Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Wore Islamic-Themed Socks To Gay Pride Parade

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave us the best example of liberal delusion over the weekend at Toronto’s gay Pride parade.

The leader of Canada, determined to represent every single identity group, did have a dilemma on his hands. The gay pride parade was on Sunday. The end of Ramadan, Islam’s holy month, was on Saturday. How do you stay “woke” with so much going on in one weekend?

Wear Ramadan-themed socks to the major LGBT event, of course.

Anyone who remotely keeps up with the news would understand the extreme irony in this action. Homosexuality is strongly condemned in Islam. In fact, many Muslim-majority countries outlaw LGBT activity or worse. Being gay is punishable by death in seven Muslim countries. In ISIS-controlled territory, people even suspected of being gay are thrown off buildings – survivors are subsequently stoned.

None of that seemed to matter to Trudeau. The leader of Canada’s Liberal Party has long held virtue signaling in high regard. Last year, he became the first sitting Canadian prime minster to attend the Pride parade.

He didn’t just stop with the inappropriate attire. While speaking to the media, Trudeau wished everyone a happy “Pride Mubarak,” a play on words for Pride day and the end of Ramadan.
