Canada’s unequal human rights laws: Lesbian jokes? Bad. “Kill the Christian” lyrics? No problem

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator
 

Did you know that human rights laws are not equal for everyone in Canada? 

Through conversations with Derek From of the Canadian Constitution Foundation, a group that fights for our freedoms, I often hear about backwards laws and red tape that infringe on our constitutional rights.

Watch as I compare and contrast a couple of human rights cases that demonstrate the unequal treatment complainants can receive solely based on who’s doing the complaining.

In one instance a lesbian heckled by a comedian won when she took her case to the BC Human Rights Tribunal and he was made to pay $15,000 for hurting her “dignity, feelings and self-respect”.

But in another instance, a white, Christian male who filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission against death metal band, “Deicide”, for lyrics that included incitement to violence, like “kill the Christian”, had his case dismissed.

Expression shouldn’t ever be punished in the name of free speech but more and more we see liberty eroding in this country and that some human rights are more equal than others.

Mickey Mann sez: “Oh wait – let me guess, you are one of those conservatives that pretends to be Libertarian, but still votes for everything conservative. Almost like a Rand Paul.”

**He heh, there’s Mickey’s “I Guess” about everything mentality – Mickey has to guess at life because his knowledge and experience are too narrow to actually know with any certainty – you need to get out of Mom’s basement more, meet a girl, maybe read a book or two.

No, I subscribe to no Libertarian party and Rand Paul is a populist conservative republican in a jurisdiction which I cannot vote – AFAIC, voting and modern democracy are just theater for the rubes to make them believe political systems care about their interests. – again your suppositions and invalidated “beliefs” make you cuck-prone. It is also the reason you must stereotype every one and every thing, because this is what untrained minds with limited cognition must do to make sense of larger more complex concepts and systems. I defy your stereotypes Mickey and you can’t conveniently pigeon-hole me like your social engineering indoctrinators would like.

Mickey Mann further exhibits his mental putrefaction with this verbal flatulence:
“I think you need your look at your posting history here. You might as well be sucking on Ezra’s balls. So even if you choose to not describe yourself as a conservative or right wing – anyone would make the assumption that you are simply by the things you say.”
  • Well it seems you are deficient in cognitive literacy as well as prone to prevaricating about your research abilities, because if you HAD looked at my bulk of postings you’d see I disagree with Ezra more than I agree – you see that’s the benefit of being an independent thinker – something partisan zombies such as yourself have no concept of – you are a herd animal Mann – you regurgitate prescribed narratives and have no original thought and you think everyone else is as intellectually lethargic as you.


Then Mickey Mann begs to have his nascent narratives go unchallenged: “If I bore you so much, hopefully you have the brain capacity to simply ignore me.”
  • Heh, pretty funny seeing a Neanderthal talk about “brain capacity” something creepy about that. I’d like to ignore you Mickey, but it’s hard to ignore the stench such concentrated idiocy puts off. I see logic, reason and truth as an air freshener that combats the stench of partisan zombie decay. I’ll be around to spray you down every time you defecate though your keyboard.

To the ignoramus MICHAEL MANN. I believe you will find that Atheism is also considered a religion. Where do you fall? Obviously nowhere. Probably no reason for you to even grace the earth. Go off yourself you fucking retard.

Oh for Lord’s sake Mann, gay/lesbian people are not born that way. They CHOOSE their lifestyle. Science can twist and spout that there is some secret gene that makes them that way, but all of us who have a lick of common sense and wisdom know God does not make mistakes in his creation of man and woman. Does not our anatomy give you a fucking clue? Look at the slippery slope you fool, now we’ve got men wanting their balls cut off, women wanting a set of balls, men who think they are six-year-old little girls with pigtails, women growing beards, and men and women sleeping in adult size cribs, wearing diapers, sucking soothers and being fed like infants. Not to mention, leftist-mania government, medical procedures and stores catering are enabling mental dysfunction while calling it good and morally sane. You’re an asshole, go away!

I got banned from the Calgary Pop Culture Expo because of Christian affiliations. They told me that was why. So, yes, I do know that human rights are subjective in Canada.

When the woman threw the water in the comedian’s face it was assault. He should have pressed charges, and perhaps sue for emotional trauma and mental anguish. After all, the assault has caused him fear of performing his act before a crowd. Hmmm… Human Rights complaint?

Does the rebel need to start collecting funds, should one of its contributors get hauled off to the human rights commission again?

A Lesbian walks into a bar, well that would explain the mug on Kathleen Wynne.

Michael Mann you talk about human rights , but you are a Sanders supporter?? Heavy socialism is an enemy of human rights, especially when it is like communism.
commented 2016-08-02 01:37:03 -0400
Michael Mann ,prove they are born that way. And why do human rights not count for unborn babies? Free expression is a human right. Being gay does not trump everything.
commented 2016-08-02 01:34:59 -0400
Michael Mann no right should blank out another moron. And sorry but telling a joke is not denying anyone their human right to be gay idiot. Calling for the murder of someone is fine, but offending someone is a crime? You truly are a loser. Now go be a good commie. And us conservatives do not need you left wing losers, you need us though. LMAO!

If a lesbian couple and a gay couple check into a motel about the same time one evening, which couple left the motel first in the morning?
The gay couple did – they had their shit packed the night before.

Perhaps if more Christians took action and spoke up.
They won’t get the message but they’ll know we don’t wear the t-shirt that reads: ‘wipe feet here’.
commented 2016-08-01 22:33:51 -0400
Let me stress that I don’t approve of either decision, but I am simply making the point that human rights are always going to supersede religious rights.

Government and the law are going to view faith as something that you just keep at home or in church.

That’s why cases involving gay people who were born that way – are winning court cases and faith – which is something that is taught/learned – lose court cases.

The HRC should be dissolved as it has become political and not litigious. Human rights needs a stable base in Canada and not some fluid organization that wanes as public opinion becomes twisted by political manipulations.

Bill,

Oh wait – let me guess, you are one of those conservatives that pretends to be Libertarian, but still votes for everything conservative. Almost like a Rand Paul.

Mickey – even as a troll you are a failure – You’re unoriginal, uninteresting and you’re boring me.

You make me sooooo sleeepy
commented 2016-08-01 21:16:58 -0400
Mickey -
A) I’m not conservative, learn some political theory, your stereotyping is embarrassingly infantile/naïve
B)You are the only one of the two of us who has constantly displayed evidence of a retarded intellect the simplistic drivel you have posted here is ample evidence
C) this is not counter argument it’s gratuitous insult based in your own petty bigotry.

AS I suspected , You are either a juvenile troll or a developmentally impaired adult with anger issues.
commented 2016-08-01 21:11:54 -0400
Bill,

Sure I have, but the whole point The Rebel’s existence and the people who post here – is to essentially bash any liberal or opposing point of view and that is what happens.

That is The Rebel’s bread and butter and that is why conservatives here have been brainwashed by fear mongering, hyperbole and propaganda.

If one is going to happily say moronic or ignorant things, they deserve the colorful emphasis of words like cunt, especially if I am going to be called a commie homo.
commented 2016-08-01 21:01:02 -0400
Mickey you have never expounded a logically constructed “opposite view” – all I see are tired political narratives regurgitated and the only counter point you extend is libelous slander and name calling. Where’s the “viewpoint” in that – just mindlessly repeating some tired and largely disproven narratives?

perhaps people would give you some space if you didn’t call them “cunts” without any basis in fact or reasoned argument.
commented 2016-08-01 20:54:53 -0400
Mickey you lie to yourself every time you post.
commented 2016-08-01 20:53:54 -0400
Bill,

Except I haven’t lied about anything. The reality is that you just have a huge problem with opposing views.
commented 2016-08-01 20:49:33 -0400
Mickey I have cllege level education in logic and philosophy so we are old friends – I’m allergic to irrational rhetoric, illogical narratives, unreasoning idealism, hypocrisy and pretense – which is why virtually ALL politicians receive my scorn and why, I feel there is no political solution to human stupidity – politics actually attracts and propagates stupidity and partisan politics makes stupidity an art form.

But above all these human foibles I detest liars the most – which, as you see, is the reason I treat you and your posing and your fallacious narratives with deserved contempt.

Paul_ I suspect Mickey is a pubescent troll or a simple-minded adult living with parents – he exudes theories we all went though when we were 10-15 in the rebellion phase and said anything we thought would anger our parents or adults in general. So Mickey has never grown out of that phase, he hasn’t reached either mental or spiritual maturity yet – says a lot for socialism and its utopian appeal to immature minds.

Michelle Woeperson:
Jesus used physical force land violence against not that which he simply didn’t like, but that which was evil. The money changers in the temple.
I advocate violent force against evil. The so-called Human Rights Commissions in Canada are evil. They are biased and draconian.
It is not simply a matter of something one does not like.
If you saw an woman killing her innocent children, would you not perform strong (even violent) action against her to prevent it?
I have read the Bible and studied it in great length, Michelle. I doubt that you have.
Jesus was not a socialist. He did not believe in taking wealth from others and giving it to the needy through government intervention. He believed in individuals feeding the poor and clothing the naked and giving shelter to the homeless out of compassion.
There is a big difference between Marxism and Christianity, Michelle.
If you would study both Marxist writings and the Gospels of Jesus Christ you would see and understand this.
But you tend to be glib and simple minded.
You make a sweeping assumption that I have not read the Bible, for instance. How wrong you are. I have also read Das Kapital and the Communist Manifesto and much Marxist literature too. And much more besides.
What have you read, Michelle Woeperson?

Mickey sez: t Jesus would be deemed a socialist by our standards if he were to come back. He would be voting for Bernie Sanders."

Jesun believed in charity which is freely given – socialism is theft by state under coercion – If JC came back he’d still be a Christian because he didn’t think the state had any business in the spiritual realm – which is what freely given human charity is – spiritual.

Mann, a hole, I don’t give a crap what you say or think, or that you don’t like Christianity or islam, so you say. The government is imposing sharia law on us by making islam above all other religions and the only one that nobody can criticize. You’re a liberal Islamic commie homo and a mental patient.
commented 2016-08-01 19:49:18 -0400
Mickey – learn to reason and stop wearing your hatred on your sleeve or people will confuse you for just another low brow hater – like religious zealots.
