University Of Toronto Maoists Gone Stupid At The Trans March!

"I am not amused with my UofT followers!"

“I am not amused with my UofT followers!”

Back in April I covered the story about how a group of crazy Maoists and anarchists attempted to crush free speech at the University of Toronto. The speech they were trying to suppress was of Men’s Rights Advocates who were trying to hold a meeting at the (appropriately chosen) Zoological Sciences building. The protesters ended up pulling the fire alarm- what happened was more like high school than university.

I ran across the same group of Maoists at Friday’s Trans march. It appears that they recognized me and made the incorrect assumption that I was a Men’s Rights Advocate. This is strange, because the article I wrote about what happened in April was highly critical of the MRA’s (as well as the Maoists and anarchists)…

[Updated] Breaking: #SwampLine9 Supporters Claim Disruptions Due To Rail Sabotage…

—————————————-

A statement was released yesterday on an anarchist website by a group identifying themselves as “some anarchists”. In it they not only claim to have sabotaged a train line, but have also given simple instructions on how to do it. If true, this is a dangerous progression (and matches some of the organizer’s Ruckus Society training).

The online representative for the pipeline occupiers responded cheering…

[Updated] Enbridge Pipeline Occupier Native Headdress Theatre (Or: #SwampLine9 protesters gone wild!)

Update: If you check out this video from the CBC you’ll see that the native protester is a young man and that the police treated him exceedingly politely.

The Line 9 pipeline pumping station hijacking is now officially over- the police came in this morning, 20 protesters were arrested and it’s been reported they’ve all now been released. Some of the leaders of the hijacking have a raw hatred for the police, so it’s inevitable they’ll throw in some anti-cop theatre. This protest’s grand finale comes in the form of a native man’s headdress and ‘regalia’.

Though it’s unknown if the man was wearing his headdress throughout the occupation, but he was wearing it at the time of his arrest. A headdress doesn’t fit very well into a police van, and it’s standard procedure to take away satchels and other decorative items when someone is arrested. The cops did their job by the book- which is exactly what the protesters had hoped for and knew was coming.

[Updated] Is CBC Hamilton’s Reporting On The Enbridge Occupation Clueless, Biased, Or Worse? (feat. Hamilton Police)

UPDATE: One of the two people in this picture was originally identfied as Taylor Flook, who has written to me to say it wasn’t her. I am currently waiting for comment from her on who the other person is alleged to be…

It’s been frustrating watching CBC Hamilton’s coverage of the Enbridge pipeline hijacking. On the one hand their reporting has been useful- though it appears unintentional, Adam Carter’s picture of Trish Mills locking the gates helped expose we’re dealing with the usual suspects. But, his lack of naming names was embarrassing- particularly with infamous protesters like Alex Hundert and Ruby Montour taking visible leadership roles.

Today the CBC did a follow-up story titled National protests will support Hamilton Enbridge activitists [sic]- a piece showcasing how people ‘across the country’ will be protesting in a “day of solidarity’ for the hijackers. But, unfortunately, the quality of Ryan Mallough’s reporting was no better than CBC editor’s spell-checking skills. Like Carter, Mallough must have completely missed that he was being taken for a ride (or, not).

Why It’s Wrong To Support The Enbridge Pipeline Hijackers (Especially if you’re an environmentalist…)

Alex Hundert: Mastermind of the violence at the G20...

Alex Hundert: Mastermind & Ringleader Behind the G20 Black Bloc violence…

Some breaking news on the pipeline hijacking in Flamborough. New videos were released by the Hamilton Spectator that give more insight into the hijackers and their lack of respect for civil society- things are getting very interesting. But equally, things are looking potentially dangerous- some of Ontario’s most notorious militant cop haters now have control of an oil pipeline pumping station.

The protester’s narrative already appears to have some serious holes. Their official statements about Enbridge’s licensing requirements conflict with what other environmental organizations have been saying. Indicators are the protesters have not been telling the whole truth. They also don’t appear to have entirely ruled-out the use of violence.
