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.

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’.

Nope, I reserve the right to take the absolute piss out of any religion, just as anyone else has the right to bash my beliefs. The difference is that unlike the usual suspects on this site I won’t stand up and scream ‘bigot’ whenever anyone speaks out against my own views.

Allow me to buy you a drink, sir. 😀

Walshs, Thursday Nights after 7pm. I will be the one smoking an old fashioned pipe. 🙂

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

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

Yep. Struggled miserably with a simple yes/no question about himself, and it was all downhill from there. Surprised myself by listening all the way through this drivel.

Oh. My. FSM.

That’s just how political correctness works in our society; it’s always OK to bash the perceived beneficiary of social bias. Sexism is out, but anti-male-bias is OK. Racism is out, but anti-Anglo-bias is OK. In the case of religion, it’s open slather on Christianity.
Not taking sides here – it’s just the way it is.

Bloody hell, not sure if twit actually covers how Mr Ross should be categorised.

Retarded ignorant pos i think works better

And the people who slapped a fatwa on Salman Rushdie demanding he be killed on account of writing a novel?

What do you call them?

And here’s your challenge: find me just one Australian mufti or “spokesman for the islamic community” he says that fatwa is wrong.

what does Salman Rushdie have to do with gunghalin?

He shares the same name as the creator of Alexander the Bunyip, a statue of whom is outside the Gungahlin library?

Oh yeah, that’s Salmon, Michael Salmon…..
