Gillard and Roxon…femifascists:

Free speech is under attack in Australia.
‘THE law that was used to silence Andrew Bolt has been supercharged by the Gillard government’s proposed changes to anti-discrimination laws.
Bolt was found to have breached section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, which says it is unlawful to offend or insult someone on the basis of racial or ethnic characteristics in a public space.
But Attorney-General Nicola Roxon’s proposed changes massively expand the list of characteristics people can be offended by, expanding the jurisdiction into shops, workplaces and sporting clubs.
The regime will provide a new weapon in the war on free speech by even including “political opinion” as a ground on which people can be discriminated against.
This extraordinary change makes even innocuous political expressions subject to the law – a person need only be offended or insulted in order to make out a claim. Shop owners displaying signs in support of a political candidate may now be legally discriminating against employees who want the other guy to win…’

‘THE Australian government is developing new software to monitor citizens’ social media conversations.
…..CSIRO is developing a second social media monitoring tool, called Vizie, which may have far broader political implications.
The software detects and monitors conversation topics – including those which may be politically sensitive – across a range of websites..’

    Same tactics repeated the world over across time.If you don’t like your critics shut them up.
    I wonder when the trains will start rolling towards the new Gulags?

    • Darin, not far away I think. It was just a few decades ago that we went to war to stop this shit, but now it’s back again yet bozo young liberals are oblivious of this.

    “..bozo young liberals are oblivious of this”
    Well of course they are–the Marxist “education” system has done its job, raising generations utterly ignorant of history.
    Those with no history can be fed whatever propaganda the government sees fit and they have nothing to check it against.

    • But, KG, what I don’t understand is why former right-leaning governments, when they were truly right leaning, didn’t pick up on this fact; the fact that if you can control education, you can control power. Even if Abbot gets elected, just like Key, he won’t make the changes to education that are required to bring about political neutrality in education.

      • KG says:

        Conservative, I think it’s because they are in fact pretty much the same gang, wearing different patches.
        What politician, hoping to become part of the next government, will object to the present government grabbing more power and control?
        The other aspect of this is the fact that bureaucrats (and teacher’s unions) have enormous, unaccountable power and the very few politicians who’d like to see some semblance of liberty restored would have to take them on.
        Sisyphus had it easy…

        • KG, I taught English in universities in Korea for over 12 years and never saw one bit of propaganda, but when I came back here it was full of it; hense, I have now quit teaching. Yes, I think you are right; the present right-wing governments are one and the same as left-wing. Everywhere I look, the left bribe with candy, and the right cowers. We know this can’t continue, so what will happen?

  3. KG says:

    I think what will happen is the we’ll limp our way towards slavery, Conservative, while the people are distracted by bread and circuses.
    Those few who make a stand will be ridiculed, reviled and marginalised by the very people they’re trying to wake up.
    Nobody likes to be woken from a pleasant dream….. ;-)

  4. Or perhaps individuals will rise up! I personally, think another war is just around the corner, and I don’t think this will necessarily be a world war but country, civil wars between left and right. Left and right used to co-exist, but not anymore.

  5. Darin says:

    I think the problem here is the education establishment is so dug in.Like any enemy who has dug in and built fortifications they are dam hard to displace.

    Here Tenure is their strongest defense against change.If a teacher or professor can hang on until they receive Tenure then they can near about commit murder and get away with it.

  6. RWT says:

    It’s beyond belief isn’t is, and still the liar remains reasonably popular.

    I think we have to get to the point where businesses are simply sued and shutdown, leaving people jobless and centrelink starved of funds . Where we can’t say shit about anything and then only will we finally wake up.

    We seem to be in some sort of weird twilight fantasy world where we will only learn from pain and misery.

    • KG says:

      I think the vast majority of people are now simply incapable of connecting the dots, RWT.
      They live in a fantasy world where–just like a TV program–everything gets neatly resolved at no pain to themselves.
      And the last place that will be starved of funds is Centrelink–welfare is the price paid by the productive for (relative) peace and safety, and used by politicians as bribes for votes.
