Amnesty International blasts Trudeau for remarks about jailed Saudi blogger

MONTREAL — Amnesty International is blasting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s most recent comments on jailed Saudi blogger Raif Badawi.

Trudeau told Montreal radio station 98.5 FM today his government wants to help free Badawi but must tread warily.

He said pushing too hard and too fast can sometimes have harmful consequences.

That prompted Amnesty spokeswoman Anne Sainte-Marie to say the remarks were somewhat indecent on Trudeau’s part.

    Glad to see Amnesty on this. They criticized the Conservatives enough, even though it was not evident that the Conservatives were not trying their best for various Canadians and others abroad. NDP and Liberals also piled on. Reality is, there is a limited amount our government can do in most of these situations.

    Back in the day, when various family members were heading overseas, my mother would remind them “the most valuable thing about you is your passport”. Our own warning as offsprings went abroad was the “you are guests in their country and subject to their laws, govern yourselves accordingly”. When there was instability in a country near where one offspring was studying, I checked to make sure said offspring was aware of the instability and had plans to get out. Didn’t come to that, but was relieved when reply was that monitoring the situation, and that offspring and classmate were prepared to – at very short notice – toss computers and a few other essentials into classmate’s car and head west.

    • Sorry, but I would not flatter ourselves at the expense of A I. They will continue to sling mud conservatives for support which is afforded by conservatives to Israel when Israel defends itself against terrorists. And Trudeau will be forgiven despite his obvious stupidity

    • any Trudeau can bleat any nonsense(if I may say so). He will be slightly pinched by the members of AI

        • Justin Trudeau is a typical leftist with a moldy stuff instead of brains.He is so a typical leftist that his own name might be used as a household name, or as a nickname. And yet, according to the definition of the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon,Justin Trudeau can be considered a typical politician of the twenty-first century. Virtually all modern leading politicians adhere to leftist ideas… I trust you do not think that Justin Trudeau is an exceptional idiot. In general, there are a lot people like him in our world. . And so I had two reasons to use the proper name of the Canadian Prime Minister, as a household name . I desired to get a joke of this. Of course I knew it would be really risky to joke an unfamiliar company where my temper could not be seen. I merely took a chance. I’m sorry for what I do not use one of the official nickname of the Canadian Prime Minister, for example such as Shiny Pony …
          ====================================
          And like all leftists with mild stuff instead of the brain and all the modern leading politicians, Justin Trudeau favors any scum who shouts Allahu Akbar. Today’s leading politicians and all leftists prefer to cower before the representatives of nations Sharia . And as for the organization of Amnesty International, this “Honest” organization is notable for the fact that most often it protects terrorists. Those. The fact that the Prime Minister of Canada turned to the left of a member of A I could be easily perceived as a minor incident. Because, it is known also that people who partake in common interests act together . Or in other words, a crow never picks out the eye of another crow.

    Somewhat indecent? Looks like someone treads wearily with criticism.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Wearily? It’s not like AI has Shiny Pony in a 24/7 surveillance. Nobody at AI is “burning the midnight oil” to get at Trudeau. Get a grip.

  • ntt1

    She is a progressive, he is a progressive,they differ on;y on the degree of damage they inflict, they both seek to destroy western culture and civilization and replace it with a marxist utopia, justin doesn’t of course, its just the prevailing ideology of his handlers,.

  • Haha ,Trudeau found himself to the left of the members of AI .Well, all I can say is wow! That’s what this shit goes down in history. He will go down in history as the most left Prime Minister, not only as one of the worst
    Even such an odious organization as AI, which often chooses the position of the terrorists is dissatisfied with the actions of Trudeau junior.

  • canminuteman

    I am sure that if Amnesty International was in charge they would be jailing bloggers too. Like this one, and the other ones I read.

    • Justin St.Denis

      There ain’t no doubt about it. Fascists are fascists are fascists are fascists….

  • And in general, actually, Trudeau is glorified of indecent or even stupid statements, which is corrected by his yes-men in the media and / or which he has taken back with excuses, so vain Amnesty spokeswoman Anne-Sainte – Marie is surprised about it … Anyway, during his opposition activities, he apologized for saying but today he has given up to apologize , well, perhaps, it would be worth to be surprised, but this change was not difficult to understand.

    Just a reminder that Canadian businessman William Sampson was held in a Saudi prison for three years, during which he was beaten and tortured until he confessed to plotting to overthrow the Saudi government. The Chrétien government’s ‘attempts’ to free him can at best be described as desultory. In fact liberal MP Mac Harb (of Lebanese descent) sided with the Saudis, an act which probably served to prolong Sampson’s ordeal. Harb went on to serve as MP for 15 years after which he was appointed to the Senate. Sampson died in 2012, he was 52.

    Sampson’s treatment by the government turned me against the liberal brand forever.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I had already been in the ConCamp for several years at that point. I watched HORRIFIED as Canadian Liberals did what Canadian Liberals always do – betray Canadians and the country itself.

      Betrayal is a Canadian Liberal tradition.

      • Betrayal is a Canadian Liberal tradition.

        And in my view, it is a custom of the liberals of all our world , not only Canadian. Do you think that Obama is better than the Canadian leftists?

    • Yes,using meat of compatriots our liberals do not disdain to feed the savages
      For example, the American ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans had been slaughtered by Islamists. This murder on the 11th anniversary of 9/11 led the White House to conceal the facts, rather than to carry out an investigation. Moreover, the Americans could have been saved !!! The whole chronology would have revealed the president’s shocking behavior during one of the terrible attack against Americans by representatives of sharia nations since 9/11 … In truth, now it is known enough to understand the meaning. Obama’s detachment during a terrorist attack was a shameful dereliction of duty.There has the answer, thanks to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. In his reluctant Senate testimony, he provided the missing piece of the puzzle: The commander in chief was MIA. The coverup was created to protect his absence.According to Panetta, President Obama checked in with his military team early on during the attack, then checked out for the rest of the night. The next day, we already knew, he blamed the video maker and flew to Las Vegas for a campaign event.

    • Just a reminder that Canadian businessman William Sampson was held in a Saudi prison for three years,

      I read about this case and I agree with you It was abominable

      Of course , all leftists are loathsome. Using meat of compatriots all our liberals do not disdain to feed those savages who hunger for human flesh .At the same time, the Liberals remain unpunished. Hence, the biggest scoundrel must be sought not in Canada. But today the biggest bitch lives in America. For example, the American ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans had been slaughtered by Islamists.

And the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received emails from her top aides warning about dangerous security conditions in Benghazi, Libya, in the run-up to the terrorist attack .For two whole days before the terrorist approach, the Militia leaders have warned US officials about the impending attack, and that they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi.During these two days, the US diplomatic mission could be evacuated, it was the last chance to save the diplomats, however, the Obama administration has not even attempted to take vantage of this last opportunity ….In short, Barack Obama has already gone down in history as a president who went missing during a terrorist attack against America

In short, Barack Obama has already gone down in history as a president who went missing during a terrorist attack against America .
      And Obama did not even bother to look for any explanations his negligence. Shortly after this terrorist attack, he blamed the video maker. Trampling the freedom of speech and common sense, the president of Superpower took the blame from terrorists and put it on innocent people. But he was forgiven despite his negligence and lies ;-(.If Bush Jr would be a presidet instead of Obama he would face ridicule and condemnation, at the least… .But Obama escapes without a scratch from any suspicious situation, for which everyone president can get the impeachment…

        I agree. Benghazi was a travesty. I have no idea why Americans elected him the second time. Serious blunder in my opinion.
