Trudeau's government gives Nazi 'hero' standing ovation.
Canada's House of Commons gave a STANDING OVATION to former Nazi yesterday in a bizarre display of support for the former SS soldier. Yaroslav Hunka, 98, who now lives in Canada was called a 'hero' by the Speaker of the house, going on to thank him on behalf of all Canadians.
The speaker of Canada's House of Commons, Anthony Rota, had invited his fellow MPs to give a standing ovation to Yaroslav Hunks, 98, following Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zalensky's address to the parliament on Friday.
Yaroslav Hunks was a Nazi, fighting for the 14th division of the Waffen SS, group under the direct control of Adolf Hitler. The 14th Division was known to have taken part in committing massacres against Jews, Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, and Soviet Partisans during World War 2.
That fact that Russia was part of the Allied forces fighting against Naziism in WW2 appears to have either escaped their attention, in which case this is a stunning victory for stupidity, or Canada has now fully transitioned to a totalitarian state.
Update: The Canadian speaker of the House of Commons has issued an apology after he asked the entire Parliament to give a standing ovation last week to a 98 year old Nazi Waffen-SS soldier in the presence of the visiting Ukrainian President Zelensky.
Anthony Rota issued the apology Sunday, claiming that the decision to honor Yaroslav Hunka, a Ukrainian who fought with 14th “Galicia” division of the Waffen-SS in the Second World War, was entirely down to him.
