The “Trump of Brazil” was almost assassinated: How long before a Canadian conservative is targeted?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday, the leading presidential candidate in Brazil, named Jair Bolsonaro, was stabbed.

I have no connection to Brazil at all, but this was an attack on anyone who believes in democracy.

Luckily, Bolsonaro survived. He may even return to the campaign trail.

The vast majority of news coverage of this event has called Bolsonaro as “far-right”.

In fact, Bolsonaro is centrist, if words mean anything:

He was the leading candidate to win the presidency, just a month from now.

But the man who tried to murder him — well, the line is, he’s just mentally disturbed. That’s always what the media says when it’s a Muslim terrorists, or an alt-left terrorist.

I care about this, because this is normalized.

Steve Scalise was targeted because he was a Republican. He was shot by a left-wing activist.

Conservative Senator Rand Paul was attacked so badly he was sent to hospital for days.

Our own Sheila Gunn Reid was punched in the face by a leftist named Dion Bews. A Toronto Sun photographer was hit on the head, and had to take medical leave, when some alt-left Antifa types didn’t like him because he was with the Sun. And seven policemen just stood by and let it happen.

How far is it from a punch in the face to a gun?

Do you doubt that one day, a conservative will be assassinated?

Maybe here in Canada?

Don’t pretend there aren’t people who very much want it to happen here.

NEXT: Frank H. Buckley is a Foundation Professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University. He has a new book out about Trump's transformation of American politics (The Republican Worker's Party) but this week he became a bit of a "meme" after appearing on the CBC to talk about Trudeau's disastrous trade talks.

When he calmly and reasonably criticised the Liberals' incompetence during the NAFTA negotiations, the CBC host was literally left stuttering with confusion!

He joins me tonight to talk about all this and more.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Well done Ezra. I like the show’s content as it is. One interview is probably enough. It is a long show and I can’t always watch it right thru.

I have no idea what this Brazilian center/right politician said.

But it sure is deeply disturbing that conservatives/right wingers are increasingly the target of violence for expressing conservative values, some of those values that until not long ago even the “classic” liberals once held.

Those values now are being called hate speech;
such as border controlled immigration (reminder: must be racist if not for open borders),
separation of church and state (reminder: Sharia creeping into the schools),
and much more.

The worst part is that the main stream media either ignores the violence against conservatives, cheers it on, or at the very least implies that the victim deserves it. All that attitude does is encourage it.

It is becoming by the day increasingly dangerous to hold conservative values.

Normalization is the first step to criminal code violations:
46 teason
83 terrorism
181 spreading false news
264 criminal harassment
264.1 assault
423 intimidation

But the really scary part is the media, police and court inaction.
Even the police won’t make an arrest. 122/336 breach of trust

So civil war time is coming.

- The far left wants violence. They want blood running through the streets. It is in this bloody chaos that they seize power. Nazis, fascists, communists, socialists of every type rely on the fog of chaos to give them cover. What we’re seeing throughout the West is the ground being prepared.

- Are the Liberals stupid or are they trying to throw the NAFTA talks? The answer is yes? They are trying to throw the NAFTA talks & they are stupid enough to think it’s a good strategy. Looks like I have another book for my book list.

- I liked the old format. I like the new format. I’m good with it either way you decide to go. A suggestion I’d make is to revamp your website. You have shows listed on the main page that haven’t had new content in the better part of a year or so & it can be difficult to find some of the new premium shows. I found them eventually but others might not have been so fortunate.

Space Moose JFK was hardly what you would call a leftist by todays measure. JFK would despise the democratic party now.

Ron Joseph..imo..The reason why the star was “fair and balanced” They want to split the vote.

I think Max did the right thing..hopefully a whole bunch of others think so to.

I have been wondering for some time why so many people refer to NAZIs as either right wing or far right wing. Since you correctly stated in this report that socialists, including the low life who tried to kill Bolsonaro, as being far left, why would a political party calling themselves “National Socialist German Worker’s Party” be considered to be on the right?

Bernier speaking sense…que in the liberalist globalist wingnuts from the msm..with their "You ARE a Racist!!!

Maybe alternate shows with one guest, and the next night two guests. I’d also like to see a weekly summary of the week’s global events on Friday’s. I know David has his show but I’d like to see yours too Ezra. But I’ll be happy if the Rebel just keeps on giving us the real news! No matter what you decide, I’ll still tune in.

… Violence towards conservatives.
… Media and the Left: “He brought it on himself.”

Off topic
Earlier this week, Ann Vandersteel – Steel Truth interviewed 2 of 118 members of the Intelligence Community who created a website to expose the Deep State and provide documentation/corroboration of corruption etc…. It was launched yesterday. Anyone can join and read the reports.

JOHN KANOLD——Ed Sullivan would have had Trudeau and Freeland on as guests during the CIRCUS part of the show.
commented 2018-09-08 08:24:23 -0400
Ezra. You are over analyzing this. If you have a great guest like lat night; go long. If you use regular guests (who we love) like Furey and Menzoid use short running plays. Don’t even worry about the length of the show or monologue, I could have listened to you and Professor Buckley for hours. Some shows I get bored with. That’s me. Ed Sullivan was on from 8 to 9. Don’t be confined to rules. Be a rebel.

No, who killed JFK? The single bullet theory?
commented 2018-09-08 02:39:12 -0400
I like two guests, but I also like longer interviews. I guess I’m torn. Enjoyed tonight’s interview with Buckley. I hope many of the left leaning Canadians saw that interview on the cbc and begin seeing the pathetic amateurish politicians for what they are. At this point I think Freeland, Justin et al, want the country to fail in any and every way. They certainly seem to be making every effort to bring us to our knees. I think it is the Obama model of how to destroy a country with a little help from other bad faith actors. It certainly does not feel as if Trudeau and his cabal of ghouls are on the side of Canadians in any way.
commented 2018-09-08 02:38:41 -0400
Ezra you say people aren’t watching all the way through. I often stop a show to gather some supplementary info, or to confirm something and come back to continue listening to the interview. Sometimes I have to attend to something and come back. Do the analytics reflect those sorts of moves?
I simply could not stomach Le Drew (as per Ron Joseph’s suggestion) they don’t make gravol strong enough for me to put up with him.
commented 2018-09-08 01:11:00 -0400
Where did the lefts violence begin? Today it seems they have lost their ability to debate and have no good ideas and all they can do is lash out. Their historical argumen would say their violence is justified by some righteous rebellion to tyranny ala Che Guevara or the French resistance to Hitler. Isn’t this why so many in the US support the 2nd Amendment? I suppose the question is what is tyranny?
commented 2018-09-08 01:04:44 -0400
Ezra, as MIKE LAVIGNE said 4 hrs ago, tinker with your show. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, by having only one guest.

Perhaps BATTLEGROUND is taking up too much of your time and should be given to another host, like Stephen Le Drew.

For a start, get rid of that old 8500 name petition to Ont. Hydro and David Suzuki, we have heard it 1000 times. Use this 30 seconds to announce your guests. Viewers won’t leave if they are popular.
commented 2018-09-08 00:29:57 -0400
I also enjoyed the Professor and his opinions of Freeland. He said that the White House doesn’t like her which is a popular opinion. Negotiators are supposed to be like salespeople, very likeable. The Russians don’t seem to like her either, as they have also banned Freeland from entering Russia.

Some of you may say Russia isn’t a Democracy so it bans lots of people. Ezra and Sheila could go there tomorrow, but they were banned by Scheer at the Halifax Conservative Meeting. What a Democracy !

Great show, love Professor Buckley.
Proves what amateurs the CBC anchors are. Just loved his interview with ‘Rosie’.
Another conservative hating Rosie.
commented 2018-09-07 21:06:46 -0400
I really enjoyed the interview with Professor Buckley, I hope to see him again.

Ezra, another Rebel made a great suggestion a couple of days ago and I agree with it…replace the show’s current intro with what the current show will deliver.
commented 2018-09-07 21:03:00 -0400
Frank H. Buckley is my kind of guest, Ezra you must have him back on. The way he triggered Burton was marvelous and very entertaining. Great show man.
commented 2018-09-07 20:59:09 -0400
IMO, JFK was a centrist. It sure wasn’t Lee Harvey Oswald who killed him. George Bush Sr should really be interrogated before he kicks the bucket!
commented 2018-09-07 20:57:03 -0400
If people aren’t watching through, flip the show. A LOT of people want to hear what you have to say Ezra. Put the monologue near the end : )

Winston would be in Tommy’s camp.
Arise Sir Stephen.

I certainly hope a conservative politician in Canada is never attacked. Those on the left, one in particular on the other hand, well lets just the only tears I would shed would be from obsolute joy.
