Rebel Roundup: Guests Martina Markota, Sheila Gunn Reid & Ezra Levant

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

Every Friday evening on Rebel Roundup, we get together with other Rebel contributors to review the week's headlines, from the serious to the absurd.

Settle in and enjoy!


* While the year is young, did we just collectively witness the worst example of fake news in 2019 – namely, that story depicting a teenager with a Kentucky Catholic School being vilified for supposedly disrespecting a native elder?

Ezra Levant is loaded for bear regarding the fakery and the fallout.


* Once upon a time, former Edmonton Journal reporter, Paula Simons, was a free press champion. So what happened? Well, she received a senate appointment from Justin Trudeau and now it seems she's taken a vow of silence when it comes to the provincial government in Alberta interfering in press freedom.

Sheila Gunn Reid will explain all.


* In the department of “what were they thinking”, is Gillette’s new and not-so-improved ad campaign that suggests too many men embrace so-called “toxic masculinity” supposed to make guys want to buy Gillette razors and shaving cream?

Martina Markota joins us to explore the question.


* And finally letters. I’ll share some of your feedback on my commentary on the infamous “Tiffany” Moore, that freaky femme who freaked out in a GameStop store over being mis-gendered?

Martina, our generation is becoming so busy trying to prove that women can do what men can do that they are losing their uniqueness.

Women weren’t created to do what men can do; they were created to do everything that men cannot do.

- The fake news media has started 2019 by stumbling from one fake news story to another. Before Covington there was the Michael Cohen story (where he was supposed to have turned over information that would bring down Trump). Fact checking really isn’t their thing. They smear & lie & when they get called out they play the victim. Is it any wonder that they’re going broke? The media hasn’t done their job for 10+ years. They covered up Obama’s past & all of his impeachable actions for 8 years (it’s also when comedy started to die).

- So Paula Simons went from being a journalist to politician. Like many journalists her “work” was an audition for a government post or the CBC (though I repeat myself).

- I saw a picture of the CEO of Proctor & Gamble, David Taylor. If he ever used one of his own razors it was on his legs.

I sure wish this was a bad dream. The world has gone stark raving mad.
