From the people who brought you the Mark Steyn Hate Speech Trial!
“If people of conscience unit and vote strategically, Ford can be beaten,” according to Canada Arab Federation Vice President Ali Mallah. “It’s a two-man race, between George Smitherman and Ford. If the union (CUPE) and part of the left switch, Smitherman could be mayor.”
Mallah knows a lot about “beating” — here’s video of him threatening my husband.
Mr. Mallah cited several examples of Mr. Ford’s behaviour during his term on council to illustrate what he means.
“He almost got in a fistfight at a hockey game. Then he lied about it and later admitted it … He’s made some rude comments about Italians, Somalis and gays and lesbians.”
Woo-hoo!!! And don’t knock “fights at hockey games,” you damn foreigner.
Mr. Mallah also feels that Toronto needs a leader who can represent all of Toronto, a city where he says 52% of the voters are not white; and Mr. Ford’s extreme right-wing agenda is exclusive, not inclusive.
Which explains why Ford’s leading in the polls and his fundraisers are heavily populated by Asians and black people oh wait…
Toronto businesswoman and recent Mayoral candidate Sarah Thompson recently dropped out of the race to support Mr. Smitherman, in an effort to prevent Mr. Ford from becoming Mayor. This is all the more surprising considering Ms. Thompson recently received a ringing endorsement from right-wing ideologue Conrad Black – who never seems to miss an opportunity to gush over an attractive woman – in the National Post.
