Even if you don’t like hockey or sports, you will like this video of conservative Don Cherry telling off the “Pinko” Commies on the Toronto City Council. It’s driving all the leftists in Canada mad, and I love it. I’ve written about my love for the original Dapper Don before.
Don Cherry Gives New Toronto Mayor Rob Ford the Chains of Office
The well-known Canadian TV hockey commentator was invited to the inaugural meeting of the City Council of the People’s Republic of Toronto, as a guest of his friend, new Toronto Mayor Rob Ford (who was sworn in at the meeting). And, in honor of the pinkos who hate him, well . . . he’s now the only real man I like in pink. His comments were in the course of a speech to the Council. In addition to telling off the “left-wing kooks,” he attacked “all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles.” He talked about how the left-wing media constantly attacks him for honoring the troops and for going to church.
For those of us who do like hockey and/or who live near the U.S./Canada border and can get CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada,” Don Cherry is like an old, beloved friend or uncle, also known as “Grapes.” His “Coach’s Corner” segment has remained popular for years. The guy loves America and stuck up for the U.S. and our troops when American hockey teams got booed in Quebec. He is constantly under attack from Canadians for defending and praising America. And for being an outspoken, unabashed conservative. You gotta love that.
Cherry is known for his flamboyant suits. But he’s not just loud clothes. He has the hockey chops to back it up and doesn’t gush over spoiled brats on the ice.
Love ya, Grapes. You keep tellin’ ‘em in Canuckistan.
