Old Croc Greer puts Bite on Steve Irwin Croc Hunter

"Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, is an embarrassment to all Australians", according to Germaine Greer in The Guardian newspaper in Britain.

In successive attacks, Greer who is an ex-pat Aussie living in Britain, and quoted as saying she will never return to Aus. because of our prehistoric attitudes and culture, she has labelled those who are saddened by Steve's death as idiots.

She has labelled Steve as an animal terrorist for intruding and disrupting their lives, and says it was a natural reaction by the stingray to attack because it felt threatened.

I will concede that at times Steve's antics in front of the camera did make me cringe, and his use and even overuse of Aussie lingo, did grate on the nerves, however a lot of that was "showbiz" playing up to the cameras to provide "action and excitement". The media are well known for their jazzing up of situations to make "good television" and Steve knew he had to work that in order to get his message across.

He made whole generations of people aware of the plight of animals in their native habitats worldwide, particularly children who will be the adults of tomorrow, and responsible for this world.

What I cannot abide by is Germaine Greer, a bitter and twisted relic of the sixties free-love era, hoping in boots and all to kick a dead man and his legacy of environmental awareness.
She lacked the guts and also the credibility to attack him while he was alive, particularly as she has publicly turned her back on Australia, and sworn to never return to these shores.
Greer is a cultural dinosaur and belongs stuffed in a British museum to be only dragged out to scare wayward children.

If she had attacked him while he was alive, no doubt Steve Irwin, would have let her bitter comments wash off his back, and then made a joke about her being a dangerous old crocodile. Unfortunately Steve can make that joke or defend himself, so I have a message for Greer.

Greer; Shut the Fuck Up and get back in your coffin, you bitter witch.


PS Is it just me or is Greer looking more like a salt water crocodile everyday.

This woman get's paid to be controversial, it's just more publicity for her.

I saw the interview on 'A Current Affair' between her and Karl Stefanovic and was shocked by her views. She even insulted Australians! Lucky she ain't living here anymore LOL

I couldn't agree with you more with your comment "Greer; Shut the Fuck Up and get back in your coffin, you bitter witch."

That just about sums it up.

What a low thing to do, the poor bloke hasn't even been gone a week, his family haven't even arranged the funeral, but she is sitting there happy to bag the shit out of someone that cannot defend themselves. Thats really fucking low!!

I hope that Greer is made to issue a formal appology to the Irwin family, things like what she said, just shouldn't be said, especially in death!

How about we bombard the Editor of The Guardian and demand she appologise or be sacked?

She has a very Menzies era look to Britain attitude, which is why she headed to Swinging 60's London in the first place in search of "culture" not present in Australia. I think she is stuck in her female enuch [the name of her book] time warp.

True PK, very true. Its an insult to crocodile's [crocodiles and alligators et all] everywhere, for me to compare them with Greer.
I bet if she ended up in a river or lake somewhere surrounded by crocodiles, the crocs would scatter in fear.

I wonder if she possesses any mirrors in her house? Ill bet they are made of stainless steel like in the public toilets, to prevent breakage when she looks in the mirror.
