To all progressive, feminist, anti-fascist and otherwise generally sane people who, for some reason, like to feed the trolls:
Stop feeding the trolls. Seriously.
First off, really? What possibly compels you to do such a thing? No winning argument ends with a bottle of urine dumped on someone’s head. Grow up.
Second, and more importantly, all you accomplished aside from making Southern smell a bit off for a few days is help Ezra Levant pay his lackeys. The Rebel is going to fundraise off of this so hard, and you’ve guaranteed they’ll send Southern out to do more confrontations like this in the hopes of more bodily fluids being thrown.
That’s how they operate, they want to be seen as victims of the “regressive left” or whatever. The entire raison-d’étre of The Rebel is to propel forward the victimhood narrative for whites, men, the rich, and any other privileged group in the country – and throwing urine on one of its reporters is only helping them do so.
Listen, it’s hard not to react to some one like Southern, who is aggressive and offensive but also well-versed in the subject matter. Everyone has that person who gets under your skin and you just want to lash out at – but, you know, we don’t because we know it just helps their cause.
But you know how to get back at them? Just ignore them, seriously. Ignore Levant. Ignore Southern. Ignore the whole pack of Rebel trolls. Let them stew in their hate-filled world, it’s of no concern if they wish to. They are so far outside of mainstream opinion and cater to such a niche and irrelevant audience that in a few years we’ll wonder what happened to the site and these, uh, “wonderful” personalities.
Unless, of course, you propel them into the national media by pouring a bottle of piss over a reporter’s head.
Leave the trolls under the bridge and be done. Or at least refuse to pay their toll, if you can’t avoid confrontation altogether. There is no need to further pack The Rebel’s coffers with stupid stunts.Continue reading

Edmonton Northlands, the so-called ‘agricultural society’ that has been a force in Edmonton since Edmonton was in diapers, announced a sweeping plan to rebuilt the soon-to-be-vacant arena and the area surrounding it. It’s partly a great idea, and partly nutty. The great idea, if they can find $85 million between the government’s couch cushions, is […]Continue reading
Okay, Ezra won a battle this week with Alberta's NDP government. They tried to toss him from press events held by the government, and heContinue reading
Let me be abundantly clear here: I don’t like Ezra Levant. I never have. He conducts himself as a public spectacle, and has been abundantly clear that he has no respect for anyone who dares to disagree with him. That’s his choice, I don’t have to like it.
However, in reading Andrew Coyne’s diatribe on the matter (which is really just a thinly veiled attack on the CBC), it occurred to me that all of the arguments made supporting Ezra Levant fail to acknowledge the moral and ethical issues that the field of journalism in Canada has largely ignored for most of my adult life.
