BlogRandom Notes - Idle Thoughts
This suicide statistic of 3000 like so much else in this campaign, is totally bogus and 100% fake news. It is simply emotional blackmail. Where is the similar outpouring of concern and grief from Westpac and their staff for small business doing it tough. What about farmers in drought and who can’t get any kind of debt relief on their circumstances and go up to the back paddock and never come home.
Abraham Lincoln memorialised the sacrifices and virtues of the dead in the Gettysburg address to ensure the survival of America’s representative democracy: that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth..” To an outsider from down under it seems quite apparent that this noble sentiment has been hijacked and Lincoln’s sentiments are in need of a rewrite:
“..Government of the people, by the NRA, for the NRA..”
This came up on my Facebook feed as a memory earlier today. I posted it originally on October 4, (today) in 2015. “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms WHEN SERVING IN THE MILITIA shall not be infringed
The PC World We Live In — An Interview with Dr Jeremy Sammut from the Centre for Independent Studies
On the back of Jeremy Sammut’s excellent column, Identity Politics Brings Shame Culture in The Australian last week, was this excellent interview with George Moore and Paul B Kidd on Sunday on 2UE
In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, identity politics holds that everything is racism. White racism. Here’s a picture
The no-platforming, safe-space, trigger-warning culture is no longer confined to academia, or to America, but lies behind the judgmentalism of many social media campaigns. Every writer I know feels that he or she is one remark away from disgrace. The enforcement of dogma is happening everywhere. Members of a transgender campaign group have refused to condemn an activist for punching a feminist. Anybody questioning the idea that climate change is an imminent catastrophe, however gently, is quickly labelled a “denier” (ie, blasphemer). How bad is this spasm of intolerance going to get?
Ever wondered what Safe Schools is all about? Gender fluidity? Or being raised without gender? — This is child abuse
This is compelling viewing. Note at the beginning the first words are “Sweden is the most forward thinking country in the world when it comes to questioning gender” Forward?? This is child abuse and this is Sweden in 2017 and a look into the future. If you ever wondered about the point of Safe Schools, what it’s all about and where it’s headed, this will point the way. When the history books are written, the historians will wonder, just as we do with previous civilisations, how the West ever allowed this stuff, driven by a Marxist minority, to take root? TS Eliot wrote in The Hollow Men, “This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.” In this case the emphasis is on “whimp” Without doubt, combined with the current de-industrialisation, let it rip multiculturalism, extreme environmentalism, the culture wars and identity politics, the Left has discovered the most effective way to (literally) neuter the West.
Yep, no doubt about it. The stats are staggering but not in the way you might think. If you followed the usual suspects in the mainstream media like CNN, MSNBC or The Washington Post you could be forgiven for thinking that those that take the knee at the NFL know their stuff and have a case. And you’d be wrong. They’re just another example of the “useful idiots” being played, as those damn pesky facts, stats and inconvenient truths impose themselves.
I’ve often said that winning the lotto of life is to be born into or migrate to Australia but I have to say I’m not so sure of that any longer. “…Murray argues that “Europe has lost faith in its beliefs, traditions and legitimacy” when it needs to assert itself against a foreign culture imported by Islamic fundamentalism. In universities and schools students are taught that there is nothing beneficial or worthwhile about Western civilisation. Politically correct advocates condemn nations such as England, France and Germany for their colonial past, feminists attack society as misogynist and sexist and neo-Marxists attack capitalism as inequitable and unjust…”
The campaign for same-sex marriage is not about equality, it is about envy and destruction, the creation of androgynous families. The clever fraud of ‘marriage equality’ and the organisation of the mob may be local, but the lead, and the political strategy come from America. The author of Queer in America, Michelangelo Signorile wrote that the fight for same-sex marriage was to “debunk a myth and alter an archaic institution…the most subversive action lesbians and gay men can undertake…is to transform the notion of ‘family’ entirely.”
