I mean, aside from words like “dick”, “ass” and “cunt”, all of which one might apply to “Judge” Geiger-Adams. That word is sham.
As with any show trial in any nickel-and-dime banana-republic presidency-for-life, the outward forms of “justice” are deployed for a precise inversion of it. That’s wretched enough when it happens in North Korea or the Soviet Union. When a jurisdiction that’s heir to one of the oldest sustained legal inheritances on the planet decides to dump due process, it’s even more shameful.
What’s wrong with Geiger-Adams’ court? You notice that I appear above to have called him a “dick”, “ass” and “cunt”. So what? I’m a dead white male, he’s a dead white male. I could say everything Guy Earle is alleged to have said to Ms Pardy – including the bit about the strap-on – and “Judge” Geiger-Adams would have to take it. No “human rights” law is infringed if I launch a blizzard of four-letter words at a fucking dickhead asshole cunt like Geiger-Adams. But, if Ms Pardy is around, the vulgar, witless boorishness that is the stock in trade of the average “comedy” club gets dramatically upgraded to “discrimination in the provision of a service customarily available to the public, on the basis of her sex and sexual orientation” – in other words, a hate crime.
The great strength of Common Law is its antipathy to “collective rights” – because the ultimate minority is the individual. If you elevate group rights over individual liberty, you’re mainly empowering not “minorities” but the state, which becomes the sole legitimate arbiter of relations between various groups.
And empowering the state means empowering the likes of Commissar Geiger-Adams to preside over four-year investigations into the precise degree of smooching between two patrons of a late-night comedy club. That’s why group rights are “the key Nanny State concept”.
What we are witnessing, from the comedy clubs of Vancouver to the groves of academe in Connecticut, is not just the collapse of liberty but the death of the human spirit.
There is something deeply sick about the willingness of freeborn citizens to submit to statist enforcers like Geiger-Adams.
I quickly grew weary of the standard template: obviously Mark Steyn is alarmist/offensive/obnoxious/Islamophobic/racist but (sigh) nevertheless…
But good grief, the jellyspined squishes of the press were rock-ribbed compared to all those “brave” “transgressive” comics Guy Earle has spent his life palling around with.
“What did I ever do to Canada?” wails Guy Earle.
Au contraire, this is the Canada that arose with the full support of the edgy transgressives — a Canada where the state polices your jokes, and the court eunuchs are entirely cool with it.
