    26 Apr 2017 ... ANZAC Day is being betrayed, and not just by some smart-alec ABC presenterlike Yassmin Abdel-Magied.

 

the unfortunate people we have displaced in wars...

 

The ABC should consider taking more action against presenter Yassmin Abdel-Magied over a controversial Anzac Day Facebook post, Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce says.

Key points:
  • Yassmin Abdel-Magied later apologised for the post
  • Barnaby Joyce warns the ABC "can't just sweep it under the carpet"
  • An ABC statement said her views were her own

In a post which she later deleted, Abdel-Magied wrote: "Lest. We. Forget. (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine…)".

The part-time Australia Wide presenter later replaced the post with one reading simply "Lest we forget", commenting that: "It was brought to my attention that my last post was disrespectful, and for that, I apologise unreservedly".

Yes... Here on this site we haven't shied of exposing the Lest We Forget our own Hypocrisy...We sow wars, or follow wars that are sowed by our "allies" often against a fabricated enemy, without looking further than pissing in our friends' pockets. The men and women who die in these "theatre of wars" should not be forgotten for their courage and sacrifice, but our leaders should be hung by the thumbs in the darkest of dungeons. But the said leaders are the same hypocrite who go on perpetuating the myths of the value of wars in someone else's backyard and lay the reefs of artificial flowers to the dead soldiers to the stirring sound of a lone bugle.

The Yassmin tweet was spot on. It did not devalue the spirit of the Anzacs but brought on par the other sacrifices made by the unfortunate people we have displaced in wars. We shan't forget them under the carpet...

And now to another thing... Forget the religious values, welcome humanism.
