The Chaser sees the light

8 08 2008

More Olympic cowards:

The lads from The Chaser have pulled out of a trip to Beijing to crash the Olympics, citing safety concerns.

“We talked about it, but we trust the NSW police more than the Red Army,”

Proving once again that it’s really all too easy to pull stunts at “evil” Western conservatives like Bush and Howard who will be nice to you, than confront real villains who will throw you in jail or murder your family. So brave are these guys! It remind me of a quote from Mark Steyn:

Because that’s what civilized nations like doing — chit-chatting, shooting the breeze, having tea and crumpets, talking talking talking. Uncivilized nations like torturing dissidents, killing civilians, bombing villages, doing doing doing. It’s easier to get the doers to pass themselves off as talkers then to get the talkers to rouse themselves to do anything.

At least The Chaser guys seem to understand the difference between the real villains and imaginary ones. If only John Pildger, Robert Fisk and 90% of Guradianista and The Age set also got it.
