What happened to never speak ill of the dead?


I watched ABC’s #QandA last night and thought it plunged new lows in a lack of common sense. If Zaky Mallah’s ‘accidental’ appearance wasn’t bad enough they used a taxpayer funded platform to publicly hurl insults at politically incorrect cartoonist Bill Leak who died earlier in the week. Apart from the crowd’s poor behaviour and grammar, some of the panelists even took the opportunity to lock in their moral outrage credentials. It was tacky, unnecessary and utterly disrespectful to Leak’s family. Not even the death of a highly awarded artist escapes the ABCs social justice warrior elite.

Isn’t everyone taught to “not speak ill of the dead”?
