Q&A has made Abbott’s anti-terrorist laws a certainty

The full video of the exchange of views with Zaki Mulla is here. Graeme Morris is also very good, and puts the political problem in its proper perspective. The Twitter Feed is also worth noting.

Possibly the most amazing Q&A ever. I walked out and came back in at the end just in time to see Tony Jones go to an audience member who is a former convicted terrorist who escaped a larger punishment on a technicality. It has to be seen to be believed, but until I have the video and transcript, will have to do with the Catallaxy comments thread. This lad, in cahoots with the ABC, has established every point the PM has been trying to make about dealing with terrorists. Slightly edited. You can go to the actual thread to see the full transcript. Steve Ciobo by the way was outstanding.

The Lib looks him in the eye and sticks it to the terrorist. That made the whole night worthwhile.

IT, even the scriptwriters from “Home and Away” couldn’t produce dialogue to match this after a three day ether and golddtop binge. The audience even are a little confused, Divine is even a bit weird for the Sandalnistas.

Ciobo’s performance on all fronts was utterly superb.
He made Fitzgibbon look like a schoolboy and he destroyed the bearded turd in the cap.

They’ve got a tweet per minute count running now, FFS. FMD, sandgoblin reckons the government is recruiting for ISIS, even Snowcone for once stunned into surly silence; the anticipated ambush sort of went off in his face, his usual smug exit subdued like he’d been sprayed with a shitmist.

Strike while the iron is hot …
The Attorney-General should launch an immediate investigation into the ABC and its apparent collusion with a man convicted of threatening to kill Commonwealth employees.
Now’s when you attack the ABC with all guns blazing.

Tony Jones left speechless caught out by threat made on Q&A by a fighter who had been in Syria.
I hope he goes back to a power out he has no idea how energy is supplied.

For the record, Fitzgibbon refused to support Ciobo in saying he’d be happy for the be-capped shitball to be thrown out of the country.

We should be grateful to the be-capped shitball for one thing, however. He spoke the truth when he said Muslims angry with the government want to sate their fury by killing people. On the record and confirmed. Thanks, Q&A.

The ABC would have had to search that fellow out just to get him to unload on ciobo. Epic Dorothy fixed fail as Snowcone interrupts his rant. Instead of saying I’ll take that as a comment, he should have said l’ll take that as a death threat.

That’s right, JC.
Even I stayed on after a channel-flip.
Bear in mind that this bloke was convicted of threatening to kill Commonwealth officials.
He again threatened people live to air on television.
IMO, he should be arrested, charged again and expelled from Australia.

It sounds like it was an obvious set up by the ABC to embarrass the government.
Jones and the management should be charged with aiding and abetting terrorism.
