Both Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt, two of Rupert Murdoch’s most disgusting racist propagandists, have shown in their respective columns just how low they can go in demonising asylum seeking refugees.
In their twisted minds they suggest that insulting refugees is somehow far better than refugees drowning - as if one has something to do with the other.
The Australian naval officer that did the insulting did so because he’s a racist. He didn’t insult them to save them from drowning. Putting the two together as Blair and Bolt have done, simply demonstrates the purely racist intent of their commentary.
Both are classic examples of the propagandist’s skills whereby little is actually said by them but they leave it to their respective followers to fill in what they really want to say because they are too cowardly to actually say it themselves. A reading of the comments against Blair and Bolt’s post shows the true extent of their racism – if you can bear to read them.
As usual, Blair and Bolt push their hatreds up to the edge and leave it to their tiny band of racist Bloggies to shove it over.
