On August 10, we posted an article concerning Jeff Goodall's efforts to win a seat on the Oshawa city council. As an unrepentant member of the old Edmund Burke Society and as an unrepentant racist, we were quite interested in his campaign. His friend, former leader of the Canadian Nazi Party John Beattie who is campaigning for the position of deputy reeve in Minden, Ontario, was quite happy with our article as he believed it would result in more votes for Goodall. However Goodall dropped out not long after our article was published citing the difficulties of a city-wide campaign. We had, somewhat tongue in cheek, taken some credit for his leaving the race. Goodall denied our article had anything to do with his dropping out of the race, Beattie at one point believed that our article was a contributing factor. Soon after though he apologized to Goodall for having written that the ARC article "scared [Goodall]" and caused his departure from the race.
Now, if our readers are wondering how we know so much about this, the reason is that we have had access to Beattie's email blind list for close to three years. Well, indirect access. We aren't on the blind list itself, but we are on another mailing list in which Beattie's messages are also included. Call it a sort of racist news aggregate. We never paid much attention to his messages (we actually got to the point where we were deleting the mailing list messages we were receiving from this source because they weren't especially interesting or useful), however Beattie's decision to seek elective office in Mindan resulted in our keeping tabs on his messages.
A few of his earlier messages, including one where he states his belief that elections are a waste of time as well as one that mentions lil' ol' ARC, are included here:
Back briefly to Goodall, we actually have Beattie to thank for letting us know that Goodall was running in the first place:
