Black Lives Matter Calls Justin Trudeau A White Supremacist

Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau has been very welcoming of immigrants to Canada and he has gained loads of respect for it. But for "Black Lives Matter" he's a white supremacist terrorist.

In a YouTube video filmed over the weekend in downtown Toronto we can see Black Lives Matter co-founder Yusra Khogali condemning Trudeau for tweeting about Canada's acceptance of refugees but not following that up with policy.

Right after President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, Trudeau tweeted "To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada."

However, he didn't follow up on his statement with policy and it angered a few people.

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said Canada would not be increasing its refugee quotas, prompting criticism that Trudeau's words were opportunistic but ultimately empty.

At Saturday's protest against Trump's order attended by thousands, Khogali said, "What did Justin Trudeau say? He said he wanted to accept everyone who is not allowed into the US border to Canada," which was met by some cheers.

"Don't cheer," Khogali said. "We know what that is, we know what that manipulation is, it is what this country is founded on—erasure and silencing of the real history of this land. The genocide of Indigenous people, in which the state is founded on. The enslavement and genocide of black people, in which the state is founded on."

Khogali continued, "When Justin Trudeau says that he is a liar, he is a hypocrite, he is a white supremacist terrorist."

So, what do you think of Khogali's statement? Let me know in the comments section below or on Facebook.
