Doug Ford tries to appease Jewish people, offends them anyway
At a mayoral debate hosted by two Jewish organizations on Sunday, lesser-known candidate Ari Goldkind, who is Jewish, raised a pertinent issue: mayor Rob Ford’s on-the-record use of an ethnic slur that is offensive to Jews. Doug Ford’s response to the jab was completely—almost beautifully—oblivious to 500 years’ worth of Jewish stereotypes. “You know something,” he said, according to the Star, “my doctor, my Jewish doctor, my Jewish dentist, my Jewish lawyer, my Jewish”—at this point, he was cut off by booing and laughter. He finished with a nod to his family’s “utmost respect” for the Jewish community. Now, strangely, a day after the fact, Ford has begun telling reporters that his wife Karla is Jewish.

And now suddenly he remembers that his wife is Jewish???
And we all know how Jewish women love to shop!
This is the same clown who brags about how much support the Fords have “in the ethnic community”. Why RoFo decided to attend that debate is beyond comprehension. DoFo is totally toast.
His wife wasn’t Jewish when she went to school with a friend of mine, so she must have secretly converted… LOL! Soon, he’ll be trudging out the daughters’ boyfriends who will be black or some other visible minority! Just to prove he’s not a racist!
Watch for Dougie sporting a yarmulke at some point over the next 3 weeks…
Don’t look now haters…but the latest Forum poll is a statistical tie. Ha ha ha! And his remarks didn’t offend me…I’m kvelling.
I live in Roncesvalles and while I was walking around the other day I actually saw a large FORD FOR MAYOR sign in someone’s front yard. Is there no quarter in Toronto where we’re safe from these lunatics??
She is as Jewish as this!
Open your mouth Doug…..time to change feet ?
If you say it…..you own it,……stop pulling John Tory into ever mess you get yourself in…this makes you look like a total fool……almost like, he told me to do it…so it’s his fault not mine?
Once again you said it……you own it ?
Got it now Doug.
Grow up ?
