Feds gave native supremacist magazine $1.2M w/recommendation for more in 2010/2011

The use of fire; masks; justification of violence in defence of land and cultural/racial purity; and vilification of victims are common to both white supremacists and native extremists. This visual commentary on the striking similarities of the two groups was produced by a Caledonia resident in 2006 using actual photos from the lawlessness that took place there by native protesters. The masked native (KKK hood added) has been superimposed in front of the Stirling Street bridge which was allowed to burn to the ground because the Ontario Provincial Police refused to protect firefighters from natives who threatened to kill them if they tried to save it.

—————-

The Caledonia Victims Project has received confirmation from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage that it provided a total of $1,052,653 in funding to RedWire Magazine, and continues to fund it despite knowing that its October 2007 Defending the Land edition  contained a ‘how-to’ guide entitled ‘War Against the Machines’ to instruct would-be terrorists on how to block roads, attack snowmobilers, cause floods, use Molotov cocktails and destroy bridges, machinery and hydro lines.

The magazine also contained statements vilifying whites while advocating cultural and racial purity; red power; seizure of white-owned land; war against whites; and isolation/segregation of races.

Despite knowing the magazine was providing native youth with terror and sabotage instructions Canadian Heritage continued to fund RedWire after 2007, and has recommended that it receive another $58,000 in 2010/2011 for a total of $1,110,653 in grants since 2002. The grants are provided by the ‘Cultural Connections for Aboriginal Youth’ program which was formerly known as ‘Urban Multipurpose Aboriginal Youth Centres (UMAYC).’

The figures were confirmed by a Heritage Canada representative via an email dated June 29/10 (reprinted below).

Re: Q re funding for Redwire Magazine

Dear Canadian Heritage (http://www.canadianheritage.gc.ca/eng/1267288013718):

I am working on a story about the encouragement of hate, terror and other criminal activities by aboriginal extremist groups, and have several questions regarding your alleged funding of Redwire Magazine, please.

I have attached excerpts from the October 2007 edition of Redwire magazine which include the credits page and an article entitled, ‘War Against the Machines: Sabotage of the Corporate Colonial System. You can download the full magazine (43MB) at this link:  http://redwiremag.com/assets/Vol_10_Issue_2.pdf or this one: http://www.caledoniawakeupcall.com/media/2007Oct-RedWire-Vol_10_Issue_2.pdf

The credits page contains your logo along with the statement, “We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of Urban Multipurpose Aboriginal Youth Centres (UMAYC) Initiative from the Department of Heritage Canada.”

1. Did the federal government – as this magazine claims – provide any funds for this magazine or the organization or individuals who produced it?

2. If so, how much federal money have they received in total to date, and on what dates was it given?

Respectfully,

Comment

Masked natives w/baseball bats in Caledonia. Click for more images.Many of the sabotage and terror tactics cited by RedWire in October 2007 had already been used by native extremists in Caledonia in 2006. As described in RedWire Magazine’s blueprint for terror & sabotage by native ‘revolutionaries’ paid for by federal funds? I discovered RedWire through a link on a site belonging to Red Power United, the radical native group which had threatened to block Highway 403 during a so-called ‘day of action’ on June 24/10 in conjunction with the G20 summit in Toronto. (Fortunately, it decided not to do so.)

Can it be any wonder that native youth feel so alienated from Canadian culture and so much animosity towards whites (according to RedWire, anyone who isn’t ‘red’ is white) when our federal government provides millions of tax dollars to help them feed on the hatred and propaganda of native extremists?  Remember, this is just one recipient of aboriginal ‘arts’ funding in one city in one province. How much more money is being wasted on promoting racial supremacy, violence and destruction that we don’t know about yet? Meanwhile, ordinary Canadians are left to counter the outrageous propaganda by native extremists at their own expense.

In my ‘Native People are Victims of Two Tier Justice’ speech given on Oct 08/07 for the ‘Remember Us’ March in Caledonia I said the following about how native youth were being corrupted by racial policing policies:

OPP Two Tier Justice policies are based on the false premise that organized criminals speak for honourable native people and that native people are willing to live in a lawless world ruled by criminals who take what they want, when they want. For more than 15 years the OPP has been sacrificing the well-being of law-abiding people – both native and non-native – for the benefit of sociopaths and demagogues.

What does it say to honourable native parents who try to raise their children to have respect for the rights and property of other human beings when the OPP so eagerly reward the sociopaths in native communities for their violence and criminality? How many native youth have been turned away from productive lives by well-meaning, but destructive racial policing policies? How many native parents have been intimidated into silence by Warrior thugs?

  • Natives are victims of Two Tier Justice: given at Oct 08/07 ‘Remember Us’ protest, Caledonia Lions Park  [VIDEO 18.29 mins, PDF]
  • (See also) Mark Vandermaas presentation to 2010 New Directions in Aboriginal Policy forum, Mount Royal University, May 05/10: Listening to Victims: A Fresh Approach to Healing and Reconciliation [PDF, 21p]

We can add the federal government to the list of those who are helping to turn native youth away from productive lives towards violence, hate and destruction. How can we ever hope for healing and reconciliation when those who advocate such evil are being encouraged and funded by the people we entrust to protect us from it?

You may wish to pass on your thoughts to those responsible for funding Redwire Magazine, and to your federal or provincial Member of Parliament:

Dear xxxxx:

I would like to express my strongest objections to the $1.25M in federal funding for RedWire magazine provided by the Department of Canadian Heritage Aboriginal Affairs Branch and by the Canada Council of the Arts since 2002.

In addition to inciting war and hate against whites the December 2007 edition provided specific instructions for acts of terror and sabotage against white-owned and public property including the blocking of roads, burning of bridges and destruction of hydro towers.

Unbelievably, both Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts have continued to fund this publication. According to Canadian Heritage RedWire is “recommended” to receive another $58,000 for 2010/2011. This grant would bring total federal funding for RedWire to $1,250,053.
