The great section 18C “non-debate” has ended. Malcolm Turnbull has said that he has more important things to do – no doubt working with his mate Obama to get in the TPP before either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump are elected president, because they both oppose the TPP.
Yes, the leader of the Liberals is too busy to defend what should be the fundamental liberal value, freedom of speech. Instead, energies must be devoted to be “freedom” of corporations – which are by definition collectivist entities – to be able to override all of the hard fought freedoms of the people through the globalist TPP.
The section 18 C non-debate closed with the multicult lobby having the final say, because, this is after all, their legislation. Free speech is not an absolute, they said, citing the example that one cannot falsely shout “fire” in a cinema. Nobody said it was and neither should be the multicult right not to be offended, especially since almost anything can offend somebody and the bar is at tripping level.
