I'm not a racist...
When someone repeatidly has to answer allegations of being a racist, it is a pretty good sign that they are bigotted.
Today, Andrew Bolt declared "I hate being thought racist or Islamophobic" but the simple reality is, if he stopped writing this kind of crap maybe he wouldn't be accused of being a bigot so much.
So what is Bolt's column about. An un-named colleague visiting an un-named school with lots of arabs and turks behaving badly, and studying arabic.
There were people "of Middle Eastern appearance" bringing down society and forming ghettos.
Stuff it, I might write a story about people "of anglo appearnce" behaving in an anti-social way at Catholic schools. These students would be from white ghettos in middle-suburban melbourne. I'd blame their religion for all societies ills, but confidently declare "In the end, I suspect, we will discover that discipline, rigor, a little prudishness and an optimistic belief in Australia and a respect for its rituals were not so stupid, after all." Yes it is stupid but Bolt seems to get away with it.
Bolt is now in line for the "Stormfront Journalism Award" for columns loved by racist organisations. How long before One Nation put Bolt's latest effort up on their website?
No doubt he will continue this theme during the campaign and declare Labor/Greens/Dems are responsible for all societies ills and the Libs can save us from the dreaded multiculturalists.
