The Wonderful Humiliation of the Bigot Ezra Levant
For days even as his ratty Rebel started to take on water, and half his crew abandoned ship, Ezra Levant insisted that everything was under control.
But now that ghastly bigot has finally been forced to confront reality.
Now he's finally admitting that The Rebel is in deep trouble.
And that he's not much of a Rebel Commander.
The founder of the online news site The Rebel admits its content and management need more oversight in the wake of a string of controversies.
“I’m a flawed leader who has made mistakes,” he wrote in a post on the conservative news site late Tuesday.
“But as long as you stand with me, I will still stand.”
But he's still claiming he can save the sinking ship, if his faithful suckers send him more hate dollars.
We’re going to reboot without taking a dollar from the government. We’re going to do it the same way we built the company — through your support, through crowdfunding.
Even though the man who is always accusing progressives of accepting foreign money, is now being accused of counting on foreign money to help finance his filthy operation.
Ex-staffers say the operation is fixated on building its email list and subscriber base through increasingly combative and invective campaigns. But also that The Rebel lives on “mega-donors” who underwrite the operation.
Laura Loomer and U.K. host Tommy Robinson are listed on the website as “Shillman Fellows.” That fellowship, run by tech billionaire Robert Shillman, has put money towards media personalities who tout an anti-Islam line.
But he has lost more than 15,000 subscribers in just one week. More than 300 companies have withdrawn their ad money.
That defunding campaign is continuing no matter how loudly or how absurdly he squeals...
The Canada Revenue Agency is reported to be getting ready to audit him.
And rebooting The Rebel won't be as easy as Levant would have us believe.
Not when he has lost almost all his front bench "talent," and replacing them won't be easy. Not when the stench of bigotry hangs over his grubby operation.
And not when he's caught between a rock and a hard place.
For while he needs to become more mainstream to try to make the Rebel look more respectable, he must surely know that would drive away most of his moron base who have faithfully followed him since his days at Sun News...
As well as know that it's highly unlikely that any decent Canadians would volunteer to replace them.
So while his ratty Rebel may limp on, it will never be what it once was. Or what the Rebel Commander hoped it might become.
Levant has been exposed as an ugly hate monger, and a major league loser.
He has been humiliated beyond recognition.
His hate mongering rag is going down the toilet.
And so eventually will Levant...
