Rebel Roundup: Guests Ezra Levant, Sheila Gunn Reid

David MenziesMission Specialist

Welcome to Rebel Roundup, ladies and gentlemen – and the rest of you – in which we look back at some of the very best commentaries of the week by your favourite Rebels. 

Given that Lisa Raitt had to delete and apologize for a mild-mannered tweet about climate change, the question arises: just what exactly do the Andrew Scheer Conservatives stand for? Ezra Levant will try to solve this riddle.

Hey, are you up for a career change? Do you want to earn $200,000 for only 240 days of work? Well, then, check this out: Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is hiring a special advisor on to help out on that pesky Venezuela file.

Just one hitch, though: you must confirm to the Trudeau Liberals that you cherish the odious political system that is communism. Sheila Gunn Reid has all the inexplicable details.

And finally: letters; we get your letters; we get your letters every minute of every day. I’ll share some of your responses regarding my coverage of a group of eco-fanatics that decided to shut down a major Toronto intersection during rush hour recently to bring attention to the so-called “climate crisis.”

And what did they achieve? Well, they pissed off a lot of people who were completely inconvenienced.

And these SJWs also actually increased the carbon footprint in the immediate area thanks to causing hundreds of cars to idle in gridlock. Winning!

Those are your Rebels, now let’s round ‘em up...

Total killings this year in the City of London, (Not Greater London) is 57, by knifing.”

Actually, it IS “Greater London”. That was in Stratford, several miles outside the Ciy. The City of London (the “square mile”) is tiny.. Which is to say, an agglomeration of 10 million people, with a bit over twice as many murders as Winnipeg year-to-date. Or, another way, Winnipeg’s murder rate is about 20x higher, and the culprits are about as far from immigrants as you can get.

Canada has NEVER HAD mass immigration, aside from when the country was first settled and in the process of being built, and it was mostly European and some Chinese. I will not bother with you Andrew if you couldn’t even watch the 2 minute intro before posting. Maybe you should try to watch some news clips at least. I can’t argue with anyone who refuses to see what is everywhere for anyone to see and demands ‘text’ for proof of my arguments.”

Yes, we did, and yes, there was the EXACT same consternation in the past about non-British Europeans. The boundary between “us” and “them” has moved over the years. The Irish, Italians, Poles, have all variously been accused of exactly the same thing… which didn’t happen. Even though proportionally we took in a lot more of them than today, and very close to present numbers in absolute terms. Nothing has changed…

If you have some facts, I’d be glad to peruse them. Youtube videos are not always known for their factual robustness, and I trust Hopkins about as far as I can throw her. If the facts are real, they should be easily document able from their original sources, not just the usual mix of anecdotes and conjecture.

If there are hard data I’d be glad to hear it. After extensive Googling, I can’t find anything that corroborates anything you’ve said, but then again I may be biased myself. Can you provide some sort of keyword that will find such evidence from a reliable source that i can peruse?

“anyone leaning left who was really interested in an opposing view(sarc) might find some info that backs up what we are saying as well as opposing and the middle of the road points so that ‘fact’ checking actually had a chance of being…

Yeah, it’s all a big conspiracy. Rolls eyes. I’m sure we’ll hear more of Spencer Fernando and Katie Hopkins. Instead of … Statistics Canada, or police statistics.

It really is hilarious watching you all living in fear, paranoia and despair, while the rational and reasonable still acknowledge that Canada is a great country.

If Trudeau is re-elected, I hope you already have a plan in place to leave Canada before we are all put into Islamic camps and Canada is DOOMED forever.

Yes, it started with daddy, but what junior is pushing is absolutely radical, extreme mass immigration, in every sense of the word. The UN says jump, whether its migrants /illegals, ‘hate speech’ or made up man made climate change, Justin only asks, “how high oh enlightened masters.”
commented 2019-06-17 14:26:32 -0400
Yeah, Hyacinth! If most Canadians want LESS immigration, it really begs the question, who are our politicians working for? It certainly is not for us even though we supply the revenue stream for them to ignore us.
commented 2019-06-17 14:24:07 -0400
I posted , “why don’t you google”. let that read why don’t you duckduckgo instead, because they don’t hide the conservative hits the way google is now doing and anyone leaning left who was really interested in an opposing view(sarc) might find some info that backs up what we are saying as well as opposing and the middle of the road points so that ‘fact’ checking actually had a chance of being… effective. Its a big internet out there and the left is trying to hide it from you.

déjà vu

Under Pierre Trudeau:
https://immigrationwatchcanada.org/2011/11/10/nov-10-2011-for-remembrance-day-doug-collins-immigration-the-destruction-of-english-canada/
" … the central theme in gov’t actions was flagrant disregard of public opinion by a Lib/lib establishment intent on changing English Canada into a UN in miniature. Polls between 1961 and 1976 overwhelmingly favoured strong immigration restrictions. Canadians told that to a joint Senate and House of Commons committee which conducted a Canadian Immigration and Population Study between 1973 and 1975. However, the Liberals paid no attention to it. …"

https://www.spencerfernando.com/2018/08/21/angus-reid-poll-almost-all-canadians-oppose-trudeaus-plan-to-massively-increase-immigration/
“…Think about that for a minute. A combined 80% say they want either less immigration, or no increase from current yearly levels.
That is an overwhelming majority of people, and demonstrates overwhelming opposition to the idea of increasing immigration levels.
And yet, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are ignoring all of that, and are instead siding with that tiny 6% who say they want higher immigration levels. …”

The trolls Wick/Stephenson came out to play again, adding more lies to their previous postings proving they are here to spam only.

Why don’t you ask google about some of my arguments, opposing views to yours, and see what comes up if you want text. My arguments are a reflection of what I can see with my own eyes and a lot of cross checking.

liza Rosie,

Well then you are clearly ignoring reality – because Bernier is STILL at 3% support. The Green Party is killing him. Never mind The Liberals or Conservatives.

Can you never concede anything that isn’t going your way? Is it really that hard for you to say yes, I would love Bernier to be PM, but it’s clearly not going to happen this time around?

I don’t understand this desire to just deny everything.

London, fast becoming murder capital of the word. This last weekend the kill total was four murders, by knife and one shooting that has resulted in the victim being put into intensive care. No mention of the four attackers that were aressted regarding their ethnic origin. The Islamic Mayor of London is demanding that the government spend more money on Muslims to help them intergrate.

Re: Hyacinths’ comment an hour ago

Bang on correct. Facts to the trolls be damned. They, John Wick (Jimmy Da Silva and Andrew Stephenson) are not here to debate, but to disrupt. "

Do you feel it’s actually a debate if everyone sits in a circle agreeing with each other?

I’d argue the opposite. That productive debate requires dissent, which by necessity will “disrupt” someone’s perspective.

“Hussen is going to start seeding rural Canada, they have decided on the towns and the provinces, they do not include any in Quebec, or (I think) the Maritime’s” The Maritimes and Quebec have their own programs already. Rural Canada will simply go extinct if nothing is done – which is a problem because although technology has dramatically reduced the labour requirements, the hinterland still needs people. And it needs more than it has even after automation has improved productivity by ten or twenty-fold.

I don’t watch videos. They move slowly and spoonfeed you what they want to tell you, not what you want to find out. As a thinker, I prefer written text. Do you have anything of that nature?

“No sensible country would usher in mass migration. Its choreographed seeding, which will grow into full blown replacement as foreigners birthrates outnumber ours”

Canada is built on mass migration, it’s a bit hypocritical to stop now.

More or less the same “population replacement” argument was made in centuries past, as the WASP founders worried over cultural dilution by Irish, then Italians, then Slavics, now it’s those from Asia who are the problem. Somehow Canadian culture has survived, and even thrived, under these conditions, which has indeed survived replacement and dilution of the originanl founders.

The culture persists even if the genetics of the populace becomes mixed. My brother’s married a Canadian-born Korean, they’re 100% Canadian even if not white. It’s very arbitrary to decide that you must be WASP to be Canadian (or pick some criteria, or whatever.) Again I suspect it falls into that broad sense of misplaced nostalgia for a time that didn’t actually exist.

We’re not really comparable to the Old World countries since Canada lacks its own ancestral culture (and deliberately tried to obliterate that of the actual ancestors of the land). It’s always been a mashup of whoever immigrated here.

" Stephenson claims it is only on this site as it enjoys to debate, it is not debate, it tries to slander every reader/poster as supremacists/racists/bigots/phobics of all types etc.."

It’s not “slander” to challenge your opinion. There is no entitlement to be protected from things you don’t like.

Are you a grown man or a pussy? It’s hilarious – IT boy Pete can’t handle a little disruption by those that have an opposing view, because that’s all it is. Show me a liberal that posts here that you are totally cool with.

Hyacinth : Very accurate assessment.
commented 2019-06-17 08:14:42 -0400
Hyacinth,

You mean like how you disregard everything presented to you, because you somehow think the extreme right has ownership of the truth?

Or like how everyone in this thread has completely ignored this link that I have posted repeatedly showing how shitty Bernier is doing across Canada?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D9HTP69XoAE2XJg.jpg

Or like you just dismiss everyone with an opposing view as a troll, because it’s you that doesn’t want to have the debate and you would prefer The Rebel was just a safe space of people just like you.

That is the reality here.
commented 2019-06-17 07:34:55 -0400
Sorry Liza but there is zero reason to debate either “Wick” or “Stephenson” (both known trolls), both are cut from the same cloth and their sole purpose is to destroy all threads and its topic. Giving them something to view or read (factual evidence) is meaningless as they WILL disregard it. Stephenson claims it is only on this site as it enjoys to debate, it is not debate, it tries to slander every reader/poster as supremacists/racists/bigots/phobics of all types etc.. It thinks it is a being of superior intellect using bombastic postings to muddy the waters whereas the reality is that it is merely intent on destroying the thread with its propaganda and its own bigotry. Wick on the other hand is the low brow variety of troll where insults are its main tactic to destroy a thread. Neither visit this site to debate, they work in tandem more often than not to destroy the thread and its topic. The link you posted is of interest though probably not to the trolls, factual information is meaningless to them.

In answer to your question Andrew,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orTAUMMWd-A
Homelands

If the vid is too long for you just stay for the intro by Janice Atkinson and maybe another few minutes, you’ll get my drift. Hopefully anyone who will watch the whole thing will ask themselves this question, ‘What makes me think it won’t happen here, when other nations couldn’t do it successfully and are literally being swallowed up.?’ Hussen is going to start seeding rural Canada, they have decided on the towns and the provinces, they do not include any in Quebec, or (I think) the Maritime’s. Its already bad enough that our cities are becoming unrecognizable, but it is not going to go over well in many small rural towns. Bernier is the only one who has promised to scale back immigration, and it seems more and more average Canadians would really prefer that. Somewhere between 50 and 65 percent want less incoming for Canada. No sensible country would usher in mass migration. Its choreographed seeding, which will grow into full blown replacement as foreigners birthrates outnumber ours. Even if our birthrates improved, it still wouldn’t make much difference with this extreme mass migration from the Middle East, Africa, China and now South Americans flooding across the southern border and making their way north. Most of Europe is damn sorry they were so stupid. Even Merkel has said she kind of overdid it. Europeans cannot recognise their own homelands anymore. Bernier wants to make sure that in 20 years, we can still recognise ours. It is a fair expectation for any country.

Liza among others know that Andrew and I are not the same person. Newsflash – there are people here who are liberal, center left, libertarian and or that just have a general opposing view from the typical Rebel sheep like you.
