Petition to introduce more laws against our freedoms!

Book burning next?


A PETITION to stop the controversial neo-Nazi Hammered Music Festival from being held in Brisbane in April has been launched by Member for Burnett Rob Messenger.

"If the laws aren't up to the task to stop the neo-Nazi gatherings, then we've got to change the laws."

"Just when I thought our poor excuse for a politician Rob Messenger had crawled back under the log he comes from, he comes out with this sort of dribble that really has nothing to do with the Burnett Electorate. Sure he'll make headlines about it , he is good at that sort of media attention. But why dont he concentrate on the electorate he is supposed to represent. Make the Burnett Electorate the better place it once was before he got elected in.This clown is certainly a lame duck pollie that has lost his way."

"This petition is nothing more than a cynical ploy to gain votes before the election, create the appearance he is doing something and divert the attention from his anti-gay stance. Despite being elected for eight years, he doesn’t even understand the powers of the Racial Discrimination Act. If he had read the legislation properly, he would realise that despite this music festival being truly appalling, neither the police or the government can do anything to stop it. The Act does not prohibit racial hatred or vilification that is not made ‘in public’. This music festival is a private event being held in someone’s backyard and it is invite only. As the RD act is federal legislation, the QLD government doesn’t have the authority to amend the law to stop it. If the means to stop this existed, the Brisbane Council would have already done so. But I’m sure Messenger will use this as political ammunition against Bligh and Newman claiming they "did nothing" when their hands are clearly tied. Signing this is a waste of time."
