Tonight, as the protesters were attacking police officers in front of the Toronto Police Service’s 14 Division, our good friend Davyn Calfchild (a.k.a. Davin Ouilet) joined in with a double helping of racist comments. He began by yelling at the police saying “You can’t f##king own our land forever!”. A couple minutes later he yelled out an incredibly racist remark to a black police officer:
“He must have done that to his own people back in Africa!”
There was no way to determine if the cop came from Africa, he spoke fluent Canadian English. Really, there was no excuse- what Calfchild said to the cop was incredibly racist. A black woman beside him look horrified when someone behind him laughed at his statement. As she should have been- what he said was totally wrong.
This isn’t the first time Calfchild has exposed his racist self. Last week on his Occupy Toronto Livestream show he proclaimed “don’t bury me next to a synagogue“. Calfchild is half Yemeni, and appears to have similar problems with Jewish people as the infamous Taliban Billy.
Back in March, at the Zach Ruiter/Cheri DiNovo racist anti-police march, Calfchild got into a similar situation with another police officer. He was arguing over his indigenous right to smoke next to a playground when one of the cops pointed out that he was being racist saying “you’ve been making WOP jokes all day”. Calfchild simply laughed it off- as did his fellow protesters.
There are a couple of patterns here. First, Calfchild obviously has some racist tendencies- this is hardly acceptable. Next, and perhaps more important, is that his fellow activists have done nothing to call him out on his bad behaviour. Considering how much time and effort they put into accusing their rivals of being racist (even when it’s not true), this is the height of hypocrisy.
Some of the more misguided radicals will try to justify this sort of behaviour by saying there’s no such thing as reverse racism. When it comes to racism in their own ranks, people on the left tend to fall into the perils of solidarity– where one’s not allowed to question their fellow activists.
And this, my friends, is why the radical left is bound to fail…
