Lê, Bolt and Schubert

On our ABC's Insiders program this morning Andrew Bolt and Marion Lê discussed Asylum seekers returning to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Bolt postulated that Afghanistan and Iraq are now liberated and hasn't this country [Australia] with help, by these acts of liberation helped more refugees than any other action has?

Well, when did not agree and stated that in relation to Afghanistan, outside of Kabul, there is lawlessness, Bolt talked over her saying that is not what Misha Schubert said. Schubert had to wait until the end of the show to correct Bolt and chide him for verballing her. Bolt remained petulant and refused to acknowledge either of these women's expertise.

Bolt, it is for men like you that Dale Spender published Man Made Language in 1980.

Read it, before you get anywhere near an intelligent, dissenting woman again!

Poor old Bolt he just couldn't get away with his "liberation of these two countries and now it is safe" line. He cant resist the opportunity to push his aggenda even, if what he is hearing, doesn't help.
Doubt if any amount of travel would help him. Nothing would. His role model is dubbya and he will always remain dumb.

I was amazed how both Bolt and Price got away with butting in and talking over Misa. We've come a long way. Tooheys New anyone?

Being polite is often overrated and serves to keep discussions controlled. Misha left her voice until the last few seconds of the show with the credits already rolling ..I hope she doesn't choose polite over her right to her voice again.

Agree completely, Suki and Flutey. Poor old Mischa could barely get a word in.

Top shirt she was wearing, though ;)

Misha is no substitute for Annabel. She would never have let that tosser verbal her.
