A disgusting and divisive comparison by Trudeau.
During yet another trip to the United States, Justin Trudeau made some horrendous comments while delivering a speech to graduates of New York University.
In an immense irony, Trudeau – one of the biggest pushers of identity politics – equated nationalism and identity politics as representing a ‘tribal mindset,’ despite the fact that uniting people around the idea of a country is far different than the divisive identity politics Trudeau advocates for.
Trudeau also told graduates, “As you go forward from this place, I would like you to make a point of reaching out to people whose beliefs and values differ from your own. I would like you to listen to them, to truly listen, and try to understand them, and find that common ground.”
Of course, those being stripped of funding under the Canada Summer Jobs program, or those who got called “neanderthals” by the Finance Minister (which Trudeau never addressed), are wondering why Trudeau doesn’t take his own advice when he’s in Canada.
But that wasn’t the worst thing he said.
Later in the speech, as reported by multiple news organizations, Trudeau compared climate change ‘deniers’ with those who support the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.
As reported by the CP, “Trudeau also says there are some points of view that will never be valid, including those who commit female genital mutilation and those who deny that climate change is real.”
Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale tweeted this about the speech:
“Trudeau says some things are obviously just true – female genital mutilation is wrong, human-caused climate change is real “no matter how much some folks want to deny it” – but people still need to engage with the views of people who disagree with their own.”

Why the hell would Trudeau compare those two things?
There is a huge difference between a difference of opinion on climate change, and supporting a horrific anti-women practice.
And furthermore, if Trudeau is such a big opponent of FGM, why did the Trudeau government almost remove condemnation of FGM from the New Citizenship Guide? Why did it take a massive backlash from Canadians and massive pressure from the Conservatives for the Trudeau Liberals to scrap the change?
Trudeau’s comparison is disgusting, disgraceful, and divisive. It’s a terrible irony that in a speech where he claims to be talking about fighting division, he is purposely seeking to demonize Canadians who oppose his climate plan and is trying to even further divide our already badly divided nation.
The Canadian people deserve far better than this.
