TDSB trustee Sam Sotiropoulos suggests the Pride parade is a haven for nudist pedophiles
When TDSB trustee Sam Sotiropoulos launched his ultimately unsuccessful bid to ban nudity at the Toronto Pride parade, his rationale was that all public nudity is against the law (which is debatable) and, more importantly, that all the exposed flesh raises “questions of age-appropriateness for TDSB students and their families.” We guessed that it was only a matter of time before he started suggesting that some parade participants are pedophiles. Sometimes, being absolutely right is just the worst.
“Can you tell me definitely that all those people who are going about nude are gay?” Sotiropoulos asked Newstalk 1010 host Jim Richards during an April 11 radio interview. “Can you definitely guarantee to me that there may not be a kiddy-diddler mixed up among them?”
When pressed by Richards, Sotiropoulos didn’t elaborate on his suggestion that some parade participants may be pedophiles. “There is a law, Jim,” he said, “and protecting [students] from watching the law being broken is a legitimate concern.”
Equating homosexuality with pedophilia is the 21st-century equivalent of suggesting that Passover matzoh is full of kiddie blood. It’s a lurid accusation, as irresistible to bigots as it is utterly false. Sotiropoulos stopped just short of making that dangerous connection, but how long can this guy possibly go on as a politician before he mires himself in a controversy so deep that no amount of I-am-not-a-homophobe robocalls (yes, he actually did that) can make it go away?

Just not sure why you have to drop blood libels into your story.
Your troll game is weak.
because it’s just as offensive and I’m Jewish.
I’m also Jewish as well. Bringing up the blood libel ghost during Passover as the point of reference is something I don’t dig. It is a libel that, hopefully, died in the early 1900s.
There are other parallels that could be used that would be more relevant than matzah blood libels. That’s all I’m saying. It’s not always fun (nor is it fun to be reminded that Jews are) to be a measuring stick when it comes to hate and bigotry.
“also Jewish as well” – redundant.
2/10, would not upvote.
hehe, interesting. Enjoy nudist lifestyle
Become a nudist! This will help you reduce your anxieties about being naked.
enjoy the clothes free lifestyle!
Because it’s an analogous prejudice?
There is nothing wrong with a nude human being, gay or straight. If we were intended to go nude, God would have had us born that way.
Ignorance is no excuse.
Someone needs to ban this ho’s turtleneck/jacket combination.
Yeah, sounds about right for him…Opinionated, intractable, bull-headed never wrong egotist… And you want this guy shaping policy for your KIDS!!??
And this week he tweeted this: “Until I see scientific proof that transgenderism exists and is not simply a mental illness, I reserve the right not to believe in it.” When asked by a CTV reporter to clarify his tweet he just kept dodging the question. Then, after the reporter tired of Sotiriopoulos’ refusal to answer, she asked him about his Pride tweet. That’s when we saw his “deer in headlights” look. “This was supposed to be an interview about my most recent tweet, not that one” he said, just before he walked off camera. What a jerk!
Turns out he was right as there was at least one pedo at the pride parade: Ben Levin, former Deputy Minister of Education in Ontario, an admitted child pornographer and a specialist in sexual abuse of children. What’s more, I’ll bet he wasn’t the only one. Someone should give Sam Sotiropoulos a medal for speaking the truth in an age of deceit. Good for him!
