Just when you thought the state of liberalism couldn’t sink further into a pit of despicable depravity, it somehow comes back to shock you.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a communist authoritarian. He has ordered his cronies to freeze bank accounts belonging to his political opposition. His state media is on a campaign to harass anyone and everyone who donated to the ‘Freedom Convoy’. He is systematically using dictatorial powers to limit free speech, free association, and free protest.
He should be locked in jail.
On Wednesday, however, Trudeau seriously crossed the line in an attempt to attack his conservative opponents who demand an end to vaccine mandates.
The Prime Minister attacked a Jewish member of the opposing Conservative Party of standing “with people who wave swastikas” during a session of Parliament.
Trudeau made the comment in response to criticism from Conservative MP Melissa Lantsman over his handling of anti-vaccine mandate protesters that have held a weeks-long demonstration in downtown Ottawa over restrictive COVID-19 mandates and measures.

Lantsman began her remarks quoting several lines from a speech Trudeau gave in 2015 and contrasting them with his words today used to describe Canadians who happen to be against vaccine mandates.
“‘These people – very often misogynistic, racist, women-haters, science deniers, the fringe.’ Same prime minister six years later as he fans the flames of an unjustified national emergency. So Mr. Speaker, when did the prime minister lose his way? When did it happen?” Lantsman asked.
Trudeau responded, immediately using the race card referring to protestors who waved Confederate flags and flags with swastikas on them. Many were doubtful these were actually protestors aligning with the ‘Freedom Convoy’. Those flying swastika flags often covered their entire faces and were rumored to be left-wing plants, giving Trudeau a racial justification to force and end to protests.
A new low, even for Trudeau: he falsely accuses a Jewish MP and descendent of holocaust survivors of standing with people who wave swastikas. She did not.
Enough lying and dividing.

Trudeau’s response sparked a raucous outcry from opposition lawmakers as they shouted at the prime minister for denigrating the protesters and Conservative Party members.
Lantsman called the comments “unbecoming” before launching into her rebuttal and pointing out that Trudeau has yet to justify his use of the Emergencies Act to Parliament. Trudeau accused the Conservative Party of supporting “illegal blockades” against Canadians.
I think the Prime Minister should think long and hard about his own history before singling out a Jewish Member of Parliament and falsely accusing me of standing with a Swastika. What a disgraceful statement unbecoming of anyone in public office – he owes me an apology. #cdnpoli

Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on Monday as a “last resort” to break the weeks-long demonstration that has continued in downtown Ottawa. As the protesters have continued, Trudeau has faced increasing pressure from within his own party and from various heads of Canadian provinces to ease COVID-19 rules.
Do you believe we live in a clown world now?
