Speedo is unelectable!

Al Age

OPPOSITION Leader Tony Abbott has been forced (“forced?” By whom?) to dissociate himself from controversial remarks by his shadow parliamentary secretary Cory Bernardi, who said he was ”against Islam”.

”There are Islamic extremists just as there are other extremists that are a problem in a tolerant and pluralistic society. In suggesting that Islam itself is the problem, Cory does not represent my views.”

You know you are lying Tony. We don’t have a problem with “extremists”. The world has a problem with Islam!

‘Islam is a totalitarian political and religious ideology’, Australian senator Cory Bernardi

He forgot to mention ‘genocidal’.

Senator Bernardi, one of the party’s most prominent rightwingers, said on radio that, in the past decade or two, there had been ”an increasing indulgence of people who are pursuing an ideology and a values system that is at complete odds with Western society and with Western culture”. If he said he was against Islam, Senator Bernardi said, ”I’m called a racist or a bigot.”

Asked whether Mr Abbott had tried to stop him from expressing his views, Senator Bernardi said: “He certainly hasn’t”.

He said that “Islam is the problem – it’s not Muslims. Muslims are individuals that practise their faith in their own way. But Islam is a totalitarian political and religious ideology. It tells people everything about how they need to conduct themselves, who they are allowed to marry and how they are allowed to treat other people.”

Mr Abbott said last night: ”There are Islamic extremists just as there are other extremists that are a problem in a tolerant and pluralistic society. In suggesting that Islam itself is the problem, Cory does not represent my views.”

No one in his right mind can vote for  this jelly bean. What do you believe in, Tony?

The latest embarrassment follows a damaging week for the opposition, which started with a furore over comments from its immigration spokesman Scott Morrison objecting to the government flying relatives from Christmas Island to Sydney for the funerals of asylum seekers who drowned late last year.

This was followed by a leak alleging Mr Morrison had suggested at a shadow cabinet meeting that the opposition capitalise on public sentiment against Muslim immigration.



Funny how no one says Japan needs to become a melting pot/multicult. No one says China, Africa, Korea, Taiwan, Mexico, Haiti, Saudi Arabia, should be deluged with massive random, foreign populations to demonstrate how “moral” they are, or to enrich their sorely lacking culture.

So what is it, that is so special about all white countries, even the crushingly poor ones like those in Eastern Europe, that they and only they, must become melting pots/multi cultural?

Can someone from the Labor Party, please explain it?

Update 2:

Over at the Muslim Pillagers blog they’re playing the old Saul Alinsky game: single out and destroy…..

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

Abbott: I’m such a sucker for a hug!

So sorry that they showed it again

Channel 7’s Mark Riley went out of his way to ambush Tony Abbott and get this “foregiveness” shot to avert some of the furious public criticism he was getting over his deceptive “shit happens” sliming of the Opposition Leader:

The Seven journalist, who has received hundreds of abusive emails and phone calls and been vilified on social media and blog sites, said it was time to draw a line under the incident.
TONY Abbott and Seven Network political editor Mark Riley have kissed and made up, putting behind them the controversy over the Opposition Leader’s “shit happens” remark….

Riley badly needed that embrace, and I’ve castigated Abbott for his excessive Christianity in forgiving without demanding an apology.

Turns out I was right not to trust Riley an inch. Far from being apologetic, his network is now running promos for its news service which star Riley and footage of his same disgraceful “shit happens” stitch-up.

Beyond slimy.

  1. It was Abbott and his “Australians for honest politics” that took down Hanson and One Nation and it was the Libs under Fraser that let all the Muslims in at the first place.

  2. Abbott has no hope of winning in his own right. For the Libs to win, they need Peter Costello.
    Australia’s enemies are not in Afghanistan or Iraq, but right here in our own backyard. They came here by hook or by crook to exploit our system. They are growing at an alarming rate and are invading our country under the guise as refugees. Every mosque is a stockpile for arms and ammunition. Muslims are preparing to take over our country from within. Our military are handicapped in the cities and all that separates them from civilians is their uniforms. Our military should be armed at all times and should be ready to suppress any aggressive behaviour from the muslims within. Our Police force are toothless and have been made so by our politicians. We will be at the mercy of muslims when they rise to take control if we leave ourselves unprepared.

  3. “When you hear ‘racist!’ now, you know some coward is once again just trying to shut a debate he fears he can’t win. “

    Two common variations on that tactic are accusations of incitement or complaining loudly about fears of a “backlash.” There has emerged a standard operating procedure: Deflect attention, and silence the discussion by claiming victim status.

    And so it also happens in Australia, which is feeling the ripple effect of European declarations of the failure of multiculturalism. One detects a certain sense of relief in those countries that it is finally politically permissible to point out the elephant in the room — though some have done so for years, to those same cries of “racism” and “hatred,” and at the risk of their lives and livelihoods.

    “Muslim integration the real problem,” by Andrew Bolt for the Herald Sun, February 19:

    When you hear “racist!’ now, you know some coward is once again just trying to shut a debate he fears he can’t win.
    No one who knows the Opposition’s immigration spokesman, Scott Morrison, would dream he’s racist, as so many commentators now imply.
    His real offence is that in shadow cabinet he suggested the Coalition tackle an issue of growing public concern before it turned even uglier.
    That issue is Muslim integration. And add now the Gillard Government’s new defence of multiculturalism, a policy to fund what divides us that the leaders of France, England and Germany say has failed in their countries.
    What broke multiculturalism there is also killing it here. That we have trouble integrating our 400,000 Muslims is beyond question, even if it’s also true that most make fine citizens.
    Here are some statistics from a minority that’s actually smaller than our Buddhist one. Muslims here are more than twice as likely as the rest of us to be without work. Their children are twice as likely to be jobless, and three times more likely to be poor.
    Their imprisonment rates are higher, and all 20 of the people we’ve jailed on terrorism-related offences are Muslim.
    The reassurances offered by Muslim leaders are rarely much comfort.
    Take Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, for many years Mufti of Australia, despite praising suicide bombers as “heroes” and calling the September 11 attacks “God’s work against oppressors”.
    Hilali this week played down Muslim terrorism here by telling The Australian’s Sally Neighbour: “There are people who have the mindset to commit harm, but no one has the capacity to execute anything.”
    As long as we keep catching them, we’re safe. But the bigger this community gets, the bigger the threat.
    As the Labor Government admits in its own 2010 White Paper on terrorism: “The scale of the problem will continue to depend on factors such as the size and make-up of local Muslim populations.”
    So with the number of Muslims here projected to increase by 80 per cent by 2030, any party that won’t discuss immigration betrays its duty to preserve harmony and public safety.
    And any party that thinks the answer is just more multicultural tribalism is a fool.
    One lawmaker proposed putting the brakes on Muslim immigration in the past week, and received a familiar response (thanks to Dumbledoresarmy). The senator who simply allowed the inclusion of the bill for discussion found himself having to defend his decision, on the grounds of free speech.


    Shocker: Australian senator gets death threats for criticism of Islam as a “totalitarian, political and religious ideology”

    Once again, the argument amounts to: “say Islam is a Religion of Peace, or we’ll kill you.” It is worth recalling that slander (ghiba) in Islam refers to things that may well be true, but that a person does not want known or spoken of:

    Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike, whether about his body, religion, everyday life, self, disposition, property, son, father, wife, servant, turban, garment, gait, movements, smiling, dissoluteness, frowning, cheerfulness, or anything else connected with him” (Umdat al-Salik, r2.2).
    Such a mindset only makes it more difficult to accept criticism (let alone satire). So much the worse when some uppity unbeliever “goes there.” “Islam’s the problems, not Muslims, says Senator Cory Bernardi,” by Michael Harvey and Steve Lewis for the Herald Sun, February 19 (thanks toJW):

    Tony Abbott’s official frontbench understudy has reignited immigration tensions by denouncing Islam as a “totalitarian, political and religious ideology”.
    Liberal parliamentary secretary Cory Bernardi revealed last night he had received death threats after making the comments.
    While the immigration debate usually differentiates between the religion of Islam and extreme fundamentalist interpretations, Senator Bernardi confronted the issue head-on yesterday.
    “Islam itself is the problem – it’s not Muslims,” he told radio station MTR.
    “Muslims are individuals that practise their faith in their own way, but Islam is a totalitarian, political and religious ideology.
    “It tells people everything about how they need to conduct themselves, who they’re allowed to marry and how they’re allowed to treat other people.”
    Senator Bernardi said Islam had “not moved on” since it was founded and that extremists wanted fundamentalist Islamic rule implemented in Australia.
    The senator also inflamed the row over funeral expenses for asylum-seekers by declaring that it was “wrong” for taxpayers to foot the bill.
    The remarks provoked a strong reaction from Ikebal Patel, president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, who said Senator Bernardi had “crossed the line” with his attack on Islam.
    “These comments are more than offensive; they are bigoted,” Mr Patel said.
    “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.”

    No, it’s not the language of a dhimmi who can’t speak his mind out of fear. Islam’s own texts have been saying Christianity and Judaism are the problem, and worthy of subjugation and war for almost 14 centuries. By Patel’s reasoning, was Muhammad not religious?

  4. Its interesting to read that a ‘Muslim Community leader” is deferring to the Christian Bible for Moral Guidance.
    I cannot imagine any of the worlds 5/6 ths. of the earths population who have rejected outright the edicts contained in the Islamic Koran, urging that we deferre to the Koran for Moral Guidance.

    Not even Mr Patel could reference one of the Satanic Verses that could further his cults propaganda and make his point, I guess the less exposure the Koran receives the longer the lie of Islam will survive.

    1. Aussie, I should remind you that they know much more about us than we know about them.

      They believe that Christians are weak fools and he wants to make sure that you know your place as a dhimmi.

  5. “They believe that Christians are weak fools and he wants to make sure that you know your place as a dhimmi.”

    ….and there is no shortage of useful idiots in the various progressive Christian Churches willing to oblige .
