In this impromptu video, the speaker shares his observation about the situation in Canada regarding the rise of the Social Justice Warrior (SJW) movement and cancel culture. They mention that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has put forward policies that are not well thought out and touchy-feely, which aligns with his image as a progressive woke bloke. The speaker discusses cancel culture as a form of mob justice that bypasses the legal system, while highlighting the hypocrisy of only cancelling those you disagree with. The speaker asserts that while they find it funny and are interested to see the outcome, they believe the legal and political systems should handle such matters rather than mob justice.
The speaker explains that cancel culture initially began to address serious issues like exposing sexual assault, but has veered into targeting everyday people for trivial reasons. They mention having a plan in case they or their husband become a target and intend to share that information in a future video. The speaker remarks that it is ironic that those who are most guilty of cancel culture behavior are often supporters of woke principles. They find it amusing that a photo from 2001 of Trudeau wearing an inappropriate costume has been brought to light, noting that in other circumstances, any non-woke politician would have been severely criticized. However, the speaker clarifies that they do not advocate for this behavior and emphasize the importance of the rule of law. They express that while people have flaws and make mistakes, Trudeau’s failure to address cancel culture effectively is what makes his situation amusing to observe. They conclude by stating that they do not believe Trudeau will receive a free pass for his actions.
