Sign of the Apocalypse?

I almost agree with Antony Loewenstein's review of the Andrew Bolt case:
The Left shouldn’t celebrate legal victory against Murdoch’s Andrew makes me extremely uncomfortable that the law can tell us, as writers, journalists or citizens, what may be offensive. Should we not have the right to offend and be offended?
Pretty soon however, Loewenstein (a citizen but certainly not much of a writer or journalist) returns to his usual error-riddled stupidity.
I even agree with the Murdoch editor David Pemberthy who argues today that the laws that hammered Bolt could be used for other purposes,
What is there to stop a group of Jewish Australians from suing the Greens for their boycott of Israel and arguing that the boycott is anti-Semitic?
something I raised with colleagues last week
It's Penberthy, you chucklehead. And he's no "colleague" of yours, being employed at an actual media organisation. Loewenstein predicts embarrassment
My guess is that such a move against those backing BDS against apartheid Israel will be coming soon, and those on the Left cheering the verdict against the odious Bolt will have egg on their faces.
They are however quite comfortable and shameless boycotting Jewish organisations and partying like it's 1939.

Ha ha - great to see that Lootenswine can't spell Penberthy properly.

he makes a fair point though. Why isn't anyone using it to sue/prosecute the nasty scum involved in the BDS?

If Bolt is allegedly offensive and in breach, then what level of breach have the BDS committed?

Lowenphlegm may be ahead of the curve in his thinking here...what the hell?

"they are quite shameless etc.."

And they SHOULD be sued for it.
It IS antiSemitic.

Because that's what leftists do all day. People on the right would rather avoid the courts if at all possible.

Ilan Pappe: forerunner and possible role model for Loewenstein?

Speaking of "error-riddled stupidity":

Did you pass Year 10 English, Lieutenant Dan? Loewenstein didn't actually say Pemberthy was one of his colleagues; he said he raised the matter with colleagues. There is a difference.

Still, you didn't claim that Loewy, Pemberthy or Santa Claus owns Facebook, so we're making small steps.

You really are a wanker, "foxy". Not only do you interpret benign references to a movie character as racist, you whinge about my choice of monicker while ignoring the fact you post from a made-up one yourself.

(Unless of course your momma actually Christened you Foxy, which is not entirely out of the question. Maybe it was either that or Cletus.)

Get a clue you vapid troglodyte.

what a witty retort "John" boy. I suggest you look up vapid and go back to that ass hat of a blog where you apply the term superbly to your content. Whilst circle jerking a bunch of sub literate sycophants.

All the best wanker.

Foxy, I don't have a blog. Would you like to proceed with your head up your own arse, or shall I give you some time to extract?
