Trudeau sings blue-collar blues to black-tie crowd

It was a bit rich coming from a trust-fund kid, but there was our prime minister nonetheless — guest speaker at Germany’s most prestigious black-tie fete, and lecturing a rich-beyond-rich audience on how to deal with the growing anger among the working class.

Justin Trudeau must have rummaged long and deep to symbolically find a blue collar that was suitably frayed and stressed in order to channel the feelings of the global underclass.

But he was not wrong.

    Hitler preferred Mercedes Benz vehicles……Hitler never rolled in a Volkswagen.
    I’m just sayin…..makes a feller think eh?

    • I bet that pissed off BMW.

        BMW had their turn in WW1 making the Engines for the air planes.
        It was Benz’s turn . How odd though that Ferdinand Porsche created the V W Beetle and later during the war he designed a Tank but the price was too high and lost out to the cheaper version that became the Tiger Tank.
        Ferdinand’s tank had Air Conditioning for the crew , but Hitler fought the War from a desk in a safe Bunker.

      I like the cars in Street Outlaws.

    The Communist Party hierarchy in the Soviet Union used to like to extoll the virtues of the proletariat and the workers’ courageous struggles. Before driving off in their limos to their country dachas to dine on caviar….

    • Sounds like the Liberal Party alright.

    • Alain

      The same with every communist government whatever the country.

    So, Mark, what was the audience reaction at this black-tie affair. Did they at least giggle at this Trudeaupian attempt at comedy.

      !?….EU elites…lapped it up..wanted more

        On second thought they were probably sniggering into their damask napkins at the chutzpah of this breathy-voiced and ill-bred colonial. BTW, was Sophie there? Perhaps not. If she had been, they might have been treated to one of her songs.

    Of course the 800 pound gorilla in the room was not mentioned because he and they are it. The “deep state” or if you like, the entrenched bureaucracy, must be routed out if we are to retain any semblance of a democracy. Donald Trump is the first politician to even remotely challenged this nest of treasonous scum.

    • It is why all public service unions should be outlawed and all bureaucracy hollowed out to the minimum requirement.

    The Pm lives in Rockcliffe if anyone wants to puke just research this area and by the way its mostly white.

    • Justin is such racist!

      A lot of the multicultural-loving elite live in gated communities.

      Their attitudes are worse than that of feudal lords, as the good ones actually made a serious effort to protect their subjects, and would even arm them and teach them to defend themselves as a way of creating an army they could call upon to defend the estate.

      These modern elite on the other hand don’t want us to be able to defend ourselves, and just want to virtue signal while hiding behind their walls and hired knights…

        Pelosi ,Boxer ,Reid ,Suckerberg etc all behind big walls

      • Which is why busloads of Somali migrants should be left at their gates.

    As I understand from the above article, according to the potato the working class is anxious about taxes on corporations being too low . What a wash-out from the past!

      Corporate taxes are on profits only, not gross or even net earnings, unlike personal taxes, which for most people, essentially tax gross income minus a few allowed deductions such as RRSP’s, child care, and employment expenses (income from self-employment and rentals is allowed more deductions). However, dividends can only be paid when the corporation has sufficient profit or retained earnings (after taxes) to cover same.

      Should a corporation incur a greater wage expense, it will pay lower corporate taxes though the employees will be paying higher personal taxes (and, presumably, receive fewer “freebies” such as gst rebates and CCTB) which will make up for it. However, the corporation needs sufficient cash flow to pay said wages: dividends can be deferred or cancelled, wages must be paid regularly.

      However, the PM – and most people – fail to understand that a corporation can be profitable and yet have a problem with cash flow. The NDP are particularly obtuse is this way, but then their members are only very rarely people who have signed the front side of a paycheque (certainly none in the Notley government), so they are particularly clueless when it comes to the reality of running a business.

    Yes, when he is laying on the beach of a billionaire muslim huckster, or drinking wine at a meeting of Europe’s elite, I’m sure his thoughts are on the poor racist peasants trying to pay their bills because of his carbon tax.

  • No, Trudeau’s handlers are attempting to staunch the flow of voters bleeding away.

    Here’s a photo that’s really sad for what Canada has become.
    Not only are we Governed by a pakistani Muslim that wants Sharia Blasphemy Laws enforced in Canada to feel like they are back home in the hell-hole they crawled out of….but in the backdrop a Sikh MP endorses it when he knows Muslims slaughter millions of his people.
    But the man inside the yellow circle is the MP for High Park and he clapped ( along with all the Muslims MP’s ) in the House when Justin refused to rescue the hundreds of Yazedi girls being rape by their muslims brothers in ISIS.
    Lib MP Arif Virani had his campaign Office on Bloor wt , just a short walk from a known Jew-hating homophobic Mosque that exalts Mohhamad Elmasry and was tied to a RCMP in that area when Muslims were wiring money back home to fund terrorism .
    Arif’s front window had the nerve to put a rainbow flag in the window and boast about supporting women’s rights. He’s linked to the Redwood Shelter for women but here’s the hypocrisy ** Get help leaving an abusive situation 24-hour crisis line, in 170 languages:
    (416) 533-8538 *** .
    Muslim women have their own Domestic abuse Phone number in the Blue Pages for Government services which means there is a need for it , yet we keep taking in muslims from an oppressive practise of sharia and islam.
    With over 500,000,000 abuses muslim women outside canada….how many are we expected to take in along with the women from those 170 languages . There could also be over 3 billion abused women outside canada globally plus all the gays and victims of islamic supremacy .

    Lib MP Arif Virani should work on ending islamic domestic abuse and misogyny and shutting down that jew-hating Homophobic Mosque before he and his Liberals want more tax dollars as part of making Canada the World’s Women’s shelter to pay the costs for THEIR problem caused before they come to Canada.

    Here’s a video link to the NISA help line for muslims women. But the intro doesn’t tell you that ” Let the quran Speak ” was a Video series for the Dawah Centre on Bloor west and that the Sheik in the videos had cited the quran to justify killing homosexuals.
    NISA’s own website posts this Verse from the quran to obey allah where you will be safe.
    ( link to see it https://nisahelpline.com/donate/ )
    **** Surat ‘Āli `Imrān, 3:15
    …Say, “Shall I inform you of [something] better than that? For those who fear Allah will be gardens in the presence of their Lord beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants. Those who say, “Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire”******

    Take note that these Hijab women will be useless when the Shafia women called to say they feared being killed for NOT wearing the hijab.
