Here's ex-Rebeler Keean Bexte, suggesting that Alberta has criminalized Christianity:
Unsurprisingly, Bexte leaves out the teensy detail that Pastor Stephens sits in jail due to his refusal to stop breaking the law.
It's details like that that kind of make the story, don't you think?
Rebel News chief journalist and Linda Belcher impersonator Sheila Gunn Reid publicly acknowledges the "astronomical" expense incurred in defending a single, racist, bigoted, homophobic, law-breaking street preacher:
Tune in tomorrow to learn where all that money is actually going: Hint: It's not going to Pastor Artur.

It's public knowledge that Rebel News/Ezra Levant lost both of the recent anti-SLAPP motions against him:
and one of the clear directives of that legislation (now that the intellectual defectives on the bench here in Ontario have finally figured out how the legislation works) is that the unsuccessful plaintiff is responsible for not only his own legal costs, but the full and unabridged amount of the costs of the successful defendant he tried to SLAPP.
I have heard from moderately (un)reliable sources that, in the case of Ezra's failed defamation action against the Al Jazeera news outlet, Al Jazeera is seeking $270,000 in costs; Rebel's counsel has apparently already indicated that his firm was paid over $50,000, which means that, in the end (and barring any major changes due to the inevitable appeal), Ezra/Rebel is quite possibly on the hook for some $320,000, and that doesn't take into account the same logic applied to Ezra's crushed action against Brendan Demelle and the Narwhal News Society, whose numbers would be pure speculation.
In entirely unrelated news, Rebel's David Menzies has apparently been instructed to go out and get himself arrested again, for the sake of another desperate fundraiser.
P.S. I have been advised that Ezra/Rebel will be appealing both smackdowns, which opens up the possibility that Ezra will end up owing substantially more since the anti-SLAPP costs structure applies to appeals as well.
Feel free to do the math.
RUMOURS ... It's worth mentioning that there are (as of yet) unsubstantiated rumours that white supremacy memorabilia enthusiast Keean "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" Bexte bailed on Rebel News because he saw all this money coming in and thought he deserved a larger slice of the pie, only to watch truckloads of all that dosh go (quite legally, apparently) to Ezra and his perpetual legal fees and judgments.
That seems to be a pattern, as Frank Magazine reported back in early 2017 how Rebel Media co-founder Brian Lilley might have jumped ship for the same reason:
In any event, given the amount of carefully-crafted fine print one finds all over Rebel News, it's likely that all of this is perfectly legal; on the other hand, one would certainly understand the quiet grumbling from the pixel-stained wretches toiling away at Der Rebel who watch hundreds of thousands of dollars rolling in month after month, and wondering when they're going to get their share.

There's something actually quite refreshing about the fact that Rebel News is, to its very core, absolutely racist and they don't really give a damn who knows it. It's a simple matter to use their handy-dandy search feature to see which stories get press, and which get flushed. Here, allow me to demonstrate.
As of this morning, here's the Rebel's less-than-overwhelming coverage of the ongoing horror of hundreds of graves at Canada's residential schools:
Here's Der Rebel's even less overwhelming coverage of an obviously racially-motivated hate crime that resulted in the murder of four Muslims by someone in a pickup truck:
By contrast, here's the Rebel's 24/7/365, relentless, wall-to-wall, gushing, fellatiotastic coverage of a racist, misogynistic, homophobic white evangelical Christian pastor whose story is that he simply gets arrested when he breaks the law:
I trust I've made my point.
BONUS TRACK: I would be remiss in not pointing out that, even as Ezra and the assorted white hoods at Der Rebel fawn over evangelical Christian and man-shaped piece of human garbage Artur Pawlowski -- praising him endlessly for his principled stand against the man and for defying pandemic lockdown regulations -- here's Rebel's David "The Menses" Menzies spying on mosques to make sure they're not getting out of hand:
It's something, isn't it?

While I'll have far more to say about Rebel News' sketchy "Fight The Fines" fundraising campaign, I am absolutely fascinated by this recent admission by Rebel Obergruppenfuhrer Ezra Levant:
That would be Ezra, openly admitting that donations to Der Rebel are not eligible for charitable tax receipts, and here's why that is so entertaining.
Those with long memories might recall that Ezra sued me for defamation back in 2016 for talking smack about his Fort McMurray fundraiser, and a fundamental plank in Ezra's complaint was that it was defamatory for me to claim that, as neither Ezra nor Rebel Media was a registered charity under CRA guildelines, donors to his fundraiser were not going to get tax receipts as, quite simply, they were not eligible. I did not think this was in any way a remarkable statement, as it was simple CRA regulations; Ezra, on the other hand, howled that my stating that was clearly defamatory, and malicious to boot.
Fast forward to 2021, wherein we find Ezra now openly admitting that I was, in fact, entirely accurate and that Rebel News is not qualified to give out charitable tax receipts.
It is going to be an interesting trial.

Just a reminder that Ezra Levant and Rebel News are still begging for another $50K to argue the unconstitutionality of "Trudeau's COVID jails":
even after publicly admitting that none of this will be relevant in two weeks:
So donate now, while there's still time to be a gullible twonk.
P.S. Hilariously, while sobbing inconsolably over people who need to spend time at a hotel, Ezra and the rest of the yobs at Der Rebel long ago lost interest in a racist who murdered most of a family of Muslims with a pickup truck, as evidenced by this morning's search over at Rebel:
That's it. That's the post.

Rebel News: "It's outrageous that Canadian citizens should be subject to the horrific, appalling, degrading, soul-crushing experience of having to sit in a hotel and eat substandard food for a few days! Oh, the humanity!!!"
Also Rebel News: "So a 15-year-old Omar Khadr was imprisoned and tortured in Gitmo for 10 years. Big fucking deal. It's not like he's white or anything. Get over it."

BREAKING: "The court kicked to the curb our illiterate idiocy scrawled with crayon on the back of an Arby's napkin, so send us $350,000 so we can keep buying the good gin!"

Take a minute to appreciate the dumbassitude contained herein:
So, just to be clear, all Pastor Tim needed to do to be back with his family was to ... agree to stop breaking the law.
I think we're done here.
BONUS TRACK: Yes, Sheila really is as dumb as you'd heard.
