Iran has nothing even close to free and fair elections, and Liberal MP Majid Jowhari is facing a massive backlash in his riding, which is home to many Canadians of Iranian descent.
Liberal MP Majid Jowhari has generated tremendous anger in his riding of Richmond Hill by referring to the brutal Islamist Iranian regime as an “elected government.”
Jowhari made the comments after an official government statement. Here’s what he said:
“As our government is closely monitoring the ongoing protests in Iran; it is my sincere hope that the brave nation of #Iran have the opportunity to air their legitimate financial, social and political concerns with the support of their elected government, in a secure environment and without the fear of persecution.”
People are most angry about him calling Iran’s undemocratic regime an “elected government,” and for saying people were protesting with the “support” of that government.
Of course, in the world of reality, we know that Iran’s government is a dictatorship, and people are being killed by the government for protesting, not being “supported” by the regime.
Jowhari – who was born in Iran – represents the most heavily-Iranian riding in all of Canada. As noted in a recent report, many of his constituents are enraged:
“If I can put it in one word: disgusted,” says Richmond Hill realtor Hamid Gharajeh, who says Jowhari’s actions since his election have shocked his Iranian-Canadian constituents. “Ever since he’s been elected, all he’s been doing is trying to work with the existing government of Iran, and trying to get them involved in Canadian politics, inviting members of parliament of this so-called government that has not been elected by the Iranian people.”
The report also notes that many Canadians originally from Iran still live in fear of Iran’s efforts to punish people abroad, and hurt their families still living under the dictatorship.
Additionally, Jowhari has had “friendship” meetings with members of Iran’s undemocratic government, including the ruthless Iranian Revolutionary Guard – something that should never happen in Canada.
The fact that Jowhari is so ignorant of the true nature of Iran’s regime – or even worse is a possible supporter of that regime – is a huge concern, and he is clearly unfit to serve in office in Canada’s Parliament.
Many in the riding feel betrayed by Jowhari, with the report noting the following:
“Zandi says the community knew little about Jowhari’s politics when he won the Liberal nomination, and the Liberal wave that swept the GTA carried him into office. “It became more apparent where he stood after the election,” says Zandi. “There’s a great deal of disenchantment and anger against Mr Jowhari.”
Most disturbingly, Jowhari’s submissive attitude towards the Iranian regime fits with the horrible approach the Trudeau government has taken to dictatorships and radical Islamism.
Clearly, the Trudeau government believes in bowing down to brutal regimes and hateful ideologies, and this is putting both the values, and the security of the Canadian people at risk.
