Rex Murphy: Celebrating ‘diversity’ will only divide us, but celebrating Canada’s unity keeps us strong

Identity politics aligns with diversity, and it is emphatically not our strength. Identity politics is a flight from commonality and unity.

    “There is no doubt that diversity is a good thing”

    Sorry fella, don’t buy it.

  • This article is a very good one.

    Most New World countries have diverse populations.

    So?

    Wouldn’t tolerance be a better quality?

    What do we tolerate? Do we tolerate Islamist hatred of Jews? How does that make Canada better?

    Rex Murphy’s point on land is a more precise one. We are more tied to the landscape of this, the second biggest country on the planet.

    Happy Canada Day.

      You’re aware they’re only recently made “diverse” perforce and with no consent, right? Canada had a 97% European population in 1971. We “old stock” founders aren’t “united” with people who call us oppressors and want us exterminated off the planet and never will be. You must be crazy or think us merely stupid.

        You might attempt a reading of Rex’s article with your “I’m Thinking” button pushed. Otherwise you do come across as ‘stupid’.

        Cheers

          I did read it and it’s a mealy-mouthed article that pussyfoots around the actual issue at play here. As it is to be expected from the rank cowards and propagandists who call themselves journalists.

            Too, too gay … someone speaking from the depths of no experience. Do your siblings remind everyone you’re an only child?

            Have a nice day.

            Not an argument.

          • Minicapt

            There was nothing to argue about, thus my reply.

            Have a nice day.

      • Re-read my post. I never claimed that the shallow leftist ideal of “diversity” is a grand descriptor of this country.

    F*ck Trudeau. We can all see what the effects of ‘multiCULTuralism’ are, and it doesn’t take a genius to predict that things will only get worse as time goes on…

    I want my white ethno-state.

    Diversity divides. Minor differences can often be glossed over, but major ones, not so much. Cripes, why do you think the E.U. is falling apart. Even sometimes minor differences are enough to cause division.

      Conflict is simply part of human nature. After all, look at the history of conflict between the peoples of Europe – All white, all Christian (post-Roman empire, anyway…), all sharing similar basic values, but yet they fought one another. If people that similar in nature found reasons to fight each other, then how the hell can we expect to peacefully integrate primitive third world savages into Western societies??? It simply cannot be done!

        The Scottish clans come to mind as a good example.
