Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to call a federal election this month, taking advantage of a ramped-up vaccine roll-out to regain the parliamentary majority he lost in 2019.
Bringing about a most salient question: how has it come to be that the greatest catastrophe in modern history is serving as a political “shot in the arm” for Justin Trudeau?
It is arguable that by calling an election at this time, Mr. Trudeau is taking advantage of society’s pandemic misery for personal gain. Instead of considering such a point of view, establishment media speak of the Liberal’s “strategic window of time” to ensure a return to a majority government.
“How crafty it would be if the Liberals can sneak in an election before the 4th wave arrives. Now is the time for Trudeau to take advantage of an increase in the polls based upon his pandemic performance” and so on and so forth.
Cultural Action Party has a better idea. Why don’t the Liberals and our leftist media get together to create a press release entitled “Three Cheers For Our Side?”
Isn’t it comforting to know that government and legacy media are working together to leverage social misery by locking in Trudeau’s Liberals for additional four years.
In case any readers failed math, this will make for a full decade of Justin Trudeau. Now that’s true misery. As our PM transforms social disaster into political success, serious students of politics may want to recognize what media refuse to confess:
Nothing will stop Justin Trudeau. Plague, disease, missing children’s charity funds– you name it, and the politician in teflon survives it to lead in the polls.
The situation is binary in structure: either Justin’s popularity is real, or it is a lie. At least one observation speaks for the latter. Consider the punching bag of the American left, Donald Trump. Even as he was despised, countless photo and video media images revealed scores of rabid Trump supporters waving placards in the faces of CNN cameramen.
Not so for Justin Trudeau. Do tell–where are the hoards of frothing-at-the-mouth fans waving Transgender flags in the air? We have seen Trudeau himself waving this banner with glee–but never do we see flesh-and blood supporters of Trudeau himself. Does this man actually have supporters, or what?
Now, contrast this with his humungous popularity according to media, as well as leadership in every public opinion poll of the last four years. Can anyone remember when the Conservative Party last led in a federal poll? When was this– at the conclusion of the Battle of 1812?
There is something very wrong within this political dynamic. If CAP didn’t know better, we would believe Justin Trudeau has been “prime minister designate’ for the past six years, and is about to receive license to continue for an additional four years.
According to a recent article from the Globe & Mail, opposition parties say “Justin Trudeau would be irresponsible to trigger an election amid heightened concern over a fourth wave of the pandemic”
Degree to which this will impede a Liberal victory? Try nothing. Pourquoi? Because the past six years has shown the that Trudeau is made of political steel. Immutable, omniscient, omnipotent remains the former drama teacher.
Who would vote for this person knowing that he may intentionally utilize the greatest social disaster of the past century to gain his precious majority government? Indeed, some will. For CAP, the very concept is detestable
Then again, who really knows–perhaps some pseudo-dictators cannot lose under any circumstances. As in, regardless if Canadians place a single vote, or choose to watch Hockey Night in Canada instead.
