In the Midst of a Blackface Scandal, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Promises to Ban ‘Assault Weapons’

Justin Trudeau blackface scandal

CBC.ca

When Virginia Governor Ralph Northam found himself embroiled in a scandal when a college photo surfaced showing him in blackface (or possibly Klan robes), what did he do? He went after guns. Well, he went after them harder than he already had.

It didn’t work out for him in terms of getting gun control laws passed, but he’s still in office.

Now, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finds himself in a blackface scandal of his own. In fact, it turns out that Prime Minister Stepin Fetchit had a real thing for putting on the shoe polish. In fact, he’s done it so often that he simply can’t remember them all.

What’s an already unpopular PM to do when he finds himself in deep trouble heading into national elections?

Go after the guns, of course.

Trudeau has announced that if his party wins in the upcoming elections, he plans to ban assault rifles in the Great White North. He’s also promising to give the provinces incentives to ban handguns, too.

“Thoughts and prayers aren’t going to cut it,” Trudeau said in Toronto’s Greektown, the site of a shooting last year that left two people dead and 13 injured. “We know you do not need a military-grade assault weapon, one designed to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time, to take down a deer.”

Sound familiar? Trudeau’s announcement succeeded…in diverting at least some of the unwanted press attention that was focused on his blackface proclivities.

If Northam’s experience is any indication, Trudeau might survive the scandal. It seems that blatantly racist behavior by some people can be forgiven…if their politics are of the approved variety.

Then again, Northam is term-limited and hasn’t had to face the voters since his uncomfortable past was revealed. Canada’s voters get to express their opinion on October 21.

    But I don’t keep an AR-15 handy to take out a group of deer breaking into my house.

    Northam can still screw us over in Virginia if the Democrats take control of the senate and House of Delegates.

    Gun owners need to show up to the polls this November otherwise he’ll get his wish.

      I agree. I have lived in Virginia for 72 years and have watched the Virginia I know disappear because of carpetbaggers than came down south and moved to Northern Virginia. I live in the very conservative mountains and maybe I should move 50 miles west and live in Tennessee.

        I’m only temporarily living in VA, and love it here so I won’t be voting. The problem is we are going to run out of places to run. TN is fine for now, but Nashville will be the center of gravity for the state, and the other cities will eventually sway things politically the other way. The nutters won’t stop destroying the places they live and then fleeing them like locusts to ruin some other location. At least we don’t have piles of poop in Arlington, yet.

    Boy, very awkward hand placement in that first pic. Is he trying to choke her or cop a feel?

  4. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

    Canada has the same problem in it’s politics as we do…the coasts and the large Liberal-controlled cities try to dictate to the rest of the country.

    So a known racist is pushing gun control. This is my surprised face.

    1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

      I’m only concerned about the comments Trudeau made about gun control. I myself really don’t care about blackface, brownface, or whatever. If it’s part of a benign costume for a party, who cares? Or if it’s done to honor someone by imitation, who cares?

      But it’s okay to do whiteface if you’re part of Lefty Hollywood, I guess. I mean, I never heard any uproar whatsoever when the movie “White Chicks” was released:

      1. avatar Dude says:

        I’m pretty sure they didn’t mind Dave Chappelle putting on white face to mock white people, which was hilarious by the way.

        The only reason these stories are a big deal is because it involves the people that are always screaming about racism, always ready to ruin someone’s life over something as simple as the “wrong” opinion or something that isn’t PC. It turns out they’re just hypocrites using the fear of racism as a means to an end.

  6. avatar Dude says:

    “gender-based based violence” WTH does that mean? Shouldn’t all violence be addressed equally? Virtue signalling SJWs must be even worse in Canada.

    1. avatar GomeznSA says:

      Violence is an act by a person (NOT a ‘human’ being) regardless of what tool is used. That simple FACT always seems to elude those who call it – among many other phony terms -“gun violence”. The end result is either grievous bodily harm or death, it matters not how that violence is perpetrated – at least to the victim(s).
      The feeble attempts to place the blame on inanimate objects is just an overt attempt to minimize the responsibility of the person who commit that violent act. Period

    Wow. Liberal Canadians are racists too. Who knew?

  8. avatar Rusty - Die Ruthie Die - Chains says:

    Known racists always push gun control for the “others.” Post Reconstruction Southern Democrats pushed Jim Crow laws, which is part of the reason they don’t teach that in government schools, or just skip it if the non-woke textbooks are still in use.

    Seems he has a real fetish for going about in blackface since there is now video of it from some other time. He couldn’t even say there wouldn’t be even more pictures of him doing that. With The Canadian elections just next month, this is likely to sink the Liberals. I hope so, as I have Canadian friends who will be far better off without this idiot in charge. That and Canada has even more stupid gun laws than we do!

    1. avatar Guesty "Weekend At Ruthie's" McGuesterson says:

      At least they no longer have the long gun registry, though I think that’ll be back on the table at some point, despite the Liberal.ca “promise” that it won’t.

    You forgot Harvey Weinstein wanting to do the same thing after him raping women became public knowledge.

      Kevin Spacey.

    Little Justin learned well from Barack Hussein.

    The press are as predictable as a Golden Retriever: throw a ball, and they’ll chase it.

    So when you’re a pol caught in a scandal, propose some sweeping gun control move, and the press will squeal with orgasmic delight and forget all about your scandal. They’re utterly predictable that way.

    Journalists are some of the most gullible people put on this earth.

    1. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

      Hmmm… gullible or manipulative?

      Either way they are shills for Progressive Socialism (ie. Communism Lite).

      1. avatar DevilDog53 says:

        Once ‘lite’ fails it will have a proclivity to default to ‘heavy’…

        1. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

          Yes Sir!

    2. avatar Rocketman says:

      Not to mention stupid. But their not really that gullible, their minds have been brain washed and their superiors have just finished the job as they move up the ladder of promotions. No boss is going to promote an underling that disagrees with him all the time and is actually pro-gun.

    3. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “The press are as predictable as a Golden Retriever: throw a ball, and they’ll chase it.”

      Trump exploited the *fuck* out of that for his election.

      Every time the press would start to latch onto something that could have taken him out, Trump dropped such a shit-bomb of a distraction, he just breezed on through.

      His most famous use of that tactic was after the ‘Gold Star Mom’ controversy, his response was to do something even more outrageous, and the press just chased right after it.

      The press knew Trump was playing them, and they still let him do it. It was fucking *brilliant*, his political instincts he used in that race…

    4. avatar Dave G. says:

      @ Dyspeptic Gunsmith and Old guy in Montana:
      Yet another goddamn generalization. And just like all other generalizations, totally invalid.

      My pop was a reporter on a big city newspaper for 24 years starting in 1936. He didn’t have a gullible bone in his body, and he was nobody’s shill. And he hated Communism. He also had a classical education (with a major in philosophy) in a day before Journalism Schools became a big fad. So there’s one journalist already who doesn’t fit your generalization.

    Trudeau is an embarrassment for Canada, on the scale that Obama was for America…

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      I’m not sure I agree with you that Obama was in embarrassment for America, is there a particular issue or set of issues that lead you to this observation?

      Expanding CCW rights to hundreds of thousands of acres of federal lands doesn’t seem particularly embarrassing, I would think Bush was more embarrassed for not achieving that goal.

      Most of the world sees Donald Trump as a much greater embarrassment to the US, and I have to agree.

      1. avatar Dude says:

        “I’m not sure I agree with you that Obama was in embarrassment for America, is there a particular issue or set of issues that lead you to this observation?”

        For starters, talking bad about America and American citizens while visiting other countries. He’s actually still doing it as recently as this year.

      2. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

        “I’m not sure I agree with you that Obama was in embarrassment for America,…”

        How about his world-wide ‘apology’ tour after he was elected? His repeated claims that America was in no way ‘exceptional’ or better than any other country, even those that tolerate homosexuals being thrown off the tops of multi-story buildings, just because they are gay?

        Are you fucking *serious*, 49r?

        (Actually, you’re not. You’re just another shit troll in TTAG…)

      3. avatar DFLOCAL101 says:

        You’re not sure? That’s because you’re wrong. Let us know when you’re sure.

      4. avatar George Washington says:

        Well that’s because you’re probably a pavement ape just like that embarrassment that we allowed to take office as a gesture of good will…… But as usual, NO RESPECT IN RETURN….. SO SO TYPICAL

  13. avatar Timothy Toroian says:

    What is the percentage of Canadian crimes committed with “assault” rifles, .000002% or less? He needs to make sure he’s in the office before making promises. He wasn’t an immature college student at the time he did this he was an immature adult. Pierre would be SO proud.

  14. avatar former water walker says:

    Isn’t the Canadian ASSault rifle neutered already?!? Like 5round mags and no pistol grips? Or fun add-ons? I’ve seen a few Canadian YouTube video’s showing that crap. Grandpa’s bolt rifle would do as well…I predict dips##t Justin will breeze to victory.

  15. avatar B says:

    Pro black face, anti black gun. What an assclown.

      Blackface gooooood.
      Black guns baaaaaad,

    Run their Mothers over for a vote! Sick.

  17. avatar GS650G says:

    Gov. Klan man did the same thing. Must be how they earn their liberal bonifides back.

  18. avatar RGP says:

    Doesn’t Trudeau have better things to do, like punching MP’s who don’t vote for whatever he wants whenever he wants?

  19. avatar George Washington says:

    This is to be expected from the land of homos…. And Sissy boys…. Look at the heritage of Canada and you’ll see exactly why they are ALL GAY

    Progressive leftists: “It’s not racism when WE do it.” Fuck these people with the horse they rode in on.
