China’s response to Uyghur genocide declaration motion shows how much Trudeau has weakened Canada on the world stage

Trudeau made this easy for China, as they can simply point out that Canada’s leader has accused his own country of genocide while not accusing China of genocide.

China accusing a country of genocide in response to themselves being accused of genocide isn’t a big surprise. In fact, the tactic of accusing the accuser of what you’re being accused of is a staple of Communist States, as is the conflation of different issues.

For example, the Soviet Union would regularly criticize the US for racial disparities whenever the horrific treatment of the Soviet populace was brought up. The tactic isn’t so much about winning the argument, but about muddying the waters up enough so that everyone loses, which is nearly as good as a win for authoritarian states that regularly find themselves being condemned for how they treat people.

Yet, we have recently seen something new in that age-old tactic:
A country having the words of their own leader being used by an authoritarian state in an allegation of genocide.

You see, Justin Trudeau may be unwilling to even show up for a vote on China’s genocide against the Uyghurs, but he was more than willing to accuse Canada of genocide.

By doing so, he also implicitly accused the Canadian People of being part of that genocide, in effect condemning the country, and the government he led.
At the time, many felt that Trudeau made the declaration for political purposes, seeking a short-term benefit in the polls.

And now, that seems even more likely.

In response to overwhelming evidence of mass forced-sterilizations, mass rape, brainwashing, and the internment of over 1 million Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps, Justin Trudeau was unwilling to use the term genocide to refer to China’s actions, and he and the entire Liberal cabinet abstained from the vote.

Before the vote—which passed unanimously—Trudeau had already faced criticism for his hypocrisy on the use of the term genocide, and that hypocrisy has been gleefully exploited by China.

In their response, they included the following: "Instead, the Canadian side should ask itself when it comes to committing 'genocide' and reflect deeply on the miserable experience of its indigenous people."

Trudeau made this easy for China, as they can simply point out that Canada’s leader has accused his own country of genocide while not accusing China of genocide.

This goes to show how severely Trudeau has weakened Canada on the world stage, and how he has repeatedly shown a willingness to abandon Canada’s values in an effort to appease China.

Thankfully, MPs of all parties showed courage yesterday and demonstrated that regardless of Justin Trudeau, Canada still has strong core values, and still has people in leadership roles willing to stand up for those values.
