Diversity

What do we really want from an army?

IMG_0811.JPG

It is a serious question. What do we really want from our armed forces? We pay billions in taxes to hopefully arm them to the teeth with the best technology, skills, training and capabilities to win wars should we ever find ourselves in one. Victory is the only choice in war. The ideal scenario is to make the enemy fear you enough such as you won’t end up in battle. However the military should never be a place that is used to test social experiments.

Then why the push for making the military or any other emergency service anything other than the best? Gender balance and diversity are irrelevant. News has resurfaced that the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) are being set gender recruitment targets. It is insanity. Merit should be the only criteria. If 100% of them happen to be women based on merit then so be it but setting gender targets as a slated goal is obtuse. If more women wish to join the armed forces through desire, hunger and passion than men then that is expressing a clear will.

Eligibility standards are being lowered to help hit diversity targets. You can see the standards difference in these two charts posted by the ADF.

IMG_0812IMG_0813

Recruiters at the ADF have been told they must hire women or face relocation if they don’t comply. The recruiters say there are no jobs available for men in the in the infantry as a rifleman or artilleryman. But these positions are marked as ‘recruit immediately’ if a female applies. If a 50kg woman is in the artillery a 43.2kg M-107 shell is over 80% of her weight. An 80kg man would be lifting the same shells at around half of his weight. This is basic physics.

The West Australian newspaper reported one recruiter who said, “This is political correctness gone mad. I don’t care if it is a man or a woman – I just want to get the best person for the job.”

Yet the political correctness is promoted from the top. Defence chief, Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin, stressed the importance of diversity for the ADF. “A diverse workforce is all about capability. The greater our diversity, the greater the range of ideas and insights to challenge the accepted norm, assess the risks, see them from a different perspective, and develop creative solutions.”

Let us not confuse diversity with skills. In WW2, the US Army employed Native American Indians to work in intelligence. The idea that their native tongue was next to impossible to decode if transmissions were intercepted by the enemy. The US military wasn’t making a diversity play to even out race, gender or religion. It was employing a clear tactical advantage to help win a war. Such intelligence is vital in planning battles and tactics. The enemy wants to know our plans in advance such they can ambush or counter. The Navaho language meant the Japanese intelligence forces were completely flummoxed and suffered huge losses as a result. The merit was the rarity of the Navaho language, a skill no one else had. Think of how hard the British worked at breaking the codes of the German Enigma machines at Bletchley Park. Skill is is the defining factor.

It gets more ridiculous. One senior retired military contact has said that those who are recruited are now allowed to raise a red card in protest if a drill-sergeant is offending their sensitivities. Seriously? Surely an army is as strong as its weakest link and if leaders can’t drill discipline into his or her troops what hope have they in battle? Perhaps they can just disobey orders and avoid a court martial because they deployed a red card on the battlefield. Surely no one joins the army expecting it to be a life of late morning lie-ins, frequent recreation and late nights at the bar.

The military should never be a social experiment. It is off limits. This is not to say women should not have a chance to join it. In fact the desire to serve one’s country is indeed an excellent trait to have but putting in place a system that excludes Victor, a fitness freak with a black belt in martial arts from joining the infantry, for Victoria, a lady with a BMI of 30 makes no sense. If Victoria is the black-belted gym junkie and Victor is a slob then of course it makes sense to recruit her.

At the end of the day with bullets whizzing around and artillery shells exploding around them it is not hard to envisage that every soldier looks to the person to the left or right of them wondering only about their capability to do the job, not celebrating the army’s pro-diversity drive. Anything that potentially damages morale should be avoided at all costs. Dropping standards for both genders is fraught with long term risks and turning the ADF into an organization that puts more emphasis on feeling warm and cuddly versus a gung-ho group of steely-eyed effective combat troops lowers our capability to defend.

We must move on from this politically correct nonsense because in the end it will literally kill us. Then again we are getting our submarines built in Australia, not because they will be better built but because our defence capability took a back seat to buying votes. Don’t think our enemies aren’t always keeping on top of our (growing lack of ) capabilities.

Egyptian TV host defends the West’s attitudes toward Islamic terror

IMG_0716.JPG

Not many will have seen this video because the mainstream media is loathe to publish anything remotely balanced these days. Egyptian TV host Youssef Al-Husseini launched a scathing attack on Islamic terrorism post the Finsbury Park mosque attack and said “The terror attack that unfortunately took place [in London] was a vehicular attack. This time, it was near a mosque, if you follow the news. How can anyone decide to carry out a terror attack near a place of worship – near a mosque, a church, or any temple where God is worshipped? In all the previous vehicular attacks, at least in 2016 and 2017, the “heroes” were, unfortunately, Muslims. And then people wonder why they hate us. Why do they hate us?! If they didn’t, there would be something mentally wrong with them. [We] use weapons all the time, slaughter people all the time, flay people all the time, burn people alive all the time, run people over all the time, and plant explosive devices and car bombs all the time. Why do you still expect them to love you?”

As written on the day of the London mosque attack, it was an unquestionably despicable act. This tit-for-tat terrorism serves no purpose other than to trigger further escalation on both sides. No sooner had a white terrorist run down a group of worshippers outside a mosque than another depraved individual tried to detonate a suicide vest in Brussels’ Central Station supposedly yelling “Allahu Akbar“. The sad aspect of terrorism in the West today is that it is happening on such a regular basis that many people are becoming numbed to it.

However the mosque attack was the such a bad turning point. The UK government is ill equipped to deal with it now. Should they mobilize the full compliment of 80,000 British Army soldiers and 27,000 reservists to guard the 2,000-odd mosques in the UK? Is putting barricades on footpaths a real solution? Do Brits want to see tanks parked outside Westminster or Trafalgar Square? Should x-ray machines be installed at every train or bus station? Is that a sustainable solution to the problem giving birth to vigilantes? People want action, not politically correct hand-wringing. They are sick of being told to suck it up and embrace ‘stronger together’ and ‘diversity is our strength’ or ‘terrorism is a fact of any big city’ style pandering. The majority of people are tolerant but there is a tipping point of common sense where they stop believing we win acceptance from jihadis by denying our own identities. Governments prefer to take the soft approach which only offers a safe haven to the activities that end up devastating even more innocent lives.

The idea peddled by limp wristed governments that Muslims need special protection only makes it worse. ALL citizens of any denomination, race or background deserve to feel safe. Yes, everyone knows it is a radical minority that is causing the problems. There is a paramount need to work with the Muslim community to root out those that only bring more distrust. No, it isn’t a license to condone bigotry either. However unless they feel we are ‘truly’ standing behind them rather than virtue signaling from the safety of a smartphone nothing will get better. That is an absolute. The further governments repress  the freedom of people to openly express their feelings the worse it will get.

We are taught from the earliest age that two wrongs don’t make a right. The rise of vigilantism is a natural reaction to governments that stick to the politically correct dialogue and skirt around the issues by trying to gag people whether by law (Canada’s M-103) or threat. Politicians cannot win the will of the people by shutting them up. They have to listen. Because the government isn’t listening militia will spawn and do what they deem necessary for the public interest, The last thing government needs is the widespread growth of people taking the law into their own hands. There are two things that ran through the mind of truck attacker Darren Osborne – he’d either be killed or be locked up for a long time after committing his terror. That is a pretty big price to pay but one he obviously thought worth paying.

To quote Al-Husseini again,

What have the Muslims shown [the West] other than the bombing of their capital cities? What have the Muslims shown them other than vehicular attacks? What have the Muslims shown them other than shooting at them? What have the Muslims shown them other than burning them alive in cages? They burn other Muslims alive as well. They all claim to have a monopoly over Islam. What have the Muslims shown [the Westerners] to make them love them, and welcome them in their countries?…

…The Muslims are constantly whining, lamenting, and wailing: The West is conspiring against us. Fine, let’s assume that the West is conspiring against you and only sees your negative image. Where is your positive image? The Muslims of the Abbasid state presented a positive image. They exported scientific research through the so-called “Muslim” scholars, most of whom, by the way, were not from the Arabian Peninsula. None of them were from the Arabian Peninsula. They were all from North Africa, and from what are now called the former Soviet Islamic republics of central Asia…

…What have the Arab countries contributed to the world? Nothing. What have the Islamic countries contributed to the world? Nothing. What have they contributed in the field of scientific research? Two, three, four, or ten scientists in the course of 1,435 years? C’mon, man! Let’s forget about 435 years and keep just one millennium. Ten important scientists in 1,000 years?! Who invented the airplane? The missile? The space shuttle? Centrifuges? Quantum mechanics? The Theory of Relativity? Who? Where did the most important philosophers come from? Not from here. And you still expect them to love us?! And then you say: “Terror-sponsoring countries like Britain deserve…” Nonsense! People do not deserve to be killed, slaughtered, or run over by a car.”

Al-Husseini makes some very valid points yet why does the media not choose to highlight his stance? The irony of those who have seen his video clip is the social media comment section. Even those who take quite a strong stance on diversity and tolerance joked along the lines of  “is he still alive?” Doesn’t that sort of truly reveal the inner feelings of people rather than the public perception they seek to portray openly for fear of recrimination? We should applaud Al-Husseini’s bravery to speak out like this. His comments are exactly the type of bold response that throws the West’s constant rolling over into the dustbin. We can be sure Al-Husseini’s comments are heartfelt and a wish for all to climb out from behind the protection of identity politics and embrace ‘reality’.

Since Osborne’s truck attack, Tommy Robinson’s book ‘Enemy of the State’ is now the number one selling book on Kindle and paperback. So UK government, are you sure you understand the mood of the nation? They are more than likely to back Mr Al-Husseini’s views than yours.

Australia needs to see a shrink ASAP

IMG_9060.PNG

Australia is officially in need of therapy.  Primary school principal Jeff Lyon ­revealed instead of Mothers Day “I believe celebrating International Day of Families is a more inclusive way of celebrating the richness, diversity and complexity of living and loving as a family in the modern world,”  Ironically the opposition leader’s daughter attends the school in question and had the principal reverse the decision.

Schools have no place espousing identity politics or any other politics for that matter. The idea of Mother’s Day is to show respect. I’m guessing at least 99% of the mothers with kids that attend the school physically gave birth to them. I’m sure they love their kids and want to instill best behaviours not have some school principal enforce his own set of identity politics on them. They are mothers FFS.

The Safe Schools project in Victoria  has been all about gender fluidity and sexual indoctrination not anti- bullying education. It’s chief architect Roz Ward, a self proclaimed LGBT Marxist, openly admitted it isn’t about anti-bullying but shoving sexual identity politics down kids throats. It promotes cross dressing days to teach kids what it is like to be the opposite sex as one example. Another example of the sex education is to get kids to role play a 17yo girl who is bi-curious, has had 15 sexual partners, most of which were encounters where unprotected sex occurred because she was paralytically drunk as if that is the ‘norm’

In a twist of irony, Ward was forced to step down from the government panel on safe schools for physically attacking a Trump supporter when he won the White House.

In any event, Australia has lost the plot. Where I commended Shorten yesterday on ignoring identity politics for a change, the media backlash has caused him to climb down and apologize. For what? Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young claimed it was insulting to migrants. No wonder the Greens are sliding into irrelevance.

In the face of a rapidly deteriorating fiscal situation, the risk of a credit rating cut, a slowing China and a property bubble about to burst with people up to their eyeballs in debt our politicians are focused on the trivial and apologizing for the off chance they might hurt someone’s feelings. Time to slam a can of “toughen up”

Why don’t firms hire staff like they’d choose a heart surgeon?

IMG_0571.PNG

How many times have I heard over my career senior management talk incessantly about the need for new blood yet when it comes to doing anything about it with regards to new hires 99% of the time  the safe cookie cutter is favoured over the left field choice. It is ever more so the truth in the post GFC world. Managers seem afraid to take calculated risks because the left-field candidate may jeopardize their own positions if he/she fails.

As an example managers in finance often fall foul of hiring exclusively within the industry. The level of inferiority complex can be so overwhelming that they fawn at the idea a Goldman Sachs employee will work for them for some ridiculous sum. Invariably they forget that Goldman hires duds too and usually those that get cast off are in that bucket. If you are properly good, there is no incentive to leave Goldman as the salaries, opportunities and product capabilities are too wonderful vs peers.

Yet many financial firms set upon trying to change the firm into a wannabe Goldman Sachs. They forget that their clients can already deal with Goldman directly should they feel the urge. Why on earth would they choose to deal with a wannabe copy? Surely each firm has a unique selling property that is of value to clients. Why not invest and promote that rather than overlook the talent within. Who honestly values flattery? Besides, there are so many cautionary tales with hiring ex-bulge bracket employees who are so used to being spoon fed every possible product line that they struggle immensely when they are required to actually put elbow grease into the job. It is uncanny.

Some firms occasionally hire from outside the industry with huge success. Instead of financial analysts pontificating about a stock, someone who has worked within the industry has a far better feel for cycles, internal decision processes and strategy that formulates under different points in the cycle. Clients glean that value. They couldn’t care less about the stock target or valuation metrics because that ultimately is the investor’s job. Besides the history of brokers behind the curve is etched in stone. Unique context and perspective trumps commoditization every time.

Some financial (and other) professionals have such checkered histories that one wonders how on earth they get rehired. If companies viewed their hiring decisions as akin to selecting a heart surgeon for a life threatening operation, many of these people would never make the cut (no pun intended) given the body count from previous poor execution. Yet many firms continue to put quacks in their ‘surgeries’ with expected disastrous results. Generally hiring managers run interference on these bad choices to cover their own mistakes.

Many HR surveys (including Harvard) show that bad hires end up costing way more than the salary when the cost of onboarding is included. Not only do companies potentially have to foot the cost of a headhunter (25-30% of salary is a standard fee) , what follows is poorer output, the potential for incumbent employees to become disgruntled at the new hire’s lack of ability and most worryingly an increase in dissatisfied customers. If they land a toxic employee that can damage team productivity to such an extent the best performers will seek challenges elsewhere.

So in a world that is getting harder and harder to succeed in, on what basis does conventional thinking bring anything to the table but more of the same? What does hiring a competitor do other than bring similar tactics? In fact, the more telling question is if they were knocking the lights out their success would permeate within their current employer. Unseating happy employees requires dynamite way over and above what they can probably afford.  What hirers often forget is the extent to which internal human capital plays a part. How awful does one’s human capital creation have to be to consider jumping ship?

That is where the left field choice comes into its own when hiring. A person genuinely looking for career change may well be doing it because they’ve tired of several decades of the same industry. They’ll likely come full of fresh ideas, out of the box solutions and lessons from a completely different background with the passion of a new graduate.

Many companies fail to adapt because the stupid questions don’t get asked by the incumbent staff for fear of ridicule. Yet someone eager to learn may ask the most basic of questions and ask “does it work?” One company I consult had a new boss join from HQ and he questioned why staff had meetings on such trivial matters? One staff member said “we’ve been doing it for 15 years!” When the boss said “does it work?” all replied ‘not really”. Yet they offered little in the way of proposals to change what was broken.

In a sense I see many businesses that operate in status quo mode where change if ever happens on a trivial or traumatic basis not through consistent due diligence and proactive leadership.

Think of it like asking an elderly person “if you had one more day to live what would you do?” “Well I’d play golf, take my wife to an expensive dinner and drive a Ferrari” If you asked Athenia”why don’t you do it now” the response would be “well I’m not dead yet!”

Look at the successful businesses around the world today and invariably the corporate culture is likely to be open and flexible. Bosses are prepared to hire people more qualified than them because they want to learn. Show me a company where inferior staff are hired to protect a manager and I’ll show you a dud business.

Which then goes back to the most important ingredient in a tech savvy smartphone world. Analog relationships. Look at the latest recruitment sites which ask candidates to fill in fields where a computer will sift through algorithms to screen. These systems remove the most important skill in selecting good candidates – gut feel. A good recruiter can understand a client’s needs far better than a computer. Besides if a computer is searching for terms fixated on what you’ve done and not what you want to do it will screen you out every time. What a wasted opportunity!

Human nature is uncanny. Risk taking is inevitable but instead of most people becoming  victims of change only a mere few will end up being agents of it and there will be no second guessing who dares wins! So instead of screening for the textbook definition of identity based diversity how about focus on diversity of thought!

 

Dear WaPo, please advise the President on the correct balance

IMG_0213.JPG

Dear Washington Post,

In your article titled ‘Trump’s administration isn’t very diverse. Photo ops make it glaringly obvious,‘ you failed to do one important thing. Like much of the reporting in left wing journalism you find it easy to find fault in everything Trump does yet offer no solutions. If you have such a strong view on the subject please let your readers know what is the politically correct mix of races, genders and sexual orientation. Because instead of perhaps appointing people based on merit and ability to carry out his orders to the letter it is more important to focus on identity. I am not saying all his picks are necessarily sensible or palatable but that is his choice to make. If he screws up with his team and loses office in 4 years then it will be his own fault.

To turn the argument on its head imagine if Trump appointed Milo Yiannopoulos to his administration. He is not a US citizen but suppose he was. He ticks the homosexual box and black boyfriend box. There has to be virtue signaling there but the left would drop all that because he is a White Supremacist. It shows that even identity politics has limitations and conditions.

Here is a great example of why affirmative action is a bad thing, especially when signaled by the minority. Donna Laframboise wrote in her book, “The delinquent teenager” the shenanigans of how identity politics is put ahead of ability in the construction of the climate bible.

We all made the mistake of believing the IPCC was a gem of an organization simply because it is connected to protecting the environment…How can a young man without even a Masters degree become an IPCC lead author? Good question. . . Rather than recruiting real experts like Reiter the IPCC enlisted young, inexperienced, non-experts instead.”

A quote from an IPCC lead author: “There are far too many politically correct appointments, so that developing country scientists are appointed who have insufficient competence to do anything useful.”

A quote from a team member from a developing country: “The team members from the developing countires (including myself) were made to feel welcome and accepted as part of the team. In reality we were out of our intellectual depth as meaningful contributors to the process.”

Yes, that is right. Inclusion is more important than qualification. Let’s put people who aren’t in a position to add real value to a process and use those results to allocate billions of dollar and drive policies affecting billions of people.

“Rather than keeping its distance from those whose careers have been associated with activism, the scientific establishment now honors, celebrates and promotes such people.”

So I ask WaPo again what is the correct balance? He has two Asian American women and one African American male but no Hispanics. Even if Obama had 39% women in his cabinet, were they all stellar? Did Americans think Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac the day before the FBI was to pass its judgement on his wife’s criminality spoke of dreadful ethics or is it OK because she’s an African American woman? Frankly it shouldn’t matter her gender or ethnicity. Bad judgement is just that and the more I read such garbage journalism the more I know how playing the identity card will alienate more and more Americans.

If it’s “political” it is bound to be “incorrect”

In one girl’s high school in Australia the words “girls, women and females” will be replaced with non-gender specific language by teachers. Have they bothered to cast a vote for the female students on whether they care if they are called girls? What about parents? What if 100% said they didn’t care? Makes as much sense as the Diversity Council of Australia saying “guys” is an inappropriate work place vocabulary.

In another school in Sydney, kids are now no longer allowed to clap to respect those kids who have sensitive hearing. “Silent cheering”, “pulling excited faces” and “punching the air” are acceptable alternatives. Although is it the real reason?

In the UK last year, feminists in the National Union of Students (NUS) asked conference attendees to refrain from clapping as it might cause anxieties and use jazz hands instead.

Jazz hands are used throughout NUS in place of clapping as a way to show appreciation of someone’s point without interrupting or causing disturbance, as it can create anxiety,” said Nona Buckley-Irvine, general secretary at the London School of Economics Students’ Union. “I’m relatively new to this and it did feel odd at first, but once you’ve used jazz hands a couple of times it becomes a genuinely nice way to show solidarity with a point and it does add to creating a more inclusive atmosphere.”

I’m not quite sure what that anxiety might be? Usually we accept applause as appreciation for positives. The more rapturous the applause the bigger these sense of occasion. Are these diversity junkies so lacking in self esteem that they need to drag down those who achieve greatness legitimately? It’s farcical.

We must stop this “victimization” culture. We can’t continue to drive this politically correct nanny state indoctrination.

My eldest daughter was struggling in one of her school subjects ahead of her exams the other month. She was upset and wondered how she’d climb above the average. So we sat down twice a week and we worked the problem. She ended up smashing it and realized that changing the way she learned, studied and applied herself was key. Not hide behind excuses and safe spaces. Improvise, adapt and overcome.

The Safe Schools programme should be scrapped. Kids should be told the power of perseverance. That life isn’t a marshmallow lined path. Obstacles well get thrown up on our journeys. We can’t expect a safety valve at every turn. I was bullied at school. I got over it. I adapted and overcame. I didn’t seek to dob in bullies. I outsmarted them. Bullying goes on and of course it can’t be condoned but Safe Schools has zero to do with stopping  bullying and the organizers have said as much.  Perhaps we should look at how our relative education standards in Australia are slipping vs the rest of the world. It sums up today. We fight tooth and nail for the trivial and bury our heads on the sand about real issues such as an economy on the brink. They won’t need jazz hands because there will be nothing to applaud.

‘Diversity’ needs to be chucked into the dustbin

duskynaske

I’m sure those that celebrate diversity have automatically leapt to the conclusion that I am a bigot, racist and without doubt xenophobic to write such a thing. Not so although being white skinned probably helps paint a narrative that progressives will  immediately turn to promote their cause.  To turn the argument on its head (an argument I made in a previous post) my Facebook friends list covers every main religion, every race, every sexual orientation and a wide variety of age groups. It is such a culturally diverse list (and I am sure many others have it too) that we are already living the “diversity” dream of our own volition. Here is the bigger point, not once have I ever thought of these people as anything other than people. I don’t think of them as what they are, only who they are. The word diversity and all of the political correct nonsense surrounding it should be thrown into the nearest dustbin we can find. The fact we keep making such a huge storm in a teacup over people’s rights, feelings and protecting the growing number of fragile egos into ‘safe spaces.’

My two daughters are in the picture above. They are mixed race. 100% Japanese mother mixed with a mongrel that is me – Norwegian, Polish, British, Austrian, Scottish, Irish, Australian and so on. Interracial marriage has become much more commonplace. According to Pew Research, inter-ethnic and interracial marriage has grown from 3% in the 1980s toward 10% today. Another Gallup poll showed that those approving such marriages in the US had grown from 4% in 1959 to 90%+ today. I would argue that the trends of tolerance and diversity has been improving for a long time. Why more than ever are we having ‘diversity’ shoved down our throats? All this moral preening.

I was kind of surprised at how many Remain camp people instantly dragged out the xenophobia card. These repressed old white poor uneducated xenophobes (OWPUX). That somehow all immigrants in the UK were soon to be turfed out. No reasoned thought just that Britain would round them up and shut the door. Honestly, if companies in the UK had valuable immigrant employees it is natural they would sponsor them and even more natural for the government to make such transition simpler. Arguments again pointed that we needed more multiculturalism and many ‘Remain’ camp people had this guilt complex over being perceived racist. People openly saying the ‘deleted’ Facebook friends that voted ‘Leave’. If there was ever an action to admonish the principles of diversity this was it. Just shut down debate and free speech. Some people feel compelled to write posts in such tortured ways so as to not offend anyone. It is bullshit people. We must call it for what it is. We can’t get to the bottom of social problems if we are forever living in fear of our own shadows in social media. I think if you are not brazenly posting pictures of utter poor taste like with a rifle and Cecil the dead lion then let the free speech reign.

When we look at today’s mainstream media (MSM), we couldn’t get a poorer representation of how people really think. In recent times, think of how often they have totally missed the point yet carry on as if they are experts. Global Financial Crisis – the mainstream media were cheerleaders without nearly a single open minded thought of the calamity that awaited. They completely missed Brexit. They’re completely missing Trump and even now in the midst of calling him a bigot, racist, fascist etc he has the highest support from black, Hispanic and gays than any other Republican candidate in history. Hardly the result if these people believed The Donald was that. The recent media polls now are so skewed to get a narrative to look as though Hillary Clinton will romp home will be rudely shocked when election time comes. I showed my Twitter follower study which has Trump smashing Clinton in growth. On June 21, Trump had 9.1mn followers. Today 9.38mn. Clinton had 7.02mn on June 21. Now has 7.16mn. So Trump added 280k to Clinton’s 140k – twice the rate in one week!  In fact Brexit was the same. ‘Vote Leave’ had slightly more followers than ‘RemaIN’. 

The MSM completely jumped over the Orlando massacre trying to avoid using ‘radical Islam’ despite evidence so incontrovertible. In the ‘bleeding heart world of the diversity crowd’ they lit up monuments around the world and ‘prayed for LGBT rights’. Are you kidding me? Gay provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos  smacked these progressive liberals  in the head after the Orlando tragedy saying their LGBT pacifism is solving nothing and worse it is not doing anything to change the minds of the morons that would commit such crimes.

People have to open their eyes and stop giving into this misguided altruism. I am shocked at how many are so swayed by such empty rhetoric and propaganda. You’re already diverse and the more diversity junkies try to publicly divide us into more and more minorities

In Australia, several university students are the victims of a secret trial over racial discrimination law 18C. It is so out of whack. It is so shameful in its persecution of innocent people who potentially have their futures severely damaged by the outcome. The Australian wrote, “Human Rights Commission staff and president Gillian Triggs were accused in a racial hatred case yesterday of “stooping” to a ­regrettable low in a desperate ­attempt to “avoid scrutiny of their shameful conduct” against university students…The students are accused of ­racial hatred for writing Facebook posts [unfounded] which caused offence to Ms Prior after she had turned them away from the computer lab in the Oodgeroo Unit in May 2013. Ms Prior went on stress leave and is seeking more than $250,000 damages after not working for almost all of the past three years.” This culture of victimology must stop.

This push for diversity in Australia has plunged new depths where our Diversity Council is trying to say that the use of the innocuous term “guys” is inappropriate workplace behaviour – What they hey? Does the Thought Police really need to butt into our office life? 99.9% are aware of the do’s and don’ts of the workplace. Each company has its own culture and diversity already but even CEOs of companies like Unilever are openly championing their progressive attitudes to diversity. I couldn’t care less. I am diverse and I don’t need others trying to indoctrinate me into a forced narrative I don’t believe in. I don’t think any more or less of Unilever because of it. Although in electronic job applications nowadays, you are often asked about ethnicity, sexual orientation and so on. I almost wonder falsely writing that I’m LGBT probably gives me a leg up because companies are petrified to be slandered as ‘bigoted’. How can the prove me wrong? Just like Lester Burnham did in American Beauty.

In Victorian schools, the Marxist government is having cross-dressing days for young children so they can role play the opposite sex for a day. Is the average 7 year old mature enough to understand?  Young teenagers are asked to role play (as one choice) a 17yo old bisexual girl who has had 15 sexual partners mostly unprotected because she is drunk. So our schools are endorsing illegal behaviour (underage drinking). Boys will also have the option to dress in female school uniform if they wish. As a parent there is no way in the world I would accept such education for my kids sneakily taught under the guise of ‘Safe Schools’ which is sold as anti-bullying. The founder and former head of the programme said preventing bullying wasn’t the aim – it is all about gender fluidity. The ironic thing is the Premier of Victoria who has pushed this Safe Schools program sends his kids to schools that aren’t signed up for the program. Father Eusebios, the Abbot of the Pantanassa Greek Orthodox Monastery, told some of the families at a forum in Belmore last month of the confusion and anxiety the new sex education classes are creating for children. He said, “I had a 13-year-old child come to me who tells me he’s been told to go home and find a picture of a male celebrity on the internet and explain to the entire class why he is sexually attracted to that male and he says to the teacher ‘I can’t do this’ and she removes him from the classroom.”

You get the point? While the political correctness mob go out of their way to promote multi-culturalism, diversity and equality at every turn, they merely categorise more people into more boxes which creates the exact opposite result. We are already a multi-cultural society. If the diversity vultures wish to live the real dreams of multi-culturalism instead of focusing on those that are already doing it, try focusing on those cultures that don’t value it and don’t share reciprocal values. Rant over.
