Since becoming a Queensland Senator last year, I have assigned a staffer to listen to the stories of people who have been victims of questionable lending practices of Banks.
The problem with Australian politics is the paradox of a lack of clear choices and a context of unprecedented polarisation.
Context and explanation meant absolutely nothing to the outraged leftist media complex collaborating with self-interested politicians when accusing Senator Fraser Anning of Nazi levels of racism for saying the words “final solution”.
Did I ever mention that words are important? Did I tell you to watch out when people start re-defining words? One of the greatest achievements of the Left in recent decades has been the redefining of the term “Right wing” to mean something that it patently isn’t.
The great majority of Western populations have been allowed remarkably little input into the policies of multiculturalism, policies that will affect their lives and their futures.
Imagine the scene. A bunch of young, tattooed guys are hanging out in a local park. A girl walks past on a footpath. “Hey you!” Screams one of the gang “Get down on all fours when you walk past us to show some respect.”
There is nothing new about journalists in the mainstream media suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Watching supposedly respectable commentators like Rachel Maddow break down practically weeping when Trump won the election was sobering, to say the least.
Nothing has improved since 1982. Today, the main focus of education is on managing students and transmitting prescribed ‘knowledge’ into them, based on the assumption that no other factors are relevant.
With the announcement of Tommy Robinson’s (now delayed) tour of Australia, all the usual suspects have come out of the woodwork, with all the usual boring and predictable outrage.Barely pausing for breath, and without the slightest hint of the irony involved, they are now demanding that Peter Dutton defend our borders at all costs against this deadly threat.
RACIST! XENOPHOBIC! EVIL RIGHT WING! GENOCIDAL! MURDEROUS! SHAMEFUL! INEXCUSABLE! LITERALLY HITLER! I’m just jotting down some of the words and phrases that the ABC might use if the Australian Government took one million of our Muslims and detained them in camps sewing garments for sportswear companies whilst they were being re-educated.
I was kicked out of high school twice—first for taping Miss July 1968 to the Spanish teacher’s roll-up screen to surprise her when she pulled it down. She was surprised, alright—as was I.The school suspended me, my father blistered my backside with a hickory-wood paddle, and my older brother pummelled me for helping his favourite playmate escape from under his mattress.
The news of Larry’s departure from this vale of tears has knocked me for six. I fell down in a heap, unable to formulate any intelligent thought. The world suddenly became a darker place. I knew he wouldn’t make Christmas, but the knowledge didn’t help with the reality of the painful loss.
Here at the Pickering Post, we have always had a soft spot for the underdog. We love to root for the battlers, the people who will stand up for what they believe, even when all the rest are against them.
