‘Privileged’ Justin Trudeau accused of colonialist attitude over boxing match

Account of how 2012 match against fellow politician Patrick Brazeau came about doesn’t square with vows to repair Canada’s relationship with indigenous people

“It wasn’t random,” Trudeau told Rolling Stone magazine in an interview published this week. “I wanted someone who would be a good foil, and we stumbled upon the scrappy tough-guy senator from an indigenous community. He fit the bill, and it was a very nice counterpoint. I saw it as the right kind of narrative, the right story to tell.”

The comments – part of a 6,800-word August cover story on the prime minister – sparked immediate reaction. “So ‘privileged white guy beats up Indian’ was the ‘right kind of narrative?’ Seriously?” wrote one person on Twitter, while another noted: “White guy in power & entitlement looks 4 an #Indigenous human to beat up so he looks like a strong white dude. How precious & colonial supreme.”

He beat up a drug addled drunk.

Conservative MP Embarrasses Trudeau Government Over Khadr Deal

Oh, dear:

The federal payout to Omar Khadr was a big story in some conservative U.S. media outlets Monday, after nearly two weeks in which it had garnered barely a whisper south of the border.

It was the subject of a condemnatory national newspaper column, the top story on the Fox News website, fodder for cable-news chatter on Fox and a huge surge in interest by Americans online.

“This story is repulsive,” said a Fox News host. To which former pizza entrepreneur and presidential candidate Herman Cain replied: “It is a pathetic interpretation of the law. Canada basically rewarded a murderer.”

The burst of attention started with a Wall Street Journal piece by a Canadian opposition MP.

Conservative Peter Kent published a scorching op-ed titled, “A Terrorist’s Big Payday, Courtesy of Trudeau,” that helped the story gain traction elsewhere.

The item began with a description of Khadr killing an American army medic, Christopher Speer, when he was 15 years old and fighting alongside al-Qaida in Afghanistan. It explained how Khadr won a court fight in Canada over how he was treated by Canadian intelligence officials while detained at Guantanamo Bay, was repatriated to Canada, released on bail and sued the Canadian government for $20 million for violating his rights.

The Ontario MP criticized the Trudeau government for settling with Khadr, while the victim’s family got nothing.

By Monday afternoon, the issue was the No. 1 story on the Fox News website.

 

Also:

The political fallout from the Omar Khadr payout has largely been portrayed as a Liberal government vs. Conservative opposition issue – with Conservative leader Andrew Scheer taking a stand against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The NDP has managed to stay largely off the radar, despite being in the midst of a leadership race. Lucky for them.

Lucky because this has become a wedge issue that isn’t as easy for them as you might at first suspect.

It perfectly exemplifies the big split that exists among the rank-and-file of Canada’s left-wing party: the champagne socialists vs. the blue collar types.

The Angus Reid Institute poll on the matter showed 71% of Canadians opposed the government’s settlement deal with Khadr and would have preferred they tough it out and fight it in court.

When broken down by voter intention, the Conservative opposition was highest at 91%.

However 64% of NDP voters also rejected the deal, several points higher than the Liberal opposition, at 61%.

That’s a red flag to the NDP caucus and party grandees that this is one of those common sense issues where they risk upsetting a huge swath of their support if they play it wrong.

But it looks like they already know this.

Justin Trudeau Isn’t the Anti-Trump. He’s Bargain-Bin Obama.

Poor Justin! First the Guardian turned on him, now a Canuck writer exposes him in Slate!

Justin Trudeau Is Not the Leader of the Free World

The truth is that Trudeau isn’t Canada’s answer to Trump. He’s Canada’s answer to Barack Obama. Our habit isn’t to reject America. It’s to imitate you, a few years later and a few degrees milder.

The world is waking…

When you’ve lost the Guardian… “Stop swooning over Justin Trudeau. The man is a disaster for the planet!”

Sing a song Sophie, Justin is sad!

“Donald Trump is a creep and unpleasant to look at, but at least he’s not a stunning hypocrite when it comes to climate change”

Little by little the world is “Woke” to what we already knew, Justin is an airhead, a liar and a creep.

Trudeau tries to calm Trump fears in Europe, which sees Canada as bridge to U.S.

“The European Union is a truly remarkable achievement, and an unprecedented model for peaceful co-operation. Canada knows that an effective European voice on the global stage isn’t just preferable — it’s essential,” Trudeau said in the first address by a Canadian prime minister to the European Parliament.

The Brief: Fifty shades of Justin Trudeau

Did you smell that sickly sweet aroma in the air in Brussels today? It was the waves of smug rolling in all the way from the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

MEPs were getting their reward for the nodding through of the EU-Canada trade CETA – five minutes of one on 751 face time with Justin Trudeau.

What a gushing lovefest it was. So cloying and sweet I got diabetes watching it. Five minutes of saccharine wooing from the floppy-haired studmuffin, standing there like a Canadian Christian Grey.

PM Useful Idiot Sends Cabinet Officials to ‘Make Friends’ in DC Ahead of Trump Meeting Monday

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tasked a number of his cabinet officials with traveling to Washington to meet their counterparts in the Trump administration in anticipation of a one-on-one meeting between the two leaders.

Trudeau’s overtures to the White House follow a month in which his personal approval ratings have plummeted following a series of ethics scandals and embarrassing public appearances before hostile audiences during a nationwide town hall tour.


From earlier today – Liberals and Conservatives tied in nationwide poll, Grits still strong in Central Canada, but losing younger voters

I hope Trump pisses all over him from the White House balcony.
