A TERRORISM EVENT “LIKELY” OVER XMAS
...golly, these Presbyterians are a worry
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.
It appears those pesky Presbyterians might be cooking something up for Christmas dinner. It’s an ominous Christmas message from Tony Abbott but it may well be ASIO’s way of covering all bases before getting legless during the season of good will to all men.
Again Tony’s skill in avoiding the word Presbyterian was remarkable. “There are people out there who want to do us harm”, said Tony. "There are people out there we know with the intent and the capability to carry out further attacks."
No shit Sherlock! I wonder who they could possibly be?
Go on Tony, give us a clue, it’s handy to know who we should be looking out for... could it be people with back-to-front collars carrying bibles and singing Christmas carols maybe?
Perhaps we should be looking out for men in long robes waving gold crosses and screaming nasty passages from the Lord’s Prayer.
If groups of men with blue handlebar moustaches try to attack you and shoot your dog each time you leave your home, surely you would be entitled to warn the neighbours of men with blue handlebar moustaches.
If a group of bikies try to sell your kids drugs on the way home from school each day, surely you would be forgiven for naming the offenders as bikies when reporting the matter to the police.
If a bunch of blokes in white dresses and pointy white hats decide to burn 12 foot high crosses on your front lawn, would it be discriminatory to suggest they might be Ku Klux Klan?
If dozens of skinheads in brown shirts with swastikas were seen herding Jews into home-made gas chambers, would it be racist to describe them to authorities as Nazis? No?
So what’s the problem naming these pesky Presbyterians?
