B.C. theatre shames straight white males in the name of “justice” (Guest host David Menzies)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

(David Menzies guest hosts for Ezra Levant, who returns on Monday...) Organizers of a comedy film series being screened at the Roxy Theatre in Victoria, British Columbia have implemented a ticket-pricing system based on race and gender. 

If you are a white male heterosexual, you will be charged double for your ticket, $20 instead of only $10.

They call this “justice pricing.”

However, in light of a backlash over this race-based ticket pricing, festival spokesman Sid Mohammed says they’ve made a concession:

White males will now only have to pay $15 for a ticket – in other words, white straight males will only incur a 50 per cent penalty as opposed to a 100 percent penalty. Gee, thanks, Sid!

So, the question arises: How does a frugal male honky catch a break at the box office? Well, my solution is this:

Use the policies of the loony left to defeat their own kooky social engineering mandates:

If you are a white male who plans to purchase a ticket at the Roxy, simply declare that you’re a “gender-fluid, non-binary, Afro-centric spirit unicorn”!

NEXT: Columnist Maddie Di Muccio joins me to talk about why this discriminatory policy has nothing to do with "justice." We discuss how these sorts of measures, funny as they sound, are actually a threat to our culture. 

THEN: The Rebel's Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid has the very latest on "Barbie-gate" and the Liberals' hypocritical selective "outrage."

FINALLY: I read your messages to me!

I think the Rebel should sell T-shirts featuring the slogan “Climate Barbie relies on fabricated computer models to steal more tax dollars.” Her “carbon footprint” is astronomical!

I’d favor one that had a picture of her expressing her hollow-headed, plastic, bimbosity, with the caption:

Suck it up blondie. Pfft.

Why don’t a whack of CIS gendered, straight white privileged males, converge on this sexist, racist, discriminatory movie theater and picket the joint and shut it down – kind of like the left does except with a legitimate reason and no violence!
If you don’t want to be bothered by the police and the lying Fake News Media, I suggest going disguised as a BLM thug, an antifa thug, a radical feminist thug – wait, that one might not go over very well – or wearing any Moslem terrorist type outfit…leave the explosive vests and knives at home though.
I wonder how the lying Fake News Media would handle that?
But someone should definitely start a claim at the so-called BC Human Rights tribunal – if you act now you could be one of the very first cases of the HRT the NDP are reestablishing in BC after a 15 year hiatus…oh wait, all those so-called HRT’s only ever target straight white and Christian males…

I enjoyed Rex Murphy’s not so subtle dig at Barbie:

“They deliberately, knowingly, associate their opponents with Holocaust denialism, without so much as an arched eyebrow of rebuke from the censors of political correctness. This stands in contrast to the stern policing from the commentariat when it comes to instances of “sexist” rhetoric. If we’re going to have standards on “correct” rhetoric, let’s have standards for all of it. No deniers, no Barbies.”

I always enjoy Murphy. Probably the last true Liberal-Democrat pundit in the MSM.

Sorry – a little early morning finger problems on my last line of my previous post. You get my point.

Also amazed at this hypocrisy from Trudeau and his band of sycophants: How many Canadians voted for Trudeau because of his so-called sexy good looks (excuse me – I am about to barf!), which he, of course, nauseatingly promotes, through his Vogue magazine cover photo and bare-chested and smiley photo ops? And the swooning from female reporters that reportedly took place when he visited countries overseas after the election!
In my opinion Trudeau is the one who is guilty of the most sexual exploitation of anyone – he consciously and unashamedly, with his seductive and slimy manner (about to barf for the second time in 10 minutes), appeals to the sexual naivete and immaturity of his female audiences to garner support (just check out voting practices of young and middle aged women in the last election and why they voted for him!!)! And don’t kid yourselves – he knows exactly what he is doing!
Are Canadians really that stupid to not see through this fool? I am a proud Canadian, but sometimes many of my fellow Canucks truly disappoint me, my fellow Rebel supporters excepted:)!

UP your ass SID.

I never cease to be amazed at the lunacy of the left. Here they have Trudeau commending the Muslims in the mosque for their segregation of women and men and then calling himself at every opportunity a “feminist” (sorry, but having to repeat ad infinitum that I am “honest” does not make me honest, and in fact likely is an indicator that I am not and am trying to cover up some dishonesty).
Then he and his ministers think nothing of accusing others of sexism, while his own ministers (Calgary – Kang) actually are sexist and it is brushed under the rug. Then Mackenna speaks about the sexism and misogyny coming from the “Conservatives”.
I would really like to see someone with some backbone in the Conservative Party actually take on these idiots, both in Parliament, and, more forcefully, in the press. I receive requests for donations from the CPC every few days, but I – earn m have written back and told them that I will donate when I see some action! I work for my money – they need to work for theirs!

If the media has veto power over our elected officials why do we even bother with a parliament? Let’s just declare the media the Commitee of Public Safety, bring on their prosecutorial Robespierre and let the heads roll.

“Climate Barbie” is far too kind….I call her Climate Bimbo.

How is this extreme racism even tolerated in Canada in 2017 ??? The racists behind this should be charged with a hate crime offence. The perpetrator behind this racist offence is called Mohammad ….what a shocker that is ! …. Imagine how unfunny their PC comedy show will be ….let me guess more “Trump jokes” … daring and brave. My guess is , this disgusting racist stunt is just a publicity grab and they know there is no risk because they are demonizing White males.

In my business, can I charge a special surcharge to those who voted Liberal or NDP? Just asking.

Race / Gender based pricing is disgusting. If I thought Human rights councils weren’t Kangaroo courts with no authority I would consider filing a grievance. But I do, so I won’t. My wife makes 20k a year more than I do and I have 5000 bucks in retirement savings. Don’t you dare call me privileged because of my skin color.

Better tear the place down , i bet it was built by awful white men.

Where did this Camel Thumper get the money to own a Theater, Justin’s Handouts for poor under privileged Muslims?

IF the organizers of this film festival at the Roxy Theatre in Victoria were looking for an attention-getting event to increase public sensitivity to previous or current unfair discrimination in society, I can understand what their motives were. However, unfortunately, it would seem that the strategy they chose was not to recommend or promote a solution to unacceptable discrimination practices in society.
Instead they chose and implemented a childish, immature, ill-thought-out “White Male Revenge” strategy. I think this eliminates any credibility the organizers may have had.
And unfortunately, Trudeau’s recent virtue-seeking presentation to the U.N. highlighting his belief about how horrible Canada has historically been regarding discrimination, will only inflame this ignorant behavior the Roxy demonstrates; to punish and not to resolve.

For almost two years I have been wondering, what exactly was the process used by General Secretary Butts to decide who among the Liberal caucus would be promoted to Cabinet positions.
Still haven’t figured that out but if I have to guess I would suggest that they did an IQ test on everybody and the lowest scores won.

There is an easier way around the pricing. Just say you are Muslim.
commented 2017-09-22 21:19:40 -0400
I meant to finish my sentance…so don’t give them any!
commented 2017-09-22 21:18:52 -0400
A human rights charge needs to be laid against the racist BC theatre. I hope their show flops. The only thing we have is our cold hard cash, so don’t give them.

David Menzies, thanks for exposing the strange fees & ideology at the Roxy Theatre.
Discriminatory business practices have no place in Canada; calling it “justice pricing” is another lie to add to the heap!
Heterosexual white men, just put some lipstick on and claim you are transgender; beat them at their own scam! Don’t bother shaving!

SGR – Your moniker suits Katherine McKenna perfectly, and, like the Barbie doll, she has a hollow head! All this minister has to do is look within her own party to shine a light on sexism; additionally, she can question the unyielding support for an ideology which subjugates women from the cradle to the grave, and treats them as sub-human.

Why would a self respecting person even go to this congress of pervs?

A good two nights Mr. Menzies.

To be honest, the Victoria festival can charge quintuple the price for cis-males. I avoid that boring type of stuff anyway. So 5×0=0 which is what leftist nonsense is worth. I also note the name of the promulgator of this brilliant idea is Mohammed…go figure.
commented 2017-09-22 20:46:53 -0400
- So when this theater goes broke are they going to blame cis white males for it? (Few people want to be around SJWs, even other SJWs.) These fools are just not cut out for business & it shows.

- Maddie Di Muccio is correct when she talks about the coming backlash. You can’t hide the insanity of the left. They are showing their true colours. Conservatism is the new counterculture. White privilege consists of not being able to play the victim & having to be responsible for your own actions.

- I can think of far worse things to call our Minister of Climate Idiocy. I fully expected the mainstream media to jump on this as an opportunity to deflect from Liberal scandals. I also expected the Conservative Party to show new levels of weakness over this. This is what makes me the most angry. Who do they think they represent? Disgusting.

- Great job as usual Menzie. Looking forward to the new & improved Rebel come Monday – excited to see the new talent.

So, should North Asian males who aren’t oppressed, have higher IQ’s than most of us, and make more money than most of us, pay $20.00?
