Over the past week, hundreds of thousands of people in Iran have risen up against their dictatorship, demanding freedom and condemning the regime's support for terrorism.
Iranian police have arrested protesters by the hundred, and slaughtered others in the streets.
In June 2009, there was a similar uprising. And the newly elected U.S. president, Barack Obama, sided with the ayatollahs.
This time, however, Donald Trump is president.
While everyone was on their Christmas holidays, including every journalist and politician and diplomat, Trump ended Obama’s foreign policy in a single tweet.
Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau hasn’t said a word about it.
Is it because Justin Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre Trudeau, is an official paid propagandist for the Iranian regime?
Or maybe it’s Bombardier, as it so often is:
They have a $100 million sale of their planes to Iran — financed by, you guessed it, Canadian taxpayers.
Canada’s state broadcaster sees this. And they know what they have to do. I'll show you some of the CBC's shameful "reporting" tonight.
I don’t want any Canadian or American lives lost trying to free Iranians from their own dictatorship. But the very least we can do is marshall our moral authority.
Maybe pretend that those dozens of people were killed when an iceberg melted...
NEXT: To talk more about the situation in Iran, I'm joined by Clifford May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.
THEN: Professor Salim Mansur and I talk about his new book, The Qur'an Problem and Islamism: Reflections of a Dissident Muslim.
