Is  Justin Trudeau a Quisling? Or was Quisling a Trudeau?

Most nations and peoples have celebrated patriots and reviled traitors. There are always those who make sacrifices for their countrymen, and those who sacrifice their countrymen for their own gain. But no matter the nation, betraying one’s country is universally considered the most unpardonable sin that one can imagine. It is the most capital of capital crimes. Even in Canada, where sacrificing the nation on the altar of economic  growth, diversity and global integration has become public policy. 

 Mass immigration has become the weapon of traitors, and none have wielded it with more commitment and ruthlessness than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. To the delight of the immigration industry, in little more than 8 years the Trudeau government has added six million migrants to the population without having a mandate to do so. This in the midst of a housing crisis of epic proportions, a crumbling health care system and runaway  debt. Hyper-immigration has imposed a net fiscal burden exceeding $35 billion/year on taxpayers who struggle to pay the rent, fuel the car or put food on the table. It is as if Trudeau and his allies have deliberately set out to destroy the country, or re-colonize it beyond recognition. 

 This had led some critics to call Trudeau a Quisling. This, I would submit, is an insult to Quisling. 

Vidkun Quisling (1887-1945) was made notorious as Hitler’s puppet President of  Norway during the German occupation,  and such was his betrayal that his surname became synonymous with “traitor” in most post-war European languages. He was by nature  authoritarian, anti-democratic,  impatient with due process and conventional politics. He was many things. But there is one thing he was not. He was not Justin Trudeau. He did not quash a peaceful protest in the nation’s capital by jailing its leaders without trial for more than 700 days, confiscate their trucks, freeze their assets,  deny  their constitutional rights or plan to punish thought crimes by criminalizing speech that occurred years before his censorship bill becomes law. 

Quisling was unlike Trudeau in other ways as well. He was bright. He was a promising military cadet who rose to the rank of major in the Norwegian army. He devoted a considerable part of his life to public service. He served as Defence Minister in the Agrarian Party government between1931 and 1933,  before  forming his own party.  And above all, while Justin Trudeau is contemptuous of Old Stock Canadians and their legacy, Quisling had a deep appreciation of his nation’s past.  He did not refer to his country  as a “post national state” without a common core identity. He was not a globe trotting rootless cosmopolitan. Nor a drama teacher who simulated empathy by summoning tears when the occasion demanded it. 

The son of a Lutheran minister and well-known genealogist and part of one of the oldest families in Norway,  Quisling once remarked that “I grew up among Viking graves, between Bible history and old Saga tales… “l belong to an ancient family…Bjorson and Ibsen were of the same family as I…I have grown up under these conditions and imbibed a most intense love for my country.”

When arrested in 1945, he was living in a mansion called Gimli, the name in Norse mythology of a place where the survivors of Ragnorok (the Norse apocalypse) were to live. At his trial, Quisling looked back at how his work in Russia during famines of the early 1920’s had influenced his life: “Nasjonal Samling’s (Quisling’s ‘National Unity’ party) programme, which is not a copy of that of the Germans …was an attempt to reflect practical love for one’s neighbours…It is this I have laboured for.” I can’t be sure, but I don’t think Vidkun Quisling ever referred to vast swathes of his countrymen in the unflattering terms that Justin Trudeau did in late December of 2021. 

Nevertheless, Quisling’s treason was incontestable. He collaborated with Hitler. End of story. 

When the exiled social democratic government of Norway returned from London after the war, it dealt with Vidkun Quisling quickly. It tried him for high treason, restored the death penalty and executed him by firing squad. Done. If only traitors in other countries—not mentioning any names here—were dispatched so quickly.

In  their darker moments  a growing number of Canadians fantasize about Justin Trudeau suffering a similar fate. He has become arguably the most hated politician in modern Canadian history. Like Quisling, he willingly became the instrument of foreign interests and a  globalist  agenda. And with taxpayer dollars, he is the benefactor of a treasonous state broadcaster (the CBC), the ethno-cultural industry,  and  an array of private media outlets who push the government line. 

The verdict is clear. Justin Trudeau is a Quisling. More Quisling than Quisling was. And so are his partners in crime. I don’t you think you need  to be a mind reader to know what I would have in store for him. He would develop the same relationship that Benito Mussolini had with a lamppost in Milan near the end of the last war. And he’d have company.
