LGBTI ‘Safe Schools’ Debate Reduced to Slurs and Smears

The ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ issue highlights the problem we have with political debate in Australia.

Now that Turnbull has called for a review of the $8 million government funded ‘All of Us’ LGBTI school program, the left is showing its true totalitarian colours.
