Just another empty (space) suit

Justin Trudeau, whose fanciful ruminations about government, the environment and the burden of being himself were the subject of my March 2007 cover story in the Western Standard, has now let his imagination roam into realms heretofore unexplored by conventional politicians.

In answer to a question posed to him by a reader of his blog, the annointed one declared that, if "non-Earth humanoids" decided to visit Canada, they should be protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

JT, call home.

This OUGHT to seal the Trudeau name forever to the dumpster of history. These people are living in a fantasy land! His father's crimes bore comparison to Pinochet for goodness sake, for invading Quebec to go after some "terrorists" (more like criminals) and robbing Alberta.

But NOOOO! He'll be the next Liebral leader and too many people will think he'll bring back 'the good ol' days'.

As Jimmy Kimmel would say, "How is this news?" He did not say he thinks aliens exist. He also did not say anthing about the Charter that is obviously false. So what's the big deal? Is the real issue here that his name is "Trudeau"? Good grief, Terry!

I'm splitting a gut!

Justin Warm-Fuzzy-****-for-Brains Trudeau saying extraterrestrials should be "protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms"?

PROTECTED???? What if they're not friendly? Of course, JT seems to be related to aliens, so he would assume they were friendly...

'Reminds me of the movie Mars Attacks, where the lib-left, we-love-everybody First Couple, played by Jack Nicholson and Annette Bening, welcome a space ship with marching bands, hordes of flag-waving children, and an exaltation of doves.

At first, everything seems to be going swimmingly, until one of the aliens lets loose a hail of bullets on the doves, who fall scorched to the ground, and then all the aliens start shooting everything in sight.

That's the kind of mess JT would get us into--and will if he's ever elected in Canada, aliens or no aliens.

Please, God, spare us another Trudeau.

If anyone but a Trudeau said this, they'd be dismissed as madmen.

If he is already colluding with enemies that don't even exist, what does this say about his attitude towards REAL enemies?

A Quisling extraordinaire.

I hate all alien non-Earth humanoids. I think they are scum and have nothing but contempt for them. They stink, their food stinks, they are ugly and nobody should hire them for any job.

There. I got it off my chest. Someone please file a human rights complaint against me for making statements likely to expose alien non-Earth huminoids to hatred or contempt.

Professor Lund - should I mail you my check for $5,000 now or later?

batb- Glenn Close was first lady on "Mars Attacks". Annette Bening was the showgirl who escaped with Tom Jones.

Do you think Master Trudeau has delusions that his late brother was snatched by aliens? Is it some sort of wishful thinking that he'll return someday with all the answers?

This comment by Liberal candidate Justine Trudeau shows me very clearly the man can not be trusted. He is saying he would not grant protection of the Charter to Extra Terrestrials when in fact he, his party, the NDP, and the Bloq won't even grant Charter protection to someone they can see, feel, and touch right in their midst. They have all declared that they will OPPOSE a bill (C-484)granting protection to the "wanted" human children of "willing" human mothers. They will deny Human children protection but offer it to ET!!! And they want us to trust them with our vote again. Give me a break.

I'll say this: a plan to grant civil rights to extra-terrestrials would be the least damaging thing a Trudeau could ever do; yet it would continue the long Trudeau tradition of completely empty ideas.

Posted by: Zebulon Pike | 2008-06-11 5:23:50 PM

dp, you're right!

It was Glenn Close. Annette Bening was the First Lady to Michael Douglas' President in a movie whose title I forget--unless it was The President?

'Hard to know what them Trudeaus are thinkin', ain't it? ;-)

What would aliens taste like though? That's the big question.

I didn't take from his statement that he wants to give extra-terrestrials rights under the Charter.

I took from this the hilarious idea that HE IS SO AFRAID TO OFFEND ANYBODY that he invents the next great politically-correct ethnic label, "non-Earth humanoids."

TOTALLY reminds me of that great scene from Star Trek VI where the Klingon Chancellor's daughter refers to the United Federation of Planets as a "homo-sapiens-only club", Vulcans notwithstanding.

Here's my question for young Mr. Trudeau - why the hell doesn't the charter apply to sentient non-earth non-humanoids?!?!?!?! Hell, even the word, "humanoid", can be construed as racist!!! Sentient beings from the planet Zalnork would not consider THEMSELVES humanoid, they'd be Zalnorkoid!

Trudeau, you Earthnocentric bigot!

When you read the news do you read all of the news or just skim for keywords?

In the context of all of the news I read Trudeau's words as a side-comment on the bigger story that's been unfolding for some time now: the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution applies to anyone in their custody, including combatants on foreign soil. Trudeau wasn't just randomly speculating about life in space, he was using hyperbole inside of a discussion around the reach of a nations' charters.
