Ringleader of anti-Muslim protests outs himself – as a twit.

By Gungahlin Al - 23 August 2012 25

For Gungahlin folk who’ve been wondering about the so-called “Concerned Citizens of Canberra” and their dog-whistle objections against the mosque to be built in our town centre, this interview with the ringleader on 2CC today is revealing and essential listening.

I think Mike Welsh tried really hard to be fair, but this guy is his own worst enemy.

The guy is simply stupid. Everything else stems from that.

His arguments are stupid, his responses are stupid and his cause is stupid.

More than a whiff of hypocrisy from Welsh, (and in previous threads here on this topic).

WTF has this guy got to do with sexual abuse by Catholic clergy? Just as not all Muslims are terrorists, not all ‘Christians’ are kiddy fiddlers.

Highlighting the specific religious intolerance of this numpty is not an excuse to engage in a bit of bigotry yourself. I’ll never understand why it’s OK to bash Christianity, but Islam, at least as whacky and oppressive, is somehow off limits to criticism by anyone who wants to be thought of as ‘progressive’.

I think you need to listen to it again. He wasn’t bashing Christianity, he was making the point you just made, not all Muslims are terrorists just like not all catholics are pedos.
He was asking why only go after Muslims and not any group that has a bad person in it.

“I don’t know wether you have someone else who might be a better spokesperson” classic LOL

Ok, the conflicting press release statements part is pretty damn funny, love how he nails him to the wall on that one!

This issue is not only of concern to residents of Gungahlin. Even people as far away as the inner north support religious freedom.

Freedom of speech is just as important. Unfortunately, this short-sighted new legislation will also scoop up anyone who takes the mickey out of a nonsense, litigious, unethical nutjob “religion” such as Scientology. Not to mention Landmark. Which well-heeled cults will hound anyone who refers to, e.g. “levitation” as a nonsense? Many of them. Scientology has a shocking history of bullying apostates. Danish cartoon debacle, anyone?
I am totally against legislation that creates sedition of mockery and comment. Fully support a mosque in Gungahin; reserve my right to joke about Mohammed.

I think that’s drawing a long bow Poetix. Denizens of the inner north support skinny lattes and sauvignon blanc blended with their semillon, but religious freedom? Do you really think so? 🙂

Mike Welsh smashed him. I lol’d.

What a incredible bell end.

Anybody who listened to that and still thinks he as any credibility needs to kill themselves immediately.
