Hypocrisy from the ABC, a.k.a. the Abbott-Bashing Corporation

Their ABC leans to the Left

Their ABC leans to the Left

It’s not the principle, it’s the side.

A week or so ago, the ABC was jeering that Tony Abbott had scuppered any chance of a last minute reprieve for Bali Nine drug smugglers Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran. Raising the issue of the humanitarian aid for the Indonesian tsunami in 2004 was viewed as a ‘threat’ and had therefore jeopardised any chance of a last minute change of heart.

Today on NewsRadio, the ABC was crowing that the Indonesian President Joko Widodo had told Tony Abbott he wrong to suggest, as he did earlier this week, that Widodo was reconsidering the executions of Chan and Sukumaran.

In the first case, Abbott’s actions had prevented a change of heart by the Indonesians, in the second, a change of heart was never going to happen and Abbott’s made a fool of himself by suggesting otherwise.

Two entirely contradictory positions which only make sense when you understand that the premise of the two stories is solely to make Abbott look dangerous and incompetent.

Proudly brought to you by the ABC: the Abbott-Bashing Corporation.

Hypocrite: Grand Mufti defends free speech… for Hizb ut-Tahrir extremists

Is this the kind of free speech the Grand Mufti has in mind, perhaps?

Is this the kind of free speech the Grand Mufti has in mind, perhaps?

This shows conclusively that Ibrahim Abu-Mohammed, the Grand Mufti of Australia, is a big part of the problem with radical Islam we are facing today, and has no intention of being part of the solution.

The Charlie Hebdo cartoonists were murdered in cold blood for daring to draw images of the Islamic ‘prophet’ and goat-farmer, Muhammad. Not much freedom of speech for those poor victims, right?

Yet today, only a matter of weeks after that particular atrocity, the Grand Mufti has the gall to criticise the likely banning of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia, on the grounds of free speech (at 00:50). HUT is an extremist organisation which seeks to destroy our liberal democracy and impose Islamic sharia law in Australia. It is known for its radicalisation of its members and sedition in Western countries. It’s banned elsewhere, but not here. [Read more…]

Islamic State: ‘Yes, we ARE Islamic, and no, Islam is NOT a religion of peace’

Straight from the horse's mouth…

Straight from the horse’s mouth…

Not my words, but the words of the latest Islamic State magazine, Dabiq.

What kind of filthy Islamophobes are running Islamic State and publishing this kind of hate-filled rhetoric?

Why are they ignoring those learned scholars of Islam, Messrs Obama, Kerry, Cameron (and Abbott) when they say over and over again that Islam is a Religion of Peace™?

Where is Waleed Aly and all the other lefty apologists for Islam to condemn this bigotry and anti-Muslim bile? Can we expect protests around the globe from Muslims against this shocking misrepresentation of the peaceful and beautiful religion of Islam? [Read more…]

Muslim protest scorecard

Not great…

Not great…

Let’s see how the Australian Islamic community’s protests stack up:

  • Protests against the brutal rape of infidel white girls? None
  • Protests against the savage beheading of Western journalists? None
  • Protests against the forced conversion and murder of Christians in Iraq? None
  • Protests against the ‘twisting’ of the Religion of Peace™ by Islamic State? None
  • Protests against the daily preaching of hatred in Middle East mosques? None
  • Protests condemning the plot to behead a kafir in Sydney? None
  • Barbecues to show solidarity with Australia? One – a good start…

And now can we count the number of protests and complaints about ‘Islamophobia’, the inevitable ‘backlash’, ‘victimisation’, demands for special treatment, ‘demonising’, police ‘harassment’, Israel = Nazis, banners proclaiming “behead those who insult the Prophet”, sharia for Australia, etc etc…?

How about these examples for comparison?

  • Number of Facebook pages set up by the Grand Mufti to track instances of radicalisation in Sydney’s mosques? None
  • Number of Facebook pages set up by the Grand Mufti to track instances of ‘Islamophobia’? One.
  • Number of expressions of support for Australian authorities targeting dangerous criminals in Muslim communities? None
  • Number of protests complaining about the police raids? One, organised by the disgraceful Hizb ut-Tahrir, an organisation that should be banned in Australia.

Where are all the so-called moderate Muslims that we’re always hearing about? Why aren’t they taking to the streets to distance themselves from Islamic State? As always, missing in action.
