Mike Seccombe wrote a detailed account in The Saturday Paper (28 Oct 2016) of GetUp!’s stunningly successful tactics in the 2016 federal election which saw some key Liberal MPs lose their seats. Seccombe and The Saturday Paper are entrenched on the left. They would rather choke than say anything complimentary about those on the ‘hard right’. Seccombe’s piece is uncritical and its tone is of admiration. Nothing about the unconscionable merciless lies and manipulations that mark GetUp!’s campaigns against conservatives. Nevertheless, as far as it goes, his report provides a stark warning for conservatives in the coming federal election, said to be in May. Unless conservatives formulate strategies to check GetUp!, there’ll be a wipe-out. Australia will be given up to the far-left and the Orwellian world they tirelessly impose on the people under the guise of ‘fairness and democracy’. The echoes of the 1930s are on the left, not on the right. Below are the relevant passages from Seccombe’s report.
The available evidence shows…that the conservative parties lost the ground war [in the 2016 federal election]. Their opponents outgunned them when it came to directly interacting with voters in vulnerable seats. They actually talked to the people.
The GetUp! campaign was something unprecedented. It was by far the biggest, best-organised campaign run by an organisation not directly affiliated with a party.
Transgender politics have taken Americans by surprise, and caught some lawmakers off guard.
Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women’s access to single-sex bathrooms in North Carolina.
But transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us—children—and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community.
Yumi Stynes whom I had never seen or heard of before her reported clash with veteran television personality Kerry-Anne Kennerley on Studio 10 last Monday accused Kennerley of racism because Kennerley said: ‘OK, the 5000 people who went through the streets making their points known, saying how inappropriate [Australia] day is. Has any single one of those people been out to the outback, where children, babies, five-year-olds are being raped? Their mothers are being raped, their sisters are being raped. They get no education. What have you done?’
Kennerley only repeated what Jacinta Price and Warren Mundine have often said of the terrible circumstances in some Aboriginal communities and the lack of action, precisely by those who blow their mouth off hardest about Aboriginal disadvantage. I refer to my previous comment about Jacinta Price.
Billionaire George Soros opens his wallet to transform America
Three years ago (2013), a Supreme Court ruling paved the way for gay marriage.
After it, the mainstream media had one question: What was next for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement? They had, after all, won the big fight. In addition, many corporations had adopted policies barring discrimination based on sexual orientation, and two of America’s most watched shows at the time “Modern Family” and “Glee” featured openly gay characters.
“I really do believe [the Supreme Court ruling] is the domino that is going to tip over the rest of the dominoes,” Wilson Cruz, an LGBT activist, told CNN at the time. “Do not get in the way of this train, because it will run you over.”
To ensure things ran full-steam ahead, billionaire George Soros, through his Foundation to Promote Open Society, dedicated at least $2.7 million to the cause that year, according to his tax returns.
Some Republicans at the time mistakenly thought the LGBT movement had reached its pinnacle, that the culture wars had ended. They thought the party could now focus on fiscal concerns, which weren’t nearly as divisive.
But that was foolish — the LGBT movement was just getting fired up, and Soros-affiliated groups were already plotting their next prize. Read on…
David Marr’s Quarterly Essays on Tony Abbott and Cardinal George Pell have been among the most politically damaging of any writing that has come from the left. They have been damaging not because Marr mounts irresistible argument backed by unassailable evidence. No, they were damaging because of Marr’s considerable talent as a writer – a postmodernist writer with the creative power of a skilled novelist. Marr is a writer of ‘faction’ – fiction that is presented as fact. I make my case for Marr’s status as a postmodernist writer of ‘faction’ in chapter 13 of my just released ebook TONY ABBOTT AND THE TIMES OF REVOLUTION (paperback due February 2019).
Nobody has been more scathing of David Marr’s ‘political analysis’ than Gerard Henderson of the Sydney Institute. Below is his devastating critique in Media Watchdog No. 343 of Marr’s essay on Cardinal Pell.
It’s no surprise that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has broken barriers in the far-left war on white Australians.
The ABC has released a comedy segment showing a group of Aborigines parodying a breakfast talk show by saying that “white people are c…s”.
The explicit clip was produced by the team behind the ABC’s Black Comedy program, and hosted on an ABC indigenous Facebook page, where it attracted mostly positive comments.
In the parody, indigenous comedian and writer Nakkiah Lui plays the host of an inane breakfast show called “Wake Up to Yourself”, joined by a panel of three indigenous experts and commentators.
“Earlier this week, beloved Aboriginal man Uncle Stevie in a press conference referred to white people as white c…s,” she says in the clip, in which the swear word is bleeped out. “This has sparked outrage in the white community, with many calling for the removal of his uncle status and a public apology.”
The first panellist replies: “I know a lot of white people. Warm, kind white people. And I say this with a lot of love, but white people are c…s.”
“I wouldn’t use words as strong as that, but I tend to agree. White people are c…s,” the second panellist says.
“Well, I’ve never actually met a white person, but I do agree. White people? They’re c…s,” responds the third. Read on…
Holland is famous for its tolerance. But that tolerance these days covers everything the political correct dogma of the dominant political class approves. In real terms, everything that fits the Marxist agenda. Bert Brussen, CEO of the Postonline website, breaks from the mindless pc dialogue in his country to offer a courageous (a la Sir Humphrey Appleby), brutally candid (in typical Dutch style) an entertaining comment on speech to the extent it’s free in the Low Countries.
