Four years ago this week, two Canadian soldiers — Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, and Army reservist Corporal Nathan Cirillo — died in two separate, Islamically motivated terrorist attacks on the Canadian soil.
Tonight I'll look back at these horrific crimes, along with all the widely available evidence that these murders were jihadist attacks, one of which came to an end only after a shootout in Parliament itself.
Next, I'll read you this week's statement from Justin Trudeau, commemorating the anniversary of these attacks. When you hear it, you may notice that missing in all the liberal mumbo-jumbo is one word:
In fact, Trudeau said instead:
“...in the face of cowardly violence and fear-mongering, we will not compromise on our most cherished values: Freedom, democracy, diversity and inclusion.”
Justin Trudeau uses this very sad commemoration to lecture us on diversity and inclusion again. And don't you dare point out that it was a terrorist attack or you're the fear monger, on the same level as the terrorist, according to our prime minister.
But you know what Justin Trudeau had absolutely no problem calling "terrorism"? The Quebec City mosque attack — but that shooter isn't even charged with terrorism-related crimes.
Then again, what do you expect from an intellectual black hole like Trudeau? He thinks terrorists are misunderstood, and "have a lot to teach us."
On the other hand, arguably Canada's best premier, Doug Ford, marked this sad day by calling these crimes "murder."
Even more importantly, Ontario PCs have proposed a law to permanently strip convicted terrorists of benefits like access to health Care coverage, driver's licenses, housing assistance or even a hunting or fishing license.
Unfortunately, I find myself agreeing with Justin Trudeau for once — we absolutely will learn something from these returning ISIS terrorists:
They'll show us just what sort of dangerous idiot our prime minister is.
My fear is that Canadians will learn this the hard way...
