Political INcorrect Constructs Arranged To Awaken Slumbering Minds…

What is “Cognitive Dissonance”?

The relevant part of the meaning of the term for us is… “the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who…is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.”

For the purposes of this blog, that would be the theories of race, multiculturalism, and diversity promoted by the mainstream media Vs reality … as seen in real life.

Cognitive dissonance” theory is a key weapon in the promotion of multiculturalism. It was thought up by Jewish psychologist Leon Festinger. It has proved very useful in devising methods to overcome prejudice. Festinger also came up with “proximity theory” – simply that you become friends with whoever is near you. In many ways he is the ideological father of Section 8 housing in the United States.

Most people believe that stress caused by the increasing gap between what people see in the media and what they see in real life … will cause people to wake up. This is a myth.

Experiments in “cognitive dissonance” have shown that in order to escape from the stress, it induces most people to capitulate to multicultural brainwashing and just accept the status quo. Other experiments in “cognitive dissonance” have also shown that a high level of “racism-hatred” of other races – is also useless as a defense against multicultural brainwashing.

So the fact that distrust of the mainstream media (MSM) is at an all-time high is irrelevant. This just means that cognitive dissonance is also at an all time high – and this has always been shown to break peoples’ will to resist. The fact that people are becoming more vocally “racist” is also irrelevant. High levels of “hatred” of other races can be easily overcome.

Experiments have shown that the key thing in neutralizing “cognitive dissonance” and diversity-brainwashing is not distrust of the media or “racism” … but LOVE – love of your own race, the WHITE race.

European children

One study said: “Racism is pro-white… rather than anti-black”. Cognitive Dissonance is ineffective against Love of the White race. That is why the enemy propaganda message was converted from ‘other races are good‘ to ‘the White race is useless‘ (or bad, or is “privileged”). How do we combat it? Here is the flaw in ‘cognitive dissonance’.

The elites don’t care if you’re “racist”. They don’t care if you go online and slander Jews, blacks and Arabs. The don’t care how negative you are towards other races. Because they know from their experiments that no matter how much you “hate” other races … you will be beaten. The elitists don’t fear your so-called “hatred” of other races. So what do they fear?

What they fear is love of your own race – the White race, so “racism” is pro-white and not anti-black.  > Source

Leftist Mainstream Media Bias

Unknown Author

Canadian Media BIAS?

If you read any number of reactionary/hard-conservative blogs and websites, it is readily apparent that I’m not saying anything new. It’s all run-of-the-mill stuff that you might read on Vdare.

What makes this blog unique and valuable, in my opinion, is that these opinions are being applied to the Canadian situation. Canadians do Internet searches on Canadian issues that lead them to my site (unfortunately, original source is no longer available – Editor). I’d like to think that I’m making other true conservatives feel like they’re not alone, as well as maybe converting a person or two who happen to stumble upon my site.

Conservative Canadians are a moderately sized minority in this country, but one would NOT know that from reading newspapers or watching TV.  Unlike the United States, we have zero (conservative) representation in the public sphere.

“News” is reported with a blatant left-wing bias. The majority of my articles on this blog deal with taking Globe & Mail (newspaper) articles and rewriting them from a conservative standpoint; exposing their biases and logical errors. Today is going to be no different. I recently came across two articles which both deal with the same issue: Minorities in Canada being paid less, relative to their White counterparts, and how White “racism” is to blame. They are both long articles, so read them first, and then come back here, where I will be cherry-picking sentences that rubbed me the wrong way, and rebutting them. Black Canadians Paid Less on Average Relative to Whites: Study Canadian-Born Visible Minorities Earn Less The first article complains that:

[The StatsCan Study] found that second-generation Blacks face a wage gap of about 10% to 15% compared with non-visible minorities (who are they?? – editor). The gap persists even though the results were controlled for education and residencial [sic] location. Statscan didn’t explain why it think there’s a persistent wage gap — but it didn’t rule out discrimation[sic]. “Wage discrimination may or may not be a contributing factor,” the agency said.

I would say “may not”, and would point to hereditary IQ differences between population groups as the main culprit.

Little economic research has delved into why the gap exists. But Statscan does cite a 2008 study, by University of Toronto professor Philip Oreopoulos, which found job applicants with English-sounding names are much more likely to get a job interview than applicants with non-English-sounding names.

This study was biased, as they undoubtedly only attempted to entrap White-run companies. Did they try a study where they sent English-sounding names to East-Indian or Chinese-run companies (two ethnic groups who are very nepotistic)?  I’m sure their results would have shown definite ANTI-White bias in that case … more so than the anti-minority bias noticed above.

Newspapers are always pointing to anti-minority employer bias … but there are very real instances of ANTI-White bias that are never mentioned. Anyone who has ever traveled through Vancouver International Airport, or Toronto’s Pearson Airport, can attest to the fact that the staff is at least 80% NON-white (Canada is about 84% WHITE majority).  Journalists fly all the time.  Maybe they are all as good at “not seeing colour” as they claim. More likely, the pro-minority/anti-white bias in hiring doesn’t fit in with their worldview… so they don’t write about it, unless to celebrate it. Like in a paragraph from the second article.

She (a minority who suspected that she was being passed over for promotions in a previous job) has since found her niche, earning a salary close to six figures with an employer whose work force is 50% visible-minority (NON-white). “I’m treated very fairly here,” she said.

Where is the outrage that she now works in an office in which a certain segment of the population (Whites-84%) is under-represented in comparison to its proportion of the general population?  Oh yeah, they’re White, so it doesn’t matter. More minorities = better.

[The study] also looked at gender, and found second-generation males who are visible-minorities tend to earn less than their White counterparts “in spite of the fact that they are more likely to live in large centres and that they have higher levels of educational attainment.”

This was the dumbest sentence in either article. The biggest salaries in the big cities are definitely higher than those earned out in the country.  But the average salary in the country is much higher than the average salary in the city, because men in the country do real, productive work; like work in the oil & gas or mining industries, as well as agriculture and logging. Those jobs pay high wages. People in the city (especially racial minorities) are likely to be working in the low-paying service industry. Again, the Globe and Mail chooses to view facts subjectively through an ANTI-White lens, instead of objectively.

There are many reasons for a wage gap that don’t involve “racism“:  For example, genetically determined traits such as IQ and temperament and their choice of job. You will notice that the article didn’t state that Black doctors are getting paid less than White doctors. If more Whites become doctors, and more Blacks become janitors, the racial wage average is going to be skewed in favour of White people. Adjusting for education doesn’t mean anything. It all comes down to job choice.

Is there active discrimination in hiring by White-run companies?  Probably. They may prefer to hire people who fit in, rather than visible-minorities with an axe to grind. Racial-minority companies are much worse at racially discriminating practices… but the media becomes very silent on that issue. >Source no longer available

The Canada They Want Us to See — And the Canada They Want Us to Forget

by Tim Murray

Miscegenation in Canada
“We are the Ideal Family in Canada”  (??)

According to University of Toronto sociologist Shyon Baumann, there are too many White faces in Canadian ads, and he does not like it:

The media does have the power to shape our ideas about who people are. The media can reinforce cultural values that are already out there, so when we see commercials that feature characters that we are not used to seeing — a black family eating at a restaurant rather than a white family — little by little if we are exposed to those ideas over time, it broadens the idea of what is normal.

It was like sighting a Sasquatch or a flying saucer. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was watching TV today when a commercial advertising “Sears Optical” eyeglasses appeared — get this — without any “people-of-colour”!
Quick, somebody phone 911! Somebody contact the Hate Crimes department of the local police! Somebody file a complaint with the Human Rights Commission! Hurry!

Sears Optical needs to be punished. They need to be taught a lesson. They need to keep up with the times. Don’t they know that we are living in the new Canada? Don’t they know that ours is an “inclusive” multi-racial and multi-cultural society where every colour of the rainbow must be represented everywhere, and at all times? Don’t they know that most of their customers reside in Canada’s five major centres, all of which boast of their “diversity“, and that the biggest, Toronto is — as a CTV commercial put it — proud to be a “conduit” to the world?

What are people of colour who watch this Sears Optical commercial to think? What are their children to think? What are they to think if they don’t see themselves or people who look like themselves in each and every damn TV ad? They might feel that they don’t belong to this country. They might feel “excluded”. Unwanted. What a terrible thing to do to children! You can only imagine what this will do to their self-esteem. [For less astute readers, the above was written as sarcasm. ELN Editor]

Seriously, this Sears Optical commercial was conspicuous because it was exceptional. Typically, almost all TV ads in Canada today use inter-racial settings to provide a trendy backdrop to sell products from cars to soap to coffee. You name it. In so doing, they offer viewers a lens to see the Canada they want us to see, a carefully manufactured multi-ethnic utopia where ethnic communities are meshing seamlessly. It’s a narrative of colour-blindness and cross-cultural congruity that is meant to flatter us. “See, Canada’s great experiment in multiculturalism is an outstanding success. Our model is working. Canada is the exception to the rule. We alone have discovered the secret formula of mixing oil and water. And these ads prove it. They’re a barometer of our progress.”

Thus “diversity advertising” is able to kill two birds with one stone by serving twin objectives. The first, obviously, is to broaden the company’s customer base. The second is to demonstrate corporate responsibility by “getting with the program” and falling into line with the national all-party agenda. “We aren’t just serving you, our customers, we are serving the country and its great cause. Look, even our employees are diverse. We walk the talk.”

Some Canadians — “rednecks”, “racists”, and “bigots” — you know the type — might be seething with rage about all of this. They might think as I do. They don’t think that the appearance of non-white faces on television is objectionable because somehow skin colour is correlated with good or bad character. Nor do they believe that the people of colour who are depicted on the screen are less ‘Canadian‘ than they are, or that they don’t deserve to be treated well or accorded the full rights of citizenship. No, that’s not it. That is not what makes them angry.

They’re angry because they believe that this ‘diversity-in-your-face‘ strategy is deliberately designed to convey a clear message to Canadians of European origin: Traditional Canada, the Canada of two founding nations, the bicultural Canada, is history. It’s dead. And it’s never coming back. So get over it. Move on. And most of all … shut up!

Unfortunately, I won’t.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have a problem with how people look, or that their genes are different from mine. As a matter of fact, two people in my family are non-white, and three are ‘half-caste’. No, that is not my problem.

My problem is what the proliferation of brown faces in new(s) casts, parliament, talk shows and TV dramas reflect. It reflects the success of an agenda that was never put to a vote, and for which no federal government ever had a mandate to pursue. The agenda of mass immigration and Official Multiculturalism. The agenda of cutting Canada from its European moorings by casting the immigration net across the world, of transforming what was once a largely bi-cultural country into a multicultural dog’s breakfast … of recruiting cheap labour from failed states … of packing our cities with more and more people who must squeeze tighter and tighter, while subdividing farmland to alleviate the pressure. The result? Higher density and sprawl at the same time. The worst of both worlds.

“Stupid” White man needs affirmation from a Black woman. If the roles were reversed in this TV commercial, there would be vociferous voices calling out for a boycott against Scotia Bank.

************************************
Now, for the some reality:

(A cure for “White Guilt”:  “It’s a WONDERFUL RACE” )

These [racially] “inclusive” TV commercials are a persistent reminder that we are losing our country, that we are the guinea pigs of a social engineering project that we never agreed to. Hapless victims of a game plan hatched many decades ago, before half of us were even born. Casualties of a disease that went largely undetected until its symptoms finally became obvious to all. Slowly, step by step, these commercials are conditioning us to accept that what we now see is normal, making what is to come less worrisome. In essence, they are setting us up for a future where Euro-Canadians will be marginalized in every major city of the country. Breaking us in and breaking us down.

The process has been insidious. No wonder so many of us were taken by surprise. No wonder that legislative changes and ideas that seemed harmless, or trivial, or even laudable at the time, once planted, took root and suddenly exploded across the landscape to envelop all of our institutions, like morning glory in the late spring. Even now, there are people in our own ethnic ranks who are mesmerized by its beautiful blossoms, unable to grasp that it is an invasive species that won’t quit until it has displaced all before it. It may be too late to stop its progress, or uproot the policies that fertilize it.

If that is the case, I don’t need TV commercials to rub more salt into my wounds. Thank you, Sears Optical, for your careless oversight. It was nice of you to give us a look into the rear-view mirror and see the Canada which we once knew and lost. The one that they want us to repudiate and forget. >Source: http://www.eurocanadian.ca  (For added emphasis, Bolded, Italicized, underlined words and links by ELN editor)

March Against WHITE Genocide

 H/T This Is Europa

Imported “multi-culturalism” (their invented word) is a corrupting agenda designed to destabilize majority-White nations, and to displace homogeneous White peoples with incongruent NON-whites by way of massive 3rd-world immigration.

JEWISH studies professor, Noel Ignatiev is the first person seen in the above video, and is quoted as saying elsewhere:

“The goal of abolishing the white race, is, on its face so desirable, that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white ‘supremacists’. Make no mistake about it, we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the ‘social construct’ known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed–not ‘deconstructed’ … but destroyed.” (my underlined, bold words – Ed)

Need more proof?

… and, what does ISRAEL do?

In a small eastern city, Canadian taxpayers are “honoured in welcoming“, yet more illiterate and incompatible FOREIGNERS that cost upwards of $50,000(?) each! (Airfare, hotels, food, medical/dental services, ground transportation, hired enablers, ESL classes, clothing allowances. Then comes their FREE lifetime welfare cheques, and modern subsidized apartments, plus other free benefits, plus lots of FREE time to wander around our parks, civic gardens and modern shopping malls like pampered tourists.

In contrast, many destitute Canadian-born citizens having those often described “white privileges“, will sleep under bridges or on city grates, while yet another plane-load of unknown foreign “refugees” land on Canadian soil tonight.)

Censoring The People’s Internet

By Fred

[…]

Today, the Internet is the only free press we have, all that stands against total control of information.

Consider how relentlessly the media impose political correctness, how the slightest offense to the protected groups—we all know who they are—or to sacred policies leads to firing of reporters and groveling by politicians.  The wars are buried and serious criticism of Washington suppressed. That leaves the net, only the net, without which we would know nothing.

Which is why it must be, and will be censored … sooner, if Washington can get away with it, and later, if not. The tactics are predictable.

First, “hate speech” will be banned. The government will tell us whom we can hate, and whom we cannot. “Hatred” will be vaguely defined so that one will never be sure when one is engaging in it and, since it will be prosecutable, one will have to be very careful. Disapproval of favored groups, or of their behavior, will be defined as hatred. National security will be invoked, silencing whistle-blowers or, eventually, anything that might make the public uneasy with Washington’s wars.

The next step probably will be to block links to foreign sites deemed to transgress. China is good at this. The most likely avenue will be executive orders of increasingly Draconian nature, about which Congress and the Dead—the Supreme Court, I meant to say—will do nothing.

At that point, coming soon  to a theater near you, the United States as it was intended to be, and to an extent was, will be over. Our increasingly characterless young, raised to ignorance and “Appropriate Thought” by government schools, will question nothing. They will have no way of knowing that there is anything to question.

I suppose it can be debated whether the current enstupidation of the rising generations is deliberate or merely the consequence of a return to peasantry inescapable in a democracy. The petulance and immaturity running through so much of society may be inevitable in a spoiled people who have never had to do anything and have never been told “no.” Certainly, things today resemble the end games of other once-dominant cultures.

Mental darkness facilitates authoritarianism, and darkness we have.  Many college graduates can barely read. Their ignorance of history, politics, and geography (and practically everything else) is profound, and they see no reason why they should know anything. They seem not to suspect that there might be things worth knowing.

I am hard pressed to think of a society in such internal decline that has turned itself around, and I cannot imagine how ours might do so. One sure thing is that, once the Internet is gelded … there will be no hope at all. And the assault has begun.  …to Full Report

Mass Mind Control Through MSM

What is Freedom to YOU?

By Pat

[Many] people today … know “something” is wrong with this society.

They see the “changes” that are really overt signs of decay. Most people are unhappy. Most people are fat. Most people don’t have fulfilling relationships. Most people are under financial pressure. Most people recognize that society at large is becoming more of a reflection of the 3rd world.

But they don’t know why.

Most people seem to find the concepts of freedom, knowledge, and the meaning of life to be perplexing in definition.

What is freedom to you? If you don’t have the option of doing the opposite – then you’re not free. How much freedom do you really have?

What is knowledge? If you can’t objectively and empirically justify your “belief” about something – then you merely hold a tentative idea … and it’s not knowledge.

What is the meaning of life to you? Is it control of your environment, and the subjugation of others by any means necessary, or is it the pursuit of truth – no matter where that leads?

What we are seeing is the advance of a certain group who hold that the meaning of life is to control the environment, and the subjugation of everyone else, by any means necessary. They are using certain tools to leverage this. The most pervasive is usury. Usury and the private issuance of monetary instruments at practically no cost to the issuer ensures that the private entity will own everything that the issued-money can buy. Adolf Hitler circumvented that by having Germany engage in straight barter with other countries – using no monetary instruments at all for international trade. They just “traded” finished goods for raw materials. That practice completely f*cked the jews.

[Read: Economic Plan of Germany’s NSDAP]

Another major tool “they” use against us … is the application of various forms or brainwashing. The science of mind manipulation is very advanced now. Watching them do this is is really quite interesting. In the past they primarily used Pavlovian methods of behavior and thought control … today electronic media uses a combination of hypnosis, NLP and a few other key techniques to induce reflexive responses in the target audiences.

Anyone with a lot of experience in martial arts will understand the concept of “setting up” the opponent by inducing a reflexive response – that is then taken advantage of in the form of another maneuver. The uninitiated won’t even understand what he’s seeing as the master engages an opponent to induce a reflex. Once that reflex happens, the master fluidly executes his real plan.

That is the real “Art” in fighting.

The Globalist Communists have been hard at work developing what I refer to as “Mental Martial Arts”. They apply these methods primarily through the TV, but they are also used in universities.

Without question, the TV is the most influential medium of mass communication ever. It has joined the toilet as a nearly ubiquitous feature of the modern human dwelling.

The “averageAmerican watches 5 hours and 11 minutes of television every single day. That’s 36 hours of TV every week. That translates into 1,872 hours. Let’s say … they averaged 8 hours of sleep each day and were awake for 16. That means they spend the equivalent of 117 entire waking days watching TV. If watching TV was limited to only 8 hours a day they’d be sitting there watching for 234 days straight. Obviously, TV watching is a massive issue.

Much of that “programming” has been devoted, either directly or indirectly at maligning the German National Socialists. To say that they “failed” and their ideas invalid does not reflect the facts.

They did not “fail”. They were bombed. They were subjected to mass murder. They were occupied and will continue to be occupied until at least 2099.

I submit that they succeeded and posed such an utter threat to the Globalist Communists, that even today NS ideas are feared by the Globalist Communists.

As for the Internet, it’s just a tool – but it is HEAVILY infiltrated. However, it can be used to a limited degree. The real action is in the real world with real people … and that is where much focus should be placed.

The conflict playing out before us is really very basic. I would prefer to see those whose view the meaning of life to be the pursuit of TRUTH – regardless of where that may lead — win. Source

VIDEO: Young Woman Tells Angry Black Man He Has a Slave Complex

ELN:

Good grief, another Emma West scenario where we have police chasing down another “dangerous word-utterer” on a transit system. The neutered White guy sitting beside her remains conspicuously silent while the black African foreigner wails away in his accented-English because the female passenger equated “slavery” to his African origins. Her “crime” was having noticed the man was actually BLACK, while the White hypocrites surrounding her … pretend not to notice because that’s considered “racist” in their indoctrinated mind-set.

Aided and abetted by her fellow Whites, this woman will now be hunted down, investigated and possibly charged with “hate” speech at a cost of thousands of man-hours and expense.

Originally posted on daily europa:

Video has emerged of a woman ranting at a black passenger on a crowded underground train before telling him: ‘you have a problem because you guys used to be slaves’.

Footage shows the young woman, who appears to be speaking with an eastern European accent, get into a heated argument with a man sitting opposite after apparently asking him to move seats.

Passengers can be heard shouting ‘shut up’ after she makes the racist remark. More footage uploaded to video sharing site Vine captures her saying: ‘I have black friends, I’m not racist.’

See how the media sell this story – it’s all the young woman’s fault in their eyes.

They want to portray this as a racist rant – even though the woman says she is ‘not a racist’ and has ‘black friends’.

The black guy obviously has a problem because he is shouting at this young woman for no…

Advocate For Euro-Whites

Chinese-Canadian Activism Vs Academic Freedom

by Ricardo Duchesne
Since January 8 through January 22, the main media (MSM) outlets in Canada have paid considerable attention to my claim that mass immigration threatens Canada’s European character.
It all started back in early June when Vancouver city councillor, Kerry Jang, wrote a formal letter to the administration at The University of New Brunswick complaining about my allegedly “racist” views about Chinese Canadians, simply on the grounds that I had published a number of articles in this blog, Council of European Canadians, criticizing a motion passed by Raymond Louie, a Canadian with ancestry from China, urging council to direct staff to investigate discriminatory laws and policies imposed by the government on Chinese immigrants in the city between 1886 and 1947, in order to come up with recommendations for “reconciliation efforts.”
[Also see: Emboldened Minorities “Eye” Canada]
In this article, and a number of subsequent articles, including a formal “reply” to Jang and Louie, I objected to the endless demands for apologies and redresses by Chinese leaders in Vancouver, noting that many apologies and compensation packages had already been offered by various levels of government in Canada starting with Prime Minister Harper’s 2006 apology and $34 million financial compensation.
In the Council of European Canadians, I have written many articles consistent with the promotion and defense of the ethnic interests of European Canadians within the framework of the Canadian Multiculturalism Act of 1988, which guarantees the rights of Canadians of any racial origin to protect and enhance their cultural and ethnic interests in a way that is consistent with the principles of our liberal democratic institutions.A high number of my articles have been on the philosophical and historical aspects of the ideology of immigrant multiculturalism and on the uniqueness of Western Civilization. Readers will notice that these articles have been carefully researched, backed by many sources, involving carefully constructed arguments with some of the foremost scholars favoring Canadian multiculturalism and addressing the dynamics of Western civilization.Since this controversy erupted again in early January, I have been tempted to write a reply to the main articles which have appeared in The Globe and Mail, The National Post, CBC, Global News, The Tyee, four university student papers, and other venues. But the fact that the overwhelming majority of the comments in response to these articles have strongly supported my views and academic freedom to dissent, persuaded me not to offer a reply. I was satisfied too with the endorsement of academic freedom by the journalists at the Globe and Mail, the Post, and the Vancouver Sun.

January 22 article in The Globe and Mail

But yesterday January 22, in what is now the third article in The Globe and Mail about this controversy, three Chinese-Canadians not only disagreed but called upon The University of New Brunswick to censor me on the grounds that my views do not deserve to be expressed by any academic in Canada!

 Under the title, What this UNB professor practices is intolerance, not sociology, authors Avvy Go, Dora Nipp, and Winnie Ng, conclude:

“The purpose of academic freedom is to prevent a chill on the pursuit of knowledge and to safeguard diverse viewpoints. However, in Canada no right is absolute; in the case of academic freedom, this right starts to unravel when academics hide behind academic freedom to espouse untruths that actually inflict harm. If the staff and faculty of UNB are truly committed to academic freedom and academic excellence, they should join the Asian Canadian community in condemning racism in any form in Canada.”

This short, but falsehood-filled article, cannot go unchallenged. The authors are adamantly against my emphasis on the European character of Canada and how mass immigration threatens it.

Yet, a quick examination of the careers of Go, Nipp, and Ng reveals three lives fully dedicated to the promotion of Chinese ethnic interests in Canada combined with the portrayal of European Canadians in a persistently negative way. They eulogize about the “the pursuit of knowledge,” “academic standards,” and the “academic profession” but only Ng has some sort of position at a university.

Ng holds the “CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy at Ryerson University,” a position described as “the first union-endowed chair at a Canadian University.” Her university profile describes her as an “activist” and states that the “mandate” of the chair is “to create a hub of interaction between social justice activists and academics at Ryerson University.” Strictly speaking, then, Ng is not an academic hired as a professor, but holds a chair financed by a union, “selected not only for her extensive experience in the social justice field but for her research interests in anti-racism, equality, and coalition and capacity building.”

 There are no indications of peer-reviewed articles by Ng on the Internet except a report she co-authored with five other names with the title An Immigrant All Over Again? Recession, Plant Closures and [Older] Racialized Immigrant Workers.

Avvy Go is also not an academic but “director of the Metro Toronto Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic.” This clinic is dedicated to “advocacy activities” for selected ethnic groups in Canada, namely, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Laotian communities in Greater Toronto.

Dora Nipp is CEO of the Multicultural History Society of Ontario; her career in Canada has revolved around the promotion and struggles of Chinese Canadians in the face of “racist” Europeans.

These three activists for Chinese/Asian interests show no hesitation declaring that:

“Mr. Duchesne spreads falsehoods about an entire community and in doing so betrays the standards of academia by engaging in racial caricature and perpetuating intolerance.”

It is the other way around; in this article, these three Chinese/Asian ethnonationalists spread many falsehoods about what I have said and caricature the entire community of European Canadians by concentrating solely on their “racist” and “colonial” activities.

“Efforts by Asian and African Canadians to claim their rightful place in Canadian history are framed by Mr. Duchesne as “assaulting European civilization”.

[ELN Editor note: Conflating ethnocentric Chinese pursuits with Black people is highly disingenuous. Marxist/leftists often use this method of combining phantom support forces as a protective barrier for weak arguments against their debating opponents. It’s also a power-play designed to muster other forces against the White-majority until those “others” have outlived their usefulness. See: New CHINESE Political Party in Canada]

This is untrue. I have never written aboutAfrican Canadians,” for starters, and have never framed Asian arguments about their role in Canada as “assaulting European civilization.”

 They offer no evidence for these cited words because I have not written anything close to this claim. I have simply criticized some current Chinese leaders in Canada for their continual demands for apologies and financial compensation from current Canadians (who had nothing to do with the head tax), and have also written historically based articles challenging their interpretation of the origins and context of the head tax.

They continue:

“In claiming this, Mr. Duchesne ignores the historical fact that the “founding” of Canada took place on the land of indigenous peoples, and that in the name of “preserving European civilization” systemic exclusion and colonial domination has been inflicted on the First Peoples. It is hard to avoid reading Mr. Duchesne’s notion of “European civilization” and “Britishness” as something resembling white supremacy.”

How can the argument that Canada was founded by European Canadians be categorized as a form of “White supremacy” if Canada, was in fact created by Europeans?

 Why don’t they respond to my fact-filled article Canada Is a Nation Created by Diverse Immigrants’ — A False Meme?
As late as 1971 — when multiculturalism was officially introduced — the ethnic composition of the nation was 96% European, at which point all the institutions, legal system, educational curriculum, transformation of wilderness into productive farms, all the cities, the parliamentary traditions, the churches, the entire infrastructure of railways, ports, shipping industries, and highways, had been created by hardworking Europeans. This is not to say that other minorities were not participants; it is to emphasize the salient reality of Canada’s European culture.
Robson Street in Vancouver, BC — 50 years ago!
I have never endorsed any of the actions that were inflicted against indigenous peoples, or against any NON-White immigrant, but have simply tried to offer a view of Canada that does not stereo-typify Europeans as inherently “racist”, and other minorities as inherently “benevolent”.
 Millions of current European Canadians are tired of having the history of their ancestors categorized solely by the words “systematic exclusion and colonial domination.” This is clearly a form of “racial caricature.”

“It matters not to individuals like Mr. Duchesne that Chinese people first landed on Canada’s west coast in 1744, came to pan for gold in 1858, and in 1881 were brought to Canada to help build the Canadian Pacific Railway. It appears immaterial to Mr. Duchesne that Chinese Canadians have a longstanding presence in Canada. Similarly, South Asians have made Canada their home since the turn of the last century.”

Everyone knows this. What they don’t know are facts such as the following:

 From 1608 to 1760, immigration to New France (Quebec) consisted of only 10,000 settlers, and thereafter it was “almost non-existent.” The French-speaking population numbered about 70,000 in the 1760s, and thereafter, until the late 1800s, the population expanded rapidly through the high fertility rate of mothers, 5.6 surviving children on average, and not at all through immigration. By 1950, the Quebec population was almost 4 million. This increase was not a result of immigration, but of continuing high fertility rates. It was only in the 1970s that Montreal saw an increasing inflow of non-European immigrants.

But these three (Chinese/Asian) activists don’t highlight the struggles of Quebec mothers, (and) how hard it was for them to make a living in the harsh climate of Canada. Instead, they prefer to make a living by depicting Europeans in the worst possible light as “supremacists“, and then they have the nerve to complain about “racial caricatures”.

The next few sentences are just typical complaints about the “tremendous discrimination” Asians suffered and still suffer in Canada — if so, why do millions keep coming?

How about the horrendous acts of human-rights violations in China, rampant racism and destruction of the lifestyles of ethnic minorities, sickening treatment of animals, and commercial dealings in body organs?

“[I]t is 2015 and one expects a more enlightened populace today — one that includes all peoples and rejects the portrayal of Canada as one preserved for “Europeans” only.”

My argument is not that Canada should be preserved for Europeans only; it is that the policy of multiculturalism encourages Canadians from all ethnic backgrounds to affirm their heritage and culture, and that if we are to be consistent and not follow a double standard,we should stop prohibiting European Canadians from pursuing their own ethnic interests in the same way that these three (Chinese/Asian) activists have made entire careers pursuing the ethnic interests of Asians in Canada.

“Duchesne is a professor of history and sociology, but he has brought the academic profession into disrepute.”

There are no indications that these three (Chinese/Asian) activists know much about the history and sociology profession; whereas I have an extensive list of publications in both fields. The three of them combined — as far as I can tell from a search of the Internet — do not have a single referred publication.

“Mr. Duchesne’s intolerant statements will run the risk of inciting fear and resentment toward Canadians of Asian heritage by reinforcing stereotypes of the ethnic Chinese as perpetual foreigners. He glorifies scholarship and writing that fuels xenophobia and provides fodder for white supremacy. Mr. Duchesne is a unicultural ideologue.”

They have no evidence that I have reinforced stereotypes about Chinese Canadians; what is the case is that I don’t accept their demands for endless apologies and “inclusive redresses.”

 Go, Nipp, and Ng are the ones who have fueled xenophobia through many years of activism against European Canadians, polarizing Canadians into the “bad”, “racist” Whites and the “innocent” minorities.

The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada’s Statement on Academic Freedom (2011)…sets out the responsibilities of academic freedom, which include: evidence and truth must be the guiding principles…committed to the highest ethical standards in their teaching and research; faculty should examine data, question assumptions and be guided by evidence; and faculty and university leadership are obligated to ensure that students’ human rights are respected.

These 3 (Chinese/Asian) activists are welcome to take a look at my extensively reviewed book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, which cites over 800 different books and articles, and which even critics have praised for its very high academic standards. I am also a highly-liked professor at my university, with high levels of student registration in my courses. What the students like most about my classes is that they don’t get only the leftist view of things, but three or four viewpoints.

 The textbook required for my Introduction to Sociology course, for example, is a typical radical-leftist text, in addition to which I offer students alternative readings with libertarian, old conservative, and European nationalist perspectives. I often say to students that they can follow any viewpoint; all that I require of them is to show awareness of alternative views, (and) take them into account in their writings.

I don’t object to the enthusiasm Go, Nipp, and Ng exhibit for Asian issues and historical contributions to Canada. It is natural that they care about their people. I object to the current double standard which says that only NON-Europeans have a moral right to protect and enhance their ethnic interests. I am for a level playing field in the Canadian multicultural arena, with European Canadians enjoying the same rights as other ethnic groups in the defense of their heritage and cultural lineage. It is that simple.  >Source

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 110,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.
