Regina Fooled by White Supremacist Group into Declaring ‘European Heritage Week’

National Post, August 21, 2013

Regina is the latest community to be fooled by a white supremacist group into declaring a “European Heritage Week.”

The city says it received the request from a group earlier this year and set aside the week of Oct. 14–20 for the designation.

Mayor Michael Fougere even signed a proclamation. The mayor says he didn’t realize that it was the Nationalist Party of Canada that made the request.

“We made a mistake, I admit that,” Fougere told the Regina Leader-Post, noting that a letter was sent on Tuesday to Bob Smith of the European Heritage Week Celebration Committee in Toronto. “But once we realized what it was, who they were, we absolutely want nothing to do with this group at all.

“It’s being a bit underhanded, a bit unfair to us,” he continued, saying Smith’s request was professional and made no mention of the Nationalist Party of Canada.

The organization’s website on Tuesday carried a post on its home page that congratulated Fougere for the declaration, as well as urging “white nationalists to write words of congratulations to the City of Regina and to the Mayor’s office.”

Fougere’s letter to Smith, however, forbids the group from publishing the event in association with the City of Regina.

“The City of Regina does not condone racism or hate in any form but rather takes great pride in and celebrates the diversity of all cultures and recognizes all ethnic backgrounds and their contributions to Regina and Canada’s history,” said the letter, which was obtained by the Leader-Post. The Toronto address on the letter is the same as the address on the party’s website.

Over the years Halifax, Victoria, Fredericton have made the same mistake, as have the three small towns of Midland and Parry Sound, Ont., and Cranbrook, B. C.

  • I have it!!! I have the cure!

    First, the white nationalists sponsor a black heritage week, or a MLK festival in Regina, and bring in hundreds and hundreds of Trayvons, Jesses, Als, and Shaniquas.

    Second, let the people, especially Mayor Michael Fougere, embrace the dogmatic greatness that is diversity.
    Then, once things are back to normal after diversity week (people released from the hospital, lowered into graves, and businesses have replaced stolen items), Regina can have its European Heritage Week. If you plan to attend, be on your absolute best behavior and pick up after yourself.

    Let those people experience both points of view, and draw their own conclusions.
    Here in Texas, we have the Texas Renaissance Festival, which looks like something out of medieval times. It’s popular, and open to everyone. However, we secretly acknowledge that it’s celebrating European heritage.

      I love RenFaires. Actually had a fairly well endowed grown woman come on to me at one when I was in middle school.

      Spot on. I [heart] TRF, and likely for much the same reason. I usually make it out for at least four weekends during the season. Except for the hotter weekends – during which I very rarely attend – out of 500 attendees, only one to two are Black. They tend to be uniformly, if uncharacteristically, well-behaved. Fancy that.

      Oh, wait, I forgot the police officers constantly on patrol…

  • Spartacus

    Fooled ? You scum ! The White race is what made Canada into a prosperous nation, from the wasteland of petty savage tribes it was before . And they don’t even get a week of recognition ?

    • Abo’s are Canada’s version of black people.
      Everything must celebrate them.
      Nothing can celebrate any other group.

      • Texan357

        In the U.S., literally every nonwhite group receives representation everywhere, from college campuses to Congress itself. Only when Whites choose to form a group is about race.

    • bigone4u

      You know how dangerous those whites are when they congregate in groups. All the shootings and beatings that we associate with the inferior race that is the white race.

      • Irishgirl

        Don’t forget the drive-by philosophical debates and blaring orchestral music.

    • Tacitus1

      That thought has crossed my mind when visiting that lovely country. Halifax and Victoria have a certain British feel while Quebec has a French flavor, which is not so bad.

  • You can see the thought process in play here.
    The only group who’d possibly see any merit a European Heritage Week, would have to be white supremacist as collectively Europeans have nothing to historically celebrate, as opposed to….insert any other group here.
    Without knowing firsthand, I wonder just how ‘supremacist’ is the Nationalist Party of Canada?
    I can in the same way that Larry Flint, the publisher of Hustler magazine became an unlikely hero for free speech, likewise the racial right wing will have to do the same as these progressive politics are just out of control.

  • “The City of Regina does not condone racism or hate in any form but rather takes great pride in and celebrates the diversity of all cultures and recognizes all ethnic backgrounds and their contributions to Regina and Canada’s history,”……yet goes and gets their panties in a wad over European Heritage Week being proposed? You really could not make it up.

    • cancerous bananna

      Yeah when I read that paragraph, my bullshit shovel was showing signs of snapping.. it was so bogged down!
      Celebrate every race but your own you scumbag!

      Good for that party.. expose them expose them for the treacherous bagg-lappers they are.

    White heritage is EVIL!!!!!!

    Hate thine enemy and plan his destruction.

    So what. Many white nations have been fooled by black supremacist groups declaring civil rights for a half century now.

    • Irishgirl

      Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 10,000 times, shame on me.

      • Franklin_Ryckaert

        For Bush three times were already enough, but you need 10,000 times?

  • BlarneyMiller

    Why are Black History Month and Asian Heritage Month considered an empowering positive, but European Heritage Week is a mistake?

    • Greg Thomas

      If you go to McDonalds, you can celebrate blackness 365 days a year. Imagine that.

  • Conrad

    I wonder if the whites in the area heard of this & learned anything? It’s a good thing that the Nationalist Party of Canada didn’t ask for them to do anything BAD?!

  • MBlanc46

    If I weren’t generally opposed to all such days, weeks, and months, I’d say “What’s wrong with European Heritage Week?”

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      It is wrong because it would be too short.

  • bigone4u

    Mayor Dimwit says white nationalist = white supremicist. Can somebody in Canada find a brain this guy can use. His is malfunctioning.

  • Freedom Hayak

    “The City of Regina does not condone racism or hate in any form but rather takes great pride in and celebrates the diversity of all cultures and recognizes all ethnic backgrounds and their contributions to Regina and Canada’s history,” said the letter, which was obtained by the Leader-Post. The Toronto address on the letter is the same as the address on the party’s website. Except the contribution to European culture, of course. He forgot to add that in.

  • Tacitus1

    What good has European heritage done for North America ? Nothing with the minor exceptions of creating written languages, curing diseases, building hospitals, founding universities, developing democratic government, fighting hunger, and improving the human condition.

  • Paul

    ‘The mayor says he didn’t realize that it was the Nationalist Party of Canada that made the request.’

    So what??

    If this is not grounds for a law suit I don’t know what is.

  • Non Humans

    I’m with you there. I started out as a realist on N-Mania, but they’re content is best for laughs and such. Plus it’s not palatable for anything practical.
    .
    Then I came to AmRen, VDare, and SBPDL because the information on these sites is palatable, practical, and are always based in fact and research.
    .
    That is what is needed for waking up the brainwashed idiots and nourishing the roots of any real change.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Sometimes you need to laugh.

  • RHG

    So all these Canadien towns were already to go with a “European Heritage Week” until they found out this supposed “white supremacist” group was behind the request? Ok then, what happens when the request comes from people who aren’t affiliated with this group and want to have European heritage celebrated just like every other culture is allowed to celebrate their heritage? This, afterall, is supposed to be about “diversity” as this mayor proudly proclaims.

  • IKantunderstand

    I’m sorry, but every week should celebrate Europeans . If it weren’t for Europeans, there would be no Canada, there would be no U.S., there would be no Australia. There would be no New Zealand. Oh, wait, since all races are equal, well then, I guess somebody from somewhere would have settled these lands. I don’t know. The Chinese in their great big exploratory sailing ships? The Indians? Or, wait a minute, the indigenous peoples of these lands, would have eventually gotten around to a written language, math, and, well, you know, civilization to rival Europe. My God, how much more can we take? We pretend all kinds of lies about non-whites are true. I have been suffering from a cultural marxism induced headache since 2001. Any suggestions? Like foment a revolution, take two aspirins, and call me when you win.

    • Sick of it

      The Chinese weren’t exactly the settler type. They did move to places where a certain level of civilization already existed and ply their trade as merchants. Otherwise, they seemed entirely uninterested. Much of China is empty land to this very day.

      • IKantunderstand

        Yeah, I know. I was being sarcastic. Must work on sarcasm skills.

  • Greg Thomas

    “The City of Regina does not condone racism or hate in any form but rather takes great pride in and celebrates the diversity of all cultures and recognizes all ethnic backgrounds and their contributions to Regina and Canada’s history,”

    That is unless unless you are asking to celebrate White European heritage. Then, you are just a vile “racist.”

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      One has to translate properly what “diversity” really means. Diversity means privileges for non-Whites at the cost of Whites. Whites are not supposed to partake of that. If they still try, then that is “racism” or “hate”. It is entirely consistent according to their logic.

  • Sloppo

    Has anyone ever heard of any traditionally non-white country celebrating any kind of European or white heritage anything?

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      Nah, that would be “hate”.

    • Texan357

      No. Not even when the goods parachute from the sky, since whatever tyrant is in control at the time will immediately seize them.

  • Franklin_Ryckaert

    Who is “us”?

  • Franklin_Ryckaert

    Yes, in an ideal world white liberals would be banned to non-white countries where they can enjoy 100% “diversity”.
