On last night’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, host Ezra Levant spoke to Rebel’s Chief reporter, Sheila Gunn Reid, about Justin Trudeau’s testimony on the last day of the Emergencies Act inquiry.
“Yeah, there was a lot of, I would suggest, ‘marijuana paranoia’ in Justin Trudeau’s testimony today, because he used the word ‘potential’ so many times that if you were playing a drinking game, you’d have been hammered by about 9:45 this morning,” Sheila joked.
“Because,” she continued, “There’s a potential for violence, there’s a potential for this, there’s a potential for that. There’s no such thing as potential in the Emergencies Act writing. That’s not what the standard is here, it’s does it rise to the CSIS definition of national security threat, and CSIS testified [that] it never did.”
Ezra then played a clip of Trudeau listing off various ‘threats of violence’ including bizarre claims such as protesters using children as human shields and weaponized vehicles.
“So,” said Ezra, “I don’t know if Justin Trudeau is selectively editing from his memory any countervailing facts. I think he hunts for a few things that allow him to say, ‘no no, I’m telling the truth here’ even though every single thing he listed there was either false, an exaggeration, or a ‘potential’... he has to do that to keep his sociopathic love of tyranny alive.”
He made the point that if there were an actual emergency, everyone would know it, and the story wouldn’t have to be spun and exaggerated by the Prime Minister, other government workers and mainstream media journalists.
