    Wow, he absolutely wrecked every candidate one after one, attack after attack. Mumbling Trudeau was absolutely hammered.

    I underestimated the charisma and intelligence of Bernier.

    He's really a threat to the establishment it seems.

     

    Bernier was the winner....but of course, no media would even come close to saying that!

     

    Lol.  I particularly loved that moment when he got Trudeau stumped with his 6%.

    I love it too when Bernier questioned Singh's so-called diversity stance and yet Singh can't abide any differences in opinion! 

     

    Singh is just another liar when he said Bernier was inciting hatred with his platform.   Either that, or Singh has problems understanding English!

    Maxine Bernier went to Hamilton and Leftist vermin did their best to show everyone what kind of mindset they had. That included deliberately standing in front of a little old lady in a walker to stop her from crossing the street while screaming 'Nazi scum!' at her.

    And the lefties here will call the Proud Boys extremists for wanting to deal with these subhumans.

    Amazing though that the CBC and CTV newsnet are both so quiet on this......hmmmmm......


  3. One journalist pointed out, now....even the mocking jokes he's made to indigenous protesters of mercury-poisoning, from Grassy Narrows, has taken on a serious meaning! 

    The underlying racism spontaneously bubbled out!

     

    Of course, there was also the treatment of Jody Wilson- Raybould.

    Yeah well Like I said I had that pegged by day 2 of his term in office.  

    AFAIC there's little he's done since that's made him any worse in comparison to any other politician who cleaves towards the already rich and powerful.  As I've said many times since his election I really don't understand what it is that conservatives find so offensive about him.  Just not right-wing enough I guess.

    Not to mention of course, he's definitely bombed now in the global community as the torch-bearer of progressive values!  He's lost all credibility!

    As one pundit had said, Canada is rarely on the front page in international news.   Black face Trudeau is front page everywhere!

    Let's face it:  he's an embarrasment!

    Huh.  I'd surely wanna hear the opinion of his big brother - Obama!

    I have seen other famous people wear blackface before and not been upset by it. I wouldn't immediately throw someone under a bus for doing it as long as they weren't doing things that reinforce racial stereotypes or just mock black people. 

    For me this is just about Trudeau's blatant hypocrisy. According to him anyone that did anything ten or twenty years ago has to bear that cross forever and they can never be forgiven and they're unfit for politics PERIOD!!!!!! Now that it's him it's suddenly time for forgiveness and understanding.

    Forget it. I get that this is a personal growth moment for him but like David Akin said, the PM job wasn't created just for him to work through his personal issues. We need someone who is already mature enough to be a leader, not a little imbecile who thinks that his little heart of gold is all we need.

    The hypocrisy is the biggest thing for me. Hypocrisy is my "nails on a chalkboard". One thing that I can't accept in a person.

     

    A visible minority lady from the National Post had explained what it is for her about this black face:  the deception.

    Answer my question then, why is it that when people complain about conservative politicians who lie the right wing response is laughing rolley-eyed emoticons and references to leftish political naivete?

    Its what politicians do, you said so yourself. So where do you get off whining about lying politicians now? You hit the nail on the head alright, this is about character your's included.

    :rolleyes:  You want an answer?   Create your own thread with that question, then.

     

    Yes, this issue is about character.  Read the OP again.

    This is about  character .   The character of Justin Trudeau.

     

    Not about me.  I'm not the PM, nor am I running for that office.  

    Stick to the topic, please.

    When I was a kid, my mom put me in blackface for a 4-H costume competition; I was a jockey for Archie Bunker stables.  Her intent wasn't to mock Black people, but to poke fun at an archetype represented by Archie Bunker.

     

    Eh?   Spare me your convoluted ramblings. :rolleyes:

    Archetype or not - a black person is black!  Whether they like it or not.........

    black is their "archetypical" color!

     

    Archie Bunker my foot -- your mom was poking fun at black people!


  8. 2 hours ago, dialamah said:

    Ok, are you calling my mother racist?  I wouldn't disagree, she was certainly a product of her time, as we all are.  :)

    If your mother made you up as black NUMEROUS times (the same way Trudeau did) - I'd say your mother isn't only racist!

    She must be a SUPREMACIST!

    I think by age 29, in the early 2000s, Trudeau ought to have known better and he showed poor judgement, but I do not believe it was malicious.

    The earlier examples, both from high school I believe, are entirely irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.  

    And, while I do believe Trudeau has lied about stuff, I don't think he lied about this.  People's memories are not perfect.  I think Trudeau only actually remembered one other occasion and disclosed it.  Not remembering the other (or others, if they exist) is not the same as lying.  

    Also, given your absolute and unshakable support for Trump, despite his many lies, your criticism of JT here seems remarkably hypocritical.

     

     

    How many times have your mother gave you a black face?   Three times, at least?

    As usual.....you're missing the point.

     

    Btw, I support Trump for a reason of my own.    This thread is not about Trump - so, stick to the issue.


  10.   Visible minorities.........please  pay attention.

    Just contemplate on this loaded statement.

     

     
    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized again on Thursday for wearing blackface in three separate incidents and said he did not know how many times he had put on racist makeup.

    Justin Trudeau says he does not know how many times he's worn blackface in his life - CNN

     

    The fact that Trudeau cannot be confident enough to say that there were only those three times means,  the Liberal Party isn't sure if there would be more photos or videos, or tape recordings that could come out! What it means though is, those were not the only times he did something racist!

    Heck, who knows - maybe he dressed up like a Chinese/Japanese (complete with slanted eyes), or had parodied talking like a Pakistani or an Indian!

    If you're confident those three were the only times - and you're confident that no way anyone could produce anything authentic besides those three that we know of - then, you would have said so!

    The fact that Trudeau is trying to "cover his butt" by saying "I don't know how many times....." means, he did it more than those three times!




    Just because a politician is making policies that seem to be visible minority-friendly, doesn't mean a politician
    isn't racist.
    It could very well mean......

    ..........having the power (as an MP, or as a PM)......... is simply the goal!


    After all, politicians are known to lie......... just to get votes!

     

     

    Don't listen to the comment by visible minority Liberal Party caucus - giving excuses for Justin Trudeau.
    They are politicians, too! Under the LIBERAL banner!

    What do you expect them to say?


  11. Liberal-friendly media, are doing their own damage control!  They're putting a spin on why Trudeau says he doesn't recall how many times.  They say, it's  normal for political parties to try to cover their butts if they're unsure of any other photos that may or may not come out.

    In other words, Trudeau cannot confidently say that those were the only times he made racist parodies.  That's the shallow explanation by the media.

       

    Here's the most believable - the logical one:

     

    He volunteered his high school blackface during his first apology - when he was asked if there were more. He should've come out clean and volunteered that latest photo. I suppose he cannot volunteer them all!


    Lol, think about it:   what would be the reaction if he'd admitted to have mocked black people more than three times?

    Lol, he won't simply be called a racist. He'd be labelled a.........

    ..........SUPREMACIST!

     

     

     

     


  12. Are there more?   Yes, or no?

     

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized again on Thursday for wearing blackface in three separate incidents and said he did not know how many times he had put on racist makeup.

    Justin Trudeau says he does not know how many times he's worn blackface in his life - CNN

     

    That means.....there could be more! smiley.gif



    How can he not remember how many times he parodied black people?
    Because he did it so many times - he'd lost count! hearty-laugh.gif

     

     

    Okay, seriously - I don't think anyone had asked him, why?

    I want to know why he'd painted himself black - THREE TIMES (that we know of).
    Why is there this seeming pattern to enjoy parodying black people?

    Lol - just to go through the lengthy process of applying make-up to any visible spots - not to mention the time involved to remove it - why do it three times?

    For laughs?

    What is "funny" about being black?


  13. A lot of folks are missing the whole point in this latest Justin Trudeau  blackface controversy.  It isn't about racism.

     

      This is about  character .   The character of Justin Trudeau.

    Defined along this context (from Merriam):

    - the complex of mental and ethical traits marking and often individualizing a person, group, or nation (the character of the American people)

    - moral excellence and firmness (a man of sound character)

     

    The SNC-Lavalin scandal had shown us that he can indeed lie. He has no problem with that.
    This latest blackface scandal had clearly shown, he's good at it.

    This isn't a learned trait from being a politician. But, having been raised in politics - the art of lying, must've come with it.
    Having the skill at drama and acting (after all, he was a drama teacher), only makes that art of lying even more compelling and believable.


    It's been proven!  He's a liar. He consciously lied. We have so many proofs!
    Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!
    Fool me THRICE............ what? We're the ones proven morons? We deserve what we get?

    Why should we believe and settle for a proven liar? How can one even believe anything that he promise?

    Lol. It's not even like we have an efficient leader at the helm! Look at all the fiascos he'd made one after another!
    From that India trip (surprising he didn't put on a brown make-up to go with that costume and dancing), to buying a used pipeline for billons of dollars.......... that we could've gotten for free!
    Not to mention, becoming an international HYPOCRITICALLY sanctimonious embarrassment...... of a huge calibre!

    Is this liar worth it?

    If you're so cynical to believe all politicians are liars anyway - well, I do suggest then - let's try another liar!
    Another liar, who may at least do something good for this nation.

    Does Jesus qualify as an idol?

    If a Christian who gives honor and praise, and glorify Jesus and the symbol of  Cross, and he partakes in Communion, and yet does not believe that Jesus and God are One and the Same -  that God is Jesus as  human -  then, Jesus becomes an idol.

      It also makes the Bible non-credible, makes Jesus contradict Himself, and thus He becomes just another false prophet.

    That's why it is so important to believe that Jesus is God.

     

     

     


  15. The Liberals revoked the candidacy of Hassan Guillet over an anti-Semitic comment.  

    However, Hassan isn't only anti-Semitic - much worse, he is a terrorist sympathizer!

      Being a "former" imam - and based on his comment, we could even say he is a terrorist jihadist enabler!

     

    Quote

     

    In one of the comments, dated July 8, 2017, Guillet welcomed the release from prison of Raed Salah, whom the Jewish group described as a militant close to Hamas, which Canada lists as a terror group.

    Guillet congratulated Salah on being freed from a “prison of occupied Palestine,” and prayed that he would one day succeed in liberating “all of Palestine.” He described Salah as a “resistance fighter” and a “jihadist.”

    Who is Raed Salah?

    A Vision of a Global Caliphate

    Salah and his movement share many precepts with Iran, particularly the goal of creating a worldwide Islamic caliphate in the spirit of Muhammad. That vision is also shared, in one form or another, by the Muslim Brotherhood(1) and by the Hamas and al-Qaeda terror organizations.

    Thus the dream of Salah, or “Sheikh Al-Aksa,” does not focus on Jerusalem alone. Jerusalem and Al-Aksa are indeed a key element of his doctrine, but still they are only a step on a much higher ladder that leads to the objective – now feared throughout Europe – of the caliphate. If this component of Salah’s worldview is still not dominant, over the years it has become increasingly central to his faith and his conduct. The “Al-Aksa is in danger” libel is not only a tool for inciting against the Jewish people and the Zionist movement, nor merely a means to upgrade the holiness of Jerusalem on the Muslim scale. In the long term this libel is also intended to help consolidate global Islam around Jerusalem as the capital of the envisaged global caliphate.

    Why does the Liberals ignore that obvious fact?

    That's only true if it's a politician you support; they can do no wrong in your eyes, whether its breaking campaign promises, grabbing women by the pussy, hiring family members to fill political posts, insulting allies or lying every other day. Politicians you don't support are attacked and criticized for every little misstep, real or imagined.

    As long as they don't campaign on the promise to be different from other politicians, especially when they compare themselves with someone specific - like the way Trudeau compared himself to Harper!  Openness and transparency - sunnyways bull s###! :lol:

     

    Btw I'm curious, who grabbed women by the pussy? 

    The difference between conservatives and Liberals - Liberals  dug up 2005 video of Scheer!  

    Lol - does that ring a bell?   Shades of that decades-old Trump recording that was dug up too!

    2. It's all beside the point.  There's no pragmatism to any of this.  They have Jesus as their trump card if logic ever starts to make them uncomfortable...

    Anyway, unfortunately for Ford he has to govern in reality and campaign speeches are a distant memory.  I wouldn't be surprised if he quit soon.

     

    Hahahaha...... Here comes the Jesus-card!  hahaha :D

    He's booted Wynne out - that's all that matters!  :)
