COMMENT: Andrew Bolt's World Cup Nightmare ...

It’s amazing what crazy thoughts enter your brain in the early hours. One recent Monday morning, an hour or so past midnight, I was sitting in my room trying to stay awake for the World Cup final. I needed some comic relief. While perusing Andrew Bolt’s Herald Sun blog, I suddenly wondered who the f*ck would fill Fred Nile’s NSW Upper House seat after he retires at the next NSW election. I then came across these words:

Only a fool could not see a problem in importing more people from a faith that sets many so apart from, and at odds to, the culture of their host country.

No more Muslim immigrants. Indeed, Nile finally has someone bigoted enough to replace him.

Still, if Bolt’s wish comes true, there are other Western countries happy to accept Muslim migrants. Especially ones that can play football like Sami Khedira, the son of a Tunisian migrant who holds both German and Tunisian passports. Talk about dual loyalties, ay Mr Bolt?

Khedira managed to score the final goal for Germany the other night against Uruguay. Khedira’s header was magnificent, and did justice to the marvellous corner kick from German striker Mesut Oezil.

Oezil is regarded as one of the best footballers on the planet. He recites verses from the Koran before each game which he says helps him to focus. Oezil acknowledges his game has a kind of racial split personality. He told The Guardian:

My technique and feeling for the ball is the Turkish side to my game, the discipline, attitude and always-give-your-all is the German part.

Talk about conflicting values, ay Andrew?

Like all star footballers, Oezil has been the subject of much gossip. In late June, German newspaper Der Spiegel reported that model and Oezil’s long time girlfriend Anna-Maria Lagerblom, younger sister of Pop Star Sarah Connor, had decided to adopt her boyfriend’s faith. Talk about forced conversions, ay Andy? Rumours are rife that the couple got engaged after the game in which Germany defeated Ghana.

Then of course there is 29 year old Dutchman Khaled Boulahrouz. If Bolt was born in Holland, he might have had something in common with Boulahrouz. Boulharouz’s devotion to his country to his country is such that when his daughter Annisa died after a premature birth, he still played. His team-mates wore black armbands in solidarity.

Two other Dutch players with links to the faith Bolt must fear are Ibrahim Afellay [url: ] (of Moroccan descent) and Robin van Persie whose wife is of Moroccan descent.

Bolt will surely faint when he learns of the extent to which the dreaded unintegrateable Islamist jihadist Taliban burqa-wearing al-Qaeda conspiracy has spread across European football. Here are just a few names of sleeper-cell leaders I located on the FIFA website: Hakan Yakin (Swiss-Turkish), Franck Ribery (French - convert), Xherdan Shaqiri (Swiss – Kosovar Albanian) and Serdar Tasci (German – Turkish).

With so many of them blasted European Muslims, it’s little wonder this World Cup was such an explosive tournament. Still, Andrew will be happy that no African teams made it to the final. I mean, we all know how much trouble them Africans cause! I mean, check out this dude ...

COMMENT: Always be polite when wishing a woman be raped ...

In an extraordinary defence of Mel Gibson published on the Herald Scu ... woops ... Sun website, Andrew Bolt makes this remark:

Gibson, it’s said, is now finished in Hollywood after Oksana Grigorieva, mother of his daughter, taped him ranting over their relationship and her flaunting of her siliconed body.

For instance: “I am going to come and burn the f------ house down.”

And: “You look like a f------ pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n------, it will be your fault.”

Now we have celebrities demanding Gibson’s films be boycotted, but why is he the chief villain here? I don’t approve of his language, but approve even less of Grigorieva’s entrapment of him - and the exposure of what he had every right to expect was a private conversation.

Yep. Mentioning rape is fine in the context of a private conversation. But try to be polite about it. Don't use impolite language.

And you thought Keysar Trad's defence of Hilaly was bad.
