CATS AND DOGS
What’s the difference between a victim-blaming Islamic grand super exalted mega mufti and a victim-blaming Abbott-allergic ABC favourite?
About 11 years. Here’s Sheik Taj El-Din Hamid Hilaly in 2006, blaming women for being raped:
If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside, without cover, and the cats come to eat it, whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat’s? The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.
And here’s frequent ABC invitee Paula Matthewson in 2017, blaming Tony Abbott for getting headbutted:
Think of a man who digs a pit and fills it with ravenous dogs. He is responsible if anyone falls into that pit & gets mauled. If it is him who falls into the pit, he is still responsible for the mauling.
Matthewson even has a similar tone and cadence to old Sheik Hilaly, not to mention their shared fondness for peculiar animal metaphors.
