Khan, there’s no asylum seeker panic unless you make one

Is it something I ate? I am forced to agree once again with Andrew Bolt!

I noted that Amnesty International secretary general Irene Khan says Australia has a ‘panic mentality ‘about asylum seekers.

“There’s a lot of panic here when you think there are 3000 asylum seekers arriving in Australia,” she told SBS. Panic mentality consuming Australians

There is not a panic.  There are some arguing that we are being flooded. There are others arguing that we should take more. The people with most to say on the issue are politicians who are trying to gain political mileage out of the issue.

If someone in Khan’s position says that there is a ‘panic’, however, the comment itself adds to any embers of hysteria.

She has done the voices of reason about asylum seekers a disservice by speaking in this way.

I shall quote a few words of Andrew Bolt’s response-

‘Panic isn’t really the right word, is it, Ms Khan? I’d say we just don’t like having our hospitality abused…’

No Amnesty on Khan’s nonsense
