Trudeau's Fascistic Thoughts
Does He Ever Actually Listen To Himself?
Justin Trudeau is good at one thing: fascistic rhetoric.
Case in point, his latest “warning” to the Freedom Convoy:
Protest is breaking the law in Trudeau's Canada. Seriously.
Perhaps he needs a refresher course on the Canadian Charter of Rights And Freedoms, which guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of association, and freedom of peaceable assembly.
Fundamental Freedoms Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: freedom of conscience and religion; freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; freedom of peaceful assembly; and freedom of association.
From the beginning, the Freedom Convoy has been a peaceful demonstration, and social media is replete with video footage establishing the peaceful nature of the protest.
But they oppose Trudeau, which means they must be breaking the law.
This makes sense to Trudeau, since anyone in the Freedom Convoy is not even “Canadian” in his eyes:
“Canadians got vaccinated. I can understand frustrations with mandates but mandates are the way to avoid further restrictions,” said Trudeau.
This Orwellian doublespeak is of a part with his “fringe minority” comments in the initial days of the protest:
“The small fringe minority of people who are on their way to Ottawa who are holding unacceptable views that they are expressing do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other, who know that following the science and stepping up to protect each other is the best way to continue to ensure our freedoms, our rights, our values, as a country,” said Mr Trudeau.
“Unacceptable views”--i.e., disagreeing with Justin Trudeau--means one is not even Canadian.
This has been Trudeau's pattern throughout the pandemic era: using othering rhetoric to disparage, demonize, and dismiss the political opposition.
However, the Canadian Charter of Rights And Freedoms trumps Trudeau--or at least it should. Citizens in a representative democracy get to disagree with the government. They get to petition for redress of grievances. They get to make themselves heard, no matter who they are or what they believe.
In Trudeau's Canada, those who stand up for the rule of law are non-citizens. Those who choose to exercise their fundamental rights as Canadians are an unacceptable fringe minority. Only those who bend the knee to his will shall enjoy the pleasure of being Canadian.
Is this the future Canadians want? To have no freedom of thought, nor of assembly, and thus no freedom at all? To bend the knee to tyrannical, authoritarian rule that thumbs its nose at the Charter? To have one's status as a Canadian citizen contingent on supine compliance with official government diktats?
I am not Canadian. I am an American. Yet I love liberty and desire for everyone to enjoy its many blessings--which means I hope for more for Canada than the fascistic Justin Trudeau.
