Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on a liberal Wednesday over new inclusiveness training in Canada that uses the acronym “LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP.”
Carlson interviewed Stephen Ledrew, the former president of the Liberal Party of Canada, over Canadian elementary school teachers attending an inclusiveness training that made use of the term “LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP,” which reportedly stands for, “Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous.”
Tucker said, “Well, the tolerance police have a lot of power here in America, in case you haven’t noticed, but they’re even stronger in Canada. Just yesterday Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau delivered an official apology to gay and transgender Canadians for the past state discrimination against them. But now, teachers in Durham, Ontario, had to attend an inclusiveness training course for the–deep breath here–LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP community, which is apparently a community. That 15-letter acronym, intended to encompass all sexual minorities, may soon be required soon at schools.”
Carlson asked Ledrew attempted to explain.
The Canadian said, “Well, generally shortened to the LGBTQ, which is the community, and there’s a few extra ones they’ve added in there. But, no one goes by that. Maybe that’s to teach kids the alphabet or not, but generally it’s referred to, the Prime Minister referred to it yesterday in the House of Commons during his apology as ‘LGBTQ.’ Some people don’t know what it means. They know it means inclusiveness, it’s a good thing. It’s a question of tolerance.”
The Daily Caller co-founder continued to try to get a solid answer from Ledrew, but the guest continued to defer.
