Oh, Canada (#TrudeauEulogies)

Oh, Canada (#TrudeauEulogies)

Canada is still glorious and free, but very embarrassed by PM Justin Trudeau’s homage to Fidel Castro.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had one of the most cringeworthy statements for departed tyrant Fidel Castro (emphasis added):

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the death of former Cuban President Fidel Castro:

“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.

While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.

“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

In particular, that phrase, “while a controversial figure,” and the mention of heath care and education (which are overstated) whitewashed generations of repression. And it inspired widespread Twitter outrage, including from Marco Rubio and many Canadian politicians:

But mostly, Trudeau became the object of mockery, using the hashtag #TrudeauEulogies, in which other monsters from history had their crimes against humanity described in such euphemistic terms.

Here are some of my favorites:

This is Canada right now:

And who can forget Napoleon’s persistent campaigns to standardize European systems of weights and measures?

Glad he said what he did. It shows him for what he is: an idiot and empty of a suit as Barack Obama.

And he’s letting muslims in. Brilliant! /sarc

“The Cuban Boat People regret that we did not hang around long enough to enjoy the genius of this great Revolutionary.”

At the weigh in for reality, Trudeau will always be less than a featherweight.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau another in a long line of out of touch progressives.

Brother is no good either!

Raul Castro’s Long History of Crimes Against Humanity

What the hell is wrong with Canada.

    Actually …. nothing…. when the US was driven out of Cuba, Canadian businesses took over operating former US properties in Cuba. It’s been a Win-Win for Canada and Castro. Keeping Raul in power promises to keep the relationship going strong.

The one who really deserves to be mocked is the President of Ireland. Embarrassing to be Irish right now.

Elian’s mom say hello from the other side.
