Organized black bloc militants have toppled the statue of Canada’s first prime minister, John Macdonald, in Montreal. They used umbrellas & sheets to shield their criminal comrades. The statue’s head broke off as it crashed to the ground. #BLM pic.twitter.com/ViarNxmJbh— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 29, 2020

Far-left rioters in Montreal, Canada have toppled the 120-year-old statue of the country’s first prime minister. They claim it represents colonialism and white nationalism. #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/HZJqksjwej— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 29, 2020
That time Sir John A. MacDonald wanted to ban Chinese people from voting because he wanted to preserve the racial purity of Canada’s “Aryan character.”https://t.co/qmWQYJGoi6 pic.twitter.com/kFwLHYMXB3— Luke LeBrun (@_llebrun) August 30, 2020
It was never going to stay confined to the United States.
None of this originated in North America. It was exported from Europe: Modernism, Marxism, Antifa, anarchism, antiracism, the avant-garde, postmodernism, critical theory, etc. There is a direct line that runs from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon through Baudelaire through the avant-garde to the black bloc. The same spirit is there: hyper alienation, shocking the bourgeois, tearing down the foundations of society as “liberation,” identification with the “marginalized” and the “oppressed.”
Liberalism has absorbed all this destructive garbage like a sponge. Seen from their perspective, you are the “extremist” for opposing these people tearing down your country. You being some type of racial, ethnic or religious traditionalist. The political establishment is liberal and modernist.
