A Growing List Of People Who Have Cut Ties With The Rebel - 2017-08-15
Over the weekend, The Rebel's Faith Goldy reported from the alt-right convergence in Charlottesville, Virginia — and her comments in her live-streams, and in a subsequent YouTube interview with Stefan Molyneux, were sufficiently sympathetic to white supremacists that they set off yet another crisis of identity for a site whose rightward drift toward ethnonationalism has arguably eclipsed that of Breitbart.
On Monday afternoon, founder Ezra Levant put out a statement attempting to distance The Rebel from the alt-right movement it had spent a year drawing upon for viewers and content. That was evidently not enough for co-founder (and most recently freelance contributor) Brian Lilley, who hours later announced that he had walked away from the company.
It's getting hard to keep track of the people who want nothing more to do with The Rebel, so we're starting a running list. We're only going to include those who appear to have cut ties voluntarily (sorry, Jack Posobiec) and had some sort of previous relationship (sorry, Doug Schweitzer).
