Trudeau calls anyone who questions him a ‘bigot’


You have to wonder if Liberal leadership wannabe Justin Trudeau has anyone around him who realizes how completely idiotic it is to tell people who don’t like the idea of him speaking to a group sponsored by a terrorist supporting organization that they are ‘racists’:

Trudeau told a crowd of thousands at the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conference in Toronto that his critics attempted to tap into “fears and prejudices” that sap the acceptance of others.

“It is short-sighted to pit groups of Canadians against one another. It may make some feel good for a little while, or even work politically in the short term, but it is no way to build a country,” Trudeau said in a keynote address. “It is not who we are.”

I am also very curious how Trudeau equating this to 100-year-old French/English issues plays out in Quebec:

He pointed to Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier as he struggled as a young man to bridge the fierce divide between English and French-Canadians. Trudeau spoke of the role Canada’s institutions, such as its constitutional protections, play in guaranteeing freedom for every group. (see here)

I’m going to guess that the average Quebecer doesn’t relate to being lumped in with someone who is Reviving the Islamic Spirit.

Update: Well that didn’t take long…

Brian Lee Crowley, managing director of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute:

…the controversy surrounding the conference was not about politics but about connections to “radical Islamists who think Western ‘liberty’ is simply a sign of decadence and moral decay.”Laurier would have recognized them as people to be called out and specifically excluded from the search for a modus vivendi suited to Canadian life,” (see here)

    Trudeau’s campaign is getting so embarrasingly childish that a desperate Shiny Pony may soon need spokespunk Kinsella to subside his slide into oblivion.

    LOL! “Anyone unlike me is a bigot!” HA! That would make a great T-shirt slogan!

  3. Peter Milot Says:

    His speech was condescending in the extreme. Just what special insight does Justin posess to say “It is not who we are”. If crass political pandering to a special interest group is how he defines Canadians, then he shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near 24 Sussex Drive.

    I call any one that questions trudeau sucking up to islamic cults patriotic.

    Or is a cult that promotes child sex and marriage justine’s true calling ?
    Could this be the real justine finally showing up.

    Or is he just a self centered spoiled little twerp who doesn’t think before he grovels for votes.

    I find it difficult to believe that Canadians buy into Trudeau’s nonsense at all.The guy is an immature jerk at the best of times.

      The only suggestion that they do, comes from polls like Forum Research telephoning a list of people and asking how they feel about Trudeau Jr.This is not an issue or policy related interview, quite to the contrary.. I suspect a great number of Canadians are appalled by the thought of someone as shallow as him as PM.

    “It is short-sighted to pit groups of Canadians against one another”.
    Really, Mr “Albertans running the country doesn’t work” Trudeau? The Leftist hypocrite shines oh-so-brightly in this one.

  7. Sean M Says:

    If theres anyone that would know about “bigotry” it would be the spawn of Trudeau Sr. Trudeau Jr. is just so thick headed he doesn’t realize thats it’s he who is the bigot. Arrogant little fool.

    In my opinion, this is the Axelrod way of winning elections. It worked for Obama, right?

  9. Jen Says:

    They couldn’t get Obama for as their leader so, they media, here created a ‘white’ Obama-lite in Trudeau. And we all know how the american media behave around Obama-same here.
    What exactly did Obama do during his last four years in Office- the same here. What exactly has Trudeau done while in OPPOSITION.

    That the little prince would invoke Wilfred Laurier is name dropping.
    As far as pitting groups of Canadians against each other, the 10 million Canadians in 4 Western proviences aren’t good enough to run Canada, Justin said so.
    The PM can only come from Quebec according to Mr Trudeau
    Here is what Mr Laurier said in 1907, read this Justin.

    “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes a Canadian and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet a Canadian, and nothing but a Canadian… There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is a Canadian, but something else also, isn’t a Canadian at all. We have room for but one flag, the Canadian flag… And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the Canadian people.’

      Great quote, one unfamiliar to me.
      Somehow I don’t expect this to be highlighted in LPC political messages by Trudeau Jr., or anyone else.

  11. dddddancetotheradio Says:

    Zhoostehn only sees Canada through the prism of English and French.
    Minorities are constituencies to be vacuumed up into his bipolar world view and then ignored.
    His values aren’t theirs.
    And he doesn’t give a **** about them.

  12. Bubba Brown Says:

    O. K. I have a major concern here.
    Looking at the Reviving Islam picture of Trudeau Junior giving a speech.
    Why, why, why, are there no CANADIAN FLAGS on the stage?
    This is a conference in Canada, supposedly supported by Canadians of Islamic origin.
    So where is our flag?
    If you can not or will not answer that question go back to where ever it is you came from and never darken our door again.
    Bonus points if you take Mr Hairdoo with you.
    Cheers Bubba Brown
