Explosion of “overt racism” at Halifax music fest directed at “pesky whiteskin”

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Halifax Pop Explosion Music Festival ended with organizers profusely apologizing for the “overt racism” displayed by a volunteer during a performance by singer Lido Pimienta, but a question remains about who was being racist to whom.

That’s because the Columbian-Canadian musician, invited people of colour to come to the front while those with pale complexions were ordered to the back.

Every honky obeyed Lido’s marching orders — except one volunteer photographer who didn’t want to give up her vantage point close to the stage.

Lido and the brown-skinned audience members were livid with this stubborn woman who was so obviously full of white privilege.

Event organizers eventually removed the would-be Rosa Parks and in the aftermath, issued a statement on behalf of the festival’s board of directors promising “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” so this wouldn’t happen next year.

But if anyone needs anti-racism training it's Lido and the festival organizers.

There was indeed overt racism on display at the Halifax Pop Explosion Music Festival, but it was being perpetrated against a white FEMALE photographer who was simply trying to do her job.

Hypocritical Bitch!… I wonder is she would be OK with being sent “to the back of the bus” at a concert back in Colombia by any of the107 indigenous tribes that the Spaniards keep on land reserves?…

Paul Lindgreen—I totally agree. Crowdfund a lawsuit against The Halifax Music Festival and the Colombian- Canadian Racist.

Shame on anyone being sent to the back of the bus for not protesting in one manner or another.

The Halifax Pop Explosion Music Festival should not receive any tax payer dollars to openly commit and promote racism. I hope the photographer sues the event organizers, Ill help crowdfund that legal battle.

Keep it up Halifax.. Keep it up… Outside of your shipbuilding subsidized economy and the CND dollars, the rest of the province is a hollow landscape of run down bumpy roads, old folks in empty houses, overtaxed booze, and a few privileged lobstermen who inherited daddy’s license…

“Nice of her to bring her racism with her when she came to Canada.
Another happy immigrant. Why do they come here if they so revile us?”

For all the freebies of course.

Yeah because Columbia is such an enlightened country LMAO!

David are you sure that was a Pop Music Concert, because that footage of the Colombian Racist performing, it looked more like a Yodeling Contest.

Talk about Stockholm syndrome on steroids.

Shame on Halifax.

What Tammie P.Z. posted.
This is really shameful.
Columbian -Canadian. Born in Barranquilla, Colombia.
Nice of her to bring her racism with her when she came to Canada.
Another happy immigrant. Why do they come here if they so revile us?

I wish there was something we could do to shut down these racist thugs and hateful bigots…like a Human Rights Tribunal or something, that protects people from racism – the ones we have are only for non-white people.
Or maybe some politicians or even media organizations could defend the rights of all Canadians – ours only protect non-whites and weird sexually-disordered people and lying, conniving, criminal politicians and degenerate ‘celebrities’.
Or maybe we could get the police to serve and protect us – except that they’ don’t do that anymore, they’re here only in the capacity of law enforcement now…the ’government’s’ laws.
Or maybe we could defend ourselves from these bullies and hypocrites – except if we do try and defend ourselves from criminals and tyrants and whatnot…we go to jail.
Sounds like they’re trying to get rid of us White folks.
Well this ‘pesky whiteskin’ ain’t goin’ away so easy!
Gotta love those lefty identity politics, it really brings out the polarization and divisiveness in people…

“Proof that total multiculturalism doesn’t work.”

Well it works according to the Libtards that continually turn a blind eye to the increasing violence going on in Ontario and now in other parts of Canada. Most “petty” crimes go unreported. But hey look on the bright side, according to the Libtards crime is down.

Speaking of concerts, last night our mild-mannered Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was at the Leonard Cohen Tribute concert in Montreal, and once again making an event all about himself. It’s-all-about-me Trudeau and his wife barged their way onto the stage, making himself MC for the evening.

He was yammering away about some drivel encounter he had with Cohen, bla bla… talking about himself, Obama-style. As if he has something important to say.

What an unbelievably vain and entitled man. If I had gone I would have demanded my money back.

He was a no-show in Parliament today.

I think my ears started bleeding!
Lido’s racist attitude isn’t welcome here, I hope festival organizers remember that.

There is a sort of insanity to multiculturalism.

William Haadiss—Menzies and I will spell it correctly when she behaves like a Canadian.
commented 2017-11-07 15:10:21 -0500
It’s ColOmbian-Canadian! The country’s name is Colombia, with an O. Please fix.

HPB 3515 —If this story did appear in the MSM, it would be entirely about how the Racist White Woman used her White Privilege and refused to go to the back of the line.
We don’t want Racists in Canada, so it would be a fine example for Immigrants like Lido to be deported back to the POS country of Columbia where she came from, or the very least she deserves to be charged and punished. Does she think she gets Muslim Privileges in Canada?
commented 2017-11-07 13:22:05 -0500
I’m betting that she was in contact with BLM. If I was there I would have left, and all the white people should demand a refund from this racist hoe!
commented 2017-11-07 13:10:22 -0500
Another example of why we need The Rebel media coverage. If this story did appear on main stream media it would be buryed somewhere between the Obits and a hemmoriod cream ad

“Progressives” are the most racist people there are. This is on the Halifax Pop Explosion Music Festival. They brought in this talentless hack in the first place & now they’re promoting her disgusting racist policies.
commented 2017-11-07 12:47:49 -0500
And I am sure none of those anti-racist, progressive people of colour stood at the back with their white brothers & sisters. It’s only one way traffic, leading our society to the ledge from where there’s no return.
commented 2017-11-07 12:38:31 -0500
Wow is she very racist !!! Guess it is perfectly to be so overtly racist provided your skin is not fair in complexion, flipping hypocrites.
commented 2017-11-07 12:14:54 -0500
She’s appropriating whitey’s technology again. Tsk, tsk.
commented 2017-11-07 11:53:54 -0500
Honky..!?? I much prefer the term cracker..!!
commented 2017-11-07 11:37:46 -0500
I don’t think any white should even attend her performances.
commented 2017-11-07 11:14:32 -0500
Lido will never have that problem with me. I wouldn’t go to one of her shows even if I got in for free.
