Rob Ford and the Sinister King Con Conspiracy
Well by now just about every Canadian has probably seen the horrifying video of Rob Ford stomping around like a bull in a dining room.
Rob Ford, the mayor of Canada’s largest city, has been caught on video in an impaired rant saying he is going to kill someone and “rip his f---ing throat out.” Ford slurs his words as he staggers around an unknown dining room, apparently high, ranting gibberish and gesticulating wildly.
And since my friend Aidan the shepherd, in the barren highlands of Scotland, has also seen it, I figure the whole world has too eh?
And while that may not bother the Fordzilla.
“All I can say is, again, I’ve made mistakes. I just wanted to come out and tell you I saw a video. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what? I don’t have a problem with that.”
It does bother me, a lot. Because I want my country to be respected not mocked...
But despite that horror, or this embarrassment. Or the intervention of Brutus Beefcake.
Former wrestler Brutus (The Barber) Beefcake was escorted out of Toronto City Hall today after gathering outside Mayor Rob Ford’s office with a pair of shears and a submarine sandwich.
I'm glad that scary video has seen the light of day, because it exposes Ford for who he really is.
Not the spoiled son of a millionaire posing as a champion of ordinary people, or the leader of the moronic Ford Nation. Not a man child or big teddy bear brought down by substance abuse.
But a bully and a thug who seems to enjoy the company of criminals....
And who as the hapless front man of Stephen Harper's plan to batter down the walls of the progressive bastion of Toronto, has not only corrupted City Hall, but may also have corrupted some elements in the police force.
Dig a little into the Lisi documents and it’s safe to say that there is more to those police leaks suggesting a protection racket around Ford within the force than most of us want to believe.
Some hint of that surfaces on page 351, paragraph 208 e) when drug squad officers are staking out Richview Cleaners, waiting for Lisi to walk into their trap. And out-of-the-blue there’s a “[police] radio call to the mayor’s house” that interrupts the sting operation. That’s followed by telephone chatter between Lisi, the mayor and Price.
For this question should trouble ANYONE who cares about democracy in Canada.
What was it that made the mayor believe he had more friends in the police department than Bill Blair does?
It's the real scandal. The Harperite conspiracy to enable, protect, and maintain in power a Con like Rob Ford, for their own crass political reasons.
The sinister operatives who have propped him up like a dummy, instead of sending him to rehab long ago.
Even though he's a bully, a brutish bigot, a compulsive liar, a man who likes to hang with violent criminals.
And a man totally unfit to be the mayor of Canada's largest city...
This astounding megalopolis that in the few years I have lived here I have watched grow ever bigger. The one that in a sense belongs to everyone in Canada.
And like everything you see in this picture, including the island where I took it from, does not belong to Stephen Harper now, and NEVER will.
For it is still a progressive bastion, its resistance has weakened Ford and his redneck supporters like Don Cherry, and put a spoke in Harper's plans to pose as a populist.
These are tough times for peddlers of right-wing populism. Ford’s disgraceful fall comes at a time when Stephen Harper — a big Ford supporter until recently — has been vocally targeting the ‘elites’.
The example set by an ‘outsider’ conservative like Ford can only be a deep source of aggravation to the PM. It hardly increases the public’s appetite for that brand of populism.
Ford likely will be gone before long and the international image of this country — battered for having suffered such a buffoon in high office — will be the better for it.
How we actually rid ourselves of Rob Ford remains to be seen. Will the province step in and remove him from office?
Or will it take a people's revolt?
Who knows eh? But one thing is for sure.
Enough is ENOUGH.
And the basic plan is quite simple.
First we will take one King Con gorilla off our backs.
Or push it off the CN Tower.
And then we'll remove the other...
