Slowly But Exceeding Small: Canadian Example Suggests Good U.S. Election in 2016.


As the Poet


said

Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind
exceeding small;
Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness
grinds He all

A
quarter-century ago (aargh!)



Peter Brimelow

published The Patriot Game,
an iconoclastic


re-
evaluation

of the Canadian polity. At last, it appears the
development he predicted is being implemented in the
upcoming election:



“…the Tories may be finally resorting to the strategy


advocated

by political scientist

[!] Peter
Brimelow in 2005: `While w:st="on">Quebec is at the centre
of every major government decision … the natural
conservative tendencies of
[English Canada]
will continue to be frustrated. For the Canadian Right,
the road to power lies not through w:st="on">Quebec, but around it…`


“For
five years, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has
disregarded this advice and courted the w:st="on">Quebec vote… The result? Zip… it should be no
surprise that in 2011 the Tories are setting their
sights elsewhere.”





Who needs Quebec?

What Brimelow saw was that the much-vaunted




“Canadian Nationalism”

which under the



leftist Pierre Trudeau

had



caused a wholesale eradication of much-loved English
Canadian symbols

(including links with the U.K), and the imposition of



an absurd policy of bilingualism
,
was a fraud. It was simply a deal whereby the Canadian
English-speaking (“Anglophone”
in Canadaspeak) Left bought the electoral support of the
large but intensely parochial population of Francophone
voters



in the Province of Quebec.


The result has been the



plundering and oppression of the Anglophone segment of
Canada
.
Quebec
is heavily subsidized and, while



bilingualism

was being



imposed elsewhere
,
the use of English was



repressed in Quebec through provincial legislation.

The parallel with w:st="on">America is obvious. The American
Left seeks to rule through a coalition of minorities, to
oppress and plunder the historic American nation –
a.k.a. Whites. Initially, of course, the strategy was
less blatant because of the size of the non-white
population. But the 1965 Immigration Act is fixing that.


The indicated response is the same: unify and mobilize
the Anglophone/White vote. At VDARE.com we choose to
call it the
“Sailer Strategy”
.


To say the Patriot
Game
analysis was before its time is an
understatement. It was greeted with a



combination of incredulity and rage

subsequently



seen again

when Brimelow published
Alien Nation in the U.S.


But after about 15 years a politician emerged who made
it his business to merge the scattered English-Canadian
political parties:



Stephen Harper
.
Quite early on he was



reported to have been influenced by
The
Patriot Game.

Since 2006 he has been Prime Minister of Canada,
although never with a majority in Parliament.


As the 2010 Congressional elections



unfortunately showed
,
just because a



certain coalition wins power for someone

does not mean its requirements will be respected. Harper
has compiled a contemptible record, doing nothing about
Canada`s iniquitous



anti-Free Speech laws,

conniving at continued



massive third-world immigration

and, of course, as Tasha Kheiriddin notes, pathetically
pandering to Quebec.


In this, he unquestionably was following the preferences
of the Ontario Establishment, who play a similar
corrupting function as the



Inside the Beltway

crowd in American affairs.



But it hasn`t worked!

And apparently Harper has drawn sensible conclusions.
Kheiriddin reports in



Quebec-bashing,
Part Deux

(National Post,
Apr 1, 2011 (Note the Ontario Establishment hostile spin
on the headline).


“…the
Conservatives seem to be writing off
Quebec

in this election. Quebecers are frankly puzzled by this;
it flies in the face of the usual coziness displayed
toward the province at voting time.


But it
is consistent with the Plan B approach the Tories seem
to be adopting in their quest for a majority: go around
Quebec
,



not through it
. By appearing almost anti-Quebec, they
actually shore up their support in



parts of the country
who have little regard
for la belle province.” [

In a fairly democratic state, just as in a fairly free
market, eventually the public`s needs are
accommodated—or to put it another way, eventually the
major fault lines show up. Peter Brimelow`s



first major piece on immigration

was published in 1992 and




Alien Nation

was



published

in 1995. VDARE.com has stressed the political
consequences of the immigration deluge from



our beginning
.


Curiously, America`s
political system appears



less flexible than Canada`s

and there is some reason to believe the leaders of the
other side here are more



consciously determined
.
These things take time.


But on the Canadian showing, with the Anglophone/Quebec
servitude perhaps ending, we can look forward to an
important and interesting Presidential year in 2016.
