One tunes into the Bolter’s blog less and less these days. Like MySpace and torturing children in desert prison camps, he seems so early ‘zeroes.
But this one caught the eye:
“How can the ABC ban whites, Irish and Jews from applying for this nice job:
Work type:Ongoing Full Time
$46,638 – $58,368 p.a.
This vacancy is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people only, which reflects the objectives of the ABC’s Equity and Diversity Management Plan and the Equal Employment Opportunity (Commonwealth Authorities) Act 1987. “
And how can it at the bottom of this very same blacks-only ad make this boast:
The ABC is an equal opportunity employer.
Clearly it’s not. Something must go: either the racist restriction or the boast of being non-racist. Or are these people liars as well as racists?
There follows the usual, apartheid Bolt swatch, where he questions the aboriginality of people with pale skin.
But of course the interesting thing is the insertion of ‘Jews’, which Bolt appears to believe to be a racial, rather than religious category. He’s wrong of course. By both conversion and family heritage, there are a number of aboriginal Jews, one or two of them prominent figures I won’t embarrass by dragging their names into this morass.
Bolt’s so eager to have a crack at the left/ABC?Ruddite/freemasons, that he revives the notion of Judaism as an exclusive, and racial, category, as last favoured by, erm, ….the Nazis.
Well played Bolter!
