"Fight the Fines": You did read the fine print, yes?

There's a much more comprehensive piece coming shortly on Rebel News' "Fight the Fines" program, but here's a tidbit you might want to mull over. It was back in November of 2020 that Rebel News Obergruppenfuhrer Ezra Levant promised all and sundry that, if they got a lockdown-related ticket, then Rebel News would be there for them. Absolutely. No exceptions. They'd have your back. As in:

Note well the wide-sweeping, all-encompassing, unambiguous assurances about "every single Canadian" and "We will fight your fine." It does give one a warm and fuzzy feeling ... until you read further down the page to find ...

Ruh roh.

Well, that's kind of a downer ... that you might go to all that trouble to get a potentially hefty fine, only to be told, "Yeah, we're kind of busy here, but good luck with that."

I just thought you might find that useful.

BONUS TRACK: Curiously, as of right now, May 17, 2021, Rebel News' official "Fight the Fines" page contains this assurance:

If only someone at Rebel News could clarify this apparent contradiction. Maybe someone should ask Adam Soos.

WHOA ... if I read this correctly, only last Friday, Rebel News' Ezra Levant was guaranteeing a free lawyer. For everyone.

This just gets interestinger and interestinger.

WHOOPS, MY BAD ... I totally missed this Twitter reply to Ezra's clearly ironclad guarantee above:

Why, Tanya, what an excellent question. And it seems to me that there's a possible story here if some enterprising journo wants to follow up with Ms. Baltzer and see how this plays out.

I suspect the phrases "fine print" and "discretion" will be involved, but that's just a guess.

ABOUT MS. TANYA BALTZER ... There is no point in taking her seriously ... you need only peruse her brief Twitter history to see why.

So in all seriousness - the Rebel appears to be making promises it can't possibly keep, playing fast and loose with CRA regulations, and actively encouraging Canadians to break the law. At what point does all this become legally actionable?

If you think this is bad, you probably want to pop by tomorrow for my continuation.

I will for sure, but my question remains the same.

Holy Christ, that Baltzer lady is a total loonbat.
