The Herald Sun has today dedicated another 10 or inches to the musings of a shiraz conservative who has been having an unpleasant time locked down in his 13-bedroom sandstone mansion in Toorak.
Murdoch darling, and convicted bigot, Andrew Bolt has today notched his 100th opinion column about what he believes to be the causes of Victoria’s 816 deaths from the novel coronavirus.
In this most recent piece of spectacularly racist dog-whistling, Andrew Bolt declares ‘MULTICULTURALISM MADE THIS VIRUS WORSE’ – which is the type of narrative you would look to create if your entire career was based on divisive rhetoric that pits people against each other.
Throughout his recent columns, Bolt has been relentless in his criticisms of the Victorian Premier for his overzealous public health measures, which were put in place after it became clear that Melbourne residents had become complacent with their social distancing, which could likely be a result of his first 50 opinion columns which undermined the seriousness of this pandemic – going as far to say that face masks are useless in preventing the spread of airborne bacteria.
However, Bolt has been upfront over the years as to why he does what he does.
It’s not because his controversial right-wing clickbait makes him one of the highest paid columnists in the dying Australian print media landscape.
It’s not because the only time he feels alive is when he vilifies vulnerable people.
And it’s not because he is desperately seeking purpose in this life of his, after spending his young adulthood trying and failing to be accepted by the left-wing elite at the University of Adelaide.
It’s because he knows that if he doesn’t defend the poor old men stuck in 13-bedroom mansions in the most expensive suburbs in Melbourne, no one will.
And also, because he has directions from Rupert Murdoch to create as much division as possible within Australian society and install corrupt Liberal party control of every level of government, because the Labor Party don’t just hand out $890 million tax rebates when asked to.
At time of press, Bolt was preparing the headline for his 101st article.
I DEMAND PREMIER ANDREWS END THIS LOCKDOWN IMMEDIATELY SO I CAN GO BACK TO VILIFYING AFRICAN TEENAGERS PLAYING BASKETBALL ON THE ST KILDA FORESHORE, it reads.
“Hmmm. Is that it?” he asks himself.
“What about this one?” he continues typing.
I DEMAND PREMIER ANDREWS END THIS LOCKDOWN IMMEDIATELY SO I CAN GO BACK TO PUBLICLY QUESTIONING WHETHER OR NOT TRAUMATISED CHOIRBOYS ARE RELIABLE WITNESSES FOR CHILD ABUSE CONVICTIONS BECAUSE THEY DEVELOPED DRUG ADDICTIONS AFTER BEING MOLESTED
“Hey that’s more like it” he says.
