Human, dog rights violated

Last updated on August 5th, 2017 at 03:27 pm

dilly of a human rights pickle in Sydney:

Taxi drivers are regularly refusing to carry blind passengers with guide dogs – including Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner …

[Human Rights and Disability Discrimination Commissioner Graeme] Innes, whose high-powered role makes him a regular cab user, said he was refused service on average once a month, including twice in two days recently.

He has been told on a number of occasions that it would be against a driver’s religion to allow a dog in the cab.

Presbyterians. I bet it’s those damn Presbyterians.

(Via Bill R. in Minnesota, where this problem has surfaced previously)

    1. So, put a burqa on the dog, and tell the driver you’re keeping your wife on a short leash.  Those damned Presbyterians will love that idea!

    1. #1: That scheme looks absolutely flawless to me RJ.

      #2: Great link, Cap’n! Somewhere, Wronwright has a case of the wriggly fingers.

      I believe the appropriate authorities in Minnesota finally told the cabbies to knock it off or lose their licenses. This is the truly insidious side of Islam, as practiced in western societies: pushing and prodding at every point of tolerance, bending the host country to its will, first in relatively small things, then in greater. There is no more timely message than this.

    1. Why are these idiots allowed to drive cabs?  The people who are denied service should write letters and picket and otherwise make such pests of themselves that the taxi companies will be forced to fire those drivers who refuse fares based on religion (which, to my mind, is the same as personal preference).

      This was only mentioned briefly on the main Sydney radio stations this morning and nothing at all was said about damn Presbyterians people of no appearance.  The local station of Their ABC didn’t mention the news item at all.

    1. Paco -as in the US, a state matter here in Oz. NSW might do something such as pulling the licences, but Victoria…..? more likely to set up a study to determine if guide dog duties can be done by suitably large cats.

      Or smallish goats or sheep which of course would have the extra bonus of many of the drivers being able to take all or part of the fare in kind, as it were.

      I wonder how well a cab driver would serve as a spreader of contagious disease in a day or few of normal work?

    1. NSW Taxi Council spokeswoman Tracey Caine said complaints about refusing guide dogs was rare.

      That might be because the blind people couldn’t the the cabbie’s correct ID number.

      Yes, they’d probably set up the same committee in Queensland as in Victoria – they announced thismorning that there have been two committees set up, one of which is to investigate the difficulties faced by Muslim youth. The other one was for something also related to keeping the Religion of Perpetual Indignation and Victimhood pacified.

      Why?

      powerful stuff paco.

      You’ve probably seen this clip before, but I can’t watch it without crying. My parents escaped a communist country before I was born. The greatest gift they gave me was to come to Australia.

      Every time we give in to these petty yet reprehensible demands under the guise of religious sensibilities, I seriously believe it brings us one step closer to the kind of life depicted in the film above.

      Sorry for the early morning rant everyone.

      Happy birthday Andrea.

      Morning Kae.

    1. And a further point -Mr Innes, the HR&DDC states this is a regular occurrence.  Well one hopes these filth have picked on the wrong bloke, but one might have thought he could have done something about it before now, given his position.  Or is he too busy attacking mugabushitlerhoWARd, as that freak show amnesty is busy doing?

    1. E-cid thank you for your picture. I think I could give you some lessons, but it was pretty thank you. I’ve never been in a communist country. Many who come here still act like communist here in Australia. We have Russians here who appear communist.

      Sing song time.

      Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light
      What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
      Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
      O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
      And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
      Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
      Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

      On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
      Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
      What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
      As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
      Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
      In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
      ‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

      And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
      That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
      A home and a country should leave us no more?
      Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
      No refuge could save the hireling and slave
      From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
      And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

      Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
      Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
      Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
      Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
      Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
      And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
      And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    1. Maybe the Royal Institute for the Blind can start refusing guide dogs to muslims?

      And perhaps those who supply bionic ears and hearing aids can put an embargo on muslims with hearing difficulties as the technology does, after all, belong to the Evil Infidels.

      Of course, since a large proportion of taxi fares on evenings and weekends would be people who’ve been drinking, perhaps hotels and clubs can stick up a sign for infidel taxis, and those who’ve been drinking can boycott the religious sensibilities of muslims.

      I would have thought that a physical impairment such as blindness would trump religion anyway. After all, the religious ones can still get around without assistance.

      We should be more tolerant of physical disabilities.

    1. “We asked the driver for his accreditation number and he gave us the wrong one,” he said.

      “It was only because an airline staff member had accompanied us that we got the right number and could properly complain about being refused.”

      NSW Taxi Council spokeswoman Tracey Caine said … “It is illegal to refuse to take a guide dog and all drivers know it.”

      Airlines know before a plane departs whether or not they’re carrying a passenger with a guide dog.

      It should be a simple thing for the airline to find out whether the person is going to need a taxi on arrival and, if so, to let the destination airport people know so that they can delegate a sighted person to accompany that passenger to the cab rank and ensure that any driver who refuses the fare is correctly identified, the police are called, the law-breaker is brought to justice, stomped on and generally made so miserable that he decides to get a job where his religion doesn’t conflict with his legal obligations or goes off to live in some place where his sort of disgraceful behaviour is accepted as normal.

      Either that or cab driver IDs should be issued in braille or with audio.

      #48 Grimmy the only problem with that is that the cabs all have onboard vid recorders, so anyone trying that will probably be charged with assault.

      Here in Brackistan they would definitely be charged with assault. After all, that’s picking on a minority.

    1. There is a story in today’s American Spectator (“Among the iltellectualoids”) that a loony book on 9/11 with the usual poop to he effect it was a US plot to dominate the Middle East REALLY HAS BEEN PUBLISHED BY PRESBYTERIANS!!!

    1. It certainly took this blind man a lot of time to gather up the courage to protest this ridiculous treatment.  What was he doing in the meantime, “dialoging,” singing Kumbaya, with them?

    1. There are two alternative points that I urge readers to consider:

      1. What sort of a prick, blind or not would force his dog to get in a car with one of these types? (unless it is of course to “get hold”)

      2. What sort of shit house dog training goes on these days? They are supposed to stop at “don’t walk” signs, lead their masters out of burning houses etc and they can’t even direct their owners to the proper taxi?

      I’ll no longer be donating to Guide Dogs for the Blind if they don’t even teach them the basic stuff.

    1. Says a lot about a culture that hates hounds and worships suicide- 60-odd years ago similar types were loading up on crystal meth and charging en masse at machine gun posts, or flying a Zeke full of HE onto the deck of an aircraft carrier- we all know how we finally had to put the bag on those recalcitrant rascals.

      Somehow though I can’t see a nuked Somalia or Iran turning around in twenty years and knocking off some of the worlds biggest economies.

    1. The Methodists or some such religion banned the playing of the didgeridoo in Broome yesterday!  Gotta love these enlightened cultures.

    1. Wish they’d ban it everywhere, particularly by white idiots with dreadlocks. I used to use the pipe off my mum’s vaccuum cleaner as a didge when I was a kid- I blame Rolf Harris. (And to a lesser degree Charlie Drake- how come no-one’s ever done a cover or remix of My Boomerang Won’t Come Back?)

    1. Dogs make Muslim “men” horny, because dogs can be cross dressed as goats or donkeys.  [See youtube key in Iraq donkey].

    1. The actual problem that islam has with dogs and cats is that they (the non human animals) can lick their own genitals.

      It’s a jealousy issue. If they (the human islamic animals) can’t do it, no one or no thing will be allowed to.

    1. Ha!  Saw some bloke from the taxi industry on the ABC tonight and he said something along the lines of: “If they don’t want to carry blind people and their dogs, they can get another religion or get another job”.

      He was pretty blunt about it.  I almost fell of my chair in shock.  Imaginge broadcasthing domething like that on the ABC!  Feel like writing a letter to the ABC complaining about their bias against muslims (ha ha ha).

    1. Doesn’t the Muslim “religious aversion” to dogs stem from Mohammed’s personal phobia about them?

      Wot? Wot’s that, you say? Feller disliked dogs, did he? Well, I’ll bet I know why: dogs can tell, you know. They . . . Jenkins, another brandy, please, and look slippy about it . . . they can tell the difference between a gentleman and a cad, and this feller . . . What’s the name? Mohammed, you say? Ghastly moniker! Not one of the County set, is he? No, no, he wouldn’t be . . . In any event, a dog whose olfactory sense is still in working order will spot the rotter in the room nine times out of ten. Wouldn’t give ha’pence for a feller who didn’t like dogs. Mohammed, indeed! Probably one of those merchant wallas who sells brass pots and ceramic elephants and peacock feathers to Indian restaurants. “By appointment to Her Majesty”, no doubt. Humph! “Merrie England”, wot?

    1. I heard the same story covered on ABC Newsradio last night – with no mention of the Cab Drivers of No Appearance, or their possible religious objections to carrying dogs in their cars.  This is a mild example of what we already know the media is doing to “the news” all the time

      Or was your dog, Bacon Boy, pink with a curly tail before you painted him yellow?
