But the accusation bruised Bolt so badly he stayed at home the following day, presumably clutching a security blanket.
In her comments Marcia Langton actually referred to Justice Bromberg’s judgement delivered in September 2011.
[The plaintiffs] Were reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to have been offended, insulted, humiliated or intimidated by the imputations conveyed by the newspaper articles
— JUDGMENT, Bromberg J, Federal Court of Australia, Eatock v Bolt , 28th September, 2011
i.e. the conditions necessary for a finding that a racist act had been committed had been proven.
We are still waiting two years later for the eminent judge to be the subject of a dummy spit.
Now let’s see what Bolt wrote in his very own column.
Remember Bolt likes to portray himself as a champion of “free speech”. Guess that means free speech only for him and his kind.
For instance he had this to say about Indigenous academic Dr Misty Jenkins (as quoted by Paul Barry)
She (Professor Langton) then talked about her colleague Dr Misty Jenkins, whom Bolt had described in a previous column as “a blonde and pale science PhD who calls herself Aboriginal”
Errr…Misty Jenkins is Aboriginal
Now Bolt might be interested to know that it is not just Indigenous people who are offended by his words and their implications about Misty Jenkins.
And full marks to “Warren” for expressing our thoughts.
