How Does Canada Deal With Our Own Version Of Breitbart Media & An Impassioned Steve Bannon-Type Journalist?
Yesterday . . . April 10, 2021 – a Reported Number of 50-Armed Montreal Police Officers Descended Upon a Legal Gathering of a Legitimate Conservative Media (Rebel News), which was Created, Organized & is Run by Former Calgarian Ezra Levant, whose Purpose in Montreal was to Cover & Report on the Anti-Quebec Lockdown Demonstrations in Montreal.
Ezra Levant is the Kind of Guy who Believes Unrelentingly in the Right of Freedom Of Expression, and Rails at Government Lies, Incompetence & Dishonesty . . . and if Levant has to Face the Monsters of Anti-Freedom Alone – Ezra Will Do So, even if it Means Levant’s Scared from His Head to his Toes, Because Levant’s Done it Multiple Times. I Can Personally Relate.
Levant Became Prominent In 2006 By Republishing The Mohamed Cartoons In Levant’s Western Standard Newspaper.
As Levant Explained Repeatedly . . . He Didn’t Republish the Now Infamous Mohamed Cartoons, which were the Source of Riots, Consternation, Terror & Death Worldwide because Ezra Levant Wanted to Disparage Mohamed as much as Levant Wanted the World to Be Free to Express Itself, Opinions & Facts in a Manner that would be Free from a Malevolent Backlash.
The Western Standard . . . was Ezra Levant’s Own Calgary Conservative Newspaper, which Folded after a While, mostly as I Understand-It, because it was Simply of a Lack of Revenue. It Costs A Lot Of Money To Publish A Newspaper.
So . . . Levant Blossomed Into Other Media Ventures, which Included a Successful Stint as a Talk-Host on Live Toronto Television and on the Internet. And No Matter Where Levant Wound-Up, He Never Stopped Advocating for Conservative Causes & Against the Excesses of Government.
In 2015 . . . Ezra Levant Struck-Out on his Own and Created an Internet Video News Media Called REBEL NEWS, which has at Least One Studio with Camera & Broadcasting Equipment . . . And A Staff of Dedicated No-Name Reporters Who Aren’t Politically Correct.
Levant Was Never Cowed Into Being Silent & Not Going After Whomever Needed To Have Been Gone After.
Because Of Levant’s Take-No-Prisoner Style Of Journalism . . . And Levant’s Popularity with Conservative Canadians, Levant and his Rebel Media are Constantly Getting Whacked On All Sides, And Like The LEFT Is Wont-To-Do, Especially the Canadian Competition Averse Media, where Ezra Levant is Portrayed as a Nutjob, a Far Right-Winger & Islamophobic, because Levant Shuns the Islamization of the World & Stands-Up for Israel with the Truth, Against the Palestinians who Survive on Lies & Conspiracy-Theories Emboldened by the Anti-Semitic United Nations.
Even Though Levant Has a Considerable Conservative Following in Canada – the “Liberal” Not So-Conservative Party of Canada Wouldn’t & Won’t Allow the Rebel Media to Report from Inside their Meetings & Conventions, just Because the Rebel Media Might Shed some Truth to their Controlled Narrative.
What Does That Tell You?
Ezra Levant Plays His Journalism Right Up The Middle . . . Sometimes Levant’s a Bit Over the Top, but Never to the Extent where What Levant Says or Writes is Dutifully Actionable . . . But I Remember When All “REAL” Journalists Were Aggressive & Somewhat Over The Top To Get To The Truth.
But Believe it Or Not . . . It Makes A Huge Anti-Semitic Difference.
I Have No Idea If Any Of Levant’s Reporters Are Jewish . . . I Suspect Not, and if any were, How would I know-it, since the Rebel Media Isn’t a Religiously Based News Service Favoring any Religion . . . So Why Do Quebec Cops Refer To The Rebel Media As “JEW-MEDIA” . . . And Why Do They Ask Rebel News Media Reporter’s If They’re Jews?
The Montreal Police Had No Reason to Swoop-In on the Rebel Media who were Doing Nothing Wrong, were Neither a Physical Nor a Health Threat to Anyone . . . who Had Total Legitimacy to be Where they Were Doing what they Were Doing.
And When The Rebel Media Asked The Montreal Cops to See their Warrant for Search & Seizure as the Cops Strongarmed the Rebel Staff . . . the Response from the Montreal Police Reminded me of the Old 1948 Movie . . . The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre . . . Badges? We Don’t Need No Stinking Badges.
As Terrifying As It Is To Know That The Montreal Police Would Be So Draconian, it is Equally Terrifying to Know that the Canadian Media has Not Come-Out All-Guns Blazing at the Outrage Against Freedom of Expression & Extreme Abuse of Power.
Because Levant Is Jewish . . . What Does That Make Him Guilty Of? I’m Jewish & I Support Israel . . . Should I Be Scared?
Years Ago – When I Became Politically Prominent In Quebec – The French Media Headlines Screamed . . . “GALGANOV THE ANGLO-JEW”.
I Also Want You To Know . . . When the Lockdowns in Montreal (Quebec) First Began and the Chasidic Community (Ultra-Orthodox Branch Of Judaism) Insisted on Going to Synagogue & Living a Normal Jewish Life at No Threat to their Outside World . . . The City Of Montreal & The Province Of Quebec Publicly & Enthusiastically Accused (In All The French Media) These Jews Of Being Super-Spreaders, And Viciously Attacked (Physically) Peaceful Jews Expressing their Constitutional Right to Freedom of Religion & Assembly.
FINALLY . . . CTV News Passively Reported on the Egregious Abuse of Power & Constitutional Rights which Occurred in Montreal . . . Reported That No Arrests Were Made. Gave the Impression that No One was Manhandled, Didn’t State the Obvious that the Montreal Police were the Aggressors and there was No Warrant for what the Police Did.
Who Should We Fear The Most . . . A Compliant Media Or A Fascist Police Force?
