GORDON: If white nationalism becomes a real threat, the Liberals will only have themselves to blame

The Trudeau government is pushing the narrative that white nationalism is a dire threat to Canada and the world. According to Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, “Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, ‘incels,’ nativists and radical anti-globalists who resort to violent acts are a threat to the stability of my country and countries around the world.” The prime minister and other cabinet ministers have echoed similar messages over the past month.

It’s a dangerous pattern this government has displayed in playing identity politics. The Liberals are singling out and magnifying the infinitesimal minority of “white” Canadians who are extremists, all while ignoring or even covering up the extremism coming from minority groups, such as removing “Sikh extremism” from a government report on terrorism.
