Default Canada bans Dire Straits Classic

Everybody knows the song from Dire Straits, Money for Nothing.

Well the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has ruled that the song," Money for Nothing" is too offensive for Canadain listeners.

The word "faggot" is said three times in the song and is extremely offensive to the gay, lesbian and transgender community.

I'm sure the FCC in Washington perked up when thet heard this.
It's coming to America.

Free Speech will be replaced with a gag order not to speak out against anybody for anything, weather it be hate speach against gay, or saying something against a politician.

Our freedoms are being slowing taken away. Just like a frog in a pot of water.

They already have an edited version. I started hearing the unedited version a few years ago and was surprised that they played it over the air.

people bitched about 'money for nothing' when it came out in 1985... Way to be on it, Canada, saving your citizens from that uber contemporary modern music.

I find that song offensive just because it's Dire Straits.

I bet Canada won't play this song:


Oooohhh......
if you're a faggot and you know it
Suck my dick
if you're a faggot and you know it
suck my dick
if you're a faggot and you know it
here's my penis
you can blow it
if you're a faggot and you know it
suck my dick
