No repercussions from the left for Justin’s blackface fetish. No matter how grotesque and egregious the racism, if it’s on the left — no consequences. That’s how real racism and totalitarianism works.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam loved to wear a blackface, and he is still Governor.
If this were Andrew Scheer, he would be crucified by the biased and corrupt mainstream media in Canada. It would be the end of Scheer’s campaign.
Over the past 12 hours, three separate images revealed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a penchant for wearing black and brownface from the time he was a teenager and well into adulthood. (The Root)
Trudeau says he is ‘deeply sorry’ he appeared in brown face at school gala in 2001
Muslim group says Trudeau must apologize ‘unequivocally’
By CBC News, September 19, 2019:
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says he knows now that his decision to dress up in brown face and a turban for a gala at a private school where he worked 18 years ago was a racist thing to do and he is now “deeply sorry.”
Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane, Trudeau apologized for his actions, saying that he now recognizes his actions were racist.
“In 2001, when I was a teacher in Vancouver, I attended a gala. The theme was Arabian Nights. I dressed up in an Aladdin costume and put makeup on. I shouldn’t have done that. I should have known better, but I didn’t and I’m really sorry.
“I take responsibility for my decision to do that. I shouldn’t have done it. I should have known better. It was something that I didn’t think was racist at the time, but now I recognize it was something racist to do and I am deeply sorry.”
The 2001 incident was brought to light Wednesday evening by an article in Time Magazine.
The article details how the picture of Trudeau appears in the 2000-01 yearbook of the West Point Grey Academy, a private school in Vancouver.
Time Magazine said Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was a part of the West Point Grey Academy community, brought the photograph to the magazine’s attention because he said he thought it should be made public.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said Trudeau’s behaviour was “troubling” and “insulting”
“It’s making a mockery of someone for what they live and what their lived experiences are,” Singh said. “I think he needs to answer for it. I think he needs to answer the question why he did that and what does that say about what he thinks about people who, because of who they are, because of the colour of their skin, face challenges and barriers and obstacles in their life.”
‘Racism is real’
“Racism is real. People in this room have felt it, have heard this story. I’ve experienced it in my life. he’s got to answer those questions.”
The National Council of Canadian Muslims said Trudeau’s appearance in brownface was “disgraceful, plain and simple.”
