One of the very reasons why groups like the Council of Euro-Canadians and the Fédération des Québécois de souche exist is that European-derived peoples have — over the last few decades — put compliance to political correctness over the defense of their own interests in their list of priorities. These peoples have embraced all the PC lunacies even though they do not benefit from them and, in fact, they are actually endangered by them in the long run. The trend in Western countries has been to defend the interests of other peoples while consciously suppressing our own interests. The recent rise of so-called populist parties and politicians is an indicator that orthodoxy to political correctness might be losing its primacy.
With people starting to feel physically threatened by the joys of mass immigration, the time for euphemisms and utopian lies might very well be over. In fact, it could even be said that by playing the card of political incorrectness, true or feigned, politicians are gaining support. Refusing to parrot the euphemisms promoted by the media has been considered as a badge of honor.
Needless to say, so far Canada has been immune to this movement of change. The recent election of Justin Trudeau and the liberalization of the Conservative Party demonstrate that in Canada the point of no return has not yet been passed. Multiculturalist propaganda has worked wonders in the country of the maple leaf and most Euro-Canadians still feel that what is most important is following the flock and refusing to see the obvious.
For those who believe this sad state of affairs will never change, the recent election of Jean-François Lisée as leader of the separatist Parti Québécois might come as a surprise. The recent leadership race with the PQ was led by Alexandre Cloutier who might be described as a separatist version of Justin Trudeau. On societal issues, Cloutier was an admirer of Trudeau the son and went even further by promising to launch a commission on systemic racism.
Lisée on the other hand promised to put the interest of the people of Quebec first and fight for independence even if that meant being sometimes politically incorrect. Despite what Quebec's premier said, Lisée must not be taken for an ethnic nationalist or a "far rightist." He is actually an independentist and feels the priority should be independence, not compliance to the multiculturalist agenda. That is why he was not scared to talk about a sharp decrease in immigration, imposing assimilation rather then integration to the Canadian inspired mosaic and the ban of the burqa.
Against all odds and despite the media campaign against him, Lisée managed to win with a significant majority, thus proving that among separatists, political correctness is not the most decisive factor anymore. As was stated before, Lisée is far from being an ethnic nationalist like Raould Roy, Raymond Barbeau, Paul Bouchard and Father Lionel Groulx. But his election, like the election of Trump as the Republican presidential candidate, the referendum on Brexit and the most recent elections in Europe, marks the doom of the supremacy of political correctness on public discourse. The media that still cling to this outdated vision are losing their audience and find themselves separated from the citizens by an ever increasing gap.
