"We Say Peoplekind": Trudeau Mansplains To Woman That "Mankind" Is Not An Appropriate Term

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being widely mocked over the internet after he interrupted a woman during  a town hall to admonish her over using the word "mankind" in her question, telling her to instead use "peoplekind." Trudeau was hosting a Q&A at MacEwan University in Edmonton on Thursday as part of a cross-country tour which began in January. 

Aimee, a member of South Korean feminist church World Mission Society Church of God, asked a question about removing Canadian restrictions on religious organizations when Trudeau corrected her. 

Aimee: We came here today to ask you to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislations so that it can also be changed because maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind.

Trudeau: We -- we like to say "peoplekind," not necessarily "mankind" 'cause it's more inclusive. 

Aimee tells the Daily Mail that she wasn't offended by Trudeau's comment, saying "It wasn't negative,' and adding "Did it look like I was bothered by it?" 

And while Aimee may not have been bothered per-se, Twitter was merciless to the politically correct Prime Minister:

How fucking cunty.  These SJWs are smarter than tens of thousands of years of language evolution. Riiiiiiiiiiight.  Funny because they look like complete fucking idiots to me.

Oh, you're asking SERIOUSLY?  Basically it boils down to the fact that Canada follows the US.  At the time it seemed like the whole Obama thing was unstoppable and would continue on forever.  So they elected an Obama-clone and thought everything was good.  It's just a timing issue, not really their fault.  

They fucked up.  They'll politely apologize and snap in line the next election.  Canadians are, if nothing else, very polite.

Don't spend too much time worrying about political matters in vassal states of the US. They'll fall in line with whatever we do.

Stephen Harper was intelligent, judicious, and pragmatic. He wanted to exert iron control over his party's media use because he understood the Canadian media, even more left wing than the US MSM, was waiting and watching and ready to pounce on the slightest possible error. For ten years, he was accused of having a 'hidden agenda', but somehow not one of the things in it that the left claimed he was slavering to enact (abortion restrictions, end to gay marriage, etc. ) occurred, even though he had a parliamentary majority, and could have done so at will. 

We will rue the day the we lost Stephen Harper - by far the best PM of my six decades.

Stephen Harper, friend of Israel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Harper#Israeli_and_Jewish_affairs

and this:

"During mid-2015, Harper repeatedly voiced his opinion that Russia should be excluded from association with the G7 group of nations because of Russia's support for Russian-speaking Ukrainian dissidents. On June 8, Harper said,"Mr. Putin ... has no place at the [G7] table, and I don't believe there's any leader who would defend Mr. Putin having a place."

Like I said.  Satrap.
