Report on Rebel Media's viewership show what conservatives really want

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, a new report by the Public Policy Forum on how Canadians consume media revealed a true strength of The Rebel.

In the report on digital media, The Rebel was found to be one of the most frequently shared websites.

On top of that, 16% of respondents said that they had watched Rebel content in the last week. Compared to 42% of people who said they had watched the CBC which was the most-cited source, that's fantastic. 

And we do it all without government money or big corporate donors.

Andrew Stephenson,

I have an issue with the fact that Scheer appears to be homophobic. He won’t come out and say that he supports gay people and gay rights. Of course there is that video from a couple of years ago.

More importantly, I don’t want Scheer being pals with Doug Ford and implementing the same sort of things across Canada like Ford has done in Ontario.

Yep – Bernier is completely racist and is essentially the Faith Goldy of this election. So that means people at The Rebel love him.

Alfred Obray,

Thanks – you are doing me the favor.

And again, you don’t know what you are talking about newbie. People here are well aware of me since I have been here since day one, so spare us with the coward talk.

You are going to lose – your future is not good.

Wick: "There is just too much great going on with Canada right now to simply take a chance on a goof like Scheer and a bigot like Bernier – because you have a problem with immigrants and any other number of extreme right positions you have. "

Scheer’s too mushy to really be a threat. He seems like a genuinely nice fellow, one who wants everyone to be happy, less aloof/naive than Trudeau, and I honestly don’t think he would rock the boat for the sake of partisanship. but he also doesn’t rally the crowd.

Bernier’s following the same trajectory as Faith Goldy’s run for Toronto mayor. He’s running a single issue campaign on a fringe issue. Unless you’re specifically upset about a very particular issue, and in a very particular way, there’s no reason to vote for him. Even if you are uncomfortable with current immigration levels, Bernier’s position is rather extreme. I fully believe he’ll get that 3% and not much more.

John, you seem incapable of understanding what people are saying to you. You can only name call and deflect, trying to have a conversation with you is a complete waste of my time. I will not respond to your nonsensical posts. I will spend my time using NationBuilder to set up election communications for my EDA that will be used for this election and the future of our party in this electoral district. We are building our base and organization, our future is strong and we will not quit. You still won’t use your real name to present your views, your a coward, bah,bah,bah.

Alfred Obray,

No, I offer an opposing view. I am not a sheep like you. I have also been coming here long before you showed up, so don’t talk about things that you are clueless about – which have been discussed endlessly with OTHER people here.

Liz,

Do you want The Rebel to be a place where people parrot the same views or do you want it to be a place that has opposing views and debate? Do you welcome Liberals here?

The Rebel’s far right conservative bend doesn’t make them factual or accurate. It is the exact same thing that you accuse the left media of being. You just happen to believe what Ezra spoon feeds you, instead of getting your information from MANY sources and make up your own mind.

There are plenty of reasons for Canadians to vote for Justin again. First of all, the economy is great. Secondly:

- #1 in Quality of Life rankings
- #3 for Best Country to live in
- #2 for Economic Freedom
- #1 in Global Wellness

We’re not at war, have droughts, have famines, have modern-day concentration camps, extreme poverty, unclean water etc.

There is just too much great going on with Canada right now to simply take a chance on a goof like Scheer and a bigot like Bernier – because you have a problem with immigrants and any other number of extreme right positions you have.

Trudeau is probably going to be re-elected, because that is what Canadians for the most part want given the other choices.
commented 2019-08-26 16:57:41 -0400
Why yes Wick, there are many out there just like you and even further gone. I said you were not alone. Its why Justin may get in again. People are shallow, gullible and trusting or is it just stupid? Or maybe nobody knows what ‘totalitarian’ means, or have either never heard of the UN Migration Compact he signed us onto or they still believe the lie that its ‘non-binding’.
Here is a short 4 min. vid for anyone who is unaware of what Trudeau has signed our country onto and wants to learn.

Here’s a fun article just out in a UK paper

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7394001/Trump-defends-Trudeau-against-critics-Twitter-said-submissive-President.html

Here is the tweet of Trumps from last G7
Trump wrote:
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so MEEK and MILD during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that “U.S. tariffs were kind of insulting” and he will not be pushed around. Very DISHONEST and WEAK. Our tariffs are in response of his 270% on his dairy!

Who’s ever side you are on, you can’t deny that Trump said Justin was meek, mild, dishonest and weak. As far as I’m concerned he was spot on.
Why is it that both Andrew and Wick’s career seems be to trash the Rebel ? You both really do protest way too much.
commented 2019-08-26 15:25:49 -0400
Ok John, I see who you are know. Your an individual who does not have the courage of your beliefs and can not stand behind them with your real name. Most of the posters here use their names because they belief what they are posting. You on the other hand only offer negativity and a one or two line snide remark. Hopefully one day you will understand that if you truly know yourself and what you believe you would speak or write it with no fear.

“By the by Andrew, at the last G7 Trump tweeted of Justin almost exactly the same sentiment that Ezra just tweeted. That he’s all sweet and submissive to his face but shts on him to the media, and that he negotiates in bad faith. ’

I’m not sure why Trump’s inconsistency is considered a revelation, but yes, he changes his opinions like other people change underwear. Sometimes literally seconds later.

Ezra isnt’ turning into Trudeau’s “worst nightmare”. In fact, I see precisely one story about Trudeau, and there’s nothing new in that one, just a standard reiteration of a couple months old scandals that have already been covered ad-nauseum and which have already mostly blown over.

Compare to their homepage from roughly this time in the last election, when they had an entire front page section devoted to the election.

Now? Essentially silence.

Liz Rosie,

If you follow Ezra – which I am sure you do on Twitter, then you know full well that people are mocking him endlessly over the Trump tweet. It is all there easy to see – you just don’t want to concede that his Trump/Trudeau tweet completely backfired and he got his ass handed to him by Trump
commented 2019-08-26 13:46:38 -0400
Alfred Obray,

LOL. I thought you said you don’t really care. It seems like you really do.
commented 2019-08-26 13:04:02 -0400
Alfred, Wick has been here as a troll from the beginning days. He has had too many identities to name, I’ve lost track. He is very dedicated. It really does beg the question of who he is working for. Seriously. He’s a bottom feeder and is always chasing and barking at parked cars. Pathetic really.

There really REALLY IS a twitter buzz, you really should check it out Wick and Andrew. You both clearly do not follow Trump on twitter. You are missing out boy and girl. (Andrew is a she-something, identifies as a male on here.) Still not sure if she is just neurologically sideways, or a troll. A bit of both I think. Wick, is just plain old bottom feeding trash.

By the by Andrew, at the last G7 Trump tweeted of Justin almost exactly the same sentiment that Ezra just tweeted. That he’s all sweet and submissive to his face but shts on him to the media, and that he negotiates in bad faith.

One thing for sure is that Justin is going to be gunning for The Rebel big time now, as Ezra is turning into Justin’s worst nightmare.

Why won’t you answer a simple direct question? Is John Wick a pseudonym or your real name. I noticed everyone posting their point of view on this site including myself, are not afraid to use their real names. What are you hiding “John” ?

You’re a hoot Wick. I agree that it was yet again an epic Trump tweet, but if you were familiar with Trump speak, and his New York sense of humour you would know that thew “Nice !” at the end of the tweet said it all, and wasn’t referring to the meeting. "

spinnny spinny spin spin
commented 2019-08-26 12:25:56 -0400
Liz Rosie,

Uh no. Trump was calling Ezra’s comment fake news with his response of NO. He was saying things were good with Trudeau with his NICE comment. Only you would try to spin the fact that Trumped OWNED Ezra like a little bitch. Ezra knows it too with his response back to Trump.
commented 2019-08-26 12:01:05 -0400
John Wick, I asked you before if your name is a pseudonym or real. You failed to answer. Are you a paid troll? I really don’t care, just wondering if you are. If you are, who is paying you and how well does the job pay.

I am sure Trump was laughing his head off at Ezra’s spot on take. Don’t feel bad, your not alone,Justin doesn’t get Trump either.
Please keep sharing this, its epic alright, just not for the reasons a humourless ill informed liberal like yourself might think, but fill yer boots.
Oh the mileage!

Thank you Rebel, your voice is needed and appreciated.

Andrew Stephenson,

Interesting point. If Conservatives are running things across the board – The Rebel won’t have a villain to make clickbait posts about constantly. The Rebel is certainly not going to eat their own.

I’d be curious to see the actual site analytics, which they almost certainly have.

Richard Mann:
I agree completely with your statement. I also donate regularly to The Rebel, and plan to send them an additional $500 so they can intensify their coverage of the Trudeau Liberals leading up to the federal election. "

I’m guessing they’re not going to do that. For one thing, they don’t want to be subject to Elections Canada audits.

For another, I’m not sure they actually want Trudeau to lose. If you look back a year or so, their top incoming searches were for the muckraking on Wynne and Notley, but with both of them gone, so are those readers. If your entire MO is fighting some sort of culture war, you need an enemy to fight against. – and in Canada, the culture-wars-in-principle that Breitbart feeds off of simply don’t seem to work – people despise specific politicians (note how the anti-Trudeau hate is aimed at him, not liberalism in general. Same reason the Ontario liberals went up ten points int he polls the instant Wynne stepped down), but our political policy is generically centrist and most people accept it.

IMO.. Ezra knows there are Rebels out here that would pitch in more if they could. That’s what separates Ezra and the Rebel Team from the MSM Trudeau presstitutes..

I think women are more honest when it comes to the size of their donation. We know how men exaggerate about the size of the big fish that we caught. (I’m not saying Glen didn’t send in $500.; In fact it is likely a sure thing as someone on The Rebel staff might verify it, and no one would want attention for over estimating.)

A few years ago I sent in $80. for something special and Ezra sent a short note to thank me and explained that only around 3% donate a little extra.
If the Owner of the company is happy with $80., imagine how he would feel if 10% helped out, even if they were $20. amounts?
commented 2019-08-23 18:04:31 -0400
I would throw in 500 a pop if I could, but I throw in what I can when I can. One thing for sure, the Rebel is providing a much needed voice in Canada and Canadians are willing to pay for it voluntarily unlike the msm who we have to pay for against our will. That the Rebel is still going strong after just shy of five years is a testament to the value they provide,

Also, we should speak out regarding the non-tax deductibility of our donations, while many other unworthy organizations are granted such status.

In is New York Times best selling book “Unfreedom of the press” author Mark Levin goes into great detail how deeply attached the Democratic government is with the media, citing scores of former politicians and workers who are now a part of major networks which the average consumer would have never realized. I have little reason to suspect Canada operates any differently and is the reason why the media has been assimilated into the political arm of the liberal party. This isn’t healthy for a democracy and is not too distant from what we see occurring within Communist countries or other dictatorships. The ability to not only unjustly malign one’s opponent but to ignore unfavorable information is the most frightening development I have witnessed in recent years and the biggest threat to the last line of defense which is a truly free press. Whether you personally like Ezra or not is immaterial, we should all value his contribution to fighting for freedom.
