Yes he calls the Toronto Chief of Police a homophobic slur and yes he mimics Jamaican patois but as we all learned back in November being in a drunken stupor is like being in the movie The Purge. You have a free pass to do/say anything
Great article from the Grid pointing out the hypocrisy behind Toronto mayor Rob Ford’s recent comments regarding the photo of a public servant apparently sleeping at their desk.
It really is depressing that this is what Toronto, the most multicultural city in the world, has for a mayor. At first I was angry and confused, then anger turned into comedy as his blunders were farcical. Now I’m just sad. Sad that Torontonians have another 2 years and 3 months of this bigoted buffoon (no Ford just because that word contains ‘buff’ in it does not mean I’m complimenting you).
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.
The legal opinion was sought out by councillor Joe Mihevc (Ward 21, St. Paul’s).
