Trudeau cluelessly warns Canadians, “Don’t mess with the National Anthem” — but then does

Brian LilleyArchive

In a Global News interview, Trudeau had a warning for fellow Canadians: don’t mess with the national anthem, but not because of what the Liberals themselves are doing, trying to rush through dying MP Mauril Bélanger’s bill to make our anthem gender neutral

Trudeau’s comments were in response to what one member of the Canadian music group The Tenors did when he messed with the lyrics prior to a baseball game.

I say Trudeau’s "clueless" because he and his fellow Liberals are in the middle of changing something that’s symbolic and treasured for a political agenda and they’re doing it without consulting Canadians.

So yes, Canadians freaked out when Remigio Pereira changed the lyrics, but how is what the Liberals are doing different?

Mike (Wo)Mann

What is your point??? What is the difference between a rogue musician changing the lyrics to the anthem in order to promote their own political agenda vs a rogue politician doing the same?

You think you are soooooo clever and that you possess some sort of superior intellect when you try to debate your pathetic argument. But in reality, you are just another chicken shit hypocrite, void of any common sense.

The French words are different than the English words. The French version was the original version. The first version of the English version was translated from the French version. The English version was then changed a few times until we have what we have today. Trudeau is an idiot! "The most popular version was written in 1908 by Robert Stanley Weir, a lawyer and Recorder of the City of Montréal. A slightly modified version of the 1908 poem was published in an official form for the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation in 1927 and gradually became the most widely accepted and performed version of this song in English speaking Canada. The French lyrics of 1880 remain unchanged.

Following other minor changes, the first verse of Weir’s poem was proclaimed as Canada’s national anthem when Parliament passed the National Anthem Act, in 1980"-http://canada.pch.gc.ca/eng/1443808632942/1443808632944

Michael Mann we have no laws on abortion,how do you change something that does not exist? And killing a baby is not the same as speaking words you loser. Now go bow to idiot Justin, like a good stooge, you were insulting Trumps son the other day, yet you love Justin who has done nothing his whole life to deserve to be PM. PATHETIC!

Easy mik mann/boy, sounds like your head is about to explode. I know that you leftist regressive fuckatrds struggle with opinions that don’t conform to the chicken clucking of the left. Take your pills, insert your thumb in your mouth, curl up and yell for mommy to tuck you in. Every thing will be better in the morning….idiot!

Hey the word went out through Russian media today that there’s a party in Justin’s butt hole and all commie dictators are invited.

You people are so fucking stupid. It’s amazing that your brains can generate enough energy to log into The Rebel.

Anything can be changed with a vote – laws, etc. That’s how government works. Just like how you want there to be a vote to change the laws on abortion. And so yes, the national anthem can be changed if government votes to do so. That is NOTHING like changing it on a whim during a life performance.
commented 2016-07-22 22:18:17 -0400
I will be singing it the way I always have. When Justin is gone we’ll change it back.

Good point that anyone with common sense would understand. Common sense being an oxymoron

Liberal backbencher: I don’t know Mr. Prime Minister… I like Maurice but a carbon tax would cripple my riding. Um. Don’t you think Maurice looks a little pale?

PM Trudeau: Just shut and vote yes ok? (Pulls cord for thumbs up) See Mr. Belanger approves!

Calamity Marcy, look I’m not saying that Lying Retarded Chicken Pastor Dr. Schwartz Mann is a liar but Lying Retarded Chicken Pastor Dr. Schwartz Mann is a liar:

commented 2016-07-22 20:29:06 -0400
It is NO different at all but TruDOPE is too dumb to realize that. Much as I feel compassion for the MP who is dying…..he has NO right to expect our national anthem to be changed to make HIM happy. I will NEVER sing that version…..IF I ever even sing the national anthem at all. Not feeling the love for Canada these days.
commented 2016-07-22 20:26:35 -0400
Now now Mike Krchnak. Lying Retarded Chicken Pastor Dr. Schwartz Mann is a liar. He can’t help himself poor little guy. It’s ok for PM Trudeau to change the anthem by using a dying man as a battering ram because it’s the-current-year-teen. It’s like a Canadian sequel to Weekend at Bernies. We can call it Weekend at Belangers. The wheelchair, the thumbs up, it’s pure gold. Media Party: “Sniff Sniff. In the news tonight, heartless conservatives deny a dying man’s simple wish.” If Belanger were to die tomorrow, the liberals would probably hook him up to cords and pulleys to see what else they could get away with before the rigor mortis set in:

Michael Mann, Mike is right. You’re a walking ass hole. Go take a mouthful of Preparation H and fuck off…
commented 2016-07-22 20:02:35 -0400
Hey little Mik Mann, change is change. If there is any dumbing down to be done, it will be for the leftist regressive fucktards like yourself. By the way, you have not answered the question of what it is like to be a leftist regressive fucktard. Now answer honestly.
commented 2016-07-22 19:43:04 -0400
Are you stupid Brian or just dumbing down for The Rebel audience, so they lose their shit.

There is a VAST difference between making changes per a vote and just changing the national anthem on a whim during a live performance.

I hate this dirty rotten little puke

Ram through whatever you like, me and mine will continue to sing the correct words not the new nonsense.

Ezra, I have a request. Please, when you show images of Trudeau, fog out his face. This will make it easier on my blood pressure.
commented 2016-07-22 14:51:20 -0400
Was that you BORIS? If so keep the lights out. If it is you, NATASHA, I’m glad you can enjoy some of the modern conveniences of the west. It must feel good to have those clean shaven arm pits. And to have that brush pile in your nether regions trimmed up must be a relief. Boris must be thrilled. And yes I remember fondly when Maggie was trolling her muff throughout the rock/celeb circuit. I don’t really blame her though, bedding Papa Doc was probably quite repulsive. I like your JUST-OUT comment, my only hope is that it is JUST SOON.

MARTY A: Too bad my brother sold his .375 H&H. They would have had to identify the exalted one by the muzzy tattoo on his shoulder, his empty head would be gone.
