Canadian Parliament UNANIMOUSLY CONDEMNS Trump.

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/391780-canadian-parliament-condemns-trump-attacks-on-trudeau

Canada’s House of Commons on Monday unanimously condemned President Trump and his aides on for attacks targeting the country’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Lawmakers approved a motion that rejected “disparaging ad hominem statements by U.S. officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations,” Reuters reported.

The symbolic move came after Peter Navarro, the White House National Trade Council director said there is a “special place in hell” for any leader who engages in bad faith diplomacy with Trump.

...

Canadian lawmakers also approved a motion that supports the Canadian steel and aluminum industry that has been hit by Trump’s massive tariffs, Reuters reported.

“Stand up to hypocrisy. If you don't, the hypocrites will teach. Stand up to ignorance, because if you don't, the ignorant will run free to spread ignorance like a disease. Stand up for truth. If you don't, then there is no truth to your existence. If you don't stand up for all that is right, then understand that you are part of the reason why there is so much wrong in the world.”

4. Why It's Important


“Stand up to hypocrisy. If you don't, the hypocrites will teach. Stand up to ignorance, because if you don't, the ignorant will run free to spread ignorance like a disease. Stand up for truth. If you don't, then there is no truth to your existence. If you don't stand up for all that is right, then understand that you are part of the reason why there is so much wrong in the world.”

13. Does that include being consistently opposed

to dehumanizing people by calling them "animals"?

I find the first sentence to be a nice exhortation. The next two sentences make sense. And for decades, that's what we've had. The next is, again, a nice exhortative.

But the following one, "no truth", slips a logical gear. It presupposes that existence is to serve standing up for truth, and the only reason not to do so is to be complicit in it. There are many reasons for not standing up to hypocrisy and for not fighting for the truth.

The so-called "spiral of silence" is one that requires simple social pressure to accomplish huge hypocrisies. There are many more which are of greater consequence.

Personally, I rather assume this Kassem person fell for that particular problem. If you fight hypocrisy, you will have no peers and no friends, no readers. Unless they play games so that there's not "truth" but "my truth" or "your truth." Then she's already told everybody to take their equipment home from the game and disbanded the team.

40. What a deal. Trump is only welcome in dictatorships. The Republicans have finally triumphed.

It has been a long and hard fight to indoctrinate a significant portion of the population that the Democrats and anyone who opposes them are un-American, immoral enemies that must be vanquished. They are accomplishing what the communists have held as the most cherished dream.

A nation so divided that they will have victory without firing a shot. The Republcians are now the victims of their own success. Our government is virtually in a position of being unable to pass any effective legislation. They waged a war against Obama vowing to resist any attempt at compromise to bring him down. Every piece of legislation regardless of it merits and need was rejected out of hand if it could possibly be judged as favorable for Obama. America First has become an America whose president is not welcome in every one of the liberal democracies that have allied and united themselves against the communist regimes that are intent on our collective collapse. I have to hand it to Trump and his henchmen. They have succeeded in accomplishing what every dictators, from Hitler to Mao and Stalin have failed to do. Hopefully we awaken before it is far too late.

Canada is NOT allowed to disobey his commands or question him,or even make him feel bad - or else he'll make them pay for it. Just ask him.

Takes a unique person to be unanimously condemned.

Way to go, Spanky! Truly historic.

Maybe European Parliaments could second that motion.

7. Canadian Roots

Canada is so right when it comes to trump!

My family goes back to the 1600s in what became Canada. My grandmother never became a US citizen. Unfortunately my dad was born in the US so I can't have dual citizenship. I live near the Canadian border across the Detroit River from Windsor Ontario. I work with Canadians and they are great people!

He lied about the country where his business is based. He is truly an undocumented foreign agent in all of those countries. Kick his ass out and let him sell his tacky bullshit to NK and China.

He's being well lubricated/emolumented by vested interests in the Kremlin, Omaha, NY, etc.

Ivanka has the patents to COFFINS from China. Are we all potential customers? I have already made sure I will be cremated, unless Kim sends his "no longer threats" nukes here. The entire family is grifting faster than ever, making sure they get EVERYTHING before daddy is hauled off either to prison or insane asylum. The gop outdid themselves with this clown. All they saw was white, supposedly rich, know nothing, plenty of cash from Russia and they were all on board. They OWN this destruction.

21. The contrast between Trump's interaction with the Canadians and Obama's

Night and Day would be an understatement.

Deference, decency and decorum. That was Obama, and they loved hm for it.

Indifference, ignorance and impudence is what Trump offers them (and not just the Canadians).

what a difference having class and intelligence makes. A buffoon we have as potus now compared to President Obama could not be clearer. What a racist ameriKKKan backlash/culture the last election has shown the world. We have a potential agent of Russia as a potus, con man, sexual predator, family of grifters insulting every ally we have. Embracing other dictators like Kim, Duterte et al; whom he holds in high regard.

SAD INDEED.
