Israel Folau: Alan Jones calls Rugby Australia ruling ‘Orwellian’

Israel Folau: Alan Jones calls Rugby Australia ruling ‘Orwellian’, by Sascha O’Sullivan.

“The Australia that our Anzacs fought for seems to be disappearing before our very eyes,” the 2GB broadcaster told his listeners. “This is not the Australia our veterans fought for and we’re going to have to take our country back by argument and by the democratic and peaceful process — not by hate and revenge or vilification and intimidation.” …

Jones said there was “nothing wrong with Israel, it’s the society and those who prosecute him who are sick’’. …

Jones read extracts from the maiden speech of NSW’s One Nation leader, Mark Latham, which will be delivered to state parliament today. Jones called it an “outstanding” speech on freedom of speech and western civilisation.

Jones said Latham’s speech would say that “all Israel Folau has done is say what people have said for hundreds of years under the banner of the bible.” …

“We take oaths of office in every court of the land. The Prime Minister is sworn in with his hand on the Bible — the same bible which Israel Folau has quoted and he’s now had his dignity, his integrity, his employment, his vocation and his income stolen from him. …

“The battle has just begun, and it’s a battle for all Australians. If we’re not free to articulate our religious beliefs and quote from the bible, and if we’re not free to speak for fear that someone affects a hurt or is part of the offence industry, if that’s where we’ve reached in this country, we’ve reached a dark place and we are all at risk.”

The left is becoming too strong, because they are now strong enough to indulge their totalitarian streak.
