Censored: Dire Straits' 'The Little Faggot with the Earing and the Makeup'

Daily News @ http://RevolutionNews.US - TORONTO - Canada's broadcast standards council has ruled that Dire Straits' 1985 hit Money for Nothing should be censored because of a homosexual slur in its lyrics. The council said the British band's use of a slur referring to gay people three times in the song breaches the national broadcasters' code of ethics. The council said an edited version of the song could be played. Helen Kennedy, executive director of Egale Canada, an organisation that promotes equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-identified people, said on Thursday the decision is the right move given a number of teenage suicides that took place in the US last year after they were subjected to homophobic bullying. "It perpetuates the stereotype, it's negative and it's offensive. If you look to the origin of the word, it's disgusting," said Kennedy. The council said it realised Dire Straits used the word sarcastically when the best-selling Brothers in Arms album was released in 1985, but said it was inappropriate. The decision was made after a radio listener complained about the song last year. The station would not comment on the decision Thursday. Money for Nothing was a massive hit upon its release in 1985. It won a Grammy, reached No. 1 on the charts in Canada and the US and spawned a famous music video that featured crude computer animation and became interwoven with the popularity of the then-fledgling music network MTV. Dire Straits dissolved as a band in the 1990s after a string of hit albums. - AP Dire Straits censored over gay homosexual fag slur -- "If freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." —George Washington Time For A New American Revolution?

Its a converted LHD R34 and was shot in a Philippine highway called the NLEX, their version of the Wangan in Japan and the Autobahn in Germany. 2. This was a 0 to 320kph run.
