Doubtful. If antics in highschool or university mattered, Kavanaugh wouldn't be on the SCOTUS.

To me this is less about the blackface itself and more about Trudeau's hypocrisy. It basically gave the Conservatives license to laugh at him or the Liberals when they lecture Canadians on racism.

The difference between the allegations against Kavanaugh and the Trudeau Brown/Black face reports is the Trudeau ones actually happened.

Maybe you should try to blame the Russians. :lol:

3 times PM Mr. Dressup took dressup too far.

I don't believe he did any of it with racist intent. Just like I'm sure he thought he was doing to right thing with SNC Lavalin trying to save a bunch of jobs. He wasn't breaking a law to profit personally from it.

I do, however, believe he is stupid enough that he shouldn't be running a country.

And he's managed to embarrass Canada enough internationally that I'm tired of him.

Isn't it about Trudeau admitting he did it, right away and Kavanagh refusing to?

Why admit to doing something that you didn't do?

With 5 weeks to go .... probably not, this will be forgotten by then.

His voting base won't leave him over this. After all, they are as hypocritical as he is. :lol:

Ummmmmmm, you might want to look at where his family money is invested before
saying something like that.

I sometimes fail to see the "racism" when people dress up with black-face, or a Native head-dress, or a large sombrero or kilt. If you do it to mock... an example would be a "a lazy Mexican" or a "black pimp" disguise"... then don't. :evil:


I've worn the full Highland dress before... is that racism too? :lol:


I think you fail to see the racism, because, well, it's not racist. It has just become a new SJW hot button. Honestly, it irritates me to no end. Since when does a Halloween costume immediately signify racism? Should I be offended when people dress up as a drunken Irishman on St. Patty's day? The guy dressed in a costume, and added skin paint to make it more accurate, we do that with every other costume we wear too.

Unless he dressed up in Amos & Andy true "blackface" and started pretending to be an ignorant slave, it's not racist. Hell, even then I wouldn't rush to judgement. People do shit for laughs all the time that doesn't mean anything. I had a mixed race friend who happened to have very light skin dress up as Buckwheat one year, complete with blackface and hair, walking around like a dummy all day. He'd be crucified for that now, but it was all in good fun, and he clearly wasn't racist against his black dad.

Oh? If that's the case, lock him up.

Where does one go to verify stuff like that?

No big deal, I was dressed in a similar outfit at a works theme Christmas party, as was everyone else.

The difference being, none of us strutted around the country preaching acceptance and diversity.

He moved his portfolio to a blind trust in 2013.

This move was made prior to the SNC affair. Short of anyone finding written instructions showing Trudeau interfering with the actions of said trust (this can be before, during, and even after), since the affair began, he is legally protected.
Quote:

One doesn't. Trudeau voluntarily showed the contents of his portfolio to the Ottawa Citizen, prior to his Liberal party leadership win.

The trust is held by BMO Harris Private Banking (July, 2013).

Nope. It's about the burden of proof. In Kavanaugh's case there wasn't enough of a burden to deny him his position on the Supreme Court. Whereas, with Trudeau there's more than enough photographic evidence to deny him his position as Prime Minister of Canada.

So, Trudeau admitting to wearing blackface is meaningless because the evidence is irrefutable. And for the record, Kavanaugh has still never been found guilty of anything except having fun in High School and being the Target of a Democratic party hate campaign

BTW what does Brett Kavanaugh have to do with any of this?
