More than 180 complaints against Welsh Conservative leader Nick Bourne's blog criticism of the British National Party (BNP) have been officially rejected.
Nick Bourne said it was a "victory for common sense"
The Mid and West Wales AM was cleared by a Welsh assembly standards committee inquiry after a post in February.
More than 180 complaints were registered about the comments.
Mr Bourne, who believed the complaints were politically orchestrated, called it a "victory for common sense and a victory for the right of free speech".
"I stand by every word I made about this organisation and its supporters. I have no intention of apologising for making them.
"I am delighted that the standards committee rejected these complaints out of hand.
"To condemn the language I used against this organisation would have sent out totally the wrong message from the National Assembly.
"I believe the National Assembly has today sent out a strong message that it will not tolerate such prejudice as we seek to build a fair and tolerant society."
During the recent assembly election campaign Mr Bourne joined a cross-party campaign to promote tolerance and diversity in Wales.
AMs and candidates backed the Wales Friends of Searchlight's Hope not Hate campaign against discrimination.
