VERY Late Update on Pegida Go Fund Me Effort

So remember when I wrote that ARC would be updating regarding Pegida Canada's effort to raise money on Go Fund Me to pay for the damages as a result of a successful defamation suit against the leader and founder of the hate group?



Well I have a very good reason for not doing it earlier!

I forgot.

Yeah, it happens.

In any case as a review Pegida Canada was hit with a $10,000 penalty after losing a defamation suit resulting from an earlier rally and the statements subsequently posted to social media. Some reports suggested it was $11,000, though this might have been incorrect or it also took into account other expenses. Not long after they set up a Go Fund Me account to try to pay for the judgement. Among those attempting to help Pegida Canada raise the money was Mary Forrest who has been profiled hear before.... usually foul mouthed, possibly drunk (though she does also claim to have a traumatic brain injury), and joking about killing their political opposition. In a 20+ minute video (posted not long after the campaign began, Forrest appears to be trying to bully and guilt people into supporting the Go Fund Me campaign. Be forewarned that I've edited for length and have included my usual editorial snark:


She eventually gets to the crux of the issue. In short, and to sum up her brilliant legal analysis, Jenny Hill shouldn't have been sued because the social media post wasn't THAT defamatory:


However, the efforts of Hill, Forrest, and others have been for naught. ARC and others let Go Fund Me know that a hate group (and yes, they are a hate group) was attempting to raise money on their platform and.... well....


With this in mind, Pegida is planning on another march on May 4. Perhaps the fine people of Toronto might like to turn out in the same, or greater, numbers that they did on March 23?:

Holy Dinah! This is an epic rant. She sure loves her Jesus, but I think she may be confused about some of the guiding principals of Christianity.

Does she have a job? Do any of these people have jobs? I am an angry person, and there are enough people in world that I meet on a day to day basis without coming up with my own personal Phantom Menace.

Also the way these people throw around socialist, communist, Marxist is sooooooooo maddening. Unions are part of this evil plot?
