We All Need to be Calm and Tolerant By Bruce Bennett

     A big storm about nothing; a misunderstanding taken out of context, of course. Words do not mean what they mean, but rather, something else; maybe anything the elites want them to mean. Death threats may really be invitations of love:

“Scott Morrison says Turkey’s President has “moderated his views” after the Prime Minister took him on over his “very offensive” outburst against Australians. Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s office today said the President’s comments that Australians with anti-Muslim views would be sent back in coffins like “their grandfathers (in Gallipoli)” were taken out-of-context and that he welcomed Anzac Day visitors. The Prime Minister responded by stating “progress has been made” and that there would be further meetings with Turkish officials. “Overnight, progress has been made on this issue and overnight we’ve already seen a moderation of the president’s views,” he said.

     What “moderation” is not exactly clear, but common sense would dictate exercising extreme care in entering this area, just in case. See, when somebody says that others will be sent home in coffins like their grandparents, that statement must be subjected to politically correct hermeneutics (interpretation), and it seldom means what we may think. It could even mean exactly the opposite if politics requires. Of course, if a statement was made by a nationalist, that by definition is evil, and to be condemned, even 1+ 1=2.  No interpretation sympathy there.
