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. I’m your host, David Menzies.
* What a turn of events! It looked like Jussie Smollett was going to be doing some time in the slammer for that outrageous hoax he masterminded. But then, all charges were dropped.
Amanda Head will explain why it’s very convenient to have friends in high places these days – and why this story is far from over.
* Are you transphobic? If you’re not sure, you can take the transphobia quiz in a new book called, “Transphobia – Deal With It and be a Gender Transcender.” Did I mention that the propaganda in this book is being foisted on 11-year-old kids in Nova Scotia schools?
Keean Bexte has all the unbelievable details.
* Our resident trouble-maker, Sheila Gunn Reid, has been criss-crossing Alberta with her Stop Notley signs. Judging by the size of the crowd that greeted her in Nisku, and what they had to say about why many of them drove so far to get their sign, it would appear major regime change will occur in the weeks ahead.
* And finally letters. I’ll share some of your responses regarding my brief interview with Jordan Hunt, that Toronto male feminist who seems to have a fetish for physically assaulting women who espouse opinions that… trigger him. Spoiler alert: he didn’t lay a hand on me during our encounter. I wonder why?
