“What a kook”: De-coding Trudeau's “cringe-inducing” Davos speech

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland is the annual jet-set conference. It’s a mix of celebrities, corporate executives who want to be celebrities, and every imaginable social climber, all talking in buzzwords, about "stewardship" and "thought leadership".

It’s Justin Trudeau’s natural habitat.

And he gave a "word salad" of a speech in Davos yesterday. Here's a sample:

"Too many corporations have put the pursuit of profit before the wellbeing of their workers. The gap between the rich and the poor is staggering. All the while, companies avoid taxes and boast record profits with one hand, while slashing benefits with the other.”

That might be true, somewhere. But in fact, in Trump’s America, it’s pretty much the opposite, isn’t it? So Trudeau is just reheating the same rhetoric that his socialist dad had in the 1970s.

Anyway, Trudeau thinks the answer is: feminism. But not a word about real women’s rights in places like Iran, Saudi Arabia or China. No, instead he wants an even higher female participation rate in the Canadian workforce. And all kinds of quotas.

Trudeau has never run a company, never hired anyone with his own money. Never built anything. This speech was supposed to lure potential investors away from the U.S., to Canada. But he's basically telegraphing to them that he thinks how they run their companies is his business.

I'll take you through more of Trudeau's speech tonight. Do you think it will keep GM, Ford and Chrysler factories in Canada when Trump cancels NAFTA? Do you think it will make Amazon build its second global hub in Canada, instead of, say, Austin, Texas?

Trudeau's promise to them is that a preening clothes horse will inspect your board for gender, racial and sexual diversity.

Yeah, no. But hey — nice socks...

NEXT: Our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid has been at the Edmonton courthouse, covering the trial of the Syrian "refugee" accused of sexually assaulting teenagers at the West Edmonton Mall.

She joins me tonight to talk about what happened during the trial today, how "drastically" the accused's appearance has changed since the assaults allegedly took place — and the dwindling number of Media Party reporters on the scene.

THEN: Our documentary about the ethnic cleansing of Iraqi Christians by ISIS makes its world premiere in Toronto next week.

Tonight, Jennifer Breedon tells us about how she assembled the footage we filmed on the ground last July, along with all new scenes, and turned it into our new film, Saving the Christians: The Forgotten Refugees.

PS: You can buy tickets to the Toronto premiere of the film HERE.

How many Muslim women are allowed to work ? Working women tend to delay child birth . This why Trudeau wants more women to work .
Trudeau and Butts have to stop inhaling . All the trained seals clapped how sad . I’m sure all the translators were scratching their heads to explain just what the hell Trudeau was talking about .
Ezra you know this hour has 22minutes knows Trudeau is the bigger joke but aren’t paid to say so . You don’t bite the hand that feeds you .

I honestly don’t know how equal amount of women in places of power is “not only the right thing to do, but the intelligent thing to do”. If I’m going to be gracious, I’ll assume Trudeau meant women who were wise and intelligent. So starting from that point, let’s assume both men and women who are in places of power need to be wise and intelligent. At this point this makes them equal. So how does being a female give humanity an edge? Their temperament? Their intuition? Their kindness? Their patience?

But isn’t this what constitutes who is wise and intelligent in the first place?! Who’s to say men don’t have other or additional temperaments that could be even more beneficial? Or, what about the potential weakness either sex has that could be a problem?

What ridiculous thinking!!!

Whenever you listen to a gag worthy speech from Trudie, just make sure you have your Puke Bag close in case you have an Unexpected, Spontaneous Hurl Attack. His mouth moves a lot but he virtually says nothing, there’s never any substance in anything he has to say.
With the economic success that Trump is creating in the USA we may see a lot of Canadian based companies pulling out their tent stakes and moving to the USA. Less tax, less government interference, less restrictions, less political correctness. That will be more job loss for Canada. Should that kind of thing happen, get ready for more taxes to cover the shortfall of less employed and therefore a smaller tax base. I’m sure Trudie will be able to correct this by importing more Welfare Parasites to Canada, in his twisted little brain that somehow translates into improving conditions. We get closer and closer to third world status the longer this Mega Twit sits in the PMs Office.

Correct, Ernest. They are not radicals- they are orthodox. That is the term that should be used to avoid any obfuscation.

Esra stop using “Radical”, the lady said it correct “Fundamentalist Islamists”

Mind you Justin is a moron in both Official Languages.

Meanwhile Trump arrives in Davos aboard Marine Force One, how fitting.

After listening to Socks Boy at Davos spouting nothing but his same old tired clichés, I have to start calling him Captain Obvious. I could not listen to the full speech had to skip through it. No fat no bone 100% pure fucking ham. An eight year old could write a better speech than this moron.

Just announced. Campell’s Soup is leaving Ontario (after 80 years) for the US. So how’s that working for you, Justin? Score one more for Trump. Stand by for leftist denials of reality.

I’ve said this many times before and I’ll keep saying it; "The Clown Prince of the Lieberal Party, Justin Mohammed Trudeau couldn’t run a Girl Scout Cookie Drive let alone a country.: And this Lieberal clown has yet to prove me wrong.

Briañ – heard trudope, the sock puppet might be castro’s son, wouldn’t you love to get a blood test on him, but the compliant liberal left wing msm would cover that up for him just like all his stupid blunders.

Trudeau is Canada’s own Dr. Evil, sharing with world his diabolical plan, Preparation “H”, designed by his loyal henchman Mr. Butt. Then again he may have just used an old speech given to him by uncle Castro.What a maroon.

The irony of the climate alarmist global elite all flying into Davos in their thousand odd private jets to stand in chest deep snow preaching the gospel according to Al Gore is just too much.

“The pace of change has never been this fast, yet it will never be this slow again”. Oh wow man….pass the joint will ya. What drivel Trudeau spouts, a classic example of the stupid things Trudeau says. I noted the applause was painfully polite. You know, the kind where the audience feels obligated to clap.

Liza.. Trump’s State Of The Union Speech is on Tuesday the 30th… Mark your calendar correctly please… As for the Boy Blunder at Davos…. I remember the days when Canadian tourists in Europe used to sew the Canadian flag proudly on their their backpacks… Given the abject stupidity of the Boy Blunder, demonstrated yet again on the world stage, I wonder if such a display might prompt the locals to ask touring Canadians:- “Can I buy you a beer?.. Do you want to talk about it?”…

Anybody in Davos who sat there and listened to this sub-human trudoop’s speech and clapped are as demented as trudope is. You wouldn’t catch me dead listening to this insane bafflegab. My God, when will this nightmare end, and we get rid of this suck. He is so hypocritical and evil, the devil must be having a great time with him. Can’t believe he is constantly using our government plane at $36,000 per hour plus all the rcmp and security detail, his parasite entourage, he is raking up one humungous bill every day. He has the nerve to be coming to redmonton then India, it just never ends.
commented 2018-01-25 02:08:25 -0500
I read his speech because he is just too painful to watch and listen to. All I could think was wow, what a lying poser. It is unfathomable to me that anyone could take him seriously.
Looking forward to Trumps speech on the 26. There is already talk of people walking out on him. Lets see who walks, by all means.

The pathetic thing is that there are so many people stupider than Justin who voted for and support him.

Funny how it is fine to tax people into poverty though?

I accidentally met a former colleague recently and asked him if the company was looking at the electricity costs and taxes of their plants in Canada versus the US. If not, they should because of the Trump’s effect. Purely from a business perspective, it makes sense, and curiously, no Trudeau’s mantra on women, race and religious diversity came up in our discussion. It never will either in any other business decision.
commented 2018-01-25 00:45:31 -0500
I am an older woman and I cannot fathom that any thinking, stable women would be swayed to support someone who spouts such an incessant stream of vacuous platitudes. Trying to listen to him, and I have tried, did make me cringe. Just a side note….please don’t tell me those blue and white socks were a fashion statement. I really truly try to take our Prime Minister seriously out of respect for the office but those socks make it so difficult.

Good thing for Soleiman that it wasn’t my daughter he groped. Otherwise he might be singing soprano with the sisters upstairs.

Trudeau’s vacuous speech is outdated by minimum 40 years. For the last 30 at least, women are not discriminated against in any industry, if they are competent and willing to work hard to succeed. Hiwever, from experience, women are not interested in certain fields or industries. Simple as that. There are very few women who like hard manufacturing industries for example, therefore they are not present on the boards of those companies, nor as employees. Trudeau speaks like a college kid or a priest, who has no working life experience. When I hear him, I have an involuntary physical reaction of disdain bordering hostility. He’s such a stupid brainless lunatic who thinks he’s made the discovery of the century. It makes me sick to my stomach that Canadians elected that traitor. I’m starting to understand women who beat their partners. I’d slap him in the face.
