Far Right Week In Review, February 16 To February 22

Friday, February 16


More on the bitter infighting between Action4Canada, A4C’s lawyer Rocco Galati and their opponents within the “Freedom Movement”. Rocco appears to be about to lose his house. A4C’s revenues have been cut in half. This is a major bloodbath within the antivaxxers, and appears to be doing significant damage to one of the most important organizations the movement has produced. https://www.freepolitik.com/p/a-small-mob-of-military-style-agitators?r=1h0d6r&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&fbclid=IwAR24UQRXGtaA58xfecPVrNY3yJZNyEqr82jq6zX46jTCjsN4MejPfY7jKMs


The far right is sensing that widespread opposition to the NDP’s proposed changes to the Land Act presents them with a significant opportunity to attack the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous people. (Update, the NDP tucked tail and bailed: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/first-nations-leaders-disgusted-that-opposition-derailed-proposed-bc-land-act-amendments-1.6779515 )

Last week saw an antivaxx protest in Victoria targeting the premiere of a film about Bonnie Henry. About 30 antivaxxers travelled from the lower mainland to harass the event. Victoria police were in attendance due to their aggressiveness.


One of the attendees was Gordon Watson. “People don’t like [Bonnie Henry]. A lot of people really hate her. I mean, I’ll tell you, one lady I know who’s a seasoned lawyer and a mature personality, and she says ‘I’d like to see her hang’.” Watson is a Christian fundamentalist with a long string of convictions for contempt of court, assault and aggravated assault.


More recently he’s moved on from anti-abortion activism. He now organizes meetings around Victoria for Canada’s most prominent neo-Nazi Paul Fromm. https://www.saanichnews.com/news/holocaust-denier-leads-meeting-in-sidney-264556

It looks like the Fraser Institute is getting on board with the far right’s campaign against UNDRIP and any form of indigenous rights. Opposition to the NDP’s Land Act amendments is just the tip of a very large and very racist iceberg

.
Part of that iceberg is their argument that residential schools weren’t so bad after all. https://x.com/drex/status/1760035541016617014?s=20

The Conservative Party of BC will be running on a rabidly anti-trans program this fall. Despite that, their candidates can expect to be under a lot of pressure from the transphobe movement to take even more extreme positions.


Speaking of extreme positions, in its long march to Gilead, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that embryos are people, citing the Old Testament -- “We believe that each human being, from the moment of conception, is made in the image of God, created by Him to reflect His likeness. It is as if the People of Alabama took what was spoken of the prophet Jeremiah and applied it to every unborn person in this state: ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, Before you were born I sanctified you.’ Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV 1982),” the opinion read.” https://newrepublic.com/post/179122/alabama-supreme-court-bible-embryo-ruling-ivf


Ignoring the fact that you can freeze embryos but you can’t freeze babies, the court’s chief justice declared “the theologically based view if the sanctity of life adopted by the People of Alabama encompasses the following: (1) God made every person in His image; (2) each person therefore has a value that far exceeds the ability of human beings to calculate; and (3) human life cannot be destroyed without incurring the wrath of a holy God, who views the destruction of His image as an affront to Himself.” https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2024/02/21/us/alabama-supreme-court-embryo-ruling.html


Despite this Godly sentiment, the state of Alabama does not require a jury to be unanimous in order to impose a death penalty; it executed two inmates last year; there are another 167 on death row. https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/facts-and-research/dpic-reports/dpic-year-end-reports/the-death-penalty-in-2023-year-end-report

W. Brett Wilson’s an investment banker. In 2018, Wilson produced a series of tweets describing anti-pipeline activists as "slimy bastards," calling for them to be hanged for "treason". CBC Calgary decided against using Wilson as a future commentator because of these comments. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Brett_Wilson


Brett also likes white supremacists like Tucker. He helped organize his visit to Alberta. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/tucker-carlson-danielle-smith-calgary-analysis-1.7094117

The Long Read – The sheer scope of grifting within the “Freedom Movement” is truly breathtaking. Predators eating bullies. https://canucklaw.ca/covid-hoax-grifters/?fbclid=IwAR2fF3xEok-hsIv47riwFUaGIfM8wwUpVlQcDXezwhh_iN_e10Afe2JdRcc

Coming Events --
March 9 – Stand United rears its ugly head again, organizing a nationwide anti-media demo. In Vancouver it’s targeting CTV. https://x.com/atRachelGilmore/status/1744733058312675586?s=20 


March 19 – New Ontario convoy planning to occupy police stations. Good luck with that.
