The Corner

Who was that lady I saw you with last night?

The Canadian “human rights” commissars: First, they came for Steyn. Then they came for, er, Bar Le Stud? A Montreal gay bar has copped a plea on a “human rights” complaint:

Bar Le Stud and Audrey Vachon, the 21-year-old woman who launched the complaint, agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential, Canadian Press reported Tuesday.

Quebec’s human rights commission says businesses have the right to attract a particular clientele but not to discriminate by excluding other customers.

Vachon sat down at the bar with her father for an afternoon beer a year ago when staff told them women were not allowed in the establishment.

Gays have used the “human rights” courts very successfully to stick it to Christian groups, without ever thinking the same courts might be used against them. Likewise with other fashionable identity groups. As Ezra Levant puts it:

They think they’ll always be riding the back of the tiger, not being mauled by it.

Er, actually, I think that’s Jungle Night at Bar Le S&M next door.

He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More

The Beatification of Beto

The media’s treatment of Texas Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke wasn’t the most egregiously unfair coverage of the past year -- that would be the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh -- but it ranks among 2018’s most annoying. The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
