Canadian HRC Now Going After Comedian Who Insulted Hecklers

Take my rights, please.

Ms. Pardy [the complainant] could not be reached yesterday for comment. However, the tribunal's decision says she alleges she was discriminated against over her sex and sexual orientation when Mr. Earle [the comic/defendant] made public comments "intended to humiliate her."

Um, yeah, that's the point of most anti-heckler comebacks.

...

Reached yesterday, Mr. Earle said he was the show's emcee when Ms. Pardy and two of her friends walked in, sat in the booth closest to the stage and began heckling him and other comics.

"Two of them started making out, flipping me the bird and saying I hated lesbians," he said.

...


"They were drunk, they were being jerks and I was very rude and visceral to them because, like I said, if you have a heckler what you want to do is put them in their place by offending them, so I tried to hit them where it hurts and the only thing I had to key on was the fact that they were lesbians.

"I don't care if they're lesbians, heterosexuals, homosexuals or giraffes."

Mr. Earle said the complaint is an attack on comedians' right to perform. "I would never have expected it would get escalated to a philosophical battle."

I can only hope that Canadians are beginning to wake up to the threat of PC thought police armed with the full power of the state.
