Canada's leading idiot defends his love for the deceased Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro:
“He certainly was a polarizing figure and there certainly were significant concerns around human rights,” Trudeau told reporters Sunday. “That’s something that I’m open about and highlighted, but on the passing of his death I expressed a statement that highlighted the deep connection between the people of Canada and the people of Cuba.”
Trudeau said he never shies away from raising human rights issues, including on his recent visit to Cuba.
“Canadians know that I always talk about human rights, including here yesterday, including with Raul Castro two weeks ago and wherever I go around the world,” he said.
Yeah, that excuse only works if everyone is as stupid as you are, Justin. There is a reason why everyone is making fun of you, especially Canadians.
Pierre Trudeau had an affinity for dictators. During the Second World War, he raced about with a German helmet on his head giving the Nazi salute.
These antics later evolved into full-fledged admiration for not only Castro, whom Trudeau visited in 1976 and got along famously, but also for the Chinese dictator, Mao Tse Tung, whom Trudeau gushed about while millions of Chinese starved to death.
Moving on to Justin's indifference to the human condition: he refused to call FGM and other misogynistic practices "barbaric", he openly admitted that he admired China, he offered parkas to Yazidi children who were forced to run into the desert to evade ISIS, he joked about the Russian incursion into Ukraine, he called prioritising for Yazidis, Iraqi Christians and other religious minorities targeted by ISIS for refugee status "disgusting", he withdrew from the fight against ISIS as soon as he was elected into office and he travels while unemployment and debt rise higher.
It would easy to assume that Trudeau is calculating and therefore lying to cover his ill thought-out condolences.
But no. He is regular run-of-the-mill stupid and believes that everyone else is, too.
Israel arrests twenty-two people in connection with wild fires:
Israeli police said Friday that at least 22 people were in custody on suspicion of starting a series of huge fires that has forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes and left widespread damage across the country.
China wants sanctions to work against North Korea the way a fly in a spider's web wants to be eaten:
… when called on its years of flagrant violations, China says it’s afraid that sanctions will work so well they’ll destabilize the regime in Pyongyang. Here’s a typical example of something you’ve read at least a hundred times:China fears that stricter measures against North Korea, such as cutting off provisions of oil and food, would lead to a humanitarian disaster with millions of refugees flocking across the border. The collapse of Kim’s government could also put soldiers from South Korea and its U.S. ally right on China’s border, a scenario Beijing’s leaders want to avoid. [Bloomberg]A premise of that view is that China would rather have a nuclear-armed, genocidal North Korea along its border than a democratic one friendly to the United States, which it views with intense hostility.
North Korea is a useful buffer state for China. One simply cannot buy that kind of help.
And now, is Nathaniel Hawthorne's daughter destined for sainthood?
In 2003, the Archdiocese of New York commissioned a tribunal to study her life and deeds, as well as her writings. A decade later, the Vatican received documents in favor of her canonization. Although it could take years for the Pope to decide if Mother Alphonsa will become a saint—among other hurdles, there must be proof she committed two miracles—her legacy of selflessness, generosity, and courage continues. Today, the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne operate three homes—Rosary Hill, Sacred Heart, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help—in New York, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, respectively. These homes offer free palliative nursing care for patients with incurable cancer, continuing the work that Mother Alphonsa began over a century ago.
