Way back in late March of 2023, President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met to speak and reaffirm the bond shared between the United States and Canada. However, Slow Joe Biden did his usual thing and made another verbal mistake while speaking about the northern border crisis and Canada stepping up to handle it.
Speaking on that, Biden hilariously said, “Today, I applaud China for stepping up. Excuse me, I applaud Canada.” It was an obvious mistake that he self-corrected, but it raised some concerns about Biden’s thought process while he was saying it. Though Canada is supposedly helping us shut down the northern border, the speech was still generally quite woke. PM Trudeau, for instance, cheered “diversity” in his opening remarks, saying:
“Joe, one thing that everybody has learned about you is that you’re a proud Irish American. You celebrate your roots, and that’s so important to do. Whether one’s a Bangladeshi American or Bolivian Canadian or any heritage, this diversity makes our countries and our communities stronger, better, and more resilient. And it’s good to be loud about it, too, because the diversity of our origins may not always be obvious on first glance. For instance, the Canadian Americans or American Canadians in our midst tonight. You don’t always know how someone will spell the word ‘color.'”
Then, shortly afterward, Trudeau went on to pat himself on the back for all the woke changes Canada has made after Joe’s 2016 warning about Trump being a bad orange m,an, saying:
“Joe, the last time you visited, it was a snowy night in December of 2016. You saw that changes were coming. You warned us of countries turning increasingly inward. You warned that progress was at stake. You saw how crucial strong leadership among liberal democracies was to be. And as your term as Vice President was coming to a close, you talked about how the world would start looking to Canada and to Canadians to stand strong in the face of disruption. Well, I want you to know that Canadians have been working really hard.
“Let me tell you about the progress we’ve been making. We forged ahead in the fight against climate change here at home and on the international stage. We’ve safeguarded reproductive rights in this country, providing funding for women’s health around the world. And we just recently launched a $10-a-day early learning and childcare plan that has already seen women’s participation in the Canadian workforce rise.
“We have walked the path of reconciliation. In July, the Pope came to Canada to apologize. Chief Wilton Littlechild — glad to see you here tonight, Willie — placed a feathered headdress on the pontiff in a profound gesture of forgiveness and reconciliation. We’ve provided a safe haven for refugees from Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Syria and welcomed people from around the world.
“We’ve tackled inequality. We’ve cut the poverty rate in Canada by more than half. And we’ve advocated internationally for the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals that will help build a global future that is fair, equal, and peaceful.
“Today, new threats to liberal democracy loom on the horizon, and we are united in our efforts to protect our countries and what we stand for. Canada and the U.S. are bolstering Ukraine’s defense against Putin’s illegal and unjustifiable invasion. We are steadfast security partners through NORAD and NATO and the Five Eyes alliances. We’re standing shoulder to shoulder in defense of our values and against authoritarianism.
“And we are working to fight climate change and create new opportunities for people in both of our countries. We are facing the future head on, eyes open, and with an unwavering belief that justice will always rise up and make — as one of your favorite poets, Seamus Heaney, said — “hope and history rhyme.” Through our work together, let us secure peace, secure opportunity, and secure a healthy future for generations to come.”
That “healthy future” must not include those who protest against the regime, as Trudeau took a tactic out of the playbook of the “authoritarianism” he claims to oppose and froze the bank accounts of the Canadian truckers that stood up to him over mandates. Biden, predictably, refrained from criticizing him for that.
