The Dangerous Demonization of Justin Trudeau
It's a strange thing about Justin Trudeau. He may be the most popular Prime Minister in recent Canadian history, and a nice guy.
But nobody is hated and demonized by some Canadians as much as he is, and now that hatred is out of control.
For what else can explain that some crazy from the Green Party should throw pumpkin seeds at Trudeau.
For allegedly not keeping his promises.
Cries of "Don't hurt me!" rang out outside Hamilton City Hall on Friday as a protester who tried to ambush Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by throwing pumpkin seeds was taken down by security.
Schmid-Jones shoved past reporters screaming, "Keep your promises," and throwing pumpkin seeds with hearts drawn on them as Trudeau was leaving city hall.
When in fact for a leader and a government who have been in power for less than a year, their record in that regard isn't too shabby.
It's actually pretty damn good.
So where did Schmid-Jones get the idea that you can throw ANYTHING at a Canadian prime minister and hope to get away with it?
Don't hurt me, don't hurt me WAAAAAH!!!!!
And where does this guy think he can confront the prime minister in this manner?
Why did he look like he was about to attack him?
Why was he allowed to get so close to Trudeau? And why was this British tabloid the only paper that reported the story?
A man accosting Justin Trudeau was immediately shut down by the prime minister himself on Friday in Ontario. Trudeau had just left from visiting Picone's Fine Food in Dundas, when the unidentified man tried to get in his face. A series of photos show the 44-year-old Leader of the Liberal Party with his hands placed on the man as the two appear to exchange words.
Did the Con media not think the story was worth a mention? Do we really take that behaviour for granted in this country?
And why do I seem to be the only one in the progressive blogosphere who thinks that the volume of death threats aimed at Trudeau has gone from disgusting to dangerous?
Like these that greeted Justin during his recent visit to Medicine Hat...
Am I the only one who finds those threats deranged and totally un-Canadian?
Don't those inflamed Trudeau haters, on the right and the left, see where they are taking this country?
Do we really want to become another crazy and violent Amerika?
You know, there's cancer growing in this country, a disease leaking over the border.
And it has the potential to destroy us all.
The violent Cons should restrain themselves, or be charged and jailed.
And the other Trudeau haters should cool their jets.
Before somebody gets killed, and they all have blood on their hands....
