In a hilarious new video uploaded earlier this month by conservative comedian Owen Benjamin, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was absolutely ridiculed for a comment he made at a town hall event on the importance of saying “personkind” instead of “mankind.”
The video, which you can watch in full below, starts out with footage from this Canadian town hall event of concerned citizens taking the prime minister to task on real issues the country is currently facing. “What, if anything, are you going to do to curb your insane and reckless spending habits, which are on the verge of being criminal, to make sure that we do not end up being $1.5 trillion in debt as your government predicts?” asked one citizen.
Another criticizes Prime Minister Trudeau for making it incredibly difficult for veterans to get the care that they need, despite the fact that Trudeau in the past has assured vets that this wouldn’t be the case.
When yet another Canadian at the town hall event mentioned the word “mankind” in her question, Prime Minister Trudeau interrupted her and told her that it’s best to say “personkind” instead. From that point on, Owen Benjamin’s video turns into a humorous compilation of individuals changing words to make them more politically correct and gender neutral. (Related: Political correctness is really just herd psychology pushed by insecure people who desperately seek social conformity.)
“My wife wanted to go on a nice romantic date the other day. She said, ‘make sure it’s very romantic.’ It’s time to make a change: ro-person-atic,” one person says in the video, obviously mocking how Prime Minister wanted to change the word mankind to personkind. Other words that were changed include manatee (changed to person-atee), manure (changed to person-ure), and mandarin (changed to person-darin). The entire video was truly hilarious, and also sends a clear message to Prime Minister Trudeau that his politically correct mantra has gotten way out of hand.

As more proof that Canada is moving further and further towards social liberalism, back in June of last year, The Daily Caller reported that Canada’s Senate officially passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into not only the country’s Human Rights Code, but also under the “hate crime” category of its Criminal Code. This means that the new law, which was passed by a vote of 67-11, essentially makes it a crime to use the wrong gender pronoun.
“Great news,” Prime Minister Trudeau wrote on Twitter not long after the Senate passed the bill. “Bill C-16 has passed the Senate – making it illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. #LoveisLove.”
Of course, such a law raises many questions that apparently Prime Minister Trudeau didn’t care to consider. What if a person uses the pronoun “her” to address someone that is clearly a female, but this female says that she identifies as a man? Will this person be put in jail? What would happen if someone cited facts and biology instead of buying into the left-wing, social justice propaganda? Would they feel the wrath of Canada’s law enforcement too? How does Justin Trudeau justify the criminalization of basic science? (Related: Politically correct language control is a danger to society that has led to the genocide of millions over the years.)
Canada is obviously starting to go over the deep end and it appears as though the people are fed up with it. Unfortunately, with so much emphasis now being placed on social justice and diversity, the United States isn’t very far behind.
