A major police force in the UK declares war on — insults

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Look at this tweet from the South Yorkshire Police in the UK:

In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing. Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it #HateHurtsSY

But people can take offence to anything, including innocuous things. That’s the thing about being offended — it’s your own inability to control your emotions.

Now a major police force will come and become your little personal army to back up your emotional reaction.

I accept that there is such a thing as a crime that is motivated by a hatred. That’s a motive, sure. But the crime has to still exist. If you punch someone because they are black, for example. But a "hate crime" needs the "crime" part, too. So now a "hate crime" doesn’t even have to be a "crime"? That makes no sense.

More from the tweet:

Hate hurts. Report it and put a stop to it.

Hate doesn’t actually hurt you, except your feelings. You can’t legislate it away.

In fact, if you tell people they’re not allowed to feel hate is going to make them even angrier.

At least 1,400 indigenous, working class British girls were systematically raped — and I don’t mean once each, I mean hundreds of times each, literally millions of rapes — in South Yorkshire, right under the nose of the police there. Raped mostly by Pakistani Muslims.

According to the official report the police knew about it almost immediately. But time and again they were worried about being called “racist” — that’s right there in the report.

These are the people who now seek to get into the hurt feelings business.

If you think this is so kooky, so stupid, so foolish that it could only happen in the UK — well, it sounds like you haven’t been paying attention to the transformation of Canada’s police into social justice warriors, from the RCMP on down...

NEXT: Derek Fildebrandt has long been a proponent of conservative ideas in Alberta, both as a grassroots activist and then as an elected official. 

However, he is no longer an MLA under Jason Kenney's United Conservatives, and is now the interim leader of the new Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta.

He explains why he left the United Conservatives, and why he believes having two conservative parties in a single province can be a good thing.

Peter Netterville——Here is my simile for what I hope happens in the Can. Federal election.
In Sunday’s Swedish Elections:
The far far left got 40% of the vote.
The very weak center right also got 40%
The new Real Conservative Party (Call it Bernier) got 18%

Guess who controls Sweden ?? The new Party with 18%, because the Parties with 40% cannot Pass Anything unless the get Bernier on their side, giving them 40% plus 18%, for a total of 58%; this being the majority.

Back to reality in Canada, I believe Bernier will get 30 seats and Scheer 130 seats. Just saying Scheer wants to get rid of parts of M-103, he needs Bernier’s help. Bernier will say no, unless you get rid of all of M-103. Bernie’s Party will be the breaker.

I believe Liza is on to something when she predicts the NDP may self-destruct, changing all these numbers.

We can talk and theorize all we want about the splitting of potential votes or who is going to win the next election, National or Provincial.
I worked every day during the Ontario election installing lawn signs and campaigning with the local candidate for Ford.
All that work by all of us to dump Wynne and elect Ford as well as our votes have been negated by some unelected arrogant leftist Judge.
And they call this a democracy.
commented 2018-09-11 12:31:15 -0400
I’m certainly not going to vote for that Judge that quashed Ford’s downsizing of the Toronto Council.
Oh really, judges are appointed and not elected . I didn’t know that!
Well golly gee, why bother having elections if Judges know more about City Councils and Pipelines and whales?

We need a strong leader here in the UK. The country has gone mad. All the Police care about is “hurt feelings”. They seem to think they are social workers. Most people are too scared to say anything about all the evil things that are happening. If you say anything here that does not agree with the prevailing left-wing Marxist views then you risk the Police arresting you in the middle of the night and wrestling you to the floor, even if you are a frail older lady. These things have really happened here. All those poor children continually gang raped and tortured whilst the Police just blamed them and called them slags and junkies. My heart breaks for those children. I don’t see a good end for any of this. I just pray for mercy for this country and support brave people like Tommy Robinson.

Ron Joseph, I stand corrected, thanks for that.
But it doesn’t seem enough for me, this was a ‘stop the presses’ moment, in fact, the lefties in the media party went full court press on this, they even brought that snake Smitherman out in order to disparage Ford. They call him a dictator and a usurper of democracy but they won’t tell the public how the courts have quashed two pieces of legislation in three months and that all the other initiatives of this government will be tied up in the courts also.

I remember the Lilly days well and loved his correspondence, oddly enough, I think Sheila does a fine job reporting on things in Ontario, she’s like a national correspondent for the Rebel in my eyes.

P.S. I love Albertans, have friends there who I consider the salt of the earth.

As of this month the CPC have raised 4.8 million. Some of that is mine and I’m leaving.
liberals have only managed to raise a piddly 1.6 million by comparison.
That is one indicator of who people will vote for but not the only one.
The ndp are in the ditch with a scant 378 thousand dollars! So maybe some of those votes travelled.
Maxime Bernier Party Pushing NDP & Jagmeet Singh To 4th In Fundraising & Party Preference

Hey what a thought, wiping out the NDP federally. I’d love to see it.

In any case the time looks ripe for Bernier to safely jump in. Fundraising is only one indication but the odds look pretty good to me to implement some change. I don’t think Justin is going to make it even with some splitting on the right.

Speaking of fundraising, Max has raised $90,000 in two weeks. Gossip has it he is going to be having a news conference on Friday morning.
commented 2018-09-11 10:30:27 -0400
I think that federally, those who vote ndp last time will stay there.
In Alberta many/most will move right, and I don’t see that split as being that dangerous. Notley is out either way.

Re Police Force in UK…..Thou must love thine enemy, even when’st their knife strikes your back.

Praise the Lord…….and pass the ammunition.

Anyone who thought for one minute that they could vote for Trudeau will not be thrilled about having to vote for Scheer in my opinion. Whether their motives are deep or superficial, I think those votes will go to Bernier.

Liza Rosie said, "It will be a split of a much larger pie, and I will wager where the larger slice of that pie will go, "

Well, tell us where your wager will go?, or do you want to hold us in suspense until the election ?
commented 2018-09-11 09:45:26 -0400
There are people who voted for Justin last time who definitely will not this time. Where do you think their votes will go?
The math based on the pie in the last election does not apply in this one. More pie is being baked as we speak. The calculation won’t be based on the old numbers. It won’t be a split of those who voted for Harper last time. It will be a split of a much larger pie, and I will wager where the larger slice of that pie will go, and those numbers will grow. This will be a pivotal election for the future of the country and how politics are played. People are sick of the tomfoolery.
It all depends on what can be accomplished in the next few months. I wouldn’t write any scenario off.

I think Derek may also have the same sort of chance in Alberta. One thing for sure, the CPC is on notice.

Ron Joseph said, “Peter Netterville, Harold Hoff, This 4 min. video on Scheer and the Cons is what your side is fighting for, a milquetoast leader and weakened Party that cannot win.”

I think you misunderstand what “my side” is.

I do not like Scheer and I despise the CPC for going “Liberal Lite”.
I like Maxime’s politics because he is closer to a real Conservative. When his party is ready for prime time, I will vote for his candidate in my riding.

However, I have common sense.

I know that when Conservatives vote for Maxime’s party in this upcoming 2019 election the vote will be split among Conservative voters. It is simple mathematics.

A split vote means the Liberals will take office again. If you think otherwise then you need to crunch the numbers again because there are few enough Conservatives in Canada already without the vote being split in two.

Now here is the crux of my point.
I would rather have anyone in the PM chair than Trudeau.

Voting for Conservative principle (i.e. for Maxime) is great, but ultimately means nothing if Trudeau gets back into office.

And if indeed the CPC cannot win as you say, then there is no hope because Maxime’s party will not be ready for the 2019 federal election either.

Peter Netterville, Harold Hoff, This 4 min. video on Scheer and the Cons is what your side is fighting for, a milquetoast leader and weakened Party that cannot win .

Christie Blanchard National Post. “Scheer always seems to be reading from a script and playing it safe.”
Joyce Napier CTV Political Chief, “Nobody seems to know Andrew Scheer and those that do don’t seem to care what he thinks.”
Most people don’t think we will win with Scheer, so there is nothing to lose by supporting Bernier, at least until a month before the election, then we or your side may change opinions.

Deborah and Liza, Intelligent Posts re election.

While I’m on the topic I just thought I would mention for whatever reason I couldn’t sign into the comment section here with facebook as I got this message. This URL Is Blocked: The URL “”" rel="nofollow">" has been blocked from Facebook. Not sure if I made some mistake or what happened. Luckily I could sill sign in with twitter . I should also mention a month back when I went to sign I was met with the question asking which rule was broken as if I had reported flagged someone which I hadn’t and had not even read anyone’s comments so not sure why that occurred.

So would calling someone hypersensitive be a crime if it was true?

Allan Peterson I am offended at your comment. I am offended I didn’t think of it first.

The whole insult crime could easily digress into a vicious downward spiral. I say something insulting and the offended party reports me for which I am offended (I tend to get offended at cry babies who abuse the system) and report them which they would naturally be offended at.

Could calling the Liberals wastrels be construed as “hateful”? I guess I need to be more circumspect with the self-censoring.

Gotta love that English language:

foolish talk; nonsense.
“politicians get away all the time with their blatherskite”

Dan, how about this old anglo treasure? Sure describes the Liberals.

Well, naturally, Ezra. They wouldn’t want to offend the offenders. It could be construed as hate towards child rapists. We wouldn’t want to be rash or hasty in such an event would we? Heaven forfend.

“Has policing in the UK become one giant demented Monty Python script ?”

Yes. The answer to it is:

French Soldier: I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

John Rob 3 hr ago…I totally agree that our two largest Provinces need more Political attention from the Rebel. Brian Lilly covered Ontario and was not replaced. Having said that, I saw that Ezra made a video regarding the Ont. Leftest Judge going way out and agreeing with the Toronto Mayor instead of the person that runs the Province.

The Rebel could also use part time Journalists in BC, The Atlantic Provinces and Sask. and Manitoba. Needless to say, Quebec will be an important voice running up to the next election. (75 seats)

DAN MANCUSO commented, “No one can accuse Ezra and THEREBEL of being an echo chamber for any Conservatives after that session with Derek Fildebrandt! It was also good to see how Mr Fildebrandt stood up under it”.

I agree and I believe appropriately Ezra could not come across as a cheerleader for Derek and the FCP. However, he gave Derek a voice and a chance to make himself and his party known, and, to his credit, Derek had no qualms about appearing on the Rebel unlike Kenney who threw The Rebel under the bus. Derek also attended the Rebel’s anti-carbon tax rally in Calgary this summer while, disappointingly, UCP MLA Drew Barnes (probably under orders from Kenney) was a no-show.
