No human rights for bloggers, no human rights for cartoonists and no human rights for freedom of speech: this miserable bitch and her despicable organization needs to be sacked:
UNELECTED AND OUT OF CONTROL
Tim Blair, The Daily Telegraph
Gillian Triggs: “You are expected and required to read my reports.”
Having failed to crush a mere blogger, the $25 million per year Human Rights Commission now sets out to destroy a cartoonist.
Armed with 18C and encouraged by the witless, censorious fury of Twitter leftists, the HRC is attacking The Australian‘s Bill Leak:
Commission president Gillian Triggs’s delegate, Jodie Ball, has written to the newspaper’s lawyers to advise that allegations of racial hatred under the Racial Discrimination Act will be investigated.
At the very least, Bill could have expected a letter from the great Gillian herself. He should feel insulted.
The allegations are in a complaint by Melissa Dinnison over Leak’s August 4 cartoon, which prompted widespread commendation and criticism for its blunt portrayal of a crisis in Aboriginal parenting.
In the cartoon, an indigenous uniformed Northern Territory police officer presents an indigenous youth to his father in an outback setting and says to the father: “You’ll have to sit down and talk to your son about personal responsibility.” The indigenous father, who is holding a can of Victoria Bitter beer, replies: “Yeah righto, what’s his name then?”
The German government
is about to establishes established a special censorship group dedicated to identifying and deleting immigration-critical messages on Facebook.
To help with this task the government has included a former agent for the East German secret service Stasi, who today is a dedicated radical left-wing “anti-racisist”.
The German Minister of Justice, Heiko Maas, in August published an open letter to Facebook requesting that the social networking service started to systematically erase “xenophobic” material.
After a meeting with a delegation from Facebook on Monday, the minister has now drawn up a plan on how the censorship will happen. A special working group will deal with deleting of comments.
– The objective is to facilitate the identification of criminal statements, says Maas to the German newspaper Bild.
The working group’s members are appointed by both the Government and Facebook, but also the organization Network Against Nazis (“Netz gegen Nazis”) has been invited. The network was founded in 2007 by Amadeu Antonio Stiftung, and is led by left-wing activist Anetta Kahane (pictured).
In the years 1974-1982, Kahane worked under the code name “Victoria” as a secret agent for the East German security service Stasi. That an old Stasi informer should devote herself to censor material on Facebook is being sharply criticized by the anti-immigration German news site PI News.
“25 years after the German reunification, former DDR citizens, along with their West German brothers and sisters, are to be monitored by former Stasi cadres”, the site writes in a comment.
Today, Anetta Kahane works as a professional “anti-racist”, and attracted attention last year after after an interview with RT, having proclaimed that the European countries have to open their borders and to adapt fully to the immigrants from the Third World.
– Immigration is the future. We really need to change the immigration policy in Europe. This is very important, you have to adapt the education system and adapting countries’ self-understanding. They are no longer just white or just Swedes, or only Portuguese or German. They are multicultural places in the world, she said.
Shame on the German government for censoring free speech, and shame on Facebook for allowing it!
Bill Leak censorship continued:
Those who supported the cartoon, including Aboriginal intellectuals and frontline workers, praised it for cutting through a miasma of political correctness to confront painful truths about a fundamental reason for the chronic neglect and abuse of indigenous children.
The cartoon’s loudest critics — including prominent media commentators and political philosopher and Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane, who publicly called for racial hatred complaints — described Leak’s work as a racist and hateful smear of indigenous parents.
Documents provided by the federal human rights body state Ms Dinnison has complained under section 18C because she says she has “experienced racial hatred” and been discriminated against as a result of the cartoon.
Ms Ball explained that when a complaint is received, Professor Triggs “is required to inquire into and attempt to resolve the complaint by conciliation”. The complaint is dated August 4 but the commission brought it to The Australian’s attention for the first time this month.
So the complaint was filed on the very day of publication. Interesting. How many minutes elapsed before Bill’s cartoon somehow caused discrimination?
Leak and the newspaper have been given an October 28 deadline to respond to Ms Dinnison’s claims that “the publishing of the cartoon on August 4, 2016, constitutes racial hatred under the terms of 18C”, and to provide submissions “relevant to the commission’s consideration of the matter”.
The human rights body has also asked if Leak and the newspaper “would be willing to participate in a conciliation process to try to resolve the complaint”.
Do these people ever laugh?
