Anti-white Diversity Promotion at U.B.C.
|University of British Columbia (UBC) campus|
Recently, I was at the University of British Columbia (UBC), one of Canada’s largest universities — which also happens to be one of Canada’s most prestigious — being regularly ranked in the top forty worldwide.
I was there to cheer on a friend of mine who was graduating. As with most graduations, there was a plethora of speeches given, and all were sentimental and lacking in substance.
Almost immediately Gordon began his speech by calling Canada “a nation of immigrants“, and he stated that he was also an immigrant. I could barely contain my displeasure.
As Ricardo Duchesne has discussed on this site before, the idea that Canada is a “nation of immigrants” is a false meme. Canada was built by, and for Europeans, and specifically the British and French. Duchesne states that,
Canada cannot “accurately be portrayed at Confederation as a nation of immigrants”. In 1867, 79 percent had been born in Canada. Over the 400 years before Confederation, there were only “two quite limited periods” of substantial arrivals of immigrants: from 1783 to 1812, and from 1830 to 1850. In these two periods, the immigrants were “overwhelmingly of British origin”.
In the case of Quebec the amount of immigration from the motherland was far fewer as in the aftermath of the Seven Years War, New France fell to the British, and ties with France were all but broken.
The French-speaking population numbered about 70,000 in the 1760s, and thereafter, until the late 1800s, the population expanded rapidly with women having 5.6 surviving children on average. By 1950, the Quebec population was almost 4 million. This increase was not a result of immigration, but of continuing high fertility rates.
I am — and surely many of those associated with the CEC, readers, contributors, etc. — the descendant of British colonists who arrived before there was a United States, let alone Canada! Would Gordon really have the gall to call me an immigrant!?
My ancestors literally built the two great nations in North America — they settled the land, farmed it, built highways and all manner of buildings upon it; yet, if we are to believe Gordon, they are no different than someone who has only just arrived to enjoy the fruits of my ancestor’s labour?
And the later intake of settlers that occurred in the aftermath of Confederation were almost exclusively European in makeup, with Germans being perhaps the largest group. The only major difference between Germans and the founding peoples of Canada is linguistic. The German settlers were all either Protestant or Catholic, and as Europeans, obviously come from the same racial stock as French and Anglos. The same could also be said of the Icelandic, Italian, Dutch and other Western European arrivals. A greater difference exists between the founding peoples and Ukrainians, Greeks and Russians — who also began arriving in large numbers towards the end of the 20th century — as these people are Orthodox, but again … they were all White Christians.
Hardly a clash of worlds. Gordon peppered his speech with the terms “diversity” and “inclusiveness”. I cannot remember just how many times he used these terms, but it was almost excessive. These are terms which, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, appear harmless on the surface but on further inspection are revealed to be deadly. As we all know these terms have been used time and time again by those who are anti-western. They hate Whites, thinking that we are somehow evil and that Western culture is worse than others. This is absurd when one considers that human rights, liberties, democracy and all the other values they claim to stand up for, are Western inventions. If we go, then they go too.
Indeed, thanks to mass immigration, we here in Canada have seen an increase in truly barbaric practices — sorry Trudeau, but ‘yes’, barbaric is an appropriate term for them — like FGM and so-called honour killings, which thankfully were unknown in the days before Pearson. How can liberty and human rights exist among people who routinely mutilate, and even butcher their own women?
After Gordon, the university president Arvind Gupta gave a speech. His was thankful without the obvious lies that Gordon had just peddled, but he still made a point of discussing the importance of foreign students and on opening up UBC to the international community. Now there is nothing wrong with students coming to Canada for education, but the problem is that Gupta, like his predecessors, is putting a greater emphasis on international students. No doubt he shared Gordon’s views about Canada as a “land of immigrants“! There is money to be made in pandering to the largely non-white population of UBC. …>>read more.
