Horwath continues to stand with Naziism minimizer

Hamilton-area NDP candidate Anthony Marco’s rambling, tongue-in-cheek podcast and blog rants are supplying the party’s critics with no end of ammunition.

The Liberals unearthed several more Wednesday in which the 42-year-old teacher calls Ontarians lazy, opines that elections are a drag and condemns parents for taking their “f …… kids” along with them to Las Vegas.

The candidate for Niagara West-Glanbrook was on the hot seat earlier for drawing a parallel between Nazism and religion during a profanity-laced podcast a year ago.

    Unbelievable. The guy is a TEACHER??? I’d pull my kid out of his class in a New York Minute if she were still that age. Horwath should have dumped him like a hot potato pronto, but it’s too late now.

    And, if a candidate says elections are a drag, it means that he’s too lazy to campaign. I worked on a provincial campaign myself and it was one of the most fun times I had. Boring? NOT.

    It galls me to watch someone who has the good fortune of a major party behind his candidacy screw it up like this. For me, it would be a gift and I would weigh everything I said before I said it–respect for the candidacy = respect for the perspective voters I am appealing to.

    This guy sounds more immature than the kids he teaches. Something’s really wrong with him, because most of us know that a person’s skull has a greater purpose than keeping one’s ears apart.

    Yes, I’m very surprised he is a teacher too. He does have a warning on his blog that the language may not be suitable for children, but there isn’t any kind of protection on it, so I suppose his students could read and listen to his podcasts if they wished (and hear themselves being referred to with profanities).

    Now, what’s up with this?
    Police Personnel Insulted by Candidate’s Comments

    Is this a parody or did Marco really say something to insult police, firefighters and doctors?

    Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between parody and just a truly, awful candidate.
