|"LOOK BOB, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I'M EVEN|
TRYING TO DRESS LIKE YOU"
He's posted this on his Facebook site as his Member of MacKenzie website is controlled by his LNP masters in Brisbane. King's said:
"What a disgrace Bob Katter has allowed himself to become - what an appalling and low act to use a media interview to call FNQ wildlife campaigner Colin Riddle an "imbecile" on TV last night."
Imbeciles? This story is the imbecile trifecta! We're all torn - which imbecile to support? Katter, the Emperor of imbeciles calling Riddell names? Riddell, who believes that a stroke of a pen mandating "humane killings" does anything besides stroking his dugong-sized ego. As many don't know, Riddell spent seven years doing exactly what he now wants to stop the indigenous people from doing - an abattoir worker massacring animals for profit. There is little difference between slaughtering cows, pigs, turtles, or dugong to most people. And many people are appalled at the violence used to kill any animals, but accepting the fact that to feed the planet, someone has to do it.
"Col has dedicated countless hours over recent years to the cause of protecting turtles and dugongs and other wildlife and it is through his tireless work that our government recently passed laws to make cruelty to these creatures illegal."
Riddell has spent countless hours promoting himself, grabbing on to the coattails of Bob Irwin and being manipulated by Cueball MacKenzie into a "cause" clearly being used as an attack on the aboriginal community under a thin veneer of animal protection. Where is the protection from the cruelty inflicted on turtles and dugongs who are being strangled and suffocated by water devoid of oxygen due to sugar cane fertiliser runoff? Or the cruelty and violence inflicted on dugongs being run down by tourist-packed high-speed reef trip boats, who then speed away faster than Lindsay Lohan Sunset Strip hit & run?
The reality is that this change in law is so far down the list of prosecutor priorities that any attempt to enforce it will be laughed out of court. A couple hundred buck fine that will never be paid, increasing the SPERS uncollectable debt, isn't worth the ink and digital bits expended to cover this non-story.
"Katter should spend more time helping the people of his electorate of Kennedy rather than swanning around places outside of his electorate making a fool of himself"
And herein lies the imbecile at the heart of Cairns. King calling the Katter black.
So far just this week we've seen Gavin King "swanning around" Manunda, lining up for media facetime about poor drainage that is clearly a Mayor Manning & Cairns Council issue. Before that, King was "swanning around" with Grafton Street merchants, lining up a bully-boy mob to push the very successful Esplanade -based Chinese New Year festival into a block filled with dilapidated buildings selling coffee and bad greek food. Who killed those sheep, btw? More sense holding Chinese New Year at Bunnings, where every aisle is chock-full of Chinese-made products and the carpark is larger than Grafton Street.
Does Riddell know how many dugong and turtles there are? No, of course not. It seems no one does; little science has been done on the subject. Since the non-aboriginal community doesn't seem to be interested in eating these particular animals, it's easy to surmise that in the last few thousand years, indigenous people killing these animals for food didn't endanger these species all that time. The only thing that's changed? The arrival of the rest of us interlopers.
And now one of these interlopers, fattened up by them yummy other animal species that he has had no trouble whacking, is telling the native Australians THEY are being made responsible for the species decline (if there is one, remember we don't know). And oh, by the way, you're not doing the job "humanely" - whatever that is.
Imbecile? We're up to our Crocs in Imbeciles.
