The Staggering Hypocrisy of Politicians

"“These are all people who are loved,” she said. “These are brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, and I think this is a staggering loss of life of a preventable cause.”

This from an article on the Toronto Star website.

It's typical of the left-wing, crypto-communist, virtue-signaling, and downright bullshit crud that emanates from that disgusting rag on a regular basis.

The reason I selected that quote was because of the irony of the suggestion that all of these unfortunate victims of human mortality seem to have received no help from the people who supposedly "loved" them.

And since the people who supposedly loved them had done nothing to stave off the "preventable" cause of death, it is a failure of "all of us," according to City Councilor Joe Cressy (Trinity-Spadina).

That's you and me. We are guilty of the deaths of 27 homeless people, and we didn't even know it. For similar reasons, many of us are also guilty of benefiting from "White Privilege," even though we didn't know that either(!)

Don't you just love it when a politician, who's job is basically to sit on his ass and opine about how he and his colleagues should spend other people's money, uses the word, "US," when what he really means is "YOU," the taxpayer?

Here's my advice to Councilor Cressy.

If you REALLY feel responsible for the deaths of homeless people, as an individual rather than one who prefers to hide behind the relative comfort, and lack of tangible commitment, that is afforded by blending one's own degree of devotion into the collective, "US," I recommend you pick up a hammer and some boards and start building houses for these people.

Anything less than that is just just meaningless virtue signaling.

Anything more than that?

Don't expect it from a politician.

And this just in from the City of Hamilton. Local politicians who sit on their asses and wag their tongues for a living are now talking about spending money, which is NOT their own money, on providing free air conditioners to poor people. Isn't that big of them?

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
Poor Uber Driver Oh my. This is a sad story. Here is an Uber driver voicing his concerns in the Uber driver's forum about whether or not his "sharing economy" gig is paying off. It's possible that this is not a genuine post from a genuine Uber driver. I see that. It's the kind of schlopp I would write if I were in a mischievous mood. On the other hand, given what I already know about the Uber scam, and the people it exploits in order to get them to employ "assets they already own," in Tim Hudak's famous phrase, it's entirely reasonable to believe that this is a REAL Uber driver, who is just beginning to figure out who is making money, or should be making money, and who is getting royally boned. (See my story about the Uber driver who drove a football player from Chicago to Buffalo for minus $38.50.) I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That is why, when people asked me why, instead of tolerating the City of Hamilton's demonstrably abs…
Matthew Green in a Nutshell Well, not just Matthew Green. These criticisms broadly apply to most politicians, especially those of a communist, or "liberal," bent. But since Mr. Green seems to enjoy the publicity he gets when squirting his virtue signals on every political hydrant he can find, to bolster his self-image as some kind of hero for the marginalized, I will use him as an example in this analysis. He just got more digital ink on (where else?) the CBC website. Now he's pretending to care about people who, for whatever reason, choose to patronize payday loan places. He claims, "he's tired of what he says is a predatory industry that preys on Hamilton's most vulnerable." And by this, he is not referring to that predatory industry that pays his salary at the expense of the tax vulnerable customers of the Corporation of the City of Hamilton. (You know, like the people who are being forced to pay for engineered gridlock on Hamilton's downtown…
