The hole she dug for herself is deep enough to bury her, but ABC-tards are bitter clingers when it comes to African cultural enrichment:
Yassmin Abdel-Magied has lost her little ABC gig – but may be offered a new tax-funded job.
SHOW GOES, YASSMIN STAYS
Tim Blair, The Daily Telegraph
A “sweeping restructure” is apparently to blame:
The ABC is axing the program hosted by Yassmin Abdel-Magied a month after the television presenter and activist sparked outrage over her Anzac Day comments.
Australia Wide is set to be shelved in the coming weeks as part of the national broadcaster’s sweeping restructure. As well as programming changes, as many as 200 jobs are being slashed in order to reinvest $50 million a year back into regional and online content.
But Yassmin fans shouldn’t despair:
The ABC is discussing future opportunities with Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied, despite axing the show she hosts.
Abdel-Mageid recorded 7 months before Anzac Day, “If I (rubbished) the Anzacs & Gallipoli I would get crucified”
“… I don’t know, like I feel like sometimes people get annoyed if you
want to claim anything for yourself or want to say well actually something is sacred umm… and then, and, but I’m not able to take it the other way around. So if I went around saying well, the ANZACS were kinda rubbish, you know like Gallipoli, what is that, I would get crucified. I mean look at me, I’m a brown Muslim woman. Like imagine if I went around hating on Gallipoli? People would die. I would, like, but… anything that is deem… that I deem as sacred, is fair game..”
And a tremendous debt of gratitude to Seeker of Truth for pointing out the location and contents of that recording.
An ABC spokeswoman told The Guardian the show’s been canned as part of a restructure. “ABC News is changing how we deliver long-form local journalism in order to better match our audience’s needs,” the spokeswoman said.
They have a long way to go.
