…For the West and its security, the risks now involved in this process are enormous. A decisive change in the demographic patterns of long-term strategic Western allies in favor of large-scale Muslim immigration, where anti-Semitism is endemic, will have its consequences. The situation of Jewish communities around the world, already worsened by rising anti-Semitism, will deteriorate further. In a recent comment in the Jerusalem Post, Manfred Gerstenfeld described Malmö, a typical European city with high Muslim immigration, as the capital of European anti-Semitism.
Much of European academia and media still seem to be in a state of shock-induced paralysis, unable to come to terms with the challenges posed by Islamism and Muslim anti-Semitism almost two decades after 9/11 and almost half a decade after the Paris 2015 terror attacks. But these aspects are well-known to any serious analyst of developments in the region, and they are often glossed over in the call for “radical diversity.”
Goodbye “Welcome Culture”? Part II
…The overview of the failed, foiled, and completed terror attacks in 2017 per EU member state and per terrorist group affiliation, as reported by the European Commission, speaks a clear language about the danger of jihadist violence on European soil and justifies our emphasis on the study of predictable societal patterns and Islamist violence in the wake of the massive influx of refugees to Europe since late summer 2015.
Of the 205 terror attacks reported in Europe in 2017, 137 (66.83%) were separatist in character, while 33 (16.10%) were jihadist, 24 (11.71%) were left-wing, and 5 (2.44%) were right-wing. In other words, there were 6.6 times more jihadist terrorist attacks than right-wing terrorist attacks in Europe.
…The number of job vacancies hasn’t meant significant wage growth over the same three year period, and that’s difficult for labour economists to explain.
“If there are truly job vacancies and labour shortages … then what should happen is employers should be competing for the scarce workers, and the way they compete is through offering them higher wages,” said Skuterud.
“So the cynical view of what this program is about is that it’s always in the interest of companies to be in a world in which there are scarce jobs and plentiful workers, as opposed to scarce workers and very few jobs.”
When a labour market is full of workers, prospective employees will compete for jobs by offering to work for less.
This type of immigration program would help foster that sort of environment, Skuterud said.
An immigration scam to depress wages? Imagine my shock.
Douglas Todd: Immigration won’t replace Canada’s aging workforce
“The question is: Why do we need immigration? Well, five million Canadians are set to retire by 2035. And we have fewer people working to support seniors and retirees,” Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said recently, echoing the watchwords of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The Liberals repeatedly maintain higher immigration will, as Hussen says, “help us to ease the great challenges of the coming years, such as the slowing labour force growth and labour shortages linked to Canada’s aging population.”
But do the minister’s claims check out?
The short answer is: Not really. Leading Canadian economists say the Liberals’ claim that higher immigration levels will offset the aging of Canada’s workforce is, at the least, extremely exaggerated.
The folks pushing Justin’s mass immigration agenda do not give a rat’s ass about you or Canada.
Don’t make election about immigration, corporate Canada tells political leaders
OTTAWA — Big business leaders worried about Canada’s aging demographics have been urging political parties to avoid inflaming the immigration debate ahead of this fall’s federal election.
The head of the lobby group representing chief executives of Canada’s largest corporations said he’s already raised the issue with political leaders who are shifting into campaign mode for the October vote.
With signs of public concern about immigration, Business Council of Canada president and CEO Goldy Hyder said he’s promoted the economic case in favour of opening the country’s doors to more people.
Mass immigration – Cui Bono?
Hyder said he’s personally part of a group called the Century Initiative, which would like to see Canada, a country of about 37 million, grow to 100 million people by 2100.
The group was co-founded by Hyder and several others, including two members of the Trudeau government’s influential economic advisory council — Dominic Barton, global managing director of consulting firm McKinsey & Co., and Mark Wiseman, a senior managing director for investment management giant BlackRock Inc. Hyder was a business consultant before joining the business council and was once a top aide to federal Progressive Conservative leader Joe Clark.
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Justin Trudeau’s one and only move to deal with the influx of asylum seekers crossing the border is nothing but a political gesture.
This after all is the same PM that wants to use the justice system for political reasons in the case of SNC-Lavalin. He’s also the same PM that just forced Public Safety to alter a terrorism report on threats to Canada to appease certain factions of the Sikh vote in Canada, listening to political pressure rather than our intelligence agencies.
The curse of identity politics and ethnic vote banks in Canada has become the most racist aspect of our country’s slow and steady slide into the moral bankruptcy of our political values.
Thirty years ago, when we landed as immigrants at Mirabel Airport in Montreal, the 1988 federal election was just around the corner. It didn’t take long for me to sink my teeth into the politics of the land. Despite the fact we couldn’t vote yet, our house had a sign on the front yard “This Time It’s Ed”, the slogan of the NDP’s dynamic leader in the 1980s, Ed Broadbent.
OTTAWA (Reuters) – Maxime Bernier, the founder of a right-wing party running in Canada’s October federal election, said on Monday that Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s warnings about the dangers of white supremacy were an attack on an “entire ethnicity.”
…His comments on Monday were in reference to last week’s move by the Trudeau government to change a report on terrorist threats in Canada that was first published last year to no longer explicitly mention “Sikh extremism.”
“We’re told the word Sikh was removed because ‘entire religions should never be equated with terrorism.’ And yet, (Trudeau) has been warning us for weeks about the dangers of ‘white supremacy,’ equating an entire ethnicity with terrorism,” Bernier wrote on Twitter and Facebook.
Justin Trudeau’s “white supremacy” bender is a desperate appeal to his base ahead of the coming election designed to curry favour with Sikh extremists and his Islamist constituency. Additionally this will sell well in the Annex and other progressive ghettos. Liberal-left white progressives are race flagellants who unpack their “privilege” in order to deceive themselves and reinforce their imagined moral superiority.
Trudeau governs as a sociopath opportunistically playing up or sacrificing any principle, well anything for that matter, convenient to his ends. It’s nothing new, previously he attacked pro-life Christians to demonstrate his alleged feminist bona fides.
The Liberal Party uses mass immigration, multiculturalism and diversity to divide and conquer and now we see the intended results – Tribalization & 3rd world politics are the new normal in Canada.
On the upside Trudeau has just had his “Deplorables” moment.
OTTAWA — Details about the government’s new anti-racism strategy continue to be shrouded in secrecy after at least $845,000 was spent on 22 closed-door consultations across Canada.
Documents tabled in the House of Commons show all the invitation-only meetings were held between October 2018 and early March in cities including Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Calgary, and Vancouver. The last one was held in Iqaluit, Nunavut on March 4.
I would love to see the “secret feedback” from these consultations. The Liberal Party’s stock in trade is hate. They’re currently conspiracy mongering on social media with a blitz warning of the growing threat posed by “white supremacy”. Its purpose is to fire up the LPC base with hate for anyone opposed to Trudeau and it will sell well in the last urban bastions of LPC strength. If the LPC hope to hold on to power they need to pump up their base of guilt ridden white liberals, the ususal suspect ethnic vote blocs and the SJW’s of the only industry they have actually managed to grow – Hate Mongering.
Political influence in America is garnered through a number of mechanisms — campaign contributions, social media, YouTube, news channels, and authority from moral figures such as the church, to name a few. However, the dominant force in American politics for the last two decades has been economic warfare against American citizens.
This economic warfare has two primary components; the use of government to economically favor one group over another; and the collusion of immigrant groups to economically inhibit Americans who oppose replacement migration.
…What is new about the New Zealand attack is that the terrible plague of tribal score-settling and grievance mongering is now in the West. Not that the West is a stranger to ethnic conflict: the Holocaust, Generalplan Ost, Holodomor, and Polish and Armenian genocides are bywords in themselves. But it was widely assumed that WW2 had seen these off (until Bosnia) and the risks of multiculturalism and mass immigration could be mitigated by immunosuppressive strategies like political correctness and demographic replacement, of which the EU project is a textbook example.
Yet events since 2016 indicate that this strategy is failing despite the suppressants. Pressure from the root causes — whether European colonialism, Islamic slave trading, 9/11, the War on Terror, multiculturalism, populism — are burning through the medication.
It’s the usual bilge, Trump supporters are Nazis but I’ll advocate for virtually the same policy on account I’m not coarse and common and therefore morally and politically superior to those nasty lowlifes.
That however is a step too fascist for the open borders Wokentariat and Frum is being lashed on Twitter, below is a sample.
“What outrages our opponents the most is the fact that in our Constitution we have written that Hungary has Christian roots; that here there is no place for multiculturalism; that a child has the right to a mother and a father; and that our nation has the right to defend its borders – which are also the borders of the European Union,” the Hungarian Prime Minister observed.
U.S. robot use, up by a whopping 16 per cent last year, is at record highs; U.S. unemployment, meanwhile, is at 50-year lows with people abandoning welfare for work. American wages are rising too. And all of this is happening largely for the same reason. President Donald Trump’s tariffs, opposition to multilateral trade and immigration policies have tightened labour markets, letting workers bid up wages while spurring industry to find alternatives to the low-cost migrant labour it has relied upon in decades past.
The end of the mass immigration Ponzi scheme? That’s a pleasant thought but in Canada mass immigration is the heroin of our political class. Our politics reflect the weaponization of multiculturalism and greed. In order to buy the votes assured by local ethnic strongmen and appease the business poobahs our politicians will support any scam to swamp our borders. FYI – You will be called a racist by your government for having read this.
