The appointment of Tim Wilson to the Australian Human Rights Commission has exposed some of the uglier aspect of the political left. We’ve seen Mungo MacCallum express some very ugly sentiments – under the guise of warning of the apparent dangers of free speech. Then there is this tweet.
The particular crowd in the tweet run a right-wing parody trolling outfit – pretending to be right-wingers in order to put out extreme statements in order to discredit conservatives. Although, they’re not very good at it – I managed to out-troll them the other night and got them to break character. In response one of them posted a picture of me on the internet advising people to call the police if anyone saw as me as I was a well know kiddy-fiddler. All in the name of free speech they claimed.
The point is this – the attacks on Tim Wilson are not simply angry protesters or heat of the moment frustration. They have been sustained over a period of time, and have come through highly regarded lefty celebrities and been published in the mainstream media. Then there has been the filth on twitter – I have been retweeting as many of the more outrageous attacks on Tim as possible. The more that we expose the left on this, and other matters, the better.
