Justin Trudeau is not a leader, he is a mascot

Written By Daniel Bordman, Posted on June 8, 2020

In May 2020, the outdoors was a place so dangerous and the prospect of reopening the economy so distant, that a 14-day self-isolation turned into a months long stay at the cottage for Prime Minister Trudeau.

In May, the political calculus surrounding the Coronavirus was finite.  Going outside will kill people, even though keeping the economy closed may destroy countless lives and plunge families into poverty, not a single life was negotiable.  Ignore the irony that the Trudeau government is borrowing the logic of the most hardline anti-abortion activist.

But suddenly, everything changed.  With the incident of police brutality in the US in the death of George Floyd, it soon became imperative that we all go outside and gather in massive crowds.

This brings us to Justin Trudeau taking a knee in what will become to known the best example of “virtue signaling”.

Let’s follow logic applied here by Trudeau & Co. Mass poverty and depression are not as important as human life, but racism is much worse than poverty and depression and fighting it is more important than preserving human life.

This brings us to Justin Trudeau and his quest to end racism.  His method of choice was to go into a protest and take a knee to end racism.

Now, this would be fine except for one key fact: he is the Prime Minister of Canada.

If he was a true leader, he would have realized that he actually has the power to do something about police brutality and/or systemic racism.  If these were truly the most dangerous threats to society in the wake of the pandemic, he could have used his position to reopen parliament and worked to enact laws that would curb police brutality.

What would be more helpful, federal funding for mandatory body cams for police, or taking a knee?

Of course, the obvious chink in Trudeau’s armour on this issue of systemic racism in Canada is that despite his best verbal efforts to stand against it, he will always be dogged by his blackface habit that lasted into his 20’s.

If Justin Trudeau really cared about these issues, there are a hundred of ways he could make a difference as Prime Minister.  Instead, he only wants to look like he cares.  That is why he went in front of the cameras to take a knee for the photo. 

In other words, he is not on the field working towards a common goal with his team.  His is on the sidelines riling up the crowd.  He is the mascot for the international Left.

    I agree that he is the mascot. I don’t think there is much, except emty rhetoric in that head of his. I am really at a loss as to why the nation hasn’t risen up and kicked him to the curb. I watch this tragicomedy unfold and I am deeply concerned that the land of my birth has just become a banana republic. Folks who hear my accent ask; "Are you american"? Nowadays I say yes, because I am deeply ashamed to say canadian…

    That was extremely well written and hit the mark! Never in all my years have I seen such a virtue embodied in such a hypocrite. Its astounding to watch the bastard work. By his knee, all throats of white are bled.
    His elitism, his money has made him stupid.
