I was embarrassed after a flock of drunken idiots trashed downtown and made us the butt of every NHL fan's jokes. Again.
I was embarrassed after Bertuzzi broke Moore's neck on the ice.
This is Vancouver. This is the birthplace of Greenpeace and the heart and soul of the environmental movement in North America.
We believe in inclusion, diversity, and the very firm separation of church and state.
We don't like people who kill wild animals for fun or thump Bibles in our faces and tell us what we should believe or which god's the biggest and baddest. You don't like that? Airport's right south of the city beside Richmond. Easy cab ride, can get there on the new skytrain line within minutes from the downtown core.
When I go to Florida or Nashville and start twittering my left-wing, liberal dogma to all and sundry down there, that's when I'll feel sorry for poor little David Booth.
I don't give a rat's ass what Booth's religious beliefs are. Or Hamhuis's, or anyone else's, for that matter. I don't care if he's a Moonie, Mormon, Shiite Muslim, or Satanist. As long as he puts the biscuit in the basket, I profoundly do not give a flying ****. But know this: the INSTANT he or anyone else barges onto social media to preach one way or another, he becomes just another schmuck on the internet who's fair game just like the rest of the unwashed masses whether he or likes it or not. He does that, as far as I'm concerned, he might as well be one of the Leafs fans in the trade forum telling us all how Luongo's worth less that Kadri and a 2nd.
And that's that.
Don't like it? Don't do it, Booth. Smarten the **** up.
BARGES ONTO SOCIAL MEDIA ??! Bahahahahaahahahahahahahahahah
I found the owner of the internet everyone !! He's right here !
Don't like it, don't read it ! The onus is NOT on the poster online. It's on the reader. Even on this site. It's on you to block someone, as I'm doing in droves after this disgusting revelation.
And this IS definitely up there with other pathetic fan actions as the riot in my opinion. NO one deserves flack for their beliefs, no matter how many times they express them on THEIR social media platforms. There are certain things off limits to critism as a celebrity and this is one of them.
