EITHER SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT, CORY
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Equivocation is the enemy of progress and mucking around waiting for the new Right to land on his doorstep only energises Shorten and blows away the same nervous Conservatives that may, one day soon, be asked to form government with a massive new Right movement.
The established Conservative movement has lost its way. It has become indiscernible from the Left as it oscillates and ebbs and flows to where it hopes the popular vote will somehow save it.
But any reasonable student knows it’s too late for the old Conservatives to be saved... the new Right has finally found its voice, and this time it refuses to be silenced ahead of a tsunami of support.
The new Right must not depend on Tony Abbott. He should be given a wide berth as he has a successful record of killing off Right movements that threaten his beloved Liberals. Abbott, if necessary, will have no qualms about joining with Shorten and Turnbull to head off any threat to the two majors.
Pauline Hanson’s PR skills have improved 100 percent from 20 years ago but they are still deficient when it comes to high-end politics and effective use of mainstream and social media.
Bernardi, backed by a professional social media staff, would make the better leader, and that’s where the egos will kick in to threaten what should be a highly influential new Right movement. But even if successful, it still has a long way to go before it can, if ever, claim government in its own right, or even a majority partnership in coalition.
Breakaway political Parties have an appalling record of long-term success in Australia. One Nation has eroded the vote of Liberal and Labor but has barely affected the Green Party which is still seen as a repository for disenchanted Labor voters.
The new Right movement is exemplified in various Parties and groups that should join as one in making it an unassailable political force that mirrors other of the world’s movements to rid the destructive hard-Left Green Socialist putsch of its position in the ruling class, a position it attained behind our backs while we mugs were out shouting beers, chasing sheilas and playing too much golf. But our eyes are now on the prize.
Some “patriot” movements will be keen to join (read infiltrate) but the extreme Right will prove a severe impediment and should not be entertained. Anything further right than Bernardi and Hanson will prove too much of a yummy target for the Left.
There are still those in Parliament who have staked a personal claim to one of the diminishing number of teats hanging from the bloated public service gut, and they will fight to the death for their right to keep on sucking.
The new Right cannot afford a rear guard action while it blueprints a recovery from decades of harmful, corrupt, UN style, political ratbaggery.
If Bernadi is to move, it must be soon
What Cory Bernardi seems determined to achieve will not be easy, and it will take a Solomon to navigate the egos involved, but the time has come and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity could easily be lost, gone in a quagmire of gibberish about personal political entitlement. Cory Bernardi should take the lead and move now!
And he should forget the link he says exists between homosexuality and bestiality.
There is a gaping vacuum for a new Right Party, the settings and finance are in place, mainstream Left media is dying, the ABC and HRC are finished as relics of a bygone era. We have never had three more loathsome leaders than Di Natali, Shorten and Turnbull.
The only obstacle to real political reform is the competing egos that could prevent a new Party making Australia great again.
Get the job done first before establishing factions and fighting for respective ascendancies. Selfdom is the real enemy of effective political change and it must be put aside this time, just for once.
Unfortunately each time I suggest this as a way forward I am met with howls of derision from the principals who say, “We need the advice of a bloody cartoonist like we need a hole in the f...ing head!”
Fair enough, but I’ll keep trying.
