As one who generally admires heroism, I’m all for heroes. Until recently that is because it seems the definition of “hero” has been severely downgraded, based on recent comments made by Justin Trudeau.
It happened during Justin’s “Getting to Know You” cross-Canada Timmy’s Tour, when he stopped in Winnipeg to conduct a town hall meeting with elementary school children.
A fourth-grader named Evan asked Trudeau about U.S. President Donald Trump, saying, “I wanted to tell something about… Trump. He’s doing something bad. Are you going to save Canada for our future?”
Naturally, the trained seals in the crowd cheered loudly, and a chuckling Trudeau responded, saying:
“Evan is my new hero.”
So basically, a boy states he’s afraid of the bad thing Trump is doing, even though the “bad thing” is never identified. And because this boy is inexplicably scared about a phantom menace, this somehow meets the benchmark of “hero” in the eyes of Justin Trudeau?
Apparently, in Trudeaupian Canada, if you express fear of someone or something on the opposite side of the political spectrum, well, congratulations. You’re an instant hero!
Granted, the boy is a minor, but consider minors from the Greatest Generation, many of whom as young as 14 lied about their age so they could enlist in the army. Now that’s heroism – putting one’s life on the line for one’s country.
Then again, such patriotism likely doesn’t resonate with Justin especially when you consider Papa Pierre’s odious conduct during World War II when he rode his motorcycle around Montreal wearing a German military uniform and helmet.
As Canadian blood was being spilled in Europe, Pierre Trudeau was inexplicably pretending to be a Nazi, supposedly in the commission of a “prank.” What was the punch-line of this “prank”?
No wonder Justin Trudeau looks upon a fearful fourth-grader as a hero. After all, the idea of doing something truly heroic doesn’t seem to count for much in the eyes of the Trudeau Clan nor their apologists.
