The Conservative Party's South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert is calling for common sense Australians to fight back against the army of politically correct, "thought police".
Policing prudes tut-tut if you express an opinion which isn't part of the sanitised group-think that is constantly being rammed down Australians' throats by 'virtuous' world elites.
Rikki's had enough! ... and put pen to paper in a letter to the editor of his local paper this week to sound the clarion call:
Ever since they stepped off a convict ship, Aussies have loved to have a laugh.
We insulted each other as a term of endearment.
We were famous the world over for our larrikin spirit.
But now everyone’s tiptoeing about trying not to offend anyone.
The politically correct prudes have taken over, and whether its newspaper cartoonists, people on telly or just Mick and Dave down the pub, everyone’s worried the thought police will nab them.
Letters to the Editor columns are testament to free speech, and now more than ever before, we need to defend our freedom to say what we like.
We don’t need laws to stop stupid statements – everyone’s got a smartphone, access to social media and your august publication to complain should someone go too far.
