Skip to comments.U.S. right seizes on 'peoplekind' comment ahead of Trudeau's trip to sell NAFTA
Posted on 02/07/2018 10:23:25 AM PST by jerod
A seemingly off-the-cuff remark by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau morphed into a scornful segment on one of U.S. President Donald Trump's favourite TV shows Tuesday just as the prime minister heads to the U.S. in hopes of selling Canada's virtues stateside.
Fox and Friends was among the mainstream media outlets that seized on a surprising exchange between Trudeau and a woman at a town hall event, an interaction that's since spun out to become a subject of global ridicule on the right side of the political spectrum.
The woman was going on about the need for more support for religious organizations and said maternal love was key to changing the future of mankind. At that point, Trudeau interjected, cheerfully telling her, "We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind. It's more inclusive."
The remark was warmly received by both the woman and many others in the audience, but when footage of the exchange surfaced Tuesday, it drew withering condemnation from social and mainstream media.
Prominent British TV broadcaster Piers Morgan called Trudeau a "Chief PC Plonker," accusing him of killing off mankind. Australian columnist Rita Panahi called him the "Kim Kardashian of political leaders; an all-style, no-substance himbo with all the depth of a puddle."

It’s funny, Trudeau objected to mankind, but didn’t object to speaking of maternal love.
If mankind is offensive and not inclusive, then isnt maternal love similarly non inclusive? Shouldn’t he have scolded her about maternal love as well, as being offensive to all people in a child’s life who aren’t the mother?
No doubt the salad-tossing coupons he keeps in the glove compartment of his taxpayer-funded limo are printed in both official languages. This feminized, beta-male cuck is a flagrant example of what happens when an air-headed teenage girl lives inside a little boy’s body.
Don't say "woman." Say "wopeople." It's more inclusive.
The word “person” is out too. It is a patriarchal term derived from “per son.”

Road apples. That was an “Oh, what a giveaway” moment that illuminated the black depths of his being.
Although “depths” might not be an appropriate word here, as he seems as shallow as a mud puddle.
Did he say this at a meeting in the province of Peopleitoba?
Canada has been laying waste to the English language since the 70’s. Particularly the possessive form.
Canadian Weather Bureau = Environment Canada
Canadian Immigration Bureau = Immigration Canada
Canadian Olympic Team = Team Canada
This is the first time an official has used the term “people kind,” be it’s clunky. A more polished speaker with a more facile vocabulary would use “humankind.”
“because it’s clunky”
October 21, 2019 cannot come soon enough! (Nor can May 31, 2019, in Alberta or June 7, 2018 in Ontario!)
Trudeau is 100% Politically Correct and then gets caught Mansplaining to a young woman ,LOL
He could have said humankind. It doesn’t sound quite so overtly and insanely PC.
Nice! Justine Trudeau is such a vapid, virtue-signaling twink. God help Canada.
Allow me to edit CBS’ line: “A seemingly off-the-cuff [and incredibly stupid] remark” - which made him a laughingstock.
Don’t you mean hupeoplekind?
This is from the CBC, part of Canada’s Deep Liberal State. The CBC runs on 1.1 billion dollars from taxpayers, and is known for running conspiracy theories on the twin towers around every Sept 11, and anti-Christian documentaries around Christmas. They are the unofficial spokesmen of the Liberal Party of Canada.
