Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Jesse Wielenga Finished With WCAI?

In a recent (and as it turns out final) Facebook update before seemingly deleting his most recent account, Jesse Wielenga wrote that he was "finished" and that he would be devoting more time to his family. If we are to believe him, he's facing a pretty significant crisis that might result in the curtailment of ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Kevin Goudreau Planning Rally in Toronto And Pretending To Be A Hammerskin

When anti-government/anti-refugee extremist groups held rallies across the country on September 30, they were outnumbered in most locations by as many as 10 to 1 (only in Quebec were numbers more or less equal and perhaps Regina where no one even noticed the four people who were protesting). Perhaps the most humiliating event was that ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Right Wing Reflect on September 30th Rallies

Outside of Quebec where the Storm Alliance and La Meute were able to muster as many members and supporters as the anti-fascist counter protesters, the protests planned by the far right for Saturday were mostly a bust. In some cases such as Hamilton, the event was called off before it began. Other cities, Regina, London, ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Goudreau’s Peterborough Rally Already Unintentionally Hilarious

When ARC decides to write a story on Kevin Goudreau, it is usually, and justifiably, because he needs to be mercilessly made fun of because dear GOD does he deserve it consistently and frequently. When he receives mainstream press coverage, such as a few years ago when the National Post decided to run a story ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Part III: Northern Guard and Known Racist Supporters

The far-right in the country are continuing to prepare or September 30 and their Anti-Trudeauoloza festivities planned for various spots along the border. ARC is guessing that it will probably look somewhat similar to the anti-M103 events that took place during the spring — some locations better attended than others — but with numbers overall ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Secret WCAI Facebook Page Shut Down and DeLuca’s Goudreau Shout-out

So, the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam's secret Facebook group was shut down and despite his efforts to play it of as no big deal, Joey DeLuca is pretty upset. In a rambling video (in which I added a form of editorializing in the form of related images and videos) DeLuca goes on and on about ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Part I: Northern Guard Feel Press Misrepresented Them…. So Let’s Get To Know Them Better

I have to admit that keeping up with all the new ultra-nationalist groups that, while small in membership are springing up like weeds, has been challenging. In part this is because they are so incredibly fractious in nature; personality conflicts or the desire to "be in charge" results in one group splitting into two or ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Protests Planned For September 30 Because…. Reasons?

While I anticipate that the anti-government and Islamophobic rallies that have marked the past spring and summer with diminishing returns will start to decline as fall arrives and cease almost altogether as winter takes hold, the folks the blog keeps an eye on appear to be getting at least one "national event" by the end ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Ryan Dean’s Bizarre Leap of Logic

There was a time when I or the other writers (when there were other writers) would post "fan mail" from our detractors because it was funny as hell. I haven't done so in a while, and though this doesn't necessarily constitute "fan mail" it is indeed funny as hell. Sometimes, one enjoys a good laugh. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: PEGIDA Canada Rally in London, ON

As a result of their first public rally where they were swamped by those who opposed them PEGIDA Canada had been until today very quiet about their protests, instead opting for “flash protests” where the time and location was never announced and disseminated only among participants. They decided to change that strategy announcing a rally ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Events in Charlottesville, VA: Some Canadian Racists React (Part II)

ARC continues to watch the fall-out from the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally and counter protest. It didn’t take long for Charlottesville “truthers” including Canadians to emerge suggesting that the murder of Heather Heyer was either: A false flag. An accident precipitated by the actions of the counter protesters. Committed by a “left-wing” Bernie Sanders supporter.  George ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Events in Charlottesville, VA: Some Canadian Racists React

I imagine that many of ARC's readers have been following the White Supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA as well as the large counter protest opposing them. The anti-fascists, anti-racists, and faith groups, and others faced off against bigots who, in many cases, were armed. There were a number of people injured and at least one counter ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Anything happen while I was away?

After writing the last post on August 6, I decided to forgo using the Internet for a few more days. Being exposed to negativity and hatred daily will take a mental and emotional toll on anyone and I've learned that it is important to get away from it to recharge. As such, I had been ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: July 2017 Bits and Bites Part I: More Proud Boys, Fromm and Goudreau Antics, and Hamilton Shooting

Well it has been a few days since ARC first published the story on the Proud Boys who disrupted the memorial in Halifax and who happen to be members of the Canadian Armed Forces…. for now at least. As much as ARC would like to take the credit for the story becoming as big as ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: ARC’s Response to Outing of "Nazi Mom"

We're sure that by this point, talk about ARC's communication with the woman referred to as the "Nazi Mom" has become fairly wide spread within the bonehead community in Canada and elsewhere as a result of poor security on her part. There is no indication that ARC email accounts have been compromised. To address the ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: March 19 Anti-Muslim Rallies: Some Victories, Some Hard Lessons

By this point ARC readers know that any time we mention Kevin "The Chairman" Goudreau on the blog, it is probably because he did something profoundly stupid or embarrassing but isn't self aware enough to realize that this is the case: Yep, the Goudreau held a rally in Peterborough while wearing an ill-fitted suit because he ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Gavin McInnes’ Bad Week

I have to admit to the readers of this blog that I have derived from Twitter what might be considered somewhat of a perverse joy concerning this particular feature: Yes, ARC has been blocked by Kevin "The Chairman" Goudreau. This occurred a few years ago after Goudreau realized that we were getting screen shots from ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Aftermath of Anti-Muslim Rallies on March 4

We spent much of the day compiling reports about the protests that took place in a number of cities across the country. In the vast majority of the cases, anti-Muslim protesters were outnumbered considerably by counter protesters who favored M-103. In some cases the anti-Muslim protesters decided to leave when they noticed the space had ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Jody Issel, Soldiers of Odin Moose Jaw President, Isn’t Even Trying Anymore

You know, if there's one positive thing about Trump's election is that the racists we've been covering here for years have become refreshingly honest about their views. Take this guy for example: Now this is admittedly an older photo of Jody Issel, but it does sort of capture a particular moment in time, specifically the ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: The Goudreau is Aggrieved

We’re currently working on collecting information for an article on the Soldiers of Odin in Saskatchewan, specifically the leadership in Moose Jaw and the connection to the neo-Nazi movement in this country and abroad, however we thought we’d share something that came across our desk and caused us to collectively giggle. Last month we reported ...

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 ...
