Fresh from vile fear-mongering about communists and homosexuals in the 1950s, Republican Senator Joe McCarthy has taken on spirit form to haunt the national broadcaster. McCarthy refused to appear at a democratic forum last night as a matter of principle, the principle of demonising political opponents.
In what would have been his 207th appearance on Q & A, McCarthy has been in full swing since he told a young Muslim man on national television last week “I’m happy to look you straight in the eye and say that I’d be pleased to be part of a government that would say you’re out of the country.”
McCarthy has demanded that the witches/communists/homosexuals/Muslims/asylum seekers/ABC dutifully play their role as sacrificial lambs on the altar of power.
Sadly for McCarthy’s ghost, his medieval techniques of population control are entirely transparent.
