Why Hasn’t Trudeau Condemned Antifa’s Attacks On Police & The Media?

Physical attacks on police and journalists have no place in a secure and free society. When those attacks start to become normalized, those in power must speak out against the perpetrators, or violence will begin to spread.

That’s why Justin Trudeau’s refusal to speak out against the Antifa violence in Quebec City is huge failure of leadership on his part.

Any Prime Minister – particularly one with such a large social media following – could do a lot of good by being clear that there is zero tolerance for violence against the police and against members of the media.

After all, without law and order and without a free press, our society would cease to function.

This isn’t about taking a political position. If a far-right group had attacked police and journalists, it would be just as important for Trudeau to condemn them. In this case however, it’s simply a fact that it’s a far-left group that committed these acts of violence.

Refusing to condemn is tacit approval

Trudeau’s refusal to condemn the violent Antifa actions is a tacit approval of them. The longer Trudeau goes without condemning it, the more it seems he is okay with what happened – which is an unacceptable position for a Canadian “leader.”

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.

Very true Spencer … but this is no “leader”.
I hope the people that voted for this part-time drama coach are duly ashamed … of him, and of themselves for voting for him!

Why are the Liberals talking about M-103 when Imam Mazim Abdul-Adhim, head of Hibz ut Tahrir in Canada is calling for Shari’ah law in Canada? He is a promoter of hate but that is OK.

After several high-profile protests, the Canadian Parliament introduced Bill C-309, which bans the wearing of masks during a riot or other unlawful assembly. The bill became law on June 19, 2013. Those convicted of it face up to 10 years in prison. Canada’s Criminal code, Section 351, also covers “Disguise with Intent”, whereby “Every one who, with intent to commit an indictable offence, has his face masked or coloured or is otherwise disguised is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years”. With some exceptions, an indictable offence in Canada is one… Read more »

There were many protests against M103 (MP Iqra Khalid), a direct attack on ‘free speech’. The one’s I attended at Toronto City Hall were every Saturday for quite some time. There never were many of us M103 protesters, hence we were very much outnumbered by Antifa gangs and other leftist supporters. Fortunately, the Toronto Police did an ace job of protecting us from the Antifa thugs, and thugs they are. We are just ordinary Canadian citizens afraid of losing freedom of speech, and rightfully so. Nothing ‘alt’ right about us. I even attended a protest in Brampton, organized by a… Read more »

In response to the article title, what do you think?

It’s because he wants to destroy and transform Canada into his a hellhole.

MSM and the Left in Canada were quick enough to decry Trump’s lack of condemnation of the Alt-Right and Ultra-Right violence, but said nothing about the Antifa violence.

I think I understand the message: it’s not all right for Right-wingers to be violent, but Left-wing violence is not only acceptable, but encouraged by the silence of the media and the Left.

I just found out that the Quebec PM, Philippe Couillard, announced on August 21, 2017 that he is on the side of Antifa, regardless of the violence. Here is the article, however it`s in French: http://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/politique/politique-quebecoise/201708/21/01-5126268-couillard-condamne-la-violence-mais-il-a-choisi-son-camp.php?utm_categorieinterne=trafficdrivers&utm_contenuinterne=cyberpresse_vous_suggere_5126215_article_POS4

“Programmed by daddy, responding as programmed — in short, the perfect “Manchurian Candidate” — one who has no mind of their own and only responds to stimuli — exactly as Justin has so often clearly demonstrated.
