You’re a fraud Ford; you cannot have it both ways
By Corrine Barraclough
The Left picked up their titchy, tiny little victim violins this week and treated us to a shrill concert.
Yassmin Abdel-Magied is moving to London. She’ll be wearing a badge that says, “I’m the most hated Muslim in Australia.” She’ll alight a cruise ship named “Poor me” and be served comforting warm chicken soup.
Before she heads off, can we be really clear that the criticism Abdel-Magied received has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she’s young, a woman or a Muslim? She received criticism because she showed a total lack of respect.
To the goose that asked why I care about Anzac Day - I’m from the UK. Answer: because several relatives are in the forces, I have the upmost respect for those who serve and relatives who fought in both World Wars. Just to clear that up, you don’t have to be born in Australia to understand respect, it’s a global phenomenon. It’s also known as integration.
In a laborious essay for The Guardian, Abdel-Magied penned talk of “abuse”, “criticism” and the weighty challenge of being an “advocate”.
Who does not understand that you cannot advocate for respect by showing disrespect?
It’s as ridiculous as Clementine Ford advocating for respect for women by being vile to men. That equals not equality.
It’s an unhinged as Kathy Griffin’s hilarious “joke” holding a decapitated Trump’s head.
So, it’s only funny if the Left say it?
It’s only amusing if it’s at men’s expense?
Because when Abdel-Magied receives death threats, we taken them seriously but when Ford writes about killing men in a book, it’s “satire”.
You can’t pretend you stand for equality and gobble up funding if you trample on other human beings to achieve supremacy.
“When you joke about rape and sexual assault, you are telling the rapist laughing along that other people secretly think just like they do,” she tweeted. Are we supposed to take that seriously when other tweets from her include, “All men are scum and must die”, “MEN R GROSS AND ALSO RAPISTS. KILL ALL MEN”?
If your only justification for that is that “it’s a joke”, you’ve been brainwashed. Splash cold water on your face and think for yourself.
You’re a fraud Ford; you cannot have it both ways. The past does not justify your relentless, bloodthirsty pursuit of revenge.
