Yesterday Justin Trudeau, Leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, jumped the shark.
In a speech at a McGill alumni gathering in Toronto, he attempted to link the rejection of the Jews on the S.S. St. Louis in June of 1939 and the rejection of Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims on the Komagata Maru in 1914, to Prime Minister Harper and his Conservative Government.
Why such a comparison? Believe it or not, because Mr. Harper does not believe a woman should be able to cover her face with a niqab during her oath of Citizenship.
Plus, Trudeau suggested that the Conservatives are waging a culture war against Muslims and used the same words, voiced by Liberal PM William Lyon McKenzie King to reject the Jews: None is too many.
Wow! And, who exactly is trying to wage a cultural war?
To hear Trudeau in his own words, here are two Rebel Media videos, one with Ezra Levant and one with Brian Lilley. Which means, that without Rebel, we wouldn’t know what Trudeau actually said and implied by his innuendo.
Which is why I am writing about it because every conservative voice can make a difference!
None is too many?
Talk about misrepresentation!
Let’s compare just a few of the immigration statistics from predominantly Muslim countries using 2004 numbers when the Liberals were in power to 2013 when the Tories were in power (At the 6:18 mark in Lilley’s video).
- Pakistan – Liberal 13,399 in 2004 – Conservative 12,602 in 2013
- Iran – Liberal 6,348 in 2004 – Conservative 11,291 in 2013
- Nigeria – Liberal 1,518 in 2004 – Conservative 4,173 in 2013
- Egypt – Liberal 2,393 in 2004 – Conservative 4,164 in 2013
- Bangladesh – Liberal 2,660 in 2004 – Conservative 3,789 in 2013
Without a doubt, I believe Justin Trudeau owes the Canadian people an apology. If anyone is being divisive, it is him because the reality is that neither he nor Prime Minister Harper can do anything about the reality that it is Islamic extremists who are causing so much havoc in the world, particularly upon their fellow Muslims.
Ignoring that reality and twisting it is not about leadership. Rather, it’s about misrepresenting what your political opponents are all about through the worst possible type of innuendo.
And, why I say Trudeau has jumped the shark.
