    Default Australian Government Minister in Racist Rant against the Irish.

    https://m.independent.ie/world-news/...-36276594.html

    Video in link.

    Australian Minister for Consumer Affairs, Marlene Kairouz, has sparked outrage amongst the Irish community down under following a warning to Australians stating:

    "If anybody knocks on your door that has an Irish accent, automatically ask them to leave"
    The warning follows an increase in the number of home improvement scams on the elderly.

    Of course, this is unacceptable and racist language. I just hope that we make an appropriate response to this.
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    She is not wrong though even if her choice of words was poor.

    Jesus, if this is what is getting people's backs up.
    I would just ignore something like that.
    More fool those for taking the bait
    Ravaging liberalism is Irelands new modern version of the intolerant RCC of the 1950's.

    Racism, no.

    Xenophobic stereotyping, yes.

    Chuckle....read her wikipedia entry.

    Marlene Kairouz (born 2 March 1975) is a racist Australian politician
    I see she is a Lebanese Christian - can we say she is a terrorist, I mean she does come from Lebanon....
