#iwonthaveabeerwithyou

As night follows day, the Australians aren’t wasting an opportunity to tell those that aren’t welcome to go away.   Of course, this does upset some other people.

A Queensland cafe has come under fire for an anti-Muslim sign only a week after Australians appeared to unite against Islamophobia.

The owner of Eagle’s Nest Bar and Grill in Longreach has refused to apologise for a sign that reads “sorry, no Muslims”.

The words came at the bottom of a sandwich sign which also said: “2000 years ago Jesus Christ made headlines turning water into wine…the tradition continues…We turn money into bear”.

Hundreds of people have vented on the cafe’s Facebook page condemning the sign, calling for it to be taken down.

The #illridewithyou was a farce.  There was no uniting of Australia against Islamophobia.  Now, I realise Islam isn’t a race, but there is some overlap that  explains why Australians have reacted this way.

And they are not alone.  With Muslim extremists the world over cutting off people’s heads, shooting people dead at point blank range, you’d have to be insane to expect everyone to not form an opinion about Islam.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
