City won’t pull Pride funding despite exclusion of T.O. cops from parade

Let me just start by saying that Councillor John Campbell deserves our utmost respect.

With his motion to withhold the $260,000 grant to Pride until they reaffirm their core value of “inclusivity” and allow the police to march on June 25, he showed councillors and public servants that at least some members of Toronto’s dysfunctional council want to do what’s right.

    The radical Left gets its way again. Ratepayers in TO need to step up, if they even care.

    • Mark Matis

      Just remember that it is Toronto’s “finest” who enable the swill that are destroying the city and the country. They deserve FAR more than just an exclusion from the parade.

      • Oracle9

        Well yes, they are pretty much ideologically corrupted, but we do need policing.

        • Mark Matis

          Why not let the Mafia do it then? Their enforcers also swear an oath, but if they spit on that oath, they are gone. Unlike the Thugs with Guns who merely exist to protect their Masters, protect their Brothers in Blue, and generate revenue.

          • FactsWillOut

            Come now, they also exist to protect the revenue stream of their masters by busting and shutting down anyone who might compete with them. The Mafia, at least, will let you compete and take a bit of protection money.
            In fact, the biggest difference between the mafia and the state is that the mafia at least manages to balance their books and show a profit.

            Guess it’s getting hard to find good employees. I am currently listening to Explaining Postmodernism, and while going through it I can understand why reality these days is ultimately malleable. How that works for humans trying to make sense of living in the world, well, it’s easy to see why we are so confused as a society.

            Mafia provides goods and services at a lower price than the gubermint
            supply & demand

          • FactsWillOut

            That’s why the gubmint comes down so hard on “organized crime”.
            They can’t compete.

          • mauser 98

            $$$$$$$$$$$TAX$$$$$$$$$

          • Mark Matis

            And if you paid your Mafia “insurance” tax, they actually, like, PROTECTED you. If anybody fokked with you, they soon regretted it. These days with Western “Law Enforcement”? Nacho much.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Toronto Police NOT doing what police should be doing was among the reasons we sold up and got the hell out of Toronto. We got tired of having police ADVOCATE on behalf of residents who were in the process of destroying the neighbourhood. Political agenda enforcement gets in the way of living a peaceful life in Toronto. You are always being hounded over one thing or another……….

      “no representation, no taxation”

      • FactsWillOut

        Anarchist!
        The make folk with no kids pay a school tax, so that whole idea is dead and buried, I’m afraid.

    • Clausewitz

      Meanwhile another week goes by in Toronto and more Blacks are gunned down by other Blacks, and still not a peep out of BLM.

  • tom_billesley

    Looks like a prime Ramadan terrorism target, but police are not welcome?

    • El Martyachi

      London’s starts on the 24th.

  • ontario john

    And don’t forget the black community is now pushing for the police to be banned from schools there.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Why are you even funding a pride parade?

    • Exile1981

      They are funding for 2 reasons:

      1) To buy votes from a small vical but deviant minority.

      2) As a way to say f you to christians.

      • Alain

        I recall that there was a ruling that cities had to fund it. I forget the city whose mayor said no and the city was taken to the OHRC.

    • LauraS

      I’m a mean old grinch with Scottish ancestry–municipalities shouldn’t be funding ANY parades or arts events at all. If these parades and events draw as much support as organizers claim, it would be easy to pay for it via private donations and corporate patrons.

    • Because white vans matter.

  • LauraS

    Wouldn’t it be lovely if the Toronto police held a press conference encouraging people –particularly those who may be coming from out of town–to stay away from Pride this year as they do not have the numbers or support to ensure the safety of parade goers in this era of Islamist terrorism?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Love Love LOVE your suggestion. Brilliant! Unfortunately, it won’t happen.

      • LauraS

        I know. It would take a great deal of courage.

        A girl can dream though…

        🙂

        • Justin St.Denis

          In your case, those dreams are spectacular technicolor!

        • FactsWillOut

          If you’re gonna dream, dream big:
          Private property rights, gun rights, economic freedoms, etc.

          • Clink9

            That’s an LSD enhanced dream in Canada.

          • FactsWillOut

            Pretty much.
            Pretty much anywhere on the planet, for that matter.

  • Clink9

    I wonder how much taxpayer money goes into the Santa Claus Parade.

  • FactsWillOut

    I don’t think the cops should be part of the parade, either.
    They should be arresting those pervs who walk around naked, instead, but that won’t happen, because our cops are tops, and bottoms.
    The rest of us are just buggery victims.

    • ontario john

      But little Justin wears such pretty beads at the parade. How can you miss out on that. And you might see Michael Coren naked at the parade!

      • Justin St.Denis

        OMG! Are you giving us reasons to pull for a terrorist attack?

      I’m heartbroken that Ben Levin won’t be there.

      ***sniff***

      • Justin St.Denis

        I’msure Ben Levin feels the same way.

        • FactsWillOut

          No doubt. There are more kids at the parade than in prison.
          On a side note, folk bringing kids to that parade are child abusers, to boot; right up Levin’s alley, as it were.

  • Fine.

    When the ubiquitous white van plows through people, they have only themselves to blame.

    Then there will be even fewer beardy-weirdies to pay for.

    • FactsWillOut

      You do understand that the police will still be policing and protecting the shit-show? They just won’t have their own gay float.

      • No, they won’t.

        The panties-wetting Black Lives Matter doesn’t want them there.

        I say do an enormous “I Told You So” cakewalk when that event goes pear-shaped, which it will.

  • ontario john

    And of course we are witnessing the downtown leftists going totally insane, with the news that other city employees have been told not to wear uniforms in case the poor troubled people with black lives matter, think they are police. Yes, no TTC or GO Transit uniforms you racist bastards.

    • FactsWillOut

      That anyone still thinks the parade is about homosexuals is astounding.
      It is, and always has been a victory parade for the Frankfurt School cultural Marxists.

  • Alain

    Where are the jihadists when they are most needed?

    • FactsWillOut

      It seems that in the west, little girls (aka infidel sluts) are a higher priority than the gay folk are.

      • Brian Jones

        Well, they’re looking to kill their own virgin sex slaves for their imagined paradise, probably.

        Not gonna find too many virgins at the pride parades.

  • Observer

    Last year BLM was demanding that they be paid to provide security for the Pride parade.

    It is just a shakedown of taxpayers.
