The Herald Sun's Andrew Bolt, or The Professional Idiot as he's known around these parts, loves, absolutely loves, Gordon Ramsay.
Why? Because Gordon Ramsay personifies "conservative values".
It's not simply admiration, it's also infatuation :
"...I've fallen for the bloke. My kind of guy completely. More of him and civilisation is safe."
"I like particularly the standards Ramsay upholds...."
"He thinks reason beats irrational sentiment."
"Here's Ramsay coaching millions of Australians into Liberal values and making them seem contemporary."
"Ramsay...is an artist who uses them as tools to create something beautiful from nothing..."
"Make something of yourself, is his message. Test yourself. Find passion. Make a life and, in Ramsay's own passion, his values and his art, he has."
Good God, and then there's this :
Ramsay also shouts at a lot of women on TV, tries to humiliates them, hurls abuse and invective at women because he doesn't like the way they cook (how very 20th century of him), or more importantly, he doesn't like the way they look at him with eyes that say 'You are a fucking weak, weak man.'
"(Gordon Ramsay) creates a noble calling from a job, and a life from a collection of days."
So, this comes as no real surprise :
Foul-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay has shocked a public audience by vilifying high profile Australian journalist Tracy Grimshaw in an obscene, sexist rant.Ramsay even showed his 'art' to children walking by.
The putrid tirade, which included references to Grimshaw's looks, sexuality and depictions of her as a pig, shocked audiences who went to see the celebrity chef at the Good Food and Wine Show in Melbourne.
Ramsay told an audience of several thousand people that Grimshaw was "a lesbian"...
When the crowd reacted with gasps, he said: "What? I'm not saying she's a ..."
The phrase that Ramsay used was a highly derogatory term often used to describe lesbians.
Ramsay also showed a picture of a woman - who appeared to be naked - on her hands and knees with the features of a pig and multiple breasts.
"That's Tracy Grimshaw," he told the audience. "I had an interview with her yesterday - holy crap.
"She needs to see Simon Cowell's Botox doctor."
Mandy Saunders was at the food expo with her two children and elderly mother.If Channel Nine valued Tracey Grimshaw as a journalist, a quality interviewer, and respected her as the host of their flagship current affairs program, they'd tell Gordon Ramsay to go and fuck himself, forever.
"I couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing - it was disgusting," Ms Saunders said.
"The show is meant for families. That was way out of order."
They won't of course.
The honour of Tracey Grimshaw, as a journalist, as a woman, means nothing to this kind of media.
Gordon Ramsay must be absolutely plowing through bags and bags of methamphetamine these days.
Presumably, that's what he'll end up blaming.
