Trudeau Reprimanded for Accusing Jewish, Conservative Party MP of Standing ‘With People Who Wave Swastikas’
Melissa Lantsman, a Conservative MP for the Toronto suburb of Thornhill, confronted Trudeau about “Emergencies Act” and his insults directed at fellow Canadians.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had another disastrous session in Parliament, trying to explain the need to impose the “Emergencies Act” as provinces roll back their mandates and transportation arteries open after protests conclude.
The day began going downhill for Trudeau when Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP) Melissa Lanstman asked the prime minister about his sudden change in attitude toward the truckers after the demonstrations against the Covid-19 vaccine mandates began.
Lantsman was reminding Trudeau of his own words in the past where he literally said that the Canadian government needs to trust Canadians. And his words in the present crisis, where he’s insulted Canadians as “misogynistic, racist, women haters, science deniers, and the fringe.”
She asks when Trudeau lost his way, saying he’s now fanning the flames of an unjustified national emergency.
An indignant Trudeau bitterly clung to the mantra that, due to the presence of one Nazi banner and one Confederate flag (which may have come from infiltrators) out of the thousands and thousands of demonstrators, the protesters and those who support them must be…Nazis. Goodwin’s Law is alive and well in Canada.
The response did not go over well with Parliament.
Trudeau responded with scorn to her complaints, saying: ‘Conservative Party members can stand with people who wave swastikas, they can stand with people who wave the confederate flag.
‘We will chose to stand with Canadians who deserve to be able to get to their jobs, and get their lives back. These illegal protests need to stop and they will.’
Trudeau was then reprimanded by the Speaker of the House of Commons and other MPs.
The other side of chamber erupted in response, prompting Speaker of the House of Commons Anthony Rota to interrupt in an attempt to restore order. He also admonished all — “including the Right Honourable prime minister” — to avoid “inflammatory” language in the House.
MP Dane Lloyd later rose to rebuke Trudeau for his comment, saying, “Mr. Speaker, I’ve never seen such shameful and dishonorable remarks coming from this prime minister. My great-grandfather flew over 30 missions over Nazi Germany. My great-great-uncle’s body lies at the bottom of the English Channel. There are members of this Conservative caucus who are the descendants of victims of the Holocaust.
“For the prime minister to accuse any colleague in this house of standing with a swastika is shameful. I’m giving the prime minister an opportunity. I’m calling on him to unreservedly apologize for this shameful remark,” he added.
Trudeau three times ignored Lloyd’s demand for an apology, which Lloyd said “speaks volumes.”
Lantsman also responded, noting that she is Jewish and had “never been singled out or made to feel less” due to her religion…until Trudeau.
This response is fantastic, the support from her colleagues terrific, and the fact that Trudeau left without an apology is completely in character.

Elsewhere in Canada, truckers were hugging police officers and singing “O, Canada.”

THIS is What Trudeau is so Scared of?

It appears that at least in Canada, progressives can no longer rely on smears of Nazism to dismiss the concerns of a vast swath of their citizens. Let’s hope this trend continues its way down south.
Speaking of trends, millions who have been following the events in Canada now know about Lantsman, whose name was a trending topic on Twitter as the post was prepared. The next elections in Canada will be fascinating.
