Miranda Divine talks sense about the Stanhope/ Hicks love in

By Thumper 6 August 2006 63

The SMH has Miranda Divine putting into print what most sane people in this country actually think, namely, Hicks junior is a tosser, Hicks senior, for all his good intentions, is a tosser, and that our beloved Brave Leader, is also a tosser.

Specifically, these words chill me to the bone, ‘It also illustrates how many people are in denial about what happened on September 11, 2001.’

Stanhope is trying to make a martyr out of Hicks junior by clouding the facts with his own agenda of social justice.

The rest of the country must be laughing at us for having such a statesman in control of our territory.

The left tries to make Hicks into a martyr. He trained with radical militant islamic groups. He was prepared to fight and die for his new found cause. He was caught in action in a theatre of war/conflict. He is no innocent victim. He was captured by US forces. We should remember we have forces in Afghanistan trying to help a civilian administration survive post the era of the Taliban. If he was transferred to Australia he would get off scott free because our laws don’t cover such situations. That is the cold hard reality. Would Hicks have described himself as an Australian citizen when he commenced his journey involving Islam. No way. He disowned us very early in the piece – a long time ago. He gave up his rights as an Australian citizen ages ago when he became an Islamic warrior operating illegally overseas. The plain fact is he is paying the price for his actions. Rest assured his new found Islamic colleagues do not believe in fair trials.

Give it up Simto. Bonfire’s argumentative technique when he finds himself in a corner of his own making involves calling you a softhead, telling you to go fist yourself (if you get him really riled up), then sticking his fingers in his ears and yelling “La-la-la”.

Nobody is saying he’s innocent. That seems to be something your slightly spongy noggin has picked up from nowhere, BF.

The approach Terry Hicks is adopting is equivalent to “yeah, my kid was part of a bad gang. But lots of kids from the gang seem to have been let off by now, and mine hasn’t. Why not?”

Not looking for absolution, just for explanation.
