Naked Bike Riders in Toronto can't agree on why they're going nude

David MenziesMission Specialist

The naked... truth? The annual Naked Bike Ride Toronto took to the streets of Hogtown on Saturday. Some participants are avid nudists. Others are anti-oil crusaders. 

Yet the question (ahem) arises: while going nude and dumping on oil for the #WorldNakedBikeRide might be a jolly good idea on a beautiful warm and sunny June day, maybe clothing and oil aren’t all that bad in January when the streets are covered in snow and the windchill is pushing minus-30?

The greatest problem that all western nations face is ‘Globalism’ which is among other things, the dogma that will cause the death of the whole white race. We have two choices, take a gun put it to your head and pop one off or fight back. The choice is ours.
Merkel, Macron, May and Trudeau are all Globalist deadbeats that need to be taken care of…..In a diplomatic way, of course.

I find it hard to get too upset about this. Make sure to bring some disinfectant wipes for your bike-share seat, though.

So, let me see if I have this straight. The UN believes that CO2, emitted from whatever source, might kill up to a million species of plants and/or animals???

CO2 is food for plants which will flourish with more CO2 and many animals eat plants. "’

I’m curious if you’re aware what happened to Lake Erie about 50 years ago, when too much “plant food” got into it. (aka, why they’ve phased out phosphate detergents in the last 20 years) The algal growth was indeed quite luxuriant, to the exclusion of pretty much everything else.

Carbon’s not usually the limiting nutrient, but if it is, it’s a great way to throw off off fine ecological balances. Unless you’re running a greenhouse, which isn’t exactly one of those to start with.

Dan Mancuso : Maybe they are testiculating (new word) rather than gesticulating…..
You know how obsessed society today seems to be with anything referring to…..or resembling human anatomical features that I think….are not for public viewing.
Perhaps you are offended because……..you have morals??

Yeah, sorry, I just can’t take someone – or what they’re saying – seriously, while they stand there naked, ranting nonsense and wildly gesticulating on a public street…
Besides, there’s an aesthetic involved here, with naked people sitting on bicycle seats…it offends…and I’m not even sure why.

Matt please. That is not censorship. It is saving us from being grossed out. If I wanted to see fat flabby bodies past their prime I would go to a nudist colony. It is indecent exposure, flashing.

What isn’t climate change used as an excuse for?
Toronto a nudist colony now? You know that eventually Sharia will be brought in to purge the place. Ask a Muslim. I sure as hell don’t want sharia, but I don’t want this allowed either. Join a damn colony and get off the streets.

Its not legal, it is just tolerated for some reason.

I do not believe in censorship, why do you ???
blurring pictures only deletes reality ,
there is nothing wrong with showing reality as it is !!!
get with it !!!

Off topic, another snippet of news from the UK.

8% to 10% of all stabbings in the London (UK) area are committed by children aged between 8 and 10 years old. No nationality given.

Source, Sky News.

Theresa May has just declared that the UK will be Carbon free by the year 2050 and has enacted the laws that will make this happen….She dose not say how.

What a bunch of Bummers and all in love with their selves.

Reminds me of when Pink Floyd made a video of his Bicycle song, he hired one hundred girls to ride around London in the nude, he renting 100 new bikes for them to use and when it was all over and they returned the bikes They had to buy 100 new saddles…..this is a true story.

So where is the down side?

Let’s see them out there when it’s minus 30 something. Their small bits would freeze off in a nano second! I hope you were able to shield your eyes David!

Well…seeing the picture of the cyclists, I now know why Toronto is called hog-town.

These people lost all credibility with me when I realized they’re protesting the use of fossil fuels but can’t even use the right spelling for the plural of “gas”.

It’s “gases”, not “gasses”.

More than one gas = gases
Johnny routinely fills up his car with fuel = Johnny regularly gasses up.

Stupid sources probably shouldn’t be quoted. Unless, of course, the intent is to show they’re stupid.

I can’t even finish the video David because what these people are doing and representing is just so blatantly stupid it’s beyond words!! Toronto you have truly without a doubt turned into a first class shithole. Is that province seriously void of any common sense,values,morals-you should be ashamed of yourselves,truly pathetic.

Will these buffoons dare to try that stunt in China, India, Bangladesh or Nigeria the biggest polluters & emitter of toxic gases on this earth? I would really like to see what response they get from locals for their warped mentality.
Progressiveness along with unchecked liberalism is biggest scourge in this world.

Bet you slimeball Tory was out there taking a peek in his trench coat !!
