I haven’t been to every nook and cranny in Toronto, but I don’t think there’s a single Confederate flag flying, nor a single statue to a Confederate, for obvious historical reasons.
Well, there’s this one-day street festival in Toronto called Highland Creek Heritage Festival, and there are some novelty cars there, including a replica of the stunt car from the show The Dukes of Hazzard, that was popular about 25 years ago.
And one lady, Ybia Anderson, didn’t like it, and she had a melt-down. I’ll show you just some of her must-see rant.
She wants to ban a replica car because it has a Confederate flag on it.
Hey, can the city do that?
Can it just ban things it doesn’t like — private property, like a car?
Or Che Guevara shirts? Or those Trump “MAGA” hats?
I’m sure city lawyers have told Neethan Shan, the city councillor behind the ban, that it’s unconstitutional. But he doesn’t care.
And if you were a Toronto city councillor, what would you rather talk about? A shocking rise in violent crime?
How about the highest electricity prices in Canada, pretty much in North America?
A lot easier for a no-name Toronto politicians to get tough on them there Duke Boys, fictional characters from an old American TV show.
