Montreal Simon: Ezra Levant’s Grotesque International Embarrassment

For years Ezra Levant has disgraced himself, and disgusted decent people all over Canada, with his ugly professional bigotry, and his total lack of class.Or the way he begs for money all the time, like a screaming beggar.But now Levant and his hate mongering rag The Rebel have finally hit rock bottom. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Horror Story: A Week At Sea With Ezra Levant

As you may know, Ezra Levant and his ratty Rebels like to organize Caribbean cruises every now and then.So the porky Rebel Commander can get a little sun, and milk a little more money out of his faithful supporters.And while I've written about them before, I've never read what it's like to actually be trapped ...

Montreal Simon: Milo Yiannopoulos and the Rebel Media Groupies

I have always despised Milo Yiannopoulos so much, I can barely write about him without feeling like throwing up.He is an alt-right clown, a grotesque misogynist, a bigot and a bully if ever there was one, a man who calls Donald Trump "Daddy."And from my personal perspective, the gay equivalent of an Uncle Tom.So I must ...

Montreal Simon: The Ezra Levant Horror Show and the Con Bigots

As you know, when I heard that Kellie Leitch had described Ezra Levant's latest bigot fest as a meeting of "severely normal people" I was naturally sceptical.For how could anyone call a meeting organized by Levant and his scummy Rebel gang, and starring four Con candidates, and the bloated homophobe Charles McVety, anything but a freak show? But then ...

Montreal Simon: The Sad Fate of the Bigot Harper Party

This is how the Cons would like us to imagine them. As the kind of party that would send out a Valentine card like that one.Inviting us to bee their friends.But of course, the Cons and the truth don't go as well together as honey and peanut butter.And this is who they really are.Read more ...

Montreal Simon: Ezra Levant and the Con Bigot Show

It's hard to believe, it couldn't be more ugly, or less Canadian.But just two weeks after a white supremacist killed six Muslims in a Quebec City mosque, and wounded eight others.A group of Con leadership candidates attended a foul rally in Toronto last night to denounce a government motion aimed at doing more to fight Islamophobia.Read ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Your Daily Nazi: Nazi Salutes At Rebel Media Event Attended By CPC Leadership Candidates

BigCityLib Strikes Back: You’re Daily Nazi: Nazi Salutes At Rebel Media Event Attended By CPC Leadership Candidate

Nazi salutes at Rebel event. https://t.co/U2cILtsG3A — Bigcitylib (@Bigcitylib2) February 16, 2017 Also, this guy talking to Ms. Leitch looks familiar (albeit thinner than usual):But I’m not sure enough to name him.  Not surprising though if Toronto’s White Nationalist elite all showed up to this thing.

Montreal Simon: The Con Bigots and the Quebec City Massacre

I wonder how Kellie Leitch, our sad Trump impersonator, is feeling today. Not so good I imagine. Or should I say, I hope.For on Saturday as I told you yesterday, she attacked a private member's bill designed to crack down on violent Islamophobia. Only to look like an idiot or a beast the very next ...

Montreal Simon: Ezra Levant, Kellie Leitch, and the Rebel’s Fake News Problem

As you know, the time I checked to see what Ezra Levant was up to, he was blushing with pride after being called a "true Canadian patriot" by Nick Kouvalis, Kellie Leitch's campaign manager.And of course furiously begging for money, as he does every day of the year, after losing a costly appeal. Well now it ...

Montreal Simon: Michael Harris on Why Kellie Leitch Should Fire Nick Kouvalis

As you know, I believe that Kellie Leitch's campaign manager Nick Kouvalis has made a big mistake by leading the hapless Leitch down the road to Trumpland.And has let his own passion for Donald Trump cloud his judgement, to the point where he is now even spreading fake news.So I'm glad to see that Michael Harris also ...

Montreal Simon: Ezra Levant’s Horrible and Expensive Year’s End

As we all know Ezra Levant spends a lot of his time begging for money. And I mean a lot of time.There isn't a day that goes by that he can't be seen rattling his tin cup, or bellowing through his bullhorn.So I'm sorry to report that his begging is about to become even more ...

Alberta Politics: Rogue One, a Right Wing Wars Story: wherein the Wildrose Party’s Derek Fildebrandt slips his leader’s leash

PHOTOS: Wildrose Party Finance Critic Derek Fildebrandt going rogue at Rebel Media’s Calgary anti-everything rally last Sunday (CBC photo). Below: Progressive Conservative leadership candidate Jason Kenney as imagined for this story’s rather labored metaphor. (They said I couldn’t do it. Actual PC leadership contenders may not appear exactly as illustrated.) Plus, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean, ...

Alberta Politics: Death threats, a noose on a hockey stick, opponents kicked out … Calgary Rebel Media rally was another goon show

PHOTOS: They say a photo is worth a thousand words. This one, taken at Ezra Levant’s Rebel Media rally in Calgary yesterday, certainly speaks for itself. Obviously, not all the NDP supporters were successfully purged from the meeting. Below: Chris Alexander, Mr. Levant and Kellie Leitch. Mr. Aleander and Ms. Leitch appears in CBC photos ...

In This Corner: Stuff Still Happens, week 49: On the ‘lock her up’ chant, and the woman they DID lock up.

Last Saturday, the right-wing rabble rouser, Ezra Levant, roused the rabble just enough to host an anti-carbon tax rally at the Alberta legislature. The crowd of probably a few hundred heard the usual stuff from the usual suspects, and the event was mostly uneventful. The Edmonton Journal’s story on the rally, in the Monday paper, ...

Montreal Simon: The Professional Bigotry of Ezra Levant

When Ezra Levant organized an anti-carbon tax rally on the steps of the Alberta legislature last Sunday, he was no doubt hoping it would make him a force to be reckoned with in that province, and a ton of money.Not necessarily in that order.But as we all know it all went horribly wrong, when Chris Alexander ...

Alberta Politics: ‘Oh, there you go Bradsplaining again!’ Like it or not, Brads from Saskatchewan just can’t control their Bradsplaining

PHOTOS: Federal Conservative leadership candidate and Bradsplainer Brad Trost shows he’s hip to the jive with this newfangled technology stuff. (Photo from BradTrost.ca.) Below: Brad Wall, another well-known Bradsplainer, Bradsplaining, and blogger word-coiner Dave Cournoyer, kitted out to observe one of Rebel Media’s rallies. Uh-oh! We’re about to be “Bradsplained”! Bradsplaining, a useful coinage by ...

Alberta Politics: They can still feel shame! Conservative leaders duck and cover in wake of Saturday’s disgraceful display

PHOTOS: Chris Alexander, at the moment the chant of “lock her up” began from the right-wing mob at the Alberta Legislature Saturday. Does this look to you like a man who is “shocked, taken aback, mortified even”? Me neither. Below: Michael Chong, Deepak Obhrai, Rona Ambrose and Brian Jean, all among the conservative leaders running ...

daveberta.ca – Alberta Politics: That Totally Weird Anti-Carbon Tax Rally

While I am in the mood to dispense political advice, my next pro tip goes out to Wildrose leader Brian Jean, who was a featured speaker at Ezra Levant’s totally weird anti-carbon tax rally. Mr. Jean and Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA… Continue Reading →

Montreal Simon: Chris Alexander and the Ezra Levant Freak Show

As you may know, the story of Chris Alexander has always reminded me of the Oscar Wilde story The Picture of Dorian Gray. Where the portrait of the once promising young diplomat morphs into something monstrous, after he sells his soul to Stephen Harper.Well yesterday that portrait became even uglier, if that's possible.After Alexander disgraced himself ...
