Poor Andrew Bolt. The man is billed as Australia’s most-read columnist. And he’s certainly the most prolific (he has a blog updated several times a day, a twice-weekly column syndicated across the News Corp tabloid network, a nightly TV show and a nightly radio show). But he doesn’t do it for love. Rather, he’s compelled to speak out — he’s the lone soldier in a one-man culture war against the elites who would seek to silence him, and through him, the voices of the “real Australia” (his phrase) he claims to represent.
And for his patriotic duties, he’s scorned, criticised and derided by elites who seek to make the nation worse.
