Criticizing our politicians has always been considered strength of our democracy, but when one of them is viciously condemned over something personal that may or may not have happened and another one gets a free pass after squandering hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ money and lying about that, it seems we have a problem.
Mayor Rob Ford won his position with overwhelming voters’ support and became the first mayor in the recent history to deliver on his promises. Premier Kathleen Wynne tried to cover up the huge losses from cancelling the gas plants and spent her first few months of her term as an unelected premier drumming about what a cool dyke she is.
There is something odd about the people who evaluate the politicians in such a strange way. The mystery is quickly resolved when we look at who they are. Most of them come from the unproductive core of Toronto and have never had real jobs – professional protestors and “anti-poverty” activists; militant homosexual activists; government union employees; talentless hacks promoted as artists, and simple bums. The Toronto media tends to support those people presenting them as some unbeatable and morally superior force.
They all are united in their feeling of superiority over the people who actually work for a living. They know exactly what changes have to be done in the society and, most importantly, they know better than anybody else how to spend other people’s money. When somebody like Rob Ford tries to limit their free access to the public cookie jar, they strike back violently.
Yesterday’s rally at Nathan Phillips square was a great opportunity to see samples of that segment of our society. Over 4,000 people signed up on Facebook for the event to demand Rob Ford’s resignation. Only a few hundred showed up and their numbers quickly dwindled. Of course, the mainstream media lied that thousands were at the square.
It was a disorganized and boring event and the participants spent their time writing with chalk slogans and condemnations urging Rob Ford to go away. Many of their writings were rude, obscene or hostile and none of them showed any traces of common sense. It never occurred to them that in Canada we have a due process before convicting somebody (of course that doesn’t apply to the human rights commissions).
The public employees’ unions skipped the event (maybe they were too embarrassed to be there) and that left the usual Toronto downtown suspects. The old activists reliving their glory days were a large part of the event.
Some real and some wannabe reporters tried to get a story from those people, but even for the manipulative Toronto media that was like squeezing water from a stone.
As I said, the occupy types spent their time scribbling slogans on the ground. That was probably the hardest work they have done in ages.
The homosexual community, which has been hounding the mayor for many years, did also have a presence at the rally.
Their indignation was well represented in the writings, like this one:
That is quite typical, because in Toronto the homosexuals have the idea that the whole country should revolve around them. Everyone, who has even the slightest disagreement with the propaganda that promotes their peculiar lifestyle, is sued, silenced and obligatory called “homophobe”. I am not aware of Rob Ford getting any money from them. If they mean the mythical riches that the gay parade brings in, if that was true, how come the organizers show up at City Hall each year to beg and whine for public grants?
Most of the writings were unimaginative, repeating the same demands in the same language.
That practice of the lefties to write condemnations, which are displayed in public, has a striking resemblance with the practices of the Cultural Revolution in China. The Hongweibing (Red Guards), Chairman Mao’s army of young idiots, did exactly the same to condemn and dispose of the enemies of the “progressive forces” who have never been tried and convicted. Seeing this in Canada is a sign that the lefty stupidity is more resilient than the worst weeds.
The Torontonian Red Guards didn’t shy away from charging Rob Ford with murder – the weird guy in the picture above hinted at that in his sign – “Etobi-murder.”
Other scribes were more direct:
In the best traditions of the Toronto Star innuendo Rob Ford turns into a shady figure of the underground crime world. That’s not strange, because the Star and the Globe and Mail blackmail was highly valued by the participants:
The artsy downtown had problems with the fiscal policy of Rob Ford:
Yes, taxes… They are a minor issue if you are a welfare bum of any kind, who doesn’t pay any taxes. The typical downtown inhabitant cannot figure out that the majority of people don’t want their taxes wasted on useless causes.
It was nice to read the lament of one of those people:
And I never realized how a mayor could fuck up somebody’s life. To suffer that much, you must be a complete loser, who can’t do anything on his own. That sounds like a confession of a disgruntled unionized garbage collector or a homosexual activist, who lost his grant.
That’s clever… So far there is no proof of link between Ford and cocaine. If you remember, Ford’s rival during the last election, George Smitherman, was a self-confessed cocaine junkie. Other than the lying dyke at Queen’s Park, Smitherman is the second prominent politician that the homosexual community of Toronto managed to produce. As an integral part of McGuinty gang of crooks, he was responsible for squandering billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money (eHealth anybody?).
Nobody on the left raised the issues of his addiction and incompetence during the campaign. Verily, verily I say unto you – if you are a homosexual in Toronto, you can do no wrong. If you’re a fat heterosexual guy who wants to cut taxes, all you do is wrong. Speaking of being fat, that didn’t escape the attention of the progressive people:
Ford is a pig – that’s very classy. Speaking of classy, take a look at this:
Looking at the losers who attended the rally, it’s more than clear that a mayor whose campaign slogan was “respect for the taxpayers” is not their guy. I remember at a reception during the mayoral campaign I asked Joe Pantalone about his platform. He spent a few minutes explaining with excitement how he was planning to build in Toronto the largest cricket field in North America.
That’s the kind of guy the left loves – who spends our money on useless feel-good projects. I think they have that guy, or rather gal, now. Judging from the newsletters she sends me, Olivia Chow is ready to become the new mayor of Toronto.
She and the anti-Ford people are a perfect match made in hell. Just like them, she has never done a day of honest work in her life. Her late husband Jack Layton, known for his escapades in gay bathhouses and affinity to Asian massage hookers, was a virtuoso in the art of separating the taxpayers from their money. I can see Jack and Olivia’s fans salivating at the prospect of Olivia approving millions and millions in grants for useless art projects and equally useless special interest groups.
The fight for Toronto rages on…
