Leave Anna-Maria Arabia alone, Andrew Bolt!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, June 20, 2011,
Why am I not surprised that the appalling Andrew Bolt is still beating his denialist drum against respected scientists fighting valiantly to save the planet from catastrophic climate change? Now he's attacking sassy sister Anna-Maria Arabia. And he's doing so with even more vitriol than usual. Perhaps it's got something to do with his obvious Islamophobia.

Fellow travellers, we all know that big business is full of appalling peenie-waving testosteroids who despise women and nature in equal measure. But most of the time they aren't overt about it.
