Trudeau is bringing back the internet censorship section of Human Rights Act — and guess which side Scheer's Conservatives are on?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Censorship is coming back to Canada. Now, you knew that. But it’s also coming back in a very specific, symbolic way:

Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, the Internet censorship provision that was abolished when Stephen Harper was prime minister in 2013 — that censorship provision is now being studied by Trudeau’s government.

I can assure you they will revive it. In 2013, every Liberal MP (and every NDP MP) except one voted to save Section 13. So now that the Liberals are in power, of course they'll bring it back.

TONIGHT I'll remind you what happened when Section 13 was the law of the land, including my own experience with it, when I was persecuted for publishing the so-called "Danish cartoons" of Mohammed in my old magazine. This law had a 100% conviction rate — because, as I'll explain, it was impossible NOT to be found guilty, as the law was written.

The law was also used against Mark Steyn, and he'll be one of those testifying on Parliament Hill tomorrow, against the Liberals' attempts to bring it back.

A lot of Muslim pressure groups have been invited by the Liberals to argue for this censorship.

And one of the pro-censorship lobbyists they brought in was named Faisal Khan Suri, a Muslim lobbyist from Alberta.

During his testimony, Faisal Suri linked hate with murder; and he specifically linked murder to conservatives. 

And a Conservative on the Justice Committee, Michael Cooper, didn’t like that much.

He said the witness should be ashamed of himself. and I thought it was very effective for Cooper to read into the record what the terrorist in New Zealand said — because Suri said the terrorist was a conservative; the terrorist said very clearly that he was not. I thought that was important and useful.

But course the rest of the MPs, all the Liberals, had a freak-out. They’re not used to a Conservative fighting back.

As for Andrew Scheer, he’s not a fighting back kind of Conservative himself, is he? fired him from the committee where he was co-chair, and obiovusly ordered him to apologize, but it sounded more like a hostage message.

Now the world knows: if you smear Scheer or any of his team or staff or anyone near him, he’ll panic. He’ll literally fire the vice chair of a committee because, well I’m not even sure why.

I haven’t seen the Conservatives say a word against bringing back Section 13, or about Trudeau's plans to ban “fake news” from Facebook, or about free speech or censorship at all, actually.

I think the censorship rules will be rammed through without opposition. Andrew Scheer believes that if he just stays quiet,  he’ll sail into victory in October's election.

I think he’s wrong.

And I think worse than that, letting his enemies make him fire his own loyal soldiers?

Well, I think we’ve just seen a quick glimpse at a dire weakness that I’m sure his enemies will exploit mercilessly...

NEXT: Marc Morano of Climate Depot joins me to talk about Trudeau's plan to declare a "climate emergency". 

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Other than Warren Kinsella and Richard Warman who actually intends to invoke it?

I have never seen The Rebel comments so divided on the Oct. Election. All would be solved if Bernier became CPC Leader, as was voted for if all the votes were counted.

Yeah Jamie…something like that…maybe blatant cowardice might morph into less blatant cowardice….

As we know, Trudeau has his sights set on his next job – a seat at the top table of the United Nations. He wants to be a part of implementing the UN global supranational world government. With this goal in mind, it is easy to understand Trudeau’s policies and the endless handouts to ‘worthy’ global causes. All these moves are designed to burnish his credentials for a UN career.

“I voted for Mad Max to be leader of the CPC, but you have to do a reality check, Max hasn’t caught on. I’m hoping that Smilin’ Andy is picking his battles and has chosen not to fight this one preferring to save his ammo for the bigger fight…..”

Holy mackerel, ROBERT. It seems like you’re hoping that blatant cowardice might morph into guts and virtue.

Bernier or bust.

I would rather see MAY, who is not fit to oversee her breakfast. At least then the destruction would be fast. If we cannot turn this thing around this election cycle, a slow death until the next one is the last thing we need. Bring it on so it blows up big. Maybe that is what Canada needs.
So bring it on, its either Bernier or May as far as I am concerned.

The ‘apology’ is simply nauseating. If Cooper had a backbone he would walk away from the CPC. Good for him for his initial comments, shame on him for conceding.

Andrew Scheer is a disgusting boot licker, playing dictator in service to those who would, and apparently are, taking this country down.

Maybe it is time for Bernier to ‘catch’ on.

There is no fixing Andrew Scheer and I hope people realize that before they waste their vote on him. Everyone knows that there is only one man up for the job"

The only one up for the job isn’t a man at all. Calling the others mediocre would be a compliment to them. There’s a reason May is the only one with a net-positive rating.

Scheer is a Liberal in almost every way. We have the extreme left NDP, the far left Liberals and that ignorant ass Scheer swimming left of centre. How depressing.”

Your political scale is miscalibrated. By definition, the political centre is roughly in the middle of where Canadians lie,. You can’t be 90% left of centre. . If you look at present vote intent, it’s circa 5-35-30-15-10 for PPC-CPC-Lib-NDP-Green. If you put the midpoint in there it would lie in the Liberal vote pool.

How far depends on where you put the Greens, by economic policy they are probably somewhat right of the Liberals, and comparable socially. If so, that puts the Greens on the Right and pushes the midpoint to near the Lib/Green boundary. If you consider the Greens Left, then the bluer LIberals are actually on the political Right.

Perhaps by the standards of 30 years ago (or American standards, for that matter) the current CPC is “liberal” Certainly Scheer would give Paul Martin a run for his money. But, standards change and by present standards they are well right of centre.

Vote for Andrew turncoat? When pigs fly. I could not even force myself to do it anymore.

I am so disgusted with Andrew Scheer I am going to vote Liberal just for spite.

I wonder who will be Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s, globalist master’s first victims of this Section 13 resurrection and the authoritarian fascist agenda it represents…I’m certain he has some of us in mind!
Why was the so-called BC Human Rights Tribunal recently resurrected after 15 years, by Horgan’s NDP/Greeny ‘coalition’?
As for Smilin’ Andy…I just left a voicemail at my (Conservative) MP’s office reiterating my huge disappointment with Andy’s non-action and/or the Conservative’s left-of-centre ‘policies’, and the huge mistake Andy and his Masters (who ever they are) made in first chastising and then firing the honourable and correct MP Cooper for doing the right thing and standing up to the aggressive Islamofascist bullying and lies…although, I’d like to hear Cooper’s explanation of why he apologised!

Authoritarian fascism is stalking this country…right under your noses…
Hello, Canada?!

I just despise Trudeau and would hate to see him get another term. Scheer does not seem to bring any improvements to the table. Scheer is a Liberal in almost every way. We have the extreme left NDP, the far left Liberals and that ignorant ass Scheer swimming left of centre. How depressing.
commented 2019-06-04 10:52:07 -0400
Maybe it is time to go after conservative MP’s and tell them to switch over to Bernier"s party if they have any sense!

Andrew is so disappointing.Thats why I’m rooting for Maxine berniers people party to do well in the upcoming election.

Don’t get me wrong, I voted for Mad Max to be leader of the CPC, but you have to do a reality check, Max hasn’t caught on. I’m hoping that Smilin’ Andy is picking his battles and has chosen not to fight this one preferring to save his ammo for the bigger fight. However, I can’t strongly disagree with anyone who derides this hope. The sad fact is Smilin’ Andy is the only gopher we have in this hunt.
😒🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️😒

There is no fixing Andrew Scheer and I hope people realize that before they waste their vote on him. Everyone knows that there is only one man up for the job. I wager that even those who were thinking of moving over to Scheer because they were embarrassed with Justin’s antics will now stay where they are. Voting for Scheer is a losing game as far as I am concerned. He is the a**h*le splitting the vote if you ask me.

What does it say about this nation when both of the leaders of the two main parties are Marxists. It is terrifying. I only see one way out. Two actually, but leaving my country really goes against my grain.

“Maybe Smilin’ Andy might stiffen his resolve if he gets elected as Jason Kenney seems to have. "

And maybe I’ll get to be the first Protestant Pope.

One more of Smilin’ Andy’s policies that make sense, is the proposal to establish a trans-Canada energy corridor in order to promote Canadian energy independence. Will he follow through? Maybe Smilin’ Andy might stiffen his resolve if he gets elected as Jason Kenney seems to have.

“If Scheer does, by some miracle, get in, I’m afraid he’ll just be another ‘Joe Who’.”

Not quite, JAN.

Scheer will go down in history as the guy who made Joe Clark look like Rambo.

I may be splitting hairs, but the Muslim guy referred to the Quebec mosque shooting and Cooper referred to the New Zealand mosque shooting. So I get the point about attacking conservatives for hate, which is nonsense, but both Ezra and Cooper seem to be using the New Zealand shooter’s testimony to refute Bissonette’s motives.
Does anybody get my point? It is important to make sure that we don’t mix these things up. The Muslim guy is still a jerk!
