So it seems as if the PMO brainiacs have attempted to move GropeGate off the political radar by introducing an Attack Ford Gov strategy. The initial shot was fired by Trudeau when after he first met with Premier Doug Ford, explained to media how he had to spend “a little time explaining how the asylum-seeking system works and how our system is supposed to operate.” Oh and apparently Justin got it wrong.
Trudeau’s condescending attitude towards Ford was bad enough, but things really soured during the recent meeting between federal Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen and some of his provincial counterparts. This time we had a man (Minister Hussen) apparently taking offense to Ontario Minister of Children, Community and Social Services Lisa MacLeod’s “false language“ and refusal to sign the official communique by labeling her actions as “not Canadian” among other nasty phrases.
This provoked quite a Twitter backlash with the optics favouring Ms. MacLeod as Hussen was accused of bullying and mansplaining which are both no-nos in today’s current social environment. And by the way a recent poll appears to back up MacLeod’s concerns as to how the feds are handling the border issues.
However GropeGate did seem to disappear for a few days until Brian Lilley came up with this beauty which ties it all together: Justin Trudeau’s Liberals continue their fake feminist ways.
And so when Liberal male political types (including Butts) aggressively go after female opposition members both federally and provincially, they have to be called out for their hypocrisy as so-call feminists. Sure let’s debate the issues in a respectful manner but bashing and disrespecting women for political gain just isn’t going to cut it these days. And female Liberal MPs who either stay silent or openly support their male colleagues’ aggressive behaviours are just as guilty.
This could get interesting. ‘The situation is going to get worse’: Liberals pushed to come up with answers on asylum issue – National Post:
“The motion calls on Hussen to testify, for the committee to meet at least twice more this summer and that the study be concluded before Aug. 3. Rempel also wants provincial ministers to either testify or provide written submissions to the committee.
MacLeod said she’d happily oblige.”
And another great Brian Lilley column here: Trudeau’s Liberals worry about words, not the illegal border crossers.
