Rob Ford Enjoys Big Support From Toronto Muslim Immigrants; People Mag’s New “Sexiest Man Alive”

By Debbie Schlussel

People Magazine just unveiled its new “Sexiest Man Alive” cover boy, and we have an exclusive on the cover, below. Okay, that’s not the real cover–the mag chose someone else (far left whack job Adam Levine)–but it would have been far more exciting had they chosen North America’s real “Sexiest Man Alive” (and Craziest Mayor Alive), and I asked Jedi Master of Photoshop Art, David Lunde, to produce the cover.

Rob Ford . . . Brought to You By Muslims

Oh, and by the way, don’t listen to those who are trying to paint Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as a “conservative” and the “White conservative” version of former Washington, DC Mayor Marion Barry. In fact, the Wall Street Journal reported that Ford’s biggest supporters–known as “Ford Nation“–are recent immigrants from Somalia and the Middle East and those who speak Punjabi and Urdu (a/k/a Pakistanis). Translation: Muslims. Yup, they have no prob with a Mayor who smokes crack, has food and alcohol problems, and patronizes prostitutes.

Explaining Mr. Ford’s support requires knowledge of how the diverse city of close to 2.8 million people was born.

In 1998 six cities merged into one, adding about 1.7 million people to Toronto’s previous population of nearly 700,000. The original city is now called downtown and the others are still referred to as suburbs, even though they are one municipality now. . . .Toronto’s core is growing at a faster clip than the former suburbs, and the downtown wards tend to be more affluent. . . .

The suburbs also are home to a big proportion of the city’s immigrants, in part because housing is cheaper. In Etobicoke North, Punjabi, Spanish, Somali, Italian and Urdu are among the languages spoken at home, according to the latest Canadian census data. A majority of Etobicoke North voters supported Mr. Ford for mayor.

Mr. Ford has been able to tap into those divides. After the crack-smoking admission, his job-performance approval rating was 45% in the suburb of Etobicoke, according the Ipsos Reid poll. In the old City of Toronto, it was 29%.

Despite Mr. Ford’s crack-use admission, some residents of his former ward still back him.

“Overall, he’s a good man,” Ramdehol Bissoon [DS: Hmmm . . . guess the religion], a middle-aged auto electrician, said on Saturday outside an Etobicoke strip mall. “He’s strong and he fights for the people…to ease taxes” on homeowners.

Nearby, in the parking lot of a local Wal-Mart, Carolina Rojer said she had her photo taken with Mr. Ford at one of his annual barbecues, which are open to all Toronto residents. “I was so proud.…I enlarged it and it is in my living room and I proudly show it to everyone,” she said. “I don’t care” what others think, she said.

Okay, this demands comment. Do you really need to ENLARGE a photo of Rob Ford? Just sayin’. . . .

Over his political career, Mr. Ford has returned “hundreds of thousands of calls” from residents and visited thousands in their homes, said Mark Towhey, the mayor’s former chief of staff. “He has a personal connection with thousands” and their view is “you don’t turn your back” on your own.

Before Mr. Ford, if you called a councilor “he never answered you,” said Etobicoke resident Ilija Birkic, another supporter.

Gor people coming from places like Mumbai, Hong Kong, Latin America and the Middle East, Mr. Ford is more representative of the opportunity and energy they sought by moving to the city in the first place.

“I think the Ford supporters are trying to shuck off the old Toronto attitude…of this kind of quiet, this orderly…some would say this repressed town,” Mr. Florida said. “He represents Toronto as a spectacle.”

And the Muslim immigrants seem to think this drug addicted fool is representing them just fine. This is the kind of candidate they elect when they reach critical mass.

Today, Toronto, tomorrow, the rest of North America.

We are starting to see such people elected here. I wonder Mr. Ford offered the Muslims to get elected?

    Ford boughy his crack from those Somali drug pushers in that first photo.

I realize this is off topic but I just need to comment on how I told you people after the Zimmerman verdict that we’re not done hearing about this cretin just yet, he is true dirt and it will come out now that he’s under public scrutiny we’ll hear about every time he jay walks. He murdered a young teenage boy in cold blood for no reason and now its open season on blacks, if a black person comes within a few feet of a white person they feel they have the right to gun them done to “STAND YOUR GROUND” so to speak. This country is being turned upside down racially even with a half white president and white people are armed and ready for War.

THE MANGOG on November 20, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    You are way off topic Mangog, so your comment will be ignored.

    Worry01 on November 20, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    I bet a douche like Mango had no comment when OJ Simpson was freed.

    Zimmerman may be whacked but Martin was a piece of scum, who had been kicked out of school several times and was looking for trouble, in his own words. He found it, and society is better off without him.

    Jonathan E. Grant on November 20, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Get the clutter out of your brain, Mangog. George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a sucker-punching brute who could have killed him. Zimmerman walked for one reason: The state prosecution, led by Angela Corey, didn’t have a case. Indeed, the “evidence” of guilt on Zimmerman’s part was nonexistent, never mind unable to meet the standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

He looks like Chris Farley. A guy that obese with his heart encased in a 3″ layer of fat won’t be able to tolerate too much more crack and he’ll soon enough be dead from overdose just like Farley.

Now, Marion Barry who kept fit with his plethora of hos could handle the crack life just fine.

DS_ROCKS! on November 20, 2013 at 5:04 pm

So this former Toronto Mayor is allegedly a right-wing conservative? If so, then he’s probably one of the few conservatives with drug problems, etc., and if this man is politically and socially a right winger, in the past Debbie, you’ve written x-amounts of articles of those on the political right being useful idiot dhimmi’s for Islam and Arabism, by placating to the muslim populace (both here in the US and globally in all nations). And I can tell that this dude supports illegal-immigration by wanting his country of Canada being followed with immigrants who there illegally, and at the sametime, none of us on this blog (including DS) aren’t excessive nationalists, but wants to see our government close down our southern borders with Mexico and crack-back on illegal-immigration.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

I happen to like DS’ pick more that “People”‘s since they have been picking unattractive and fey nancy-boys the last few years. Especially bimbo addict Adam Levine. Grow a spine and name a gay dude already. Nobody cares anyway.

No wonder why real lesbians like to look butch. It’s men they want to be like after all.

And I don’t conflate the 2 words “Canadian Conservative” too easily. With apologies to some ex-pats who are regulars here, no country bores me more than Canada. I’m not a fan in the least. One doesn’t need Canada when you got USA.

LOL, DSR. I keep thinking of Matt Foley (is that the proper name?) when I see Mayor Crack-Head. He lives in the van by the river and is a motivational speaker.

And as Worry wisely stated, I am ignoring the OT troll above who suffers from what many Black regulars here suffer from…race sensitivititis. Their brains also rot from lack of independent thinking and being used by Donk dupes.

Debbie while not condoning the mayor of toronto actions at least he isn’t a communist as are the majority of the toronto council.

his muslim affiliations are actually the worst of his escapades.

I don’t live in toronto but of there is no one else worth a vote and I would vote for him over the others.

it is sad but he is the best out there at this time.

remember your news is from the communist outlets here in Canada.

Any relation to Gerald R. Ford? 🙂

There is NO Santa Claus on November 20, 2013 at 11:24 pm

I became eventually intrigued by this mayor after being stunned. I’ve gotten to like him, he’s lively,in the main seems to have delivered decent services to his constituents. Ok the chap has has some fallabilities, penchants that have moments of excess, but not much stays hidden with him for long. The good part is that it would force him to reign himself in again rather than slither steadily down and out. His dicey behaviours are obvious, so dont share a car he drives, if he tries to grope just tell him to cut it out or you’ll get his wife to smack him for it and like wise his tongue. He’s not a real sexual harrasser, just out of line sometimes. His greatest danger will be to his own health. He is a refreshing change in a time dominated by appearance, fabricated images with fake pretend
politically correct products.He is a regular guy, politically smart, energetic and barely under control, so you see what you get.

    Kay, I bet you’re a single mum. 😉

    Let’s hear it for women! The better more wiser sex.

    2013 is loaded with vermin, that’s for sure.

I no longer live in Toronto, but I spent most of my life there. Ford has many failings. However, he’s the most fiscally responsible mayor Toronto has seen in decades. He was the same for many years, as a councilor. There have been few others, so concerned for the taxpayer.

Yes, he’s obese, and he has a foul mouth, but I’d gladly have a large group of politicians just like him. Keep in mind that, so far, he hasn’t even been charged with a crime, let alone convicted.

I’d gladly vote for him, were I still a Torontonian.

I really should stop reading your blog during mmy lunch hour Debbie. You made me laugh so hard now I have to clean up my keyboard and monitor. Like DS Rocks said I thought for a minute the dude was Chris Farley. The only reason this is getting any play here in the US is because the dopes in the MSM keep saying that Ford is a conservative. It’s also no surprise that this slob is soft on Muslims and all things Islamic. He kind of reminds me of newly reelected governor of New “Joisey”. Who I might add has a real live cover on what I consider another librag of a magazine Time. I think it was titled “The fat RINO in the room.” Now as to the stupid troll Mangag ,er gog. Listen clown Zimmerman will not be able to break wind in public without the beforementioned MSM reporting on it. To those morons and many dopey liberal Blacks he got away with murdering unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin (just two days ago CBS still used that line.) This nonwithstanding that “saint” Trayvon was a dunderheaded punk who loved trouble. It’s was unfortunate for him that he found more than he could handle that day. I agree with JEG that societyis better off without him.

James Delingpole: Why Rob Ford is better than most low-life politicians

…it’s in this context that I find myself weirdly unbothered by the Rob Ford affair. Sure, crack-smoking drunken mayor isn’t ideal. But I’m honestly much more interested in what a politician gets up to in his public life than in his messy private life.

To put it another way, who would you rather have governing the minutiae of your existence?

a) A crack-smoking hell raiser who kept taxes down, made public services more efficient and otherwise kept his grubby fingers out of your business?

b) A squeaky clean do-gooder who, confident in his own moral probity, felt justified in trying to micromanage every last detail of your affairs with more taxes, regulations and codes.

For me, it’s a no brainer..

What the followers of this site may not be aware of is the track record of Ford. For the record I’m a 69 year old born and bred Torontonian who retired to a lake in cottage country 15 years ago, which is the goal of most original Torontonians. For decades, Toronto has been continually governed by leftist, flavour of the month, politically correct, trendoid twits who predictably put the city into an over taxed economic mess. Ford was the first Conservative elected as mayor for decades and to date, which is in the middle of his second term, has so far dramatically slashed the city budget, privatized things like garbage collection and so far has saved the city over half a billion dollars, turning Toronto into an economic power house and he did this while smoking crack although I doubt that he is a heavy user. For decades he has also given a lot of his time to charity such as coaching kids in sports. He was doing this long before he was in politics. Throughout all this, we had a Provincial Premier, the lying, con artist scumbag Dalton McGuinty,the equivilant of a State governor, who was elected on a platform of no tax increases and upon election put them through the roof. He finally had to “retire” when it was discovered he spent half a BILLION dollars cancelling gas fired power plants to get three tree-hugger ridings elected. Ford also ran against and defeated a socialist cocaine addict which our liberal mainstream media played down. In the next Toronto mayorlty election, Ford or his replacement will likely run against radical leftist Olivia Chow who you can bet the farm will return Toronto to it’s leftist road to ruin. Olivia Chow was the wife of Jack Layton who was a Toronto counselour who later became the leader of the federal New Democratic Party. Our lamestream media predictably failed to adequatly report Jack been found in a massage parlour when being busted by Toronto’s best. The lamestream media also did a lousy job reporting Olivia and Jack living in government subsidized housing. Their lame excuse was that they felt the peasants would benefit by living in such close proximity to their superiors. Makes you want to puke. Just goes to show that a crack smoker Conservative can out perform socialists.
