It’s a great shame that one of the worlds greatest rugby players gets fired because some alphabet people seemingly got their fragile feelings hurt
It would seem that rugby Australia didn’t want to fire him, and why would they, but were pressured by qantas and didn’t want to lose their sponsorship with qantas worth 8 figures

What happened to freedom of speech in this great country?
It’s now trendy for corporations to be politically woke, they want to accompany services/products with a political message-where do they get off lecturing people?
Check out Gillette for a great example of this
Same deal with qantas, only they are doing it out of the public spotlight
Who made the alphabet people the speech police?

I’m glad there are people with some backbone still out there, like Folau, because the silent majority have been pandering to perverted minority groups for too long

My take on it is whatever way you look at it, what he did was simply stupid. Freedom of speech is one thing, but when you know what you say is going to offend then you are simply asking for trouble. Hence why I think he was foolish.

At the end of the day he knows it was silly, and he also knows it is hypocritical as if you read all the Old Testament things that are wrong he has broken at least one of them and that is marking his skin (ie tattoos). There is plenty of other things in the Old Testament that are accepted today and he would know that. And yes, he was just quoting the Old Testament, but that doesn’t mean he should. Try quoting Adolph Hitler and see what reaction you get!

I personally think that people that others tend to look up to (like sports people in some cases) need to be careful what they say. One thing that really stood out to me was Ash Brazill (Collingwood Netball and AFL) said that if her teenage icon Liz Ellis had said something like Israel said she would have been devastated. Ash originally played her junior days in NSW and in those confused teenage years you can imagine how she would look up to one of the most inspirational netballers of the day and the Australian Captain. Ash also came out and defended Maria (Israel’s wife) by stating that Maria was one of the first to send her a congratulations message after Ash got married, yes if you haven’t worked it out Ash is same sex married.

Go back a few years ago and Folau would never of had such a pathetic problem pop up in the first place at all.

What has happened here is that the new age or Satanist or lest on can call them Cultural Marxist Political Correct ding bats have created this dribble, he is only a sports player for crying out loud, but the Media have taken ownership of all nowadays and have elevated Sports people into the arena of their gods or Idols ! to be payed with as the cunning wretched parasite Media pleases, with all the you must this you must that. F off ! they are only just sports players.

But nowadays the Media has been peddling that such people are owed by the media or the Nation ? how did this come about ? well they started out spinning that such people are roll models for the children BS ! f me dead they are only sports people not Doctors, just some dumb c that can play a game not f ing scholars.

Tho Folau looks to have a moral virtues that is much more than I can say for most of the grubs that will not stand up to the Satanic ding bats that have made the world hell for people bastardising and undermining our Aussie Culture of a fair suck of the sav, to one of living in fear of some Nazi type of moronic clown claiming their new age BS superiority over all, you can't say this or that ! what f ing BS ! I had grown up in this Nation knowing that anyone could say what ever they wanted to do and no one really gave a f ing rats arse, as such was just you opinion and everyone has one just like arse holes.

But what I deplore and totally despise is self righteous pricks that will use such malice to try and destroy another's lively hood, and that to me is as good as declaration of war, I will not stand for such Nazi type of thuggery over lording people like that, as such people are the lowest filth on the planet down their with child molesters that need to be exposed for what they truly are wretched parasites that should never be tolerated first and foremost.
