This week it has been culture war issues dominating the news cycle. Joining me to discuss all of it is once again Senior Editor of The Unshackled Damien Ferri.
Folau Legal Fund
Former rugby player Israel Folau last Friday opened up a GoFundMe page to fund his legal challenge against Rugby Australia for terminating his playing contract. This attracted a fair bit on controversy given that he has a property portfolio worth $7 milliion.
On Monday morning GoFundMe pulled Folau’s page for violating their terms of service. The Australian Christian Lobby has restarted the legal fund and already raised over $1 million in less than 24 hours.
The escalation of emotion around this issue has increased with freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association and corporate power being hotly debated.
Australian Conservatives Demise
Cory Bernardi announced he was planning to deregister his Australian Conservatives party after their poor performance at the federal election. He claims the party is no longer needed because Scott Morrison is a good conservative Prime Minister.
A lot of his former members and supporters would beg to differ with that view are vowing to relaunch a new proper conservative party very soon to offer a real alternative to the Australian voters.
There has also been change in Fred Nile’s Christian Democratic Party with 18 year old Samraat Joshua Grewal assisted by 22 year old Joel Jammal removing the party’s state executive in an effort to renew the party after they failed to have their state MLC re-elected at the NSW state election.
True Blue Crew Rally in Sydney
Damien also gives us a report on the True Blue Crew Aussie Pride Solidarity March at Penrith in Sydney last Saturday. Around 30 patriots attended with Ricky Turner the special guest speaker. It was a low turnout but with most patriot groups banned from Facebook advertising these events is much more difficult.
