International Women’s Day: Why we need LESS feminism in Canada

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


It’s International Women’s Day. Which we really need, actually. In huge swaths of the world, women are second class citizens.

But in Canada, every day is women’s day.

On Monday I showed you some powerful statistics about it: How the leading professions are dominated by women — sometimes overwhelmingly.

Why? It’s not just that women are liberated and free to choose those professions, but rather that — between fake campus rape charges to "social justice" rhetoric — men are actively discouraged from attending university.

In Canada, feminism even bizarrely means letting men be women. The Globe and Mail says so:

"This International Women’s Day, feminists should - finally - accept transgender women”

That's because feminism is chiefly a male tool, to get transgender men into places they couldn’t go.

Or, more commonly, as political cover for men who know that if they say they’re a male feminist, they can get away with things. Like the serial abuser, Jian Ghomeshi. Or Bill Clinton for that matter, or Teddy Kennedy or Harvey Weinstein.

And the centre of feminism in Canada is Justin Trudeau.

Today he got an award and gave a speech at the Equal Voice International Women's Day lunch.

Because nothing says “International Women’s Day” like a powerful man stopping by a U.S. corporation’s Toronto branch plant to pick up an award at a photo op.

Tonight I'll show you some of what Justin Trudeau said today, about women's rights — which we've had years, decades, even centuries in Canada. But not in Trudeau’s favourite places, like Iran, or even China, where women can’t vote.

Not a word about that from Trudeau.

Trudeau’s own Liberals are overrun with sexual misconduct:

Darshan Kang, a Trudeau MP, was found to have groped staff, including the friend of his own daughter. Kent Hehr was a Cabinet creep that everyone seemed to know about for years.

But we still get the same self-righteous preening from Canada's Liberals — always praising themselves, always scolding you, and always spending your money...

NEXT: Sheila Gunn Reid joins me to talk more about the "fake feminism" of the West.

THEN: Jim Hanson, the president of the Security Studies Group, comments on the student who tried to blow up his school in the name of ISIS — and why the media ignored this story.

If Trudeau really wanted to go on record as having every female fawn all over him, because that’s what this is truly about, he could first begin behaving like a man.

When Trudeau ran for LPC leadership, there were 4 women who had entered the race. Each and everyone of these ladies had far more qualifications than Trudeau. And at least 3 of them had far better communication skills than Trudeau.

Deborah Coyne, Martha Hall Findlay, Karen McCrimmon, Joyce Murray.

Background of the women candidates:

Deborah Coyne, 58, was a Toronto lawyer, professor and author who ran for the Liberals in the riding of Toronto—Danforth in the 2006 federal election. She worked in the Prime Minister’s Office in the 1980s and between 1989 and 1991 she was constitutional adviser to Newfoundland Premier Clyde Wells.

Hall Findlay, 53, was the former MP for Willowdale, Ontario (2008–2011)
Candidate for the Liberal leadership in 2006
Official Opposition Critic Transport, Infrastructure and Communities (2008–2009)
Official Opposition Critic for Public Works (2009–2010)
Official Opposition Critic for International Trade (2010–2011)

McCrimmon is a retired Canadian Forces Lieutenant colonel who was the first woman to command a Royal Canadian Air Force squadron (429 Transport Squadron). She was the Liberal candidate in Carleton—Mississippi Mills during the 2011 election. McCrimmon served in the Gulf War, with NATO forces during the Yugoslav Wars, and the War in Afghanistan, and in 1995 was admitted to the Order of Military Merit in the rank of Officer.

Murray, 58, had been the Liberal MP for Vancouver Quadra, British Columbia since 2008 and served as Opposition Critic for Small Business and Tourism, Asia — Pacific Gateway and Western Economic Diversification (2011–present). BC Liberal MLA for New Westminster (2001-2005). BC Minister of Water, Land and Air Protection (2001-2004). BC Minister of Management Services (2004-2005)

And of course then there was Trudeau’s outstanding bio at the time::

Trudeau, at the age of 41, had been Parliamentarian for Papineau, since 2008, Liberal Post Secondary Education, Youth and Amateur Sport Critic (2011–2015) and son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

And not once do I recall Trudeau proudly declaring his rise to feminist status during the LPC leadership race. In fact it was while the love fest (after becoming PM) was in full swing that he began chirping about his feminist greatness.

Mar. 16, 2016 · “I’m going to keep saying, loud and clearly, that I am a feminist. Until it is met with a shrug ……

Well it is being met with a shrug time. Frankly I along with so many Canadians are finding his obsession with genital speaches are getting rather boring.

“Societies that find themselves hosting a vast population of resentful underemployed males do not leave a reassuring record in history.”
From article Ron Voss posted link for.

Women’s Day, pah!
Women need to start taking responsibility for the health of their families again, and that includes the men and boys in their lives. Women need strong emotionally healthy men, and so does our society. We need to support each other.

This is the first in a series on Tucker with Jordan Peterson called
“What is Happening to Men?” Tucker and Jordan Peterson Debut New “Men in America” Series every Wednesday.
Something Tucker said really struck me. He said a lot of the drugs given to settle down rambunctious boys in the classroom were being found to cause depression later in life. Peterson ends the talk saying that if you hear the words, intersectionality, equity, diversity, exclusivity, white privilege, systemic racism, you are to take your children out of the class because they are not being educated they are being indoctrinated.

Ron Voss— I read your link on Ted Byfield. All North American decision making people in the School Boards should be made to read that great study and it doesn’t push Religion down the throats of the people that want to decide by themselves.
Growing up in Montreal we had all Female teachers until grade 6, (12 years old) then we got MR. Buley. He was really large and smoked a big cigar; our devilish attitudes changed quickly and our grades stayed the same as earlier we had some good Female teachers.
Years later I heard the Female teachers got Mr. Buley fired for smoking his cigar

Liza Rosie—Yesterday I saw a Doctor,30 years old, never saw him before. He said Dr’s in Canada are getting blamed unfairly for falling behind. Then he said Trudeau is bringing in all these people, their parents and grandparents from a different culture. The problem is they take much more time than a average Canadian to perform the simplest of doctoring tasks. Without me saying anything, he said that Opposition guy doesn’t seem much better.
Back to this Trudeau petition, is it just coincidence that the Conservative Opposition Party finally did something intelligent while their Leader was out of the Country, in Britain??

If any of you know a young man that needs a little help understanding their masculinity, a book called “King, Warrior, Magician, Lover” gave me some perspective and may help someone else out. You can find some of this info in Dr. Jordan Peterson’s discussions as well because he covers archetypes and young men.

These so called feminists are just making noise because they are being paid too. They have the absolute gall to say they speak for all women. Most women are not fanatical freaks who hate men. My daughter tells me that sometimes she’s afraid when she goes out with her 14-month old son because she gets angry stares from women. She’s told me some are quite aggressive and follow her when she’s shopping. Or if her baby makes a noise, they stare at her like it’s not normal for babies to make sounds. I can’t think of anything more beautiful than a cooing baby!

Kameron Cuk – I absolutely agree. When I grew up most of the moms stayed home and reared the children while dad went to work. The latch key kids now don’t have that same sense of security at home, and many have nervous disorders from being afraid of making mistakes, and being shamed in front of others for trying to be individuals. Not that everyone had a perfect life back then, but it sure beats being sent to daycare, where they could careless about what kind of a day your having. I wish we could turn back the hands of time.

“These feminist men were raised without proper male role models and now the effects of boys being raised by women alone is coming up and out with these weak boys (by weak, I mean weak spirit and disconnected with their male spirit…..if that makes any sense). "
KAMERON CUK , it makes perfect sense.

As far as I’m concerned the Feminist movement is dead. We don’t even need it any more. If we have international women’s day then it is absolute discrimination to not have an international men’s day. Same with Pride parade. The ‘inclusive’ thing to do would be to have a hetero parade, maybe one that celebrates the traditional family, including children, grandparents Aunts and Uncles.

All those ‘tolerant’ progressives need a lesson or two on tolerance, because as far as they are concerned if you are not one of the ‘correct’ identities, you don’t exist. Worse. If you are not one of the ‘correct’ identities, then you are an oppressor. This bullsht has to stop. Equal rights means for all not just for some. Unless you are a pedophile, or some other ‘identity’ that hurts more than just yourself. Then the only right you have, is to a fair trial.

As long as this isn’t pushed in schools, and biological facts aren’t rewritten and I don’t have to pay for it, I will be tolerant of this as well, I suspect that if it wasn’t given such special treatment it would be less of a fad and quietly settle into its rightful place in society as the minuscule portion of the population that it is.

A majority of women don’t agree or see themselves as feminists and feminism will and is falling apart within itself. The western world is and has been in support of women for a long time, so no need for feminists other than to push some there agendas.
As for male feminists, they are a disgrace and lack security or knowledge of their masculinity. Masculine men who have had good male role models know that it is a part of them to care for, protect, and uplift the women in their lives. These feminist men were raised without proper male role models and now the effects of boys being raised by women alone is coming up and out with these weak boys (by weak, I mean weak spirit and disconnected with their male spirit…..if that makes any sense). Its important for young girls to have a strong mother for a feminine role model as well as a father for balance JUST the same is for young boys to have a strong father figure as well as mother for balance.
This is all the effects of children being raised in unhealthy households and missing parents, there is a reason that it takes a woman and man to make a child, the same is required to raise the child…. A Mom and Dad

Just my 2 cents….or 5 cents since we don’t have pennies LOL

The feminist movement has been hijacked by the radical leftists and has no relation with the rights of women. It now means war against men and it’s the enemy of women, and I believe it’s another tool used by the left to destroy western culture. They use a specific language with terms that don’t mean what it would normally say. For ex. Trudeau never says abortion, so a normal person doesn’t know what he’s really talking about. The UN is running Canada. So far, Trudeau has sent many billions outside the country, and he doesn’t have a penny for our vets. The average canadian is taxed insanely, indebted to the max., and we pay to abort children in Africa ,finance terrorism in Palestine, pay the lavish trips around the globe of these corrupt puppets in Ottawa, and pay the welfare of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who hate our guts. How long until we reach the same standards of living as Venezuela. Oh, I forgot, that’s the goal. All those canadians who voted for this BS deserve what is coming.

Note to Ezra Levant and your demented Webmaster. This site is already behind a paywall. Putting these extra adds on the video screen after a paid member has signed in is screwing up this site. It is now taking much longer for the video to load after one has logged in.

Mr. Levant. tell your webmaster NOT TO RUIN a perfectly good pay site out of GREED. If I cannot load the videos that I have already paid for because of all these extra ads you will end up losing a loyal customer out of frustration. I strongly suspect I will not be the only one. SMARTEN UP!

I think men that call themselves feminists are in denial and hide behind women’s skirts because they have no identity as a man, and have no idea how a real man should behave. The Bible is full of strong males, but in the world real men are being demonized and are being made to feel inferior to women. The devil continues to use women to cause chaos for the human race, undermining the two genders established by God himself. I’d be interested to know how many of these self professed male feminists never had a strong male role model in there lives. I would think it would be the majority!

I think ever one is fed up with Trudeau and with I’m a feminist.

Please come to my farm and say that you are a feminazi. If you truly are a man I will kick you in the nuts. Any man calling himself a feminist is a limp wristed, weak dick POS and not much more.

Now please just eff off and go play with the lefty folks that want to destroy this country – because there is no such thing as a good feminazis. They are all disgusting people.

The way the Clown Prince Trudeau pushes this feminism crap he most likely wishes he was a woman. His partner probably carries around his cajones in her purse. The “shitforbrains” needs to go and go now. He makes my stomach turn.

This bastard gives our tax money to the tune of two thirds of a billion dollars to promote and support abortion, but does not give one nickle to stop female genital mutilation and then calls himself a feminist – he is a murderer plain and simple.
I am utterly surprised that the Catholic, Christian learders

I wonder if Justin constantly referring to himself – sorry ‘personself’ – as being a feminist is because he uses the women’s washroom and maybe the showers at the parliament buildings?
Maybe by publicly declaring himself – sorry again ‘personself’ – as a feminist he can use women’s washrooms in public places like restaurants and so on, and because he self identifies as a feminist no one can say anything about it.
Might be something for The Rebel investigation team to check out.
If it were true, wouldn’t that be funny and the story to beat all stories? I’d break out a bottle of 12 year old scotch.
