Why do Australian politicians over-egg it when it comes to Islam?
Wednesday, 19 August 2020
NSW Multi Culty Minister Geoff Lee says he is “humbled to see the incredible work of the Redfern Islamic Society”.
They probably do good things for their community ... but humbled? Really?
You’d think, of all people, Geoff Lee would have some relativity on that feeling of being “humbled“ given he’s also the Minister for War Veterans in NSW.
Was he “humbled” to be in the presence of Vietnam Veterans yesterday for Long Tan Day?
Or World War Two and currently serving veterans for the 75th anniversary of the defeat of Japan?
Not humbled here?
Curiously, he doesn’t use that phrase - but saves all his “humble” for the Islamic Centre.
