ALP's slur via Danby MP is hopelessly flawed and sleazy
Mood:  sharp
Topic: aust govt

Danby MP lays out his sophistry in today's The Australian with this:

"I have never heard any of them speak out in support of the many thousands of political prisoners in North Korean labour camps, of the 300,000 murdered African Muslims of Darfur, or the Uighur people in western China, whose ancient heritage in areas like Kashgar is being bulldozed by the Chinese Communists as I write. Perhaps the common attribute of these struggles which does not endear them to Rhiannon and her watermelon faction is that they do not support violence and they are not anti-American."

 in MICHAEL DANBY: Knowing the truth will scare off voters

 Certainly Danby and the ALP must be worried being bracketed with the Yigal Amir poster boy movement that assassinated Israeli PM Yitzak Rabin to expand into Palestine.

It's all about alarm for the corrupt in Israeli politics over this;

Naomi Klein in The Guardian, prominent Jewish Canadian media practitioner calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions
Topic: human rights



So what about this reportage contrary to Danby rhetoric, from back on 24 April 2008 on humble SAM news blog mentioning all of the afflicted people Danby says the critics of Israel (regarding Palestine) never mention:

Olympic torch relay: Chinese military in the frame as per sponsor Ch7 vision

Topic: big media

"Whatever you do don't deviate from the alloted path according to the Chinese People's Police, thankyou very much. Sebastian Coe, we get the picture! Very careful control and choreography is the name of the game. Those poor Tibetans and Uygurs, North Koreans, Burmese, Darfurians, Zimbabweans etc.

And that's not saying anything good about the terrible record of the USA or Soviet Union either with their famous record of abuse of power and human rights."

Xstrata and Barrick involved in highly contoversial mine conflicts in Phillipines, PNG
Mood:  don't ask
Topic: human rights


Danby by his stupid comment just proves he is moral bupkis(Yiddish for worthless).

For instance he completely ignores that the ALP councillors at Marrickville also voted for Boycott, Sanction, Divestment campaign against Israel until they change direction on Palestine human rights and the extreme and predatory land theft movement promoting theocratic 'Samaria'.

He also selectively ignores the record of Meredith Burgmann, a prominent campaigner for the ALP in Balmain state election seat, former MP, current Sydney City Councillor, who managed to airbrush the North Koreans atrocities from her cute report of visit to the secret kingdom, exposed here on SAM some years back;

And to hear ex PM John Howard lecture The Greens about human rights and democracy, well that's right up there with Kissinger getting the Nobel Peace Prize over the bodies of a million or so dead Vietnamese and Cambodians, given Howard's equally culpable role in this:
