Australian Government Forcing Suppression, Ignorance and Nationalism After Lashing Out Against Its Own Critics.

Yeah-didnt-happen.jpg

It’s usually a common occurrence for people to put their foot down when they believe that free speech and an uncontrolled platform to criticise the government is about to be suppressed but with Australia it’s certainly no paranoia or hyperbole that the freedom of information and the ability to have an honest and unbiased news source is under serious threat with Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Recently criticised by the PM for its coverage of Edward Snowden – of whom Abbott has labelled a traitor – and the unbiased news stories detailing Tony Abbott’s abysmal failures in pertaining to human rights…

Murdoch Block! Get Rid of News Corp From Your Browsing Life

Murdoch Block

Are you sick of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and the incredibly biased reporting it lets loose upon the gullible folks of the world? Not sure where to start? Perhaps this Chrome Extension is for you. Murdoch Block, currently rated 4.73 stars out of five on the Chrome Web Store, provides a humorous “blocking” when your browser navigates to a website owned, operated, or controlled by the evil empire of sensationalisation and bias, News Corp. Perhaps this paragraph, is, ironically also biased – against News Corp – but forgive me for being a little annoyed at Murdoch’s heavy-handed puppeteering of the…

Steve Jobs, Apple and the NSA: Friends Working Together as Revealed by Leaked Slides

1.png

We’ve done this several times before. Steve Jobs was over-rated, True tech innovators weren’t given enough appraisal after their deaths and so forth. I think it’s very safe to say that WordswithMeaning.org and I as editor are no fans of Apple, Steve Jobs and the Apple fans who insist that Jobs was a revolutionary entrepreneur. (and of course let us humbly remind you that Apple threatened us with legal action for using a photo of Jobs). New slides leaked by Edward Snowden and released with commentary by Der Spiegel have indicated that Apple, Inc. was in-fact one of the driving…

Video Game Saint’s Row IV Refused Classification (Banned) in Australia. First Since Introduction of R18+ Classification.

25-Jun-2013-capture.png

Despite the introduction of the R18+ classification for video games, which is practically rendered useless now, the Australian classification board has announced that upcoming title Saints Row IV has been banned. Saint’s Row IV is the first game in Australia “to be refused classification under the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games that commenced on January 1, 2013″. Proof of the decision is available here on the Australian Government Classifications website. According to the official report from the classification board – the use of a silly scene depicting an “Alien anal probe” is the issue at hand. The game…

Conservative Academics Against Things That Aren’t Politically Correct: Housos; the Series That Sees Australian Housing Comission Residents as They See Themselves.

housos2.jpg

Australia can be described as racist, politically incorrect and sexist. More-often-than-not these descriptions fit the part. The serious response though is that this is not always an aggressively racist country – it’s one that uses self-deprecation and light transgression to loosen things up and separate the conservatives from the citizens who enjoy a good bit of offensive humour. Something that many academics do is consider themselves high enough in authority to label sitcoms as unfunny and overly-offensive. The idea of sitting on a high-horse certainly pops up in this respect. Paul Fenech: a Maltese actor, filmmaker, writer and director is…

UK Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill

gay-marriage-729-620x349.jpg

The UK has officially joined the handful of countries enabling Gay Marriage to be officially recognised after much debate between religious and conservative groups. The Marriage Bill – often referred to as the Same Sex Couples Bill – will enable same-sex couples to marry in both civil and religious ceremonies. Couples who have previously entered into civil partnerships can now translate their relationship into a government-recognised marriage. There have been multiple comments throughout the debate with Roger Gale even calling the bill ‘Orwellian’ but Prime Minister David Cameron stands strong behind the bill claiming it will make the UK stronger….

Australia’s New Law Proposal to Make “Offending” People a Felony.

Australia as seen in 2013

I’ve ranted plenty of times about how Nicola Roxon and her band of misfits is a controlling Big Brother-inspired bag of sluttery and that Roxon should go fuck herself with her freedom-reducing policies but you literally CAN NOT make this shit up. New proposals have been brought forward for anti-discrimination laws which would actually make the first paragraph — and undoubtedly, the rest of this article —  illegal. The recently proposed laws would allow citizens to fill the court rooms and enforce criminal action over anyone who hurts another person’s feelings. If you approach me in the street with your…

Coroner in Roberto Curti’s Police-Tasering Inquest Labels Officers’ Actions as “Thuggish”.

Roberto.jpg

New South Wales’ law enforcement agency has remained rather silent over the claims that the officers involved in the death of a Brazilian student Roberto Laudisio Curti who – a Sydney man who was practically tasered to death – face potential charges. Coroner Mary Jerram branded the officers’ behaviour as “thuggish” and reportedly rejected the evidence to suggest otherwise. The methods of using Tasers has been heavily criticised and the coroner has questioned the use of “drive-stun” mode. Drive-stun comprises of applying the Taser directly to the skin, set against discharging the device’s barbs from a distance. We’ve heard from…

Radical Laws in the Philippines Could See Social Network Users Jailed Over Sharing, ‘Liking’, Re-Tweeting Etc.

facebook.png

With more than 25 million Filipinos on Facebook and close to 10 million on Twitter, Filipinos rank among the top 10 social network users in the world. So before you hit that ‘like’ button on Facebook or you re-tweet something you found amusing/passionate/interesting then realize that if you’re in the Philippines you risk conviction with roughly 12 years jail time. President Benigno Aquino III signed the new legislation called “the Cybercrime Prevention Act”, which defines several new felonies on the net with things like “cybersex,” identity theft, hacking, spamming, and pornography listed as prosecutable misdemeanours. According to Sen. Teofisto Guingona…

Web Censorship 2012: An Angry Letter to Nicola Roxon and Stephen Conroy

Let's see how he likes it.

As someone who has spent a lot of time reporting on fascist politicians and who has equally shared disgust for draconian scumbags with the taste of freedom leaving a sour retention on their tongues, I figured it would be appropriate to approach Australian MP Nicola Roxon and Communications Minister Stephen Conroy (Cuntroy) regarding her support for the censorship of Australia’s internet and the cries regarding so-called “Twitter Trolls” This has been covered extensively on WordswithMeaning! by fellow author Cask J. Thomson so if you are not up to date, here is some reading material: Australia’s Nicola Roxon Pushing the “Big…
