A Year Later, And Their Numbers Have Doubled

From March 2008:

Approximately 25 Aryan Guard members gathered at the Franklin LRT station, rode the C-Train to downtown and started making their way down to the Mewata Armoury...

This year the number is estimated at 60.

Meanwhile, the Alberta government's attempts to gut its own human rights code while allowing parents to pull their children from science class proceeds apace.

Update: Rick Bell, who has been cheerleading these "fixes" in the pages of the Calgary Herald, took a placard to the head at yesterday's demonstration.

Actually the numbers at last year's march were on the order of 43 Aryan Guard members. This year saw an increase in their numbers, but not an increase in the magnitude of those who opposed them.

So there were roughly 56 Aryan Guard members and over 500 anti-racists. Paul Fromm is claiming there were 85 Aryan Guard members and supporters (including himself and Terry Tremaine) and 300 anti-racists (he terms as communists).

Still, 25, 56, or 85, that's too many.

I've heard 25, 50, and 60 from MSM sources.

Ah yes, the great Aryan threat. *yawn*

But on the subject of Islamic extremism in Canada, with numerous persons being charged, on trial, or being deported? *silence*

You pick what you wish to be concerned about Paul, we'll pick what we choose to be concerned about.

Bill Noble, and Aryan Guard member, is claiming they may have had 120 members. It could very well be tongue in cheek though.

You pick what you wish to be concerned about Paul,

That's just it. In the years he's trolled here, he's never given a hint that he's interested about anything.

Years worth of comments like the last one is all Paul S. has ever contributed.

Paul S said...

Well I least try to be concerned by what are actual threats noonespecial instead of obsessing on overly-PC, largely illusory strawmen.

Ti-Guy said...

You're the biggest climate change denier around and you annoy everyone.

Yeah...really dedicated to the common good.

....really concerned about what are actual threats.....Paul S - have you not paid any attention to what's happening in the US with these people. Murders, beatings, etc. of not only blacks and gays, but now hispanics. Na, not to be concerned - uh, huh

That woman was assaulted by a strawman then?

The Phantom said...

So any further word on the York University nazis? Or do they not have the right haircuts?

Professing concern over as many as 60 [gasp!] Jew hatin' dimwits in far away Calgary while ignoring (or supporting!) a whole street full chanting "Kill the Jews!" in down town Toronto?

Dare I say, WTF?

Ti-Guy said...

Heh. Check out Phanty's blog. He's got comment moderation on. He then approves comments, then deletes them and then comments on the deletion.

The power is galvanic, isn't it, Phanty?

Just read, "The Phantom's" blog. The paranoid ramblings of a crackpot.

Yawn. Boring and, after a while, painfully predictable.

Ti-Guy said...

Emphasis on the crack in "crackpot."

The Phantom said...

Greetings WeeWee. I have a little troll infestation I'm taking care of with my cluebat. His comments are kind of like yours, but more inventive.

So, when did you and BCL join Stormfront?

noonespecial200 said...

And now he's talking to himself... or to his WeeWee.

There are medical innovations that can treat people like you now. With the proper regiment of drugs, you too can lead what would pass as a normal life.

The Phantom said...

Noone, WeeWee knows who he is. Or she, or it, I've never been entirely sure.

But anyway, if you don't like my blog please feel free to never ever go there again. Ever. It will save me a lot of scrubbing.

If I leave the slime on too long it starts to pit the finish, y'know.

And when did -you- join Stormfront, noone?

noonespecial200 said...

And now he ascribes a personality to his WeeWee? Our boy here might be more damaged than I had thought.
