Comedian faces human rights hearing in Canada after lesbian jokes [NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN CANADA]
Vancouver Sun ^ | Jun 25 08 | David Wylie

Posted on 06/26/2008 6:01:22 PM PDT by camerakid400

A Canadian stand-up comedian will face a human rights tribunal hearing after a woman complained she and her friends faced a "tirade of homophobic and sexist comments" while attending one of his shows.

In a decision released this week, the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal ruled there is enough evidence to hear the case of Vancouver woman Lorna Pardy against Toronto comedian Guy Earle. Zesty's Restaurant in Vancouver, where the May 22, 2007, show took place, was also named in the complaint. The restaurant has since closed.

You can't tell politically incorrect jokes in Canada. Someone might get offended.

Pretty frightening how fascism and communism seem to be spreading more and more throughout the world. And you can be absolutely sure that an Obama victory in November will put this country on the fast track to this kind of fascism as well. Bet on it.

Let’s just hope that the “true conservatives” don’t decide to “teach us all a lesson” again, like in 2006, and sit this one out.

This is what happens to a country who has been coddled and sheltered by its sugar daddy to the south for 60 years. It gets bored and starts to create controversy out of thin air.

Perhaps its time to put Canada on a human rights watch list.

Obama and his ilk want to relegate the United States to Third World status.

Canada is becoming a dour and humourless land because humour is nearly always at the expense of someone or some animal and that is illegal in Canada. There can be no butt of a joke. PC people are direct cultural descendants of the Mathers.

Yeah, they should vote for a conservative...such as Bob Barr. Let's hope that people don't sell out and vote for one of the liberals, such as McCain or Obama.

Her friends told her she had no chance to win in court but she said she was sure she could lick 'em in a fight.

Importantly, when commenting on this, be sure to compare this comedian to Lenny Bruce, that grotesque, foul mouthed radical leftist free speech icon.

This will hit liberals where it hurts, because it will compare them (rightfully) to the anal retentive censors of old they so despise.

Rub their noses in it. Rhetorically ask whether the “Human Rights Commission” is going to demand “negro” segregation next, or make women quit their jobs and get back into the kitchen “barefoot and pregnant”.

An especially tender subject in Canada, perhaps the “Human Rights Commission” will order Native American children to be taken from their parents and raised in government schools.

Bob Barr used to work for the legal consultantancy that represents NAMBLA.

He deserves no votes from anyone.

I guess we will need to invade Canada and free the people from PC Nazis.We can bring them into our union once and for all. We tried twice before and were beaten—third times a charm. Then we can have Obamas 57 states.

The BC HRT (kangaroo court) is itself a COMEDY SHOW and infinitely more offensive than almost any standup comic banter with hecklers.

I hope may of you followed the Steyn case.

Now you're catching on to what's so terribly strange about Obama. He lets slip every now and then that his "present" is different than our "present". His state count worked perfectly if you admit Puerto Rico and each Canadian province EXCEPT Quebec (which is presumably a foreign country in Obama's present).

The dude is obviously a time traveler making a visit to the past to create havoc so that he can be rich and powerful in the future.

And I suppose you'd attack Charlton Heston's memory because the NRA has worked with the ACLU, or that guns have been misused (in crime).

Plus, I know people who have worked for agencies of the same government that fights to protect NAMBLA's right to espouse its despicable views.

I should probably hold them and their views in contempt, except for the fact that I think a bit more deeply than that, to understate it.

I got a look at this gentleman on You Tube. He is explaining his act to a thankfully sympathetic cheerful crew.

A few extra items, it was on a Tuesday and things were slow. He was trying to draw down the evening and sort of wrap it up. Two women came in and were pretty well on with drinks (no harm of course). He alleged they were "tongue and tonsil wrestling". He says he absolutely did not care. Then they started to heckle. He made this rather daring statement to them.

Neither of you are real lesbians. Fat and ugly,you just have to do that, because no guy will(expletive) you.

It got worse from there, including the "chest thing"- I presume challenging the man to a brawl.

Perhaps the man will jump start quite a career. He does have a sense of humour.

I have been to stand up comedy across the river in Michigan. Not my thing but..... Hey, Loretta Lynn's coming in July.

Hate all PC nazis and what they represent - no matter if they are from Canada or right here at home; ie. those whose hands lay heavier over our freedoms - by creaping, leaping measures - every day.

You can bet for certain; should the 'Left' win in November; neighborhood tribunals will be the next great idea to keep us safe in the 'hood'; while they disassemble 'real threats' to our Freedoms; such as the Patriot Act.

As was pointed out during Steyn’s Kangaroo hearing, the Human Rights Commission has found every single defendant guilty during its entire history.

I'm not sure what it is NAMBLA 'expresses' publicly, but what they profess is a criminal act in every jurisdiction in the land and therefor is not protected speech.

Think a little deeper --- you may come to understand that all speech is not and should not be protected.

Mr. Heston was a spokesman FOR the NRA/ACLU complex.

Yes...I see that it is insignificant. Both Messrs. Heston and Barr joined forces with the ACLU only on CONSERVATIVE issues.

You know, those issues that you hate, like having a less-intrusive government. Privacy, right to keep and bear arms, etc.

BTW, regarding a "less intrusive government", my experience in government has definitely honed my senses regarding what is or is not "intrusive" and what the difference between prying into the private business of American citizens and the criminal activities of foreigners.

About 99.99999% of everything you do leaves no record, or of it does that record is in such a mass of information that it's not of much value to anyone but yourself and your creditors.

The promise of the computer had been that such devices could ferret out relevant factoids in a morass of garbage and find nuggets of valuable information.

Alas, there's so terribly much information the spy (intelligence analyst) still has to have a good idea of what information he needs before he even goes after it.

I used to call these things "non Fourth Amendment" searches ~ and once you've done that, then you get a warrant to go get the info.

Takes as much time today to do that as it did a 100 years ago.

Now back to "intrusive government", nutcases and US Senators appear to be the only people on Earth who continue to believe that you can actually go hire folks to be bureaucrats who will "intrude".

The watchword in the federal bureaucracy the last twenty years has been to "work smart", which is a nice way of saying it's better to squeeze as much productivity out of the system that you can so that you don't have to spend all your time working.
