Why the Andrew Bolt guilty verdict is a victory for free speech

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, September 29, 2011,
Oh joy! Joy and cat dancing! The racist hate mongering trollumnist Andrew Bolt has been silenced at last!

This is wonderful thing for democracy, fellow travellers. (And by that I mean authentic democracy, not the shamocracy endorsed by conservatives.)

But of course you all know that. To say so is practically preaching to the converted (but not in a Christian way, of course).

Needless to say, Bolt sees the guilty verdict as something sinister. In his usual eeevil and highly emotive way, he frames...

Shock jocks, Murdoch's hate media and Anders Behring Breivik

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, July 26, 2011,
One thing that we have long known about eeevil right-wing conservatives is that they will never let a crisis (or an atrocity) go to waste. Immediately something horrible happens, they are shamelessly using it to bash their old enemies, even when there is no association whatsoever!

This tendency was accurately pointed out by fellow traveller Mike Stuchbery on Twitter when he revealed the cynical use of the massacre in Norway by you know who:

Andrew Bolt is on the same sick level as Oslo’s madm...

Tim Flannery, Gaia and ant colonies

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Sunday, April 10, 2011,
Fellow travellers, why am I not surprised that the appalling Andrew Bolt thinks that our Tim Flannery's latest searing insights into the state of our planet and its potential future are "wild" and (as he said on the radio) "freaky".

But there is nothing unscientific or totalitarian about Professor Flannery's theories. They are clearly logical and undeniably egalitarian. I mean, what could be more fair and equal than a society that does not banish nature and all its teeming life forms as "the o...

Andrew Bolt and Tim Flannery on MTR 1377 and that "thousand years" quote

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, March 25, 2011,
In a nauseating display of triumphalism, the appalling Tim Blair describes an entirely reasonable admission from Tim Flannery in his interview with Andrew Bolt on MTR1377 as if it was some gigantic faux pas that "blows the entire scam wide open".

The offending quote was this:

If we cut emissions today, global temperatures are not likely to drop for about a thousand years.

Far from exposing some kind of scam, it just shows how wise, visionary and far-thinking Professor Flannery is. It also reve...

Do not rush to judge Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon and Sharia4Australia

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, January 20, 2011,
Why am I not surprised at the appalling Andrew Bolt's bellicose reaction to sharia advocate Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon's mildly provocative statements regarding his desire to have the law changed in Australia.

The bilious blowhard accuses him of being 'troubled" and "angry", then goes on to say: "The guy clearly is someone with an ego that’s outsized in comparison to his real worth, and is getting off on the attention."

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! (And I don't mean that in a racis...
