Poor Justin Trudeau, right now he's probably wondering why suddenly he's facing criticism? After all that's not supposed to be part of the media script. He's supposed to say stuff, like, important stuff, and then they're supposed to express how wonderful he is, coo about his cool yoga poses and his great hair. Not laugh at him.
But this past week that's exactly what the world is doing, having a good laugh at Justin's lavish praise for his Uncle Fidel who recently passed away. The rest of the world knew him as the murderous dictator of Cuba, Fidel Castro. The man who imprisoned gays for the crime of being gay (but don't worry Justin, you'll still be invited to all the pride marches this summer) Castro also summarily executed thousands of dissidents and thousands more after mock trials. Many found themselves imprisoned indefinitely for not showing enough love to this "much loved leader."
Even the newspaper of record for the far left, The Guardian, couldn't stomach Castro's complete disregard for human rights.
Ah but Justin does care about human rights, when pressed about his eulogy for Uncle Fidel, he finally admitted, after some evasion, that yes Castro was a dictator, and he was perhaps, a tad iffy on that human rights stuff, but, he stressed, that didn't mean he wasn't, "I'm totally down with human rights," he told reporters in response to the worldwide mockery he was enduring, "anyone who knows me knows I'm like super big on human rights, totally." He wasn't able to '"like totally," express his deep commitment to human rights any further, as his handlers quickly bundled him off to his (taxpayer provided) private jet.
Well, what the hell, praise for a brutal dictator and praise for China's "basic dictatorship," doesn't mean he's not opposed to human rights, thanks for clarifying that Justin.
Oh, but wait, there's that bill C-16 the Liberal's just passed, which will criminalize certain words, or actually, criminalize the absence of certain words, that is, the preferred pronouns of someone you've never met. That, uh, sounds a little heavy handed to me Justin. Well if you don't like it (so goes the government's stance) then you must be transphobic to begin with, and filled with violence, cause as Little Potato told us, "words do hurt." And so, once they've outlawed all the hurtful words, the country will be safe, a safe space, with no meanies, cause they'll be locked up, just like how dear old Uncle Fidel would have done it...er, no, scratch that last part.
