A message from Mark Steyn

James Paterson writes from Australia’s Institute for Public Affairs with news that Andrew Bolt, Australia’s most prominent conservative columnist, is currently being prosecuted under appallingly restrictive racial tolerance laws. Mark Steyn recorded this special message for an event held by the IPA in Australia to defend free speech.

Andrew Bolt comments:”[O]f all that was said on the night and sent, Mark Steyn’s contribution was the one that brought down the house. I confess to being in awe of it — not just because I appreciate the compliment of having it come from probably the most brilliant columnist in the English-speaking world, but because it’s such a tremendous piece of writing.” Bolt also links to these comments by one of the featured speakers at the event.
