A Sense of  Unease comes with the Destruction of Traditions

Do you feel it?  The kid at the electronics store says “Happy ‘Holidays’, Sir”   I reply quite seriously,  “Merry Christmas to you too.”  He looks at me with the strangest look, like I am wrong, somehow. Do you feel it?

With Christmas just around the corner once again, It is no small feat to accept the fact that our traditions  as we know them — as WE know them —are  being surreptitiously nibbled away, altered and challenged, perhaps even permanently damaged in ways unacceptable to our culture, faith, our very sense of identity, and perhaps even our very existence as an established society.  A sense of unease comes with the destruction of traditions. Our traditions. North American traditions. Christian traditions. Christmas traditions. Our culture.

Let’s face it, smiling  ‘politically-correct’ hypocrites, political activists, social manipulators all, — including the uninformed,  would have Canada appeasing, and sucking up  kow-towing,  —yes, even actively destroying our culture and requiring  all people in North America to say  “Happy Holidays” to everyone because they somehow imagine it ‘insults’ visible minorities from all other cultures to say “Merry Christmas” in the Christian tradition. —Tradition we have come to know and love. Traditions that rightfully belong to us.

These “feel good” social manipulators  attempt to appease dissatisfied, arrogant whiners and complainers people who, yes, may be immigrants, and yes, may be sorely missing their homelands and their  own culture —regardless of their country of origin, colour, religion, and traditions. The ‘manipulators’ coyly  suggest and infer that the  complainants and  ‘whiners’, all visible minorites, of course are somehow “insulted” by our Christmas traditions practiced for hundreds of years,   and imply that  it is the duty of Canadians  to accept change and mollify hurt  feelings.

The truth IS, the “insult” itself is a half-truth at best,  a delusion fabricated  by social manipulators with an agenda of their own.

Let us not  misconstrue or  misunderstand;  some  individuals who might “be insulted” by our wishing them a “Merry Christmas”   are certainly NOT  typical or the majority.  Why?  The majority of immigrants are very happy to be in a new country offering better economic opportunities and lives free of fear and being free to practice their own religion and tradition as they see fit.

They are not cut from the same cloth typified by  bitter, archaic delusion. The specific individuals from “other countries ” quite happily take  advantage of the freedom and benefits of the North American way of life, use the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms against Canadians themselves. They also wish, and in some cases, deviously and fully plan, even with violence, —to change Canada and all of  North America to their own interpretation of laws, religion, faith, beliefs, culture and traditions. Make no mistake about it.  Those individuals do exist, but they are few and far between. Worth repeating,  trouble-makers DO  exist, and that is the typical complainant, but let us NOT stereotype and tar and feather all immigrants. Please.

How about applying common sense?

Some individuals do come to Canada from other lands to angrily USE Canada’s passports, legal system, generous refugee and social support systems, and reputation of global trust—with seeds of hate and treason planted in their minds, and  with destruction of traditions and other belief systems  in their hearts and souls. Their intention is to destroy all other traditions, including their own, at any cost.  Make sense? Of course not. How can that be?

What’s the problem?

Just as ‘lone wolves’ in recent terrorist attacks in Canada  arbitrarily converted to their own interpretation of  Islam,  they equally decided Canada and it’s structure, civilization and Christian values were no longer acceptable, and  no longer “suited” them.   Let us be clear on that point and emphasize the fact that Canadian values DO NOT suit them.  Does that mean those individuals could go live happily exiled in some Mid-Eastern country? Not necessarily. Should Canada or the USA or other civilized nations tolerate these individuals as a clear and present danger to innocent lives everywhere?  Clearly not.

Will the same individuals  be accepted by brutal, self-aggrandizing organizations like ISIL, the murderous Taliban or Boko Haram?  Of course, because those organizations, too, are not restrained by civilized values.  But…wait….what, you ask, does this all have to do with the destruction of traditions?

Catering to Lunatics

Think, dear readers. If you do not respect and protect your OWN  culture, faith, values, and  belief system  enough to keep and protect it, how can you expect others to respect your values, tradition and culture?  Our “politically-correct” element is happily denigrating, reducing, and destroying our culture in an attempt to cater to lunatics, who  we have already demonstrated, are satisfied with NOTHING.  Surprised?  Really surprised?  The politically-correct are catering endlessly to whiners and lunatics at a cost too great to quantify.

What’s the fix?

Hypocrites, social manipulators and the politically asleep in their naivety and by their own hands,  are virtually begging  that your faith, religion, your beliefs,  your culture, your celebrations, your education, and your traditional way of life, your very country— be ignored, flouted, and taken advantage of, even destroyed entirely by fringe elements.  All under the pretense of  “generating respect and ‘promoting inclusive social policy’ and ‘tolerance’ .

Think, people. You ARE entitled to your own traditions; and you do not have to change Canadian laws or reduce, change or denigrate Canadian values—to avoid “insulting” dissatisfied, unhappy people from other countries.

Canadians  do NOT have to give away OUR culture —to be respectful  of OTHER cultures.  Get it?

What’s the fix? It’s plain as day isn’t it?   Smarten up, and think… Say “Merry Christmas” to the kid at the electronics shop…  That ought to be a good start. Tell haughty, self-righteous politically-correct manipulators  to get stuffed. That’s even better.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Happy New Year and all the best for 2015 too.

 

 

Is that Incoming I hear?

  1. Aha! Let’s protect our Canadian culture and traditions. We have an identity, and we can’t be overly polite to the point that people walk all over us! Thanks Raymond for bringing clarity here. I wish you a beautiful Christmas with your family!

    • Christyb, interestingly, some people “think” Canada has no culture or identity, the fact is, we sure DO. All we have to do is have our “politicians” and “leaders” NOT give it away, allow our culture and traditions to be whitewashed or diluted, and be VERY clear about it. There is a problem in the status quo, no doubt about it. Can you imagine, some time back, an ethnic group wanted to have Sharia law installed in Ontario? How ridiculous is that? Thank you for commenting, Christyb, and may you and yours have the most wonderful and Merry Christmas ever–and a Happy New year! ~R

  2. Dawn says:

    Raymond, It is that way in the United States as well. I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments about Happy Holidays. It is a crock of bull. Very well said.

    • Thank you Dawn, all of North America is suffering from the same kind of “political correctness” that is manipulative, systemic rot -and it is an endless attack. If WE do not protect our culture, who will? Thanks for commenting, Dawn, and Merry Christmas to you and yours, we hope you have the BEST EVER. ~R
