The Null Device
The Oxleymoron rides again
Pauline Hanson, fish and chip shop owner and founder of the xenophobic nativist One Nation party, is going back into politics on a policy of keeping Muslims out of Australia
, because, you know, they're all rapists and terrorists at heart:
"I want a moratorium put on the number of Muslims coming into Australia," Ms Hanson told the Nine network. "People have a right to be very concerned about this because of the terrorist attacks that have happened throughout the world.
Hanson (who would undoubtedly swear up and down on a stack of bibles that she's not a racist) insists that Muslim women would support her, if they knew how they were being oppressed:
"Maybe we should look at the female genital mutilation that happens to young girls in this country ... if people want to live by these ways then go back to the Muslim countries."
Meanwhile, whilst we're on the subject of famous Australian
Spokeswomen for the Silent Majority, Dannii "Even some of the street signs are in Asian!"
Minogue, who's now working as a judge on a TV talent show, has claimed that a contestant, who is a Muslim, will be disowned by her parents if they find out she's on the show
, specifically mentioning the Islamic connection, and thus taking a story of fairly common family tensions and beating it up into another facet of a global clash of civilisations. I wonder whether One Nation are looking for celebrity candidates to run in high-profile seats...
