An amazing thing happened this week- something that if it’s true, leaves me seriously disappointed with the people of Toronto. Why? Because, according to NOW Magazine’s 2012 Best Of Toronto poll, Torontonians believe that No One Is Illegal (NoII) is the city’s best activist organization. How can that be?
Don’t NOW readers understand how NoII support and have deep connections to the Black Bloc anarchists who have been committing acts of violence on our streets? Perhaps they never saw the video classic where NoII Vancouver’s leader not only supported violence, but promoted ‘de-arresting’ comrades.
If you don’t know this already, please have a look at that video:
When NoII’s Walia (pictured above) mentioned the phrase ‘de-arresting’, did that sound familiar? It should, that’s what Alex Hundert was arrested for after coaching the city’s anarchists to forcefully pull people away from the police if they are being arrested. Hundert is in prison for that now.
NoII is an entryist organization- meaning, they put a lot of effort into infiltrating other organizations and causes in an attempt to build their power and influence. Occupy Toronto is a great example- NoII members manipulated Occupy throughout it’s existence. When people started waking up to this fact, NoII and their anarchists executed a hostile takeover.
I’m relatively new to Toronto. As a part of getting to understand the local activist community I’ve asked many people the same, simple,. question: “What organizations have been causing problems in the community- stirring things up between people.” The answer was always wither NoII or Queers Against Israeli Apartheid. And, guess what, they’re both joined at the hip.
How about NoII’s standing on racism- they’re good in that area, right? After all, they fight for immigrant rights, NoII couldn’t possibly be promoting racist hate and violence, could they?
Well, they are. NoII is very closely tied to the Native Youth Movement- a radical indigenous group that promotes hate and violence against white people. Have a look at this video and see for yourself. Pay special attention to the chorus where they sing “take back the land, kill the white man”. Oh, and the part about whitey’s blood spurting is pretty classic too:
But, if the average NOW reader is in the dark about NoII’s ugly side, NOW’s editors and journalists must be aware- right? Let’s have a look at how NOW described NoII in their poll:
Notice how the text is apologetic and promotive of NoII. Either the person who wrote this is incredibly naïve (for a journalist), or they are knowingly greasing over the fact that NoII is a racist organization that promotes the use of violence. I’m not sure which scenario is more disturbing- either way, things aren’t looking that good for NOW at the moment.
NoII is a revolutionary Trotskyist organization that promotes the use of racial division and violence- hardly Toronto’s best activist organization. NOW has some explaining to do in this situation. Because, if their ‘Best Of’ is so greatly flawed for activist organizations, you’ve got to wonder about the restaurant reviews too…
