2nd Part : Modern Canada Has No Right To Celebrate Vimy Ridge
Total Articles: 33
Sadly the current ethos in left-wing Canada is one of anti-reality. All cultures are great. White history is racist and imperialist. Islam is a religion. Wars are stupid. If only women ran the world all would be good. If you want military strength this means that you are a fascist-American-Jew loving-illegal immigrant hating-capitalist pig. Such are the deep thinking responses to current world affairs propagated by Marxists and moral relativists.
The importance of the Canadian victory at Vimy Ridge 90 years ago cannot be under-estimated. One of the most important battles of the Great War was won in less than one day by well-trained, and extremely disciplined Canadian troops. The Canadian divisions under Sir Arthur Currie were ready for the battle; extensively trained behind their own lines; provided with robust and detailed intelligence; and they used modern methods including platoon level decision making and coordination, as well as deep tunneling to set off explosions near the German lines, to ensure that the bloody French defeats in which 150.000 French died trying to take Vimy, did not occur again. It was perhaps, as many historians have commented, the ‘first modern battle’.
Ironically at Vimy Ridge Canada had gathered over 40.000 fighting men to assault German lines. Today it’s fighting army numbers less than 20.000. In one day Canada lost 3.500 young men in taking an important hill in German lines. Yet today 40 odd die in Afghanistan during 5 years of fighting and most Canadians in recent polls say they want to end Canada’s military role overseas.
Victory at Vimy created a country. A nation from sea to sea fought and died in northern France to stop German militarism from dominating Europe and eradicating liberty. For honor, for country, for King and Queen and in support of alliances, obligations and freedom, did young Canadian men go to far off places and die in their thousands. Such sentiments are almost extinct in today’s narcissistic society.
Canada sent 11 % of its total population overseas to Europe during World War One. Only New Zealand sent more. The Canadians lost 40.000 dead and 60.000 injured, or fully 10% of the entire force. The Germans suffered 6 million casualties [50% of their total force]; the French 5.6 million [80% of their total force]; the British 3 million [30 % of their total force]. Like so much in the 20th century the horrors of this war shaped so much else to follow. The French for example lost 560.000 at the 2nd battle of Verdun. This failed battle has informed French attitudes and conviction towards war and the military ever since.
The Canadians of 1917 are different than the spoilt multi-cult low-culture Canadians of today. Misinformed through historical revisionism; anti-military; anti-American; anti-Semitic; even anti-British empire, the Canadian of today has little claim on the glory of Vimy Ridge. The men at Vimy knew who they were, why they fought, and why war was sometimes an ugly horrific necessity.
The same cannot be said of a country that disingenuously shrouds itself in the military uniform of bygone heroes to pump up its ‘national pride’ whilst it simultaneously eradicates its own history, culture and military power.
It is sheer galling hypocrisy.
