ANOTHER BOAT TRAGEDY, ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR RACIST ANTI-BOATPEOPLE PROPAGANDA

It seems there may have been another boatpeople tragedy near Christmas Island with a boat carrying some 150 people capsizing.

The Murdoch racist Andrew Bolt has predictably been quick to seize the propaganda moment using the tragedy once again to peddle his anti-boatpeople racism that demands that boatpeople are stopped by imprisoning them in places they don’t want to be for long periods. Somehow, so Bolt and a myriad of other racists and assorted xenophobes think, this will stop boats from being unseaworthy and allowing boatpeople safe passage to Australia.

The only way to stop the drownings is for the Indonesian and Australian governments to get together and provide seaworthy boats or, better still – and cheaper – aircraft for those wishing to seek asylum in Australia.
