I came across this at The Gateway Pundit: Australian Politician at Davos Explains that We Need a “Recalibration” of Freedom of Speech. Really, I said, so I watched the video. This is the summary of what she said:
‘Australian eSafety commissioner Julie Inman Grant tells the World Economic Forum we need a “recalibration” of freedom of speech. Which only means eliminating their ideological competition.’
Or according to the link to the above post:
Australian politicians forced shutdowns and restrictions on citizens based on COVID. Their leaders have no regard for their citizens or their human rights.
This became clear today in Davos as Australian Commissioner Julie Inman Grant told the World Economic Forum that we need a “recalibration” of freedom of speech.
Who is this Julie Inman Grant speaking on behalf of us. This is who she is, and she really does apparently speak on all our behalfs: eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant reappointed for another five years.
Australia’s eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant has been reappointed for a further five years as new laws granting her new internet takedown powers come into effect.
Ms Inman Grant, a former Microsoft, Twitter and Adobe executive, has been eSaftey Commissioner since 2017. On Sunday, communications minister Paul Fletcher announced she will remain in the job until 2027 with another maximum appointment term.
The reappointment comes as the controversial Online Safety Act comes into force, giving Ms Inman Grant new powers to issue take-down notices to a range of online services in relation to online content deemed to be harmful.
“Today’s reappointment, and the simultaneous commencement of the Online Safety Act, will enhance Australia’s position as a world leader in online safety.”
Ms Inman Grant was appointed eSafety commissioner in 2017 when the government agency responsible for children’s online safety expanded its remit to all Australians’ online safety and was renamed to the eSafety Commissioner.
The Commissioner is an independent statutory office holder, supported by around 67 staff, contractors and the national media regulator, the Australian Communications and Media Authority. The office has an annual budget of around $25 million but will receive more this year to support its new powers.
We have a “national media regulator”? And they have been given new powers. Meanwhile the nincompoop Minister who was in charge may yet lose his seat to some Teal candidate.
JUST IN CASE YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW A LITTLE MORE: This his her profile from The World Economic Forum:
I thought she had an American accent. Not that I hold it against her, but still she does seem like an import contaminated with every stupid notion found amongst the Washington bureaucracy. And do note, she is “one of the world’s most influential leaders revolutionising government”.
