Comedian forced to pay $15k for "anti-gay" jokes to lesbian comedy club-goer
This is just fucking disgusting. Apparenlty the gay agenda has been stepped up so much that it is now legally above criticism or jokes in Canada.

"In a ruling that could carry implications for comedy clubs across Canada, the Supreme Court of British Columbia has upheld the right of a bar patron to receive five-figures in damages from a comedian whose performance she alleges gave her post-traumatic stress disorder.

In 2011, Toronto comedian Guy Earle was ordered by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal to pay $15,000 to Lorna Pardy, a homosexual woman who said she suffered “lasting physical and psychological effect” after Mr. Earle directed a string of lesbian slurs at her during a 2007 Vancouver open mic night."


So now if you are an asshole heckler and disruptive to someone's stand up act, and then get made fun of, you can sue the comedian for $15 grand and claim PTSD? FUCK. THAT.

Good. I've seen alleged stand up "comics" basicly pick out people in the audience and humiliate them in public. No jokes. No routine. Just "You fat f-ing b#$%$%[email protected]#$$#@ %#$##" until they get up and leave in tears. Stand Up Comics are some of the biggest losers humanity has to deal with. I just wish this case was inside the U.S. so the lawsuits could start flying.

Guess Lisa Campenelli won't be performing there. It's a comedians job to make fun of everything and everyone. Way too much PC going on.

I don't have to worry about Political Correctness for I refuse to play along with that bullshit in the first place. I see no reason or reasons to twist myself and tear myself apart to appear nice, or whatever false bullshit. I'm proud and very much glad with my What You See, You Get attitude both online and in real life. Let the people who want to worry about Political Correctness twist themselves and like minded individuals... or should I say people of their Horde/Herd get together and strain themselves to achieve meaningless things and activities together.
Conspiracy Theorist is nothing more than a derogatory title used to dismiss a critical thinker.

A time is coming when men will go mad,
and when they see someone who is not mad,
they will attack him, saying,
'You are mad; you are not like us."

Political correctness is censorship. The ADL founded 1913, has contributed, if not entirely set the stage for repression and suppression of western society...the boiling frog.
