It’s a conspiracy!
Foreigner Uncle Rupert’s Australian foreign editor Greg ‘Massacre? What Massacre?’ Sheridan reckons the ABC (Gay BC amirite?) has been conspiring with David Marr to launch an attack upon Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.
‘Cause Tony’s a Catholic and they hate Catholics.
Marr’s essay contains a story about how The Mad Monk monstered a fellow student politician, Barbara Ramjan, back in 1977.
This attack upon The Monk has greatly angered Greg, and despite Marius Benson’s attempts to silence him, Sheridan’s effectively blown the lid off the whole thing:
“You might want to censor me but I want to say something here. This is the most disgraceful, sectarian, anti-Catholic campaign I’ve ever seen and the ABC should hang its head in shame for what it has given – uncritical and worshipful coverage to the most disgracefully incompetent, sloppy, inaccurate, vindictive piece of nasty writing by David Marr that has ever been produced. Not a scrap of evidence about it, not a single eyewitness, and nothing alleged in the first place anyway and if this was happening about any other politician it would be laughed out of court…
The importance of Tony Abbott being my best friend at that time is that we discussed every single aspect of any event of that kind whatsoever and nothing like that ever happened. This is just a smear campaign against a bloke… And you blokes are exaggerating an absurd and ridiculous – preposterous – tale in a way that you wouldn’t against anybody else and it comes down to anti-Catholic sectarianism on the part of the ABC and on the part of Marr… Why would the ABC give a worshipful, uncritical and unbalanced interview to David Marr on Lateline whose article is full of inaccuracies – full of inaccuracies – when Marr is a committed man of the left and motivated by an obsessive hostility to Catholicism…?”
Etc., etc., etc..
Back in April, Sheridan was sharing a coffee with his BFF Tony at University Cafe in Lygon Street when a commando unit of vicious screaming lesbian terrorists took them by surprise — the restraint the pair showed in the face of this outrageous provocation surely proof that Our Next PM is indeed A Top Bloke.
