This past Saturday, I was in Aylmer, Ontario to cover an anti-lockdown protest.
I did not have security with me because the people who assembled at the community centre were not Antifa types, and have been friendly to our Rebel News reporters. There was also a huge police presence at the protest that day.
Alas, the unhinged types were members of a counter-protest across the street from the rec centre — people who were actually advocating for MORE government clampdowns on our freedoms due to the pandemic.
Well, because we always believe in telling the other side of the story, I tried to interview some of the counter-protesters.
While many were vulgar, they were mostly peaceful. Mostly, I say, because as I was interviewing one demonstrator, a young woman interrupted our discussion, yelling something that sounded like, “Wear an F’ing mask!”
So, I approached her for clarification and, well, some person thought he was within his rights to grab my hands, steal my microphone, and then smash it on the sidewalk, ruining it.
Can you help us identify this man?
Do you know his name? Please don’t harass this person in any fashion. We believe in the rule of law, and we’ll seek a measure of justice in the criminal civil courts, not on the streets.
We’ll pay $500 to the first person to positively identify this man to us, so our lawyer can take appropriate action — and yes, we will keep your identity confidential.
You can fill out this form, or you can send a confidential email to tips@RebelNews.com.
Perhaps what was even more egregious is that the Aylmer Police, who were quick on the scene, refused to arrest and press charges against this man.
He was simply allowed to retreat… I guess because he was a “correct” protester?
If the police are not going to press charges, then we will indeed pursue a civil lawsuit or even a private prosecution. But in order to get that rolling, we need a name.
