for women at the front door. And to make sure they can keep preaching hate undisturbed 15 security cameras are present to keep prying eyes out. Of course this kind of hate speech behind closed doors is just fine.
commented 2018-02-20 10:40:01 -0500
Since the Koran is full of hate and mandates the killing of infidels is Freiman calling for a ban on the Koran and the outlawing of hate speech in Mosques and , if not, why not? Welcome to Canada, 1984 version, where some citizens are more equal than others.
commented 2018-02-20 10:13:13 -0500
EZRA , could you find out the process of how the collection of the carbon tax moneys makes the weather better and saves us from global warming? , maybe you could contact REX MURPHY , he’s the only c b c person I trust , and he could give you the explanation .
I have an idea, that it goes something like this .
Mckenna gives the money to Clair marten , the weather lady at c b c , she gives it to Mother Earth at those conferences every year , and then Mother Earth does some incantations in a European accent and makes it all better

Ya gotta love Junior, here is having the CRA auditing waitresses for every last dime and portraying small businessmen as fraud artists. Meanwhile in India our Dear Leader is on yet another all expense paid trip of a lifetime. Not bad work if you can get it.

Mark Freiman , like all lefties, uses language in a very slippery fashion. One of their favourite tactics is the fallacy of equivocation. Using a word in two different senses at the same time. Poison is used both literally and figuratively in his statement. If you don’t catch it- and most people don’t- it sounds reasonable. “Yeah, we do regulate poisons so we should regulate verbal poison as well”.

Except equating poison with words you don’t like is totally subjective. If you look up poison in a dictionary it will distinguish the two uses. One is denotative- his first use which is the literal meaning. The connotative is his second use of the word which is much looser and- as all leftists do- is a call to emotion and negativity. Be on the look out for the leftists use of logical fallacies.They are masters of it. IF we don’t learn to discern this we will be screwed. Call them out on it and put them in their place as liars and cheats.

For more on this distinction:

During the German Nazi regime, there was no freedom of the press, no free speech and no other political views were allowed.
This ended up in the loss of millions of people in a war and concentration camps.
When ANY government denies free speech then the citizens of that country have lost their freedoms.
Will Canadians lose their freedom?
Yes, if we continue to ignore what is happening on the federal and provincial levels.
What can be done?
Short of anarchy, a strong turn out of like minded freedom loving citizens at the polling stations.

This is a word of warning for all respondents on this rebel blog, Ted, Liza, John, Ron, James, Space moose, etc. Check out on your computer, section 13(1) of the Human Rights Commission. It was repealed in 2013, but now is being looked at by the libs. to resurrect it. If that happens, any negative thing said on here will probably be viewed as liable, but this site would probably be shut down before that happens, given that the public would have been given forewarning that it was re-instated. Ezra has mentioned to this effect on you tube. Shits-a-coming.

James Callaghan, they hate everything on your list except White Liberal Guilt, with which they are in love, since it gives them a venue to demonstrate the thing that matters most to them, i.e. ‘proving’ their own self-imagined moral superiority. That’s their underlying motive. They have a hole in their psyche that they are continually trying to fill by convincing themselves and others that they are intellectually and morally superior to their imagined enemies. But the truth is the exact opposite: they are intellectual and moral hypocrites to the core.

Scary time in Canada to be ruled and dominated by such people, in the halls of government, the education system and the media. Their final refuge is censorship of opposing thoughts and ideas, when they can’t logically defend their irrational beliefs and ideologies. They are liberals, socialists, cultural Marxists, social justice warriors, antifa (Trotskyites) etc. but they all have this trait in common: they HAVE TO prove themselves superior at the cost of other peoples’ freedoms. Otherwise, in their own minds, their lives have no purpose.

This is what Justin is bringing to Canada, literally. This is a short vid of an ISIS fighter talking about how many people he murdered and how many woman and children he raped.
How brainwashed do you have to be to not be concerned about this coming into your neighbourhood?

Candice Malcolm is a fantastic breath of fresh air. Her common sense cuts through every lie and exaggeration of our current marxist government. Next time your at a Trudeau Q and A ask him if he really thinks his carbon unicorn, policy, levy, price, (tax) with actually change the weather. They are flustered and many liberals don’t want a carbon tax. Speak up now! many of your liberal friends on facebook will agree!

Death by a Thousand Tiny Cuts…and the Death is Freedom…that’s what the Liberals & Extreme Liberals are doing to the West…and they do it in Tiny Cuts so the Masses won’t notice…

The Liberals…the NDP…the Democrats…and the Left Wing Parties of Europe…are ALL Destroyers of Freedom…

I just don’t understand their underlying Motivation for it…

Is it…that they Hate Capitalism?…Christians?…White Liberal Guilt?…Rich People?…Hard Working Successful Entrepreneurs???…

All of the above…and more???…

If Trudeau subsidizes the Newspaper Industry, or makes them Government entities, Canada will have no hope for Free Speech and other Freedoms. Along with M-103 and more powers for Human Rights Courts, Canada will be the new Britain with both major Political Parties standing for the same thing, Globalization.
One hope might be the European Union Elections one at a time. In three weeks Italy may vote to leave the EU along with Austria if things don’t improve. If the EU and Globalization fail, then what would be Trudeau’s new goal? He would have his own big Cuba, jails full of political protesters.
I think we need a Trump to come along fast.

Repetition of words, actions or phrases, of any political or religious faction, is to ingrain into those groups as a true and legal institution above all else. (a certain religion comes to mind.) So now we have Canadian political repetition. Every time I hear these words repeated by the Lib. govt. little boy, I duck and cringe.
Justin Castro’s war words waged against Canada’s values and sheeple.
1. Tolerance
2. inclusion
3. Diversity
4. Mosaic
5. Islamaphobia
6. Racists
7. M-103
8. Peoplekind (didn’t work)
9. Please feel free to add your own.

Are we finally coming out of our political lethargy?

We’ve been living through a lot of good and peaceful years during the last decades and it seemed that we ended up asleep on the political switch somewhere.

In fact, I feel as a baby boomer, a little like a spoiled child who has trouble repelling the threats that come before us. We are not used to taking large collective positions as the need is felt today at the National level. But we must take the bull by the horns and get involved.

Let us write our discontent to our MPs before we are caught in a difficult political situation or our freedom of speech is destroyed completely and definitively.

That is why the second amendment of the American Constitution is so sacred, it is to protect against the emergence of a totalitarian government while the population exercises their free democratic duty. It would be a pity if we were to arrive at a situation justifying the famous words of the earl of Frontenac to Admiral Phips in 1690. It is very difficult to imagine in a society that advocates advocates freedom for everything, that laws be adopted to muzzle some fears or even feelings.

Happy third birthday to the Rebel and thank you for being an awakening voice to us.
