POLL: Most Canadians oppose Omar Khadr's relaxed bail conditions

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As you know, last week a judge in Alberta relaxed confessed terrorist and convicted war criminal Omar Khadr’s bail conditions.

The judge took off Khadr's tracking anklet, removed police monitoring software from his computer -- and he's now allowed to fly on planes, too.

We set up, petitioning the government to appeal. We also raised funds to do a survey, so Canadians could express their opinions on this outrageous decision.

Now the results are in:

On removing the tracking bracelet on Khadr’s ankle, 67% of Canadians disagree, 45% strongly. On removing the police software on his computer to allow them to monitor what he’s doing, 71% of Canadians disagree, 49% of them strongly. And 60% of Canadians oppose his right to fly on jets — with a majority of Canadians in every province opposing this:

Thank you for supporting our poll. These are the kinds of questions that you know not a single mainstream media outlet would ask. They’re in love with this celebrity terrorist, just like our courts are.

Alex, sorry, I was unclear in my question. For an online poll, what do you mean when you say they “polled at 1:00 pm”?
commented 2015-09-26 16:22:56 -0400
Terry, This is what I wrote 17 hours ago
Speaking of polling methodology,
When I use to watch “Power and Politics with Evan Soloman”. I always wondered why the polls in their “Ballot Box” questions always extremely favored the left. Then I found out that they polled at 1:00 pm when most taxpayers were working. So the questions were being asked to all the pot smoking, mushroom eating, Dizzy Lizzy supporting, David Suzuki loving, EI collecting, welfare receiving, Catherine Porter style Canadians. Probably at some environmental protest where most have no clue what they are protesting. CBC you make good use of our tax dollars

This is the only poll I could find by Evan Soloman. I think it was his last day. I am bad with computers.

It’s pretty basic marketing. Maximize the repackaging of the same product in multiple ways (have you noticed how often Ezra and Brian run the SAME story, with minimal changes, again and again and again?); create multiple revenue streams for the same product (clicks to feed the click ads, a petition for extra clicks, multiple fundraising appeals, and product sales (have you seen the embarrassingly bad tshirts??), and so on.

Thank you for the great and factual marketing breakdown as to how The Rebel makes money off of extreme conservatives suckers.

No Vlad, I was just proving the point that CBC and The Toronto Star for that matter are incredibly popular and that Canadians are not dying for a “news” site like The Rebel.

Canadians are well aware of who Ezra Levant is and I am sure by now – they know that The Rebel exists. They don’t care.
commented 2015-09-26 14:05:25 -0400
Alex, I DID miss your post on methodology. Can you send me a link confirming that sampling technique, please?

“The Canadians who support the CBC now think that they are getting objective and responsible journalism. If they were to understand the CBC’s propaganda or knew that the CBC leans left. Most would want to end funding to it.”
In other words, if everyone agreed with me, then everyone would agree with me. While inarguable, that’s a bit tautological.
" If you agree with me that the CBC does polling unjustly. Then I apologize."
As commented in an earlier response: polls have to be examined on a case by case basis. CBC polls in a number of ways – online, dial out, focus groups, large sample randomized surveys – I’ll be happy to give a critique of any specific polling initiative you’re curious about.

“It’s only a matter of time before Khadr does jihadi, maybe then the NDP and Liberals will realize how dangerous Khadr is to Canadians.” Nah……they’ll blame Canadians for not addressing the “root causes”!

Re Liza Rosie “I don’t give a rats ass what some left wing appointed shrinks and criminologists have decided”
Liza, guess who is going to pay for the shrinks and criminologists? We are. I wonder how much this guy has cost us the past 14 years.
Thank you for mentioning Christopher Speer and Layne Morris. The CBC has put this asshole on a pedestal and seldom talks about the victims and their families. I am sure the Speer and Morris families appreciate you mentioning their names. We can always count on the Conservatives to champion victims rights.

Got this in my email today. Well worth a read….

A German’s View on Islam – well worth reading.

This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. ‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ’but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.’ ‘My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.’ ‘We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.’ ‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.’ ‘The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.’ ‘The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’? ‘History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.’ ‘Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.’ ‘Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario , and, yes, in Ottawa , too, while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.’ ‘In Australia , and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.’ ‘In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.’ ‘As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.’

Re Terry, “To which CBC poll do you refer,”
Because you only criticized The Rebels polling, I assumed you thought the CBC’s polling was just. If you agree with me that the CBC does polling unjustly. Then I apologize.

I think you may have missed my comment 14 hours ago “speaking of methodology”
commented 2015-09-26 13:37:58 -0400
Mancave: you asked specific questions with reasonable civility. I answered them. Spare me the cheap shots.
commented 2015-09-26 13:29:15 -0400
What is so interesting is that the judge relaxed Khadr’s bail conditions so that he could train to become an EMT. But, as we have been told, Khadr is blind in one eye and this suggests that his ability to drive an emergency vehicle e.g. an ambulance might be a challenge. Sgt. Christopher Speer was a combat medic that was trained as an EMT.

It is a strange situation that the career of the man Khadr confessed to killing became the way for him to be free of a bail condition.

Ok Jimmy, you, Dougie, and Terry continue to play on here because I truly believe you 3 are trying to out do one another to see who can get the most attention on this site. My point and many others on here have said it also, you 3 are attention whores. Have a nice day! 😉

First of all – The Rebel is definitively not a popular website. Traffic numbers don’t lie.

Secondly, The Rebel is like The Onion – a very entertaining satire news site, except Ezra is actually serious.

And lastly, it’s always fun to debate batshit crazy conservatives.

“So you give validity to a CBC poll?”
To which CBC poll do you refer, Alex? I give no validity whatsoever to a poll run on a corporate website without a valid sampling strategy, and don’t remember ever, ever commenting on a CBC poll like that. Can you remind me?
commented 2015-09-26 12:04:02 -0400
“who has the most accurate polls from the MSM?”
I couldn’t say in a general sense, Mancave. The bigger private sector polling firms are a little more protective for their reputations than the fly-by-night, “we’ll get you the results you want for a buck” firms. But even the big boys like Ipsos and Leger are still in the business of responding to client requests in critical areas like the phrasing of a question or the selection of a sample. It’s an imperfect art at best: all you can do is look at each specific poll, its methodology and its sampling strategy, and ideally the full range of results (not just the cherry picked finding the client likes.
“The Rebel will continue to operate with or without you.”
Oh, for sure. For a while. With or without us, however, its business model is deeply flawed (as I’ve discussed elsewhere", and it won’t last more than a year. That’s not an ideological prediction – it’s a business observation.
commented 2015-09-26 11:56:51 -0400
“It is tax payers money going to feed left wing propaganda.’
It’s federal program funding going to support a Canadian industry, yes.
Some folks don’t believe that the Federal Government should support Canadian publication, periodicals, arts, culture, media, and so forth. That’s a defensible political position, and one I think many Rebel readers would share, but I don’t think it’s one that most Canadians agree with – not even all Conservatives.

Re-Terry " the validity of an elective poll from a biased source"
So you give validity to a CBC poll? The CBC does exactly what you accuse The Rebel of. But the CBC does it on the taxpayers dime. Do you not see the gross injustice here? $1.1 Billion a year
commented 2015-09-26 11:46:44 -0400
Jason R.," I have followed this case from the inset 14 years ago but know nothing about Khadr’s rehabilition as I am sure you don’t."
I also have followed Omar’s case since he first injured after he murdered Sgt. Christopher Speer , and wounded Sgt. Layne Morris, in 2002.
I don’t give a rats ass what some left wing appointed shrinks and criminologists have decided about Omar’s present threat to Canadian society, or risk of recidivism.
Do you know who Omar Khadr is? Yes.
Should he be walking the streets? NO
commented 2015-09-26 11:46:11 -0400
Ok Terry, if the polls on this site are “fudged”, then enlighten us, who has the most accurate polls from the MSM? As far as I am concerned the polls don’t mean $&it. One more point, The Rebel will continue to operate with or without you. If the Rebel some how cannot continue to function it won’t be because Terry, Jimmy, and Dougie left the sandbox to go play in another.
commented 2015-09-26 11:32:38 -0400
You can candy coat it or you can dress it up. It is tax payers money going to feed left wing propaganda. You criticize the rebel for it’s right wing views. Do you not see how much worse it is for left wing propaganda to be produced on the taxpayers dime. Look at who is the political editor of Macleans. When Justin is taking questions from the media. I see Porky Paul Wells ask a question. And it is so apparent that it is rehearsed and worded to Vilify our Prime Minister. So apparent.
Why is this money available to all print magazines? Is there nothing better to do with my tax dollars?
I am going to start a magazine. It will be called “DUH”. I won’t have to worry about selling any magazines because the government will give me $1.5 million a year. Socialism at its best.
commented 2015-09-26 11:17:01 -0400
Alex, you truly disappoint me. However, I suppose I should be flattered, given that:
“… the insults usually start to fly when a point is raised that folks don’t actually want to address – like, for instance, the validity of an elective poll from a biased source. I take that as affirmation that the point has been made.”

Hyacinth wrote " they suffer from delusions of grandeur as well as that of reality"
How so true. Now they are claiming that they are the reason for the survival of The Rebel. A little arrogant maybe?
commented 2015-09-26 10:51:15 -0400
Alex: I’m guessing that probably refers to grants/contributions program available to all print magazines to support the Canadian magazine industry, such as the Canada Periodical Fund. It’s a reality of living in a minor market.

The lefties, Terry & Jimmy, certainly do seem intent on daily insulting and disparaging theRebel and the people that post here.

They seem to get an erotic glee from attacking over and over and claiming what they say is the “truth” but is only opinion stated as though it is truth. Nothing more.

One has to wonder that if their lives are so full of leftie perfection and purity and all knowledge as they claim, why do they hang out in the despicable non-popular website.

Because like the little insecure children they are, they crave our attention!

“It’s sad that so many believe anything they hear or see, without checking things out for themselves.”
Very true. Why, only the other day, Rebel readers thought they were quoting Marco Polo and Wilfrid Laurier, when a simple google search of the quote would have disabused them.

And that activist lawyer of his that tried to publicly dressdown our PM, protecting this victim. The left do love to trot out their victims, and milk it for all it’s worth. That’s how they continually keep the masses emotionally stirred up. Most people seem to believe anything they see now, even though images are constantly being manipulated, to fit the agenda storyline. It’s sad that so many believe anything they hear or see, without checking things out for themselves. It is why the socialists are gaining ground at destroying our democratic rights and freedoms.
