Rebel Media’s Freedom Rally Was Bonkers
"It's good to be in a room with severely normal people," Kellie Leitch told the crowd
Rebel Media‘s “Freedom Rally” at Canada Christian College in Toronto on February 15 was as chilling as you can imagine.
Some of the hundreds in attendance did not hold back their support for the conservative speakers. Even more troubling, at least one even gave what appeared to be an enthusiastic Nazi salute.
The speaker list included Conservative leadership candidates Kellie Leitch, Chris Alexander, Pierre Lemieux, and Brad Trost, along with the Rebel’s Ezra Levant and Faith Goldy.
Check out our video coverage:
Disgusting “journalism”, Torontoist.
Says the Milo supporter who frequents Breitbart but what do the rest of us know.
Very little. And it’s called a supporter of free speech – it USE to be a liberal value. I was THERE and the depiction of that occurred and what actually occurred are two different things. Not to mention the photo used on Facebook for the article of the woman with her hand raised to make it seem as though she was doing a “Nazi salute”. And also omitted the fact that freedom and protection for Muslims, mosques, and freedom of worship got a standing ovation. If you can’t see how pathetic the leftist have become, it’s time to do some soul searching.
In THIS country, we don’t have the right to hate speech.
But, again, what do we know.
Show me the HATE speech.
Canada has laws against hate speech that promote discrimination and violence and they’re enforced. I guarantee you that if there was hate speech, they’d be charged accordingly.
Just because it doesn’t fit a leftist agenda doesn’t make it hate speech. Criticizing an ideology is not hate speech and that’s something the left knows well considering their love of criticizing the easy religious target of Christianity.
Very bad taste to up-vote your own posts.
Milo doesn’t do hate speech?
Breitbart isn’t hate speech?
Ur known by the company you keep.
you sound like an antifa terrorist
Hmmm, tell me, is the Trump Muslim Ban hate speech?
No. It’s called security of a nation. You know Muslims aren’t a race right?
How does banning Muslims make America secure?
You can only hate races?
To answer your second question first. No. To answer your first question I’ll just say FRANCE right now. Or are the muzzies just having a peaceful demonstration. You may want that shit here but me and mine do not.
So… America is made safe because France? Are you sure you know what we are talking about here?
You do know that there are Muslims in Canada, can you show me the riots?
Yes I know there are Muslims here unfortunately. What I am saying is when France let all the Muslims in they never thought what is happening would happen. America is made safe by learning from Europe and VETTING https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/55a0954095a4ab753bfd0da1c137a7c5822c73850ac3a165677e5d49997a0378.jpg them more closely. And if your in T.O. when the Muslim population is over 12% well good luck getting out.
Why unfortunately? How has any Muslim made your life worse?
What is “Vetting”? What do you think happens when new immigrants / refugees come here? You think there is no background or other checks?
Unfortunately because their religion is oppressive. And as for vetting Canada is a joke. “Are you a terrorist”? “No”. “Then welcome to Canada”. Here is a pic of how well we Vet. for terrorists. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1900638e445cb358961e5315dd1c6eaf198eaf7ad79706cb5089f15aa3b3cb67.png
Huh? Who is oppresed? Have you been oppressed by Muslims? Do you know anyone in Canada who is?? And if you really think that is how the background checks go then it’s pretty obvious you have no idea what you are talking about.
Is it possible you just hate Muslims because you are easily terrified by terrorists so you don’t look at anything objectively, that it’s all “feels over reals”?
Who is oppressed? Well let’s look at the women. Need I say more? And I don’t know anything about background checks? I literally put up a picture of a KNOWN terrorist standing beside Prime Minister Zoolander in Canada taking a selfie. And I am not at all terrified of Muslims.
I just don’t like barbarians.
You should go discuss this issue right now with someone living in France. I am sure they will be able to explain what it’s like living with the friendly Muslim.
Okay, looking at the women, not sure what you mean so yes, please say more. Are you concerned with other “oppressed” women or is just when Muslims are a factor that you become a Social Justice Warrior?
When was he a “known terrorist”? Before or after the selfie? How would the vetting you want catch him or any terrorist?
And if you’re not afraid of them why do you want them treated differently? Do you just hate them then?
What barbaric thing are they doing?
This is not France, this is Canada, we are speaking of Canada and it’s telling that you need to go all the way to France to find a problem because you can’t actually find one in Canada.
Are you sure you’re just not a bigot? Bigots usually have a hard time explaining stuff like this so I have to ask.
First an SJW I am not. I think you are now just baiting. No one can be this dense in this day and age. I love being called racist, bigot, Nazi, fascist call me what you want I think it’s hilarious. Here is a pic of how normal the religion of peace is. Enjoy. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/af8d5402f0699d75916224f01b03d39cfc6dde938a55b8c90f1eaa2ba9070062.jpg
Once again you only notice bad crazy things that Muslims do.
What’s funny is you think other people don’t notice it, that you’re taken seriously rather than laughed at. See that hate Muslims rally in Toronto.
I guess that’s why you’re so angry; you’re a minority and you fucking hate minorities so really the worst sort of self-loathing.
I’m not angry in the least. I bide my time waiting for Canada to see the true side of the religion of peace. I am a minority but I love my life which is why I don’t want Islam anywhere near me and my family. If you love Muslims great.
So you think all Muslims are just waiting and then they’ll attack us?
Are you sure you’re not terrified? You really seem like it.
And what is the closest a Muslim has gotten to your family? Have you ever actually met one? And if one got near like three feet would run screaming at them flailing your fist?
Do you really not get how wrong you are or is it that you’re so steeped in fear and rage that right and wrong don’t matter? You need to justify your bigotry and anything that does must be right?
So you do recognize “the bad crazy things that Muslims do”. What a hypocritical moron.
What are you babbling about?
This could be your new neighbor. Islam ain’t it great. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dff91b260e1051dbe8c4d5728c324f6ceb9a73646b1eabd317595e30fa3e8d2c.jpg
Or your neighbor could be a white old angry Canadian guy like you who kidnaps and tortures and murders two adults and a child. But I get that you being a bigot means you can only see bad in everyone else. Your race is superior and is never ever crazy violent! Hey how many Muslims ran the German and Italian government in the 1940s again?
https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a86427ea115c952424266c75f8f5220d54e8e8fe9fcc8872b5b281cca8341d5c.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0c25f7e1885cf8808eae4b18e17c7b748a5e60f3a61fc66e869f06fddb204d6d.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/089f6daae470ee47ba9232e3b0a244954767c99234e6d023d7bf22f8b2e24317.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b6151915a344ba573b03f9a37f36a73d940c8c85c0ddf9a79af8b5468d53e366.jpg
Coming to Canada real soon. Enjoy.
Yeah, again, Canada has had a few decades of Muslims coming here and that stuff doesn’t happen.
Europe has centuries of religious and other violence so maybe it’s more Europe than anything?
But I get as a White Supremacist the idea that your DNA could somehow be faulty is taboo.
You understand that stuff has happened in Canada yet you’re still terrified of Muslims.
Your command of english is amazing.
Aww, look at poor widdle Shane the Clueless White Canadian Male spouting off his noxious bullshit and not getting any support. Life getting you down, Shane? Too bad, I hope it lets you down even further.
Grow up and get a life, you’re vile.
Grow up and learn about life other than from Stromfront and other racist sites, brownshirt boy. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3e5373bad8166f54ae37404d2ed517caf7b2355f1fbdb0656a8f273b62c99662.jpg
And a clueless virtue signalling racist who clings to his identity politics to give him some sense of moral superiority.
The ‘racist ‘ is you, sir, not I. I’m just a black man standing up for himself and other nonwhites tired of inbred idiots like you.
Sounds like you don’t like white people. Please feel free to stop using anything we invented. i.e. cars comps phone sewer systems planes. You seem like a fucking goof.
And this proves me wrong how? By all means educate me as to who built all the things in my last reply…..GO.
Free speech isn’t a guaranteed right in Canada, and hate speech is never protected speech. That’s not changing.
But then again: Shane isn’t quite sure which country he is living in – or which language he is using.
The only thing changing is Sharia law will be in Canada.
No it isn’t coming to Canada. This is a wet dream fueled by the right to ratchet up fear.
Then why the bill? Seems like the Muslims are a little everyotherreligionophobic.
Listen LARP boy, some of us were actually around when Sharia law DID come to this province.
And now its gone.
You were maybe 5 at the time so can’t remember the outrage by citizens from ACROSS the political spectrum (no, not just the right).
Read some history.
> And it’s called a supporter of free speech
Except freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism. You seem to be making that mistake.
Uh whose free speech is being impinged upon?
Or do you mean you like to scream racist bigoted shit about Muslims and this makes it a bit harder to do so?
https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5bf8a407684f4bfa9cfb5af1529b5ab14a2f43050c2d546adbb58b224600d090.jpg Love Milo and Breitbart. Am I a Nazi?
You created a disqus profile just to type that?
You gonna answer the question?
If you love Milo and Breitbart, you keep company with Nazis, misogynists, and dangerous abusers (yes, the stuff done by Milo to various women is tantamount to abuse).
I have the freedom of speech in this country to call you a turd who has no idea about reality and who’s great grandparent’s would likely sock him in the mouth for supporting people that in the 40’s would have been locked up for collaboration with the Axis powers.
You answer that one.
Well better than hanging with Muslims. Last time that happened they blew me up. But what do I know.
I don’t know, ask your interpreter from back then (assuming you actually did a tour over there and are not doing some fantasy LARP), or maybe the ones no longer able to get into the US based on a stupid (and admitted) anti-Muslim ban while the countries who cover the REAL culprits are doing perfectly fine.
They should be banned. They are a serious issue. Ever wonder why we never hear about radical Buddhists or radical Taoists?…the list can go on. It’s because they can assimilate into OUR culture. Islam will never do this. It is US that must submit to them. Not me obviously. I would rather die.
Yeah, as I thought….ur LARPING. You never got blown up.
Not one, not ONE single guy (baring the PTSD dude I met once) who came back from a tour has suggested that the interpretors not be allowed in.
Never any radical Buddhists?
You need to do a bit more research on places in South East Asia.
But, hey, you go on about “OUR culture” in a country which has had waves of immigrants for 400 years where the ones who came just before said the same damn thing.
Dude I was in the PPCLI and another unit for nearly 30 years. You want my coin #s? I hated every interpreter because they lied. Unless you are talking about the interpreters from when we were in Bosnia? Hot women sure. But if you are talking about Afghanistan NO they can stay there.
Greg, I’ll bet that you’re a Keyboard Kommando and warmongering neocon chickenhawk who never served one day in the CAF at all.
Wanna find out? Sounds to me by using “CAF” that your probably some old WOG that never went outside the wire but put in a claim for PTSD. Now go fuck your cap badge.
This ‘WOG’ isn’t anything as pathetic as you, brownshirt boy. Crawl back to the small town that you obviously came from, and stay there; Toronto’s too god for a racist freak like you.
Toronto? LMFAO. A city made up of third world scum. I would not brag about TO. man it’s a literal dump. My small town isn’t small at all. And racist why? Is it because I don’t agree with Liberal bullshit? I can’t be proud of my heritage? my culture? E.A.D. dude.
Oh like the radical buddhists that are raping and beheading Muslim rohingyans women, and children in Myanmar? Stop being so ignorant.
You mean Burma. So one little place compared to the other near half of the earth? Go Buddha!
Radical Buddhists, go to Myanmar. Just because you do not hear about them, does not mean they do not exist.
I’m more frightened of the alt-reich than Muslims. After all the last terrorist attack in Canada was performed by their ilk.
Yes the Alt Right are well known when it comes to acid attacks against school girls, beheading’s, burning’ s, throwing gays off rooftops. Wow your obviously joking right? Please say you are.
They’re well known for terrorist attacks in Canada.
LOL this was a shooting not a terrorist attack. You really think it was just this guy? If so I have a bridge i’d like to sell you.
Nothing what? The Mynamar thing? Do they cut heads off and not show it then? Great. Pretty sure we were talking about Canada and the rest of the world like France right now. Islam is a cancer. I Mynamar Jesus….
Nothing in your head. You da cancer, so rot away
da? You speala de inglais??? Try an ESL class dipshit.
The etymology of ‘dipshit’ is of great interest to me, and even though you are clearly brain damaged, I would be pleased to explain it you. Do you have a permanent residence or do you simply sleep in the nearest ditch. Write again if you are ever sober. Cheers!
Oh your up to the E’s in the dictionary. Good for you. Work hard and maybe one day you can run your own 7 11. I’ll just lay here in my ditch and drink.
Off the heroin? And just drinkiing-no more meth anal irrigations- Good for you! Upgraded to a ditch from the septic tank? Bully for you! Keep up the good work! As someone with a non-communicative IQ of 25,, you are exceptional!
Are you trying to convince me or yourself that your educated? Because if it’s for me just stop. You’re a long winded boring Liberal who knows nothing about the real world. So I will leave you be now keyboard warrior. Take care , eat some bacon and enjoy living in the third world city of Toronto.
Since you are just a bot, why would I want to ‘convince’ you,? Tell your programmer you spread your slime. Continue to pretend to be human-you’re not.
Watch for your brain rot drips upside your head!
How are you still typing with one hand on your boyfriends dick and the other one in your ass?
Another intellectual tour de force comment by the famous Masturbator, ‘Greg’, posted in the midst of hitting himself in the face with a tiny dribble of cum that he’d saved for weeks, just pouring out of his micro-cock
Awww shucks….I’m flattered. If you wanna ask me out just ask. You don’t have to grease me so much. Where should we meet?
Finish your incarceration first
You are clearly trying to turn me on…….and it’s working!!
Prisoners like yourself often masturbate until they pull it off themselves and become…you.
Your mom almost pulled it off last night. She tends to get a little aggressive due to the fact you and your dad can’t satisfy her anymore. Sad.
Yeah, it is sad. Your intellect is visibly declining with every comment. Cause & effect? Perhaps your untreated advanced syphilis?
So your NOT denying the fact you and your dad service your mother?
And another 10% of your intellect disappears into the ether! Drool much yet?
Are you masturbating as you type and AGAIN finding yourself impotent. Pretty sad, but you could try Viagara, or just give it up and cut it off. Best of luck!
Actually thinking of you and your mom together got me so hard. It was crazy. Luckily your dad was over so I could use his mouth as a reseptacle. I’m seriously falling for you. I need you to know that.
Your IQ down 50%! You are now vegetable matter. Watch out for herbivores and omnivores & AVOID SALAD DRESSING!
So I hear you are in a diaper with a tube down your throat! Congrats!
Speala? Your tremors bothering you again!
Oh, what clueless honkies these alt-right white supremacists be!
No. Create another profile and answer it yourself. You alt.right freaks are good at that.
Dont worry Roy keep calm and https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b186d308adf316baf604c9b2105f15aa4b06e39f626c0c839baf978e1147762e.png
Yes, you’ve either got fascistic tendencies or you’re a troll.
Fantastic tendencies because??? Oh and snowflake Troll is the new cut down for a Muslim so be careful.
No, you love fascist idiots who would have been Nazis given the chance.
So really not a good look.
What is with you guys and Nazis? And Fascists? We are talking about Muslims. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a55519d910e11d43c5544414dbcb0a9a82ca2e26c0a911bc4ca477667276aee0.jpg
You sound like a typical left wing terrorist
By “Disgusting” you mean they point out stupid fascist idiots being stupid fascists idiots and that hurts your delicate fee-fees like your Dear Leader Trump’s?
Are you going to go cry on Twitter about it? IN ALL CAPS?
Those who want to silence free speech, like you do, are the true fascists. I love it!
So being told you are a stupid fascist idiot = being told to shut up?
What snowflakiness hell is this?
Not sure, snowflake.
Dude, I’m calling out people on here and you are flat out saying that others are being told to shut up when all t hey are being told is adjectives.
Ur melting faster then the Leafs playoff hopes.
Yeah, that’s actually not what’s going on here but I get you don’t want to talk about what’s going on and would rather do the strawman thing. No one’s speech is being shut down, it’s more saying “people who say these sorts of things are bad”.
Hey you can hate Muslims all you like, free country to be all kinds of pathetic asshole, but the rest of us are not going to let it go without comment.
Can’t handle that? Well sorry snowflake no safe-spaces for hate, not here, not now, not ever.
I can handle it. Lol!
Pansy! Ah, yes, it’s always a gay thing with you guys, isn’t it? Like Trudeau and Obama are pansy, right? Even though both of them could kick Trump’s fat, lazy, bloated cheese filled ass cuz they work out and are real athletes.
And no, you guys are the inventors of the safe-space, look at your Dear Leader Trump and the way he wails and cries when people say mean things about him. Christ he couldn’t even handle Clinton saying shit, NOT A PUPPET YOU’RE THE PUPPET!!!
Yeah, that’s what solid men say.
If you could handle it you wouldn’t keep your Disqus history private.
And if you could handle it, you wouldn’t feel compelled to look. Sucker! Lol!
There Breitbart a$$holes are too stupid to grasp the difference between having freedom of speech and freedom to tell a bigot they’re being an a$$hole.
Get a life Shane. Leitch belongs in Alabama with a Rebel flag. Right?
Shucks, anything involving McVety will degenerate into something unrecognizable to the typical Canadian.
Thank God for Rebel Media, the only right leaning news outlet remaining in the country.
What about Small Dead Animals and the conservative clearing house Blogging Tories?
Didn’t know about them, thanks for the heads up.
If you prefer we could purge all news from one side from the country. In fact, that sounds actually a bit like actual “Nazism”.
you prefer bash muslim not jews?
STRAW MAN BURN REAL GOOD!!!!!
i gues it ok bash muslim but not jews!
Who said anything about it being okay to bash Muslims?
u seem like jews over muslims
You have no idea what you’re talking about and your sentences barely make sense. I never said a thing about Jews, although you seem to have a thing about it. No ideology is above criticism or reproach. Violence is never okay directed at any religion.
imaginr is alex bissonette was muslim we all knoe who cryn fowl right/
Anti Semite much?
u seem be anto miusl.im!
Yes I am. And for good reason. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b5b978538115212229c463f78c5d0261baaea98b6e90f69e03f5575c8f926bd.jpg
like i said you rather jews jwews where rape culture marry young girld
Nice “face”, Shane.
The left is pretty nasty in their insults and recent surge of violence.
u must in love with ezra levant to!
Is this where we discuss the dozens of Synagogues being threatened in the US and Canada right now?
The Mosque burnings?
You want to talk about surge of violence?
Go ahead – prove that its the Left doing this
BTW, I’m a Right of Centre Mennonite, so if you want to make this whole “the left” thing about the first responder to you on here today, you can’t
Have you considered that smug douchebags just inspire people to want to hit them?
No, I prefer to think violence is never the answer.
did rebel hug bissonete yet?
Worked for the US when it came to ending slavery. Stopped the Nazi advance into Eastern Europe. I dunno violence seems to get a lot done.
I disagree as I’d prefer to combat bad ideas with better ideas. Is advocating violence a liberal value or?
let keep invading other muslims civil wars aka russia way!
If debate works so well how did Nazism manage to rise in the country of Kant? I feel as if were debate oh so effective at countering bigotry, Germany of all places would have been a paragon of inclusivity throughout the 20th century.
How about that mass killing in Quebec City? Relative of yours?
Look at all the white people. Almost as white as a Jays game.
I love white ppl. They have such privilege. Right Don?
Those who notice skin color are the true racists. Just sayin’
“You can be racist against little red apples”
Are you Doug?
He’s an engineer in Fort Mac. Considers himself a hard-headed realist on climate change (a hoax, naturally), and has all the usual predictable libertarian/RW baggage with respect to a wide range of social issues.
Okay, the Rebel has clearly become a “triggered” right-wing organization that’s slowly going off the deep end, but it doesn’t mean that root of the issue isn’t still completely valid. Free speech is the value by which all other values are negotiated, and we screw with it at our own peril.
The non binding (i.e. its not a law) piece of legislative vote recording about Islamaphobia that will occur and is being discussed here is not any different then the one passed unanimously by the H of C in the fall.
This isn’t about free speech – its about the Islamaphobes being triggered.
I’m looking forward to the Rebel line by line discussion of the section of Hansard where the MP involved reads out in detail the corrspondence she has received over this issue.
I wonder what they’ll say to the “blank you slowly with a chain saw” email sent?
The fact is that we’re singling out a religion for special treatment because of the supposed claims about hate speech. Islam doesn’t need to be free from criticism, nor does any other religion for that matter. The danger is in trying to legislate what’s offensive, and to whom.
“The fact is that we’re singling out a religion for special treatment”
FACT: somebody killed 6 people JUST A FEW DAYS AGO because they were from that religion.
FACT: the MP who put up this bit of voting recording (that’s all it is) has been told by somebody they will “Blank you slowly with a chain saw”
You think MAYBE there is something going on here?
BTW, until you bother to respond to the second fact there, you keep the company of some really shitty people.
Yes I understand the awful ramifications of the violence that just happened in Quebec. And when people make threats via email, they are illegal, that’s not really the issue here.
FACT: Obscurantism about the causes of religious violence have lead to a totally warped discussion about Islamaphobia.
I’m not saying that hating Muslims is okay, but people criticize bad ideas and they get lumped into the pile with everyone else as “bigots.” We are trying to legislate our way out of having an honest conversation, I think that’s wrong.
Its the EXACT same thing voted on UNANIMOUSLY by the H of C last fall.
And it suggests maybe a H of C committee to study into why this is happening and figure out how to stop it.
And if you think that’s a BAD thing based on “one religion being singled out” then, yes, you keep company with Breitbart and Nazi types.
Are you honestly suggesting that any dissent toward Islamic ideology is “hate”? You can’t criticize religion now without being labelled an Islamophobe?
STRAW MAN BURN GOOD!
Shane these guys cant see the forest because of the trees. If you don’t agree with their weak arguments your a Nazi. They are insane. I love it when I get called Racist, Bigot, Nazi, Fascist I LMFAO These words have no oomph anymore because they are used so much.
Lol, if that’s what you think then, fine. I’ve got no love for Breitbart or anything of the like, but I know you’re itching to go there so have at it.
My characterization of it as legislation is not correct, I can see that now, but it is part of a disturbing ongoing trend that leaves the definition of “hate speech” too broadly defined on the table. Considering that people are being called bigots for giving honest cirticism of religion, I don’t think it’s completely unwarranted to worry about overreach here.
you rather take away tim horton and and maple syrup?
Oh you know something about the Mosque shooter? The rest of Canada does not. Trudeaus great cover up. As for the MP she’s a whiny Muslim. The exact reason we don’t want them here. I get threatened daily I don’t go crying about it. She should ask for a spine this Christmas…oh yea never mind.
You get threatened daily?
Time for a change then: either the company you keep, or the attitudes you display.
Once a month is far too often.
Just the simple fact I like Trump, Harper and Le Pen gets a ton of hatred from the snowflakes. My point is that the mosque shooter story has disappeared. Why? All those cameras and we haven’t seen any footage? Hmm? As for the MP she is a whiny C U Next Tuesday. Which is typical for anyone that follows the Prophet Muhpedophile.
Brilliantly spoken cant, with absolutely no supportive evidence for the proposition.
Is the answer, “Said no serious political thinker ever?”
“Free Speech” has always been carefully circumscribed; but you may certainly continue calling “Fire” in that crowded theatre of your imagination; for all the good that it will do you.
I’m perfectly aware of the “reasonable limits” on free speech. But there is a difference between speech that can reasonably be thought to cause harm in the way that yelling fire in a crowded theatre does, and legislating what can and cannot be said about a religion, especially when it comes to criticism. i think we’re operating in a space that is coming dangerously close to this.
By “we’re operating in a space that is coming dangerously close to this”, are you referring to the recent massacre in Quebec by an alienated young man who was empowered by the ongoing hate speech by outlets like “The Rebel” – whose owner, Ezra Levant, is on court record testifying that he considers what he does more as “entertainment” than “journalism”; truth not being a consideration. Your meaning isn’t clear from your sentence.
And thank you for climbing back off the “Free speech is the value by which all other values are negotiated, and we screw with it at our own peril.” ledge. Such cant is very unhelpful in an intelligent discussion.
Thanks for the preaching, that really helped.
If the hate speech “empowered” this young man to committ awful acts, let’s talk about the hate speech trapped within the pages of holy books that serve for the inspiration of similarly disgusting acts. People have the power to think and act for themselves, and this kid clearly made the wrong choices based on views that were shitty. But we need to be counter those ideas, rather than trying to censor them. Just like we have to do with theocratic violence.
“wrong choices”: I see you’re back to unsupported cant again – given that the young man wasn’t especially religious, so holy books don’t exactly come into it – except as an obligatory non-sequitor of a talking point.
Your talking points are getting in the way of your logic; and your lovely liberal idea of “countering” ideas doesn’t work when platforms like Breitbart and The Rebel precisely do not allow dissenting voices to have any room whatsoever.
Which theocracy would you like to overthrow first: “We The People”; the Throne; the Pope; the Sunnis; the Shias; the BJP, the Ismaelis; or the Dalai Lama? Myself, I kind of favour the Yellow Emperor’s model in simply burning all the books and starting again. Though – to be honest – Confucius just proceeded to recreate them from memory; so we might have to burn all the religious scholars as well.
i gues it ok make money to and fake website aka rebel way?
Yes and listening to Black Sabbath makes kids commit suicide. Don’t be daft. The Rebel is responsible LOL.
The Nazi salute isn’t racist.
It’s totally freedom of speech to be able to signal “Heil Hitler!” in a crowded theatre.
“The Nazi salute isn’t racist.”
You need to read a little more history Fred.
Yelling “Fuhrer!” in a crowded theatre!
Why isn’t your tag Fred88?
88 is a lucky number in Chinese
The fascists Nazis don’t get to keep that number to themselves in this city.
They can LARP to their hearts content about Hitler etc. But that # means something different to many people here.
It’s over-amped garbage like this that Rebel will point to as proof that “the Left” is out to get them. Don’t make it so easy for them, Torontoist (and you in particular, Zach).
Video accurately reflects what happened there.
Why are people so offended by a simple straight-arm salute?
Rebel Media and their supporters provide plenty of legitimate targets to be offended by. Islamophobia, their anti-science/education stance, the hypocrisy of supporting “Christian values” while being simultaneously opposed to any form of social assistance… the list is long.
But defaulting to “Her arm is out! She’s a Nazi!” is petty, irresponsible and in this case, incorrect. For anyone who doesn’t feel like sitting through five minutes of video, the woman pictured is at the 2:14 mark. It’s clearly a show of support of the speaker, not a fucking sieg heil.
This could’ve been an article about any one of the frighteningly ignorant things said by attendees at the rally, but instead it’s exactly the type of reactionary, fear-mongering idiocy that Rebel thrives on.
Torontoist is (usually) better than this.
yet u rather support rebel?
Uh, anyone with sense should be out to “Get” Rebel and its fuckwit master Ezra. They’re human garbage and every time they open their hate-holes the rest of us need to shout them down.
For the record, I’m not pro-Rebel. I’m anti-sensationalist trash, which this article is.
For the record it’s not sensationalist, it’s disturbing, those assholes want a Canadian Trump because they fear and loath anyone or anything that isn’t like them or that they don’t understand. Rebel is a puke funnel right to their pea brains and regular people need to know that.
I don’t disagree, but that wasn’t the point of my comment.
Hey do a march and hold a sign. Your a tool.
Yes, that is the sort of garbage I was talking about, thank you Exhibit A.
Who gives a shit what the “rebel” does Bleb.
Nazis everywhere. You guys are nuts.
So… these guys are Nazis or?
what a bunch of delusional reporting and propaganda
Never seen uglier people in my life.
“They’re not Buddhists”…meanwhile in Myanmar: Buddhist terrorists are their biggest security concern. I find it hard to believe people so breathtakingly stupid and myopic came out of the same educational system as me. smh.
Of course Levant is terrified. He’s been charged with Hate Speech before and got off because of laziness. A law like this would muzzle his ass once and for all, which is good because he’s the only “journalist” I know of who isn’t American who’s known to peddle in hatred AND peddling false information. Amazing how the two go hand in hand. smh.
Muzzling any journalism, whether you agree with it or not, sounds like “Nazism” to me. If you hate this ideas that he’s saying through his free speech then counter his ideas with BETTER ideas and don’t simply try to legislate him into silence.
do u supposr bil m30?
Its not a bill.
look at it
shae rather bash muslim hug jews
wew rather hugs jews and christians over muslim under shane!
All the stupid in this fucking video. I can’t.
Thanking the media arm of a man who’s been widely known to disseminate FALSE info and spread hate for “telling the truth”…wtf?
“I have an Asian wife, I can’t be racist”…as if Strom Thurmond didn’t conduct one of the longest filibusters in US history AGAINST civil rights for Black people, while having a “black” daughter he “loved” and was caring for. smh.
I really, really, hate these people. Talk about living an unexamined life. smh.
see we cant hate jews but can hate om muslim right?
rebel rather hug bissonette
Their boss, Ezra Levant, is actually Jewish.
Typical left wing Anti White, Anti Christian terrorists. These sorts of monsters with their ‘journalism’, make it no mystery that they would be plenty proud if all White Christian’s were violently and savagely ethnically cleansed. Once more, this video is Anti White, Anti Christian, terrorist propaganda. These people who made this video, are absolute monsters and sociopaths. Their loyalty is to traitors, cowards and the monsters who are destroying the West
