Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: The (Partial) Rise and Fall of Milo Yiannopoulos: With Canadian Content

Upon learning the news today regarding the Milo Yiannopoulos that came to light, we threw this together quickly, mostly because this writer is having fun honing the ol’ video editing skills. I think I’m getting better. In any case, another shout out to Canadian Cynic who collected many of the screen shots found in the video.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Rise Canada and Other Islamophobes Celebrate Their Islamophobia At Toronto Mosque

On February 17, Ron Banerjee, Eric Brazeau, Sandra Solomon, and other Islamophobes protested in front of a mosque in Toronto. As of Saturday the Toronto Police Service claimed to be investigating the protest as a possible hate crime. And since Banerjee was kind enough to provide video of the event, this writer decided to provide ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Associate of Soldiers of Odin in Saskatchewan Found Guilty of Uttering Threats Directed at Prime Minister

To be fair, the Saskatchewan Chapter of the SoO is now seemingly defunct, but that is neither here nor there. Near the beginning of August we reported that Christopher Hayes of Grayson, Saskatchewan had been arrested for uttering threats directed towards Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Christopher was at the time a member of at least ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: December 2016 Bits and Bites

We begin with a very brief update on Paulie who is so tickled pink (well, more pink than he usually is) about Trump's election that he isn't bothering to try to conceal his views in more "respectable" terms anymore: We're sure that Paulie will be leading the charge…. so long as others foot the bill ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: A Busy Weekend for Extremism in Calgary: Blood & Honour and "The Rebel"

This past weekend there were two Calgary events that caught our attention. In some ways they were a study in contrasts. One event was held on Saturday by a small, shadowy, group that has since 2012 shunned media attention. The other was held on Sunday by a relatively politically savvy group that, while claiming to ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Levant and Canadian-Style Trumpism

In Edmonton this past weekend, Ezra Levant and his merry little basket of deplorables posing as journalists held a rally at the legislature opposing the carbon tax passed by the NDP government that is set to come into effect in January 2017. Aside from the fact that Levant claims The Rebel is a journalistic endeavor ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Andrew Benson Reappears With Interesting Friends

It seems that in addition to the Goudreau, who recently came to our attention after a lengthy absence, another character whom we had once been keeping close tabs on but whom we lost track of has reappeared on our radar: Andrew Benson has been somewhat of a political chameleon over the years. He started out as ...

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

You would have to be living under a rock to not be aware of what has become known as the "Trump Tape" in which Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks about sexually assaulting women on a hot mic: In part as a result of the tape and, perhaps, his crude dismissal of it as mere ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Kellie Leitch’s Canadian Values And Dog Whistle Politics

On this day 15 years ago, a monstrous act of terrorism was carried out by 19 members of Al-Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden and motivated a bastardized interpretation of Islam not shared by the vast majority of the Muslim world. The result was the death of 2,977 innocent human beings and a world forever changed…. at ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Levant Not Entirely Certain Soldiers of Odin Are A "Thing"

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 ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Halifax Chronicle Herald: The Damage is Done

While this writer was away, a story broke in Halifax that was modified a number of times before it was ultimately pulled. I'm of course referring to the story alleging Syrian refugees at a Halifax elementary school not only bullying female students, but assaulting them with chains while shouting, "Muslims rule the world." "The Chronicle ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Goat-Blood Drinking Senate Candidate Barred Entry Into Canada

Last Saturday we wrote about Augustus Invictus, a Libertarian candidate for the senate seat being vacated by Marco Rubio who was scheduled to speak in Vancouver yesterday. Owing to his support of eugenics, racism, and desire to precipitate a second Civil War, the location where he had been scheduled to speak decided that they really ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: The Goat-Blood Drinking Senate Candidate and the PEGIDA UK Leader Who Was Too Much Even For UKIP

Sometimes we learn about some particularly odd characters when receiving information from our readers: Meet Augustus Sol Invictus, a Libertarian candidate for the senate seat being vacated by Marco Rubio. Aside from changing his name to a Latin phrase which is loosely translated as "Majestic Invincible Sun" and, thus, indicating that he has an ego ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Members of Canadian Anti-Muslim Groups Seem Immune to Irony

Incoherent, irrational, misdirected, anger. Back in November we wrote an article comparing the rhetoric found in contemporary anti-Muslim Facebook groups (focusing specifically on PEGIDA Canada) with that of the Nazi propaganda: Not long after the German occupation of Poland, Nazi propagandists produced the film, "The Eternal Jew." The film, presented as a documentary, was an ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: The Aftermath of a Tragedy

One would have to be living under a rock to not have heard about the horrific attacks in Paris that occurred on November 13. A total (as of this date) of 130 dead and 368 injured in what must be described as an act of cowardice by people subscribing to a twisted and evil ideology. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Is Getting Good At Begging For Forgiveness: Part II

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 ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Is Getting Good At Begging For Forgiveness

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: ...

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: Don’t @#$% With Richard Warman: Part VII

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 ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Fromm Picks Up Levant’s Islamaphobic Batton and Runs With It

On November 11, Ezra wrote an article accusing the Essex Board of Education in Ontario of exempting Muslims from participating in Remembrance Day and questioned the patriotism of Muslim Canadians. He suggested people who he outraged sign a petition that condemned the board's decision on a website his article linked to (Canada: Love It Or ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Levant, Hyde, and Appealing to the Id

Our erudite readers will all be well acquainted with this particular novel: This writer is a fan of both Robert Louis Stevenson' and Sigmund Freud's work (though I actually prefer Jung and think his theories more relevant) so forgive me for the clumsiness when I discuss The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde through ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Sec. 13 Dead…. For Now

NOTE: This is a little screen shot heavy. Be forewarned. On June 26, Sec. 13 of the Human Rights Act cease to exist. As our friend BCL noted however there is no reason why Sec. 13, which was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court, can not be brought back by a more enlightened government in ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Levant and the Fine Art of Astroturfing….

…. allegedly. 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). He has championed bigots such as Geert Wilders and Anne Coulter. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ezra Levant Apology: Cynical Ploy Confirmed By Sun News VP

Regarding Levant’s apology for his racist screed against the Roma, we suggested his apology was, just perhaps, a cynical effort to bolster Sun News’ efforts to get mandatory carriage.  In an interview on CBC Radio, VP of Kory Teneycke said, in part, the following: Off also questioned why Levant last week reissued his apology over ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Levant: Say Whaaaattttt?????

A short intermission in our Christie series. On September 5, 2012, Sun News’ Ezra Levant painted the entire Roma people as parasitic criminals on “The Source.” Not surprisingly, the Roma community in Canada and internationally, a people who know what can result from such dehumanization based on past experience, took issue with Levant’s characterization of ...
