"Calling it how he sees it" doesn't make him right though. The same crowd who are defending Sam Newman get triggered when the likes of Adam Goodes and Heritier Lumumba speak their mind.
It’s an opinion. It’s neither right nor wrong. I know it’s funny how that works but not everyone agrees with everyone on things

Yeah nah, he’s a much better person than you’ll ever be
Ok ! I must be pretty rank if you're putting all your support behind a rank 20 year racist p.o.s. like Newman.
Did you have a big boo from your loungroom today?

Hes given his opinion that its divisive and I agree

Love Sammy
He didn't just give an opinion, he encouraged people to boo....

He essentially wants people to cancel a person's free speech because it upsets him...baby

And divisive is a very subjective word isn't it? The fact that you see a WTC as divisive speaks a lot about the kind of person you are.

Maybe some people do not like to be welcomed to their own country. Maybe it feels like you are being treated like a guest or outsider in your own home. Maybe the basic ideal of living in a modern liberal democracy is we are all equal citizens and nobody should be seen as being part of a special tier above others based on ancestry.

It is possible to think the above AND also think Sam Newman is an idiot and booing the WTC is idiotic.

We should be working towards a principle where someone who has just received their Australian citizenship today is equally as Australian as someone who has 50,000 years of ancestry here.

You can’t be that weak or unsophisticated enough not to think about your own sense of belonging alongside another sense of belonging. Grow up *head
