Will You Help Me Become A Hero Of Free Speech?

Ben Drake

Until this year I'd always imagined that Free Speech had something to do with telling uncomfortable truths in defiance of the powerful, that it was courageous because the state or those in authority might try to silence you.

But what a naive fool I was!  Turns out it's much simpler than that. Evidently true Free Speech requires little more than drawing a shoddy cartoon poking a bit of harmless racist fun at an unpopular ethnic minority - and Bob's Your Uncle, you too can immediately be transformed into a Hero of Enlightenment Values and Western Culture*.

(*Remember, All Cultures Are Equal But Some Are More Equal Than Others!)

My cartoonSo - here's my plea.  I have drawn, on the back of a notepad here, a stick figure of a disabled Australian man, and written 'NOB!' across it in big letters.  You might think it lacks a certain artistic merit - nevertheless it is Expressing An Opinion and as such, I invoke the Voltaire Doctrine and
demand that you fight to the death for my right to have it posted and re-posted on the internet.

And I'm urging all comrades to join my campaign.  If you come across a major media outlet that has not yet reproduced my cartoon, deluge them with complaints at their spineless PC pandering, demand that they show courage in defence of Our Values by printing it proudly on their front page -
preferably along with an editorial explaining how we have of course nothing against the vast majority of moderate Ozzie Crips, but how nevertheless we must not shirk from defying AustralioDisabiliFascism.

I'd also urge you to forward this plea to all your friends and contacts.  No pressure, but do bear in mind, if you don't you are As Bad As Hitler Basically.  Thanks for listening.
