Former Trudeau Secretary Gerald Butts went on a Twitter tantrum earlier today, apparently appalled that foreign politicians were able to criticize Trudeau over his violations of human rights.
“125k likes and 2.4 million views for a post by an AfD politician who rarely gets more than 50 or 60 shares. Totally normal,” Butts began, possibly jealous about Christine Anderson’s traction.
Butts wasn’t finished, though. In typical Liberal fashion, he proceeded to malign Anderson, labelling her a “right-wing extremist.” He, of course, also suggested there may be guilt-by-association for anyone sharing the wildly popular takedown of Trudeau.
“It’s amazing this stuff can still happen in 2022,” cried Butts. “Hey, knock yourself out. It’s a free country. But promoting a German right-wing extremist because she doesn’t like the politician you don’t like is not the win you think it is.”
The comments were, of course, turned off.
I called out Butts for his little tantrum on Twitter and got the expected response: blocked.
The video in question that Butts is so upset by shows German MEP Christine Anderson absolutely destroying Trudeau in the European Parliament during his trip to Brussels. She is one of six MEPs who openly condemned Trudeau for his horrific civil rights violations during the Freedom Convoy protests.
“Then again, a Prime Minister, who openly admires the Chinese “basic dictatorship, who tramples on fundamental rights by persecuting and criminalizing his own citizens as terrorists, just because they dared to stand up to his perverted concept of democracy, should not be allowed to speak in this house at all,” Anderson said.
“Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy! Please spare us your presence.”
Croatian MEP Mislav Kolakusic similarly slammed Trudeau the same day.
Addressing the European Parliament and Trudeau directly, Kolakusic said, “…. Canada, once a symbol of the modern world, has become a symbol of civil rights violations under your quasi-liberal boot in recent months. We watched how you trample women with horses, how you block the bank accounts of single parents so that they can’t even pay their children’s education and medicine, that they can’t pay utilities, mortgages for their homes.”
“To you,” he continues, speaking to Trudeau, “these may be liberal methods; for many citizens of the world, it is a dictatorship of the worst kind. Rest assured that the citizens of the world, united, can stop any regime that wants to destroy the freedom of citizens, either by bombs or harmful pharmaceutical products.”
Of course, the mainstream media barely noted this reception — the CBC actually claimed Trudeau got a standing ovation without mentioning most MEPs left in protest — but that’s why we exist. To bring you the stories Gerald Butts doesn’t want you to hear.
