The Establishment Exists in Canada

Much has been made of the ‘New Nationalism’ sweeping the Western world, from the #Brexit victory in the United Kingdom to the unfathomable Donald Trump presidency in the U.S.

One major component in this new Nationalism is the recognition of the elite Establishment class, and the rejection thereof.

Certainly it is a common thought that in America, the long-time leaders of each party are practically indistinguishable. Sold as two separate creatures (and at one time they were), Americans have come to realize it is but a two-headed serpent – no matter which side of the line you stand on, the true intentions of your leaders are identical.

As I post this, Sen. John McCain is making a fool of himself (yet again) by unleashing a string of media sound bites critical of President Trump which would make even the strongest McCain supporter wonder why he never targets the Democrats with such venom.

And McCain, who has long poisoned any Vietnam POW cache with his dumbassery, is just one of several known GOP names spending the past month or so attacking their President instead of their natural political enemies, the DNC.

So why are some Republicans attacking their own?

Ronald Reagan was bang-on in his iconic A Time for Choosing speech when he said:

“You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream — the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order — or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.”

Through systematic implementation of their agenda via such concepts as unfettered multiculturalism, environmental hysteria, etc. plus the use of the Progressive bible - Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the Establishment has literally established themselves.

Even in Canada, currently led by globalist lackey and former part-time drama teacher PM Justin Trudeau, the elitist Establishment exists (how else could this man-child get elected?).

But like the U.S., the virus isn’t limited to the far-left.  A few months ago, I attended a rally protesting the provincial government at the Alberta Legislature in which the aftermath included criticism from some famous Conservative party MPs and members.  Usually I would have no issue with this except said criticism focused not on the subject of the rally, but instead was directed at the crowd and even specific reporters covering the event.

Am I the only one who has noticed a few veteran (read: Establishment) Conservative MPs and groupies seem to hold The Rebel in lower esteem than they do the dangerous and dysfunctional Liberal government?

As the federal Conservative machine goes about choosing their new leader, the party should keep in mind the reality that Canadians, like our American and European cousins, are embracing the New Nationalism.

We have come to recognize that the elitist Establishment exists here.  The Conservative party must recognize, especially in a time where the Liberals are beginning to push their agenda via their #M103 ‘Anti-Islamophobia law’, that Canadians are no longer shackled by formulated ‘political correctness’.

If Canada survives the Justin Trudeau experiment, Canadians will be searching for a leader from outside of the Establishment.  To select an old crony is to ignore the current reality.
