It's OK to be White and other dogwhistles - the Australian politics thread


#143

The defence of Pell by the usual suspects has been absolutely wtf. I mean when Ray Hadley is a voice of reason you know you’re off the planet.


#144

Too bad the majority of MSM in Australia is conservative. I would love nothing more than John Howard to be grilled about his endorsement of George Pell at every single public gathering of his in the run-up to the election because you know the Liberals will use him as much as possible.


#145

John Howard has form for this as well, one of his appointments for Governor General had to resign as they was implicated in covering up for Priests who sexually assaulted children.


#146

Not sure where else to put this but Pell got six years.


#147

Excellent news.


#148

I’ll wait until the appeal to believe it, in the meantime hopefully some cell doors get left unlocked.


#149

3 years 10 months effectively


#150

I don’t know if I’m comfortable with “justice” as meted out by the kind of characters you get in prison, where the most violent thugs get to play society’s avenger.


#151

You’d think the whole concept of not going around shooting people would be a pretty simple maxim to follow.


#152

Also, the concept of not having instruments of death out there in society available for the next nutjob to use with which to impose his superior cultural values, seems solid to me.


#153

Don’t blame the AFP for our exporting of terror, they were busy monitoring Hakeem.


#154

Fraser annings thoughts on the Christchurch shootings


#155

Best bit is the last paragraph which basically proclaims “Violent religions are bad. We are a violent religion.”


#156

Meanwhile we’ll have Hanson and Latham back on Sunrise next week, plus Milo and co are back here soon, spruiking and grifting on the back of their white supremacist BS.
Nazi Punks Fuck Off


#157

They’ll probably start sticking that evil cunt Anning on.


#158

Fuck me dead. What a fucking piece of literal shit. Typical “look what you made me do!” garbage. Fucking scum.


#159

What a fucking piece of shit. It’s embarrassing and shameful that those types of views exist at all, let alone in our country and in our fucking parliament. What a cunt.


#160

I’m moving between sad that this is happened and angry that it’s been allowed to foment on our watch. Fuck that shit and fuck the pricks who put out the rhetoric that enables it.


#161

On the basis that a particular person I know retweeted a Rita Panahi tweet that suggests that Pewdiepie isn’t an evil person …

Can I assume that this Pewdiepie is another member of the incel red bill, poor little white boy, ironic altright nazis that need to go to the room of mirrors for a good long hard look at themselves?


#162

Wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire, as that would defeat the purpose of setting him on fire in the first place…
