Well, looks like Paulie has gotten himself in a little trouble after the national press caught wind of ARC's article published yesterday discussing his promotion of the Christchurch murderer:
Police investigating after Canadian far-right website reposts New Zealand terrorist’s manifesto, calling it "cogent." https://t.co/HM2NnnHb3q— Stewart Bell (@StewGlobal) March 18, 2019
“The Hamilton Police Service Hate Crime Unit is aware of the recent social media posting by Mr. Fromm,” Const. Jerome Stewart, a media relations officer, said Monday.
“We are currently investigating in order to determine if a criminal offence has occurred.”
Canadian law prohibits the wilful promotion of hatred against identifiable groups. A conviction carries a possible two-year sentence.....Richard Warman, an Ottawa lawyer who has long battled hate propaganda, told Global News he contacted police after the manifesto reappeared on a website linked to Fromm, a Hamilton resident.
“I believe that posting the manifesto would be criminal on its own and that posting and endorsing the manifesto in the way Paul Fromm has done is absolutely criminal in my mind and I’ve reported it to the Hamilton Police Service,” said Warman, a board member at the Canadian Anti-Hate Network.I don't know, but aside from the legal implications, Paulie might just have excluded himself from a few more countries.
But he isn't the only one who may be in legal hot water:
Kevin "No Show" Goudreau is planning a rally on March 21, though given his track record of showing up to his own rallies, I remain somewhat dubious;
- Goudreau's Peterborough Rally Already Unintentionally Hilarious
- September 30 Anti-Government//White Supremacist Rallies
- Who Was The Lone Nazi to Show At Kevin Goudreau's Peterborough Rally? ARC Has His Name
However, even if he intends on actually showing up, he may be unable to do so:
Peterborough Police will be investigating threats towards us, anti-racists and media outlets following Kevin Goudreau's incitement for us to be murdered. https://t.co/RdH86GlRTq— Canadian Anti-Hate Network (@antihateca) March 19, 2019
Like other racists, the death of innocent people really seems to excite Goudreau because he is a terrible human being. He too has been justifying the murders and promoting the document posted online by the Christchurch murderer prior to his crimes:

money for the Christchurch victims' families, please click here.
But as if this wasn't enough, "No Show" has been a bit frisky today (I assume he started drinking by 11:00 am) and decided to post some overt threats directed towards anti-fascists, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, government agencies, the media, and finally your's truly:
He also posted this one on Twitter:
Not surprisingly he removed the posts after about 5 hours, but not before a lot of people saw them:
neo-nazi in Peterborough ON, Kevin Goudreau, is telling others to violently target anti-fascists, "any organization that has the words Anti-racist in it", & people at @CBCNews, @vicecanada, @ARCCollective, @antihateca. he's also planning a white pride rally in #Ptbo this week. pic.twitter.com/iwT6gy3OiA— Bob Nesta Makhno mistake ☠🏴 (@GilletteMachNo1) March 19, 2019
Peterborough neo-Nazi Kevin Goudreau is inciting violence towards us, anti-racists and media outlets in the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack. He calls for "Lone Wolves" to shoot us. We are filing a criminal complaint for incitement and counselling murder. 1/ pic.twitter.com/Uw4c7L5Hvi— Canadian Anti-Hate Network (@antihateca) March 19, 2019
He also shared a neo-Nazi image from the Christchurch manifesto and called for a rally in #Peterborough on the 21st. However, Goudreau has scheduled and no-showed for his own rallies previously. We have no indications that he has a significant enough following to hold an event 2/— Canadian Anti-Hate Network (@antihateca) March 19, 2019
Only one person showed to his last Peterborough rally, who says he wants to use a pipe bomb on anti-racists. Goudreau didn't even show. https://t.co/6ULBdrS7tK h/t @arccollective ty @GilletteMachNo1 3/3 @PtboPolice— Canadian Anti-Hate Network (@antihateca) March 19, 2019
There are a lot of people who are shocked by the overt call by Goudreau to assassinate the people and groups lists, but honestly this is another case of Goudreau being Goudreau as this small selection of posts of his over the years indicates:
|FYI, Patricia was at one time Paul Fromm's mistress. She is |
pictured with him wearing a bikini six sized too small and a
swastika pendant; Paulie is wearing only leather, zip-up briefs.
If you've ever seen the photo, you can never unsee it.
Not that any of this means that we shouldn't treat this seriously. Goudreau has a lengthy criminal record for assault and is certainly capable of real harm with the right amount of liquid courage (because he is ultimately a small, cowardly, man who targets people he thinks are smaller and weaker.... and that is a rather short list). And with a weapon in his hands, a coward is even more dangerous.
So, I suspect that Goudreau might also regret his rather poor decision today.
Again, what do they say about birds of a feather?
