Kebekois separatists learn nothing from their abject failures, but still continue out of desperation
The May 12, 2014 defeat of Pauline Maurois's Parti Kebekois does not still the dream of a separate Kebek nation. The Parti Kebekois was trounced by the Kebek Liberal Party because they refuse to face reality and cling to the hopes and dreams of an arrogant idiot who thought that he was God's gift to Kebek, whereas he was really an absolute failure. But like all those of his ilk Rene Levesque was great in his own mind to the point that he thought he could do no wrong. This former Kebekois who served in the U.S. Forces during World War II, boasted that he was fluent in English, but that was just not true, since the English that he spoke was what he learned while serving with GI's and every second word that he uttered was CRAP that only proved that he served with the U.S. Army.
Pauline Marois and the Parti Kebekois was not only defeated but she also lost her own seat and resigned as leader of the Parti Kebekois. But, that did not stop her from envisioning that the Part Kebekois would rise again from the ashes like a phoenix, and lead the Kebekois to independence. But, the pipe dream of Marois has run out of funds to buy more opium to smoke in their pipes.
Now, from the Societe-Saint-Jean- Baptiste come another loser and former president of that organisation to become leader of the Bloque Kebekois and enter the Canadian Parliament and receive his wages from federal government. Now here is a separatist who finds absolutely nothing wrong with accepting his pay from a country wants the province of Kebek leave. Old podge as he is known in some circles is an overweight gorgon and thinks that he has a personality.
I have had my run in with this pseudo Kebekois intellectual before, and wasted my time because he is a dyed in the wool Franco-Amerindian who likes to boasts that he is French, which is NOT the case at all, his features are Amerindian and this belies his very statements. He is a Kebekois no doubt about it, but possibly from coureur-de--bois (Metis woodsman) and Amerindian stock.
But into this fray comes another wedge, many of the young Kebekois, in the universities are now no longer followers of the pipe dream of men like Rene Levesque, Lucien Bouchard, Jacques Parizeau, Bernard Landry and Pauline Marois and now want to go out into the world and become leaders of business and industry, which they cannot do if they cannot speak English. Thus, they would rather learn English and make inroads into international corporations, rather than stagnate in Kebek, a linguistic gulag created by out of date politicians and ideas, which was reminiscent of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union of yesteryear. These young Kebekois are a forward looking bunch, who have learned that they were lead down the garden path by mindless morons, who claimed to be the saviours of Kebekois culture, language and religion, none of which was ever true, their political leaders were really charlatans who were exploiting the people of Kebek for their own aims and not for the good of the people or the province, which before the advent of separatism was economically sound and self-sufficient. It is now up to this new generation of young adventurous Kebekois that can lead the way to the future where all the people of Kebek can work as a team and remove all the bug bears that divided them on racial, linguistic and religious grounds. Kebek can once more profit from the experience of all its citizens and bring back a measure of progress through the unity of its peoples.
