Video from the BC Humanist Association

We were sent a link to the following video on YouTube. It is a presentation from August 17, 2012 by Edwin Hodge concerning white supremacy in the digital age.

Overall, this was a very well done presentation. Any issues we have are relatively minor:

  • "88" does not refer to Hitler's birthday, but is the numerical symbol for "Heil Hitler."
  • The photo of the 2011 police raid is not of the Calgary-based Blood & Honour faction, but the Hammerskin-aligned faction in British Columbia.
  • The hategroup, "BC WHITE PRIDE" disappeared in large part because of the work of the Center for Research-Action on Race Relations.
Overall though, the presentation was pretty solid and reinforces our message that we do need to be concerned about white supremacists because of the violence much of the membership engages in.

You guys notice that Faramir at FD accused the RCMP of murdering Jeff Hughes?
