As many of you may be aware, The Project recently invited guest presenter Jamila Rizvi onto the show to discuss the election of Donald Trump. What started out as a friendly discussion quickly turned nasty as the panel turned on their fellow presenter Steve Price. The full video link to which may be found below:

Steve was abruptly cut off and insulted by Jamila on national television, despite his best efforts to lower the outrageous tone being fueled by the guest. Much to the dismay of thousands around the country, his peers joined in to further insult and humiliate Steve, who we all agree had done nothing wrong.  

Steve opened his response stating his view that "Real Americans" from small towns were not buying the "bulldust" that Hillary was selling. This initiated an argument with the guest who seemingly has little regard for neither Steve or the millions of Americans who voted for trump, and effectively said "there is no such thing as ordinary Americans".

However during the following question from Carrie about why she thought Trump won the election, she claimed it was due to the "rising inequality" experienced by, you guessed it, "Ordinary Americans". Not only is this hypocrisy to the maximum, but the fact that she effectively repeated Steve's own point added further salt to the already fresh wound. Steve was silenced for the remainder of the discussion.


In every single facebook post detailing the exchange, the people of Australia have expressed their outrage of the leftist bullying that occurred, coming out in support of the conservative commentator. Nobody, no matter what side of politics they fall on, should have to experience the abuse and degradation of what Steve had to go through on that program.

This is a petition is a call for a public apology, made on national tv by the presenters involved, to recognise that what happened on The Project is unacceptable and should be condemned. Whether you are on the left, right, or somewhere in between, nobody should experience what Steve experienced.
