Hypocrite, and it looks good on you Justin! – The spectacular moral fall of Prime Minister Blackface

September 2019

Just when you thought the bar on Justin Trudeau’s moral compass couldn’t sink any lower, it has.

A photo emerged two days ago of Justin Trudeau from 2001, dressed as Aladdin in full-on blackface and a turban at an Arabian Nights gala at West Point Grey Academy, a private school in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Well, well! So the incredibly perfect and “woke” Justin Trudeau, who has already been exposed as a fake male feminist, has now been exposed as a “racially sensitive” hypocrite.

The fact that he dressed up in blackface is just ONE issue here. Nobody is perfect, and we have all done things in the past that we now regret, but when you pretend that you are perfect and scold others for their behaviour, both past and present, including calling others racist for simply disagreeing with him, you had better make sure there are no skeletons in your closet.

Trudeau has positioned himself as the champion of social justice, inclusivity and diversity. He has spent so much time telling us how morally superior he is and how racist and intolerant the rest of us are, and he has now been exposed as a massive hypocrite.

I get that people and their attitudes change. We’ve all heard of former white supremacists who have renounced their former lives and are doing what they can to make amends for their past; of those who were intolerant of homosexuality or gay marriage, who now realize they were wrong and are now supporters of the LGBT community.

If Trudeau had come out years ago and admitted to doing this, or more recently when American Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being rightly crucified for his own blackface photo, or when American television presenter and journalist Megan Kelly lost her career for just talking about blackface, and apologized for it, that would be a different story. Could those revelations not prompted Trudeau that he should come clean. Sure, he still would have been heavily criticized, and rightly so, but as former American President Richard Nixon found out the hard way, sometimes it’s not the crime itself, but the cover-up that will take you down.

The truth is Trudeau only admitted and apologized for it when he got caught the FIRST time! Yes, the FIRST time. At that initial press conference, which I heard live, he admitted to ONE further blackface incident. Well less than a day later, Global News unearthed a video of him not only in blackface, but also waiving his arms around like an ape!

By the way, also exposed for blackface photos this year were Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.

Now Global News is reporting that La Presse in Montreal have found a 4th photo and that there is “more to come.” At what point does a “youthful indiscretion” (although even at 29 years old, he still should have known better) that you deeply regret and apologize for, become a pattern of behaviour? What’s coming next?

We don’t need to rehash all the other scandals and embarrassing situations that Justin has been involved in, but many, many people have lost their careers and been ostracized for far less than what Trudeau has done over the last 4 years. If he had any honour, he would resign now and go away. Personally, I hope he sticks around so I can watch him go down in flames on Election Day, but if I was a Liberal, I’d want him gone now. Bottom line, he is a liar, a hypocrite and a disgraceful person.

All of you who have demanded other politicians, or more correctly right-wing politicians, be crucified for similar transgressions, need to apply the same standard here.

Re-elect the Liberal Party if you want my fellow Canadians, but do you really want a man who makes a complete fool of himself, both nationally and internationally, over and over again, as your head of government? If my fellow Canadians think he still deserves to be Prime Minister after this revelation, then there is no hope for this county.

On a positive note, maybe the Liberals will stop digging up 14 year old videos of Conservative leader Andrew Sheer voicing an opinion that many other people shared, including Liberals, or claiming without foundation that Sheer will ban gay marriage and re-criminalize abortions, and start talking about policies. The bar has lowered far enough.

On a related issue, I’m betting that anyone who can come forward with either a photo or a verifiable account of Donald Trump in blackface will become a very, very rich person. Isn’t it ironic that the man who everyone, including Trudeau, calls a racist doesn’t appear to have ever done blackface, or anything overtly racist. Now is the time to come forward if you have such information.

TRUDEAU MUST GO

Well, well! So the incredibly perfect and ‘woke’ Justin Trudeau, who has already been exposed as a fake male feminist, has now been exposed as a ‘racially sensitive’ hypocrite. Nobody is perfect, and we have all done things in the past that we now regret, but when you pretend that you are perfect and scold others for their behaviour, both past and present, you had better make sure there are no skeletons in your closet. We don’t need to rehash all the other scandals and embarrassing situations that Justin has been involved in, some of which would have destroyed most political careers long ago, but if my fellow Canadians think he still deserves to be prime minister after this revelation, then there is no hope for this country. All of you who have demanded other politicians, or more correctly right-wing politicians, be crucified for similar transgressions need to apply the same standard here. Re-elect the Liberal Party if you want, my fellow Canadians, but Justin Trudeau should either resign or be forced out by the caucus. Do you really want a man who makes a complete fool of himself, both nationally and internationally, over and over again, as your head of government?

(We agree with you that it is up to Canadians to decide if someone like Trudeau is fit to lead our country. Traditional liberal voters who are already supportive of him will continue to stand behind them. But what will be interesting is where the so-called progressives park their vote)
