I know this sounds stupid, but I rather enjoy seeing the Prime Minister of Canada play dress-up.

Oh, look, now he’s a Pandit. Now he’s a Musketeer.

Wheelchair volleyball? Why not!

Now he’s a boxer!

Actually, he wasn’t bad as a boxer:

Canadian culture places a high value upon punching guys in the face,

and Trudeau was surprisingly good at it. In fact, his punching out a Tory politician who had been a bouncer launched him toward his current eminence.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized Thursday over his growing blackface scandal but stopped short of saying whether there were more pictures or videos of him dressed up in darkened makeup. "I am wary of being definitive about this," he said during a news conference in Winnipeg.

    I'd pay good money to see him do that to Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler.

    Say what you will about Trump, he doesn't play dress up. Even as a pro-wrestler, his garb is dark suit, red tie, white shirt. Even in the many and varied roles in which the Progressives cast him--white supremacist, sexual predator, Islamophobe, transphobe, nativist, Putin operative, etc.--he always appears as himself. Also, unlike Hillary or Obama, he doesn't do dialect when addressing black audiences.
    , @Ibound1
    That just made me want to vote for Trump another ten times. I certainly prefer this to Hillary pretending to be a black preacher. That is a real minstrel show - in a church - and not nearly as entertaining.

  12. All the blackface stuff is just the usual PC silliness. This isn’t a Minstrel Show (I can sympathize for people who say they are offensive). This is just a costume party.

    If there is any good to come out of this it’s the fact that since Trudeau will get a pass on this, we’ll hopefully see an end to everyone getting the vapors about costumes people wore decades ago.

    What bothers me (and the black hand makeup clearly shows) is that Trudeau is getting pretty handsy with a high school student. Makes Joe Biden look like a celibate monk. How come no one has mentioned that? Did I miss the memo about the #MeToo witch-hunt being over?

    So did Virginia governor Northam:

    ______________

    Ralph Northam, life in brief:

    - born Sept. 1959, Virginia;
    - 1977-1984: Student at Virginia Military Institute (VMI) and then at a Virginia medical school (MD, 1984) -- During some of these years, he attended costume parties at which he dressed up in blackface;
    - 1984 to 1992: medical officer, US Army;
    - Nov. 2007: elected to Virginia state senate as a Democrat, launching political career;
    - Nov. 2017: elected governor of Virginia (Democrat), a position limited to a single term, which for him is to be Jan. 2018 to Jan. 2022;
    - Feb. 2019: exposed as a 1980s-era blackface user (apparently by abortion opponents angry about Northam's comments on abortion), leading to Fox News and racial left-wingers alike to call for him to resign;
    - By spring 2019: Northam had survived the "coalition-of-the-fringes" blackface scandal that persisted for several weeks. He will serve out term through Jan. 2022.

    Minstrel shows were America’s premiere form of popular entertainment in the 19th Century until Vaudeville came along. Why deny they ever existed? Why be offended by them? Blacks used to enjoy them the way rural whites loved Hee Haw on late 60s network TV. If anything, they helped whites develop empathy for blacks.

One of the funnier aspects of this is the desperation with which the Leftist press is trying to avoid the word “blackface”, substituting “brownface”, etc. Presumably they don’t want people to search for “blackface” and get a page full of results for their hero, Trudeau.

    You welcome:

    White man with ‘4 percent African DNA’ who is fighting to be legally recognized as black says he even subscribes to Ebony Magazine – and he ‘feels sorry’ for race faker Rachel Dolezal and ‘wished he could have told her that all she had to do was identify’

    However, critics don’t believe he’s actually trying to expose flaws in a political system. HuffPost Black Voices Editor Taryn Finley (pictured) said:

    ‘Being able to tip-toe back and forth across a line between now I’m Black, now I’m white, now I’m multiracial, that’s not identity’*

  21. Off-Topic:

    Meanwhile in the World of Open Software, which becomes Less Open as soon as outfits like ICE (who runs concentration camps, AOC photo ops, and possibly soap factories) use it:

    Devops biz Chef roasted for tech contract with family-separating US immigration, forks up attempt to quash protest: Software house hits nuclear option after popular Ruby code yanked for moral reasons

    TL;DR Developer Seth Vargo who develops Chef-Sugar rips said package off the Internet (pointless as it has been released under the Apache License) because “Chef” (the company) uses that package and has entered into a contract with ICE.

    Loud banging in the Safe Space ensues when 1) Other users of Chef-Sugar suddenly have trouble with their software which is looking for the original packages (sane package caching? we have heard of it) 2) “Chef” (the company) rebuilds the missing packages and sanitizes it while doing so: The company took the decision to fork and rename Vargo’s software, and also relabel the author of the copied software as Chef. For example, references to Vargo as author and maintainer were replaced with “Chef Software, Inc” in the forked Chef-Sugar. (unethical IMHO).

  26. Justin Trudeau is just a vapid rich boy, of course he dressed in black face where it wasn’t necessary before.

    What I love is that he did it for Aladdin. Aladdin, I’ve never seen or heard of anyone white thinking they need to darken their face to dress up as Aladdin, the whole point is he is a light-skinned Persian.

    It’s a bit like when Prince Harry got caught in an SA uniform when the theme was ‘Colonials and Natives’, it didn’t even fit the theme, he wanted to dress up in an SA uniform that badly. Likewise, Trudeau has put on a huge amount of shoe polish on his face to no longer even be clear he is supposed to be Aladdin, he wanted to do black face that badly.

    Steve also left out the best bit, Trudeau pre-emptively had to admit he also may have done this for a high school play too, just incase anyone has a picture of that too. I never got the appeal of blackface, but then I never got the appeal of vapid rich boys either.

    I think a 25 year old Trump would beat a 25 year old Trudeau. No way to actually prove it but Trump having went to military school, being athletic, and growing up on the streets of NY talking shit and not being the kind of guy who takes crap from anyone. He's probably been in a number of fist fights and came out on the winning side more often than not. He has too much alpha confidence to suspect otherwise.

    French-speaking Canada is decidedly less bent out of shape about this. I have to wonder though how many normal Anglo Canadians are worked up about this either? In any case, "official" English-speaking Canada is choosing to take this seriously while Yves-François Blanchet (of the Bloc Quebecois) and Maxime Bernier (of the People's Party of Canada) have said either that it's just a distraction or:

    “I’m not going to accuse Justin Trudeau of being a racist. But he’s the master of identity politics and the Libs just spent months accusing everyone of being white supremacists. He is definitely the biggest hypocrite in the country."

    All the blackface stuff is just the usual PC silliness. This isn’t a Minstrel Show (I can sympathize for people who say they are offensive). This is just a costume party.

    If there is any good to come out of this it’s the fact that since Trudeau will get a pass on this, we’ll hopefully see an end to everyone getting the vapors about costumes people wore decades ago.

    What bothers me (and the black hand makeup clearly shows) is that Trudeau is getting pretty handsy with a high school student. Makes Joe Biden look like a celibate monk. How come no one has mentioned that? Did I miss the memo about the #MeToo witch-hunt being over?

    “…we’ll hopefully see an end to everyone getting the vapors about costumes people wore decades ago.”

    Are you kidding? This shit’s just getting warmed up. Trudeau will get a pass because, like Macron, he’s a globalist puppet. Pretty much anyone else not named Trudeau would have their life and career ruined.

  42. He was also asked if there are additional photos or racist incidents that Canadians to be aware of. Trudeau responded by saying he has “always been more enthusiastic about costumes than is sometimes appropriate.” Trudeau says this calls for more “important conversations.”

  50. Steve Sailer gets a big kick out of globalizer turd Trudeau and his duds.

    Steve Sailer in 2018:

    I would include a picture of the Prime Minister saying this if he had dressed up for the occasion as a leprechaun or Maori warrior or Oktoberfest yodeler or Yanomamo shaman, but he was wearing a white shirt and red tie, so if he’s not going to make the effort to entertain us, I’m not going to bother either.

    I wrote this in 2018:

    How about that horrible mass immigration fanatic, globalizer thug Justin Trudeau dress up as a De Souch or Pure Laine?

    The French term pure laine, literally meaning pure wool (and often translated as dyed-in-the-wool), refers to those whose ancestry is exclusively French-Canadian. (It probably relates to the raising of sheep for wool, which was common in rural Quebec of the 1700s.) Some definitions are more specific, indicating those whose families arrived in Canada during a specific period, with a lineage that is 100 per cent derived from New France (1534 to 1763) settlers.

    Terms with a similar meaning include de souche (of the base of the tree, or root) and old stock as in “Old Stock Canadians”).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pure_laine

    I also wrote this in 2018:

    Justin Trudeau is an evil globalizer thug who wants to destroy Canada as a home for the European Christian people. Trudeau has made it clear that the historic Canada of Anglo-Saxons and Anglo-Celts and French Quebecois must be ripped up by the roots to be supplanted by Multicultural Mayhem Canada.

    Trudeau is just as much of a banker boy globalizer whore as that nasty little rat Macron in France.

    Marine Le Pen has more heart and guts in one of her fingers than Trudeau or Macron have in their entire body.

    The globalized corporate media is trying to make Macron the face of globalization and mass immigration and financialization and multiculturalism for Europe. The globalized corporate media is trying to advance the rancid fop boy Trudeau as the face of globalization and mass immigration and financialization and multiculturalism for the New World.

    Canada is a resource cartel, much like Australia. Both Canada and Australia will economically collapse when interest rate rise and the asset bubbles pop. That is when mass repatriation will be deployed in Canada and Australia to counteract the troubles caused by mass immigration.

  51. I am offended, grievously offended I say, by the premise of this entire iSteve posting and comment thread.

    In the Prime Minister’s case, an intellectually disabled person should be able to do things commensurate with their abilities without ridicule, censure or scolding.

Even though it was restricted to headgear it's still too risky, as Dukakis discovered when he tried to revive it), and at one international conference where the costumes are very carefully chosen, never too exotic, and all the leaders wear them together at the same photo op.

    Did Pierre Trudeau invent multiculturalism or just see that it was the up and coming trend and so sign Canada onto it ? Canada was an early adopter but do you really think that it wouldn’t be a thing without Trudeau ?

    • Replies: @foulkes
    Trudeau brought in a multiculturalism policy in the early seventies to dilute Quebec nationalism
    He wrote an autobiography in the 90s. He mentioned everything in his book- his upbringing, his education, his travels, his education, the Quiet Revolution, his academic career, Quebec separatism , his political career, the National Energy Policy, bilingualism . Not a word about multiculturalism. He knew it was a failure back then
  74. Trudeau will survive this scandal. He will also win a slim majority or else a minority government next month. Maxime Bernier’s party is going to split the right-of-center vote in this country to ensure a Liberal win, much like Reform did in 1993, 1997 and 2000.

    This brownface scandal will haunt him in the future though. It’s quite embarrassing and many people in the SJW pundit class are on the edge.

    Agreed.The people who voted for him (women) won't be bothered by this at all and will vote for him anyway because he's still soooo dreamy.

    And really it's for the best in the long run that the Liberals win and the two alternative right wing parties split the votes that the Conservatives were going to get. Does it make a difference anyway? The Conservatives would govern about 3mm. to the right of the Liberals. In Canada, as everywhere else in the west, traditional conservative parties have been losing since the Sixties. Time to give someone else a try.

    Personally, I'm going to vote for Bernier's PPC. I'd rather use my one, nearly irrelevant vote to indicate that his platform has some supporters. If the Conservatives weren't such cucks, I wouldn't be thinking this way.

    All the blackface stuff is just the usual PC silliness. This isn’t a Minstrel Show (I can sympathize for people who say they are offensive). This is just a costume party.

    If there is any good to come out of this it’s the fact that since Trudeau will get a pass on this, we’ll hopefully see an end to everyone getting the vapors about costumes people wore decades ago.

    What bothers me (and the black hand makeup clearly shows) is that Trudeau is getting pretty handsy with a high school student. Makes Joe Biden look like a celibate monk. How come no one has mentioned that? Did I miss the memo about the #MeToo witch-hunt being over?

    This isn’t a Minstrel Show (I can sympathize for people who say they are offensive).

    Minstrel shows were America’s premiere form of popular entertainment in the 19th Century until Vaudeville came along. Why deny they ever existed? Why be offended by them? Blacks used to enjoy them the way rural whites loved Hee Haw on late 60s network TV. If anything, they helped whites develop empathy for blacks.

  80. Rick Mercer, who is something like a Maritime Stephen Colbert but original and not stupid, got his own show after some time on the Canadian news satire This Hour Has 22 Minutes. He once did an on-the-street segment in which he happens upon of all people Justin Trudeau. This was either before Trudeau had a political career or when he was just getting started and could really do with some mass media visibility. Trudeau was the son of a controversial prime minister, and his offering to the satirist was to tell him to pull his shirt collar of the jacket out to be sexier.

    Politicians mostly do that when they are visiting foreign countries that have exotic costumes. Isn’t there a classic shot of Prince Phillip wearing a South Pacific grass skirt over his Savile Row bespoke suit?
    For domestic campaigning politicians usually settle for wearing ethnic head ware and having a bite of the local food. Going all out complete with makeup is beyond the pale.

    Politicians are normally sensibly concerned with respectability. I am aware of only two situations in which they embrace costumes: when campaigning (really in the 1920s; they do not do this any more. Even though it was restricted to headgear it’s still too risky, as Dukakis discovered when he tried to revive it), and at one international conference where the costumes are very carefully chosen, never too exotic, and all the leaders wear them together at the same photo op.

Trumpy shines his own shoes and he always tucks his shirt in. It must have bothered Trump to wear that Asian untucked slob shirt. I guess it’s good for hot Asian weather.

    You have to give Trudeau credit. I would look like a clown in 90% of those costumes but he carries it off, every time. I think he has the perfect lack of self awareness required not to be the slightest bit embarrassed.

    I do love that the new category "brownface" was invented just for him. We all know that putting on blackface is a mortal sin, but brownface is forgivable, right?

    So, how do the non-political, political scandals sometimes bring down politicians if nobody cares about them?

    I explained, you can’t argue against it but political opponents will use it to attack even though they don’t care about it either. It’s all kabuki theatre. A prominent example would be Elliot Spitzer. Is anyone actually more concerned with punishing him than whether serious financial crimes go punished? No, of course, not and the fact that he was indispensable in doing that was why it all got leaked.

  98. I have to disagree. This will help Bernier a little, but the great majority of right-leaning people and normies have written off his “People’s Party” as a fringe cult obsessed with immigration (which, while out-of-control pretty much everywhere in the Western world, has still been managed better in Canada than almost anywhere else). They’re nowhere near where Reform was in the 90s. That the Conservatives were slightly ahead of the Liberals in general polling going into this election, despite the existence of the PPC, really shows how weak the Liberals were (much more so than they should have been one term in). And that was before any of this blackface stuff broke.

    Most right-of-centre voters in Canada remember ’93, ’97, and ’00 too well to risk a repeat. Many of those too far gone to care live in places where the Conservatives have such a huge lead that it probably won’t make a difference.

    The left in Canada outnumbers the right 3-to-1, but it also has a structural three-way split between the Liberals, Greens, and NDP. The classic Liberal trick is to scare left-of-centre voters into voting for them over the other two parties (both of which, before Trudeau Jr. came along, were consistently further left than the Liberals) by painting anyone even vaguely right-oriented as a crypo-Nazi/Dominionist/emissary of Gilead. These photos damage the credibility of Liberal propaganda on that front, at least for this election, to an unprecedented degree.

    After 72 hours the Liberals are still stalled by this. The SJW punditry can’t let them move on, even if they would like to (prior to Wednesday they were 110% in the tank for Trudeau), because the individual need for each pundit to signal virtue is simply too strong. If there’s any hint that the Liberals might be dead in the water over this, the feeding frenzy on the Left will begin and strategic voting strategies on the left will fall into disarray. The right will remain sufficiently united behind the Conservatives to benefit.

    That’s my take; although I will admit that, if you’re right and I’m wrong, Canada is probably doomed. If the PPC fails to win a single seat (very possible), then its disaffected elements can be reincorporated under the Conservative banner, provided that the Conservatives take the opportunity to address internal issues and roll back political correctness without alienating immigrant constituencies. The Conservative in Canada are actually fully competitive with 1st generation legal immigrants; it’s their kids born in Canada, who get indoctrinated by (mostly) white liberals in the Canadian education system into believing they’re oppressed intersectional victims, that present a potentially fatal challenge to the future of the great right North. The right needs to be united and to implement some sort of “Phase 2” plan to deprogram the minds of 2nd-gen voters. Highlighting currently insane levels of white guilt among the commentariat (who are now calling for a permanent mortgage on the economic future of young white, black, and brown Canadians so they can throw infinite money into the sinkhole of Indigenous Affairs) might be a promising place to start. But if the PPC wins even a single seat and sticks around then the Canadian right will be split for the foreseeable future, and it just can’t afford a split.

    Justin Trudeau is just a vapid rich boy, of course he dressed in black face where it wasn't necessary before.

    What I love is that he did it for Aladdin. Aladdin, I've never seen or heard of anyone white thinking they need to darken their face to dress up as Aladdin, the whole point is he is a light-skinned Persian.

    It's a bit like when Prince Harry got caught in an SA uniform when the theme was 'Colonials and Natives', it didn't even fit the theme, he wanted to dress up in an SA uniform that badly. Likewise, Trudeau has put on a huge amount of shoe polish on his face to no longer even be clear he is supposed to be Aladdin, he wanted to do black face that badly.

    Steve also left out the best bit, Trudeau pre-emptively had to admit he also may have done this for a high school play too, just incase anyone has a picture of that too. I never got the appeal of blackface, but then I never got the appeal of vapid rich boys either.

    Things aren't quite as rosy on the left as you assume. Tension between moderate leftists and the far left is increasing in most western countries. In Europe this is reflected in steadily declining support for the centre-left and increasing support for the far left greens. Trudeau positioned himself as a hybrid candidate who could appeal to the identity politics left without unduly worrying big business and messing up the economy. If he fails to maintain this careful balancing act he will get voted out.

The farmer was dead to rights to shoot him, but the PM and the justice minister all but came out and said it was the wrong verdict and that changes would be made to the jury selection process to see that this would not happen in the future. Farmer was forced to sell off and move due to intimidation from the local reserve, a well known den of criminality. Plus the hanky-panky related to letting SNC Lavalin off easy for shenanigans in Libya, although to be fair, I can’t see why Canadian companies should be the holy fools who refuse to grease palms to get business when every other company on earth was doing the same thing.

    Having said that, I can’t quite work up any outrage over this whole bit of blackface nonsense. Still, live by the SJWord, die by the SJWord I suppose.

    There was a false rumor that the Toronto Star had a profane and racist rap video from Trudy's college days, which, even if it were true, would probably not affect his career in the slightest. If Justin Trudeau were shown to have eaten a baby as part of a Satanic ritual he would make an impassioned apology and insist that's not who he is, as he wiped his lips with a napkin, and the lefties on twitter would insist that the conservatives were far worse anyhow.
    We're tolerating Trump because a lot of what is said about him is wildly false and because we've got nobody else. Canadian liberals have alternatives in the face of real problems, but stick with Trudy because of ... I don't know, momentum?

    Did Pierre Trudeau invent multiculturalism or just see that it was the up and coming trend and so sign Canada onto it ? Canada was an early adopter but do you really think that it wouldn't be a thing without Trudeau ?

    Trudeau brought in a multiculturalism policy in the early seventies to dilute Quebec nationalism
    He wrote an autobiography in the 90s. He mentioned everything in his book- his upbringing, his education, his travels, his education, the Quiet Revolution, his academic career, Quebec separatism , his political career, the National Energy Policy, bilingualism . Not a word about multiculturalism. He knew it was a failure back then

  124. OT: Star witness in Trayvon Martin case was a fraud
    https://www.thetrayvonhoax.com/
    https://www.press.org/events/press-conference-and-film-screening-trayvon-hoax

    An independent investigative journalist acquired Trayvon Martin’s phone records, uncovered a huge witness fraud at the heart of the Trayvon Martin case, and just released a book and documentary about it.

    Summary: Trayvon was on the phone with a girlfriend in the moments leading up to his encounter with Zimmerman. The person he was on the phone with, Diamond Eugene, was in fact cheating on her official boyfriend with Trayvon. Therefore Diamond wanted to keep out of the case. But Trayvon’s family, friends, and lawyers aggressively pursued her and finally got her to give a deposition over the phone. When the lawyers wanted to bring Diamond in for in-person questioning, she freaked out and sent her (literally) mentally retarded and illiterate half-sister to impersonate her (Rachel Jeantel for anyone who remembers) and commit perjury. The fraud was known to Trayvon’s mother and almost certainly to the lawyers, who basically dictated Jeantel’s testimony to her, but they allowed her to pretend to be Diamond Eugene in court anyway. At the time of the trial it was evident that Jeantel’s testimony was inconsistent, and it was clear that she was probably lying about some things. But to my knowledge no one until this investigator had suggested that she was in fact impersonating the real witness.

    I watched the documentary yesterday and it was excellent except for some cringey “Dems R the Real Racists” messaging that is gracelessly grafted onto the end of the film. The journalist, Joel Gilbert, held a press conference at the National Press Club on Sept 16th, but I haven’t seen any large media organization pick up this story (not even Breitbart…). Unless I’m missing something, it looks to be a serious demonstration of fraud and probably prosecutorial misconduct. It deserves to be signal boosted everywhere.

    I have to disagree. This will help Bernier a little, but the great majority of right-leaning people and normies have written off his "People's Party" as a fringe cult obsessed with immigration (which, while out-of-control pretty much everywhere in the Western world, has still been managed better in Canada than almost anywhere else). They're nowhere near where Reform was in the 90s. That the Conservatives were slightly ahead of the Liberals in general polling going into this election, despite the existence of the PPC, really shows how weak the Liberals were (much more so than they should have been one term in). And that was before any of this blackface stuff broke.

    Most right-of-centre voters in Canada remember '93, '97, and '00 too well to risk a repeat. Many of those too far gone to care live in places where the Conservatives have such a huge lead that it probably won't make a difference.

    The left in Canada outnumbers the right 3-to-1, but it also has a structural three-way split between the Liberals, Greens, and NDP. The classic Liberal trick is to scare left-of-centre voters into voting for them over the other two parties (both of which, before Trudeau Jr. came along, were consistently further left than the Liberals) by painting anyone even vaguely right-oriented as a crypo-Nazi/Dominionist/emissary of Gilead. These photos damage the credibility of Liberal propaganda on that front, at least for this election, to an unprecedented degree.

    After 72 hours the Liberals are still stalled by this. The SJW punditry can't let them move on, even if they would like to (prior to Wednesday they were 110% in the tank for Trudeau), because the individual need for each pundit to signal virtue is simply too strong. If there's any hint that the Liberals might be dead in the water over this, the feeding frenzy on the Left will begin and strategic voting strategies on the left will fall into disarray. The right will remain sufficiently united behind the Conservatives to benefit.

    That's my take; although I will admit that, if you're right and I'm wrong, Canada is probably doomed. If the PPC fails to win a single seat (very possible), then its disaffected elements can be reincorporated under the Conservative banner, provided that the Conservatives take the opportunity to address internal issues and roll back political correctness without alienating immigrant constituencies. The Conservative in Canada are actually fully competitive with 1st generation legal immigrants; it's their kids born in Canada, who get indoctrinated by (mostly) white liberals in the Canadian education system into believing they're oppressed intersectional victims, that present a potentially fatal challenge to the future of the great right North. The right needs to be united and to implement some sort of "Phase 2" plan to deprogram the minds of 2nd-gen voters. Highlighting currently insane levels of white guilt among the commentariat (who are now calling for a permanent mortgage on the economic future of young white, black, and brown Canadians so they can throw infinite money into the sinkhole of Indigenous Affairs) might be a promising place to start. But if the PPC wins even a single seat and sticks around then the Canadian right will be split for the foreseeable future, and it just can't afford a split.

    So, if I'm understanding this correctly, blackface is verboten, but blackvoice isn't (e.g., "I ain't no ways tarred!" or "They gonna put y'all back in chains!")

    blackvoice isn’t (e.g., “I ain’t no ways tarred!”

    But that isn’t inherently black. The great Loretta Lynn in one of her first songs quite unironically rhymed “work hard” with “we was tired” because that’s the way she pronounced the words. And she was, and is, very white.

    Trudeau will survive this scandal. He will also win a slim majority or else a minority government next month. Maxime Bernier's party is going to split the right-of-center vote in this country to ensure a Liberal win, much like Reform did in 1993, 1997 and 2000.

    This brownface scandal will haunt him in the future though. It's quite embarrassing and many people in the SJW pundit class are on the edge.

    His days of playing dress-up are probably done.

    Personally, I’m going to vote for Bernier’s PPC. I’d rather use my one, nearly irrelevant vote to indicate that his platform has some supporters. If the Conservatives weren’t such cucks, I wouldn’t be thinking this way.

    Agreed.The people who voted for him (women) won't be bothered by this at all and will vote for him anyway because he's still soooo dreamy.

    And really it's for the best in the long run that the Liberals win and the two alternative right wing parties split the votes that the Conservatives were going to get. Does it make a difference anyway? The Conservatives would govern about 3mm. to the right of the Liberals. In Canada, as everywhere else in the west, traditional conservative parties have been losing since the Sixties. Time to give someone else a try.

    Things aren’t quite as rosy on the left as you assume. Tension between moderate leftists and the far left is increasing in most western countries. In Europe this is reflected in steadily declining support for the centre-left and increasing support for the far left greens. Trudeau positioned himself as a hybrid candidate who could appeal to the identity politics left without unduly worrying big business and messing up the economy. If he fails to maintain this careful balancing act he will get voted out.

    Professor Cheryl Thompson has studied the phenomenon of blackface in Canada, and she calls it “as Canadian as hockey”.

    While the genre of performance began in the US, she says, it was part of Canadian culture by the mid-1800s.

    “The only difference [between Canada and the US] is that we haven’t had a culture where we contend with race in terms of our national discourse,” she says.

    Ms Thompson says this incident is an opportunity to address “a knowledge gap” about Canada’s own history.

    “There is something about our culture that we are now being forced to confront in ways that we haven’t been asked to confront before.”

    On a personal level, Ms Thompson, who is black, says that as a longtime Liberal voter the images have given her pause.

    “How can I vote for someone who doesn’t seem to understand who I am as a person?

    “And I just think Justin Trudeau, for all the stuff that he says, I don’t think understands black and brown people as much as he says that he does.”

    Justin Trudeau is just a vapid rich boy, of course he dressed in black face where it wasn't necessary before.

    What I love is that he did it for Aladdin. Aladdin, I've never seen or heard of anyone white thinking they need to darken their face to dress up as Aladdin, the whole point is he is a light-skinned Persian.

    It's a bit like when Prince Harry got caught in an SA uniform when the theme was 'Colonials and Natives', it didn't even fit the theme, he wanted to dress up in an SA uniform that badly. Likewise, Trudeau has put on a huge amount of shoe polish on his face to no longer even be clear he is supposed to be Aladdin, he wanted to do black face that badly.

    Steve also left out the best bit, Trudeau pre-emptively had to admit he also may have done this for a high school play too, just incase anyone has a picture of that too. I never got the appeal of blackface, but then I never got the appeal of vapid rich boys either.

    Justin Trudeau just says he was portraying Aladdin because that is more palatable in PC Land than the truth, which is that he was in drag as a Blackamoor. He looks like Laurence Olivier doing “Othello,” for chrissakes.

  150. I remember watching the Brazeau charity boxing match, and when Trudeau won I said to my girlfriend “Damn, Justin Trudeau just became prime minister”. And lo and behold, it came to pass.

    The funny thing is that Brazeau kept getting in trouble for referring to Elizabeth Spence, Chief of the Attiwapiskat First Nation, as a fat white woman. The media was outraged that he would mock a woman of color.

    Meanwhile Trudeau was dressing up in blackface at every opportunity.

    I think that this is because the Canadian shield is full of lakes.

    I would think that beating the other guy was the basic test; all else is just tinsel. I suppose you think the fancy whip guy should have beat Indiana Jones. You sound like you're one of those guys who talks about "the sweet science" of boxing, and how beautiful Ali was dancing around, and other frippery. No homo, I'm sure.

    You sound like you are in need of some mental health care.

    I’m a trained boxer. If you would like to put your money where your ample mouth is we can step into a ring and I’ll show you why I enjoy boxing. Serious offer. I took Steve out to dinner a few years ago I enjoy meeting internet people in real life.

    Right. Justin Trudeau's boxing skills aren't impressive by the standard of Sugar Ray Leonard or the Klitschko Brothers, but keeping in mind that he's the son and heir of the most famous famous man in his country's history, I'm impressed.

    He’s Wayne Gretzky’s kid? Gretsky always struck me as pretty masculine, looks like he raised a poofster.

    I agree with most of what you say but I'd rather risk splitting the vote on the right than continue the way things are now. The Conservatives won't question our current mass immigration and multiculturalism policies so someone has to do it.

    I agree with you, Cagey, I’m voting PPC. The PC don’t stand a snowball’s chance in my riding. They aren’t even spending money for yard signs. If you live in the old city of Toronto and don’t want to vote Liberal you should vote NDP if you are a lefty or PPC if you’re an anti-establishment voter from the right.

  155. It is hilarious when an entire country which has been so smug about being all international, and ‘woke’ and all, wakes up to realizing that their leader really is a Monty Python actor/character. The most revolting thing about Trudeau, Jr., for me, is that he believes he has the right to govern people, actual people.

  156. Canadian culture places a high value upon punching guys in the face…

    Also on punching bears, too.

    Well, ((Zevon's)) version IS better than that oaf Stompin Tom's;

    Connors was a Canadian icon, but he had nothing else going for him, such as real songwriting talent. The real Canadian folk singer of merit, of course, was the also late Stan Rogers.

    I’d heard of Stompin’ Tom, but not the other guy. He’s really good vocally. Connors was a horrible hack, but that was his charm, to Canadians anyway.

  158. Hello Steve,

    Antifa appears to be interfering with Dave Rubin’s plans to do an event with PPC leader Maxime Bernier at Mohawk College in Hamilton.

  159. I know this sounds stupid, but I rather enjoy seeing the Prime Minister of Canada play dress-up.

    The very essence of the really imaginative man is that he realises the various types or capacities in which he can appear. Every one of us, or almost every one of us, does in reality fulfil almost as many offices as Pooh–Bah. Almost every one of us is a ratepayer, an immortal soul, an Englishman, a baptised person, a mammal, a minor poet, a juryman, a married man, a bicyclist, a Christian, a purchaser of newspapers, and a critic of Mr. Alfred Austin. We ought to have uniforms for all these things. How beautiful it would be if we appeared tomorrow in the uniform of a ratepayer, in brown and green, with buttons made in the shape of coins, and a blue income-tax paper tastefully arranged as a favour; or, again, if we appeared dressed as immortal souls, in a blue uniform with stars. It would be very exciting to dress up as Englishmen, or to go to a fancy dress ball as Christians.
