Quote(s) for the Day

"Let me put it this way - we have a disease, we vaccinate ourselves against it. Islam is a disease; we need to vaccinate ourselves against that."

- Pauline Hanson, Leader One Nation Party, launching hashtag #pray4muslimban following the terrorist attack in London.
(For the benefit of overseas readers, Pauline Hanson is a controversial, conservative and right wing Australian Senator).


Does the above quote remind anyone of Agent Smith’s comments in The Matrix? . . . 

“I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species, and I realised that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment; but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer on this planet, you are a plague, and we...are the cure.”

- Agent Smith


Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce (who, as also the Minister for Agriculture, threatened to euthanase Johnny Depp's smuggled dogs for breaching quarantine regs) made his own succinct response to Senator Hanson:

“This bat-poo crazy stuff does not help anybody. It was just stupid.”

- Barnaby Joyce
