Red Deer Anti-Muslim Protest Update: A Look At Two Parents

If you haven't read the first article on the story concerning the Islamophobic protest that took place today outside a Red Deer high school, we invite our readers to first click on this link.

Also, for people who claim not to be racist, the Islamophobe protesters' supporters don't seem to like brown folk at their rallies:

But I digress....

Upon watching one of De Luca's videos in which he and others question school officials, I couldn't help noticing one figure (the original video has been edited, shortening it to the section readers should pay attention to):


Yes Joey, let's see how that looks on the news hour.

Since Ms. Lyle has provided her name to the media, she is now a public figure and as such her claims warrant some scrutiny.

Not too long after the protest, WCAI and CCC members started to comment on the media coverage:

There are three figures of interest here, including an old friend:

You all remember Thomas Trenerry right? Formerly a member of the Calgary-based Aryan Guard and later Blood & Honour?

However these two posts are perhaps more interesting for reasons that I hope will soon become apparent:

The readers may have noticed in the last article that I mentioned while I and others don't believe there is a mass of parents who fear their sons and daughters are being subjected to assaults and sexual abuse by Syrian students, we do know that WCAI and CCC have been in contact with at least one parent:

Ron Briggs is someone associated with the III% movement. He suggests that "Chad" is the father of one of the boys involved and was unjustly punished for trying to be a peacemaker while the "Syrian instigators" got off with no punishment.

Maybe, but as someone who was involved in the Alberta school system as recently as six years ago, I know how hard it is for a student to receive a five day school suspension for a first offense. That said, if the offense is serious enough, then perhaps five days could be warranted?

Both Briggs and Dean provided their direct messages with Chad in an effort to coordinate the protest:

I was able to find Chad Lyle on Facebook and while he is now using his own photo for his profile picture, he had been using this one as early as this weekend:

WCAI, Canadian Combat Coalition, Soldiers of Odin, and Others Harass Staff and Students At Red Deer High School

Yesterday I alluded to an event being planned by the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI) and others that would not be discussed until after the event took place. I and others in the know wanted to be sure to (a) make certain the school and the police were aware of the plans and (b) we didn't give them any undue attention.

Yes, I wrote school.

Fight at Lindsay Thurber leads to student suspensions

Yeah, a fight took place at a high school last week, much like fights have been happening at Canadian high schools for decades. Had this been a regular fight, our friends with the WCAI wouldn't have given it a second thought I'm sure. However, one fact stood out which resulted in a school yard spat being turned into an act of potential terrorism against "Canadian" kids:
School officials acknowledge that some of the students involved in the altercation were Syrian, but are refuting social media comments claiming the discipline for those students was not the same as for others.
Yeah, by this point you all know what is coming:

De Luca and his confederates planned a protest for today at Lindsay Thurber High School in Red Deer, Alberta based on a claim that Syrian students were beating up Canadian kids and were not being punished because those Syrian students were, "acting within their faith" and that they needed to be tolerated. A rational person would question this claim, particularly when the school stated that all involved were punished.

But then we aren't talking about rational people here:


Honestly though, who should parents at this high school be more concerned about? The immigrant kids or a man who has been convicted of drug trafficking and assault causing bodily harm?

Some of the comments left while De Luca conducted his live video are as follows:

WCAI Planning June 24 Rally; Hilarity Inevitable

The Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI Canada) in concert with the Canadian Combat Coalition (again, really?) is planning three events in the coming few weeks. The first is one that will not be discussed until after it takes place; I believe ARC's readers will understand why I made this decision when it is reported on. The second is the June 3 event that was to take place in Edmonton to mirror the "A Million Canadian Deplorables March Against Trudeau" in Ottawa, however the shit storm (see here and here) that resulted has caused Joey De Luca and Ryan "Toot" Dean to plan their own event in Calgary.

But the third event on June 24....

Oh baby!

It will be a MASSIVE rally on June 24! Hundreds, if not thousands, if not HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS will attend!

With live bands!

Internationally "known" guest speakers!

A pig roast!

Balloon animals and cotton candy!

Well, maybe not that last part, but given the hyperbole that Joey De Luca has engaged in, who knows?

One has to give Joey credit for his ambition I suppose.

Still, even before the infighting really took off, there were some signs that there might be trouble in paradise:

Toronto Proud Boy Profile: Ron Stubbings

Reprinted with permission from the original author.

By now some people are familiar with the wannabe frat boy right wing cult called the Proud Boys. Their schtick is a constructed hyper -“masculinity” mixed in with racism, misogyny,homophobia and stale internet memes. They have started to show up at demos and have thrown fists when they can get away with it. And some people have felt that they have been able to get away with a lot. There is a concern out there that the police have protected the Proud Boy bigots from harm while turning a blind eye to their violent actions and provocations.

Let’s meet one of them. Ron Stubbings. (Ron Banerjee, Ronny Cameron, now Ron Stubbings...why are they always called Ron?) In his late 40’s Ron can hardly be labelled as a boy in chronological terms. It would be unfair to even say he had the mentality of a typical boy as most boys do not harbor such vile hatred.


Ron wanted to be an Anglican priest and studied theology at UofT, then he wanted to be a comedian. He now seems to have decided to take a new career path as a full time hater.

Here is a bio from his comedian days:

and another one that gives a bit more info:

Ron is now all about the Proud Boys. Here is an editorial he wrote for their magazine:

The editorial is a strange piece about the merits of fighting (I think, it is badly written) and he name drops his brother “the Deputy Chief of Police for the Toronto Police Service.”

Infighting Amongst Canadian Islamophobes: Part 7 - Meanwhile in Toronto....

As the founder, lead writer, and currently sole member of ARC, I often find it funny that the people who are the quickest to diminish the reach and influence (such as it is) of the blog are among ARC's most dedicated readers. Case in point, the article posted on May 16 detailing the criminal records of the founder of the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (Joey De Luca) and his Saskatchewan representative (Christopher Hayes) resulted in an almost immediate response from De Luca:

"They are too well organized to be unpaid grass roots."

First, I don't think Peter Straw understands what grass roots means.

Second, if I was being paid, would I be using Blogger as a platform?

Third, aren't you the same people who say that if a Muslim (refugee, immigrant, or Canadian-born) commits any sort of crime, that person and their entire extended family should be deported to.... somewhere?

Finally, he is overestimating my connections. Really dude, I'm just someone with a laptop, Internet access, and too much time on my hands.

Still, it is fun being thought of as a member of some sort of nefarious cabal. Now if only George Soros would cut me one of those checks I've been hearing about.

But more than the revelation that much of the WCAI leadership ARC is aware of are violent criminals, De Luca seems to be most upset with the ongoing series detailing infighting amongst anti-Muslim groups in Canada.

It would appear that Joey De Luca has declared the infighting to be over and that from this point on there would be a united front against the government, Muslims, anti-fascists, liberals, immigrants in general, wearing white after Labor Day, mimes (I could actually get behind that initiative), basic literacy, and tartar build-up.

Hopefully everyone got the memo.

What Was Learned From Islamophobe Rally in Ottawa on May 6

The following is the second article submitted by an Ottawa area-based reader and activist who has been researching the Soldiers of Odin and associated individuals and groups. The first article focused on white supremacists within the Ottawa-Gatineau SoO). This article is focuses on what was learned from the May 6 Islamophobe protest that occurred on Parliament Hill, as well as perhaps providing insight into the organizational skills of those planning the June 3 protest also scheduled (maybe) to take place on Parliament Hill.

On May 6th, local Islamophobes showed up to another Facebook event called by the CCCC. This time, they were planning to walk from the human rights memorial to Parliament and hold their rally there, where they had planned to have a safe space backed by the RCMP and a fenced perimeter. The anti-fascists showed up earlier to the memorial, so that the Islamophobes rallied somewhere and made their way to Parliament Hill, where seven Soldiers of Odin were waiting to escort them. In the meantime, four members of the all-new Ottawa Proud Boys chapter, which looks like it's made up partly of SoO rejects, went to the memorial seemingly to distract the anti-fascists, who eventually did make it to Parliament Hill to face down the Islamophobes.

The anti-fascists being the only group in possession of a megaphone, they easily disrupted the speech component of the rally; it might not even have been necessary however, since this time both the PBs and the SoOs were busy hurling insults, rape threats and whatnot to the anti-fascists, targeting women in particular.

It's unclear what they were trying to achieve with this rally this time, other than try to intimidate local anti-fascist forces. Some of the SoOs even tried to jump antifascists on their way out of Parliament Hill.

Criminality Within WCAI's Leadership

The fallout from WCAI's Joey De Luca and his dispute with the Alberta Citizens Coalition (ACC) over the planned Edmonton protest at the legislature and subsequent decision to hold his own event in Calgary while at the same time sabotage the event in Edmonton continues today:

If there's one thing we've come to learn about Joey though, it is just how humble he is:

De Luca also mentions the June 24 rally he's planning. I'll
have more on that in a future article.

But aside from Joey trying to compare penis size with other Islamophobic groups that have sprung up that are so far beneath his level of importance that he shouldn't even have to bother to speak to them unless they are at the minimum the head of a national organization (yeah, yeah, it's a run on sentence), the dispute has resulted in ARC learning something about Joey:

"Assault charge?"

Thank you Joey. I genuinely appreciate your inept efforts to make my job so much easier.

First, De Luca isn't a Calgarian by birth. Born in 1983, he is originally from British Columbia which is confirmed by his two Facebook profiles:

Knowing this, that his birth name is Giuseppe, and that it is very easy to find criminal records from British Columbia online, I took a little stroll along the Interweb and....
