The saga continues. A third image/video has now emerged. The global media keeps pressing on. We saw this with Northam before as well (Northam is still in power btw).

My question is - why now? Why not when he was first seeking leadership?

There is an election. Trudeau is seeking a second term. Why has this *suddenly" been uncovered in 2019? Why not in 2015?

Well, he is the prime-minister of "woke"....I think he finally just fell on his own sword.

Because, in reality, this isn’t a big deal. Only recently has it become a big deal because everyone is “woke” now and on a hair trigger about race, skin color, cultural appropriation.

Basically the loons on the left have created crisis and drama where there never used to be.

When did blackface become a big no no in the news?
Long after 2015 I think...

There is no statute of limitations on racism....impeach!

You have to admit that all these "holier than thou" types getting skewered for their own nonsense is kind of funny.


Me, I could care a less about someone donning any costume (even blackface). The funny part is that the people that are "offended" by it the most are guilty of it in their past.

To call this debacle "racism" is to insult those who have actually suffered actual racism.

I don't even like the guy, and I'm annoyed.

it's craziness and desperation. And it is ridiculous.

At some point in the past, there would likely be a meaning to the timing. From opposition strategy to distraction..

Now?

It really just seems to be a race to outwoke others and have "got 'em" moments, cancel culture power trips, and twitter dopamine hits.

That doesnt mean that there is no timing or strategy whatsoever anymore, but unlike in the past, we can no longer be so certain it has meaning beyond a Woke Cultist stumbling upon something they can be publicly woke about. Or, at this point, even as a response to the Woke Cult (I dont think thats good either).

Is this more like cultural appropriation?
I realize it's only racism when the right does it.

It's politics. You're seriously telling me that you don't know how politics works. I may not agree with transgenderism, for example, but if I'm in public life as a politician for a "progressive party", I'm going to say something like "everybody should be happy and everybody has freedom" blah blah and show myself as progressive. This is nothing new. Donald Trump for instance may not like black people but he is well aware that African Americans are a large voter base and his administration has done quite a bit for African Americans in this term.

It's politics, dude.

Dreadlocks may be described by some as "cultural appropriation".

Fancy dress at a party (or two or three haha) wouldn't be "cultural appropriation".

It isn't "only racism when the right does it". I'm not even sure who is calling it "racism" at this point.

At high school, for example, I used to see kids pulling their faces to widen their eyes and then say "look at me I'm Chinese". Is that racism?

I have to be honest, I really do not understand your point here.

If we are not talking about blackface as racism, what exactly are we talking about then?

No I don't call it racism but I'm not the one puting it in the news media either.

The redskins and the braves aren't racist to me either.

The only reason it's in the news is because it's election coverage time. He's hated and they're looking for anything to take him down. It's pathetic.
He should be replaced because he's an apologist twerp, that sucks at his job, not this issue.

If nobody thinks it is "racism", then who has labelled it as such? Journalists? Political opponents?

Would dressing as a Priest at a Halloween sex party be offensive to the Catholic Church? What if the media got hold of an image of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson dressed like this as a young man?

The Liberals surged in polls in 2015 (hence the victory). So, you're saying that he became hated during his term? (It couldn't have been before, right?)

A distraction from this perhaps?

Canada: 'Much more to be told' on Trudeau scandal, says minister who quit

I haven't been following Canadian politics closely. Has Jane Philpott been telling "much more" or did that somehow go away?

His bad decisions have made him quite hated. I'm not sure what your point is.

The only reason this makes the news is that supposedly someone is offended.

And yes, dressing as a priest at a Halloween sex party would likely offend Catholics.
I have no clue how the Brits react to blackface.
You would need to ask a European.

Am I the only one who has never been to a Halloween sex party? Is that a new thing? Am I just that lame?
So many questions.
