Skip to comments.Conrad Black: Trudeau's not a racist, just a hypocrite and a weak leader
Posted on 09/21/2019 8:48:27 AM PDT by billorites
The election campaign to date has been an exercise in idiocy and cowardice. It is obviously embarrassing for Justin Trudeau to have had to admit to attending an Aladdin-themed party in 2001 made up to look like Aladdin (although Aladdin was an Arab not an African, and blackening his hands was oddly laborious). But Maxime Bernier is right that Justin is not a racist, just a hypocrite. As Tucker Carlson, the Fox News commentator, said on Thursday night, the prime ministers conduct is sort of like finding out your super-sensitive brother-in-law, the one who tells you hes a feminist, the one whos always scolding you for your sexism is, in fact, hitting on the babysitter. The story broke in Time magazine and the spectacle of the United States splitting its sides laughing at a Canadian politician as they did over the late Toronto mayor Rob Ford is distressing to most Canadians. They rejoice in mocking American leaders; the reverse is mortifyingly embarrassing.
In fact, there was probably no intent to mock any racial or ethnic group in the several incidents that have been revealed (after Justin said on Wednesday night that there had only been one other in his life). This propensity for absurd costumes, from Superman and Lawrence of Arabia to the Afro wig and features, and the dreadful fiasco in India where he inflicted subterraneanly silly costumes on his entire family, is affected and worrisome. He was a drama teacher and his father liked exotic costumes and foreign lands, but poncing through India in traditional outfits was like the prime minister of France and his family coming to Canada dressed like Jacques Cartier in frilly shirts and voluminous breeches, buckled shoes and three-cornered felt hats.

“I don’t actually care if he is or isn’t a racist. Give ‘em back what they give us, with interest. He’s a racist under their rules for us, therefore he really is a racist.”
Exactly! Some idiots on our side don’t seem to understand this, but insist on throwing little prick Justin a lifeline.
It is THAT which was truly absurd.
Even fake pagan praying. My religion would absolutely preclude that.
None of it is racist and Im getting sick of everything being racist. But indeed he is a hypocrite and a fool for the India thing. I wonder what real Indians were thinking of this?
His mother was a drunken whore at Studio 54 while her child was doing what?
“None of it is racist and Im getting sick of everything being racist.”
And just why do you think that is?
It’s because of lefties like Trudeau and his ilk who use it to club conservatives. Now when it bites him, you want to give him a lifeline.
See post #21.
The sick thing is that women LOVE him and that's why they voted him in. America has the same problem.
He should get the same treatment they give republicans for blackface.
Dont you think that is still letting commies rule the narrative?
If you continue in this path everyone will be a racist. It aint right.
Never mind that the narrative also tells us nothing is more evil than racism, which is frankly a bunch of nonsense. A poor premise.
“If you continue in this path everyone will be a racist. It aint right.”
Have you been asleep for the past few years? Everything our side does is racist. Just by existing we are racists.
But go ahead and give the lefties a lifeline.
Why do Freepers care whos racist?
Its like cats worrying who eats cheese.
