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.
The tennis world was eager to see how young Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas would fare against aging Spanish champion Rafael Nadal. There seemed to be a wish that Tsitsipas would prevail over the Spanish bull. Wishful thinking, indeed. Nadal gored the young Greek. But it was not the anticipated clash that drew my attention in the first place.
Once again, television news reports showed crowds of Greek supporters draped in Greek colours loudly proclaiming in Australian accents their support for Tsitsipas . If you speak with an Australian accent, you have grown up in Australia. The Greek case of Australians identifying with another nation and culture is not the only one.
One of the strange things about politics today is the attempt by Left-wing activists to demonise ‘nationalism’.
For normal people, loving one’s country is a natural feeling. It gives them a sense of belonging, the comfort of having a clear national identity.
Most Australians are proud of our country’s achievements. For many decades, this was the unifying purpose of Australia Day: celebrating the greatness of our nation and the Western civilisation that arrived here on 26 January 1788.
We know Australia is a wonderful place because so many people from overseas want to come here (often by any means possible).
But in recent years, the Green-Left has tried to turn Australia Day into a day of division. They want to ‘change the date’ or even abandon the celebrations altogether.
The Australia-haters have come from within. They want to make us feel guilty about our love of country and ashamed of our national day. Read on…
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…
Dr Jordan Peterson is the Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto. He hit international headlines because of his refusal to use ideologically made-up pronouns that anti-discrimination legislation is forcing on people throughout the Western world. In the following piece he accurately describes the link between Marxism and Postmodernism/Identity Politics.
Communism was not popularized in the West under the direct banner of communism. Instead, it came largely under the banner of postmodernism, and aimed to transform the values and beliefs of our societies through its Marxist idea that knowledge and truth are social constructs.
Under it, a new wave of skepticism and distrust was applied to philosophy, culture, history, and all beliefs and institutions at the foundations of Western society.
The postmodern philosophy “came into vogue” in the 1970s, according to Jordan Peterson, Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, “after classic Marxism, especially of the economic type, had been so thoroughly discredited that no one but an absolute reprobate could support it publicly.”
Peterson said it’s not possible to understand our current society without considering the role postmodernism plays within it, “because postmodernism, in many ways—especially as it’s played out politically—is the new skin that the old Marxism now inhabits.” Read on…
No one should miss Jennifer Oriel’s commentaries in the Australian. Here’s her latest 5 Nov 2018. It’s too important to remain behind a paywall.
FIRE-BREATHING SISTERS JUST TRUMP THEIR OWN GENDER Stupid, brainless and servile. It’s how the American sisterhood describes women who vote Republican. Ahead of the US mid-term elections, left-wing sexism has reached fever pitch. While claiming to support women’s right to vote, the Left has subjected women who vote right to dehumanisation, public shaming and misogyny. White women are bearing the brunt of the Left’s hate speech as desperate Democrats try to coerce conformity among female freethinkers.
Shortly after the 2016 US election, pundits revealed a shocking truth: millions of women had voted freely, and had freely chosen Donald Trump for president. Exit polls revealed white women were the culprits. Supposed progressives responded with vile speech about Republican women the content of which rivalled the sexist diatribes 19th-century men used to silence the suffragettes. Like the suffragettes, women who vote conservative are deemed too stupid to vote rationally.
Karen Straughn is a popular youtuber who talks about men and their place in modern (feminist) society. An attempt in 2012 to explain why men are retreating from (feminized) society and avoiding marriage has drawn 1.9 million views and 33,000 comments. Her views are not what your average finger-wagging feminist wants to hear, and what should frighten the life out of the average young woman who wants it all, including marrying a reliable man and having children.
Former Facebook executive: “you don’t realize it, but you are being programmed”
“I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works. The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works,” former Facebook vice-president of user growth Chamath Palihapitiya, told an audience at Stanford Graduate School of Business last November (see video below).
Palihapitiya expressed regret for his part in building tools that destroy “the social fabric of how society works” and warned his audience: “If you feed the beast, that beast will destroy you. It’s time to take a hard break from some of these tools.” Read on…
