I just can’t even…
As we pivot to a new world of passionately demanding integrity from politicians, we should demand non-contradictory talk. Right?
We are being feasted with Orwell in BC and the USA, but now Trudeau is vaulting into the ring to show that yes, he too can speak in abject contradictions.
I don’t know how else to put it other than “Trudeau: the Walking, Contradicting, Double Speaking, Self-Oxymoron” because in this article [“Trudeau Says He ‘Misspoke’ When He Said Alberta Oilsands Must Be Phased Out“]
He backtracks on statements a few weeks ago about phasing out the toxic tarsands.
Clearly, the blowback was too great. So he says he misspoke. But then the article shows he Trudeau continued on to both say we’re keeping the tarsands, but they have to go.
It is truly a masterpiece of internal contradiction, doublespeak and any other synonym you can thesaurus-ize.
Pivoting to a new world of integrity means wagging the disapproving finger at politicians who think we’re so stupid that we will gobble up this yak.
Demand more. We deserve it!
Embrace your righteous outrage. Speaking out of both sides of your mouth is classic contempt.
