(LifeSiteNews) — The Office of the Prime Minister of Canada released a statement on Thursday saying that the Trudeau “successfully concluded his trip” to Europe. However, multiple European politicians called him out for what they viewed as gaslighting hypocrisy, and when he gave his main speech to the European Parliament, the room was mostly empty.
After Trudeau blasted the Freedom Convoy in his speech, Croatian Member of European Parliament (MEP) excoriated Trudeau as someone who “trample[s] … basic rights.”
Member of European Parliament & former judge @mislavkolakusic saying out loud – very loudly – what needs to be said & what people need to hear. A stain on Canada is what @JustinTrudeau is. And he has new company with @theJagmeetSingh. Tyrants of feather violate rights together. pic.twitter.com/9cCfDY7XtI

He said that Canada, which was “once a symbol of the modern world is under your [Trudeau’s] quasi-liberal leadership, and over past few months it has become a symbol of violating basic human rights and civic freedoms.”
He called Trudeau’s government a “dictatorship of the worst kind” and said that “regimes” which rule by “bombs or by harmful medicine” can be overcome by “united” citizens.
German MEP Christine Anderson joined Croatian MEP Mislav Kolakusic in the evisceration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday, calling the Canadian leader a “disgrace” with a “perverted concept of democracy.”

She said that Trudeau’s actions against the overwhelmingly peaceful Freedom Convoy protesters constituted “violations of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law.” Anderson implied that such actions are far from surprising, as Trudeau “openly admires the Chinese basic dictatorship.”
“[Trudeau] should not be allowed to speak in this house at all!” she added.
“Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy, please spare us your presence. Thank you,” concluded Anderson in her fiery speech, which was met with applause.
The calling out of Trudeau in the European Parliament follows in the footsteps of Irish Senator Sharon Keogan who called out Trudeau last month.
In late February, Sen. Sharon Keogan asked the Irish Parliament to condemn the authoritarian excesses of Justin Trudeau and his government in suppressing the convoy.

“Ranks of uniformed and armoured military figures stripped of their badges and ID tags converged on protesters, an officer on horseback trampled over a disabled woman,” she said. “It sounds like something you’d see from Russia, or actions which we’d condemn in Hungary or Poland, but instead it is happening in the supposed liberal democracy of Canada.”
