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

This writer is currently on vacation, however there have been a few stories that have come out lately that our readers may find of interest.

Back when we first wrote about Monika Schaefer, former Green Party federal candidate and current Holocaust denier, we anticipated that the like of Paulie, Arthur Topham, and now nutter Brian Ruhe would play the “persecuted German” angle. We haven’t been disappointed:

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Green Party of Canada Releases Statement on Monika Schaefer

UPDATE: Looks like the CBC picked up on the story as well.

Back in June we published an article about Monika Schaefer, a Green Party member and three time (at least) candidate in the riding of Yellowhead.

Or, perhaps it might be more accurate now to write that she is likely soon to be a former Green Party member:

The story has also been picked up by B’nai Brith Canada and by Ms. Schaefer’s local newspaper:

Video denying holocaust causes uproar
Posted by: fitzhugh Posted date: July 13, 2016 In: Archive, Feature, News

A video shot by a local resident denying the Holocaust has been widely condemned by the community and at least one resident has filed a formal complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

On June 17, Monika Schaefer, a well-known Jasper resident and former Green Party candidate, appeared in a video on Youtube denying the Holocaust. The video was subsequently posted on her Facebook page.
….
Ken Kuzminski, president of the Jasper Royal Canadian Legion, described the video as hate speech.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Former Green Party Candidate and 9/11 "Truther" Also Denies Holocaust

We would like to introduce our readers to Monika Schaefer, a three time (and perhaps four time) federal Green Party candidate in the Alberta riding of Yellowhead:

We first came across Monika Schaefer a few years back when Arthur Topham published an open letter penned by Schaefer to Green Party leader Elizabeth May regarding Schaefer’s belief that the 9/11 attacks were a “false flag” operation:

Now, anyone being promoted by the likes of Topham in regards to this particular conspiracy theory is likely going to have some other suspect views. Ms. Schaefer confirmed this when she referenced, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” as if it is a legitimate primary document rather than the plagiarized fraud it has been proven to be time and time again:

We’ll know more later we’re sure, but the word is that Arthur Topham was acquitted on the second of two charges however he was found guilty on the first charge.

The Crown may appeal the acquittal and it seems likely that Topham will appeal the conviction.

More details to follow.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Topham Hate Crime Trial: Week Two

It looks like the trail might be winding down and that final statements could be as early as Monday. Earlier in the week Paulie continued to offer his $0.02 regarding the legitimacy of the Crown's expert witness:

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Topham Trial: Paulie’s Summary

Not long after we summarized (as best we could) the Topham hate crimes trial, Paulie also posted his take. We won't include the entire missive; a few selected entries should suffice.

Though it appears to have been written on October 31, Paulie's piece wasn't uploaded until late Sunday. And it starts both with the general . . . → Read More: Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Topham Trial: Paulie’s Summary

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Topham Hate Crime Trial: Week One

This past week saw the long awaited Arthur Topham hate crime trial.

This will be a very short update.

Currently Paulie is in BC where he is attending the Arthur Topham hate crimes trial and suggesting the anti-Semitic ravings of a raving loon are somehow justifiable because of (both accidental and willful) poorly translated Jewish writings.

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Arthur Topham: Not Pretending Anymore

There was a time, not long ago, when Arthur Topham claimed that he wasn’t an anti-Semite. No, he was merely opposed to Zionism and Zionists. Besides, he couldn’t be an anti-Semite since he claimed his wife had Jewish ancestry (though we’re not sure that there was anything actually presented to substantiate that claim).

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Paulie Gloats About McKee’s Release, Then Throws Temper Tantrum Over Love’s Arrest

Something we've noted over the course of this blog's history is the increasing tendency of Paul Fromm (whom we lovingly refer to as Paulie) to move away from the, "genteel bigotry" he had been noted for advocating publicly in the past.

The wheels of justice turn slowly. But they do continue to turn in the case of Arthur Topham. BCL recently noted that the Crown is not going to allow Topham to turn the court into a circus by allowing him to use it as a venue to air his antisemitic conspiracy theories.
