Would Trudeau Want to Change Moonlanding Words to ‘Giant Leap for Peoplekind’?
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has proven himself to be the world’s most politically correct world leader. His constant pandering to social justice warriors, feminists and praise of Islam has earned him worldwide ridicule. If people in other nations believe their leaders are bad when they hear Trudeau speak they are glad they don’t live in Canada. He has won the Unshackled’s International Cuck of the Year Award two years running now.
His most recent contributions have been when asked about his response to ISIS fighters from Canada he compared their return to “Italian families settled in Montreal in the postwar years” and claimed they shouldn’t be discriminated against. He has also overseen the changing of the Canadian national anthem O Canada so its lyrics are gender neutral.
Trudeau has now become an even greater international laughing stock when he interrupted a woman at a Town Hall meeting last Friday when she used the term mankind “We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind ‘cause it’s more inclusive”. While his new contribution to the English language was well received at the Town Hall has been widely seen as his worst example of political correctness yet.
While Trudeau’s virtue signalling and commitment to diversity and inclusion is normally lapped up by the media his creation of the term peoplekind was too much for the mainstream media to swallow. As a result Trudeau has now claimed that the term was meant to be a joke which was taken literally “You all know that I don’t necessarily have the best of track records on jokes. I made a dumb joke a few days ago that seems to have gone a little viral”.
When someone’s comments receive a backlash they often fall back on the defence it was meant to be a joke. Many suspect Trudeau would have liked to have seen peoplekind be adopted widely adopted not just in Canada but in the whole English speaking world. It’s pleasing to see that politically correctness still appears to have its limits.
Given Trudeau’s changing of the national anthem to be gender neutral and leftists’ desire to rewrite history to be more inclusive, one wonders if the famous words of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon in 1969 would have been edited in name of gender equality from “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” to “That’s one small step for people, one giant leap for peoplekind”
Everybody knows those famous words but no one hardly believes they are sexist. But of course a feminist could believe that they imply great human achievements can only be made by men and that the astronaut profession is dominated by men. Our society can always become more politically correct and language can become even more policed.
Finally there has been some pushback against Trudeau social justice madness. Though sadly he is still ahead in all of the Canadian opinion polls which means who knows what social engineering campaign and language policing he will engage in next
