  • The Rebel Fact check: Muslims are lying about being Israel’s “indigenous” people Thursday July 27th, 2017
    We hear a lot these days about fake news, but what about “fake heritage?”  In the battle for international hearts and minds, being “indigenous” is a hot ticket to leftist sympathy. The Arabs haven’t been able to bludgeon Israel into physical submission, but in their lust for the indigenous status in Israel, they’re making great ...
  • The Rebel Pro-hijab kids book sends dangerous message Tuesday May 30th, 2017
    In my last Rebel video, I spoke about the hijab and the push to normalize it in our culture.  If adult women freely choose to wear the hijab, that’s concerning but essentially their business. But I get angry when I read propaganda in the form of children’s literature that pushes the hijab on little girls, and I am learning that there are more and more ...
  • The Rebel Reconciliation or vengeance? “Dead white guys” pay posthumous price for residential schools Friday May 19th, 2017
    Some Canadian aboriginal activists think the $60M Truth and Reconciliation Commission just wasn’t enough for their liking.  Staffed with 75 people, 48 of them aboriginal, which allowed our nation to hear and empathize with the testimonies of 6,000 former residential school students, didn’t result in enough “reconciliation” for their liking. ...
  • The Rebel “Stealthing”: Feminists open Pandora’s box of sexual assault double standards Friday May 12th, 2017
    As the definition of sex assault becomes broader and shallower, men become ever more vulnerable to the heavy hand of a legal system that is biased toward women.  “Stealthing” is an immoral behaviour practiced by both men and women, but only punishes men. Watch as I explain why what has come to be accepted in Canadian law as a form of “reproductiv...
  • The Rebel “A chastity belt worn on the head”: There is nothing wonderful about the hijab Friday March 10th, 2017
    While I am still free to do so without penalty, I would like to make what might one day be construed as an Islamophobic statement: I am very disturbed by a growing phenomenon in the west I would describe as hijab reverence – what seems to me a partly well-organized, a partly jump-on-the-bandwagon campaign among our left-wing cultural elites. There is nothing wonderful or cha...
  • The Rebel This teachers’ guide might be a “draft document” of Liberals’ M-103 Islamophobia “study” Thursday February 16th, 2017
    M-103, the motion now being debated in Parliament, was carefully structured to look like an innocent show of solidarity with all victims of racism in Canada, with the casual addition of “Islamophobia” as a special cause for concern.  In fact, for those who crafted the motion – and whether it was MP Iqra Khalid, its ostensible mother, or the Pr...
  • The Rebel M-103 is a modern day blasphemy law, and “all Canadians should be worried” Wednesday February 8th, 2017
    Jews are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes in Canada than Muslims. But a motion called M-103 is coming before Parliament on February 16 to urge special consideration regarding “Islamophobia” without defining the word.  M-103 could lead to curtailments of freedom of speech deemed hateful towards Muslims, but also, critically, towards Islam itself. Blasphemy laws co...
  • The Rebel Missing Mary Tyler Moore in Lena Dunham’s world Tuesday February 7th, 2017
    The death of actress Mary Tyler Moore prompted a lot of reflection upon her revolutionary TV portrayal of a modern, single woman. Her show hit the sweet spot in the development of feminism, when it was still a reform movement. The women of my generation remember it as then being fluid, optimistic and democratic rather than ideological and dogma-driven. And Moore herself fe...
