Canadian Bonehead Response to Charleston Church Murders

When the "National Post" published the article focusing on Paulie's involvement with the Council of Conservative Citizens (CoCC), the hate group that inspired the murder of 9 men and women at Mother Emanel, his friend and fellow CoCC supporter Jared Taylor noted that the story wasn't so bad:


This led to one of the more "out there" exchanges on Facebook that we've experienced in a while:







While it is pretty funny to witness just how disconnected with reality that boneheads can be, the murders in Charleston really did bring out the worst in a lot of those who we cover here on the blog.

Paul Fromm and the Council of Conservative Citizens: Canadian MSM Makes Connection

In the early hours of June 22, we published a story that reminded our readers that Canada's own Paul Fromm is closely associated with the Council of Conservative Citizens (CoCC) as both a board member and as the international director. The CoCC is in the news as a result of their connection to the Charleston killer and, falling from that, the financial contributions made by the CoCC president to a number of high profile Republican politicians. At the end of our article, we made the following comment:

At the end of the article we posed the following question:


Well, it looks like Paulie has had just that opportunity:

Paul Fromm: Council of Conservative Citizens Link to Charleston Killer

In the "manifesto" published on his website before he murdered nine men and women, the Charleston killer was clear who first inspired his hatred of African-Americans:

The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words “black on White crime” into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong....

The MSM has begun to focus on this connection and the nasty rhetoric of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CoCC) that appears to have contributed to the Charleston killer's actions:

Extremist group cited in Charleston killer’s alleged manifesto is active in S.C., expert says

CHARLESTON The writer of what could turn out to be Dylann Roof’s manifesto cited the Council of Conservative Citizens as something that influenced his thoughts on race and racial separation.
....
Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, told The Los Angeles Times that much of the language in the manifesto was material lifted from the CCC, which he called a “modern reincarnation” of the old White Citizens’ Councils that in the 1950s and ’60s resisted school desegregation in the South.

“The CCC is very active in Roof’s home state of South Carolina,” Cohen told the paper. “It seems the CCC media strategy was successful in recruiting Roof into the radical right

He identified the CCC’s webmaster as white nationalist Kyle Rogers, who lives in Summerville, a Charleston suburb. According to a report on the website, the Internet-savvy Rogers trained as a computer engineer and moved to South Carolina in 2004.

The CCC’s website also rails against immigrants in the country illegally, defends the Confederate battle flag flying on the South Carolina capitol grounds and in 2011 pushed for a boycott of the movie “Thor” because it cast Idris Elba, a black actor, as a Norse god. 
....

It might interest our readers, including members of the msm who read these pages, that Canada's own Paul Fromm is a member of the CoCC. Here he is in October 11, 2007 discussing a sanitized version of the CoCC, a hate group on which he sits as a board member and is described as the organization's international director:

Dean Clifford: #Winning Everything!

This past week the long awaited trial of Dean Clifford began.

It also ended very quickly as Clifford, using the genius legal maneuvering such as not calling any witnesses, refusing to participate in the trial (as much as he could), and engaging in linguistic semantics:





Well, things must have gone exceptionally well since Dean made an announcement on June 19:

Updated: Charleston Killer and Racist Symbolism

Update: Warren Kinsella is right. This guy's name shouldn't be repeated.

We will be posting an article on this horrible tragedy that examines the reaction from Canadian boneheads soon, however we did want to briefly discuss part of the Charleston killer 's, "manifesto" that had published online prior to the murder of 9 men and women as well as the photographs that were found on a zip file on the website. Unbelievably, despite evidence from the Charleston killer 's own mouth at the time of the murders that his motivation was racially based and his subsequent confession, there are those who still persisted in the belief that the attack was motivated by some other factor (some on Fox News suggested that it was an attack on Christians primarily). Other claims are even more ridiculous; it was a false flag operation and there wasn't any murders at all, the Charleston killer was on drugs; he was an FBI/NSA/CIA plant to discredit "White Nationalists," and he was actually an Obama supporter (based on a very poor photoshop of the original picture).

But then there are also the photographs he posted (aside from those where he is wearing the jacket with the Rhodesian and apartheid-era South African flags) that are filled with racist symbolism:

Paul Fromm: Norman Raddatz The Victim

Before beginning, we need to acknowledge the terrible tragedy that occurred yesterday in South Carolina. Our friend Daryle Jenkins of the One Peoples' Project as well as the folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center have been providing coverage of the racially-motivated mass murder and we recommend our readers take a look those websites. We will provide our take, and focus on the Canadian reaction, on a later date.

Earlier yesterday, the funeral of Constable Daniel Woodall took place. Woodall was murdered when he and other members of the Edmonton Police Service attempted to arrest Norman Raddatz on charges related to the continued and escalating harassment of a Jewish family. Raddatz also appears to have subscribed to the Freeman ideology, a pseudo-philosophy that has resulted in numerous violent acts in the United States where is it most prevalent.

Some time after the funeral took place, Paulie saw fit to add his $0.02:

video

The video is classic Paulie. Poor audio. A woman on crutches holding the camera. And numerous self-serving half-truths and lies.

We could discuss the claims he made about the demise of Glenn Bahr's WCFU. We might also have something to say about his suggestion that those involved in the assault on at least two men in Edmonton by members of Blood & Honour were exonerated (in fact Badrock had his charges stayed, Bernie Miller plead guilty, and McKee was sent away on weapons charges as a result of the investigation). We'll let those pass though. Let's for now counter the claims Paulie makes regarding the murder of Const. Daniel Woodall (we admit that we might have a few things mixed up and would welcome correction if we provide any inaccurate details):

Based on our current understanding, the police arrived to arrest Raddatz for his harassment of the Jewish family. He refused to open the door. The police then got a warrant and an hour later tried again. He still refused to come out. The police then used the battering ram. When Woodall and at least one other police officer entered (Sgt. Jason Harley) entered, Raddatz opened fire killing Woodall and injuring Harley. Though Paulie claims the police came in weapons drawn and shooting, it would seem the only shots fired were from Raddatz who is alleged to have fired more than 50 rounds at the police; some of the shots fired ended up in neighboring homes and it is lucky that Raddatz didn't kill anyone else.

Seems to be a little different than how Paulie characterized the event, eh?

But the part that this writer finds especially galling is who Paulie suggests is the victim:

Raddatz the victim?

You stay classy, Paulie.

Kyle McKee On Trial For Assault.... Again

This story actually goes back to September 2013. We had confirmed that McKee has been in jail for a couple of months at the end of 2013 but we didn't then know the details. Since then we had moved on to other issues and did not do a hell of a lot to follow up on the charges, but today we were sent two messages (the first coming from a friend whom it has been too long since we've spoken to) that have filled in the blanks:

Calgary white supremacist Kyle McKee denies assault, say the first time he saw alleged victim was in court
BY KEVIN MARTIN, CALGARY SUN
FIRST POSTED: TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2015 09:30 PM MDT | UPDATED: TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2015 09:35 PM MDT


Calgary white supremacist Kyle McKee denied Tuesday that he assaulted a city man who insulted Adolf Hitler.

McKee told defence counsel Adriano Iovinelli he had never met his accuser, Jeremy Martin, until he saw him in court.
....
McKee, 29, faces a charge of assault with a weapon in connection with the Sept. 14, 2013, incident.
....
In submissions to provincial court Judge Bill Cummings, Iovinelli said there should be a reasonable doubt about McKee’s guilt, since Martin never mentioned the scar across the bridge of his client’s nose and his tattoo.

Cummings will rule July 20.

Now everyone is innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law, so we suppose McKee could very well be telling the truth. However there are a few things that McKee said during his testimony that sort of strike us as just a wee bit dishonest and thus call into question his claim that he had never seen the alleged victim before.

Let's take a look back at some of the following articles from the not-so-distant-past, shall we?

Dean Clifford's Trial Begins

Well, to be fair it actually began on Monday. Still, here's an update of what has transpired thus far:

Freeman acting as own lawyer while defending drug, weapon charges
By: Mike McIntyre 
Posted: 06/15/2015 3:38 PM

One of the leading members of the so-called Freeman on the Land movement is now acting as his own lawyer as he fights numerous drug and weapons offences.

Dean Clifford was arrested in November 2013 following a search of a property in St. Andrews. He appeared in a Winnipeg courtroom Monday for the start of his week-long trial.

RCMP allege that Clifford was in possession of marijuana and several firearms which weren’t licenced and improperly stored.

"I object to these proceedings in their entirety," Clifford said today in response to each of the 14 charges which were read against him.

Queen’s Bench Justice Chris Martin instructed the court clerk to record that as a "not guilty" position. That drew the ire of Clifford, who repeatedly insisted the federal government has no standing to prosecute him.

"I am here under extreme threat and duress," Clifford said. "I’m not representing any thing or being. I’m sorry the law seems to offend people around here."

Clifford was repeatedly warned by the judge to stop interrupting and be respectful of the process. He called Clifford’s position "absolutely wrong-headed and non-sensical."

Everyone in the territorial jurisdiction of Canada is subject to the Criminal Code," Martin explained. "The time for games is over."
...

It goes on to discuss two others who attempted to use the defence (who we remind our readers was arrested in 2013) that Clifford seems hell-bent on using; one of those cases is still before the courts and the other one fared poorly for the defendant.

Earlier today Clifford posted the following on his Facebook profile providing his account of the day's events:

"Cobbsville Redux" or "The Sequel is Usually Worse Than the Original"

Insanity: 1. the condition of being insane; a derangement of the mind. Synonyms: dementia, lunacy, madness, craziness, mania, aberration.

2. (Law) such unsoundness of mind as frees one from legal responsibility, as for committing a crime, or as signals one's lack of legal capacity, as for entering into a contractual agreement.

3. extreme foolishness; a foolish or senseless action, policy, statement, etc.; folly; senselessness; foolhardiness.

4. doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

5. (Noun) Craig Cobb.

Our readers will no doubt vividly recall Craig Cobb's efforts to take over a small, North Dakota hamlet in order to turn it into a White Nationalist enclave. Our readers will further remember the giddy excitement from some boneheads (such as our own Tomasz Winnicki) and the ridicule of the effort by other boneheads. Finally, our readers will remember the absolute disaster of Cobb's attempt to take over the town which ultimately culminated in his arrest and later guilty plea to keep himself out of prison.

When the debacle had passed and he had been released from jail, Cobb suggested that he was done and was going to retire from the movement, at least as a public activist. Considering his desperate need for attention, we never believed him for a moment.

Guess what Craig Cobb is planning to do again?

Don't @#$% With Richard Warman: Part VII (UPDATED)

At least we think we're on to Part VII. Really, after a few years one does lose track.

In any case, a few years back a number of bloggers and others accused Richard Warman of posting incredibly racist comments about Caribbean-Canadian senator Anne Cools. It seems the accusation may have originated as a result of Warman's Se. 13 case against Marc Lemire. It was suggested that Warman had posted the statements on Lemire's Freedom-Site based on what was then alleged to have been an ip address Lemire and Klatt had linked to Warman. Warman denied this and there was absolutely no evidence to support the claim, but conservative Internet personalities like Kathy Shaidle and her husband Arnie, Kate McMillan of "Small Dead Animals", the good folks at Free Dominion, Ezra Levant, and a few others ran with the claim.

Mr. Warman insisted that they remove the defamatory claims from their respective websites. They doubled down. He sued.

At first they were all pretty confident that they would be able to prove that Warman had written the incredibly vile comments in question. They were especially smug when Levant was able to convince the courts to have Warman's hard drive subjected to a forensic examination:




Long story short, the forensic examination found absolutely nothing that would link Warman to the racist comments made about Ms. Cools. The other "evidence" also turned out to be a heaping load of nothing as "Bouquets of Gray" pointed out:

  1. the IP address used by the author of the Cools post (which had later been used by Warman) was a load-balancing proxy usable by any of Rogers' close to a million customers;
  2. the browser and setup used by author of the Cools Post was different from Warman's in several key ways (here and here);
  3. the 'expert' opinion presented by Bernard Klatt arguing that Warman was the author of the Cools post was deeply substandard in several ways (here)

Ya, that's got to sting.

The first shoe to drop was Arnie of "BlazingCatFur" back in January 2013. Today, Kate "Small Dead Animals" McMillan and Kathy "Five Feet of Fury"Shaidle joined Arnie in apologizing to Warman for the unfounded and defamatory allegations made against him:
