Senator Brandis QC, arose in the Senate and in his best Oxford vernacular explained that, “Everyone has a right to be bigoted”. It was grist for the Green mill and set alight the lunatic Left in a blizzard of PC bullshit. 

From that moment, Tony Abbott’s election promise to reform the Act hit the cutting room floor and joined the bundle of other broken promises.

Had our learned friend arose to say instead that, “Everyone has a right to free speech”, the Bill would have sailed through the Senate.

I don’t think I will give Senator Brandis a call next time I kill a radicalised Muslim.

So after what Rinaldo says it didnt have anything to do with Abbott maybe losing his one muslim voted seat? Who do you believe and what right did Abbott have in making an “executive decision” to not reform the act anyway?

It had to have been a planned “stuff up”. Let’s just ignore the wishes of the majority which voted for this gutless Coalition and go with the noisy minorities.

This was killed by the Jews, They appeared at every possible moment to tell us they were spearheading the drive against it. They have spearheaded these laws in most western countries

Give Brandis a punch in the mouth and claim it under Parliamentary Priviledge.

Shame, Abbott, Shame

The broken promise to fight for the repeal of this iniquitous law is far worse than a mere politician’s imitation of a wind vane. Free speech is at the core of our democracy. If the Prime Minister doesn’t recognise that simple and indisputable fact he is unfit to hold the office

Larry i fully agree with you on this matter. I believe it was handled poorly, Unfortunately we seem to be run by a minority. EG: Poofters/Muslims/Coons/Coconuts only take up a faction of our population however (all this Political Correctness BS) it appears that they are the main source of this rubbish…

Only two parliamentarians impress me….Bishop and Morrison ( next Lib Leader when Labor almost inevitably wins next election ). As for Brandis – another stuff up…..His remark – ” Everyone has the right to be bigoted ” infers that 18C reform was to serve bigots…..No ! 18C reform would legally enable ALL.in Australia .. the right to express their opinion without risk of punishment.. initiated by anybody who feels ‘offended’. Abbott broke HIS 18C promise and shot it down…( like Burkha safeguard in parliament ) and the recent allocation of $30 million to improve local moslem relations …-.to appease the… Read more »
