Default Canada Has Officially Become a Nanny State

We all know the song “Money For Nothing” a classic-rock radio gem by Dire Straits. Well, you may not hear that song on Canadian airways anymore! “Money For Nothing has been deemed unacceptable for play on Canadian radio.

After a single complaint submitted to a St. John's NFLD radio station, CHOZ-FM, because of a Feb. 1, 2010 airing of an unedited version of the song.

Offending Lyrics from Money for Nothing, by Dire Straits:

"The little faggot with the earring and the makeup"

"Yeah, buddy, that's his own hair"

"That little faggot's got his own jet airplane"

"That little faggot, he's a millionaire"

In a ruling released Wednesday, the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council says the song contravenes the human rights clauses of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics and Equitable Portrayal Code.

followed by the new chorus.....

"Got to install censoring buttons
Got them bitchin' in misery
we don't approve those ignoramus
we don't approve those trying to speak free..........."
