Good for Rob Ford. Canada Day is a day for all Canadians to celebrate their nation as a 34-million strong collective, not a small minority of people celebrating their sexuality. (…)
The exaltation of homosexuality is second only to the reverence paid to unfettered abortion as a litmus test for political correctness amongst our cognitive and cultural elites. Rob Ford’s sin is that he does not believe in mixing politics with sexuality pride. Rob Ford is not a homophobe, but nor on the other hand does he think it is any particular honour to be homosexual. Many Canadians not schooled in the catechism of gender correctness agree with him. (…)
Pride has no more legal and political ambitions to fulfil. The revolution is over. Pride is no longer about “support” for gays. Now it’s all about having gay-themed fun. They don’t need politicians for that. Some Pride participants do everything but have actual sex in public, and if tourists want to pay good money to see that, so be it.
Pride doesn’t need public money, any more than strip shows do. Millions of tolerant, non-homophobic Canadians find nothing to celebrate in lewd self-promotion. Rob Ford is one of them, I assume. He would do everyone a favour if he never marched in another Pride parade again. I bet there are hundreds of other politicians in Canada who secretly wished they had the nerve to follow suit.
