There is a series of myths, tropes and catch phrases about refugees in Australia writes Emma Norton in Socialist Alternative. They are repeated by politicians and the media to such an extent that they have entered the consciousness of much of the population. The majority are lies and twisted half-truths which serve to justify the inhuman detention regime and further the scapegoating of refugees.
I call bullshit on The Australian and its reporting of climate change and its denial of humanity’s role in it.
