Naked hypocrisy: If Trudeau topless photo is "no big deal," why does Media Party blur it?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

There's a new twist on that now-notorious photo of Justin Trudeau posing with a topless young woman at a Pride parade.

First Trudeau's defenders insisted that the photo was "obviously" Photoshopped.

After we hired a police forensic analyst to confirm that the picture was real, the Liberal Party admitted that, yes, their leader Justin Trudeau -- a married, middle aged man who wants to be the next Prime Minister -- willingly let himself be photographed in public with a half-naked woman about half his age.

So Trudeau's supporters had to quickly change the direction of their spin.

The Media Party started insisting that the photo was "no big deal," that it was a great example of female empowerment and "SlutWalk feminism."

Except when the Toronto Star and other outlets printing the picture, they blurred it.

I wonder why...

Charles – Which other world leaders are you afraid won’t takeserioisly a leader who supports Pride? What else are you willing to concede or give up to appease them?

Careful with that line of thinking.

I don’t have an ageist bias – I was pretty much quoting what society today has often said about out of touch politicians from previous generations that are still in power – they need to die and the political system needs new blood.
commented 2015-08-09 17:16:52 -0400

Well maybe I am confusing my Canadian conservatives with the American conservatives and Ezra’s army on The Rebel.

Kelvin – not all gay people are queens. Lots of macho gay guys in the Conservative Party, the RCMP, the military.
commented 2015-08-09 17:14:56 -0400

The police are looking that guy who kissed the reporter – because it’s deemed as an assault. Do you not know the difference?

Jimmy – I must call you on the ageist bias. While the old adage may be generally true that if you are not a Liberal when you are young, you have no heart, and if you are not Conservative when you are old, you have no brain, there are more than enough old liberated-thinking Conservatives and young single-minded bigoted Liberals to go around. Sadly. Being pro-Pride and pro-LGBTQ rights, pro-feminism, pro-immigration and growth is not either a Liberal or Conservative (or NDP or Green, etc) idea but an idea supported by all right thinkers.

Charles – the whole world took Clinton seriously. Both before and after he both committed adultery and after he lied about it. Why is posing with a topless woman at a pro-human rights celebration worse than what Clinton did?

Jimmy – I wonder if your information about Conservatives opposing gay marriage and Pride might be outdated?

Conservatives have been extremely outspoken against human rights abuses of the LGBTQ community around the world. No Conservative I know opposes equal rights for queers.

Once upon a time, yes … but people change and Conservative now champion the LGBTQ cause.

Jimmy…In the news today the CBC is aghast that some man kissed a CBC reporter….yet a party girl slut jumping up on Justin and leg hugging him while flashing a “whale tail” is no big deal.

And I agree …it is no big deal…..but neither is the unsolicited kiss.

You speak of Justin’s cool….his ease with sexuality….

Jimmy…there are a number of leftist female candidates who I would love to fuck…..but I would never consider voting them into political power on that basis.

And if you or women collectively cannot match that level of intelligent discernment….then it was indeed foolish to grant you the franchise to vote.
commented 2015-08-09 16:43:28 -0400

If you honestly believe that – then it scares me that there are people like you in Canada – who get to vote.

We won’t be if mulcair gets in

I love that you somehow equate Russia with Canadian and American politics. We are quite different from fucking Russia.
commented 2015-08-09 16:06:49 -0400

Who gives a shit how ANYONE else responds? You are wrong. I am proud when politicians show up at Pride and the like. I am proud when Obama changed the White House lights to the gay rainbow when gay marriage became legal across America.

What Justin did is a positive – not a negative like you conservatives are desperately trying to make it out to be.
commented 2015-08-09 15:20:37 -0400
Yes we all can support the guy pride events.. But yet again that wasn’t the question…

I was going to read another long statement.. But Fuck it! There is no use….
commented 2015-08-09 15:14:08 -0400
Jimmy, You didn’t answer my question! You just attacked me.. I am not against the anyone, and everyone has their rights to do what ever they want, except break the law…

My question to you was, now read slower…

When we have a possible future leader taking pictures with topless women, “for something he agrees with” which is great.
How do the other world leaders interact or respond to him?

The leader of the liberal party should have thought this through before doing it… The PR personnel should have thought it through… When you see leaders doing this sort of thing on the world stage.. It sends two messages;
1) The leaders of other countries will think this leader is a proud leader, as he is standing up for all the minorties in his or her country. Which is great…
2) There will be other leaders out there that will think the complete opposite, they will think this leader is still a kid,or they will think “oh this guy is going to be very easy to walk all over on our next trade deal” make sure you send someone that can intimidate him ,or the best one of all. The other leaders will think, Wow this leader hasn’t the ability to use their mind to think logically and understand things.

Our leader should make better Decisions as they are the front personnel of a nation…

Let’s (pardon the pun) “expose” the other elephant in the room. Liberals/Socialists always proclaim their support for Gays, women etc. prior to being in power. After gaining power, things can and do take a nasty turn. Witness the former “Socialist” republic of the Soviet Union. More recently, Putin’s Russia. Yep. A lot of tolerance for gays there! Actually, only the hated Harper Gov’t has ever raised concerns about the killing of gay persons in Muslim countries. May, Justin. and Mulcair have been visibly absent on this file. Could it have anything to do with their pandering for the Islamic vote? Muslims’ views on gays and women have been on display for some time. Would gaining electoral support from Muslims affect Mulcair, Justin post election? Hmmmmm………..Hint; If it keeps them in power……..?
commented 2015-08-09 14:50:50 -0400

No, conservatives like you are called homophobic and bigoted – because you show that you are exactly that by calling them faggots and make judgemental comments like this: “I don’t enjoy or want to see a bunch of drunk, pot smoking idiots cavorting around naked and making a fool out of themselves”.

Yes, because that is what Pride is.

Why gay pride parades? Why is there Caribana in Toronto? It’s the same fucking moronic question. You are an idiot. It’s one day a year for celebration. And Pride brings a shit load of money into Canada due to tourism, etc. As a conservative, you should at least be happy about what Pride does for the economy.
commented 2015-08-09 14:35:07 -0400

I think Pride is fantastic. I would take my own kids to Pride and teach them that gay people are awesome and deserve the same rights as everyone else. I am not raising my kids to be puritanical, uptight, closed minded, homophobic fucks.

When I see ANY politician show up at a Pride event – be it in America or Canada and show support for gay people – that makes me proud of them. Be it John Tory, Justin Trudeau or Obama. You view this Trudeau thing as a negative, where as most Canadians view it as a positive. It’s great PR and you don’t seem to get that.
commented 2015-08-09 14:33:48 -0400
If politicians want to go to these pride parades, who cares, if they want to lobby for less than .3% of the population for votes so be it.
I wish that the gay community would get more active in the military. We could form a gay regiment and then send them to the Middle East to fight issis. I can see them now marching across the desert in their pink camo with their rainbow flag their motto WE TAKE PRISONERS! The war on terror would be over in a week!!
commented 2015-08-09 14:33:35 -0400
Conservatives like myself are called homophobic and bigoted and other nasty names because we don’t want anything to do with Gays, Lesbians, and modern Feminists etc.
I do not go out to the Gay Pride parades, I refuse to watch them on TV. Why, because I don’t enjoy or want to see a bunch of drunk, pot smoking idiots cavorting around naked and making a fool out of themselves.
The bottom line is – You can be whatever you want and do whatever you want as long as you do not push your beliefs and agenda on me and try to stick it in my face.
You want to be gay or lesbian or a modern day Feminist then go ahead and don’t involve me. I for one do not push my heterosexual beliefs and attitudes on gays or lesbians. I am what I am, you can knock yourself out being what you want to be.
One final question – why gay pride parades? is it because gays and lesbians are so unsure of themselves they have to display to prove who they are? Or is it because gays and lesbians are trying to shove their life styles on the rest of the population?
Trudeau does not attend these parades and pose with half naked women because he supports them or identifies with them. He attends them because he thinks that will get him more votes. The same reason he attends Mosques and prays with the Muslims.
He is just a shameless a$$hole that lives by – ‘WIN AT ANY COST’.
commented 2015-08-09 14:24:34 -0400

You absolutely nailed it. There is a societal shift and the younger generation can’t fucking wait until the old crusty white archaic conservatives who have been in control for decades finally die, so that free and progressive thinking takes over, so that Canada and America for that matter can finally join the 21st century.

“Being afraid of boobs is so last century.” – that was beautiful and funny as well. Ezra and his Rebel minions might not have gotten the memo.
commented 2015-08-09 14:11:31 -0400
Peter you said that no conservative is afraid of BOOBS. I have to call you on that. I for one am very afraid of the boob on the right. The one that becomes a bigger boob every time he opens his mouth. This is a very dangerous BOOB.
Regarding the boobs on the left, you are absolutely right – no conservative is afraid of them.
commented 2015-08-09 14:07:15 -0400

Well assuming that Trudeau and his wife are raising their children to be accepting of all people and that everyone deserves the same human rights – black people, gay people, women and so forth in addition to caring about people that are less fortunate than the 1%, wall street and corporations, then I am quite sure that his kids are very proud of him.

Maybe in your backwards household – your family would be disgusted that you went to Pride, but the reaction from millions of other Canadians would be – that’s fantastic and sounds like fun.

You are a dinosaur.
commented 2015-08-09 13:56:03 -0400
Phillip, we are free thinkers… But you are completely missing the point, this man may one day, be the leader of our great nation. How in the world could you yourself believe that any other leader on this planet, would take someone that does this sort of thing serious.
commented 2015-08-09 13:55:08 -0400
Why are conservatives still so offended by the naked human body?

I just don’t understand the mentality of being so puritanical and uptight – especially now when nudity is everywhere – on the internet (and I am not even talking about porn) to incredibly popular TV shows like Game Of Thrones to movies to the media to pop culture and everything in between. It’s a little late to pretend like it’s 1950 and still be all prudish about nudity. All you are doing is confirming that you are pathetically out of touch.
commented 2015-08-09 13:47:09 -0400
Jimmy I don’t see you posting about the other story for today. You are so leftist… Come on Jimmy, do you really want to support this guy? The man has no morals. He is married and has kids. If this was me, I would have a hard time looking my daughters in theirs eyes and not feeel like a bag of shit… Then here you are arguing the fact.
Jimmy you have argued some really good points on this site. But even you have to see the problem with this, he may one day be our leader.. I still understand what the PR personnel to this man is doing. It is like they want him to fail…
commented 2015-08-09 13:37:05 -0400

If the shoe fits. Why doesn’t Stephen Harper go to Pride and show the world that gay people have the full support of the Canadian Prime Minister. It’s actually good PR.

I have seen many posters here call out gay people as faggots, show disgust for gay marriage and completely hate that Pride exists. Yes – there are many homophobic and bigoted members of The Rebel.

Phillip said, “Being afraid of boobs is so last century.”

Phillip, that is a silly thing to say. No conservative that I know, neither the ones that post here, are afraid of “boobs”.

They just feel that a PM, or rather a wannabe PM, should have some sense of modesty. Even if it is “ok” in Canada, the PM does have to represent Canada on the world stage. Not all nations are as “open thinking” as Canada.
commented 2015-08-09 09:38:19 -0400
Why was Justin wearing clothes at the gay parade? Does he think there is something wrong with the human body? or does he think there is something wrong with others being naked in public? Why is he celebrating this public nudity yet staying clothed? …and what about his children…guess they will be like him? I guess human dignity is a thing of the past. Neither Trudeau nor Mulcair will be safe for our country.

Ezra makes the great point…why have these papers censored the photo????????? After all it is nothing to be ashamed of…or is it?
commented 2015-08-09 09:07:29 -0400
Most of the modern world doesn’t care about such superficial things as this and the election will prove that. There is a societal shift and as conservatives get old and die, they are being replaced by free thinkers.

Being afraid of boobs is so last century.
