DINING WITH THE DEVIL AND 18C
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.
A meeting between Tony Abbott as Prime Minister and leaders of the Islamic community (some of whom had refused to attend) involved discussions around how the repealing of 18C would cause Muslims to be racially vilified. Another discussion on a phone link between Abbott and security Agencies and police demanded that 18C be retained so that these agencies could acquire information about so-called “radicalised” Islamic youth. The Greens and two Senate cross-benchers also put their case for retention of 18C on similar grounds that included Aborigines and the gay community.
Tony Abbott then informed a Cabinet meeting that he would not be pushing for an alteration to the Act. He didn't tell us 'tho... he waited until he was asked.
When Malcolm Turnbull was questioned as to why the Libs had discarded the plan, he gave the same answer Tony Abbott eventually gave, which was basically, “We have more important things to do”.
PM Turnbull included this addendum: “Repealing 18C will not produce one more job.”
It’s amazing what a few phone calls can uncover because it had me stuffed why such puerile excuses could be given for welching on such a serious undertaking as repealing 18C.
Abbott and Turnbull are standing firm despite Aussies being seriously hurt by the HRC’s implementation of the vile Act. Mounting pressure to honour the Government’s repeal of 18C commitment is being ignored.
Unfortunately the security Agencies and police are also standing firm, and their bullshit case is predicated on bullshit blackmail pushed by bullshitting Islamic leaders. They don't want nasty things said about their un-Australian cult of Islam.
Was Turnbull pressured not to abolish 18C by that irritating bastard Waleed Aly at his Kirribilli Iftar dinner replete with a known hate preacher?
To believe that Muslim parents will dob in their “radical” sons and daughters requires a special kind of woolly thinking reserved for people like Julie Bishop and lazy cops and Security Agency sleuths who like to skite about foiling acts of terrorism that never really existed.
What a shame that our Government feels it’s more important to assuage possible Islamic hurt “feelings” rather than right the terrible wrongs committed on innocent Aussies by evil Commissioners like Gillian Triggs and Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Southphommasane (below 2nd from right).
The Libs’ Left actually believes that Islamic parents will snitch on their kids who are showing dangerous signs of following the blessed Koran. Doesn’t the Left know that parents of martyred kids get a straight-to-Paradise free pass.
Parents of martyrs proudly display their kid’s photo to other Muslims who drool with jealousy.
Dob in their kids who are religiously following the Holy Koran’s teachings?... WTF are they talking about?
Anyway if you were wondering why the promised repeal of 18C has been canned, it’s because this Government (in fact this Parliament) cares passionately for whining Muslims and couldn’t give a stuff about victimised Aussies.
Hmmm, no wonder they insisted that we give them our bloody guns!
