Like getting beaten over the head with a big fat Rainbow stick

As I watched this video, the only thing I could think was that Rob Ford made the right decision in not bowing to the pressure.  Not necessarily because I didn't think he should go, but because this would have happened regardless of if he had shown up.

Just once though, I would like to see an activist actually think about the imagery that they are portraying.  The fact that they are on camera bashing Ford (in effigy) with a big stick with a rainbow handle tells you all you need to know about their frame of mind and that Pride week isn't about pride anymore.

  1. There really doesn't seem to be much enthusiasm in the crowd, or even with the people doing the bashing. I'm guessing the people who thought of the idea expected a blood-thristy crowd reaction, but it failed. It just seemed like a stunt that didn't work.
