Adam Hills rant about Rupert Murdochs Charlie Hebdo tweets

“Seriously, can old white dudes please stop saying shitty things about Islam? Because every time they do I’m scared all Muslims will think we’re like that which is pretty much how all Muslims feel when a terrorist kills people in the name of Allah. And for those accusing me of defending Islam, and a lot have said that this week, I’m defending common sense. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world right now. 1.6 billion. As someone pointed out on twitter this week, if Islam really bred terror, we’d all be dead right now. The combined forces of Islamic State, Boko Haram and Al Qaeda makes up 0.003% of the global Muslim population. Less than 2% of all terror attacks are carried out in the name of Islam. You’ve got more of a chance of being killed by a bee sting, a peanut or the NHS. And I’m sure most Australians are lovely, but until we recognize the festering puss sore that is Rupert Murdoch maybe we need to be held accountable as well ‘cause having said all that, I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe we should be congratulating Rupert Murdoch. Because in a sorely divided world, what we need right now is unity and whether you’re a Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist or a Jew, I think we can all agree that Rupert Murdoch is a massive fuck knuckle."

The Westboro Baptist Church is an American church who have become famous for their ‘God hates fags’ slogans, and picketing of high profile funerals. This week they called Robin Williams a ‘fag lover’, and threatened to picket his funeral over his debauched and hedonistic ways. Alright. I don’t think this is okay, for a number of reasons. – Adam Hills [ x ]

Well this makes me happy.

I love the royal family. It’s just like the best soap opera ever. You know, you’ve got two sons, one of whom is the perfect prince; he’s the heir to the throne and is expecting a child. The other is on the front line of a battle but spends his time with half nude women in Vegas. Then mum died tragically in what some people still think is a conspiracy. And then at the top you’ve got a doddery old bloke and a woman who doesn’t take any shit.

If you threw in three dragons and a dwarf you’ve got season 2 of Game of Thrones.
