Notorious and insufferable conceit

Flea cites Blazing Cat Fur quoting Sea Kitten. Not certain what history will make of our kind - provided, of course, there is anything passing for history in our future socialist Utopia/Caliphate. But a note to future historians regardless: We were the sane people.

What a mess is Canada. Thanks to the long domination of the liberal left there, journalists are hauled up before kangaroo courts for accurately quoting European Muslims, the indigenous live in squalid zoo-like reservations sniffing petrol, and now we see near-pogroms on university campuses organized by executive officers of student unions. Recently the American Political Science Association announced it was reconsidering Toronto as a venue for its annual conference because of the threat to academic freedom in the country. And of course all this exists side-by-side with the notorious and insufferable conceit of Canadian mainstream opinion which regards itself as probably the most enlightened country in the world.

It’s important to realise that the ugly turn Canada has taken is entirely a consequence of the influence of the “soft” left-wing politics similar to the kind that HP espouses, and not the work of a handful of extremists preying on an otherwise healthy body-politic. If you want to fight fascism, fight the liberal left, which by undermining traditional values facilitates the extremists. If you want a society fit for human beings where Jews and other minorities of ethnicity or intellectual viewpoint are safe, promote conservatism.
