(UPDATED) Australian Antifa says Rebel’s black staff “have internalized racism” — and he’s just getting started

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

(UPDATE: We later learned that our anti-Rebel Antifa was really Melbourne comedian Lewis Spears. Admit it: It's hard to tell the difference — and it's still pretty funny. We should have known something was up — real Antifa thugs don't debate you, they assault you.)

When I was in Australia meeting with our new Rebel contributors from “down under,” a young fellow approached us. He recognized us, which was flattering, I guess.

I gave him the chance to express his views, which included banning The Rebel from Australia.

LOL, to all you people complaining, Lewis Spears is a small Australian comedian, he has been known to prank people doing this just to cause a scene aswell as making his own protest for the hell of it and then further trolling ‘A Current Affair’ into thinking he is a cyber bully… this bloke is lit, do some research kids

Regardless of what his motive for engaging Ezra was all about, this only and still proves/reinforces the fact that Antifa have no valid arguments or any basis whatsoever for even a semblance of normative rationality, cognitive consistency, and moral consistency, when trying to convince intelligent and righteous people what they are all about.

Doesn’t matter if this “Sam” guy is a comedian, antifa or whatever the hell he felt like being that day, the message is still the same regarding the antifa rioters and all comments here are valid. Besides, maybe “Sammy” secretly supports antifa like all the rest of the celebrities.

The give away, is that this guy is not emotional enough to be a real anti fa.
commented 2017-04-28 21:08:52 -0400
Every true comedian knows how much material the progressives are creating for them , this guy is one small example, the rest of the comedy world would be having a field day if so many of them weren’t just whipped idiots who support censorship.

Jimmy Miles: Thanks for enlightening us.
Just heard a bit of Lewis Spears podcast, and Jimmy is right, he is actually against Antifa (while not being too far-right neither). Good job playing an Antifa turd, Lewis. Join Ezra or Claire in a video.

The Rebel got trolled by Lewis Spears. He is an Aussie comedian. He isnt an Antifa supporter, he is actually on the same side as Rebel. You got a taste of Aussie bullshit haha!

It’s too bad these antifa rioters (except for Sam, because he didn’t have 300 other antifa-liens with him) who fully support communism don’t have a clue what they are supporting. They should go to visit a true communist failed country like Venezuela or research the facts about Russia during the communist takeover in the early 1900’s when millions of people were killed by the communists. Antifa is full of ignorance.

Good on Lewis to at least try to support his argument. Maybe you or Claire can reach out to him for a comedy skit (like Gavin vs. Miles). He could probably use the publicity, and if it’s funny in a sarcastic Gavin McInnis sorta way, maybe a repeat invite? He doesn’t sound like stupid guy, but perhaps a victim of one-sided leftist education. Who knows, the Rebel might even convince him to “convert” to conservatism!

These fools can’t even keep their straight.
commented 2017-04-28 14:22:16 -0400
Sam is a fascist dirt bag. Has already pre-judged others based on someone else telling him so.
commented 2017-04-28 13:45:12 -0400
EZRA , the REBEL will be a good fit in Australia
Good business plan

I remember back when Seinfeld aired the famous soup Nazi episodes I read that the real proprietor of the lunch place was upset by the term Nazi being applied to his eatery. I chuckled to myself and thought relax guy it was meat as a joke. Now I am beginning to see some relevance to a word like that being so over used that it is literally being applied without question to anyone who some political party doesn’t like. But there is a big difference between a comedian making a point about someone being too strict or regimented and a political party or media deliberately and purposefully smearing their opponents. These reckless slanderous accusations have real life consequences which aren’t limited to political competitions but can lead to violence injury and threats to life. I am really sorry that rebel staff are subjected to irresponsible and dangerous behaviour.

Good job Ezra, you highlighted the real motivations of those Antifa communists. This poor guy is working right now because he has no choice in the current system, as he said. His goal is to not work. Those leftists do not want to compete in the open market and work hard to succeed. They want the gov’t to pay for them until death while they don’t have to do anything at all. Their shouts of racism is only an excuse to shut down everyone and destroy capitalism. By accusing their own society of all evils, it is another step in the direction of destroying it. You should have asked him why he doesn’t feel capable of working, of succeeding? Is he lazy or doesn’t he have any talents at all? Who will pay for his lifestyle and his food, clothing, health, education, etc. when no one in his country works for it? He should be sent to Venezuela or Cuba for a few months and not in an hotel.
That’s the problem here. We have brought up a generation of spoiled video gamers who have never suffered, have never sacrificed anything. Everything has been given to them for free and they are not intelligent enough to see the misery they are asking for.

Antifa in Australia, do appear to be a lot more civilized than the Auntyfarts that we see in the US, UK and CA. He at least was willing to have a conversation, wrong as he was.
commented 2017-04-28 13:13:05 -0400
This was beautifully done Ezra, and it shows exactly why they don’t want to talk to reporters. They display how absurd they are and how completely morally repugnant and backward their views are. Your lucky he didn’t use their normal form of discourse, a brick to the head.
commented 2017-04-28 13:08:15 -0400
One of the things cleared up is some people just do not want to listen or defend an indefensible position.
commented 2017-04-28 12:56:09 -0400
Huh? Antifa = pure nonsense for spreading communist lies and domination. Notice how before Sam left he had to get his hard core retarded message across that he and Antifa are not going to stand for the Rebel to be allowed in Australia as he aggressively grabbed the microphone. Give us a break. Why are these Antifa goons so obsessed with Donald Trump anyway?
commented 2017-04-28 12:51:03 -0400
Entertaining! “We’re racist but you can point out anything racist about us…” says it all. That’s the mindset of Antifa and the deranged left. Sam is so bigoted that he cannot see past his own stereotypes. Only with such “thought” can Jay be a racist (or possibly self-hating?) because Sam thinks that Jay can’t see that all people of a single skin colour must share a common set of backgrounds, beliefs, and values.

There will never be a colourblind society as long as there is Antifa. There will never be equality of opportunity as long as there is such public bigotry.

Ezra, I would have enjoyed finding out what Sam’s definition of “tolerance” is. Mine is the ability to allow others to have opposing views without the need to violently oppose or silence them. It does not mean approval of their views, it means acceptance that they can have them. I wonder what Sam’s definition would be?

Edward said, “If I thought the rebel was racist I wouldn’t have wasted my time.”

Exactly! I agree. I cannot stand racism.

- – - – - – - – - -

I have asked those who accuse The Rebel of being racist to prove it and not one of them can provide an example of any contributor, including Ezra, of being racist!

They throw the term “racist” and other insults but cannot provide an example.
commented 2017-04-28 12:40:53 -0400
That fellow, Sam, is really confused.

He calls The Rebel racists and says that he has watched all of The Rebel videos but cannot provide an example of racism from The Rebel.

Sam definitely is racist … and very confused on what he believes.

Ezra, you really did get the better of him by pointing out his own conflicting words.
commented 2017-04-28 12:38:44 -0400
Let me guess, he’s new at this.
commented 2017-04-28 12:38:38 -0400
Ezra I really appreciate these types of one on one discussions. I think there is allot that can be cleared up when people aren’t shouting you down. The truth is they are getting allot of bad information from the liberal media who uses the few ignorant racists they seek out to try and smear everyone else for nothing but political gain. If I thought the rebel was racist I wouldn’t have wasted my time.
