Thin skin: Trudeau cites smear campaign against Freeland in justifying banishment of Russian diplomats

Just-a-Nazi Trudeau's Nazi meltdown
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has linked the recent expulsion of four Russian diplomats to last year's alleged smear campaign directed against Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

He offered it up as evidence of attempts to interfere with democracy in Canada, but stopped short of directly accusing the individuals who have been ordered out of the country.

Also, Trudeau carefully chose not to accuse the government of President Vladimir Putin of orchestrating the sometimes virulent social media campaign against Freeland, which played off historical material that showed her maternal Ukrainian grandfather was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper in occupied Poland during the Second World War.

Instead, he pointed the finger at shadowy proxies.

"I think we can all remember the efforts by Russian propagandists to discredit our minister of Foreign Affairs in various ways through social media and sharing scurrilous stories about her," he said following a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg — who warned several Ottawa audiences Wednesday of the danger of Russian disinformation campaigns.

"There are multiple ways in which Russia uses cyber and social media propaganda to sway public opinion to try and push a pro-Russia narrative."  (more...)

So, is Christia a Nazi?

And, how about Daddy Trudeau?

One must NOT mention such things in polite company:
