Rebel Media Cuts Ties With Racist “Nationalist” Star (Jan. 2019 Edition)

"The “white genocide” booster, who once seemed dismayed by the presence of Black people in Toronto, was the biggest name remaining at a site that once served as the SNL of launching alt-lite careers, boasting such luminaries as Faith Goldy, Lauren Southern, Gavin McInnes, Tommy Robinson, Laura Loomer, and others whose names are mercifully no longer at the ready in our heads. Hopkins’s departure also means that for the first time in nearly two years, there is no one on the masthead listed as a “Shillman Fellow,” a position subsidized by barcode-scanner magnate Robert Shillman. Robinson, a previous fellow, reportedly earned the equivalent of about $170,000 CAD per year from the site. Last year, Hopkins applied for insolvency following the loss of a high-profile defamation suit. Having joined the site in January of 2018, Hopkins’s tenure lasted nearly a full year. Former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka, Rebel Media’s other high-profile get last year, stuck around for just two and a half months."


Facebook begins removing comments from Yellow Vests Canada group following talk of killing Trudeau

Facebook began removing content from the Yellow Vests Canada Facebook group on Wednesday after Global News reported the page contained numerous comments about killing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canadians Made A Facebook Protest Group About Justin Trudeau And It's Full Of Death Threats

"Facebook administrators aren't the only ones taking note of the violent comments and death threats. A Twitter account under the name Yellow Vests Canada Exposed has also been compiling the numerous threats made on their page." 

CORRECTION: Facebook is taking note of the threats only because Yellow Vests Canada Exposed documented the extent of such threats against the Prime Minister, along with the outpourings of hate from YVC supporters, including notable white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

Thunder Bay rally participants have had 'enough' of racism toward Indigenous people

About 100 people gathered in front of Thunder Bay city hall Tuesday to publicly call for a safer community for, and more tolerant city toward, Indigenous people.

Organizers of the rally say they also want to know what municipal, provincial and federal governments will do to combat racism locally and across the country.

"It's time for change, I want to know what individuals are going to do to combat racism," Scott Hobbs, one of the organizers, told CBC News. "I want to ask all three levels of government what they're going to do to fight racism."

"It's time."

Youtube and the vortex of hate

Video-sharing platform accused of giving voice to hate groups.

Sites like Gab rely on Youtube as a media archive for hate and conspiracy content... Videos are often used as 'evidence' in debates. 

"Yet Youtube blocks anti-racist content from anti-racist organizations while givcing space to fascists," said Alan Dutton of the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society, commenting on the Washington Post report.  



This blog article is the first known publication in Canada related to Firearms, Gangs and Extremists that specifically comments on the intersections of gangs, extremism, firearms law and Internet in Canada.

This article is written with knowledge (of the author) that national security teams across Canada have failed to address the alarming fact that para military extremist training camps have emerged all over western Canada in the last two years. These training camps use both firearms and improvised explosives.

Also, gang units and national security teams are aware of the connections between gangs and extremist groups throughout Canada but choose to not address the interplay between gangs and extremists.

This article is written with the intention to contribute to a momentum of  ideas for addressing a real problem: Firearms, Gangs, Extremists and the Internet.
