“I’VE FORGOTTEN HER LAST NAME”,
said Andrew Bolt, as he invited Kirralie Smith to discuss Easter
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Well, I guess “Smith” is an unusually difficult name to recall. But Bolt was determined to show his true colours as a defender of his own private realm of conservatism. “What proof do you have that mosques secrete caches of arms?”, he asked. Bolt was using a typical Left wing tactic where the interviewee has no chance to recover research that leads to a definitive answer. Of course mosques both here and around the world secrete arms, there is ample proof of that despite the fact police are rarely granted a warrant to search any mosque.
The fact that Kirralie has now joined Corey Bernardi’s Conservatives seemed to irk Bolt who also suggested, contrary to Kirralie’s claim, that the word Easter was still displayed widely at supermarkets. He should crawl out from his underground Catholic bunker for long enough to see the words “Christmas” and “Easter” are slowly disappearing from festive advertising around the world.
Cadbury’s, who pays the Islamic halal certification scamsters, has suffered market loss as a result, yet is still determined to appease Islamic pressure groups with the severance of Christian links.
The Pagan Goddess Eostre, by Witchemma
Bolt then went on to claim there was no hindrance to Australians celebrating the wonderful Christian festivity of Easter...the fabled ascension of Christ into heaven after having been crucified.
Well, it is Bolt who should be employing a full-time researcher, because Easter is not a Christian festivity. It is a Pagan celebration of the northern hemisphere Spring equinox, fecundity... a festivity of fertility and abundant reproduction represented by a Rabbit and fertility by an egg.
The Pagan Goddess Eostre (aka Eastre) from which was derived the name of the female hormone, Oestrogen was as much a part of Pagan seasonal rituals as was Saint Nicholas (aka Santa Claus) representative of Christmas and its mid-winter festival.
After Christians had burnt most Pagans at the stake for heresy, they promptly clung to their popular festivities as representing Christ. Of course they have nothing to do with Christ, but hey, Mr Bolt, who needs accuracy when you have the final say on your own TV show?
Asians still celebrate Easter as it was originally intended
Giant papier mache dongers and gaping vaginas were also part of the festivities but Christian probity settled for the rabbit and egg.
Kirralie Smith is one of the smartest ladies I know and she will be an adornment to any conservative Party she chooses to belong to. Bolt’s handling of an interview with her last night was amateurish and ashamedly shabby.
Bolt’s claim on his own private brand of conservatism is tenuous at best and he is becoming tiresome with his righteous defence of Cardinal Pell and his love/hate affair with Turnbull.
He is no longer the light of conservative devotees and he is no longer on my and many others’ must watch list.
I and my family will always celebrate Easter and Christmas no matter what the origins are and no matter what the Muslims direct me to do.
Bolt has degenerated to the proverbial pain in the arse.
