So, just to be clear, the people who, for decades, have celebrated and defended the brutal, inhumane imprisonment of Palestinians in an open-air concentration camp will now lecture us on the massive inconvenience of lockdowns:

Conservatives: "It is vitally important that we protect, with every ounce of our being, the precious freedom and liberty we are entitled to, and that government never be allowed to strip us of those freedoms and liberties as we go about our lives, unencumbered by draconian regulations or outrageously intrusive interference on our right to make personal choices as we see fit."
Also conservatives: "Women should not be allowed to have abortions."
Even as Rebel News and Ezra Levant lament the alleged violence and thuggery of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, progressives, libtards, Montreal police, the NDP and everyone else they disagree with, can we keep in mind that, currently on his payroll, Ezra employs a full-time "journalist":
who once viciously attacked his wife with a chopping block:
Perspective. It's always helpful.
P.S. I would be remiss in not pointing out that, even with the recent revelations that GOP congressman Matt Gaetz apparently raped a 17-year-old, you will find nary a mention of this at Ezra Levant's White Hood Media Outlet and Laundromat:
Understand very clearly that the above Rebel News-wide search for the string "Matt Gaetz" was done at 05:11 the morning of April 30, 2021, and you can see that there is not a mention of the fact that Gaetz appears to be a sexual predator of underage girls. On the other hand, Ezra is happy to explain at tedious length about how Catherine McKenna blocked him on Twitter.
And now you know why the members of "Rebel Nation" are the stupidest human beings on the planet.
AFTERSNARK: While a search for "Matt Gaetz" throughout the entirety of Rebel News turns up all of three hits -- none of which mention the possibility that Gaetz raped a child -- we can see that Ezra is most certainly obsessed with Hunter Biden:
At some point, this is just plain creepy. Like "Keean Bexte chasing Greta Thunberg down a hotel hallway" creepy.

Good Lord, but the bloviating Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms just took accuracy and fed it through a woodchipper. Regarding their recent doomed action to have COVID quarantine hotels declared unconstitutional or whatever the hell they were after, here's the shrieking headline:
Really? The Federal Court said that? Well, no, not really, as the very second paragraph of that nonsense reads thusly:
While the Court did not issue the interim injunction, it found that both Charter Section 7- the right to life liberty and security of person, and Section 9 – the right not to be arbitrarily detained are engaged by the federal quarantine policies and were serious issues to be tried at a further trial.
In other words, the Court said no such thing and simply handed over the arguments to an actual trial.
The full ruling can be found here, where I draw your attention to:
In short, the ruling does not even remotely sync up with the idiotic headline on that rubbish from the JCCF.
I'm sure you're shocked.

When you literally have to explain that, no, you're not personally responsible for someone having murdered 51 people just because that gunman was a big fan of yours:
maybe it's time to think about when your life went this horribly wrong.
I'm just throwing that out there.
P.S. It occurs that, when the discussion turns to dishonesty, Ezra might want to dial it back a bit.

Much more on this later but, as I've blogged about before, Rebel News is currently bragging that, if you donate to their "Fight the Fines" program through this interesting entity called "The Democracy Fund," then your donations are (you guessed it) tax deductible:
which is some kind of interesting since neither Ezra Levant nor Rebel News is a registered charity under CRA rules, which means The Democracy Fund has agreed to use its charitable tax status to effectively "launder" donations to Rebel News, and far be it from me to suggest that CRA might want to take a close look at this, so if you wanted to suggest it, that is entirely up to you.
It's going on five years now since Rebel News' Ezra Levant lightened numerous folks' wallets with (among other things) the promise to organize a real he-man, toolbelt-wearin', snuff-chawin', pickup truck-drivin', testosterone-drippin' convoy to chug their way up to Fort Mac and help the town rebuild:
Are we allowed to ask how that convoy is coming along? I'm just curious.
Any minute now, amirite? Annnnnnnny minute now ...

This would be Derek Sloan (and Randy Hillier) making it clear that they don't care if you get sick and die, as long as they get their photo-op:
I believe Lord Farquad said it best:

From back in 2019, we get a brief glimpse into how opportunistic hacks like Ezra Levant drive traffic to their sites:
Canada's conservatives: "It's vitally important that we remain skeptical of vaccines, and gather umasked in large groups to defend our precious freedom to infect one another with a deadly virus."
Also Canada's conservatives: "Why can't we get this pandemic under control? It must be Justin Trudeau's fault!"
Here's the Sun's Anthony Furey, recently decrying the uselessness of journalistic "echo chambers":
Here's Anthony, far more recently publicly fellating right-wing crackpot and dingbat Candice Malcolm:
And here's Anthony, a member of the lunatic conservative "think tank" True North Centre, identified with his boss ... Candice Malcolm.
Refresh my memory, Tony, what were we talking about just now, oh, right ... echo chambers.
