Kangaroo Court Grants Cash Reward to Militant Homosexuals for Alleged Name-Calling

Posted by Dave Blount at January 17, 2011 11:19 AM

Until recently, Canada was considered part of the free world. But then political correctness got completely out of control:

The Quebec Human Rights Tribunal has ordered a Montreal man to pay his gay neighbours $12,000 for allegedly subjecting them to "homophobic comments," death threats and invitations to fight, even though he was acquitted of the charges in a court of law nearly five years ago.
The tribunal ruled that Gordon Lusk, a married father of two, must pay the "moral and punitive" damages after his neighbours, Theo Wouters and Roger Thibault, accused him of addressing them as "faggots" during a June 2006, altercation.

Only George Orwell could have foreseen farcical "human rights" tribunals being used to grind the last of our fundamental liberties under the loafers of bureaucrats on behalf of powerful political factions like perpetually offended homosexuals.

The case against Mr. Lusk, a retired lieutenant colonel of the Canadian Forces, stems from an April 2004, incident in which Mr. Thibault is alleged to have driven recklessly down their street in the Montreal suburb of Pointe Claire while neighbourhood children, including Mr. Lusk's son, were playing road hockey.
A witness testified that Mr. Thibault had run a stop sign and driven at high speed toward one of the kids, nearly hitting the child.

Lieutenant colonels and their children don't count for much from the point of view of the liberal ruling class. Militant perverts count for so much that a mere accusation of name-calling is a "human rights" violation.

The homosexual neighbors have squealed "oppression" before:

[I]n 2001, they began complaining of harassment from a neighbour, Bob Walker, resulting in criminal charges and a 4,000-person anti-homophobia march through their neighbourhood. Mr. Walker was acquitted a year and a half later after the judge in the case encountered difficulty with the credibility of the two men. Six years later, the couple signed a letter of apology to Mr. Walker in which they stated all the complaints made against him were "baseless."

But another time, they raked in $10,000 over some mild pranks. Needless to say, they are "very happy" with the latest insane ruling.

They won't be so happy when continued abuse of perverts' privileged status inevitably leads to a backlash. Calling people "homophobes" might not always cause them to cringe in terror.

When will enough finally be enough?
