Get to know the white, nationalist Toronto-based girl, who is questioning the controversy with her extreme right-wing views & # 39;
Faith Goldy must have felt like a winner after being the mayor of Toronto last month.
Despite being unabashed pro-white, thousands of right-wing, nationalist, white supremacy supporters in the city came out to vote for her.
In a field of 35 candidates for the mayor, Goldy easily beat the rest and finished third with almost 26,000 people who voted for her.
Probably she had never heard of her before she entered the Toronto race and demanded that she be given a "serious candidate" status and be part of the mayoral debates.

Goldy was recently a candidate for the mayor of Toronto, where she finished third with 3.4% of the votes with almost 26,000 votes with her extreme viewing figures
Goldy even managed a publicity stunt with Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and the current lawyer for Donald Trump
The moment her participation in the debates became an issue, however, thousands of them heard of her.
The controversy gave Goldy a profile she longed for. And although opponents sometimes find it better to silence candidates than to talk to them, the Toronto Star claims that they could have received more votes if the media had allowed it to share the platform and spread its views .
She carried out a campaign that happily makes the language of the Trumpian parrot like Toronto safe again! & # 39; and the media is really the enemy of the people! & # 39;
She suggested that if she lost the mayoral election, it came about because the election was manipulated & # 39; used to be.
Goldy's extreme right-wing platform promised to expel illegal immigrants from Toronto's homeless shelter and return them to homeless Canadians.
Her campaign flyer stated: "Only Faith Goldy will evacuate illegal migrants from our city and Toronto First! & # 39;
She promised to offer subsidized housing only to people born in Canada, to stop illegal immigration, to check imams and Islamic organizations with a view to revoking the permits of mosques where extreme views are taught.
Goldy could not appear during the debates in the mayoral because of her extreme views
Goldy ran a campaign that happily made the language of the Trumpian parrot like Toronto safe again! & # 39; and the media is really the enemy of the people! & # 39;
Goldby wanted to bring back a procedure known as "carding", whereby the police may stop black and brown people to answer police questions, even if they are not suspected of committing a crime.
Goldy's views have been described as far-right and white nationalists. She wrote and reported for The Rebel Media, a Canadian right-wing media website.
A typical report by Goldy about her unsavory opinion occurred in March 2017, when she placed a video of herself on Twitter in the Palestinian city of Bethlehem expressing her shock that she could hear an Islamic call to prayer in the city.
She suggested that the Christian population of Bethlehem is ethnically cleansed & # 39 ;.
Her campaign flyer stated: "Only Faith Goldy will evacuate illegal migrants from our city and Toronto First! & # 39; – following a similar rhetoric of the White House
A month later she suggested that the Canadian government was involved in White Genocide & # 39; after comparing the foreign immigration policy of the country with the Third World.
She suggested that the European population in Canada would be replaced as a result of the inclusion of immigrants from other countries around the world.
Goldy was also involved in the events around the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia according to The Cut, which wrote a long piece in which she was profiled.
Goldy scoffed against demonstrators and complained about apparent police bias against the right-wing demonstrators.
However, her contract was terminated after she appeared in an interview on The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website, which talked about the incident in Charlottesville.
In December 2017, Goldy appeared on an alt-right podcast and recited a white supremacist slogan, the fourteen words.
In August, Goldy covered the deadly protest against the right people in Charlottesville, where she showed sympathy for the right-wing demonstrators. She was later discharged from her job
Goldy suggested that she would lose the Mayors' election in Toronto because it & # 39; RIGGED & # 39; used to be
After being challenged to pronounce the slogan, she continued: & # 39; I do not see that as controversial … We want to survive. & # 39;
Goldy has already recommended a book in which the & # 39; elimination of Jews & # 39; was advocated and on a podcast said that homosexuality was a reason for the Holocaust.
Crowdfunding site and Patreon suspended her account in May 2018 and then she was banned from PayPal in July, preventing her from receiving payments.
Despite its controversial views, however, The Star believes that there is something to be said about allowing such high-profile, extreme-right personalities and racists a place to express their thoughts so that others can separate their arguments.
Columnist Royson James writes: "The confrontation with them and their calling out is a better strategy – especially if their statements and policies are aligned in coded words and ideas that we have long deciphered as dog whistles intended for like-minded people under an invisible flag. to collect. Evil grows in the dark. Open debate is a disinfectant, not something to be afraid of. & # 39;
