Ontario is Ford Nation

{pause indefinite hiatus / un-shun}

Yeah.

Ford and his Tories won all of rural southern Ontario (from the southwest to the east) and much of suburbia; that was enough for an overwhelming majority.

The NDP won in both their traditional strongholds and other urban areas that usually would go Liberal, so they will form the Opposition.

The Grits were utterly crushed, and will lose party status, but they’ll probably bounce back and the NDP will lose support.

It’ll be interesting.

Still annoyed at Ford for kicking out so-con activist and leadership rival Tanya Granic Allen, without whose support he wouldn’t have won the leadership in the first place, and thus signalling how unimportant social issues will be for him, despite actively courting Christians’ and religious minorities’ vote. I didn’t expect Ford to be anything but a populist free-marketer, but might have been nice to have been thrown a bone or two.

Sorry that the Green leader won a seat but the farther-right so-con Trillium Party lost its only seat.

Still, after 15 years of misrule by Grits, finally a Tory regime in Ontario again.

I’ll take Mike Harris Part II, with a touch of Trump populism.

Happy days are here again.

For now, at least.

And may this be the beginning of the end for Le Trou D’Eau, too…

“New Germans? We’ll make them ourselves!”

 

Patrick Brown running for his old job as Ontario Tory leader

Oh, this is perfect.

In a bizarre twist to a saga that has plunged Ontario’s official opposition Conservatives into chaos, Brown on Friday filed the paperwork to join the leadership race. His rivals blasted him.

Look, I never liked Patrick Brown, with his flip-flopping on the sex-ed issue – first rightly opposing Premier Wynne’s changes to the curriculum, then supporting them; his then further back-stabbing of the so-cons who elected him by marching in a gay pride parade, and his endless pandering to ethnic minorities, culminating in a recent long trip to India in December, which he tweeted endlessly about – but the false accusations against him which were way too convenient in their timing, with his Tories having finally risen enough in popularity (not because he was any good, but because Wynne is so awful) to threaten Wynne, have now even been partially shown to be false.

Now, Brown won’t stand a chance of winning this time, much less leading the Tories to victory, but why shouldn’t he throw a spanner in the works of those who seek to profit from the smear campaign that removed him from the Tory leadership? (Look, I like Doug Ford, and hope he wins, but one can’t deny the opportunism…)

Yeah, it won’t help the Tories any, who have consistently chosen incompetent leaders over the last 20 years which has kept the Liberals in power that whole time.

Oh well. Fun to watch not only the lashing out of the other candidates, but the whining in the media.

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

 

Smart Israelis; a good first step

Cash or custody: Israel kicks off deportation of African migrants

TEL AVIV (Reuters) – Israel has started handing out notices to 20,000 male African migrants giving them two months to leave the country or risk being thrown in jail.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is offering the migrants, most of whom are from Sudan and Eritrea, $3,500 and a plane ticket to what it says is a safe destination in another country in sub-Saharan Africa.

[…]

The right-wing government is under pressure from its nationalist voter base to expel the migrants

[…]

The government says the migrants are “infiltrators” looking for work rather than asylum

[…]

The first eviction notices were handed out on Sunday and job advertisements for immigration inspectors to implement the deportation plan have been posted on government websites.

[…]

The deportation notices do not name the country migrants will be flown to but Netanyahu has said it will be a safe destination. Rights groups have named Uganda and Rwanda as possible host countries.

In a poor neighbourhood in the south of Tel Aviv that has attracted thousands of African migrants, shops are dotted with signs in Tigrinya and other African languages while abandoned warehouses have been converted into churches.

“I came to Israel to save my life,” said Eritrean Afoworki Kidane, sitting on a street bench.

He said he would rather go to jail than take the cash and plane ticket on offer to leave the country that has been his home for nine years.

That is the one weakness in the plan; jail in a First World country is superior to freedom in a shithole…

Still, a good start…

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said Israel’s first obligation was to its own citizens, rather than the migrants.

“They are not numbers, they are people, they are human and I am full of compassion and mercy,” Deri told Army Radio. “But the small state of Israel cannot contain such a vast number of illegal infiltrators.”

Hear, hear!

 

Arise again, Ford Nation, and rescue Ontario!

With Doug Ford throwing his hat in the ring, as the Ontario Tory leadership is in complete meltdown mode, there is an opportunity to clean house, and finally take back the province from Wynne and the Grits.

Go, Dougie! Win one for Rob (R.I.P.)! 🙂

Arise again, Ford Nation, and this time not just for Toronto, but the province! 🙂
