Yes, There Are Neo-Nazis In Canada

Writing recently, columnist Jonathan Kay argued that there aren’t Nazis in Canada.

He couldn’t be more wrong.

I study the new-far right movements, including Canada’s alt-right neo-Nazis. I listen to their podcasts and read their forums. I watch them participate on the fringes of anti-Muslim and free speech demonstrations wearing their coded symbols. The hatred I see is very real. Downplaying the threat communities face, and the need to take steps to counter hate groups, is nothing short of dangerous.

By any common sense definition, Canada’s alt-right are neo-Nazis. They hate Jews, call for the deportation or extermination of non-whites, and glorify Hitler and the Nazi esthetic. When they address each other in their own spaces, they self-identify as fascists or neo-Nazis. Their goal is cultural change, to push their ideas into mainstream discourse so that they can be discussed with fewer social consequences. They have been responsible for over 43 murders and 60 injuries, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. That number includes the victims of Alexandre Bissonnette, who murdered six Muslims at prayer in Quebec City last year, and the bodycount is rising.  (more...)

What is more disconcerting is the access of leaders like Richard Spencer to billionaire oligarchs such as the Regnery publishing emperor. Very small men can swing very large hammers, given that kind of support. During my college residency, which placed me in a milieu of very connected people, I observed a confluence of old Nazis, high-level Freemasons, and New Age Luciferians. This milieu reached out to lesser fellow travelers like Ernst Zundel and Paul Fromm. Years later, I encountered the work of Christopher Simpson and John Loftus documenting the ratlines that secretly brought Nazis to powerful positions in the Western scientific and security establishment. The small time street thugs are not the most dangerous part of this crowd.

Evangelical Minister... or closet Luciferian?
