This summer I was really busy so I haven't had the time to write a lengthy thread about Diagolon but I have continued to monitor their social media and watch their live streams and take notes. Now that I have more time, their move towards more open white nationalism and Neo-Nazism needs to be written about.
A few months ago, Jeremy Mackenzie started using an audio clip of a loon call at various points during his live stream. Usually when describing conspiracy theories that he subscribes to.
Here Jeremy describes a "cadre/cable" that controls things while using the loon call.
This has resulted in a few people saying things that I believe should be considered hate speech. Included is a video edited by Dan Sleno that has Derek Harrison stating that "loons" "have to go back". This is a reference to a video that Jeremy made about immigrants where he also stated "they have to go back". Also see some of the loon references being used in Diagolon Telegram chats.
He also states that they are like Nazis which.... well no disagreement there. Derek states that we've gone further than Weimar Germany and that the pendulum will swing back. Not hard to figure out what he means by that.
Alex also refers to people of European descent as "Aryans".

Alex and Jeremy brush off the claims that Active Clubs are extremist groups but the concept was created by a white supremacist named Robert Rundo, who is currently facing charges in the US for conspiracy to riot. The Canadian Active Clubs are a recruiting front for the Hammerskins which is a Neo-Nazi street gang.
According to the Canadian Anti-Hate Network:
"In Canada, the Hammerskins have been in numerous street brawls, implicated in an assault on members of the media, and one of their members was accused of lighting a man on fire in the streets (before being cleared of all allegations). Internationally, huge swaths of members have been swept up in police raids for accusations of violence, another opened fire at a Sikh temple in the US, and their members are responsible for multiple murders."So these aren't just a group of conservatives looking to be active and healthy as Jeremy and Alex would have you believe.
Both of them have started sharing Active Club posts on Telegram.
As a result of this the Diagolon chat rooms are becoming a recruiting ground for Active Clubs.
Saxon Murray encourages people to join Active Clubs.

The members of the Diagolon community will claim that everything they're doing is just one big joke but it's pretty hard to defend that position when you're openly recruiting for violent Neo-Nazi street gangs.
