voting for Tim …

The ‘New Stalinists’ pulled a vote on Tim Wilson’s appointment on the Human Rights Commission. In true Stazi fashion, the opposing voice is cut off when they find that Catallaxy File readers have all been voting in Wilson’s favor: Vote for Tim

A group of luvvies have set up an online vote relating to Tim Wilson’s appointment to the Human Rights Commission. Please get over there and vote.

Too late, the vote has been deleted when ‘voting for Tim’ reached 74% in favor, so unless you want to go over there, these are their thoughts: Tim’s appointment as Commissioner is the worst decision ever”.

Yes, this is ‘Citizen Journalism’, Tim Blair’s favorite target,  free speech lover Margot Kingston’s new blog site /sarc. I bet their traffic count went through the roof for a bit.

The media left, are worried too: George Brandis’ inside job on human rights draws fire … if only they know which communist countries are running the UNHCR.

They do know of course.

However, the worst decision by far has been the appointment of Tim Wilson as Human Rights Commissioner for Free Speech. Wilson is former policy director of the influential Institute of Public Affairs (IPA).

Earlier this year, the IPA’s 70th anniversary dinner was attended by conservative luminaries such Rupert Murdoch, Gina Rinehart, Andrew Bolt, George Pell and Tony Abbott.  The IPA supports deeply conservative ideas that would be rejected by many Australians. These include privatising the ABC and SBS, cutting corporate tax to 25%, repealing restrictions on nuclear power and introducing voluntary voting.

Tony Abbott has already implemented a number of the IPA’s recommendations, including abolishing the Clean Energy Fund, repealing the mining tax and ceasing support for the Australian car industry.

The IPA’s idea number 82 is: “Abolish the Human Rights Commission”.

And the IPA’s Tim Wilson will now take up a role paying more than $300,000 per year with the organisation he wants abolished.
