Bummer: Terror Threats Are A Distraction From ‘Climate Change’

Waleed Aly, an Australian born to Egyptian parents, is supposedly the face of “moderate Islam”. However, he has also been accused of being part of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, of being a celebrity Muslim apologist, and other support for radical Islam. He writes this piece

Focus on terror threats a convenient distraction from climate change

Something illuminating always happens when terrorism and climate change are juxtaposed. It’s just that you need to remember to see it.

Take the past week, when variously our state, territory and federal governments agreed to introduce a suite of new counter-terrorism laws, while the Turnbull government reached such a point of paralysis on climate change that it even hinted it wouldn’t proceed with the clean energy target for which it has spent months laying foundations.

The contrast could hardly be starker. Extending the limits of counter-terrorism legislation in Australia is now a frictionless process. The really attentive might notice the odd squeak of concern about civil liberties, but it carries little public weight and even less political momentum, so legislative change just happens. Climate change, meanwhile, is not just beset by friction, it’s positively jammed. Even modest suggestions – and there is good analysis suggesting the Finkel report’s clean energy target is environmentally inadequate – become politically untenable. Consequently, nothing much happens.

This continues on and on and on. What Aly really wants is for the Australian government to stop spending so much time dealing with the real threat of Islamic terrorism, and switch to the fake issue of Hotcoldwetdry. One has to wonder what the real motivation here is.

    Mr. Aly “has also been accused…” blah, blah, blah. Smear the messenger much? MR. TEACH has been accused of running a white supremacist blog. Dotard tRump has been accused of raping a child and has admitted to sexual assault.

    Mr. Aly, born in Australia, teaches at Monash University in Melbourne, is a lawyer, a published author, a husband, father and guitar player in a rock band. What have you done? LOL.

    His point was that residents of Western nations are giving up too many of their intrinsic freedoms out of fear of terrorism, and that Western gov’ts are all too willing to further control their residents. Conservatives should understand and fear this too.

    Listen, you should be happy. The Con Men have won. Draconian controls on the populace are being put in place and global warming is a political albatross. You won! You get to control the citizens AND nothing will be done about CO2 emissions. Add in gov’t support of white supremacy and it’s a conservative utopia!

      The idiots on the left have so worn out the “racist” smear that they changed it to “white supremacy”. It’s a tell that the user has no argument.

        boB,

        Racist or white supremacist… pretty much the same, and in decent America, nothing to be proud of.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          As before you are our number one racist.

        • Bob spelled backwards says:

          When one hears : white supremacist, chemtrails, the patriachy, xe/xir/xim, otherkin, and the like, it’s a dead giveaway that the speaker is a lunatic and/or imbecile. Keep it up, it makes it easier to find the retards.

          • Jeffery says:

            When one hears antifa, Benghazi!, illegals, communists, middle class tax cuts, repeal and replace, and the like, it’s a dead giveaway that the typist is a lunatic and/or imbecile. Or worse, an American right-winger.

    “Racist or white supremacist, pretty much the same.” Exactly. More name-calling in lieu of reasoned argument. Which is why you’ll see J on these pages constantly…..name-calling.

  3. Jeffery says:

    White supremacy is not name-calling but describes a political/social philosophy. At least one frequent commenter describes himself as a white supremacist.

    Anyway, nice diversion. We didn’t ACCUSE Mr. TEACH of being a white supremacist, only that he has been accused of being a white supremacist. Similar to how Mr. TEACH related that Mr. Aly had been accused of being a “celebrity Muslim apologist”. Is TEACHs name-calling acceptable?

    WE didn’t accuse Dotard tRump of being a white supremacist but only that others have accused him of supporting white supremacists.

    • Bob spelled backwards says:

      “WE didn’t accuse Dotard tRump of being a white supremacist but only that others have accused him of supporting white supremacists.”

      So, you didn’t call people white supremacists, you just “heard” that they were? Sack up, stand by your words or shut up, otherwise we might think you a coward. To be quite frank with you, I think that despite the fact that you will never see any of these folks in real life you are a craven coward and just a little girl, and you’re just scared. Poor little thing.

    boB,

    But we were just using The TEACHs construct for smearing someone. The TEACH typed “he has also been accused of being part of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, of being a celebrity Muslim apologist, and other support for radical Islam”. See? TEACH pointed out that others accused Mr. Aly of those awful things.

    We are just reporting that “some” have accused TEACH of running a white supremacist blog and that Dotard tRump supports white supremacists.

    Just as The TEACH doesn’t accuse Mr. Aly of being a Muslim extremist, we don’t accuse The tEACH of being a white supremacist.

    To be quite frank with you, we think that you are a craven coward and just a little girl, and you’re just scared. Poor little thing.

  5. Jl says:

    Bottom line- as usual J has no proof those called white supremacists really are, Which is why he continually uses the term in lieu of “argument”. “We didn’t accuse Trump of being a white supremacist, only others accused him of supporting white supremacists.” You should work for the NYT-“sources say…..”. So do those “others” have proof? Of course they don’t, yet you still use the term, which is the point.

  6. Jeffery says:

    sigh..

    j, Did tEACH offer proof that Mr. Aly was a supporter of violent Islamism? No. He just recited the claims HE claims others made.

    Is it wrong for the NYT to say “some say” but OK for The tEACH?

    • Did tEACH offer proof that Mr. Aly was a supporter of violent Islamism?

      Please point out where I wrote violent Islamism. Funny, sounds like you’re rather bigoted, thinking that all Muslims are violent.
