Every Conservative Politician Defending The Racist Trudeau Heckler
A video of Diane Blain heckling Justin Trudeau at an event in Quebec has gone viral (for a variety of reasons), though it appears the whole thing was staged by radical right-wing groups.
Blain is connected to online far-right groups, and was last in the news for refusing to be served by a Muslim woman at a dental centre in 2015.
In spite of this, Conservative politicians are lining up to defend Blain and amplify her anti-immigrant message.
