And another anti-Abbott feral in Warringah

These people need help.

Will Bill Shorten declare a climate emergency?

Why is Greenpeace demanding PM Scott Morrison declare a ‘climate emergency’? Why not badger Bill Shorten? Labor has an uncosted climate change policy but gone one step short of declaring a full blown “climate emergency” despite the cost of doing nothing being so huge. Probably because climate change isn’t as big an election issue as made out and declaring catastrophe might wreck his chances to move into The Lodge.

Ironically Greenpeace just wrote about the success of Extinction Rebellion with respect to climate emergency. In the process revealing how useless it is at public advocacy to praise a rival playing in the same donation pool. Will these two leftist groups eat each other in months to come when they realize they’re fighting over the same funds?

Are the Greens expecting the Libs to hold onto power? Even if Morrison declared an emergency, not one Greens voter would put Liberal as their second preference.

What we do know is the Greens love law breakers. It is a $3,000 + GST per person fine to climb onto unauthorized parts of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 15 of them. $45,000 for Premier Gladys Beijiklian. It doesn’t matter if they were experienced abseilers. They should be prosecuted.

Instead of condemning illegal activity the Greens, true to form, were applauding! NSW Greens politician, Cate Faehrmann, was quick to say,

BREAKING: Protesters have scaled the Sydney Harbour Bridge calling on Australia to declare a climate emergency! I applaud their actions 100%. Governments aren’t listening so more and more people are taking desperate action to be heard.”

Imagine if pro-Adani groups handed out leaflets on the benefits to jobs and the economy. The Greens would censure the activity as unconstitutional and demand they be arrested and jailed for heresy.

Environmental justice through feminism

WEN.jpeg

Hold on, folks! It wasn’t so long ago that Dr. Aaron Brough of Utah State University conducted the study to see if there is a correlation between toxic masculinity and climate change. His assumptions ran the line that men see environmentalism as more feminine and get triggered if forced to make ecological choices if they feel threatened. So fear not. The Women’s Environmental Network (WEN), “working for environmental justice through feminist principles” will save us! WEN is staging the ‘Mothers Climate March‘ on Mother’s Day in London. With any luck, Mother Nature will rain on their parade.

WEN states, “Mothers Rise Up! We have just 11 years act to prevent climate breakdown. The time to act is NOW!…We will come together and rise as a maternal force to be reckoned with. With pushchairs and song, we will march from Hyde Park Corner to Parliament Square and demand that our government take immediate, drastic action for a just transition to a sustainable way of life…We will hold a powerful ceremony of speeches and song and together begin to forge a future worthy of our children. Bring decorated pushchairs (empty or occupied), your children’s paintings, banners, your incredible voice, creativity and energy.”

Didn’t Westminster just roll over and declare a “climate emergency“? Are empty wheelchairs supposed to represent something? Hopefully, we do not have young girls trying to superglue their breasts to the road as experienced in the last Extinction Rebellion rally.

CM thought the link between toxic masculinity was a stretch. Now WEN says “our feminism is environmental. We believe that the fight for gender equality is inextricably linked to environmental justice. These two goals can only be achieved together.” Forget the science, just enact a feminist agenda to save us.

Two ambassadors for the movement are current MPs in Westminster, one representing the Greens and the other Labour.

Late last year CM’s local weekly newspaper we were told that climate change is impacting Fifi and Fluffy. Veterinarian Dr Anne Fawcett noted in the article,

If we love animals, we also need to reduce anthropogenic climate change by using energy wisely, reducing waste and recycling, investing in renewable energy and opting for public transport where possible.”

One can be sure that Fifi the family poodle cares more about her masters returning from work ASAP rather than trying to save the planet. After all, she probably doesn’t have much more than 11 years to live herself so every second is precious.”

Seriously these links to climate change are getting ever more desperate. What on earth has feminism or toxic masculinity got to do with global warming outside the hot air produced by their lunacy? Yet the bigger question is where are our politicians, like CM, calling this nonsense to account? Seems like they have rolled over and played dead. Welcome to socialism via the back door, which everyday now seems via the front.

Scandal-less or Scandalous?

President Obama is often hailed by the left as having a blemish free record. No scandals. Good, clean and wholesome. However a CNN poll has revealed that,

69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.

Should we be surprised that the American people want answers to the Steele dossier? The FISA court approval of the wiretap? Did Obama know? If so, when did he know it? Many are questioning the spying conducted on the Trump 2016 campaign.

How ironic that 2020 hopeful Joe Biden is not asking for an endorsement from Obama, his former bromance partner. Maybe he feels he will be tainted by an investigation which involves his old boss.

When will the insanity end?

83yo murals at George Washington High School in the San Francisco Unified School District are apparently traumatizing students of non white backgrounds. Activists have successfully voted for their removal.

The Reflection & Action Group committee comprised of activists from minority groups, students, teachers and local artists reported,

At its conclusion the group voted and the majority recommended that the ‘Life of Washington’ mural be archived and removed because the mural does not represent SFUSD values.

Why not just stop teaching history all together? Or better still just a concocted version of it. Demonize these horrible white supremacists. Stage public floggings in place of detention for white kids in the schoolyard to atone for the sins of their forebears.

If only these teachers started to teach reality of how far society has come over the decades? Take the FBI hate crime stats which is close as we can get to true figures surrounding victimization.

Anti Black Hate Crimes have more than halved since 1996. As a % of the black population, Anti-Black hate crimes have fallen from 0.0131% to 0.0046% of their background.

As a % of all hate crimes, African Americans have fallen from 51% to 28.1%. Anti-White hate crime has also slid from just under 16% to 10.3% between 1996 and 2017.

As a % of the total population, anti-white hate crimes have slid from 0.00052% in 1996 to 0.00023% in 2017, up from 0.00016% in 2011. The media would never run a narrative that hate crimes against whites have jumped 44% since 2011.

The rest of the data can be found here.

It boggles the mind that these apparatchiks think that erasing history and reversing discrimination is the way forward to seek a better society.

How about the latest US history textbook which paints Trump as a liar and many of his followers are racists? Then the publisher wrote that an independent review justified such ridiculous additions as adding to debate and critical thinking. After you!

The media is no less complicit. Just as they wrote about racial bias in high schools. The data proves them emphatically wrong. Yet it paints a narrative so they push it that a cabal of racist teachers are deliberately targeting kids of colour.

Surely time to rename the George Washington High School to the Barack Obama High School instead?

This oppression obsession must end. We must stop bending over for activists who find problems where they don’t exist. This will end up in civil disruption if we aren’t careful.

Mud-wrestling Mazie Hirono impugns the integrity of the AG

Democratic Party Senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono,  launched a disgraceful Trump Derangement Syndrome laced slander of Attorney General William Barr during a hearing over the Mueller Report. She accused him of lying and demanded he resign. It was bile that maintained the class of questioning that was so evident during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. The Democrats can’t seem to grasp that this 2-year media-led Russia collusion conspiracy has become such a dead horse that Rasmussen has Trump’s monthly approval rating at a two year high.

The best argument put forward by the Democrats was that the 19-page memo requested by Mueller (which was made entirely public) was several weeks late. Barr chose to release it with the entire 448 pages of the report. 

Where was Ms. Hirono when A-G Loretta Lynch happened to meet Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac where they spoke about golf and grandkids immediately before the Clinton email probe? Deathly silent.

When will the Democrats learn that driving for impeachment is wearing thin on the American public? When will they put forward some real policies other than “reject whatever Trump puts forward“? A Rasmussen Reports survey on March 28th revealed that just 31% of all Likely U.S. Voters thought congressional Democrats should do their own investigation even though the Mueller probe has failed to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. 61% said Democrats in Congress should move on to other issues. 

All this hearing has revealed is that Mariko Hirono, Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein and other Democratic senators have shown themselves to be so out of touch. There is no way the Democrats will win 2020 with such pitiful displays of madness. Get over it and start convincing the American people that you are a credible choice otherwise, we will have to endure another 4 years of TDS.

Boycotters’ bluster

CM was not a fan of Israel Folau’s tweets on homosexuals, fornicators, sinners, adulterers etc. Yet CM defends his right to say it. Come to think of it, CM has never sought moral guidance from the controversial Wallaby rugby star. Nonetheless Folau thinks CM and many others are destined to burn in hell too. Yet he is protected by the Constitution of Australia whether we like it or not. That supersedes an ARU contract.

We now hear that if his contract is sustained, several players have threatened to boycott the side if he is selected.

That’s their choice. However the threat sounds so much like all of those Hollywood celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump was elected. Pretty much every single one remains in the US. Even Jamie Oliver, the Naked Chef, said he’d leave the UK if Brits voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum. He still lives in a £9m mansion in Hampstead, London. Idle threats. Here is betting every player threatening to boycott Folau will end up putting lucrative player contracts ahead of virtue signaling when pressed to make a stand. Which is hypocritical. If they stand for nothing, they’ll fall for anything.

Folau had very similar views publicized ahead of the Same Sex Marriage (SSM) debate when he first caught the ire of social media opinion. He was on record for telling team mate David Pocock of his beliefs on the matter leading into the plebiscite. Pocock still played with him and there is plenty of footage showing both embracing after tries were scored even when SSM was legislated.

We live in a society that is constantly threatening free speech. Folau’s comments may well cost him other endorsements. That is the market price he bears for holding his deeply devout Christian views in a society too afraid to say anything controversial. He never called for the murder of these groups. Only that their ultimate destiny was decided by God as written in the Bible.

Hypocrisy in the way the West deals with (certain) faiths is rife. The tragedy that was the Christchurch terror attack has led the Canterbury Crusaders rugby team to reconsider its name so as not to offend Muslims. Devout Muslim Sonny Bill Williams even played for the side after his conversion to Islam. Didn’t seem to phase him and he didn’t protest once. Although he did take exception to having Bank of NZ sponsorship displays on his uniform as it conflicted with his religious beliefs. Did we call for an inquisition? His religious beliefs were protected.

Where have those same activists been to bully The Saracens in Middlesex to select a more palatable name for the sake of countless victims of Islamic terror? Nowhere and most wouldn’t find any links between the two. No one in their right mind ties the Saracens or Crusaders as inciting hatred against the religions of either. They’re rugby clubs – period. 99.99% get that. Yet activists make out the majority leans the other way.

Izzy Folau May have offended some with his tweets. Everyone gets it. Many have just dismissed it with a roll of the eyes. Surely their lives have moved on without so much as a skip in the beat.

Yet we live in a world where some see offense and outrage in everything to the point of demanding litigation to protect hurt feelings. Canada even introduced a bill (C-16) compelling speech where jail terms for the incorrect use of a pronoun are a punishment. It is a slippery slope.

We should be careful what we wish for. The free speech noose will only tighten and eventually we won’t be able to speak our minds or the truth. That’s when society splinters.

Best let the Folau’s of the world make grandiose tweets and let society judge on an individual basis rather than trying to force our value sets on others. Do we honestly think we can force Folau to repent? If his contract was rescinded would he suddenly give up the teachings of his faith? Not a chance. We need to accept the views of others, even those we disagree with.

Do we truly believe the overwhelming majority of homosexuals/fornicators/sinners/adulterers a) believed Folau’s tweet or; b) were deeply offended? Or did most shake their heads and chuckle at his views?

CM is surprised that white Christian missionaries haven’t been chastised for converting so many Pacific Islanders, including Folau, to become devout followers over the centuries. Surely that must follow.
