Hey lefties, violence never trumps free speech

To fold to these attacks would be to make them succeed.  Every death threat I get is another sign for me to push on.   The less threats I get, the less offensive I can be.    Because in the face of violence, I will continue to speak my mind.   

The alternative is to be quiet, or go away.   They must not be allowed to intimidate people into silence.  More so when these people are part of the media that don’t publish views they agree with.

Being offensive (to someone) is both inevitable as much as it is part of a free society.

So you’re offended?  So what?   Nothing happens.

I’m offended that countless teenage girls throw themselves at Justin Bieber.  Doesn’t mean I’m going to call for him (or them) to be killed for it.

Anyone who has been justifying the deaths of the French cartoonists in terms of being the result of being offensive can not believe in true freedom.

Freedom is not something that protects you from ideas you don’t like.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
