The goals of the PC class

Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association claimed in an circularized email that those currently calling themselves ‘progressive’ were actually regressive. They were regressive because they wanted to:

  • Maintain the right to kill unborn babies up until the moment of birth.
  • Embrace any sexual perversion and have society affirm it.
  • Dismantle capitalism and replace it with socialism or communism.
  • Abolish the family.
  • Centralize and expand state power and control.
  • Censor the speech of anyone who dares disagree with them.
  • Expunge any vestige of Christianity in America.

That pretty well applies to Australia. Indeed, the conquest of language is a necessary leftist goal.

What Made American Academia Great (and How It Was Destroyed)

BY GARRETT WARD SHELDON| JUNE 21ST, 2019

The processes and ideology destroying American universities described below by Professor emeritus Garrett Ward Sheldon of the University of Virginia are almost an exact parallel with the decline – or rather degeneration – of Australian universities.

Since retiring from the university, several people have asked if I miss it. I tell them I miss what it was, but not what it has become. Higher education in America has gone from being the best in the world to one of the most pathetic. Why? It’s hard to describe what academia was to me and to millions in the past. It was not just a job, but a way of life, and of Western Civilization; and I’m so close to it, that it’s hard to describe—like trying to describe one’s own mother (hence alma mater!).

But let me try. University life at its best was both the most serious, difficult, challenging and maddening existence; and yet, it was also the most exciting, lively, rewarding, and fun experience.

It was deadly serious because we constantly examined the most intense human issues: historical and personal tragedies; ethical dilemmas, philosophical complexities; theological mysteries; and scientific wonders. It was hard because it stretched you intellectually and emotionally, made you question everything and be changed by that knowledge. And it was difficult, because of the enormous workload and demands; assignments, exams, papers, presentations and seminars. I don’t know of another situation, except possibly the military during a war, where one could be tested so much.

INFILTRATION: THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CHURCH FROM WITHIN
Taylor R Marshall
Crisis Publications
An imprint of Sophia Institute Press
Manchester, New Hampshire
Pub. 31 May 2019

Dr Taylor Marshall’s book Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from within aims to uncover the forces within the Catholic Church seeking its destruction. The destruction aimed for, though, is not obliteration. The Catholic Church is far too important as a moral and political power to obliterate. The destruction is in the form of a fundamental or ontological change, the change from one substance to its opposite, the change from the Church of Jesus Christ to the church of Lucifer, the Angel of Light and the Prince of Darkness. It is crucial to understand that the forces of Lucifer are people and ideas. Some agents are conscious and purposeful in their subversion. Others, naive or self-deceived or easily led, drive those ideas. If I were to name the outstanding feature of Dr Marshall’s book, I would say it’s the revelation of those people of influence, many of good will, who unwittingly or blindly clear the way for those intent on destroying the Church as it is and ever has been.

Some concrete problems with gender theory

A growing number of feminists are raising objections to the concrete outcomes of transgenderism.

Say two physically fit biological 17-year-old males decide they’re girls. Their decision, we are told, is not to be disputed. Having switched to the female gender, they would go with the girls in sporting contests. That’s the logical outcome of gender theory.

How would biological female athletes of the same age feel about being thrashed by the biologically male girls? Not great, I imagine.

Just such a case was reported by the Washington Times under the heading, Transgender sprinters finish 1st, 2nd at Connecticut girls indoor track championships.

You have to feel sorry for the biologically female girls who spent weeks training for the sport meet only to suffer disadvantages feminists were all about removing.

A reminder of getup!’s manipulative power

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.

‘How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse’

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.

As explained in my 2016 peer reviewed article, “Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate,” professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job.  Read on

Yumi Stynes is a fool

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.

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…
