Canada condemns Conan

February 14, 2004

Our neighbors to the north are really on a roll. At least their government is. But we all know you’re held accountable for the B.S. your government pulls, so Canada: what’s your fucking problem?

We just wanted to share with you the gift that is Conan…and you spit in our faces? Well, that won’t be happening again, Canada. Sure won’t. You’ve lived hundreds of years with the French in your country and you still haven’t come to realize the truth: the French were put on this earth to be made fun of. That’s their reason for being here. The French were MADE to be beaten. So come on, Canada. Laugh with everybody else.

Canada Condemns ‘Racist’ Conan O’Brien TV Show

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s government on Friday condemned a show by U.S. late-night television host Conan O’Brien that insulted people in French-speaking Quebec and seemed to suggest everyone in the province was homosexual.

Ottawa and the province of Ontario paid $760,000 to help O’Brien — who appears on the NBC television network — bring his show to Toronto for a week to boost the city’s profile after a deadly SARS outbreak last year.

“We want to disassociate ourselves from the comments which were broadcast last night because we do not support them in any way,” junior government minister Mauril Belanger told Parliament.

At one point in the show, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog — a hand puppet that is a regular on the show — said to a Quebecer: “You’re French, you’re obnoxious and you no speekay English.” It told another: “I can smell your crotch from here.”

O’Brien’s team were also shown replacing street signs in the province with those that read “Quebecqueer Street” and “Rue des Pussies.”
