When it comes to the security of Canadians, there’s no room for absurd political correctness.
The more people hear about it, the more people are outraged by the dangerously weak policy of the Trudeau government towards ISIS fighters returning to Canada.
That outrage extends to the pathetic political correctness the government is using to refer to Islamic State fighters who are seeking to return to Canada.
Here’s what Trudeau government spokesman said Dan Brien (obviously using PMO approved talking points), when asked about Canada’s policies on ISIS fighters coming back to the country:
“Returning foreign terrorist travellers and their families, specifically women and children, require the appropriate disengagement and reintegration support.”
While the “reintegration support,” is the most disturbing part, the fact that the government is trying to “rebrand” dangerous Jihadis as “returning foreign terrorist travellers” is absurd.
This is disgracefully manipulative wording by the Trudeau government. These people weren’t sightseeing in a place terrorism happened to occur. They were actively fighting on behalf of a brutal terrorist organization.
It unfortunately fits with a troubling pattern of the Trudeau government prioritizing political correctness above all else, and seeking to downplay what is a real threat to the Canadian people. After all, other countries are trying to eliminate Jihadis before they can return, while the Trudeau government seems most worried about sounding “nice.”
This is a pathetic and dangerous level of political correctness, and it reveals that the government simply isn’t taking the security of Canadians seriously.
