Alan Ramsey is all too typical of our media commenta-
tors. A cowardly lying political bigot who uses his position
on the Saddam Times (aka Sydney Morning Herald) to libel
Bush and heap scorn on those who dare to suggest that the
President's policies toward the sadistic Saddam are both
sound and moral.
Quite recently Labor Party frontbenchers launched a
vicious on the American Government. Ambassador Tom Schief-
fer's response was to do his job, which is to defend the
interests of his country and its integrity. But according to
Ramsey Schieffer was "deliberately setting out to publicly
Of course, the very patriotic leftwing Ramsey was
outraged. How dare this American schmuck defend the US and
its president. Oddly, this upright Australian patriot did
not find anything objectionable about Saad Al-Samarai di-
rectly interfering in Australia's domestic affairs when he
threatened Australian wheat farmers. Nor did the same truth-
loving columnist find anything sleazy in the Labor Party
using Saad's threats against Prime Minister Howard.
As far as Ramsey is concerned, anything is fair that
apparently promotes his beloved Labor Party while defending
the murderous Saddam against the US.
But Ramsey being Ramsey could not stop with libelling
Schieffer. No sireee. He had to libel Bush by calling him a
"... a drunk, a thief, a possible felon, an unconvicted
deserter, and a cry-baby" The fact that Ramsey did this by
quoting from Michael Moore's vicious book Stupid White Men
does not alter the fact that he shares Moore's vindictive
view of Bush, which was emphasised by his description of
Bush as "a dangerous dill!" (In Australia a dill is a jerk).
At the Saddam Times, quoting hateful neo-Marxist bigots
like Moore is considered de rigueur and a clear sign of
one's intellectual depth and commitment to social justice.
That the Castro-loving Moore is a compulsive liar whose
contempt for facts would make Goebbels blush is not someth-
ing that would bother the Saddam Times. Moore's book is a
lengthy character assassination, a nasty tactic to which
Ramsey is no stranger, of President Bush by a political oaf
who is still fulminating against the Republicans' electoral
victory. It is also riddled with distortions and outright
What a charmer our Castro-grovelling Mr Moore is. Two
examples of Moore's humanity will give readers an insight
into his twisted sense of morality. Passengers on the hi-
jacked 9/11 planes were "scaredy-cats because they were
mostly white." This statement is not only insulting to the
victims and relatives of the terrorist attacks it also
contains an undercurrent of racism that suggests Moore is a
self-hating white man.
The second comment is just as revealing. This is what
he had to say to Elian Gonzalez "... your mother and her
boyfriend snatched you and put you on that death boat be-
cause they simply wanted to make more money." That's right,
folks. Moore writes Elian a letter telling him that his
mother and stepfather were just a couple of greedy wetbacks
who betrayed Castro's kindness. And for this act of
treachery they deserved, in Moore's opinion, to die.
It is truly pathetic when a leftwing political hack
like Ramsey has to try and get at President Bush by leaning
on someone as despicable as Michael Moore for moral support.
At least this spectacle, like so many others before it, has
highlighted the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the
