The trouble with Tony

In the lead-up to the 2013 election, the media went into overdrive about how Australians were faced with the grim possibility of voting in a Prime Minister who was a misogynistic, homophobic, anti-abortion, right-wing Neanderthal climate-denier. There was the mother-of-all-scare-campaigns designed to frighten people from giving the keys of The Lodge to a man framed as a fresh-faced graduate from the Inquisition’s darkest seminary....

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 Goodes oil on racial politics

Adam Goodes says he doesn’t want to just be remembered as a footballer. I’d say he’s probably going to get his wish and a lot more. Given his latest outburst claiming that Australia is a racist nation based on lies, Goodes is well on the way to making sure that he’s not remembered as a footballer at all. And that is a pity, because that is what Goodes is actually good at. He is athletic, has great skills and can play the game very...

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...

Beheadings in the backyard

Over 800 police have swooped to arrest 15 suspected terrorists preparing for attacks in Brisbane and Sydney. Authorities have not yet released all the details, but it has been announced that police disrupted a plan to attack random members of the public. In full view of the public. It is alleged that this would have included beheadings and mass shootings. Not surprisingly, the alleged terrorist activity was to have been conducted by...

Not dealing with the Islamic State

I wrote yesterday about how we should deal with the Islamic State. And just like charity, it all starts at home. We need to make sure that we are strong enough to protect ourselves internally before we embark on missions overseas, however warranted they may seem. Given the recent decision to raise terrorism threat levels, it is resoundingly clear that the internal danger is growing inside Australia. Although Australians didn’t need...

Dealing with the Islamic State

Everyone wants to do something about the Islamic State. But what? So far most of the action has amounted to a bunch of press conferences in which supposedly intelligent people drivel blather about the non-Islamic beliefs of those carving out the new Caliphate. For instance, Australia’s Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has refused to call the Islamic State the Islamic State because he believes it is not Islamic or a state. So he referred...

A month of insanity

What a month. It has just been absurd and insane. And I’m not talking about the printing, signing, preparing, filing and posting of thousands of documents for my legal action against the Chief of Defence Force that has taken up an enormous chunk of time. Nor am I referring to the constant battle against the stream of complaints from a single homosexual activist in Sydney that keep finding their way to my Queensland address from the...

Recognising the ridiculous

Exasperated Australians living across this wide, bronzed land are once again putting up with Senator Sarah Hanson-Young. She is otherwise known as the ‘Worst Senator Ever to have (Dis)graced Australia’s Red Chamber’. And considering the competition for that role, that’s saying something. Sarah is once again taking the bedroom antics of gay and lesbian people into the nation’s parliament. Between that and scowling, it’s about all she...

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...
