Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Trump Train Derailed: Canadian Supporters Respond

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: PEGIDA Canada Reaction To Orlando

It goes without saying that the mass murder that took place in Orlando last week horrified all decent people.

Not long ago we reported that Richard Warman had taken an interest in James Sears and “Your Ward News,” noting that when Mr. Warman takes an interest in a hate group and its members, said hate groups members usually come to regret Mr. Warman’s interest in them.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Three Canadian Racists Supporting Donald Trump: Sort of Funny

This past Saturday Republican primaries were held in Kentucky, Maine, Kansas, and Louisiana. Donald Trump managed to win both Kentucky and Louisiana by fairly comfortable margins. It was amusing then when we listened to the talking heads on MSNBC pontificate on whether or not the endorsement by David Duke would hurt Trump in Louisiana, a ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Muslim University Student Falsely Accused of School Stabbings; Islamophobes Continue to Run With the Claim

A little over a year ago we posted an article regarding a planned Valentine Day massacre in Halifax that the police managed to prevent before it started. The three individuals (one of whom killed himself as the police closed in) had social media presences that included allusions to the Columbine murderers and, of interest to ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: PEGIDA Canada: "We’re Not Racists"

When one is challenging groups such as PEGIDA Canada the accusation that the membership and supporters of similar groups hold racist views is countered by the statement that, "Islam is not a race." In our view, there's a lot of parsing of the terminology going on here, however when we refer to the views held ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Immediate Aftermath of PEGIDA Canada Rally

We've spent much of the day watching the fallout from the PEGIDA Canada rally that took place yesterday. One thing that seems clear is that the folks who organized the rally (1) were disappointed by their own turnout (2) were taken completely by surprise regarding the reaction of people opposed to their views, and (3) ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: PEGIDA Canada Rally Meets With Opposition: Banerjee Demands Opposition Be Shot

Well, it looks like the PEGIDA Canada rally and counter-protest was a rather boisterous affair. Back on September 13, we posted a message announcing a protest by anti-fascists to take place in Toronto opposing PEGIDA Canada who’s organizers announced their rally would take place on September 19. Perhaps ironically, ol’ walrus whiskers Sebastian Ronin also ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Bits and Bites: August 2015 Not Belated Edition

It's sometimes a tough call on whether or not we should discuss certain individuals on the blog. There are those like "the Goudreau" who seem to court any sort of attention, positive (rarely) or negative (much more frequent) as if the attention validates their importance. Usually the significance that individual places upon himself is in ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ron Banerjee, André Drouin, and Rise Canada

We had mentioned in our previous article that we were working on a new story. In fact, it's a story that sort of fell into our laps, though initially we didn't quite realize how significant it would turn out to be: Before being sent the above unsolicited link we had been aware of Rise Canada ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Montreal Pegida March Didn’t Go So Well.

When Pegida began to organize in Montreal, we began to keep an eye on what was happening. Unfortunately Quebec remains a bit of a problem area for us in that we have no active ARC members in the province and all the members we do have are hopelessly unilingual. We did notice though that Pegida ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: More Ford Fest Fallout: Ron Banerjee Focus Of Criminal Complaint

Late last month we posted an article on an apparent assault during Ford Fest.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ford Fest Fallout: Ron Banerjee Alleged to Have Assaulted Anti-Ford Protestor

Last time we mentioned Ron Banerjee in an article he was acting as the wingman to Islamaphobe Eric Brazau.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: April Legal Notes

This really isn’t in any way intended to be a comprehensive article. We just thought we would share some information on the legal front. First, the deadline for Marc Lemire to seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court (re: the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision) was on April 1. However, word is that he ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Extremists Baiting Extremists Who Further Bait Extremists

We didn't write about the folks with Canadian Hindu Advocacy (all two or three of them) or their plan to harass Muslim worshippers outside a Toronto mosque by parading dogs in front of it (because for some reason the myth that Muslims hate and/or are afraid of dogs has managed to really take hold in ...
