Tim Blair, Andrew Bolt’s opposite number in Sydney, today parades what he believes is his credential that protects him from being labelled the racist he actually is.
Apparently Blair is a little worried about the progress a 17-year-old boy he’s sponsoring through World Vision is making.
If anyone else were sponsoring kids through World Vision then I’d say ‘Good on them’, but I really have to wonder about Tim Blair’s motives since he is such a well known racist and especially since he is clearly trying to create an image of being a philanthropic caring Aussie who is concerned about kids in Zimbabwe by publicising it on his blog. The reality, of course, is that’s all it is about; image.
In my opinion, the only two reasons Blair sponsors this lad from Africa is, one; to attampt to create an image that precludes him from being labelled a racist and, two; providing sponsorship will likely ensure that he stays in Africa and not come to Australia.
Once a racist, always a racist.
