"Same old Aussies, always cheating," goes the Barmy Army chant, and it's impossible to be offended now. When Smith said of the Cape Town episode, "This is not what we’re about", he was thinking wishfully. This is what they are about. They did it, they were caught doing it, and they have admitted not only doing it but planning it. What they are about is what they have done.This is more than just a metaphor of Bolt's Australian Culture it's his pride in a culture of cheats.
Andrew Bolt called the South Africans Barbarians for sledging. Peter Dutton called them uncivilized while they all yelled Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi. Ugly egos and role models one and all who will do anything in their interest to win with no respect to the game and they call this the "Civilized" nation. It all began with John Howard and his righteous invasion of Iraq and babies overboard and was cemented in the attitude of Tony Abbott in how to play politics and destroy our Democracy. Cheat bowl fake news at the public day after day and they will believe they're watching the game we call Democracy.
Our Banks are caught cheating and we are about to reward them with a $69 billion corporate tax cut. Our Christian Institutions caught with a history of wealth accumulation based on an industry of Child molesting and Bolt runs cover for them. Our education systems culturally single out those we regard as cultural mutants and not equal and Bolt rails against "safe schools" When will we learn that he promotes the minority the cultural exception that demotes the majority and the very notion of what we hold dear a "Fair Go".
Australia facing accusations of hypocrisy amid ball-tampering furore
GREENS LIE ABOUT DUTTON. END THIS CULTURE OF SMEAR
THE AUSTRALIAN CHEATING TEAM
The sad thing Steve Smith and our Cricket team were raised in an era of Howard, Abbott, and a Media environment where the only grinners are winners and fuck the game whether politics, media, debate or cricket. That's what Bolt barracks for and it's the way he plays the game. Convicted liar 3 if not more times by the courts and simply too many other times. Lied about his education, lied about his personal relationships etc etc etc and lying for Dutton in the above blog. So it goes he's the role model here.
