A Jewish author and columnist has savaged Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for calling unvaccinated Canadians “racists” and “extremists.”
Diane Bederman, who is Canadian-born, made the comments in a column republished by the New York Orthodox Jewish outlet JewishPress.
“Here is Justin Trudeau, a sanctimonious, self-serving, self-righteous, inept, unethical, immoral and corrupt man, who can now add evil to the list,” writes Bederman.
“Here we are in 2022 and our leaders are scapegoating the non-vaccinated, blaming them for the continuation of the pandemic,” she wrote. ”Like other evil leaders, they divide rather than unite. They promote fear rather than courage and strength. Pit one group against another.”
In September, Trudeau was interviewed by the French-language program La semaine des 4 Julie in which he called the millions of unvaccinated Canadian men, women and children a number of derogatory terms.
“They are extremists who don’t believe in science, they’re often misogynists, also often racists. It’s a small group that muscles in, and we have to make a choice in terms of leaders, in terms of the country. Do we tolerate these people?” said the Canadian prime minister.
Throughout her opinion piece, Bederman made several comparisons between Trudeau’s remarks and the rhetoric of 1930’s Germany.
