Conservatives attempt to connect the dots and to try to get the whole picture. The left grab onto talking points, actions are directed by feelings and ‘concepts’. No realistic problem solving is involved.. They are fired by what ‘should be’ and mistake it for something that can be reasonably accomplished.
Bottom line, the left thinks socialism is a good thing, and Conservatives know it always fails, because the world has been there so many times before. We’ve seen it. What’s not to understand.
The right try to learn from their mistakes, the left keep repeating theirs because they are determined it SHOULD be that way. They don’t consider them mistakes, and force all sorts of badly thought out robberies and thefts on the money producers to sustain their fairytale utopia. Then it crashes and burns, as it always has.
The right is right because they are right.

The left just don’t get it do they. Maybe the following might help them.

I just saw Ezra’s thread on Mohamed Fahmy. He called him a Canadian of convenience. HOW SO TRUE. Do you guys remember the social shit storm(thank-you Sheila Gunn Reid) that Trudeau and Mulcair bestowed upon PMSH for not doing enough for Mohamed Fahmy. Oh how unpatriotic Harper was for not looking out for Canadians abroad. And the CBC played this fiddle to the max.
If the CBC, Mulcair and Justin made such a big stink about this Canadian. THEN WHY IS HE WAVING AN EGYPTIAN FLAG? A Canadian of convenience indeed. The left just doesn’t see this

Then we get the idiot retard, Jimmy DUH Silva, who proclaims that we are a “Warrior Nation”. He is probably too stupid to see the insult to our Veterans and Troops. Keith Barnes and Bravo Zulu, you guys are true heroes and this Canadian thanks you for your services. If Mulcair’s ideology was implemented during the second world war. We would all be speaking German today. “Warrior Nation” my ass.

So why doesn’t Justin and Mulcair waive an Egyptian flag when they are campaigning? Imagine a soldier going to battle and he has Mohamed Fahmy(waiving his Egyptian flag) to his left and Jimmy Duh Silva to his right? Oh boy.

If this kind of left wing naivety comes into power. Cathy Rochford, Sharia Law may be inevitable in Canada. I sure hope Canada’s compassion, tolerance and generosity is not being laughed at by the people who are receiving them.

Our leftist ‘progressive’ trolls are probably well-versed in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and engaging in agitprop (abbreviated from Russian agitatsiya propaganda). Thus, they are here primarily to disrupt, engage in foul name-calling, ad hominem attacks, and, most importantly, taking people off on useless, wasteful, unproductive rabbit trails – nothing constructive, but destructive. One thing the trolls hate is hearing the truth. I value the humour, common sense, insights and general equipping provided by many others on this site, which includes the provision of new information through articles and videos that are brought forward. The trolls, however, as is their purpose, disrupt this and their ultimate success would be to cause so much disruption that most people would get fed up and just leave the site because of all the useless clutter. One of the trolls below as much as openly revealed that to be one of his primary objectives!: “The less batshit crazy conservatives that I have to deal with – the better”.
They may not go away if ignored, but they will soon tire of being ignored and find themselves talking to one another or nobody in particular.
Nothing of value is gained from engaging the trolls. A few weeks ago, I posted a tip for those desperately trying to reason with unreasonable people. I found this article “How To Reason With Unreasonable People”:
I expected a fairly extensive answer, because, seriously, trying to reason with an unreasonable person is a waste of time and very frustrating. The answer provided was relatively simple and logical: You don’t! You will find yourselves dragged into the gutter of the left-wing moonbat’s shit. (According to the Urban dictionary, “Moonbat (n) = Irrational and mentally unstable persons of a decidedly liberal political affiliation.” As seen on a poster, “I reject your reality and substitute my moonbat mantra.”)
Consider what Maurice has to say on this matter “Here we go again. Come on, guys and gals, don’t get suckered into this… please! You’re better than that…There’s no need to degrade one’s self by catering to the lowest common denominator, just skip over the post and move on to the next one. That way the comment section won’t get so cluttered.”
I once before suggested that anyone taking the troll bait and thereby waste their time engaging with the trolls would commit to making a monetary contribution ($10?, $50?) to The Rebel each time they engaged with a troll. That person would afterwards post a comment that a contribution was made to support The Rebel. That would really grate the trolls that their posted nonsense would have such an outcome to benefit The Rebel, which they hate. General comments specifically about the trolls, for example explaining their modus operandi, could be excluded, as long as there is no direct engagement. They would soon get tired wasting their time talking to themselves and having no effect.

Awesome video and pretty much sums it up in a very concise way… as expected and predicted here by some of the original posts The Lefts age old response was summed up with what we have come to expect as a response from the left… It’s tough being Right all the time

You forgot to include islamophobe you fucking idiot. You are a doctor, right? LIAR!
commented 2015-10-01 00:52:57 -0400

You mean when I undeniably proved that you a liar, homophobic and a bigot? Yep – good times for me.
commented 2015-10-01 00:51:30 -0400
Since I am not a troll – I won’t go away if you ignore me. In fact, I want you to ignore me and told many of you to do exactly that if you don’t like what I have to say. The less batshit crazy conservatives that I have to deal with – the better.
commented 2015-09-30 23:22:22 -0400
I tried for a long time Maurice. Eventually I have in to temptation. I’ll try harder (but it feels so good when I win)
commented 2015-09-30 23:12:04 -0400
Actually, Liza and Peter, leftist commentary and ad-hominem attacks are never a problem if you don’t read them. They only become bothersome once you know what they say. For that to happen, you have to read them. Don’t read them and they won’t bother you.
commented 2015-09-30 22:28:57 -0400
Maurice, you know I admire you because you’re a better man than me. I struggle to allow leftists to dominate and degrade reasonable conservatives to the point that pacifism is surrender. I just want to back my fellow patriots
commented 2015-09-30 21:40:28 -0400
Its good advice Maurice, however eventually the aggravation spills over and you have to smack at that(those) persistent deer fly(flies).
The thought of getting the result you spoke of is a motivator to try harder though.
commented 2015-09-30 21:23:32 -0400
I think MAURICE POTVIN may be onto to something with his last post – In simpler words for other rebels “Just Ignore Me, and maybe I’ll go away” It would be nice for a change to stick to the news story at hand instead of wasting so much time and energy hurling insults and having hissy fits towards certain individuals on this and other forums just because we support left of center political ideas. Worth repeating I am a huge radio fan of right wing media pundit Dennis Prager and I tune into his show daily on Chicago’s AM 560 “The Answer” This would explain my interest in Ezra Levant, the Rebel Media and why I enjoy sharing my views here in response to certain issues with alternative ideas and arguments.

Also worth mentioning that what Mr Dennis Prager says on radio will often become a news item on TheRebel weeks later… I’m not surprised there is a right wing University named after Prager …. Imagine one day seeing a Levant College someday in Canada – indoctrinating future right wing pundits…

Here we go again. Come on, guys and gals, don’t get suckered into this… please! You’re better than that. In case you didn’t read it, here’s my last post on the Da Silva/Brinkman/Rudden issue:

“Anyone who’s primary modus-operandi in posting comments seems to be ad-hominem attacks on the character of the reporter, or the character of others who post opinions on the article in question, and not on articulating a contrary opinion with supporting facts and data to back it up, isn’t someone who’s opinion is worth reading. Da Silva, Brinkman, Rudden Et al have as much right to post here as anyone else. However, I’ve read enough of their posts to realize that I’m not particularly interested in what they have to say, so I ignore their posts and move on to the next one. But, nor am I a fan of what others have to say when they engage in ad-hominem attacks on Da Silva, particularly when foul language and personal insults are involved. Why debate them when you know it won’t change a dammed thing? I find it very disappointing when I check the comments, hoping to be informed by a free exchange of ideas, and all I find is a “pile-on-Da Silva” fest with nothing but insults being hurled back and forth. Aren’t we better than that? Can’t we all just ignore him, like I do? It gets very difficult to ignore him when most of the comments are directed at Da Silva, Brinkman and Rudden, rather than the story. Remember “freethinker”? Once we began to ignore him, he just went away and never came back. There’s no need to degrade one’s self by catering to the lowest common denominator, just skip over the post and move on to the next one. That way the comment section won’t get so cluttered. OK, that’s my rant. I had to get that off my chest.”

Well, that was my last post on the subject, and this will be my last comment on it, period. I suppose you’re all going to do whatever you want to do. As for me, I’m going to continue ignoring and passing over all ad-hominem attack posts as best I can.
commented 2015-09-30 19:08:33 -0400
Excellent! Well said. I can’t see how this analysis of conservatism and liberalism could be better improved on within the same time frame.
commented 2015-09-30 18:59:41 -0400
No you are not Charlie Hebdo, Charlie Chaplin, is more apt.
commented 2015-09-30 18:25:39 -0400
Brinkman(s) : Thank you for proving Gutfield correct by attacking him, Prager University, Ezra, The Rebel and the majority of people on this site … and your welcome to feed off our effort to improve society.
commented 2015-09-30 18:14:04 -0400
@doug Brinkman – I am sure most people on this site do not appreciate your spamming. If you post exactly the same drivel in multiple posts on multiple columns … that is the definition of spam! Stop it! If you want to advertise your cruft, go pay for it like other humans.
PS I have to constantly report you because The Rebel does not want to Censor you completely.
commented 2015-09-30 15:00:53 -0400
Earlier, I congratulated DOUGLAS MCEWEN for making a good point that a liberal’s knee-jerk reaction will be either to dismiss the video or (I added) “they will engage in ad hominem attacks”. As expected, our liberal trolls not to disappoint came through in flying colours:
DOUG (or is it RICHARD) BRINKMAN: "Prager University…I learn everything I need to know about you RIGHT WING NUTS through Dennis”. By, the way, RICHARD or DOUG BRINKMAN, still waiting for you to enlighten us with an account of your in-depth scholarly analysis of everything that you have looked into convinces you that “that Islam is a religion of peace”.
And from JIMMY DA SILVA, who as a humanist (and claims to have no worldview) presents himself as an elevated man of reason and intellectual superiority: “Greg Gutfeld – known as a complete douchebag…I am very aware about this jackass.”. You’re in fine form JIMMY!
commented 2015-09-30 14:34:51 -0400
Jimmy Da Porn Huckster Silva, once again your comments prove how idiotic and low class you really are.
commented 2015-09-30 14:29:55 -0400
Ah yes, he is an American – so rather than attack the message attack the messenger.

Liberals – says it all.

That message fits in to almost any country in the west.

All you have o do is look at Eurabia to see what happens when liberals take over.

Attack the messenger – after all that is what liberals do. The message is sound and the message is true. So ignore the message – pound the messenger!

Which is why welfare and associated programs are so successful – Conservatives pay for it and the liberals spend it.

At least until we run out of money.
commented 2015-09-30 13:45:25 -0400
Well said Mr. Gutfeld. Truth and logic are the basis of Right thinking , mature thinking.
commented 2015-09-30 13:36:07 -0400
Whether you know him or not, it makes no difference. The evidence of what he said is true and is readily seen in our society for anyone who wishes to see the truth.
commented 2015-09-30 13:27:37 -0400

jimmy-duh-silva is just another communist pig and compulsive liar with his own “pre-written” narrative handed to him by some other source/political party.

Ignore this stupid communist fuck jimmy-duh-silva – he’s just an annoying turd and doesn’t deserve any further attention.
commented 2015-09-30 13:19:06 -0400

I know Greg Gutfeld and the people he has worked with.
commented 2015-09-30 13:18:11 -0400
Greg Gutfeld is a conservative on Fox News for fuck sake’s – there was no chance in hell that you all wouldn’t masturbate to this video.
commented 2015-09-30 13:09:17 -0400
Jimmy said, "known as a complete douchebag "

Yes, I can see how the leftists would think that. It does not change, however, that he is correct in all he said.
commented 2015-09-30 13:05:29 -0400
I love that video. He is bang on! The lefties that post on this website will hate this video.

I think you should be banned for belligerently continuing to misspell THEIR as THIER!!
