That’s a big “if”

Andrew Bolt asks:

Andrew Bolt asks:

If Afghanistan is this safe, then why are they coming?

…If parts of Afghanistan are safe enough to build a new housing project to house rejected asylum seekers, why do we take any Afghan refugees at all?

I don’t think he’s joking.

    Holdenback – rather like the HG & Roy skit of dropping off someone in Soweto, from a Hippo, weariing just a HANG MANDELA tee shirt, and yellking “thanks for your valuable information!”

    They should send bolty to Afghanistan , to get a factual story, bed in with the troops for a year. He could help clear mines , cut the red wire Andrew. Sorry , the green wire.

    [Bloods05 I thought the clogwogs just pulled out of Oruzgan?]

    That’s true. I’m sure they had their reasons, and we can rely on Andrew to explain them. But when their dykes collapse and they’re all under 2 metres of seawater and their clogs are scattered all over the North Sea, they’d better not come crying to the Afghans!

    [Now that Andrew believes it is safe no doubt he will call for the return of our troops and visit on a holiday]

    Another way of looking at the issue might be “If Afghanistan is in such a serious state that we can’t possibly commit even to a timetable for the withdrawal of troops (http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/gillard_hangs_tough_on_afghanistan) then why are we so opposed to accepting refugees from there”?

    Or, more simply “How does Andrew Bolt look at himself in the mirror, and what on earth does he see?”

    [I’m guessing the Clown Prince has never heard of the Hazara. It’s all beer and skittles for those people.]

    I’m guessing he knows exactly how it is for them, and he’s just playing to the crowd.

    Cue complaints about bicycle-riding socialist libertarians from our man.

    [Oh hell, that means there’ll be more of them when the sea-level rises kick in.]

    Afghanistan’s altitude is much higher than ours. Much safer destination for clogwogs.

    monkeywrench, I believe spookily enough, many of the Dutch were refugees from the enormous North Sea flood in 1953.

    Bolt doesn’t read the reports on civilian deaths obviously – people get killed trying to get to weddings (ABC news this morning)

    Could we let a few more in and send Andrew to live there? It’s the only justice I can think of.

    Why oh why did we ever let in the Dutch?

    The houses were built in 2005 and are disgusting. NO-one will live in them, there is no water, no power, no fences or compounds for the women, no yards for kids, no jobs, no nothing.

  20. John Ryan

    I always thought Bolta did not have any of those,and I,m not talking about John West

  21. Ben

    Is Andrew Bolt where logic goes to die?

  22. quantize

    Wow…just wow…

    that’s a level of grubby I didn’t think even Bolt was capable of.

  23. teecha

    Tell him it’s the John West principle.
