Anti racists horrified by disturbing death threat stunt by Alt Right group Generation Identity today at Tower of London Alt Right group Generation Identity (GI) have today enacted a mock execution of Stand Up To Racism activists, using the anti racist campaign’s own ‘Migrants and refugees welcome’ placards in a deeply disturbing public stunt outside the Tower of London. … Read the rest
Back in July 2014, Eric Brazau entered a crowded subway car along with fellow bigot Ron Banerjee. His intention was to "debate" (read: harass and harangue) individuals on the car about the dangers of Islam and Muslims while Banerjee, acting as if he didn't know Brazau, took a video of the exchange:
Not long after, Brazau was arrested:
Cut to January 2015 when he was convicted of mischief, causing a disturbance, and breaching probation. He was sentenced to 9 months in jail but was released pending an appeal:
At the time of his conviction, Christine Blatchford wrote an opinion column for the "National Post" in which she seemed to mock the sentence and overly sensitive Torontonians. One part stands out for me:Astonishingly in a province where those convicted of more serious offences regularly receive suspended sentences or house arrest, Mr. Brazau was denied bail and has been in custody since his arrest that day, July 29, or for five months and nine days.Yeah, about that....
Brazau did appeal his sentence which was perhaps not surprisingly rejected. ARC received a link to a copy of that appeal where we learned that Eric Brazau has a criminal history that includes assaults, uttering threats, and use of a weapon that goes back more than 30 years:
So, maybe a long criminal history and a history of failing to comply with the conditions of his probation has something to do with the reason he was held in custody prior to his trial?
Just throwing that out there.
Suffice it to say ARC will be updating our "History of Violence" article very soon.
This branch/committee/ organisation notes
- The alarming rise of racism, Islamophobia and Antisemitism and far right forces across Europe, America and elsewhere.
- The rise of right wing populism with racist Nigel Farage’s new project, the growth of a far right movement both in Britain and internationally centred on targeting Muslims, and the continuing dangerous racist rhetoric and scapegoating pushed by the Tories amidst their crisis.

Let's take a little look into the social media posting history of Danny Donovan.
As you can see, he posts the usual Islamophobic garbage. He also posts anti-LGTBQ material as well.
Threats like this need to be taken very seriously. Yellow vest rallies in Hamilton have been attended by people carrying weapons. In particular an attendee swung a telescopic baton at counter protestors.
Not surprisingly #yellowvestscanada members are defending this. However this person is not being truthful regarding the laws. Owning a baton like this is legal, however concealed carry and using it on someone is absolutely not. @HamiltonPolice @CBCNews @antihateca @CBCHamilton pic.twitter.com/DygztPJARN— Yellow Vests Canada Exposed (@VestsCanada) January 14, 2019
We've covered similar events such as this. Last year a group of Proud Boys, Northern Guard, Nouns of Odin, and other extremists planned on going to Hamilton ostensibly to support businesses in the community but was really an effort at self-promotion as well as to antagonize anti-fascists so they could be ambushed and assaulted.
These far right groups also seem to be military fetishists in how they both glorify the armed forces and attempt to emulate them with the ridiculous quasi-military gear which allows them to "play" soldier without actually ever having to put themselves in harms way; the III%ers are the most notorious, but they certainly aren't alone:
Now as bad as it is when they are playing soldier, a greater concern are those who are in the military who have been radicalized by right-wing extremism:
- Member of a Neo-Nazi Terror Group Appears To Be Former Canadian Soldier
- Neo-Nazis chatted about joining Canadian military reserves, report says
- Canadian Military Confirms Neo-Nazi Group Atomwaffen Was Within Its Ranks
I will continue to write about this danger to our country until action is taken. My latest in @TheCJN https://t.co/IYVtLVVwFM @antihateca @ARCCollective #cdnpoli @CanadianArmy @HarjitSajjan— BernieFarber (@BernieFarber) June 27, 2019
ARC has documented a few such instances in the past:
- More Trouble For Boneheads Planning on Attending Calgary Rally
- Paulie Plays Fast and Loose With the Truth
- GermBrit Comments on ARC
- White Supremacists in Canadian Military
- Military "Proud Boys" Disrupt Mi'kmaw Memorial in Halifax
And now we have another person to add to this list:Read more »
