One of my twitter mutuals recently posted this tweet:
The Alberta legislature recently ran a short essay contest for young women aged 17-25. The results page has been taken down and many bees placed in bonnets because of the third place essay.
So as this chap is interested in many of the same issues that galvanize me I thought I’d read it, and it struck a cord with me. It also struck me that it had officially been obliterated, as it was only accessible through Web.Archive, consequently I thought I would repost it here, with some minor edits to introduce paragraphs in order to make it easier to read (the original is here if you would like to read it, it just got pushed into one giant paragraph making it difficult to read):
Women have a unique strength: our ability to give birth. This strength cannot be justly undermined, underestimated, or demeaned, for without it none of us would be alive today, our way of life and our culture would vanish, our very species would cease to exist. While it is sadly popular nowadays to think that the world would be better off without humans, or that Albertan children are unnecessary as we can import foreigners to replace ourselves, this is a sickly mentality that amounts to a drive for cultural suicide.
The first rule of health for any biological population is their ability to reproduce and pass along their way of life into the future. Women are not exactly equal to men. This biological reality is also under attack by present-day delusion. To try to promote that women break into careers that men traditionally dominate is not only misguided, but it is harmful.
Such a focus detracts from the languishing unique strength and the truly important role that women have in the preservation of our community, culture, and species. Unfortunately, present day government policies all-too-often have this misguided and harmful aim. Many women now realize in their late 30s that they actually want a child after having been taught that career was what mattered earlier in their lives, and they then regret not having done it earlier, when they were in their prime. Others couldn’t afford to have children when they were younger.
Sadly, having children is an expensive burden in our modern society. It is this way because our society has become oriented around personal greed and selfish and hedonistic goals [Stewie: e.g. LGBT as an aspirational lifestyle]. Families who are trying to raise children are competing for resources such as housing, and are at a disadvantage in this environment. And while there is some government assistance for people with children, it is primarily focused on the lowest income parents, so it provides little help to middle class families.
My vision of Alberta is a place that is oriented around healthy families and communities again, not around personal greed and selfishness. Recognizing children as being of the utmost importance in our society would be the cornerstone of such a future.
Unity among people requires shared common values, and the importance of children and family are the most fundamental values of any healthy population, so this is also the place to start towards achieving greater unity among presently-divided Albertans.
As a future parliamentarian, I would promote healthy appreciation for the value that young Albertan women have in their ability to carry our population forward into the future. I believe that the best approach would be to reward families for their reproductive service both with financial rewards to offset the financial burden they are taking on and with medals to symbolize their valuable achievement of having 2+ children.
Encouraging our society to reorient in this healthier perspective would provide the greatest good for Alberta going forward and would alleviate many of the problems that we are currently facing.– S. SILVER
These are, imho, statements of inherent TRUTH. They are fact of common sense – they are exceedingly obvious to anyone who is prepared to think about the issues this woman spoke of.
Obviously this created an enormous shit storm in Alberta from Femanazis, Diversity Fascists and the usual LGBT brigade – all amplified by the msm who are overwhelmingly populated by those three groups and thus incredibly motivated to portray the essay as negatively as possible, until of course the inevitable – the essay was disavowed as racist and removed from the site.
Alberta cabinet minister disavows racist, sexist essay that won prize:
Alberta’s associate minister in charge of women’s issues Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk says that an essay with sexist, racist and white nationalist elements never should have been awarded a prize in a contest for young women launched earlier this year.
The author, identified only as S. Silver, won third prize in the “Her Vision Inspires” contest….
…”Rakhi Pancholi, the NDP MLA for Edmonton-Whitemud, said no one from the NDP caucus was involved. She demanded the government release the names of the MLAs who were so they can explain how the essay was chosen in the first place.
“I am deeply troubled by this,” she said.
“I’d like to know how this happened and how it happened without anybody raising the alarms and saying this is inappropriate. Not just inappropriate. This is tantamount to hate speech.” …
…”The content is abhorrent and does not reflect the views of the Speaker or the Legislative Assembly Office.”
…”Lise Gotell, professor of women’s and gender studies at the University of Alberta, said the views promulgated in the essay about providing medals and money to encourage women to have more children reflect programs in Nazi Germany. “
“This essay is not only sexist, it is also quite racist,” she said.– https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/alberta-cabinet-minister-disavows-racist-sexist-essay-that-won-prize-1.6546032
NOTHING in that essay was hateful, it was love of our society, our children and a call for participating in the future. The author made no mention of race, merely that we should be aiming towards forging a common culture, i.e. immigrants become Australian or Canadian, rather than defining themselves as separate cultural and ethnic communities within our nations.
With the essay itself removed any semi-inquisitive member’s of the public curious as to what was written will only be able to access it through MSM articles which consist of quotes from conflicted and biased commentators, as well as a few selective, out of context passages from the essay itself. Ironically these people will walk away from reading the article probably agreeing that the essay was racist, while at the same time considering themselves to be well read and well informed.
This was also one of the reasons why it was necessary to remove the essay from public view. Any reasonable patriotic and family orientated person who read that essay would probably find themselves agreeing with large parts of it, maybe not all of it, but certainly some of the truths the author dared to utter – this would not do! Only the media’s narrative (propaganda) can be allowed to endure.
We’re not a society anymore, but an the Economic Zone Formally Known as the West. Our cultural heritage is being obliterated, our unity being dismantled and our ability to have a family squeezed out – and all the time while we are being lectured, nah, screamed at – that if we dare notice or dare suggest an alternative then we are hateful, racist, misogynistic, Nazis.
Honestly, we are being gaslighted into extinction by our academic, business and political elites.
