That's him with the turban (almost invisible, isn't he):

So now that a bunch of lefties have appeared in blackface, are we officially OK with the practice?

"But that was years ago!"

Wait, are you saying that how long ago something happened makes a difference? Wow, that sure is a change....

It's a cultural thing -- like when the prophet Mohammed married an eight-year old girl (he was over 50) it was not considered pedophilia or child abuse. People in the Muslim cultures still seem to think nothing of it.

Trudeau just want to move south and run for governor of Virginia next. As long as he declares as a Democrat it should be just fine.



EXCLUSIVE: Video shows Trudeau in blackface in 3rd instance of racist makeup

Global News has obtained video showing Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in blackface, the third instance of racist dress to come to light in 12 hours.

The video was shot in the early 1990s, however it’s not clear where it takes place.

The video, obtained exclusively by Global News, shows Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He’s wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well.

It does not appear the video was shot at the same time and place as the other photos of Trudeau in racist makeup that have emerged in the past 24 hours.

Strange how no one complains of the white man wearing an Arab keffiyeh.

What's weird is that, in the U.S., Arabs are considered white, according to the Census Bureau.

Worldwide, most Muslims are black.

There are a lot of Muslims in sub-Saharan (Black/non Arab) Africa.

But the greatest number of the worlds Muslims are neither Black nor Arab, but live in Southeast Asia, in countries like Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Trudeau is the Canadian Obama — an empty suit that the Left projects itself onto.

Given that the court of public opinion seems to have superseded the court of law in large swaths of society, I think he should resign now. Anything less would be a hypocritical double standard....

Seriously, what kind of people did stuff like this in whenever this was — 1990s? 2000s? I'm much older than Justin Trudeau, I grew up in evilracistsexist America, and I've never in my life seen someone wearing blackface. The only blackface I've ever "seen" has been ancient clips on TV of Al Jolson or something like that from the '20s or '30s (and Bugs Bunny cartoons from the '40s or '50s parodying Jolson).

I wonder what he's done wrong to anger the masters? The media protects their own. It's unusual when they depose one of their own.

This reminds me of a terrible joke - of many - from back in the 90's.

Pitch: Why is there an orange man standing in my front yard?

Punchline: Because he's my snowboarding ivy league social climber and I'll paint him whatever color I want.

[quote="Darmok"][/quote]
Darmok, I had to cut out your post because the filter wouldn't let me reply for some reason. <shrug>

We were all young and dumb when we were, err, young and dumb.
This applies to both sides of the political divide.

At one time slavery was considered valid by many people in Amerikan history.

To attribute moral integrity as a naturally dominant aspect of inherent human psychology is more than a little naive.
Moral dominance seems to be a manifestation of cultural constructs/memes.
This is in conflict with primordial instincts which embrace corruption, simple power satiation, simple self-interest and dominance to establish and maintain personal safety/security.

And the 64 thousand dollar question:
Can Pepe reconcile what he has said above with the political incorrectness shown by: "Canada's Blackface Prime Minister"?
Spoiler: Yes, I think he can. :mrgreen:

People are generally dishonest/partisan in a political context.
Human nature is often conveniently "forgotten" when it doesn't suit the political narrative.
People actively/consciously engage in reality buggery when it serves their confirmation bias.
Hypocrisy is an exceedingly frequent commodity used in the political arena.

Re-evaluation of Pepe's likelihood of making a coherent/cogent point:
Downgraded from "overweight" to "neutral".

Erm. :scratch:
My point is that there is no absolute moral compass embedded in our genetic coding.
My point it that there are different/conflicting emotional/intellectual factors involved in socio-psychological interaction.
My point is that to a large extent, moral social protocols are arbitrary in nature.
My point is that the social zeitgeist is influenced by the prevalent intellectual constructs at the time.
My point is that social intellectual constructs/memes do change over time.
My point is, at different points of the cultural evolutionary timeline, behaviours can change from acceptable to unacceptable, and potentially back again.

In a nutshell:
People aren't infallible.
People make mistakes.
Life is simple for simple people and some animals.

I could go on but I don't think *anyone* wants that. :mrgreen:
So yeah,
There you have it. :wink:

He is Canadian.
They didn't have the same cultural history that you did, my conservative brother. ;)
Different cultures have different cultural sensitivities.

Australia is in a similar boat as Canada.
Though we here have been somewhat educated by the global media, I am still, as presumably many others in Oz, not sure the correct way to address a person of colour, as an example.

What a lot of people willfully ignore is the attitude behind the act.
This is a manifestation of political bias or simple ignorance.
It is also a tool of partisanship which is inherently deceptive in nature.

We conservatives tend to be comfortable with free and open discussion even if it is in variance to each other.
No offence was intended. <big wet kiss> :mrgreen:

P.S.
I have an opinion on the pile-on by some on the left, but that is for another post. ;)
