On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we reviewed a precedent-setting judgment on the 'right to offend' in the United Kingdom.
The case centred on mother-of-two Kate Scottow's comments that a transgender activist named Stephanie Hayden is a “pig in a wig” and a man.
Here's a bit of what Ezra had to say about the allegedly offensive insults:
“Now, a pig in a wig is rude, for sure, and offensive, sure, and some would find it funny, and some would find it fair. But it’s just a schoolyard insult. Calling someone a pig — on the hierarchy of insults, I’m going to give that maybe a three out of ten. Calling people a pig — it means you’re fat, really.
“We use animal insults — calling someone a dog, or a rat. I suppose they are technically dehumanizing — I don’t like it when people are called a louse, usually — but calling someone a pig isn’t a devastation. Remember, this is the UK. They practically invented swearing, and they invent new swears all the time.”
This is just a clip from the full Ezra Levant Show.
