The Australian “Safe Schools” Program and La Trobe University

The Australian “Safe Schools” Program and La Trobe University

Professor Gary Dowsett —- “..The current paedophilia debate then is crucial to the political processes of the gay movement: paedophiles need our support, and we need to construct the child/adult sex issue on our terms...” Safe Schools Coalition has manipulated language to give ‘safe’ a whole new meaning. It’s a clever marketing strategy devised by activist Kevin Jennings in Massachusetts in the 1990s: tapping into values that everyone has in common, a desire for ‘safety’ is universal, and particularly when it comes to children.”

The Prescience of Hilaire Belloc — Quadrant

“...Our political leaders have a responsibility to shake us out of suicidal torpor in the face of dire threats. Be Churchill-like in other words. Unfortunately, our politicians almost to a man and woman are appeasers of the worst kind. The worst kind are not those who simply deny the threat. They are those who kow-tow to it and invite it into the living room where our grandchildren are playing. Maybe we have the political leaders we deserve. Sometimes I think that when I listen to some Pollyannas around me. Others, thankfully, are perceptive enough to realise that bad things happen if we let them. But I fear such people are outnumbered. So here we are, eighty years after Belloc wrote. Islam is not only outside the gate but has a rapidly growing foothold within. As prescient as he was even he could not have foreseen that happening. Sheer self-destructive madness isn’t predictable...”

Michelle Guthrie, The ABC and bias. What else?

No matter how tangential or obtuse, every program in some way manages to weave in strands of the many and varied elements of those issues of concern to the inner city green left. Everything from climate change to same sex marriage to refugees to Trump demonization and vilification, homophobia, Islamophobia etc. The list writes itself.

Random Note — Memo PM Jacinda Ardern. Thanks but no thanks

The one thing as predictable as clockwork is the propensity of the misty eyed and misguided, hanky sucking, bed wetting, lip quivering left, to not think things through or concern themselves with the consequences of their actions. That is why their judgement on policy issues, once unleashed and with ongoing, long term ramifications can never be trusted. They’ve learnt absolutely nothing from the Rudd Gillard Rudd experiment of messing around with boats.

Worth reading before Remembrance Day 2017 is but memory – Remembrance Day and Lessons Forgotten: American Thinker

The generation that came of age in the 1940s has been replaced by their children, and grandchildren, now infected with the incurable morbid diseases of politically correct progressive collectivism, socialism’s path of least resistance, and secular laziness. National security, and fidelity to a nation’s sovereignty is now labeled xenophobia, and worse. 400,000 Britons perished in WWII to rid the world of Nazism, Churchill’s nemesis. Today radical Islamic barbarians -- free ranging Muslim anarchists -- are given a hero’s welcome, with open border immigration policies that invite unmitigated and abject dread, the most recent evil visiting the innocent concert goers in Manchester, the bombing victims primarily children. The Times of London now reports that some 23,000 Muslim jihadists are in Britain, all recent émigrés -- numbers roughly equivalent to two German WWII divisions. Imagine not a shot fired, nor a single Spitfire or Hurricane fighter sent aloft. Two WWII German divisions given BritRail passes from Dover to London to Durham.

Saturday, 11/11 — Lest we forget

11/11 Lest we forget — The stark contrast in this war art between then and now, the mud, blood, chaos, cacophony, confusion and sacrifice of the dark days of war, juxtaposed against the blue sky, sunny uplands, opportunity and heritage we all enjoy decades later, says it all. Sometimes though, I wonder, given the low quality of what passes for leadership from all sides in public life these days, whether the sacrifice was worth it.

Sydney University charging students a security fee for conservative events

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” — George Orwell -- University students are being told they will have to pay to hire security guards if they want to run events spruiking conservative ideals — including pro-coal ideas. Student organiser Renee Simone Gorman said the Conservative Club was told by Sydney University it had to agree to pay “unlimited security fees” if it wanted to host an event called The Case for Coal. The club was also hit with a $760 fee to pay for up to 10 security guards for an earlier talk on the “Dangers of Socialism” in August. This was despite no protesters actually turning up. “Students who don’t follow the left wing line of thought are paying for the left to throw tantrums,” she said...”
