I'll Miss The Comedy Clubs

Earle had a chance to “be Mark Steyn,” but chose to remain a confused liberal, even donating some money to a gay charity in an attempt at atonement. It didn’t do him any good, as we see now [and as we all told him at the time.]

Why we need a CPC majority so we can fire each and every one of the skanky morons who work for the various HRC's across the land and close them all down for practicing Terminal Stupidity.

We do not need Kangaroo courts in Canada.

Embarrassed and angry, Robert. Y'all need to march on the BCHRT.

As for Earle, it's sad that the dude learned the hard way that in the PC world there's no grovelling your way back over the line you just crossed. He offended someone in the second-to-top PC-protected group - GBLT - whom are trumped only by Muslims.

Check out the bios of the BCHRT. Lawyers every one. Without the restriction on behavior implict in real courts of law, these people are nasty, vindictive fascists. I am no longer surprised by the decision. Disappointed, yes.

Posted by: Robert at April 21, 2011 12:39 PM

My sympathy for Earle is compromised because he’s been (is?) an idiot.

I was actually at one of his fund raisers a couple of years ago and gave him a generous donation. I also had a straightforward talk with him about the larger agenda of the HRCs and described to him how very dangerous they are. He didn’t seem to get it at all. It seems he’s a rather brain dead lefty. So, if he thought appeasing his hissy-fit, entitled defendants and tyrannical Star Chamber opponents would work, he’s found out the hard way that that’s not how it works.

If, after being “mugged by reality”, Earle still hasn’t learned that leftism is a crock, he deserves—well almost—what he got. (And no more donations from me to help him pay either!)

Boy!! Will this crap ever come to a grinding halt with a Harper majority!! Yeah, right.

Harper`s shown the same degree of bravery on the HRCs as the rest of them.

They`ll all run and duck when it comes to speaking out against this s**t.

Posted by: Jamie MacMaster at April 21, 2011 1:20 PM

I would not show up for such a kangaroo court. They would have to arrest me and take me to a real court to find out why I wouldn't show up to the fake court.

Earle is an idiot.

Posted by: Abe Froman at April 21, 2011 1:28 PM

Another fine example of how far the HRCs have wondered into the lala land of the regressive progressive left. I hope he appeals this decision to a real court of law.

Posted by: Rose at April 21, 2011 1:46 PM

Old military axiom: always be ready to reinforce success even when it shows itself at a
most unlikely time in a most unlikely place.

This case by contrast, is no "Bridge at Remagen" but might have good potential in a real
court to call off the excessive and punitive monetary penalties which are the stock in trade
of the nationwide HRC/HRT nest of vipers.

He needs to attend the next hearing in blackface and giant afro wig dressed like a dyke jump up on the desk drop his pants and do his routine with added confetti, ooga horns and hand buzzers, get it on video a la Ezra.
Admit he's wrong and tell everybody he's now a pre-operative dyke of colour and make the whole thing into a George Carlin "10 words you can't" thing, like "10 people not allowed an opinion".
Or quit and work for the gubmint like every other putz.

The BCHRT has done more to promote hatred/resentment towards "marginalized" groups, particularly, the Lesbian/Gay community through their elevating a Gay/Lesbian persons dignity, feelings, and self-respect above all other persons dignity, feelings and self respect.

If the BCHRT really cared about all persons dignity, feelings and self-respect, they would not have obliterated Earle's by accusing him of being a homophobic bigot and intimidating him for years,threatening and negatively impacting his very livelihood, and utterly destroying his reputation.

Pardy and Bloomgrove were feeling no pain at the time of the heckling, they were drunk - the PTSD claim is ridiculous. If anyone has a valid claim for PTSD, it's Earle - he has been tyrannized, as described above, publicly for an extended period.

The BCHRT is an agent provocateur of hate. It's true that "no giant anti-lesbian pogrom broke out after Guy Earle’s stupid comments" however, the same can not be said for the BCHRT's stupid decision. I suspect the BCHRT has created resentment towards the lesbian community in persons that hitherto did not exist as a direct result of their highly punitive, bias and discriminatory decision against Earle.

I am thinking that Earle's lawyer(s)advised him to make a donation to the gay community to help his defense and he complied due to the PTSD he is suffering on account of Pardy's, Bloomgroves, and the BCHRT's sustained emotional, mental, and financial abuse. Few can withstand sustained torture and interrogation without submitting-the BCHRT knows this-it's their most effective tactic as both Ezra and Mark have pointed out.

Section 13 belongs in file 13 and must be so filed without hesitation. This is a truly archaic evil tyrannical piece of pseudo-legislation that is destroying Canada's reputation internationally. Cannibalism for profit-what a legacy.

Posted by: Lucky Lori at April 21, 2011 2:13 PM

Earle should announce he doesn't recognize their authority in this matter...
It's not a real court...
Scream it at them over and over...

Then announce any money taken from him will be forcibly re-taken back...
Look at the adjudicator and make him know you will hold him personally resposible if any money is confiscated from your accounts.

Someone, somwhere, has to take this stand and follow through.!!
Force this farce into a real court of law, by any means available, including violence, claim provocation by (the star chamber) forced your response.!!
This nonsense has got to stop.

Posted by: William in Ajax at April 21, 2011 2:15 PM

Don't pay them.
Take it to a REAL court, and watch the judge laugh.

Posted by: eastern paul at April 21, 2011 2:19 PM

You know what galls me?

3 weeks into the election campaign and not 1 question from any reporter - left or right - about the party positions on:


Wheat Board

Property rights


Everybody - media and public included - sticking to the script. Don't know if they're lacking in imagination/curiosity, or, they're just being good little 'bedient Canadians who don't mind being told: Those aren't the issues in this election.

As if a hand had appeared and wrote "The Issues" on a wall. Pitiful.

Can only hope that Ezra gets into it with them in the remaining days.

Posted by: Jamie MacMaster at April 21, 2011 2:20 PM

So,what would happen if Earle simply refuses to pay up?

If he owns real estate,fine,they can seize it,but if he doesn't and opts to NOT pay up,what can/will they do?

I can't see them sending him to prison.

Whether the guy is an asshole or not is immaterial, he has a right to fire back at hecklers who are disrupting his act.

If I attended a comedy club, heckled a gay comedian, and was insulted in return, what are MY chances of success with the HRC's?

None and none. This whole case is a farce,another victory for the oppressors of the HRC's.

How many lesbians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Two. One to screw in the lightbulb, and the other to write a folk
song about it.


An old cowboy dressed to kill with a cowboy shirt, hat, jeans,
spurs, and chaps went to a bar and ordered a drink.

As he sat sipping his whiskey, a young lady sat down next to him.
After she ordered her drink, she turned to the cowboy and asked
him, "Are you a real cowboy?" To which he replied, "Well, I have
spent my whole life on the ranch, herding cows, breaking horses,
mending fences. I guess I am."

After a short while, he asked her what she was.
She replied, "I am a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about
women. As soon as I get up in the morning I think of women, when I
eat, shower, watch TV, everything seems to make me think of

A short while later she left and the cowboy ordered another drink.
A couple sat down next to him and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?"
To which he replied, "I always thought I was, but I just found out
that I'm a lesbian."

/adjusts collar/

Heather invited her mother over for dinner. During the meal, her
mother couldn't help noticing how beautiful Heather's roommate

She had long been suspicious of Heather's sexuality and this only
made her more curious.

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two women
interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Heather
and the roommate than met the eye. Reading her mom's thoughts,
Heather volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I
assure you, Suzy and I are just roommates."

About a week later, Suzy came to Heather and said, "Ever since
your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful
silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

Heather said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter just
to be sure." So she sat down and wrote: "Dear Mother, I'm not
saying you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my house, and I'm not
saying you 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the fact remains that
one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."

Several days later, Heather received a letter from her mother
which read: "Dear Daughter, I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep
with Suzy, and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with Suzy.
But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she
would have found the gravy ladle by now."

Earle was just on Adler and described himself as a leaning left socialist, and a Layton supporter. The left shuts down one of their own. Ha. And they still don't get it.

If Earle describes himself as a left leaning socialist then what is he complaining about? Can he honestly look at the people who have been prosecuting him and believe that they are anything but a homogeneous mass of "left leaning socialist" bureaucrats?

Posted by: max at April 21, 2011 4:15 PM

Just so you all know:

Earle never showed up at the tribunal.

His lawyer already took the question of the HRT in terms of jurisdiction etc. to the supreme court, and the HRT defied the supreme court's request.

Nobody cared about the preacher in Alberta getting fined for talking down the homosexual community. Cue Ezra...

Nobody cares about a comedian who lambastes a couple of lesbians for interrupting his act. Cue Ezra...

Yet the Charter says:

2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
(a) freedom of conscience and religion;
(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
(d) freedom of association.

Except of course when you need them...

Yep, you have a whole freakin' truckload of freedom provided you have $1,000,000 in legal fees to protect them.

But rather than fight on the road to penury, most people just do a dollars and cents analysis and throw in John Cleese's BATH towel.

One wonders whether defeating the Nazis was so necessary, when one is going to adopt their policies. How Liberal of them...

Well at least the entire proceedings have the benefit of being a CRUEL JOKE...

Amazing the way "left leaning socialists" can rationalize their own destruction. It's reminiscent of Solzhenitsyn's description of a hard core communist academic in the gulag. Solzhenitsyn compared reasoning with one of these characters to walking through a desert. Poor Earle, I sent money to his defence fund, and I do hope he's cleared eventually, but he just doesn't "get it". He's fighting to buy his way into serfdom.

You may be right that Harper won't budge on the HRC's. I'm not convinced as he has been constrained by his minority status. He has made some small moves to defund proggy groups so it would be very interesting to see what he could accomplish with a majority.

Posted by: Marko at April 21, 2011 5:58 PM

Ezra has read the whole decision, Earle hasn't yet. He was shocked when Levant told him that he, Earle, is banned for life from performing in BC (!)

He replied that he'd get on a plane and play a BC club tonight if someone would take him. Plus he doesn't have plane fare.

Hell, if he can get out there, he could just perform on the sidewalk and dare the cops to arrest him.

Earle is taking this to the Supreme Court, he says. Oh and he's not paying the fine.

As I understand it, Earle is a broke dick. He has no money, nothing nada, he is a stone that the tribunal and the fat lesbians will get nothing from.

What will happen? probably not much, but Earle's life (for what it's worth) is shattered.

Just another insane episode of the 'demented dominion'.

More laughable than Earle's comedy poutine (not a typo) his act is cheesy.

In the last 4-5 weeks, I have had the CPC call me for donations on at least a dozen occasions, likely because I've supported them in the past.

Most of the callers were surprised to learn that I will no longer contribute to the CPC until PMSH abolishes section 13(1) of the HRA, and disbands the provincial kangaroo courts and tribunals.

Some of the canvassers were interested enough in my POV to have a rational discussion about the topic, and three even took notes and promised to pass my thoughts on these fascist HRCs up the chain; I suppose the few who showed interest wanted to ascertain whether I was just a crackpot or knew what I was talking about, but those three actually came around to agreeing wholeheartedly that the HRCs should go.

Now, if more of the loyal SDA readers did exactly the same, I think we'd actually accomplish something.

Posted by: Alienated at April 21, 2011 9:11 PM

I will vote for the tories, because I won't vote for those other wackos.
But I will not contribute to the party nor will I help the local Tory incumbent.
When I mailed him about the dreadful HRC's and the Global warming Issue I got no reply to either inquiry. He'll get my vote, but only because he's the best of a cowardly lot.

Posted by: Ghost of Ed at April 21, 2011 9:37 PM

Did anyone notice that the BCHRC/T must make a decision on it's jurisdiction to even hear this case?
Guy Earle had already quashed the BCHRC/T in BC 'real' Court!

I leave you with a superior comment that helps you understand the global connect all of the HRC/T's have with non-Canadian influence.. (no, not my comment.. I'm a comment fan..)

All bureaucracies world wide now report to the UN. Maybe not in a hierarchical structure but as far as intent and "best practices". Every portfolio or department in national government has a UN department affiliated with it. This is how the EU was formed. It's called creep. First the UN is there in an "advisory" capacity, paper flows back and forth. Then the UN suggests that it would really help if the paper were in a standard format so all the forms change to an international standard. Then the UN suggests it would be helpful if you attend their twice a year meetings with delegates of other countries. A perk! International travel! The national bureaucrat swans off to London, Frankfurt or Rome to have face time with like minded international bureaucrats. While there he is wined and dined and at the end of the meeting the stakeholders decide that they should all try to achieve a certain goal. It's totally voluntary. The national bureaucrat signs up. He goes back to his little backwater and starts implementing the goal. Meanwhile the international travel continues and he starts to feel more at home with his international buddies than the people he serves. More ideas are passed along down the line, more pledges signed until a point comes when they all decide that the best way to continue is to ignore national governments. Democracy is so messy when you try to implement something.


It's everywhere... think of it this way.. was 'kettling' during the G20 necessary or just good UN practice.?
