History may never repeat itself 1:1, but the first days of the Trump regime are beyond worrying. Donald Trump has ordered his new administration to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by immigrants.
“To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.”
The decision to publish a list of immigrant crimes is reminiscent of the ‘Black crime’ listings on Breitbart News – the far-right website that until recently was run by Steve Bannon, who is now Mr Trump’s chief strategist.
The Trump (read Bannon) order is also reminiscent of Nazi Germany. In the 1930’s the German Nazi regime published similar lists of Jewish people in Germany to fuel anti-semitism in Germany.

As I write this, the solstice is almost upon us. I always think that this time of year takes on an almost dreamlike quality, and time seems to warp into something else so that the New Year and Imbolc seem like distant memories and like yesterday all at the same time.

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info On July 1, hate groups like La Meute and Storm Alliance have announced a demonstration in Montreal against illegal immigration. Not a good move, because we do not like racists and we do not like July 1st, the colonial Canada Day. The racists forget where they are about to step […]
