Soros – the end point was never homosexual marriage

The money behind the transgender movement

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: The left’s purveyor of calumny par excellence

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.

Indigenous ABC comedy clip parodies white people

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…

Sticking up for free speech – a rich catalogue of the PC enemies

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.

At last: resistance to the political correct whining…
