Well, this is ironic ...

Macleans' Tabatha Southey suggests that the promotional video for Ezra Levant's new "Rebel Freedom Fund" seems to originate from a basement somewhere in Lloydminster.

I'm going to stay out of this one.

"Rebel who?"

For all of Ezra Levant's celebrating, high-fiving and creaming his Bibi Netanyahu long johns over "acquiring" infamous racist and bigot Katie Hopkins as a new contributor, it's enlightening to observe that Hopkins doesn't mention her affiliation with Rebel Media in her Twitter bio:


I'm sure it's just an oversight.

JUXTAPOSE!

Despicable bigot, racist, Rebel Media contributor and Britisher Katie Hopkins pops over to U.S. to warn Americans about hateful foreigners washing up on their shores.


#WarmSocksYOW still in business ...

... just burning off the last few dollars collected by CC HQ's #WarmSocksYOW GoFundMe page from over the holidays ...


... already deposited with the fine folks at the Ottawa Mission, who are adamant they could really use towels, so maybe the last couple hundred dollars will go to towels.

GOSH, THAT'S ADORABLE. Anonymous comment from someone too cowardly to leave their name accuses me of Photoshopping the receipt, demands to see the date. OK, then:


Any time you feel like stepping in and taking over, there's nothing stopping you. Like I said, they could really use towels. Knock yourself out.

UPPITY DATE: Initial snotty commenter, attempting to be snotty, gets ass handed to him/her and is challenged to put money where mouth is and contribute to charity. Instead, follows up with comment wherein frantically changes subject. I think we're done here. Thanks for coming.

Is "Oil Patch Arm Candy" on her way out from Rebel Media?

Fascinating e-mail I just received -- no corroborating evidence attached, and came through an anonymous remailer -- suggesting that Sheila Gunn ("sand box savages") Reid ...


... is set to jump ship from Rebel Media.

Let me emphasize that there is no supporting evidence for that claim contained in this e-mail, and I have absolutely no idea who sent it, but it would be a fascinating development. Let's just watch and see what happens.

P.S. Fascinating bit of speculation as to why Rebel's Tommy Robinson just bailed. Most interesting observation is that, with his criminal record, he wasn't eligible to enter the United States, and was therefore of very little value.

The "Rebel Freedom Fund" -- What could possibly go wrong?

The Globe and Mail would like to make a couple suggestions (behind paywall):


Well, sure, but besides that?

There's no hypocrisy like a Kay family hypocrisy.

Yammering colostomy bag and self-obsessed blowhard Jonathan Kay collects other peoples' money ...


... for, well, let's let Jon supply the head-scratching explanation ...


This would be the same piece of utter human garbage Jonathan Kay who openly attacked one Erin Wunker just the other day:


I look forward to Wells Asset Management announcing the "Kaybel Freedom Fund with Scrumptious RRSP Capabilities." Surely that comes next.

P.S. By the way, Jon, I was mobbed and driven off of Twitter. When do I get my cheque?

UPPITY DATE: Robert Jago, literally Canada's Most Dangerous Blogger, savagely snaps the waistband on Jon Kay's Preston Manning-themed Underoos:

I'm just going to leave this here ...



UPPITY DATE: When you've become too toxic for even Tommy Robinson ...

Yeah, about that "Rebel Freedom Fund" ...

I'm going to have considerably more to say about this latest begging bowl venture of Ezra's:


but for now, I will satisfy myself with pointing out that, if investors wonder how confident they should be about getting their money back, one need only consider how Ezra Levant left new subscribers high and dry when he folded the print edition of the Western Standard back in 2007:


Some newly paid up subscribers were less than impressed:


I'm just trying to be helpful.

UPPITY DATE: Twitterer Max Fawcett has quite the thread going on here.

What could possibly go wrong?

As God is my witness, I have no idea how to properly mock this:




P.S. Potential investors might ask whatever happened to that promised "app," for which Rebel Media already raised over $200,000 and which is already months late.



I'm just trying to be helpful.

P.P.S. One wonders why Ezra needs yet another company that dabbles in mortgages when he already had the deliciously-named Gonad Holdings, Inc., who were squeezing him for interest-only, second mortgage payments of eight grand a month:


It is certainly an exciting time to be Ezra.

Apparently, the Morlocks win again.

Not sure this is worth the trouble:


If only Canada had some "free speech" warriors who would leap to my defence ...

P.S. Just to be clear, Twitter just suspended my new Twitter account, again with absolutely no explanation and no identification of the allegedly offending tweets that were used as the rationale for the suspension.

Suddenly, donors should start asking about that "app."

Once upon a time, Rebel Media whined about political repression and bailing out of YouTube:


A great deal of money was raised:


but no app was forthcoming as YouTube seemed content to continue to carry Rebel Media monetized videos.

Suddenly, today, we read the following from one Ezra Levant:


This would seem to be precisely the trigger Ezra described that would get Rebel Media off of YouTube and onto his shiny new "app", which begs the question ... where is the promised app?

If I was an early donor, I might be wondering where my money went. But that's just me.

... and suddenly, the whole bogus "Hijab Hoax" movement makes sense.

For a while, I wondered what the driving force was behind the recent, ludicrous "Hijab Hoax" movement; particularly, the relentless insistence that it was being pushed by "the Asian community" or "Chinese Canadians" or some similar demographically-inspired descriptor.

There's little doubt who's behind it when you follow the URL http://hijabhoax.com to find:


Pretty much every reference to the "Hijab Hoax" movement and its associated public rallies insists that it's a product, not of a small group of malcontents, but the Asian/Chinese community at large, as demonstrated by the ad for the upcoming Ottawa rally here:


Why, I mused, would the mouth-breathers at Rebel Media be pandering so shamelessly to the Asian-Canadian community, a demographic they have never given a crap about before?

And then the other shoe dropped:


And there it is ... the utterly bogus "Hijab Hoax" movement is nothing more than a shameless attempt to instill outrage at Justin Trudeau in Chinese-Canadians. And given that ex-Rebel Media hack Hamish Marshall is now running the CPC, should anyone be surprised that Rebel Media is so suddenly concerned about the opinions of Chinese-Canadians, and doing whatever it can to stoke the fires against the federal Liberals, given the value of their collective votes in 2019?

And, yes, you read it here first.

Sure, let's talk about the state of journalism these days.

Rebel Media's Ezra Levant throws down about the terrible state of Canadian journalism:


Sure, let's go there, Ezra:


I think we're done here.

Setting international relations back 50 years ...

This should be diplomatically unsettling:


One can only hope ex-Rebeler Gavin can make it:


Gavin's always good for shits and giggles.

P.S. One wonders what Mideast-related expertise is being brought to the table by avowed trailer park arm candy and oil patch screech harpy Sheila "sand box savages" Gunn Reid:


I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before Canadian Foreign Affairs has to step in and politely request her release from some dingy Israeli prison. Or they'll offer to leave her there, either way works just fine.

JUXTAPOSE!

Rebel Media's Ezra Levant is creaming his Preston Manning underoos over the totally total awesomeness of Donald Trump's tax cuts, resulting in bonuses and raises for everybody, whoo hoo!


Oh, wait ...


and this:


and this:


See, that's the problem when someone tells you only half the story. But with Rebel Media, you should be used to that by now.
