As the next federal election approaches, Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives might be asking themselves whether they can win without a strong NDP.
With the New Democrats and their leader, Jagmeet Singh, struggling in the polls, the answer to that question might not be the one the Conservatives want to hear.
A big part of the problem is Scheer himself. For instance Michelle Rempel has declared that a conservative government would end support for the UN’s migration compact which Justin is going to sign on to shortly.
Why won’t Scheer say this publicly?
I suspect his silence is due to the party’s ethnic voter calculus, a mass immigration policy plays well in those circles and it simply would not do to be seen as threatening to curtail Canada’s intake. Scheer’s silence also provides plausible deniability, Rempel’s statement can in future be easily dismissed as nothing more than a rogue party member speaking out of turn. Scheer’s support for unnecessary mass immigration is little different than Justin’s. It’s all about pleasing corporate Canada, depressing wages, balkanizing the electorate, keeping the serfs busy scrambling for public and private resources made scarce by the influx and garnering some votes along the way by rewarding local ethnic strongmen.
That’s how multiculturalism works in Canada, that’s what decides immigration policy for the rest of us and we all know how very un-Canadian it is to oppose diversity.
“You are looking at your own future here,” said Adnan Huskic, a scholar in politics and international relations at the School of Science and Technology in Sarajevo. “We have been dealing with the rise of nationalist populism for years.”
No. We’re dealing with bad immigration policy and toxic multiculturalism.
There is nothing racist about opposing illegal immigration.
Indeed, while polls show most Canadians are opposed to the stream of illegal immigrants flooding across our borders in Quebec — over 15,000 so far this year — it is the illegal part they oppose, not the immigrant part.
I’m guessing there will be far less opposition to the announcement this week by Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen that Canada will admit 350,000 immigrants annually by 2021 (up from 310,000 now).
Actually Lorne many people are upset at the Liberal effort at population replacement. They may not tell pollsters that, but the anger is there. Mass immigration is an anti-Canadian policy designed solely to benefit the corporate and political class. A Ponzi scheme that will reduce access to scarce public resources, depress wages and destroy the very welfare state they pretend it will prop up.Ever heard of automation Lorne?
Ask Democrats why they support open borders, and they will invariably respond: “Because we need immigrants to pay for our pensions.” This argument is a sham. The data are conclusive: immigration will not save America’s welfare system.
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic will not sign the UN’s Global Compact for Migration (GCM), Croatian newsportal Direktno reports.
The website bases the decision on a Facebook post by Croatian TV journalist Velimir Bujanec. He asked her position on the GCM after a lot of people we’re interested in her stance.
In the answer his editorial board received, President Grabar-Kitarovic literally states: ‘Be assured I will not sign the ‘Marrakech Agreement’, Bujanec writes on Facebook.
Macleans published this Liberal Party propaganda piece on the UN’s Global Compact For Migration co-authored by Ahmed Hussen. As far as I know the compact is non-binding but as we have seen the Liberal government has opened the immigration floodgates and will no doubt use it as an excuse to support their irresponsible immigration policy.
Debate in Europe framing illegal immigration from the third world as a problem is “dangerous”, the United Nations (UN) refugee chief has warned, insisting that the mass movement of peoples has been “a source of progress and prosperity since people first began to migrate”.
As Africa’s population doubles, a lot of them, whatever the circumstances, will becoming to Europe as economic migrants or as refugees. They will be coming – many of them and that is a good thing if they come into a place with an open mind and those economies are doing well because we will be senile. We will be senescent demographically. We’ll need their youthful energy to do stuff. So, that is just what the economic statistics tell you and the demographic data demands, you know… and demography is destiny.
The future of the West is touted as transnational progressivism (per John Fonte): a borderless, nation-less land-mass, across whose surface all humanity will be free to roam and free to consume wealth, stability and peace. The vanguard of this dystopia is multiculturalism. Few notice the monster hiding inside this political face of plurality — namely, the failed state.
The failure begins with hyper-ethnicity, or romanticized tribalism, whereby people cling harder to identity politics by becoming “billboards” of “their culture.” Such displays are not in the manner of dress or exoticism of food but in the habit of mind.
To be fair, this loyalism is required of minorities who are rewarded with power and position, if they live up to expectations by being hyper-ethnic. Again, as with all Leftist ideologies, a utopia is pursued while reality is ignored.
Maxime Bernier ignited his latest political firestorm when he used his Twitter account to criticize the “cult of diversity” perpetually promoted by the federal Liberals. If he had a valid point in there somewhere it was not helped by his unfair comments about “people who refuse to integrate into our society and want to live apart in their ghetto” that “don’t make our society strong.”
Most immigrants coming to Canada want to build a new life in a free and democratic society, escaping tyranny, prejudice or poor economic circumstances. Their local ethnic communities help them get adjusted to their new home. But it is nonetheless true that Canada faces a real test in maintaining national identity when so many people come from disparate backgrounds, and in avoiding problems that occur with ethnic conflict.
It seems that public conversations about immigration, diversity and especially multiculturalism are verboten in Canada. To mention the advantages of integration, on any tone, in any manner, smacks of colonialism, it seems.
When have we become fearful of confronting in the public square issues that are openly discussed in people’s homes and places of work? Why are a German chancellor and a British prime minister able to question the benefits of multiculturalism without being called racists while we go crazy when an elected Member of Parliament does the same thing in a series of tweets?
Spain must open its borders to more than five million migrants over the coming decades in order to fund the pension system, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has declared.
According to the organisation, which is led by arch-globalist Christine Lagarde, the Mediterranean nation must welcome 5.5 million migrants before 2050 in order to ease dependency ratio woes which can result from an ageing population.
On Sunday evening, Quebec MP Maxime Bernier posted a six-tweet thread on ‘extreme multiculturalism’ that has set off a political maelstrom in Canada, a country that seems no longer accustomed to hearing the truth from its political leaders.
Just like that, with the snap of a finger, a moral panic washed over the chattering classes. Someone said something about diversity and multiculturalism. And it was something that didn’t entirely fall within the officially sanctioned boundaries of how we’re supposed to talk about those issues.
Sound the alarm! Man the ramparts! Wrongthink brigade, attack!
