Your Ward News and White Nationalism

Your Ward News often claims to be simply a “controversial” or “satirical” newspaper that is pushing the boundaries of free speech in some libertarian crusade against the forces of censorship and big government. This is a tired old trope that’s been used by Neo-Nazis for ages. Take for example Paul Fromm and his “Canadian Association for Free Expression“. Fromm has been an active Nazi organizer and recruiter for decades and has ties to the KKK., yet he frames his organization in terms of liberal defense of free speech. The now defunct Heritage Front also tried to deflect criticism from it’s Nazi organizing by appealing to liberal notions of free speech. Your Ward News has connections to both Paul Fromm and the Heritage Front.

It’s common for Nazis and other fascists to tone down their rhetoric when they’re marginalized and looking to recruit, seeking to appeal to a broader audience of potential supporters by pandering to less hardcore racists and conservatives with issues like immigration and free speech. But it usually doesn’t take much digging to get the full story.

This blog has made numerous connections between Your Ward News and it’s writers and supporters, and the broader Nazi, White Nationalist and fascist movement. And we have documented many incidences of racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and other forms of hatred and bigotry in the pages of YWN and in statements from people associated with the group. Please take the time to browse our blog to see the evidence.

In keeping with our purpose, we will continue this documentation as needed, but feel we’ve amassed enough evidence here to slow down a bit and not pick apart every repetition of hate speech that comes out with each new issue of YWN.

The Your Ward News Watch Facebook page was recently visited by well known Michigan White Nationalist John Nugent who left us a post about a Jewish Israeli historian (Shlomo Sand) who recently renounced his Jewish identity. The link was left with the quote “Look at this horrible antisemite”. We can only assume that this was an attempt to deflect criticism from YWN and to obfuscate and minimize real anti-Semitism. Shlomo Sand is a controversial figure, but whatever ones feelings are about him, the existence of a Jewish Israeli historian who’s deeply critical of Jewish identity and especially nationalism, certainly doesn’t legitimize the Holocaust denial and conspiracy theories about Jews coming from people like Nugent, and YWN.

As it turns out, Nugent and YWN publisher and owner Leroy St. Germaine are Facebook friends.

Nugent is a well known for his virulent anti-Semitism, racist conspiracy theories about aliens, and absurd fringe history:

Further to our recent exchange with Nugent, YWN editor and scumbag Holocaust denier/serial sex offender James Sears was recently quoted on the white supremacist webforum Stormfront:

It appears that a Nazi from Winnipeg going by the name ‘vikingwarlord14’ (LOL, WTF!?) wrote to James Sears recently looking for info in the NCP’s platform in relation to white supremacy.  According to vikingwarlord14, Sears replied somewhat receptively:

“The New Constitution Party recognizes “white genocide” as a real phenomenon. For example, abortion only targets white Christian women. Also, “anti-racism” is merely code language for “anti-white”. As for immigration, it would be unrealistic to limit it based on colour.

Instead, it should be limited based on country of origin. Furthermore, stopping it all together makes no sense for what you are concerned about because whites are reproducing more slowly that other races, so Canada would become even LESS white if we do that. Instead, we should promote EUROPEAN IMMIGRATION ONLY, from people who have deep roots in Europe.”

James Sears also got some recent coverage from a news site called ‘Renegade Tribune’ run by white supremacist Kyle Hunt who staged a “white man’s march” in 2014 in the states.

So add this to the cache of evidence of connections to Nazis and hateful and bigoted expression coming from James Sears and Leroy St. Germaine next time they play the freedom of speech card.

Incitement To Hatred Against Immigrants, Bizarre Infighting, And More Holocaust Denial

This month’s YWN includes an article that repeatedly refers to immigrants as “parasites” and blames immigration for crime, pollution, illness, gridlock, high housing costs, taxes, high food prices, bad DNA, and a lack of farmland. It also proposes walled concentration camps for refugees in Canada.

In another article about James Sears’ bizarre fallout with Star Ray TV and the cancellation of his TV show, Sears refers to a woman of colour as a “negress”.

We might have agreed with the article criticizing the Canadian government for its genocidal policies against aboriginal peoples, except that it was written by despicable white supremacist Gary Schipper under his pseudonym J.J. I’m not sure what angle they’re playing, but somehow I doubt that this well known Nazi is sincere in his ostensible support for aboriginal peoples.

And then there was the article decrying Canada’s new spying bill (C-51) written by Arthur Smitherman (George Smitherman’s weird Rob Ford loving brother). It puts us in a strange position when these racist scumbags take positions similar to ours in opposition to things like the residential school system and government spying. It’s worth taking a minute to reflect on the nature of right wing populism. Much like Rob Ford’s campaign rhetoric or other hysterical right wing quacks like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh or Alex Jones, Your Ward News and Sears’ political club try to frame themselves as some kind of anti-establishment force for social change. Some of the concerns they raise are legitimate such as social insecurity, political corruption, government spying, and atrocities committed by the Canadian government, etc. But instead of finding in these legitimate problems a coherent political (or anti-political) critique and potential solutions that are actionable, YWN turns to scapegoating immigrants, Jews, women, people of colour, and the poor, and spins grandiose conspiracy theories about ZioMarxists, FemiNazis and municipal politicians working with unions to stymie your freedom. Dont get us wrong – most of the issues YWN raises are pure fantasy and don’t deserve any analysis. And of the few legitimate concerns they do raise, not only do they offer no actual solution, but they offer Neo-Fascist populism as a “solution”. So buy more newspapers and join the NCP to help Native people and stop bill C-51? Thankfully, very few people are stupid enough to believe in this kind of absurd and hateful nonsense. But YWN is still delivering their racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant newspaper to thousands of homes in the Beach(es), so we’ll continue reading it, exposing them, and working to shut them down.

In closing, here’s some holocaust denial and conspiracy theory cray cray from Leroy’s facebook:

Child Abuse?

James Sears AKA Dimitri the Lover, editor in chief of Your Ward News, and Holocaust denying, misogynist, homophobic, scumbagxenophobe is unfortunately a father.

It’s disturbing that anyone would breed with such a lowlife. But possibly even more disturbing is that Sears is using his infant son as an avatar for his neo-fascist politics. This picture was recently posted by Sears to his twitter account. In the caption, Sears compares his infant son to Hitler. This is the same twitter account that Sears uses to give instructions on how to rape women, and to deny the Nazi Holocaust, among other insane bullshit.

dimitri

In last months Your Ward News, Sears’ partner and the Mother of his son was credited for an article that described the role of women in Sears’ misogynist political fantasy. It was a piece promoting “traditional” patriarchal gender roles, with men being at the forefront of social and political life, and with women playing a subdued and “supportive” role as unpaid caregivers, nurturers, and domestic servants.

“…the NCP has no official “active” role for women”

For most people who’ve ever put serious thought into the concept of gender, unless they’re blinded by religion, ideology, or a desire to maintain power over others; it’s clear that patriarchal gender roles are devices that have been socially constructed over time, not only to establish and maintain men’s subjugation of women, but also to reduce men to a narrow set of “inherent” characteristics which serve the interests of those in power.

It’s sad and concerning that Sears is using his family to promote his fascism and misogyny. We won’t assume that Sears’ partner is a victim or that she is being manipulated. Perhaps she is, in which case we hope she gets the help she needs to leave. Or perhaps her internalized sexism and support for fascism is independent and considered (in whatever way such bankrupt ideas can be “considered”). What kind of a person would marry James Sears? And what kind of life will their son have if he’s being raised to believe that it’s OK to rape women, and that a secret cabal of Marxist Jews are lying about the Holocaust in a conspiracy to control the world?

Your Ward News’ Door To Door Fraud. More Holocaust Denial By James Sears.

Several residents in the Beaches neighborhood have reported that canvassers have shown up to their doors selling tickets for Your Ward News’ music “festival” the Beaches Blues Fest/Danforth Music Fest. This is odd for several reasons. Firstly, because the “festival” is now a paranoid, invite only “open stage” (there’s no stage though) at the newspaper’s office. Hardly a “festival”, Leroy’s feeble attempt at live music promotion has been shunned by any potential venues after people in the community learned of the connections between BBF/DMF, YWN, and the newspaper’s racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic content, and support for Neo-Nazis. So it seems strange that Leroy would be canvassing the community selling tickets for such a reclusive event that’s “not open to the general public”, and where “no commies or lefties” are allowed. Clearly Leroy and YWN are feeling the heat and desperate for money.

And secondly, the BBF/DMF are being canvassed as a “non-profit” that “supports street kids”. Considering the history and ideology of the people involved with this newspaper and it’s associated music “festival”, this is a shameful and sinister fraud. Leroy did donate tickets (not money) for one of his music events to an org that helps street kids once. Eva’s Initiatives has since stated that they will no longer accept any donations from Leroy after learning about his hateful and bigoted newspaper. The actual content of Your Ward News is even more startling, considering that they’re billing their music events as a “non-profit” “festival” that “helps street kids”.

Here’s a picture from  YWN’s May 2013 issue. It shows a young man panhandling, and insinuates that street kids are “unmotivated slackers”, who leech off taxpayers, and are “violent, aggressive, and use drugs”.

street

And here’s an article from the same issue of YWN. Robert James describes his escapades with Michelle Erstikaitis on a Rob ford community clean up day. The article describes people in the Downtown East community of Toronto as “vermin” and is surprising, even by YWN standards, in it’s viscous hatred of poor and marginalized people.

robjames

How a group that spews such virulent intolerance against poor people can lie so blatantly and claim that it’s somehow “helping street kids” with the money it’s trying to raise is beyond obscene.

So watch out for door to door fraud by this despicable hate group. Danforth Music Festival and Beaches Blues Festival are owned by Leroy St. Germaine, the same waste of oxygen who owns and publishes Your Ward News. If they come to your door asking for money, you might want to report it as fraud.

*****

And James Sears, YWN’s new editor in chief is all kinds of anti-Semitic crazy lately. His most recent tweet is a Holocaust denial video featuring “pastor” Steven Anderson, the leader of a Christian fundamentalist hate group from Arizona. Like minds I guess.

YWN Giving Space to Former Heritage Front Member Gary Schipper

ON Pg. 5 of May’s edition of YWN, there’s an add for “Johnny Jensen”, The Human Jukebox. He does parties, events, lessons, and more! But one of the images on Johnny Jensen’s ad is also the profile picture for the twitter account of Gary Schipper, former member of the notorious and now defunct Neo-Nazi group The Heritage Front.

 

According to Wikipedia, Gary (“Johnny Jensen) is “J.J.”, his pseudonym as a frequent author of articles in Your Ward News (we always thought J.J. was just another pen name for Leroy, but apparently not). This makes two well known Neo-Nazis writing/working for YWN.  The other being Michelle Erstikaitis.

 

Despite being a notorious anti-Semite, Johnny/Gary seems to by quite fond of Leonard Cohen.

May’s Dose of Crazy

Apparently Holocaust denier, and serial sex offender James Sears has been promoted to editor in chief. Maybe Leroy is getting ready to retire? Or maybe Sears is just the stronger personality, and Leroy is getting pushed aside?

In any case, the crazy conspiracy theories, historical revisionism and anti-Semitic bullshit are extensive in this month’s issue.

Front page is a cartoon making fun of Jews and the Holocaust:

may6

Sears’ first article starts off stating that he was “elated” about the Charlie Hebdo massacre, is “elated” when abortion doctors are killed, and thinks the Charlie Hebdo killings and 9/11 were false flag attacks carried out by Israel.

may

J.J. (Gary Schipper) calls the Holocaust a “Holohoax”:

may1

Sears writes another article citing as his primary and only source, a book by notorious racist, Holocaust denier, and conspiracy theorist Michael Hoffman

may3

The article states that blacks were better slaves than whites because biologically “they could handle the heat” and that calling a white person a “redneck” is worse than calling a black person a “nigger”:

may4

The article concludes by theorizing that white people were not in fact responsible for slavery, and that he will reveal in next months issue who the “real” perpetrators of slavery were that the ZioMarxist controlled media is hiding from you (SPOILER: He thinks it’s the Jews).

may5

So with Sears as new editor in chief, I think we can expect an even grater level of crazy, and a stronger focus on bizarre conspiracy theories, especially of the anti-Semitic variety. They write pretty indignantly against any suggestion that Canada Post could stop delivering them because of their hate speech, and they’re offering cash paid daily for telemarketing jobs, likely because so many people have canceled their ads in the paper and they’re looking for new revenue.

may2

So keep up the complaints top CP and calls to advertisers on pages 5, 6, 8 & 11. It’s working.

Your Ward News Goes Full Nazi

In their recently released April edition, apparently being delivered by Canada Post, Your Ward News dedicates four full pages to promoting the New Constitution Party. The second page includes an image of NCP’s membership card.

fasces

Note the fasces, the symbol of Italian fascism. Also note the membership number, 88 – code for “heil hitler” amongst Nazi scumbags. And further note the issue date, April 20th – Hitler’s birthday.

******************

Page 1 is an article titled ‘Freedom of Speech, the Heilist Ideal’

heilist ideal

Aside from the Nazi play on words, the article goes on to defend holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, and invokes racist anti-Semite David Irving, and the pseudoscientific and widely disproven Leuchter Report.

Much of the rhetoric of Nazis in Canada and abroad tries to frame racism and fascism as “free speech” issues in order to obscure fascism’s true intent. Whether genocidal scumbags should have the right to promote their thoroughly meritless ideology is debatable (I personally couldn’t care less about their free speech “rights”). But if free speech exists for fascists, that creates a responsibility for decent people to be vigilant and fight against fascism wherever it tries to use free speech to establish itself.

***************************

The issue also includes two articles by Nazi/Paul Bernardo fan Michelle Erstikiatis, the second of which is an analysis/endorsement of White Nationalism in Canada.

white nationalism

And there’s a bizarre full page comparing Hitler to David Suzuki, and promoting Hitler’s “softer” side as an animal lover, and someone who the “ZioMarxist controlled mainstream media” is feeding you “LIES” about.
