Media outlet that relentlessly misinforms millennials now mocks millennials for being misinformed.

P.S.: Send money.

One wonders if diehard supporters of Rebel Media are getting at all tired of their donations being used to keep Rebelers out of prison.

Well, that didn't last long.


Being "de-platformed" to deprive someone of their right to free speech ... yeah, that must just fucking suck.

AFTERSNARK: I will leave it to my readers to ponder the irony of someone who runs his own media outlet and brags of over one million YouTube Subscribers of being "de-platformed."

FURTHER MUSINGS: What are the chances that this cruise was a total fiction from the beginning, meant only for political propaganda purposes after it was cancelled due to possible "violence by extremist opponents?"

I'm just asking.

WHILE WE'RE HERE, there's a certain hypocrisy in Rebel Media whining about being de-platformed, given that Rebel has a long and inglorious history of boycotting anyone that happens to disagree with them. One can see their history of boycotts against (among others) Tim Hortons, Earls Restaurant, Porter Airlines, and Whistler Blackcomb.

It takes some nerve to announce one boycott after another, then whine about being "de-platformed." I suspect the irony is lost on some of these people.

She could have settled inexpensively but ... no.

Why exactly did Katie Hopkins file for an Individual Voluntary Arrangement? How much did she actually owe? Oh ...

At this point, five thousands pounds seems like a bargain, hindsight being what it is.

Down the memory hole.

It seems like only yesterday (well, August 11, 2018) when Ezra was sniggering publicly, just waiting for the chance to blame a Mooslim for the murder of four people, including two police officers, in Fredericton, NB:

However, the instant Ezra learned that it was just a homegrown, white boy, well, let's check out how aggressively he pursued that story starting August 12:

And the result? Ruh roh ...

I'm guessing even Joe Warmington has a longer attention span than that. Or maybe not.

AFTERSNARK: From back on August 11, here's a comment from a Rebel Media acolyte that does not seem to have aged well:

Since then, well, there's been a whole lotta quiet:

It's almost like they don't want to talk about it, being a media outlet and all.

DOUBLE PLUS AFTERSNARK: That moment when you realize that a juvenile, assholish, throwaway tweet from last year didn't age particularly well:

Well, this is ... inconvenient.

Alleged Fredericton shooter charged with killing four people including two police officers, caught on tape admitting he gets his news from (among other sources) Rebel Media:

Yeah, that's kind of awkward. Check it all out here:

AFTERSNARK: This looks like the kind of tweet from back in August that has the potential to backfire spectacularly:

Just another three-hour tour.

Apparently, the sea-faring adventurers at Rebel Media are putting together another voyage of the damned, chartering an entire luxury rowboat to putter around Europe next year. I will simply shrug my shoulders over this, except to point out the eyebrow-raising price structure.

If you book with Rebel Media, the cruise alone will cost you $3590 (USD), which most emphatically does not include airfare:

Curiously, if you wanted exactly the same cruise but generic, you would pay significantly less:

In other words, there is almost a $1700 (USD) markup for exactly the same outing, solely for the pleasure of hanging with ... I'll just leave it at that.

AFTERSNARK: Actually, it's worth noting what appears to be a truly onerous deposit/cancellation clause. First, if you put down a deposit of $1000 (USD) and have to cancel for some reason, you are not getting that $1000 back. Period.

Note also that it appears that the entire fee must be paid in full by Dec 10, 2018, which is (coincidentally) about 180 days before the cruise, after which, if you change your mind or have to cancel, you get nothing back. Zip. Nada. Squat.

Worse, the wording seems to suggest that, even if Rebel Media cancels the cruise, you are still not entitled to a refund. I could be wrong, but that's just the way I'm reading it.

I recommend travel insurance.
