ALP member takes on the ABC Perth when broadcasters see nothing wrong about a Perth primary student dressing up as Hitler.

Michael Danby

ABC Perth’s morning radio host Geoff Hutchison was engaged in a discussion about this week;s story of a Perth primary schoolboy dressing up as Hitler and being awarded a prize for his efforts…and with the class chanting ‘Hitler, Hitler’ durind the procedings.

Hutchison’s antics caught the attention of Bill Johnson, State Labour member for Cannington and a former State Secretary of the WA Labour Party.

Listen to what Johnson had to say on the sound file below.

Jewish Federal Labour MP, Michael Danby, said: “Bill Johnston is one of the more intelligent members of the ALP in Western Australia. He is to be commended for ringing up the ABC in Perth and holding them to account.  This is a broadcast that shall live in infamy. It is a sad indictment of the post-modernist thinking of individuals who live in a parochial, provincial setting.” Danby agreed with a recent statement made by Education Minister Simon Crean in which he stated that Holocaust studies would be mandatory in year 10 in Australian schools.”

Listen to the broadcast for yourself…….
