Note to Canberrans, your taxi driver is not a terrorist

The Canberra Times has the sad news that moronic Canberrans have been abusing and assaulting pakistani taxi drivers in Canberra (I’ll grudgingly concede a pattern from two incidents) on the basis that because the terrorists in the news are all muslims, then all muslims must be terrorists.

(Just like Catholics in the 1980’s perhaps?)

Regardless of the religious faith and racial extraction of your taxi driver, I think we can safely assume that he or she will perform their terrorist atrocity on a bigger target than the three drunks in the taxi at any given time.

Hey VG a little birdy told me that those who know “fatdog” may well want to listen to 104.7 tommorrow morning after 8am.

I think the phrase he may have used is ‘biblical scale’

it would have to be big to counter that!!!

…..and he isn’t a yobbo, he is a great, but now slightly embarrassed, bloke.

He is planning his revenge as we speak

Spoke to the ‘victim’ of the joke today. He is a very popular man at the minute

It’s on JJJ this very minute.

On first glance I had a good laugh at the EBay auction. But something drew me back to it.

Then I realised who the person in the picture was. It’s a mate of mine who has just been given one of the world’s great practical joke by another mate.

Absolutely superb

It’s a bit sad when people jump to conclusions about others in the community. It’s interesting that govco uses profiling extensively, although one hopes they are a bit more controlled in their actions than these dickheads.

from charnwood. heh. figures.

By the kilo, he’s currently cheaper than bananas.

having lived with muslims, i can say that they are angry that terrorists use islam to justify their actions.

its unlikely that a student from karachi driving cabs in the act has anything other than keeping the wolves from the door and passing that next exam, on his mind.

We can all learn a valuable lesson from these morons – never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.

Yep.. perhaps even christian non smokers with kids!!!

10 bucks these fucktards are non-smokers…

I don’t agree with their stupidity at all. But how else do you expect the ignorant people to react, they take a what you see is what you get reaction to the news and assume that anyone wearing any kind non-football/boxing related head gear is a terrorist… well all 5 minutes of the news that they see in the ads while big bother is on….

we have racial hatred laws here that we can use on these fools dont we
make examples of them

Don’t you just love it when yobbos ‘defend’ us from terrorism.
