Whilst I usually try and stay away from the various internet and blog wars, tonight on twitter something fired me up. Whilst us political tragics and nerds gathered around twitter to collectively watch the Obama interview with the #obama730 tag we noticed a few racial slurs.
The gentleman who tweeted them has since locked his account but we have preserved them.
A quick read of his twitter stream informed me that he is a member of the Young Liberal National Party, has written for conservative think tank Menzies House and is the secretary of the Griffith Rural Health Association.
My question to both the LNP and the Rural Health Association is what do you intend to do to discipline this behaviour? Do you want a noted racist in your ranks? How does it reflect on you as a group if you tolerate this?
I started a tweet to ask the Young Liberal National Party what they will do.
If you are on twitter please retweet it, they can’t ignore all of us.
Elsewhere. Darryl Mason on Nick Sowdon.
UPDATE Some have tried to excuse his racism as a very poor attempt at humour. This could be true, but things like this dont look too good for him.
And obviously involved in the Liberal Party for some time.
And the story hits the MSM
