Andrew Scheer's Cowardly Non Condemnation of Ezra Levant
Earlier today I wrote a post demanding to know why Andrew Scheer was hesitating to condemn the white supremacist views of Ezra Levant's bigot Rebel.
After spending so much time riding on that stinking and sinking boat.
Well now it turns out he did say something about it in B.C. last night.
And not only was it four days late, it couldn't be more pathetic.
Or more cowardly.
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer won't grant further interviews to Rebel Media if the outlet's editorial direction remains "as it is," he said at an event for supporters in British Columbia on Wednesday evening.
"Like all Canadians I viewed the events of last weekend with a great deal of disgust [at] the types of vile comments that were being made by hate groups," Scheer said. "And I think there is a fine line between reporting the facts and giving some of those groups a platform or any kind of legitimacy.
Or more outrageous.
"Anything that gives a platform to those types of obnoxious groups is certainly worth condemnation for sure."
For that's like giving a bigot a slap on the wrist...with a feather.
Especially after Scheer's grubby Cons have spent so much time at The Rebel, frolicking with those alt right freaks, or in Scheer's case even cavorting with the ghastly white supremacist Faith Goldy.
An analysis of the Rebel Media website by Press Progress reveals one-quarter of all Conservative MPs elected in 2015 have previously made appearances on the alt-right website.
That includes Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, a repeat guest of Rebel Media who gave one of his first interviews after winning the party's leadership to the alt-right website and even appeared on Goldy's show to criticize a non-binding motion condemning racism and Islamophobia.
The ghastly Goldy who thinks Scheer is "our people."
And all of those shameless Cons would, or should have known, that The Rebel has been a sewer of bigotry for a long time.
And that Ezra Levant has been a monstrous bigoted hog for as long as ANYONE can remember...
So does Scheer really think that the "editorial direction" of the ratty Rebel will ever change as long as Levant remains its leader or "Rebel Commander?"
Is he really THAT dumb?
But then it's not hard to figure out why Scheer is stroking Levant instead of condemning him.
He's a right-wing extremist himself and he knows that if he's too harsh, he could lose the support of his rabid base.
And judging by the reaction of some of them to the CBC story, he is already losing them.
He just lost my vote. Treat all news media equal, not just the fake ones. The Rebel tells it like it is, no lies and deception
Lost my vote.If this guy melts so easily over this issue, he's practically guaranteed to melt every time the Left says Boo! Another Trudeau we don't need.
Well...so much for Scheer. Absolute DUMB mistake! The ONLY media site in Canada fighting daily for freedom of speech and Canadians is the Rebel.
Which just goes to show that when you play with fire, you just might get burnt.
The alt-right Cons are caught between a rock and a hard place.
And The Rebel is still going to the place where it belongs...
