BREAKING: Justin Trudeau wore “brownface” at party in 2001, while teaching at a private school

Rebel Staff

TIME Magazine reports, "Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, wore brownface makeup to a party at the private school where he was teaching in the spring of 2001. TIME has obtained a photograph of the incident."

The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.

Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community. Adamson was not at the party, which was attended by school faculty, administrators and parents of students. He said that he first saw the photograph in July and felt it should be made public.

On Wednesday, Zita Astravas, the media relations lead of the Liberal Party of Canada, which Trudeau is the leader of, confirmed that the Prime Minister was in the photo. “It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ‘Arabian Nights.’ He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin,” said Astravas. Trudeau is planning on addressing the photograph to the media later this evening, according to the Astravas. The prime minister’s official director of communications did not return multiple calls.

Glad to see Justin’s stupid political correctness and identity politics is coming back to bite him. This is all so ridiculous. So infantile.
Canada, the laughing stalk yet again. Trudeau started this stupid game and only has himself to blame.

The story of Ginger Attiker / Sean Penson et al Once upon a time,there were three (true) Conservatives on a mission to fight for justice.To accomplish this,it was physically and morally necessary to cross a bridge.They ranged in size(physically and conviction-wise) from small to large.When they came to the bridge…. they encountered a smarmy,nauseous,self-loathing Troll who said he/she controlled the bridge and would devour any Conservative who tried to cross…. because he/she was in control of the narrative…

The smallest of the Conservatives attempted to cross and was confronted by said Troll.The smallest Conservative convinced (no too difficult to do) the Troll to wait for the next larger Conservative coming behind because that Conservative would be a much larger and more satisfying snack for King Troll to devour…. so…..the small Conservative was allowed to pass.
The larger Conservative appeared…was immediately challenged by the Liberal Troll…. and repeated the same story as the smallest Conservative.The larger Conservative also added to the story that the rewards would be humongous,both physically and politically … if the Troll would wait for the biggest Conservative following behind.(Looks like a no-brainer…. he/she went for it.)
Finally,the largest,strongest Conservative stood on the bridge and was,at once,challenged by Iggy the Fire Bobby /Liberal Bus Boy Troll who said….“you will not pass…. I will devour you…. morally and intellectually.” The largest Conservative simply used rational,logical reasoning and promptly kicked the sorry excuse for a Troll’s ass off the bridge….
I understand that Rebel News reported that Ginger Attiker / Sean Penson’s (et al) lame and bruised buttocks was seen drifting out to sea.The remains were picked up by Saint Greta of Thunberg sailing to North America to save it from itself. The remains were quickly given over to the Liberals because they were stinking up the ship.Trudeau took the remains and had them bronzed.They are currently outside Parliament with another bronzed Butts.Both are displayed in the face down position….of course.
This is good news because….. if you visit Parliament Hill and you view the monuments…you will have a convenient place to park your bicycle and not have it fall over.
My apologies to Hans Christian Andersen for butchering his fable……..

I am, at the least, pleased that Mr. Trudeau has apologized. Whether we can move on is a different story. I must remind myself that “he that is without sin cast the first stone”. As a Christian, I have to forgive him, and pray the love of God to fill his heart.

Just imagine the kerfuffle if a darkface photo of Scheer or Bernier was produced! I expect the media would push THAT for weeks. As it is, I’m going to be very surprised if the media is even mentioning this by the weekend. I’m sure they’re going to write it off as a boyish indiscretion that is of no significance at all. After all, they took $600 million to “be nice” to Trudeau.

Another nail in the coffin

The first question that hit me on seeing the photo is: where is his other hand? Given his record up to that date, and since, I shudder to think!!

I am so concerned as to why over 30% of voters would still support Mr. Trudeau, with all his blunders. I get concerned for the intellect of the average voter, regardless of political views.

At this point I think this corrupt PM could get away with murder and the media and his sheep would continue to spin it like he did nothing wrong.

I guess we can hypocrite to Justine’s dossier.
