Mr Scheer Goes To The Basketball Game
I live just a few blocks away from the Scotiabank Arena, so I'm pretty familiar with the Raptor fans who gather in the square they call Jurassic Park.
And since I'm not a basketball fan, and they're mostly very young and really noisy, and it's all happening right next to my supermarket, until very recently I considered them a nuisance.
But not any longer.
Not since I saw how many of them reacted when Andrew Scheer turned up at a recent playoff game.
They weren't rude or anything, most of them didn't even bother to look at him.
And those who did didn't seem TOO unfriendly...
But later some Raptor fans let him know what they really thought about his visit, and it wasn't pretty...
And as you can imagine, some of the others were a LOT worse.
But then that was Scheer's mistake. He should have realized that Raptor fans tend to be younger and more multicultural, and multiracial than the whiter older fans of the Maple Leafs losers who play in the same building.
And more representative of the New Toronto, the most diverse city in the world.
“The Raptors have changed the way people see basketball. The team is so diverse that it tells you this is what Toronto is about, this is what Canada is about.”
And in the New Toronto most of the young have no time for Andrew Scheer and his far-right bigoted Cons.
So I was glad to see that last night those fans got the reward they richly deserved.
A last second victory over the Philadelphia 76ers...
And a buzzer beater ticket to the Eastern Conference finals.
And I must say Justin Trudeau seemed a lot more enthusiastic than poor Andrew Scheer.
But then who can blame Scheer eh?
He must know the future is young, comes in all shades, and belongs to us not him.
So I wouldn't be surprised if that was his very last basketball game...
Poor Schmearmonger, he tries so hard to look like a winner.
But it just isn't working.
A bigot is a loser, and so is a Con.
And there's nothing he can do about it...
