Rob Ford, Canada’s Trump and a self-avowed ‘racist,’ was beloved by immigrants

Rob Ford 2

“Nobody sticks up for people like I do, every f—king kike, n—ger, f—king wop, dago, whatever the race,” Ford was recorded saying to someone in a phone call. “Nobody does. I’m the most racist guy around. I’m the mayor of Toronto.”

    That’s our Rob!

      He was my favorite politician in Canada and in the West. I and family are mourning for him. He had an African soul! Was an African brother!

      • The Butterfly

        He had the heart of a lion.

    We lost a great guy yesterday. Condolences to the Ford family. Rob will be fondly remembered and sadly missed. Very sorry for your (our) loss.

    My most striking memory of Rob was the night I dropped into his campaign HQ back in 2010. It was very crowded and a happy buzz permeated the room. After weeks of hearing what a bigoted racist he was, I was amazed to find an extremely diverse crowd encompassing all ages and hues.

    The whole atmosphere was infectious. As I waited for my friend who was there to attend an e-day training seminar, I asked how I could help. Someone shoved a pile of papers my way and told me what to do with them. I gladly pitched in and was sorry to leave when the training seminar was over.

    how many reporters went to Premier Strapons cottage ,hid in the woods and took pictures

    • The Butterfly

      Gawker did, to try and film a sex tape, but their reporter came back blind and muttering gibberish.

        has a brave noble soul yet been born that could peer into such a dark universe and live to tell?

      I maintain that the media stress precipitated his cancer.

      • mauser 98

        yes … totaly complicit … around the clock harassment ..non stop .. it got to him

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Personal experience tells me this is true.
          My grandmother, a war bride, died of cancer at Elvis Presley’s age because her life was so bleak in Canada.

      Leftists are so ugly and hateful on the inside.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The union leaders feared him.

  • John

    Ford was an absolutely fascinating guy. He was liked by many who you’d never expect would like him.

    • Waffle

      I was surprised to realize what a shy person he was.

  • SDMatt

    CTV in its obit yesterday tut tuttingly reported that Ford refused to apologize for saying the Chinese “work like dogs.”

    When did the world become so effeminate and chickensh!te?

    • There was no need to apologize.

      • Bataviawillem

        Why would anybody apologize for a compliment.

  • We attended an event at his home. It was the most multicultural event I have been at in Toronto.

    Perversely the “anti-Ford” rally i covered was like a Klan meeting it was so white ( and small).

  • Jabberwokk

    And that was his charm. He was as flawed as they come….just like everyone else. A beer drinking, sport loving, out of shape, bald white guy……and he could run Toronto under budget without raising taxes. A spit in the eye for the Laurentian elite “educated” types becuase he proved you don’t have to be one of them to do the job Canadians need.

  • Gary

    Don’t expect any slurs from the Liberal Furious George because he drove his gay hubby to suicide and is in NO position to mock Ford, nor will you hear from Michael Bryant the booze head MPP under McLiar and close to Ben Levin’s buddy Wynne.

    The leftist parasites at City hall are glad he’s dead but don’t have the guts to admit it which is the norm for these weasels and leftists .
    I’ll take a drug user Mayor that saves us money over an Elitist white person from Harvard like a David Miller that cost taxpayers about $35,000,000.00 to NOT build a $20,000,000.00 Bridge to the island airport .
    Don’t forget that Chow was part of the Bridge scam during her election to claims that it wouldn’t cost a toonie to cancel the deal……NO Ms.Parasite, it costs 17,500,000 toonie’s .

    “Canada’s Trump and a self-avowed ‘racist,’”

    You see what they did there, right?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Yeah, they complimented two guys even though they didn’t mean to.
