Chrystia FreelandYouTube

(LifeSiteNews) – Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland hails from a family with professional ties to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party as well as infamous globalist oligarch George Soros.

In January, just as the Freedom Convoy was arriving in Ottawa, and as tensions between Russia and Ukraine were heating up, Freeland tweeted a letter of support for Ukraine.

In the letter, she stated, “Canadians — our own parents and grandparents — fought and died to establish a rules-based international order during and after the Second World War.”

While it is true that many Canadians come from ancestry where this would be the case, Freeland’s Ukrainian maternal grandfather, Michael Chomiak, was working to help the Nazis overthrow Europe.

This is not to say that Freeland is a Nazi or Nazi collaborator due to family lineage, but it is the case that she has obscured her family history on multiple occasions, and has portrayed her grandfather as some sort of liberal or democratic actor.

Jewish internet publication the Tablet catalogued the numerous times that Freeland spoke of her Ukrainian heritage while painting a picture of her grandfather as a political exile rather than a Nazi-aligned anti-semite.

Nazi political hero

In 2015, Freeland published a series of reflections about her Ukrainian heritage entitled My Ukraine for The Brookings Essay, where she stated the following: “My maternal grandparents fled western Ukraine after Hitler and Stalin signed their non-aggression pact in 1939. They never dared to go back, but they stayed in close touch with their brothers and sisters and their families, who remained behind.”

She continued, “For the rest of my grandparents’ lives, they saw themselves as political exiles with a responsibility to keep alive the idea of an independent Ukraine, which had last existed, briefly, during and after the chaos of the 1917 Russian Revolution. That dream persisted into the next generation, and in some cases the generation after that.”

In her portrayal of her grandfather she failed to admit or mention that he was editor of Krakivski Visti, a Nazi propaganda paper that operated out of Poland during the time of Nazi occupation.

She did, however, mention neo-nazis, but in the section of her lengthy series of essays entitled Putin’s Big Lie, where she opined, “Putin has depicted Ukrainians who cherish their independence and want to join Europe and embrace the Western democratic values it represents as, at best, pawns and dupes of NATO — or, at worst, neo-Nazis.”

In a 2015 piece from the Toronto Star that promoted Freeland as “Trudeau’s first star,” again Freeland mentioned her grandfather multiple times, but never stated he was a Nazi.

She is quoted as saying, “All my grandparents loved Canada, but my Ukrainian grandfather was the most passionate.”

The same article did mention the Nazis, but only in reference to the historical presence of where her family came from.

In 2016, she tweeted in a post that has since been deleted, “Thinking of my grandparents Mykhailo and Aleksandra Chomiak … They were forever grateful to Canada for giving them refuge and they worked hard to bring freedom and democracy to Ukraine.”

Russian disinformation

Eventually, in 2017, reports of Freeland’s Nazi family history began to surface in Russian and Polish media outlets, but Freeland claimed that it was nothing more than Russian disinformation.

Freeland told reporters, “American officials have publicly said, and even Angela Merkel has publicly said, that there were efforts on the Russian side to destabilize Western democracies, and I think it shouldn’t come as a surprise if these same efforts were used against Canada.”

However, the Canadian press finally caught on, and it was revealed in March 2017 that Freeland’s grandfather was working with the Nazis.

There is evidence, however, that Freeland was well aware of her grandfather’s Nazi collaboration.

In 1996, Freeland’s uncle wrote a paper outlining his father-in-law’s involvement with the Nazis, and in the first footnote he thanked his niece, Chrystia Freeland – who was at the time a journalist – for her editorial assistance.

Mom worked with Soros

Chrystia Freeland’s mother was a lawyer in Canada for many years, and eventually took on a role of working in Ukraine after the Soviet Union had fallen. She started a foundation called the Ukrainian Legal Foundation, which had the ostensible goal “to work for the establishment of the rule of law in Ukraine.”

The foundation established much of the legal framework in present-day Ukraine, including the first legal library and a law school.

The foundation was funded by billionaire and globalist George Soros, who admitted in the 1990s to having collaborated with the Nazis to outs Jews from their homes in Ukraine as a young man, and showed no visible remorse during an episode of 60 Minutes that has become famous.

There is no evidence that Chrystia Freeland herself is a Nazi or Nazi sympathizer, but Canadians have a right to know that the minister who co-opted the power of the banking system to punish Freedom Convoy participants earlier this year, comes from a family that has been politically active with some of the worst people on earth for decades.
