They want to kill the Rebel. It’s now or never. Ezra shows you his plan to fight back

A lot of people want The Rebel to die, and this seems to be their moment; they’re all piling on.

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    I was just getting ready to ask what’s up.
    Is Gavin leaving?
    Heard it in the 4chatter

    • Yes he is. Also leaving Taki’s I hear, has a deal in the US.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        Yeah, I heard that too.
        I wish him luck, but I have no idea what he’s doing with his “proud boys” thing.

    Ezra’s plan is on the right track. First he is stepping down on the editorial decision making (his main weakness) and focusing on his show and conservative activism (his strong point). Crowdfunding will now be transparent considering all the LEGITIMATE questions made about where the money is going. However the Rebel needs to diversify its revenue streams such as commercials during the shows and advertisement banners on the website. Canada needs the Rebel so more Canadians don’t succumb to the leftist propaganda of the MSM such as the CBC, Toronto Star. I hope the Rebel becomes more of a series news source rather than a gong show with the comedy. I like comedy but when you are trying to be taken seriously the comedy gets in the way of the hard journalism.

    • They have weathered the worst of it, very few subscribers lost.

    • El Martyachi ✓ᴴᵉˡᶦᶜᵒᵖᵗᵉʳᶦˢᵗ

      C’mon.. the comedy is important! They can do both!

    • k2

      I wish they’d bring Faith Goldy back. (Sigh ….)

      • Shame on you, you only like her for her brains!

        Seriously though she’s smart and very articulate, and it’s that last characteristic that raised the comfort level to share some of her vids with certain “educated” acquaintances who are picky on presentation and language skills — people who would otherwise not watch Rebel.

        • k2

          Yes, it’s strictly her intelligence that is attractive 😉 But, looks and intelligence aside, she is passionate, confident and charismatic – she strikes me as a born leader, actually. I wonder if she’d ever consider politics ….

  • BillyHW

    The mainstream career journalists hate the fact that Ezra created something they couldn’t do in their wildest faggoty-cuck dreams, so now they need to destroy it with whatever lies work.

    • That’s a big part of it.

      • BillyHW

        They hate The Rebel especially because it became an effective, powerful voice not beholden to the Left or the regulators.

    • Ho Hum

      I think they are also jealous that some of the top people on the Rebel (past and present) are more famous outside of Canada than any other Canadian media person. I doubt many people outside of Canada have ever heard of Peter Mansbridge or the frumpy freckled faced bitch that replaced him. Laura Southern, Faith Goldy , Ezra, Gavin McGuiness are well known outside of Canada.

    Ezra needs to go.

        Actually the money was over RENT for the 4 bedroom house they signed a year lease for to be closer to Tommy Robsinson, to house the UK team and build a studio which Ezra encouraged them to do. (On video as well)

        They didn’t ask for “Hush money” over Rebel finances
        they asked for money to cover the rest of the year rent.

        Tommy agreed to have a chunk of his pay taken by Ezra and have it go to that.

        Ezra is twisting the hell out of the whole thing and playing the victim.

        Here’s the full unedited audio.,

        • BillyHW

          Ezra’s biggest mistake was hiring that British Luca Magnotta homosexual. Hopefully he’s learned his lesson and will never hire another shifty faggot again.

        • El Martyachi ✓ᴴᵉˡᶦᶜᵒᵖᵗᵉʳᶦˢᵗ

          I tried listening to it, but until there’s either a transcript or I’m being paid to.. am not gonna listen to damn near an hour of difficult audio. What I did hear didn’t appear damning at all.

          Ezra knows this recording is out and addresses it openly. I’m not gonna side with a couple of weasel brit twinks over the guy who’s done more for Canadian freedom of speech than anyone in recent memory. His first mistake was letting foxes into the henhouse, and AFAICT his second mistake was trying to do shadowy deals with them. These two are at best neurotic self righteous flakes or worse — plants of the wrecker variety.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Ezra other businesses failed because of mismanagement of funds.

          • BillyHW

            So did Henry Ford’s.

    • PaulW

      So now they’ve posted details about where they’ve been spending money, does it still appear that Ezra and co. are gouging the shite out of the Rebel supporters? Have they been fair according to the books?

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        Just started watching the video…

        • Read the article too. There’s a difference between a “Domain Name” and a “Domain Name Server” (DNS) — the latter was apparently who refused requests from the Web host. I mention it because someone commented on an earlier post that there might be something questionable about how Levant was representing that. Nothing questionable there — unless you’re expecting the guy to give everybody a free course in Internet tech in order to explain everything. IMO.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Ya well, Ezra is asking for money again with yet another petition to collect email addresses which was one of the focus points of the attacks on Rebel.. Ezra and his petitions became it’s own meme this week.

            Where the hell is the Premium funds going (over $1 million per year according to VICE interviews with former employees) and
            the hundreds of thousands he’s pulled in the last year alone?

            It stinks to high heaven, Ezra has got his fingers in the Rebel media slush fund like he did with his magazine which tanked over mismanagement of funds.

          • Why don’t you write them and ask them where the Premium funds are going? I dunno, 45 employees worldwide, salaries, overhead, etc. And if the guy somehow becomes a millionaire after expenses, why is it unethical to become a millionaire? It’s a private business! Although I’m not a subscriber myself (neither am I a donor to any of the causes), if a guy can get rich off $8 bucks a month subscriptions, I call that pretty sharp entrepreneurism.

            As far as e-mail addresses, seems to me people are giving them voluntarily. Or are you suggesting that he’s stealing the addresses or collecting them without peoples knowledge?

          • Maggat

            I could tell you how Ezra handled the collapse of his magazine and his honourable settlement to us subscribers. I have the greatest faith in his integrity and his desire to steer Canadians from the comfortable traps of the liberal progressive elites.
            So, to put it bluntly, you can go and piss up a rope.

          • David Murrell

            I disagree with you as to the financial viability of the Western Report. I ran a small circulation snailmail newsletter during the 1990s (circulation 1,000), and advertised in the WR. Advertising revenue was so bad that the WR gave me a discount of 50% for each ad – and I only took one ad once a year. My feeling is that it is tough to operate politically-conservative media in Canada, given the small market and the rather disorganized state of conservatism here.

            Ezra has to pay the bills to keep his business up and running. He is an innovator to try to market conservative views — and contrast that to traitors (Michael Coren, Jonathan Kay) who turned their backs on conservatism and accepted left-wing money. My only criticism with Ezra is that some on his staff seemed comfortable with far-rightists.

    • You need to watch the full 45 minute video. A lot of questions are explained. For example each of those separate web sites are set up for donations for a specific cause, of which there are many — everything from the Speers family, to helping people who were affected by the wildfires in Alberta (for which they actually received a thank-you note from NDP Premiere Notley, no fan of the Rebel).

      It makes sense because Rebel is supposed to be a journalistic venture — charitable causes and related donations are kept separate and using separate web sites. It sounds like a responsible way to do crowdfunding and an easier way to track it. IMO.

    • Maggat

      Piss off!

  • Brett_McS

    It’s actually quite normal, and a sign of success, for a small-but-growing company to have to bring in a full time manager to replace the original founder/manager.

  • Dave

    Unless Faith is given an apology and asked to return…

  • Nicholas Danylyshen

    Here’s my response to the rediculous claims of ‘gouging’, ‘scamming’, and the like etc etc.
    1. Do you like what he is doing? If so…
    Who cares?
    I can only imagine the shenanigans that goes on in the darkest corners of so called ‘mainstream’ media, so um…shut up?

  • Shebel

    Canada really does need The Rebel.
