50 Armed Police Raid Rebel News Reporters Airbnb, Arrest Them for ‘Illegal Gathering’ While Reporting on Lockdown Protests

50 heavily armed police just raided the hotel where our Rebel News reporters were staying in Montreal. I told them they couldn’t come in without a search warrant. So instead they manhandled me. They handcuffed Keean Bexte. And They just put David Menzies in the back of a police car. Police have sealed off the AirBnb we were staying in with police tape — they say it’s a “crime scene”. Of course it’s not. In fact, when we asked them what the “crime” was, all they could come up with was that our staying in the hotel was an illegal “gathering,” contrary to Quebec’s lockdown laws.

That’s obviously not true. It is a registered, legal hotel rental on Airbnb. In fact, we had fewer guests than the facility is built for. This is the same Montreal police who have harassed and assaulted our reporters for weeks. This is their revenge. Because we report on their misconduct.

I’m very upset by this. And I remember that, several times, Montreal police have pulled our reporters over and called us “Jew Media” or asked if we’re “Jews”. I can’t help but think that’s a bizarre anti-semitic motivation. That sure isn’t professional policing. David is still in the back of the police car. Our lawyer is on the scene. I’m mad as hell.

I need your help. We have to defend David. And we have to sue the police. Enough is enough. I’m sick of them assaulting our people. If you can help me, please do. This is going to be expensive to sue the second-largest police force in Canada.

Rebel Commander Ezra Levant tweeted a video Saturday morning that showed Levant providing his name to police and promising to sue the force for assault and false arrest.

Rebel News reporters have previously been arrested ticketed and detained by Montreal police.

Levant explains that 17 Rebel reporters from across the country are currently in Montreal in response to the ongoing harassment of Rebel News’ Montreal-based reporter Yanky Pollak by police. Montreal police have been caught on video using racial slurs directed at Rebel News reporters.
