Australian Federal Police censors senator’s comment criticising homosexual flag post: ‘Your job is to enforce the law’

The Australian Federal Police has deleted a comment made by an elected representative of the people it is sworn to serve criticising a post showing the organisation espousing far-left gender ideology.

The AFP on Friday posted photos and video of members raising “progress pride flags” at its Canberra headquarters, and United Australia Party Senator Ralph Babet wrote in response: “Your job is to enforce the law. It is not to push the LGBTQIA2S+”.

But soon afterwards the senator’s comment was removed along with dozens of others, after the AFP said “we will not tolerate offensive, homophobic or transphobic comments, if posted they will be removed”.

As of the time of writing, Noticer News was only able to view a handful of the 230 comments on the post, which showed AFP members in uniform raising a homosexual flag for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).

“The AFP embraces diversity and inclusion, recognising how unique experiences and backgrounds adds value to the workplace,” the AFP wrote.

“Today, and every day, we are proud to celebrate diversity and inclusion, and our goal is for everyone to feel safe, connected and respected.”

Most of the remaining comments were complaints about the deletions, along with one saying “I wanted to become a cop until…” and another which read “So, where’s the Australian flag?” and a couple in support of the federal police.

“Fabulous, well done AFP. You’re on the right side of history. A police force for ALL Australians,” said one.

According to the AFP website, one of the force’s values is “fairness”, which it defines as “being impartial and equitable”.

“We demonstrate fairness when we apply anti-discrimination, fairness and equity principles in our daily work, don’t act from malice, prejudice or personal bias when making decisions, approach people and issues with tolerance and an open mind,” the AFP states.

The website also contains a radical left “acknowledgment of country” using the ahistorical term “First Nations” to refer to Aboriginal people, and features a dot painting which is supposed to represent the AFP’s “commitment to reconciliation”.

Noticer News contacted Senator Babet and the AFP for comment.
