Odds and Ends: Special Holiday Update

Well we've had about all the turkey and Christmas cheer we can stand. How about a few updates?

First, we mentioned in an earlier, though now archived, article how the Aryan Guard may have stolen their Activist Values from Volksfront International's Ideals and Values page which considering the hostility between the two groups is more than a bit ironic(see here and here). Well Bill Noble, who we have to mention once again has not yet been returned to prison for flagrant violations of the terms of his release, has an explanation:

Noble is walking a pretty thin line here. On the one hand while the Aryan Guard (or what is left of it) is engaged in a war of words with Volksfront, Noble himself is friendly with a number of people in or associated with Volksfront in one way or another (Todd Conroy, Ciaran Donnelly, Glenn Bahr). Trying to keep the peace between two angry pitbulls that hate each other. In fact, we wonder what the Aryan Guard members think of Noble's frendliness with members and/or associates of Volksfront, the "A" brothers notwithstanding (though one source close to both D.A. and E.A. say that neither are members or are linked to Volksfront). Add to this he had to make this post on the Combat18 message boards, a group violently opposed to Volksfront, and justify plagiarism. Finally, he casually throws RN, who was the first webmaster of the Aryan Guard website before his own legal issues under the bus. How quick these people are to pass the blame on to someone else.

Something To Consider

One of the constant themes that Paul Fromm perpetuates is that the CHRT, Richard Warman and others target only those who are poor. Melissa Guille is a poor, working single mother. Marc Lemire is a poor family man. Jessica Beaumont is a poor young woman working in retail. Our personal favourite is Fromm's complaint about Tomasz Winnicki who is not only poor, but an immigrant who's command of the English language might not be proficient enough to understand that the rhetoric he uses might be offensive (given that Mr. Winnicki has been in Canada since the late 80s, we find this justification by Mr. Fromm for Winnicki's vile and hateful posts on VNN to be especially laughable and, considering Mr. Fromm's complaints about non-European immigrants who's command of English is not yet mastered, especially hypocritical). In Paul Fromm's mind, it is patently unfair for human rights activists or the CHRT to target such vulnerable and defenceless individuals.

Which sort of creates a problem for those, like Mr. Fromm, who use this particular argument.


Served Its Purpose

We've archived our December 22 article because we received the information we were hoping to elicit with it. Its purpose served, it will be kept under wraps. For the time being.

More Concerns About the WBTA

The WBTA continues to roll out their list of members on their executive council. And there continue to be concerns about members of the executive when it comes to their views on minority rights as mentioned here and here.

The following comes from an August 8, 2007 posting on the blog of John Nesdoly, leader of the Western Independence Party of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Chair on the WBTA executive council:


The Magic is Over

Or at least it appears so for the time being.

Alicia Reckzin (the former ARA member known for her run-in with George Burdi which led to his assault conviction) and Kevin Goudreau, the neo-Nazi with the IQ of a fruit fly, have appeared to have broken up.

Yet another wonderful holiday surprise. Karma is a bitch, ain't it Alicia?

Message From the Western Businesses & Taxpayers Association Regarding Ernie Slump

Yesterday we updated our article relating to a WBTA member's relationship regarding Doug Christie. In that update we included our additional concerns about Ernie Slump, also a leader in the group. Today we received the following message:


Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Doug Christie and Western Independence

So it would look like our favorite go-to lawyer for Canadian neo-Nazis, real Nazis and Holocaust deniers is trying to take advantage of the current 'consitutional crisis' even though things have calmed down and it appears less likely that the government will fall when it reconvenes in January. Douglas Christie writes:

Fromm and the collection plate

The following is Fromm's response to losing his appeal:


Free Speech Setback: Appeals Court Upholds Warman Libel Decision Against Fromm & CAFE

TORONTO. Tuesday, December 9 was a grim day for free speech and dissent in Canada, especially when it comes to criticizing those actively involved in trying to limit political discussion by dissidents. A three man panel of the Ontario Court of Appeal upheld the 2007 decision by Madam Justice Monique Metivier finding Paul Fromm and the Canadian Association for Free Expression guilty of defamation for 9 Internet postings in 2003 calling then Canadian Human Rights Commission employee Richard Warman a "censor."

Friday, December 12, 2008

Don't @#$% With Richard Warman: Part II

As we mentioned earlier this week, Fromm's appeal of a November 2007 ruling that he had libeled Richard Warman was thrown out of court with an additional costs of $10,000 on top of the $30,000 in court costs. The reasoning for the decision appears to be as follows:

- The material in question was clearly capable of being defamatory
- The trial judge found that they were in fact defamatory
- There is no basis for us [the appeals court] to interfere with trial judge's findings
- In the material it is impossible to distinguish between fact vs. opinion (one of the pre-conditions for the defence in libel cases of 'fair comment' that they were trying to advance)
- Justice Metivier's finding of malice on the part of Fromm/CAFE was soundly based in the evidence and there is no basis to interfere with it
- Thus the appeal must fail

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Trouble in Paradise: Part Two

So Paul Fromm decided to appeal the decision that found that he had libeled Richard Warman and which awarded Mr. Warman $30,000.

Not only did the Ontario Court of Appeal reject Fromm's appeal, and not only did they dismiss the appeal without having to hear from Warman's lawyer, but the court tacked on $10,000 in costs against him in addition to the $30,000 in damages from the trial level.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Trouble in Paradise: Part One

Though completely unconfirmed at this point, it would appear that the magic is over. The lights have gone out and the ships have passed in the night.

Kyle McKee, founder of the Aryan Guard, is reported to now be single.

Now if those two crazy kids couldn't make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us?

And to forestall any criticism, yes this "article" is childish, immature and beneath our dignity. And we don't care.

The Campaign So Far

Based on some responses that we've received from people in the know, we believe that our efforts to have Bill Noble held accountable for violating the terms of his release are meeting with success. However, we encourage our readers to keep up the campaign.

Constable Lynn MacDonald # 3118
Hate Crimes/Diversity Education Officer
Diversity Resources Unit
Calgary Police Service
403-206-8155

We would also like to address one comment made recently concerning this campaign. No, this is not a vendetta. This is making certain that all of us, every single person, is treated equally before the law and to make certain that no one is above the law or could act in contempt of the law.

Happy Birthday to Us!

It has been exactly one year since we started this blog on Blooger, after having originally started up on LiveJournal. Between November 30, 2007 and November 30, 2008, we've had almost 30,000 visitors to our website.

We thank everyone who has contributed to the relative success of this website.

Now, if you're in the mood to give us a birthday gift on our birthday, we would like to make a request:

Bill Noble should be back in jail for his contemptuous violation of the terms of his parole. As regular readers of this website are well aware of, Noble was convicted of violating Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code and was sentenced to 4 months in prison. He was released two months later with strict conditions that he not access the Internet for a period of no less than 3 years. Almost immediately upon his release, Noble violated the terms of his parole by participating on Facebook, Stormfront, and running the hate website and forum for the Aryan Guard.

Tip to Nazis: Don't @#$% With Richard Warman

Some time ago, an American neo-Nazi named William (Bill) White called for the murder of Richard Warman owing to Mr. Warman's active campaign against racism in Canada. White published Warman's home address and place of work. He suggested methods by which an individual could kill Mr. Warman in the most graphic manner possible.

Warman filed a complaint about White's website, Overthrow.com, with the CRTC. Unfortunately, the CRTC claimed they couldn't do anything because White and his website were both based in the United States and beyond the reach of their mandate (evidently blocking a website advocating the murder of a Canadian citizen didn't occur to them).

White thought he was untouchable and acted accordingly. However, chickens came home to roost in October 2008 when White was arrested on federal charges by the FBI. According to news reports and court papers, White's arrest was based primarily on recent online threats against a member of the jury that convicted the Creativity Movement's leader Matt Hale off incitement to murder. Additional information in court papers indicate that White's arrest was also based on an article suggesting the assassination of president-elect Barak Obama, as well as threats made towards a certain Canadian lawyer in Ontario (see pages 10 and 11 of 24).

National Post Apologizes to Richard Warman. Again.

Well, here we go again. The National Post recently republished the false 'Anne Cools' allegation by virtue of publishing an article by Ezra Levant that contained hot links to it and affirmation of its contents. Below is the result from their receiving a libel notice from Warman's lawyer:

On November 10th, the National Post posted on its Full Comment Web blog a column entitled “Ezra Levant: Canada’s free speech enemies to lay Remembrance Day wreath,” which included a link to another Web site that suggested lawyer and human rights activist Richard Warman had posted an offensive item on the Freedomsite website about Senator Anne Cools. The National Post has no evidence to support this allegation against Mr. Warman and it hereby retracts any suggestion that Mr. Warman manufactured any statement about Senator Cools. The National Post apologizes for any embarrassment this has caused Mr. Warman.

We also enjoyed reading the posted message below the retraction:

Why would you even (re)print his stuff? He's become a "libel liability".
If you reproduce any of his articles, make sure to go through them with a fine-toothed comb and edit it down to the bare bones.

Indeed. One would think that, given their current troubles in this matter, that the "journalists" with the National Post would be more careful.

OdinPatrick Get's a Cookie

Richard Moon issued his report on the Canadian Human Rights Commission and he advocated that section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act should be repealed. We're not going to go into the entire report deeply, but if you're interested in a good analysis go to BigCityLib's blog.

One would think that the racist right would be celebrating this. One would be wrong. In fact, some have come to realize that based on Moon's recommendations, things could actually get even worse for them. OdinPatrick, the Canadian Stormfront moderator, states:

As we know that the racist right is fond of all things German (at least German of a certain era in history involving goosestepping and bad moustaches), we'd like to introduce them to a word that often defines our member's attitudes towards the trials and tribulations of the racist right.

Schadenfreude.

November Odds and Ends

Those of us who participate in gathering information and writing articles for Anti-Racism Canada have been very busy this month, though our business is more a matter of our rather full and hectic lives than anything the far right are up to. November has been filled with hockey practices and piano lessons for our children, vacations to Spain, and getting marks ready for midterm report cards.

It helps that the activities of the far right have been pretty low key too.

So, we thought we'd write a short blurb about what has been happening over the last couple of weeks.

Terry Tremaine was in the news again today as the federal court upheld the ruling against the former University of Saskatchewan lecturer in which Tremaine was found guilty of human rights violations. Tremaine is also soon to be on trial for criminal charges related to his online postings, primarily on Stormfront and his own website. This news was greeted with the usual reaction of the far right as Canadian Stormfront moderator "OdinPatrick" speculated on the faith of the presiding judge:

Is Judith Snider Jewish? She appears to be a "champion" donor for the Canadian JFSA (Jewish Family Service Agency)

Cue the conspiracy accusations. If our readers would like to know more about the trials and troubles of Terry Tremaine, they can go to a well researched article found on the website of our friends with the One Peoples' Project.

Folks on Stormfront Giddy With Excitement; Conservative Party Might Want to Take Notice of Who Their Supporters Are

A little over a week ago, the Conservative Party of Canada held a policy convention in Winnipeg. The convention marked a significant shift to the right and will no doubt be fodder for those who believe that Harper and the Conservatives have a secret agenda.

From our stand point, one of the most interesting motions was to remove power from the Canadian Human Rights Commission and Tribunal. Recently some prominent conservatives have found themselves in the cross hairs of the Tribunal for comments made about Muslims and Islam. We find it interesting it was only some of their own were targeted that conservatives started calling for more freedom of speech.

One of the biggest cheerleaders of this motion, which ultimately passed almost with unanimity, was Paul Fromm who called on his supporters to write Conservative MPs to push for defanging the Commission and Tribunal. Fromm is no stranger to the Tribunal, as he has advocated for a number of individuals who had been brought before the Tribunal based on complaints by Richard Warman. We will charitably state that Fromm's efforts before the Tribunal have met with limited success.

When news that the motion was adopted reached Stormfront, the faithful were ready to celebrate their great victory over the powers of ZOG. Here are some select comments:

Any Vandalism Involving Broken Windows in Calgary Recently?

Perhaps not, but as the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht occurred between November 9 and 10, one can't help wonder if our favourite Calgary neo-Nazis might have decided to commemorate the event in the special way that only boneheads could. The following Facebook status of Bill Noble doesn't help assuage our suspicions:

Aryan Guard and Valkyrian Legion Forums Down

Temporalles (Amy Fraser) complains about their forums being shut down:


Gee, we wonder how that happened?

To whom it may concern:

I'm writing to you with concerns over the use of your discussion forum services by the Canadian neo-Nazi group called "the Aryan Guard".

Their page is located at: http://www.aryanguard.smfnew.com/

I believe that the Aryan Guard is in violation of the following sections of your Terms of Service 1) Indecent Images & Links (due to their use of swastikas and other hate symbols); 3) Topics & Material (due to their clearly white supremacist and neo-Nazi oriented discussions); and 4) Legal Use (although I am not aware of a breach of U.K. or U.S. laws, there are clear violations of Canadian human rights legislation, including s. 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, and potentially of s. 319 of the Criminal Code of Canada).

I trust that you will take swift and proper action to prevent this hate group from further using your services. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank you.

Odds and Ends

First, the comedy. VNN is one of the preeminent "White Nationalist" websites on the Net. Their web forum is frequented by people who make the posters on Stormfront appear lucid and rational by comparison. The VNN posters take a great deal of pride in their vulgarity and their overt calls for violence against minorities and those individuals who oppose them. Among the prominent posters on VNN are Canada's own Tom Winnicki, William White (recently arrested for suggesting the murder of a juror in the Matt Hale case among other things) and site owner Alex Linder.

They're also complete idiots.

Take a look at the following screen shot and try to guess where there's a bit of a problem. Here's a hint: they might have done poorly in geography.

Yet another Aryan Guard member in trouble


While we had suspected it to be the case some time ago, it has essentially been confirmed that founding member of the Aryan Guard "RN" has been sent away to jail. We know that he was found guilty of criminal activities some time ago and he was often visited by the police during the summer to check to see if he was violating curfew. We would guess that he entered jail some time around the beginning of September.


Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Not that we want to poke a hornet's nest.

But we thought we'd post some of the recent war of words that have taken place on this blog between the Aryan Guard and Volksfront.

In no particular order:

There will be no beatings in British Columbia, should the Aryan Guard choose to "expand". British Columbia is a soft foothold for the renegade Blood and Honor and Volksfront, led by none-other than a person we will call "Kevin", who had fled Eastern Canada due to his connections with CSIS, and his father, a JOG police agent.

Aryan Guard vs. Volksfront Canada?

Before getting to the main event, we continue our long running saga detailing the dispute between Tom Trenerry and John Marleau. In this exciting episode, we learn about the origin of the rather heated disagreement between these erstwhile allies:

We think that Tom actually hurt John's feelings here. John seems upset that Tom has continues to make fun of him because of John's weight problem. True, that's a low blow. What we could rather Tom comment on is John's apparent inability to bond with a woman who isn't under the age of 16. That, our dear readers, is truly sad.

At this point, we have to admit that the Trenerry and Marleau spat has grown predictable, tiresome, and boring. Until something more exciting occurs, we're not going to tune in to their minstral show any longer. Changing the chanel.

What has interested us is the rising tension between the Aryan Guard on one side, and the "A" brothers and Volksfront on the other. We have earlier discussed the online fight resulting from comments made by D.A. on the Stormfront, Blood and Honour, and Aryan Guard Forums (here and here). Soon after posting the second to the two articles, we received the following message, presumably from someone close to the Aryan Guard, if not a member himself:

Aryan Guard Youth Held Without Bail

We reported on this earlier, but we thought our readers would like an update. A recent article in the "Calgary Sun" discusses the incident involving an attack on a Japanese tourist by at least one member of the Aryan Guard. That this woman was assaulted was bad enough, but the manner in which it occurred is chilling. It appears that the alleged attacker specifically targeted to woman to earn his red laces.

The Aryan Guard Fallout Regarding Our Articles.

First we'd like to forward our readers to an article on the blog "Firebrand" which discusses how the right-wing mainstream media in Canada have abandoned any pretense of journalistic integrity in their effort to re-brand Paul Fromm as a "civil liberty advocate."

Thank you to the person who forwarded to us this link.

It has been a week since we published the last of our three part series on the impending collapse of the Aryan Guard. We wondered what the effects of the articles had been thus far. Thomas Trenerry was the first to comment on the story, leaving the following message on the YouTube profile of one of our more active members:

We are gonna find you. 

And give you a reward for being the world's dumbest person. Grow up kid. You live off of basic Marxist propaganda. You post things about "Neo Nazi's" attempting to be someone. But really you spend most of your time on a computer probably in your mothers basement. And spewing nonsense to onepeoplesproject. Actually kind of sad. You need to get a life.

The Decline of the Aryan Guard: Part 3

The previous article on the Aryan Guard focused on the infighting between members and those who have abandoned the racist gang. The final article of this three part series will feature the criminal behaviour of the Aryan Guard.

Jan Korinth
Thomas Trenerry
Dallas Price
Kyle McKee
As we have reported in the past on this blog, members of the Aryan Guard are no strangers to the criminal justice system. Thomas Trenerry has spent time in prison on criminal charges and had his sentenced increased as a result of a prison escape. Kyle McKee and Dallas Price have criminal convictions and were both implicated in an assault using weapons in 2006. Later that year, Robert Reitmeier was charged with attempted murder in the case of a beating which left a man in his 40s unconscious (we don’t know if the man survived the attack or if he remains in a coma, though charges against Reitmeier appear to have been stayed). R.N was convicted of various crimes early this past year and appears to either be on probation. One of the founders of the Aryan Guard, a person who’s name is Jan Korinth and who posts online as “boywhite” was arrested and placed in the Calgary Remand Centre not long after he moved from BC to Calgary. After some efforts to try and make bail for his release, the Aryan Guard has failed to mention Jan’s name since and his current fate and whereabouts is currently unknown.

The Decline of the Aryan Guard: Part 2


We continue with part two of our part three series on the continuing collapse of the Aryan Guard.

The troubles of the Aryan Guard in recent days have been evident, but even we didn’t realize just how bad things were getting for them until the third week of September. We’ve discussed some of the infighting and rifts between people previously associated with the Aryan Guard such as Melissa Brow and "rippler2k3", but in recent days we’ve been hearing rumours of youths getting tired of the Aryan Guard and leaving as well as some of the worst infighting among Aryan Guard members (or former members depending upon whom one listens to) that we’ve seen yet. We’ll begin first with those who are rumoured to have left the Aryan Guard.

The first individual associated with the Aryan Guard whom we had heard had left the organization is a bonehead going by the initials B.L. We’ve noted that B.L.’s mother is someone who appears to be a progressive and, as such, likely never approved of his involvement with an overt racist gang. Seems we were right, as B.L.’s involvement with the Aryan Guard resulted in a rift between himself and his family to the point that they wouldn’t have anything to do with him so long as he continued to be involved with the Aryan Guard. Estrangement from his family appears to have given B.L. cause to reconsider his involvement with organized racism and he has, if the rumours are true, decided to leave the group in order to try and reconcile with his family.

The second individual rumoured to have left the Aryan Guard is M.J., an Aryan Guard groupie / oi toy. M.J. had been involved with the Aryan Guard for at least a year and was a member of its women’s auxiliary the Valkyrian Legion. She was also involved with Aryan Guard member Tyler Sturrup, a relationship that called into question both her judgment and good taste. Well, word on the street from a reliable source was that Miss. M.J. soon became bored with her involvement with the Aryan Guard and decided that she would rather get drunk and suck on a pacifier at raves than get drunk and suck on… well, Aryan Guard members. This rumor appeared to be confirmed when, “AryanBroad” posted the following comments on Anti-Racist Canada:
Just for the website's knowledge,
I wanted to inform everyone
[M.J.], is not dating Tyler Sturrup and the stupid Bitch hasnt been around for the last 2 months or so. Along with Tyler is back in jail
and,

[M.J.] broke up with Tyler at the end of August, Im not to sure when. The reasons from what I understand is because he is an idiot and went to Jail a second time. The other time about him going to jail was about "robbery" and breaches. This time the same thing for the Breaches. Where [M.J.] is? From what the Aryan Guard and WEB understands is she is back to her old group and Raving. If she were to come back we would be suprised.

The Decline of the Aryan Guard: Part 1

This article, the first in a three part series, will act as a summary of what most already know about the recent troubles of the Aryan Guard. We will be publishing additional articles during the next few days. Consider this first article to be a refresher on the more recent Aryan Guard antics and an appetizer for the main course to come.

On March 21, 2008, between 25 and 40 members of the Aryan Guard, Western European Brotherhood (W.E.B.), Klan members, unaffiliated neo-Nazis, and National-Socialist Party of Canada leader Terry Tremaine marched in the name of “White Pride” (a euphemism for White Supremacy, intimidation, and ethnic hatred) on the day designated by the United Nations as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The spit in the face of Calgary civil society, organized by the Aryan Guard was opposed by 100s of anti-racist activists in Calgary. Though vastly outnumbered, that the Aryan Guard and their allies were able to march in the first place and to gather such a relatively large number of like-minded individuals indicated that they were a growing threat in the community.

As it turned out, and in spite of later gimmicks such as advertising they would pay the damage deposit for any “White Nationalist” who moved to Calgary to join them and the hosting a “Free Speech Conference” which saw Paul Fromm, Terry Tremaine, and Bill Noble as the keynote speakers, the March 21 rally appears to have also been the peak of the Aryan Guard. Since that date it has been evident that things have started to go down hill for the Aryan Guard, but even we were surprised to learn just how much trouble the racist gang of thugs were actually in.

Imminent Collapse of the Aryan Guard Expected Sooner Than Originally Anticipated

We're in the process of validating some information that we have received from a variety of sources in the last couple of days, however we will provide our readers with a little tease.

Whether or not the gang continues to exist as a name, the Aryan Guard appears to be in significant trouble and is hemorrhaging members and supporters. We suggested the Aryan Guard might be spent as a player on the racist right within a years time. We just might have to move that time line up a bit.

Expect a full report in the next couple of days. In the meantime, any racist planning on moving to Calgary and hooking up with a vibrant, "white nationalist" organization might want to consider unpacking their bags.

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Update: Tyler Sturrup, as well as some odds and ends

We received a comment on our article dealing with infighting within the Aryan Guard, particularly between M.J., Kendra, and John (Richard) Marleau:

AryanBroad said...
Just for the website's knowledge,
I wanted to inform everyone [M.J.], is not dating Tyler Sturrup and the stupid Bitch hasnt been around for the last 2 months or so. Along with Tyler is back in jail

Perhaps "AryanBroad" might consider expanding on this comment? When did M.J. stop dating Sturrup and why? For what reason is Sturrup in jail? Why was he in jail some months back as well?

At least part of this story was confirmed by Marleau himself as well as another individual who will remain unnamed because of the individual's age:

Willis Is Not A Nazi: Part 2

It would seem that the Aryan Guard is still trying to convince you, our dear readers, that Willis is not a Nazi. As posted on Stormfront by Temperalles on September 3, 2008:

Now there's a bunch of tards on some site called 'march21.tk' trying to say Willis is a Nazi because he's in a photo throwing a straight-arm salute. Well I guess all the ancient Romans were Nazis as well.

It occurs to me there's just enough people out there naive enough to buy the fallacious deduction put forward by the Reds, so I thought I'd point out that National Socialists are not the only people to use the straight-arm salute. Because it is a gesture which goes back much further in history than the NSDAP of less than a century ago, non-National-Socialists also use it, often as a symbol of White Pride, other times merely as a salute. Just like the Triskelion on the flag behind him, it's a symbol with broad heritage overtones, and by no means of specific enough symbology to boil anyone down to any particular ideology.

My God, if the Roman salute were a Nazi symbol, you'd never see a Third Positionist using it... and they do all the time.

Marc Lemire: Retreat on Key Accusations

In the spirit of collaboration and not reinventing the wheel, we'd like to send our readers to BigCityLib Strikes Back to read the following article:

Lemire Retreats! Speechies Get Stiffed!

To sum up, Lemire has very quietly admitted that Mr. Dean Steacy and other CHRC members did not post racist materials on his website's message board. Further, he is no longer claiming that the CHRC hijacked the wireless Internet service of an Ontario woman as previously claimed.

We wonder if Mr. Levant, the "National Post," Mr. Steyn, etal will publicly apologize to Mr. Steacy for their libelous claims?

Paul Fromm Attempts to Breach Security at Courthouse


Jason Ouwendyk (left) with fellow Northern Alliance member Tomas Szymanski

We plan on keeping up with the Aryan Guard arrests in Gleichen, AB as we receive more information (fyi, the Aryan Guard are claiming they were the victims of police brutality and were framed, but we don't think most people will be fooled at all). In the meantime we would like to publish the story that we had planned on publishing on August 28.

As many of our readers who follow the antics of the far right in Canada already know, Paul Fromm has been acting as an agent for former (?) Northern Alliance spokesman Jason Ouwendyk, as well as the the agent for the Northern Alliance itself. Paul Fromm is NOT a lawyer which he has said as much himself as a reason for his poor showing before CHRT hearings (thus far he hasn't successfully defended any of those he has represented and may very well have hurt their cases as a result of his incompetence).

The following was sent to us by one source who was in attendance and was verified by a second source:

Racist attack on the Siksika First Nation Reserve near Calgary


We were going to post an article detailing Paul Fromm's attempted breach of security during the Jason Ouwendyk / Northern Alliance CHRT hearings, but we want to alert our readers to a local news story currently breaking.


Thanks to "gandalf" for giving us a heads up.


Racism erupts at the Siksika First Nation Reserve


The police say that four members of the Aryan Guard are currently suspects. Are we surprised?

Nazi-Free Calgary Demonstration!

Time and Place

Date: Sunday, September 7, 2008
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Sidewalk in front of Plaza Theatre
Street: 1133 Kensington Road NW
City: Calgary, AB

The last several months have seen the neo-Nazi gangs the Aryan Guard and W.E.B becoming bolder and more aggressive in our city. The much publicized ploy by the Guard to boost their ranks of stormtrooper wannabes by offering to pay applicants' rent has been followed by a rash assaults on women of colour by white men dressed as "skinheads".

It is time for the people of Calgary to stand up and say "No" to violent racist gangs. It's time for us to take our streets and city back.

It's time for a Nazi-Free Calgary Demonstration!

This event will be a peaceful demonstration focusing on education and awareness.

Bill Noble Update


We knew it was only a matter of time before Noble decided to violate the terms of his parole. In truth, he violated them months ago as he has been active on White Pride/Power Facebook groups since soon after his release from prison. Of course that wasn't enough for Noble so the seductive siren song of Stormfront was finally too compelling to ignore. What follows is his first Stormfront post since February:

Marc Lemire Edits His Own Wikipedia Article.

Oh, Marc.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens once noted that, there are no grades of vanity, there are only grades of ability in concealing it." And Mark, you're ability to conceal your vanity is abysmal.

Over the last number of years, Mark Lemire has been editing his own Wikipedia entry using the user-name, "Veritas-Canada." It has always been transparent that Lemire and V-C were one in the same. As Veritas-Canada, Lemire attempted to expunge any links to newspaper articles, B'nai Brith and
Canadian Jewish Congress reports, and any other sources connecting Lemire to groups and individuals associated with the far right, as well as the fact he was the last leader of the Heritage Front. As a result there has been an ongoing edit war on the Marc Lemire article since late 2006.

Well, it looks like Veritas-Canada wasn't getting the job done so Lemire called in some reinforcements.

Oh, did we say "call"? What we meant to say was that Lemire CREATED reinforcements in the form of sockpuppets.

Why One Should NOT Take Unscientific Polls Seriously

In a recent poll in what we'll term charitably as a socially conservative online "news" site, it appeared that Canadians overwhelmingly supported the return of capital punishment. In another similar Internet based publication, the poll numbers supported ending immigration to Canada from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. These unscientific polls were posted in light of the horrific tragedy in Manitoba when Vince Weiguang Li murdered Tim McLean.

Given the readership of these particular sites, it's no wonder that the numbers supported the very positions that the online publication supported. Imagine a poll on Free Dominion asking which of the major political parties should win the next Federal election. If the Liberals or NDP receive so much as 1% of the vote we'd be surprised.

This push polling isn't consigned to the fringe right or left. Have you ever looked at a poll on "The Globe and Mail" and become mystified by how Canadians voted in the unscientific poll, as it was counterintuitive to everything we know about the social conscious of the country? Well, we can thank, in part, the Internet for that as well.

For a number of years, one of our members has been on the mailing list of a hard right evangelical who is pretty friendly and on a first name bases with the bigwigs of Canada's Christian right. Now, our member did not even seek out membership in this mailing list, but he decided to stick with it as it did, and does, provide an interesting look at the mindset of right wing Christians. in their effort to shape public debate.

One of the things the person who created the mailing list does is to send out links to online polls in an effort to swing the vote in their favour. Here are two such efforts:

Marc Lemire and the Heritage Front: Was He Ever the Leader?

We’ve been following the Marc Lemire (pictured) saga play out for some time. As a result of a complaint being brought against him by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, his constitutional challenge to Canadian hate crime laws, and his, shall we say, acrimonious relationship with Richard Warman, Lemire has become a cause célèbre for those opposed to the CHRC and CHRT. In fact, some have referred to Lemire as no less than a persecuted martyr and a free speech hero. A common cause makes for strange bedfellows; Ezra Levant, who is Jewish, has found common cause with a man who’s links to holocaust deniers and neo-Nazis is unquestioned.

Well, that’s not entirely true. In fact, those ties do appear to be questioned. Not just questioned, but outright dismissed as libelous.

One of the groups supporting Marc Lemire is Free Dominion. Free Dominion, an Internet political webforum, is the Canadian sister site of the American-based Free Republic, both of which are known for being particularly partisan. The members of their web forums don’t view political discourse as a competition of different viewpoints so much as a war of black and white where conservatives represent everything good and pure while liberals are communistic, atheistic, barbarians at the gate trying to destroy everything patriotic Canadians know and love. In short, they view politics as a struggle between good and evil and those who don’t fall into step with conservative positions are evil and must be destroyed.

Sound a little melodramatic? Take a look at the webforum of Free Dominion and form your own opinion (you might also wish to join and try to express a leftist or socialist view; you’ll learn quickly how their views regarding freedom of speech and expression don’t apply to anyone who’s speech or expression differ markedly from their own).

The Rise and Fall of a Racist Gang: Long, Nerland and Sims

We thought we'd direct our readers to this video from an old CBC story covering a racist skinhead/Aryan Nations rally in Provost, Alberta in the early 1990s. In this video is Carney Nerland, the Saskatchewan Aryan Nations leader who not long after the "First Annual Alberta Aryan Fest" took place shot and killed a First Nations trapper named Leo LeChance in Prince Albert. The organizer of the Provost rally, Terry Long, ran into his own legal problems when he was implicated in the brutal attack against Keith Rutherford in Edmonton. The attackers, young skinheads, were influenced by Terry Long.

The parallels between the Aryan Nations of the late 1980s and early 90s in Alberta and the Aryan Guard are compelling. Both groups had roughly 25 core members. Both groups became brazen enough to engage in public protests and/or rallies. The difference is that the Aryan Nations eventually collapsed as a result of the criminal activities of the membership. The Aryan Guard, thus far, is still going, however it hasn't been around as long as the Aryan Nations that was created by Long.

Any bets on how long it will be before the Aryan Guard also implodes?

A Bit of a Change

We were getting a little bored looking at green so we decided to change things up a bit. We also decided to provide a few laughs at the expense of Paul Fromm via "The Daily Show."

Statements by The Southern Ontario ARA: Gay Pride Protest and Levant's Statement of Defence

While we are not members of or affiliated with Anti-Racist Action and our methods are sometimes dissimilar, we do share common goals. We were recently contacted by one ARA chapter in Ontario going by the name of the Southern Ontario ARA (SOARA) regarding two matters. The first matter deals with the recent London, Ontario Gay Pride parade where SOARA and other anti-racist activists confronted a tiny contingent of Northern Alliance and Canadian Heritage Alliance members (in the photos one can see David Ruud, Tyler Chilcott, Randall Linton (who was arrested along with Tomasz Winnicki on weapons charges), and Melissa Guille as well as one as yet unknown Northern Alliance member):

Calgary Firebombing: Update

Remember this guy?

We'll get back to him soon enough.

On the evening of February 12, 2008, the home of Bonnie Collins and Jason Devine was hit by a firebomb. The home of another anti-racist activist was hit by a firebomb the same evening indicating the very strong likelyhood that this attack was no coincidence. Though the damage to both homes was superficial, the clear message was one of intimidation.

Neither Collins or Devine have been intimidated however and have instead increased their efforts to fight the presence of neo-Nazis in their community. The individual, or individuals, responsible for the attack, remain at large.

We don't think it would be unreasonable to suspect that members of the Aryan Guard might have some knowledge of the attacks. Jason Devine is a well-known figure in circles related to the racist movement. A grudge against Devine goes as far back as the days of the short-lived Western Canada For Us when Devine managed to disrupt a meeting by the WCFU with Paul Fromm and was one of the reasons why WCFU founder Glenn Bahr lost his job in Red Deer. Any new group wanting to make and impression might consider targeting Devine.

The reaction to the firebombing by the Aryan Guard was predictable, but still interesting. When encourage to condemn the attacks by another poster on the hate website Stormfront, Kyle McKee responded (grammatical, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling errors have been left as is):

Citizens Are Mobilized

We have said that we are not members of Anti-Racist Action (ARA), however we do support the aims of non-violent movements that oppose racism. In that vein, we will post the following announcement by ARA Calgary, a group that uses non-violent means to educate citizens about the dangers of the Aryan Guard and other such movements. ARA Calgary has acted within the law in their activism and have only acted in self-defense when they themselves have been attacked.

Anti-Racist Action Calgary have a proven record of success when it comes to shutting down racist groups such as the Aryan Guard. In recent years the efforts of ARA Calgary contributed to the collapse of Glenn Bahr's and Peter Kouba's racist group Western Canada For Us (WCFU) after only a few short, though active, months of existence in Alberta.


Ezra Levant. Irony or Chutzpah?

As we've said before, we don't have a dog in the hunt when it comes to the Ezra Levant saga. Yes, we're in favour and supporters of free speech even for the most vile of people since the protection of their speech protects our freedoms. Yes, Ezra Levant is an attention seeking media whore who is reveling in the attention and adulation of neo-Nazis who, if given the chance, would have him killed.

Whatever.

Still we do occasionally visit Levant's blog to see what he's whining about now. We recently clicked on a link that lead us to a blog entry where he was urging the U.S. Congress to put Canada on it's human rights watch list as a result of the Canadian Human Rights Commission's "abuse." At least that's what we think it was about based on the title; we were too busy laughing to get into the article much.

We're Mentioned in the "Briarpatch"

We guess this is a tooting our own horn moment, but we would have posted this link regardless because it's a great article. "The Briarpatch" is a progressive magazine that deals with issues ranging from human rights, corporate media control, the environment, and numerous other issue that are not effectively dealt with (if at all) by the mainstream media. In a recent article, "Fighting Fire With Fire: Anti-racist Organizing in Alberta" the magazine discusses the growth of the Aryan Guard in Calgary, but more importantly the efforts by anti-racist activists to shut the group down. This blog is mentioned in relation to the videos posted by Jason Harley and others:

If videos posted on the Anti-Racist Canada blog are any indication of the kind of non-violent family values the Aryan Guard espouses, Devine and Bernard have a right to be skeptical. In a profanity-laced diatribe, Aryan Guard member Jason Harley explains that multiculturalism is like putting a red sock “representing the communists” and a blue sock “representing the Jews” into a washing machine with a white load of laundry. “Everything turns fucking fruity and purple and fucking gay. Fucking retarded. There you go. Fucking white supremacy.” In another video, two Aryan Guard members fight bare-chested in the snow on a quiet residential street.

The A.G./ARA Throwdown: Much Ado About Nothing

On July 15, 2008 the Calgary ARA and an Aryan Guard member who goes by the name of Willis had a bit of a run in. The ARA members had been at a Calgary skate park putting up fliers and talking to the youths who hang out there. It appears that Willis felt that this was fertile ground for recruitment, even though some of the youths he managed to swing to his side aren't even White.

Now the Aryan Guard would have you believe that the ARA swarmed over Willis in his own apartment, but we think that after the amount of b.s. the Aryan Guard has spread, you won't buy it. So here's what did happen.

When the ARA members were leaving the skate park on their way back to the C-Train, the walked by an apartment complex. Willis was on his balcony and started Seig Heiling. Braniac then came down to start a fight. He threw the first punch which injured an ARA member. The next punch resulted in Willis taking a nap on the concrete.

More Aryan Guard Delusions

Kyle McKee wrote the following post on Stormfront under the heading, "White Nationlist Relocation Program - Destination Calgary":

The Aryan Guard is always seeking new brothers and sisters, if you are interested in relocating to our Calgary area, we will pay the damage deposit for your residence. We believe that through fortifying our current locations with more White Nationlists we can spread the world more efficiently and than in the future branch out further throughout Canada.

If you are interested in moving to Calgary, please let us know.


First, we note that McKee, who is functionally illiterate, has someone to proof read his entries before he posts them now (either that or OdinPatrick, the Canadian forums moderator on Stormfront, has been a busy beaver). Second, the claim of support files in the face of claims made earlier by an Aryan Guard supporter who now lives in British Columbia.

Yet MORE Aryan Guard Infighting

Racist gangs are pretty notorious for their misogyny. While the men talk about brotherhood and honor, they tend not to trust the women. At best, women in the racist movement are viewed as baby factories. At worst, trojan horses who's presence will bring down the movement. Then there are the majority who seem to view women as a warm, moist place to stick their penis' in and to bring them beers. Are members of the Aryan Guard any different?

Once again, meet John Marleau, one of the more high profile members of the Aryan Guard. We've been keeping tabs on Marleau for a while now, mainly because he's a loud and obnoxious jackass who calls attention to himself.

Marleau appears to be one of those misogynists. We first noticed this when he began threatening women online who were calling him on his racist rhetoric (one woman was a 12 year old girl, though that didn't actually stop John's text assault).

Recently, Marleau proved that he would attack not only anti-racist women, but even women who claim common cause with him, including the girlfriends of his racist buddies.

The whole affair began innocently enough. Dallas Price's girlfriend Kendra uploaded a picture of herself and her friend M.J. on Facebook. M.J. stated that the two were 'sisters' presumably in the same way that the male members of the Aryan Guard were, 'brothers.' Marleau took objection to this:

Shocking Update!!!!!!!

Some time between April 26 and May, Tyler Sturrup was arrested and was held in custody by the police. For close to a month.

Wait. Did we say shocking update? What we meant was run of the mill ordinary news when it comes to the Aryan Guard. Our mistake.

Okay, we have to admit that we missed the boat on this one so this isn't exactly breaking news, but we are including this now as it's one more nail in the coffin.

We can add Tyler to the long, and ever growing list of Aryan Guard members who we know have spent time locked up behind bars or who have otherwise run afoul of the law:

Kyle McKee, Dallas Price, Robert Reitmeier (who has recently spent more time in jail this year), Thomas Trennery, RN, Bill Noble, and others.

For all their crying about 'non-white' crime, we think one would be far more likely to be victimized by the average Aryan Guard member than any ethnic minority one might meet on the street.

We presume that Sturrup is out by now and in the loving arms of his girlfriend M.J., a lovely young lass who likes to post nasty little messages here (under the Nom de Guerre that will remain without mention as of this September 17, 2008 edit). We'll have more later as we continue to document the simultaneous destruction from outside forces and implosion from within of the Aryan Guard.

The Pettiness of Ezra Levant

We haven't spoken much about Ezra Levant and his issues with the Canadian Human Rights Commission or with Richard Warman. We're more than happy to leave all that to those with an intimate knowledge of the legal system while we focus on the street thugs; we know our place on the totem pole and we're happy to have carved out our particular niche. However, we couldn't let Levant's latest missive go without comment, mainly because it is so ridiculous and petty that it actually renders the rest of his arguments about the CHRC, well, you decide.

Here is what Levant wrote under the title, Athanasios Hadjis, jet setter:

Winnipeg Neo-Nazi May Get Back Children

We've already written about "Nazi Mom", the Winnipeg neo-Nazi mother who lost her children to Child and Family Services as a result of her husband "Nazi Dad" drawing Swastika and other racist symbols on her daughter and sent her off to school.

Well, it looks like she has now left "Nazi Dad" for a second time, a gesture that has convinced Child and Family Services that, perhaps, they could start re-integrating the children into her home with the goal of returning them for good.

While we will not take a position on whether or not the children should be returned to their mother, we are struck by her, "inconsistencies." You see, "Nazi Mom" also has an online identity. So, as "Nazi Mom", she'll say to the reporter interviewing her, "he's [her now estranged husband] a bigot. And I have no tolerance for bigotry or ignorance," she says the following as aryanprincess1488 on the Resistance Records forums (spelling errors are hers):

May 9, 2005: Hey all, I don't post much (I haven't an awful lot of time) but I showed my 12 year old niece this site and although I don't think she's logged on here she has informed me that she visits this forum regularly, and since I haven't been able to see or talk to her too much it's good to know that there is a place of rational and intellectual disscussion where she can come to learn more about the movement.
Winnpeg is infested with indians and other such inferiors, she's being taught in school that we're all equal and that not one race is better than another, but she is learning and I thank you for the intellegent conversation that takes place in this forum.
14/88


Seems pretty bigoted and intolerant to us. Why don't we look at a few other comments that "Nazi Mom" has said when interviewed regarding the loss of her children from the "Winnipeg Free Press":

Children Taken from Neo-Nazi Parents

We received two email asking why we haven't said anything about the children whom Child and Family Services took from their home after one of the children went to school with a swastika drawn on her, as well as other nazi symbols. Oh, dear readers, don't think for a moment this one has slide under our radar. We've been following this quite closely and we know the name of the father involved and the group he used to run with. Since children are involved and we don't want to run afoul of the law, we'll tell you what we think we can say at this point:

1. The father's initials are [removed]
2. "Nazi Dad" and his now estranged wife, "Nazi Mom" live in Winnipeg, however at least he used to call Brandon, MB home for a period of time.
3 "Nazi Dad" has a profile on the White Nationalist social networking site "New Saxon."
4. "Nazi Dad" and "Nazi Mom" have posted on Stormfront, though neither have been active for some time. They also both posted, fairly briefly, on the Blood and Honour boards. Seems they were trying to start some sort of group in Winnipeg, but managed to antagonize most of the other Blood and Honour forum members whom they came in contact with.
5. "Nazi Dad" was a member of a small neo-Nazi group based out of Brandon and Winnipeg, though it likely was mostly a web based movement comprising less than 6 individuals:

And Another One Bites the Dust: Richard Warman Takes Down Der_ Totenkopf

We updated the One Peoples' Project with the following news article (it should be up within the next day or so) but in the meantime, here's the story that will be printed.

Ciaran Donnelly

Add Ciaran Donnelly to the list of Canadian neo-Nazis that Richard Warman has effectively dealt with. Donnelly and Warman have come to a mediated resolution in Warman’s human rights complaint against Donnelly who posted as Der_Totenkopf on Stormfront, Blood and Honour and other Internet hate site forums. As part of the resolution, Donnelly is required stop posting hate propaganda online and to desist from further retaliation against Warman, permanently close his Stormfront account and request that all his past posts be removed, and finally to donate $1000.00 to the charity of Warman’s choice.

Aryan Guard and Family Values and Respect for the Law.

Once again, we thought we would share how the Aryan Guard and their supporters really feel about family values. Today's guest is Scott King, a man associated with the Aryan Guard and who attended the March 21, 2008 rally in Calgary. We include the following information from one of King's recent girlfriends:

Believe what you wish Chantale, you and anybody else who chooses to be so naive but every word is truth. I don't have the time nor the patience to argue about the validity of my experiences, I've done background checks, criminal checks, spoken to family and friends cross this grand country and they all say the same thing... virtually everything known about him is a lie. Ask him how he got the lump on his face? Ask him where he got the professional clippers or the womens razor or hell even the hoodie he is wearing. It was all stolen, the ring he wears stolen. Believe what you wish, I'm no "nutcase"... I'm fucking thrilled to have him out of my life, I'm only on here because he needs to return what he's stolen, pay back what he's taken, and stop hurting innocent people for his own personal gain and entertainment.

The fact of the matter is, Scott has stolen over a thousand dollars in cash, and nearly the same in property from two single moms who did nothing but take care of him for the last two months. He's lied, cheated, and went so far as to steal a childs toothfairy money. He beat himself up to play off an RCMP hostage situation, because he spent MY MONEY on drugs... and this isn't the first time, and it certainly wont be the last. If anybody wants the true story of what is has and always will be scott alexander wilford king... contact ***, the nutcase psycho bitch ex... who has a stack of proof 10x that of his pile of lies.

Paul Fromm is in favor of free speech. Unless it involves criticizing him

Paul Fromm styles himself as a free speech proponent. Others characterize him as a supporter of extreme ideologies such as those espoused by groups such as the Canadian Heritage Alliance, Northern Alliance, Aryan Guard, and other racist groups. Fromm's supporters also claim to uphold freedom of speech as a virtue.
Not surprisingly, their rhetoric doesn't always live up to it's promise.

Such is the case in a recent thread on Stormfront in the Canada section. In it, the participants argue discuss the best way to improve Fromm's Internet radio show that occurs nightly on Stormfront Radio. Having listened to the show, we suggest a new host because Fromm is just awful, but we're more interested in what John Beattie had to say:

Everyone is being ever so polite. The great one in question
[Paul Fromm] simply does not want anyone else to be heard, or notated, other than himself. Always was his way, and always will be his way. Gads I never thought others too would see this light of day. Pompous one man shows line pockets, but do not contribute one iota to saving our race. You can not drive a car with a license ending in 88, and wave the Union Jack at the same time, unless you are a huckster.

Editorial: In a battle of wits, the Aryan Guard appears to be completely unarmed.

It would appear that at least one member of the Aryan Guard have taken an interest in our articles about them and has created a blog to counter our claims. Now we would normally let this slide, and in the future we don't plan on responding to what they write, but this was too good for us to let the opportunity pass us by. We will respond to the scant information the Aryan Guard member has posted on his blog point by point.

They [Aryan Guard] seem to have a stalker, no one special 200, who makes all sort of unsavory allegations about the group, notably allegations of criminality and violence.

It's not an allegation, it's a documented fact:

However, what this character is careful to avoid mentioning is that virtually every violent incident that the members of the group have been involved in has been defensive on their part. For example, an incident involving an AG member stabbing someone will be mentioned, but the fact that that AG member was defending himself from fifteen assailants at the time will be glossed over.

Leaving a message? Be warned.

If you leave a comment advocating violence and threatening anyone who is written about on this blog, not only will we not be posting your message, we may pass the message along to the authorities should the threat be specific.

We guess that whomever posted the message we received is a troll who is trying to set some sort of trap for us; we allow the message to be posted and the troll then goes on Free Dominion or another such site to claim that we support committing acts of violence. Not going to happen. If the threat was serious, we're keeping the post in moderation and should anything happen to the individual you made vague threats about and you're responsible we'll make sure that anything we can do to find you, prosecute you, and convict you will be done.

Don't test us.

Aryan Nations in Saskatchewan? Not so fast.

At one time the Aryan Nations had a more high profile presence in Canada. The Canadian branch of the Idaho-based hate group was led by Terry Long. After staging a rally in Provost, Alberta (AryanFest) in 1990, the movement in Canada fell apart due to some high profile criminal incidents. In Saskatchewan, the Klan member and who was leader of the province's Aryan Guard group was named Carney Nerland. Nerland was arrested and convicted in the death of Leo LaChance, a Native trapper who was shot by Nerland in January 1991. That same year Long was implicated in an attack against Keith Rutherford by skinheads that left Rutherford blind in one eye.

After leaving prison Nerland disappeared and hasn't been heard of in the media. Long moved from Alberta to BC, was divorced by his wife, and except for his relationship with Todd Conroy, former leader of Volksfront Canada, has also remained silent since the mid 1990s. There were some half-hearted efforts to start up the Aryan Nations in Central Canada in 2003 (Andrew Talbot and Joe Subic were the only two active members at the time) but all have appeared to have been for naught.

Then, we came across this:


So, what's the story?

Jody Issel of Regina, Saskatchewan looks as if he's trying to restart the Aryan Nation's in Saskatchewan based upon the poorly constructed website he set up. Unfortunately, he's run into a few problems. First, there doesn't look like there's more than a handful of people associated with his little gang. That's minor compared to the other issue. It seems that none of the groups in the United States who claim to be the true Aryan Nations (as the hate group splintered after losing it's Idaho compound in a law suit and the death of Richard Butler) know who this group is.

Not that we care, but if you're going to claim to be an official branch of the Aryan Nations, shouldn't you let the head office know about you? There are reports that the various factions in the United States aren't pleased that their name is being used without their permission. Also, we're interested to know how long this hate site will be hosted by GeoCities which has a policy of not allowing hate sites to use their system.
