Irfan Yusuf is a blogger, a former Liberal candidate for Parliament, a Sydney lawyer, quite a fan of Canberra, and also a muslim. He’s got a very interesting story online describing going on 2CC to talk about recent events involving muslims.
The questions on assimilation were really quite silly. I mean, fancy a shock jock with a slightly English accent telling a Sydney lawyer with a broad â€œStraynâ€ accent to assimilate more.
I liked this bit too:
The interview ended with a humorous monologue in which the interviewer claimed that my describing his questions as those of a â€œshock jockâ€ was racist. When I suggested to him that radio talkback hosts did not constitute a race, he completely lost it.
It was truly hilarious stuff. A shock jock tries to be a smart-ass with a poor migrant unassimilated pro-terrorist follower of extremist clerics looking forward to 72 fictitious virgins. And the shock jock ends up being given a good kick and completely losing it on air. In the end, most listeners would have realised where the real extremism was coming from.
Any of our 2CC listeners know which of their “talent” was responsible?
