The Tyranny of Nice in Oz?

Or stupid judge tricks in Oz. Andrew Bolt has been convicted of offending people, by a judge no less. Oz seems to have the same problems with allowing free speech as we do in Canad.

In Australia, a chilling verdict against free speech

I’ve linked to the excellent work of Australian newspaper columnist and blogger Andrew Bolt many times over the year on this blog (see here.)
So I was shocked to see that he was prosecuted and found guilty today in a federal court case over two columns he wrote in 2009 about race, entitlements, and politics.
It’s chilling. There’s no other word for it. And I shudder to think how “progressives” here in America would relish the legal bludgeon Australia’s politically correct mob used to punish Bolt’s views.
