Demography is indeed the future. Why Trudeau will never be a full majority PM and why Canada may never have a conservative government - a thread.
Canada is the immigration headquarter of the world. Virtually anyone can immigrate to Canada - whether they want to move as a student, with a job, or with family.
Between 1815 to 1850, roughly 800,000 immigrants moved to Canada from all over the world but chiefly from the British Isles. It was the time when Europe was becoming richer through the Industrial Revolution.
But the steep population growth made people look for greener pastures, most looked towards North America as the new abode.
A batch of 400,000 moved to Canada during the First World War and another 282,000 migrated during the Second World War. The immigration then stopped for a while.
Then came 1976 and Canadian government revised the Immigration Act. That truly opened the gates of Canada for the rest of the world. Immigrants from South Asia, China and the Caribbean thronged the nation. Even by conservative estimates, Canada gets 300,000 immigrants annually.
Birth rate in Canada has been on a steady decline, however the birth rate decline is not homogenous. White Canadians are birthing around 1.5 kids per couple while all other “minorities” clock birth rates well over 2.25.
And this brings us to the title of the thread. Why Trudeau will never be a full majority PM and why Canada may never have a conservative government. There are three types of voter groups in Canada.
Canadian liberals, Canadian conservatives and new voters. Canadian Conservatives are numerically less than the liberals, which explains their current political state.
Canadian liberals are the largest voting bloc in the country but aren’t enough to take Trudeau past the majority line.
A decade back, new voters backed the liberal party resolutely for their migrant friendly policies. Now they vote for “their people”. Sikhs (most of them Khalistanis) are a strong and affluent “minority” in Canada, who overwhelmingly vote for Jagmeet Singh’s New Democratic Party.
New Democratic Party’s vote share has been on a steady rise in the past few years because of addition of “new citizens”. Muslims are also increasingly becoming strong in Canada and Canada may soon see a strong Islamist party.
In the next 2 decades it will be impossible for the Canadians to even feature in a government cabinet. A New Democratic-Islamist alliance government will rule with an iron fist till one of the factions overpowers the other. I’ll bet my money on the latter.
It’s not like Canada cannot be redeemed. Conservative Party will have to reach out to the liberal voters and urge them to save Canada from the invasion of new migrants. And then tighten immigration rule in the country. Though the chances of it happening is pretty slim.
Whoever controls demography, controls the destiny. Canada is an example for all countries as well as India. What’s minority today could be majority tomorrow and may be masters day after.

Team TFI did an expansive coverage of the brutality that took place exactly 100 years ago. @tfipost and @tfipost_in editors painstakingly went through books, newspaper archives and a lot of information to filter truth from propaganda.
What we found was absolutely horrifying.

In this thread, I will take you on a virtual tour of Malabar Hindu Genocide. It will shake your soul.
1) Do you know the seeds of Moplah Massacre were sown in the times of Hyder Ali and his tyrant son Tipu Sultan? Here is a truly forgotten chapter from Indian History.

Why you mustn’t feel bad about UK’s Covid racism against India. You should, in fact have a nice laugh about it - a thread.

I am even proposing a nice hashtag for them - #TechnicallyChallengedBrits
So the UK still living in the Great Britain Utopia has no idea what technology really is. First they couldn’t control coronavirus. Yes, despite being an Indian, I can say this with absolute confidence. UK registered 2022 deaths per million, for India the numbers were around 1366.
And that happened despite UK boasting of world class hospitals and great living conditions. India, despite a very high population density, managed to keep mortality rate very low.

Leftist journalists were running a cleverly orchestrated anti-Indian vaccine campaign possibly at the behest of global Big Pharma.

In the first phase of the campaign, they excessively criticised the vaccines. Narrative about general efficacy, and side effects were pushed.
The second phase of the campaign focused on a possible shortage of vaccines even after Indian government repeatedly told that there is absolutely no shortage of it. India’s decision to give vaccines to other countries was severely criticised too.
Third phase of the campaign was about the efficiency of the government itself.

Will India be able to vaccinate its massive population?

Does India have the infra to conduct such a large scale vaccination drive?

These were the questions that were thrown incessantly.

“The Mugal were champions of economy and they built a India theory demystified” - A thread

Numerically challenged, statistically unhinged and data noob liberals quote data to prove that Mughals were some sort of economic geniuses who led India to its most prosperous years.
According to data compiled by economic historian Angus Maddison:

“…as recently as 1700, Qing China and Mughal India each represented a little less than 25 per cent of world GDP”,

Liberal elites in media and academia latched on to it. This soon became the dominant narrative.
25% is a huge deal but this is what we can call a classic example of half truth.

So did Maddison lie? No she didn’t.
But she did hide (or overlooked) the data prior to the period she mentions. Hers was not the most detailed study.

What’s in the name: Taimur, Jahangir and mainstreaming of tyrants - a thread

What comes to your mind when you hear the word Aurangzeb?
A conceited man, an Islamist to the core, a Hindu hater, a tyrant who demolished countless temples, a frenzied mass murderer who killed countless Hindus.
What does the word Aurangzeb mean? It means “The glory of the throne”, such a beautiful name. Yet we see very few Aurangzebs around us. It’s because of the stigma attached to the name.

Social Media, Barack Obama and how it boomeranged (A thread)

First a little history:

It was Orkut that gave us our first social media experience. Some of us were even on High5 and MySpace. MySpace was the first social media site to reach a million monthly active users.
But by 2007 it was pretty much over. Come 2008, and Facebook had officially defeated it.

2008 was a tumultuous year. The financial Capital of India was under siege. The global economic system had collapsed. And the USA had its first black president - Barack Obama.
It was in this year that Facebook truly became a force to reckon with. MySpace was being embalmed for burial.

Barack Obama a hitherto unknown American politician suddenly became the top democratic nominee and went on to win the US Presidential election with a handsome margin.
