Store problemer på The Rebel – medarbejdere fyres eller går deres vej

On Tuesday, Barbara Kay, a regular contributor (and a National Post columnist) announced she would no longer appear on the site.

John Robson, another Post columnist cum Rebel contributor, did the same. Brian Lilley, who co-founded the site, said he quit entirely on Monday. (Levant says he fired Lilley last year.) On Twitter, Lisa Raitt, now the deputy leader of the Conservative Party, praised Lilley’s decision, though she stopped short of condemning The Rebel.

As the week went on, the trouble continued. On Thursday, Caolan Robertson, until two weeks ago, one of the site’s U.K. correspondents, posted a video online titled “Why I left The Rebel.” In it, he played recordings of what he said was Levant offering him “hush money” to stay quiet about details of The Rebel’s business model. Robertson also slammed The Rebel’s petitions and campaigns. “The Rebel takes its money from ordinary hardworking people,” he said. “But, it also quietly takes a lot of money from less ordinary, more wealthy people.”

Levant responded with his own post claiming Robertson and another man had blackmailed him.

But for The Rebel, the trouble wasn’t over. On Thursday night, after it came out that she had appeared on a Daily Stormer podcast, Levant fired Faith Goldy. News broke earlier that day that Gavin McInnes was also leaving the site. Not even the Rebel’s cruise was safe. The company hosting the November event, where fans would have mingled with Goldy, Levant and others on a Caribbean cruise liner, cancelled the reservation.

  1. Puha. Ezra er vist ikke rar at arbejde sammen med. Og det er trist, for jeg har set rigtig mange videoer fra Rebel Media; videoer som har gjort mig klogere på mange forhold i de kommende administratorers psyker, og de generelle strømninger i Nordamerika. Men de vigtigste personer fra Rebel – Gavin McInnes, Faith Goldie og Lauren Southern vil stadig være at finde på Youtube … lidt endnu…

  2. Det er irriterende at se vores side slås indbyrdes

    Hr Naturli’ har helt ret i at The Rebel media har lavet rigtig mange gode og informative videoer

    Det vil være kedeligt, hvis folk som Glody, McInnes og Liley ikke længere kan orientere os
    😦

    mvh TrumfEs
