Justin Trudeau is being mocked for his over-the-top political correctness policing of Canadian citizens after he interrupted a woman during her question at a town hall meeting, to admonish her for using the term “mankind” as opposed to “peoplekind”.
The Canadian Prime Minister was hosting a Q&A at MacEwan University in Edmonton on Thursday, the latest stop on a cross-country tour that began last month.
A young woman from the World Mission Society Church of God, a controversial feminist church founded in South Korea, stood to ask a question about volunteering.
Canadian regulations place restrictions on volunteering with religious organizations, and the young woman wanted Trudeau to make it easier for her church to do volunteer work.
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, of Canada, who got into hot water for refusing to use government mandated pronouns, appeared on Fox and Friends where he was asked by Brian Kilmeade about the recent controversy surrounding the cancellation of Father-Daughter dances in America because of gender guidelines.
Dr. Peterson explained, “It’s part of this absolute onslaught by the radical leftists on the fundamental normative structures of our culture. And if you’re going to cancel everything that’s triggering to everyone, then you’re going to cancel everything altogether. Because there isn’t a single thing that anyone can ever say or do that isn’t going to offend someone. And the idea that this is being done so that certain people’s feelings won’t be hurt, I think is absolutely absurd. It’s not compassion and care that’s driving this, its the desire to put forward a very a pernicious ideology and it’s been very, very successful in its application.”
Brian Kilmeade interjected, “They say they’re doing this to be more inclusive.”
Dr. Peterson responded, “Yeah, well, they say all sorts of things, and they are a very small, noisy, dangerous minority. And it’s really appalling that we’re bending over backwards to uh, to, do their bidding without question, under the name of compassion.”
Even the liberal former CNN host Piers Morgan went off on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:
I’ve watched the video a few times now and it gets worse with every viewing.
Trudeau comes over as the worst kind of hectoring, bully pulpit smart-a**; dripping with virtuous self-aggrandizing sanctimony.
He also saw fit to single-handedly rewrite the English language.
There is no such word as ‘peoplekind’.
And he’s wrong too about the etymology of the word ‘mankind’.
It dates back to a time many centuries ago when males were called ‘werman’ and females ‘wyfman’, and ‘man’ was a gender-neutral term meaning all human beings.
So ‘mankind’ was originally intended to signify humanity.
Not that Trudeau will care about such trifling inaccuracies.
After all, he is the single most PC-friendly, touchy-feely Prime Minister in the history of world politics.
He marched at Canada’s version of Gay Pride, he’s pro-choice on abortion, pro legalizing marijuana and pro just about anything else that he thinks might win him the hearts of global liberals.
There’s not a diversity box Trudeau hasn’t promptly hammered himself inside. He’s even called poverty ‘sexist’.
‘I’m a feminist, I’m proud to be feminist,’ he declared after acceding to office.
And to prove it, Trudeau’s first ‘gender-parity’ cabinet contained the exact same number of men and women, 15 of each.
To understand why he’s become such a fervent gender trailblazer, look no further than an incident early into his tenure, in which Trudeau stormed across the Canadian House of Commons during a heated debate and accidentally elbowed a female MP, Ruth Ellen Brosseau.
He didn’t even know he’d done it, which is hardly surprising when you watch the video of the incident and see an accidental, very mild contact of the kind that happens every second of every day on the subway.
But that didn’t stop Ms Brosseau reacting like she’d been beaten to within an inch of her life: ‘It was very overwhelming,’ she wailed, ‘and so I left the chamber to go and sit in the lobby.’
Her colleague Niki Ashton said she was ‘ashamed’ to witness the ‘deeply traumatic’ incident and declared that Trudeau’s ‘manhandling’ was the ‘furthest thing from a feminist act’. –Daily Mail
