I should really stop asking myself what bit of lunacy is coming next from the left.
Last week, the pro cannabis, socialism is really cool, hipster rag sheet, Rolling Stone published an article with the headline, ‘Why can’t Justin Trudeau be our President?” The writer, Stephen Rodrick, called Trudeau, ‘the free world’s best hope.’
Well, my dear pot head scribe, Mister/Monsieur/Comrade Trudeau was born in Canada, which is a foreign country. According to the US Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
I know we had a Muslim President who was born in Kenya, but we do have to obey our constitution sometimes.
Rolling Stone was practically choking on bong water over a world leader who looks like a Starbucks barista and has the political ideals of Jane Fonda, Barry Soetero, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and every Eurotrash prime minister from Sweden, all wrapped up in one bright, shiny package of Diversity is So…Cool Socialism.
Justin Trudeau would be a virtual nightmare as President of the United States. He is so far to the left, he makes Hellary Clinton look like the second coming of Jefferson Davis.
Trudeau embraces all of the whacky policies of the left and their globalist masters with a cool, hipster spin. He’s a Millennial favorite in the land of midnight hockey, hosers and Molsen Golden.
Trudeau believes in socialized medicine and proudly boasts about the Canadian health system, as if it was the second coming of the Mayo Clinic.
In actuality, Canada’s single payer system is an unmitigated nightmare with wait times that are not only inconvenient, but deadly to some citizens.
In 2013, Canadians, on average, faced a four and a half month wait for medically necessary treatment after referral by a general practitioner. In 2013, the average wait time for an MRI was over two months, while Canadians needing a CT scan waited for almost a month. In fact, the city of Pittsburgh has more MRI machines than the entire country of Canada.
This is the kind of big government hell that is Bernie Sanders’ Muscovite pipe dream.
Trudeau is also Pro Choice, aka, pro murder and fully supports taxing the 1 percent to fund free government sponsored abortions.
And, you can’t be a real liberal if you’re not Puffing the Magic Dragon. Trudeau favors legalizing pot use across Canada and was a staunch supporter of the Paris Climate Accords.
He also remarked to a reporter, “I am a feminist. I’m proud to be a feminist.”
I’m not Mr. Trudeau; because feminism, like the socialism you embrace so fervently is the death knell of Western Civilization.
His views on foreign policy can only be described as extremely reckless if not totally naïve.
During an interview about Canadian soldiers deployed to the Middle East, Trudeau envisioned the Canadian Army as sort of UNICEF ambassadors and the Maple Leaf Welcome Wagon handing out Ukuleles and lemonade. He stated, “I mean, the image of Canada, the way people look at you as ‘Oh, you’re Canadian’ – subtext ‘not American’ – ‘but you’re here to help, you’re not here for oil, you’re not here to tell us how to run our country.’ ”
Peace man, you dig?
On June 14, 2016, Trudeau refused to recognize ISIS’s atrocities as genocide, instead waiting for an official position from the UN Security Council. He switched his position once the UN Commission released its inquiry on Syria.
What does he think ISIS is doing in Syria, restoring Jeffersonian democracy as they burn people alive and execute people with rocket propelled grenade launchers?
Most recently, Trudeau has been hammered by the right and the center and everyone else with a brain, concerning his authorization of a reparations payment of 10.5 million Canadian dollars to Omar Khadr, a terrorist responsible for the deaths of American soldiers in a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan.
Trudeau’s reasoning: he felt sorry for Khadr, who was imprisoned in Gitmo as a teenager and then later repatriated back to Canada.
He stated, “The measure of a just society is not whether we stand up for people’s rights when it’s easy or popular to do so, it’s whether we recognize rights when it’s difficult.”
The only due process Khadr should have received was a .357 round into his cranium.
If that wasn’t enough to turn your stomach, Trudeau’s comments after hearing the news of Fidel Castro’s death will. He said that Castro was a “remarkable leader” and a “larger than life leader who served his people.” Castro was remarkable alright, a remarkable butcher and murderer, a villain responsible for the torture and deaths of tens of thousands of Cubans.
Of course this kind of overt Marxism is just what Rolling Stone loves. The magazine article concluded with a leftist cry in the wilderness, “His land races toward inclusion, while our nation builds walls and lusts for an era of vanilla homogeneity that ain’t coming back. At this moment, Justin Trudeau’s Canada looks like a beautiful place to ride out an American storm.”
What a bunch of hogwash.
Trudeau’s world is the liberal world, a fantasy land of unicorns and multi-colored rainbows where everyone gets along in harmony and sings Kumbaya.
Like all leftist leaders, Trudeau is a walking, talking 24/7 danger to his own country.
The thought of some political aberration creating an opportunity where this hipster clown could be the President of the United States is not only laughable, but frightening.
