Faith Goldy and The Rebel Meltdown



She was Ezra Levant's pet and Andrew Scheer's favourite Rebel journalist talking head. And for good reason.

She's a religious fanatic like Scheer, she calls him "our people," she once demanded that the Pope excommunicate Justin Trudeau.

And she's called for Christians to mount a new crusade to take back the Middle East from the Muslims.

But yesterday evening, not even divine intervention could save Faith Goldy.



When she was fired by Ezra Levant.

Not apparently for praising white supremacists at that Nazi rally in Charlottesville...



And triggering a total meltdown at the ratty Rebel.

But as she explained...


After first blasting the media for labelling her a neo-Nazi supporter.

The stale media sources now running a campaign to discredit me (and my freedom-fighting alligator-hided former boss) are the same cabal who labeled me a neo-Nazi and white supremacist at several other junctures in my career.

For appearing on a podcast affiliated with the American Nazi website the Daily Stormer.

Since that video it has come to the public's attention that I appeared on a podcast affiliated with the Daily Stormer while in Virginia. I made a poor decision that has had unintended personal and professional consequences on those I care about the most.

I cannot ask my friends and colleagues to provide cover fire in a battle I walked towards -- of my own volition in spite of their warnings. For that reason I am relieved Ezra made the difficult decision for me by terminating my contract with The Rebel.

Which was apparently too much even for Ezra Levant...



But then Levant has been making a lot of claims recently as The Rebel goes into total meltdown.

Rebel Media, the far-right news organization that Ezra Levant built from the remnants of the Sun News Network, appeared in near total meltdown on Thursday, losing more high-profile contributors, facing accusations of financial mismanagement and being shunned by leading conservative politicians as the shock of the Charlottesville neo-Nazi protests reverberated through Canada.

Claiming that the monstrous misogynist and all round grub Gavin McInnes left because  Levant couldn't afford him. 

In an email to the media news site Canadaland, Levant said The Rebel had “tried to keep (McInnes), but he was lured away by a major competitor that we just couldn’t outbid.” 

McInnes did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.


Claiming the Con media is only after him because he's too right-wing.

And of course claiming he is being blackmailed...



After a former employee, Caolan Robertson, made some devastating allegations about the way Levant runs The Rebel.

In an explosive video posted to YouTube on Thursday, featuring secretly recorded audio of Levant, Robertson claimed The Rebel has dishonestly solicited donations in excess of the costs of creating its content, concealed its use of the money, and oriented its news agenda around stories that can be turned into activist campaigns, generating a vast database of email addresses of sympathetic viewers and readers who can be mobilized for fundraising.

Robertson claims Levant flew to England to offer him thousands of dollars in what Levant described in the recording as “hush money,” and threatened legal action if Robertson or his partner and producer, George Llewelyn-John, were to try to sell their story to a British tabloid.


Allegations so explosive I believe they have the potential to reduce The Rebel to its original state...



Which would be a good thing, and about time.

And as for Faith Goldy, I'm sure she'll land on her four two feet... 



These days in Con circles there's always room for a Nazi sympathizer, with a small brain, but a yappy mouth big enough to swallow a train.

Bye Bye Faith Goldy.

Good riddance to bad rubbish...

  1. I was wondering what was going to happen to Goldy as the walls starting coming down at the Rebel. I'm sure Levant didn't want to fire her, after all she shares his grotesque views, but she's a liability now and he's in defense mode. Sadly, Goldy, and the others like her, will find employment somewhere (look at Lauren Southern) where they can continue to spew their nonsense to a receptive crowd. Hate is easy to sell.

    1. hi Joe...I think Levant is now in survival mode, and after Goldy's grotesque little Nazi party she just had to go. I'm sure if he could he would have kept her, because she's quite popular with his zombie horde, and just glancing through the Rebel comments I see some of them are so disappointed they are threatening to end their subscriptions. So she might after all be a useful bigot....

    Wow can't believe it. All their "stars" are gone, they have almost no talent left.

    From what I've read in the comments on FB and YouTube, half his base is turning on him, the other half still supports him.

    1. hi anon...yes, they are looking very thin, and Levant has had to change the layout to cover up all the holes. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the street offering people cash or food to join the Rebel. It was always a tawdry little website, and now it looks like a high school project...

  5. Why conservative pundit Brian Lilley is parting ways with Rebel Media

    1. hi David...I always considered Lilley to be the Laurel of that Laurel and Hardy show. And judging from what that English guy said in that tape, the parting with Levant was not smooth. But I haven't the slightest bit of sympathy for him because he was there long enough to know what that site was all about. He seems to suggest it became toxic in the last six months or so, but it has been stinking out their airwaves for years...

      @Simon -- Lilley was Ezra's sidekick dating all the way back to the Sun TV days. He's worked with that moron for the better part of a decade. He knows what Ezra is all about, from the comments about Romani people to the vicious accusations of cheating with a newlywed bride against Trudeau, and he stuck with him nevertheless. No sympathy for that guy. He's about as much of a "credible journalist" as any other hack in the con press, including Breitbart, Murdoch's trash on Fox (and Sky in the U.K. and Australia), and the bad Sinclairs in the USA. Lilley Livered and spineless is more like it.

    Fascist Faith has been fired, 5 days after her disgusting display of sympathy for the neo-nazis and nowhere can I find her displaying any remorse for what happened in Virginia or any sympathy towards the Heyer family. There's a four letter word that best describes her but I wont utter it here out of respect to you Simon and your followers.
    The last few days are a beginning to the legacy of Heather Heyer's senseless murder. You did not die in vain Heather. The demise of The Rebel is in motion, Whatever reputation Faith Goldy had is gone, Trump has so many of his own people fed up with him that I can't see him recovering from this.
    RIP Heather, you will never be forgotten.

    1. hi JD...I don't expect that any of those hate mongers to show the slightest bit of remorse for what that Nazi did. You have to be a psychopath to join a hate group, and after they do they live in a parallel universe that resembles a cult. Heather Heyer had more decency in her than all of them put together...

    Hopefully Levant's stinking pile of garbage will generate enough heat to spontaneously combust and with it destroy any chance the Cons might have had to hack their way to power in the next election. Got to love Scheer's comments about the "fine line between reporting the facts and giving those (hate) groups a platform",how he "wants to talk about issues that unite us all" and "until the Rebel editorial direction changes I will not grant interviews". In what alternative universe is there a fine line between reporting facts and providing a platform for hate? As Caolin Robertson pointed out when did the Rebel ever report facts without selectively choosing and twisting them to support an activist campaign for personal gain? Scheer hopes the Rebel will repair the damage and be its good old bigoted, fear generating, Muslim / Trudeau/ reality bashing, alternative news generating self before the next election cycle .. I hope not!
    Not really a surprise to find the Con Kory Teneycke brokered the hush money deal between Robertson and Levant. Its unlikely Con involvement will ever be fully exposed but as long as they are both gone who will care?

    1. hi RT...I am disappointed at the way our hapless Con media is making it sound like Scheer has made a clean break with the Rebel, when his "condemnation" couldn't have been lamer. And his claim that he will not do any more interviews " until the Rebel editorial direction changes" makes absolutely no sense. Does he really expect Levant to change? If he does he's an idiot, and if he knows he won't but is pretending he will, he's as bad as he is. But don't worry, Scheer's lack of courage and decency will come back to haunt him. We'll make sure of that...

    Saw her on t.v. with her reports. OMG, I first thought it was a clown doing a "spoof". Not wishing to sound sexist, but that lipstick might work wonders with the fascist boys, but she looks like a drag queen gone bad. What spewed out of her mouth, not so good either.

    The Rebel obviously has been up to a lot we weren't aware of and with its melt down some of us became aware a lot of prominent Canadian politicians were involved with them also. Didn't know that at all so now the REbel has been exposed for what it is. I don't watch/read Rebel media so I honestly didn't know about the Conservative Party's involvement with them.

    Everyone has the right to their beliefs. Some of those beliefs though might be best kept to themselves. However, if it does not constitute hate speech, they're free to sound off. Its that border line area where we all have trouble. is it censorship or is it hate speech.


    Thank you for the post on this subject.

    1. hi e.a.f... as a blogger I'm only too willing to defend freedom of speech. But just a glance at Levant's Rebel should tell you that it's all about hate speech and that should not be protected for it only leads to violence. The Rebel has always been rotten, but now it has expanded into Britain and the the U.S., and all you have to do is read the comments to know what kind of people they are attracting. i.e. white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the lowest of the low...
