“I could be very harsh, and you could find stories that are disgusting[about China], but in a way I’m harsher on Canada.”
— Alexandre Trudeau, brother of Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
Cultural Action Party has written about the curious political belief system of Alexandre Trudeau on previous occasions. One reason we have done so is simple: no media organization ever speaks negatively about this individual.
In September, 2016, leading news magazine Maclean’s published a piece on Alexandre “Sascha” Trudeau. Within the article, Alex’s admiration for communist nations and their despotic rulers was front-and-centre.
Not limited to China, younger brother offered a rousing tribute to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro subsequent to his death in 2016:
The PM’s brother Alexandre Trudeau wrote in the Toronto Star that Castro was “something of a superman whose intellect is one of the most broad and complete that can be found.”
At the time, current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau followed suit with this commentary:
Fidel Castro was a “remarkable leader who made significant improvements to the education and health care of his island nation” and was rewarded with the “deep and lasting affection” of Cubans.
Castro led a communist revolution in Cuba in 1953 known as the “Day of the Revolution”.
In terms of the communist revolution in China under Chairman Mao Tse Tung, the following is recorded for posterity:
And yet Alexandre Trudeau is “harsher on Canada than China.” To call this an under-recognized element of Canadian politics is akin to branding our current PM a “leading Canadian nationalist.” Alex Trudeau is, after all, the brother of a two-term prime minister, as well as the son of a three-term PM.
No surprise, in terms of political commentary, Mr. Alexandre has of late been quiet as a church mouse. One may surmise this fact is influenced by his efforts to prevent the deportation of Algerian-born terror suspect Mohamed Harket in 2016.
This Mr. Trudeau followed up with a film financed in part by the government of Iran. Entitled “The Great New Game,” the documentary rationalizes Iran’s build-up of nuclear arms.
What remains equally fascinating is the fact that throughout Alexandre Trudeau’s three-decade career, establishment media have not once condemned brother Alex regarding his spurious political career.
