The Day Rob Ford Was Exposed as a Bestial Bigot
When I went past Toronto's City Hall today I was happy to see the beautiful rainbow flag flying, like it is in so many other Canadian cities from St John's to Vancouver.
As a gesture of solidarity with the brutally oppressed LGBT people of Russia.
So you can imagine how angry I felt when I learned that the Con hog Rob Ford had tried to take it down.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is being called homophobic after he took exception to the flying of the rainbow flag at city hall during the Olympics, saying the games are about “being patriotic to your country” and not about “sexual preference.”
And had caused an unseemly ruckus by shooting his big crack mouth off.
“This is about the Olympics. This is about being patriotic to your country. This is not about someone’s sexual preference. No I do not agree with putting up the rainbow flag. We should put our Canadian flag up. I put my Canadian flag up in the window,” Mr. Ford said.
And strangely enough all I could think about, was if I had waited a day I could have saved myself the trouble of writing this post.
Where I attempted to prove once again, that Rob Ford is a disgusting anti-gay bigot no matter what him or his brother Doug say.
Because today he proved it HIMSELF, beyond all doubt, as councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam pointed out this afternoon:
“I believe Rob Ford is letting it all hang loose,” Ms.Wong-Tam said. “I think he is clearly demonstrating that he is homophobic, that he is bigoted.”
Ms. Wong-Tam said cities from Vancouver to St. John’s are flying the rainbow flag during the Olympics. “It doesn’t take anything away from Canada. It dovetails into the Canadian values we already know, which is standing up for human rights,” she said.
So tonight I don't have anything more to say. I'm too tired after a brutal week to write another long post on the same subject.
Except to thank all the good Canadians who even in the excitement of the Olympics, haven't forgotten those brave LGBT people who are fighting for their lives in Putin's Russia.
Including these who were arrested today...
And who after being beaten and threatened with sexual assault, were reported to be still singing in their cages.
I also want to give special thanks to the mayors of St John's and Vancouver for leading the charge.
And to Ottawa mayor Jim Watson for showing how a real Canadian mayor behaves...
And as for the ghastly bigot Rob Ford all I want to say to him is, thanks for proving me right.
You bubbah BIGOT.
Thanks for revealing your inner hog...
The one I always knew was there from the day you were ELECTED.
And thanks for motivating me to work even harder to defeat you, and your buddy the stealthy homophobe Stephen Harper.
Who will wear you like a bra or a shroud...
Until the end of his term in office.
The force of the rainbow is with us now, so we can't lose eh?
And sooner rather than later.
You will BOTH go down together...
