One of them, Senator Scott Ludlam, even went so far as to oppose Australian supply to Israel of body armour (like bullet-proof vests) that is used to protect the lives of young Israeli soldiers from bullets and bombs. Weâ€™re unaware of such protective gear ever taking a life, they are designed to protect the lives of the twenty-somethings and teenagers who are obliged by law to join the army for usually three years to take part in defending the Jewish state from its many sworn enemies.
Ludlamâ€™s view is so obviously disgusting that itâ€™s little wonder he wore sunglasses to shield his eyes from view during his remarks.
Another, former Goth, SA Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, known to harbour leadership aspirations in the radical left party, was also pictured addressing a similar rally where attendees urged Israelâ€™s destruction through boycotts.
At both rallies, the standard chant from the ultra-left group organisers, echoed through the crowd â€œIsrael out of Palestine.â€ They donâ€™t mean Israel out of Gaza (which it already is) or the West Bank (where similarly the Palestinian Authority run the place, not especially well), they mean Israel should be wiped from the map.
Itâ€™s particularly interesting that these two Senators, one of them (Ludlam) thought to be quite close with Brown, frequent and support such extremist gatherings. We note WA Labor Senator Louise Pratt attended too. Itâ€™s just as inappropriate, even though she wasnâ€™t demanding boycotts. No wonder Labor in WA barely has a pulse if sheâ€™s the best they can do.
Brown recently condemned the few anti-Liberal loons who attended the No Carbon Tax rally in Canberra because of their foolish, nasty and misogynist signs directed at the Prime Minister.
And yet that didnâ€™t stop him from employing a comedian as an economic adviser (oddly appropriate for the Greens, we know).
â€œDolly Putinâ€ (aka NaomiÂ Edwards) has an act where at one stage she brought a pig on-stage in her live show â€˜Dolly goes down on the farmâ€™. She called the pig â€œAmanda Vanstoneâ€ much to the amusement of her politically correct inner-city crowd whoâ€™d be convulsed in horror if any of the three little anti-Israel pigs of the Greens party were so described.
