Under Justin Trudeau, Canada marches towards totalitarianism

December 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – I’m the same age as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and I have a question: has he forgotten what Soviet totalitarianism was?

I don’t know who turned up in his elementary school, but children who had recently slipped out from behind the Iron Curtain appeared in my elementary school in the 1980s. They were quiet, and a little secretive, as if their parents had pressed upon them their whole lives the importance of not telling anyone their business.

By high school they had relaxed. They opened up more. Yugoslavs (as they still were then) discussed inter-ethnic rivalries. Hungarian girls mentioned a priest-refugee at their church who had been imprisoned by the Communist regime. Come to think of it, there was a Polish priest-refugee in my own parish church. The grown-ups said that “Father Andrew” had been sent to Canada for safety after another priest, Father Jerzy Popiełuszko, was beaten to death by the so-called Security Services.

      Until we have our own Donald Trump we are nothing but eurotrash.

    “has he forgotten what Soviet totalitarianism was?”

    He hasn’t forgotten, he has always favoured it.

      Exactly. Too bad the dipsh.t won’t have the man power to enforce his wonderful utopia. Especially in a big country such as ours.

        A review of Canada’s recent immigration data may disavow you of that thesis.

          They’d be able to control the cities at best – outside of those would be a crap shoot.

      If he even thought of it, he and his father would have assumed they would have powerful positions in the nomenklatura, deriving all the benefits of being in that class. Trudeau Sr really, really didn’t like the peons (except, to a certain extent the Quebecois whom he promoted at every opportunity over les autres), and the scion is no different.

      And he thinks he can be above it. Fool. He will be the first one put up against a wall and shot along with his family.

        One can only hope.

  • Thanks, Andy.

    Trudeau’s admiration for China’s “basic dictatorship” should have been a huge red flag to everyone.

    Did he really? If so I need to compose a letter.
