Thumbing one's nose at political
correctness is always fun, and usually hard to resist, even when it
involves some level of risk, such as baiting the lezzo's at a Reclaim the Night
march. Perhaps though, Johnny (ne'er do wrong) Howard wishes he had been a
little more cautious before promoting a man of the cloth to position of Governor
In an age of multiculturalism, feminism and affirmative action,
many people thought a retarded Islamic Aboriginal lesbian feminist would have been a
suitable choice for Governor General. Johnny (more conservative than
conservative) seized this opportunity to appoint, not just a mere white male,
but a Christian Bishop no less.
Avoiding compromising the principles of separation of church and state
apparently came a poor second to annoying the PC-republicans
when Johnny appointed Dr Peter (not-my-fault) Hollingworth to the highest
unelected post in the land. He would have weathered that storm easily, but
didn't twig to the fact that church figures untainted by pedophilia scandals
are about as rare as virgin births in the modern age, and while no-one actually
accused the good (trust-me-I'm-a) doctor of pedophilia himself, he
certainly seemed have turned a blind eye to his subordinates taking advantage
of their younger charges.
Johnny (seasoned politician) Howard doesn't make many mistakes, but he made one
here, and now he has backed himself into a corner. Admitting he's made a
mistake will make it even worse. He just has to grin and bear the flames as the
talk-back radio is full of morons who have nothing to do than to bore other
people with their ill-informed opinions calling for his resignation. Clearly
they are morons - they haven't learned to use the thinking man's talk-back
radio (the Internet).
And that might explain why they say stupid things like caller Sarah:
"All children have the right to look up to and revere the office of Governor
Well Sarah, they still do have that right. And if they were stupid enough to
revere it in the first place, they are probably still stupid enough to do so
now. Stupidity is your right too, so what's the problem?
Anyone can see that Doctor Peter (protector of children) Hollingworth is
doing a wonderful thing for children - revealing the true nature of politicians for when they
are forced to vote for them later in life.
If this doesn't make them cynical about the nature of politicians, there is
truly no hope for democracy. What better
justification for an undemocratic office like a Governor General?
