We’re somewhat taken aback at the thin skin of some of our comedy colleagues.
Comic after comic (on both sides of the border) effortlessly heaped insult after insult on Guy Earle. And questioned his credentials. And called him the worst thing you could call a comedian– “unfunny.”
For those same comics to take umbrage at the relatively mild criticism we offered (which was, we point out, not focused on their relative talents but on their lack of critical thinking and commentary on the issue of free speech) is breathtaking. (…)
Throughout the past three years of this trainwreck, reading comprehension on the part of some of the commenters has been dismal. (One reader even thought that we flew to Vancouver to cover the Tribunal!)
We’re shutting the debate down for now– at least on this site.
