Anti-gay councillor Mammoliti stalks Toronto Dyke March

| July 3, 2011

Ostensibly searching for evidence of "hate speech" at Toronto's Dyke March, anti-gay city councillor Giorgio Mammoliti videotaped participants along the entire route on Saturday afternoon. See the video of the creepfest at the end of this post.

Mammoliti has been a leading force in attempts to cut city funding for Pride Toronto, after allowing Queers Against Israeli Apartheid to march in last year's parade. (The City Manager subsequently ruled in Pride Toronto's favour, because the phrase "Israeli apartheid" does not violate the city's anti-discrimination policies.)

Mammoliti has a long history of being creepy when it comes to LGBT issues. But this instance of stalking definitely takes the cake.

On Twitter, #PeepingMammoliti became a trending topic in Toronto on Saturday afternoon.

Mammoliti wasn't the only creepy right-winger watching the March: http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/happy-pride

Oldgoat, Shelley Carol was one of the 1st to notice, and tweeted a pic of Mammolitti and his camera. Remember when he toured the strip club in '09? http://www.thestar.com/News/GTA/article/609210 Wookie in Heat, you're probably a troll, but what the hell: as a Toronto taxpayer, I feel it's salient to know this guy was filming titties on my dime under the guise of exposing the hoards of antisemetic lesbians supposedly rampaging through our fair city streets.

Mammoliti appeals to a sizeable neo-fascist constituency in Catholic Ontario.

Clearly, someone filming the parade noticed Mammoliti walk by.  I guess being a good citizen they were concerned about the motives of a noted nuckle dragging phobe like him filming a Dyke march and decided to keep an eye/lens on him.  Makes perfect sense to me.

 

*waves to Andrew*

mammoliti was filming a parade, this person was following mammoliti around filming just him, but mammoliti is the creepy stalker?

 

some twisted logic there.
