Snoop Dogg banned from Australia
Rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Australia after failing a character test, according to officials.
"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.
This is the type of useless posturing that politicians use in order to dupe people into believing that they are hard-line or tough on immigration. If they don't want him, his 'image' or his 'message' in the country then why are they only banning him from entering. Theres only so much that the actual Snoop Dogg can get up to in one trip to Australia. But the tens of thousands of virtual Snoops that are beamed into homes every day, by way of TV and the internet have an incomparably greater effect on the youth. So why not ban his virtual presence as well. They ban the man himself, but accomodate his message and his sub-culture. Ban his songs, don't give him any TV slots, ban MTV. Oh and draw up a list of other thugs and undesirables that should be banned from entering. Now that would be radical.
