The anti-Alan Jones rabble are fighting free speech, not just him

Weeks after the original supposedly offensive comments, the furore around Alan Jones’ breakfast show is showing no sign of abating.

Now, the show is to undergo a “full review”, according to a letter sent by Macquarie Media chairman Russell Tate.

More than 100 brands have now buckled at the knees and given in to extremist far-left activist bullies.

In August Jones commented that New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Adern should have a sock shoved down her throat. His wording on live radio was poor, he swiftly apologised but still these clowns are calling for his head.

In Tate’s letter he said, “This incident has brought into sharp focus the need for all Macquarie Media broadcasters to ensure that the debate they bring to the microphone and the words they use are, at all times, respectful and reflect the standards expected today by our listeners, our clients, and the wider community.”

Let’s be really clear about the wider point here: this debacle has little to do with Alan Jones.

The Mad F***ing Witches and Sleeping Giants who are leading the march from the angry left against Sydney’s 2GB Breakfast Show will not be happy even if they ensure Jones is shown the door.

They are man-hating, Liberal government loathing, internet trolls with an axe to grind against the establishment which they see as the enemy.

These activists are leaning on corporations ultimately because the election result did not go the way they wanted – and they still don’t understand why.

They believe that every word that does not fit their worldview is hate speech and would love to see all conservatives thrown in jail.

They bully people who disagree with them out of employment and doxx them while screeching about “power” and “smashing the patriarchy”.

They rant in caps because they are so blinded with rage, they cannot calm their fingers long enough on keyboards to form sensible sentences.

Anger and hate is the air that they breathe.

This is not about one man and his poorly chosen words.

This is a political push by a militant mob of feral creatures with a wacky, lengthy agenda.

We may all be wise to remember that you do not negotiate with terrorists. Ever.

We must all stand up to this lunacy – starting with large corporations, which frankly right now are displaying terrifying cowardice.
