Aussies are volunteering to ride on public transport alongside Muslims worried about the treatment they'll get from certain sections of society...

David Jones @DavidJo52951945
#illridewithyou is perhaps the most stupid hashtag I have seen.
No prizes for guessing Mr Jones's voting intentions

You'll be shocked to learn that Daily Mail readers are not getting on board with the #illridewithyou initiative.

A lot of them seem positively furious at this touching display of tolerance. They do hate being reminded that their views are rejected by civilised society.

"I'll ride with you". This just made my day. I'm nineteen years old, I live in England and I choose to wear the headscarf whenever I make my way to University and everywhere, really. It's nice to know there are always people in the world who help those who are in need of help. Peace be upon you my brothers and sisters in humanity! :)

Second and 3rd worst rated comments:

Fuck the lot of them - the plumsack who did this and the soulless shits who disparage a harmless attempt just to make things better for everyone by that hashtag. Fuck them all.

Anders seems a bit confused about his hero's choice of middle eastern allies.

Meanwhile, in other freedom of speech news.
The state Liberal government in Tasmania is setting sweeping precedents for the suppression of protests against, and even criticism of, corporate activities. Having already imposed laws last November banning protests near business premises, the government last week confirmed that it is preparing new legislation, unique in Australia, to allow corporations to sue people for defamation.

The anti-democratic legislation will give companies operating anywhere in Australia the power to drag individuals or organisations through the courts, potentially bankrupting them, just for criticising their activities, including on social media. Defamation damages can run into millions of dollars in alleged lost profits, on top of the legal costs of fighting such cases.

Those potentially subject to the new defamation laws will include workers organising industrial campaigns against a company or industry, groups mounting boycott campaigns against particular corporations, and organisations exposing exploitative or destructive corporate operations. Even historians writing on the nefarious past record of a still-operating company could be financially ruined.
