PUT IT THERE JULIA!
... if they disagree we'll just stick "phobic" on the end of it
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.
Xenophobic, homophobic, theophobic, islamophobic, etc and if those stigmatic titles don’t make you back off, there’s the old reliable favourites “racist”, “misogynist” and “bigot”. All are attack words in the armoury of the Left and they sure beat the hell out of constructing a reasoned argument to challenge an alternative view.
Phobia is a fear of something, so I can’t be homophobic (“homo” means “same” and I’m not fearful of the same) that simply doesn’t make sense.
I can’t be Islamophobic because I’m certainly not fearful of Islam. I’d like to ban it and I’d like to bulldoze a few mosques. I’d also like to get hold of a military helicopter (which I’m still licensed to fly) and strafe those bloody Islamic State bastards to kingdom come.
That’s not a phobia is it? It’s more like a blind rage I reckon.
I can’t think of one thing the Left has managed to do successfully, it consistently fails because its heart rules its head. But the Left now finds itself silenced and lost in a fog of ambiguity; things are becoming too complicated for its simplistic ideology and it's interesting watching how it wrestles with some glaring contradictions.
The Left supports women’s rights but remains silent on Islamic genital mutilation and female subjugation.
It supports the global warming mantra but is silent when the Himalayas don’t melt, seas don’t rise, Antarctic ice increases, and temperatures remain the same.
It supports the downtrodden but opposes our attempt to repel the Islamic State.
It denounces Christian paedophilia but is silent on Islamic paedophilia.
Well, I’m a devout atheist (and an agnostic) but at the risk of appearing Islamophobic, here’s the difference between Islamic and Christian paedophilia:
We try to stamp out paedophilia within our Christian institutions while Islam glorifies the vile practice embedded within its Sharia law. Again not a word of protest from the Left.
Christian parishioners don’t march with placards demanding the right to practise paedophilia but Islamic adherents march to protest their right to practise despicable Sharia law in which paedophilia is embedded.
Christian parishioners don’t protest in our streets demanding we adopt Christianity under the threat of decapitation. Is this not so, or am I missing something here?
I see the Hillsong Church suffering exposure in the Royal Commission, but not the Lakemba Mosque.
I see Cardinal George Pell publicly disgraced but not Sheikh Hilalay.
Christ said a lot of good things but he also said some bloody stupid things like, “the meek shall inherit the earth”.
That’s not the way it works... are you listening Tony Abbott?
