Trudeau smiled with soldiers while a hospital was being bombed

Justin Trudeau posed with Canadian soldiers in Latvia at the very moment reports surfaced that a children’s hospital in Ukraine had been bombed.

Trudeau’s vanity stop lasted about two hours, pulling nearly four-dozen soldiers from their posts.

Speaking to the Munich Security Conference on Wednesday, Trudeau said, “At its best, democracy is always stronger than authoritarianism.”

This comes just a few weeks after Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act to deal with a protest in his nation’s capital.

“But if we’re going to be honest with each other, democracy hasn’t exactly been at its best these past few years,” he continued. “Even as we’re fighting Putin’s invasion, we need to recommit ourselves to the work of strengthening our democracies.”

Trudeau left Munich directly to Latvia, where he got dressed up for his big photo shoot with the Canadian troops stationed there. Trudeau can be seen feeling disproportionately happier than the men who may be drawn into armed conflict at any moment.

Meanwhile, some reports suggest that Russian missiles obliterated a maternity ward in Ukraine with people still inside — though, given the recent amount of provably fake stories coming out of Ukraine, some skepticism is warranted.

The irony of Trudeau’s platitudes on democracy hardly needs to be pointed out. Trudeau is, of course, the first Prime Minister in Canada’s history to invoke the Emergencies Act, and his reasoning for doing so is unjustifiable: quashing peaceful demonstrators who were protesting two years of his medical tyranny.

Trudeau hasn’t only been at the forefront of suspending rights in Canada under the guise of healthcare. He also authorized banks to freeze the accounts of Canadians for as little as a $20 donation to a righteous cause, expanded the terrorist financing act to go after people’s cryptocurrency wallets, and used the auspice of confidence vote to ensure he retained his emergency powers longer than was even reasonable.

Moreover, Trudeau didn’t once talk with protesters, choosing instead to malign who he saw as a political threat as a “small, fringe minority” with “unacceptable views,” and calling anyone who disagreed with his pandemic policy a “racist” and “misogynist.”

The Freedom Convoy garnered global attention, with Trudeau’s authoritarian actions very much brought to the fore. In the aftermath, he has been left an international laughingstock — if he wasn’t already — the kind of politician who must sneak in through the back of Boris Johnson’s office because he’s met with protest even abroad.

He’s also earned the ire of several leaders on the international stage, with politicians outright saying he’s “acting just like a dictator” and abusing human rights or otherwise remaining silent. No one, not even his allies, condoned his actions during the Freedom Convoy protest.

Perhaps fortunately for Trudeau, the Freedom Convoy has since been overshadowed by the ongoing Russia-Ukraine Conflict, but Canadians haven’t forgotten. Most likely never will.
