How The Con Media Made Themselves Look Like Idiots. Again.
As we all know, the good old boys from the parliamentary press gang have been in a frigging frenzy recently.
Covering Justin Trudeau's visit to India, from Ottawa and/or somewhere in Toronto.
Mocking Trudeau and his young family for dressing up in Indian garb...
Accusing him of having invited a former terrorist to dinner. Only thirty-four years after he tried and failed to kill an Indian diplomat in Canada!!
Claiming that the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi was so displeased he was shunning Justin!!!
Screeching like banshees, or Cons, that the visit was the worst diplomatic disaster EVER!!!
Or as Stephen Maher was seen to be screaming hysterically, bad for CANADA!!!!
To which I was forced to reply like this:
But by then the Con media's "sensational" story had begun to unravel.
When the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner "dangerous terrorist" was revealed to be less of a threat than they would have us believe.
Jaspat Atwal, who was at the centre of a controversy following his presence at events hosted for visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is one of the “reformed” elements in the pro-Khalistan sections of the Sikh diaspora, top government sources told The Indian Express. He was in India as part of the government’s new approach to engage with such elements, who have not indulged in any separatist and extremist activities in recent years, sources said.
He's actually working with the Indian government, to help neutralize those who might threaten that country.
“Atwal is one of about 200 such individuals with whom the government has been engaging in the last three years. He got a visa to visit India, as part of the process, like many others. He was given a visa since he was found to have been reformed, and therefore has been taken off the blacklist last year,” a source said.
A hero on the front line of The Great War of Terrorism, who the Con media would treat as a TRAITOR !!!!
Can you believe that?
And if that wasn't bad enough, then there was this from the man who was supposedly shunning Trudeau.
Can you believe THAT? A signed bib from Mark McMorris.
Which just about finished off the Con media's "sensational" story, but not before Andrew Scheer was made to look ridiculous.
The suggestion by a senior government official that rogue political elements in India were behind the invitation of a Sikh extremist to an event with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is “dangerously irresponsible” and risks eroding diplomatic ties, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says.
And Maxime Bernier also made an absolute idiot out of himself. Again...
And all I can say is, thank goodness the Cons aren't running this country, because they don't know what they're saying or doing.
Thank goodness the CBC has at least one decent journalist left to put that fake scandal into perspective.
Rarely has the journalistic echo chamber rung more hollow than on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's trip to India. It's an interesting exercise to see how many of the analyses were written by people thousands of kilometres from India, and how many quote the same Carleton University academic, Vivek Dehejia.
The reality is this trip drifted somewhat from Day 1, featured a few successes and one major self-inflicted wound with the presence of Jaspal Atwal, and ended in a surprisingly warm glow when the Trudeau government finally gave the Indians what they'd been waiting for all along.
And this is the bottom line:
The Con media tried and failed to hurt Justin Trudeau, just to pleasure i.e. blow their big bosses.
They need to apologize to Justin AND the Canadian people, or better still resign and let a new generation take over.
And our exciting prime minister should return to Ottawa, and try to make it less boring...
If that's possible, which I doubt.
And of course after this, if the Cons and their stooge media don't get out of the way.
Trudeau shouldn't hesitate to stomp all over them...
