It was over a week ago that I (along with others) pointed out that lunatic white nationalist and professional grifter Tamara Lich clearly violated her bail conditions.
Oh, look ... from just yesterday:
Cue the shrieking about fascism. Or censorship. Or Communism. Anything but Lich violating her bail conditions.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, Lord, the dishonesty:
No, Lich was not arrested for criticizing the government; she was arrested for breaching her explicit and unequivocal bail conditions. What part of that is so difficult to comprehend?
P.S. More of Ezra's lies:
AFTERTHOUGHT: Does anyone else think this is all deliberate, so that Lich can once again play the victim and grift another truckload of cash from decidedly gullible and brain-damaged supporters?

I have opined on this before, but when the religiously devout begin screeching about how God so loves the fetuses, feel free to point out that that very same Christian God, in a fit of pique, sent a worldwide flood to kill virtually every human being on the planet, including pregnant women and, consequently, their unborn children, making the Christian God the most renowned mass murderer of fetuses in the history of the universe.
I'm glad we had this little chat.
And just as I predicted, Rebel News -- which has spent month after month shrieking "FREEDOM!" and insisting that the government has absolutely no right to interfere with the personal health choices of citizens -- is currently creaming itself over the U.S. Supreme Court depriving women of the freedom to make their own health care decisions:
I'm sure you're shocked by the hypocrisy. Or at least a little concerned.

James Topp, who claimed to be walking across Canada to protest vaccine mandates, now openly admits that that rationale is absolute bullshit:
Perhaps someone could explain to Topp how democracy and elections work, then tell him to turn around and fuck off home.
When you think back to the three weeks of hell in February involving blaring horns, choking diesel fumes, blocked streets and deranged white nationalists shutting down local businesses and accosting locals simply for wearing masks, keep in mind that it's the Conservative Party of Canada that just invited them back to do it all over again:
The Conservative Party of Canada: Yes, they're just as fucking horrible as you'd heard.

UPPITYDATE: If you want to truly appreciate how Ezra Levant has learned how to play the system, I suggest a piece I wrote back here. I won't bother summarizing it; you can figure it out for yourself.
As recently reported, Ezra Levant and the rest of the sub-humans at Rebel News are creaming their Preston Manning Underoos over the stunning rise to #1 prominence of this piece of literary dreck from piece of human dreck Derek Smith:
It's not like the folks at Der Rebel haven't figured out how to game the system, as I have explained on occasion here. And here. And here. And here. I mean, when an execrable human being like Sheila Gunn Reid can get a bestseller while being arguably the shittiest writer in the country, well, you know how seriously to take those rankings, as a recent commenter here at CC HQ explains:
I used to wonder how the truly wretched pustules of anti-culture self-published by the Rebel "writers" and their network managed to achieve apparently legitimate "#1 Best Seller At Amazon" status. Andrew Lawton's "insider account" of the trucker's convoy currently boasts that distinction, and it hasn't even been published yet. However, it was explained to me by an editor friend who helps writers prepare their work for self-publication.
How to have a best seller:
- Seek out a category with no other recent publications. Lawton's #1 best seller is in the category "Politics in Government"; the #2 book in that category is an East Indian edition of "The Constitution of Canada", at $1.32, published in 2020. So...not a lot of competition for that number one slot.
- Buy a ton of copies to ensure a huge initial spike. This works best if you work for a right wing video group blog like the Rebel or TN, which can make the initial purchase, write it off as a marketing expense, then sell the books through their site (or give them away as promo, prizes, or whatever.)
This spike in rankings obviously lasts until the next publication enters the category - usually a week or so later. Doesn't matter - the author can still claim a #1 Best Seller.
And now you know how even worthless, untalented human wreckage like Derek Smith or Sheila Gunn Reid can slime their way to a "bestseller."
I'm glad we had this little chat.

Hey, kids, remember this from a post a while back?
Which brings us to Donna Sfetcos:
who now seems perfectly happy to be the focus of fascist, Freedom Convoy sentiment, whereupon one Freedom Convoyer is going to stop off at that store for his ice cream and, after a while, he'll bring a friend, and they'll bring friends and, soon enough, the parking lot will be sprinkled with jacked-up trucks festooned with "FREEDOM!" and "Fuck Trudeau" flags and so on.
So you deal with it right now, and that starts by firing Donna Sfetcos' white nationalist, fascist ass.
BONUS TRACK: It's worth appreciating how Sfetcos apparently went back on her word. Even Rebel News' coverage first pointed out how Sfetcos apparently agreed to simply not bring her politics to work:
So you'd think it was all resolved, right? Apparently not, as shortly thereafter, once Sfetcos became a Freedom Convoy star, she made it clear the flags were going back on:
In short, it could have all ended amicably, except for Sfetcos being utterly untrustworthy and having lied to her employer, which is just another reason to can her lying ass.

Hey, kids, remember when Rebel News Obergruppenfuhrer Ezra Levant had his pasty ass handed to him by the Ontario Court of Appeal to the tune of just over a quarter million dollars:
I have been reliably informed that he has still not turned over any of that money because (and you know what's coming) he brought an application for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, which is still pending. And if/when that silliness is kicked to the curb by the SCoC, Ezra will be asked to turn over all that cash forthwith, so if either Rebel News or its accounting department The Democracy Fund suddenly explode in a frenzy of desperate fundraising, I'm sure that would be just a coincidence.
It's not so much the image of Patrick Ross, sitting in his car for 12 minutes, seething with rage in front of a traffic light:
It's that, for someone on the run from the authorities and trying to evade his obligations under the bankruptcy regime and collection enforcement, he takes to social media to publish his location right down to the intersection.
Truly, he has a dizzying intellect.

I won't take credit for this idea, but I endorse it wholeheartedly. When the next Freedom Convoy rolls into town and sets up shop on residential streets by parking there for days on end, here's the plan. Buy a simple can of black spray paint and, late at night when everyone is sleeping, spray-paint swastikas on the doors and sides and back of those big rigs.
If those people want to act like Nazis, they might as well identify as such.
"I wonder if these kids understand the nature of their own personal liability as Directors should any dubious funding, revenue reporting, taxation, or other issues arise. I note that Ezra is not a "Director"; very wise, since it's the Directors left holding the bag when the shit hits the fan, not the shareholder."
Before arrest: "We will fight on the beaches, we will fight on the sidewalks, we will fight with our hot tubs and bouncy castles and George Foreman grills and we will never, ever surrender. We will die for our beliefs! FREEDOM!!!"
After release: "I have no regrets, booyah, fuckin' A, FREEDOM, BITCHEZ!!!"

That's it. That's the post.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote a piece wondering about the progress of Ezra Levant's crowdfunding to buy his own office building, after Ezra was (allegedly) turned down for a mortgage because he was a conservative. As you can see from that piece, at the time, the crowdfunder had collected 68% of the goal of 1,000 donations.
Interestingly, if one pops over to that fundraising page here, that status is unchanged -- still 68% -- suggesting that maybe, just maybe, some people are beginning to suffer from Ezra Begging Bowl Fatigue, being asked in every single piece published at Rebel News to open their wallets and subsidize Ezra's studio, or video equipment, or overseas travel, or constitutional lawsuits, or real estate holdings, or whatever. Which inspires the obvious question:
How's that office building purchase coming along?
Seriously, given that Ezra very explicitly claimed that he was raising money for the purchase of a building, if that's not happening, then where is all that cash going? Surely that is not an unreasonable question to ask. And if anyone knows anything more about that story, well, that's what the comments section is for.
The most shocking thing about this story is Lauren Boebert being "high price," when one would have assumed she could be had for a bottle of Jack Daniels and a pack of Marlboros.
P.S. Only $157 dollars more at the fundraiser, and you get the next installment in the ongoing series, "The Grift of the MAGA."
I made that up. You can't just use that.

On another note, only $182 more in the fundraiser and you get the next installment of "Chronicles of Ezra", wherein we check out how Ezra admits he put $96,000 on his personal American Express card in order to hand over fundraiser cash to the Red Cross.
