Wonder whether Toady Trudeau and Fascist Freeland will protest the "arbitrary" detention of this journalist

Press TV anchor Marzieh Hashemi jailed in US on unspecified charges

Want to see hypocrisy in action?  Listen to the silence of Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and his Fascist foreign minister Chrystia Freeland regarding the arrest and imprisonment of American-born journalist Marzieh Hashemi, who is a regular news presenter on Iran's National TV channel Press TV.

Hashemi was arrested without warning at the St. Louis Missouri airport when she attempted to enter her native land, The United States of America, to visit her sick brother.  No reason for her arrest has been given and no charges have been laid to date.

Trudeau and Freeland recently spoke out loudly protesting the death sentence given to the convicted Canadian drug dealer by China...but where is their outrage about this respected journalist being arrested without having committed any crime????!  Hashemi is held in the highest regard throughout the world for her courage, professionalism and outspoken truthfulness.  Now she sits in an American jail.

This is a brazen attack on the principle of free speech which is the bedrock of democracy.  Where are all the demagogues and all the whited sepulchre politicians?????
