Racists of Odin are not welcome in Maple Ridge



The Maple Ridge News is reporting that "Word that the shadowy group Soldiers of Odin have been on two walks on Maple Ridge streets twice now is disturbing and disconcerting." No kidding. They are a Front for racists like the Heritage Front. Nothing more nothing less.

They run a bullsh*t propaganda campaign saying we are really just here to help people out at Christmas but that is not why they are here. You don't have to join the clan and wear a white hood to do that. Anybody can do so if that was their real intent.

They hold political demonstrations denouncing immigration. Well guess what, here you are immigrants dumbass. Oh you mean immigrants are OK just as long as they are white? Tell that to the Natives who were here first. We're all immigrants in Canada. We all came here from somewhere else.

Maple Ridge is the most predominately white area in Metro Vancouver. Yet it is full of drug related exploitation and violence. That exploitation isn't the result of immigrants, it's the result of you know who. The same Big Red Machine they want to kiss ass and be affiliated with. Shame on you. The article in the Maple Ridge News points out they denounce Islam on their facebook page. You might as well denounce Jews just like Hitler did because that is the exact same thing he did. These clowns are enemies of the Canadian Charter of Rights not supporters of it.

My next door neighbours are Muslims from Syria. They have four wonderful children and a brand new baby who is Canadian born. That makes her a Canadian citizen. They are under my protection. We are multicultural here. We have Polich families, Asian, Indo Canadian, African - everyone is welcome. If a Jewish family moved in they would be equally welcome. Racists sowing seeds of discord are not welcome so Get off of my lawn.

I do not support the Racists of Odin. I will not march with or be affiliated with them. End of story.

  1. Never heard of them before....founded in Finland apparently, there is a wikipedia entry about them. Goofy name. Does Odin know he has these soldiers?

    I think it's a mistake to dismiss these folks (apparently the Canadian "brand" has no connection to the EU org's, or o they say, but I think if we looked hard enough we could find one) simply as rascist because it misses the point of how you can wind up with groups like this. While there are undoubtedly some organizers who are habitual rascists, (the founder has a police record for it) that doesn't account for how you get a group of 50 of them wandering down the street chanting whatever. For that you need another motivation. To ignore that means not to completely understand the problem, and thereby be unable to fix it.

    1. Yeah like Hitler blamed the Jews for high unemployment rates. This blog does not support racism. This blog does not support the Racists of Odin.

  4. Ah, the racists have arisen. Now they need to go back into that hole they crawled out of.

    Odin, is some Norse god and that isn't Canadian, but then I suspect these racists are about white not immigration.

    In the U.S.A. they have Trump and his KKK supporters. In Canada we have KKKellie Leitch running for the federal Conservative Party and her odious platform.

    These soldiers of odiousness are not part of my Canada and do not support Canadian values. If they are trying to make race part of the Maple Ridge experience, perhaps they might forget it.

  5. Typical Progressivist smear tactics, "Trump and his KKK supporters". What fucking simple minded fool really believes that a billionaire real estate developer from Manhattan "has KKK supporters"? In the sense that Trump is going to control ILLEGAL (but to you and your ilk there's no such thing, we get that)immigration to the USA, and since due to the policies of past years it is next to impossible to immigrate to the USA if you are of white European descent, while bringing in loads of people who are not.....so we can say that the KKK, all some hundreds of them out of a population of millions and millions of people, would support that....so of course that makes "Trump and his KKK supporters". Like he asks them to or welcomes their "support".

    You need to crawl back in your hole as well, you are no better than these Odin idiots, just the other side of the same coin.

    1. I would hesitate to use the term "progressivist" - it would connote these people are progressive and that is a positive thing, therefore it must be good. (You can tell they made up this term to define themselves, like Saul Alinsky and "social organizing" as opposed to just being honest and stating communist agitating…

      Sadly, it would be the media who puts such ideas (of Donald Trump actively scheming with KKK members in secrecy (cue music effects that elicit a mood of horror and trepidation)) in various peoples' heads. Heads that should be used for critical thinking - not for criticism.

      This reminds me of what former Soviet prisoner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn stated in 1978 at the Harvard Commencement address:

      "A World Split Apart"

      The press can act the role of public opinion or miseducate it. Thus we may see terrorists heroized, or secret matters pertaining to the nation's defense publicly revealed, or we may witness shameless intrusion into the privacy of well-known people according to the slogan "Everyone is entitled to know everything." (But this is a false slogan of a false era; far greater in value is the forfeited right of people not to know, not to have their divine souls stuffed with gossip, nonsense, vain talk. A person who works and leads a meaningful life has no need for this excessive and burdening flow of information.)

      Hastiness and superficiality — these are the psychic diseases of the twentieth century and more than anywhere else this is manifested in the press. In-depth analysis of a problem is anathema to the press; it is contrary to its nature. The press merely picks out sensational formulas.

      Such as it is, however, the press has become the greatest power within Western countries, exceeding that of the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary. Yet one would like to ask: According to what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible? In the Communist East, a journalist is frankly appointed as a state official. But who has voted Western journalists into their positions of power, for how long a time, and with what prerogatives?

      There is yet another surprise for someone coming from the totalitarian East with its rigorously unified press: One discovers a common trend of preferences within the Western press as a whole (the spirit of the time), generally accepted patterns of judgment, and maybe common corporate interests, the sum effect being not competition but unification. Unrestrained freedom exists for the press, but not for readership, because newspapers mostly transmit in a forceful and emphatic way those opinions which do not too openly contradict their own and that general trend… Your scholars are free in the legal sense, but they are hemmed in by the idols of the prevailing fad. There is no open violence, as in the East; however, a selection dictated by fashion and the need to accommodate mass standards frequently prevents the most independent-minded persons from contributing to public life. There is a dangerous tendency to form a herd, shutting off successful development.

      In America, I have received letters from highly intelligent persons — maybe a teacher in a faraway small college who could do much for the renewal and salvation of his country, but the country cannot hear him because the media will not provide him with a forum. This gives birth to strong mass prejudices, to a blindness which is perilous in our dynamic era. An example is the self-deluding interpretation of the state of affairs in the contemporary world that functions as a sort of petrified armor around people's minds, to such a degree that human voices from seventeen countries of Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia cannot pierce it. It will be broken only by the inexorable crowbar of events."

      That was in 1978. How much more powerful as the media become here in the "West"? Just look at who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom!(?)

      Remember, there is a polar difference between freedom and license.

    2. The stereotype goes both ways. Some people say Communists vote for the NDP. If a Communist was to vote they would be more likely to choose to vote for the NDP than the Conservatives or the Liberals but that doesn't make the NDP Communist. Likewise, if a KKK member was to vote they would likely vote for someone right wing as opposed to someone left wing. That does not mean all right wingers are KKK members.

  6. of course not all right wingers are racists or KKK members. right wingers are people who have a conservative view point on such things as economics, education, law, purpose of a government, etc. Not all conservatives are conservative on all matters either.

    During Trump's campaign he clearly made, in my opinion, racist comments. This endeared him to such people as kkk members, racists, etc. Some of these more radical types then came out in support of Trump. During the campaign Trump did not disavow these people. it was not until after he was elected and challenged by some interviewers, such as Leslie stahl, of 60 Minutes, did he say anything on the subject,

    During the campaign Trump was asked how he was going to 'round up' illegal immigrants from Mexico. His response was, they would go from door to door, from job site to job site. For those of you not familiar with what went on in Europe prior to WW II, that is what the Nazi's did. You'll forgive a history major for being some what concerned about Trump's rantings.

    Now it is unlikely Trump will not start any of this. People living in the U.S.A. have guns. They might not go willingly. Then there is the slight problem of Republican business people who are not interested in loosing their low paid help and who would harvest the agricultural crops in California and the southern states.

    His appointment of Bannon is concerning because of his past activities.

    Trump's proposed appointment of Sessions is no less concerning. During the Reagan administration he was considered to racist to be a federal judge.

    Some of the people Trump said he had on a list for an appointment to the Supreme Court, well they're no prizes either. One of them, Pryor has taken anti LBGT positions.

    Trump isn't one of those people who is what I'd call "inclusive". But it worked to get him elected. it is doubtful he will deliver on any of his promises especially the one to make America great again and bring jobs back to America. When all those 'angry white" people find out he lied and does not make their lives better, things will not go well in the U.S.A. Those are the people I actually really do feel sorry for.

    1. Yes, not all Conservatives are racist any more than all NDPers are Communist. I do agree Trump said some horrible things which I do not endorse. That does not mean I can blindly endorse all of Hillary's criminal activity. Hillary lost the election so the Democrats need to choose a new candidate. It's as simple as that.

    2. Sigh.....you just can't help yourself can you? Customs and Immigration rounding up people who are illegally in the country so they can be deported is somehow similar to the Nazi's rounding up Jews to be sent to the death camps....LOL. Typical leftist disingenuity, attempt to smear your political opponents to discredit their actions. Can't play the game straight can you? How pathetic...

  7. To Be honest i am a huge TRUMP supporter !!
    I find racist clubs and fasit are wrong but if you look at our wages and if you ask trucking companies that did REAL well before the East Indians came they have brought in so much cheap labour that it's hard to survive. We all don't live in one house with 30 family members. Smart yes but that isn't our way of life for Vanadiens that have been born and raised from the 80's and 90's. I really think we should help Canada first than other countries. How can we bring in more people when Alberta and half of Saskatchewan Edmonton are hurting cause of the LIBERALS and NDP just pulling out of the oil and gas sector. We need to help out Canadiens first before we open up our wallets to people that haven't supported Canada with taxes and you wanna no some real numbers what do you think the oil and gas industry company and employees pay in taxes lol you wanna leave it up to the Craig's list adds that hire for 10-11 dollars an hour. We wouldn't be very far if we didn't have mining and forestry and oil and gas industry and that my friend is a fact

  8. These class of people,are not particularly well educated or traveled. So I tend to generally ignore them. A few of the thugs belonging to the gang,thought they might be able to crash an anti-racism rally in Vancouver a while back. Using their unsophisticated tactics of fear and intimidation, rather than education. Needless to say,they failed miserably and were arrested for assault and put on The Vancouver Police Radar. And the rally carried on without them, like they were never there. Not a very smart move on their part. They certainly do not have the support of the public on their side. And they never will,because they are too simple to understand, that in order to pursuade popular opinion. You need to gather trust and support of the majority. And that does not happen, by parading around in childish costumes pretending to be the big bad outlaw. One day they may learn. Until then,they should be watched closely by the police and public. To ensure they are not interfering with peoples rights to protest peacefuly. And otherwise live their lives free and believe what they may.

  9. East Indian's did not ruin The Transportation Sector. Right wing policies of Conservative Government's like Trump did. Hence de-regulation of the Trucking Industry in the 1980's by The Mulroney Conservatives. And The Liberals along with The NDP did not kill the oil and gas industry out west. The price of crude fell along with advancements in electric vehicles. Also The NDP support trade unions, who ensure that workers rights are protected and decent wages are kept. Trump supports de-regulation and anti union policies. He has aquired his wealth on the backs of the poor and still continues to do so.

  10. Everybody needs to be vigilant when they see these clowns making their rounds in our communities. Don't hesitate to call police when you see them. They need to be watched closely to make sure behave. If they can't police their members, I'm sure the local authorities will be more than happy to do it for them. A racist organization like this deserves some scrutiny.
