Canada’s “woke” liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got some bad news last night when yet another photo of him in blackface surfaced one day before his country’s election.
The photo, released by Canadian Proud, shows Trudeau wearing a turban and robe while he sticks out his tongue with his face covered in dark makeup.

Daily Mail reported that photos of Trudeau in blackface first surfaced in 2019, and he quickly issued a groveling apology. The images were taken at an Arabian Nights party in 2001 when Trudeau was a 29-year-old teacher.
“I knew, even as a kid, that this type of behaviour was wrong. So, he was either completely ignorant or simply did not care. Terrible,” one Twitter user wrote, with another adding, “Canada about to become the laughing stock of the world by re-electing this Clown face. Can we be that stupid?!”
While liberals have tried to stand by Trudeau by saying that the photos are old and that he has apologized for them, conservatives have called out this hypocrisy by saying that the left would quickly “cancel” any conservative who had these kinds of photos surface.
“It’s equally weird seeing people apologize for blatant racism–especially people who would not allow the same tolerance to anyone else. For me, that sort of thing is a red line -regardless of affiliation,” one social media user commented. Someone else added, “I am not a Conservative, but everyone time a Justin Trudeau photo of him wearing #blackface comes out, I just can’t understand how he was never held accountable by the party, party members, and supporters.”
While Trudeau has yet to comment on this latest image, he said in 2019 that wearing blackface was “unacceptable” and that he has enjoyed “layers of privilege” in his life. He also claimed that he took “full responsibility” for what he did.
“What I did hurt them, hurt people who shouldn’t have to face intolerance and bigotry because of their identity,” he said at the time. “This is something that I deeply, deeply regret.”
“Darkening your face, regardless of the context or the circumstances, is always unacceptable because of the racist history of blackface,” he continued. “I should have understood that then and I never should have done it.”
“It wasn’t a good idea, it was a terrible idea. It was something that minimizes and takes advantage of a reality that I have not had to live with – of being discriminated against, being marginalized for the color of my skin,” Trudeau said. “I come from a place of privilege. I have to recognize that I let a lot of people down, and I stand here today to reflect on that and ask for forgiveness.”
If photos like this came out of a conservative wearing blackface, that would be the end of his or her political career, as liberals would be so up in arms about it that they would swiftly cancel them. Yet Trudeau is being given a free pass because he is a liberal, which means leftist “woke” rules don’t apply to him.
The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze.
