Infighting Amongst Canadian Islamophobes: Part 4

The previous post entitled, "Infighting Amongst Canadian Islamophobes: Part 3" was going to be the last in the series for a while as there were other articles I've been working on, but then I was given a gift by a reader that sort of screamed for a fourth entry.

In a few cities today, at least Toronto and Calgary, there were anti-Muslim rallies. The event in Calgary had only between 10 and 15 individuals show up. In Toronto, though the organizers had hoped for at least 200 and one of them (Ronny Cameron) suggested 100 had shown up, Arthur Smitherman contradicted this number:

Today the anti-Muslim protesters seemed to be outnumbered by a significant margin by anti-fascists, were kept bottled up in one area, and were unable to move.... so it was labeled a total triumph by the anti-Muslim side.

Well, there was certainly a punch. Keep reading. ;)
Those who did show up include the usual suspects; Soldiers of Odin (including one who's links to neo-Nazis I've mentioned already with what looks to be visible white supremacist tattoos), the Jewish Defence League, Smitherman, Eric Brazau, Sandra Soloman, Kevin Johnston (who is classy as f), and a few other familiar dickheads:

Also joining this time were members of the III%ers, the quasi-militia movement that began in the United States because a black dude was elected president to fight against what they regard as government tyranny.

They looked.... er.... intimidating? I guess?

I mean, as far as Tron cosplay goes I suppose.

Notably absent was Ron Banerjee with Eric Brazau being the only representative of Rise Canada present. Perhaps this is because of the falling out that occurred between Soloman and Banerjee, whatever the reasons it will be quite apparent why the main organizer of this event will not be welcoming Brazau back any time soon:

Meet dude-bro Ronny Cameron. There's a fair about about this guy that can be found on this site, but suffice it to say for now that he was the key organizer of this particular event.

Now, we aren't entirely sure what is happening here. Smitherman introduces Brazau as the next speaker and Cameron almost immediately tries to take the mic from Brazau. One thing led to another and, well....

I guess the title of this article is a bit misleading. This isn't so much "infighting" as it is "fighting" full stop.

By the way, isn't Brazau currently out on bail?
