Andrew Bolt on the recent racial violence at the tennis:

"We need to stop multiculturalism"

I'd be so intrigued to know how we'd do that without resorting to large-scale genocide. Oh, wait, that was the plan.

I can't understand why anyone would want a return to the "good old days" of 1950s, white Australia monoculture. Australia, and in particular Melbourne, has such rich diversity with so many benefits.

The most obvious benefit, of course, is food. I find it hard to imagine living in a city in which it's difficult to find: rice paper rolls, kebabs, wanton noodle soup, kabana, souvlaki, dim sims, bratwurst, real Turkish delight, lasagne, lamb vindaloo, etcetera. "Stopping multiculturalism" would mean an end to all these foods in our diet. I'd be really interested to know if dear Andrew only ever eats meat and veg, because if he eats anything approaching the food of another culture he's a goddamn hypocrite (yes, I know, I know).

And that's not getting into the plethora of cultural opportunities we would miss out on.

I have to say though, I am convinced that most of what Andrew Bolt spews forth he himself doesn't even believe. I've heard him speak and debate and, unlike the Pauline Hansons of the world, he seems like a reasonably intelligent fellow. And, since anyone with half a brain can tell that Andrew Bolt is full of shit, I reckon Andrew Bolt himself knows that he is full of shit. When you think about it, he has simply built up a media persona that argues the controversial side of every issue, because that's what keeps him in the paper and on the radio, and that's what gets his head on TV. And if that's really the case, that just makes him all the more evil, because there are so many stupid people out there who take his horrible, racist bullshit onboard.
