There are No Excuses for Being Surprised Anymore

Only the naive or the uninitiated assume that sexual licentiousness has no boundaries - the true depths of depravity, deviance, cruelty, and obscenity that can be performed by humans have been thoroughly documented for centuries. There is no point in seeking further proof of such exploits.

The 7th of December 2017 - the Day Australia Lost its Soul

Thinking further on my comments about Jimmy Barnes (Turning Back The ALP, Only Where It’s Safe To Do So, Larry Pickering, 23 Jul, 2015), it is perhaps timely to reflect on the worrying trend that underscores Jason Barnes’ use of the term “racist”. As I implied, the fallacious use of the term ‘racist’ has its roots in fascist stratagem.
