Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia
in response to reader comment: Reasonable without the unnecessary insults

The comment was a bit harsh.

I get sick of the old "Quebec is anti-semitic" nonsense. We were no more anti-semitic in the early XXth century either. And the Jews today, viewed as the permanent scapegoat to Canadian problems. Well, it is still us. English-Canadians even love to pretend they were always on the right side of any issue, while pretending it is the French-Canadians who are to blame for all that is wrong.

You don't need to read a whole lot of newspapers comments to figure that one out. The gross hatred we're continually the target of is entirely disproportionate.

Saying "Quebec is anti-semitic" is basically a bad joke, in that it condemn a form of hatred, while the person who say it is basically making an argument that's hateful in itself. In general, Canadians are the most rude people there is, the stereotype of the "polite Canadian" is such nonsense. Cowardly perhaps, good mattered in public perhaps, but you won't ever find the degree of hatred for the French-Canadians targeted on any other minorities in Canada. Not even Muslims.

And of course, since we are as Israel surrounded by hundreds of millions of people who are hostile to our very presence (to a certain extent, which I know has nothing to do with the other). It is our religion too that preserved our national identity, Catholicism here is not just an insignificant detail. Montreal is being gutted and ruined from within, and English-Canada have the same reflex as ever: Blame French-Canadians. But sorry, Toronto pundits are missing the point entirely, Montreal is experiencing a "French-Flight". We know the white-flight happened all over the US in the past 50 years. The mafia and the gangs are going to take over. You'll have civic decay. Violence is going to rise and is rising already. Infrastructures are going to collapse, as they are now, and the problem is going to grow worst as the tax base move out to the suburb and is continually being replaced by an immigrant population. I am not kidding here, there is 60 000 immigrants to 80 000 live births a year in Quebec (more or less), most of those immigrants are staying in Montreal or in close proximity to it. What do you think this rate is creating, except a rapid replacement of the native population.

All this, as Jean Charest, which is basically your poodle have increased immigration every year in the same fashion as Tony Blair. That is, in an effort to be reelected (because they vote for him, always). See, when people talk against multiculturalism and they are English-Canadian, they have a certain understanding of it. But when we French-Canadian do it on the very same basis, it is wrong. Your core existence is not threatened. Ours is. It's not hysteria, keep this rate of immigration in Montreal... and by 2050, it will look like Detroit 2012. Because no matter how "unracist" you want to be, a city is not a social experiment and people need to live as neighbours who care for each others, and the cliché example is that Mr Goldberg, living next to a young gay couple, living next to a big bearded Imam with his three wives is not a recipe for social harmony.
