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

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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!

He was renamed Moose Bridge.

If the word man is being deleted from his vocabulary what does Trudeau call his good buddy Peter Mansbridge?

Trudeau heard someone in the media speculate that he may have been trying to make a joke. Because no one could believe what he had just said or why he said it. So he decided to claim he was making a joke which turned out bad.
Well sorry Trudope. Too late. You weren’t making a joke. Listen to the full audio again.
So Gerald, (I know you read the Rebel) pass this on to your pal Trudeau and tell him he’s a bloody arrogant idiot.

The news did, however, report that Trudeau was only trying to make a joke.

As for the asylum seekers, I really wish Canada would do something to stop them.

JERRY RAKETTI—I have been following these Refugee employment numbers for 2 years.
The Head Professor at the University of Berlin did a major study and their Refugees were 83% unemployed after 2 years. (They brought them in before us) The Germans have 3000 companies that employ 30 million people and 6 Refugees are working for these companies; 5 of these are working for the Post Office.
In Canada, it has been 2 years and 1 month. A survey was done in Vancouver approximately 5 months ago. It came up with almost the same results as Germany, 85% unemployed, even though most of these were the cream of the crop refugees vetted by Harper.
Apparently CBC Edmonton did a survey last month where 85 to 95% were unemployed. The Syrian women were interviewed through an interpreter and said that they had no plans of working as they didn’t have to work in Syria. Also they had no plans of learning English.
Immigration is 10% of Canada’s Budget, approximately 35 Billion a year; I have no idea why the Canadian Taxpayers Federation or the Fraser Institute never write about this subject to see if we are getting value for our taxpayers money. To me, it appears that we are bringing in a good percentage of people that will be on Welfare until they die.

CBC is a punchline.
commented 2018-02-08 00:45:38 -0500
What got to the most is the fact that the himbo lied and said that he made a joke when he said that to that woman, and the CBC of course jumped all over that lie and printed it to show that it was nothing.
We all know the POS is a liar, but it is nice to catch the himbo in one.
Trudeau= POS.
commented 2018-02-08 00:30:12 -0500
The world is now wise to what a himbo, feminist, mansplaining selfie-queen we have for a Prime Minister. Foreign relations are a breeze with Canada in the eyes of every government around the world now. All they have to do is throw in a amendment for peoplekind and the deal is done. Of course the CBC will “report” Justin brings home a deal worthy of all peoplemanity.

“Peoplekind” is not a word nor is “islamaphobia” however imbecile is a word.
commented 2018-02-08 00:12:13 -0500
Disgusting that the Canadian Media did not report this!
commented 2018-02-07 23:45:37 -0500
Sorry this is an unnecessary article. The Lieberals fund the CBC so what did you expect? The truth?

There sure is a lot of people… but very few of them are human beings…

It’s been said that 90% of our New Migrants are still Unemployed & on Social Assistance after 1+ years. I’ve not seen the Govt. nor’ MSM refute this with Human examples nor comparisons with previous waves of migrants.
What net advantage can Canadians expect from these new Guests?
commented 2018-02-07 23:29:36 -0500
Ezra, one of your few comical shows tracking how different parts of the world interpreted Trudeau’s PeopleKind.
What worries me is Pakistan, one of the top 3 most dysfunctional Countries on the globe is rightfully laughing at Canada and its Leader. Who will be Canada’s next critic, Somalia or North Korea?
commented 2018-02-07 23:21:17 -0500
Daryl Herman, thank you for a good laugh on your very good comment.

How the f**k did TruDpoe ever get out of retard school?
commented 2018-02-07 23:17:15 -0500
Eldon, I agree with you. Maybe it’s in the water or the food, or too much time on computers, god knows, but younger people now don’t even have basic gut instincts or street smarts. They swallow everything.

Uber cuck Trudeau and his CBC cheerleaders love “peoplekind”

Sadly for everyone involved, Trudeau is like a little boy playing prime minister. I miss Steven Harper.
commented 2018-02-07 22:56:22 -0500
I believe that as the generations go by. We are becoming less intelligent . Just look at our politicians and university grads compared with generations past. It’s embarrassing actually. Those running the country and those voting for them.
commented 2018-02-07 22:45:44 -0500
Great! The peoplekind of Canada elected the stupidest jerk on earth, now an international laughingstock. And we have 2 years still to go, where our international jerk will be negociating for us across the planet. Everywhere he’ll go now, he’ll be known as the feminist who killed mankind. They’ll all be laughing in his back.

CBC propaganda system is actually defending the idiot that runs Canada
commented 2018-02-07 22:11:31 -0500
OMG, Paul Joseph Watson on Justin was brilliant. That is a big viewership having their eyes opened to the selfie prince. This exposure all around the world in different media can only help.
Just be yourself Justin. As you were, please carry on.
I can’t wait for the next gaff.
commented 2018-02-07 21:46:53 -0500
I sent an email to Justin and asked him the very same question regarding bringing ISIS back and received a curt reply, that my concern would be sent to Goodale.

Guildy said, Justin has to bring them back because they are Canadians and it says he has to in the Constitution. What about treason. They went to fight against the West, they are our enemy. If they are returned to us they should be dealt with as traitors. They should be convicted, ( by a judge that would have no conflict of interest)and if they have duel citizenship anywhere, they should have their passports revoked, and they should be deported. If they have no duel citizenship they should be dealt the punishment a traitor receives in any other western country. Trump is keeping gitmo open, That is where they should go.
It is not fair to the citizens of Canada to have ISIS walking around free here.
The U.K. does the same thing and look what it is bringing them? Although most of the violence they experience is from those who haven’t travelled to take up the fight. With ISIS on the streets many more will be recruited.
Just look to the Britain of today, to see the Canada of tomorrow, and I don’t mean next year even. It’s coming fast.

Oh yeah and the Daily Caller has two articles on Junior. One article by Jena Green has video of Smilin’ Andy Scheer doing a great job grilling Junior during question period on Junior’s town hall remarks to the vet and the other Tories actually go wild in the house. The other story by Grace Carr ridicules Junior on his peoplekind remark.

This “peoplekind” gaff is simply symptomatic of a continual litany of inexplicable behaviour. As a Canadian, I really feel shamed and embarrassed in front of the world as Canadian. While this imbecile repeatedly reports, “I speak for all Canadians”. No, you do not. Full Stop. There are normal upright decent people here, and you’re proving in every aspect you’re not of our ilk.

I’m convinced there’s some serious untreated mental health issue with this man. His behaviour cannot be explained merely by his ignorance or bigotry, there’s definitely something sinister afoot here.
