New video channels Rob Ford as a 10 year old

Posted by Chris Bateman / April 2, 2014

rob ford childRob Ford's excuses at the peak of the crack scandal were pretty childish - "I cannot comment on a video I haven't seen or does not exist," "you're not asking me the right question" - but in the mouth of an actual kid they're pretty, err, frightening.

Here's a short film that puts (slightly tweaked) Rob Ford quotes in the mouth of a 10 year old girl who is accused of breaking a window (or "doing the crack").

It's funny and scary at the same time.

Yes, he is. And this just underscores it yet again.

Know what's even more pathetic? There are still people out there who actually believe his lies about his awful track record and personal conduct and would like to see him get another term. That's really pathetic.

This is pathetic.

Earlier this week, fake signs in the park paid for by a company in B.C., and now this? Ford haters are a sad bunch indeed.

If you hate Ford so much, how about growing up, stop the lame-ass crap like this, and run an actual candidate against him? Otherwise, get lost.

We do have candidates running against him. Pay attention.

Oh, we've got candidates galore. But what will do him in at the next election is the fact that he's been deserted by everyone with more than half a brain. No Tory party backing this time. No clever strategists, just his brother, who's as thick as two bricks. Nobody downtown who thinks that taxes are the main issue. And, just like last time, he's got no vision for the city. What's fabulous is that he won't even be on council after he loses the election.

The only thing Ford has in common with a 10-year-old is his naitivite. He trusts people too readily. Hope he has a better understanding, now, of who the real a-holes are in this city. That was a tough lesson, I hope he and this city learned from it.

There's nothing funny about involving a 10-year-old in your BS.

Typical left crap.

I agree that Ford is naive...for example, he trusted drug dealers not to video him using. Most 10 year olds are much more intelligent and sophisticated.

Yawn another reason to talk about Ford. What if we let everything go silent with the Ford parody's and knock offs which other candidates would be talking about?

We wouldn't, have you nothing to say about any of the other candidates.

Positive or Negative everyone wants to talk about Ford.
Rob Ford the mayor you LOVE to hate.

If you think this is brilliant, wouldn't you like to see a brilliant campaign from one of the other candidates by turning you negative energy for Ford into a positive for another candidate instead of pointing your negative feelings directly at Ford - no one cares.

Funnt how the spoofs about Ford are better than any of the actual candidates ad campaigns themselves.

Why is in bad to not comment on a video you've never seen?

This is why conservatives and right wingers in general are against education.
No educated population of citizens would ever vote for anyone nearly as disgusting as Rob Ford.
In the meantime, this sleazoid thinks he is entitled because despite lying about DUI and drug arrests in Florida he still got elected. So why worry about the continuation of his sordid behaviour now??

This is more appropriate than you realize.
Rob Ford is the one who involved his preteens in a sick lie regarding pedophilia and child abuse so on and so forth. ONLY to score political points by playing his usual victim card which you have bought into.
Just remember folks: this perverted individual brought his kids into a fabricated yarn about child abuse to perpetuate his divisive politics

Which, like every other comment about Wynne, gas plants & the provincial Liberals Ford's slobbering sycophants weirdly inject into the comments any time something negative about Ford is posted, has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TOPIC AT HAND.

Why don't you go start up a site to grind your special little axe? Call it BlogWhatAboutWynne.com or AtLeastRobHasn'tKilledAnyoneYet.com? That way you and his other 17 remaining true believers can have your own special playpen where you won't be disturbed by people pointing out that your hero is an imbecile and so are his supporters.

@FordNation
Its fine to say he hung out with a-hole people, but as a grown man in a position of power, to be making that many bad personal decisions leaves me pretty uneasy about his decision making sills in a professional capacity. The fact that they are "private" issues you are in a public elected position and unfortunately for him , we do have the right to an explanation.

people can have compassion for mistakes, but its how you handle your mistakes that defines a person.

This goon (my apologies to all the goons out there) should be sent packing and I mean Yesterday.
He inherited a surplus, then raised taxes 2%, cut some services and privatized others thereby making some people lose their jobs and others to make less money.
Whoopdeedeedooooooo what a genius. WOW. imagine the genius. Surplus + raise taxes + push wages down + cut some services - where does this genius get these lofty intellectually supercharged powers from???

Brilliant. Figures it would take a child to lay Ford Nation bare. It's like a litmus test for idiots. If they don't get it, or even mildly like it, or at the very least recognize the funny, then clearly they're brain-dead mouthbreathers you can start to ignore.

I'll bet a lot of them are pissed as hell at this too...too stupid to recognize wit, too humourless to admit it's funny, too mad that they KNOW it's funny/dead-on, so they just got to roll out what inane misdirects they can think of.

I LOVED those spoof ads in the park, but THIS is brilliant. This going to make me smile for DAYS. Suck on it, morons.

If we really need to discuss an issue like a street name it should be an online poll that all residents have access to.

We weren't taking shots at the kid. We were taking shots at the child abusers who were involved in the making of this short film, and the posters on this thread who support it.

Can see by the left posts, none of you follow politics, other than the big headlines produced by the Liberal media.

There was no surplus when Ford ran for Mayor. There never is. The city coffers need to be empty when council begs the feds and the province for more money. That is the left system today, and it has ALWAYS been that way.

The Mandella street sign is just a cheap ploy by left councillors for black votes. They don't really give a hoot about blacks in Toronto. They only do enough to win votes, nothing more.

Bet if we put a rock, with Fords' face painted on it, the leftees could sit and stare at it for hours. You're so easily amuzed.

...Ford DID squander the massive, unprecedented surplus that Miller gifted him, only to blow it all within 9 months of taking office. NINE months. Emptied the coffers.

Then, with all the bootlicking Ford did with the police union contract, he put us in the biggest hole we've been in for years. Now this City is almost bankrupt, and it's delicious irony that a big part of it was Ford's extremely geenrous payoff to the police would come back to sting because now the TPS(and OPP) is going to lock Ford up.

Listen to OhBehave!, she makes a strong case: Rob Ford needs to have criminal charges brought against him. And if being a vile racist was illegal too, we'd throw him behind bars for that as well.
