Call­ing out Chris­tensen

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I RE­FER to George Chris­tensen’s ‘Stand strong’ in the Whit­sun­day Times re­gard­ing the threat of ter­ror­ism by ISIL. I also men­tion his na­tional me­dia re­lease ‘NQ stands up to eco-ter­ror­ists’ on the 24th Septem­ber. Mr Chris­tensen has had many opin­ions re­gard­ing not only his con­stituents, but all con­cerned cit­i­zens of Aus­tralia.

Your lat­est com­ments: “green war”, “kill the coal in­dus­try, kill jobs”, “eco-ter­ror­ists”, “ex­trem­ists”, “gut­less green germs for the ter­ror­ists they are”, “ac­tivists” and “treated the same as any­one else who com­mits a crime or an act of ter­ror­ism” - how dare you. You should be ashamed of your­self and your party should haul you over the “coals”.

Are you stat­ing that peo­ple who are con­cerned for one of the seven nat­u­ral won­ders of the world (The Great Bar­rier Reef) have the same ideals as an ISIL ter­ror­ist?

We are a demo­cratic coun­try and we have the right to fight for what we be­lieve in, and what you are do­ing is de­spi­ca­ble.

You are in­cit­ing ha­tred and di­vi­sion and may even cre­ate a lo­cal war that could re­sult in vi­o­lence; this is not a true rep­re­sen­ta­tion of your con­stituents.

George Chris­tensen “Stand­ing up for Mackay, the Whit­sun­days, Bowen, the Bur­dekin and Townsville” - what a load of rub­bish.

You have taken sides. You are di­vid­ing com­mu­ni­ties in­stead of bring­ing us all to­gether.

There is no democ­racy in what you are do­ing. You have taken sides against your own con­stituents when your job is to unite the com­mu­nity. Lynne Barr CAN­NON­VALE
