St. Michael's College Luminary: Paul Fromm

Paul Fromm with David Duke
He serves as the international director for the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a direct descendent of the White Citizens Councils that rabidly opposed school desegregation in the 1950s and 1960s. He formerly hosted a daily radio show on Don Black’s racist web forum, Stormfront. Fromm also lectures frequently in both the United States and Canada and has appeared at annual conferences hosted by the CCC and the white nationalist American Renaissance.

Paul Fromm was born in Bogota, Columbia, to a devoutly Catholic family, and was raised in Etobicoke, Ontario, after his family relocated. He attended the University of Toronto’s St. Michael’s College where he earned a degree in education and a master’s degree in English.

While a student at the University of Toronto, Fromm co-founded the ultra-conservative, anti-communist Edmund Burke Society (EBS) with Don Andrews and Leigh Smith. The EBS was involved with several violent confrontations with New Left and anti-war groups, including a conflict in 1971 during a speech given by William Kunstler. Fromm was knocked unconscious after having a pitcher of water thrown in his face. In the early 1970s, he led an EBS takeover of the Ontario Social Credit Party. He was elected the party’s president in 1971, and in 1972, the group changed its name to the Western Guard (WG). Fromm, after serving as the opening speaker at a May 1972 event honoring Robert E. Miles, a Klansman and Christian identity ideologue, resigned as president following a report by the Toronto Sun.  (more...)

Here's where Paulie was sheep-dipped by the Toronto Catholic School Board to pursue his political aspirations:

Cheer up. The future's so bright I gotta wear shades:

The illustrious faculty
The reader may wonder what could draw the likes of Gregory Baum and Paul Fromm together. We may gain some insight from Judith Reisman:

I lived on campus during that time, although at the opposite corner of the St. George complex. I found Nazis there too, so it wasn't an isolated phenomenon.

Do Catholics dance with Nazis?

You have to be a college-educated Catholic to party with this crowd:
