In NZ: Concerning attitude over free speech

07/05/2021

Comment by Russell Brown, NZ media commentator, blog owner

Actually I don’t really care what either Brash has to say, nor that Brown disagrees.

However, I do care about:

1 Brown appearing to incite the ‘cancelling’ of Brash, though that may not have been his intent

2 The preponderance, in the thread, of responses that suggest free speech only exists for those of a certain viewpoint and certainly not for Brash.

This is very concerning, especially when the government is proposing harmful laws on hate speech, is increasingly authoritarian and divisive.

The majority of the thread respondents would,I suspect concur with the government actions.

Very worrisome for those who care for freedom.

Note: This thread was from an ANZAC Day tweet. Ironic!
