Voting voted down

Last updated on May 20th, 2017 at 10:16 am

Allah don’t do irony:

Around 150 Muslims voted with the leader of the radical Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir that taking part in the political process is a waste of time.

    1. Also:

      Denied entry to US as Terrorist Supporter, Tariq Ramadan heads to Queensland to lecture the Kuffirs. On the government’s dime.

      Nice work if you can get it, I suppose…

      Customer: I was reading about these Islamist fellers in London voting that taking part in the political process was a waste of time and the durned thing blow’d up!

    1. ”…taking part in the political process is a waste of time.”

      I’ve had this feeling myself, when trying to choose among a dress-stainer, a peanut farmer, an empty suit, a lying sack of crap, a harpy/harridan, a doofus, various posers or a dangerous lunatic.

    1. Monday’s meeting of the Anarchy Society has been canceled due to lack of a quorum.

    1. Well, to be frank*, logic isn’t exactly an Islamic strong suit, as pointed out by Kathy Shaidle:

      “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas labeled Israel’s actions to counter the constant firing of rockets into the Gaza Strip ‘worse than the Holocaust.’”

      (You mean: the one that didn’t happen? So confused… )

      *No pun intended.

    1. So, does this mean in future that George Galloway will simply be proclaimed a member of Parliament, by the muezzins shouting from their minarets?

    1. I would tell them, “Well, if that’s the way you feel, then by all means go back to wherever you came from. And watch out for the door. Don’t let it hit you in the ass on your way out.”

      I think Orwell cribbed the idea for “doublethink” from the Muslims.

    1. Do you think that at least one of them may have thought to themselves, “Hmm, there’s a point here I should probably get”.

      Shaman and witchdoctors have more cred than these dicks.

    1. #1

      Denied entry to US as Terrorist Supporter, Tariq Ramadan heads to Queensland to lecture the Kuffirs. On the government’s dime.

      It is worse that that – one of Rudd’s parliamentary secretaries, Laurie Ferguson, a member of one of Labor’s royal families, is to introduce the jihadist to the audience. That puts him in the same class as a David Hicks.

    1. These muslum fellahs are real honest though:
      http://michellemakin.com/2008/03/02/scholars-demand-laws-criminalizing-insults-to-islam/
      The only issue is, how do the lefties who promote islam as the religion of peace and tolerance, come to that conclusion when every utterance and action by the muslum boys says the opposite?

    1. “We need to return to our roots. Our vision is to change the world, not join silly little parties.

      No, what you need to do is return to your shithole countries, and enjoy all the benefits of sharia without interference from all those infidel cultures.

    1. #3 Harry. Sounds like you’re considering a pre poll vote in the looming Gold Coast City Council elections. I recognise the candidates.

      Why only the other day we received our letter re the Gold Coast City Quadrennial Elections (look that up in your funk and wagnell)on March 15.

      It told us we had to vote (we know that) and it told us to cut out the bottom corner bit with our details and bring it to the polling booth. This is to help the official find us on the books. What was wrong with saying your name and they went to it alphabetically.

      I estimate the cost to send this bit of waffle out to be around $150,000.

      Which will be quite a cost if other councils latch onto this bit of PR brilliance.

    1. “What could be better than that when it’s rooted in Islam?”
      Ummm… I’m not sure better is the word you’re looking for when discussing things islam has rooted.

      I got a letter too. “Bring this letter with you when you vote.” I got one for the Federal election, too.I’ve only been voting since after 1976… I’m pretty sure nothing’s changed.

    1. O/T What a fun day we had in Canada today.

      Mastermind Stephen Harper sues Liebral Party and all prominent Liebrals for libel.

      Note to Aussies: In Canada, the Liberals are the bad guys, having run the country for 80% of it’s history, they consider themselves the natural ruling party and really, really get their knickers in a twist when the government doesn’t listen to them. For the past 15 years, they have run on the “evil, scary, conservative” smear ticket. Now, smears are over.

    1. Is this an omen or what?

      Meanwhile, a man was found shot in a park in Sydney’s south west last night – the third shooting incident in the past 24 hours.

      The victim was found conscious and breathing by ambulance crews with a gunshot wound to the leg at Rudd Park in Belfield about 11pm.

      It is believed the offenders – of Middle Eastern appearance – were in two cars, a black hatchback and a silver 4WD.

    1. A vote at the end of the debate showed 78 per cent of the audience agreed that political participation had ‘failed Muslims.’

      Correction: The vote was 100% in favour. 22% of the participants were missing their voting hands due to previous theft convictions. Votes against democracy will no longer be done by a show of hands.

      Is this the funniest, most accurate, stupidest thing that Kevvie has uttered so far?

      … Mr Rudd told ABC television: “If you want wang, bang, pizzazz, performing cartwheels and throwing fireworks into the air, mate you’ve backed the wrong guy with me.

    1. Muslims need to lighten up a little.  They should all just settle down, grab themselves an alcaholic beverage, put on a stick flic and have a wank.  Seriously, all this pent up aggression and rage could be solve by a few quick strokes and knocking the top off.

      I reckon this whole Israel/Palestinian conflict could be all solved with a mutual beer and mastubation session down at the Gaza Strip.

    1. With Mendacity being one of the main doctrines of Islam, especially when dealing with civilised western societies.  Politics and Islam would, on the surface seem like a good fit, but then the lies in politics have be plausible.  Maybe they should keep on waving dead children at the cameras as Hamas did recently, while the so-called jihad fighters hide amongst a skittish populace.  Using dead babies to promote their cause, is not good politics they should stick to their “religion” it gives them the high moral ground.

    1. So they’ve rioted and murdered when the pope said that they can be unreasonable and prone to violence, and now they’ve voted against voting. What’s next, a toast to teatotling? Hats off for hijabs? Guard dogs in taxis to keep blind people out?

    1. #35 Never a truer word spoken in jest!

      What I don’t understand is when all these scary mass ralies are held with satanic black flag waiving and chanting, dead baby displaying, frothing at the mouth jihadis is held in the street of Gazza etc. (you know the ones that reveal the nature of the beast we fight). Why arn’t we seeing 10 to 20 JDAMS hit the massed crowd at once to provide some warmth to the celebrations. Guess the Israeli Air Force are allot nicer than I am.
