Hey guys, why we always gotta attack each other. This is our time of togetherness. Our leader loves blackface and breaking the law, and the opposition is comprised of a soggy piece of bread who can’t deliver a sure thing if his life depended on it and two people gunning to run the country straight into the ground.

This, truly, is a time to be alive.

You think with a capable leader the Cons would be tied with the Libs scandal after scandal? Even Harper is a better candidate than Scheer.

How many votes did the NDP drive to the Libs when they elected Singh? Angry Tom would have ate him for lunch.

It isn't just about who the leadership candidate is.

I'm annoyed because this is getting way more traction than probably the most criminal action undertaken by a Canadian government, to come to light, in my lifetime.

Even for the "WELL HURR, SCHEER HOMOPHOBIA" people, how many examples must be put in to the tapestry of behaviour before this guy is completely recognized as the total fraud he is?

Yeah it is. If you ran a toilet bowl as a candidate in my riding, it would win.

The irony is, judging by your posts, you're no different. There are political hacks on both sides of the spectrum. For the liberals you have the Johnny Makaov's on CP and the Reddit users Resolute mentioned. For the right, and this is where it gets ironic, posters like the_only_turek_fan, Transplant_99 and yourself.

Weitz is one of the biggest political hacks on this forum and for him to call others hypocrites is so over the top and lacking in self awareness it's comical.

I'm none to keen on the Liberals and would much rather see the NDP in power but I don't give a bolloxs about the Aladin picture, I am not sure how you can go to a fancy dress party with an Arabian Nights theme and not be dressed up like an arab.

I don't think dressing up as a character from a book or film is an indication of racism at all.

I'm hoping this is sarcasm. Who gives a crap about him being culturally / racially insensitive 20 years ago when there are legitimate concerns about him from a leadership perspective, from the perspective of ethics, his hypocrisy, etc. that are from within his current leadership term?

Seriously, as someone who doesn't like ANY of the current candidates, I cannot wrap my head around the idea that all the other gaffes he's committed aren't disqualifying to some people, but him being an idiot two decades ago somehow moves the needle.

The outfit itself is not bad, but the colouring of skin is offensive.

There's a reason why blackface is a thing of the past. Because it's insulting and offensive to black people.
