Trudeau – Why Ken’s Wrong

Justine Castro” is Ken Wheeler’s new nickname for Canada’s prime minister. Find out why this nickname comes from rumours that are inaccurate as well as logistically and biologically impossible.

Pierre Elliot Trudeau was probably the most charismatic prime minister that Canada ever had. Mind you, he hasn’t had much competition.

Canadians of a certain age vividly remember how he captured the country’s imagination in 1968 – a phenomenon called Trudeaumania. One of the most captivating events of those years was the 52-year-old bachelor’s marriage to 23-year-old Vancouver socialite, Margaret Sinclair.

The couple married secretly on March 4, 1971. They took a one-week honeymoon at the Whistler ski resort and then headed to Ottawa on March 8.

Justin Trudeau Was Born on December 25, 1971

Margaret moved into the official Prime Minister’s Residence at 24 Sussex Drive immediately after the honeymoon. Their first son, Justin Trudeau, was born on December 25, 1971 – Christmas Day. This was a major media event across Canada that charmed the whole country.

This means that the couple conceived Justin sometime between March 16 and April 22, 1971. Why this matters will become clear in a moment.

Relying on reports from fake experts on Canadian politics, Ken Wheeler has been commenting in support of the anti-vaccine protests in Canada recently. During those videos, he has taken to referring to Canada’s prime minister as “Justine Castro.”

Childish Feminization of Prime Minister’s First Name

Presumably, Kentucky Ken intends this childish feminization of the Prime Minister’s first name to imply that he’s not manly enough. He may have come across a bizarre conspiracy theory on the dark web that Justin Trudeau is transgendered.

As we’ve seen, Justin Trudeau’s birth was a nationwide news event. It would have been impossible for his parents to hide his gender in those circumstances.

Having been born while his father was in office and being the couple’s first child, Justin Trudeau grew up in the media spotlight. He has clearly identified as male from birth.

Clearly Identified as Male From the Day of His Birth

Throughout his adult life, Justin Trudeau has been recognized as a tall, handsome man. He inherited his fine features and luxuriant dark, wavy hair, but not his gender, from his glamorous mother.

The Angry Photographer may have other reasons for his childish “Justine” moniker. If so, apparently he’s unaware that Justin Trudeau is an expert amateur boxer and has a black belt in judo.

Canada’s head of government is also an avid outdoorsman. He’s an experienced canoeist, rock climber, and snowboarder.

Devoted Family Man Who Has Fathered Three Children

Justin Trudeau is also a devoted family man who has fathered three children. That’s not biologically possible for a trans man. He’s been happily married to Sophie Gregoire for seventeen years.

So, one really has to wonder where Ken Wheeler gets the idea that Justin Trudeau is effeminate, warranting the Justine Castro moniker. Certainly, nothing in his personal life suggests that.

Now, let’s talk about the “Castro” part. This is an allusion to other bizarre rumours that Justin Trudeau is the biological son of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. The main reason this urban legend is preposterous is that Justin Trudeau was born in 1971, while his mother met Fidel Castro for the first time in 1976.

One might think this timeline alone would put this urban legend to rest. Beyond that, the 1976 encounter was an official visit between her husband and the Cuban leader. She merely accompanied the Canadian prime minister, and there’s no evidence of any personal friendship between Margaret Trudeau and Castro.

Born in 1971, Mother Met Castro for the First Time in 1976

However, rumours are stubborn things. Cherry-picking dates from fifty-year-old travel itineraries, conspiracists now maintain that Castro impregnated Margaret Trudeau during the Trudeaus’ Caribbean tour in April 1971.

The couple visited Barbados, Tobago, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad. They didn’t visit Cuba, which is where Castro remained throughout this period.

Impossible for Justin Trudeau to be Child of Fidel Castro

So, despite the label Justine Castro, it’s a logical fallacy and logistical impossibility that Justin Trudeau could conceivably (pun intended) be the illegitimate child of Fidel Castro. Grasping at straws, and demanding an impossible standard of proof, conspiracists have pointed out that Justin Trudeau doesn’t look much like Pierre Trudeau.

The problem with that argument is that, as mentioned above, Justin Trudeau is the spitting image of his attrractive mother. He doesn’t look much like Fidel Castro either.

So, as always, Ken Wheeler is completely misinformed on this point. He may realize that the rumours are baseless, which could be why he only alludes to them by using the puerile Justine Castro nickname.

Epic Gullibility – Demonstrably False Notion

It’s equally possible that the Theoria Apophasis host’s epic gullibility has made him fall for two more demonstrably false notions. In either case, as always, he doesn’t have the first clue what he’s talking about.

One also has to ask how these rumours would be relevant to current events, even if they were true. They’re not.
