Offence VS Freedom Of Speech.

ramio1983

Australian Sports presenter/journalist Scott Mcintyre recently got sacked by his Television Network SBS for making some “offensive remarks” about ANZAC soldiers and general comments about World Wars 1 and 2. The Journalist took to his Twitter account to make a series of tweets that were Anti-War, Anti Anzac Day and Anti glorification- voicing an opinion that is controversially “different” to the general take on the Australian and New Zealand war Veterans and their roles not only in Gallipoli, Turkey but numerous other locations during International war campaigns.

The Australian Channel SBS is known for its “diverse” and “alternative” take on news and current affairs and it is a channel that prides itself from presenting –other than– mainstream views on a variety of topics. Some people saw his sacking as justified whilst others have pulled into question the supposed freedoms of “Freedom Of Speech”.

People that know me might notice…

Liz Geyer: “We are the true ANZAC’s (sic), not them.”

 

Liz Geyer is a very proud Strayan, with some very probing questions.

Okay.  Let’s start at the beginning.

“This one is for my fellow ANZAC’s. (sic)

You’re not an ANZAC and nor is anyone else on Facebook.  The last ANZAC passed away over a decade ago.

“How many Muslims have you seen singing our National Anthems?”

National anthems?  Plural?

If you mean ‘Advance Australia Fair’, here’s one example.

For the most part, though, how do you tell?  Perhaps you can get a crowd shot from a major sporting match where the anthem is played, and go through it and tell us which people in the crowd are Muslim and which are non-Muslim.  And explain how you can discern this based on just looking at someone.  Please.

“How many Muslims have you seen waving our flags or having our national icons painted on their faces?”

This kind of thing, you mean?

“How many Muslims have you seen attending ANZAC Day?”

How would you know what religion the people in the crowd were?  Or, for that matter, in the parade itself?

In July 2013 there were 88 Muslims serving in the ADF, so it stands to reason that some of them might well have marched in the parade on ANZAC Day in the past, and may do so again this year.

“How many Muslims have you seen wearing a Poppy to commemorate the fallen?”

Quite a few, actually. 

There are probably many who don’t, as well.  Along with many non-Muslims who don’t.

“How many Muslims have you seen donating money or food to national emergencies or charities?”

Do you mean like when the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, part of the United Arab Emirates, donated $30 million to the state of Queensland to build cyclone shelters, such as this one at a high school in Yeppoon?

Or when the Muslim Charitable Foundation (MCF) donated pallets of gyprock to repair 50-60 flood damaged homes in Ipswich and, together with the Queensland Muslim Welfare Association, delivered two truckloads of clothing and linen to flood victims?

Perhaps when Islamic Relief collected sleeping bags for those who had lost their homes in bushfires, or when Lakemba Mosque raised $26,000 in a single Friday night for Brisbane flood victims?

Like that, Liz?

“If you answered none to all of those then you are correct.”

Well this is awkward.  Let’s see if we can provide a quick correction:

If you answered none to all of those then you are correct an ignoramus.

“They claim to be citizens like us, some were even born here, but, they demand more rights than us, more freedom than us, more allowance than us, more, more, more, more.”

Uh, no.

“If we are all citizens as they claim, then why should they demand more, what right do they have to do so?”

Citation needed.

“The difference is, they can act like us, but we ARE us.”

Er… what?

“We are the true ANZAC’s (sic), not them. No Islamist will be an ANZAC citizen.
Not then, not now, not EVER!”

A citizen of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps of WWI?  lolwhut?

Liz, you are not an ANZAC.  You’re just someone typing away on Facebook, trying to assume the voice of long dead soldiers to push your own views, which is pretty disgusting.  You don’t speak for dead soldiers.

Seeing as you present yourself as such a parochial halfwit proud Australian citizen you should probably invest some time in actually understanding the military history of the country you claim to defend and the terms that relate to that history.

 

 

 

 

 

The ADL trashes Australian values on ANZAC Day

Australians everywhere from all backgrounds are commemorating Anzac Day. Many have attended Dawn Services and marches. Some will be quietly gathering with friends and family at home. Some will be reading and reflecting on our history and remembering the men and women who died serving their country.

This year the contribution of Indigenous soldiers is being remembered and highlighted. The terrible toll of PTSD on our veterans young and old has also been examined by former serving soldiers like Major General Peter Cosgrove and by researchers, psychiatrists and psychologists.

However as usual we have come across a rabble who would rather spend the day hating other Australians.

Just take a look at this.

We are wondering where exactly Wayne Krug served. Behind the counter at Maccas?

No decent ADF veteran would have a bar of the ADL.

We are also wondering where these clowns get the notion that “Anzac related materials” are being sold anywhere.

The word ANZAC and its derivatives and imagery are copyright protected by legislation.

Each September that admirable organisation Legacy use an army of service personnel and volunteers from schools, youth organisations and service clubs to sell badges and pens which raise money for its work with the families of veterans ( WA has its badge day in April each year).

You will also find some retailers are selling rosemary sprigs, poppy badges and other small mementoes around Anzac Day. None of them have been attacked by anyone – unless the ADL are doing it.

You will also find amongst those volunteers Muslim students and soldiers.

But the rubbish continues
