Trump under threat: Who’s REALLY behind it, and why it will only get worse

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you see the attempted physical attack on Trump over the weekend?

(I’ll tell you more about that would-be attacker: A complete loser — except now he’s doing interviews with CNN...)

That was just hours after a full-scale riot in Chicago.

The mainstream media have been demonizing Trump. Then hundreds of people started flooding social media with calls to assassinate him.

Don’t tell me any of this was spontaneous. Do you doubt it will only get worse?

Most conservatives are too self-doubting to fight back. That’s how the media has trained them to be — they love milquetoast conservatives like Joe Clark and Preston Manning, and they hate Trump because he’s not willing to play the sucker.

I support Trump because of his simple slogan: Make America great again. He’s not a sucker, and wants America to stop being suckered, too.

NEXT:'s Joel Pollak chats with me about the Trump divide.

THEN: Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein critiques Alberta's carbon tax plan.

“The ultra right that Ezra advocates is dangerous. Presto Manning is no milquetoast conservative. He’s an ultra right Socred, not a conservative, just like Harper. Joe Clark was, and is, the personification of Canadian conservatism: electable and centrist, with a slight tilt to the right. A true conservative is centrist and diplomatic. That description doesn’t describe Manning, Harper, Trump or the Wild Rose; that borders fascism” – Sean Penson

@sean Penson – I have to agree with you because conservatism used to mean preserving what was great about our nation but wanting slight tax cuts and building that around a slightly nationalist framework and a slightly conservative framework. Nowadays, conservatism is about catering solely to corporations, dirty industry and is completely populist with not a shred of moderation.

In the past, this would have been considered far-right or fascist leaning but nowadays the ideology according to Wikipedia labels this Conservative ideology as centre-right to right wing. Canada has certainly gone down the path of copying the Republican ideology without any semblance of moderation or wanting Canada to be unique and independent.

We should have our own foreign policy, and it should be independent. Canadians should decide and not our closeness to the Americans which launch wars every few years due to their reliance on influence, their dollar and their alliances in the Middle East.

Another important thing to mention is that the Occupy movement which the right despises also contained libertarians, social liberals, communists, socialists, and social democrats. This was a wide ranging movement and it was to protest the failure of capitalism in 2008, which required a bailout to “save capitalism”. Without it, capitalism would have ended. So, Rebel can sweep this under the rug but the problems of 2008 included: deregulation, mortgage backed securities, massive tax cuts in mid 2000’s and outsourcing of hundreds if not thousands of factories. All these coupled together proved and still prove that the system allowed this because obtaining money at all costs is a central part of capitalism in its current form, something which the SUN network and Rebel continue to ignore and sweep under the rug, and they call it crony capitalism when they supported Bush until the financial crisis. Now some are labeling him a liberal when he was pretty right wing by his economic policy.

All of this does prove that the right wing neoliberals just like neoliberalism is general is very much inconsistent and is very much past its best before date.

For Canada, in terms of how to fix it, we need more choices, less oligarchy, and to have money and attack ads taken out of politics. That is the issue.

People think that politicians can fix a nation when anyone can rise to occasion. The mainstream parties to me are the issue and people on here think that seeing your adversary is what makes politics.

Haven’t people ever heard that George Washington was an independent and did not lead a party? Therefore, by that notion, parties are the problem and they should be done away with. Trump is proving the system has no legs to stand on and that parties simply fight to enrich themselves. Rebel probably in their mind wants the right to stand up but they probably want the flat-tax Cruz to win, when Cruz’s policies would be a gift to the corporate and fascist class. The fat cats do not need anymore free money, bailouts or cheques. The average person needs a raise in their standard of living by leveling the playing field, full employment policies, protectionism and a living wage. These are centrist and left-wing nationalist policies found in Swiss political parties and some segments of the Canadian Action party, a civic nationalist party, is for this.

I see nothing wrong with it.

People also fail to realize that our nation has been sold out by free trade, with the loss of manufacturing, lower wages and more debt.

If anything happens to Trump, civil war begins.

First, the GOP must be cleansed of its destructive elements. Then, ramp up the Cultural War to marginalize and destroy the federal government. Guns are the answer; guns are the way to freedom and a better future.

Trump is just sounding this way to win the nomination. The Trump movement is false hope because he won’t stand against corporations and attack the true root causes of the economy which was the too big to fail aspect of capitalism, which is ingrained in both parties, so I have to say Trump is still economically liberal, for deregulation, for tax cuts with no strings attached and is basically for continuing the false choice war on terror which we the people have no say about. That is the issue.

A true nationalist would be for unlimited protectionism, sufficient regulations, small business succeeding, limited corporate power, a non-interventionist and independent foreign policy, defense of Canada, and a true nationalist nation where full employment can occur. This is something which SUN/Rebel will never say, but Trump is simply a by-product of the party he is representing.

Also, nationalism trumps the left/right spectrum and people on here that say otherwise and label me a left winger simply do not understand one can be a centrist, left winger or right winger and espouse my viewpoints. What we have had up until now is neoliberalism of the left/centre/right. We need major structural and cultural changes and this means changing our economic system.

The right wing media thinks people do not know this, but Wikipedia states exactly the ideologies I am espousing and they would rather misinform than teach. Freedom can come in many forms and the right wing neoliberals simply market themselves as pro-freedom and pro-corporate.

The media justify the disrupters in Chicago and blame Trump for it by saying it’s his fault because of hateful speech. They were provoked so it is not their fault.

The media villify the old dude that threw the sucker punch. The guy was provoked by the people interrupting his candidate, so I guess it is not his fault.

I can sign in to the Website but I cannot sign in for the video. I have even reset my password and still cannot sign in to the video. There is still a “Click here to login” tab at the bottom of this text box. I can’t figure out what the Rebel is doing with all these cumbersome sign in procedures. You’d think this information was super sensitive and top secret or something. Can somebody at the Rebel please assist me? I would appreciate it.

what an idiotic statement

This is a technique that Harper could have used.

That was my highlight of the morning and made me spit my coffee out! Hahaha
If you add up all the "absolutely " stupid comments Trump has made, you could say that part is definately a conservative trait.

Donald Trump knows how to manipulate the media. He knows that the American media, with the exception of Fox, will make him look evil. With this knowledge, Trump knew that being extreme in a few ways would definitely get the left wing media to give him lots of attention. When the media trashes Trump, it only made him become more popular. This is a technique that Harper could have used.

And how is Trump not a conservative? Most people that use this argument do not define what being conservative is in the first place. Trump wants the wall, a stop on illegal immigration, a temp ban on muslim immigration, and bringing business back to the USA. Sounds conservative enough to me. And if you add in all the politically incorrect words Trump has said, then there is no denying that he is a conservative.

I hope Trump wins.

You (and the entire team) are doing great work with TheRebel – Canada needs this more that most realize. That said, what is happening right now to Breitbart is heartbreaking. It seemed to me you were showing a slight bias for Trump… that might not be a very educated choice for a true conservative to make… correct me if I’m wrong.

If Trump has to hit someone back he will be demonized for it of course. I wonder why the Black Lies Matter people can attack whoever they want?

Gotta love how these progressive fools call Harper and Trump Hitler while their actions come right from the ol Nazi party handbook.
commented 2016-03-15 00:49:26 -0400
Yes Ezra, I agree. Conservatives are much to soft and have acquiesced to the Left’s tyranny of “correctness”. We must learn from this and never give in again, on any point ever! Trump should NOT have cancelled in Chicago. The police said they could handle it. It only emboldened the extremists!

Trump should start his presidency NOW. How you ask? He should call upon law enforcement to use the up-coming riots to arrest and deport rioters that are in the US illegally! And he should call for the arrest of Clinton!

We witnessed the way the lefty media assassinated Harper’s character during our last election. Now we are seeing a repeat on Trump.had been having a few protesters which is typical until the the pivotal interview in which Jake Tapper brought up the whole phony David Duke endorsement controversy which enraged the black community who then started coming out in greater numbers and intensity shouting black lives matter etc. Could Trump have handled it better. Sure. All sides could have handled it better.

Here’s a highly interesting link …

What is very interesting is that Clinton’s thesis has been suppressed to all efforts to gain access to it. The thesis was released after the end of the Clinton Presidency.

The thesis has been reviewed and it, unlike other writings of scholarship, it does not present any asserts as to what is/was Clinton’s view of Saul Alinsky and his activities. Not the usual scholarly work – more like an examination of a how to guide for social violence, meant for wider dissemination and discussion among radicals?

What a web Clinton weaves.

Penson. Before I tell you to fuk off I have some questions. Do you wear a black hood when you are keying your computer entries? Are you wearing just your underwear in the basement or are you still wearing your jammies? Did mommy feed you supper yet or do you live off 10 twinkies a day?

On the right we’re not fighting back cause… we have a lot to lose , we have a job, a family to take care of, a property , some money in the bank a good group of friends, unlike those leftists punks and thugs that are mostly university dwellers with their asses and a banged up car, so they have nothing to lose except spending a few nights in jail . The left is very well organized and have tons of money coming from unions and leftist millionaires . we’re doomed.

After Harper the Canadian conservatives are finished, unless we found somebody as audacious & upright as Donald Trump there would nobody to vote for in the next elections.
Conservatives as they stand now will never get my vote (dope smoking wicked libtards & dippers would never get my vote).

It will get worse because the GOP establishment (which is interchangeable from the Dems establishment) has allowed this to happen, by leaving the Republicans open to manipulation by the Democrats. The RNC has decided to not follow the will of the party and back Trump, even going so far as to telegraph that there will be a brokered convention. They are showing weakness before Clinton (and Sanders, whose supporters started all the violence at the Trump rallies) when they should be showing strength. The RNC is so limp-wristed, so cowardly, so pansified, they are doing to bidding of the DNC leadership. And even worse, the RNC will not even back Ted Cruz, if not Trump, citing that he is not moderate enough for the nomination. And Cruz, willing to go along to get along, is playing nice and isn’t speaking with his usual candor. Does this mean that Cruz is fearing disqualification because he isn’t a natural-born US citizen?

The only hope for the GOP is that the Republican leadership from the Red States must step up and take control of the party back from the compromised RNC by driving them from the convention floor and out of the party.

And also, turn up the anti-aliasing because the edges of Ezra’s suit against the agree screen is still jagged.
