Q: what do you call a Government official who is trying to take away your rights?

A:  a Human Rights Commissioner.

Another question: what do you call a Government official who is trying to take away your freedoms?

Answer: A Freedom Commissioner. We have both.

Triggs

It’s too late for three QUT students and many others, but Gillian Triggs might be slowly backing down.

She’s now prepared to concede ground on insignificant disputes:

Australian Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs is willing to work with Coalition MPs on a bill allowing her to more easily terminate “frivolous” complaints under the Racial Discrimination Act.

It’s too late for three QUT students and many others, but Gillian Triggs might be slowly backing down.

She’s now prepared to concede ground on insignificant disputes:

Australian Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs is willing to work with Coalition MPs on a bill allowing her to more easily terminate “frivolous” complaints under the Racial Discrimination Act.

Government MPs have criticised the commission’s long complaints handling process, which requires all claims to be investigated before they can be thrown out as trivial, vexatious, misconceived or lacking in substance.

Professor Triggs yesterday ­acknowledged concerns about ­delays in processing complaints and said she would be “very happy” to consult on new legislation that might help her “nip in the bud” futile complaints.

This should be easy. For a start, any complaint regarding an issue that has been mentioned more than 50 times on Twitter should be automatically dismissed.

UPDATE. Janet Albrechtsen:

At a protest in Sydney’s Hyde Park in 2012, a 14-year-old boy carried a sign that said “Behead all those who insult the Prophet”.

That same boy is alleged by police to have been on the verge of a ghastly act of terrorism last Wednesday. Together with a 16-year-old boy, he was arrested last week outside an Islamic prayer centre in Bankstown, in Sydney’s southwest.

Last week, too, we learned that a cartoon by The Australian’s Bill Leak is being investigated by the Human Rights Commission for breaching section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. These two seemingly unrelated events tell a story of how free speech has gone awry in Australia.

Read on.

UPDATE II. Triggs yesterday accused The Saturday Paper of misquoting her:

“All they know is the world of Canberra and politics and they’ve lost any sense of a rule of law, and curiously enough for Canberra they don’t even understand what democracy is,” she was quoted as saying in The Saturday Paper.

“I knew I could have responded and destroyed them — I could have said, ‘You’ve asked me a question that demonstrated you have not read our statute. How dare you question what I do?’.”

Professor Triggs denied saying she could have “destroyed” the committee, concluding the fake quote “was put in by the sub-­editor”. She said other comments had been “taken out of context from the much larger and considered interview”.

“How dare you question what I do.” That line ought to be on the HRC’s letterhead.

Update:

Gillians Island

Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs now ’fesses up to misleading parliament after blaming a journalist for manufacturing quotes.

The Australian reports:

The error has plunged the human rights ­advocate into a fresh controversy, leaving her facing accusations her testimony was an ­“apparent ­deception”.

Professor Triggs, appearing ­before the Senate’s legal and constitutional affairs committee on Tuesday, was queried about comments to The Saturday Paper’s ­Ramona Koval in which she fumed at “seriously ill-informed and uneducated” politicians questioning her work.

The lawyer told the Senate some quotes from the transcript were “inaccurate” and others had been “taken out of context”. She denied suggesting she could have “destroyed” the committee by challenging its authority, insisting the quote was “put in by a sub-­editor”.

After learning the newspaper had an audio recording of the ­interview, Professor Triggs yesterday offered to “clarify” her evidence to the committee. “Upon further reflection I ­accept that the article was an accurate excerpt from a longer ­interview,” Professor Triggs told The Australian.

Just resign, ethics lady.

  1. Two Questions …
    Question 1.
    Is the islam appeasing female Triggs … clitless … like the islam females who wear black garbage bags ?
    Question 2.
    Is the islam appeasing male Soutphommasane … scrotum-empty … like the islam males who “courageously” continually perform great acts of group cowardice ?

    If the answer is Yes !!!
    then the subjects of these two questions are
    So similar to …
    many of Australia’s “elected” islam assisting Federal and State political representatives and
    many of the “elected” islam assisting local Councillors along with
    many of the islam assisting slave suicide squad (the ones with the greenish tinge and left list) !

    Purge everything islam Globally

    (There can Never be enough fitnah … ever !)
    Fitnah is the Qur’anic word for what has been dubbed Islamophobia in the REAL non-Islamic world.

  2. Who let the clowns loose?
    Triggs , Soutphommasane and the rest of the HRC parasites need to be sent to some dark dark hole somewhere and be never heard of again. They speak such absolute twoddle!
