The Cozy Relationship Between Rebel Media Personalities (Past and Present) and White Nationalist Generation Identity/ID Canada
The individual observing the event is seen above commenting on 4chan which is one of the toxic cesspools found online rife with racism, sexism, Islamophobia, and antisemitism. The individual took a number of photographs documenting his or her presence at the event:
The posts made by the individual (highlighted in red) and others certainly conform to the vicious hatred that one would expect to find on 4chan as well:
In some cases I've included the comment being responded too and combined it with the reply.
Now if I were to post every racist thing posted on 4chan, even if I confined myself to including only Canadian posts I'd be too busy to do anything else with my day. The reason why this particular thread is compelling is because of this comment in which the individual claims to be a writer for Rebel Media as well as being on the administrative team for Generation Identity Canada:
Generation Identity Canada, now rebranded as ID Canada, was barely on my radar at the time this post was made. I was somewhat aware of the movement in Europe but was more focused on more public groups such as the Soldiers of Odin and Pegida Canada. Over the past few years however this particular "identitarian" group and the movement in general has come to occupy a fair amount of my time.
Now while regular readers are likely all well aware of who Generation Identity/ID Canada is as well as the beliefs the membership holds at this point there may be a few new readers who would like a bit of a primer:
- Likely Generation Identity Canada Leader Revealed
- Generation Identity, Alt-Right Montreal, and the Identity of "Date"
- Generation Identity Canada Rebrands As ID Canada: Flyering Campaign This Past Monday
I can't speak to the truthfulness of claims the person posting these messaged made regarding his or her involvement with both Rebel Media or Generation Identity. I haven't been able to find any video on "The Rebel's" website that match the description of what was described and the original Generation Identity Canada Facebook page has long since gone the way of the Dodo only to replaced by a new Facebook group. However, one thing that is very clear is that current and former members of the Rebel Media team have had a very close relationship with Generation Identity/Generation Identity Canada/ID Canada over the years and have spent a lot of time promoting the group (full video "Exposure Undercover: Inside Britain's New Far Right can be found here):

When the officer attempted to help the man locate his dog, Green allegedly pulled out a pistol and pointed it at him. The officer then removed himself from the situation, called 911, and responding Mounties quickly arrested Green. A handgun and ammunition were seized from the car he was driving.Not exactly the best way to make friends and influence people.
Green faces six charges including, "pointing a firearm, possession dangerous to public, carrying a concealed weapon and unauthorized possession." He also amassed a considerable arsenal in his home as well:
RCMP on Vancouver Island have seized more than 100 firearms after executing a search warrant in Campbell River.....That night, police began what turned into a four-day search of Green’s property, in which they seized three full pick-up truckloads of guns, ammunition and prohibited devices. Police said the search was temporarily delayed when explosive materials were found and a disposal unit was called to the scene. “More than 100 guns, handguns, shotguns and assault-style rifles were seized. Many were prohibited firearms such as a WWII Bren machine gun with a tripod,” said an RCMP media release. “Investigators also located what can be described as homemade silencers, zip guns, prohibited over capacity magazines and untraceable firearms.”Well it turns out that Mr. Green is someone who happens to be ideologically aligned with the reactionary Yellow Vest movement in the country:
We're waiting for confirmation on this, but it looks like a #YellowVestsCanada member has been arrested for pointing a gun at an off-duty RCMP officer. His home was searched, and the police seized many weapons and explosives. https://t.co/zVxd0WZLyk— Yellow Vests Canada Exposed (@VestsCanada) February 9, 2019
This is Tony Green from Campbell River. His Facebook profile is very pro-gun. pic.twitter.com/FBkMXjUhgC— Yellow Vests Canada Exposed (@VestsCanada) February 9, 2019
He is very pro yellow vest convoy. I certainly hope this person with so many weapons and explosives wasn't going to Ottawa. pic.twitter.com/dClMvC4ow1— Yellow Vests Canada Exposed (@VestsCanada) February 9, 2019
And yeah, he is very pro-gun....
.... and very anti-government:
In one example on his Facebook profile, Green shares an image originally posted by the new head of the III% militia which appears to attempt to provide justification for the violent overthrow of a democratically elected government:
Considering he appears to have ties to the reactionary Yellow Vesters which has been documented (primarily by the incredible Yellow Vests Canada Exposed) as having supporters who routinely threaten and advocate for the death of the prime minister as well as at least tacit support for the III% militia, I can't help be a bit concerned about heavily armed individuals being among their members, especially when they are already prone to far-right paranoid conspiracy theories:
And, not surprising, he is also found in the web connections between people covered on the blog including Ronny Cameron, Jeff Sharpe, Sandra Solomon, Adam Stevenson, Georges Hallack, Georges Massaad, Darren Tibbo (WCAI member), Dan Dubois, Lynn Redden, Brad Salzburg, and Kevin Johnston among others:
I wonder if anyone associated with the Yellow Vests convoy to Ottawa plans on being armed to the teeth as well?
