At some point in the past few decades, the dominant theory behind American policing became that the cops should be drawn from the same ranks as the ethnic groups that made up most of the violent criminals. What started by happenstance, when the Irish were disproportionately represented on both sides of the equation, became codified by the 1970s as police departments around the country hired more black and Hispanic officers in order to “represent” the force to the tough neighborhoods they were patrolling.
The flaw in this notion, however, was almost immediately apparent, as the Martin Scorsese movie, The Departed, so vividly illustrates. It’s easy to get (allegedly) infiltrated…
Criminal syndicates that control chemical factories in China’s booming Guangdong province are shipping narcotics, including fentanyl, to Vancouver, washing the drug sales in British Columbia’s casinos and high-priced real estate, and transferring laundered funds back to Chinese factories to repeat this deadly trade cycle, a Global News investigation shows.
The flow of narcotics and chemical precursors — and a rising death count in western Canada caused by synthetic opioids — is driven by sophisticated organized crime groups known as Triads.
The legacy of the most famous British speech of the last half-century
Fifty years ago this month, the British conservative Enoch Powell gave his “Rivers of Blood” speech about immigration, which has become as legendary as it is infamous. A classics professor who once aspired to become viceroy of the British Raj, Powell was one of postwar Britain’s most intelligent conservatives. Romantic about British traditions and deeply skeptical of the emerging European superstate, he would become a mentor to the young Margaret Thatcher. But instead of forcing immigration onto the agenda and propelling Powell toward Conservative Party leadership, the Rivers of Blood speech pushed the issue to the fringe and Powell’s career into the ditch. Powell’s fall became a rallying cry for racists and immigration a wedge issue for Europe’s populist “new right” parties, thus preventing candid discussion of policy.
“A week after the gassing of Syrian children, Liberal MP Iqra Khalid brought greetings to one of Assad’s worst apologists on behalf of Justin Trudeau. Canada needs an answer why this happened,” Conservative Senator Linda Frum posted to social media, leading a charge that was later echoed by MPs in Question Period.
I wish there would be serious consequences resulting from this latest display of Islamist triumphalism but based on my dealings over the years with Canada’s Muslims and their useful idiot apologists I doubt Khalid or Trudeau will suffer anything more than a fleeting sense of discomfort.
Sadly nothing has changed, in fact it grows worse every year as the Islamists continue their long march and infiltrate our political parties and institutions.
And now we’ve reached the point where our Prime Minister and his handlers call us racists and Islamophobes for pointing out that Islam is a violent supremacist cult incompatible with our nation’s values.
But what else can we expect from a useful idiot who consorts with Mohammedan 5th Columnists?
Fifty years after Enoch Powell’s notorious “Rivers of Blood” speech, a large minority of Britons appears to believe that multiculturalism has failed and different communities generally live separate lives.
A YouGov poll of 5,200 people to be released tomorrow and commissioned by anti-fascist group Hope Not Hate, found that 43% predicted relationships between different UK communities will deteriorate over the next few years compared to 14% who feel things will improve. More than two-thirds of Conservative Leave voters said they believed multiculturalism wasn’t working.
Nick Lowles, chief executive of Hope Not Hate, said: “There is clearly much work to do. Powell’s speech led anti-racism campaigners to mobilise – the anniversary of the speech must do the same.”
Be aware that Hope Not Hate the outfit that commissioned this poll is all about Hate, hate for anything right of Corbyn.
Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory.
With the votes counted, Europe Elects is sharing stats which show Fidesz, the party founded by Prime Minister Orbán while he was a young anti-Communist dissident, has won not merely a decisive majority but an outright super-majority, along with minor allied parties — allowing changes to the national constitution.
Fully qualified applicants for employment with Washington State government agencies are being clobbered by the diversity cudgel. Even if they congenially comply with most diversity principles, they may conscientiously object to the state’s sanctuary status, which receives much of its rationale from diversity dicta. They should not be compelled to sacrifice their American conscience, nor surrender their love of a country with borders, to get a government job. There is no room for illegal aliens under the diversity umbrella.
The Belgian Islamic party Partij Islam is set to run candidates in 28 municipalities in the upcoming Belgian municipal elections, and have declared their intention to create an Islamic State in which women and men have to ride in separate buses.
Starting Tuesday, all lead caretakers at the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) will spend one day learning how to be more diverse and inclusive when they clean their schools.
On the hot seat this month for the board’s mandatory “deep diversity” (indoctrination) sessions (there are five being held) are 230 lead caretakers, according to board spokesman Christina Choo-Hum.
A description provided by a board staffer who contacted me about this mishegos (Yiddish for “nonsense”) notes that “deep diversity” training will teach participants how to “detect, name and reduce” their “unconscious bias” and to understand how “stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination are a combined result of history, socialization as well as brain processes.”
If there’s a way to waste your tax dollars Canada’s Diversity Nazis have found it.
Supporters argue that multiculturalism assists in the integration of immigrants, removing barriers to their participation in the host country’s life and making them feel more welcome, leading to a stronger sense of belonging and pride.
Critics argue that it promotes ethnic centers, or ghettoization and balkanization, and encourages members of ethnic groups to look inward, and emphasize differences between them and their host country rather than shared rights or identities.
Supporters of multiculturalism maintain that there is little evidence in Canada of the deep social segregation experienced in parts of Europe. However, the number of visible minority neighbourhoods in Canada’s three largest cities have apparently increased from 6 in 1981 to 254 in 2001.
