Physical attacks on police and journalists have no place in a secure and free society. When those attacks start to become normalized, those in power must speak out against the perpetrators, or violence will begin to spread.
That’s why Justin Trudeau’s refusal to speak out against the Antifa violence in Quebec City is huge failure of leadership on his part.
Any Prime Minister – particularly one with such a large social media following – could do a lot of good by being clear that there is zero tolerance for violence against the police and against members of the media.
After all, without law and order and without a free press, our society would cease to function.
This isn’t about taking a political position. If a far-right group had attacked police and journalists, it would be just as important for Trudeau to condemn them. In this case however, it’s simply a fact that it’s a far-left group that committed these acts of violence.
Refusing to condemn is tacit approval
Trudeau’s refusal to condemn the violent Antifa actions is a tacit approval of them. The longer Trudeau goes without condemning it, the more it seems he is okay with what happened – which is an unacceptable position for a Canadian “leader.”
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
That’s why I write.
