Crass, naked opportunist and 2024 GOP Presidential hopeful Nikki Haley goes after the Biden agenda:
Hilariously, Jacob Anthony ("QAnon Shaman") Chansley, far from being the blustering, ass-kicking blowhard one sees on social media:
is a pathetic 30-something snowflake who still lives at home and insists he should not be held accountable for anything he did.
Man, that sounds familiar. Where have I heard that story before? Oh, right ...

Completely overlooked in the current elementary school playground slapfight between Erin O'Toole and Ezra Levant:
is the underlying pattern one sees when dealing with Ezra and Rebel News -- the inevitability that every story coming out of Rebel News is about ... Rebel News. It never fails. Ever.
Only Ezra could take an innocuous story about "interviewing" Erin O'Toole (which, by the way, he did not), and morph it into a massive clusterfuck of publicity wherein it's now all about Rebel News, to the point where Ezra is running his 3,649th petition solely for the purpose of data mining more rubes and yokels for his mailing list:
It has always been thus -- the fundamental purpose of Ezra Levant and Rebel News is not to publish news; rather, it is to talk endlessly and tediously about (you guessed it) Ezra Levant and Rebel News.
- Witness: Rebel News "Alberta Bureau Chief" Sheila Gunn Reid covers a rally; for the next several months, the only story is about how someone told her to fuck off, and the subsequent court case. A petition follows.
- Witness: In-house brownshirt Keean Bexte tries to cover a Justin Trudeau presser; for the next several months, the only story is about how he was denied entry. A petition follows.
- Witness: David Menzies tries to interview Peter MacKay; for the next several months, the only story is how he was ungraciously shown the door, and arrested when he made an total ass of himself. A petition follows.
It never changes. Ever. Rebel News has nothing to do with publishing news, and everything to do with relentless, shameless self-promotion, monetizing and grift, 24/7/365. As if you needed me to explain that.

Conservatives, who ruthlessly block followers on social media so those followers can no longer read their messages, suddenly furious about being banned from social media because it prevents them from getting their message out.
Don't make me stop this car and have to explain that to you.

"How DARE so many entitled, self-absorbed, latte-sipping members of the UCP engage in non-essential travel to the U.S. during a pandemic?", screamed Ezra Levant, at exactly the same time he was sending a Canadian journalist on non-essential travel to the U.S.
AFTERSNARK: When I describe in-house white supremacist turd Keean Bexte's D.C. "journalism" as "non-essential," it's because it's worthless shit like this:
I think you see my point.
Well, this is awkward ...
Yeah, about that ...
APPARENTLY, there's more here than meets the eye. According to the Globe article, the e-mail interview was not with O'Toole himself; rather, the e-mailed questions were answered by a press secretary:
This raises the obvious question: Was Ezra not aware he was not actually talking to O'Toole? And if he knew that, did this really represent an "exclusive interview" if O'Toole wasn't part of the process? I'm going out on a limb here, and speculating that O'Toole was more than a little pissed as being described as giving an "exclusive interview" to Rebel News, given that he seems to have known nothing about it.
RUH ROH: Apparently, Ezra has been caught misrepresenting that interview "with Erin O'Toole," as he has subsequently admitted that he knew it was O'Toole's press secretary providing the answers:
In short, Ezra claimed an exclusive interview "with Erin O'Toole" when he knew full well that he was getting answers from only a press secretary. That seems ... tacky.
