Intended target of Trudeau’s tantrum was a man — and nobody is talking about HIM

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Everyone is talking about how Justin Trudeau elbowed NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau, including me. I can’t help it. What happened in the House of Commons is like nothing I have ever seen before.

Trudeau marched Terminator style across the floor and grabbed the Conservative Party Whip, Gord Brown by the arm. Trudeau then dragged Brown away from where he was, back to his seat. In the same melee, NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau was struck in the chest by Trudeau. Trudeau had this unprecedented tantrum because a vote wasn't happening as quickly as His Highness would have liked.

What’s my favourite virtue? Self control.

Many people, normal decent ones, are outraged that Brosseau was hurt and shaken so badly that she had to leave the chamber and miss the subsequent vote. Rightfully so. What happened to her was absolutely the fault of Trudeau’s bad behaviour.

But what should really outrage us is that Trudeau grabbed and dragged Conservative Whip Gord Brown. And it’s bothering me that it’s not really bothering anyone. Gord Brown was the intentional victim. The intended target of Trudeau's physical outburst and tantrum was Gord Brown. But that assault is being significantly downplayed because Gord Brown is a man.

Trudeau didn't just intervene and he didn't just make physical contact, although that’s the way he explained it all in his mealy mouthed apology before Parliament. Trudeau tried to use brute force to get another person to do what he wanted, against their will. Gord Brown did not ask for Trudeau to help him to his seat and he did not want any help. In fact, Gord Brown says he told Trudeau to let him go. But since Gord Brown is a man, everyone is focused on Ruth Ellen Brosseau and her sternum.

What I do know is that if Gord Brown had been interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose, if Trudeau had stormed out of his seat with the intent to manhandle and drag a woman against her will, to use muscle to make a woman comply to his tantrum, we might be seeing a resignation today. The feminist lobby would have demanded their pound of flesh and gotten it.

Instead Canadians are getting the kind of insincere apology performance we might see in a high school musical. Because Gord Brown is a man.

THIS seems hopeless – so the only alternative is to separate the WEST from the EAST-
nothing else will shake them up !

Had the dictraitor grabbed Rona Ambrose? The Socialist Media would be falling all over themselves in full defence of the unqualified Trudope!

One of the best pieces of advice that I ever received from a boss was, that if you are angry, go home and sleep on it, and in the morning you will see things differently. And he’s been right every time. Gord Brown is wise to wait and see what happens. The evidence is still public record, and the liberals can’t just sweep this under the carpet, and make it go away quite as fast as they’d like to. The public have taken notice, and I think Junior is going to try and have the camera’s removed from parliament in the future.

Thats pretty funny. It needs to be outed as a lie though. All the more reason Gord Brown needs to be in front of a mic.

According to some moron posting on the CBC forum apparently Mr. Brown had given Trudeau a nod of appreciation after he grabbed him by the arm and hauled him off like a nanny would a disobedient child. Then apparently Justin gave him a loving pat on the back before walking back to his seat. LOL! Liberal spin is hilarious. Stupid, but hilarious!

Gord Brown should have grabbed junior by the ear and twisted it until he cried Uncle!
commented 2016-05-20 14:36:30 -0400
Liza Rosie, to be fair to Gord Brown, he obviously wasn’t expecting the Canadian PM to suddenly rush towards him and grab him like that. The reason he let himself be led away by the arm was likely because of surprise which delayed his reaction, but he did tell Trudeau to get his hands off of him after he regained his composure. Hopefully he will elaborate on the incident once the dust settles a little, and not allow it to be swept under the rug like the Liberals want. He should press charges, and even though they likely won’t get anywhere, it’ll cause at least a semi-permanent stain on Justin’s reputation.

Peter Netterville – if we had a free press that was doing the job that they are paid to do, junior never would have been elected.

Gord Brown should stay quiet until the committee decides whether or not to spank Trudeau. Then Brown can be the one to introduce a non-confidence motion. Of course the Liberals would use their majority to defeat any such motion, but it would be a shot heard around the world.

Great take on this affair, Sheila, with several great points that I have been thinking since I first saw the video, and even moreso after I saw the NDP caucus’s overreaction with their over-the-top staged wounded warrior stunt yesterday morning.
If I were to aggressively and antagonistically walk into a group of co-workers to grab another co-worker and attempt to pull him away, and the co-worker I grabbed filed a complaint with HR, I would be summarily and with no recourse fired, if that type of video evidence were available. Rightly so. If said co-worker wanted to take it even further and actually file an assault charge with the police, I am not sure I could afford, or even find, an attorney team that would be able to get me acquitted, again based on the video evidence. And all of this would happen even if the subsequent elbow jostle, however unintentional, that appears to occur as Gordon Brown pulls away slightly from Trudeau’s contact, never occurred.
The only reason this is not happening is that, so far, Mr. Brown wants to at least appear to be above using that kind of cheap tactic. I have yet to decide whether I hope he keeps it that way, or chooses the other path just for the entertainment value that would be involved in watching to see if the same rules that apply to the rest of us would be ignored and how the mainstream media would spin that.

Same with the Alberta NDP. They also seem to be able to get away with anything they want unchallenged.

Same with the Ontario Liberals. hey also seem to be able to get away with anything they want unchallenged.

The frustration is piling up in me.

Bill said, "As we post, this minute, a house committee is deciding whether to invoke a charge of contempt of Parliament on Tru-d’ho – something which extracts a punishment like being tossed for a day or two, to reflect on his actions. "

That may be so, but we all know that it will never happen. Trudeau will not be punished. And the CBC and the rest of the MSM will post their “nothing to see here, move along now” articles, and the whole thing will be covered over.

Bill Elder…..I have a pretty good idea where he would go to reflect!
commented 2016-05-20 12:30:21 -0400
I wish we could toss Justin for more than a day or two.
commented 2016-05-20 12:27:36 -0400
I see what you are saying Hyacinth, but it is no excuse for not telling your side of things or not expressing the opposing opinion. The Conservatives, NDP, Greens, media, political commentators all need to have their say. Stupid just looks stupid and eventually as the infantile ’incidences’pile up and the misguided policies fail, even the most ardent Justin butt kissers will start seeing him for what he really is. Let the Liberals mock us. We’ll see who has the last laugh.

While I think focus on the NDP MP who was accidentially injured is appropriate, I fail to see why the incident with the Conservative MP who was manhandled (assaulted by Parliamentary definitions) is not being given the seriousness it deserves. That is why I think Gord Brown should speak out. I sure would if I were him. The vid of him being grabbed and led wasn’t a very good look for him, or Conservatives as a party. Grabbed and led with no visible action of defence. No pulling away, nothing.

It is said that there is honour amongst thieves meaning that there is professional courtesy amongst thieves and they would do nothing to harm each other.
In the case of the Cuban terrorist El Bow, he has shown no courtesy for his fellow thieves.
In the mafia, he would be sent to swim with the fishes wearing cement overshoes . . . that may still happen if he continues acting like the spoiled tin-pot dictator that he is.
We can only hope!

Liza,
I don’t think it would be a good idea to have Gord Brown make a comment about the incident. They (MSM and the Liberal Party) would probably turn it into “playing the victim card” and attack him verbally. Give you an example. Pierre Trudeau told an MP to f—- off, two MPs publically denounced his behavior, CBC made a joke of it and F—- off became fuddle duddle and the conservatives were mocked incessantly until the matter was forgotten over time.

Fuddle Duddle as coined by Pierre Trudeau

Formal charges for assault should be laid. If Justin were an honorable man he would step down as PM. But we know neither will happen.

Very good point Sheila.
I’d like to hear from Gord Brown.

What bothers me the most is that the cuckolded “Man”, that bully Trudeau grabbed, is given no quarter in the media. Men don’t count and especially conservative men. Unfortunately he was caught off guard and maybe he didn’t have a chance to kick Trudeau in the nuts. I will give him the benefit of the doubt

The focus is on the Female MP. Yet we are supposed to believe that men are equal to women. I call BS! She is playing the victim. The Damsel in Distress. Feminists, like Lefty NDP leader Mulcair come to her aid, spouting chivalrous crap. If he would have decked Trudeau, I might have a little more respect for him. But Mulcair, please don’t get all uppity protecting a woman when your own BS ideology disagrees with you.

Great stuff Sheila!

I beg to differ Sheila. If it was a conservative woman there still would have be crickets. The only reason there was a stir was because it was not a conservative that was hurt but rather an NDP MP. For years, decades, the continual and constant theme has been LIBERALS ALWAYS lie about and attack conservatives. NDP is not on the agenda of attack nor ever truly has been because the NDP have never been perceived as a true threat to the Liberals’ insane yet steadfast belief that they are the one and only natural governing party of Canada. Think of the attempted coalition as a prime example, then as now the Liberals’ arrogance was shocking yet candy-coated and even justified by MSM. Think back to when Junior was just an MP, his foul attitude and potty mouth was very apparent yet brushed off as inexperience or over enthusiasm by MSM. It has been this way as long as I can remember, from Daddy Dearest Pierre Trudeau (1960s) to Junior (2016). Provincially its no different, the Liberals even involved the OPP union in attacking Hudak in the Ontario election. Such class – NOT.

It looks like somebody had to hold back mulcair from el bow

There’s lots of things you can do to be a better feminist as a man, but here’s a simple one: don’t elbow them in the boobs.

That was a good point about Trudeau~ grabbing a man ~ with no consequences. Consider the political and legal future for an opposing MP if he grabbed Trudeau the same way. It would be over with for that politican.
commented 2016-05-19 21:32:49 -0400
Yeah I was thinking about that too. Everyone is focusing on the lady even though it was the man who got grabbed and dragged away by Trudeau. It looks like he gave him a little push too before returning to his seat. I think the reason the focus is on the elbowing incident is so the Liberals and mainstream media can trivialize the whole situation since what Trudeau did to the female MP was an accident while he intentionally grabbed the Conservative MP, which would be taken a lot more seriously if people, (the extreme left), didn’t muddle it with jokes about the NDP woman being elbowed. What Justin Trudeau did to the male MP was actually illegal and would be considered a criminal act, so what better way to sweep everything under the rug than making jokes about what happened to the woman, being it was unintentional, to save Justin’s image and avoid legal consequences, (and because it happened to a woman of course Liberals have to make a gender issue out of it as well)

The Justin fan club are extremely hypocritical when it comes to gender (and race, and religion.) This is something I’ve always wondered, why is it that Conservatives are always called out on sexism, (and everything else ism/phobic), yet Liberals have a free pass to discriminate against anyone and everyone including women, blacks, and gays? At the moment, misogynistic Liberals, (both men and women), are going crazy with defending Trudeau and making the nastiest remarks about the NDP woman on other news sites and YouTube comments, and even nastier remarks about women in general. But of course no one ever calls them out on their misogyny, certainly not Liberal “feminists” and Liberal “men.” Just a bunch of hypocrites who are sexist, racist, homophobic, and hateful of every religion except Islam. Never has this been proven to me more than the fateful day Justin Trudeau was elected our country’s leader by potheads looking to have their weed legalized. Thanks a lot potheads, this country is now as screwed up as your brains.

The conservative MP needs to press charges. It’s all on public record, he would win!
commented 2016-05-19 21:09:17 -0400
I’m ticked at Rona’s response. A fake apology is just not good enough. Trudeau should be charged for going after the conservative, and for harming the lady MP. This kind of behaviour would get anyone else charged and fired, but it outrageous that he is getting a pass on this from the conservatives.
commented 2016-05-19 21:07:02 -0400
Now we know what triggers him – so every effort needs to be made by Conservatives, especially, to trigger him into these immature menopausal mood swings he has. Give him enough rope & he will hang himself! One of his first signs of this kind of behavior was when he so stupidly gave his reporter audience a lesson in how computers work, which is actually a pretty lame explanation!
TruDope is so stupidly insane – he doesn’t even realize it – Proof Positive Lieberalism is a Mental Disorder.
commented 2016-05-19 20:46:58 -0400
I was outraged that some of the liberal MPs stood and gave him a standing ovation when he had finished grabbing Gord Brown and returned to his seat. You don’t see it in all of the video clips but you can quite clearly see it in some, They should apologize for supporting this blatant transgression. It is also symbolic of someone who no longer respects the space and role of the opposition.
