“I was reading an article in the Daily Telegraph the other day and a Muslim Imam said that
Senator Anna (?) Vale. Liberal MP 13 February 2006.
That is perhaps not an exact quote, but that is what I heard on last nights evening news in a press conference held outside Parliament House with respect to the debate on RU486. After hearing that quote, which is so wrong on so many levels, that I am thinking of packing up and moving to somewhere where politicians don’t carry on like complete idiots. How can anyone seriously stand up and say that. Really, surely there must be some sort of IQ test before a politician can take the oath to serve the country. Between corrupt kickback merchants and complete idiots, this country really is doomed.
So let’s just clarify what Senator Vale is saying here…
1. “I was reading an article in the Daily Telegraph”. She is predicating what she is about to say on the basis of perhaps the closest thing
2. The whole bringing in Muslims into the RU486 debate is just wrong and in these times where the politicians and media seem to be continually sprouting anti-Muslim rhetoric all the time to make us seem like a nation of xenophobic bigots, then this is just horrendous.
3. “The rate that we keep aborting our babies, we will abort ourselves out of existence”. Firstly, by who does she mean “we”. Non-Muslims? Again, racist and bigoted in that “we” are better than “them”. Secondly, does she not realise that the medical procedure for abortion has been around for many many years and that the world still strains under what is now a global population of 6 Billion or thereabouts? Whilst I am not in favour of China’s one baby policy or the fact that Indian’s seemingly abort female babies at a drop of a hat, the fact of the matter is that 100,000 abortions a year in Australia is not the end of the human race… oh hang on, she means “white Anglo-Saxon Christian People”. All those Indian and Chinese don’t count as real people………….
I rest my case.
