If it is true, it’s sad. If it’s not, it’s sick. Either way, Ford is written out of the script – another “man for the people” taken away in a too early, nasty fashion. It’s a message to all future pols who want to challenge the system that it’s dangerous, and a message to the people that you can’t have a leader who is intent on changing the status quo.
I posted my thoughts here, but let me add that the meme that he died, posted in the social media, circulated a few days ago. It was soon described as a hoax by his family.
Who would have put this meme out? The hoaxsters of this possibly psyOp themselves? Of course – it simply acts as a google search sponge to absorb all those that search for “Rob Ford death hoax”.
Rob Ford, the Toronto city councillor who became the world’s most famous mayor during a wild, scandal-filled term, is dead at age 46.The married father of two young children died after 18 months of treatment for a rare and aggressive cancer first diagnosed in the midst of his 2014 bid to be re-elected mayor. Ford would have turned 47 on May 28.
Rumors are swirling that our former populist mayor is on death’s door. I’ve stated many times that I don’t think he has cancer and this is all a (sick) hoax, but perhaps the hoax is ready to climax as he retires out of the spotlight.
The last major “for the people” populist Canadian pol to exit the state via cancer was Jack Layton. I wrote here that he too expired quickly, just as it became possible that he might ascend to a position of power and tilt the favor back towards the “people” when it came to public policy.
Is it psyop practice to allow populist leaders who appear to be against the fascist-like system we have of crony capitalism to ascend and then be removed by some unfortunate event (assassination or rapid cancer?) Kennedy x3, Jack Layton, Gaddafi, Pim Fortuyn are a few that come to mind.
