(UPDATE: Found!) Rebel reporter assaulted at Women's March — $1,000 reward to find him

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

(UPDATE: January 24, 2017) According to an Edmonton Police Services press release, Jason Dion Bews, 34, has been charged with assault and utter threats.

UPDATE: WE CAUGHT HIM! Dion Bews of Edmonton, please turn yourself into the nearest police department, and prepare for a massive civil lawsuit.

BOUNTY: We received several tips, and are checking to see which one came in first. You will be contacted to receive your $1,000 bounty!

Yesterday our Alberta bureau chief, Sheila Gunn Reid, was hit in the face by an NDP thug, right on the steps of the Alberta Legislature. Here's Sheila's report:

Sheila had gone there to report on a left-wing “Women’s March.” It was basically an NDP rally against Donald Trump. So: the usual professional protesters from the left.

Of course, the event was dominated by NDP men. One of them saw Sheila, and recognized her from The Rebel.

He started arguing with her; then swearing at her; then he said he’d hit her — and then he did.

All while Sheila’s camera was rolling. Here is the full unedited video:


Even more incredibly, the NDP women standing right there, who saw the whole thing, immediately blocked Sheila, and helped the thug scurry away. They sided with the male criminal, against the female victim.

So much for women’s rights. The NDP doesn’t even believe women should have the benefit of the Criminal Code, if they’re conservative.

Even more incredible, a photographer from the Canadian Press named Jason Franson was right there, taking pictures the whole time. But he didn’t publish any of those pictures; he didn’t support his fellow journalist. He actually pushed Sheila, too — and verbally disparaged her.

Violence against women; blaming the victim; helping the criminal get away — all at an NDP “Women’s March”.

Obviously Sheila went straight to the police, who are investigating. But the criminal is still on the loose.

I need your help to find this NDP thug, and bring him to justice.

I will pay $1,000 to the first person who gives us information leading to the arrest of this violent NDP pig. Ask your friends, send his picture around, go through Facebook pages.

And send me all the info, at tips@therebel.media. First one to catch him gets $1,000.

(Please do not take the law into your own hands, however tempting. Leave the illegal violence to the NDP street thugs — that’s not how we behave.)

I thought Alberta was safe for journalists. But not under Rachel Notley’s NDP.

Remember, Notley herself set the tone last year, by sending an armed sheriff to block Sheila from the Legislature. And she ordered the NDP’s Justice Department to send Sheila a letter, banning her from all government premises.

Yesterday, one of Notley’s thugs simply followed the message from the top: silence Sheila at any cost.

And I’m here to say:

No. We’re going to find you, you violent thug, and you’re going to jail.

Send your information to tips@therebel.media

Yours truly,

Ezra Levant

P.S. There is no way I’m letting Notley’s thugs intimidate Sheila. So from now on, I’m sending her to public events with a professional security guard.


Those cost up to $40/hour, including travel time. But we’re simply not going to let Notley’s street gangs stop us. If you can help, please chip in to a special security fund to keep Sheila safe. You can do that, too, by CLICKING HERE.

Thank you.

Back in my old neighborhood,if any man punched a woman in the face he would have been beaten to a bloody pulp.

Just for the record- I do not condone violence, nor did I witness this event- the footage simply looks like the individual pushed the camera from my subjective perspective of viewing such footage.

I’m still waiting for Jeanette Lazar to cite anything that even remotely justifies assault. This was no more an instance of “knocking over a camera” than actual rape would be merely demonstrating an appreciation for one’s female form. Jeanette’s disingenuousness is the regressive left’s stock and trade.

The right wield ideas and arguments. Unable to prevail or refute by rational debate or civil discourse, the left rationalizes unto themselves wielding fists and hammers in the name of “social justice” by which their ends justify any and all means.

Any who interview Jeanette Lazar for employment should ask her to explain her views about this particular matter.

Stupid, Stupid, Women.
You see, this really isn’t about politics. It’s about lack of reason, violence, and thinly-veiled threats. It’s about a bunch of sore losers who could barely contain their desire to blow up the White House because they lost an election. It’s about an organizer of said marches who would impose Sharia Law on everyone in America including the very women marching in the streets who were too damn stupid to spend 30 seconds checking out who was setting up the march in the first place and what they stand for, if she was able to.

You have to be a special brand of idiot as a woman to march under the banner of someone who, if they could, would mandate the cutting off of your own clitoris!"

Jeanette lying more will not salvage what you originally commented. You have slandered The Rebel and its readers, all of it was captured on film and submitted to the authorities. So keep digging and slinging for all you are actually accomplishing is showing how ignorant you truly are.

Unfortunately, it seems the left is no longer interested in facts, do not demonstrate the ability to be rational, apparently lacks civility for anyone who disagrees with their perspective and therefore resort to being tyrannical in their methods. The left has become an unraveling pool of hatred which for them, overrides the need to comply with law. So when Jeannette Lazar characterizes a punch in the face as knocking over a camera, you know my above characterization suits them perfectly. So now we have to ask, how do reasonable rational civil people deal with them? Should they be prepared for rational reasonable debate or be prepared for barbaric behavior? It is going to be an interesting next 4 years.

Additionally, the "5 normal people " you mentioned in the video were five men with signs that said “single ladies line up here”. Even the dumbest conservative sheep would consider that a little inappropriate (and offensive and infantile) for a rally peacefully protesting a man who has spoken openly about assaulting women being voted into political office. You can thank me for adding a little credibility to your slander.

Is it the lip piercing or the Radar O’Reilly glasses that instills a sense of such effete sanctimony? He’s a pox upon the entire luthier community.

Is it possible to name, and at least shame, his feminist abettors who acted as wheelpersons to facilitate his getaway?
commented 2017-01-23 12:08:18 -0500
It was all captured on film Jeanette. Are you related to that male that struck Sheila in the face or one of the phony feminists? I bet both.
commented 2017-01-23 12:08:06 -0500
Well, will you just lookee there? His website (he apparently makes guitars – surprise, surprise) is suddenly password protected and his instagram has gone dark. Reminds me of the walls of my first apartment… they’d scatter when you turned the light on.

Its funny how Shawna Hunt used the full might of the MSM to publiclly shame the FHRITP guys (how didn’t even say it.) Why isn’t City TV and Global airing the footage of the verbal and phisical aguse aimed at Sheila?
commented 2017-01-23 12:01:52 -0500
This article is complete slander and further defines your press as a conspiracist rag for paranoias of the white supremacist bourgeoisie. as much as I imagine this article would satisfy all of the alt-right nazi fantasies about contemporary feminism your readers seem to have, you should retract this statement. I look forward to seeing a retraction or hearing about the libel lawsuit. Either way maybe you should be more concerned with actual issues instead of posting footage of someone knocking over a camera at a protest.

This is a stunning and shocking incident that exposes Liberalism as the new religion. The left-wing liberal devotees embrace their tenets of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism with religious fervor and unparalleled arrogance. They are zealots and viciously attack anyone with an opposing point of view. It is sad and dangerous that principles of free speech are no longer respected as foundational to democracy. Liberalism’s dogma preaches tolerance and civil rights but like any orthodoxy is tyrannical in its demand for conformity. Liberals can only tolerate people who look different from themselves – they are unwilling to tolerate anyone who thinks differently from themselves. The left-wing liberal lemmings in this video have surrendered their critical thinking capabilities to the cultish conformity of their new religion.

The Rebel should also go after the NDP as the organizers of this violent rally and the ‘lady’ who, obviously acting in some official capacity, assisted the ‘perp’ in his escape. The left needs to learn that the laws apply to everyone not just their political enemies and what better way to teach them that lesson, than by bankrupting them?

@ C M – “So a female reporter is assaulted by a male at a women’s march against violence and the feminists protect the male and help him escape all because of what new organization Shelia works with.”

Yup. That about sums it up.

Also, regressive left trolls that have also posted on this stream, don’t think you would be excused from such an investigation.. Police would look at you as being provocateurs.
commented 2017-01-23 10:14:39 -0500
Sheila, I am glad to see you know who he is. I eagerly await legal action against this frightened little cuck.
commented 2017-01-23 10:13:26 -0500
I posted back around page 7 that if the guy is found, the EPS will find some way to blame Sheila for provoking the regressive socialist, Coward for short as cowardice and socialism are synonyms. If the EPS does actually charge Coward with assault, then the courts will find a way to let Coward off because hitting women is Coward’s way of legitimate, democratic protest guaranteed in Papa Doc’s charter.

Others have posted similarly, which shows how much faith the populace has in the Canadian legal system.

HOWEVER, another thought has crossed my mind. What if Coward’s lawyers use this page as evidence of on-line bullying of their client? Of course, Coward will walk. But, the MSM will make the story about Rebel bullies, ignoring that it was a regressive bully action by Coward that brought out the pent up anger. Also, a court order that The Rebel release its subscription list with supporting documentation, for police investigation. So like the old scouting motto, when scouting used to mean something valuable, Be Prepared.
