IPolitics: Freeland at NAFTA 09/18
Chrystia Freeland: Bearded Lady
Chrystia Freeland is an inveterate liar and war-monger, and Justin Trudeau is her beard (beard: a person who diverts suspicion from someone).
With a federal election just months away, it's not surprising that former Conservative PM Stephen Harper has reappeared, but don't expect Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer to be any improvement over the current faux-Liberal situation.
It's bothered me that I've not been able to put my finger on exactly what it is about Freeland that so deeply rankles me. Sure, there's her love for and admiration of George Soros and there's that messy hair -- and especially the tic that makes her tuck it behind her ear every few seconds -- and there's the too-tight clothing (does she not own a full-length mirror?) but I'm not normally that superficial. I mean, except for Soros, most of that would be easily overlook-able in someone with redeeming qualities.
Redeeming qualities: like actually fulfilling her proper role as Minister of Foreign Affairs.
But her constant, show-offy arrogance and bellicosity reveal an abysmal lack of ability to do what I think her job ought to be: improving foreign relations; doing honest business with other countries.
Instead, our Prime Minister flits off to India and, garbed in native costume, exudes Gandhian peace, love and understanding, while our Foreign Affairs Minister busies herself irritating the heck out of potential business partners (not that I consider arms sales an honourable business, but she would, and she pokes the customer anyway).
Both seem to be playing artificial roles; Trudeau to demonstrate that he is a feminist and therefore a lover-not-a-fighter; Freeland to prove she can be as rough-and-tough as any man and still be womanly, motherly.
But I'm thinking that the PM and the FM really ought to study their job descriptions a little more closely and it now appears that I'm not the only one thinking it.
From The Times Colonist:
We North American Caucasians are not that far removed from our historic ill-treatment of humans that we were (still are?) inclined to think of as our inferiors. And if you ask people called "Blacks" and other people called "Natives" or "Aboriginals" to state honestly how they feel about the treatment they currently receive in the glorious Land of the Free, you might be convinced that nothing has changed but the cosmetics.
So, it's not surprising that there are still many among us who don't mind that certain other countries are being bombed to smithereens as long as we don't have to take in those pesky refugees.
Yet there stands Freeland for all to see, wrapping her arm around a young Saudi girl -- whose story of abuse we must take at face value -- and the girl returning that wrap as if the two were, well, mother and daughter.
See video at Canada.com:
Sounds too good to be true for a runaway teen, eh? Her only complaint, so far, is that it's cold here. But hey, she's got a bunch of friends to hang out with in Toronto, and that's every runaway's dream.
As far as I'm personally concerned, the girl is welcome to live here if here is where she wants to be. I feel compelled to ask, however: how many Canadian runaway teen-aged girls, however abusive and controlling their ultra-Christian parents are reported by them to be, would receive the personal attention and motherly care of the closest person to the elected leader of this country?
I challenge all of you teen runaways out there to hop on a bus to Parliament Hill and ask Chrystia Freeland -- who has clearly proven herself to be the ultimate feminist, both tough and motherly -- to give you a big hug and some money to pay for the bus trip and maybe some burgers and fries.
Unfortunately, Freeland strikes me as everything that's wrong with the modern concept of "feminism". And now I find I'm not alone in that concern:
From Consortium News:
That last part? The part about empathy and nurturing -- it's not an either-or thing. Men don't have to constantly make displays of empathy in the affected and cloying manner that Trudeau has demonstrated, nor do women need to prove that they can fight as dirty as the most "masculine" male leaders.
Jeepers: I'm suddenly recalling a woman at Queen's University, well over 30 years ago, saying to me: "Why not? Men have fought dirty since time began; so why can't we?"
After all this time, when do we just get to be humans? Just people who treat others honestly and with respect, instead of merely creating opportunities to demonstrate our own power and/or superior enlightenment?
