    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says he knows now that his decision to dress up in brownface 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." The 2001 incident was brought to light Wednesday evening by an article in Time Magazine. Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane, Trudeau apologized for his actions, saying that he now recognizes his actions were racist.

    When will the Left ever hold their own accountable for all their racist crap? Good god Im so tired of hearing them whine that Trump is a racist but they remain silent about their own racist comrades.

    Ugh, beat me to it by 11 minutes lol. This man is such an embarrassment. How he even wakes up in the morning without stubbing his toe on the carpet is a wonderment unto science.

    You know how many jambogs I've had recently? Too damn many. The other day I spent 10 minutes making a thread, in that 10 minutes someone posted the thread I was making. No luck at all.

    The cancel culture always wants to call a truce when it’s one of theirs.


    I have to wonder if the large number of defecting republicans are being blackmailed. We are at a point where we might be able to push through an entire republican agenda if we take back the house, and they are running away.

    Seems odd. I am of course, speculating.

    So, it's blackface, when non-progressives do it, and brownface when progressives do it?

    Nothing to see here, folks. The Democratic Party has already decided that it is OK to be in Blackface, provided you do so while carrying the DNC membership card.

    Three Virginia Dems got into big trouble and the national media
    gave them the cover of silence after a week or so.
    Republicans would have been subjected to an endless drumbeat
    of media demands for resignations until they were forced out of office.

    I've tried a couple of times and have learned my lesson. I'm just an observer here.

    NSA metadata more likely. Every browser search, every time their phone was alone with someone else’s phone in a hotel away from their spouse, etc.
