Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



A Fairfax picture paints a thousand racist agendas

Fairfax ‘media’ posted a photo of a terrorist on its front page. It turns out he is an innocent man from an Afghan background whose relative or relatives have been killed by the Taliban was killed by the Taliban.

Why let truth stand in the way of a good dose of fear mongering and hate speech by the capitalist media? The wider point is that almost everything we are reading about ‘terror Australis’ is bullshit from Team Australia and the compliant media to further a particular goal – to unite us with the warmongers, racists and Islamophobes in yet another blood soaked certainly doomed adventure in the Middle East.

It may also be a temporary distraction from the economic terrorism the Abbott government has unleashed on us.

A picture paints a thousand hysterical, racist and reactionary agendas.

Or maybe they just made a mistake and might pay for it in defamation compensation.

Maybe, but given the haste to publish terrorist stories why bother checking? Hysteria reduces the capacity of the mind to make proper judgements. Promoting it seems to have the same effect.

Why are our pollies so gutless ?
