Let’s be quite clear here. Sharks are attempting to enter this country without a visa, so it’s clear that they’re illegal entrants. Some on the Left are attempting to argue that, being part of the animal kingdom, they have no way of obtaining one and that they have a right to swim in the ocean. But this is the sort of nonsense that’s led to the situation we now have.
Once sharks come within a certain distance of shore, they’re in our territorial waters and that that gives us the right to do what we like to them. If they don’t like it, they should stay where they belong. After all, it’s not like they have faulty navigational equipment to blame.
These things are obvious to all Right thinking people.
And yet, the ABC, rather than support the government who are attempting to protect our borders, chooses to report the views of those who support the sharks. They even quoted Sea Shepherd spokesman, Jeff Hansen.
I’m not going to repeat the quote because I don’t want to join in the treason of the ABC. After all, it’s the 100th anniversary of ANZAC day coming up, and it’s worth remembering that people gaves their lives so we could have freedom in this country. Of course, freedom doesn’t mean that we should repeat things from people who don’t support everything the government does. If people don’t appreciate the free speech that they have, then they should shut up! Of course, while free speech is very important, it’s more important to ensure that the national broadcaster doesn’t repeat the views of those who are undermining our efforts to keep our borders safe.
One only has to look at Q&A to see how the ABC loves to humiliate the government. Their constant use of Liberals such as Sophie Mirabella and Christopher Pyne is a deliberate attempt to make the Coalition look ridiculous.
And, of course, they have form. When we invaded Iraq, some of their reporters had a very cynical tone when questioning people about the WMDs, even suggesting that there was little evidence that they existed, before it was clear that there were no WMDs.
Then the other day, they reported the death of Pete Seeger without reminding us that, during World War Two, he supported the Russians.
No, the ABC jumps at any chance it has to embarrass Abbott and the Liberals.
It has been pointed out to me that the shark cull is nothing to do with the Federal Government. My overall point still stands because I believe that they’re the sort of people who should join the ABC staff in being sent to camps for re-education.
