Doug Ford Was Right To Skip The Toronto Pride Parade Because Of The Radical Left’s Anti-Police Extremism

Leaders need to stand up to the radical leftists who are getting more and more extreme.

While some on the far-left are trying to demonize Doug Ford for skipping the Toronto Pride parade, it is clear to most people that he made the right move.

As a ‘Live-and-let-live’ person, I think the government should stay out of people’s personal lives. I have attended pride parades before to show support for the LGBT community, and would do so again under the right circumstances.

However, in some cities – including Toronto – the pride parades are becoming increasingly taken over by radical leftists, who are turning the event from something that was truly inclusive (including inclusive of the police), into an extremist event.

Many years ago, the police conducted raids against LGBT people, and violence was often committed against gay people. Since then, the police have made amends, and shown support for the rights of all people. The police have offered support for pride parades, which you would think is exactly what everyone would want to see when it comes to inclusiveness.

However, that’s not enough for the radical leftists.

The leftists are now pushing the message of extreme black lives matter activists (who don’t speak for most black people or most people overall), and that includes extremist demands to ban the police from marching in the parade in uniform.

Obviously, that totally destroys the inclusiveness of the event, and that’s something that a true leader can’t stand for.

That’s why Doug Ford is 100% correct to skip the Toronto Pride parade so long as the police are excluded.

Police officers put their lives at risk every day, dealing with the worst and most troubling aspects of our society in order to keep us safe. To ban them from an event is a disgrace.

As Ford said“I support our police. And I support our LGBT community, and what they want, when I spoke to them … they want lower gas prices, they want responsible government, and when they call I’ll be at their door just as quick as I’m gonna be at anyone else’s door.”

While the left will attack Ford’s comments, he is demonstrating what a true leader should do. Instead of treating people as token members of minority groups, he’s focusing on the common interests all people have: Responsive representation, making life affordable, and a good economy.

And Ford is right to refuse to give in to the radical left agenda that seeks to politicize everything and tear our society apart.

Ford is a rare example of common sense leadership in Canada, and it’s something our country needs far more of.

And what was his excuse for missing all the other ones he could have attended when the police were there?

He didn’t have a high enough profile to be invited. While I am an LGBT supporter, I have never been to a pride parade and never will. I think it used to be a fun time for all but it has been taken over by extremists and does more damage than good to the community.

Everyone has the right to be part of something or not. Doug Ford is a man of principal and nobody has the right to judge this man for his decision. Nobody has the right to dictate or put conditions on someone because they don’t follow or believe in another’s person way of life.

Actually that is incorrect, Doug For is an elected official representing ALL people of Ontario and if he has an issue with someone’s sexual orientation he is not suited for the job.

Yes we do need much more of this. Funny how some Ford opponents are comparing him to Trump. His demeanor is nothing like Trump’s at all.

Anyway, good for Ontario for voting for common sense. Let’s hope for the same nationally next year when we vote out the Liberals.

People better wake up to WHOM is paying for all the RADICALS and that is George Soros! The Puppet Master has been given money by him also. USA are onto to Soros now, and if you FOLLOW the money and the SCAM NON PROFITS he created they are plentiful in every country! This is all TRUTH and FACT. I will be searching more here in Canada as see all of the charities listed that are SOROS funded. He is being called out all over the world and is also being sued by lots of companies. I have found some interesting… Read more »
