“18C A LEADERSHIP DECISON”-Â Abbott
More like a lack of leadership decision. And the new tranche of anti-terrorism legislation has more holes than a crumpet, but it’s a start and shows the Government has recognised the threat even if it still can’t legally identify it as a Muslim threat. It would never have passed the Senate anyway. Larry Pickering
This a disaster for Australian democracy. A very very sad day indeed.
The Abbott Government has given up on reforming 18c. Too many lobby groups (Muslims) hate free speech. And the reforms were badly sold. I suspect the country will be poorer for this.
The country will be so much poorer for this. Freedom of Speech is the founding stone of our civilisation. 18C has no place in a free society, and to cave in on this most important right is disgraceful.
Freedom of Speech is not bigotry, its the bigots who want to muzzle us. Its also very dangerous to render us defenceless against the global jihad.
George Brandis said the retrogressive, undemocratic Section C of the Discrimination Act will be redefined (that’s polispeak for abolished) to allow for free speech regarding ethnic matters. Of course the ever-predictable Left went into a turbocharged spittle of “racism”.Â
But George wasn’t alluding to free speech regarding Greeks, Italians, Chinese or even Aborigines. He was talking about tackling Islam, and it’s hard to tackle any emergency if you can’t talk about it.
Every section of the media has been forced to tippy-toe around naming Islam as Australia’s only clear and present danger.
The Oz media didn’t need to be forced to tippy-toe around Islam: our obliging journaillie are the most submissive dhimmies, but they can’t wait to dig their claws into those who oppose the Koranimals….
Bill Shorten, and his friends at the ABC and Fairfax did their best to prevent the repeal of the carbon tax. They are now determined to prevent Tony Abbott cleaning up the usual monetary mess left by Labor.
But Labor left yet another mess, one they also don’t want cleaned up, and it’s becoming more urgent every day… Illegal Islamic immigration. (Read more on Pickeringpost)
