Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed Wednesday that Muslim parents who are fiercely opposed to their children being taught LGBTQ ideology in schools are just victims of "misinformation and disinformation" from the "far right" and "American right-wing."
Speaking to a Muslim parent in Calgary, Trudeau attempted to minimize the objections of Muslims and other people of faith to the LGBTQ lessons. "I’ve heard this concern many, many times and I know that it is a very real issue," Trudeau said in the eight minute exchange recorded on video and posted to Twitter.
The prime minister suggested the Muslim objections were based on "misinformation and disinformation" and the work of the "American right-wing."
"First of all, there is an awful lot of misinformation and disinformation out there. People on social media, particularly fuelled by the American right-wing, are spreading a lot of untruths about what’s actually in the provincial curriculums.
"Now if you look at the various curriculums, you’ll see that there is not what is being said out there about aggressive teaching or conversion of kids to being LGBT. That is something that is being weaponized by people who are not doing it because of their interest in supporting the Muslim community," Trudeau said.
Trudeau also acknowledged that the "Christian right" is also opposed to LGBTQ ideology.
"These are people on the far right who have consistently stood against Muslim rights and the Muslim community, but they are weaponizing the issue of LGBT, which is something that, yes, Islam has strong opinions on, the same way that the religious right in Canada, the Christian right, has strong opinions against as well.
Trudeau is clearly concerned that Muslims are increasingly alienated by his Liberal government’s gay pride policies that not even an Islamophobia czar can alleviate. He told the parent that it’s "like the world is going in the wrong direction. One thing we don’t need right now is for communities that are facing hatred [to] just start turning on each other." He said it causes "clashes of cultures."
But now Muslim mothers are telling Trudeau, "Leave our children alone" and to stop force-feeding their children with an LGBTQ agenda that is now focused on children having the right to change their genders without even having to tell their parents first.
In June, Muslims came to Trudeau's Langevin office on Wellington St. in Ottawa to demand an end to the LGBTQ indoctrination in schools and for the federal government to put the Canadian flags back on the front of the building where the Progress Pride flag, with rainbows and triangles, now flies.
They chanted, "Leave our kids alone" and "The Flag has to go."
An Edmonton teacher told students who objected to "Pride" month, "You don’t belong here."
