Trudeau blames ‘American right-wing’ for Muslim backlash against groomers

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s quest for scapegoats carried him across borders as he pushed back on the concerns Muslim parents had about gender ideology with an accusation against his American neighbors.

Increasingly, alphabet activists and their “allies” have found their agenda of indoctrination impeded by vocal members of the community working to expose the grooming of the next generation. This has especially been true of Muslims taking steps to preserve their religious beliefs, but when confronted at a mosque with concerns, Trudeau cried “misinformation” with a finger pointed at “the American right wing.”

Video posted to social media featured the prime minister at the Baitun Nur Mosque in Calgary, Alberta in conversation with a man who said, “I ask you, Mr. Prime Minister, please protect our culture, our belief, the sin that you are doing to them.”

“First of all,” Trudeau told him, “there is an awful lot of misinformation and disinformation out there — people on social media, particularly fueled by the American right-wing are spreading a lot of untruths about what’s actually in the provincial curriculum.”

Along with finding blame to the south, the prime minister distanced himself from what was being promoted in schools throughout his country as he faulted the provincial governments for having control over the curriculum.

Despite claims of “misinformation,” the man in discussion with Trudeau pointed to a specific example of an Edmonton teacher who had recently chastised Muslim students for endeavoring to avoid participating in Pride events at the Londonderry Junior High School.

“You are out to lunch if you think it’s acceptable to not show up because you think there’s Pride activities going on at school,” the teacher could be heard saying.

“It goes two ways. If you want to be respected for who you are, if you don’t want to suffer prejudice for your religion, your color of skin or whatever, then you better give it back to people who are different from you,” she continued. “That’s how it works.”

Trudeau contended that that teacher, who had been reprimanded for her remarks, was an outlier and worked to further demonize conservative values.

“If you look at the various curriculums you’ll see that there is not what is being said about aggressive teaching or conversion of kids to being LGBT. That is something that is being weaponized by people,” he claimed of “the far right who have consistently stood against Muslim rights.”

“But they are weaponizing the issue of LGBT, which is something that, yes, Islam has strong opinions on. The same way that the religious right in Canada, the Christian right, has strong opinions against as well. They are using those fears to drive a wedge between a government that will always stand up for all your rights,” Trudeau pushed. “Just like I will always stand up for the rights of LGBT kids, including if they’re LGBT Muslim kids…We’re going to defend your rights even when you disagree with us defending other people’s rights.”

The prime minister is not unique in his attempt to vilify those against groomers as MSNBC’s Jen Psaki had recently touted that narrative, calling it the “reemergence of a very old GOP playbook…playing to the fears of African Americans and the civil rights movement.”

“Now, decades later, the right wing is reviving that same playbook. This time, with Muslim Americans and trans people. Hear me out, here, the GOP is trying to recruit Muslim Americans, a community that makes up less than two percent of the U.S. population, against another tiny marginalized group of Americans, transgender people.”

Leftists have refused to acknowledge the disparity between transgenderism and devout faith, a point not overlooked by Mahmoud Mourra who had posted in part to social media, “We are Muslim parents, and he is careless about us or our feelings as of now, he wants our next generation and he wants to protect the Muslim LGBTQ Muslim kids, sadly he wants to protect our kids from us parents, as he claimed.”

“As Muslims, we must live in fear because of the right wings ideology, we must be united against another Canadian group, will all other minority groups regardless of what we believe, as he claims they are right wings and radical white extremists. Their prime minister delivered many soft threats,” Mourra continued parsing through Trudeau’s position, “and he showed his fear of us Canadian groups building bridges with each other because this move will make him lose power and control.”
