Australian Leftist PM Doesn’t Like Memes of Himself – And He’s Getting the Government Involved

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese apparently isn’t a fan of memes, especially when they are poking fun at him.

The Labor Party Leader recently said that his government has begun to remove social media posts that contain his face superimposed on other images. 

He claims that “social media platforms have a responsibility to make sure that misinformation isn’t got out there.”

Needless to say, the Anthony Albanese memes were flowing on X after that statement.

Even X Owner and self-proclaimed “Chief Troll Officer” Elon Musk weighed in on the topic of Australian censorship. His comment was in response to Australia censoring X posts concerning a stabbing at a church in Sydney earlier this month.

“Our concern is that if ANY country is allowed to censor content for ALL countries, which is what the Australian ‘eSafety Commissar’ is demanding, then what is to stop any country from controlling the entire Internet? We have already censored the content in question for Australia, pending legal appeal, and it is stored only on servers in the USA.”

Has Australia’s government gone too far? Should they be able to censor online content? The Constitution of Australia does not specifically protect the freedom of speech or expression.

  1. This is great. They elected a leftist…so you get censorship, right? No one can deny that. I can’t wait for Aussies to start lengthy prison sentences for memes.
    Hilarity is ensuing!
