Canada’s thought police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Zeiger:
“Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Gabriel Sohier Chaput, a man who is alleged to be Zeiger, Canada’s most influential neo-Nazi and a key player in the alt-right.
According to the Montreal Gazette , court records show that police obtained the warrant at the end of October—the only count listed is willful promotion of hatred which can carry with it two years of jail time. The whereabouts of Sohier Chaput is currently unknown. His identity became known when anti-fascists supplied reporters with information connecting Sohier Chaput to the infamous neo-Nazi.
Zeiger has for years been one of the most influential voices within the far-right globally making key contributions to both the ideology and the ironically detached tone of the community. Keegan Hankes, a research analyst for the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, told VICE Canada that it’s hard to overstate the influence Zeiger had within some of the most extreme circles of the far-right.
“He was definitely a big player,” said Hankes. “He was one of the most recognizable names at the Daily Stormer, he also, of course, was a prolific content producer having a wealth of written and recorded materials that were very well respected.”
Zeiger was an extremely active user and moderator on the now-defunct Iron March forum (which has been linked to a wave of white supremacist terror) and edited their online zine Noose. He also was instrumental in the resurgence of the ideas of James Mason—editing Siege, a collection of publications and newsletters by Mason that has been incredibly influential in the neo-Nazi scene. Siege encouraged lone-wolf acts of violence; Hankes described Siege as “very, very extreme texts” and added that “the fact he played a role in rehabilitating that and bringing it to a wide audience is very significant.” He also authored several of his own books, one, “Hammer of the Patriot,” is well-read and respected in these circles. …”
This comes on the heels of Azzmador’s indictment in Charlottesville.
We have our disagreements with the Stormer, but that pales in comparison to our opposition to this “journalist” led witch hunt. In Zeiger’s case, Antifa teamed up with the Montreal Gazette to dox Zeiger, and the Orwellian sounding group “Canadian Anti-Hate Network” and the SPLC are apparently working with the Canadian police and courts to have him jailed for thought crimes.
What is the goal here? Are they trying to make the Stormer look sympathetic? As with Tommy Robinson in the UK, lots of people are going to look at this and conclude that the Stormer is less of a problem than this tyrannical police state which laughably advertises itself as being part of the “Free World.” Is the Stormer a greater threat to our rights and security than these budding little Bolsheviks?
