Pictured here is Brian Ruhe, friend and supporter of Paul Fromm, Holocaust denier, antisemite, and a quite literal Hitler worshiper:
ARC has of course profiled Ruhe a few times on the blog already:

But then the violent Islamophobic rhetoric isn't confined to the reactionary Yellow Vesters. As the sentencing for the 2017 Quebec City mosque murderer is imminent, members and supporters of the Canadian Combat Coalition have some things to say.... all of which are absolutely disgusting:
With all this in mind and considering the numerous threats made by reactionary Yellow Vesters, I'm just going to leave this here to do with as you please:
Here is a list of hotels for the #YellowVestsCanada convoy to Ottawa. Please contact the hotels and mention that they are giving group rates to a hate group. @ARCCollective @YYCantiracist

Back in Alberta, a mosque received a threatening note demanding Muslims leave the province:
We are alarmed to find that another mosque in #yeg has been targeted by what appears to be the work of the clann.@jkenney should know that this is what antisemitism looked like ~100 years ago when antisemitic literature had been floating around freely. It didn't end well. https://t.co/QpXwjZNdfW— Calgary Anti-Racist Action (@YYCantiracist) February 6, 2019
It appears that the note comes from the Clann of which Ryan Dean and Tyson Hunt are members. The note, as well as the subsequent denial by Dean on the Clann Twitter account, seems to be another example of Dean trying to create his own false flag straw man in an effort to blame others:Read more »

It is also hard to believe that they were the open-minded fellas they claimed to have been who simply wanted to discuss a holy book when one of the photos they proudly posted included this one....
.... as well as posting images such as this on your Twitter account three days later....
.... and posting a map of Edmonton-area mosques three days prior to the visit....
.... and finally a call to recruit "surveillance units and "gray men" to support the cause:
Ryan Dean really wants to play at being a soldier, though he would
never pass the physical or any of the psychological tests.
The video that Tyson Hunt posted of the encounter outside Al Rashid Mosque was rather interesting. Both Hunt and Dean appear to believe that the video made them look reasonable and the two men speaking to them appear like fanatics:
Alternate title for screen shot: "Muslim Wearing Pants Is Scary"
In fact, the video posted by Hunt indicates a spectacular amount of patience on the part of the two men who spoke to Hunt and Dean:
Of course, Ryan Dean (who operates the Clann Twitter account) considers that they are the REAL victims because they are white.... all the while accusing the people they harassed at Al Rashid Mosque of playing the victim card:
And of course, they are also angry at the media for reporting on the story in a way that didn't make them appear as if they were the heroes of the story:

Yellow Jackets Canada Facebook Group Founder/Administrator Marc "Tyler" Malenfant: A Lying Liar Who Lies
The Yellow Vests Canada Facebook page lists a “Tyler Malenfant” as its administrator. The same Facebook profile was used to post comments on an Al Jazeera news article about a Jewish conspiracy to “destroy” Christianity and replace North America’s white majority through a concerted effort of mass migration. When asked about his comments on the news article, the user of the profile deleted the comments and denied they ever existed. The user said the screenshots StarMetro took were fake.This claim that the screenshots were "fake" or "fraudulent" were also made to CANADALAND which published an article this past Monday:
Malenfant has a history of racist, anti-Semitic, and bigoted comments online, as painstakingly documented by Anti-Racist Canada, a long-running project tracking the country’s far right. Asked by CANADALAND about these statements, Malenfant claims that Anti-Racist Canada’s screenshots are “fake” and “a fabrication”; he previously said the same thing to StarMetro Edmonton about screenshots they themselves took.Of course as CANADALAND noted, ARC had documented all of this three years prior to the existance of the Yellow Vests movement, the reactionary Canadian co-opting of the movement, and Malenfant's involvement in said co-opted movement. In other words, I had to know three years in advance that Marc "Tyler" Malenfant would be a player in a future far-right protest movement and preemptively fake screenshots to discredit him in the future. Not only me, but one other blogger as well.
I mean, I'm good, but I'm not fucking Nostradamus.
Malenfant, just off a forced Facebook vacation, posted the following missive denouncing the claims made against him:
While I can't say anything about this....
.... I sure as hell have more to say about this:
Yeah.... let's explore that, shall we?
Now Malenfant has deleted all of the screen shots from the Al-Jazeera article (and it looks like "Vice" removed all of the comments) though one can still see replies to Malenfant. That said I did take screen shots of all of them which can be found in the article from 2015. This one was among them:
Dmitri Balitsky was also a subject in that 2015 article. Based on Malenfant's invitation to participate in the discussion it is clear that he had a friendly relationship with Balitsky as well which we will be exploring. In the meantime it might be instructive to reacquaint readers with Balitsky.
