In Andrew Bolt’s racially contorted mind, a local council that proposes to set up a playgroup for Aboriginal families that live within the community is seen by him as practicing a new apartheid.
Apartheid comes to an inner-city Melbourne council:
YARRA Council is set to invest in playgroups as it overhauls the system to cope with a baby boom.
The council has voted to employ its first full-time playgroup co-ordinator to establish and support a wider range of playgroups, including the first in the municipality for Aboriginal families....The council has ... voted to establish an Aboriginal playgroup at a cost of $4000, subject to consultation.
Once you’d swear such a council must be of the far-Right. Now you know it must be of the far-Left,
Bolt then asks:
…but what’s the difference?
The difference is simple, Bolt. The Left recognises the special needs of indigenous children and respects their heritage, while the far-Right, as represented by the transparently racist views you peddle, wants to obliterate indigenous culture and erase Aboriginal identity.
There's no apartheid here, merely a responsible community safeguarding the future of Aboriginal heritage from the ravages of rednecks and racists.
That’s the difference.
