To people complaining about Tony Abbott’s insistence on hiring only old white men to positions of power, they obviously didn’t get the memo.
So according to George Brandis, conservative opinions are just as valid and left wing opinions. But what if those conservative opinions are discriminatory or contradict well established scientific facts? Are those just as valid?
DID SENATOR BRANDIS JUST CALL A QUOTA ON MORE WOMEN IN FRONT-BENCH POLITICS
I’M DONE I’M GONE
If we’re using George Brandis’ logic, the Australian population is just older, Christian, straight, cisgendered white men

If you say something discriminating, defaming, or vilifying there should be a section of the law which allows you to be held responsible.

FUCK YOU SENATOR BRANDIS HOW’S THAT FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH JESUS FUCKING HAROLD CHRIST
Conservatives have always used ‘freedom of speech’ as an excuse to continue with their hate speech. Why should you’re opinion be respected when it demeans someone?
