An Examination of Marc Lemire: Part VIII

NOTE: First, because of its relevance, we would suggest our readers take a look at the latest post on BCL's blog.

The folks at Free Dominion really aren't fans of BCL's "Daily Nazi" series. There are two recent posts specifically that our faithful reader "Maikeru" particularly takes umbrage with which have relevance to our project:

BCLSB author Michael J. Murphy's online repition [sic] (likely repeated to MP Chisu) of a 'Wikipedia' comment that "Lemire was the last president of the often violent Heritage Front organization", is calumny. 

The two posts that Maikeru is referring to are here and here. To sum up, Maikeru states that:

Under-handed methods to diminish Mr. Lemire's public reputation include a concerted effort to paint him as 'Heritage Front Fuhrer', as illustrated by the 'BigCityLib Strikes Back' posting referenced above, and a series of ongoing articles mounted on 'Anti-Racist Canada', and disseminated to associated online websites, entitled 'Examinations of Marc Lemire'.

The effectiveness of the methods employed to blackball Mr. Lemire are amply illustrated in the immediate reply from MP Corneliu Chisu on the same day Michael J. Murphy contacted his office to share, presumably, similar tainted information to that which he earlier posted online.

The crux of Maikeru's complaint is that Lemire is there is no evidence that Marc Lemire was ever the leader of the Heritage Front. Concerning BCL's use of Wikipedia:
Mr. Murphy's own 'googling' went no further than cutting and pasting an unsubstantiated accusation from 'Wikipedia' - a notoriously unreliable source of information on any contentious issue.

Maikeru also dismisses Joseph Brean's article and Matthew Lauder's assertion that Lemire led the Heritage Front:

Note that neither the Brean nor Lauder references actually substantiate the quote cited in Wikipedia - in turn repeated by Michael J. Murphy in his 'Daily Nazi' smear of MP Corneliu Chisu - they merely repeat an oft-stated false meme.

If these were the only sources to substantiate the claims regarding Lemire, then we would be hard pressed to argue with Maikeru, however there is also the fact that, during the Zundel deportation hearings, Justice Pierre Blais concluded based on the evidence he was provided with that Lemire was, indeed, the last leader of the Heritage Front. 

[35] Furthermore, Wolfgang Droege and Marc Lemire, two successive presidents of the Heritage Front, spent a lot of time in Mr. Zündel's house. Mr. Lemire, the last known president of the Heritage Front,


Finally, in paragraph 35, Justice Blais states unequivocally "Mr. Lemire, the last known president of the Heritage Front" - a point amongst the information Mr. Abrams referenced as proof that Marc Lemire held that position, but as yet not directly confirmed by any other known source, notwithstanding Mr. Abrams' seemingly circular reference to the Blais Decision itself.  

Clearly, Maikeru doesn't feel that the determination by a federal court justice and former PC cabinet minister is sufficient enough proof and demands further evidence.

Hey, remember when we told you to keep Gerry Lincoln's name in mind?

Gerry Lincoln wasn't only an early member of the Heritage Front and the editor of the hate group's magazine. He was one of the three founding members, a fact that even our Free Dominion friends don't appear to contest in the timeline that was included on the site:

Droege, Bristow, Gerry Lincoln create the Heritage Front. Droege is leader, Lincoln is secretary and Bristow is in charge of security. Money to create the organization came from three founding members 

Given this, might we state that Gerry Lincoln might have a bit of knowledge about the organization he helped to found as well as the changes in leadership that might have occurred?

Our readers should all remember this screenshot (knitted together) of the article which can be found on Lemire's own Freedom-Site:


And here is the relevant text (click the link here or on the title to the article and you will find it on Lemire's own website):


March 9, 2001

After a six-year hiatus, the long-moribund Heritage Front [link redirects the reader to Stormfront; all links have been left as they were found on the original article] has been resurrected.

Seems someone rolled away the stone and released the "racist demon" back into Canada's complacent and apathetic society.

Anyone want to place bets on how long until the "Oye Vey-ing" begins again?

What's good for "the racists" is double good for the "human rights" industry. If the HF did not exist, it would be necessary for scribblers like failed Toronto Sun reporter Bill Dunphy and the Anti-Defamation crowd to invent it. 

This is more or less an open letter to the new leadership, specifically Marc Lemire, who seems to have assumed the role of head honcho and put his good name on the line. 

It's a thankless job, but I guess somebody has to do it. 

Lemire was little more than a munchkin when he joined the HF back in the early nineties. He quickly proved his dedication by filling in wherever and whenever needed. I recall numerous phone calls from Marc in those days; he was always looking for things to do. We couldn't keep him busy enough. A go-getter from Day One, when projects were scarce, Marc took the initiative, setting up Canada's first "racialist" BBS, which later evolved into Canada's premiere "white rights" website, the immensely popular Freedomsite. 

Marc has earned his stripes. 

As a "founding father" (ugh! — just like John A. MacDonald) of the original HF, can I offer a bit of unsolicited advice? Feel free to take it or leave it.

If the "human rights" creeps come-a-callin' I suggest you tell them to hit the road and go perform a sexual act upon themselves that's impossible unless they're double-jointed as well as two-faced. Anyone who has watched these clowns in action knows they're so brainwashed and blind, they couldn't find their ass with a flashlight. In short, F - 'em! Don't waste valuable resources defending yourself against jerk-offs — save your money until you get to a real court, where you might still have some hope of attaining justice. 

At this point, you don't have the money, the support or the infrastructure to sustain a ten-year battle in a pseudo-judicial Mickey Mouse charade of "human rights" show trials like the dynamic and charismatic Ernst Zündel. Mr. Zee has a thirty-year head start on you so it'll take time to polish your act and gain the trust and respect that he enjoys. You'll have to earn that by proving yourself worthy and equal to the task at hand. For now, save your shekels for the real thing.

If you're the leader, be a leader! 

Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked by people promoting their own wacky agendas. Initially, allies may be few and far between, but don't feel you have to align yourself with every crackpot organization that comes down the pike. Let the conspiracy buffs wallow in their own paranoia. If it's raining when you hoped for a sunny day, don't blame "the Jews" or anyone else for the inclement weather. Avoid the alcohol-besotted John Morgans of this world who will invariably try to derail you with their kooky theories. Remain focused — you've got REAL fish to fry.

Just as important; there will be younger, less-experienced people who come into your life, kids impatient for overnight change who may try to goad you into taking inappropriate action to achieve your goals. I don't have to tell you that you can't be pushing non-white immigrants in front of subway trains or throwing them into dumpsters because you disagree with this country's fucked-up immigration policies. People tried that in the past, and yet the hordes still keep coming, so that approach to the problem obviously wasn't all that successful. Not to mention, it's just not nice and it's highly illegal.

Somehow, no matter what cause you might espouse, be it purifying the environment, or cleaning up other types of pollution that have infested this once-great land, some schlep, anxious to accuse you of "anti-you-know-what-ism" is bound to ask you about the "Big H." Don't allow yourself to become mired in a non-productive argument over an issue that is now largely regarded as a "Bubeh Meise." It has nothing to do with you. In my opinion, an appropriate response might be a simple non sequitur like a quickly mumbled "douchebag-says-what?"

I've long admired your "Fuck-the-media!" attitude. Despite what the mainstream press might say, you know your cause is just and right. Just don't expect them to laud your efforts.

They won't.

Encourage your supporters to use the Internet, where at least for now, they can get an uncensored and unfiltered version of what you want to say.

For the most part, avoid the old farts who offer unsolicited counsel, telling you how they've "been in the movement for over forty years" and blah, blah blah! Look at what they've accomplished. Chances are, their best "movement" activity consists of little more than a successful bowel movement — and probably twenty years ago at that. Many of them are still "full of it." 

You're embarked upon a difficult, perhaps dangerous undertaking. Surround yourself with capable and talented people. Learn to delegate responsibility. The task at had is too great for any one person to handle by himself. 

Learn from the mistakes of the past. Study what worked and what was totally unsuccessful and from there, plot your own course.

And finally, above all, have fun with it!

Best regards,
----->Gerry Lincoln

(NOTE: We would also remind our readers that Marc and Lincoln both produced the Droege Memorial CD after Droege was murdered in 2005, four years after the above article was published on Freedom-Site).

We've posted this screenshot (in pieces) numerous times on this blog (like here and here) so it isn't unfamiliar to our readers. It seems funny that Maikeru, in his frequent examinations of this blog, has failed to notice this.

Well, it would appear that he has noticed it but simply decided to ignore the relevant information, as evidenced by this comment when he posted the text of the post we published, but decided not to address the content of Lincoln's article found on Freedom-Site:

Please note that the bulk of commentary at ARC is reliant on snide reaction to other sites.
Shorn of screenshots from elsewhere, and suppositions on what other folks must think, but this time also including a newspaper article, is the nut of the nutters at ARC

We find it interesting that, in his demand for poof to confirm Justice Blais' determination that Marc Lemire was the last leader of the Heritage Front, that Maikeru would presumably decide to ignore an article written by a founder of the Heritage Front, published on Marc Lemire's Freedom-Site, which congratulates Marc Lemire for assuming the leadership of the group after years of having, "earned his stripes" and then goes on to offer Lemire advice about how best to lead the organization.

We would also be interested in seeing if Maikeru will deal with this now.

We won't be holding our collective breaths.

And it wouldn't be a proper Free Dominion post without Ed Kennedy making veiled threats:

bcl has made many enemies, and feels impervious to retribution, either legal or illegal. He has done so by out of context libelling of people, and as such, demonstrates he is unaware of the same warnign my late Uncle Don gave me many years ago, that there are lots of whackos out there, and if you are going to be an activist, then you had better first be aware that you could be, and will probably be putting your well being and probably oyur very life in danger. Uncle Don was an OPP detachment commander in the Thunder Bay area.

Right. And we're the nutters.

I don't mean to seem critical, but you keep going on about this "M" character as if he was person who was playing with a full deck. I'm sorry but neither this anonymous poster or their comments are worth all the attention and consideration you are giving them. Suffice to say that this Free Dominion blog attracts a number of fulminating and usually boring malcontents....that's all.

All jokes aside I am constantly impressed at the effort you people go to to make sure the truth is out. Denial seems to be the MO of most Canadian racists, and being so far on the fringe they might get away with it were it not for concerned citizens such as yourselves.

No, we agree with you Harry. Commenting on Maikeru's criticism was merely a means to an end. He himself really isn't much of a concern to us.
