I believe I predicted that perfectly.

Part 3:



Damn, I'm good.

OMG: The arrest of David Menzies set to Benny Hill music is the Bowen Yang of icebergs.

P.S. Send money.


HOLY SHIT, but Rebel News' David Menzies is in an assload of trouble. Watch the video clip here, where Menzies gets in the face of a Montreal police officer to the point where she is forced to push him back. Note very carefully in that first few seconds where, after the female officer (justifiably) pushes Menzies, he immediately shoves the officer next to her.

That's assault. Of a police officer.

Menzies is so massively fucked.

UNLEASH THE BOTS! If you didn't realize that Rebel News has an army of automated bots configured to post support, consider this screenshot, wherein two Twitter accounts post precisely the same content within one second of each other:




JUXTAPOSE!

Rebel News: "It's outrageous to shut down a white, Christian church whose only sin was to hold a packed, maskless super-spreader event with more than 300 people!"




Also Rebel News: "Filthy Muslims."




About that "other side of the story" thing ...

The bloviating doofuses at Rebel News love to claim that their shtick is to tell the "other side of the story" ... I'm assuming that's the side of the story from the alternate universe where GOP congresscreature Matt Gaetz is not under investigation for sex trafficking:



 



It's almost like they're not interested in the other side of story or something.

Yeah, about that accreditation ...

Now that Nazi paraphernalia expert and right-wing hack Keean Bexte is no longer a part of Rebel News, is it time for various orgs to yank his accreditation?



 

BONUS TRACK: It's worth noting that Rebel Media was not, in fact, accredited properly via a vote by the Alberta Legislature Press Gallery (who rejected them), but via an override by the sleazy partisan hack that is the Speaker of the House, a fact Rebel revealed publicly shortly after it happened:




Quite simply, bragging about your accreditation when it was granted by a single UCP hack is akin to bragging about how you got into law school, while admitting it's because your uncle is the dean.

JUXTAPOSE!

One of these things is not like the other.





Well, this is a bit awkward.

As Republican sleazebag Matt Gaetz sinks slowly into the sunset:



 
it's worth remembering just who kept giving him all that publicity:



But Hillary's e-mail server, amirite?

This comment deserves its own post

Anonymous commenter just gifted me with the following, which I will now share with the world:

Here's another interesting development. The Albino love child of Ezra Levant and Sheila Gunn Reid appears to have been quietly expunged. Try searching for Keean Bexte's "journalist" page at the Rebel. It's gone. Then look for the masthead photo they've been using that shows the whole smirking team, prominently featuring Keean. It's gone too. His "program" is no longer included in their list of shows. I wonder what triggered the final flush? I've actually wondered about his mental health over the last few months (the paranoid fantasies and over-the-top outbursts of rage were getting disturbing), but I'm thinking perhaps it was his unwise decision to seize onto the Dominion voting machine "scandal" before they started suing their slanderers. Perhaps Ezra has decided this is a good time to put some distance between the Rebel and another massive lawsuit?

Things are getting exciting, no?



Thank ya very much: I believe I foresaw something like this a couple months back.

THIS SHOULD BE GOOD:




We should start a pool.

Um .. what the fuck?

Well, this is an interesting development:




So, if I read this correctly, donors can now claim official charitable tax receipts for donating (in a roundabout way) to Rebel News? Really?

(Wag of the tail to anonymous commenter, who pointed this out.)

P.S. Here is the web site for "The Democracy Fund," whose advertised mandate does not seem to include shoveling money to Rebel News, then subsequently issuing tax receipts for that.

Also, here's the CRA page, verifying that they are, in fact, a registered charity. Again, nothing there suggests that their mandate extends to paying lawyers to represent people openly breaking the law.

BONUS TRACK: I'm perusing the information page of "The Democracy Fund" here (click on Section C), and I am positively fascinated by the answer to this question:




This does get more interesting by the minute.

OH, MAN, IT JUST GETS BETTER. From the charity's CRA page, we learn of its three directors:




And where do all of Lyndon Dunkley, Joe Nadler and Lyle Dunkley live? Huh ...




That's certainly convenient.

I'M SURE THIS IS JUST A COINCIDENCE:






OOOOHHHHHHHH, MY: As the first anonymous commenter points out, this is not the first rodeo featuring Rebel News' Ezra Levant and a couple of the aforementioned directors, based on this article from the Western Standard back in 2007:

And in closing, he hopes you all die.

In the midst of a devastating third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic with its even more virulent variants, it's comforting to know that Rebel News' Ezra Levant is still cheering for the virus.

JUXTAPOSE!

Conservatives: "Private businesses have the right to discriminate in any way they want in terms of what customers they choose to serve."

Also conservatives: "Private businesses have absolutely no right to bar people from entry just because those people refuse to wear a mask."

OK, then.

JUXTAPOSE!

Just gonna leave these here ...



Yeah, about that ...
