UPDATE: meets its goal in under 48 hours (With no help from Paul Wells)

Rebel Staff

(September 12 UPDATE) has now topped the $7000 mark. Thank you again for your generosity!

(September 11 UPDATE) We reached our $5000 goal in under 48 hours! Watch my video message of thanks to all the generous Canadians who donated to


Paul Wells and Tabatha Southey didn't accept my challenge, though. They didn't give so much as a dollar.

Not that I'm really surprised...

PS: It isn't too late to donate to

Money raised goes to One Free World International, which rescues Christian and Yazidi girls and women being held as ISIS sex slaves.

Did you see the viral video that just came out of Hungary? It showed a stampede of migrants illegally rushing through the country en route to the big welfare payouts promised in Germany.

But one news camerawoman didn’t just film the migrants. She tripped a couple of them, including a dad carrying a child.

It’s fair to be skeptical of these migrants — I am.

But seriously — a journalist tripping someone, and of all people, tripping the one migrant who is carrying a child? That’s nuts. No surprise, she was fired.

But here’s the little vignette...

Paul Wells of Maclean’s magazine tweeted that story and wrote:

“The moral divide in Europe is pretty stark. Has Ezra taken up a collection for the camerawoman yet?”

Really? I’m a dad myself. There’s no parent alive who would trip another parent carrying a baby.

I’m against illegal immigration, and welfare scammers, and fake refugees. But I’d support an assault? I’d raise money for someone who tripped a babe in arms?

But look at Wells' opening line: “The moral divide in Europe is pretty stark”.

See, that’s what this whole story is for Wells and most of the media: an opportunity to show just how morally superior they are.

One journalist will say: we ought to take 10,000 of these migrants! But he doesn’t mean that he wants to take them himself, let someone sleep on his couch. Oh, no.

It’s a peacock parade, a contest of moral preening by liberal journalists and politicians to see who can outbid each other for who cares more.

But here’s my point today. Last month, we interviewed Majed El Shafie of One Free World International. As you may recall, he literally goes to this war-torn region, and saves true refugees.

Not the packs of healthy, free, young, military-age Muslim men rushing to Germany for their welfare. He literally rescues the young Yazidi girls who are rape slaves of the Islamic State.

Now, on our show, we publicized Majed’s refugee work, and we told people how to contribute directly.

But we also raised some money ourselves. And one month ago, working with a partner, I cut a $3,000 dollar cheque to Majed’s project. It was cashed on August 13, three weeks before the media frenzy made refugees cool.

I don’t need public adulation for cutting this cheque. If I wanted that, I would have publicized it three weeks ago.

I’m not looking for an apology from Paul Wells. And I’m not disclosing our donation to embarrass him. I’m doing it as a challenge:

My challenge today to Paul Wells is to match me:

Donate $3,000 of your own money to real refugees, and show me the cancelled cheque.

And then challenge the rest of your Media Party friends to do the same, like the ghoulish millionaire Tabatha Southey who said that the dead Kurdish boy is the fault of Canada’s immigration minister?

To make it easy, I've set up It’s on Indiegogo.

All money will go to Majed El Shafie’s slave redemption project at One Free World International for Yazidi girls and other rape slaves.

A senior editor like Paul Wells and a millionaire divorcee like Tabatha Southey can surely give $3,000 dollars. But really, even $300 is amazing. Even $30 dollars.

Frankly, one dollar is more than any of them are doing.

Mr Brinkman….many claimants have issues with Workers Compensation. Many claims go unsettled for years at a time. If this claimant refused compliance with procedure because of privacy issues…..he should complain to the privacy commissioner and the provincial ombudsman.

In any conflict with bureaucracies follow ALL procedures, requirements, and right of appeal steps first…then take the matter to a lawyer.

I was a trade unionist and health and saftey representative for decades.

Making a nuisance of yourself on a site dedicated to broad spectrum political policy is NOT the way to handle this.

I have my own pet peeves and my own menagerie of injured pets in the realm of men’s rights activism and the abuses of feminist influenced public policy….but I try to sing in harmony with the rest of the choir here at the REBEL….and now and then I get the chance to sing a solo aria in masculine baritone that gets heard above the strident shrill choir of the feminists and their castrati supporters.

Mr. Brinkman….STOP DEMANDING CONTROL OF THE RUDDER ON THIS SITE… is insufferably overbearing.

CHARLES WHITE – I actually flagged myself 3 times last week for lack of editing ability to correct an error I made on one comment post – Unlike Huffington Post, National Post, Globe and Mail where commentators are free to go back and re-edit and correct a post – Ezra’s Rebel Media does not allow for this freedom…

Question to all, not at all related to the story, but brought to mind by Richard B’s earlier posts on this story. Has anyone ever been flagged on this comment site. I think we have all tested the limits with each other, severely. However, I have as yet to see a flag. Is it possible that we have a small community of free thinkers, like in the pre-21st? WOW!

What I like about a campaign like this is no tax receipt. If one truly believes in charity, tax receipts are unnecessary. Faith, Hope and Charity, but charity comprehends the whole.

Ezra the moral divide between the people and the elitist corporate media is pretty stark as well – but morally pretentious elites are oblivious to their own hypocrisy – explains a lot of the oblivious irony we see in print and broadcast daily.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The bleeding hearts, all afflicted with the mental disease known as political correctness, only care about themselves, deep down. They are narcissists, only interested in being praised and glorified for their ‘great’ gestures and words. But they are also something much worse: they are traitors, as they will typically turn against their own people, their own country, and side with what is, in fact, the enemy (and let’s not kid ourselves: the ‘people’ flooding Europe now are for the most part enemies).

Did anyone see the story on Breitbart about “Syrian refugees” fleeing Denmark because they didn’t want to get fingerprinted and tracked.
commented 2015-09-10 23:15:05 -0400
If Canada accepts Justin and Tom’s 25000 refugee………and 10% turn out to be terrorist or terrorist in waiting, it means we have 2500 additional terrorist in Canada. Plus how many will end up in jail, or will rape…etc. Tom and Justin do not seem to care, nor any of the media bleeding hearts.

Jimmy – Just can’t say anything positive huh? When do you intend to disclose your association with TIDES Canada and the amount they pay you? I mean seriously, why would any Lefty want to spend as much time and trouble here as you do? I could see you popping in, making the odd comment, but you LIVE here! I read Lefty stuff, like Huff, Globe n Fail, Star, etc, and make the odd comment, but I don’t spend all day every day at those papers. And I don’t see you commenting in any of those places, only here! Cause you’re being paid to disrupt THIS site, not the media party – right Jimmy??

According to the U.S. news this morning, there are 4.5 million people displaced because of ISIS. Barry is boasting the U.S. is going to take up to 10K in the coming year and the cocktail circuit crowd of loons in Canada think if we take a few thousand – problem solved. The real problem is Obama’s faux red line in the Syrian sand and his failure to fully engage in taking out ISIS. No ISIS, no refugees. No ISIS, people can return to their homes. It’s is pathetic that the left cannot comprehend the simple facts.

Was just reading through Blogs and thinking how nice and pleasant they are, then, Pon my Soul, I find Brinkman with his usual attempt at Brimkmanshit. Next I trip over Jimmy the Slick, Hi Jimmy, Sonny Boy. How’s the Communist/Socialist Slush Bucket coming along? It is so nice to see these young Gentlemen espouse their misguided Bull Droppings.

Damien Butler said : Strong Human Rights supporter as well. Would like to see how many from the left contribute, bet they are not willing to put their money where their mouth is. They all want so much “change” and think we should be doing more for the human suffering…but only if someone else is paying for it.

Ahem – I think I was the first political left and citizen news person to contribute to Ezra’s initiative to help rescue young Yazidi girls – I challenge other left, right and everyone in between Canadians to Be The Change you Want To See…

If you want to put a stop to this invasion of illegal immigrants then do this (I hope one government does this)
All immigrants between the ages of 16 and 47 be drafted into as special armed force trained in the art of warfare tought the values of our democracies and set loose on ISIS. LET THEM DIE FOR THEIR COUNTRIES. Because they won’t die for ours.

Mulcair promises to withdraw our forces if elected… was withdrawal of forces that created the refugee crisis and if we stop thinning out the ranks of ISIS the refugee crisis is going to get worse.

Ezra, I must disagree with you on this – the camera woman who tripped up a fleeing “refugee” did not commit an assault but a civic act: she was helping the policemen trying to catch a runaway illegal. Nothing more legal than that for any citizen – to stop a criminal and get him caught. She should not have been fired, but praised. The “refugees” are ILLEGAL immigrants, i.e. entering countries against the law, therefore criminals that can and should be arrested.

Excellent Ezra. I cancelled my subscription to Maclean’s long ago thanks to Porky Paul Wells. I did e-mail him and asked him if he had a sleeping arrangement with Trudeau’s wife. No answer yet. Porky Paul Wells is a piece of shit.

Many people wrote that money is like oxygen to terrorists. How much oxygen can one buy for $150,000,000,000. And the Iran Nuclear Deal was a good thing. Spare me. Let us see what else we can be thankful to Obama for; -A citizen of the worlds superpower, in an execution, gets his head cut off and it is broadcast-ed to the world. Obama does nothing. -Keystone excel doesn’t get approved so America continues to buy oil from terrorist countries. Ezra should teach Obama about ethical oil. -I have a cousin in Florida who is livid about the drop in his take-home pay thanks to Obamacare. He still has to pay for his health insurance. - The middle east is ablaze thanks to Obama’s foreign policy -A great ambassador, and other good Americans, get murdered by terrorists in Libya. Obama does shit. -Russia and North Korea continue to flex their muscles and ridicule America. Obama does nothing. At least our Prime Minister stands up to Russia

I guess left wingers are not only retarded in Canada. Charles Moulton, I would rather be redneck trash also.
