Something that would never happen in America the brave and the free—an Australian senator says that “Islam itself is the problem.”
The Australian Herald Sun reports:
Islam’s the problem, not Muslims, says Senator Cory Bernardi
Kilroy M. writes:
It may be confusing that Senator Bernardi is a member of the “Liberal Party”. Your US readers should note that in Australia the two major parliamentary blocks are Labor and the Coalition of the Liberal and National Parties. The Liberals are the urban small business party (sort of), the Nationals are agrarian conservatives (sort of). The Coalition is therefore nominally conservative by necessity, but the Liberal Party has been thoroughly infiltrated by social liberals who push a centre-left agenda - something akin to your “RINOS” I think. It’s complicated and confusing. At least we have people like Bernardi to take a stand. There aren’t many like him, but he has a great deal of popular support.LA writes:
It occurs to me that the title of this entry may be incorrect, since Rep. Allen West may have said something along these lines.
