Changes to “18c” may happen soon
Amending the Racial Discrimination Act was once backed a few “crazy right wingers” but can now count at least 20 senators on its side and that had much to do with a Queensland university case, Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi says, AAP reports.
Senator Bernardi, who plans to introduce a private bill to remove the words “insult” and “offend” from section 18C of the act, said this was a modest and sensible reform.
He said before the election it was “only a few of the crazy right wingers like myself” who backed this change.
He now has the support of at least 13 coalition senators and seven crossbenchers and the Queensland case had played a significant role.
Three Queensland University of Technology students are being sued for racism over a series of Facebook posts after they were asked to leave a QUT computer labreserved for indigenous students.
Senator Bernardi said not one person has been able to defend the use of 18C in this case.
“If it had gone to the tribunal and they’d just said ‘this is a joke surely, you’re being ridiculous’ and thrown it out, maybe we wouldn’t have quite the same strong level of interest we have now,” he told Sky News.
Senator Bernardi rejected the suggestion he was just seeking to make trouble for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
“It really is about fixing a wrong,” he said on ABC television. “It is entirely about the principle behind freedom of speech in this country.”
Make a joke and the full force of law comes down on your head. 18c of the Anti-Discrimination Act is so flawed that needs to be abolished.
Hillary Clinton Goes ‘Full Retard’. ‘Never Go Full Retard’.
Ah, Tropic Thunder. It may not be a classic movie but it does have that one classic quote.
“Never go full retard…”
After a disastrous week of US Presidential Election , the pressure is starting to show on Hillary Clinton. Revelations from the DNC Leaks have proven that her party rival, Bernie Sanders, was robbed of his chance to stand for president. Leaks from George Soro’s emails shows how much she has been supported by him. Another 15000 lost emails have been released exposing more sordid details that she would prefer to hide. An embarrassing set of rumours about her health forced Hillary to go on a talk television show in an attempt to show how healthy she is. Yet by far the greatest scandal came after the ugly truth about the Clinton Foundation showed how the Clinton’s taking huge sums of money to have privileged access to her in her role as Secretary of State. If even half of these scandals prove to be true then Hillary Clinton will start losing the loyalty of voters.
In what the Clinton campaign may have thought would have been her comeback moment has descended into a disaster. In speak that was shrill will rhetoric Hillary unleashed her inner beast to rip into her list of enemies. Alex Jones, Breitbart and Republican leader Donald Trump were all smeared with a litany of her wild conspiracy theories.
Here are some example of her accusations:
Trump’s lack of knowledge or experience or solutions would be bad enough.
But what he’s doing here is more sinister.
Trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters.
It’s a disturbing preview of what kind of President he’d be.
A man with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far reaches of the internet, should never run our government or command our military.
When Trump was getting his start in business, he was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to rent apartments to black and Latino tenant.
His campaign famously posted an anti-Semitic image – a Star of David imposed over a sea of dollar bills – that first appeared on a white supremacist website.
When asked in a nationally televised interview whether he would disavow the support of David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, Trump wouldn’t do it.
It’s what happens when you listen to the radio host Alex Jones, who claims that 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombings were inside jobs. He said the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre were child actors and no one was actually killed there.
…he hired Stephen Bannon, the head of a right-wing website called Breitbart.com, as campaign CEO.
To give you a flavor of his work, here are a few headlines they’ve published:
“Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.”
“Would You Rather Your Child Had Feminism or Cancer?”
“Gabby Giffords: The Gun Control Movement’s Human Shield”
“Hoist It High And Proud: The Confederate Flag Proclaims A Glorious Heritage.”
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, Breitbart embraces “ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Race-baiting ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideas — all key tenets making up an emerging racist ideology known as the ‘Alt-Right.’”
Alt-Right is short for “Alternative Right.”
The Wall Street Journal describes it as a loosely organized movement, mostly online, that “rejects mainstream conservatism, promotes nationalism and views immigration and multiculturalism as threats to white identity.”
The de facto merger between Breitbart and the Trump Campaign represents a landmark achievement for the “Alt-Right.” A fringe element has effectively taken over the Republican Party.
Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum on leaving the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi.
The godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Parents and teachers are already worried about what they’re calling the “Trump Effect.”
Bullying and harassment are on the rise in our schools, especially targeting students of color, Muslims, and immigrants.
In terms of impact, Hillary’s speech will only convince her most loyal followers to hang on in her darkest days. The average voter is neither mindless or stupid and will be able to see right through the complete litany of lies. Her wild conspiracy that Vadimir Putin is plotting with the Alt-Right and Donald Trump to destroy her may just be the tipping point where people question her sanity.
Alex Jones has already called Clinton out on her lies and twisted misquotes. Breitbart News has also rejected the accusation made by Clinton calling her ‘Tinfoil Hillary‘.
As for Donald Trump’s reply to the speech? “Shame on You.” he declared after calling it out as a desperate race-baiting lie.
Hillary’s ‘Tinfoil Hat’ moment may be more damaging than she expected. It shows desperation to her enemies in the media and if the media smell desperation they will push harder.
The Safe Schools Scandal: The LGBT crowd turn on Roz Ward
Marxist Fist Pump from Roz Ward
If only there was a skerrick of reason to how an obviously warped individual like Roz Ward was able to rise to power. If only Marxists could see traditional families as anything more than something to manipulated and eventually abolished. If only the people in charge of the education system were not so fixated upon their ideologies.
There plenty of regrets in the saga of the Safe Schools scandal. None the least is that its agenda is there for everyone to see. Roz Ward is just one player in a massive conspiracy to undermine the wishes and moral values that most parents hold. The whole Safe Schools program was a Trojan horse falsely labelled as an anti-bullying program. Its main purpose was to pump hard core LGBT propaganda into the helpless minds of innocent children. If anyone dare question it motives or disagree with its dogma then they would be subjected to a barrage of insults, slurs and condemnations. In short all critics were to be bullied into submission in the name of anti-bullying. How is that for irony? Worse than irony it is coldblooded deception.
Your children are being targeted in the indoctrination war against traditional family values. The people behind the Safe Schools program do not care what you think let alone how much you love your children. They want the minds of children cured of the worst enemy that they can think of: Petty Bourgeois Morality. Only after all the foundations of the traditional family unit are destroyed and all children are mindless Marxist zombies, will they be satisfied.
It is as if the whole plan to take down capitalism and the western dominance relies upon removing the pillars that hold it up: The family, marriage, gender, government, religion and history all have to be wiped away in the wake of ideological purity. If only it was that simple.
Just a few years ago the quest of Same Sex Marriage was on no one’s agenda. Yet in the span of a decade it has risen to become one of the most talked about issues in the media. What is driving this? Did the Gay communities suddenly all decide that they wanted to be part of an institution that had for decades scorned and rejected? Did a community whose leaders condemned marriage as slavery and legal prostitution sudden have an epiphany about stable and lifelong commitments? Or was there another set of agendas at work?
For an ideologue like Roz Ward the jig seems to up. Safe Schools was set up to push a Marxist agenda and now everyone knows it. Once this became public knowledge it was merely a matter of time before it was exposed at the dangerous sham that it was. So damaging is the Safe School scandal that other LGBT activists are starting distance themselves from it.
Speaking at a Socialist Alternative conference at Sydney University last weekend, Ms Ward condemned critics of the Safe School program.
“These people have clearly lost the argument on marriage equality, although not the legal reform yet,” the La Trobe University academic told the conference.
“The conservatives were really not going give up on their homophobia, their transphobia, so the Safe Schools Coalition became a focus for that.
“Most of their evidence is based on shit they make up. They literally just lie, fabricate or use really outdated research.”
A former Victorian government adviser on LGBTI health-related matters, Rob Mitchell, described Ms Ward’s comments as self-serving. Also claiming that:
“What Roz Ward is doing now is actually counter-productive for the broader push for equality.”
Tim Wilson, a former member of the Safe Schools’ steering committee, said Ms Ward was abusing her position to advance her own political agenda at the expense of the program.
“Ms Ward’s ongoing indifference to legitimate concerns about Safe Schools is now harming the debate on marriage for same-sex couples,” he said.
“In the lead-up to a plebiscite we need a respectful debate on both sides.”
The criticism from the LGBT leaders indicates that the Safe Schools program is hurting their case for changing the marriage act to permit Same Sex Marriages. What they are not doing is condemning the program that Roz Ward was so instrumental in creating. Nor is anyone questioning whether there is any justification in running a multimillion dollar program to address the concern of a micro-minority. They appear to be more concerned with the damage Roz Ward may do to the Same Sex Marriage campaign.
Unfortunately the forgotten people of the controversy are the parents and children who will take the brunt of the Safe Schools social experiment. Reading the comments from concerned parents is building a disturbing picture of intimidation and fear. Here is example of some of the comments:
Like others writing here, I too hear friends’ almost crying when their children are coming home from school enunciating “sexual identity” issues that do not, in reality, exist.
Roz Ward is a very sad case. In her eyes our children must be manipulated to justify her behaviour. Over my dead body.
My daughter is in grade 8 at a state school. I’m gob smacked that substantial school time is being spent instructing children on various gender identities. My daughter recently explained to me “pansexuality” and “furries”. She says that many of her friends are questioning their gender and what they are sexually attracted to and that it is “trendy”. I feel outraged but am yet to approach the school for fear of being considered a trouble maker or homophobic.
My daughter saw her daughter’s primary school (independent state school in WA) principal and said that if Safe Schools ever became policy then she would remove her daughter immediately from the school. The principal told her that this program would never be taught in the school while he was running it.
I don’t want this vile thing within a cooee of my children…..and she will never get a yes vote from me!
Sexualisation of Children by adults is called grooming.
Can we please stop listening to these fetishist cultural marxists they are just crazies on the fringes of the looney bin.
I didn’t know such a word as ‘transphobia’ existed. Now with Safe Schools my children will.
Roz Ward is just one out of many who are pushing the Safe School program into the schools. Just as guilty is Victorian State Premier, Dan Andrews, who has promised to fund the program even if it loses federal funding.
Where the Hell are Black Lives Matter?
Not to be found when there is real rescuing to be done.
This man makes one of the most valid points in the whole ‘Black Lives Matter’ controversy. It is easy to be a radicalized vandal. But what actual good are they doing in this world? When people are crying out for help BLM are not to be found.
It speak volumes about what BLM really care about.
The Safe Schools Scandal:Sex Change Story Books aimed at 5 year old kids.
If ever there was a news story that I wish was not true the this would be it.
The story published in The Australian News Paper has revealed that a Flinders University research team has recommended that the Safe Schools program be rolled out to South Australian primary schools.
Children as young as 5 have already been given story books introducing concepts ranging from cross-dressing to gender reassignment surgery, as part of a university study being used to advocate for the expansion of the Safe Schools program into primary schools.
One of the books called ‘My New Daddy’ written by LGBTI rights activist, Lilly Mossiano, has a young boy who is told by his mother that “nature made a mistake” and “she should’ve been born a boy like him”.
An experimental class was trialled on 21 students with the approval of Flinders University came out with some strange results.
The report details some of the children’s reactions to the stories, which ranged from “he wants to wear a dress like girls so he said ‘I wanna be a girl’” to “I liked the story because the mum turned into a boy”.
Other students were confused about the subject matter.
When the Soviet Union brainwashes children it was rightly called a crime against humanity.
Yet when warped ideologues pushing the LGBT agenda brainwashes children it is called an Anti-Bullying Program.
I am taken aback at how such deviously deviants were allowed to have so much power.
GREG SHERIDAN on the current Persecution of Christians.
In an editorial titled ‘Western media shuts its eyes to persecution of Christians by IS‘ Greg Sheridan, Foreign Editor for The Australian newspaper, has slammed the silence of western media for its silence.
There is one minority group that is more persecuted than any other in the world, persecuted more frequently, more widely and with more intensity.
There is indeed in one substantial region an explicit campaign of genocide being carried out against this group.
Yet you will hardly ever hear about it in the Western media.
The minority group in question is Christians.
A terrible process of ethnic and religious cleansing of Christians from the Middle East is strongly in train.
Much of the article highlights the double standards and hypocrisy of western media outlets who are intentionally ignoring mass human rights abuses against Christians.
Therefore the Western media cannot bring itself to describe, much less make moral judgments about, the savage persecution of Christians.
The article is a good start for a subject does not rate media attention.
