End Political Correctness


The first line in our national anthem says
“Australians are free”. But how free are we? More and more, we can’t say what we think, because someone will claim to be offended. We don’t tell a joke without the risk of being sacked, or hauled up before a court. We feel as if we can’t openly discuss things like, religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual
preference, or culture. In fact, the list of things we are too scared
to talk about grows longer every day. So, we feel as though we can’t say anything. It’s not safe because someone might take it the wrong way and complain. This is political correctness. And it is out
of control. We shouldn’t be scared of saying what we think.
Of saying it as we see it. Offence is taken, not given. If we don’t mean to give offence why should anyone take offence, why should anyone take offence? Free speech, and feeling free to discuss things
freely and openly, is a right. And hurt feelings are not the business of
the government. If we don’t put a stop to political correctness,
we will no longer be free. The Liberal Democrats believe we have a right to say what we think, to use words as they are intended without having them interpreted as offensive. The Liberal Democrats will never vote for
a reduction in freedom.

    I'm very torn and confused when it comes to our politics, but this is indeed agreeable. Whatever happened to the "sticks and stones" stuff?
    I can't stand the politically correct scene.

    If you pay careful attention to the wording, you can tell what they say is right and what they say they're going to do don't line up ever so slightly. Whatever bill they have planned will likely legalise hate-speech, threats of violence/aggravation and any other form of malicious communication.

    They're just playing on words to win the vote of assholes

    Of course we can discuss these things. No doubt can we discuss these things but you are talking to someone who uses this thing as an identity so discuss but dont oppress or make stupid jokes. You stated jokes at the start of your speech which already tells me that when you are talking to say… a homosexual or about a homosexual you make jokes about taking it up the ass and thats just not on man. Im an Australian-afghan Muslim and both of those tags are identities of me so whenever you make a joke about either one then you are making a joke about me so take it easy. If you are against Islam then sit down and discuss why, with me but dont just say "OOOOOOOh fuckin terrorist, go back to your own country" and run off.'I'm bloody sick of Australian accepting that part of being true blue Australian is to be extremely racist cause its not. My childhood education focused on multiculturalism in Australia and that shouldn't change. You're free to discuss but not oppress, you're free to have an intelligent honest opinion but not oppress the subject of that opinion, ultimately affecting their freedom.

    I disagree with you on a lot of things but thank you for at least being a true liberal and supporting free speech mate. Repeal 18C! While you're at it, as Australia is one of the few nations to have voiced opposition to Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (i.e. the right to free speech) on the internation stage, could you please look into having those old words retracted somehow?
