Justin Trudeau, Nazi

Honk honk.

A couple days ago Rat Bastard 2.0 inexplicably outed himself as a Nazi. I know, I know, dust off your old jokes: "people told me if I voted for Maxime Bernier Canada would descend into tyranny...and they were right".

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine:

“Canada condemns in the strongest possible terms Russia’s egregious attack on Ukraine. These unprovoked actions are a clear further violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. They are also in violation of Russia’s obligations under international law and the Charter of the United Nations.

“Canada calls on Russia to immediately cease all hostile and provocative actions against Ukraine and withdraw all military and proxy forces from the country. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected and the Ukrainian people must be free to determine their own future.
Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, proudly defending neo-Nazis. 

He's on the same side as literal Nazis waving swastikas. Isn't that disgusting?

Okay some of you look a little confused. Let's explain.

Have you ever heard of an outfit called the Azov Battalion? In fairness I hadn't, but I'm not up to date on my niche military branches of foreign governments. Anyways, they're a wholly deputized wing of the Ukranian military who is also apparently dedicated (as you might guess) to something called the "Azov movement". That movement is an explicitly "Bajor for Bajorans" sort of group, and since ethnic Ukrainians are white then it is also dedicated to preserving Ukraine for white Ukrainians. This is, indeed, one of the "neo Nazi groups" that Putin has apparently invaded to root out. (Why a group advocating for Ukraine belonging to whites is worse than a group advocating for Canada belonging to Red Indians is an exercise left to the reader, at least for today). All you have to know is that Azov Battalion thinks white people are better than others, or at minimum better to live in Ukraine than somebody else.

The Azov Battalion is fighting alongside their fellow Ukranians against the Russians, and Trudeau implicitly praised them in his statement. Oh, and one other interesting piece of information: here's a photo of the Azov Battalion posing under their organization's flag:

It's not in exactly the same dimensions and orientation as the one you might be familiar with, but your eyes aren't deceiving you: that's a swastika.

It's worth a brief reprieve to note that the swastika wasn't exactly something Adolph sketched out one afternoon: to be frank, he wasn't that good of an artist. 7,000 year old swastikas have been uncovered in Iran and India. As it happens, the world's oldest swastika was found in Ukraine and seems to be a stylized bird (similar to how the Azoz Battalion's swastika looks a lot like the ship from Firefly). If you remember Don Cherry going to Nagano Olympics in 1994 he noted that swastikas were flying from flags all over the place. A swastika itself isn't ipso facto proof of a reference to Nazi Germany. Finland only in the last half-decade removed the swastika from their air force emblem: it had been used for just under a century starting in 1918. So seeing a swastika doesn't immediately mean Nazi. Indeed it's an open topic of discussion whether the emblem is related to the Nazi swastika: remember Ukraine has a dozen millennia of history with the symbol. Facebook, it's worth noting, banned Azov as a "hateful" organization you can't promote on their platform...until today.

Putin disagrees, and wants to purge Nazis from the Ukrainian government and military. Yet Justin opposes this. Now you might think: what's the big deal? For that answer, we have to look to the annals of history, a deep forgotten time (for leftists, at least): three weeks ago.

We recently have it on good authority by Justin Trudeau himself that if anybody in a group of people has a single swastika (even if only one guy three blocks away from everybody except Liberal Party official photographer Adam Scott) then the entire group is invalidated, and any politician who supports that group or their aims is standing with them.

There is no wiggle room. At no point did the Shiny Pony suggest that fighting for the same things the Freedom Convoy advocated for and supporting their movement for change could be decoupled from  "hate symbols" being seen. Indeed its why he refused to even meet with organizers (who hadn't waved any Nazi flags) or the regular truckers in the convoy (who were waving Canadian flags). See a swastika flag = hateful to support them. Plain and simple. So...

When will Justin Trudeau apologize for standing with people who wave swastikas?

These are your new rules, you play by them.
