Sandra Bernhard, the outspoken (and often unfunny) comedian has launched a new one-woman show called “Without You I’m Nothing”. Here's a snippet of a review of her performance in the Washington Examiner by a writer named Barbara Mackay:
In Sandra Bernhard’s new show, “Without You I’m Nothing” at Theater J, she kvetches continually, whether she’s sneering at vacuous celebrity-speak from a fashion magazine, mocking mediocre singers or voicing contempt for Sarah Palin.
But in the end, oddly and subtly, Bernhard’s message is positive.
Interesting, because Ms. Mackay fails to mention that this is part of her show:
Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers.
Update: Michelle Malkin has further details. Here in Canada we have "human rights" commissions that monitor supposed hate speech, though everyone knows that said speech must come from a so-called conservative or it's ignored. So Bernhard would be found innocent by their standards.
However, in this case it could be argued that she is inciting violence against a specific person, namely Sarah Palin. In such a case, she could be prosecuted in a real court under Canada's federal hate speech legislation. Ezra Levant is on vacation right now but it would be most interesting to get his opinion on this when he returns!
