Trudeau Backs Down on the Emergencies Act & Francis Backs Down on Traditionis Custodes. What's the Connection to Being a Successful Tyrant?
Liberal Tyranny- The Wall Street Journal
Premier Jason Kenney took to Alberta’s legislature to continue his fight against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergencies Act, despite Trudeau’s announcement he would end its use.
Kenney introduced a motion Wednesday condemning the federal government’s move, saying governments and police already had the authority to deal with weeks-long illegal border blockades and the occupation of Ottawa by demonstrators.
Kenney said it didn’t matter that the
prime minister announced he would lift the act because it set a
dangerous precedent and amounted to “one of the most obvious overreaches
of government power in my lifetime.” - Calgary Journal [https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/covid-19-update-emergencies-act-to-be-revoked-trudeau-kenney-continues-attack-on-emergencies-act-alberta-numbers-trend-downward]
Trudeau backs down on the Emergencies Act, and Francis backs down on Traditionis Custodes. What's the connection?
If there is one principle sincerely held by the narcissistically unprincipled, it is that bad optics must be managed before all else.
To be successful, a tyrant must shield himself from being generally recognized as such.
So the EA is rescinded (for the time being) and the FSSP are "allowed" to go on doing what they exist in order to do . . .
... not because the two tyrants in question woke up one morning being reasonable for a change but because the recent severity of their abuses had inadvertently alerted too many reasonable people to the fundamental illegitimacy of the way in which their respective powers are being subverted.

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
