Queenslanders, watch out.
The New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) is watching you. It’s observing you. And it’s not happy with you at all.
Actually, it’s not just Queenslanders that the New South Wales Thought Police are monitoring. With the backing of the New South Wales government, it’s observing people all over Australia, no doubt, in an attempt to find any hint of heresy. In fact, their operations may well be global.
But don’t just take my word for it.
This is from a letter that I recently received from the Acting President of the New South Wales ADB, whingeing about many things, including:
“The disproportionate amount of time and resources required of ADB staff in reading, reviewing and responding to … the widespread public criticism of the ADB by you and your social media followers … are an unreasonable impost on the public resources allocated to the ADB to carry out its statutory functions.”
Now, I’m not sure why the ADB is allocating public resources to monitor the views of people who follow me on social media. But I do agree entirely that such a use of public resources is unreasonable.
In fact, now that the ADB has seemingly admitted to using taxpayer funds to visit my Facebook page (which I operate from Queensland), read the comments there and even respond to them, I think it would be entirely reasonable for the New South Wales parliament to hold an inquiry into the creepy conduct of the ADB.
Why is the ADB monitoring my social media followers?
Why is it responding to their comments?
And how, exactly, is it ‘responding’ to these comments?
It’s a very important question. I have not seen a single instance of an ADB response to any comment that I, or any of my social media followers, have made. And that means any response has been made by an unofficial ADB social media account.
It could well be that the New South Wales Thought Police are operating secret accounts to try and drum up complaints.
Don’t be surprised if that is the case. It’s happened before. Garry Burns, complainant extraordinaire, has admitted trying to leave comments under a fake name on my website.
And in Canada, the Thought Police there came unstuck in a big way when it was revealed that the Canadian Hatefinder-General, as he was appropriately named by Mark Steyn, spent his time drudging up complaints using numerous fake aliases.
So don’t be surprised if the New South Wales ADB is stupid enough to do the same thing.
To paraphrase an old saying: the same old, tired and clapped-out bureaucrats are committing the same old, tired and clapped-out attacks on freedom. And we’ll keep defeating them in the same old, tired way too. There is every reason to believe that the ADB will meet its Waterloo later this year.
The good news is that the ADB’s admissions in writing don’t help it at all. But they are rather useful for me.
For instance, the New South Wales ADB has no statutory power to utilise public resources to monitor political commentary in Queensland.
However, it does have a statutory role to investigate complaints. And it should investigate complaints fairly, justly and in a procedurally-correct manner, regardless of political debate.
However, at the precise moment that the ADB has accepted complaint number 32 against me from a self-described serial litigant who has also incited others to complain so that he could profit from my financial detriment, the ADB has gone off the deep end about the criticism that it receives for things like its support of homosexual marriage and its frequent consultations with the Sydney Beat Project.
It all sounds rather like the ADB is not only biased against conservative views, but is commencing a malicious investigation into me as well.
