RDP: Bastion

cropped-ragtag-header

Rarely do I talk politics but todays prompt ‘bastion’ brings to mind our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is the bastion of Canadian values these days. We are known for our polite and possibly ‘meek’ nature which can be seen as weak by macho, aggressive alpha dogs.

Donald Trump, I’m sure, perceived Trudeau this way but is now having a hissy fit because he’s not getting his way. He has to insult Trudeau (or Justin as he calls him; to be extra patronizing) by calling him weak and dishonest.  The U.S. economic adviser called him ‘two-faced’.

Trudeau does not succumb to name calling and insults. He doesn’t call him Donald or mention how stupid and arrogant he is. He stands firm in trying to implement better changes for everyone in the world, including those whose voices are never heard.

Most of the G7’s collected billions of dollars to educate the world’s poorest girls; America and France declined to contribute.   https://globalnews.ca/news/4264640/g7-girls-fund-education-school/

The summit opened with a meeting on gender equality; Trump showed up late. Trudeau describes himself as a feminist and is a bastion of gender equality. We’ve all heard Donald’s views on women.

I’m old enough to remember his father being Prime Minister. He was flamboyant and free thinking, way ahead of his time. But when terrorists from Quebec known as the FLQ, French-Canadian separatists, kidnapped a Cabinet member and murdered him, Trudeau reacted swiftly with martial law. People were astounded that this ‘hippy’ peacenik Prime Minister would bring in the army. “Just watch me”, he said.

When someone is truly strong they don’t have to put on a big show to prove it. Now all the eyes of the world on two crazy, blustering cocks who could potentially destroy the planet.  What could possibly go wrong?

  1. Like a great many Americans, I am horrified at Trump’s treatment of Trudeau. His disdain for most anything and everyone is embarrassing. I find Trudeau the younger inspiring and he gives me hope, and I too, am old enough to recall his father’s days in office. Apologies to Canada for the insults of our hideous leader.

  2. Well, if you believe some of the spin here (and you’d be foolish to believe anything from the Trumpkins), insulting Trudeau and Canada was just a ploy to impress that pillar of the international community from N. Korea. Yeah, what could possibly go wrong? Meanwhile, I also read that it kinda gave Canada a Kumbaya-moment where liberals embraced conservatives in a show of Canadian solidarity. You’re welcome? :::goes off to practice a Swedish accent so I have plausible deniability for a few more years:::
