A Low Budget Remake Flops?

Justin Trudeau’s attempt to use police violence in Ottawa for a low budget remake of the Odessa Steps has flopped. He’s announced he is pulling the plug on the Emergencies Act.

The original Odessa Steps sequence is part of Serge Eisenstein’s propaganda masterpiece Battleship Potemkin. In the end, it appears that Trudeau’s propaganda efforts did more to expose the true nature of his Potemkin village government than anything else.

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Justin Trudeau has announced the following in response to Russian activity in Ukraine:

Canada and our allies will defend democracy. We are taking these actions today in a stand against authoritarianism.

The actions he is taking against authoritarianism include sending 460 soldiers, a frigate, and a patrol aircraft to Europe. Apparently, horse units will be retained at home for domestic authoritarian operations.

Politicians Acting Bad

So what did the Canadians think they were getting when the gave the Liberals a majority and allowed Trudeau to form a government?

He’s not the first person with the kind of ego needed to be a national-level politician who has felt entitled to take what he wants when he wants it. He won’t be the last.
