Indigenous freedom of speech

Another successful attack on free speech and open discussion by the the ban it and censor it brigade. If articles had been written condemning white people ,white speech and the the wearing of white fashions nothing would be said. Let anyone criticise the indigenous or quasi-indigenous element of society and it's off to court for a ruling that it's upsetting or demeaning and must not be allowed. Who are these so easily offended people and what do they imagine their actions will achieve? On my part it's contempt,disregard and and an absolute determination to tell it how it is as often as possible. If the indigenous community don't like criticism or feel so perfect as to be above reproach they can say so like anyone else, not run off to the courts. Remember it's the taxpayer who funds these jaunts into judicial ego stroking, from funds dispensed by guilt ridden government consumed by an angst that few ordinary working people feel or care about but who see their tax dollars squandered on these stunts. Enough, lets put an end to political correctness, to censorship and to infringements on freedom of speech.

Show me the article so I can actually form an opinion whether he was practicing free speech or simple name calling. From the tone of the article here I suspect the latter.
