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:

It’s been a while since we heard anything about Michelle Erstikaitis. Last we heard she was still in detention from a previous run-in with the judicial system and Paul Fromm was diligently visiting her behind bars
(really, though he claims her as a White Nationalist P.O.W.
Paulie’s relationship with Erstikaitis remains inexplicable to us…. unless…. yuck!).
We’ll, it looks like she is out of prison.
Or, perhaps we should say, WAS out of prison:
Paulie might have a hard time explaining this away.
Michelle Erstikaitis, 36, who was deemed a dangerous offender five years ago, appeared in a College Park courtroom Tuesday looking dishevelled and ranting about wanting “a refugee lawyer” to handle her case.
She is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.
“I’m a Canadian citizen and I want to leave this country,” Erstikaitis said in open court.
Okay, so, what did she do exactly?
Toronto Sun sources alleged the woman initially asked for asylum but soon began shouting “ISIS is coming to kill you” and other odd things.
Officers arrived and found a guard suffering from multiple stab wounds.
“It’s alleged the woman tried to force her way into the consulate while armed with a three-inch box cutter,” said Sidhu, who added she rushed through the body scanner at the front entrance prompting a guard to react.
As the guard grabbed the woman, she allegedly slashed his throat with the razor-sharp box-cutter narrowly missing a major artery, sources say.
“He managed to avoid serious injury,” Sidhu said, adding the guard’s arm was also sliced before the woman was subdued.
Yeah, that would do it.
The article goes on to detail Erstikaitis’ long and sordid history of legal problems, arrests, and her dangerous offender designation which Paulie suggested was COMPLETELY unjustifiable.
Paulie might be pleased though (or saddened) to learn that her association with him and White Nationalists was not included in her biography
Last we actually saw Erstikaitis was at the Doug Christie Memorial in Toronto where she was photographed between Malcolm Ross and Marc Lemire….

At least we think we're on to Part VII. Really, after a few years one does lose track.

We posted an article on the blog earlier this month where we suggested that government legislation that would provide CSIS more powers wasn't in the best interests of the Canadian people.

We've written posts about Ezra Levant sporadically throughout the history of this blog, most recently concerning his racist stereotyping of the Roma people for which he eventually apologized (though only because Sun News was trying to get mandatory carriage at the time).
