Canadian Conservative leadership candidate and the physical embodiment of a piece of white paper, Pierre Poilievre took to twitter today to show rally his base and “Reclaim what has always been yours”. In this 4 min video he talks about how loves his wood and how he cleaned it by hand. Yeah, its weird.
Reclaim what has always been yours.

Because the internet is awesome. It took about .2 seconds for the them to start clowning about how weird the video is. I, of course had to chime in on this as well. Here are some of the best moments in the short time this tweet has been alive.
I also have a 4 minute video of me rubbing wood. But that’s on a different site. https://t.co/zthfNIXrkp

Watch a lifelong politician who entered government in his early 20’s and had secured a massive pension before he was 30 tell you about working with your hands. https://t.co/W7h3MlTnHp

Leave it to Skippy here to put what he thought was a motivational video only to be absolutely dragged through the mud by the comedic individuals on Twitter.
Holy duck I think he’s on mushrooms

As some people have pointed out in the replies. What a lot of these talking heads do is put out these videos about “Taking back your own” and “Protect your rights” as dog whistles for the far right to rally and grow. It’s populism at work.
Same dogwhistle language.
