Russia is a joke. Communist-occupied China is the one to watch. They plan to be world hegemon by 2049. They're testing American resolve right now.

In the Leddihnian sense, the reason why the identitarian strain of the alt-right and the the identitarian 'left' so resemble one another, is that both are subsets of leftist thinking.

Has Bernier said he'd form a coalition with CPC in event of a neck-and-neck, or is it still a spite campaign?

First, any news posted on The Populist Canadian has a hyperlink to the source in question. That's why the source name is always in bold and red.

Second, your rudimentary French is laudable. That said, it'll save you time and effort to get the Google Translate plug-in, which automatically translates dead or foreign languages into English.

The article: "A flame purification ceremony was held in 2019 to burn around thirty banned books, for educational purposes . The ashes were used as fertilizer to plant a tree and thus turn from negative to positive . A video for students explains the process: We bury the ashes of racism, discrimination and stereotypes in the hope that we will grow up in an inclusive country where all can live in prosperity and security ."

"Similar ceremonies were to be held in each of the schools, but the pandemic postponed them until later. The initial idea of ​​burning all the books was also dismissed, fearing an outcry from parents and teachers."

Came here to say this: they're mentally deficient heretics.

Reformed church. It's pantheistic bullshit with a Christian veneer.

There is something at least respectable about the real heresies: Albigensianism / Cathars, Arianism, etc. They started with a strong theological difference. These reformed sects start with a socio-cultural nostalgia for the Christian worldview and backfill with eastern / gnostic hogshit.

Pathetic.

I cannot recommend enough Erik Kuehnelt-Leddihn's discussion of the advantages of a monarchy over a republic / other systems in Liberty or Equality. Full PDF: https://cdn.mises.org/Liberty%20or%20Equality%20The%20Challenge%20of%20Our%20Time_4.pdf

That said, I think by and in his Portland Declaration (https://www.memeamericagifagain.com/post/the-portland-declaration), there is a realization that if you're going to have a republic, it best have as many checks and balances as possible to prevent tyranny by the majority. (A non-deferential Supreme Court; bicameral house; a limited executive; strong regional and local rights, etc.). Side note: the PM here has far more power over our lives than the president does over citizens lives in the US.

Yeah big time. I also think it's a great narrative twist in the history of the modern world that the Soviets would do so much damage only to fall to pieces, then let the CCP (which betrayed them constantly) reap the benefit.

Lloyd George was a Hitler sycophant. (Also the father of the English provider state.)

Yeah; around the time he was shopping around for a pardon in the US (which he got from Trump_ and "according to court documents reviewed by the Globe and Mail’s Robert Fife in 2016, [had] been in Canada on a temporary residency permit up to that year." He was playing the political game to move the needle on his residency standing.

C'mon man. Conrad has been bashing the LPC and Trudeau for several months. And he credits the CPC as a party while underscoring his affinity for the person of Bernier.

If any more overt then it won't read as satire but as a polemic. That's where the left's humor fails: it's just gratuitous; lacking in all subtlety.

It's worth revisiting Stephen R.C. Hicks' "Explaining Postmodernism". The left has intentionally abandoned reason. It's phenomenology (navigating pseudo-reality via feeling contra reason) all the way, rather than empiricism and rationalism. Even the old Marxists feigned to be scientific materialists, which relies upon a form of rationalism. Not the new left.

They can hold that all religions are evil, but that Islam is a religion of peace; that there is a gender wage gap, but there is no such thing as biologically-linked gender; that there is no truth, but that leftist claims are true; etc. There is no good will in their political debating anymore. They will say and do anything to seize more control over life and death, more power.

The only thing the left is consistent about is its inconsistency.

Entirely possible and I would say a reasonable contention. Giving ground lets them take ground.

I would note that the greater weakness of the LPC contra the CPC in this particular decade will be ruinous in light of Communist-occupied China's hundred year marathon, now in its final stretch. Were the international implications of a NDP-LPC coalition or another LPC government not so consequential (i.e. for the West), I'd say let the left continue to activate conservative sentiments. We can't run the risk.

Time to take a realpolitik approach to this election. Consider it triage. Slow the bleeding.

Don't get me wrong, there was a hot minute where I was going to go in as a speech writer for a PPC candidate. The party has good people and it's policy is solid in some areas. That said, it's best long-term strategy will be to grow amid a fiscally-conservative, socially-liberal series of CPC minorities, and then once robust enough in terms of seats and name recognition--offering of course a socially-conservative or at the very least libertarian alternative--push for a merger (not unlike Alliance, Reform; Wild Rose, Alberta Alliance) and thereafter steer the resulting People's Conservative Party to the right on social issues.

Of course, Bernier will again get pushed out, because everyone knows he's a vindictive, legacy-hungry frog, and no right-wing populist surge contingent on Western support will ever succeed in this nation with a Quebecer at the helm.

Yes, there is certainly an appeal to a party that has so little chance of making any headway that the leader can spout off and speak freely. Bernier at least talks about liberty whereas Elizabeth May, formerly in a similar position, talked about aliens. It might be nice to build the antipode to the Greens and have as much (or little) clout. But having a voice on the Hill when Canada is destitute and unrecoverable is useless.

The fact of the matter is that the PPC in this cycle is a great set of Bomber shocks on a street bike: it'll absorb your energy and give you nothing substantial in return.

If the Liberals don't win a minority, they might form a coalition with the NDP, and Canada will never recover. If the Liberals win a minority, Canada will never recover. If the Liberals win a majority, Canada will never recover. (Assuming it can recover if any or all of the leftist /statist trends underway are soon stopped and or reversed.)

O'Toole wasn't among my top 3 choices (Lewis seemed like an obvious pick going back to the realpolitik here needed), and I'll forever resent the fact that Pierre dropped out. That said--and I'm not a dyed-in-the-wool Tory--it seems that toy hammer or not, if O'Toole and the CPC's present line up can't unmoor the Liberals, then if and when the PPC gets a chance to shine, it'll be in total darkness and only to rule rubble.

lol that's pretty funny. If PPC could get over 8 points, it'd be worth opening Photoshop.

It's going to be a satisfying upset, and Trudeau has only himself to blame.
