But just as racist movements have gained a foothold, there is an equally long history of groups in Alberta that sprang up to oppose and uproot them. The KKK of the 1920s was rendered impotent when Albertans realized that the Klan’s claims to morality and virtue rang hollow and hypocritical when founder and organizer J.J. MALONEY was jailed for embezzlement. Terry Long’s Alberta Aryan Nations collapsed as a result of a successful lawsuit initiated by a man attacked by skinheads under the influence of Long (CARNEY NERLAND had been convicted earlier of manslaughter in the death of First Nations trapper Leo LaChance in Prince Albert). In 1984 Keegstra was stripped of his teaching credentials, charged with “willfully promoting hatred against an identifiable group,” and convicted. Western Canada For Us fell apart almost immediately after it began due to the efforts of community activists and the Edmonton police’s Hate Crimes Division. Glenn Bahr and Peter Kouba, along with members CIARAN DONNELLY and JESSICA BEAUMONT have been or are currently subjects of human rights complaints brought forth by anti-racist activist and attorney Richard Warman (Bahr is also the subject of a criminal case for violating section 319 of Canada’s Criminal Code). Now a new group going by the name Aryan Guard, based primarily in Calgary but with members and supporters from other cities within and outside Alberta, has emerged. And, as has occurred in the past, the community is rising up in opposition.
The Aryan Guard began in late in 2006 but only recently has the mainstream press been paying attention. While there doesn’t appear to be a single leader, there are some well known neo-Nazis who have joined the group, first and foremost being BILL NOBLE. After Noble’s Fort St. John apartment was raided by B.C. police he moved to Edmonton, Alberta in part to avoid a future arrest. During this time he made contact with other Edmonton neo-Nazis including Glenn Bahr and NATHAN TOUCHETTE, rooming with both on different occasions. He was also spotted at the University of Alberta campus in a building where Richard Warman was giving a speech on Internet hate. Noble was eventually arrested in early 2006 for violation of section 319. His trial ended a couple of weeks ago with the verdict coming down in February 2008. In the meantime Nobel began his own political party (with a membership of one) before throwing his support behind TERRY TREMAINE and his National-Socialist Party of Canada.
Noble isn’t the only notable neo-Nazi who is a member of the Aryan Guard, a membership claimed to be around 20 individuals. Another person, also a friend of Nathan Touchette, is KYLE MCKEE who posts as pitbull-A.G. on Stormfront. McKee made the news a few years ago when he and Touchette began flying the Nazi flag over their shared apartment in Kitchener, Ontario. When both made it known that they planned on moving to Calgary to work in the city’s booming construction industry, Calgary mayor Dave Bronconnier announced through the media that both men were not welcome. Both McKee and Touchette came anyways, but their stay didn’t last long. Touchette went back to Ontario within a few months, returned to Alberta to live in Edmonton, then left that city under a cloud of suspicion regarding a number of assaults and arson. McKee was arrested for assault, possession of a weapon, and wearing a mask in committing his crime and spent a number of months in an Alberta jail; upon release he to went back to Ontario. However, he did eventually return to Calgary, impregnated his 16 year old girlfriend Jackie, and helped to found the Aryan Guard.
Though it was organized in late 2006 the Aryan Guard has been truly active since March 21, 2007 when they had their first official meeting, the first of a number of scheduled for the year as listed on their website, the domain registration being in Noble’s name. Predictably their April meeting was on 20th to commemorate the birthday of Adolf Hitler. They held two meeting in June, one on the 16th to listen to guest speaker Ontario neo-Nazi leader and fired high school teacher Paul Fromm. While they do have a meeting scheduled for August 19, a number of Aryan Guard members headed to rally and camp-out between August 4 – 6 organized by disgraced former University of Saskatchewan lecturer Terry Tremaine. Among the Aryan Guard members in attendance were Noble, McKee, DALLAS PRICE (wpcalgary on Stormfront), JOHN RICHARDS (it’s unknown if this is his real name or a pseudonym), THOMAS TRENERRY (“Canadian caucasian” on Stormfront), and a number of other members and supporters.
Aryan Guard members had been putting up fliers prior to August 14, 2007 blaming minorities for committing multiple crimes in the city, however it was on August 14 that the media really began paying attention. The tabloid, “The Calgary Sun” published a short article on the hate group’s efforts in the city and attributed the fliers to Noble since the Simon Wiesenthal Center have noted them as his handiwork. They were also the subjects of reports on the local news on at least four occasions since then.
As evident by their discussion on Stormfront, the Calgary racists couldn’t be more pleased with the public attention believing that any publicity is good publicity. PAUL FROMM has also added his voice to the discussion:
Of course, it's poorly screened immigrants behind many recent violent crimes in Calgary. Note how Leo Adler and the Wisenthalers define "hate" -- it's dissent from the multicult agenda.
While they might be happy with the attention now, we suspect that they won’t be happy very soon. We’re going to look at this quote by Fromm and look at members of the Aryan Guard. It will be evident to everyone that it isn’t just “poorly screened immigrants” who are behind violent crimes in Calgary.
On their website the Aryan Guard make claims that they are opposed to violence:
1. Aryan Guard completely opposes violence, terrorism and criminal activity as a means to achieve our political aims. We however do support organizations that do. Aryan Guard will use the tools of education, training, community activism and example to gain public support.
3. Aryan Guard will use political non-violent means to achieve our goals, in every case striving to educate rather than offend the communities in which we operate. We reject the simple psychology of reactionary politics as a recruitment tool.We think that this claim rings a bit hollow when presented with reality but we’ll let the readers be the judge:
Kyle McKee and Dallas Price were both charged with assault using a weapon. One person was stabbed in the incident. Keep that in mind when they later go on to complain about assaults and stabbings that have recently occurred in Calgary.
[Stormfront Post By Kyle McKee - March 9, 2007] good to see your [“Skogarmadur” who is an Aryan Guard member named RYAN] finaly off house arrest give me a call and we will get together and drink "pop" because we aren't alowed to drink booze ;)
[Stormfront Post By Kyle McKee - April 16, 2007] Ya I think I counted about 10 or so people that didn't make it out! But to all the people that did make it, thank you for coming out. there will be another meet on the 20th for adolf hitlers birthday and in memory of all the P.O.W.'s! We are hopeing to have a big turn out! We are going to be asking for donations of $10 as a fundraiser for P.O.W.'s. We will be haveing a BBQ and a few drinks. please PM wpcalgary or myself if your interested in comeing. But a bit of good news, for thouse of you who didn't know boy white [an Aryan Guard member or associate from B.C.] was arested and held in the remand center over the past 4 days but we were able to get him bailed out this morning and should be a free man by this evening!
[Stormfront Post By Kyle McKee August 11, 2007] A good brother of ours "German pride" [ROBERT REITMEIER, another Aryan Guard member] has been in the Calgary remand center now since around may and has been in and out since November of 2006 when he was charged with attempted murder [the link to the arrest and charged is found here]. I have asked him if he would mind if I posted his story on here and he said it would be fine. There was guy in the downtown area that was beaten with in an inch of his life suffering an open skull fracture and was bleeding heavily from the head. He was found early the next morning and was taken to the hospital and slipped into a coma and still remands in one to this day but hasn't died yet to the best of my knowledge. They had origanly picked up some indian for it. that indian wrought 3 diffrent statments none of witch were the same except they all pointed the finger of convienenc at a skinhead. We used to all drink at this bar called "the crazy donkey" where this indian and the victom also drank at. now I might tell you all abit about this part of town. it is one of the highest crime parts of the down town and the bar is right across the street from a drop in center where all the homeless and drug dealers can all eat and live of the backs of the working class. the indian that made the 3 statments is a drug user and a suspected drug dealer. Pretty much what it comes down to is our brother rob was arested because he is a skinhead. There is no real evidence other than the rambelings of some indian. Forensics came back with nothing and are only really going on the statments of an indian trying to get out of a charge. He would really like it if anyone took the time to send him a letter of support. We have been sending him money every week but I thought it would be nice if some more people could at least right him a letter. so here is his address
Robert Reitmeier, Calgary Remand Centre, 12200 85st NW, Calgary, AB.We should note that we did not edit McKee’s writing at all. He appears to be functionally illiterate.
[Posted By Dallas Price, May 3, 2006] I am currently attending a court ordered criminal course run by the extra-judicial sanctions program. (Formerly the alternative measures program.) On Monday the topic of the class was racism, and wouldnt you know it, the movie we had to watch was American History X.Aryan Guard acknowledges the right of all people, religions, races and cultures to live free from fear, oppression, exploitation and foreign domination.
Again, judge them by their own words.
[Stormfront Post By Canadian Caucasian, also known as Thomas Trenerry, Aryan Guard member, responding to the recent media attention – August 16, 2007] The jews are trying to get us fired. They keep showing the same pictures over and over. I dont think any of us in the Pictures are too worried. It just shows how much the jews control the media. Apparently it is now a Hate crime in Canada to be a White man.The filthy kikes think that we will stop because of a few pictures? This is a war with only one solution. The Final Solution! Sieg Heil! [These four short sentences were edited out of his original post at 10:57 am. Good thing we caught it to preserve it for posterity and to show what these people really think.]On September 6, 2006 Dallas Price and his neo-Nazi associates attempted to intimidate Food Not Bombs in Olympic Plaza in an unprovoked confrontation [Links found here and here].
[Stormfront Post by German_Pride, March 29, 2006] Ya, i agree you should come to alberta, lots of like-minded peopel here, less indians, unfortunitely more of every other filthy race though..how long are we going to let this mud blood invasion persist?lace up your white laces, sew on some patches and EARN YOUR REDS! [red laces signifying that the wearer has drawn blood or killed someone]
[Stormfront Post by German_Pride, April 10, 2006] It is our given right by blood to own/carry weapons, whether the laws of the oppresive government you live under approve or not! Its a right that was passed down through generations from stone to speer-sword to gun, only the strong shall prevail, hand to hand combat becomes useless against a firearm, or even explosive (obviously), so what will you do when your faced with a situation which immediately requires some form of weapon?bare arms, legal or not! i do
[Stormfront Post by Skogarmadur, March 25, 2007] Race Mixing is treason - I myself believe that in the future once a National Socialist government is put into play any sort of interracial "affairs" should be considered treason. And treason should be treated with the death penalty. Not only is it betraying your race and kin, but it is ruining the future of the white race and if people continue to do so it will be the bringer of destruction of all that is Aryan blood.
[Bill Noble posting on his Wikipedia page as Exterminance] I'm not sure if you grasp all the fine points of survival in the face of natural law, but the bottom line is: the end justifies ANY means. [this was apparently in response to a question regarding the use of violence and murder in pursuit of “white nationalist” goals].
[Stormfront Post By Kyle McKee April 17, 2007] The jews do alot more behind the sceans and I would almost belive that the jews would try and push the idea that these other races are the ones that need to be delt with first. But the thing is that these other races only are what they are they for the most part are not bright enough to master mind the destruction of a race. they are like rats the are all running out of this hole on the deck of your boat, now you can try and catch them all and trow them over board or you can try and stop the flooding that they are all runing from and I'll bet if you stop the flood then you'll find that the flood was caused by some termights/jews. When people find this out we can get out the pest controlWe could go on and on and on.
The Aryan Guard was flying under the radar for months with only a few progressives monitoring and tracking their activities until the recent attention from the mainstream media. Though right now they’re happy about the attention they’re receiving believing it will result in more members, the history of similar organizations does not bode well for their future. When Western Canada For Us founder Glenn Bahr appeared on the “Peter Warren Show” the group collapsed.
Albertans from all walks of life and ethnic groups have condemned the Aryan Guard and are looking for action. Considering the thuggish behavior of its members it won’t be long before the Aryan Guard also collapses.
