“We swear.. We’re not actually Nazis”

Since James Sears AKA Dimitri the Lover has taken over as editor, Your Ward News has gone into full reactionary persecution complex mode. We’ve seen less content from YWN regulars like Nazi scumbag Gary Schipper, AKA J.J. (although he’s now listed as a “Senior Journalist“) and Nazi/Paul Bernardo fan Michelle Erstikiatis, and the newspaper has almost exclusively become an outlet for James Sears to promote himself, his anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and his hopeless fantasy of political office (we can’t help but wonder if Leroy is being muscled or manipulated out?).

Sears’ conspiracy theories have become personal lately, and he now thinks the Zio-Marxist hoards have the Post Office, the NDP, the Liberal Party, the unions, and even local graffiti artists working together to silence him. With this level of organization, surely the Bolsheviks will be kicking our doors down any minute, demanding collective use of your toothbrush for the globalist proletariat.

Sears has offered a free dinner with himself (more like a punishment than a prize) to anyone who can decipher a word spray painted above “Nazi fuck” which someone recently scrawled on the office window of YWN at 163 Main St. Far from being part of a union led terror campaign, it looks like the graffiti was done by a local tagger who goes by ‘Sherm‘. How unbelievable is it that people in the community would want to vandalize your office window if you publish a Nazi newspaper, and make your address public? It had to have been part of an elaborate conspiracy! While we support the act, and couldn’t care less about the property rights of Nazi degenerates, we can’t take responsibility for this little tag.

This month‘s wrap blames Israel and the CIA for 9/11, and continues into some Rothschild conspiracy theories about the monetary system and assassinations. And of course, voting for Sears will keep the lizard people at bay.

Apparently YWN publisher Leroy is Metis, so it looks like he’s trying to pull some liberal identity politics bullshit by now stating boldly on the front page that the newspaper is “METIS OWNED & OPERATED SINCE 2007”. The publishers of this blog are against colonialism, and stand in solidarity with ingenious struggles whenever possible, but we also recognize that belonging to a certain group doesn’t mean that you can’t also be a racist piece of shit. It’s pretty funny that Leroy and YWN constantly go off against what they perceive as leftism and political correctness, and then adopt the kind of meaningless identity politicking that liberal leftists are notorious for. Leroy certainly doesn’t represent Metis people, and most would likely be disgusted by his racism, bigotry, and support for Nazis. I’d be curious to know what Metis lineage Leroy claims, and if his kinfolk are aware of his Nazi affiliated newspaper claiming to be Metis? Sorry Leroy, but being Metis doesn’t give your Nazi fuckary a “pass” or deflect the rightful criticism you’re getting. That’s shitty ID politics 101.

metis

Much like Leroy’s abuse of Metis identity, James Sears frequently claims solidarity with Palestinians.

palestinian

The publishers of this blog also stand in solidarity with Palestinians in their struggle against colonialism and violent dispossession. But what separates us from people like James Sears is our motivation. While we see the violence of political Zionism as an appendage of western colonialism, and not representative of Jewish people as a large and diverse group(s), Sears uses the cynical logic of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, seeing Palestinians as hopeful allies or possibly a wedge issue, and constructing conspiracy theories about “bloodthirsty Zionist Talmudic Jews” and stating “Jews are obsessed with myths about gas chambers and ovens. But there is one REAL oven that the Zionist Talmudic Jews … should be worried about: GOD’S OVEN! It is called HELL and it is where they are going to go if they do not immediately repent for their sins and accept Jesus Christ into their hearts.”

This writer has years of experience doing Palestinian solidarity activism in Toronto, and has personally chased away Nazi scumbags like Sears who thought they could infiltrate the movement and spread anti-Semitism, only to find Palestinians and Jews and people from all backgrounds working together against colonialism and racism.

Sears is closer ideologically to the Kahanists who burned Ali Dawabsha to death (except for Sears’ conspiracy theories about Jews of course) than any Palestinians he deceitfully claims solidarity with.

Oh.. and here’s Sears making crude racial/sexual remarks about Olivia Chow..

chow

classy.

The whole farce of “free speech” and “political satire” is transparent to anyone paying attention. We’ve been reading Your Ward News critically for about a year now (yes, it’s been nauseating), and have documented on this blog numerous accounts of racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, incitement to hatred against immigrants, and support for known Nazis. These examples, in their tone, context, and frequency couldn’t possibly be considered political satire. Anyone who, after looking at the evidence, comes to the defense of YWN and/or James Sears, is either willfully ignorant, or supportive of their bigotry (or both).

As if YWN wasn’t enough of a gong show, Toronto conspiracy theorist creep Lawrence McCurry recently jumped into the mix. McCurry is vaguely known by some in Toronto for showing up at activist events looking like inspector gadget, claiming to be a journalist, and taking voyeuristic pictures of people with the likes of Greg Renouf.

occupy-what-lawrence-mccurry

In addition to being hilarious looking and writing terribly, McCurry shares Leroy/Sears’ passion for Marxist conspiracy theories, and he recently wrote an article defending YWN and posted a supportive interview with James Sears to his Youtube channel:

McCurry is a big Rob Ford fan, and thinks the Lac-Megantic train derailment was a “false flag” carried out by “globalist elites”.

We sent some info to McCurry about Sears and Leroy’s connections to well known Nazis, and articles promoting racism and misogyny etc, but he’s convinced that YWN are some kind of anti-establishment heroes being persecuted by the Zio-Marxist conspiracy. So whether McCurry’s support for this hate group is based on fantasy conspiracy based affinity, or just McCurry’s bad genes and stupidity, it’s clear that Lawrence is a Nazi supporting piece of shit like his buddies at the newspaper.

Clearly Anti-Semitic Front Page – Still Delivered By Canada Post

The front page of August’s issue of YWN featured a green skinned “Rothschild” puppateering various political candidates. The cartoon prominently features a Star of David, and implies that Jews are somehow conspiring to control all politicians, and thus our lives.

cartoon

Also, James Sears recently tweeted an endorsement of blackface as a measure of freedom…

blackface

Promotes the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn in Greece, and then advocates rape in consecutive tweets…

gldndwnrape

I’m admittedly getting a bit tired of endlessly documenting the undeniably fascist, racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-immigrant bullshit coming out of 163 Main St. I think with this months over the top incitement to hatred against Jewish people front cover, Canada Post will have a hard time remaining “neutral” and continuing to distribute this. We just might have to give them a little push.

The newspaper is apparently so rotten that some postal workers have gotten a rash from handling it

Delivered by Canada post or by hand, some of us in the community are committed to seeing that these scumbags aren’t left to fester, and we will keep the pressure on them until they disappear completely.

NO SPACE FOR NAZI SCUM!

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 Bashes The Poor

Leroy’s cornucopia of hatred and bigotry really is well rounded. Here’s an article from 2013 suggesting that panhandlers are not really homeless, and keep dogs as props to milk people for sympathy money.

 

homeless

 

And here’s another article from 2013 called ‘Beach Bums of Queen St’ further attacking panhandlers, and suggesting that people with disabilities who collect benefits are all lazy scammers.

 

https://yourwardnews.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/beach-bums-of-queen-street-by-robert-james/

 

Some people who panhandle are’t homeless. Some are. It really shouldn’t matter. Anyone who’s ever done the math of the welfare system knows that $615 a month doesn’t even pay the rent, never mind food, transit, and whatever else. Nobody wants to be panhandling or on welfare. It’s miserable and humiliating. This kind of hostility and suspicion towards people who are struggling to survive day to day is low, even for scumbags like Leroy and Robert James. So far I have yet to see YWN pick on the elderly, but I wouldn’t put it past them. If you’re downtrodden and marginalized, whoever you are, there’s a vitriolic article somewhere in Your Ward News blaming you for it, and stoking fear and resentment against you.

To Clear A Few Things Up

We don’t feel like we really have to contend with the views of Leroy St. Germaine and Your Ward News. The lines are pretty clearly drawn for anyone who looks at the evidence. But since Leroy has a tendency to lie, we just thought we’d clarify a few things.

All of the outreach this group has been involved in has been polite and non-confrontational, ie: calling advertisers in the newspaper and talking to venue owners of Leroy’s live music events. We’ve simply provided them with information on Leroy and his racist newspaper, after which they’re left with a decision. We’ve never called Leroy, despite his assertion that some mysterious anonymous caller has been harassing him. As a person who’s openly racist and also publicly publishes his phone number, is he really surprised?

We are not terrorists, nor are we Marxists, LOL. Nothing we have done has been in any way violent, threatening, or illegal. When backed into a corner and confronted with the disgusting and unpopular nature of his ideas, Leroy is calling anyone who opposes him a “terrorist” or “Marxist conspirator” or some other scary McCarthyist slur.

It’s sad that Leroy is tokenizing the few people of colour who will associate with him, and it’s sad that these few still cling to him. But having a black friend doesn’t make one “not racist.” How many times have we heard old white men proclaim that “I can’t be anti-Semitic, my wife is half Jewish!” or “look, I’m nice to the black person who serves me food… I’m not racist!”. Racism is insidious. When marginalized and seeking broader legitimacy, many of the worst racists and Nazis have been willing to make compromises and work with those they claim to hate. Martin Heidegger had a love affair and friendship with Hannah Arendt who was Jewish, but that didn’t mean that Heidegger wasn’t a despicable Nazi.

Leroy compares his publication to Charlie Hebdo on the basis that both are “controversial,” and to further his persecution complex. While Charlie Hebdo is a left wing satire magazine that makes fun of the far-right, racists and xenophobes; Leroy’s newspaper is a far-right publication that prints polemics attacking immigrants, Jews, women, LGBT folk, and people of colour. There’s really no comparison other than in Leroy’s very active imagination.

We respect Leroy’s right to think and say what he wants. But unfortunately for Leroy, freedom of speech goes both ways. If he wants to publish obscene hatred and bigotry against some of the most vulnerable and oppressed members of society, then those of us who are decent will take it upon ourselves to expose and confront him. We’re not against music either. Quite the contrary. But as long as Leroy uses his live music events to legitimize himself, and to fund his hateful publication, we will make connections between his music events and his racist newspaper, and try to shut them down.

And how odd that Leroy often quotes George Orwell. Is he not aware that Orwell was heavily influenced by anti-authoritarian communism and anarchism? Nobody said Leroy was smart, or consistent though.

Birds Of A Feather – The Nazis Really Love Leroy And Your Ward News

Seems like Paul Fromm is returning the favor. After Your Ward News recently endorsed Neo-Nazi leader, and Ku Klux Klan affiliate Paul Fromm for mayor of Mississauga, Fromm responded by writing an article supportive of YWN on his anti-immigrant website Canadian Association For Free Expression. The article, supportive of Leroy in his recent spat with Canada Post, also appears on the racist web forum “White News Now”.

free ex

Another white supremacist web forum called Viva Malta, reprints this Your Ward News article which reviles the dystopian horrors of racists, sexists, and homophobes being subject to stigma and ostracization for their  abhorrent views. Those poor oppressed Nazis and their lack of freedom of speech 😦

nazis

And another Nazi website called Vanguard News Network (that carries the not very subtle subheading “No Jews. Just Right”) republished Robert James’ anti-immigrant article from Your Ward News called Diverse Multiculturalism, And Foreigner Privilege. The article was posted by a man named Alex Linder, a notorious Nazi from Missouri. Maybe Paul Fromm isn’t the only prominent Nazi YWN has connections to?

diverse

So congratulations Leroy, Robert James, and Your Ward News. The hardcore Neo-Nazis think you’re doing a great job, and you’re right down there with them in the lurid depths of turpitude and degeneracy.

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

Lastly, here’s James Sears and Leroy speaking out against diversity, posted on a Nazi Youtube channel. I wonder if Sears is aware that QUAIA’s membership was heavily Jewish and heavily Marxist (actual Marxist, not the imaginary conspiracy theory kind that Sears is afraid of)?

Sears ends this segment off with that tired old chestnut blaming the Jews for 9/11, and then goes on to blame Jews collectively for his misconstrued revision of the historic crimes of communist dictatorships. Blood libel much? It’s like everything these clowns believe was taken from a racist conspiracy theory blog, or an Alex Jones video. Epistemological standards people – keep them high, or you might end up sounding like these insane, racist asshats.
