Speedo is a wimp:
Cory Bernardi gets death threats because he tells the truth about Islam and his cowardly Â colleagues withdraw their support.
This cannot stand.
Please send a Â letter or e-mail to Cory Bernardi,<email@example.com>Â Â he needs Â our support. Likewise, you should sent a Tony Abbott a message to lay off.
OPPOSITION Leader Tony Abbott slapped down an outspoken Liberal frontbencher last night for anti-Islam comments that ignited another storm of controversy.
Mr Abbott distanced himself from the comments of frontbencher Cory Bernardi, who said he had been targeted with death threats after speaking against multiculturalism and extremist Muslims. The South Australian senator last night said he had referred to the Australian Federal Police a series of death threats, including an email a few weeks ago that said: “I hope people put a bullet through your brain.”
But it didn’t stop Mr Bernardi yesterday launching a fiery broadside on radio, declaring: “Islam itself is the problem.” Late last night Mr Abbott was quick to distance himself and the party from Mr Bernardi.
“There are Islamic extremists just as there are other extremists that are a problem in a tolerant and pluralistic society,” Mr Abbott said.
“In suggesting that Islam itself is the problem, Cory does not represent my views or those of the Coalition.”
Mr Bernardi, Opposition Parliamentary Secretary for Supporting Families, also said multiculturalism had failed.
“I do reject it. They say multiculturalism works but so many Australians have concerns about isolation of Islam. Whilst we can always fix the balance sheet given enough time, you cannot fix a cultural balance sheet when the excesses have gone too far,” he said.
Earlier in the day Mr Bernardi said Mr Abbott had not tried to stop his public outburst when he had defended Opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison’s comments that questioned the taxpayer cost of funerals for asylum seekers killed in the Christmas Island tragedy.
The Australian Federation of Islamic Council’s president Ikebal Patel said Mr Bernardi had “crossed the line”. “These comments are more than offensive – they are bigoted,” Mr Patel said.
Mohammedans are the most bigoted miscreants on the face of the earth. Once again, we see the arrogant Mohammedan invader telling the Dhimmi to know his place:
“Cory Bernardi needs to have a good read of the Bible if he is a practising Christian. This is hardly the language of a religious person.”
While Mr Morrison later partially backed down by describing his timing as “insensitive”, Mr Bernardi said: “I think it’s the wrong thing to do, it sends a bad message to the taxpayers of Australia – that’s a personal view.”
