Pauline Hanson had this to say:
“Every school in Australia is Christian apart from the Islamic schools. I have no understanding of what they teach in the Islamic school, do you?” Ms Hanson asked.
Are we surprised that she has “no understanding”? I'm not. And as I remember, my public primary school was not Christian, it was secular.
This bigot had the lion share of jaw-dropping quotes from the ABC TV article:
“Our democratic rights are being taken away. We just don't want [muslims] here. Not only in Camden, we dont want them in Australia. [All their countries] are dictatorships, they want to rule our world.”
Some other mind-bogglingly stupid comments.
“We're not bigots, we have the right to express our opinion.”
You have the right to express your opinion, if you are express a bigoted opinion, you are a bigot.
“My kids don't speak Arabic, so they cant go to this church. Next thing you know there'll be a mosque, then a little town … it's not right. It's totally not appropriate for the area.”
I'm not catholic, but I don't have a problem with Catholic churches, even if they continue to fuck young boys.
“I'm not saying all Muslims are bad. They are not all bad, but their teaching is.”
That's like saying: “The people of Camden aren't all bad, but they are all crack-whores”
ABC Reporter: Why are you wearing an Australia flag?
Bigot: Why not? Why shouldn't I? Why is the ABC against Australia?
Google turned up some more depressing bigotry from some small-minded douchebags:
The pigs’ heads, planted on wooden stakes on the Camden site, with the Australian flag draped between them, are believed to be in protest of the Muslim school proposal.
Why is it that alot of people confuse “secular” with “Christian”? Would they appose a Buddhist Temple?
