Aussie Soldiers 'let off a bit of steam' dressed in KKK regaliaMikey 24 comments
I don't think there is anything our soldiers could do to upset the Prime Minister. A video has surfaced showing Australian Army personnel binge drinking, and one soldier is dressed in KKK regalia. The PM's official stance is that the soldiers were just letting of some steam. he also urged the public not to over-react. He said:
"I have some understanding of the disposition of people in these situations to let off a bit of steam. I just think people can over-react with these things. People get into a lather and sweat and so on ... let's be sensible about this."
Letting off steam is just fine. But how does dressing up as a member of the Klu Klux Klan constitute letting off steam? And another question: Why did a member of the Australian Army have a KKK uniform to begin with? Is it something he whips out at parties?
As an Australian, I find this both repulsive and embarrassing.
