Canada's first flag called white supremacist symbol on Trudeau Liberal-funded 'anti-hate' site for kids

Canada's Red Ensign—the flag that Canadians fought under in both World War I and World War II while killing actual Nazis—is described as a white supremacist flag.

The Trudeau Liberals have launched an "anti-hate" toolkit titled "Confronting and Preventing Racism in Canadian Schools" that classifies Canada's first flag as a symbol of hate.

Antihate.ca, funded by a $268,000 federal grant, calls Canada's Red Ensign— the flag that Canadians fought under in both World War I and World War II while killing actual Nazis— a flag that "denotes a desire to return to Canada’s demographics before 1967, when it was predominately white."

"The Canadian Red Ensign is often used by the younger alt-right/Canada First movement but has been seen amongst older hate-promoting groups and individuals. Its usage in modern times is an indicator of hate-promoting beliefs," the booklet says.

Other memes deemed to be hateful include NPCs— from the video game term "non-playable character"— which is used to mock those who thoughtlessly wander through life and generally agree with every consensus, "Chad guy and Trad girl" which they say is used by "incel groups that depict the ideal for cisgender white men and women", Wojaks, and Pepe the Frog.

"Memes and other symbols of hate-motivated ideology are an important way that young people express their interest or affiliation. Some of them may come across as tongue-in-cheek rather than serious, but the 'trolling' orientation of online far-right culture is part of the way it appeals to new potential recruits. Humour
plays a central role as a recruitment tactic for youth for hate-promoting organizations," the booklet says.

In another part of the booklet says that a student arguing in favour of "a problematic politician or policy" such as "Trump's wall," is exhibiting behaviour that should be "treated carefully" and that "needs to be addressed" if it happens.

Anti-hate Canada's chairman, Bernie Farber, is a well-known propagandist and spin doctor who shares disinformation across social media platforms.

In February, Farber spread disinformation to disparage the Ottawa Freedom Convoy by tweeting an antisemitic flyer, saying that it was "taken by a friend in Ottawa at the Occupation. Apparently in plain sight."

The image shared by Farber was identical to one posted on two weeks earlier by someone in Miami, Florida. As pointed out by Jonathan Kay who said, "Wow Bernie, isn't it incredible that the picture your 'friend in Ottawa at the Occupation' sent you is identical to the photo posted on Twitter two weeks ago by someone in Miami, right down to the ceramic design in the background?"

Cleveland Jewish News confirmed the flyer was from weeks prior to the Ottawa events and completely unrelated to the Freedom Convoy.

For spreading misinformation, Farber was rewarded, as the Trudeau Liberals unveiled the new "expert advisory group on online safety" in March, which included Farber.
