For­eign pol­icy bi­ased against males

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Bishop lashes Lib­er­als over abor­tion pol­icy (July 11)

The hypocrisy of pos­ing as a demo­cratic PM while deny­ing democ­racy as ex­pressed by the PM re­gard­ing his gov­ern­ment’s for­eign aid com­mit­ment speaks for it­self.

In a nut­shell a democ­racy is free­dom and equal­ity. Trudeau’s five-year for­eign aid com­mit­ment is geared 95 per cent fem­i­nist in ben­e­fit­ting women and girls and five per cent else­where. By def­i­ni­tion the num­bers defy the con­di­tion of equal­ity, thus deny democ­racy. That is un­de­ni­able logic.

Trudeau de­nies that his for­eign aid com­mit­ment is based on ide­ol­ogy. The divvy­ing up ra­tio of 95 to 5 is a warped equal­ity ide­ol­ogy in con­flict with demo­cratic equal­ity. Trudeau’s un­der­stand­ing of ide­ol­ogy needs to be ques­tioned.

For­eign aid is fund­ing for hu­man­i­tar­ian aid and aimed to ben­e­fit the most vul­ner­a­ble of those in need re­gard­less of age and gen­der. Trudeau min­i­mizes and lessens the tribu­la­tion suf­fered by starv­ing chil­dren that are not fem­i­nine gen­der and that by ex­ten­sion is coun­ter­fac­tual of democ­racy. There­fore for Trudeau to laud his for­eign aid com­mit­ment as be­ing void of fem­i­nist ide­ol­ogy is po­lit­i­cally aimed to de­lude. The pol­i­tick­ing ob­vi­ous is in plain sight of why his first world fem­i­nism is be­ing craftily im­posed in third world for­eign aid pro­grams. Must be a sense of ap­pre­hen­sion of 2019 dis­tantly ap­proach­ing and his party’s run­ner-up sta­tus that needs a few per­cent­age points bol­ster­ing as ev­i­denced in Fo­rum Re­search polls. M.J.
