Justin Trudeau Tries To Lecture Europe On Democracy, Gets Destroyed By Response
In what can only be described as blindness towards reality, entitled Canadian PM tried to lecture European leaders on Democracy; saying this was not well-received would be an understatement. Our northern Tyrant was in for a rude awakening.
Remember, this is the same person lecturing us on Democracy, who had his henchmen crackdown on protestors in his own country, seized bank accounts, froze assets, all for daring to question this Tyrant’s heavy-handedness in his own country.
Instead, Trudeau did what many tyrants worldwide have done for generations; he stood up and tried to set another country up as a boogeyman to take eyes off the dictatorial power grabs we have seen over the last few months.
But I think it was the unmitigated gall of him standing up in the EU and lecturing them on Democracy when he has done nothing but squash democracy in his own country. He tried to tell the people assembled that the greatest threat to Democracy was Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; I beg to differ. The greatest threat to Democracy comes from within, people in our nation that hate our country, politicians stripping away civil rights in the name of safety while the scared masses give into the loss of their freedoms,
And Canada is not the only place suffering this; we see the same thing in the US. Our capital and politicians are increasingly isolating themselves, putting walls around the halls of power to keep the commoner out, the very people they are supposed to answer to.
But back to Trudeau:
From the National Post:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making a plea to European leaders to come together as democracies in the face of Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and tackle rising uncertainties citizens have about the future.
Trudeau said economic frustrations are threatening the world’s stability and driving a deep uncertainty about the future and distrust of government.
He also said democracies face a new threat from Russian President Vladimir Putin and his attack on Ukraine. Trudeau called a violation of international law with the targeting and killing of civilians in hospitals and residential buildings.
Trudeau said the war in Ukraine poses a security threat not only to Europe but to western democracies and the world.
“Putin’s attack on Ukraine is an attack on the values that form the pillars of all democracies. We have a responsibility to make the case to people about why these values matter so much — not just to Ukrainians but to us all,” Trudeau said in his remarks.
When he was done, the room was quiet for a moment, then Mislav Kolakusic, a Croatian member of the European Parliament (MEP), had enough and tore into Trudeau and his hypocrisy:
“Freedom, the right to choose, the right to life, the right to health, the right to work for many of us are fundamental human rights for which millions of citizens of Europe and the world have laid down their lives to defend our rights and the rights of our children which we have acquired over the centuries.”
Many of us, including myself, are willing to risk our own freedom and our own lives. Unfortunately, today, there are those among us who trample on these fundamental values.”
Taking a moment to pause, he then turned to Trudeau and continued:
“Canada, once a symbol of the modern world, has become a symbol of civil rights violations under your quasi-liberal boot in recent months. We watched how you trample women with horses, how you block the bank accounts of single parents so that they can’t even pay their children’s education and medicine, that they can’t pay utilities, mortgages for their homes.”
Romanian MEP Crist
Romanian MEP Cristian Terhes issued a statement announcing his decision not to attend Trudeau’s speech. It was just as brutal as Kolakusic’s comments: “You can’t come and teach democracy lessons to Putin from the European Parliament when you trample with horse hooves your citizens who demand respect their fundamental rights.“
In another paragraph, he asserted that Trudeau is no better than Putin. “When you, a politician from the ‘west,’ implement in your home methods of repression and the trampling of the rights of your citizens, who demand their rights be respected, as Putin does at home, you are no better than him.”
This went on to criticize Western leaders more generally. “These imposter leaders of today’s west have brought the world into the chaos we find ourselves in today, precisely because they have strayed from the values that made the ‘west’ a free and prosperous world.” He added, “The departure of western leaders from these values (individual liberty, respect for rights and freedoms, etc.) made them lose their moral ascendancy and allowed the rise of tyrants like Putin.“
Then Terhes articulated something Americans are noticing about the current global skirmish: “Between the Russian imperialist tyranny, promoted by Putin, and the neo-Marxist tyranny pretending to be progressivism promoted by the likes of Trudeau, in which people are deprived of their rights and freedoms, becoming objects of the state, I do not choose any.”
it was good to see someone, even if they aren’t from the US or the Western Powers in Europe, it took someone that used to be under the heel of communism to call out the lies and hypocrisy of the Left. To bad people can’t do the same here.
