Maxime Bernier says there’s such a thing as too much diversity — and Canadian establishment explodes!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

This week, Maxime Bernier made a series of tweets about Justin Trudeau’s endless mantra, that’s he’s trying to make into an unofficial Canadian motto: Diversity is our strength.

Bernier was responding to Trudeau's visit to the scene of the Toronto Danforth shooting, where that was the PM's key message.

So Bernier weighed in on Twitter:

Trudeau keeps pushing his “diversity is our strength” slogan. Yes, Canada is a huge and diverse country. This diversity is part of us and should be celebrated. But where do we draw the line? (...)

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? (...)

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.

TONIGHT I'll look at Bernier's tweets in depth, and ask: What is the objection?

I think many Canadians, including many immigrants, would agree with him.

Surprisingly, Andrew Scheer did not throw Bernier under the bus — rather, he simply hid from the cameras, and had an assistant read out a message in favour of diversity and inclusion.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming Conservative Party Convention.

I wonder whose party it really is. Is it really the party of Andrew Scheer — fear of the CBC; love for the Quebec Dairy cartel; terror about anything regarding culture, national identity, patriotism.

Or is it the party of confident, patriotic conservatism, that has enough self-respect to stand up to statue-destroyers and history-deleters?

NEXT: Aaron Gunn of BC Proud, comes on to talk about the scandalous removal of a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald in Victoria.

THEN: I'm joined by Yasmine Mohammed, author of Confessions of an Ex-Muslim, to discuss Boris Johnson's comments about the burqa.

Sheer is nothing but a want to be Liberal. He’s gutless, non-responsive and a complete embarrassment to the Conservative party. How he even got close to the head of the party is beyond me. This is the end of the Conservatives and welcome back Trudeau for round #2 of screwing this country up, waste of skin.

Tina, I was living in Montreal when the Parti Quebecois got elected and the statue of Nelson got removed. After that streets started getting re-named. After that Anglos started leaving in droves.

I was equally appalled when the Cornwallis statue, the founder of Halifax, was also swept away. A figure that I learnt about in school as someone to revere, not someone to smear. The CBC at the time called him " Halifax’s controversial founder". That he is controversial or was controversial is nothing they taught us back in the good old days. We just learned the facts in history class. We were not insecure or insane enough to judge him by our own high and current moral standards. We honored him with a statue for his achievements of the time. Shame on him that he didn’t meet the moral standards of a society 270 years ahead of his time. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Diversity. I have never seen red ants and black ants function together at all. Reds on one side and blacks on the other—diverse.

Weasels and UN butt kissers like Scheer are proof that the country is already lost, in the sense that it’s not your country anymore. In Poland and Hungary they already got it, and now even in Australia they’re starting to get it.

- Remind me again, what “non-White” countries are big on diversity?
Paul, there are none. But the left wing narrative is ignore problems anywhere but in the west. So in their call out the those in the west were the only slaveholders in the world ever, The fact that the west were the first nations to ban slavery as a response to the Bible’s teaching is also ignored. In fact Christianity is despised in spite of the good they have done simply because they have done it- it runs contrary to the narrative.

I don’t know if you have watched Bill Whittle’s video treatment the history of The Narrative. Here it is:

No respect for sovereignty and shared values = doormat, nothing but a postal box, an address, an empty vessel to piss in.

You cannot flash flood a country with the third world and expect to survive as a nation. Its madness.
Jamie MacMaster that is one epic ditty.

“The thing is, though, Ireland can be easily defined as an island by several empirical methods. (can you paddle a boat around it? ) –” It would be an impractically long paddle and how would you know it was Ireland? People who tell tall tales of leprichauns and banshees are hardly reliable witnesses. And how would you know that you did not just circumnavigate a land locked sea or that large lake in the center of Ireland.

For as absurd as it might sound there is no criteria of proof that Ireland is an island that would satisfy the tenents of the philosophy called “skepticism”….lawyers are taught this as their first lesson in court room rhetoric. All evidence is based on acceptance of trusted expert authority and sworn testimony. Truth be known you may be very confident that you “know” that Ireland is an island….but you only “know” that because the Royal Geographic Society told you so with graphic representation. This is the same bunch of Freemasons and Illuminati who have been keeping Atlantis off the maps…Ireland is a peninsula and the island myth is just a scam to rip off exorbidant ferry tolls from gullible tourists.

And don’t bother trying to fool me with GOOGLE EARTH…….printing the word IRELAND in yellow font is hogwash…you don’t see anything like that from low earth orbit…..:-)

Your sophistry about Canadian diversity has not persuaded me that I want an imigration policy that is a form of permitting invasion.

“I for one think that being able to define Canadian so broadly, is actually a core part of being Canadian – diversity truly is our strength.”

Then how come any and all of the Canadian diversity you describe gets spotted in very short order and run off of moslem no go zones? Is that not entirely contrary to the diversity you celebrate? Insular enclaves are not diversity….they are conquored territory.

ANDREW…That “define our identity” is as obteuse a form of rhetoric as “you can’t prove that Ireland is an island” (I actually attended a pre-law lecture which demonstrates that point.) "

The thing is, though, Ireland can be easily defined as an island by several empirical methods. (can you paddle a boat around it? ) – is there so easy definitive trait for “Canadians”? You’ve insisted that it’s super-clear, but haven’t actually said what it is that make it so, nor even what particular flavour stands for the core Canadian identity – a gay socialist with a PhD in basket weaving who lives in downtown Toronto is very different from the guy who runs cattle in Alberta’s foothills, from the third-generation Sikh in the Fraser Valley. All are Canadian, but how it manifests is very different. “Je ne sais quoi” (“I don’t know what”) indeed. It’s very hard to define and very dynamic. I think it’s hard to claim that something so indistict, and so dynamic, can be threatened by continued change.

I for one think that being able to define Canadian so broadly, is actually a core part of being Canadian – diversity truly is our strength.

Deborah Graupner,
Good thing the liberals/left don’t have a thing to fear from us brain damaged, pussy canuks!!
We have showed them all we have no pride, honour, patriotism or BALLS so, they have NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT as they continue on with the complete eradication of canada, canadians and everything canada and pro life!
Now, if that isn’t INSANITY, I don’t know what the hell is!
I simply don’t know what is more dangerous to life, islam or the left!

Paul McCullough , I agree with and respect your comment but you do realize that those of us who see what is going on yet continue to pay the taxes, reward this treason and treachery while bowing to it are in fact COMPLICIT AND TRAITORS OURSELVES !
In short we deserve EVERYTHING/EVERY HORROR COMING OUR WAY and it is about to EXPLODE IN OUR FACES when trudeau or any other of the endless line of brain damaged, arrogant, anti canadian, self serving political whores are voted in and rewarded/paid and empowered by we "canadians’! Canada is DONE as are what is left of we “canadians”! We have ALLOWED IT WHILE REFUSING TO DO A THING TO STOP IT AND YES WE COULD HAVE STOPPED IT IF WE TRULY WANTED TO.
We might as well all start digging our graves because we have no where to run now !
NO one wants traitors and cowards invading their countries- especially when these very traitors and cowards had ONE OF THE BEST , SAFEST , MOST PROSPEROUS, DEMOCRATIC, PEACEFUL , ENVIED, STRONG,SOVEREIGN, RESPECTED COUNTRIES ON THE PLANET but all sat back and allowed its destruction!
commented 2018-08-15 12:26:19 -0400
eLECTING SCHEER OR THE NDP /LIBERALS is going to continue the eradication of canada and what is left of we canadians. Simple as that and I"m tired of trying to get through to the masses as they DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH BECAUSE TO QUOTE JACK NICHOLSON IN " A FEW GOOD MEN", YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH !
So, let the slaughter, rapes. destruction, death continue unabated via islam/ multiculturalism/ political correctness and left ideology/indoctrination (which as it appears is not much different than the islamic anti life ideology)!
The brain is officially dead here in canuckistan as will we be as well in the next decade or so!
Keep paying your taxes , rewarding the treason and the enemy, canuks!! You get everything you deserve! enjoy what you have left of life, freedom, democracy and peace!

- Remind me again, what “non-White” countries are big on diversity? Diversity means destroying the West. Climate alarmism is about draining wealth from the West. Trudeau is defeating himself & if the Conservatives had a leader they would be looking at making history.

- In the US they’re pulling down statues in order to 1) erase the Democrat’s racist history & 2) to erase American history. In Canada they’re pulling down statues to 1) erase references to parties other than the Liberals & 2) to erase Canadian history.

- I have a lot of respect for politicians that stand up to political correctness & refuse to back down. I have none for those who cave to them. Face coverings in public should not be allowed (except maybe on Halloween).

up until 9/11, there was GOOD REASON cultures and religions basically stuck to their own parts of the globe! Simply put, NOT ALL RELIGIONS AND CULTURES ARE COMPATIBLE WITH LIFE, FREEDOM OR PEACE.
The entire globe is now being cleansed by islam and they haven’t had to do a thing to hide their agenda of hate and destruction because since 9/11, the west (the last bastion against human and global demise) has welcomed, empowered, surrendered to, enriched and completely bowed to islam- the most violent, dangerous, anti life, hateful, radical, mentally ill, barbaric sub human ideology in the planets history!
We are in WWIII but sadly the politically correct, pro multiculturalism, left brainwashed/indoctrinated simply don’t get it!
lol there simply is no help for the brain damaged who sadly are the majority in what is left of the western world. The real kicker is the fact the ones allowing, empowering and rewarding the eradication of our western countries and we the citizens , ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM THE ENEMY AS THEY HATE THEM AS MUCH AS THEY DO THE REST OF US AND THESE ARROGANT, TREASONOUS, SERIOUSLY BRAIN DAMAGED WESTERNLEADERSARE ALL GOING DOWN WITH THE REST OF US!
All the wars , the building , protecting of freedoms, democracy,life, and the globe as a whole , was all for nothing!

Those things about you that would make you stick out like a sore thumb in other places in the world are your identity…..those things about you that would get you reported as a suspect spy if you were not really good at concealing them are your identity.

Canadians are not generic “grey men” regardless of what the globalists say.

“stephen hicken commented 1 hour ago
I still think there was some back room shenanigans at the Conservative election. 12 ballots to elect a leader ? and then we had to wait till early morning. Never happened like that before. Usually 3 ballots. The party elites didn’t want Bernier "

With a ranked ballot system, you keep holding runoffs until someone gets 50%+1. “usually” doesnt’ mean much, since it’s only the second leadership run the party has ever had, and in 2004, there were 3 candidates and Harper got 56% in the first ballot, ending it immediately.

This time, there were 13 candidates, with the top rank getting 29% in the first runoff. By the 10th runoff the frontrunner, still Bernier, only sat at 34%. By the 12th runoff, it was 40-38-22, and O’toole’s support broke slightly in favour of Scheer (about 59-41), enough to pull him into the lead. No funny stuff needed – it’s just how ranked balloting works, “second choices” matter, and a compromise candidate like Scheer will always do better than a divisive one like Bernier. The “divide and conquer” strategy, where a sizeable minority can win on a plurality even when the majority hate them but are divided among multiple candidates, only works with first-past-the-post type systems.

Finally a conservative politician having the courage to address political correctness and the elephant in the room.

In Orwell’s 1984, ‘Ignorance is Strength’ is one of the official slogans of the entity known only as “The Party”. Orwell opened his book in this way on purpose in order to introduce the reader to the concept of doublethink. In this way the Party can make citizens accept and believe anything they tell them, even if it is entirely illogical.
commented 2018-08-15 10:42:00 -0400
Stephen Hicken – exactly! Bernier led in 12 of 13 ballots. I don’t for a second believe he didn’t win. The fix was in! We are stuck with a fence sitter who waits for direction from the liberal party. Given his prior position, he shouldn’t have been allowed to run in the conservative leadership race.

It’s fun watching those liberal traitors lose their minds when they hear the truth. The louder they shriek, then we know they recognize the truth, and they don’t want the people to become wise to their plan to enslave us for Islam, the devil’s cult.
