This week’s much coveted Wankley goes to News.com.au for allowing racist Muslim bashing comments on their “news” website.

Who are these neanderthals who awake from dreams of a “White Australia” at 2:45am to post their vile views? Surely they couldn’t (gasp!) be foreigners?!

News.com.au “welcome your comments” which are moderated and possibly edited before publication. This comment wasn’t published by their oh so sensitive moderator: 

News.com.au’s moderator must have learned from News Limited’s master of such racist rabble rousing.
