Remember the Huffington Post now known as the HuffPost? Don't be embarrassed if you have trouble recalling it since that publication has rapidly faded into obscurity in the past few years. However, it is interesting that its greatest legacy might be for an incredibly prophetic column written by one of few conservative-leaning columnists for the generally liberal HuffPost: "Why Canada Will Become a Dictatorship Under Trudeau."
So was that column written a few days or a few months ago? Nope. Amazingly it was written on December 12, 2014 before Justin Trudeau even became Prime Minister of Canada.
The Nostradamus of the Canadian politics was Daniel Dickin, who was labeled as a conservative on the column. His Trudeau prophecy that came all too true started with this long subtitle: "The leader of that party does what he wants, when he wants, and no one dares question him. Would a Prime Minister Trudeau arbitrarily whip the vote and outlaw certain moral questions? Could Prime Minister Trudeau be trusted to make decisions for the good of the country, not just for his personal self-worth? Would Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision? Let's hope we never have the opportunity to ask those questions."
Would a Prime Minister Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision? Well that is exactly what is happening in Ottawa right now as predicted by Dickin over seven years ago. His column provided even more prophetic details on the sad authoritarian career of Trudeau:
It's becoming clearer as the days of Trudeau's Liberals wear on: if elected Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau would turn Canada into a dictatorship.
This is the man who admitted he "admires China's basic dictatorship." It wasn't just a sarcastic comment - he seriously said that he admires the dictatorship because they can get things done quickly.
And it's becoming clearer that Trudeau not only admires the dictatorship -- he runs the Liberal Party like one too.
How else can one explain the police-enforced acclamation of Andrew Leslie as the Liberal candidate for Orleans? Even with hundreds of Liberals attending the meeting to show their support for another candidate (and former Trudeau leadership rival), it was clear from the beginning that Leslie was Trudeau's hand-picked favourite, and certainly wouldn't be stopped by pesky processes like "democracy."
Just the imagery of Trudeau's chosen candidate being selected with police intervention is scary. It shows that Trudeau doesn't just admire China's dictatorship -- he would practice one if he had the chance.
And Trudeau did practice dictatorship over the last few days by invoking the Emergencies Act which is to be used only in the most extreme of circumstances in order to suppress... peaceful protests (click "expand"):
The Liberal Party under Justin Trudeau has become a dictatorship. The leader of that party does what he wants, when he wants, and no one dares question him.
Now that we know that Trudeau runs his party like a dictatorship, we must ask ourselves: is there any indication he wouldn't do the same as the leader of Canada?
Would a Prime Minister Trudeau arbitrarily whip the vote and outlaw certain moral questions? Could Prime Minister Trudeau be trusted to make decisions for the good of the country, not just for his personal self-worth? Would Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision?
You are reading this seven years later as Prime Minister Trudeau has just called in the police to enforce his vision of decisions that are not good for the country.
