The CBC Does the Best Air-Brushing It Can for Trudeau

The CBC earns its taxpayer money with a fluff piece on the Yazidis, a token article that ignores Trudeau’s deliberate unwillingness to help them.


Remember this?


And this:

Michelle Rempel needs to get angry more often.

The 36-year-old former Conservative cabinet minister, now the Official Opposition critic for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, was the driving force behind Tuesday’s 313-0 House of Commons vote requiring Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government to get its act together and open Canada’s doors to the persecuted Yazidi minority of Iraqi Kurdistan.

From her patient negotiations to build a consensus across party lines, and from her eloquence in the House debates leading up to Tuesday’s vote, you’d never know how angry Rempel has been. For two long years, pathetic excuses and institutional incompetence have prevented Canadians from making any use of themselves at all in coming to terms with the Yazidi genocide.


And this:

But unlike the thousands of refugees fleeing violence in Syria who were greeted by flashing cameras and intense public exposure, the Yazidis have been entering the country with no fanfare. That won’t change, say government officials who are protecting the identity of the asylum seekers because of just how vulnerable they are.

“Some of these women haven’t even told their own families about what they experienced” at the hands of their persecutors, associate deputy immigration minister Dawn Edlund told a news conference alongside Hussen.

      The punchline says it all, but in the Alice Cooper album isn’t this the Devil singing it?

    I think the answer lies in the political considerations arising from the following facts:
    Yazidis in Canada: estimated 5000
    Muslims in Canada: estimated 1,100,000 (roughly 220 times as many)

    Do you expect a politician to act in support of the Yazidis or the muslims and possibly get a bloc vote through gratitude?

    • Trudeau packed in more Muslims. He stacked the deck, as it were.

        The politicians know that some cultures bloc vote, and take advantage of this propensity. White European migrants are much less likely to vote according to family, cultural or religious conformity. They are also less likely to rely on government welfare and thus are not so susceptible to promises of taxpayer funded largess courtesy of politicians making those promises to get elected.

    Watching that video of Trudeau made my skin crawl. It was d-i-s-g-u-s-t-i-n-g.

      There is something about that man-child that is ultra creepy and I can’t put my finger on it. I still want to break his nose.
