From a reader:
Irwin never talked much about politics. It wasn’t his thing – obviously. But, when he did, he proudly touted his conservative philosophies and was a staunch support of PM John Howard’s. He was a guest on Laura Ingraham’s radio show several years back and I was pretty shocked to learn of his politics.
He was, of course, a conservationist and a lover of animals. But he never struck me as a PETA type – which, silly me, I assumed he would’ve been. Hopefully, Laura will chime in with her own reminiscing of Irwin’s appearance on her show.
