Marco (Niagara West-Glanbrook) over comments posted to his website
saying he can't condemn Nazi politics because it's just other people's
In a podcast on his website, lovehatethings.com, Marco goes on to say those who devote themselves to fighting Nazis are
"pretty messed up."
"For some people the old politics of Nazi Germany might be their
religion. And just as I can't condemn other people's religion, I
can't, I don't agree with them, but you can't stop somebody from
believing in something... You're the one who is pretty messed up if
you're going to devote your entire life to trying to convince somebody
not to believe what they believe."

Liberal candidate Bernie Farber (Thornhill), former CEO of the Canadian
Jewish Congress, says NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has no choice but to
dump her candidate.
"I've devoted my life to this cause, and there is no place in Ontario
politics for someone who doesn't understand that Nazis and everything
they stood for deserves condemnation," said Liberal candidate Bernie
Farber. "He needs to go."
