Conservative ad uses ISIL propaganda and anthem to expose Trudeau’s weak foreign policy.
Conservative ad uses ISIL propaganda and anthem to expose Trudeau’s weak foreign policy. (NP).
The Liberal leader said Wednesday he would scale back Canada’s military mission against the militant group, as well as re-establish diplomatic relations with Iran, drawing condemnation from Conservative ministers.
The Conservatives followed up their attacks on Thursday with a new attack ad that combines images of ISIL atrocities with clips of Trudeau’s interview to reiterate that he is “just not ready” to be prime minister.
The 45-second online spot opens with a series of images of ISIL fighters and their victims, taken from recent ISIL propaganda, while one of the group’s anthems “Saleel al-Sawarim” plays ominously in the background of the video. Included are a photo of several men being drowned in a cage and another of ISIL captives with explosive cords wrapped around their necks before being beheaded by the detonation.
The video then transitions to “Justin Trudeau’s response,” a number of clips taken from the Liberal leader’s Wednesday interview with the CBC’s Terry Milewski.
“Yes, we’d move away from the [bombing] mission,” Trudeau says in the clip.
“If you don’t want to bomb a group as ghastly as ISIS, when would you ever support real military action?” Milewski asks.
“Terry, that’s a nonsensical question,” Trudeau says before the screen fades to the now-familiar “just not ready” graphic.
Hmmm........Justine Trudeau .....A weak Canuck copy of Obama and certainly no copy of his father's guts.
