It will pain me not to go to the Salzburg Festival to hear soprano Anna Netrebko sing, or to Covent Garden to see Valery Gergiev conduct, or to Melbourne to watch Daniil Medvedev at the Australia Open. But these morally deficient individuals have refused to step up to the plate…”
Geoffrey Robertson: What responsibility do Russians bear for Putin?
Does Robertson call for all Muslims to personally condemn or apologise for Islamist terrorist attacks?
If not, why not?
By his own standards he should.
Russians – especially very prominent ones – face the very real threat of repercussions to themselves and families if they speak out against Putin.
Easy for people like Robertson to speak out when he is in no danger of retribution.
On this, Brendan O’Neill is absolutely correct.
The Ron Paul Institute has thoughts on this subject…
Look at where it has now led:
This felt like an MSM story, and sure enough, the Australian, with Robertson tattooing himself as a useful idiot. One has to admire anyone who claims to know which propaganda is true.
It gets more and more like the Reformation, with MSM standing in for mainstream church, and the internet for the printing press.
China believes it controls the internet. Governments they may control or direct the narrative, they can’t control the discourse.
Collective punishment is morally deficient.
Those who call for it likewise.
Do the sacrifices the Elites are willing to suffer have no end?
The Australian government should be officially apologising to the English for lumbering them with Robertson. The accent on this Eastwood scrubber alone should be classified as some sort of crime against humanity. Not even Mike “Air Hellair” Carlton went this far.
Robertson is just another grifter.
Robertson slides from an investigation to an indictment – the findings known before the investigation.
Oh yeah right. These clowns – there’s 80 of them at the minute – with a budget of $40 mil have precisely zero charges, let alone convictions, after 17 months of ‘investigating’ 19 diggers. And this after four years of another bunch of Afghan war ‘investigators’ producing the pathetic ‘Brereton report’.
If anyone is ‘morally deficient’ it’s these fuckwits.
Oh, and according to Robertson, the Orthodox are a problem, mainly because they own ‘property’. Churches. He does not advocate we burn them, the churches, that is. As for the Patriarch, well, he can burn. Spare the Orthodox Christian congregations, though. No question, they should be deported.
To think that such views are held and published in Australia. Reads like a genocide plan.
After lying to their own citizens of course.
Fake accents like his always grate. They are not natural and lack the pleasantness of the true accent.
Hypothetical Robertson is an hypothetical person.
Can I equally despise both?
The ICC, an Alexander Downer gift.
