BREAKING NEWS - Rob Ford to Cut Off the Internet due to Internet Smearing

TORONTO, September 24 - In addition to the War against the Elites embedded within the written press, Rob Ford today announced that he would no longer use the internet after the campaign team found Google to be littered with elites.

Rob Ford Dismisses Women's Mayoral Debate

Rob Ford has such a low opinion of women in politics and women in general that he cannot even be bothered to withdraw from the YWCA Toronto women's debate with notice and in person. This man is an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment.

Vive la Smitherman Flip Flop

George Smitherman was for raising taxes before he was for freezing taxes.
Smitherman’s tax pledge comes only days after he announced a $10 million youth job-creation plan to be supported by a hike in business property taxes, followed hours later by a statement that there was a miscommunication and the plan doesn’t include a tax hike.
It seems he's trying to position himself as a born-again Rob Ford-lite as his campaign sputters.

Oh, and his fiscal plan to support all this? Not until September 27th, folks. So, like Ford as well - announcing spending and tax cuts with no plan.

One Difference between Ford and Smitherman

When Smitherman gets angry, he doesn't discriminate.

Rob Ford in Quotes

In a recent interview with Examiner.com, former Etobicoke councillor Rob Ford fashioned himself a social liberal.

Here's his socially liberal opinions. I excluded the ones where he was drunk.

On different cultures:

  • Go to the Orient, go to Hong Kong. You want to see workaholics? Those Oriental people work like dogs... they sleep beside their machines. The Oriental people, they're slowly taking over... they're hard, hard workers.
  • Gino-boy [in reference to George Mammoliti].
On LGBT rights:

  • I don’t understand. No. 1, I don’t understand a transgender, I don’t understand, is it a guy dressed up like a girl or a girl dressed up like a guy? And we’re funding this for, I don’t know, what does it say here? We’re giving them $3,210?
  • If you’re not doing needles and you’re not gay, you won't get AIDS, probably.
On poverty:

  • People do not want government housing built in the city of Toronto. They want roads fixed, more police presence, but they don't want more government housing that will depreciate the value of their property.
  • This is an insult to my constituents to even think about having a homeless shelter in their ward. And you want me to have a public meeting to discuss this? Why don’t we have a public lynching?
On the sanctity of life:

  • I can't support bike lanes. Roads are built for buses, cars, and trucks. My heart bleeds when someone gets killed, but it's their own fault at the end of the day.
