    Anti-Trump busybody fails to have Ontario judge disciplined for wearing MAGA t-shirt

    The Ontario Judicial Council has decided not to discipline former Progressive Conservative MPP turned Superior Court Judge Toni Skarica for wearing a Trump shirt to the grocery store.

    It all started when Lorne Warwick and his wife spotted Skarica wearing the “Make America Great Again” shirt and wrote a complaint suggesting his apparent bias would make it impossible for the judge to be impartial.

    Oh brother. That person needs to get a life! Come on, the guy should be able to wear whatever he wants to the grocery store for gods sake.

    Then there's this:

    Washington DC police officer suspended for shirt with white supremacist imagery | Miami Herald

    This case is different because he wore the shirt while on duty. Much different scenario.

    I'm not up on white supremacist symbolism but the 'Nazi cross' had manifold usage before, during and after the Nazis. But then the same is true of the swastika.

    This shirt was worn on duty. There, if El Capitan tells you to ditch it then you do.

    This doesn't seem like much of a news item. A citizen files complaint against judge; it is investigated; found meritless; no discipline is applied (or, in this case, warranted).

    On the other hand, a judge (of the same court no less) who wore a MAGA hat in court is in trouble:

    Interesting question is what's the deal with Hamilton court and the trumpist judges? Does it have to do with growing immigrant population in the city?
