What a load of garbage!
Upon searching up the term ‘Section 18C’, this is what I found;
‘Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act makes it unlawful for someone to do an act that is reasonably likely to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” someone because of their race or ethnicity’
What a load of rubbish. Freedom of speech is something that we once took for granted, but it is disappearing, and rapidly. With section 18C, there is nothing you can say against someone of another race, because it might offend them! Does this mean that they are invincible, from claims that the common white person has to stand? It is to broad, to easily abused, and is taking our freedom of speech away, in the blink of an eye.
While we may have once been told not to be racist, because it is abusing someone because of his or her race, colour or ethnicity, this goes over the top. I fully agree with the racist teaching, that we shouldn’t say anything racist, but offending someone is against the law.
“Now children, don’t open your mouth, you might say something against the law!” will be the next parent to child conversation!
It brings us back to the old Adam Goode's saga. All those people that booed Adam Goodes were apparently racists, or thats what most commentators believed, certainly those from the ABC, and most from channel 10's 'Studio 10' panel. For Alan Jone's words on the matter, go here –>
or Sam Newman's words are here –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGR9MF5yBg8
I certainly agree with them both
If Section 18C is not repealed, then half the people in Australia can be classified 'bigots' and 'racists'.
Malcolm Turnbull, if you don’t hear anything from the public, just hear this, repeal Section 18C, it is idiotic, irresponsible, and plain dumb!
