This will be the first of a regular column – “Geese of the Week”.
It will celebrate those geese who are so utterly deserving of being highlighted for their crazy antics against common sense. So here goes:
Number 3 – Paul Syvret
Paul Syvret comes in at number three this week. He has shown his true gooseworthyness with a petulant outburst on Twitter.
The Assistant Editor of Queensland’s largest newspaper obviously did not agree with my post earlier this week suggesting the LGBT community and King Henry VIII share a common goal in destroying marriage.
So he posted this tweet:
It comes as no surprise that Mr Syvret, like the majority of his mainstream media mates, is in favour of two blokes kissing outside a church. If you thought the media were running a pro-gay agenda you are right and Mr Syvret’s outburst confirms exactly what he thinks of anyone who dares to oppose it. Real nice.
But what made him a total goose was this next tweet. In less than 140 characters, Mr Syvret managed to aspire to Catholicism and at the same time attack organised religion. Logic is obviously not a strong point of his.
Someone should point out to the poor bloke that Catholicism is organised and that he has to obey the rules if he wants to be part of the team. Gay marriage is out. Simple.
Number 2 – Hizb ut Tahrir
Hizb ut Tahrir are the bunch of Islamic geese that chose to attack Anzac Day by issuing a press release with a big, black, bold title that said…wait for it…
What a bunch of geese.
Apparently, Anzac Day represents colonial Australian aggression against the Islamic caliphate. If only it had been successful, how much better off we would be now.
However, thanks to Hizb ut Tahrir, we now know that the Islamic world was joined at the hip with the bad guys in World War One. Not much has changed today, by the looks of things.
Number 1 – Catherine Deveny
A big goosey congratulations to Catherine Deveny. She has won the inaugural Goose of the Week award.
Hizb ut Tahrir are actually enemies of Australia with an explicit desire to overthrow our system of government and inflict Sharia Law, in all its glory, upon the women of this land. So it is no surprise that they would attack Anzac Day.
But Catherine Deveny is supposedly on the side of Australia.
However, she also made a complete goose of herself on Anzac Day by attacking it too. Shown below is just one of her less-than-impressive tweets:
So I’ve reassessed her position in relation to all that’s good and holy and it is clear she is on the same side of the line as Hizb ut Tahrir. What a goose.
