He is Canada's most notorious hate monger, and his ghastly Rebel site is a sewer of bigotry.
But whether he is mocking the death of Jack Layton, or going after the Roma or the Muslims, Ezra Levant would rather call himself Canada's free speech champion.
Even though as it turns out, that couldn't be more farcical.
For in the last week he has sued this Twitter user.
Ezra Levant, the proprietor of upstart news and commentary site Rebel Media, is suing an online antagonist for defamation over a series of tweets that suggested a Rebel-sponsored crowdfunding campaign for Fort McMurray was financially benefiting Mr. Levant.
In a statement of claim filed last week in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice, Mr. Levant charges that Adam Stirling defamed him by tweeting that the campaign, which sought to raise $100,000 that Rebel would then donate to the Red Cross, could result in a tax writeoff and other benefits for Mr. Levant.
And now he is suing another.
Guess what, kids ... Ezra finally got around to serving *me* with a Statement of Claim. Details to follow.— CC (@canadiancynic) June 7, 2016
For also apparently questioning why the ghastly bigot would ask his moron readers to send relief money to The Rebel, instead of sending it directly to the Red Cross.
The blogger Dr Dawg has more on the case, and Levant's monumental hypocrisy here.
There are times that Hypocrisy stands on a mountaintop in a howling wind, his cape flapping, his voice thundering across the reaches of space and time, his mighty thews and sinews striking terror and madness in those who merely hold a double standard or two, or fail on occasion to practise what they preach.
“Pussies,” he sneers, as levin flashes overhead, and the ground trembles from sea to sea, and the seas toss their ships, aglow with St. Elmo’s fire, like toothpicks in a tornado. “Look to Ezra Levant, and tremble. You are not worthy even to speak his name.”
He asks us all to help Canadian Cynic pay for his court costs
And sums up the reasons we should, with this strong statement:
Ezra is a putz, and such creatures can not, must not prevail under any circumstances. His goose must be cooked. His dog must die.
Which is a statement I'm sure most decent Canadians would agree with, especially since it's also a useful warning.
For heaven forbid that any Canadian should think that the Rebel Commander is in the hate mongering business for the money...
As for me, in the interests of fairness and balance, I'd like to give Levant a chance to tell his side of the story.
But I can't because he's blocked me...
Even though I've never fired one solitary tweet in his general direction.
Yup, Ezra Levant, no champion of free speech.
Just a bully, a hypocrite, and a coward...
