Watch the above video through the link, at about 5:00 Sandra Solomon and Ronny Cameron joke about “donating bananas to Black Lives Matters”.
You know those kind of people who freak out when you call them racists, but they say racist things all the time? Yeah, this is the kind of people we’re dealing with.
Meet Ronny Cameron, failed metalist turned xenophobe who is now trying to rally a conglomeration of far right wing fascist groups, his latest attempt failed on May 6, 2017 when the fascists were unable to march due to a strong counter-demonstration.
Ron runs a band called Verum. Here’s their facebook page.
Ronny also sometimes does some TTC busking, usually sighted at Spadina.
Aside from being racist he has shown classist tendencies. Take this excerpt from the above-linked profile article:
“This one time, there was a panhandler who was sitting in my station, near me. I asked him politely to leave, and he said no. I told him I was going to call security and he wouldn’t listen; he was really drunk. So I went and told the collector, and he made the call to the constables. By the time the constables got there an hour and a half later, the panhandler had already left. Soon after the constables left, he came back. I was really frustrated with him, he was really cutting into my business, and it really bothers me that people are giving out money to people who are just going to spend it on drugs or alcohol. I finally went over and took his sign away from him.”
Like a standard bigot, he enjoys punching down at people who he feels are beneath him.
He is also infatuated with the Jewish Defense League (you know that extremist group that recently beat up a 50 something year old professor because he was Arabic?). I guess he thinks he’s fighting extremist, yet he hasn’t looked in the mirror lately, or at any of the scum he’s affiliating himself with.
Keep it classy, Ronny, and good luck with your music career in one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
But wait, there is more. On May 6, 2017, the day of the demonstration that Ronny Cameron attempted to organize there was an incident. Eric Brazau, who spent time in jail for criminally harassing a family with small children, was present at the demo. You can see him in the video attempting to speak when Ronny Cameron comes up to him and grabs his mic. It is not quite clear if Cameron is trying to take the mic and cut him off, or if he is trying to get Brazau to put the mic closer to his mouth, but for some reason Eric Brazau flipped out and punched him in the face. View the video below:
Fascists being violent? Get out!
We finish this entry with an open appeal to Ronny Cameron:
You are a young guy so we feel you deserve a second chance to not totally destroy your reputation. You are affiliating with some very violent individuals here, extremely violent people as you no doubt realize by now. These older trolls have had a lifetime to change their ways and they only worsened. Stop this now. There is still time to educate yourself to not hate people who are different than you, to learn the nuances of the real complicated world and not be swayed by simplistic rhetoric. Please, not just for all the people in Toronto who don’t deserve to be harassed because of their ethnicity and/or religion or religious background, but for yourself. You don’t want to end up like these haters. If you stop this organizing we will take down this page.

Ronny Cameron is seemingly freaking out at the other anti-immigrant bigots, clash of egos. This is what happens when people who have such deluded notions of themselves and the world collide:
