ANY CAUSE IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR HATERS
THE spitting, snarling protesters outside the Tony Abbott tribute dinner in Eveleigh on Friday night had to be seen to be believed.
Ostensibly protesting against Manus Island, they lunged at Abbott’s sister Christine Forster as she arrived, and ripped her jacket in half. Other guests were pelted with tomatoes and Abbott’s 93-year-old father Dick had to be carried to safety by police officers.
If it weren’t for the police, people would have been hurt.
“Death to Dutton” read a protest banner, although Immigration Minister Peter Dutton was spared the sight, since he slipped in a side entrance with his bodyguards.
Another guest recognised faces from previous protests against same-sex marriage, showing that for left-wing haters, any cause will do.
