A TV DILEMMA
... Q&A versus Willams' bum
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.
Thought I’d grab my bottle of Mylanta and risk a trip to the dark side last night to see if Q&A had improved. Leaving the swear jar handy, the family quickly disappeared as I braced myself for that hideous Jones smirk.
Yep the smirk was still there all right and to its left was a bloke called Jack Charles (or was it Charles Jack) a self-anointed Aboriginal elder fresh out of the “nick” for burglary. It appeared he was there solely to voice his opinion on the Goodes’ war dance.
“Australia itself is uniquely racist against Aboriginal Australians”, he said. “That’s my observation. That’s the observation of many Aboriginals (Aborigines) in Australia. And that’s how it is. It’s a long journey for us to undertake. Get used to it.”
Everyone agreed that Goodes should be honoured for celebrating a racist “war dance” which was directed at opposing Carlton supporters. Hmmm, it seemed like nothing had improved down at the self-indulgent, overpaid ABC.
The swear jar was filling fast as the token Islamic grub, Waleed Ali, was agreeably quoted by Jones as saying that returning Jihadist fighters should be appointed by the Government to explain to misguided Australian Muslim youth, who are trembling with excitement at the prospect of beheading blokes and raping women and children, that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
Maybe while we’re at it we could get Ivan Milat on a lecture circuit to convince schoolchildren that murdering backpackers creates only a temporary high. Or get George Pell to convince the priesthood that paedophilia might have Pearly Gate implications? I mean, WTF?
After 15 minutes of this lunacy I only have enough money left for a packet of drum tomorrow, I’m already on my second bottle of Mylanta and Serena Williams’ bum is starting to look sort of okay.
I swear one day I’ll get to see the end of that show.
