Rebel Roundup: Guests John Cardillo, Joe Warmington & More!

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!

* Yes, it’s true. The University of Alberta has given an honorary degree to oil sands enemy David Suzuki.

Rebel Commander Ezra Levant drops in to explain the goofy politics behind this bizarre move.

* And is Kanye West a conservative? Maybe, but one thing’s for sure, liberals aren’t happy with Kanye these days.

John Cardillo will explain what all the fuss is about.

* Tragedy struck Toronto this week. Alek Minassian has been charged with killing 10 and injuring 14 others after using a van to run down pedestrians on Yonge Street.

Toronto Sun reporter Joe Warmington will weigh-on this despicable and mindless act of terror.

* And finally, letters. Tonight, I’ll share some of your feedback regarding our street interviews with Torontonians asking their opinions of Trudeau’s plan to export Quebec migrants to Ontario. Just wait ‘til you hear the responses to that one...

Liza, thanks for the reply. I didn’t mean to suggest you comment to bring these people out, they will come out because of what they are, or what they are paid to be. And our cultures are a refined product of many components, but “like” components, not opposites, like lithium and water, but similars, if that’s a word. Again, thanks.

I truly do not comment to bring these people out Common Sense, but I suppose it exposes their lack of ‘common sense’.

I should add to my comment below that there are older cultures which were rich in art and history such as the Chinese culture, but for a civilized, democratic culture where individual freedoms and liberty are afforded, west is best.
I agree with Carole in previous posts. We are not obliged to share it with everyone just because they want to come here.

Liza, you are so right with that, and the wrong Jay Kelly is baiting, just another pathetic troll alias, probably Gordo Steele, but who knows, the money is endless from the left, but there efforts are so transparently pathetic… Carry on Liza, I love it when you hit a nerve, they come crawling out of the holes en masse. it truly is entertaining, even though such a waste of space… and they vote.

Western culture encompasses many countries and if it wasn’t the most desirable culture, why does everyone want to go to these countries? West is best. I’d just like to keep it that way.

I like Liza Rosie’s comment: “We don’t Carole. We can be very discerning, ie cultures that are compatible to ours, since not all are equal and some are better than others.”

She makes it sound like she is from some superior culture and has found a friend. Truth is, she cannot give her real name nor her religion. She is afraid to be laughed at.

Liza, as for being vilified in Trudeau’s Canada, I truly don’t care. In my own city, if I have the audacity of saying one word to someone who is impolite or rude in public (one almost hit my car in a parking lot), I have been called f…g quebecois by that new immigrant that we pay 37 billion dollars a year for. Canada is dying, because of many past prime ministers, and Trudeau is putting the final nail in the coffin.

The banter between Menzies and John is very entertaining. David Menzies always gives a good interview. He has a gift for it.

Interesting view of Toronto from Joe Warmington. I hope he is a guest again. I would suspect when the dust settles a bit and heads clear from the shock, more answers will be demanded. There are certainly many questions surrounding this incident.
commented 2018-04-28 17:29:06 -0400
We will be vilified in Trudeau’s Canada for expressing such views, but we must hold onto our opinions, and our identity as Canadians, east and west, north and south. Trudeau may hate his fellow Canadians, but he won’t be there forever. We must concentrate on making that so bon ami.

We don’t Carole. We can be very discerning, ie cultures that are compatible to ours, since not all are equal and some are better than others.
I agree multiculturalism was foisted upon us, but as an observation it seems to have worked out alright until certain cultures joined us and the numbers got out of hand.
I agree with most of what you say. The French and English first developed Canada, but many Europeans from many countries joined us to build it.
As far as each country retaining its unique identity ,I could not agree more. There is hardly any point in travel to Europe anymore as they have been Islamized.
Our cities have always had more of what Justin calls diversity, but we should try to keep our our towns and villages Canadian. French and English. Inevitably newcomers will spread out, we must demand they integrate. I guess its too late for cities, but in our towns they must adapt to our ways.
commented 2018-04-28 15:03:24 -0400
Liza, I don’t want to insult you in any way but why do we HAVE TO welcome anyone from all around the world who wants to join in our culture? It seems to me that Canadians have been brainwashed that multiculturalism is the only choice available. When you say the background of Canadians come from all around the world, that’s used to not be the case. When I go to Italy, I want to see and have a taste of Italians, their culture, their personality, their food. When visitors came to Montreal only a few years ago, they came for the different language, cuisine, the Quebecois humour, etc. Nowadays, they cannot even hear Quebecois spoken in restaurants. I can’t barely get served myself in French in stores in the city. We are losing all of that. I agree with you that some cultures integrated well, but to be frank, they usually live apart, in separate areas, and don’t mix with the original culture, which is normal human behaviour.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Canada should help the persecuted and the poorest, but not to the extent of tits own annihilation. My concerns are useless anyway, since I now see it’s already too late. I’m allowed therefore to not have the same sense of belonging and responsibility that I used to have all my life for this country, since I don’t recognize myself in it.
As for the 2 solitudes of Canada, they no longer exist, since we now have a multitude of solitudes.
Listen to the 1st minutes of this video where a historical sociologist from New Brunswick has concluded that the Quebecois are indigenous to this country, not immigrants like the Left likes to make us believe.
commented 2018-04-28 13:02:43 -0400
We have a strong and rich History in Canada that is uniquely Canadian. To say otherwise is to ignore our forefathers efforts.
commented 2018-04-28 13:00:35 -0400
As much as I love my Quebecois neighbours in the east, nothing irks me more than to have to turn items around on the shelf in stores to read the English label. When I go to Quebec I respect the language as much as I can. We have two solitudes in Canada. A French and English one that shares with First Nations. I want to keep it that way. If people come to Canada they have to pick one of two lanes, as only first Nations can be First Nations. However we must all stand together as Canadians. Newcomers must modify just as I would if I immigrated to their countries. Not the other way around.
commented 2018-04-28 12:53:50 -0400
Believe me Carole outside of cities Canadians have a strong identity. But as the Chinese who stood up with their fellow Canadians in the protests against the insult Justin was laying on all them during that hijab hoax proved, this is not a ethnicity thing this is a Canadian thing. The back ground of Canadians come from all over the world, more recently from cultures quite the antithesis of our European one. Many Asian cultures integrate well, but still respect the country they came to. You don’t move to a country to turn it into the country you left. You come to JOIN it not change it. How is the inclusion of mass numbers of third world people many of whom hate us, going to be anything but a divisive force for our country.

Quebec may have its language but trust me, us westerners have our Canadian identity,traditions and cultural values intact, and we welcome anyone who wants to be a part of that, but not those who wish to change it or us.

One thing I noticed since I’m following the Rebel, the rest of Canada is truly diverse. I’m also wondering what is the culture that defines Canadians these days, since they appear to be a total mixture of all ethnicities with a myriad of backgrounds, culture, values, aspirations and so on. Maybe Trudeau was right when he said that Canada is a post-national state with no particular culture. If there was at one point in time such a thing as Canadian values, they seem to have been completely immersed in multiculturalism. In Quebec, we still have a specific language, strong cultural values and customs, a common history, that define us as a people. And the highest crime for me that the Liberals, and previous federal gov’ts before, as well as the left, are committing with mass immigration is the genocide of a culture that is unique on earth.

does this……

look like this guy?

Why did the court artist draw the killer with a full head of hair with a side part no less? If that is what Minassion looks like then who is the older bald guy bent over the car?
commented 2018-04-28 10:01:23 -0400
We know what Gerald Butts reads from his twitter page, why does facebook destroy evidence and immediately remove accounts when these things happen and how do they decide to so fast? What does the rental guy say, was he told not to speak? Why hasn’t he been interviewed? I want info on the parents, and work mates. Why did one eye witness in a car nearby say the killer was bald and “an older guy?” (Menzies interviewed him from his car window) and the enlarged photo of the killer bent over a police car being arrested, was bald, had a beard and appeared older ? Still too many ‘whys?’ Why are we expected to shut up and blindly believe what we are told? Give us ALL the info.

As mentioned mass murder by truck is an Islam thing. You can’t change that or pretend there is not that link to Islam. There it sits.
commented 2018-04-28 09:59:14 -0400
We need ALL the information and we probably won’t get it from authorities. Maybe we should crowdfund our own P.I. If it had been anyone else, more info would have already been forthcoming. I will not be satisfied until we know all the details of the killer’s back ground , dealings, interests etc. by bonafide school mates, friends and neighbours. What is with the one neighbour saying he didn’t recognize Minassion.?Different guy or had he changed his appearance and in what way specifically according to him?
commented 2018-04-28 01:20:10 -0400
Though I usually spew smacktalk againt the leafs, this week I say God bless Toronto. We really do love you and know you are all us. It happened to us all. We are all Canadian!

I’m fed up with people cutting mentally-ill killers a break. That van driver took 10 lives and endangered at least 14 others. It was a deliberate act. It’s too bad we don’t have capital punishment for obvious cases like him. Those bleading heart liberals have allowed killers to go free after a little jail time, only for those wicked people to do more murders. Maybe judges should be tossed into the same cell as the killers they let loose and then they murder even more people.
commented 2018-04-27 23:38:50 -0400
The Van Driver may not have been a Muslim but his action of using a vehicle as a weapon is really a Muslim concept. In other words, the Muslims scored a victory, courtesy of a deranged psychopath. Mark this one down as a freebie for the Muslims.

- David Suzuki, a former geneticist, made a fortune pushing the pseudoscience of man made global cooling/warming/climate change/climate disruption/climate chaos. The administration of these universities are completely lacking in any connection to reality. I doubt that the timing of this or their geographic location played any roll in the decision to give Suzuki an honorary degree/party favor. Frauds of a feather flock together.

- I don’t think Kanye West is a conservative. He likes to be outrageous & stir things up & get attention. When he got blowback from the left he wasn’t going to be intimidated by it. He was going to double down. That’s exactly what he did. That’s exactly what he’ll continue to do. The left opened up a Pandora’s Box here.

- I’m old enough to remember when Toronto was called “Toronto the good”. We’re still waiting to get all the facts behind this van attack. It’s starting to look like he was a deranged, cowardly individual. When the government withholds information on something like this it’s easy to believe it was an Islamic attack since that is the governments’ standard practice. I can’t imagine what the families of the victims went through & are going through here.

- Shipping fake refugees to Ontario won’t stop them from flowing into Quebec. Now the people of Ontario will just start getting pissed off as well. BTW – I filed my tax return a while back because I knew I’d be getting a return & wanted to make sure I got in in my bank account before the government had a chance to change its’ mind.
