Tony Abbott is no common sense speaking politician — just look at his comments on ISIL

Wow. Anyone who still harboured the idea that Australia was led by no-nonsense, common sense speaking politicians should look away now.

Here is Tony Abbott, Prime Minister of Australia, talking about the motivations of the man who held a shop full of people hostage earlier this week and then murdered two of them:

The point I keep making is that the ISIL death cult has nothing to do with any religion, any real religion. It has nothing to do with any particular community. It is something to which sick individuals succumb.’

That is right, ladies and gentlemen. If you or I suffer from a seasonal cold this winter we must be careful it does not develop into full-blown ISIL. Otherwise before we know it we will find ourselves holding innocent people hostage and gunning them down in chocolate shops.

    ‘The point I keep making is that the ISIL death cult has nothing to do with any religion, any REAL RELIGION. It has nothing to do with any particular community. It is something to which SICK INDIVIDUALS succumb.’

    Perhaps it’s my own bias, but it seems doesn’t have any genuine respect for Muhammad (or Muhammadism).

    The ISIS boys would disagree. And chop your head off for being stupider than them.

    Another arrogant elitist who believes he can dictate what is “real” religion and what is not.

    Once the new top guy is surrounded by those “advisers who created victory out of nothing” everyone will begin to notice that vote whoring is now job one.

    Replace “the ISIL death cult” with “Islam” in the quotation and he’s right.

    ‘The point I keep making is that islam has nothing to do with any religion, any real religion. It has nothing to do with any particular community. It is something to which sick individuals succumb.’

    No, Tony it is Islam that has nothing to do with any religion, any real religion and ISIS is Islam in action.

  • Pete_Brewster

    But Pauline Hanson is the crazy one. Obviously.

  • He said ” the ISIL death cult has nothing to do with any religion”.

    The truth is ” the ISIL death cult is just another interpretation of the cult of Islam”.

    It is something to which sick individuals succumb.’ — Yes, that is true, and It is Islam.

    It would appear that the Prime Minister’s newspaper is the Sydney Moaning Herald, not the Daily Telegraph.
