Maxime Bernier recently send out a series of tweets expressing skepticism of “extreme multiculturalism” and our Prime Minister’s nauseating “diversity is our strength” motto. What is surprising in this recent affair however, is not the predictable backlash from mainstream media, but the Conservative Party’s lack of support and consensual decision to throw Maxime Bernier under the bus for making such comments.
Canadians have reached a point with the Conservative Party where they need to determine if this constituency is something that represents their best interests or simply a collection of weak-willed politicians who worship at the alter of political correctness. According to the Conservative Party, expressing skepticism of the long-term benefits of multiculturalism and “diversity” in Canada is grounds for social and professional expulsion.
What has been made abundantly clear is that if Canadians want a government that emphasizes their culture, the Conservative Party is not the option.
“Something infinitely diverse has no core identity and ceases to exist.”
“Cultural balkanisation brings distrust, social conflict, and potentially violence, as we are seeing everywhere. It’s time we reverse this trend before the situation gets worse. More diversity will not be our strength, it will destroy what has made us such a great country.”
“Trudeau’s extreme multiculturalism and cult of diversity will divide us into little tribes that have less and less in common, apart from their dependence on government in Ottawa. These tribes become political clienteles to be bought with taxpayers $ and special privileges.”
“Having people live among us who reject basic Western values such as freedom, equality, tolerance and openness doesn’t make us strong. People who refuse to integrate into our society and want to live apart in their ghetto don’t make our society strong.”
“But why should we promote ever more diversity? If anything and everything is Canadian, does being Canadian mean something? Shouldn’t we emphasize our cultural traditions, what we have built and have in common, what makes us different from other cultures and societies?”
– Maxime Bernier, Conservative Member of Parliament
If the Conservative Party cannot hold an open discussion about the benefits and challenges of multiculturalism in our country, I expect that this party will fail to capture the minds and hearts of Canadians. Infact, I believe we are already in the early stages of a spectacular implosion of the Conservative Party of Canada – and to that I say good riddance. The Conservative Party has failed to conserve anything in this country and their actions toward Maxime Bernier demonstrate that they have moved away from anything that represents the values of true conservatism.
The truth is that multiculturalism is a fallacy. The State should never attempt to be everything for everyone. It should promote particular aspects of the cultural fabric of its society. For those aspects of its society which fail to integrate, it must exclude.
When you read the history books, you will not find a single example where multiculturalism was successful. This is because multiculturalism has never worked and it will never work. If it was working, we wouldn’t need ever-expanding laws and regulations which tell us how to speak, how to act, and how to live. The end result is always the same: fragmentation and balkanization of the country.
When Pierre Trudeau first implemented the social experiment of multiculturalism in the 1970s, it was done with the intention of eroding what was at the time a great and proud nation of people. Multiculturalism in Canada, and indeed every country it has been implemented, has failed. Our current Prime Minister is attempting to finish what his “father” started: the destruction of the Canadian identity.
For those who are skeptical toward the long-term benefits of official multiculturalism, the Canadian Nationalist Party welcomes you. We want a government in Canada that promotes the culture which has demonstratively delivered to us a high standard of living: our anglophone and francophone heritage.
