The Day Justin Trudeau Struck Back At Andrew Scheer

For almost a year Andrew Scheer has gone after Justin Trudeau like a creature out of Hell.

He has attacked him day after day after day, as only a religious fanatic and alt-right sympathizer could.

He has made frothy Trudeau hate normal, he has corrupted the very soul of this country, and made us look and smell more like ugly America.

But through it all, through this storm of abuse, Trudeau has managed to keep his cool, and avoid attacking Scheer

Until yesterday.

When he finally struck back. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took sharp aim at his chief electoral opponent today, casting Andrew Scheer as a divisive force in a campaign-style speech to fire up his troops.

It may be Andrew Scheer's smile. But it's still Stephen Harper's party," he told a raucous room of supporters. "The same policies, the same politics of fear and division. 

If anything, they've been emboldened by successful campaigns elsewhere in the world to divide one against the other."

And all I can say is it's about time, for enough is enough.

Sunny ways are good. They reflect the kind of Canada I'd like to live in. In a grim grey world they are what make Justin Trudeau so popular.

Or so admired.  

But as David Axelrod, Barack Obama's former adviser, said the other day. In the world we live in you have to be prepared to defend what you have gained. 

As the federal Liberals head into the next campaign, the advice they heard from a former top U.S. Democrat operative was “you have to be prepared to push back hard.”

Axelrod said reinforcing positive politics won’t be enough.

“I appreciate, because I was part of a campaign like it, how positive your campaign was in 2015… but the world is a tough, competitive place, and people will do anything to recapture it,” Axelrod said.

And in this country we're still fighting the Harper Party, still fighting for our country and its values.

And here's the best part. 

The Con bullies, the ones who are always attacking others, the ones who have been using wedge issues to set Canadians against Canadians, for years.

Now that Trudeau is attacking them and their leader, they're crying foul.

And the man they call Schmear is wailing like a baby...

Can you believe that? Is he a Trumpling or a dumpling?

Have you ever seen anything more cowardly? Have you ever seen anything more pathetic?

And I must say I liked this progressive woman's response to the ghastly Con Lisa Raitt:

Enough is enough.

The time has come to attack the Cons harder than ever.

And destroy the Harper Party once and for all...

    Baseless attacks? Fear mongering? Name calling? That tweet from Con HQ just described the Con modus operandi since Harper and Dumbo formed their unholy alliance so many years ago.
    Anyone who would believe that is a either a fool and should seriously have their head examined or save time and go ahead with a lobotomy.
    As for JT finally dropping the gloves? YYYYESSSS!!! The conviction and courage in his words were also enhanced by the sincerity he displayed. Take that Smirky McF*ckface!!
    I liken this to a famous quote by the Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto regarding the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve".
    That's right Smirky Schmearmonger. Let's see you smirk your way out of this one.

    1. hi JD....I know, isn't that Con response hilarious? Even when criticizing them Trudeau managed to show some class. And as you know, like you, I'm glad that he finally spoke out because the Cons are such bullies they really do make me feel like vomiting. Or heaven forbid, lowering my head and charging at them like a bull like I used to do in high school. ;)
      I also agree with that Yamamoto quote. The Cons and the Con media have offended so many Canadians, they have awoken a sleeping giant, and they are going to pay for it....

    I love that image of Scheer as a baby, thanks for the laugh. He is as you say truly pathetic. If you lined up all the negative ads Scheer has made since he became leader, they would stretch all the way around a city block. Justin Trudeau has been way too nice to those people, so I'm glad he's finally fighting back.

    1. hi anon@1:07 PM...I'm glad you like baby Scheer, I suspect you'll be seeing him again. ;)But yes, Justin Trudeau has been too nice or too Canadian for too long, and now is the time to put on the boxing gloves again...

    Of course our shit media is now helping to gaslight Trudeau for pushing back.

    1. Anonymous4:05 PM

      It's unbelievable, Trudeau criticizes Scheer in the mildest way and the Con media calls it a "stinging" attack and claims that he can't be for sunny ways anymore? But Scheer can attack Justin every day of the year and he has a "positive message?"Our media isn't just biased, it's a JOKE !!!

    2. Hi anon@1:08 PM...yes I've noticed that, but who can be surprised? They've ignored the torrent of excrement pouring out of the Cons for months, but when Trudeau answers in the most truthful and restrained manner, they are all over him. The Cons and the Con media are made for each other...

    3. Hi anon@4:05 PM...yes, not just biased but a joke. But that's OK, those who side with bullies will go down with them..

    I'm glad Justin is finally telling Scheer off, no man deserves it more than he does. Progressives don't need to show the world they're nicer than the Cons, everybody knows they are. What progressives have to do is defeat the Cons, or all will be for nothing.

    1. hi anon@5:03 are preaching to the converted. I have always maintained that progressives need to stop fighting each other and focus on the real enemy. All those yapping snowflakes going after Justin Trudeau will get a real shock when all they do is elect Andrew Scheer....

  5. If Harpo is gone, why does Scheer have him on speed dial?

    1. hi Steve...the reason is quite simple. Harpo hasn't really gone. His faithful flunkies are still running the party, and the Cons are still Harper's creation....

  6. e.a.f.10:28 PM

    Harper isn't gone. Lisa Raitt is still there along with those who were part of his government. Have they changed? Not so much, so its still Harper's values which govern the federal Conservatives. As long as any of the harper party remain in office, its the harpercon party. Lisa needs to take a good look around. they gave the job to Scheer, when it could have gone to her..........they really aren't her party either. They don't let the "girls" play with the big toys.

    1. Hi e.a.f... yes, as I just explained to Steve, but you do better. Harper had ten years to make the party in his own image, Lisa Raitt is still his hand maiden, and their filthy propaganda is as disgusting as it always was...

    The self absorbed Reform-A-Con logic is entirely understandable. In their view the personal freedom to love, worship, enjoy the same employment and social status is in direct conflict with their beliefs in a heavenly edict. In their view a government that supports equality and civil freedom in public places brings out anguish and division because not all citizens are following the heavenly edict. Its not that they are upset because they have the freedom to choose not to have an abortion or worship in the manner they choose but that other people have the right to make other choices. The self inflicted anguish as the result of being forced to deal with diversity combined with a "I am either winning or loosing" mentality can become a psychological pressure cooker for those trapped inside. Then there are the unscrupulous politicians and media outlets who are willing to turn up the heat in order to achieve their own ends. Similar to a feuding couple it's difficult for a marriage counselor to find common ground when the divorce lawyers are egging them on!

    1. hi RT...I think you sum up the situation very well. The most depressing human characteristic is to judge and try to make the lives of others miserable for no good reason. I confess I sometimes feel like the doctor in the Bridge on the River Kwai, stumbling down to the river in the movie's last scene muttering "madness..madness."
      We're going to have to fight very hard if we're going to vanquish those demons, and save our poor world...

    So let me get this straight. Ever since Trudeau became PM, you, being the loyal, fawning partisan you are, and those who post here, have been crying non-stop about how "mean" the media and Opposition is to Trudeau, about media and pollster conspiracies, and how "Justin" is "so refreshing", and now you're applauding such tactics?

    Let's see....Kathleen Wynne has been doing nothing but fear mongering and demonizing her opponents,then says Ontario isn't the US and we can't let US style politics happen here. All after she's been employing US style attacks. Meanwhile nearly every speaker at Lib2018 convention spends time attacking their opponents, while hardcore Liberals have no tolerance and nothing but utter disdain for anyone who doesn't sing the praises of the PM, yet positive politics and sunny ways is the way to go.

    Good to know that like the man god you fawn over, in addition to the party you criticize, you have talking out of both sides of your mouths down to an art.

    Of course like any comment that criticizes the Liberals, I doubt this one will be published.
