I am so sick of the new Progressive puritans.
Complaint: A 936 ABC Hobart listener complained that an offensive song was played on the Weekends program.
Complaint Finding Status: Upheld.
Audience and Consumer Affairs response: The broadcast of the song ‘My Boomerang Won’t Come Back’ was not in keeping with the ABC’s editorial standards for harm and offence; there was no editorial justification for playing it. The song was not on a regular ABC playlist but was aired because it was requested by a listener. This error was due to staff not being familiar with the track’s lyrics. The ABC apologised to the complainant, removed the track completely from the system and took steps to ensure that this would not happen again.
One Tasmanian POS kills off a song that millions have enjoyed. Where is the anger at these people? They’re like a bad disease moving through our society.

Professor Mike Adams took liberalism and progressivism to task in his viral class introduction that will leave you cheering.
In a time where college students are offended by pretty much everything, one professor at UNC-Wilmington decided to cut through the rhetoric and let his students know that they aren’t the special snowflakes liberals and their parents would have them believe.
His epic class introduction has gone viral, and for good reason: this is the most common sense lecture to come out of any college in a long time.
He begins by letting his students know that they don’t have the right to be offended and the rest you simply have to read for yourself.
Welcome back to class, students! I am Mike Adams your criminology professor here at UNC-Wilmington. Before we get started with the course I need to address an issue that is causing problems here at UNCW and in higher education all across the country. I am talking about the growing minority of students who believe they have a right to be free from being offended. If we don’t reverse this dangerous trend in our society there will soon be a majority of young people who will need to walk around in plastic bubble suits to protect them in the event that they come into contact with a dissenting viewpoint. That mentality is unworthy of an American. It’s hardly worthy of a Frenchman.
Let’s get something straight right now. You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society. If you don’t understand that you are confused and dangerously so. In part, I blame your high school teachers for failing to teach you basic civics before you got your diploma. Most of you went to the public high schools, which are a disaster. Don’t tell me that offended you. I went to a public high school.
Of course, your high school might not be the problem. It is entirely possible that the main reason why so many of you are confused about free speech is that piece of paper hanging on the wall right over there. Please turn your attention to that ridiculous document that is framed and hanging by the door. In fact, take a few minutes to read it before you leave class today. It is our campus speech code. It specifically says that there is a requirement that everyone must only engage in discourse that is “respectful.” That assertion is as ludicrous as it is illegal. I plan to have that thing ripped down from every classroom on campus before I retire.
One of my grandfathers served in World War I. My step-grandfather served in World War II. My sixth great grandfather enlisted in the American Revolution when he was only thirteen. These great men did not fight so we could simply relinquish our rights to the enemy within our borders. That enemy is the Marxists who run our public universities. If you are a Marxist and I just offended you, well, that’s tough. I guess they don’t make communists like they used to.
Unbelievably, a student once complained to the Department chairwoman that my mention of God and a Creator was a violation of Separation of Church and State. Let me be as clear as I possibly can: If any of you actually think that my decision to paraphrase the Declaration of Independence in the course syllabus is unconstitutional then you suffer from severe intellectual hernia.
Indeed, it takes hard work to become stupid enough to think the Declaration of Independence is unconstitutional. If you agree with the student who made that complaint then you are probably just an anti-religious zealot. Therefore, I am going to ask you to do exactly three things and do them in the exact order that I specify.
First, get out of my class. You can fill out the drop slip over at James Hall. Just tell them you don’t believe in true diversity and you want to be surrounded by people who agree with your twisted interpretation of the Constitution simply because they are the kind of people who will protect you from having your beliefs challenged or your feelings hurt.
Second, withdraw from the university. If you find that you are actually relieved because you will no longer be in a class where your beliefs might be challenged then you aren’t ready for college. Go get a job building houses so you can work with some illegal aliens who will help you gain a better appreciation of what this country has to offer.
Finally, if this doesn’t work then I would simply ask you to get the hell out of the country. The ever-growing thinned-skinned minority you have joined is simply ruining life in this once-great nation. Please move to some place like Cuba where you can enjoy the company of communists and get excellent health care. Just hop on a leaky boat and start paddling your way towards utopia. You will not be missed.
Professor Mike Adams previously made news when he won a legal battle after being subjected to retaliatory action by the college after he expressed Christian, religious and politically conservative views.
The jury found that these were the motivating factors behind the college’s decision not to promote Adams, and awarded him damages.
Do you agree with what Adams had to say? Let us know in the comments
I’ve read Mike Adams for years. He has been campaigning against this stinking PC BS for ever. Good value.
..and I just wondered whether a certain Mr. Giovanni has been to Tasmania in recent times.
What a load of crap. The abc is out of control.
Absolute crap. The abc are out of control. A lovely funny little song. Love it.
There is too much PC in our society. The people who actually live in the country are having their rights abrogated to appease the minority!! When did this become normal?? Apparently, I can no longer eat a pork pie or beef hamburger in public in case I offend a watching minority. I am not allowed to call an aboriginal ‘black’ but they may call me ‘white’ and not be shamed (I’m pin actually). You can call anything racist these days and howl down people loud enough so that the brainless sheep will then join in publicly humiliating, berating and castigating you. Our countries stink of PC and we were born here damn it!!
Type “critical theory” into the search box at top right of this blog and it will all become clear to you Ferdinald. It has been pumped into university students for 50 years by politically corrupt academics and the idea behind it is to belittle and denigrate western civilisation/ society. Everything must be criticised.
However, anything that opposes the west is free of criticism.
Here’s an example of how it works. Do you see how we in the west are constantly criticized for incorrect attitudes to homosexuality? Yet we are simultaneously told we must embrace Islam. However Islam is completely intolerant of homosexuality. Do you see left wingers running around criticising Islam for this? No you don’t. Such criticism is glaringly absent.
So you see, it is only Western society that must be criticised. So that those who live in it feel ashamed of it, but more importantly, will fail to defend it.
You want to stop the PC Marxists? You stand for western civilisation. You stress the benefits it has brought to the world. You speak out about why it is superior to most other models. (Islam for example) This is how the Marxist scum who wish to destroy us and rebuild in their Utopian vision will be stopped.
And it would help greatly to to cleanse our universities and schools of corrupt Marxist Frankfurt School academics. They, and their influence over our young, and their construction of the white anting “political class” are the root cause of every problem the West now endures.
