GUNTER: Trudeau’s cries of neo-Nazi are just modern day McCarthyism

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems to be testing out a 21st-Century version of McCarthyism to see whether that can get him out of the SNC-Lavalin bog.

Trudeau has tried a dozen legal and political maneuvers to get himself and his party unstuck, none of them successful. He and his government even tried ramping up federal spending and running still-larger deficits just so they would present a goodies-giveaway budget that lowered interest on student loans, helped pay part of first-time homebuyers’ mortgages, subsidized dairy and other farmers, offered rebates on electric cars and pumped billions into municipal and First Nations’ infrastructure.
