Remember when human rights were about concepts like freedom and liberty, before the business of human rights became a racket? Now it’s a rigged deck with unelected, unaccountable social justice warrior bureaucrats holding all the cards.
The kangaroo court jesters have enshrined fake human rights as genuine human rights and we’ve become a nation of whiners where whiners increasingly get rewarded.
The latest character in the “Woe is me” sweepstakes is Sacha DeWolfe of Fredericton, New Brunswick who is calling for changes to the province's Human Rights Act because she says a spa discriminated against her.
Not due to her skin colour, religion or sexual orientation mind you. She wanted to bring her five-month old baby to a scheduled appointment at the Avalon Salon Spa and they said no -- first due to safety concerns and secondly, out of consideration for other patrons.
But she’s one of those self-entitled people who believe the rules don’t apply to her, the latest contestant in that ongoing Canadian shame show, “Who Wants To Be a Martyr?”
People love babies but there’s a time and place for everything. Taking Junior to McD’s is one thing, but taking an infant to a five-star restaurant? That’s a problem and the solution is: get a babysitter for a few hours.
New Brunswick is the only province where family status isn’t a grounds of discrimination under the Human Rights Act. In the aftermath of Sacha’s rants on the violation of her non-existent rights, a lawyer for the commission says family status human rights are being considered for the Act’s next update. Great! Keep those meddling bureaucrats busy, Sacha!
It’s not “reasonable accommodation” anymore but “unreasonable alteration.” The neuroses of the few outweigh the rights of the many.
So, I’m campaigning for a brand-new “human right”: the right to be free of the tyranny of human rights commissions. Oh, if only...
