Who really cares what Moore thinks? He has proven himself to be an idiot!

Mickey • 8 years ago

It's so nice to see (for once) a celebrity actually inform themselves and speak with intelligence instead of those that act like ford nationers and don't inform themselves but just call all those that criticize ford "lefttards, commies, gay, unemployed, living in moms basement" types.

disqus_GHBtSclS1r • 8 years ago

Yes he really put a lot of effort into informing himself. We should all be so clueless and delusional, so we can be grateful for Michael Moore putting in the effort to inform himself on the political issues of Toronto and Ontario. While the liberals double the debt load over 11 years, double that of the State of California. While they have the interest on our debt as the fastest rising expenditure in the Province. While they have our hydro rates as the most expensive in North America, and our unemployment rates consistently above the national average, thankfully Michael Moore tuned into late night American talk show to inform himself about Rob Ford, while he thinks the liberals here are doing a fantastic job. What an informed American celebrity. What a pile of liberal dog ****

Goggles Paisano • 8 years ago

Moore is a big fat ugly leftard. Not so sure he is gay though.

ifthisisit • 8 years ago

So we should listen to an American about Canadian politics? They cannot even get their own $h1t together.
What ever Moore, you're a douche, and your douchebaggery is not welcomed in Canada.

1concerned_canadian • 8 years ago

Who does Michael Moore think he is?
A braindead-progressive-liberal like Moore would disapprove of anybody wanting to keep the books in the black.

Braindead-progressive-liberals like Moore love to see the red ink flow all over the books.

newheights • 8 years ago

He's brain dead? O really. And I suppose having all of the wealth going to 1% of the population really helps us all stay in the red?

1concerned_canadian • 8 years ago

Your comment is so far removed from mine it really puts your in that Braindead-progressive-liberal group.
Obviously you want the books flowing in red ink.

Davey • 8 years ago

Moore can't vote! All that matters is what we think.

bpiets • 8 years ago

lol..a comedian wishing he had the toronto sun advertisements each day that ford and comp get every day in many an write up ...lol..but he is right...lol..like him we want MMMMOOOOORRRREEEE ....TOO...from city hall....

Deplorable Reverend Ken • 8 years ago

Mikeeee the moron says what? He just ensured Fords win.

Hux • 8 years ago

Toronto,get rid of this mess. If you have intelligence and merit.

colchar • 8 years ago

Who cares what some American says?

Jackblob • 8 years ago

You question seems awfully general and in that vein I'd say a lot of people the world over care what some Americans say because it impacts all our lives.

gtaguytoo • 8 years ago

not in this particular case, he's just a blowhard.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

I disagree but you're entitled to your opinion. He has stated several times that he cares about his country and wants to do his part to make it better. Sounds alright to me. The majority appreciate his films and hold him in good regard.

BTW, in what way do you consider him a blowhard?

whitebrown • 8 years ago

Who really cares , what an American thinks of our city, or who we elect ?

Jackblob • 8 years ago

Thus there is no reason for people to get upset. Nevertheless, a whole bunch of conservatives are here bashing Moore for saying what he thinks. Go figure.

Shoes99 • 8 years ago

I haven't been in on the bashing, but I'm guessing that a lot of people dislike Moore because he is a total hypocrite.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

How is he a hypocrite?

Shoes99 • 8 years ago

For one thing, he criticizes rich people, and HE is a rich person. Also, he uses ambush tactics to make his so-called movies, but doesn't allow cameras in the building when he gives a speech, so as not to be ambushed in the same way he ambushes others. He says he's against guns, and yet his bodyguards carry guns. Shall I go on?

Jackblob • 8 years ago

Surely you know he never criticized someone just for being rich. With that established, tell me how exactly is he criticizing rich people?

Moore has said many times that he is not against guns. Why do people like you keep saying that?

Go on...

Shoes99 • 8 years ago

Have you not heard him on talk shows? Have you seen one of his so-called movies? Don't you realize that he is using poor people to make more money for himself? That's why he is called Moore. He wants Moore money, and Moore fame!
Anyway, I'm just telling you why I think a lot of people dislike him. If you like him, more power to you.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

So, you did not address my comment and probably because you can't.

I've seen his movies and I've seen him on talk shows. He comes across as he says: Someone who cares about his country and is doing his part to make it get better.

How is he using poor people to make his money???

Shoes99 • 8 years ago

Maybe you should watch his movies again. Perhaps you need to listen to him a little more carefully. He said he was going to move to Canada when Bush got re-elected. That never happened because he's a hypocrit.
He uses poor people in his movies, but pays them peanuts. He's a fat cat in the true sense of the word, but he pretends to be an advocate for the little guy. Lol.
As I said Moore power to you, if you're one of his fans.

james • 8 years ago

only snobs live in hog town

crumbinator • 8 years ago

And let me guess: Only hogs live in snob town?

B. Paps • 8 years ago

Would we not be remiss to say that we also criticized Americans for 8 years after they voted in George W. Bush? How many actually knew the depth of his indiscretions and political gaffes (not personality gaffes) while in power? Few did and i'm sure most here who are dismissive of Moore need to reflect carefully....

Jackblob • 8 years ago

You're asking conservatives to be introspective? Sounds like Mission Impossible.

nomorofodofo • 8 years ago

true, Ford is odd and lives in the past.

seligcir • 8 years ago

I like Michael Moore and respect his opinons and enjoy his movies. And he is right, Ford should be voted out, but not because he is a conservative, but because is a adrunken bufoon and a poor leader. I am a social liberal and a fiscal conservative who realizes that we (Toronto, Ontario and Canada) can't afford the "liberal, progressive" politics he loves so much.

Guppie • 8 years ago

His movies deal with sensational half-truths at times, spun in the hopes of selling box office tickets. I understand that this needs to be done but I've seen him do it one too many times, culminating in his cornering Charleton Heston, the then president of the NRA, at his home. That was the end of Michael Moore movies for me.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

You say Moore's movies are "spun in the hopes of selling box office tickets". There you go again making stuff up. Pathetic.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

Please tell us all about these half-truths to which you are referring.

Personally, I lost a lot of respect for Heston when he made that famous quote, "I'll give you my gun when you take it from my cold, dead hands". Typical right wing fanatical statement.

seligcir • 8 years ago

If any organization needs to be slapped down, it is the NRA. And I'm a hunter.

Guppie • 8 years ago

I completely agree with you.

Higher taxes? No thanks • 8 years ago

Moore is a tool.... Period.
An American criticizing Ford when their own politicians are racist, bible-thumping, crack, murder and war lovers

nomorofodofo • 8 years ago

oh, I missed the part where Moore supports racist right-wing US politicians. Can't really straighten out your comment so it makes sense, as usual. Ford is Tea Party creeping over the border? Bull's eye, time to throw the Tea Party creeps out of Toronto.

Higher taxes? No thanks • 8 years ago

Tea Party??
Racist?

Hung-over today are you?? Or did you lose your crack pipe?

gtaguytoo • 8 years ago

no kidding. when you compare the 2 parties in America they line up this way in comparison to Canada; The Democrats are very close to the NDP and the Republicans and farther right than the Conservatives and the Tea Party resides on a different planet altogether. To compare any conservative to the Tea Party just shows ignorance.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

The Democrats are not close to the NDP.

The Republicans and Conservatives have become more and more alike over the past 15 years. The Reform party was our diluted version of the Tea party and they got absorbed into the Conservative fold and they are still there.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

worstmayorever's comment makes a lot more sense than your silly rant about American politicians.
If I were you, I wouldn't be debating which of you two uses the crack pipe.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

I disagree but am willing to see why you think Moore is a "tool".

Higher taxes? No thanks • 8 years ago

Moore is another lefty tool who opposes the right while embracing the wrong lefties.....PERIOD
What does he know about our Council of Clowns???
What does he know about TO politics - aside from Kimmel's jokes?

B. Paps • 8 years ago

Only 39% of Canadians voted Conservative in the last election...are 60% of Canadians tools?

Higher taxes? No thanks • 8 years ago

Thats almost twice as many as voted for Kathie.
And we're her Revenue Tools.

nomorofodofo • 8 years ago

Someone of limited intelligence, like Ford, is going to say "100%" and "period" a lot. Period. It is as it is, and what isn't understood, most of reality, nuance, complexity, is dismissed. I don't give a rat's ass what Moore says, but to answer your question, he knows a hell of a lot more about our city than you do or ever will.

Higher taxes? No thanks • 8 years ago

Hilarious.
My cat knows more about TO than you.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

Now I see why you won't respond to my comment. You've got nothing worth saying.

Jackblob • 8 years ago

So, what you really have a problem with is Moore's lefty views. Being a lefty makes him a tool? Most Canadians are politically on the left.

What does he know about Toronto? I don't know but I will not presume he knows nothing as you have done.
