WASHINGTON -- Former U.S. president Donald Trump is assailing Canada as a country of "left-wing fascists" for the way it cleared protesters out of Ottawa last weekend.

Trump's remarks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida marked the first time in nearly a month he's publicly acknowledged the protests.

He said protesters in Canada were "slandered" as Nazis, racists and terrorists, charged with what he called "phoney crimes" and accused of being loyal to foreign powers.

...

"The tyranny we have witnessed in Canada in recent weeks should shock and dismay people all over the world," he said to hoots and hollers from a sympathetic crowd in Orlando.

COMMENT:-

In a desperate bid to regain the love of Donald John Trump {BBHN}, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that Canada had invaded Uzbekistan in order to prevent it joining NATO. President Trump heartily applauded the invasion and wished the Canadian forces well in their quest to spread freedom to the whole world.​

He hasn't liked us since we took America's lunch money in NAFTA.
Tyranny? I'm used to simple-minded bottom-feeder far-right loons calling Trudeau a tyrant but really? The ex-POTUS?
His cultists just gobble up over-the-top hyperbole and crap out adoration of the immoral fraudulent con man who feeds them what they crave.

Flat out lie! Read the IG report please!

"He was able to do so because the crowd of protesters in Lafayette Square, which abuts the church, had been forcibly cleared by law enforcement in what some outlets referred to as an “attack” — officers from various law enforcement groups used horses, riot shields, batons, pepper spray, and tear gas to clear the area."

WRONG!! Again read the IG report!!

The U.S. Park Police did not clear protesters from a park outside the White House so then-President Donald Trump could take a photo-op at a nearby church, an Interior Department inspector general's report found.


"[T]he evidence established that relevant USPP officials had made those decisions and had begun implementing the operational plan several hours before they knew of a potential Presidential visit to the park, which occurred later that day," Interior Department Inspector General Mark Greenblatt wrote in a statement with the report's release Wednesday. "As such, we determined that the evidence did not support a finding that the USPP cleared the park on June 1, 2020, so that then President Trump could enter the park."

Notably, as lawyer Luppe Luppen highlighted on Twitter, the IG report indicates that Secret Service officers on the scene — who were aware of USPP’s operational plan — escalated the situation by using pepper spray against protesters, and by doing so before USPP officers had a chance to give demonstrators any warnings to disperse. The report says a Secret Service official later apologized to USPP officials for the incident, but didn’t explain why it happened.

Asking us to take the word of Trump's inspector general would be like asking us to take the word of Barr.

Did you mean to add this link?

The link to the source is in the source name.

The link to the article is in the headline.

Strangely enough, the link in the headline went to the article that I was citing.

You want us to ignore our lying eyes, eh? I bet you also believe the Jan 6th FAILED insurrection was made up of peaceful tourists too.

Gassing innocent protestors is cool as long as Trump does it.
I mean, besides his stupid photo op, why else did he go outside? Oh right, he went right back inside.

It has been tried.

Prior to the American Rebellion, the British American colonies that later became the United States of America had participated in attempts to conquer what later became Canada in "King William's War" (1688-97), "Queen Anne's War" (1710-3); "Father Rale's War" (1722–5), "King George's War" (1744-48), "Father Le Loutre's War" (1749-55), and the "French and Indian War" (1756-63).​
After the American Rebellion, the United States’ first foray into Canada occurred at the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, when colonial troops marched all the way to Quebec City before being repelled.​
By the time the War of 1812 rolled around almost four decades later, the so-called “war hawk” members of Congress were clamoring for a second go-around. There were even a few calls for part or all of Canada, then a British colony, to be annexed.​
For less serious attempts to "conquer Canada" you can also toss in "The Dickson Filibuster" of 1836, "The Patriot War" of 1837–8, "The Fenian Raids" of 1866–71, and (if you really want to talk about silly) "The Oka Crisis" of 1990.​
I guess that your American history classes didn't bother to mention those eight serious (and four frivolous) attempts by "Americans" to conquer Canada. You don't suppose that that would be because none of them succeeded, do you?
