During the months leading up to the election, I had been lurking in the notorious “I Support Rob Ford in his professional life, and Forgive him in his personal life” Facebook group for months, without saying much (aside from the time when I mocked offence at the term ‘retard’ claiming to have a child with Down’s Syndrome, causing a mini-brouhaha in the forum).

However, a few weeks leading up to election day, Ford had made a massive faux pas during a debate by claiming some of his best friends were Jews when asked to explain one of his brother’s infamous hate speech tirades.  Ford Nation took to his defence, attempting to normalize anti-semitism of Dear Leader with the brilliant question above.  I could not hold myself back and figured there was no more sense in keeping my cover. And so I spoke out.  And this is what happened.

I’ve never used the FB “Ask a question” function, but I don’t think it was used properly in the situation above….
