We try not to get sidetracked into matters outside intolerance and prejudice. But once in a while we receive something from the political sphere so mind-blowingly ghastly we have to put it up.
Fresh on the terrible news from Norway of the massacre of young Norwegian Socialists by a deranged neo-Nazi comes this latest fashion among the haters – death threats against the Prime Minister.
Death threats related to the carbon tax issue seem to be the fashion amongst the ill-informed, and reports have come in from climate scientists, from journalists and from Professor Ross Garnaut himself about them. Furthermore, if you go back to 1996 and the election, the GST, a tax with far greater impact was introduced by the Coalition after strenuous denials that they would do so. We are hard pressed to remember John Howard receiving any death threats over that.
So enjoy the new trend in Australian politics, and drop Dale a line. He can be found here when he’s not posting death threats over at ‘Australians against illegal immigration’.
