By Justin Trudeau’s own standards, he’s racist and anti-immigrant

April 2019

How’s that for a headline?

Do I actually think Trudeau is a racist and anti-immigrant?  No; but he is a stunning hypocrite!

Trudeau and company have spent the last 2 years denying there was a problem with “irregular” (translation:  illegal) immigration and screaming “racist” and “anti-immigrant” at anyone on the political right who stated we need to beef up border security and amend the Safe Third County Agreement to close the loophole currently being used by those crossing at unofficial border points like Roxham Road.

Now in a stunning admission that we do actually have a problem, Trudeau has hidden in the recent omnibus budget bill (I know, I too kinda forgot there was a budget presented recently, what with all the coverage of the SNC Lavalin scandal) an $1.8 billion plan over 5 years to beef up border security and speed up the processing of asylum claims.

Also included in the 392 page budget bill is a provision that would close that loophole that is allowing refugee claimants to get around the Safe Third Country Agreement.  It looks like Trudeau has finally decided to enforce the law, the one that is clearly spelled out on the sign at the Roxham Road crossing (and other illegal crossing points), instead of insisting that the RCMP officers permanently posted to this and other illegal crossing points only act as bellhops for the migrants and their shiny, new luggage.

By the way, that is not meant as a slag against the officers, whom I can only guess must cringe at what their political masters have been ordering them to do thus far.

This isn’t the only example that proves what an unbelievable hypocrite Trudeau is and how he obviously believes the rules and standards that us lowly peasants have to follow simply don’t apply to him.

In 2014, Trudeau expelled two MPs from the Liberal caucus (Scott Andrews and Massimo Pacetti) and demoted a minister (Kent Hehr) for sexually inappropriate behaviour.  Yet when confronted about reports that he groped a female reporter in Crestin, BC, in 2000, not only did he not hold himself to the same standard, he first denied the accusation, then admitted something happened but he didn’t believe it was a negative interaction, then claimed that …people can experience interactions differently…,” a statement that was particularly galling given his half-assed “apology” to the reporter the day after this “non-negative interaction” that included the claim that if he’d known that she worked for a national newspaper that he wouldn’t have been so forward.  So if she had been working for a small, community newspaper, she would have been fair game? 

This on top of the fact that he has repeatedly said in the past that women who bring forward accusations of sexual misconduct must be believed!  Oy vey!

Do I even need to go into the Trudeau’s stunning chutzpah in questioning the ethics of Jody Wilson-Raybould secretly recording a phone call between her and Michael Wernick?  This coming from the man who has the distinction of being the first and only sitting Prime Minister to be convicted of multiple ethics violations.  Trudeau obviously lives in an irony-free world.

By the way Prime Minister “Fancy Socks,” the “ethics” of secretly recording a phone conversation, a recording that was perfectly legal as Wilson-Raybould was aware the conversation was being recorded, doesn’t change what Wernick said on the tape.

I’m a proud big and small “C” conservative, but I have been very open of my criticisms of Andrew Sheer and my praise of former Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien for balancing the books in the 90s.  Now one could argue he did it on the backs of the provinces, who balanced their books on the backs of the municipalities, but that doesn’t change the fact that Chr├ętien and then-Finance Minister Paul Martin realized something had to be done to reduce the federal debt.

It’s funny how my Liberal friends seem very reluctant to criticize Trudeau.

As much as I would love nothing better than for Trudeau to lead the Liberals into the next election so he can go down in flames, I do wonder why the cacus, and the back-room guys and gals, didn’t vote to expel Trudeau from the party instead of Philpott and Wilson-Raybould.  When you have prominent Liberals like Stephen LeDrew, Warren Kinsella and Dan McTeague saying this isn’t their Liberal Party anymore, you know this has gone beyond a partisan issue.
