“The old man recently died a few weeks ago of shame.” -- Alan Jones

 

 

John Gillard, a psychiatric nurse, passed away earlier this month after a long illness. 

But last weekend, broadcaster Alan Jones told a function that Julia Gillard’s father “died of shame” because his daughter “told lies every time she stood for parliament.”

He also signed a jacket made out of a chaff bag -- a reference to his comment last year that Julia Gillard should be put in a chaff bag and thrown out to sea. 

Today, Jones explained, defended and finally offered a qualified apology for what he said -- but not once did he say “I’m sorry”. 

These comments are cruel, reprehensible and utterly shameful. There is absolutely no justification for attacking someone’s loved ones and disrespecting their grief to score political points. 

Companies should not be supporting these ugly, hateful attacks -- advertisers should withdraw their support from Alan Jones' program immediately.

Please sign and share my petition. More info here: Sack Alan Jones Facebook and 2GB.

Here's some of the 60+ companies that have so far withdrawn support for Jones:

      Jones is the peddler of hate, ignorance and stupidity. He dumbs down his listeners (which is amazing given they are already coming off such a low base) and tells people it is alright to be a racist, biggotted, self centred denier of truths. He shot be shot but given the rule of law, sacking him will do.

      This is gutter politics, an utter nonsense said only to offend and cause pain. Not acceptable from any one, at any time.
