Will you still love him if it's revealed that he's a grommer?
What the hell is a grommer? But yes, I support his bringing to light what was happening in various parts of the U.K. to women & girls. The fact that the politicians & police were doing nothing to stop the horrible belief that non-Muslim women are ok to rape & sodomize is apparently ok? All he did was bring it to the public's attention because it was happening all over the country & nothing was being done. He's been called a racist, a bigot et al when in fact he's nothing of the sort. It's because we've been told to keep quiet about such "horrific stuff" as though it isn't happening but who is protecting our women & children? Obviously, (and he's stated categorically) that it's not ALL MUSLIMS but the rapes & sodomy have increased because it's men who believe women are here to be "used & abused" including their own. Those are the people that we need to get rid of & back to where they came from. Nothing wrong with that!

Ford kicks Goldie Ghamari out of caucus over 'serious lapses in judgment'

Ontario Premier Doug Ford kicked a backbencher out of the Progressive Conservative caucus on Friday after what he called repeated and serious lapses in judgment.


Goldie Ghamari, who represents the Ottawa-area riding of Carleton, recently took a virtual meeting with Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the far-right English Defence League.

After Ghamari posted on social media about the meeting, the National Council of Canadian Muslims called Robinson an Islamophobe and urged Ford to remove Ghamari from his caucus.

Ford’s office initially said in a written statement that the premier was “extremely disappointed” in Ghamari’s decision to give a platform to someone whose behaviour and beliefs are at odds with those of the government.

Ghamari wrote in a subsequent statement that she condemns all forms of Islamophobia and antisemitism, and that she was not aware of Robinson’s history prior to their meeting.


Ghamari said as an Iranian Canadian immigrant she took the meeting because Robinson wanted to discuss the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which was recently listed as a terrorist entity in Canada.

“We discussed #IRGCterrorists, its impact in Canada, and the 6-year effort of the Iranian-Canadian diaspora to put the IRGC on the Canadian terror list,” Ghamari wrote in her social media statement. “I hope that clarifies!”

But the explanation fell flat with Ford, who removed her from caucus Friday.

“This decision follows repeated instances of serious lapses in judgment and a failure to collaborate constructively with caucus leadership and as a team member,” his office wrote in a statement.

“While this decision did not come easily, it has become clear that MPP Ghamari can no longer continue in her role within our caucus.”

Ivana Yelich, a deputy chief of staff for Ford, said that the premier made his decision after seeing the explanation Ghamari offered for the meeting.

“Her subsequent statement claiming she wasn’t aware of Mr. Robinson’s history prior to their meeting speaks volumes about her judgement and honesty,” Yelich wrote.

Ghamari responded Friday on social media by writing, “when one door closes, another one opens,” ending her brief statement with an emoji of a hand holding up the peace sign.

A former Progressive Conservative backbencher in Premier Doug Ford’s government says she is disappointed with his “unilateral decision” to kick her out of caucus.


Goldie Ghamari, who represents the Ottawa-area riding of Carleton, was booted from caucus on Friday for what Ford called repeated lapses of judgment.

Ghamari came under fire last week after a virtual meeting with Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the far-right English Defence League.

Ghamari has said she was unaware of Robinson’s history before the meeting.



She says she spoke with him because she is an Iranian Canadian immigrant and he wanted to discuss the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has recently been listed as a terrorist organization in Canada.

The meeting sparked outrage, with the National Council of Canadian Muslims calling on Ford to remove her from caucus.

Ghamari says she will continue to support conservative policies and affirmed her commitment to her constituents.

“I don’t yet know what the future holds for me, but I am feeling very hopeful and optimistic,” Ghamari wrote on social media.

“I will be taking some time to reflect on my next steps. When one door closes, another door opens.”
