  • Re-birth of French Nationalism

    I like her. And, for those who fear nationalist aggression in Europe, in history, when was the last time France was imperialistic?

  • Just a question… or two… or three…

    Why now, in 2017, is suddenly religious intolerance a big social issue, a cause celeb?

    This is the principle behind the anti-Islamophobia (so-called) outcry in the West, in Canada and the U.S. is it not?

    Where was this righteousness in the mainstream a few years ago when it was trendy to slam Chritianity on a daily basis in pop culture, and actually still is?

    Is eliminating religious intolerance really the motive here? Or is this just a means to an end?

    Will Christians who grew up in the west listening to abuse, derision and daily hatred, as well as watch sacrilege enshrined as art in pop culture realize that they are being had by another agenda?

    When will the self-loathing of the Europeans and their descendents everywhere ever be satiated?

    Will generation Z finally be the group that says enough is enough?

  • Precisely. Perhaps this has something to do with Islamophobia bill in Parliament?

    And another question, is the media censorship bill pending in Canada have any bearing on the recent Trudeau vacation with George Soros? That man is capable of orchestrating anything.

    Trudeau is a babe in the woods when messing with an old Nazi collaborator like Soros. He is capable of anything. His foundations supported 49 of the 51 groups licensed by Washington DC to protest the inaugeration.

    It is not yet clear who was funding the rioters at Berkeley.

  • Trump and the WHA…

    If you are a pro hockey fan, I don’t know if you remember the time when the NHL was challenged by the existence of a new League called the World Hockey Association. There are some remnants of that era even today, the Winnipeg Jets, and Edmonton Oilers come to mind.

    I don’t remember all the details, because I was young at the time but in general the players in the NHL did not like how they were being treated and paid and when the WHA offered better some of them left, including arguably the NHL’s biggest star, Bobby Hull. The WHA did not last long, ’72 to ’79 but long enough to cause some of the changes necessary in the NHL.

    I bring this up because it seems perhaps one of the best analogies to the Trump phenomenon. The analogy is not perfect, of course, but it helps the mind to understanding the principle.

    It is my belief and the belief of many that over the recent past going back as far as the 19th century at least, if not further, that the politics that we see, left and right, whig and tory, republican and democrat, conservative and liberal, etc. are really teams playing within the same league. The competition is fierce and the partisans are vocal and it is great sport. The political media are just like the sports media, all with their own special teams and special players, but in the end it is all the same sports bar mindset, talking about the same league.

    Enter Trump. He was voted to be captain of one of the teams on the basis that he was going to change the league, challenge the league owners and board of directors. His agenda is way bigger than just winning a championship or a cup. He wants to change the league itself.

    Imperfect analogy, yes, but it gets to the point that is driving Trump and his supporters. He wants a home-grown league owned and operated once more by the people, not foreign owned, and defacto part of a world association that can dictate the rules of play within America, as well as its prosperity.

    Like the idea or not, that is what is being played out. Will he be successful? That is hard to determine at this point. The opposition is fierce and has many useful idiots at its disposal, most who don’t have any clue what the real stakes are and who they are actually playing for.

  • Another flash mob

    Love the harmonies in this one. There is nothing more uplifting musically than human voices…
