It’s Open Season for Harassment, Hate and Even Violence Against Russians!

Video from True North

"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used to talk a good game about protecting the Charter Rights of all Canadians – even when it’s unpopular. He threw those values out the window during Covid, when he suspended many charter rights and regularly scapegoated and dehumanized the unvaccinated. There’s a new category of people who have been “de-personed” in our society: Russians. Today on the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by National Post columnist Rupa Subramanya to discuss the recent attacks against Russians in the West and in some cases the lifting of their basic rights and protections. They also discuss the media climate where politicians like Trudeau and his deputy PM Chrystia Freeland face next to no scrutiny from the legacy media. Why don’t journalists question Freeland’s political activism in Ukraine? Is her role with the left-wing World Economic Forum a conflict of interest? Instead of investigating and asking tough questions of our leaders, too many legacy media journalists play defence for our leaders. Candice and Rupa discuss the negative impact this has on our democracy.' from video introduction.

"The war in Ukraine started only a week ago, and already we in the West are succumbing to anti-Russian hysteria that is both disgusting and frightening. I thought that most of us understood that it is possible to despise a government’s actions while not demonizing all the people of a country. I thought most of us in the enlightened West knew that collective guilt is a terrible thing.

I was wrong.

Look at this monstrous tweet from Obama’s ambassador to Moscow...from the article: The Hate-Russians Moral Panic

"As a U.S. diplomat who resigned from the U.S. government in 2003 in opposition to Bush’s war on Iraq, I hoped at the time that all Americans would not be vilified by the world for the actions of the Bush administration.

As hard as it might be for some, I plead that we not vilify Russians for the actions of their political leaders. I hope that we can be as generous to peace-seeking Russians as the world was to anti-war Americans.

I have visited Russia twice in the past six years and I know the Russians I spoke with, and I would guess that most Russians, do not want war and object to Putin’s war on Ukraine...

The Russian government has invaded Ukraine using the same pretext of national security that the U.S. used to invade Iraq 19 years ago in 2003..." from the article: Russians Say, Don’t Hate Us for What Our Leaders Have Done
