Ezra Levant’s Caribbean cruise ship hasn’t left the dock yet and already the ol’ Hate Boat has sprung a leak.
Readers will recall how the Breitbart North supremo last year concocted a plan to relieve his unhinged followers of thousands of dollars from their dwindling RRIFs: The Ship of Tools, a week-long voyage through Caribbean islands, featuring Ezra’s posse of Rebel loudmouth-breathers.
Most sane folks would prefer a week-long colonoscopy to getting shanghaied with the likes of Brian Lilley, Faith Goldy and Candice Malcolm, but Ez’ is counting on the Rebel faithful to join him aboard Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam, sailing Nov. 20.
Alas, the cruise has gone woefully undersubscribed, forcing the little pisher to offer free welcome cocktails, complimentary Timbits, free bingo daubers and rehydration salts for that inevitable bout of Norwalk, lest the entire enterprise sink like the Bismarck.
Worse, Ezra’s star attraction on the cruise has pulled out. Just a few months ago, Ez’ was raving about Milo Yiannopoulos, poster boy for the alt-right movement and self-styled internet super villain.
“A lot of people hate Milo because he’s a gay conservative,” Ezra enthused to the satirical press (Frank Prank, Aug. 5).
“I’ve never seen evidence that he is racist. He talks about blacks and he jokes about how much he likes black guys. He is an entertainer, like Ann Coulter. He’s crazier than she is.”
But after he compared Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones to Harambe the gorilla, Milo was hit with a lifetime Twitter ban—which ignited his career as a free speech firebrand and pushed his new public speaking rates beyond Ezra’s budget.
Exit Milo, replaced by none other than Lorne “Two-gun” Gunter, Postmedia flat earther and climate-stupid columnist, who will be in good company with Paige MacPherson of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (Alberta branch) and Adelle Nazarian, national security reporter for Breitbart News.
Passez le dramamine, svp!
