Abdel-Mageid recorded 7 months before Anzac Day, "If I (rubbished) the Anzacs & Gallipoli I would get crucified"

Ben Fordham's 2GB Sydney Live radio show picked up on this story today - thank you Ben for the credit to our site.

 

 

Abdel-Magied's duplicitous apology after her offensive Anzac Day tweet.

“It was brought to my attention that my last post was disrespectful, and for that, I apologise unreservedly,” she said.

If you've been inclined to give Ms Abdel Mageid the benefit of any doubt about her intentions on Anzac Day, listen to the woman herself describing - or planning  - the sleight and anticipating its consequences.

She knew precisely what she was doing.

And played it for publicity.

Oooops?  I don't think so.

We've been taken for mugs by a publicity seeking no character blow-in, prepared to knowingly trash a commemoration of deep significance for a majority of Australians - to draw attention to herself.

Today she's reported as saying she feels unfairly treated over her Anzac Day post.

Really?  Listen on.

This extract of the audio from that recording is unedited it commences about 18 minutes into the Facebook post above. 

 

 

"... I don’t know, like I feel like sometimes people get annoyed if you
want to claim anything for yourself or want to say well actually something
is sacred umm... and then, and, but I’m not able to take it the other way
around. So if I went around saying well, the ANZACS were kinda rubbish,
you know like Gallipoli, what is that, I would get crucified. I mean look
at me, I’m a brown Muslim woman. Like imagine if I went around hating on
Gallipoli? People would die. I would, like, but... anything that is
deem... that I deem as sacred, is fair game.."

And a tremendous debt of gratitude to Seeker of Truth for pointing out the location and contents of that recording.
