Defence declares war on conservative webpages

We all know the Australian Defence Force hierarchy have gone PC-mad.

The Chief of Army has admitted that the female recruitment program is a failure likely to result in less women in the military.

Yes. Less women.

And less men too. I’ve been informed by recruiters that they are not allowed to place keen, young and fit blokes in the ever growing number of ‘female only’ slots. That means less soldiers overall.

In corporate speak, this is called a ‘capability gap’. Ordinary Australians would simply describe it as bloody insane.

Speaking of insanity, the Chief of Army mentioned it in his speech letting the cat out of the bag on female recruitment. He described insanity as continuing to try the same old failed methods over and over again. And then he proceeded to push the program that he knows is a dud.

To make this situation even worse, Defence is now seemingly removing advertisements from ‘conservative’ websites. Apparently, advertising to conservative readers is ‘bigoted’, even though Defence’s own internal research shows that the majority of people who sign up to serve Australia have conservative political views and even – shock – believe that Islam is inherently violent.

Defence needn’t have paid for that ‘research’.

The loony ‘Left’ has always hated Defence and you don’t need to be Einstein to grasp an important reality: new age rainbow lovers have a less than tender attitude towards Australian culture, institutions and values. So don’t expect many of them to put their lives on the line for the nation anytime soon. It is conservative Australians who shoulder the load when it comes to defending Australia.

But I digress.

On 24 January the Defence Jobs Twitter account was alerted to Defence advertising on Breitbart, a conservative news website.

Defence Breitbart

However, to be fair, Defence Jobs was told that Breitbart was ‘racist’, ‘sexist’ and ‘homophobic’.

I think the digital dobber forgot to mention ‘Islamophobic’ as well, but hey, there were only 140 characters and I guess Defence instinctively grasped that ‘fact’ anyway. After all, just days earlier Breitbart was prepared to report that the driver behind the wheel during the ‘Melbourne incident’ had proclaimed himself to be a ‘Greek Islamic Kurd’.

Most news outlets in Australia were not so keen to report that fact. And the Victorian police even ordered a reporter to remove footage of a witness reporting that the words ‘Allahu akbar’ were shouted from the car.

Melbourne allahu akbar

But I digress again.

Back to the issue at hand: once alerted to the Breitbart advertisement Defence Jobs responded that they were now ‘getting this sorted’. One can only guess that Defence has now pulled all advertisements from Breitbart and similar sites, or from third parties that advertise on them.

I have asked Defence to confirm this. However, I think the email was automatically directed into the ‘Islamophobic/Homophobic/Racist/Bigoted’ spam filter because I didn’t get a response.

That’s not surprising. Breitbart readers might think a little like me. And the last thing embarrassed Defence head-honchos want is another person taking them to court and proving that they are breaking the law.

However, in the interests of helping Defence meet its goal of recruiting ‘diverse’ soldiers, I will point out that its current emphasis on Islam is not likely to meet the required audience. If Defence really does want fit, young Muslims who are keen on getting behind a gun it should cease with the warm and fuzzy stories about how recruits who can’t drink water are great soldiers.

Instead, it would probably have more success if it simply took an ad out in Dabiq, the Islamic State’s monthly magazine of love. After all, the Islamic State is having more luck than Defence recruiting Muslims from Australia…

  1. Hey I got an idea to help ADF recruitment !!!! I have a bunch of stuff I collected from my last deployment.

    I will dress up in my Pashtunie hat, doilly skull cap & nightie & very old battle-smok & walk into my local DFR recruiting centre proclaiming Allah-al-Snack-Bah !!! & let off a couple of party poppers. And ask for the 2CDO brochure.

    They’ll either say, “You’re the man we’re looking for !!!”, or call the cops.

  2. Can’t drink water and can’t wee standing up. Okay, we are in serious trouble. I miss my Dad dearly, he has passed away a number of years now. At times like this though, I am glad he, a Royal Engineer, is not here to see pc nonsense like this in the Defence Force. I find it insulting to his memory and those of other past veterans.

  3. Maybe we could put up all of the rights in order that Australia has lost after WW2 and then the rights we are set to loose due to the nonsense Political Correctness is set to create and then point out who they truly are and the history of this Political Correct degenerate mob comes from, Marxist, Communist, Bolsheviks, Nazis, Satanist, there is nothing good about them all, they work to lead people astray, we could point out all the cunning ways that they work in leading people astray, how they are the biggest murders of all time.
    There only ends is in working too enslave people.
    How they use and push the lowest common denominator so that people are all become nothings only to be treated like cattle.
    How it’s a Fabian system that just increases it’s power bit by bit year after year, to the point that no one can stand up against the madness of them.

    Trump is under siege by such degenerates.

  4. Well, as a British Veteran of 25 years service now naturalised as an Australia with many Australian Veterans as friends I can only tell you that the British tried the very same recruiting drive amongst the ethnic minorities in the late 90’s & the early part of this century. It was an abject failure.

    Speaking as one who has served at the very tip of the spear I can, as I am also sure Bernard would also attest, this young man will be about an useful as a tit on a fish during Ramadan should he be required to lead soldiers in an 24/7 operational environment.

    What an absolutely uninspiring prospect for the young soldiers who may have the misfortune to be placed under his command.

    One of the cornerstones of joining an organisations like the Armed Forces is the selfless sacrifice of ones own needs & beliefs for the greater needs of the people you serve with & in the case of leaders both junior & senior alike for, this unselfishness & self sacrifice bonds people together & creates cohesion & the will to fight for each other above all else.

    Anything else, Queen, Commonwealth, Country, Nation, Flag – all of it at the end of the day is blather, as is the media invented word that seems to have caught the word of senior military commanders in the Australian Armed Forces … ‘Mateship’.

    In the end soldiers sailors & airmen fight for each other.

    ‘Comradeship’ is a much better term for that which bonds men together in times of extreme duress during combat; this word ‘Mateship’ is just another PC word invented by the media to sound different.
