16×9 interviews Krysia Collyer (Producer of 16×9) about behind the scenes interview for the Brotherhood of Hate and Daniel Gallant.
In addition to the conspiracy oriented backbone of the white supremacist worldview there is another likewise problematic misconception. This is the notion of racial purity and the links biology has to culture. Eugenics based science/theory, which is archaic in its development, and the belief that biological determinism is one of the crux of white supremacist idealism speaks to the lens of these pseudo-intellectual lenses. We as a collective society now understand that race and biology do not determine socialization. Socio-cultural dynamics which include intelligence, deviance and criminality are referenced throughout much of the right-wing doctrine as being linked directly to physiology and biology. This biologically determined belief structure is not only archaic, but de-bunked as a science. As indicated by UNBC professor and scholar Michelle Bouchard race is a social construct and what people typically refer to as ‘race’ does not actually exist genetically in a solidified and quantitative manner.
Loose connections are the root of white supremacist doctrine and propaganda. Extremists from the right wing agenda, like Arthur Topham, regurgitate distasteful, hurtful and violent messages, which are rooted in half-baked pseudo-intellectualism. These individuals are not tucked away into the corners of society and hidden away. They work in your schools, courtrooms, universities and construction sites. It is my goal to include, in this blog, insight into who some of these people are; and what they are up to. It is my hope to inform those from the extreme-far-right, that there is a way out of the misconceptions of their indoctrination; all while promoting compassion and solidarity amongst our collective human experience in order to decrease the amount of abuse and oppression that occurs in our country, our cities, our streets, our institutions, our homes and most importantly in our minds.
There is a long history of right wing doctrine that is connected to theses legalese claims, from Doug Christie and the people that he is associated with; as well as the fanatical white supremacist clients he often provides legal council and representation too. He has a long history of representing people charged with hate crimes and who are members of, and affiliated with, right-wing-hate groups. Christie is closely affiliated with the pseudo-rights-group, Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFÉ), which is connected to and run by well known white supremacists. These individuals are linked through social media and real life relationships to other white supremacists, hate groups, and extremist/terrorist organizations and/or movements.
White supremacist groups have a strong hold in Canada and utilize freedom of expression as a shield against prosecution for hate crimes and human rights charges. Groups such as Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFÉ), which is run by Paul Fromm who encourages violent extremist groups and supports their cause. Although Fromm will deny that he is a white supremacist when facing legal battles, my experience proves to me alone that he is an utter liar.
Paul Fromm often works along with Canadian lawyer Doug Christie who utilizes the human rights as a defensive shield for violent extremists who face charges under Canadian hate law. Both Christie and Fromm supported Ernst Zundel’s high profile case while attempting to build a defense case, by perverting Canadian rights law in Canada. Christie has violated the Law Society of BC’s regulation and fined for professional misconduct in the past and paid violation fees and restitution of more than $20,000.
Now Arthur Topham is said to be accessing Paul Fromm and Doug Christie to defend him against recent criminal hate crime charges that stem from his online news reports. The Radical Press offers anti-Semitic editorials under the guise of providing the public with alternative news sources from the right-wing-agenda. From posting mainstream news reports of systemic issues to writing pro-Nazi propaganda, this online news source has very obvious intentions that support and incite hate speech.
The ‘Zionist’ conspiracy theories utilized by violent extremist groups link communism, world (high) economics, media control, political domination to the half-baked explanations of how and why the Jewish ‘Zionists’ allegedly are controlling the world and seeking to exterminate the apparent ‘white-race’. As described by white supremacist activist/sympathizer Doug Christie, opposition to Zionism should not be illegal, this legal position is definitively in support of the right-wing agenda. The background of this statement does not inform that the half-baked theory of Zionist conspiracy for world domination also incorporates the promotion of genocide, atrocity and harm to those who are implicated in the ‘Zionist conspiracy’; which includes ‘race-mixers’, ‘race-traitors’ and most citizens.
From the 1930s to the 1980s the Social Credit party thrived in Canada. The party had a history of being openly anti-Semitic which was rationalized through half-baked conspiracy propaganda theories that suggested there is a worldwide economic regime led by ‘Zionists’. However, after a split within the Social Credit party the anti-Semitic position was curbed and members who promoted hateful rhetoric were shunned.One of the individuals who was ejected from the party was Doug Collins, a former journalist for several Canadian newspapers and the CBC up to the 1980s. Collins denounced Schindler’s list as the ‘swindler’s list’ propaganda.
One of the central literary pieces that surfaces within anti-Semitist circles is The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. This text is often utilized by a variety of anti-Semitic groups in order to establish claims that Zionists are Jewish supremacists who are out to control and harm other non-Jewish groups. The users of this book include Islamic and white supremacist groups, as well as many other fanatical groups that have religious and/or political ideological positions. This book is said to have first surfaced in Russia in the early 1900s. Nazi Germany referenced this book as a true text; as do many violent extremist groups today. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is continuously referred to by extremists to solidify their hate mongering against Jewish religion while targeting Jewish people for attack.
Social Credit activist James Keegstra, a high school teacher, and past mayor in Eckville, Alberta, was stripped of his teaching certificate and convicted under Canadian criminal law for promoting hate. He was teaching his social studies class that the Holocaust was a fraud. Keegstra’s teachings are shared by others who promote that the mainstream reports of the Holocaust are not historically correct; which of course is a ridiculous and obnoxious claim. These fictional accounts of revisionism include the likes of Ernst Zundel, who spent a total of seven years in prison in three separate countries for his commitment to public Holocaust denial.
Zundel’s rhetoric is shared by right-wing-extremist-groups such as the group formerly known as The World Church of The Creator (W.C.O.T.C.), now called the Creativity Movement. The founder of the W.C.O.T.C. Ben Klassen, originally from Saskatchewan, developed a rationalization which allegedly ‘proved’ that the Holocaust did not happen the way history dictates. It is referred to as the Holo-Hoax. The very groups that teach and promote these deceptive allegations typically harbor racist ideologies, believe in archaic biological deterministic science, eugenics based perspectives and promote violent extremism, whether direct or indirect in method. The W.C.O.T.C. has been linked and affiliated with promotion of hate, assaults, murders, terrorist cells, and suicidal ideation. Promoting suicide, murder and genocide in Canada is a crime, period. The headquarters for this church was later established in the U.S.A. The latest leader a former lawyer in Illinois is now in prison.
