Michael Danby – Federal Labor MP of Melbourne Ports, rabid Zionist and supporter of censorship – says he believes in equality for all. After he called for my forthcoming book on the Israel/Palestine conflict to be stopped and seemingly unable to produce an accurate calender for his electorate, the Melbourne Age reports that he’s been searching for the gay vote:
And speaking of Mick, at least he got the date right for the 2006 Gay Pride march. He was seen there [Victoria’s National Gallery] on Sunday, striding along perkily with fellow Labor types in search of the pink vote. Danby’s name even featured on the back of the T-shirts worn by the parade marshals, proclaiming his devotion to equal rights. Danby is the dude who last year urged his disciples not to buy a book (by Jewish author Antony Loewenstein) that he had not read and which had yet to be published. Apparently equal rights excludes publishers.
