Cognitive Dissonance and Our "Ironclad" Support for Israel
The Freeland-Trudeau team likes to go out of their way to pose as Trump-defying humanists, stalwarts of the international anti-Trump resistance. That’s a pose meant primarily for the domestic audience, where pretend resistance scores a lot of political points among great swathes of the populace.
In the real world, we’re 100% in with the Israel-KSA-USA axis of evil. How else to explain our dithering over our biggest arms sale ever? How else to explain Chrystia’s grovelling performance in Jerusalem last week?
The IDF turkey shoot at the Gaza fence continues week in and week out, with nary a peep from our dynamic duo on ”feminist foreign policy,” save for that one ill-advised slip of the tongue on Trudeau’s part back in May, when he accidentally misspoke about the need for an impartial inquiry into the IDF’s multiple murders of unarmed Palestinians. That brief outburst of sanity went missing immediately.
Maybe Kushner made a phone call.
No, we’re proud to offer our “unwavering and ironclad support” for the Trump-loving Likudniks who are systematically destroying the state of Israel and turning it into a loathsome apartheid pariah.
