Anti-LGTBQ and Islamophobic Extremist Chris Vanderweide is REALLY Good at Alienating People

I know there's a tendency for ARC to highlight the rampant dysfunction and infighting of the far-right groups we cover on the blog (as our friends with Yellow Vests Canada Exposed did in our last article) and as a result we've been accused of being a bit of a gossip rag.

And to that I answer gleefully, guilty as charged!

This past weekend Chris Vanderweide (who has been is facing charges stemming from assaults he committed at a Pride event in Hamilton in June) "organized" what he referred to as an anti-bullying protests in Kitchener in which he called people who have historically been oppressed, criminalized, assaulted, and murdered bullies because they and allies are demanding equal rights and standing up to the actual bullies:

The person is waving a flag. Vanderweide thinks that constitutes bullying, but not protesting a Pride event, shouting at the participants that they are deviants who are going to Hell, and then assaulting them.

A bit of projection methinks?

And he considered his rally to have been a huge success!


Hmmm, members of ID Canada and the Canadian Nationalist Party, eh?

Okay, a few more than this showed up, but not really many more. Among those who might be reasonably considered to have no-showed was Vanderweide himself. Reports are he showed up late, shook a few hands and took some pictures, and then left after only a few minutes.

You see, with all the far-right "media" attention....

.... Vanderweide has become much more concerned with self-promotion.

By this past weekend for example, Chris Vanderweide has already had his "more popular than Jesus" moment when all he has done is assault people with a helmet whereas at least John Lennon had already written "Ticket to Ride", "Yesterday", and "Can't Buy Me Love" by that point in his career:

Holy raging ego Batman!

But in this post we also see some of the cracks in his reputation that Vanderweide is himself helping to open up by his own arrogance; an attitude of being bigger than the movement he is a part of, dismissing of other groups and individuals as insufficient vehicles for someone as important as himself, and his own narcissism which is a word that I sincerely doubt he can pronounce much less understand but which accurately describe a man who hasn't accomplished much in his life but who now feels entitled to adulation.

Among the early critics was one Anne Morrison who leads the Wolves of Odin, one of the offshoots of the Soldiers of Odin because these people are particularly original or creative thinkers:

Ah, the sharing of dirty laundry part of the show!

That's my favorite part!

The comments were most enlightening in that they expand on the characters, both intentionally an unintentionally, of everyone involved in this sordid affair:

Provincial and federal time in prison for assault and conspiracy to commit murder.

And yet these "patriots" unironically accuse counter-protesters of being dangerous criminals.

More projection.

Morrison finishes with reference to Vanderweide's appearance with Kevin "Poodle" Johonstone:

And that is where it ended.... except that Vanderweide decided it hadn't ended and that he had to get in the last word:

You want screen shots of private messages airing dirty laundry? Vanderweide sees Morisson's three and raises 53:

I'm just going to post all of the screen shots Vanderweide uploaded to Facebook before I continue posting the comments that were left by others on his profile, but to summarize:
  1. These people are weird as hell.
  2. Despite Vanderweide's claims he exposes the Nouns of Odin, no one looks good in these exchanges.
This is going to take a while. Feel free to get a drink, a snack, and maybe use the bathroom before you get started:

Drama With Pat & Jay

Anyone who pays any amount of attention to the far-right knows that it is rife with infighting and drama. The Yellow Vests Canada movement is no exception to this rule.

It seems that Pat King is on the outs with Jay Riedel, Kenny Winsor, his ex-girlfriend Christy, and basically half of the movement.

While he's prone to melodramatic live feeds where he yells and cries, this was apparently a whole new level. We were unable to snag a copy of it before it was deleted (mid-broadcast) but those who saw it have marveled at it's ridiculousness.

During this feed, King reportedly went off on his ex-bff Jay Riedel, leader of the Estevan SK Yellow Vests, resulting in in Riedel leaving the page:

I wonder what they did with their Five Finger Death Punch themed friendship bracelets. Maybe they can auction them off to raise money "for the cause."

This also caused division within their followers:

Apparently, King accused Christy of being a stalker and "antifa," so naturally she had to defend herself, because she's a good person who isn't racist.




Christy also went live on Facebook to defend her honour. I've included some highlights:

 The one where King tries to pick up his girlfriend's sister's friend on Tinder

The one where King uses his girlfriend's biracial children for cred

The one where  King lies about how he lost his leg

The one where King lies some more 

The one where King joins in 

Here is the full video.

The responses to the video show a number of people fed up with King's grifting, including Kenny Winsor of NL Media, and Carl-Edward Fleury

As an aside, if you are trying to brand yourself "not racist," then Fleury is the last person you want to hang around.   

 King showed up in the comments:

There were allegations of all kinds, including stealing money and lying about tax returns:

How he lost his leg: 

And the hilarious declaration that he no longer has control of his own Facebook page, Rollin with Pat & Jay.

In any event, if Christy ever does want to be antifa, and give us intel on King she says she has, and really give it to him good, she can get in touch with us.

UPDATE: It turns out that Kenny Winsor was able to save King's video prior to it being deleted, and he provided a clip to Christy Marie. There's also rumours that Pat King's real name is not Pat King.

UPDATE #2:  Kenny Winsor, of NL Media and previously of Rollin With Pat & Jay has released a second clip of the Pat King Meltdown live feed. In this clip, King is speaking with Connie Whittaker, who lambasts King for his grifting and says every time he cries "women open up their wallets."


Kenny is antifa now.

Paul Fromm with Maxime Bernier: Pleased With PPC Immigration Platform

So rather than engaging in the usual long-winded lead up I engage in, let's just get to the point on this one:

Yep, white supremacist Paul Fromm, seen here with Max Bernier happily patting him on the back, is pleased with the PPC platform regarding immigration.

Though he's not as happy that a former PPC candidate was removed for merely posting the link to a white supremacist group with ties to terrorism:

Fromm has been a fixture on the far right in Canada since the late 1960s and has associated with such groups as the Heritage Front, Volksfront, the KKK, American Front, and the recently illegal terrorist group Blood & Honour/Combat 18 (among others):

Bernier himself has seemingly decided to throw his lot in with extremists including the Northern Guard:

Proud Boys:

ID Canada (formerly Generation Identity Canada):

The Yellow Vesters:

And an assortment of other alt-right and racist figures:
