A few regulars of Vancouver's anti-lockdown protests attended a meeting for a Holocaust denial group (led by Monika Schaefer via Skype), then burned wooden blocks pretending they were books, gave Sieg Heils by a Third Reich flag, and joked about burning Jews #cancelculture
"Just like 1930s Germany" said neo-Nazi Brian Ruhe.

The wood blocks they burned gave satirical titles for books and "manuels." When someone pointed out the misspellings, one said it was for the Spanish people they hate.
The woman who joked about burning Jews is named Dianne and has been to some of the anti-lockdown protests with a sign containing modified excerpts from the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

The censorship is on neo-Nazi Brian Ruhe's end, not mine.
In a previous video Dianne mentioned attending the No New Normal's executive committee to plan their protests.

No New Normal is the original Vancouver anti-lockdown protest group (previously named No More Lockdowns and then absurdly Human Rights Movement).
Anti-Semitism has always been part of and tolerated by No New Normal. Brian Ruhe, an esoteric Hitlerist neo-Nazi was always involved in organizing with others aware of his beliefs. His involvement is partly why this group declined from its peak in May.

Vancouver's bigger anti-mask / anti-lockdown protests since then have been primarily organized by other groups such as Kulbaba's A Celebration of Rights and Freeedoms. While Kulbaba initially distanced his Surrey protests from them, his Vancouver protests have since collaborated
Monika Schaefer has attended at least two of No New Normal's (No More Lockdowns / Human Rights Movement) anti-lockdown rallies and gave a speech for at least one
Tony does say he would not Sieg Heil in video, but earlier on in the full video he says he "opened his eyes" to Holocaust denial and agreed with Ruhe saying Jews sank the Titanic. Tony has attended anti-lockdown rallies with Ruhe from the beginning.

Ruhe recently claims to have stepped away from No New Normal's executive committee recently, but paradoxically gave himself credit for helping organize the big Sept 13th rally which he was at.

Dianne was still at the most recent one.
Of note is that anti-lockdown and anti-mask activists are seeking nomination to run in the BC provincial election. Some used Sunday's No New Normal protest to announce seeking candidacy. I know all three have been aware of their Nazi problem previously (esp. Standfield).
Hugs Over Masks founder Vladislav Sobolev was also there to encourage them.

Anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Raoul Taylor van Haastert is also still involved with No New Normal and introduced many of the speakers.

Ottawa anti-lockdown rally tweets.

A poor family came all the way from Manitoba for this.

The rally is technically supposed to have begun by now and there's less than 100. It could pick up a little more later but will still be a disappointment for them.
Shawn Jason claims they were told police would not be arresting or ticketing today.
Paula Tucci of Stand Up Canada is speaking, encouraging the Bill of Rights. I was talking about last night, they're trying to find alternative documents to the Charter of Rights that they are finding isn't working, but not seeing their weaknesses

Today is the "big" anti-lockdown rally in Ottawa.

There will be some speakers from the international COVID conspiracy movement, but aside from that many figures from Canada's far-right are too.

Here I will highlight them, so no one can pretend this is about business or rights
Kevin J. Johnston - notorious Islamophobe and twice convicted libelist still facing hate crimes charges, also a willing propagandist for the Myanmar military to perpetrate Rohingya genocide denial.


Pat King - Yellow Vest / United We Roll leftover. Lately gained infamy for organizing groups to attack Black / Indigenous-led anti-racist protests in Alberta. Lately he's been promoting Sovereign Citizen ideology.
