Doug Ford disavows support from alleged Neo-Nazi
Doug Ford says he condemns the views of an alleged, Montreal-based Neo-Nazi who claims to have thrown his support beind the Ontario PC party leader.
I condemn this guy’s views and everything he stands for. If he knew anything about Ford Nation, he would know we welcome people from all backgrounds, religion, & income levels. Nice try, Liberals. #DesperateWynne https://t.co/2nz5nwUA9k— Doug Ford (@fordnation) May 6, 2018
The Tweet comes following a release from the Liberals' communications department which claims that the individual, who goes by the name "Charles Zeiger", endorsed Doug Ford on a recent podcast hosted by white supremacist site "The Daily Stormer."
"For months the Conservative Party and Doug Ford have tolerated intolerance," says Liberal candidate for Toronto-Danforth Li Koo in the release.
"The endorsement of Canada's most notorious neo-Nazi is a predictable consequence of their actions."
According to images in the YouTube video, the podcast was originally uploaded on March 12, 2018. You can view the uploaded audio here.
The Liberals are also asking Ford to explain why it took him so long to remove Tanya Granic Allen from the party. Ford announced late Saturday that she was no longer with the PCs.
