#1 I predict, by the end of the day, this will become a "teaching moment" requiring mandatory sensitivity training for all Canadians

He's trying to be cute, but he's missing the point. As the Jordan Peterson affair shows, Canada now compels speech.

There won't be a "teaching moment"; there will be government compulsion.

This reality is what caused Peterson to step forth and stop being an obscure Canadian academic and be a champion for a simple but absolutely fundamental principle of democracy: except for oaths in extremely rare and tightly circumscribed formal situations, the state cannot compel any form of expression.

#2 Virtue signaling is often used to covers up ones own vices.

#3 Yesterday I had a thin crust "pizza" with "Italian" sausage and Bruschetta (it was really tasty!). Does that make me an evil person, too? This "Cultural Appropriation = Racism" schtick is getting old.

#4 What do you call an onigiri with jalapeno jelly filling?

#5 This is just stupid. So what, who cares how he dressed on Halloween! Next thing you know frat houses will no longer have toga parties. People need to stop this Woke assed thin skinned cry baby crap. Trudeau's real problem is his hypocrisy.

Dunno about the onigiri but the jalapeno is hot.

#8 So the scolds just now had the idea to look through the Prime Minstral's yearbook? Didn't raise a hand when after his cos-play in India? Or as the other Indian? Oh, and two more 'found' all at the same time? The same group of people turn an eye at that movie White Chicks? They can all go lick a snake.

That his paparazzi guard is so blatantly covering for him is embarrassing. I'd tell them I have an upside down stool waiting for them, but I'm afraid I'd attract four and suffer a spin the bottle session.

It is a case of the guilty lecturing the innocent, and the innocent paying for the sins of the guilty:

We’re going to ban military-style assault rifles in Canada.

— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) September 20, 2019

That is outrageous.

#9 The whole thing is embarrassing for both Turdeau and us Canuckistanians.

A politicain, admired
by a lot of his people, but tired
of hiding his place
while dressed in blackface
decided at last to retire.

#10 The problem is the left no longer knows why they are angry at things they just want the world to burn. There was a time when blackface meant mocking people of color. When that happens it should be denounced as racist but there is no evidence that's what was going on. Just putting on dark make-up is not necessarily racist but that doesn't matter anymore.
