The One True Church (i.e. the Holy Roman Catholic Church) has outlived all of its detractors, critics, and persecutors. Even its enemies laud its staying power.

Thomas Babington Macaulay, neither a Catholic or a friend of the Church, had this to say in 1840:

"There is not, and there never was on this earth, a work of human policy so well deserving of examination as the Roman Catholic Church. The history of that Church joins together the two great ages of human civilisation. No other institution is left standing which carries the mind back to the times when the smoke of sacrifice rose from the Pantheon, and when camelopards and tigers bounded in the Flavian amphitheatre. The proudest royal houses are but of yesterday, when compared with the line of the Supreme Pontiffs. That line we trace back in an unbroken series, from the Pope who crowned Napoleon in the nineteenth century to the Pope who crowned Pepin in the eighth; and far beyond the time of Pepin the august dynasty extends, till it is lost in the twilight of fable. The republic of Venice came next in antiquity. But the republic of Venice was modern when compared with the Papacy; and the republic of Venice is gone, and the Papacy remains. The Papacy remains, not in decay, not a mere antique, but full of life and youthful vigour. The Catholic Church is still sending forth to the farthest ends of the world missionaries as zealous as those who landed in Kent with Augustin, and still confronting hostile kings with the same spirit with which she confronted Attila. The number of her children is greater than in any former age. Her acquisitions in the New World have more than compensated for what she has lost in the Old. Her spiritual ascendency extends over the vast countries which lie between the plains of the Missouri and Cape Horn, countries which a century hence, may not improbably contain a population as large as that which now inhabits Europe. The members of her communion are certainly not fewer than a hundred and fifty millions; and it will be difficult to show that all other Christian sects united amount to a hundred and twenty millions. Nor do we see any sign which indicates that the term of her long dominion is approaching. She saw the commencement of all the governments and of all the ecclesiastical establishments that now exist in the world; and we feel no assurance that she is not destined to see the end of them all. She was great and respected before the Saxon had set foot on Britain, before the Frank had passed the Rhine, when Grecian eloquence still flourished at Antioch, when idols were still worshipped in the temple of Mecca. And she may still exist in undiminished vigour when some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St. Paul's."

Disagree. Lot of conservative parishes throughout Canada. The problem is less theological or religious and more cultural. For instance, the Conservatives (i.e. Tories) used to be trenchantly anti-Catholic WASPs, so Irish and Italian Catholics would vote in Liberals. Overtime they became partisan, even though the Liberal party became the party of cutting of boys cocks, abortion, euthanasia, anti-Christian bigotry, etc. The key is waking people up. Education would normally be the best route, but the Catholic school board has been corrupted by a generation of Alinskyite / Marcusian apostates.

Go on LinkedIn or Indeed. Apply for skilled jobs and get them to sponsor your visa. If you don't have a post-graduate degree or unique skills, take some online courses and up your game.

I think it largely comes down to diocese and pastor. The Catholic Church, for instance, is full of kickass conservative parishes notwithstanding the Liberation-Theology bent of the current Vicar of Christ. There are plenty of Evangelical and Anglican sects that are also pretty good, in terms of close adherence to tradition (despite their heretical roots, etc.). As with all things, communities and faiths are saved by individuals and or destroyed by mindless mobs.

Nonsense. All of the top Hiterlians recognized they were advancing identitarian socialism.

If you don't feel like reading Leddihn's phenomenal book, I've penned a piece on the Leftism of the alt-right that might ruffle your feathers: https://www.memeamericagifagain.com/post/kuehnelt-leddihn-revisited-the-leftism-of-the-alt-right

Function of identity politics where statists are concerned is just this: divide and conquer; preclude the working class from thinking about how the ruling elites are destroying their prospects. Conservative populism is the route forward.

Ryan Long's stuff is great. (I haven't given the podcast a chance, but the skits are hilarious.)

Wait until you see the receipt for warehousing all those boomers who didn't save up, refused to have kids, and need to be kept alive by the state.

Lol, the best part is that the cartoonist is a total statist and would lose his mind to see it used to good effect.

Boot Quebec out of Canada. Equalization payments bankroll their lunacy.

I only have the GIFs up on PopCan because that's what I was doing on the American side where it's ported nicely to Gab and Parler, at least when they're working. I like the idea of only having two punchy GIFs at the top and then the fat-free link dump along the lines you've suggested, with insightful (contra inflammatory) headlines.
