Once again Warren Kinsella has shown what a brilliant political strategist he is:
Warren Kinsella, who leads the so-called rapid response “war room” for Chow’s mayoral campaign, made the comment on Twitter. He also posted a map in which he puts the following satirical words in Tory’s mouth: “You will note we were careful to exclude Jane/Finch and Rexdale from SmartTrack.”
“Is John Tory’s Smart Track, you know, Segregationist Track?” Kinsella wrote. In a post immediately prior, he wrote: “John Tory: if you don’t come from his demographic, he doesn’t give a s— if you lose transit service.”
Kinsella deleted the tweets and offered a qualified apology to Tory when a reporter contacted him and the campaign more than 12 hours later.
And to make matters even worse, Chow’s spokesman gets caught lying about Kinsella’s role:
Chow spokesman Jamey Heath said Kinsella is a mere “volunteer” on the campaign, though he acknowledged that Kinsella’s company is being paid for “media monitoring” work. He tried to distance the campaign itself from Kinsella’s words. (see here)
It’s not like Kinsella hasn’t gone around libelling others as racists:
Just that this time the Media Party cares.
