The critics of plans to offer asylum to white South African farmers (eg the Greens) are morally bankrupt and stupid to boot.
Morally bankrupt because they pretend that the selection criteria is the colour of their skin, not the violent persecution waged against them with the encouragement of their own Government. And stupid because it is manufactured for attempted political point scoring which boomerangs back on them.
By failing to condemn (or even recognise) the violence and the persecution against that specific group of people in the current South African tragedy, these moral zeros are complicit in both. The irony is that it is they who are acting like racists, citing the potential refugees’ skin colour, while busy calling Peter Dutton one, who (as a Minister) is exercising compassion on behalf of all Australians.
But aren’t we glad they are making such a noise with it? It demonstrates their hollowness, their lack of humanity and their political colour: nasty. In pursuit of any opportunity to label their political opponents as racists and bigots, they are blindly acting like racists and bigots. Stupid is as stupid does.
