Farber: As Ontario’s election approaches, we need leaders who will firmly reject racism

Election day in Ontario will soon be here. More than any other this particular election seems to have attracted the attention of the extreme right. Given the perceptible rise in the so-called “alt-right” movement it comes as no real surprise.

White’s “This Hour Has 88 minutes,” popular amongst the racist set, was taken down after he was exposed. However, in one of his final episodes where another uncovered Canadian neo-Nazi leader, “Zeiger” was a special guest, their support for Doug Ford was effusive:

“He’s really taken a page from the Trumpian book, even though he’s claiming when media puts his feet to the fire that he’s not a Trumpist, but he’s really following that playbook, and he’s saying the same sorts of things that invigorate the white working class. I think it’s only something to be excited about, even with reservations.”

Such “endorsements” need to be firmly and unequivocally rejected and indeed Ford did just that. Nonetheless, it leaves us wondering why such extremists are so taken with “Ford Nation.”  (more...)

Granic-Allen has a problem with ... Serbs? Could be that hot Croatian blood.

Whispers that Douggie thinks Eastern European ladies are hot? You dog! 😍
