Trudeau’s “personkind” gaffe went viral around the world — except on the CBC

Rebel Staff

It’s been a few days now, but remember we showed you a gaffe by Justin Trudeau? At a town hall, when he interrupted a young woman who was asking a real question to him, and told her not to use the word "mankind"?

We were the only Canadian media showing you this grossness, even though every single mainstream media outlet had a reporter at that town hall.

Well, the mainstream media doesn’t have the stranglehold on information like they used to. So the clip of Trudeau telling the woman to say “peoplekind” went viral, on Twitter and Facebook but also in mainstream media outlets in Australia, the US, the UK, including the left-wing Guardian.

I have seen the story in Czech, Pakistani and Dutch newspapers.

Everyone was sharing it — except the mainstream media in Canada, especially the CBC.

The government comedians at the state broadcaster, a show called This Hour Has 22 Minutes, did indeed make a joke about it, though. Sort of:

“Trudeau tells woman at town hall to say humankind instead of mankind. That’s what they call humansplaining.”

Except that’s not what he said. Even that would be embarrassing, to interrupt a woman like that. But at least "humankind" is a real word. The real joke is that Canada’s prime minister made up a word that was even dumber: "Peoplekind."

They later deleted that tweet, but not before I saved it.

Well, last night, the CBC finally caved. Their first story on the subject was an attack on the people who did cover the "peoplekind" story — including us, since we were the first to mention it!

U.S. right seizes on 'peoplekind' comment ahead of Trudeau's trip to sell NAFTA

That’s not news reporting. That’s political spin.

That’s trying to anti-report, un-report the news.

But it was a bit late, don’t you think?

We don’t need or trust the state broadcaster anymore, we can see it for ourselves...

NEXT: I'm joined by conservative activist and founder of Alberta Can't Wait Prem Singh, who wonders what will happen when Trudeau brings this kind of virtue signalling to the NAFTA negotiations.

THEN: Immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann is my guest, to talk about reports that Canada's acceptance of asylum seekers has hit a 27-year high. Should we be worried?

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I have called left-winged liberal msm traitors to this country. Msm will do anything to cover this inept vacuous sock puppet gaffes and misdeeds and are always campaigning for him, after all for some unknown reason, they love him and mark my word, they will do the same this election coming up.

We would be better off with a prize like McKenzie King for PM. Yes, he took political guidance from his dog but that far surpasses the wisdom of The Tater Tot taking advice d from Gerald Butts. Go Rover, go!

Amazing. Its like… I dunno.. he’s just not ready or something.
Without a doubt the stupidest national leader in world history. But I’m willing to be corrected.

Justin Trudeau said, “The Liberal Party believes terrorists should get to keep their citizenship. Because I do.”
The penalty for high treason is life imprisonment.
So what’s the problem?

All in favour raise your voice.
I am in favour .

This site never used to be so glitchy. Am I the only only who gets these interruptions of words being repeated over and over and the video being dropped part way through? This never happens on any other You Tube videos. I can only assume that You Tube is attempting to drive people away from the site. But then that would make me a conspiracy theorist.

If it weren’t for the loss of freedom and the international embarrassment Canadians are suffering under PM Little Spud, it would almost be worth it just for the comic relief we get from this lunatic’s endless gaffes. It’s a shame he couldn’t own up to his latest lunatic PC gaffe and felt the need to lie about it. Alas, Canada is now an international laughing stock and no amount of dissembling will change that fact. Only turfing this government at the next election will.

In an interview in 2012 when he was WWF-Canada President and CEO, Gerald Butts, now the prime minister’s principal secretary, when asked “Why don’t we propose a different route for the Northern Gateway Pipeline?”, he replied, “Truth be told, we don’t think there ought to be a carbon-based energy industry by the middle of this century. That’s our policy in Canada and it’s our policy all over the world.” He went on to say “the real alternative to the Northern Gateway is not an alternative route. It is an alternative economy.” Truth be told as a socialist, what kind of an “alternative economy” does socialist Butts have in mind?

Spencer Fernando has a blog post about “Trudeau Advisor Gerald Butts Despicably Compares Critics Of Trudeau’s ‘Peoplekind’ Comment to ‘Nazi’s’”

Labelling critics (despite many of them being media from the left) dismissively in a tweet as “alt-right nazi friends of the Rebel”. Noteworthy that he tweeted this while travelling with Trudeau in the U.S., on the taxpayer’s dime.
Butts, as a socialist is familiar with his socialist cousins, the Nazis (National Socialist German Workers’ Party) and acts accordingly.

Deep down and well hidden there is something funda-mentally wrong with the P.M.’s thought process.

Justin Trudeau said, “The Liberal Party believes terrorists should get to keep their citizenship. Because I do.”

According to Section 46 of Canada’s criminal code:
High treason
(1) Every one commits high treason who, in Canada,
(a) kills or attempts to kill Her Majesty, or does her any bodily harm tending to death or destruction, maims or wounds her, or imprisons or restrains her;
(b) levies war against Canada or does any act preparatory thereto; or
© assists an enemy at war with Canada, or any armed forces against whom Canadian Forces are engaged in hostilities, whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are.
It is also illegal for a Canadian citizen or a person who owes allegiance to Her Majesty in right of Canada to do any of the above outside Canada.
The penalty for high treason is life imprisonment.
So what’s the problem?

Guidy says, “The reason we are taking them back is for one reason and one reason only, they have Canadian citizenship. We have to take them back.”
Guidy fails to mention that in 2017 the Liberals introduced legislation that repealed a Conservative provision that striped citizens of their Canadian status if convicted of terrorism, treason or espionage. As well, okay “they have to take them back”, but, as terrorists, they should be charged with treason and treated accordingly according to our laws; not coddled.

A simple Google search will show that the CBC extensively talked about/covered this, so Ezra is lying. Again.

The CBC with its political spin inadvertently gave the Rebel some good publicity announcing that Sebastian Gorka is onboard. Once again, a clear revelation of its being a paid state broadcaster. And only about 5 other CPC MPs supported Brad Trost’s bill to sell off the CBC!

We shouldn’t be too hard on Justin as I hear he is in the US to teach Trump some of his Financial Abilities like how Budgets Balance Themselves.

Even if he was trying to make a joke, degrading a woman and her legitimate concern at a town hall meeting while interrupting her doesn’t carry a lot of humour..

The man did not inherit his father’s brains. I think the real PM of Canada is his Wife and Mother. THey are the one’s pulling his strings. And for those of us who remember his mother and father, his mother was a flighty piece of work.

He didn’t say “personkind”, but rather “peoplekind”.

Gerald Butts has called Infowars a bunch of Nazis. Do I detect a PJW “Gerald Butts is a Complete Idiot” video coming. Hmmm….could be!

I agree with your observations Robert McCelland, Trudeau is being made fun of on all the conservative news sites. He is not being taken seriously Domestically or Internationally. I wouldn’t be surprised if he shows up on the next Fireman calendar on his birthday month.
commented 2018-02-08 08:44:48 -0500
We all know it wasn’t a joke and that the reaction outside of Canada caused Trudeau to try a cover story.
I hope we can make this foolish comment of his stick.He wears it well.

This story is not going away in the States. Fox and Friends isn’t buying Junior’s it was just a joke explanation. Infowars has picked up on the Daily Caller story “Watch Justin Trudeau Get Downright Annihilated by a Few Patriotic Canadians”. The story contains both PJW’s new “Trudeau is a complete Idiot” vid and video of Smilin’ Andy Scheer actually doing his job during Question Period.

Most of the people I deal with on a daily basis are American. Every day I get chided about The Clown Prince Trudeau and his goofy antics and corrupt dealings They can’t believe what they read or hear in the news.

One of them actually asked me yesterday "so you honestly elected this man-child as your leader? My response was “no, I had nothing to do with it”.

If nothing else Trudeau provides Canada a source of humour and resentment. Nothing more.
