Parti Québécois’s 2013 Charter of Values was a terrific opportunity for all Quebec patriots to express, in a formal document, the values upon which our society stands. Westerners, living among themselves for centuries as white and Christian individuals, took those values for granted without taking the time to identify and define them. Now, as the floodgates of immigration have been opened, these values are being challenged, questioned by other beliefs and ways of thinking. If successful, to my knowledge, the Charter of Values would have been the first official document adopted by a state legislature to define and defend those values we all share and cherish (besides the American Constitution, of course).
Unfortunately, there was a lot of opposition to the Charter. Various groups ranging from islamist groups, leftist organisations, freedom of expression lobbyists, judicial think tanks and legal experts, etc, expressed their opposition to the document each for their own reasons. On the other hand, a lot of groups and people supported the Charter in a way that was significant. But the most surprising of all came from the Conservative Party of Canada. The party denounced the Charter vehemently and in the process attacked the Parti Québécois itself for having crafted it and presented it. No need to say that it stroke a huge blow to the Parti Québécois and to the project of the Charter of Values. Eventually, the Parti Québécois lost the election on the following spring and the Charter of Values died with its defeat.
Following the stand taken by the Conservative Party of Canada against the Charter of Values, I decided at that time to stop blogging in English completely for doing it solely in French. That was my own way to protest politically against what seemed to me as something completely unfair. You see, being myself a Canadian and knowing a few things about Canadian politics, I knew and understood that the Conservative Party of Canada was doing that not to compromise their votes from the various communities of immigrants, especially Muslims. They played the « racism » card against the Parti Québécois, thinking that they would look nice and keep or get their votes at the next federal election. They went on full seduction mode, thinking that immigrants would literally rush to the voting booths to have the privilege and distinction to cast their ballots for the Conservatives.
And what happened exactly on election night in the fall of 2015? Canadians voted largely…for the Liberals of Justin Trudeau. The leader of the Conservatives, Stephen Harper, resigned. You see, what we call the Right or the conservatives, is not a unified front, nowhere in the world I would say. And a pattern that I have noticed through the years is that conservatives or right-wingers have the tendency to shoot themselves in the foot, figuratively speaking. The Charter of Values was a tremendous opportunity for all patriots to get a victory on defending their values and having adopted it by a state legislature. This would have created a precedent, a canvas, a blue-print, a model, for other legislatures in the western world to draft their own document or bill to do the same. By sabotaging the efforts of the Parti Québécois to adopt the Charter of Values, Canadian Conservatives not only hurt Québec patriots but hurt patriots worldwide. It was a huge blow to all nationalists.
I am absolutely appalled and astonished by the lack of political maturity and vision of a lot of so-called « professional » politicians. They don’t have a large scale and a long-run vision. They think only of what is good for the next two weeks or for the next election. They don’t understand that a short term loss can’t transform itself into a big victory in the middle and in the long term. Helping the Parti Québécois present and adopt its Charter would have allowed the Conservative Party of Canada to craft its own version of a charter, bill and/or policies to identify and defend the values of Canada, the way they see them appropriate for the country.
You see, a lot of the so-called right-wing or conservative parties think that they can win the hearts and minds of immigrants and refugees. They don’t understand that no matter how hard they try, left-wing parties will always propose something more appealing: more money, more governmental hand-outs, more advantages, more family reunification, more anything. Figuratively, to sum things up, you could say that the Left will always have sexier legs than the Right. And that’s precisely what the Conservatives in Canada don’t understand. And to be fair, I am not sure the Parti Québécois understand it either. Those two parties will continue to loose elections until the end of time unless they realize that we are at a crossroads. Either we do what it takes to survive and win the war against our enemies or we accept the idea of being replaced by populations from the third-world and simply die out of existence.
I am not very optimistic. I saw the news of the events at Charlottesville today. Again, the media is completely distorting the facts, as usual. Even Fox News, that I like very much, gets it wrong. The media is putting the blame on the patriots for what happened but think about it for a second. We are being invaded from the four corners of the Earth, we are being attacked by a hostile religion, islam to name it, that wants to impose us its moral code and obligations, drug cartels are destroying our communities, our history is being rewritten to erase our achievements and great victories and, on top of that, we have to deal with nuclear threats and cyber attacks coming from rogue regimes such North Korea, and we are supposed to believe that it is the fault of patriots?
As long as we will continue to accuse ourselves of the world’s problem and take the blame for everything, nothing will change. Our adversaries see that and they prey on our sens of guilt, on our fear, masochism and self-deprecation. You see, we suffer from Stockholm Syndrome. We have come to identify with our aggressors and raptors and now we defend them at our own peril. If we don’t correct that, it is true, that we will disappear. I would like to finish with a question: According to you, how long will it take for North Korea to launch a missile or drop an atomic bomb on our heads? And I guess that, if it happens, it will be the fault of the patriots, right? Because, in the end, so goes the narrative, it is always the fault of the patriots…
