Rob Ford's Hideous and Hollow Apology
It was of course a monstrous sight. Rob Ford telling the world, and I mean the world, I'm so sorry I've acted like a brutish bully, and I'm even more sorry I hurt myself.
"When I look back on some of the things I have said and some of the things I did when I was using, I am ashamed, embarrassed and humiliated," Ford told reporters at an invitation-only news conference Monday, when he returned to city hall after a two-month absence.
Rehab was HELL.
But I'm cured now and I STILL want to cling to power !!!!
Near the end of his remarks, Ford talked about his resolve to win back the trust of Torontonians and to continue his work at city hall.
"I look forward to serving you for many, many more years," said Ford, also defending his record over the past four years.
Only to walk slowly out of the room without taking questions from the few reporters he had allowed to witness that pathetic scripted performance.
Even though there are so many questions he STILL hasn't answered.
In March, you were caught on tape saying: “I’m the most racist guy around. I’m the mayor of Toronto.” Do you think it is acceptable for Toronto to have a racist mayor?
Like does he REALLY believe that one of the most diverse cities on earth should have a racist mayor?
Why does he treat women like dirt? And why is he such a disgusting anti-gay bigot?
You were caught on a different tape saying you had stopped supporting Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak because he supported “all the gays.” In the first video that appears to show you smoking crack cocaine, you refer to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau as a “f-g.” Do you have a problem with gay people?
Does this look like HIS city?
Do people become bigots when they get looped, or do they just reveal who they really are?
And does THIS city deserve him?
And of course the answer is NO. That city is too big and too good for him.
But the depressing part is that because so many Canadians hate Toronto, Rob Ford has so many enablers all over the country.
You can see it in that chart. You can read it the comments of every Canadian newspaper.
Because even though Toronto, like every other city in Canada, is part of our common heritage, putting our accomplishments down, or hating each other, is so tragically Canadian.
And that even though Rob Ford isn't just shaming Toronto, he's degrading us ALL in the eyes of the world...
Because many people in other countries may never have heard of that other Con clown.
Ford's good buddy Stephen Harper....
Whose Con operatives helped orchestrate his hollow apology.
But they've all heard of Robbie and they're all laughing at us. They think that Canada is next best thing to Duck Dynasty, and that we're all as crass and as vulgar as him.
And Ford thinks HE'S been humiliated? Gimme a break.
But then that's why although I am a proud Montrealer, I'm going to help the people of this city clean up that national embarrassment, better than any fancy rehab could.
And once and for all.
That crass bully bigot has run out of chances.
And that ghastly stain will be removed...
