Emblematic of What’s Wrong With Toronto?
I'm just checking my RSS feeds now, so I only just learnt that I'm emblematic of what’s wrong with Toronto. In fact, according to this entry from my pal Freddie P., I'm why Toronto has no chance. Here's a sample of what you'll find at torontomike.com this morning...
I truly admire my friend Mike Boon, but Boon is so emblematic of what’s wrong with the Toronto. Just go to his website and search Rob Ford and you'll see what I mean.
While the mayor and his NDP council systematically ruin the city, Boon prefers to put his focus on Rob Ford and criticize his so called political incorrectness and his personality.
Mike is like so many other bleeding heart Liberals and socialists in Toronto. They like to jump all over the Ford for his brash personality and some of his outrageous statements, while ignoring the real problems.
If it wasn’t for Rob Ford, so much of the incompetent, inept and wasteful policies at Toronto city hall would go unchecked. If it wasn’t for Rob Ford, the city of Toronto might find itself in worse shape than it already is.
While David Miller and his band of yahoos enact policies that push the city in reverse, Mike Boon and his like prefer to worry about whether someone is called an Oriental instead of an Asian.
While the David Miller regime mismanages tax dollars, and wastes money on free lunches, free trips and golf memberships, people like Boon prefer to focus on the fact that Rob Ford was overheard using profanity at a hockey game.
I'm guessing Fred has just read my Rob Ford Video Hits entry from earlier this week. That same entry caught Humble Howard's attention as well, and prompted him to write this entry which could have been titled "Why Toronto Has A Chance". Here's a taste of what my pal Humble wrote...
Years ago when I used to host a little radio show, Rob Ford was an amusing guest from time to time. I mean both he was amusing and a guest, from time to time.
Anyway, he was the aforementioned simply because he was a "loose" cannon. He would say outrageous things and it was fun to hear him slam the other nitwits on City Council.
Well I guess that act has worn a little thin. The Asian-non apology thing, the threatening to kill your wife thing and now this nasty little clip.
I got this off of the Mighty Boon's site and it's sickening. It is Rob Fords' true colors and the reason he will never be Mayor of Toronto. It is the type of thing that will be run over and over again should he even think of trying for office.
The people in his ward might be cool with good old Rob's antics but his schtick has gotten old and it certainly won't play outside of his inner circle.
As the only one of the three of us residing in the 416, I'm glad Rob Ford will never be mayor of my city. It's not just that he uses the wrong words, it's that he's an obnoxious, lying bully with little respect for the diversity of this city. He's somehow found his niche as the expense policeman who brags about his refusal to spend city money to run his office, but he's a one-trick pony. He hits that one note over and over again, and even if there's credence in his single point, it's drowned out by his homophobic, close-minded, dinosaur antics.
It's not about his words, it's about his character, and Toronto deserves far better.
