Keean Bexte: United We Roll Convoy inspired a nation

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

On this week's episode of The Gunn Show, Rebel reporter Keean Bexte joined me to talk about his experience riding along with the United We Roll Convoy.

Members of the pro-pipeline convoy were primarily from Alberta and Saskatchewan, but they attracted supporters from across Canada.

Keean told me about the crowds of patriotic Canadians who came out show their support along the convoy route, his favorite stop was Sault Ste. Marie, a small city in northern Ontario. 

The organizer of the United We Roll Convoy, Glen Carritt, spoke before crowds that would make Stephen Harper and Justin Trudeau jealous. It's clear that Glen has built an inspiring national movement.

All those trucks( close to 100) on the streets around Parliament Hill, all had people in them as well. Most western Canadians who still do have a job, are working and so guess what, they couldn’t go. That’s a lot of miles and a lot of time to take off work. Ottawa’s antifa only had to crawl out of their mothers basements, and went home before mom rang the supper bell. Go piss on your shoes.

Andrew you are an idiot. can’t you flicking read? Get lost troll.

Wick, shove off. Had all the people across the country who came out to wave the convoy on and those who attended the rallies at the stops, all been together in one place, the numbers would have been in the thousands. Its documented. Believe it or not, but get stuffed.

Al,

I’ve seen bigger crowds in a phone booth or waiting for the bus.

For you younger folks here, a phone booth was a small cubicle used for making phone calls in public spaces.

Wow – what an impact indeed. Pretty lame movement.

Andrew Stevenson… Once again you’re cut and paste is most impressive but to be fair you should list your sources.!! "

If you think it’s copy and paste, you must have access to the “original source” yourself, or else this allegation would be completely baseless.

Let’s see them, or your allegations ARE completely baseless.

Andrew isn’t just the brain addled SJW we (I) thought he was. He is nothing but a lousy troll. He is nothing but an idiot here to do the bidding of those who are trying to paint a huge part of Canada in a negative light "

If so, my comments should be easily refuted. Yet, they are not. Hmmm…

The politicians set the stage and fuel the division daily by constant lies and misinformation. They are not going to win.

This comment by Iqra Khalid is just another example of the contempt
the liberals have for Canadians and show us daily. She should step down and be sued for her second ‘fact’. I would crowdfund for that! She should be sued for all of them, but Glen Carritt might have a case against her for her false accusation about him personally.

Fact: United We Roll preaches hate towards minorities and immigrants

Fact: Organizers for UWR have called for the murder of Canadian public figures

Fact: Scheer knows this, and gladly uses them for his fear-mongering.

“If it was of no consequence why did their Antifa pals come out to demonstrate and the media to excoriate if they mentioned them at all? "

To steal the narrative, which they appear to have done. (I’m not convinced this was actually Antifa, or grassroots counterprotests attributed to them).

“The reality is they are afraid of the movement catching on and overturning their socialist movement. The reality is that people did support them and came out in the coldest February in years. Trucks form all over the country joined them who they could- "

I suppose you could claim national origin, although the majority were from SK/AB/NL. Not sure what the Newfies are protesting, exactly, since their own oil is literally already on tidewater.

It’s not clear that this was anti-socialist. That’s a bit of a reach for a movement demanding government intervention.

" So the fact that as many people showed up tells us the level of visible support would have been much higher in June or July. It also showed what a wimp our PM is. His disdain for the “middle class” that he professed so much concern for during the election is as low or lower than his step-father’s. "

Why do rightists insist on promulgating lies about the size of the crowd? ( :p ) when the rest of your post tacitly acknowledges the crowd is smaller than you think it should have been.

The “middle class” is not exclusive to the oilpatch. Most middle class Canadians aren’t resource workers. More middle class people work in the office towers in downtown Toronto – just one city- than in the entire energy sector.

“The numbers would have been higher if the Lugenpress had reported it and reported it accurately” How so? The organizers themselves seem to have had problems putting their pants on the right way, and when they figured it out, most Canadians have jobs and can’t pick up willy-nilly pick up and parade across the country.

Surely there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do evil in the sight of the Lord..

It’s been going on a long time. Many will willingly sell themselves to Satan and become one of his minions.

Ron Shea, right on. Good observation and commentary. We see this in the left continuously: “To assent to an obvious lie is… in some small way to become evil oneself.” Exactly.

It reinvent forces what Jesus said:

“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

And it supports what Paul said:

" For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm."

I think the usual drive by stooges are void of any functioning brain matter.
commented 2019-02-23 12:15:34 -0500
Isn’t it interesting that our usual Drive Bys are insisting that the convoy had no impact. They are very adamant about it. Is that because in reality they know that it did have an impact as people from all across the land joined in or showed support along the way?

If it was of no consequence why did their Antifa pals come out to demonstrate and the media to excoriate if they mentioned them at all?

The reality is they are afraid of the movement catching on and overturning their socialist movement. The reality is that people did support them and came out in the coldest February in years. Trucks form all over the country joined them who they could- it takes away from their livelihoods to comet but they did in significant numbers. On the hill people came out in the cold wether to show support. Ontario citizens joined with them in towns all along the way. The East united with the West and this scares the elitists and their supporters. They can no longer pass it off as a bunch of racist Westerners although that it always their first tactic and will continue to do so. Good job. That is why Johnny and MBAP resort to mockery in hope it will be contagious.

Doing this in February wasn’t a great idea since fewer people are going to come out in the cold. So the fact that as many people showed up tells us the level of visible support would have been much higher in June or July. It also showed what a wimp our PM is. His disdain for the “middle class” that he professed so much concern for during the election is as low or lower than his step-father’s.

The numbers would have been higher if the Lugenpress had reported it and reported it accurately. Here are the journalistic Standards and Practises from the CBC that they contradicted at will:

Our Principles
• Accuracy

We seek out the truth in all matters of public interest. We invest our time and our skills to learn, understand and clearly explain the facts to our audience. The production techniques we use serve to present the content in a clear and accessible manner.

• Fairness

In our information gathering and reporting, we treat individuals and organizations with openness and respect. We are mindful of their rights. We treat them even‑handedly.

• Balance

We contribute to informed debate on issues that matter to Canadians by reflecting a diversity of opinion. Our content on all platforms presents a wide range of subject matter and views.

On issues of controversy, we ensure that divergent views are reflected respectfully, taking into account their relevance to the debate and how widely held these views are. We also ensure that they are represented over a reasonable period of time.

• Impartiality

We provide professional judgment based on facts and expertise. We do not promote any particular point of view on matters of public debate.

• Integrity

The trust of the public is our most valued asset. We avoid putting ourselves in real or potential conflict of interest. This is essential to our credibility.

They did none of this.

To call them down for arriving at the same time as the Lavalin scandal was going on is idiotic. They planned this and left Alberta long before this scandal broke in the news. Apparently they were supposed to have ESP and plan accordingly.

The fact that they have upset Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites, Johnny-of-Many-Names as well as the Lugenpress tells me they were very effective. They are afraid. Keep up the good work.

Ah, yes, and i see the comment thread has devolved into neckless thuggery.

“Below, the video is a perfect example of Jagmeat using his influence to sabotage the PPC because Laura Lynn is a threat to him in the Burnaby riding and the seat that he desperately needs to be the leader of the NDP party.”

She’s not a threat in Burnaby South at all. The threat is the Libs, who completely screwed up the candidate nomination process and are still the favourite to win.

Burnaby South is 70% non-white. Visible minorities are often easy Conservative voters and tend to be noticeably more right-leaning than urban whites, but the hackles are raised with even the faintest whiff of racism. (Yes, I’m aware of the “Singh got smacked down” video being promulgated by people who are a) white and b)don’t seem to live in this riding).

Her electoral credibility is best highlighted by her run for school trustee in Burnaby. Most local elections in BC don’t use wards, the entire district is represented at-large by some number of candidates. In Burnaby, the top seven candidates got elected to trustee seats. Thompson placed tenth out of thirteen and didn’t secure a seat in a race where more people won than lost. In fact she missed the cutoff by more than 5,000 votes.

I don’t think a lot of people actually cared about the “convoy”. They don’t seem to have picked up many supporters in southern Ontario or Quebec. 50,000 people showed up at a climate change rally in Montreal… how many made the 2-hour drive to Ottawa to join this pipeline/anti Trudeau parade?

It took them a couple tries to get going, they attracted racists like flies to shit, and after an aggressive push to get rid of the racist element, they were left with a few dozen trucks and protesters, some of whom were still waving around “Trudeau for Treason” and ‘No immigrant" signs, which is of course always an indicator of reasonable people willing to engage in debate. Combine that with the fact that a smallish convoy rolled into town on a day when a far bigger political quagmire had the media’s attention, and guess what?

Nobody really cares.

Al, Max asked Trudeau a very specific question the other day in QP in the HoC. He asked about SNC-Lav and why crony capitalism, (which is essentially Socialism), has to end in Canada, because SNC-Lav is not the only company looking for handouts for failed business models. Trudeau of course gave a non-answer. But Max asked that question specifically because he knows the Liberals under Trudeau and the Conservatives under Scheer, have ties to SNC-Lav, not to mention the dairy cartel and he knows corruption is rampant, especially in Quebec where he is from. Scheer seems not to want to let on that the Conservatives have ties with these corrupt, crony capitalists.
Trudeau is a symptom of a Canadian population that is overfed, apathetic and unconcerned and if Trudeau gets re-elected (I still have doubts that there will be an election and still wonder why Trudeau has not resigned), it won’t be because of Max at all but because of our useless population of emasculated liars, that does not care and does not critically think, the leftists who control the universities, and a bought and paid for mainstream media that has poisoned inquiring minds. It is important for us who know what is actually going on, and how crucial this election is, to talk to our neighbours and fellow Canadian patriots and let them know what is really at stake in this Fall election which is the future of our nation. Are we Canadians or are we the UN? Iqra Khalid tweeted this out yesterday, from a link she put up of a Vice article:

“Fact: United We Roll preaches hate towards minorities and immigrants

Fact: Organizers for UWR have called for the murder of Canadian public figures

Fact: Scheer knows this, and gladly uses them for his fear-mongering."

This is the woman who brought in M-103 who wants Canada to turn into her version of Pakistan. She is a hate-filled, anti-Canadian, Islamic bigot. And remember Jody Wilson-Raybould voted for M-103.

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent, when they are being told the most obvious lies or even worse, when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to an obvious lie is… in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to”. British Psychiatrist and Author Theodore Dalrymple

So much for Mr. Middle class. I’ve said from the beginning that he would know the middle class if ran over them in his limo.

The opposition needs to hammer on The Groper being one of the 1%. They need to hammer on his corporate connections and glad handing.

Maxime seems to be the only one likely to do so. “He’s just not ready” didn’t tell why he wasn’t ready. Get to the specifics and hammer long and loud on them.

I said this on another post. The Rebel has got to have some muscle along. Concealed or otherwise. If they get attacked then let the beat down begin.

One of the signs of living in a police state is when the law is applied differently to different groups. Welcome to 1984.

Many good points of view here; we have to stop The Rebel staff from getting roughed up, and have to stay out of jail.
Anybody watch PAWN STARS? (History Channel) They had the same two problems as The Rebel, so they hired ANTWAUN, a 6’5 person who was a doorman when the place was busy and could fill in behind the counter when needed.

The Rebel could hire someone like that to do miscellaneous jobs like editing in the shop, and when the Reporters were going on a possibly dangerous job, bring him along. Teach him different jobs, maybe even spare cameraman.
Could save a lot on Lawyers.
