Why Does Ed Husic want to Destroy our Way of Life?

July 2, 2013

 

Untitled-1

The Prime Minister’s new parliamentary secretary, Ed Husic, has been subjected to a torrent of racial abuse after being sworn in to his new position with “a Koran.”

For the benefit of the uninitiated, the so-called “Koran” is the Muslims equivalent of “the bible,” except it only has two chapters; “Why homos need to be stoned to death,” and “Why everyone else must die too.”

Despite not knowing anything about Malcolm Turnbull’s internet, Mr Husic became Australia’s first Muslim frontbencher on Monday when he was appointed to Kevin Rudd’s new-look ministry as Parliamentary Secretary for Broadband.

“This is a wonderful day for multiculturalism, and everything it stands for in our country,” Governor-General Quentin Bryce told Husic during the swearing-in ceremony in Canberra on Monday.

However, after receiving dozens of messages of congratulations on his Facebook page, the comments quickly turned to disgust and outrage that he chose to be sworn in on the Muslim holy book.

Some called it un-Australian and unconstitutional.

“Our allegiance should have been to Queen and Country first. That means saying the oath on the holy bible not the Koran…. Shame, Shame, Shame,” posted one user, Ross Peace.

WHO WILL STAND UP FOR OUR WAY OF LIFE?

“I am so disappointed in this government that they don’t have the spine to stand up for the Australian way of life.”

DISGUSTED AND EMBARRASSED!

Another user, Therese Pearce, said she was “disgusted and embarrassed” for the Australian people.

“Hell i might just have to use snow white and the 7 dwarfs next time i take the oath for australia,” she posted.

One user, Anna Dean, claimed his decision to be sworn in on the Koran undermined “our culture and country and constitution in this way”.

WHAT NEXT – SHARIA LAW?

Another user, Carrie Forrest, accused him of disregarding Australia’s constitution and pushing for sharia law.

Husic has previously said that he is a moderate Muslim who does not involve himself heavily with most of the religious customs and behaviours of the faith.

Asked about his religion in 2010, he told The Gutter Trash: “If someone asks me, ‘Are you Muslim?’ I say yes.

And then if someone says, ‘Well do you pray and go to a mosque and do all the other things that are associated with the faith?’ I say no.

“I often get told that I describe myself as non-practising when in actual fact I don’t go round saying that. Like I just say ‘I’m Muslim’.”

But does he eat pork?

    This is a rerun of what happened when Keith Ellison swore the oath of offfice for the US congress holding a Koran. Eugene Volokh wrote at the time, “If you want the oath to be maximally effective, then it is indeed entirely true that ‘all that matters is what any individual holds to be his holiest book.’ That book is the one that will most impress the oathtaker’s mind with the duty to comply with the oath.”

    I didn’t know the CEO of The Firm was God! Learn somfink new every day …

    And what’s amusing to us non-religious types is that Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in the SAME fkn deity!

    I don’t need anyone’s book to tell the truth … in fact I know a lot of folk (and I mean a lot!) who need a book but still lie as part of their daily routine …

    The irony of religious ignorance in all its glory.

    Both holy books being human fabrications claiming to speak the mind of the same fabricated divine entity.

    These types never examine the foolishness of their own worldviews prior to becoming outraged by same differences in others’.

    Edham Nurredin Husic holds Chifley in western Sydney, one of the safest seats in Australia, so his flirtation with the prophet is probably genuine, yet delusional just the same.

    Hopefully in circumstances like BB King sang about:

    Squeeze me pretty baby
    Squeeze me ’til you wrap me in your big brass bed
    I want you to squeeze me and tease me
    Hold me until my face turns cherry red

    I find rush to hate is shocking. Husic is the latest Not-like-us figure. JG got it not because she was a female but because she was an unmarried, childess woman and defiantly so. Hoi polloi need stereotypes.

    Re above: amused to find I am in lock step with Gerard Henderson on JG’s single status and childlessness. Both certainly used to depict JG as The Other.

    Discovered a new word at Loon Pond. Shill. It is a noun which describes an accomplice for a hawker, swindler or gambler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others.

    Comes in handy.

    More like a codling moth. Far more sinister Egg.

    ‘The most important natural enemy of the codling moth is the Trichogramma micro wasp, which parasitises the moth eggs, by laying its egg inside the moth egg. The wasp larva then feeds on the contents of the moth egg. One female wasp is able to parasitise over 50 moth eggs. Trichogramma wasps are commercially produced in Australia.’

    Useful info Egg. I have two apple trees under siege from within and without. The grubs look out of their tunnel homes and sneer at me. The possums are an absolute disgrace. I suspect bats are in there too at night and in the day rainbow lorikeets are driving their beaks in. But I really hate those codling grubs. Will track down the wasps. Thanks.

    I miss my departed tabbies. They dealt with possums. When the girls went the possums moved in like the stoats and weasels at Toad Hall.

    “You should go into politics Reb.”

    That’s very flattering but I don’t think I possess the requisite levels of duplicity, backstabbing , dishonesty and general greasiness.

    If I was a politician though, I’d probably be like a cross between Malcolm Turnbull, Paul Keating and a dash of Andrew Wilkie…

    You would be a picture Reb. Actually I would just settle for Keating. After all these years I still laugh afresh every time I see footage of him in full cry. tA would never have survived him.

    “Nah! What’s that?”

    A young couple meet and move in together and their lust for each other is very high

    At first it’s so high they indulge in sex in every room of the house…………………….the kitchen floor (AKA Kitchen Sex)………………………….in the bathroom hot tub (AKA Bathroom Sex)………………………in the lounge room (Loungeroom Sex)…………………….but as time marches on the passion fades a little and they begin to mostly have their exploits in the bedroom (Bedroom Sex)………………….eventually as the passion wears thinner the sex is totally, sometimes interrupted by arguments, becomes exclusive to the bedroom…………………then the arguments grow more furious and the sex rarer…………………….soon the sex almost completely dries up they argue so much.

    Then comes the final stage of the relationship where between arguments they embark exclusively upon “Hallway Sex.”

    As each passes the other in the hallway of their home they both glance at each other and exclaim………….

    Partner 1 :“Well fuck you”

    Partner 2:“Yeah……………….well fuck you too”
