I say ‘I think’ because it is impossible for me determine exactly what Abbot was saying when he was fawning before the great God Murdoch at the seventieth anniversary IPA dinner.
Almost at the beginning of his speech about says:
In the Garden of Eden that Adam and Eve could do almost as the pleased but freedom turned out to have limits and it’s abuses, as this story makes only too clear. Yet without freedom we can hardly be human; hardly be worthy of creation in the image of God.
Tony Abbott April 4, 2013.
This is very confusing to me. Is he saying Eve supposedly defying God was good because it gave the Human race freedom (a common religious argument) or that God has rules that must be obeyed?
It is hardly surprising that Abbott does not know if Murdoch is God or the Devil. Murdoch ultimately has copyright over what the Fundamentalists claim is the word of the God, the New International Version of the Bible and he is the publisher of the Satanic Bible, written by the ‘Black Pope’ Anton Szandor La Vey. He is also a Catholic Knight Commander of St Gregory. No wonder Abbott is confused about Murdoch’s place in the Godship hierarchy.
Possibly Murdoch doesn’t give a shit as long as it is profitable.
There is a paragraph were he congratulates Jack Roskam for his defence of Western Civilization. I and completely confused by it, particularly the bit about the new version of the Great Australian silence. Exactly what Western Civilization did Jack Roskam defend and who is he anyway.
According to Abbott Roskam had a staff of 20 and Jesus had a staff of 12. I have no idea what that was about.
There is an enlightened section where Abbott says Murdoch has sometimes changed his political alliance but never his fundamental principles. At last Abbott has told the truth about something.
And he did spell out the Coalitions policies.
Repeal the carbon pricing legislation (he called it a carbon tax).
Abolish the Department of Climate Change.
Abolish the Clean Energy Fund.
Repeal section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act.
Repeal the mining Tax.
Privatise Medibank Private.
When he compared Murdoch with saving Paris in the Great War and Lord Florey, the co-inventor of penicillin I had this strange idea. Maybe Abbott is really as thick as he appears in public. Maybe it is not just an act to appeal to the bottom feeders of the Australian gene pool.
I had a lot more about the madness that is the IPA but instead please read the speech yourself from Abbott’s official website http://bit.ly/16uLdxF It gives valuable insights into the man who would be Prime Minister of Australia.
