Why are they angrier at Doug Ford than they are at Faisal Hussain?
In the wake of Doug Ford’s great decision to slash Toronto City Council down to size from 47 to 25 councillors, the unhinged leftists have gotten even worse.
Andrea Horwath called Ford a “dictator.”
Naheed Nenshi used similar messaging, calling Ford a “tin pot dictator.”
Far-left mayoral candidate Jennifer Keesmaat says wants Toronto to secede from Ontario.
And Liberal MP Adam Vaughan seemed to go the most insane, calling Ford’s move “vindictive and destructive” and going on a tweet storm about how it needs to be fought – even though Ford has the total authority to do it.
Wow. You would think something serious actually happened, rather than some elitist politicians getting canned.
Of course, being unhinged is nothing new for the left, who regularly go crazy whenever a true leader redirects money from the elites back to the people.
But still, this latest eruption of insanity raises a disturbing question:
Why are the leftists angrier at Doug Ford than they are at Faisal Hussain?
The language and viciousness they’re using to attack Ford is far beyond anything they said about Hussain. It’s absurd that they’ve expressed more outrage over some politicians losing their jobs than they have about innocent people losing their lives.
As I said on Twitter, “The Trudeau government is calling Doug Ford’s awesome cuts to Toronto City Council “vindictive and destructive.” That’s far tougher than the language they used following the Toronto mass shooting. Think about what that means.”
Unfortunately, this is a clear sign that the left is becoming increasingly disconnected with reality, which makes them far more dangerous. If they are willing to demonize their political opponents to such a massive extent that their anger surpasses what they expressed towards a possible terrorist who killed innocent people, then who knows what else they might do as their unhinged rage increases.
Hopefully they’ll come to their senses, regain a sense of perspective, and rejoin reality. But so far, that doesn’t seem likely anytime soon.
