Three Rebel reporters assaulted in three weeks: Help us fight back

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

This week, our reporter Keean Bexte was assaulted by a leftist activist while he was covering the United We Roll pro-pipeline convoy in Ottawa.

Keean had done great work covering the convoy all across Canada. They were now at their final destination — Parliament Hill, at a rally that featured many Members of Parliament. Keean covered the official speeches, but we also like to cover what protesters and counter-demonstrators say — often just because they are so amazingly inarticulate.

So Keean was amongst the Antifa types asking them for their views. When he was talking to one guy, another leftist thug sneaked up and hit him.

Help us bring this Antifa thug to justice — Visit FINDTHETHUG.COM

Now, obviously, it didn’t deeply hurt Keean. But it was shocking. And it damaged his phone. And more to the point — it was an assault. Because some thug didn’t like what Keean had to say, or what Keean had to think.

And the cops just did nothing. In fact, worse than nothing — Keean told me that police, who were literally standing right there, told him if he wanted to make a complaint, he should call the police department.

Gee — I wonder where these leftist protesters get the idea that they can punch a reporter and get away with it?

Now, if Keean were a CBC reporter, would the police have ignored it? We don’t know because I have never seen a liberal reporter in Canada be attacked. I've seen them get pranked and heckled, in which case, police actually lay charges. Usually because the rest of the media makes such a fuss about it. (Remember the Ontario Hydro employee who lost his job for laughing?)

But if you’re a conservative? Well, it’s becoming a weekly thing.

Keean was attacked this week. A couple of weeks ago, two other Rebel journalists were attacked.

We were lawfully on that property; that Radisson manager then asked us to leave, and we were about to leave, Menzies even started to say he was leaving, when the manager punched David and Efron, and punched our gear.

And of course it’s not the first time. The worst was when some male feminist named Dion Bews hit our Sheila Gunn Reid — at a women’s march, no less.

In the end, Dion Bews was convicted, but because of a court error, he got off with a slap on the wrist. So we sued him in civil court for more than a year, and we finally got justice in the form of a court order.

It cost us more than $30,000 in legal bills. Bews had to pay Sheila just $3,500, but for the rest of his life he’ll be known as the cowardly male feminist who hits women: I’ve bought the website DionBews.com that will forever point to that video — until he actually apologizes to Sheila, which that little coward hasn’t done yet.

And I’m pleased to say that, today, we filed a lawsuit in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, against the Radisson Toronto East hotel, and their manager David Strong, on behalf of our employees, David and Efron.

We’re suing for just $10,000 each, a total of $20,000. We’ll pay far more than that in legal fees.

Why are we doing it? Because the police haven’t laid charges. David and Efron went to the police station, and filed a report, and they said they’d send someone over to the Radisson to give them a caution.

Swear on TV in front of the liberal media, and the police will charge you with a crime; you’ll be fired from your job at Ontario Hydro if you even laugh. But punch two guys? Well, the police will go by, maybe, and just warn the guy.

Yeah, no, that’s not enough. We’re doing this for justice.

And we’re doing it to send a message to the rest of the world: 

If you touch our people, we will sue you, even if it takes years, even if it takes thousands of dollars.

We will have justice for our people.

Today, I am asking you, our viewers, to help me identify the Antifa thug who hit Keean.

VISIT FINDTHETHUG.COM to share this video, share your tips and donate to our legal fund

I’m going to put this video on YouTube and e-mail it out widely. That’s how we found Dion Bews — we posted the video and offered a bounty. And his friends turned him in almost immediately. Actually, one family member did too.

So I’m offering a $500 reward for the first person who correctly identifies the thug who hit Keean.

We’ll keep your identity confidential. You can send tips to tips@therebel.media.

No vigilantism, please. Just tell us who he is, and we’ll do the rest.

This happened in Ottawa. So he’s probably from there. My suspicion is that he’s some public sector union thug who protests every day.

We’re putting this full video up at FindTheThug.com — so feel free to share it that way.

Go to FINDTHETHUG.COM — Watch this video, share it, send in your tips and support our legal fund

The second thing I need your help with is to pay for the lawyers.

Because the police don’t plan to investigate, I’m going to need $30,000 to sue him, and $30,000 more to sue the Radisson.

If you can help me cover those legal bills, please do. I promise to keep you posted on the case.

This is part of the price of being a conservative in Canada. But I think we have to pay it.

If you think so too, please help us out at FindTheThug.com. Thank you.

NEXT: As we all suspected, the "hate crime" attack on actor Jussie Smollett was a hoax. The gay, black, Jewish performer was charged today by Chicago police, and his problems are likely just beginning.

Pardes Seleh joins me to unravel this mess.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

The Sturmabteilung of the modern age – Antifa, BLM, Occupy, et al – are hard at work for their fascist masters, smashing any and all dissent to the new world order…the uniforms are just a different colour.
I guess we’ve already had our  Reichstag Fire and Jihadi-Justin the hand-puppet-talking-head Groper and his Fake News Media Party liars and paid whore accomplices are keeping up the pressure until either the re-education camps are accidently exposed or the contrived ‘incident’ to evoke martial law occurs and then it’s all in the open and we can see who’s behind the jackboot on our collective throats – we just won’t be able to do anything about it by then!
The MO of the NAZI takeover of Germany in the 20’s and 30’s is unsettlingly similar to what is being forced upon us today…in Canada!

When will we ever learn…
In Backwards Land, if anyone is guilty of such a heinous and despicable HATE CRIME, and should be charged with a HATE CRIME, and have the book thrown at him, and be made an example of, it’s this self-avowed homosexual, black, male, racist, pinko, liar and ‘entertainer’…Smollett.
The problem for me is, I think HATE CRIME is a made up lefty progressive term – like homophobe, or Islamophobe – made up to crush dissent and destroy Western culture!
Since I refuse to accept Zuckerburglar and Facebook’s accusations of HATE SPEECH against me for daring to dissent, I can’t very well condemn a sub-human wretch like numbnuts there – even when what he did IS motivated by racism, hatred, ignorance and self disgust – I have to remember The Golden Rule, and “…forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…”
At the least, from this glimpse of lefty progressive ugliness, lets get it officially acknowledged that more than just White folk can be privileged and racist!

If numbnuts is fired off the show, it’s interesting to speculate how the producers are going to kill off his character…

Ezra, Smollett earns, according to FOX News US$125,000/episode he appears in. Ergo, ten appearances would be US$1,250,000. I guess he was really hard up for money if this was actually a ploy to get a raise. I hear that he has (had) an album to be released very soon. Maybe it was for publicity.

His father is Jewish, his mother isn’t. Unless she converted, he is not really considered Jewish, though some say it doesn’t matter.

As for suing, sue for at least an amount to cover expenses plus punitive and compensatory. Who knows: maybe a judge might see it as appropriate and a warning to all others who decide that violence is the solution to discourse. Also, file a complaint against the Toronto and the Ottawa police departments for not doing their job. For the “officer” in Ottawa, a complaint against her would also be appropriate; seeing an officer suspended or given a demotion might wake up the police force.

Remember how Antifa attacked the 60 year old Sun photographer in Toronto? That was done right in front of the police and they did nothing. Yes, if it were the CBC staff attacked all hell would break loose if the police did nothing.

Charred Remains, more links of interest:

“…He couldn’t understand why in 1953 he was barred from entry into the United States. …During the next few years, Trudeau clashed frequently with the Quebec Provincial Police, published various Communist articles and organized Le Rassemblement, a political front so communistic even the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation – now the Socialist New Democratic Party – refused to join. He applied several times for a teaching job at the University of Montreal, but his Communist activities led Paul-Emile Cardinal Léger to reject him. … … 1963, as you will remember, Trudeau had campaigned for the Marxist New Democrats, and had called the Liberals “idiots” and “a spineless herd.” Two years later, in 1965, Trudeau, Gérard Pelletier and Jean Marchand, of Cité Libre, decided to run for Parliament themselves – as Liberals. …”

I can hardly wait for the part where Frankette turns to the camera and tells us what is really on her mind.

Charred, I think I will go with “I have no love for either of them” and “With any luck this will destroy them both”

Ezra – I think the money would be better spent going after the police. What’s become apparent, is the police have been infiltrated and brainwashed by the left. We need to push the police to do their job, regardless of one’s politics. If you don’t, it’s only going to get worse. If you do, and succeed, you’ll never have to spend another penny suing ppl.

You can sue the police for obstucting justice, breach of trust, dereliction of duty etc. You can also file a complaint with Standards. You can seek a private prosecution against the police as well. Give it some thought.

Inciting a race riot, Liza? If the snow is white that would trigger a race riot under Trump because Hillary lost.
That’s a joke on how stupid the Left’s excuses are. These are the same needle-dings that say “we gas-light islamists” and “shame on us”.

You can only ask what previous precedents set.
Unless you can proove Keean & Menzies wet the bed three times a night from trauma, there isn’t much you can ask.
commented 2019-02-22 00:02:14 -0500
Smollett should do some time for darn near inciting a race riot. Even though it has been called out, the damage is done, and the left will use it as if it really had happened. I wouldn’t watch that show, but it should be boycotted.
The guy is snivelling pathetic loser.

Can anybody remember individualism, people with ideas combined with honor and bravery. Now all we see is semi retarded gangs who like to talk with their fists, doing what they are told and stabbing the backs of people who disagree with them. It used to be ‘Tip Toe Through the Tulips’, now it is ‘Tip Toe through the Minefields’. The instigators of all this started off as Socialists but graduated to Marxism and have a death wish on all who disagree with them. In the not to distant future they will set their death wish in motion and the Marxist Police Force will do nothing…..Busy Praying to Allah.
From God’s lips to my eyeballs.
Honestly, I thought force by force was a defence here. Even for the protection of property.
Now everybody tattles instead of laying a whooper, getting it on camera AND sueing the turds.
I remember seeing footage of a black TV anchor tossing a guy straight in the bushes after the guy tried to pull a vulgar prank. That was the right idea!

I’m wondering what the MSM strategy will be moving forward post Jussie Smollette???…

They are not just going to surrender to MAGA

I predict they will push Hate Crime Stats…and cherry pick anything they can find to make Trump/his supporters/Republicans…look bad…

It’s certainly is NOT hard to find numerous videos of violence against Trump Supporters/Republicans…

The MSM isn’t going to take this lying down…

“It’s not about the money” Well Ezra, maybe its time it was.
I couldn’t donate much this time, but I would feel better about giving over my hard earned money if the Rebel were getting some of it back in a lawsuit. Especially with the Radisson manager. Why not take them to the cleaners? Make them pay legal fees, as well as, as big a hit as you can get away with. It would show that we meant business. Token amounts won’t stop anything. They’ll laugh and figure its worth the aggravation if the money is just a drop in the hat, to nickle and dime us to death. Like a million bee stings. The website and public humiliation is a start. But I want legal fees and damage.
If they won’t stop, we’ll make it a revenue stream. Why shouldn’t we?

“All this wouldn’t be necessary in Canada if the Lazy Bastards at the CRTC would their job.”

Ron, the CRTC and CBC are Liberal run entities, it all started with Pierre Trudeau.

… Take the case of Pierre Juneau, a long-time Trudeau friend. In 1968, Juneau became the first chairman of the Canadian Radio and Television Commission (CRTC), where he led Trudeau’s mission to increase Canadian content over the airwaves. Trudeau brought Juneau into his cabinet in 1975 as minister of communications before winning a seat in the House of Commons. Trudeau opened up a riding for Juneau by appointing the member from Hochelaga, Gerald Pelletier, to become Canada’s ambassador to France. But Juneau lost what was considered a safe seat in the by-election and was forced to leave cabinet. Juneau then moved into the public service as undersecretary of state. In 1980, he became deputy minister of communications, and in 1982, the president of the CBC. It would be difficult to imagine a defeated Tory candidate, let alone one being a close friend of, say, Stephen Harper in 2013, being appointed a deputy minister and then president of the CBC. …

Even with so many things happening in North America, I’m really excited that Ezra and other worldly Journalists are heading to the UK to help Tommy give a Body Slam to the Criminally Inaccurate BBC.
Without Foreign witnesses, the lying BBC and most of the other bought and paid for UK press will gang up and cover the truth that Tommy will reveal.

Some day Tommy may cross the Atlantic and help us shut down the Evil CTV Fake News Channel and the professional censors at CBC.
All this wouldn’t be necessary in Canada if the Lazy Bastards at the CRTC would their job.

About Mr. Smellie, or whatever his name is. Bill Whittle made the remark that his fake case proves, not only the absence of evidence, but the evidence of absence. There is virtually no bashing of anyone by MAGA citizens. That was a great remark that needs to be remembered.

I think you’re entirely right to go after these Antifa thugs. Nobody should attack anybody, PERIOD! The problem is that we have so many thuggish leftists who feel no qualms about punching their opponents. This must be stopped.
