Meow everyone. I my last article, I introduced you all to some methods used to radicalize the young, at an early age to certain doctrines and ideologies which are consistent with today’s brand of terrorism . Universities and in particular , radical student unions and organizations play a very significant role in targeting and training these future troublemakers . For those who have been following my blog over the many years, you will have known me to make many references to the Canadian Federation of Students , or CFS for short. in this article, I will show you how they are directly involved in the radicalization process , and who is doing the radicalizing, and how.
The radicalization begins with the first second on the campus of a CFS affiliated university . The target group are primarily first year students . The target group within this small group are students in either journalism or social work programs. These students within these area of studies have ready make , well trained , seasoned radicals already well i place to mentor these new recruits . There are well healed third and forth year students there in place to guide the new students along, as well, these programes, have some of most radicalized professors to teach these new students the ropes . Ryerson University has a plethora of these highly radical professors to pick from.
Winni Ng is a ” … Labour rights activist and scholar Winnie Ng has joined Ryerson University as the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy. The CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy is the first union-endowed chair at a Canadian university. In her role, Ng will build upon the work of inaugural chair Judy Rebick, a well-known journalist, author and activist who was first appointed in 2002. The chair’s mandate is to create a hub of interaction between social justice activists and academics at Ryerson. Ng holds a MA and PhD from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Her doctoral studies focused on re-imagining the labour movement from an anti-racism perspective. … “ ( sourced from http://www.ryerson.ca/socialjustice/about/Winnie_Ng )
While people such as Ng would most certainly not risk their well paid careers and union backing to personal engage in violent actions, the have no trouble giving speeches endorsing such actions and in some cases, even endorsing certain high profile domestic terrorists . ( more on that shortly )
Judy Rebick was ” … the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy at Ryerson University in Toronto. Judy was the founding publisher of rabble.ca, Canada’s most popular progressive online publication. She is the author of several books, the most recent of which is Transforming Power: From the Personal to the Political. You can visit her website to read her blog and learn more about the book. Judy also wrote Ten Thousand Roses: The Making of a Feminist Revolution during her time at Ryerson. Judy also co-hosts Reel Women, a movie review podcast on the rabble podcast network.
For most the 1990s, Judy was the host of a national TV show on CBC Newsworld. Previously, she was president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, Canada’s largest women’s group.
Since she started in August 2002, Judy has initiated and participated in many projects, including:
- Gathering of Mother Earth Protectors, a three-day sleepover at Queen’s Park in June, 2008, organized with the communities of K.I. First Nation, Ardoch First Nation, Grassy Narrows First Nation, as well as a broad cross-section of local, national, and international social justice and environmental groups. This event raised awareness among Ontario politicians, media, and public about the rights of First Nations communities to protect their land from corporations who wish to extract their natural resources, and to protest the jailing of members of these communities who blocked these corporations from their lands.
- The Anti-Racism Taskforce at Ryerson University
- The Toronto Social Forum, which started with a large social forum event in 2003, and continued to bring together the broader social justice community across Toronto afterwards through a large e-mail list for activist event announcements across Toronto, and by holding various report-back events with Torontonians who have visited international social forums over the years. In January of 2008, the Gindin Chair brought together many activist groups across the city for a “decentralized” World Social Forum event in Toronto here at Ryerson called “Another World is Possible: Cultures of Resistance”.
- An international conference, “Building Power: Social and Political Transformations in Latin America” at Ryerson in April of 2007, with activists from all over Latin America sharing their experience at building new paths to equality and social justice with Canadian activists in a North-South dialogue.
- A lecture series in October 2002 with a talk by well-known British author, political commentator and editor of Red Pepper, Hilary Wainwright on Participatory Democracy.
- The Gindin Debates with a debate on copywright and the Internet in October, 2002. The debate was webcast on rabble.ca. These were debates among progressives designed to explore an issue, defining differences, but also seeking common ground…. ” ( sourced from : http://www.ryerson.ca/socialjustice/about/judy_rebick )
I mentioned above how certain so called ” activists ” , well paid , well people with the university systems actually open endorse domestic terrorists. Rebbick is , in my opinion just such a person . She had, as a guest speaker in one of her ” lectures ” a well known and highly dangerous domestic terrorist, Alex Hundert , someone who, at the time was legally forbidden to to speak at, or even attend gatherings were other like minded people would attend. Rebbick is nothing more than a loud mouthed , foul mouthed blow hart who has done nothing for decades , but uses her position and past reputation ( from decades past ) to inspire future generations to be the same blow hart neanderthal she has become. The thought of someone actually looking up to her is a sad sight in of itself .
Here is a video Of Rebbiks event at which Hundert , a convicted felon was speaking, against court ordered bail conditions :
This brazen act of openly flaunting a legal order showed the assembled that is was perfectly fine to break laws . This is a tool used by these so called ” social justice warriors ” as they call themselves to recruit new bodies into the fold. These highly dangerous criminals are placed on pedestals for the new, unsuspecting minds to soak in every word spoken. However, even before these events, the new student gets exposed , in very low keyed ways , to the ways of the radicals that openly target the new students.
Pamela Palmater is ” … a Mi’kmaq lawyer whose family originates from the Eel River Bar First Nation in northern New Brunswick. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at Ryerson University. In addition to her faculty appointment as an Associate Professor in the Department of Politics and Public Administration, Dr. Palmater holds the Chair in Indigenous Governance, and is also a member of the Yeates School of Graduate Studies, affiliated with the MA program in Public Policy and Administration…. “ She has been referred to as one who was a ” … trailblazing role model for young Indigenous women, planting seeds of change that are transforming Indigenous communities across Canada … “ ( sourced from : http://www.ryerson.ca/politics/about-us/personnel/faculty/palmater-pamela.html )
The above three depicted individuals obviously do not personally enact violence themselves , but they certainly do know the ones who do . We have already shown how Judy Rebick promoted and and even supported violent and convicted anarchists such as Alex Hundert , regardless of what legal orders were in place on him. Palmater supported to goons who burned police cars in New Brunswick , and Winnie Hg supports violent unions …. all three are : socialists ( communists ) What makes them dangerous is that they are in a position where they use academia to give an aura of legitimacy to what they believe in / their brand of so called activism . They use this to slowly shape young unsuspecting minds early on as to what is , in THEIR view, legitimate . They can teach hate , without calling it hate . They can teach how to avoid those who ask the ” wrong ” questions and thus, label them as ” troublemakers to the cause ” . Judy Rebick and Winnie Ng by their support for the occupy Toronto movement did a masterful job at this by their support for a totally illegal action and lending her name as a high profile supporter.
York university has its very own high profile supporter of the most violent of organization, OCAP . In fact she is not only an organizer with them, she is also married to another even higher profile organizer . I am referring to York University sociology professor Lesley Wood .
Lesley Wood ( above is the partner of the highly radicalized OCAP and No One is Illegal organizer MacDonald Scott ( below ) . Scott is a huge supporter of violence and is a highly respected anarchist within that community.
Orientation week at CFS affiliated universities has NOTHING to do with orienting the student to the university. It DOES, however, have everything to do with the well placed radicals who run the student unions, to bring these new students ” into the fold ” . These new students are, in many cases, away from home for the first time ever, are looking to make new friends and to find a way to fit in. Along comes the radical student union, and their leaders . who offer these new unsuspecting students exactly what they are looking for. Within this orientation week of activities, is a week dedicated to DIS-orientation . this is a stand alone week just for radicals , and radicals in the making. This is a week where the radical campus groups are introduced to the students, with high emphasis placed on supporting these groups. Withing these groups are organizations such as anarchist groups and of course OCAP . For those who need a reminder of what OCAP is about , here are some videos that show case the level of urban terrorism they openly advocate and engage in :
It goes downhill from here . This next video, while shot outside Canada, shows clearly what these so called ” social justice warriors ” are actively, openly advocating .
I have posted this video here to show exactly what is really being supported by the radical student unions . Of late ( meaning , over the past few years ) , there has been an even increasing , and escalating series of attacks against Israel , however, these attacks where also attacks of Jewish students here, through various protests and actions.
The issue around Israel may be polarizing, but one thing is very clear. Israel has the right to defend herself in the face of blatant terrorist attacks against the Jewish people there, daily . The video I posted above shows clearly how random these anti Jewish attacks are , as well, are directed at anyone who is Jewish. Here is an example of an incident that took place in 2009 at the University of Toronto, another very pro CFS run student union : ( sourced from : http://thentherewaslight.com/547_statemen-student-assaulted-at-u-of-t )
The student who was assaulted last night describes what happened in his own words:
A few people have asked me this morning about what happened last night at UofT. I attended the Israel Apartheid Week event with a few friends and was prepared to ask a couple questions. The girl sitting next to me asked a question to one of the speakers about the problems with Hamas’s Charter. The speaker answered the question by discussing occupation and Israel’s “racist” policies, etc, instead of actually addressing the issue of Hamas’s Charter and denial of Israel’s right to exist. A couple people in the crowd, including myself, shouted out to the speaker “answer the question!” (It is generally fair game at these events where there are more activists present than observers to request that the speaker focus on the question asked). At this point, one of the (probably unlicensed) private security guards hired by SAIA approached me from behind. When I turned around in my seat to look at him, he grabbed and squeezed the back of my neck and growled at me from about 10 inches in front of my face “you shut the fuck up! shut the fuck up!” At this point I kept my cool moved back and I was like “get away from me bro, don’t touch me!” One of the event organizers called for someone to ask the police standing outside in the hallway to come in to remove me for “causing a disruption” at which point I encouraged the police to come in to record the name and identity of the individual who assaulted me. I left the room promptly and reported the incident to the police. I will be filing a formal report later today with Metro Police.
I personally believe in freedom of speech and that students should be allowed to book lecture halls to present speakers who express radical, even extreme views. The presence, however, of (probably) unlicensed, private security gaurds wearing bullet proof vests and leather jackets who physicaly assault people who speak up against those radical, extreme views, must be confronted. SAIA must not be allowed to bring hired goons onto campus to intimidate people who oppose their views. I feel ashamed as a UofT alumnus.
Here is another independent version of the same event sourced from here at ( http://pamelageller.com/2009/03/pictures-live-reportage-from-toronto-university-shut-the-fck-up-or-hell-saw-the-jews-head-off-.html ) :
First posted here at Atlas: MUSLIM TO JEWISH STUDENT AT TORONTO UNIV: “Shut the F**ck up or he’ll saw his head off”.
Tonight at the U of T [Israeli Apartheid Week] event,
two Jewish students were assaulted by the Palestinian “Security” team
for being “disruptive” (asking a legitimate question “does Israel have
a right to exist”) The Palestinian “security” smacked a student in the
head and grabbed him by his neck, while another “security” officer told
a second Jewish student to “Shut the F**ck up or he’ll saw his head
off”…All of this was done in a crowded lecture room with over 100
I was there, there are no pictures, filming and taking pictures was prohibited (they seem to have a problem with the general public hearing what they say) it was reported to the police who chose (as usual) to do NOTHING…
Atlas has the full story from a courageous student who was there. Here are some
images from last night. I will not run the name of the student reporter. I don’t want them to get their skull cracked by the adherents of the religion of peace.
While last night had higher profile anti-Zionists and anti-Semites, what
with Naomi Klein and Sid Ryan, tonight had greater righteous indignation of the
Notably, with Jews visible in the audience, the audience was repeatedly
told from the dias that no photography or recording of any type was allowed by
anyone without “media clearance”.
On a number of occasions organizers tried to force me to depart with my
camera, though I had not taken even one shot. i told them that when everyone
with a cell-phone leaves or gives up their phone i will give up my camera
Later, during questions, organizers, ” security”, surrounded the area where
visible Jews were seated. A Jew asked a question: “Is Hamas’s charter racist “?
That question then become the focus of vitriole, the “security” closed in around
the Jews, security then started to push the Jews, then the dias demanded that
the Jew leave the room. The Jew replied out loud that he would not depart unless
told to do so by the Police. They came in from the lobby, and that ensued.
While this went on, I pulled out my camera and started to shoot. All manner
of people closed in around me, and tried to obscure my lens. I got a few shots,
and left for the lobby to catch the newly-evicted Jews’ fate. Organizers were
demanding my photos, and my name. They got neither, though it will be next to
impossible to be anonymous tomorrow.
For my efforts, a Police Sergeant came up to me and pushed me out the front
doors using his chest and flack-jacket against my chest. I asked him why i was
being pushed out the doors and he said that. “you know why”. Why? Because I look
Jewish? Because I was photographing the altercation started by the
islamo-fascists? OR, because he is brown ? Oh, but I can’t make that silly,
facetious, suggestion, all while being profiled myself ……….
As for the speakers: a communist Ryerson sociology prof; a racist,
hijab-wrapped, student VP of YFS ( York Federation of Students ), who should
likely better spend her time fighting female circumcision and misogyny in her
own ethnic community; a U of T student who’s family was from Haifa, and who’s
father was the student president at Bir Zeit in the 80’s and was imprisoned; a
Mohawk student espousing common objectives with supporters of Hamas
We had representation with flags and bodies outdoors, and kudos to all
those to came out.
Tomorrow will be worse at York.
We see here a clear pattern where the radicalization of students comes from several areas. we are seeing high profile people involved who are directly involved with students as professors . However, there is an even greater, more sinister group that directs these unsuspecting students into a life that started out as average and ordinary , but in the right setting and atmosphere, is quickly, methodically , cleverly molded into one were soon, the student is totally encapsulated with radicalism that nothing else matters. This is done by the heads of radical student organizations and the CFS , who, for the most part, lurk in the shadows , surfacing when they need bodies to voice THEIR cause.
Jewish students under ‘siege’ at York U
” …While anti-Israel protested called on York President Mamdouh Shoukri to cut academic ties with Israel, pro-Israel students tried to “drown out the hate with peace…”
” … Within the past two weeks, a Jewish student at York received a death threat against him and his family, while another Jewish student was allegedly assaulted by a member of an anti-Israel campus group. In two other incidents, a mob chanting anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist slurs trapped Jewish students inside the campus Hillel lounge, and an anti-Israel rally was held in Vari Hall rotunda. … ”
” … Jewish students are tired of being bullied by anti-Israel groups that intimidate people who don’t support them, and they responded by staging a counter-protest that attracted nearly 200 students. … ”
” … Students Against Israel Apartheid were there with their crew, the Tamil Tigers were there with their whole crew and Krisna Saravanamuttu, the YFS’ vice-president of equity, was there as well … ”
” …Among the slurs shouted by the mob were “Die Jew,” “Get the hell off campus,” “Go back to Israel,” and “F—ing Jew,” Hillel said in a statement. Michael Payton, a York student who witnessed the incident, posted a note on Facebook saying that he saw the YFS’ Saravanamuttu leading the mob. … “
So, just who exactly is Krisna Saravanamuttu ? At that time, he was an executive with the YFS and is not a full time staffer at the CFS .
At an unrelated Sri Lanken protest rally at Queens Park some months later , he re-affirmed his ” FULL SUPPORT : of the Tamil Tigers , another internationally recognized terrorist organization …. saying this as a representative of university students in Ontario who are members of the CFS .
So far , I have only touched upon some of the key players , however, there are many others. In part 3, I will continue this by showing what other university student union leaders have bee up to and what they either promote or support. As always, names and faces will be shown .
Stay Tuned …………………
