CBC Is Firing 600 People And Pierre Poilievere Is Mocking Them All For Political Brownie Points

Dec 5, 2023

There’s nothing worse than finding out you’re about to lose your job.

Three weeks before Christmas. In the News. Unless, of course, the man who stands to become Prime Minister uses your misery and that of 600 other human beings for a cheap PR thrill on Twitter.

That’s WAY worse.

PeePee is a confirmed compulsive liar, so we don’t need to go there now.

But let me explain what he did to 600 people and their families who rely on those jobs to live – 300 in the swing province of Quebec – and their families.

  • Upon hearing of impending layoffs at Canada’s National Broadcaster, he decided not to support the men, women, and children affected by the impending doom at CBC.
  • He chose to use their misery as political fodder to paint Trudeau and the CBC as bedfellows and corrupt (right out of the Trump “how to be a fascist asshole by painting media and your opponent as corrupt” playbook.
  • He diminished the human suffering of those affected in Quebec – a province fiercely proud of their French-speaking CBC brand as a footnote for his political fortune.
  • He paints all CBC media employees as corrupt agents of the Liberal party (super crucial for fascist assholes)
  • He went full Trump – and you never go full Trump. Canadians are more intelligent than that.

Listen, CBC management and their executives can go fuck their hats. They are all political appointees, and most are from the Harper era whom Pierre’s party appointed. If he has an issue with their compensation while CBC executives fire radio producers making 30k a year, he can blame the same people who share his values and were put there by his boss, Stephen Harper.

He can legitimately blame CBC CEO Catherine Tait, too. The fish rots from the head down, and Ms Tait’s disaster performance yesterday while trying to justify paying executive bonuses AFTER crying poor. In contrast, tubing 600 poorly paid employees is corporate mismanagement and greed.

But he didn’t. He used the human suffering of those most affected to pander to his hillbilly base. People who think their mortgage and rent money go to CBC employees to create nothing but “pro-lib” content on behalf of the ruling Liberal party. He chose to gaslight human suffering for a reputational cheap shot at 7900 other CBC employees as partisan hacks for fascist effect.

If PeePee does become Canada’s next PM, imagine these heartfelt responses coming from your federal leader on the world stage:

“Fuck everyone at the CBC! I’m glad they all got fired. They are paid agents of the Liberals!”

Dancing on the graves of 600 Canadian jobs isn’t Prime Ministerial. It’s what assholes do, but we already knew PeePee was an asshole, so don’t act surprised. He hates himself, so he certainly doesn’t mind mocking a family of four in Three Rivers, Quebec, whose dad at CBC Radio Canada won’t have a job in the new year.

Assholes like Pierre don’t have empathy. They have the emotional capacity of a serial killer, which is what makes guys like PeePee, Trump, Matt Gaetz, etc, successful at hate politics. Who they hurt along the way never matters as long as they have the perception of a winner to their asshole base.

We can all have issues with taxpayer-funded shit. Pierre spends 18k a day in taxpayer money running around the country, spreading anger and hate through lies about rent, homelessness, addiction, and Job losses in the media sector. Or terror attacks that aren’t terror attacks.

Mocking human suffering is no biggie when you have no problem painting a car crash as a terror attack to paint Canada as unsafe by virtue of your political opponent existing. It’s what compulsive liars with the mentality of a serial killer do, and his lack of empathy is a window into the kind of leader he’ll be—a heartless piece of shit who only gives a fuck about himself.
