Channel 9 cameraman calls Australian Muslim a “fucking terrorist” and then his reaction is used by the media to portray “Muslim gets angry at cameraman”.
Look at this prime example of just how messed up Australia’s media is. Look at how desperate they are to fuel the xenophobia that’s sweeping through the country since the introduction of Tony Abbott’s new “Terror Laws” and raising the Terror Alert. It’s absolutely disgusting.
HIs voice is breaking because he’s fucking fed up with this bullshit and its no wonder.
The level to which the media in this country can (and does) influence the thoughts of the people is fucking terrifying. That they would go to these lengths to push their perspective… well I guess once you’ve gotten this far it’s not that surprising.
this event occured in 2010 and is not an attempt to fuel xenophobia in relation to the new terror laws and raised terror alert. however, there is no doubt that the idiotic (and yet, most popular) commercial news networks are attempting to fuel xenophobia, period. this is so unfair and I am so angry because no one should be treated like a second-class citizen particularly for something as ridiculous as ethnicity which is shown through their appearance. it is so bizarre and so illogical to characterise someone as a terrorist purely because of their surname or their religion. it makes me sick to my stomach.
