Zed appalled the Greens don’t share his Parkwood outrage

By johnboy 14 March 2012 43

Liberal Leader Zed Seselja has been silent on whether he supports animal cruelty, but he is letting people know that the Greens have not shown what he believes is sufficient outrage for the Parkwood Egg sabotage:

Both Shane Rattenbury and Caroline Le Couteur have refused to condemn or even comment on the apparent destruction of property at a Canberra egg farm. ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja today called on Meredith Hunter to show leadership and denounce this attack.

“Shane Rattenbury and Caroline Le Couteur have been given every opportunity to condemn this activity but have chosen not to, even going so far as to refuse to comment at all and suggest they hadn’t seen the details,” Mr Seselja said today.

“Just last year, Shane Rattenbury refused to condemn the illegal destruction of $300,000 worth of CSIRO genetically modified crops by Greenpeace.

“We absolutely condemn this destructive activity which has thrown the livelihoods of the farms’ workers into doubt overnight.

UPDATE 14/03/12 11:40: This comment in from a Greens’ Spokesperson:

Firstly, notice no quotes in Zed’s release. Caroline has actually condemned the incident quite clearly when asked -noting her particular concern about property damage and acid endangering hens. Shane refused to comment because he had been hot air ballooning from 5am and hadn’t seen the newspaper – he didn’t know the first thing about it so he declined to comment, but when asked hypothetically if he would support someone pouring battery acid on a facility he said clearly: “Of course not”.

This is desperation from a soon to be ex-leader who is in serious trouble himself and looking for deflection.

The Greens remain proud of multiple attempts to legislate the phasing out cage egg production in the ACT, something that Mr Seselja has voted against.

Breaking the law in our society because you personally don’t like something is never excusable.

Yeah, that Oscar Schindler had no excuse for smuggling Jews to Sweden.


Although it does make the point that absolute statements rarely hold up for very long

They’re good for 1,000 years, surely?

Just to be clear, Oskar Schindler didn’t smuggle Jews into Sweden, that was another Righteous Gentile, Raoul Wallenberg, who as a Swedish diplomat in Hungary saved tens of thousands of Jews by issuing them with fake passports and other documents, as well as sheltering them in various Swedish diplomatic properties.
