"Justin Trudeau is a gorgeous man."
Loomer, 24, is a journalist and activist for The Rebel Media, the Canadian right-wing organization founded by Ezra Levant. “Through a mix of online engagement, commenting, advocacy, and events, we don’t just report the news, we participate in it,” their site’s About Us page states. Loomer argued that she rushed the stage and disrupted the play because she was standing up for her country, as well as President Donald Trump. She also called the production’s depiction of the president as Julius Caesar to be “assassination porn.”
It appears that Loomer was prepared for the both the promotional and legal consequences of her actions.
I'm glad Ezra Levant is becoming known for the asshole he is. And Levant is such a shady character, so lacking in integrity that even though he is Jewish he's happy to support anti-Semites, as Joe Conason reports:
It’s important to note that Loomer works for right-wing Canadian media outlet Rebel Media, and until late May, so did Posobiec. The blog Canadaland describes it as a Breitbart-esque site filled with contributors who “have called for a new Crusade to expel Muslims from the ‘Holy Land,” outlined what they “hate about the Jews,” and most recently, said that British Muslims are “enemy combatants,” at least some of whom should be placed into camps.”I was excited to discover Canadaland via Conason - they really don't like Levant and they keep track of him. And they report when his employees, with his help, rant against Jews:
On Tuesday morning, a day and a half after denying he hates Jews, The Rebel Media’s Gavin McInnes posted a video entitled “10 Things I Hate About Jews.”Well I already believe it's very likely that Levant hates himself for being gay, so I wouldn't be surprised if he also hates himself for being Jewish. He's a seriously screwed up person.
But within 12 hours, and after receiving some blowback, The Rebel made the unusual move of changing the title to “10 Things I Hate About Israel.”
“I chose both headlines,” Rebel head Ezra Levant tells CANADALAND in an email. “I liked the first one because it was provocative; but then I changed it to the second one because it was more descriptive. I should probably have stayed with my first instincts.”
