Pretty much.  I remember when Tyler Bozak got flak for dressing up as Michael Jackson for Halloween.  Really?  It was coming out of respect for Michael Jackson, not to dredge up memories of black face.

Somehow Scheer thinks he is. Clearly he has a friend down south who sussed this out for him. The timing is all too convenient and the majority of people are being played like the fiddles they are.

A response seems unnecessary. I hate posturing.

I seriously doubt that he has connections at Time Magazine.  Most likely someone from that party remembered that night and went to the Canadian press who most likely chickened out on printing it and punted it off to the US press.

 

Find out what press related company the parent company of Time Magazine owns in Canada and you'll be halfway to figuring out what happened.

He's trying to score points while simultaneously weakening his opponent.  Politics 101.

Cons looking for anything trying to make him look bad. 

 

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for an apology from Scheer about his homophobic remarks.

It's so obvious it's almost cringeworthy

So called conservatives jumping onto the PC bandwagon is pathetic.

 

And the so called liberals jumping all over their so called leader are pathetic losers.

 

Where is the bottom of the PC cesspit? Tune in tomorrow on Commons TV!

 

I think he is a terrible fraud of a politician, and still, could care less about this.

It's racist. Trudeau said so himself. Good for him for owning it. If it's not a big deal, then why don't you guys go ahead and wear brownface. No takers? Didn't think so.

I'm surprised he did that in the 2000's.

Even in the 90's a white boy going blackface would get his ass kicked.

 

Rich kids suck.

Not if you're used to seeing it.  We have a tradition here called the "October Surprise" where around the end of October the opposition party reveals a scandal they've known about for a while in hopes that their opponent won't be able to recover from it by election day in November.

Exactly. If someone idolizes someone of another race, how is it insulting?

 

When I was 12, I idolized Jimi Hendrix and wanted to dress up like him for Halloween one year. I got the clothes and guitar down but didn’t quite look right. I wanted to apply some makeup to pull it off, but my mom advised against it. She understood how much I wanted to be Hendrix and said that it wouldn’t go over. 

JT was an adult and should have known better.  He was smart to immediately apologize.  This event will now disappear.  JT will lead the Liberals to a majority.  Scheer is just too damn weak and pudgy looking to lead anything but the library club.
