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,Continue reading
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 crudeContinue reading
It goes without saying that the mass murder that took place in Orlando last week horrified all decent people. Whether the murder was motivated by an extremist interpretation of Islam, homophobia, or a combination of all of the above and aided by a gun …Continue reading
Of course, there are those out there who would use the tragedy to further their own agenda.
It’s sort of hard to take Ron Banerjee seriously in light of a long history of homophobic statements and online post (see here, here, and here as only a few examples). It’s even less believable when, only a day before he posted on Twitter attempting to promote himself as a fighter for LGBTQ rights, he emailed the following to Gerry Lincoln (yes, THAT Gerry Lincoln) who forwarded the exchange to us:
Not to be outdone, fellow Trump supporter Paul Fromm also offered his $0.02 which also includes Southern Ontario Skinhead member Dan Hall also contributing his thought…. if it could be characterized as such:
And then, there’s PEGIDA Canada.
- Lawyer urges Canada Post to halt distribution of extremist newsletter
- Complaint filed against Canada Post for east Toronto tabloid delivery
- Why an Ottawa Lawyer Filed a Human Rights Complaint About an East Toronto Tabloid
- Human rights complaint filed against controversial newspaper
- Human rights complaint filed against Canada Post and federal government over ‘offensive’ newspaper
Banerjee is suggesting the attack on a Sikh man in Quebec was a direct result of Sikh terrorism (though his first point equating requests for reasonable accommodation with terrorism might be a bit of a stretch) and that the men who engaged in the attack should be praised:
Yep, there’s video.
Note how brave these men really are:
Yep, drunkenly berating someone with racial taunting, then ganging up three on one to assault him, sure struck a blow against terrorism.
But then this isn’t the only problematic video for Banerjee.
A little over a month ago, Banerjee decided that he was going to engage in a little bit of street preaching:
This video was taken by a person who posted it on reddit. Evidently one woman, not appreciating being told to cover up and dress modestly by a bunch of misogynistic assholes. took matters into the own hands and flashed them. The first street preacher was apparently so upset by being subjected to secondary sexual characteristics that he left the scene.
Banerjee? Well, we’re sure he was torn. On the one hand he hates women. On the other, he’s a sexually repressed pervert.
So what’s a sexually repressed, misogynistic, pervert to do in this situation?
Creepy perv for the win apparently:
Oh yeah. We probably have mentioned it already, but Banerjee also loves him some Trump.
Finally, in news that will surprise no one, we’ve learned why Hitler-loving Buddhist and Fromm supporter ($$$) has been quite for a while. [NOTE: Thanks for catching the spelling error]
He was committed:
Look, we genuinely feel badly for anyone suffering from bipolar disorder. But we would hope that Mr. Ruhe would perhaps take some time to consider that believing Hitler as a spiritual guru might lead a few to reasonably consider that you’ve taken leave of your senses.
Not long ago we reported that Richard Warman had taken an interest in James Sears and “Your Ward News,” noting that when Mr. Warman takes an interest in a hate group and its members, said hate groups members usually come to regret Mr. Warman’s interest…Continue reading

This past Saturday Republican primaries were held in Kentucky, Maine, Kansas, and Louisiana. Donald Trump managed to win both Kentucky and Louisiana by fairly comfortable margins. It was amusing then when we listened to the talking heads on MSNBC ponti…Continue reading
A little over a year ago we posted an article regarding a planned Valentine Day massacre in Halifax that the police managed to prevent before it started. The three individuals (one of whom killed himself as the police closed in) had social media presen…Continue reading
When one is challenging groups such as PEGIDA Canada the accusation that the membership and supporters of similar groups hold racist views is countered by the statement that, "Islam is not a race." In our view, there's a lot of parsing of the terminology going on here, however when weContinue reading
We've spent much of the day watching the fallout from the PEGIDA Canada rally that took place yesterday. One thing that seems clear is that the folks who organized the rally (1) were disappointed by their own turnout (2) were taken completely by surprise regarding the reaction of people opposedContinue reading
Well, it looks like the PEGIDA Canada rally and counter-protest was a rather boisterous affair. Back on September 13, we posted a message announcing a protest by anti-fascists to take place in Toronto opposing PEGIDA Canada who’s organizers announced their rally would take place on September 19. Perhaps ironically, ol’Continue reading
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. Usually the significance that individualContinue reading
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 hadContinue reading
When Pegida began to organize in Montreal, we began to keep an eye on what was happening. Unfortunately Quebec remains a bit of a problem area for us in that we have no active ARC members in the province and all the members we do have are hopelessly unilingual. WeContinue reading
Late last month we posted an article on an apparent assault during Ford Fest. Ron Banerjee, who has been featured on this blog as a result of his virulent Islamaphobia, is seen in a video with his hands around the throat of a protester at the event. Prior to thisContinue reading
Last time we mentioned Ron Banerjee in an article he was acting as the wingman to Islamaphobe Eric Brazau. Banerjee claims to be the head of the largest Hindu advocacy group in Canada he has named Canadian Hindu Advocacy. The reality is that the CHA seems to consist solelyContinue reading
This really isn’t in any way intended to be a comprehensive article. We just thought we would share some information on the legal front. First, the deadline for Marc Lemire to seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court (re: the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision) was on April 1.Continue reading
We didn't write about the folks with Canadian Hindu Advocacy (all two or three of them) or their plan to harass Muslim worshippers outside a Toronto mosque by parading dogs in front of it (because for some reason the myth that Muslims hate and/or are afraid of dogs has managedContinue reading
