The Con Media Circus and the Fake India Story
As you know, I have been portraying some of our shabby Con media in traditional garb, to mock the way they covered Justin Trudeau's visit to India.
On location, from Ottawa and Toronto.
But actually I probably should have portrayed them as the latest addition to the Con clown circus.
For thanks to their orgy of bias, and their latest desperate attempt to destroy Trudeau, they managed to miss the real story.
But they did so stir up the Cons, that their creepy leader is starting to sound almost dangerous.
This raving Con dotard sounds like he has finally lost the last of his marbles.
And of course this is the absolute limit.
The hideous Con clown Candice Bergen going after Trudeau, Again. As only she can.
And also missing the story.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau skipped Question Period on Monday as the opposition demanded proof that India was behind the presence of a convicted would-be assassin during his trip to the country last week.
"This is a very serious allegation," Tory House Leader Candice Bergen said. "What proof does the Prime Minister have that the government of India did this?"
By going to bat for India not Canada, and blowing it up into the Con version of Benghazi.
Even if all that huffing and puffing threatens to damage our budding relationship with India.
Just as Andrew Scheer was prepared to damage our relationship with the United States, at the start of the NAFTA negotiations...
For the same crass political purposes.
Because none of the elements of this Con conspiracy story make any sense, and when spun together into a giant woolly turban of a tale....
The result resembles nothing less than something Trump might obsess about, when all the paranoid voices in his head are screaming in unison.
For the following reasons, in no particular order:
(1) Jaspal Atwal is not the bugaboo terrorist the Cons are trying to make him out to be.
He was a would be terrorist thirty four years ago, when he tried to shoot an Indian diplomat visiting Canada, missed, and spent five years in jail.
But he is no longer a terrorist, even the Indian government agrees he's reformed.
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.
Or why else would it have allowed him into that country?
Why would the former Con MP Gurmant Grewal have vouched for him?
Why is Atwal being called a "terrorist" when all he seems to be is a political groupie, whose only annoying habit seems to be his desire to get his picture taken with politicians.
Or famous people like Wayne Gretzky....
And is there a double standard in this country in the way we treat rehabilitated prisoners, with brown faces, like Atwal and Omar Khadr?
(2) You can't understand what motivated Atwal back then, or understand what's happening in India today without knowing what happened in that country in the bloody year of 1984.
When Indira Gandi's government stormed the Golden Temple to dislodge some militants occupying it, and killed hundreds and hundreds of Sikhs...
And tens of thousands of others were killed a few months later, when her Sikh bodyguards killed her, and bloody pogroms broke out all over the country.
(3) Only when you understand that, and the Indian government's growing fear of the peaceful efforts of the Sikh diaspora to investigate the government's role in those massacres, can you understand what happened to Justin Trudeau in India.
And why some elements in India wanted to send a message to him and Canada.
The problem is this: Indian elite sees any demand by Sikhs for justice over the anti-Sikh pogroms in 1984 as a sign of separatism. Last year Ontario’s state parliament passed a motion describing the events of 1984 as a “genocide” against Sikhs.
The Indian media, which largely prefers the term “riots” (as a way to continue the pretence that both Sikhs and Hindus were to blame), cited the motion as proof that Sikh separatism was growing in Canada.
They don't like the sight of so many Sikh MP's in Trudeau's government. Or for that matter the sight of this new leader...
Who at this time is banned from even visiting India.
So it's entirely plausible that some elements in India did conspire to embarrass Canada by making an issue out of Atwal's invitation to a dinner at the Canadian mission.
And by trying to amplify this shame over NOTHING, the Cons and their stooge media have only played into their hands.
And they are the ones who should be ashamed of THEMSELVES.
But of course they're not.
For while neither Andrew Coyne nor Paul Wells tweeted a word about this far more important foreign policy story.
Which truly does threaten our values, and our image in the world. And tells you all you need to know about the creepy religious fanatic Andrew Scheer.
instead, they're both still beating their hollow drums over the nothingburger India story.
And to make matters even more alarming, Wells now seems to be looking for conspiracy theories in the vicinity of the Planet Uranus.
As only a Con stooge could...
When will they ever learn?
And how soon can we get rid of them?
End this epidemic of fake news.
And make Canada truly great again...
