Minority groups target of vilification

The Howard Government’s vilification of indigenous communities and their culture is another in a long line of morally repugnant diversionary tactics employed by a Government devoid of ideas and scrambling to retain the interest of the electorate. When the history of this Government is written, the events in recent times should be placed side-by-side with the shameful exploitation of refugees, the wicked fear-mongering that followed the Wik decision, the gay bashing in 2004 and the demonisation of drug-users in terms of the most unethical political strategies employed in its decade of power.
