Talk radio conservatives silenced before Toronto election

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Toronto Sun journalist Sue-Ann Levy joined me to discuss the removal of conservatives from talk radio during the Toronto municipal election.

Sue-Ann was a regular guest on The John Oakley Show on AM 640, but recently her, conservative pundit Mark Steyn, and Cam Stewart were all cut from the show.

All three are conservative commentators and their removal comes just weeks before Toronto goes to the polls in the most hotly contested council election in decades.

WATCH my interview with Sue-Ann to see how the silencing of conservatives on AM 640 coincided with their purchase by Chorus and why the media executives who made this decision are delusional if they think listeners won't tune them out.

NOTE: A representative of Mark Steyn reached out to us after this broadcast aired to indicate that Mark Steyn has not in fact been let go from AM640.

Connie Lynn,

No, you ARE uninformed and clearly live in a bubble.

There is also endless amounts of evidence against Faith Goldy – even from conservatives who called her a friend and worked with her have had to acknowledge the unfortunate truth about her, but you only want to be told things that you already agree with.

Sure Ezra’s comments matter, since they have worked together for years. He thinks she is only doing this to feed her ego and to get social media attention, because she is completely unqualified to be Mayor of anything.

Alex Jones is a conspiracy theorist and often makes shit up. I am sorry, but when you claim Sandy Hook was fake and those children who were turned into ground beef because they were slaughtered – were in fact actors, then you have lost all credibility.

Nicholas, you’re commenting on a conservative website? You say I sound uninformed, but there has to be at least some kind of proof in order for a story to be true. There’s no evidence, in fact there’s only evidence to the contrary, of anything tying Faith Goldy to white supremacists. Yet you think she is one. An interview with a white supremacist website does not make the interviewee a white supremacist. A liberal on a conservative website does not make the liberal a conservative. Wanting to preserve a culture and heritage does not make a person a white supremacist. It shows intelligence and understanding, and concern for the future.

Regarding Ezra’s comments about Faith, I will never hear them without a hint about where to find them. And it doesn’t matter, really. Even if his views are as you say, it shouldn’t preclude him from interviewing a candidate for Toronto Mayor, in my opinion.

About Alex Jones, Infowars has been proven correct multiple times, often years and sometimes decades before the truth becomes evident enough to convince the masses. Infowars is credible, enough to be dangerous, hence the colossal push to destroy him. It’s so people like you can carry on, completely safe from ever making contact with the truth. That sounds very insulting and I don’t mean it to be. Removing Alex Jones from the internet will prevent millions of people from hearing him and deciding for themselves.

Infowars is not credible.

Censorship…happening below on all those links I posted on Faith…trudeau is full on psycho mode now Canadians..This is real.

Connie Lynn,

Have you actually spent any time looking.

I am not the first person to bring up the fact that Ezra doesn’t support Faith and thinks this is all about her ego and that she is unqualified.

You will see NOTHING about Faith on here. Ezra thinks her running is a joke.

And yes, it’s true. You seem pretty uninformed.
commented 2018-10-04 15:41:57 -0400
I have not heard those comments from Ezra and it’s probably not possible to do so at this point. Thank you, Peter Netterville. I think anyone referring to Faith as a white supremacist knows nothing about her or is deliberately misleading people (since it’s not true). There may be many reason Ezra isn’t interviewing Faith, but this is a news organization and news organizations professing to report real news should do it. And the Rebel does. I’m pretty sure therefore or at least I hope, that we’ll be seeing something about Faith Goldy’s run for Mayor on this site.
commented 2018-10-04 10:55:28 -0400
Peter Netterville,

Except he did say that. Even Liza acknowledged it. Why else do you think Faith Goldy has had ZERO coverage here.

Conservatives are calling out Faith Goldy too for being a white supremacist. Perhaps you should come out of your bubble once in a while and be informed for once.

Connie Lynn asked Nicholas (a.k.a Jimmy Ba Silva), “Nicholas Conklin, when did Ezra say those things about Faith?”

Connie, Ezra did not say that.

Nicholas/Jimmy Da SIlva is a well known liar who changes his alias as often as the weather changes, but does not have the cojones to post comments with his real name.

Like the usual Liberal he slanders people he does not like, such as calling Faith Goldy a “white supremacist”.

I doubt he can even define what makes a her a “white supremacist” other than the fact that he does not like her politics. I doubt he can even reference any original source material proving his slanderous remark.

The Left loves to call people names if those people do not believe exactly what they believe.

Connie Lynn,

He made it on one of the 12PM super chat shows a while back. Someone asked about Faith Goldy and if he was cover her running for Mayor. He responded with what I said and that’s the reason why there hasn’t been any Faith Goldy coverage on The Rebel.

It’s not a ridiculous statement at all actually. It’s actually been proven using her own quotes and actions. Even people who have worked with her have acknowledged it. You are wrong here.
commented 2018-10-03 18:08:39 -0400
Nicholas Conklin, when did Ezra say those things about Faith? I haven’t been able to find those comments online and would like to see them for myself. As to Faith being a white supremacist – it is a ridiculous statement. Her entire belief system, viewpoint, and vision have been laid completely bare on video over many years. Anyone who is interested can search a bit and see for themselves that she is pro-Israel without a racist bone in her body. People like to deliberately mislead others with the word “racist” or “white supremacist” to shut individuals like Faith up, simply for wanting to preserve their heritage and culture from destruction. And replacement. No one deservers a platform more than Faith Goldy at this time. Torontonians should be allowed to hear her, not disingenuous others trying desperately to keep her banned and hidden so no one will find out the truth.

Billy Howard,

Ezra already commented on Faith Goldy. He thinks her running for Mayor is a joke and is really all about her ego. He said that she is unqualified to be Mayor. Oh and her being a white supremacist doesn’t help.
commented 2018-10-03 16:27:09 -0400
I have no problem with conservative voices, but Sun Ann Levy is pretty awful and often makes things up just to sell newspapers, since the Toronto Sun is a tabloid rag for the most part.

She also completely ignored Rob Ford’s meltdown, because she liked him and didn’t cover the news like she was supposed to as an objective columnist.

She really was a liability to AM640 and I am not surprised she was dumped. Plenty of reputable conservative voices in media to replace her with.
commented 2018-10-03 11:41:43 -0400
They are coming for the Rebel anyways, so Ezra might as well be bold and interview Faith Goldy. Otherwise the Rebel is no different and is allowing the MSM to dictate who will be heard. This is a race for the office of mayor, and Faith deserves to be heard and understood. Ezra should be able to relate to what Faith is going through because Alberta’s HRC tried to stifle him, and break him financially.
commented 2018-10-03 04:07:32 -0400
An interview with Goldie by Ezra could be good for these reasons:
1. More publicity for the Rebel IF MSM attacks Faith for appearing, but will they? MSM may need to stay silent in order to continue to rig the vote in favor of Tory. Attacking Faith/Ezra interview could backfire on the Media Party if “thinking” voters take the time to look into Rebel.Media and discover it’s not the “hate” pariah it’s made out to be, thus adding to Faith’s votes.
2. Rebel viewers and members would give Ezra kudos for biting the bullet and taking a stand for freedom “Keep fighting for freedom”, right?
commented 2018-10-03 02:22:41 -0400
Quit asking Ezra to interview Faith, her opponents would use an interview against her.

A few years ago I drove for Manitoba to Ontario via the US. I was amazed at how many conservative voices there were: Tucker Carlson, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levine, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage. That was just a couple days of driving. In Canada? Not much. That’s why I listen to KFYR 550 from Bismarck, ND since I can listen to Rush Limbaugh whole on the road.

Here we have Pravda (CBC), Izvestia (CTV) and Tass (Global).

Has trudeau’s dictatorship been enforced already? I’m serious!!! Ford backed trudeau with the farce of NAFTA..C’mon Ford..let’s hear what’s going on with the shut down of Faith Goldy! Where do you stand Ford?

With trudeau?

or with

The People?

Is this a Court battle before an Election? How can a Candidate be shut out of debates? With a third place rating to boot??
commented 2018-10-02 21:57:54 -0400
Ford is the Premier of Ontario….is he just going to sit and let this lock out of Faith Goldy happen under his watch?
commented 2018-10-02 21:55:05 -0400
Where does Ford fit into this?

Ron Joseph, excellent point re: a trap to get Ezra to interview Faith Goldy. I hope he does, anyway. The cost would be high, though, for sure.
commented 2018-10-02 21:29:26 -0400
Good points about Faith Goldy, Iaian Foulds and John Stirling. She should be interviewed by Ezra come hell or high water. He’d have to duck a tsunami-sized shit storm, but she should be seen and heard. She has the right answers to all the hard questions.
commented 2018-10-02 20:36:21 -0400
Toronto is only 35 mi, roughly, from the US coastline (58 mi from Buffalo). Radio from US can easily be picked up over that short distance to Toronto listeners. If it were deemed important enough, I’d set up shop temporarily somewhere on the coast and beam Ezra Levant into the new ’Iron Curtain’ city of Toronto, just like when we used to beam radio into E. Europe. Then, you could bypass Government or media censorship at will.
commented 2018-10-02 20:12:24 -0400
OK Ezra, put your money where your mouth is! Interview Faith Goldy.
