Smugglers likened to WWII hero

Posted by: 6PR | 5 June, 2012 - 5:34 PM
German businessman Oskar Schindler saved the lives of over a thousand Jewish people during the Holocaust.

Refugee advocate Ian Rintoul has likened people smugglers to WWII hero Oskar Schindler. Mr Rintoul made the comments on 6PR's Drive program following revelations people smugglers have been granted visas and are running their illegal business in Australia.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Patty, I think you misrepresent Gerry Georgatos and his views and people like him. He doesn't trample over anyones views he just adds his views by insights or questions. He doesn't actually say anyone is wrong or not entitled to their view just puts his views in and this seems to offend some bloggers who get upset with his arguments and logic. I agree with you that everyone is entitled to their view and so is Gerry without it being on attack on him that he is a over educated or writes long spiels. I actually quite enjoy reading what he is writing and I actually enjoy the blogs on 6PR that have happened since Gerry joined, it's interesting to read everyone. I could suggest to 6PR management that they invite Gerry weekly to a morning program as they do others, give him half an hour with someone and talkback with people like you. I've noticed someone else also suggested this. I'd tune religiously! Regards, Peter

  • Serena, not everyone is slagging Gerry here they are expressing themselves. Maybe you should read more of Gerry's comments on these blogs. He may be a PhD, but it doesn't always mean he is right. Everyone is entitled to have a say here but Gerry often does pick out other's comments and "trample all over them". People with a normal education are entitled to have a say. They do not need someone else with a better education to tell them that their views are wrong.

  • Gerry Georgatos is a PhD, an academic, someone who works at the forefront of many human rights issues and campaigns and his work with the homeless and poor is without peer. Slagging the man isn't necessary, he is not asking you to agree with him, it's you who are trying to erode his comments by denigrating him. I look forward to his knowledge rather than the prejudiced and cheap attacks from cowards and ignoramuses.

  • No more taxi driver comments- good to see not everybody agrees with Gerry. Everyone is entitled to a say, the problem is Gerry thinks his views are always right. He likes to stamp all over others comments and then goes off on a big spool usually getting way off the subject trying to intellectualise everything. How about keeping it simple and to the point.

  • Christian Porter..his decision to enter federal politics in time for the next election, does have merit, if in fact he wants to see the end of Julia Gillard and her mates. But one could remind him that the Labor Government is gone anyway, without his help. Cristian would have made a good Premier of this State, and we all could then have seen the back of the very arrogant, and out of touch, Colin Barnard.

  • Here we go again. Gerry 'trust me I am a full-time activist' Georgatos wants us all to open the borders and let anyone in without any checks whatsoever. Stick to taxi driving Gerry and stop trying to intellectualise a simple issue that the Libs had under control. You fail hard yet again.
