When we wrote about Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch's call for testing would-be immigrants to determine if the possessed "anti-Canadian values" that should disqualify those immigrants as potential citizens, we noted that this proposal had all the hallmarks of dog whistle politics; she could claim that her proposal didn't target any particular group while appealing . . . → Read More: Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Who Supports Kellie Leitch’s Canadian Values Test?

While we were working on our commentary
yesterday on Mack Lamoureux’s CBC story covering the activities of the Soldiers of Odin in Edmonton
, we were also following an interesting exchange between Mr. Lamoureux and Ezra Levant on Twitter. Sadly, as Ezra isn’t a fan of ours….
…. we may have been only able to see one side of the discussion.
Unless we had a second Twitter account. Which, of course, we do.
Now, from this part of the exchange, Ezra seems to be suggesting that the Soldiers of Odin are actually a figment of Mr. Lamoureux’s imagination. However, Ezra does clarify his position that he believes the SOO are exist, but only as a vehicle to entrap poor, dumb, disenfranchised, “old stock” Canadians:

We're working on a few projects that are currently occupying our collective attention, but we thought we would provide an update on our previous post. To recap, Levant's "Rebel Media" ran a book review of Connie Fournier's book excoriating the Harper Conservatives. However, the review was pulled after Richard Warman complained of defamatory material that . . . → Read More: Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Is Getting Good At Begging For Forgiveness: Part II
So Connie Fournier wrote a book about how much she, her husband, and many of the denizens of Free Dominion feel betrayed by Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party. While we haven’t bothered to read it, a friend did let us know we were mentioned in it, though not by name because we have cooties:

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.

This writer just got out of the bush a few days ago after several weeks of camping.

Update (21 June 2015) – Connie Fournier and Mark Fournier, the only remaining defendants in this action have rejected an offer to settle of $1 in damages plus $2,500 costs each that I would donate to charity (outlined below). I suggest people remember this next time they ask for $.

At least we think we're on to Part VII. Really, after a few years one does lose track.
In any case, a few years back a number of bloggers and others accused Richard Warman of posting incredibly racist comments about Caribbean-Canadian senator Anne Cools. It seems the accusation may have originated as a result of . . . → Read More: Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Don’t @#$% With Richard Warman: Part VII
I know a few people did. Hell, even Jeff Goodall sent his warm regards.

Well, talk about trying to have your cake and eat it too.
The past two articles posted too the blog have looked at the efforts of the owners of Free Dominion to crowd source their efforts in appealing the Warman judgement. More specifically, our focus was on one particular benefactor:

There are a few things in life that are predictable. Death. Taxes. And Tomasz Winnicki will respond to a blog post in which he is explicitly referred to.

Looks like London's biggest hater (his own words, by the way) has warm and fuzzy feelings for Free Dominion. Or more likely vitriolic and caustic feelings towards the people Free Dominion isn't fond of. With him it's more likely the former than the latter.

On March 18 we learned that Richard Warman and others started an Indiegogo campaign to help John Baglow pay legal bills resulting from his libel suit against Free Dominion and one of the posters there. As John has been a good friend of ARC over the years, we decided to promote the campaign as well . . . → Read More: Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Seven Days Left in Dr. Dawg Fundraiser
I am conflicted re Bill C51. Michael Geist is a pretty smart guy; the information sharing provisions do seem overly broad. But since the Snowden revelations never impressed me (its all meta-stuff about spies spying), I sometimes find myself wondering if at least some of the complaints over C51 are similarly over-egged.

We've been watching how some of folks our readers are familiar with are dealing with the failed Marc Lemire appeal. Take Lemire's former Heritage Front compatriot Louis Morin:

Back in March 2013 we noted that after attacking yet another fellow Free Dominion posted and precipitating yet another flame war, Edward Kennedy had been banned from Free Dominion. We had speculated that the ban may very well be temporary; our speculation was soon confirmed by Ms. Fournier:
