Going full Alinsky on someone, making them live by their own rules, is only worthwhile if you like the rules in the first place. It's a freaking costume. A costume. Trudeau isn't a racist any more than Ralph Northam, governor of Virginia and blackface-wearer from back in the day, is. In fact, almost no one in America is truly racist.
We're good people and that should be the default assessment of our fellow citizens. So the guy wore a costume you wouldn't wear yourself. So what? On Halloween, almost everyone is wearing a costume you wouldn't wear yourself. It doesn't mean that they're in league with the devil. It's a costume.
Back in the Carboniferous Era, I was at a college Halloween party. A girl who was a friend of mine was wearing a saloon girl costume. She looked hot and ended up with a boyfriend by the end of the night. She told me, "Halloween is great because a girl can dress slutty that night and not get judged for it!" We had a laugh because Halloween is fun because we get to play Let's Pretend like we're 5-year-olds and being a 5-year-old for one night is fun.
No fun for you! No fun any more! No fun! None! Racism!
Conservatives think they're so clever imitating Saul Alinsky, who was a tedious bore himself.
I'm wading through the sludge that is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. It's horrible. In fact, it's recursively horrible or maybe mutli-dimensionally horrible or perhaps it's over-horribled as it's crammed with examples of every kind of horribility that a book might ever have.Instead, conservatives might , oh, I don't know, act like conservatives and embrace conservative ideas. You know, all that personal freedom and personal responsibility rot we talk when we're not trying to rack up cheap points like a QB padding his stats with garbage time passing in the 4th quarter and his team down by 20. Yep, you scored a TD on Trudeau. Yay! Now you're going to lose by 13 instead of 20. Good for you.
Jumping up and down on that cringing milksop Trudeau is only helping to reinforce 3 things we should hate.
So cut it out. Stand for freedom. Stand for granting the assumption of decency to your fellow man. Stand for being able to tell the difference between seeing someone wearing a costume and storming the beaches at Normandy.
