Tongue-tied “liberal hero”


a reporter reminds Trudeau of his reluctance to criticize Trump‘s actions

(the US witnessed people’s rebellion in the wake of George Floyd‘s murder

there was some violence, burning, and looting through out the US

compared to the US wars/violence/looting/crimes within and without the US

it was like a dot, our earth, among 100 billion stars in 100 billion galaxies)

he then asks his views on Trump‘s decision to introduce military in the US

there was a very long 21 second silence before Trudeau opened his mouth

Greek philosopher Socrates once remarked:

the unexamined life is not worth living

Trudeau devoted those 21 seconds to come up with his own dictum:

“the unexamined question is not safe answering”

Trudeau must have grilled himself thoroughly before responding

“if I criticize the Globocop next door, Canada and/or I will pay the price”

“if I remain silent, the critics will tear me apart for staying quiet”

“I’ll say a couple of things in general, and then shift to domestic issues”

We all watch in horror and consternation what’s going on in the United States. It is a time to pull people together, but it is a time to listen. It is a time to learn when injustices continue despite progress over years and decades.”

then he opt out in a diplomatic way

he started talking about discrimination against blacks in Canada

nothing wrong – on the contrary, it was nice of him to look inside Canada

without cutting time on Canada, he could have devoted more time to the US

but when it come to United States, Trudeau becomes tongue tied

but when it comes to Venezuela, this US puppet turns into a gangster

in January 2019, Justin Trudeau had a town hall meeting with students

the venue was Brock University, located in St. Catharines, Ontario

one of the questions was about Nicolas Maduro and Jair Bolsonaro

why Canada recognizes Bolsonaro government but not Maduro’s

His Phoneyllency Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied thus:

“I would propose to you, sir, that anyone who contends to be a friend of Venezuela… who contends that they are a friend to the Venezuelan people would be very clear in standing up and condemning the Maduro government that has been responsible for terrible oppression, for terrible marginalization, for a humanitarian crisis the likes of which South America has not seen in a long time, leading to mass exodus, an extreme number of refugees fleeing all across South America all because of an illegitimate dictator named Maduro who is continuing to not respect their constitution, the rule of law and the principles of what is true and fair for the future.”

to a questioner’s inaudible response, Trudeau had this to say

“Sorry sir, I disagree and the Venezuelan people will probably significantly disagree with you as well because they’re suffering and they need true democracy.”

Trudeau didn’t utter a single word on that rogue/corrupt Jair Bolsonaro

this is typical of all so called liberal phonies, including Barack Obama

(ditto with Canada’s most read newspaper, The Globe and Mail

but the Glib and Male a “newspaper of record,” did report on Venzuela)

Trudeau wouldn’t mind carrying out illegal acts on behalf of Trump regime

Trudeau government kidnapped Meng Wanzhou on US insistence

Wanzhou is chief financial officer (CFO) at Huawei, a Chinese telecom giant

(US wants to halt China’s economic/technological progress out of jealousy

although no one is stopping the US from enhancing its economy/technology)

in the Brock University town hall meeting Trudeau was asked about BDS

his reply on Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement was

“We have to be very careful as a society and as a government and as a country not to sanction this new frame around anti-Semitism and undue criticism of Israel.”

like other hypocrites, Trudeau is using “anti-Semitism” as a weapon

boycotting Israel for oppressing Palestinians can’t be called “anti-Semitism”

back to 21 seconds – Trudeau wasted them on short term gains

that is, not to become a target of the vicious US President Donald Trump

for Canada’s sake, the answer about Trump should have been different

Trudeau should have said the following:

“What is happening in the United States is horrific and is against the ‘democratic values’ the US asks other countries to adopt. The appropriate thing for President Trump should have been to come out on May 26, right after the video of the cruel murder of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer went viral. The next task of his should have been to take into confidence the black people by assuring them that justice will be served. To that end, President Trump should have asked the police chief of Minneapolis to arrest all four officers. He should have then invited the community leaders of all races belonging to different fields to solve the problem of police brutality. The goal should have been to create confidence, calm, and trust among the people of the US.”

this would have been the appropriate response to the crisis in the US

Trudeau should remember one thing

if Trump loses the election in November, he won’t accept his defeat

he will either go to war against Venezuela, Iran, China, …

or he’ll declare the election as rigged because of the “fake media”

prompting his supporters to come out which can result in a civil war

in that case, Canada’s southern border could see droves of US refugees
