The Trump Administration is getting ready to begin the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico (some might say that a wall between the United States and Canada would be needed as well but that is a subject for another day…). Also, discussions are going on Capitol Hill about certain programs dealing with immigration and refugees such as DACA for example. In this context, I think it is important to have a complete view and understanding about the problem we are facing and the solutions necessary to solve it. There are four layers to the ‘wall’ the way I see it. First, President Trump wants to build a physical structure between the United States and Mexico, to prevent illegal immigration and the flow of drugs. Good. I support the idea. But we have to realize that the problem is more complex than that. The ‘wall’ as to be understood in a larger manner in order to be effective. The very perspicacious and astute Michael Cutler, a former INS agent, has brought to our attention over the years the question of the ports of entry into the United States. In effect, airports, seaports and border crossings are important vectors of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. So, secondly, unless these ports of entry are secured correctly as well in a way that is satisfactory, the wall will remain insufficient to really protect the country. Also non-physical elements such as programs like E-Verify and others can give a hand to secure the United States. Thirdly, the question of cybersecurity remains central in any security strategy. Since a cyber attack can happen anywhere anytime, the construction of a protective wall must be accompanied by a capable, strong, resilient and effective network of cybersecurity protections, methods and safety mesures in order to support the important investment that will be made in the south of the country. Everybody understands that if a strong border wall is built, invaders and criminals will simply look for weaker spots to attack the United States, physical or cyber.
And fourthly, the question of the virtual or psychological wall is important as well. I think it is the great Chinese military general Sun-Tzu that said that wars are won in the minds before being won on the battlefield. Enemies of the western world know that pretty well, I think. Ideologies have a strong impact on people and they pave the way very often for the quiet conquest of territories. Since a couple of years, we have seen the deployment of islamist militants to impose Shariah Law on our populations. Some have used guns to do it, others have used words. The bottom line is that the ideology of Shariah Supremacism has a strength and a power that is a threat to all western countries and nations. A national security strategy must include that in order to be effective and President Trump seems to be inclined to do just that. Also, ideologies are not the only things that fall under the category of the virtual or psychological. Language is a very potent tool of conquest too. Very often the conqueror will try to suppress the use of the language of the conquered, either at work or in the public space. The slow and progressive diminution of the language in use by a people brings with it the disappearance of the people itself speaking it. It is a very effective way to wipe out a whole nation without using guns or bombs.
Which brings me back to the physical wall…The wall between the United States and Mexico will stop the uncontrolled migration to the United States and Canada of people from around the world but especially from South America. In last years, listening to conservative media in the United States, I heard many times that South Americans, referred to currently as latinos, are creating problems in the many businesses where they work in the United States. We are getting reports that they refuse or can’t speak English there. From what I see here in Canada, it is the same thing. As soon as they reach a certain number of Spanish-speaking employees in one enterprise, they stop speaking English (or French in the Province of Quebec) to use Spanish instead. Some might say that in the era of diversity and multiculturalism it is not a problem. I think it is if we understand the real nature of warfare. The imposition of a language on a people brings about the conquest of this people. This problem has metastasized so much in the United States that certain elected officials have begun to talk openly about making English the official language in certain states of the Union if not in the entire country.
The Province of Quebec has been a precursor in these matters. In 1977, the National Assembly adopter Bill 101 to protect the status of the French language in Quebec and make it both the official language of the province itself and the language of the work place. At the time, it was made specifically to protect the population of Quebec from the imposition of English used by Anglo-Canadians or Americans to operate the conquest of the territory. As you can see, times are changing. Now all western nations see their territory being invaded by foreign and hostile populations, sometimes using violence but some other times using stealthy means such as religion or language. So I beg President Trump, in parallel with the construction of the physical wall, to order the preparation of a bill that would make English the official language of the United States. Our countries face an emergency and strong measures must be put in place to save all our nations with their culture, history and civilization. No need to say that it stands to reason that all nations of the western world should do the same and adopt such a law to protect the language of their national population.
To Make America Great Again starts with a strong wall with its four layers. If it works, the United States will have a very very bright future…in English!
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…
