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?
