Today the Sydney Morning Herald published yet another article by their Islamic poster boy Waleed Aly. The comment preceding the post on facebook said, “This isn’t really a conversation about Islam. It’s too transparent politically, and theologically illiterate – for that. The more interesting story here is one of a collapsing brand of politics.”
If you take all the bad things out of Islam, there’s very little left but a few pages of a now-meaningless Koran and clearly Abbott hasn’t read it anyway. Reform Islam? What a bloody stupid suggestion!
In George Orwell's dystopian story 1984, the central character Winston Smith is a member of the Outer Party who works in the Ministry of Truth rewriting past news articles. The narrative is set in Airstrip One (once Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania.
PM Turnbull continues to throw billions of our hard-earned at his favourite bureaucracies including the global-warming hoax, the ABC, and the CSIRO, each of which was marginally defunded under Abbott. But not a word of protest from the ABC or Fairfax about Turnbull’s complete lack of funding.
Not since Gillard has an assassin of a first term PM had such unqualified adoration of media. But was it due to their love of the Left-leaning Turnbull or their incandescent hatred of Abbott? Throw an unelectable Shorten into the mix and the rich bloke from Point Piper becomes an instant reason for Christmas cheer.
Tashfeen Malik, Islamic devotee and wife of Syed Farook, pledged allegiance to ISIS’s commander Al Baghdadi during the massacre at a function centre in San Bernardino, California. It was she who appeared to have been directing the slaughter of her husband’s work mates, as both sprayed the function centre with bullets, killing 14 before meeting their own grisly deaths.
The word “radicalised” has been injected into the Islam debate specifically to distance the “good” Muslim from the “bad” one. How often does the apologist for Islam say, “... don’t be silly, I have lovely Muslim friends”? Yesterday’s slaughter was just another instance of Islamic terrorism that proves you can only be a friend of a Muslim if you too are a Muslim. Islam can never be trusted in the same way as other forms of faith.
An open vote in the House of Commons is likely to pave the way for the Brits to join Russia in bombing ISIS. Labour’s Socialist Left Leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced into allowing his Party a free vote which looks like going against him in a 12 hour marathon debate. PM Cameron could begin bombing in Syria within hours of the vote.
If Abbott hung on too long to Speaker Bronwyn Bishop, who spent $5,000 on a helicopter getting to a Party fundraiser, then Deputy Leader Bishop’s extravagant spend of $30,000 on a RAAF jet for the same reason means her time is already well and truly up. But stand by to witness more of media’s blatant bias and Turnbull’s lack of mettle.
The short answer is, “What drugs are you on?” But the long answer is more interesting and it doesn’t make the method of his execution any more palatable than Gillard’s execution of Rudd and it exposes the venomous vixens that still lurk the halls of power.
The liberals’ Josh Frydenberg, in an emotional fit of honesty, declared that Grand Mufti, Ibrahim abu Mohammed, had let his Muslim followers down by suggesting, among some other nasty things, that the Paris massacre was at least partly due to Islamophobia.
