WHY SHORTEN WON'T SACK ME
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.
So Mr Bean is on the communists’ payroll? Big deal! Well, it would be a big deal for any entity other than the Labor Party because for 80 years a right of passage to a Labor safe seat was the obligatory trip to Moscow to spill one’s guts over what an awful democratic direction Australia was travelling in.
Dastyari is a member of the NSW Catholic Right, the most notorious of factions that combined with the Victorian Left’s union power base to give us Bob Carr, Julia Gillard, Bill Shorten, Graham Richardson, Tony Burke and an array of other Labor sub-luminaries and Sydney underworld spivs.
When Pauline Hanson asked Dastyari “Are you a Muslim? Really Sam?”
“Yeah, and I have never hidden it away.” He responded.
Dastyari sucks on a Crownie
After the break-up of the Soviet Union the ALP’s fascination with communism was limited to Cuba and China. China won. So there has been a steady trek of Labor’s up-and-comers, like Dastyari, to Beijing.
Bob Carr (Gillard’s captain’s pick as Foreign Minister in her brief Government, a repayment for organising the NSW Right’s numbers to dump Kevin Rudd in favour of her) is as guilty as Dastyari who sees himself in the same mould as Carr who heads the infamous “Australia-China Institute”.
Carr has set up enduring connections with the Chinese and Dastyari felt quite comfortable that if Carr could be on the China payroll then so too could he.
And if Carr could continue to publicly side with the Chinese over its expansion into the South China Sea so too should he. So he did! Can you imagine little Dastyari’s surprise at the uproar?
“Why the hell are they attacking me when I am only following a long history of Labor siding with Communist countries”, he must have thought. Of course he didn’t think that the interest of Australia was of any significance at all.
Regardless of the China connection, Bill Shorten has no intention of sacking Dastyari, after all it was he (Dastyari) who doctored the vote against Albanese to help give Shorten the leadership. And if Dastyari goes, so too must most of the Labor Party.
The commentariat is demanding that Dastyari give Parliament an explanation as to his apparent treason. But the commentariat already knows of Labor’s history of high treason against Australia and it’s a shame they don’t ask Carr and Dastyari about that book, Australia's Secret War, by Hal Colebatch.
It is painstakingly researched and a fully documented account of Labor treachery.
Quoting from the book, " ... it was a systematic campaign of sabotage that criss-crossed the nation, from Townsville to Fremantle, and cost the lives of countless Australian Diggers and allied soldiers."
The actions of the trade unions included deliberately damaging planes, removing valves from radio transmitters that made them inoperative, which in turn led to an inability to provide safe direction to a squadron of US planes and their crewmen, all of whom died.
Coalminers and munitions factory workers went on strike, prejudicing the war effort, costing lives, all leading to unnecessary loss and increasing the length and cost of the war.
Senator Eric Abetz said: "Australian women were needlessly widowed. Australian children were needlessly left fatherless." He said, “the deliberate acts of union bastardry which led to people being killed and injured, and the war effort being severely compromised, were acts of murder, grievous bodily harm and treason, all of which can be sheeted home to the union movement and all of which have been largely ignored.”
Abetz believes the unions involved, their successors and the ACTU should provide a national apology for prejudicing the nation's war effort, remembering those families who needlessly lost loved ones because of their treasonous activities. Unions acted in a similar fashion during both World wars and in Vietnam.
So why should Dastyari be singled out as a traitor? I mean Bob Carr said that Australia should not run the risk of being caught up in a war against China. “We have gone further than any other like-minded nation, except the US and Japan, in condemning China” he said.
“Why should our position be more hard line than Singapore’s?” He warned that ties should not be “even remotely put at risk by a flamboyant diplomatic gesture aimed at China, in a complex of overlapping maritime territorial disputes”.
After a meeting with top Chinese officials last month, Carr said, “if Australia, as a middle power, were to become more involved in action in the South China Sea with the US, following The Hague’s Permanent Court of Arbitration ruling, it risked ‘getting hurt’”.
Hmmm, so Labor’s Carr warns us not to side with the yanks while speaking in defence of China and warns Australia of “getting hurt” if we complain too much. Golly!
Dastyari’s response seems somewhat less strident... the major difference is that we have no idea how much Carr is being paid. But if the payment amount depends on the extent that Australia is warned to stop criticising China then Carr should be loaded up with enough yuan to turn Mr Bean green with envy.
Oh well, all we know is that the aesthetically challenged Carr and his cosmetically challenged wife certainly fly first class.
