60 Minutes, multiculturalism, sharia and Australia's green movement

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, March 21, 2011,
Of course appalling right-wingers will be feeling vindicated over last night's episode of 60 Minutes and their story on the "failure" of multiculturalism. But they so hate diversity they would say that, wouldn't they?

And the report by Michael Usher really was a disgrace. It was a truly appalling beatup of a non-problem. Thankfully, the team redeemed themselves with their unflinching portrayal of the terrifyingly cataclysmic risks posed by the damaged Japanese nuclear reactors. Surely journali...

Muslim group's critique of Christmas deemed evil by bigoted Britons

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, December 24, 2010,
Fellow travellers, one thing that always angers me is how Christians are so intolerant of other people's worldviews. Be they worshippers of other gods, or none at all, Bible thumping conservatives just won't let them be.

Not only is this a case of re...

Dr Joanne Faulkner slams Santa, speaks truth to white power

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, December 15, 2010,
Fellow travellers, even though it can be a very unpleasant experience visiting the loony right-wing reaches of the blogopshere - which are so rancid with the stench of sexism, racism, and climate change denialism that afterwards I always have to have a peppermint tea and a good lie down - it is certainly worth doing so on a regular basis. As they say, it's important to know your enemy.

(And when I say "enemy", I don't mean it in the "pro-war" sense, BTW. I am - like all of you, my fellow trav...
