BUSTED: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Wore “Brownface” in Party Pictures from 2001

Trudeau could be the most significant political figure to be nailed for old blackface costumes yet.

The Prime Minister of Canada appeared at a party in 2001 dressed in racially suggestive “brownface.”

Justin Trudeau is an elite ultra-liberal known for politically correct politics and accusing his political opposition of being racist.

Trudeau appeared in the brownface costume at a party in 2001, at an ‘Arabian Nights’ themed party. At the time, he was a teacher at West Point Grey Academy. Canada’s Liberal Party admitted that Trudeau was featured in the picture after Time Magazine published the old photo.

Trudeau appears to be clothed as some sort of Arabian genie, decked out in brown face paint and an extravagant Middle Eastern-themed costume one might expect to see in a real-life version of ‘Aladdin.’

At the time, political correctness was a relatively new innovation in Canadian and American society. No one really would have questioned the appropriateness of his costume. But such an expose today has the chance to topple Trudeau from his place as Canadian Prime Minister.

It’ll be hard to see how the former party boy plans on wriggling out of a controversy that will leave many Canadians screaming ‘hypocrisy.’ Trudeau was also accused of groping a female journalist at a music festival in 2000, just a year before he wore the strange Arabian costume.

Trudeau also became a topic of mockery when he wore an elaborate Hindu-style costume during a state visit to India in 2018. Many Indians found his festive getup patronizing and ridiculous.

Trudeau’s costume isn’t entirely unlike the racist blackface costume worn by current Virginia Governor Ralph Northam in a college yearbook. Big League Politics exposed the photo of Northam wearing blackface in a manner intended to mock African Americans.

Trudeau apparently plans on addressing the photo Wednesday evening, having been taken by storm in controversy after the racist photo emerged this morning.

He’ll have to face the press and admit the ultra-politically correct and liberal politics he’s championed have been nothing but a cruel lie, meant to figuratively mask him in a aura of moral superiority.

Turkey’s Erdogan is Threatening To Convert One of Christianity’s Most Historic Churches Back into a Mosque

The 6th century church is currently a museum.

Turkey’s Islamist president is threatening to convert one of the world’s most historic and iconic Christian churches into an Islamic mosque, in a move designed to appease Tayyip Erdogan’s political base and insult Christians.

The Council of State of Turkey is expected to rule this week on a request by Erdogan to convert the Hagia Sophia Museum into an Islamic mosque, and international observers are expecting that the court system will sign off on Erdogan’s initiative to turn the former church into a mosque.

The Hagia Sophia Church was constructed in Constantinople(today known as Istanbul) in A.D. 537 by Justinian, the then-Emperor of the Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire. The church was a global symbol of the Byzantine civilization throughout the Middle Ages. It was converted into an Islamic mosque in the year 1453 when the Ottoman Empire captured Constantinople under the leadership of Mehmed II, a moment in history that Erdogan and his supporters point to as a moment of national pride.

When Turkey emerged from the declining Ottoman Empire shortly after World War I, the nation’s contemporary founder, Kemal Ataturk, arranged for the building to be placed into a use as a museum. The building, which is Turkey’s most visited tourist attraction to this day, has remained as such since 1935.

The church remains a holy symbol to hundreds of millions of Orthodox Christians throughout the world today. Bartholomew I, the Christian bishop who holds the Byzantine title of “Patriarch of Constantinople” in Istanbul, warned of the consequences of such an inflammatory cultural act. “The potential conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque will turn millions of Christians around the world against Islam… What can I say as a Christian clergyman and the Greek patriarch in Istanbul? Instead of uniting, a 1,500-year-old heritage is dividing us. I am saddened and shaken.

The 6th century building is not only noteworthy to two major world religions(originally Christianity), but is the most architecturally impressive building preserved from the early Middle Ages. Many of Constantinople’s most historic churches and buildings, such the Church of the Holy Apostles, were destroyed by the Ottoman conquerors in the decades following the 1453 Siege of Constantinople.

The Hagia Sophia church contains some of the most-well preserved medieval Byzantine images of Christ, Mary, various saints, and several Eastern Roman Emperors. As images of the human form are prohibited in Islam, some have questioned whether the artwork- which was uncovered from beneath a coating material when the building was phased from an Ottoman mosque into a museum- will be destroyed in the event it’s turned back into a mosque.

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, the government of Greece(which views itself as the inheritor of the Byzantine Empire’s Greek-speaking legacy), and United Nations cultural institutions have spoken against the planned usurpation of the historic church. Pope Francis has been conspicuously silent, thus far.
