- Gillard’s attack on free speech alarms even human rights commissars–where’s the evidence there is even a problem that needs fixing by this censorious government?
Speech Comissar Roxon: ” there has been a “vicious” campaign aimed at rolling back existing protections”.
I don’t want to be “protected” by Roxon and her ilk. I want to see her deep-sixed along with the totalitarians who seek to destroy us.
LEGAL experts have questioned whether Labor’s draft anti-discrimination laws are constitutional, arguing the expansion of federal powers is a step too far into community life that will ensnare students, parents, employees and even sports spectators.
As the Senate inquiry into the bill prepares to hold its first hearings this week, constitutional law professors Nicholas Aroney of the University of Queensland and Patrick Parkinson of the University of Sydney say it could also fall foul of our international obligations and may lead to successful court challenges.
The Greens yesterday joined the chorus of concerns over the proposed legislation, which will make it unlawful to offend or insult others.
The Salvation Army says it would rather use resources to help the needy than defend claims against people who say they’ve been insulted.
The Senate inquiry has received more than 580 submissions from business, unions and state governments over the move to consolidate five anti-discrimination laws into one act to meet a 2010 election promise.
In the thirties and the forties freedom faced a mighty test
Now another tide of fascism is rising on the West;
Will we fight as did our fathers, will we brace and do our bit,
Will we struggle for our freedom or surrender and submit?
Will we tolerate the violence and the hatred so obscene
Of the Islamists and Left in their alliances of green?
Will we follow or denounce our intellectual elite
As they spit upon our culture while they work for its defeat?
Will we listen to our media who tell us what to think
As they white-wash every filthy lie and perfume every stink?
Yes, the day is fast approaching when we’ll have to make a stand
If we want to keep our freedom in our ancient southern land.
From a poet on Bolt’s blog (Tadpole)
AG Roxon, ministers Albanese, Burke, Bowen and Shorten along with Gillard hold seats with growing Muslim populations. But they wouldn’t be pandering, or would they?
