HUNDREDS of New South Wales families are being evacuated from flooded homes. Meanwhile, our political advisors are busy jerking off on MP’s desks.
Government-imposed lockdowns have devastated businesses across the nation and, with Job Keeper ending next week, thousands of Australians do not know how they will pay their bills. Not to worry: our politicians are occupied having sex in the Parliament House prayer room.
The Covid vaccine, which we are told is key to beating the pandemic and to opening up the country, is being rolled out at a snail’s space.
Whatever. Our politicians and journalists are focused on weaponising allegations of rape in order to score cheap political points against ideological opponents.
The old adage “you get the politicians you deserve” has never been more insulting.
And the truism that politics is downstream from culture has never been more depressing.
Violence against women is a real problem in our country, demanding real action. But those who protest most passionately about women’s safety rejected an invitation to discuss solutions with the Prime Minister because it did not provide them with the photo op they were after.
And it’s not like the Prime Minister doesn’t have time to meet with people since he abdicated responsibility for running the country to State Premiers who can’t wait for the next sneeze to give them an excuse for emergency powers and regular television spots.
But the pressing issue right now is women’s rights.
Not the rights of women stuck overseas, unable to return to their own country because of arbitrary border closures.
And certainly not the rights of females in utero who are more likely to be aborted than males. Feminists have banned any negative discussion on abortion because, well, it’s “healthcare” — right?
And not the rights of female athletes whose personal safety, health and livelihood is threatened by the insistence that biological males identifying as “women” should be allowed to participate.
No. Our sports administrators insist we are much too polite to raise any objections.
And certainly not the rights of Indigenous women who are 32 times more likely to be hospitalised as a result of family violence than are non-indigenous women.
That issue will be studiously ignored because our political elites are far too sensitive to make a scene about anything other than Australia Day.
And so here we are – saddled with serious problems being handled by fundamentally unserious people.
Meanwhile, our universities won’t defend free speech because they are afraid of the students.
Our Christian ministers won’t defend Christianity because they are afraid of their increasingly woke congregations.
Our conservative politicians won’t defend conservatism because they are afraid of the ABC and of Twitter, but I repeat myself.
And our young adults won’t defend Western civilisation because they have been taught to be afraid of it and, worse, to hate it.
Other than that, things are going well.
And China says hello.
“I come from a land down under
Where women rage and men blunder
Can you hear can you hear the thunder
You better run, you better take cover.”
