If you see this man in Quebec, arrest him

Also lawbreakers like this guy, or this one, or this one.  Under Quebec law, they’re effectively criminals, you know.


  1. Adam says:

    “If adopted by the legislature, the plan would apply to every public servant; civil authorities like judges, police, and prosecutors; public daycare workers; teachers and school employees; hospital workers; and municipal personnel.”

    Since when is the Pope part of the Quebec civil service? And bravo to la belle province for bringing separation of church and state to Canada.

  2. Kev says:

    I hope the PQ gets its ass handed to it, legally and politically, over this racist, xenophobic crap, but unless the Pope is working in the Quebec public sector, what’s illegal in your rhetorical example?

  3. Michael Bussiere says:

    Here’s a twist. How about the faux RCs who wear a crucifix as a fashion item only but are avowed agnostics?

  4. G. Babbitt says:

    So you can wear a crucifix as long as you hide under your clothing. So couldn’t you were a burka as long as you were another burka on top of it.

    The Atavistic Impulse

    “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme” – Twain

    In 2008, Gilles Duceppes, then leader of the Parti Quebecois Party, ranted, “I say to all the Uncle Toms from Quebec that are in Ottawa!…” – offensive on a number of levels. The Parti Quebecois under Pauline Marois as the Marine Le Pen of “les Nègres blancs d’Amérique” has announced the Quebec Charter – a stringent plan to remove all “religious” symbols from the civic sphere of the Quebecois State. To understand the dynamics of this social purification movement, it is helpful to observe the national/tribal purification movements the Parti Quebecois allude to.

    Robert Mugabe was educated by Marist Brothers and Jesuit schools, including the exclusive Kutama College, headed by an Irish priest, Father Jerome O’Hea. Mugabe went on to obtain a BA degree from the University of Fort Hare and subsequently earned six further degrees through distance learning including a Bachelor of Administration and Bachelor of Education from the University of South Africa and a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Laws, Master of Science, and Master of Laws, all from the University of London External Programme. He was perhaps the most educated Zimbabwean of his generation. During his university studies, Mugabe was deeply indoctrinated into hardline Marxism/Maoism which was expressed as resistance and “indigenization” movements, an extreme, xenophobic nationalism, and an idealization of the Shona Empires.

    As Mugabe increased in power, any and all dissent was quashed – whether black or white, insider or outsider. At rallies he enjoined his followers to throw away their shoes declaring them contaminated objects of European colonialism (this did not stop the Magabes making frequent shopping excursion to London and Paris to fill their wardrobes a la Emelda Marcos.) Zimbabwe, once the breadbasket of Africa, experienced a precipitous economic collapse; intense hyperinflation rendered the currency essentially worthless, paper money blowing along the gutters. The vicious circle of indigenization and the drive to pre-industrial mores returned Zimbabwe to the law of the jungle. Mugabe launched wave after wave of resettlement and expropriation (“cleaning up the garbage”). Millions became refugees, tens of thousands were executed in genocides, often with Mugabe utilizing his North Korean (a Chinese supported dictatorship) trained “5 Brigade. Like dictator Idi Amin who expelled Whites and Asian, there has been a mass exodus from Zimbabwe.

    While the Mugabe regime became the pariah of Africa and the Mugabe’s were banned from entering the EU, Mugabe’s “all-weather” friend China continues to richly support the cash-strapped regime – since 2000 pouring more than $2 billion into mining, agriculture and manufacturing and providing one million t-shirts for the Mugabe regime propaganda initiatives. China last year extended a $98 million loan to his government to build a military training academy, to be repaid over 13 years in diamonds mined by Chinese companies in Mutate, eastern Zimbabwe. Acquiescing to money for power – the great and almost universal irony of most communists/socialists. Indeed, the MO of the Chinese Communist Party is to exploit/leverage social cleavages, create and/or exploit social chaos as a means to expand its sphere of corporate influence and procur assets/resource strip globally. Follow the money.

    Pol Pot’s ideology crystalized from seemingly contradictory sources. He learned to read and write from Catholic nuns under the watchful eye of the Jesuits. As a student in Paris, besides a thorough indoctrination into Stalinist infused French Communism, the Parisians implanted their odd colonial notion that Khmers were “Aryans among Asians,” morally superior to other Asians. Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge elite were the most educated Cambodians of their generation. This mélange of Jesuitism, Stalinism-cum-Maoism (Pol Pot witnessed and was inpired by the Cultural Revolution), an extreme, xenophobic version of Khmer nationalism, an idealization of the ancient Angkor Empire (802–1431), and an existential fear for the existence of the Cambodian state (historically under Vietnamese and Siamese intervention) eventually led to one of the most intense totalitarian experiments in history.

    Now convinced that the agrian highland tribes were the purest expression of Communism, the Khmer Rouge emptied Phnom Penh of all its inhabitants, including the old, sick, dying, babies and nursing mothers, out into the jungle at the start of “year zero.” Hospitals, medicine, doctors, books, art, intellectuals, professionals, really anyone with any education, modern industry and its products – all of this was seen as contaminated, impure and was destroyed and abandoned – money blew along the streets as in Hararee. The genocide that was to follow according to a UN investigation was 2–3 million dead; UNICEF estimated 3 million had been killed – roughly half of the deaths being due to executions and the rest from starvation and disease.

    China was Pol Pot’s primary backer: large quantities of Chinese-made ordnances and 20 000 Chinese advisers provided their support to the Khmer Rouge regime. What must now seem an absurd and pyrrhic victory for Cambodians was seen as a necessary evil to keep Ivan the Terrible at bay. The Western democracies continued to support the murderous regime of Pol Pot in the U.N. and elsewhere despite the fact they themselves had acknowledged the Khmer Rouge were the most meticulous and efficient mass-murderers since Hitler and National Socialism. The reason: America and Great Britain did not want to upset their new trading partner China. Acquiescing to power for money – the inherent contradiction of laissezfaireism: aquiring private property through an ideology dedicated to its elimination (“the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: abolition of private property” – Marx).

    The Quebecois elite followed similar psychosocial patterns of development. The Trudeaus all attended the prestigious Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf a private French Jesuit school and a bastion of Quebec nationalism. In Trudeau senior’s time, the clerically influenced dictatorships of António de Oliveira Salazar in Portugal (the Estado Novo), Francisco Franco in Spain, and Marshal Philippe Pétain in Vichy France were seen as political models for Quebec. Like Pol Pot, Pierre Trudeau loved to disappear for long periods into the bush and held a deeply romantic notion of the Quebecois voyager or Black Robe among the Aboriginal people – pure and manly cultures uncorrupted by the vices of industrialized man.

    Trudeau augemented the deeply nationalistic and often clerical-fascist infused ideology of Quebecois supremacism with Marxism under the mentorship of British socialist Harold Laski. Trudeau’s defense of Communists was broad: he visited China four times between 1960 and 1979 and was apologist to Mao Zedong and his heirs; in 1973, he defended Mao’s policies in Canada’s Parliament willfully blind to a system responsible for the deaths of some 80 million people. In 1981, Trudeau expressed sympathy for Poland’s General Wojciech Jaruzelski – he banned Solidarity and jailed or sent into hiding its leaders, including Lech Walesa. In 1983, Trudeau declared in Parliament that he simply “couldn’t believe” the Soviets would knowingly destroy a commercial airliner – this was after the Kremlin finally admitted knowing that Korean Air Flight 007 was a passenger plane, and justified shooting it down along with its 269 passengers because it was “spying.” And of course, the Trudeaus’ lifelong admiration and friendship with Cuban Marxist-Lennist dictator Fidel Castro (another Jesuit trained clerical-fascist cum socialist superman) is well known. Brother one and two continue in their veneration of socialist supermen like Castro and Chavez.

    Pauline Marois, current PQ leader, was raised in an environment of intense nationalism and devout Catholicism. She attended Collège Jésus-Marie de Sillery, an exclusive, all-girl, Catholic private school attended by Quebecois elites. Accordint to her autobiography Québécoise!, the October Crisis had a profound impact on Marois. “I arrived in the Outaouais as a French Canadian. I left the region identifying forever as a Quebecer.” The notion that the FLQ was a Quebec separatist and Marxist-Leninist paramilitary group, responsible for over 160 violent incidents which killed eight people and injured many more, including the bombing of the Montreal Stock Exchange, culminating in the kidnapping of British Trade Commissioner James Cross and murder of Quebec Labour Minister Pierre Laporte never seems to enter into the Marois equation. Quebecois supremacisim is now official policy in Quebec. The recent introduction of the Quebec Charter that seeks to ban all religious symbols from Quebec is another milestone on the road to a purified Quebec – inevitably, something akin to Idi Amin’s tribal purge of Asian and white outsiders will occur in Quebec – year zero of the Quebecois.

    As in Cambodia and Zimbabwe, the conservative or reactionary factions generally maintained an environment of deep social stagnation and corruption – King Sihinouk was spending about one fifth of revenue on sporting events, the Rhodesian elite remained enconsed in their clubs over gin and tonics. The recent Canadian senate expense scandal has all ring of despotic cronyism. While the Canadian economy languishes, the social safety net is all but gutted, upemployment keeps nudging up especially among the young (news sources are reported that a university education is becoming increasingly worthless), Conservative and Liberal senators have been living high on the hog, Mugabe style.

    Amidst this gross financial mismanagement, it has been reported that the Harper regime has entered into deals with the Chinese Communist Party to allow the Chinese to extract mineral in exchange for cash – deals essentially the same as Mugabe’s diamond mine deal to finance his military training facility. Political scientists note that the Canadian executive holds more concentrated power than any other democratic leader. The G20 “riots” – the largest mass incarcertion in Canadian history – saw hundreds of innocent citizens caught up, detained without trial, often handcuffed and caged to luxuriate in their own exrement. “Just watch me!” the perennial slogan of Canadian leaders. 30 August, 2013, the National Post online ran the headline, “China’s defense chief meets with Tory ministers in secretive trip to Canada.” The lead image of Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan showed a small desk sign, “Cambodia” – presumably the photographer was not at the right angle for a clear shot – although, given the nature of current technology and propaganda, the serious analyst must wonder whether this was a deliberate allusion. Few historical events say, “we mean business” like Cambodia.

    Like Quebecois supremacists, the Conservative milieu is deeply influenced by primitivist instincts. Many Conservative MPs believe the notion that the earth is only six or seven thousand years old and that men walked among dinosaurs. Many believe birth control should be criminalized as well as abortion, even cases where a woman’s life is in jeopardy. Many Conservatives are part of religious networks that believe that non-heterosexuality should be criminalized; some are connected to powerful lobby groups in the United States that are behind efforts in Uganda and other countries that tried to make “sodomy” a crime punishable by death. The atavistic impluse is extremely strong in the Conservative milieu to return society to a “pure” form of primitive Christianity.

    Minister of Multiculturalism Jason Kenney – trained by the Jesuits at the University of San Francisco – wants many more traditionalist minded immigrants. Reportedly, the Chinese-Canadian community nicknamed Kenney the “Smiling Buddha” (Pol Pot spent one year in a Buddhist monestary and was revered as the gentle, smiling Buddha) in reference to his efforts to garner ethnic votes on the basis of commonly held conservative values. Kenney and other Conservative nabobs have taken on that Kurtzian glow. Indeed, the dream of one or two hundred million boatloads of tempory foreign workers to wash away native Canadians contaminated with the Enlightenment vices of rationalism, empiricsim, and the rule of law burns brightly as we race backwards. Kenney justified his efforts to gain ethnic support by stating: “You observe how these new Canadians live their lives. They are the personification of Margaret Thatcher’s aspirational class.” Note, this was the same Margaret Thatcher who continued to recognize the Khmer Rouge in the United Nations so as to not upset Britain’s new ally and trading partner China. Indeed, the millions of Cambodians who were worked literally to death or executed for not working hard enough or for not being “pure” enough are a model for the future Canada and Quebecois nations. Work makes free. Liberation through revolutionary suicide. The beginning of Year Zero and the return to the law of the jungle.

    It’s not Quebec law. It’s just a pander that isn’t actually going to pass. It’s still horrible… but it’s not law and never will be.

  7. Patrick says:

    Generally I would agree with anything that perpetuates the separation of church and state and don’t even disagree, in principle. with the removal of religious trinkets and displays in our government services. But it is impractical and counter productive in reality since all that will be accomplished is to enflame the faithful and further entrench dying myths. Better to let them wither away of their own accord and suffer the displays of magic crosses, cloths and beans.

    • Ian Howard says:

      This isn’t the separation of church and state it is the separation of freedom and religion.

      • patrick says:

        People are free to believe whatever they wish, but it’s just not on display at government offices. I think it’s very much a separation of church and state. Pointless and counter productive,(possibly intentionally as an other poster here has pointed out), but hardly an infringement on what a person believes.

  8. Stig says:

    I guess the swastika is now okay. And why not?. It is only the oldest religious symbol the world has ever known.

    Myself, being a worshiper of Priapus, and a pious member, I must say, who gives libations at least twice daily, it shall be a privilege to have the same opportunity to letting the public know it, every time I greet them as a public servant.

  9. Ian Howard says:

    Whats his crime?

    White after labor day.

  10. kre8tv says:

    I’m wondering why Justice Minister Bertrand St-Arnaud has not yet changed his last name. After all, I can’t think of a more obvious religious symbol than being named after a christian saint. And since his salary is on the public dime, this seems like fair game to me. Oh and while we’re at it, there’s a whole whack of urban landmarks that will need to be addressed: Notre Dame de Grace, Montreal Jewish Hospital, Sainte Foy, Mont Sainte Anne, Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, the cross on Mont Royale, St. Viateur Bagels (hey that last one is *like* an institution)…

    Any suggestions on what new last-name would best suit Bertrand? Oh I can think of a few…
