The Byron Shire Echo’s Bob Ellis is a little sad and reflective this week following Bob Carr’s resignation as NSW Premier (Carr is one of few successful politicians for whom Ellis has worked). But he quickly returns to his usual happy level of butter-headed misanalysis:
Terrorism in Britain these last thirty years has killed fewer people than Dr Harold Shipton, and we are still not shooting tall, bearded doctors on sight.
We might, if they began swarming over trains and blowing themselves up. (Incidentally, the doctor’s name was Shipman.)
We still keep Mein Kampf on the shelves of suburban and country town libraries, but won’t let a Muslim cleric say what he’s supposed to say, that the values of the West are sinful, abominable, atrocious and stink in the nostrils of Allah, and will in due course be punished by the Almighty.
See, there’s a small problem here with that “in due course” deal; some clerics are kind of pro-active on it. And the Almighty isn’t the one doing the “punishing”, unless you consider a bunch of dopey human explosives to be Gods. Which Ellis may well do; his previous religion, the Australian Labor Party, hasn’t given much cause for worship of late.
