I’m troubled by this.

We have seen GMButts and #TrudeauCorruption fir 4 years LIE on everything— some lies are criminal #ObstructionOfJustice

They will do anything for power. So I’m skeptical

Why would anyone risk lives of 1000 attendees if the risk was real?
2/ #TrudeauWorstPM mistrust on everything FAKE:
- #metoo -groping
- feminist- firing top women
- environmentalist - 2 planes
- Ethics
- inclusion- #blackface

Healthy to think it’s staged.

I broke #HijabHoax story.
Why is this tweet still up?

3/. Why were what appears to be Canadian rangers at event protecting #TrudeauCorruption ?

It seems against RCMP protocol to delegate the safety of the PM to Canadian Rangers.

I have RCMP followers - help me on this.

I’m thinking this was staged.

1) A vote for Justin Trudeau is a vote for Obama.
There’s much to criticize from the last four years of the Trudeau Government. From Ethics charges, to SNC Lavalin, to Off-Shore accounts, donations to the Clinton Foundation a book can be written about Trudeau’s ineptitude.
2) It’s interesting to note that Stephen Bronfman, who headed up PM Trudeau’s last campaign in 2015 seems to be curiously absent this time around. It seems Trudeau has turned south of the border for his re-election, to his buddy Obama.

3) Working as a senior strategist for Mr. Obama, Mr. Axelrod played a key role in developing political ads in 2012 that painted Republican candidate Mitt Romney as an out-of-touch elitist whose business practices had hurt average American workers.

The problem is Judy that 1) you did not treat the #blackface issue with seriousness or sensitivity. You got your ass handed to you and then decided to put out a statement.
2) You felt ok to publicly state that “the community” accepts this because your leader, the PM, did not use the opportunity to raise the consciousness of Canadians about #blackface and tell people who need to learn about it, why it was wrong in the first place
3) Most candidates hoped the issue would just disappear, and instead of showing your mettle and challenging the PM to do better, and telling Canadians what he will do to be held accountable for his behaviour, most of y’all stayed silent

After reflecting on Trudeau’s #brownface (and now #blackface) scandal, a THREAD:

TL;DR: Racism is systemic. Policies matter. Commit to anti-racism. Amplify racialized voices. Scrutinize for consistency.

Race is complex. Its discourse must meet that complexity, not overlook it.
First, be *aware*. Stop being surprised by events like this. It’s not “shocking” that Trudeau wore blackface; It’s expected. Racism is systemic in Canada. Those who deny it aren’t seeing a different society, they’re simply failing to name it.
Second, be *precise*. Specifically, ask the right questions: Not “is Trudeau racist?” But “how do his actions reflect systemic racism?” And “what are we doing to dismantle that system?” The individualization of racism is what upholds its systemic force.

No. Nobody with even half a brain cell on the left would do that if they were aware of the historical significance of Caucasian people painting themselves into #BlackFace. (gollywogs etc) So it's clearly something @JustinTrudeau did before he learned what it meant.
To anyone accusing me of being biased or inconsistent, suggesting that I'm only taking this position on blackface because I Iike Justin Trudeau.... Here's a thread I made over a year ago about people I'd never even heard of...
Honest opinion:
Blackface to imitate black people in general has historical connotations making it racist AF.
Blackface as an homage to a character/celeb you love doesn't make you racist... but unless Spielberg does your makeup it won't look good enough not to look disrespectful.

TRUDEAU IN AFRO! Second Photo of Justin Trudeau in Blackface Surfaces from High School Talent Show

Trudeau also had a pedo as his college roommate- 😉

And don’t forget Chrystia Freeland, the real Prime Minister of Canada, her grandpa was a Nazi propagandist.

We are missing the point if this story becomes about Justin Trudeau being unveiled as "a racist". Here is an opportunity to think more deeply about the situation and what allows it to be so. I'm not in any way surprised by the image that has been circulated. /1
North American society is quite focused on identifying people as 'racists' or 'not racists'. Being called racist is considered one of the worst labels you could apply to someone. And yet, we all live, breathe and swim in a soup of structural racism reinforcing racist beliefs. /2
The reason for the crisis is that @JustinTrudeau's image is one of being a 'good person' who identifies as feminist, welcomes immigrants, and reconciliation. So his defenders rush to say, he's not 'a racist' because this is impossible for someone who is a 'good person'. /3

LaRavia, chortling as he described Ivey’s outfit, said the future Alabama governor wore blue coveralls, “and she had put some black paint all over her face.” washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/… #blackface #Alabama
Alabama columnist: Even before the news that our GOP governor put on blackface, we knew what she was about, knew that she bragged about saving Confederate monuments. al.com/news/2019/08/w…

[CONTRE ENQUETE] Le soir de la fête de la musique à Nantes, la police charge violemment les fêtards. 14 personnes tombent dans la Loire. 1 disparu #Oueststeeve ? On a enquêté sur le commissaire responsable de l'opération. Plusieurs révélations. #Thread ⬇️
streetpress.com/sujet/15627494…
Selon plusieurs témoins, avant la charge de la police, des fêtards / organisateurs ont voulu dialoguer pour désamorcer la situation : 🗨️« Ils nous ont directement insultés et bousculés. Ils nous ont dit: Fermez vos gueules, on vous parle pas ! » #Thread ⬇️streetpress.com/sujet/15627494…
Comme s'ils voulaient en découdre. Alors qu'ils tentent de discuter et qu'il n'y a aucune violence des fêtards, « ils sont repartis s’équiper. », raconte un témoin. Le drame pouvait être évité ! #Thread ⬇️

Yesterday I met with labor union representatives who asked me, "What are people telling you on the doors about how we can move forward?"

"Forward" is a really great-sounding, popular political term. Obama used it. So did Communist China in the 1980's: (向前看) I have, too.
It came up at our healthcare/reproductive freedom roundtable last night. "How do we move forward?" I asked my guests @MargieInTheDMV and @srobgyn.

Certainly, recognizing the need to move forward and having conversations is important, and a first step as Margie pointed out.
The refrain after a tragedy like #NewZealandTerroristAttack is always how to move "past" it. The same words used in the wake of the #Blackface scandals here in Virginia.

The metaphor underlying it all is: we're all on a linear path: backward is bad, forward is good.

@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Amen brother!!😍🤗

#BlackHistoryMonth is like a breadcrumb, to follow our #Clues, that as another proverb hashtag called #AmericanDOS is used, leading more #ISRAELITES to #Awake from #Christianity paganism and sorcery. #Religion has never been our friend. #WakeUp 911. #REPENT
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Understanding: #Hosea 4:6. #Christianity never told us the #Messiah whom is called #Jesus is #blackface as in naturally #Dark. Never told us that #Moses is #Dark. #Job, #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB all are #BlackLikeUs.

#Churches teach #paganism and doesn't keep #Sabbath Day holy
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA #Understanding: WE are the #descendants of #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB and were cursed because of #Disobedience and gross #Trangression of the #Laws that He gave us. #Genesis begins our #BlackHistory.

Talking to voters on the campaign trail is one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. So I'm going to start #VoterPearls, pearls of wisdom I pick up as I meet the people of Virginia's 87th District.
From this weekend's canvass:

"Traffic is bad, but people are good. At least , they want good. That's my story and I'm sticking with it."

#VoterPearls
"I stood there, the only born American in the circle, and thought, why does that matter? One of these people (born elsewhere) might cure Alzheimer's. Why wouldn't we let people in?"

First, #Virginia's governor defends #infantacide, now this yearbook photo from college where he is dressed in #blackface surfaces a few days later.

#Kavenhaugh did nothing. Rep. #SteveKing's statement was taken out of context by The New York Times...
but their crimes were being #Republican.

#Democrats are literally getting a pass for baby murder and blatanty saying black people are stupid clowns.

....
Since so many #blacks continue to support Democrats regardles what they say or do, the shoe obviously fits for them and all other #Democrats are sick #hypocrites.

Nessa thread eu vou usar a psicologia pra te libertar de um arquétipo perverso: o #vagabundo; uma ficção criada pra marginalizar a pobreza e principalmente o povo negro.
O nosso povo foi taxado como vagabundo desde que deixou de ser escravizado. Não é atoa que um dos atributos negativos que a cultura do #blackface atribuía em seus espetáculos era de que os negros seriam preguiçosos e desengonçados.
Existe uma técnica de limpeza social velada que é usada com êxito até hoje: a criminalização de certos comportamentos. Nos EUA e em outros lugares é discutido se o uso e a venda de certos entorpecentes foi atribuída a grupos étnicos como forma de reprimi-los.

Obligé d'y revenir car j'ai encore lu : "ya pas de #blackface en France".
Qu'est-ce donc que ça ? Carnaval de Dunkerque : "la Nuit des Noirs". Grimage, caricatures négrophobes, les accessoires choisis. C'est pas assez explicite ? A gauche édition 2008, à droite édition 2018.
La diff en France par rapport à d'autres pays, c'est que c'est pas un truc national, ça n'en reste pas moins un pb. Bref.
En plus des accessoires explicites, ils nomment eux-mêmes cette abomination "nuit des Noirs" (sur certains flyers on peut lire "bal des Noirs" aussi) avec N majuscule, mais certains vont encore faire croire que tout ceci n'a rien à voir avec les noirs comme personnes. Allez bye.
