Justin Trudeau: The Prime Minister from Tumblr?

Lauren SouthernRebel Commentator
 

Justin Trudeau is a feel-good politician.

He's a former drama teacher, a strident feminist, and has already gone viral as the “sexiest Prime Minister in the world.” It's almost as if he was made for a BuzzFeed article.

With youthful looks, an effeminate voice, and a fondness for purple beads, Trudeau embodies a newly progressive Canada. He attended college amid the first wave of identity politics and political correctness in Canadian society, and he takes office amid the second. His rhetoric would not be out of place among the advocates of safe spaces and trigger warnings on campus. But he isn't running a student union – he's running the country.

Trudeau's image often seems to be a calculated attempt to channel the feel-good vibe of the worst elements of millennial hipsterdom. He spent his campaign attending pride parades, taking selfies with topless hippies (yes, that actually happened), and making youth-friendly pledges like his promise to legalise marijuana.

One might say that Trudeau is just trying to show his tolerance. But as a libertarian, I'm not so sure. If he truly believed in freedom, he wouldn't have pledged his party's support for Bill C-51, which enables the warrantless surveillance of Canadian citizens. Nor would he endorse the smiling authoritarianism of modern feminists.

The problem with wearing the clothes of my generation's maddest social justice warriors is that to do it properly, you can't just repeat their feel-good messages. Their authoritarian streak, concealed beneath welcoming messages of tolerance and diversity, will eventually rub off on you too.

Take his interview with the Toronto Star, where he stated that he was “proud to be a feminist” and promised to tackle “video game misogyny” as well as “misogyny in certain types of music.” Like many before him, Trudeau gullibly swallowed progressives' spiel about tolerance, and ended up calling for the censorship of pop culture. Widespread ridicule was the inevitable result.

Even more embarrassingly, Trudeau felt the need to comment on GamerGate, the push for more ethics and less progressive-led censorship in the world of video games. It's certainly an important controversy, but I'm not sure a world leader should involve themselves in hashtag wars. Even more so if they don't understand them – and Trudeau, who ended up accusing thousands of innocent gamers of being misogynists, clearly doesn't.

Now that the Prime Minister from Tumblr has been elected, we have to wonder how long it'll be before he decides he decides it's hip to bring back 1950s-style censorship of entertainment. Or maybe he'll establish “safe spaces” on Parliament Hill first? Or say we need to be more considerate about the feelings of Islamic extremists? Oh wait, that already happened.

Trudeau can't keep pandering to authoritarian progressives without eventually following through with policy. I suspect that if Trudeau takes Canada into a new era of censorship and control-freakery, it'll happen by accident, following the deceptively welcoming messages of social justice warriors. Trudeau will stumble into tyranny with a big grin on his face, an indecipherable soundbite about inclusion and diversity, and a thousand retweets on his smartphone.

The little warm and fuzzy Justin and feel good style of government, only thing missing is the legal weed to get everybody into feeling good. I bet this little warm fuzzy PM is a big hit with Vladimir Putin at the G20, wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall in Vladimir’s room to hear his comments about Justin “Case”

Does anyone wonder why women with 27% of the liberal seats got 50% of the cabinet posts? Is that equal representation Feminist style?

Justin advising POTUS that Canada will not be supporting fight against ISIS, don’t seem right. Isn’t this also kinda flying in the face of Bill C-51. I think this guy is a dangerous PM and I don’t feel as safe since his election, IMO.

“Trudeau will stumble into tyranny with a big grin on his face,an indecipherable soundbite about inclusion and diversity, and a thousand retweets on his smartphone,” Yes, it will seem so natural when it happens, so politically correct to the minds of the politically correct, that who but those dinosaur Christians and other conservative types could object?

Will it actually happen? Yes, and sooner than you think. Don’t forget, he openly stated that he admires dictatorship as an efficient form of government, so it isn’t as though it would be a big leap for him to actually become a dictator.

This is good. It highlights the problem with the pc wave. I won’t attempt to spell it out as well as Lauren, but it seems almost an entity of itself, an entity that could and is out of control. As Lauren said, with a mission to appease everyone we are going to wake up one day in a world indecipherable from what it is today where we have things like opinions and are free, more or less, to govern our own lives, families, and children. They complained about a police state taking away their freedoms, but what about a baby sitter state trying to save us from everything, even ourselves?

Fred, I can’t even fathom how someone so shallow as to just give one sentence as truth could possibly comment on anyone.

I would pay to see Alphaomegasin do a video on Justin Trudeau.

Lauren Southern, I agree with you on everything – except, C-51 – which is there to PROTECT us from Terrorists :)

Keep up the good Work – I always enjoy what you Contribute :)

God you are a mindless gash.

Having, since the traitor, Trudeau-père, dictated it so, been the country you’re having when you’re not having a country, Canada has further spiraled into being the third-world Hell-hole that execrable traitor made inevitable it be — and now has the “prime minister” and federal “government” you are having, when you’re also having neither of those!
Vale, Canada.

Trudeau loves;
-China’s basic dictatorship
-To ridicule others
-Being independent of his peers…takes pride in not being influenced by peers (voters)
-His power and independent wealth
-His subsequent ability to never have to listen to anyone else
-His killer instinct especially in government
-His own arrogance and vanity
-His skin deep ‘beauty’ and image
-His tongue that does not seem to be attached to substance

What a resume for a potential autocrat! a la Muammar Gaddafi
Can’t you just SEE HIM playing dress up in all those outrageous outfits as he has already shown a penchance for dressing up, such as his play acting as Guy Fawkes, moustache, beard and all: the man who tried to bomb the British Parliament and kill the king! How appropriate!

As you can see Canadians agree with little Justin: Canada belongs to Quebec.

Well we used to have a resource based economy. Now we will have an economy based on " love and feeling good " . I think we need a new National Anthem , goes like this :

I’d like to buy the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves
Very Trudeau -esque wouldn’t you say , Eh

He will enforce new speech codes and pander to Muslim extremists. Votes have consequences.

Agree with you on this one!

My heart goes out to all the taxpayers in the private sector. You Will be be finished when this bunch gets through with you. The Government workers just won the lotto.

US voted in a communist-like activist lawyer twice. This is small stuff for Canada – a man-child is now PM. Taxes will go up and the country will slide badly. So what.

What is going to be fun is taking pot shots at Trudeau. He’s not very bright and is being sold like a blonde bimbo with big boobs.

But Trudeau’s not a bimbo, he’s a mimbo. : )

One thing I’ve learned is that the person that gets voted in, share many characteristics of the voters that voted for him/her/it. That being said, and running on that premise, if the youth vote which I suspect was considerable, voted for Trudeau we’re SJW’s and their compatriots, then wouldn’t it stand to reason that Trudeau would share the same qualities of brainwashed propaganda that those voters do? “Safe spaces” “White privilege” and all the usual B.S that follows those trends, will surely be forced down our gullets.

Just another reason that #CanadaisEffed

Edited version: (Wish we could edit the original)

Watch out – if he get’s PO’d he will be PRONE to short fits of “entitled outrage” and that might cause some serious grief as he backs those little hissy fits with righteous entitlement.

Be wary of this person until he is proven – I think he will shock some of us with his outbursts.

I am certain there are some world leaders that are already shaking their heads.

And I believe the fits of entitled outrage will come when the honeymoon is over. And that honeymoon will eventually end – they always do..
