Justin Trudeau is not Castro's son

23 posts in this topic

The suicide note left by Fidel Castro’s eldest son has rocked the Cuban nation this week, with the most astonishing revelation being the claim that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was his half-brother and the son of the late Fidel Castro.

Well I've said this before: Margaret Trudeau was a promiscuous woman who cheated on Pierre Elliott Trudeau left, right and centre.  Her lovers included Ted Kennedy, Mick Jagger and according to some accounts El Presidente himself so I wouldn't be surprised if it were true.  But why is Justin upset at this?  If you're a virtue signalling leftist wouldn't you rather have a latino alpha type revolutionary rebel as your father as opposed to some boring establishment cuck?  Fidel, Che, Mao and Joe Stalin is as good as it gets...

An old rumour beloved by Canada's less-educated conservative kool-aid drinkers.

They're both on the dart board, terrible in different ways.

Sniffing around for a new visa-free Ibiza or Canaries, I imagine. And they even speak that S Pan Yole lingo. An old red phone booth advertising streaky bacon, and you'd almost think you're on the Costa del Sol. :P

You have to admit that the TFSA was a great idea.  It's too bad for you guys living in Germany that there's nothing similar to that or the RRSP there.  Anyways, who would you vote for in the Federal Election?

I don't like anyone right now. Scheer is a nutjob, Trudeau I've never liked (name rather than competence), and the NDP just nope. I'll probably vote Green just to give my campaign financing donation, although I don't agree with everything they're for either. Growing up my 'home' riding was a pretty safe Liberal seat in Toronto, though it's shifted to a reliably ethnic vote riding now, either Con or Lib (provincially and federally it is one or the other)...

 

I would've supported the Ontario conservatives last election if they had picked a reasonable moderate like Michael Chong, but instead we've got Dumb Ford of the Dumb and Dumber duo. Wynne was out of touch, at best, and though I wasn't a big fan at least she was intelligent and motivated (more or less) by public service. Ford is a goon and a genuine low IQ idiot, motivated by revenge and delusions.

Low IQ?  You're beginning to sound like Trump. ;)  Doug Ford was a result of 15 years of failures by McGuinty and Wynne which turned Ontario into a "have not" province.  In this case I would have picked Ford any day.  Wynne may be "intelligent" on paper but if everything she touched turned into crap then she's of little use.

 

I guess you voted for Smitherman in the 2010 Mayoral Election?  The urbane intelligentsia liked him but I just couldn't get past his poor performance as Ontario Health Minister (i.e. eHealth failure).

Ford is a demonstrable nitwit, a dim bulb, a blunt knife, shortsighted, uninspired, petty and an egomaniac. He’s not “fixing“ Ontario or anything the Libs did. Quite the opposite! He’s bad for Ontario, a waste of time. But yes, Liberal hubris is also partly to blame here. Ford’s a crap politician who should’ve stuck to selling weed and making labels.

Nope, I was already in Germany. I was never a Smitherman fan, but between him and Rob Ford, sure whatever.

LOL you really hate the guy.  I would have voted for him but then again who wouldn't after McGuinty and Wynne?  I really couldn't care less about how eloquent he comes across.  Mayor David Miller was very articulate in 2003 and it looked like he was going to be a great mayor but he didn't deliver.  We'll see how Ford turns out; the media hate him but then again it's all the more reason to like him.

 

As for his brother Rob, you can say what you wanted but he was an excellent City Councillor and I speak from experience.  Whenever I called his office I would get a response within 24 hours and the issue would be resolved shortly.  However it's obvious why Toronto snobs hated him.  He was a pragmatic conservative who was from Rexdale and was very popular with brown and black people so they couldn't play the racist game with him.  Sure he wasn't the most sophisticated person out there and he did have a temper along with an alcohol problem but then again I care more about his deliverance than image.

Meh, Doug is just clearly a fool, a no-class petty goon. I don't see any vision or strategy for ONTARIO's good, nor really any intelligence. He's whacking at whatever moles pop up

 

Rob Ford an excellent councillor?? Surely this is bait. You don't have to be a "Toronto snob" to dislike him. I don't even think he (or his brother) have much conservative cred. It's more cheap demagoguery. RoFo was a train wreck smacked into a dumpster fire stuffed into a literal crack pipe. (BTW, I know the reporter who broke that crack smoking story, we went to school together though she was in younger year than me). He was openly racist. I won't gloat over someone's death, but I'm almost glad RoFo died simply to spare his family even more prolonged embarrassment. How can even a conservative idolize such a shamefully selfish bitter man, a horrible husband and father. Srsly. "Wasn't the most sophisticated" is an understatement if I've ever heard one. Well, he did have emotion, I'll grant him that. Unfortunately, it was often misdirected and unfocussed. He was OK as a small-scale community "fixer", but as a mayor a failure. On his political "deliverance" merits, there isn't much to say, especially a few years after his time in office. He has no great policy legacy.

 

It does go to show (in case there were any doubts) that being born into money and privilege like the Ford's were is no special recipe for enlightenment and intelligence.

 

You can hitch your wagons to better horses dude.

Dude have you lived in Rexdale?  If you ever had a problem with regards to city services, garbage collection, parking or anything under municipal jurisdiction, he would resolve the issue promptly.  That is the job of a City Councillor.

Interesting when you consider most of his homies and constituents were black or brown.  I've only heard skinny vegan hipsters with high pitched voices make that claim.  You should have said homophobic because he refused to attend any Pride Parades.

You seem to have mistaken me for some bible thumping evangelical Republican who keeps tabs on who sleeps with whom.  I don't really care what kind of husband he is if the other guy had a horrible track record as provincial health minister.  The fact is that Rexdale residents were very happy with his performance regardless of how his personal life may have been or what came out of his mouth.

Hah, this old chestnut. As if that somehow refutes RoFo's plain-as-day, caught-recorded casual racism. You don't have to be wearing a white hood and burning crosses to be a racist. Ford was a fine example of your garden-variety Toronto WASP with racial attitudes timelocked from the 1960s.

At the time, yep. And I can tell you that in-person, she was an arrogant, hypocritical, unpleasant woman to be around. But a ballsy reporter, so I grant her that.

You really think so? If so, name specific policies and instances of RoFo's legacy.

That's not what I imagined, either. And I don't think you have to be that much of a slack-jawed grass-chewing caricature bumpkin to miss noticing how bad Ford was also as a husband and father, let alone mayor.

The same old dodges. "Yea, well so what if he was a low IQ alcoholic crackhead casual racists who hated gays... He helped get that parking meter repaired in Rexdale so he's A-OK". Srsly?

 

It's amazing the twists of logic people will go to defend plainly contemptible people. RoFo wasn't the devil, but he sure was dumb, and in way over his head. A piss poor representative for Toronto or Canada.

That's entirely the problem. The Ford's should have stayed as wannabe-Dons of Rexdale. They were and are unfit for anything requiring more responsibility or intelligence. Douggie's numbers are swirling in the toilet now, he's been openly booed and had to backtrack on policy.

Who was he racist against?  If that's the case then why was he so popular among non-whites and white immigrants?  In any case you may see casual racism in him but I see institutionalized racism in some of his political opposites which you should agree is far worse.

I'm all ears.  The great majority of criticism I've heard about him was from white people with names like Smith, Jones, Johnson.  It would be interesting to find out how many of those were descendants of slave owners.

Nobody seems to criticize David Miller's skipping of Caribana.  ;)

For one privatizing garbage collection West of Yonge.  Were you in Toronto during the municipal strike known as the garbage strike in 2009?  I was lucky to be out of town for three weeks and yet the strike was still going on when I came back.  And then that jackass of a mayor, David Miller, criticizes Torontonians for trying to find alternative ways of disposing their garbage.  This didn't happen during Rob Ford even though city council stripped him of most of his powers in 2013.

 

Have you been to Toronto with John Tory as mayor?  Have you seen the clog up on Eglinton Ave?  It took me over an hour to drive from Martin Grove and Eglinton to Yorkville on a Friday night past 9 PM.  Never happened before.  What about the Gardiner?  Also I've never seen Queen St so congested past midnight.  And those bike lanes on Bloor were a disaster for traffic.  Btw I'm comparing 2014 vs. 2017.  Yes Tory may be a polite little eunuch who does what's expected of him but traffic has gotten a lot worse under him.  Once again didn't happen under Ford.

Once again his homies were black and brown so who was he racist against?  Second the job of a mayor is not to be as pious as Mother Teresa but it's to ensure that municipal issues are resolved competently.  These include garbage collection, relief of traffic congestion, accessibility of municipal services etc.  And yes I would rather take a "low ID alcoholic crackhead" who doesn't attend Pride Parades to a polite but incompetent dud.  You're beginning to sound a bit like those bible thumping ladies who were pissed off at Bill Clinton for having extramarital sex.  :)

A loud minority which often degenerates into a mob will always attempt to promote its agenda through intimidation and coercion but we will see what happens come next election.

Ballsy such as doing exactly what is expected of her from upper management?  After all the Toronto Star was extremely anti Ford.  Ballsy like those NY Times reporters who had information about Weinstein's sex misadventures well before 2017 but decided not to run with the story?  But as long as they eat tofu and talk about feminism they're good right?

 

In any case during 2008 - 2011 my office had several hard copies of the National Post, Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star so for those 3 years I would read either the NP or Globe for about an hour daily.  Seldom were the days when I had to read the Toronto Star but they weren't fun.  I found not just their editorials but also their articles at least a league below the other 2 newspapers.  The articles were written poorly, some facts were omitted etc.  The Star used to have the best sports section 20 years ago and who can forget the Starweek?  But the Starweek is now outdated and that sports section has gotten worse...
