The tragedy of silenced conservatives: an interview with the rainbow gestapo

Right-wing pundits are at very real risk of disappearing ... by remaining outspoken on almost all media channels currently available, says freelance writer Liz Duck-Chong.

You can hardly open a newspaper, tune into a radio station or turn on the TV at the moment without being subjected to the voices of the silenced, they're everywhere.

Tony Abbott and his colleagues are constantly navigating the shifting dichotomy of claiming excessive expenses to go speak to party members and supporters, and being silenced around the clock. Miranda Devine continues to have no voice at all, and who can forget Pauline Hanson's continued silencing while speaking in question time, one of our country's primary venues of political consequence. As the postal vote for marriage equality has started to take place, a silencing is, too, occurring in these debates.
