Anglosceptics in denial


We know the climatosceptics, who refuse to recognize that the survival of the planet is threatened. I present to you the Anglosceptics, who refuse to recognize that the survival of French is threatened.

Climate skeptics question global warming. Anglosceptics question the linguistic replacement of French by English.

Both are in denial.

White nationalist neurotics?

Every time I write chronicles about the meteoric rise of English, I get called a pain in the ass by the Anglos.

The multimillionaire Mitch Garber attacked me violently again because I dared to complain about a Canada that despises French. And Anne-Marie Withenshaw went to “like” a unilingual English publication “to piss off Sophie Durocher”, in other words just to make me “sweat”.

That bilingual Anglos deny the danger that threatens French is one thing, but when they are Francophones, that makes me sweat.

A francophone, Philippe C., wrote me a long email entitled “Revenez-en! “.

“And here are our perpetual whiners complaining, again and again and again, about French in Quebec. First of all, French “is not the only official language” here, because “here, it’s in Canada and in Canada there are two official languages. Just because your white nationalist neurotic community says otherwise doesn’t make a difference.

“Then, yes Montreal is bilingual. Actually more than that: multilingual with Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, etc. If this irritates you, you can always go to the depths of Quebec where you will only hear French. Again, massacred French in Quebec. You are dinosaurs. The problem being that you are dangerous dinosaurs. Those who want their children to remain as stupid as themselves. It is scary. People speak the languages ​​they want. FINAL POINT. And it’s not little white and French-speaking despots who are going to change that.

You can live only in French if you like. But don’t bother us with your “defense of French”. We are in 2023. Not in 1960.”

Welcome to the englishfest!

I regularly talk to you about Anglo businesses that don’t care about French. But what about the Francos who give names “in English” to their event?

As Gilles Proulx reminded us, the Gibelotte Festival in Sorel-Tracy is now called the Gib Fest.

I have written to the organizers asking for details. “The name Gib Fest was accepted by the CA of the Gib group, the founder of the festival and the City of Sorel-Tracy in November 2017. The process was very simple; revitalize a historical festival name, without completely distorting it. Since Gibelotte is no longer a dish served in the region almost outside the festival, keeping this word was less optimal.

“Thus, Gib is the diminutive of our adored and historic gibelotte and Fest stands for Sorel-Tracy summer festival!

The beauty of the French language lies in its complexity! The gib is big is a palindrome, our favorite figure of speech!

Want a good one? Yesterday, Sunday July 23, it was the Dol-Boat River Fest in Dolbeau.

I imagine that we must count ourselves lucky that the FÉQ is not called the “QuebSummerFest”.
