For Disability Day, TV show graciously gives disabled person spot they’d normally give racist

News rooms around the country have today celebrated International People with Disabilities Day by giving someone in a wheelchair the spot they’d normally reserve for a white supremacist, stating it’s a good opportunity to give a tiny 18% fraction of the community with disability a voice, instead of the much more representative 0.1% who are white supremacists. News rooms around the country were excited to take a once a year break from hearing the ‘important’ ramblings of somebody spewing hate to bring out people with disabilities to ‘talk about issues surrounding disabilities’ if they have time in between patting themselves on the back.

Unsubtitled clips of the program uploaded online this afternoon sought to show how much the show cares about the disabled community, even going so far as to ask their guests very respectful questions about their sex and dating lives to really hammer home the respect the hosts have for the guest.

“But first should we really take vaccines?” asked the program. “We will ask the parents who are concerned that vaccines may cause a disability, which as we all know is much worse than death.”

“We should all spend more time thinking how our actions affect people with disabilities,” said the host who only last week was vilifying anyone on centrelink as doll bludgers. “We hear disabled people think they are not listened to enough about issues that relate to them, so here to discuss this problem is a panel of entirely able bodied people and one man dressed in a cow suit for balance.”

Accidentally crossing to an actual disabled person on the next panel, after not realising the resident racist had macular degeneration, the hosts made sure to say the word “inspirational” at least 50 times to describe his decision to continuing to live while disabled.

“Oh look sorry I guess we ran out of time,” after discussing the topic for 30 seconds. “Big thank you for coming my props. Whoops sorry bit of a slip up there, I meant big props for coming thank you. Thankyou to us for allowing you on to talk about how representation should be more than once a year. See you next year.”
