A crisis of confidence

If you listened to Labor MP, Jackie Trad, and her smug commentary on Saturday night, you would think that Queensland voters are in love with the Labor Party. But she’s wrong. Queenslanders are not in love with the Labor Party. They did not run down to the ballot box jumping for joy at the prospect of electing a new Labor government that looks pretty much the same as the old one that they blasted out of office less than three years...

The failing front line in the war against ‘extreme’ Islam

On the one hand, a public servant might lose his head to a knife-wielding jihadi. And on the other hand, he could be labelled a racist bigot by Big Brother, lose his job and be cast out from society into the exterior darkness of wailing and gnashing teeth. Actually, to be truthful, they are both cards dealt in the same hand. It’s a hand called ‘being perceived to be the slightest, teeny-tiny bit concerned about Islam’. And all public...

The litany of stupidity

As police officers were carrying out the largest anti-terror raids in Australia’s history yesterday, I went out on a limb and made a really bold prediction: the next 24 hours would see all sorts of people in high places fall over themselves to absolve Islam of all responsibility. Actually, it wasn’t that bold at all. Blind Freddy could see it coming. In fact, this woeful prayer to Islam has been underway for quite some time. Exactly...

Andrew Broad’s courage & Stuart Robert’s homophobia

Courage should be applauded. Especially when it comes from a politician. And there is no doubt about it. The Federal Member for Mallee, Andrew Broad, is a man of courage. Mr Broad has not only been brave enough to oppose uniformed military involvement in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, he has put his opposition in writing. In doing so, he’s pulled no punches, acknowledging in black and white text that he disagrees with the...

Promoting childcare is unproductive insanity

If there is anything that meets the definition of stupidity with absolute perfection, it is having the Productivity Commission write a report to promote childcare. Childcare, by its very nature, is inefficient. And a reliance on childcare actually subverts parental care, which is the most productive thing that anyone can do to raise good citizens and build a sustainable society. However, as logic is not the strongest point of most...

Getting history wrong, even as it’s brought to light

The Defence LGBTI Information Service (DEFGLIS) has partnered with the Australian Catholic University, University of Melbourne and Macquarie University to “highlight the contributions made by LGBTI people who have served in Australia’s Army, Navy and Air Force.” Whoa! The Australian Catholic University? That’s a serious problem right there. The Australian Catholic University might be Catholic in name, and it might seek to be the...

Flogging a dead horse

Talk about flogging a dead horse. Literally. The Greens have introduced yet another bill into another parliament to legalise euthanasia. This is not the first time this has happened. In fact, so far as I can tell, there have been at least 14 similar bills introduced into federal, state and territory parliaments since 1995. All bar one were defeated. And the only one that was voted through was overturned quick smart. Yet Greens...

Learning that LGBT is not libertarian

What would you get if you crossed a three-year old screaming in the supermarket because they want a lolly, Stalin on a bad day and the rainbow? The answer to that is simple: the LGBT movement’s demand for homosexual marriage. It’s an emotional demand advanced by bullies. That also means it’s devoid of logic. The case for homosexual marriage is no different than that pushed by those who promote polygamy, polyamory, incest and...

The good and the bad of the budget

So it’s the day after budget. It doesn’t seem like all that much has changed. That’s because the real budget atrocities are never known on the night. It’s all the grants for all the revolutionary social groups that are the real killer. You can rest well assured that I will be sniffing these out. Inner City Legal Centre I’m looking directly at you. And that’s just the start. But there are some things to say right off the bat. First up,...

Warren Entsch should apologise

The Liberal Member for Leichhardt, Warren Entsch, has recently confirmed double standards at play in our society. Islam is protected, and when Muslims rampaged violently through our nation’s largest city because they disliked a second-rate You Tube video, politicians fell over themselves to condemn this film as offensive. Yet, just this week, Warren Entsch himself used the name of Jesus Christ in a base and derogatory manner....
