Think that’s offensive, commissar? Then hear this…

Mark Steyn starts:

Last week, Commissar Murray Geiger-Adams of the British Columbia “Human Rights” Tribunal pronounced stand-up comic Guy Earle guilty of the novel “human rights” crime of putting down lesbian hecklers in a homophobic manner. 
What on earth is wrong with being "abused" for 15 minutes with the following:  
"Do you have a strap-on? You can take your girlfriend home and fuck her in the ass"
"Are you on the rag; is that why you’re being such a fucking cunt?"
"stupid cunts"
"No one wants to watch two ugly lesbians kiss"
"Why don’t you fuck each other with your dildos?"

The judgement is horrifying in its presumption, it’s arbritrariness, its contempt for free speech, its disdain for a certain old-fashioned thing called “proof” and its sheer sense of Call me God. But Steyn’s column - unusually angry - does all that’s required to punish the wicked and this enemy of freedom.

  1. I think you'll find that Earle was simply pointing out that these lesbians were being homophobic themselves by aligning themselves with people of a certain sexual preference. Earle no doubt believes that all any sexual group shouldn't be given special preference and that we are all of one group - all wanting and needing a shag whatever way we can get it. Isn't that like your concept of race Andy?
