Antisemitic National Party in Canada - CAEF Bulletin July 16, 2020

Antisemitism has Reared its Ugly Head Again – CAEF is Taking Action

Beware The Parasitic Tribe

THE PEOPLE WE SPEAK OF ARE NOT TRULY ‘JEWS’. THEY ARE LIARS AND DECEIVERS ATTEMPTING TO SHIELD THEMSELVES FROM CRITICISM USING A FALSE IDENTITY. LET US BE AWARE AND EXPOSE THEM FOR WHAT THEY ARE: A TRIBE OF PARASITES.

Travis Patron, founder and head of the registered political party Canadian Nationalist Party (CNP), a party that espouses white nationalist views, recently reposted a vile video of himself calling for "that Parasite Tribe" to be "removed from Canada once and for all". He goes on to use canards and derogatory terms long used to attack the Jewish community.

This first came to our attention in 2019 when a hate crime investigation was launched by the local RCMP. An article in the National Post late last year indicated that the matter was before the Crown to consider laying charges. In the last few days, the video along with a flier has been reposted on various social media accounts and website. While the flier repeats much of the hate laden rhetoric of the video, it adds one telling comment

"The people we speak of are not truly 'Jews'. They are liars and deceivers attempting to shield themselves from criticism using a false identity. Let us be aware and expose them for what they are: a tribe of parasites."

For further details we refer you to look at this media story from the Jerusalem Post

While the CNP itself has little support, it did collect 250 signatures allowing it to register as a political party. To see these names, click here. (Anyone who sees their name here might want to have it removed if not an antisemite.)

We have reached out to the local Saskatchewan RCMP as well as the Premier, the provincial MLAs and federal MP for the constituency, and the Attorney General/Minister of Justice to add our voice to those calling for the hate crime investigation launched last year to move forward in light of this new escalation with all due haste. We also informed them that a coin which the RCMP alleged breached their copyright in 2019 now appears once again on the CNP's site here.

We have contacted Elections Canada asking that they review the party's registration.

We have reported the social media posts as hate content that violates their guidelines and reached out to web service providers.

No acts of antisemitism should go unchallenged.
