By now, everyone is aware of Bill Leak’s infamous cartoon.
TMR has elected to reproduce it here as a firmly extended central digit to the left – which loves taking offense for the sake of taking offense and which specialises in encouraging people who otherwise couldn’t care less to join their crusade (seriously, I take my hat off, they’re really good at doing this).
I’m not going to provide yet another opinion on the merits of the cartoon itself. That’s for you to decide. Long may you continue having the freedom to do just that.
Bias and conflict of interest
The point of this post is to debunk the accusations of bias and conflict of interest that have been raised (I bet you weren’t expecting that) and to expose the egregious waste of public money that is the Human Rights Commission (you were probably expecting that).
Go make yourself a cup of coffee (or prepare a stiff drink) and stick around: you’ll be blown away by some of the numbers.
