HILARIOUS: Crazy Leftist Aussie Prime Minister Gets Unhinged Over Veggie Meal, Abuses Stewardess

By Debbie Schlussel
Boy do I miss Australian Prime Minister John Howard. He was conservative. He wasn’t politically correct on Islam (and told Bono where to go on Gitmo). He was mostly a good guy, who had the guts to warn America not to elect Barack Obama. Oh, and he didn’t abuse the help.
Now, he’s been replaced by this crazy, uber-lefty nutjob Kevin Rudd, who reduced a flight attendant to tears over his vegetarian “special meal.” As someone who’s flown many flights where my (kosher) “special meal” was not on the plane as ordered, it’s not that big of a deal. Once you land, there’s plenty of food on planet earth. You get over it. This isn’t a day-long famine.

Temper, Temper: Abusive Lib Aussie PM Kevin Rudd

But that’s not the way this unhinged far-leftist sees it. Is this really the behavior of a Prime Minster of a Western, English-speaking nation? Neither I, nor my friend, Brett Winterble of Covert Radio Show (thanks for the tip) think so:

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has downplayed reports that he reduced a young female RAAF cabin attendant to tears with a tirade of abuse because he did not get a meal he wanted during a VIP flight.
An official report was filed by the flight crew about the behaviour of VIP No. 1 – Mr Rudd – after the flight from Port Moresby to Canberra in late January, The Daily Telegraph reports.
Mr Rudd, who had attended the Pacific Islands Forum, was told by the 23-year-old flight attendant that his request for a “special” meal – he is on a meat-free diet – could not be met.
Sources said the PM reacted “strongly” and a heated exchange followed. The attendant burst into tears and reported the matter to the senior cabin attendant.
She later composed herself and continued with the in-flight service.
“The crew were distressed but later in flight apologies were made by all,” the report says.
But when he was asked about the incident at the conclusion of the G20 summit in the British capital today, Mr Rudd said he did not “observe” any tears over the matter. . . .
Mr Rudd said that as he recalled, he told a member of the crew not to worry about the language he had used. . . .
The PM’s chief spin doctor, Lachlan Harris, initially tried to cover up the incident with a flat denial that it had even occurred.
But the report by the Commander of the VIP fleet, Group Capt Peter Wood, leaves no doubt about Mr Rudd’s behaviour.
It says cabin crew on board the taxpayer-funded Boeing 737 VIP aircraft were not even aware of Mr Rudd’s special meal request.
Mr Rudd has been losing weight and is on a non-red meat and fruit only dessert diet.
It is not the first unsavoury incident involving Mr Rudd and RAAF cabin crew.
During a flight between Sydney and Canberra last June he became “extremely irritated” when the only food on offer was gourmet sandwiches, rather than a hot meal, a source said.
The Boeing 737 VIP jet costs more than $28,000 an hour to run and the first-class service includes the best available food, wine, spirits and beer.
The Port Moresby-Canberra flight would have cost taxpayers about $150,000.

Dude, take a chill pill. And a giant dose of humility. I love how liberals like Rudd–who clearly think they’re more important than the little people–constantly claim to be the champions of the little people.
But the faux populism of liberals is usually betrayed by their actions.

Maybe he should take a female kangaroo with him on every flight where he can get in her pouch and start nursing.

Maybe, like me, he’s given up meat for Lent. He could just go to confession afterward or eat the non-meat portion of the meal. A big duh for an adult.

So this idiot wasn’t bright enough to just eat the veggie portion of the existing meal (or meals)? In the immortal words of that famous philosopher, Mr. B. Bunny, “What a maroon!”

To the people of Australia…WHAT THE DEVIL WERE YOU THINKING ELECTING A DUMBASS FASCIST LIKE RUDD?! WHY? YOU GUYS GOT CAUGHT UP IN GLOBALIZED CONSERVATIVE DERANGEMENT SYNDROME!
RUDD IS THE GORDON BROWN OF DOWN UNDER! JOHN HOWARD YOU ARE WANTED BADLY!
HE’S NO WORSE THAN BUSH 41 WHO REFUSED TO EAT BROCCOLI! THAT’S WHAT DREAMING ABOUT THE NWO WILL GET YOU!

To NEPatriot:
I didn’t vote for this clown because he is one of these bleeding-heart socialists that claim to be FOR the workers but think they are entitled to the royal treatment themselves.
I miss John Howard as well. He may have been short and bald but he had guts and he knew the meaning of integrity.
We are now on the very same slippery slope that the USA is being sent down at breakneck speed. Any deficit is being spent on vote-buying and loans are being taken out to balance a budget that is overspent thanks to giving money out hand-over-fist to single mothers with kids that all have the first name (different surnames); illegal immigrants; dole bludgers; and neighbouring nations that are broke thanks to their own corruption and financial mismanagement. The people who pay the taxes are treated like mugs that can cop it sweet.
We now have infrastructure that is so far behind a well-developed nation that it is not even remotely funny – A state down south (Victoria) that is bending over backwards to accommodate the DEMANDS of Muslims while the government continues to rob the people through speed cameras set to 1/10th the allowance that are built into car speedometers – no teachers – no doctors – no nurses – substandard hospitals that fudge figures to gain extra funding – no police – and we’ve all been disarmed so that only the criminals possess weapons and the people are defenceless because the police are otherwise occupied being traffic control for football games or plopped on open stretches of road to collect money from speed fines!
I could go on for a good time about this but it pretty-much falls on deaf ears because the moonbats have their weak-wristed fool in parliament as Prime Minister with a one-eye Union bigot as his 2IC.

I really miss John Howard. He truly was a great man.
