Misty Eyed

The Prime Minister describes asylum seeker policy opponents as “misty eyed”. They are not – they are furious.

Peter Llewellyn
Peter Llewellyn We sure are.

Sheila Ryan
Sheila Ryan I am more than angry.I am not misty eyed.I am determined not to vote for either major party this election.All their policies are directed to keeping them in power,not for the good of the Australian people.I am not responsible for Humans being locked up and torured —concentration camps in the Nazi way.However I am responsible because I am an Australian and my government makes these cruel decisions.

Peter Llewellyn The “misty eyed” comment plus Dutton’s unconscionable attempt to shift the blame to asylum seeker advocates are among the most insulting things I’ve heard. It is one thing to write vile abusive stuff on FB posts, quite another for the government of this country, the PM no less, to vilify some of its finest citizens for standing up for the oppressed.#bringthemhere

Jacob King As despicable is his attempt to blame journalists for inflaming passions.

Julie Stirling Misty eyed? We clearly see the inhumanity of this government and shed tears of rage, shame and frustration.

Brian Leslie Blackwell Alas, people like Dutton, Turnbull, Abbott are beyond insult. You cannot insult them because they lack the ability to look inwards on themselves. We waste our breath on them. They are hollow men, bereft of any moral compass. They will go to their graves chanting their own mantras, never conceding a mistake, never taking blame for anything. They are a pestilence, a gnawing cancer at the very soul of this nation.

Kerry Morgan
Kerry Morgan The only reason the government has not been called on this is that they continue to play on people’s fears of terrorism – fear which is regularly stoked by the media.
