A friend of mine recently linked me to an interesting new Canadian identitarian group called ID Canada. Their website is very professional and simple, they even have a little shop where you can buy stickers, flags and other merch. They describe themselves as an Ethno-Nationalist and Identitarian youth movement. Basically, that means they focus entirely on race, identity, and culture. A quote from their mission statement:
“Canada is a nation of Europeans values, traditions, customs and culture. Canada was never meant to be a melting pot of third-world migration.“
Is ID Canada a Political Party?
No, they are a youth “activist” group that aims to spread awareness of mainly mass immigration to Canada. Why don’t they want to become an official political party to change official Canadian policy? Well, the leaders of this organization are obviously not complete retards. They probably realize you can’t run a political party that only focuses on immigration. The chances of winning the election are extremely low considering the fact that new immigrants are now a considerable portion of the Canadian population. Toronto is considered the most diverse city in the world according to BBC. Foreign-born residents make up 51% of Toronto’s population of 2,731,571 (as of 2016). In a fair democracy to win the election, you will have to debate various issues such as economics and, foreign policy. The vast majority of citizens care more about those issues than identity and immigration. Canada’s democracy is quite strange and makes it nearly impossible for smaller parties to gain any traction.
It’s very difficult for small political parties to compete with the mainstream parties
This is because of the first past the post system. To become Prime Minister your party needs to have the most seats in the house of commons. Your party must have candidates elected in the various electoral districts or “constituencies” or “ridings” to win a seat for your party. So, when Canadians are voting they wouldn’t see Justin Trudeau on their ballot like Americans would see Donald Trump. They would see various names like John Smith or Mohammad Alalababa with the political party they are a member of. If you want to elect Justin Trudeau you will need to select the liberal candidate.
Can the identitarian movement gain any major traction in Canada?
Identity Canada appears to be very inspired by the various popular identitarian groups in Western Europe. Groups like generation identitaire have been very successful. However, what works in Europe will not necessarily work in North America. European’s have a stronger sense of identity because their ancestors have been there for thousands of years. Their blood is deep in the soil. European nations have also been over 90% European until very recently when migrants from drastically different cultures flooded in very quickly. This obviously shocked a lot of citizens. Suddenly their countries went from peaceful to nearly a war zone.
Europeans have only been in North America for a few hundred years. Although we are descended from pioneers we don’t feel connected to the land. It’s easy for the regime and state-sponsored propaganda outlets to guilt us into feeling unattached to the land by mentioning how we invaded and pushed the Native Americans aside. We are told Canada and the United States are a nation of immigrants, we’re all descended from immigrants so we should invite more in and shut up about it. ID Canada wants to counter this through their “activism” but will they gain any traction?
What Canadians care about
Do Canadians really care about immigration and demographic shifts? Do Canadians really want to defend their culture and ancestors? From my experience, they do not. Especially Canadians under 30. Young urban Canadians have grown up in a multicultural mess and that’s all they know. Perhaps ID Canada will have luck recruiting people in rural towns who are just getting a taste of that wonderful diversity. ID Canada wants to keep their group youthful by restricting membership to people under 35. This is not a good idea because it restricts good older folks from joining and providing much-needed wisdom and guidance.
Canadians are worried mainly about money. Although Canada has free healthcare, they are still capitalistic. This is because the means of production (factories, workplaces, warehouses etc…) are privately owned. The young are still drowning in student loan debt (although college and uni are a bit cheaper than the US they are still expected to pay). Rent prices (esp in the city) keep rising and they are worried about paying their bills. For most jobs, you need to live close to the city. Wages aren’t rising fast enough to keep up with real estate prices. The low and working class Canadians experience financial misery just as much as Americans.
Those who slip through the cracks of society are pushed aside and forgotten about. Toronto has an extremely large homeless population. You can’t walk down the street in Toronto without having at least 10-20 hobos beg for spare change. It’s so depressing. Although refugees get everything they need (housing/transportation/welfare cheques), citizens are living on the street. Economics can’t be ignored, they are extremely important. Failing to mention economic misery will restrict ID Canada’s potential member base to those who are either upper middle class or rich or to those who are not aware of what blights the majority of the populace.
Capitalism and Nationalism
I wrote an article awhile ago about how capitalism and nationalism are not at all compatible. Most Canadians, especially the young already have an unfavourable opinion of capitalism. Barely any nationalists talk about how mass immigration is beneficial to the capitalist ruling class. Capitalists like shifting other countries populations like shifting workers from one factory to another. Their goal is to inflate the labour market to lower wages. Diversity is the capitalists strength, to keep wages low and people divided by culture. So they fight each other instead of targeting the capitalist who uses them as wage-slaves. ID Canada would gain a lot more traction if they pointed out this simple fact. This will make young anti-capitalist Canadians disapprove of mass immigration because they will realize that the liberal bourgeois characters like Trudeau don’t truly give a shit about non-whites, they just want to exploit them like they exploit the Canadian workers.
Folks like ID Canada need to think deeper instead of falling into the pitfalls of American White Nationalism. Multiculturalism is a lot more than an evil plot to exterminate Europeans. A mixed-race future is inevitable with such mass immigration by why would this be beneficial to those in power? Why do they care? What purpose do these immigrants serve? Think!
Capitalists want to make maximum profits and protect themselves against a socialist revolution. They are only loyal to money not nation. Multiculturalism is the perfect tool to create division so the working class attacks each other. The Capitalists laugh as poor whites and non-whites battle each other because it means they are not fighting against the Capitalist system and advocating for the abolition of their precious private property.
ID Canada can either go nowhere by protecting the capitalist system like a bunch of useful idiots or become a serious threat to the regime by attacking capitalist economics. Advocating for less non-white immigration isn’t enough – you have to think deeper and attack the reasons why this is happening. I personally will not support a group that refuses to address the serious problem of the capitalist plague.
