The Rob Ford lynch mob should be ashamed

...Nor is it clear why the media continue to pursue him like a pack of hounds baying at full throttle. Ford has already responded to their questions. He said: “I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine. As for a video, I cannot comment on a video that I have never seen or does not exist.”

What more do they want him to say? “Yes, I am guilty of smoking crack cocaine and of starring in a video I have never seen or does not exist. But I’ll admit it anyway because you are left wing and therefore everything you say and do is correct, while I am just the fat, rumpled, right-wing mayor you are trying to oust from office every way you can, because you can’t get over the election results.”

"As part of the investigation leading to the raids on Thursday, officers obtained telephone wire-tap evidence.

A highly-placed source confirms to CTV News that on those wiretaps, persons of interest discussed that video in detail, and referred to the mayor's alleged presence in the video."

Another news report referring to an unnamed source -

Well, I guess we should just undo the last election in Toronto because of that, eh?

Not at all. I think it'll be a proud moment in Toronto's history to have a sitting mayor testify at the trial of his drug gangster friends.

How about "I have NEVER used crack cocaine while in office and I'm willing to take a drug test and a polygraph to prove it?"

And who exactly is undoing an election?

There's really no mechanism to remove Ford from office, and it's now clear that he's lying when he says that he wants an election as soon as possible because he'd resign otherwise.

But the conspiracy out to get Ford keeps getting wider, doesn't it? It now includes Gawker, the Star, the Globem roughly a third of Ford's own staff, Nick Kouvalis, CTV and the cops (who were apparently investigating before the story went public.)

Look, if this is the hill that want conservatism to die on, feel free. It just seems like a tremendous waste to me.

Keep in mind also, that you undermine your own calls for accountability toward the provincial Liberals' wasting a zillion dollars on entirely political and completely legal gas plant cancellations, while insisting that you need more than a videotape and a police investigation of your guy flouting the Criminal Code of Canada.

exactly how many run-ins with the law are you willing to give Ford before you admit that HE might be the problem?

I'll tell you what Skippy. Instead of basing your opinion on The Toronto Star and Globe, try going down to City Hall and watching Council in action.

Ford's behavior has consistently been measured and professional, which is in stark contrast to clowns like Gord Perks, Paula Fletcher, Shelley Carroll, etc. Watching them behave they way they do in public, I would hope they were on crack. Because at least then they'd have some sort of excuse for their idiotic public petulance and tantrums.

And that's the thing about most of the people I know who hate Ford so much. Not one of them has seen him do his job in real life (and I have) and are basing everything they think on very biased media accounts.

"When Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s name first surfaced on wiretaps in a lengthy guns-and-drugs investigation, the senior command at police headquarters had to figure out how on Earth they would handle it."

Damn that leftard Christie Blatchford and her unnamed sources. Blatch and her friends at that NDP stalwart, the National Post, have been gunning for Ford since day one!


Richard K said...

Here are a couple more lines from the Blatchford article, which it appears you either didn't read all the way through or understand:

"It’s also worth noting that merely being mentioned, or the alleged video being mentioned, in a wiretapped conversation doesn’t constitute evidence of wrongdoing against Mr. Ford."

"Mr. Ford wasn’t and isn’t under investigation."

There you go again, giving credence to unnamed sources.

Richard K said...

Bill Blair's not an unnamed source.

It's amazing - blind hatred of Ford renders some people unable to read, or in the case of Toronto Star columnists like Rosie DiManno, unable to write.

@ Skippy

This is beyond stupid. First of polygraphs are sketchy. Which is why they are not used in court. Second, crack cocaine only stays in your body for 2 days after use. A drug test proves nothing anyway.
