Three more Liberal cabinet ministers have censored Rebel News. So we’re suing them. You can read our 21-page lawsuit for yourself further below or by clicking here.
What’s so crazy is that they’re doing to us exactly what Steven Guilbeault, Trudeau’s extremist environment minister, did to us — and he was smashed in Federal Court.
Guilbeault blocked us on Twitter. Not from his personal account but from his official government account, the one that makes government announcements, the one that is run by an army of non-partisan civil servants.
That’s illegal. It’s a government service. It would be like the passport office not giving us passports just because we criticize Trudeau.
THE LEGAL FIGHT: ROUND 1
It took us two years in court, but we finally beat Guilbeault. Not only was he ordered to unblock us, but he was ordered to keep us unblocked for the rest of his career, as long as he’s an MP. And because he fought us in court so obstinately, he was ordered to pay us $20,000.
(That sounds like a ton of money, but unfortunately, it cost us much more than that to fight him for two years.)
WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE?!
Now you’d think that politicians would have gotten the message: don’t censor people just because you’re powerful. But three other cabinet ministers have followed suit, blocking three different Rebel News journalists.
Marci Ien, Karina Gould and Ya’ara Saks — the cabinet minister who literally said that when the trucker convoy honked its horns, “honk honk” was some sort of secret code for “Heil Hitler”. So you can see the calibre of person we’re dealing with.
But seriously: how dumb is it for Liberal cabinet ministers to block us now, after Steven Guilbeault was ordered to unblock us and to pay us $20,000?
Do they think we’re tired or that we’ve given up? Or that maybe we wouldn’t notice?
THE LEGAL FIGHT: ROUND 2
It’s a pretty simple lawsuit. Click here or scroll down below to see it. We’re not even asking for money — other than our legal costs. We just want our constitutional rights.
We filed the lawsuit in federal court. We served it on the government. And now it’s their move.
And this will be telling. What will they do?
Will they acknowledge what we all know — that they are going to lose, so why not just do the right thing now?
Or will they spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars fighting us, like Guilbeault did?
Well, they’re Liberals. What do you think they’re going to do?
WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE?
The trouble is, these three Liberals are using taxpayers' dollars to fight us — so they literally couldn’t care less. We, on the other hand, get no money from the government. We’re 100% crowdfunded. If you can support us, please chip in right here on this page.
When we first filed our lawsuit against Steven Guilbeault, I wondered if the infringement was too unimportant. But erosions of our freedom usually start small and grow larger. And they’re easier to fight when they are still small. So, let's nip this censorious behaviour in the bud.
Most of the time when we fight for freedom, we’re alone in court. And we’re usually up against an army of Trudeau government lawyers.
Please, if you can, help us level the playing field by chipping in. (Thank you.)
By the way, if you've been blocked yourself by one of our elected officials, there's also a link further down below to a form you can fill out to report that to us too.
Unfortunately, Rebel News is under attack by other government censors, too. That’s the thing about the left: they’re relentless, and they hate the idea of an independent news organization that doesn’t obey them. If you can help us stay strong, please make a donation. I promise I’ll keep fighting for freedom. (Thanks.)
