David Frum: Trudeau didn’t just defend the niqab. He defended the niqab by trivializing the Holocaust | National Post

I was looking for a link to David Frum's criticism of cartoonist Garry Trudeau's lecture at the George Polk awards on the Charie Hebdo massacre, but found this critique of another Trudeau: Justin, the liberal opposition leader in Canada. This Trudeau had made the bogus moral equivalence argument of Muslims being treated like German Jews in the 1930s.
Trudeau's analogy turned history upside-down. The European Jews who sought refuge in Canada in the 1930s and 1940s were fleeing an ideology that defined them as inferior and demanded they wear special identifying badges of inferiority.
Trudeau now urges Canada to enable and assist those who define women as inferior — and who require women to wear special identifying badges of their inferiority.
