Rachel Thomas, Conservative MP for Lethbridge, Alberta has borrowed a page from the playbook of members in the European Parliament. Last week, a half-dozen MEP’s in Brussels called out Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, branding his methods dictatorial.
Straight away, Canadian media went to work. Step One: take the sting out of the accusations. No references to dictator-status to be included in article headlines. One has to click, then scroll halfway down the page to get to the good part:
To you[Justin Trudeau], these may be liberal methods, for many citizens of the world, it’s a dictatorship of the worst kind.”
Step Two: all those who advance this attitude are racists. Just ask premier woke warrior, Max Fawcett of the National Observer. His observations exemplify the Liberal Snowflake ethos: if it’s anti-Trudeau, it reeks of bigotry and racism.
Conservative MP Rachael Thomas surprised many in the House of Commons this week with a verbal attack on the prime minister. “Dictator,” said Thomas. “According to the Oxford Dictionary, a dictator is a ruler with total power over a country, typically one who has obtained control by force.”
“There are many Canadians who hold the view that this does apply to Mr. Trudeau, stated MP Thomas.
Indeed there are– and Justin Trudeau knows how to deal with them: brand every last one of them a racist. That legacy media agree should come as no surprise– Mr. Trudeau is paying them to do so.
“After calling the prime minister a dictator, Thomas went on to say it will be left up to Canadians to decide in the next federal election.”
Arriving at what is best described as an oxymoron. How can a dictator be placed into office– or removed from office– based on the public vote? This, in turn, calls for a more refined interpretation of Trudeau’s political status.
Our prime minister is more accurately described as a pseudo-dictator. The man is the real thing, but our political process has yet to catch up to his status. This will come in time. Cultural Action Party claim that every move made by Trudeau and the Liberals is a step toward this inevitability.
What we have at present is a grand illusion. The general public believe Canada to be a democracy, and media tow the line accordingly. What is lost in translation is rooted in an aspect of society media do not touch will an 88-foot pole:
The manner in which current politics fit into an historical trajectory of transition from democratic rule to “soft dictatorship.” The void in historical context provides woke liberal media with an ability to scoff at suggestions that Justin Trudeau is a post-modern dictator.
The National Post were first out-of-the-gate with their negation of MP Thomas’ opinions: “If Trudeau’s A Dictator He’s Not A Very Good One” goes the mainstream media refrain.
They miss the point– intentionally. Justin Trudeau is not a “good” dictator. The path to dictatorial power is a process. A look at the history of totalitarianism validates the concept. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither were fascist European dictatorships of the 20th century.
Anyone else notice how Canadian media never speculate on the future of our country? Andrew Coyne, John Ivison, Chris Selley, John Ibbitson. Not a word of speculation on the future state of society flows from their pens. What does this accomplish other than to indemnify PM Trudeau’s political agenda from scrutiny?
So our PM is not a dictator– yet. But he is a dictator-in-the-making. Which makes Canada a dictatorship-in-the-making. Apply this train of thought to MP Rachel Thomas’ accusations, and suddenly she is making good sense.
Moments before Ms. Thomas’ statement, Saskatoon-Ouest MP Brad Redekopp blasted Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act:
“To call in police forces to crush peaceful protesters, under the jackboot of the prime minister’s basic dictatorship,” said MP Redekopp.
Holy Crow– that’s two for Canada, six for the European Parliament. Call in the media snowflake brigade. Easy enough to brand politicians from Croatia, Romania and Germany racist and white supremacists. It’s a bit different when slandering Canadian MP’s in this manner.
Leaving legacy media with two options: ignore what has occured, or tear Rachel Thomas and Brad Redekopp to shreds, branding their hides bigoted and racist.
What other choice is there? To agree with MP Thomas is 100% out of the question. It’ll be a cold day in Hades when CBC and the rest breach the agreement struck with the Trudeau government.
MP Rachel Thomas has verbalized a gut-feeling shared by millions of Canadians. To remedy the fact, media are being paid to obscure Canada’s transition away from democratic rule. Fair to say that government don’t throw billions of dollars at an illusion.
Is it possible MP Thomas has woken up to an idea which needs to be understood by all Canadians?
