This is Christine Anderson. She is a member of the European Parliament. She is a member of the Alternative for Germany (AfD). She is a radical right extremist – anti -Moslem, anti-immigrant, Pro-Putin. During the Freedom Convoy situation Anderson called out Prime Minister Trudeau. Amongst other things such as saying Trudeau loved dictatorships, Anderson stated,

“Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy please spare us your presence,” 

\Anderson visited Canada, last week, and created quite a stir. Three Conservative MP’s met with her and had a photo taken with her. This resulted in cries of protest from Jewish groups and others concerned with her political leanings. Later, the three MP’s claimed that they did not know about her political beliefs and associations.

During her time in Canada, Anderson claimed to have previously met with Pierre Poilievre and said the following of him,

“I have spoken to him a couple of times. He seems to be a decent guy,” 

Poililievre, sensing trouble, denied that he had ever met with Anderson. Furthermore, to distance himself from her, Poilievre denounced Anderson.

“Frankly, it would be better if Anderson never visited Canada in the first place. She and her racist, hateful views are not welcome here,”\

That was the right thing to say. However, his denunciation did not sit well with some of his supporters. There are Twitter videos circulation where Poilievre supporters, or, rather, former supporters, voiced their anger. They called Poilievre a sell out, that he was showing his true colours and that he was just like every other politician. Be careful of the company you keep Mt. Poilievre. It has and will keep burning you.
