The drive-by smear campaign by Toronto leftwing media, socialists and elitists against the Ford family is nothing short of scandalous. It’s like Wafergate on steroids. They despise Rob Ford and anyone related to him and will stop at nothing to attack them. And why?
Why can’t they wait until the next election and do things in the old-fashioned way: run a campaign against Rob Ford’s record?
The answer is they can’t. Rob Ford and his brother Doug have done a great job and could do even better if their detractors weren’t constantly carpet-bombing them with pseudo-scandals in an effort to get them to resign before the next municipal election.
So rather than let democracy work, they are engaging in a full court press to get rid of the Fords before the lowly voters of Toronto do the unthinkable: Re-elect them.
And that’s the real scandal.
It’s time for the great unwashed masses to rise up and let them know who’s boss. Vote now with canceled Star and Globe subscriptions. Try to avoid clicking on their web sites (and anything to do with Gawker of course.)
There are other newspapers out there and other types of media too including talk radio.
Please listen to Rob and Doug this afternoon on Newstalk1010 and call in with a message of support if you are able to get through.

** And maggots
In fairness to the Mayor, he apologized for calling the media maggots & since we’ve implied he’s a crackhead for 10 days let’s call it even

Eric has a must-read post: L’affaire Ford.
..The people howling for Ford’s head on a platter are physically and emotionally repulsed by him. They have the same reaction to his presence at City Hall that most people have when they find some loathsome grub under a rock – “eew, kill it!” They cannot accept that this fat slob was democratically elected by the citizens of Toronto, so he must be destroyed. They cannot wait until the next election in 2014 to oust him – he has to go NOW before David Miller’s Toronto becomes unhip, so an unprecedented campaign of harassment and vilification has been unleashed on him...
Great job Eric. You nailed it!
