PEGIDA Gets Chased Away.

PEGIDA Canada, a racist anti-immigrant group from Europe has been trying to establish itself in Canada. Much like Your Ward News, they also claim not to be racists and Nazis, and make appeals to liberal notions of free speech in defense of their hateful views.  They tried to have a demonstration in Montreal back in March, but were shut down.

Today in Toronto they tried to hold a rally at Queens Park, but were greatly outnumbered and ultimately had to be escorted away by the police for their own safety. In attendance was racist murder Chris Broskey who YWN endorsed for city council last October.

Long time Nazi organizer Paul Fromm, who was also  endorsed by YWN chimed in in defense of the racists.

And YWN editor James Sears who’s also “totally not a Nazi” is endorsing National Socialism in Hungary and calling for migrants to be “impaled” via twitter.

Statistics like, these, are probably super inconvenient for right wing anti-immigrant racists, Nazis, and Islamophobes.

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:

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.

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.

Racist Anti-Immigrant Bullshit

James Sears’ wannabe political party has full page promotions on the front and back pages of the March 2015 issue of Your Ward News. In the party’s platform, Sears suggests that immigrants are responsible for “increased crimes rates, degradation of public morality, and a deteriorating Canadian economy”. His stance on immigration is pretty much identical to what you’d commonly hear from neo-nazis and other organized hardcore racists.
