Toronto Mayor's Radio Show Mouthpiece for Homophobia
Rob Ford’s weekly radio show with brother brought their standard low brow discourse to a whole other level in their latest broadcast. The guest on the show, David Menzies a Toronto Sun reporter, compared homosexuality to obesity, claiming it effects your health as you are more likely to get HIV. He also took shots at a reporter with a rival newspaper, the Toronto Star, claiming the Star sent the most effeminate reporter they had to look into a story that has caused it’s own media firestorm - http://metronews.ca/voices/ford-for-toronto/129795/ford-angry-reporter/
Rob Ford has been no stranger to homophobia, refusing to attend any LGBTQ related events, including Toronto Pride (3rd largest pride festival in the world), claiming that if you’re not gay or a drug user then you don’t need to worry about getting AIDS, endorsing a candidate known for homophobic views and sermons (claiming it is evil, and a disease needing to be cured), he now has this to add to it.
