Today’s Fordism Is …

From the Globe and Mail:

Mayor Rob Ford has joined ally Giorgio Mammoliti in painting council red.

Speaking on AM640 this morning, the mayor labelled five councillors at city hall as “two steps left of Joe Stalin.”

Maybe Ford doesn’t want to be seen as the dickish right-wing mayor of Toronto anymore but instead as that relative that your parent just tells you to ignore.

“Oh, that’s just Rob,” they say. “He’s so old and set in his ways. He really doesn’t know any better. He comes from another time.”

  1. Rob is Old?

    I’m goin neutral on this topic.
    Except that, nobody on Riderville council has the ‘nads to say anything negative, as they are all business partners..

    T.O. is still likely funnier(c) to live in than Reggieville.

    Good for him to at least say something that may make a person want to watch city council reality TV..

    They are the leftyist(c) of the left.

    funny! Rob’s never visited Regville, I guess. He’d be in Perferctland.

    According to the”Harper government” / aka: The Conservitive Party /aka the Reform partie / the alliance movement, people that give a shit for Canada’s pristine wilderness, and hate mega corp pipeline projects are forever ; to be known as “radicals”. Or sumpting like that.

    Exactly. Why does the liberal-left persist in pretending these buffoons are just passing fads to be laughed off and ignored?

    Mike Harris, Stephen Harper, George W. Bush, Newt Gingrich, etc., how’s that been working out for ya, liberal-left?

    For any North American politician to call any other NA politician either two steps left of Stalin or two steps right of Hitler is a f*cking intellectual disgrace, considering Stalin murdered 1000s of his own Communist colleagues and millions more Soviets, while Hitler murdered millions as well and started the war that killed 10s of millions.

    Just idiotic drivel. Idiot should be stripped of him Mayorship.
