“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door. And that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One.” – Trump trade adviser, Peter Navarro
“He (Trudeau) really kind of stabbed us in the back … (Trump is) not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around.” – Trump chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow
“I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do. Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.” – Justin Trudeau
“In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters.” – German Foreign Minister, Heiko Mass
In the wake of a disastrous G7 Summit in Quebec, the regime in Washington recklessly engages in quite possibly its most foolish and dangerous rhetoric to date. Canada has done nothing wrong, they are simply defending their interests against the insane policies of a madman, as any nation should. They did not ask for a lunatic to become President of the United States and to start an unnecessary trade war that nobody can possibly emerge from as a winner. Americans ought to be highly alarmed, but most either cannot be bothered to care, are incapable of understanding the gravity of the situation, or they are redneck blowhard who approve of Trump turning the U.S. into a predator, autocratic nation that is betraying its allies and is aligning itself with dictatorships. Years of conspiracy theories about a bogeyman ‘New World Order’ and years of falsely being told they were abused by their leaders have warped the minds and souls of millions, to which Trump is taking full advantage of.
No longer is it impossible to envision the United States leaving NATO, and taking up arms against our former allies alongside the likes of Russia and China. And when World War III comes, what a moral dilemma that is going to be for each of us – knowing our country is now one of the bad guys. ‘My country right or wrong?’ Ask any German about the value, or lack thereof, of that sentiment. No, for the U.S. as we knew it is rapidly ceasing to exist, morphing into a different monster altogether. For me personally, there is no dilemma, for this is highly personal. The nations being alienated by Trump are a part of me. My blood descends from northern Europe – Germany, the British Isles, Scandinavia, and possibly trace amounts from France. And most of my relatively recent ancestry comes via Prince Edward Island and the Canadian Maritimes. As much as I love America, I will not sell my soul if defending her means defending pure evil. When the moment of decision comes, I will stand with Canada and the Western allies who uphold the way of life we’ve always known and enjoyed, not with these Fascist goons who have hijacked and replaced my country with something straight out of the pits of Hades.
