For more than half a century, a strategy of the Liberal Party of Canada was to slowly absorb all the symbols of Canada into the Liberal Party. To brand themselves as the Canada Party; to make it seem as if they are the "natural governing party," and anything else is an aberration, an anomaly, almost un-Canadian.
An obvious example is changing the Canadian flag — the change from the old Canadian Red Ensign to the Liberal Red “Pearson Pennant,” as it was nicknamed. Canada fought in all our great wars under the Red Ensign. It shows our history and our allegiances. But the Liberals wanted the country’s flag to look more like their party flag, so they changed it.
Party of the flag. Party of the anthem. Party of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Party of the colour red. Party of all the national symbols. That was the Liberal Party until Harper finally dispatched it.
So what is the Liberal Party about now?
Obviously, it’s about one man — Justin Trudeau. Perfect for a vain narcissistic like him.
But what does Trudeau have to say about Canada? That’s where it gets a bit odd.
Trudeau frequently disparages Canada as having a culture or an identity at all — he usually does that when he’s abroad. He tells foreign media that we’re a post-national country with no central identity of our own.
So when did the central Liberal brand move from the patriotism of Pearson and Chretien, to the self-loathing of Trudeau?
It all fell into place after Trudeau's "genocide" statement yesterday, which I reported on last night.
Trudeau has put us in the garbage can with the likes of Hitler and Pol Pot.
Why is he smearing us in a way that we would never accept from a foreign leader?
Speaking of which, do you doubt that China will now use Trudeau’s accusations against us, themselves, against us? I bet they’ll throw that back in our face a thousand times if we ever try to lecture them about human rights again. Or, for that matter, ask for our hostages back. (How is that going, by the way? Will we really let that go a full year? We’re nearly at half a year now.)
So we’re genociders.
The Justin Trudeau campaign in 2019 isn’t a patriotic campaign. It’s an anti-patriotic campaign.
He has never apologized for anything he’s done. Just for what we’ve done.
That's the new Liberal brand.
What has Trudeau done, but legalize drugs, and start a dozen diplomatic wars?
He's demonized us, he’s smeared us, he’s insulted us, he’s negated us.
It’s a psychological test, really: do we have the self-respect to walk away from this manipulator?
Or will we really fall for it again...?
