FERNANDO: Trudeau's Socialist War On Free Speech

Trudeau’s Socialist War On Free Speech: Bill C-11 Shows He Hates You

Canada’s government crushes our rights & freedoms in a mad grab for power and control.

By Spencer Fernando, Exclusive to the National Citizens Coalition


Neo-Communist politicians like Justin Trudeau, Jagmeet Singh, and their socialist colleagues often complain about political division and anger.

They complain about hatred supposedly directed towards them by the public.

The bought-off media often latches on to those criticisms, raising concerns about the increasing ire felt by many Canadians towards those in power.

Yet, the concern and criticism only seem to go one way.

We talk about how members of the public hate certain politicians, and how that is supposedly unacceptable.

But why don’t we talk about how many politicians demonstrate hate towards Canadians?

Isn’t that the bigger concern?

Isn’t the public supposed to have the right to despise politicians, and (stopping short of violence or threats of violence), heavily criticize those politicians?

In fact, didn’t we once think that an increasingly angry public was a sign that those in power should listen more, rather than just ram their agenda through even more aggressively?

How have things become so inverted that the more angry the public gets the more we see politicians as victims and blame the public for being angry?

I think it’s time to turn this conversation around.

It’s time to focus on the fact that censorship Bill C-11 and pending legislation like C-18 demonstrate the profound contempt and even hatred that politicians like Justin Trudeau have for you.

What do I mean by this?

Well, ask yourself this question:

If you forced another adult to consume what you felt they should consume, wouldn’t you be demonstrating your contempt for their right to make their own choices?

Wouldn’t you be demonstrating your contempt for their intelligence?

And if you forced another adult to pay you for the ‘service’ of restricting their access to information, and restricting their ability to freely express themselves, wouldn’t you be treating them as nothing more than a tool in your own quest for power and control?

And wouldn’t treating someone else as a tool – as disposable, as malleable – be a clear expression of your hatred towards them?

When you look at it this way, you can see how the power-hungry policies of politicians like Justin Trudeau are far more contemptuous and hateful than the Canadians who get angry at those in office.

The contempt and hatred is even more apparent when you realize that Trudeau and his ilk can’t even get the basic functions of government right, yet are spending their time trying to dictate what you can watch, read, and say.

Even before the public sector strike, government service quality was declining fast, yet we’re paying more and more taxes for those services. Our per capita income has been dropping, meaning our standard of living is now in decline. Tens of billions of dollars of potential investment in this country has been lost due to excessive regulations, high taxes, and the anti-energy agenda of socialists like Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh. Our military is in a state of near collapse, something we can ill afford in an increasingly dangerous world.

Amidst all of this, Trudeau’s obsession seems to be to control your ability to express yourself.

If that isn’t contempt, if that isn’t hatred, then those words have no meaning.

At a time when all government needs to do is step back and get out of the way to allow commerce, creativity, innovation, and prosperity to thrive online, they are instead doing everything they can to gain control over you and silence those who disagree with them.

They aren’t even stopping with Bill C-11. It’s just the beginning. They have Bill C-18 which could massively restrict our access to news online. And they have their so-called ‘Online Harms’ legislation, which will impose centralized government regulation on “lawful but offensive content.”

“Lawful but offensive.” That’s about as Orwellian and Communistic as it gets.

Deep down, politicians like Justin Trudeau know that they are looters. They expand government power to steal more and more wealth away from productive, hard-working Canadians. They steal freedom and creativity away from all of us, because they would rather have less wealth and less innovation in the country than have our nation thrive without their centralized planning and control.

It's a profoundly hateful attitude, and it’s an attitude that we must stand against and fight with everything we have. Our nation will only truly thrive and prosper when we show respect for Canadians as free individuals, not as tools in some Neo-Communist fantasy of unlimited control.
