Metro Toronto Council Votes to Fund Marxist-Terrorist Group - Some
Thoughts for July 4, 1996
Today, here in America, we are celebrating the "Fourth-of-July,"
the birthday and the most patriotic holiday of this country. While we are
doing so in our back yards with our barbeques and our wading pools for
our little ones, our "democratic" neighbor to the North, Canada,
is slowly but surely sinking into chaos - largely thanks to goaded and,
worse, publicly supported, financed action of the Marxist mob.
Here is a sneak preview of how this is accomplished. In an Open Letter
to the Council of the City of Toronto, a young Canadian, Marc Lemire, wrote
". . . I am writing you today to urge you to vote NO (on a government
grant) . . . Over the past few weeks, I have personally faxed to your office
over 60 pieces of information on the antics of the ARA (Anti-Racist-Action
group) and some of the violent behaviour they have exhibited.
I have proven without a doubt that these people are terrorists (who) constantly
break the law with little to no worry of being prosecuted in the courts.
If you are going to vote yes to this grant, you not only are funding one
of the worst terrorists groups in Toronto's history, you are giving Metro's
OK to a rag-tag band of street punks who use terror and mayhem to further
their own personalities and agendas. . . "
Marc then goes on to summarize selected samples of the behavior of this
Ä On November 13, 1992 about 125 members of Anti-Racist Action
threw eggs and insults at the windows of a restaurant which hosted the
Heritage Front for a meeting. The Toronto Sun carried a photo of two Anti-Racist
Action members attacking a lone "Heritage Front supporter" after
the meeting. (Toronto Sun, November 14, 1992) The same Toronto Sun article
goes on to say "ARA members chanted 'run Nazi scum' and 'garbage'
at Front members. Some swung picket signs and others chased rally goers
down the street, hurling obscenities".
Ä On January 25, 1993 members of Anti-Racist Action ". . . threw
rocks, eggs and insults," according to CTV News that same evening.
The Heritage Front was ordered to appear before the Canadian Human Rights
Commission and the ARA showed up to confront them.
The police stepped in and formed a protective ring around members of the
Heritage Front and escorted them into the Courthouse.
After the Heritage Front was inside, hearing the Human Rights Commissions
complaint, the ARA turned their anger on the police During the riot that
ensued with police and members of Anti-Racist Action, two police officers
Members of Anti-Racist Action pelted the police with barrage after barrage
of eggs, rocks, paint and human excrement bombs. Police horses were hit
numerous times in the eyes with rocks and other projectiles (The Police
Department later equipped the horses with special protective visors to
protect them) CTV news that same evening showed clips of Anti-Racist Action
members attacking the Police Horses using sticks (and) eggs. One ARA member
even threw his bicycle right at one horse.
Ä On June 11, 1993 a rampaging mob of about 200 Anti-Racist Action
members stormed the home of the Heritage Front's hotline announcer Gary
Schipper, a political opponent of ARA.
During this protest, members of Anti-Racist action wore hoods and some
wore paper faces of Mr. Schipper. On the march to Mr. Schipper's house
some of the organizers of the march were pasting up stickers which listed
the home address of Mr. Schipper as well as a clear photograph of him.
During the violent attack that followed, ARA members threw paint bombs,
firecrackers, human excrement and bottles of urine. Several of the crowd
jumped onto the porch of Mr. Schipper's house, smashed the windows and
threw paint balloons through the broken glass window.
During this riot, the ARA caused over $75,000 damage to the house itself
and ruined Mr. Schipper's bed, clothes and his office equipment, which
was in the direct path of incoming "Human Excrement Bombs".
Ä On Sat., December 9, 1995 members of Anti-Racist Action attacked
a private meeting of a group called "Citizens for Foreign Aid Reform
(C-FAR)" - a group that protests out-of-control Third World immigration
During this attack, the group of masked Anti-Racist Action members spit
at meeting participants, threw milk on a table full of books and assaulted
an elderly lady by slapping her in the face.
When the owner came to ask the motley crew of vigilantes to leave, he was
spit at and verbally abused. After being kicked out of this meeting, the
ARA continued to pound on the glass window outside the restaurant and harass
customers of the restaurant.
Ä On February 5, 1996, eighteen heavily armed members of Anti-Racist
Action attacked 3 people whom they assumed to be "Nazis". Upon
seeing the three people sitting in Kennedy subway station, the Anti-Racist
Action members started verbally and physically harassing them. (Jonathan
Kingstone article, Toronto Sun, Feb. 5, 1996)
While yelling and screaming, one Anti-Racist Action member hit one of the
victims with a steel pipe. Three people were stabbed and one had his jugular
cut, just barely escaping death.
The ARA is very keen on postering. Posters put up at intervals have
shown various people's pictures, licence plates and home addresses the
ARA claims are "Hatemongers in the City".
Foremost among their targets is Ernst Zündel. One poster, entitled
"Bored?" advocated the firebombing of Ernst Zundel's house on
Carlton Street - which, in fact, happened only months after the showing
up of this poster!
The direct result was a $400,000 fire that would have killed Ernst in his
fourth story bedroom, had he not been on a trip. (It almost killed four
young renters living in the building to the right who had to jump naked
out of a window.)
This poster is a classic in mob audacity. It shows Ernst' picture, a map
of the area around Mr. Zundel's house, an arrow to his house, and directions
on how to make a firebomb. As if that were not enough, it shows the picture
of a man throwing a molotov cocktail with the inscription "Your Picture
Therefore, it stands to reason that Ernst Zundel, more than anybody else,
has ample cause to oppose the ARA. For more than three years, posters of
him have appeared by the thousands all over Toronto, showing his face in
the cross hairs of a rifle. When he asked for police action after ARA members
were seen and recognized by people on his team, the police refused to even
take down a complaint - much less act on it and arrest those who advocated
this arson and suggested assassination.
This unsavory group recently planned a three day conference (June 22-23)
financed by public monies - i.e., a a grant which Karen Mock of B'nai Brith
loudly supported. The conference has since taken place.
Sabina Citron, one of Ernst Zündel's long-time political opponents,
and Karen Mock of B'nai Brith were featured speakers and panelists at that
conference. Among many other things, it taught participants how to use
stencils for illegal graffiti and several pirate radio techniques, illegal
as well. The grant objected to above by Marc Lemire, for which the ARA
had previously applied to the City Council, is assumed to off-set some
of the costs of this conference.
Before the Metro Toronto Council got to voting on this grant, Ernst Zündel
had written in an Open Letter:
". . . ARA is a violent, quasi-terrorist, anarchist group and
has been so documented by the press.
The ARA grant application is itself bizarre and highly unprofessional.
None of the three individuals listed as responsible for the conference
have street addresses or personal phone numbers. All list their addresses
as PO Box 664, Station C, Toronto M5J 3S1 and their phone number as 416-631-8835.
Even more bizarre, the ARA, not being a non-profit organization, has had
to get a British Columbia group, the "Canadian Anti-Racism Education
and Research Society", to act as their financial trustee. Interestingly,
the contact person, one Alan Dutton, is to be flown in all the way from
British Columbia, the other end of the country, to be one of the conference
speakers. Dutton is a well-known West Coast leftist . . . "
You would have thought that such a "record" would have been
a sufficient deterrent for any responsible public official to throw this
scum group right out the door. Not so. To his meek credit, one councillor,
Fotinos, introduced a timid amendment that the ARA ". . . come up
with a list of names of their officers and principles and their financial
structures." Others tried to to nail down the ARA to employ "only
But little did that count.
After a day-long debate, The money allocated to these punks was a nifty
$8,000 of the $18,000 originally requested. The vote of your public servants
was 22 councillors for the grant and 8 against it - in other words, a vote
of 3 to 1 in favor of street violence!
". . . Most of the ones who voted for the grant seem to think
that if they did not vote for the financing of this Marxist-anarchist bunch,
they would be considered "soft on Neo-Nazis." All cloaked themselves
in their anti-racism rhetoric as if it were a mantra of magic incantation.
The most vicious and hateful were, predictably, Councillor Moscoe, who
wanted "violence opposed by violence" to "fight the Nazis
to my last breath." He made this statement, face contorted with hate,
his voice quivering with raw emotion. Similarly, Councillor Layton, who
was, as per usual, all things to all men - homosexuals, lesbians, Blacks
The other councillors were the typical mealy-mouthed, politically correct
snivelers, chasing after a little back-slapping from B'nai Brith and other
parasites feeding off the public trough.
The one interesting aspect of this whole ARA grant matter is what was revealed
about the intelligence sharing and cooperation between B'nail Brith and
the violence-prone ARA. It is obvious to not a few that some of the Jewish
organizations have been using the ARA as their useful idiots and cannon
fodder - as I suspected all along.
Theyse people are now publicly identified as the protectors, promoters
and benefactors of the ARA. Either they intended to elevate these Marxists,
or they are arrogant enough to think that they cannot be touched by the
scandals caused by this violence-prone gangs of thugs and terrorists.
We live in interesting times. . . "
The Councillors who voted against this grant being given to the
ARA are: Norman Kelly, Raymond Cho, Gordon Chong, Brian Harrison, Douglas
