Those whom live in glass houses....

Well, it appears that the hate just keeps on coming. One of our Liberal members of provincial parliament had an interesting tweet following the municipal election here in Toronto.

Blazing Catfur has the screen caps of the tweets.

As well there's this story in the National Post that covers the tweets, and the "apology" from Minister Glen Murray.

Minister apologizes for 'bigotry' tweet

HT: to Blazing Catfur for the screen caps of the twitter posts done by Glen Murray

An Ontario Liberal Cabinet minister is facing calls for his resignation after he took aim at Toronto's mayor-elect Rob Ford, Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, using the social networking site Twitter to accuse them of bigotry.

In an apparent response to an anti-gay ad targeting mayoral candidate George Smitherman broadcast on Tamil radio last weekend, Glenn Murray, Ontario's Research and Innovation Minister and former mayor of Winnipeg, tweeted: "If u vote Ford u r voting for bigotry."

He then goes on to criticize the provincial Opposition leader and the Prime Minister: "Ford, Hudak and Harper use fear tactics against Tamils and gay men. I am proud of the Tamil and gay Canadians I represent."

The openly gay Mr. Murray also retweeted a message from another Twitter account that said: "ford, hudak and harper -- the trifecta of republican-style, right wing ignorance and bigotry."

Mr. Ford, who spent his first day as mayor-elect coaching football at Don Bosco Secondary School, responded: "Those pathetic comments aren't worth a response." [SNIP]

Interesting how he calls Ford and all conservatives bigoted and ignorant right? Well here's his apology:
By yesterday afternoon, Mr. Murray, in Quebec City for a conference, had issued a statement apologizing for his comments.

"I do not believe Rob Ford or Stephen Harper or Tim Hudak are bigots. I regret tweeting a message that said otherwise, and am sorry I did that," he wrote, before quickly adding, "I do challenge Tim Hudak to condemn strongly the hateful campaigning deployed in Toronto and to root out any of those working in his ranks who would try to exploit hatred with smear tactics."

Interesting that he states that the conservatives should stop all the hatred and smear tactics. Lets look at some interesting articles, posts and comments from the liberal side of the equation.....

Slandering Ford with Photoshop.

Ford courts the xenophobic vote (from Toronto's far left Now Magazine)
Globe’s Marche uses “fat” 17 times in Rob Ford column.
This blog as the full article that was pulled by the Globe and Mail.

You can also search the Toronto Star archive for Rob Ford in the opinion section to see what their people think.

Now let me see what I can pull up for George Smitherman.

Hmmmm, interesting. I hereby declare MPP Glen Murray to be talking out his backside. It's obvious that there were more slanders from the left against the right. This is something you see very often in politics lately. For some reason the left wingers always accuse the right wingers of tactics that they are using. Isn't this called "projection"?

There's many more cases I could bring up after a little research about this subject, not just the mayoral race slanders, until the time really calls for it I will be doing research and saving links to open up the guns on the lying left.

  1. "You're a bigot" the mating call of the liberal losers.
