Gerald Butts is half right: There IS “a lesson to take from” #peoplekind coverage — but not the one he thinks

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


I think we were the first media company to show you that nutty clip of Justin Trudeau interrupting a young woman at a town hall meeting, and embarrassing her by correcting her use of the word “mankind”.

Canada’s mainstream media ignored it, even though they were all right there when he said it, because it’s embarrassing.

It took the mainstream media in other countries to make the story go supernova. As Paul Joseph Watson put in his viral video, "Canada is a meme" (and not for a good reason):

But the "peoplekind" meme was losing steam by the time Trudeau arrived in Chicago, to meet with Team Obama in advance of the NAFTA talks.

Gerald Butts, Trudeau's right hand man, was in Chicago, too. The "peoplekind" came up.

And Butts just couldn’t control himself. At 4am, he tweeted:

The lesson to take from this joke being torqued by Infowars and other alt-right nazi friends of the Rebel is they're paying attention. Game on, #TeamTrudeau.

So it’s the Nazis that are out to get Trudeau?

Nazis like... the BBC? The Washington Post. The Guardian?

The “lesson” is that we’re paying attention to Trudeau?

Of course we are. It’s not "odd" that The Rebel, a Canadian media outlet, is paying attention to the country's Prime Minister...

No, what we really "learned" from Butt's tweet is actually the reverse — that Trudeau’s office, and Butts in particular, is paying attention to little old us, and other online critics.

The second thing is the Nazi quip.

I’m obviously not a Nazi — in fact, I’m Jewish.

And it’s gross that a senior government official would throw around the word "Nazi" so casually. It trivializes what Nazis were, what the Holocaust was. (Speaking of which: This is the same Liberal government that "forgot" to mention Jews in the new Ottawa Holocaust memorial...)

Again: The real “lesson” here is that name-calling is all Team Trudeau has — racist, sexist, Islamophobe, Nazi.

But that’s not really working is it?

Looking ridiculous is the worst thing in politics.

That’s why Gerald Butts is in a rage:

The "peoplekind" gaffe was about individuals no longer being afraid of being scolded, word-policed, shamed and silenced.

NEXT: The creator of that scathing video, Paul Joseph Watson, is my guest, to talk about how Trudeau's image has been impacted by "peoplekind."

THEN: Christine Van Geyn, Ontario Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, comes on to discuss the Ontario PC Party's problematic "People's Guarantee" platform, and leadership hopeful Caroline Mulroney's statement about opposing the carbon tax — a position she shares with opponent Doug Ford.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Actually Herr Butts, John Nolte of Breitbart reports that it is CNN that is giving air time to Nazis and Klansmen.

Gerald Butts and Justin Trudeau have I.Q. of tickle me Elmo. Canada is in trouble !

Mr Butts reaction is typical of a low level intelligence. As his boss the “little potato” he too is an imbecile. The term imbecile for both Butts & Little Potato is a proper response as opposed to calling them both bigots, which in context would be appropriate. Both lack intelligence or common sense to know that nazi’s were socialists and not “right or alt-right” speaks volumes to his ignorance. However, both are great fans of dictators. Mr. Butts lacks any wit with retort. BTW “alt-right” is another made up word. I also find it intriguing that someone with a Masters in English literature and a part time drama teacher become the two most powerful men in Canada, funny what and a little education is absurdly unintelligent.

Kevin Bond.. HERE HERE.!!! Well said…
50 yrs of Trudeau will take 100 yrs to fix..
Perhaps Ezra or even the rebel viewers could find images of Pierre Elliott riding around on his motorcycle wearing a Nazi uniform while overseas Allied troops were being slaughtered to protect our rights and freedoms at home which the next generation of Trudeau is hell-bent on destroying once and for all.
There must be some images of this available… that would be very useful at campaign time or the next time Butts opens his mouth and talking about Nazis.

“We stand with the lawmakers around the world, including in Canada, in their efforts to protect the democractic process,” Kevin Chan, Facebook’s policy chief in Canada.

Yeah? Bull sht!

If they cared about fake news they would kill the cbc. They care about wrong news. News they cannot control. They don’t fool anyone with this codswallop.

1968-2018…50 years of Trudeaus and Liberals endorcing sexual perversion and the slaughter God’s Unborn Children. Thats a Holocaust. Hey Butts….your definition of Nazi must have come out of the new libtard Manhood Dictionary

Since I cut the cable & went to an antenna…I stumble across the CBC a lot…including This Hour Has 22 Minutes re-runs since they are on after 11pm…and they are almost all from the Harper Bashing Years…I estimate they could be at any time while he was PM…that could make them 10 years old & newer…

I suspect the CBC wants to keep alive their negative portrayal of Harper during this time with Trudeau…

As a Formal Complainant in the Marketplace Episode…I received personal responses from 2 or 3 different people at the CBC…at least one of them was from a Program Director at CBC…I responded(but received no response) by asking why doesn’t THH22M mock Justin since he is Comedy Gold…I even offered to write for them…

I even gave them some examples…such as…when the National used the slogan “The Alternative to Alternative Facts”….

I suggested…“The National, We Re-think…Space…and …Time”

Also…“The National…Where The News Balances Itself”

Who am I kidding…they don’t hire Conservatives…

The difference between the Justin, Butts/Islamic alliance and us regular Canadians is that we are prepared to live and let live if they would do the same. Not only do they refuse to respect Canadians, and demand complete compliance instead, it would go against what Islam stands for. Islam couldn’t even try. Live and let live and Islam is an oxymoron. Islam exists to conquer, and it looks like Butts and Justin exist for the same reason. The power and the glory, that is their drug.

We are not fake news, we are wrong news. They don’t want ‘woke’ Canadians to infect the rest of the sheep. Many are still sleeping and it will make for an easier complete take over to keep them that way. Only problem is, its already too late. More are waking every minute.

These two commie drinking buddies and college roommates can’t take us out on their own. They need Islam and they need Soros and the other big globalist rollers and controllers. What was Justin doing meeting with Obama the other day? Trump could help in taking out that trash, and I do think he is trying.

Nope Dan, we have to wait this one out. What you suggest could only happen in our dreams. The more idiotic Justin and Butts look the more sheep wake up. They look stupid without our help. Now the stupidity is being picked up internationally there will be no stopping the news, the truth. Once Justin starts losing his shine (which is clearly starting to happen) the more dangerous he will become, but also more vulnerable.

The next 20 months are going to be a trip.
Like Butts said, “game on”.

Really Gerald? That’s how your going to spin it? He was “joking”? If that’s true, why are you rushing to silence media that does not follow your script? If what your spinning was true, then the media reporting this would discredit them selves right? That whole Nazi thing used to be what you resorted to when you ran out of valid arguments supporting your position… Pathetic.

Ezra.. there are many dangerous men and women that not only make up the cabinet for this Liberal government but are the advisers to the haircut… The p.m. clearly has a goal but that is certainly not the advancement of Canadians or Canadian values going into the future… keep the pressure up on Justin Trudeau, Gerald butts, Mariam Monsef, climate Barbie Catherine and the others. Sometimes it is a thankless job with not enough rewards but normal every day people thank you for your effort.

In regard to the Butts story, here’s a pretty frightening bit of news:
“…Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has warned social networking giant Facebook it needs to fix its “fake news” problems or face stronger regulation from Ottawa…."

Of all the damage done to Canada by the Trudeaus, the damage done to our relationship with our best friends and neighbours, America, has to be the worst. Short term and long term.
The Liberals, since Pierre Trudeau, have had an unhealthy and ridiculous attitude of anti-Americanism.
Since we don’t have capital punishment on the books in the CCC anymore – or the political will and cajones to hang the treasonous bastard Justin for his treachery and treason, short of assassination, there has to be a way to exorcise this cancerous plague of Trudeaus from our country and its ability to survive as a sovereign First-World nation, BEFORE the next so-called election. We won’t survive Justin and his Globalist masters…
Dare we ask President Donald Trump for help in removing the would-be dictator Jihadi Justin and his Globalist cronies from office – it’s not like America doesn’t reach out to other countries to extend a hand to rid these poor people of the dictators standing on their throats – they just happen to be all third world countries…and Jihadi Justin and his Islamic Invasion/Open Borders BS presents a grave threat to the national security of America…

Too late Gerald.
Justin had said it. The stupid statement had left his lips. Peoplekind, good Lord !
Numerous time during the town hall Justin stopped others from interrupting other audience members who were asking Justin a question.
Gerald, you think because your sheep believe your lies, the International media will too? And you are pissed because the Rebel ran the story?
Sorry Gerald, too late.

None of these pompous, preening tits can stand derision. They’ve never encountered it in their pampered lives. They view it as an insult to their dignity – and dignity is something they don’t possess.

MARK CHADWICK commented, “I am insulted for being called a Nazi by Mr. Butts for thinking outside the Liberal box . Many Canadians have died to give me that right “
How about using those points in a letter-writing campaign to Trudeau and Scheer calling for Trudeau’s firing of Butts for his hateful libellous defamation of Canadians and attack on our freedom of expression .

EZRA , the derangement syndrome has been ridden into the wall , there’s a new common sense movement started by DONALD TRUMP, it’s the re arrangement syndrome. People kind are starting to compare the difference.
It’s easy to be a Marxist in a democracy
