Naughty China, don’t you know you can only get away with demanding prison time for protesters if you’re white?
Why vote for an ecocidal party of proto-fascists when you can vote for a pale imitation?
The public broadcaster continues to uphold the subsections of its own charter which clearly mandate weekly airings of Gerard Henderson’s Coalition stump speeches.
Breathing in is fair enough but if these protesters care so much about climate change, why do they breathe out?
In case all the genocide hadn’t made it clear, a bunch of Aussie larrikins have set about ramming their racism right into the heart of Aboriginal culture.
Apart from improving every single aspect of our lives, what has protest ever done for us?
Asked if conservative political bias has gone too far at the ABC, everyone said “I agree 100%. They don’t do journalism like they used to.”
In fairness to the 18-year old, he probably knows more about ice cream than Hunter Biden knows about energy.
A survey of news articles since the May 18 election provides evidence for all fourteen early warning signs of fascism. This is no hyperbole. Any objective analysis would show the Government is driving Australia down a dark road. We must urgently resist their proto-fascist project and offer a different political vision to engage and inspire the broader community. The alternative does not bear thinking about.
We must offer hope to those hurting in the wake of Saturday’s infuriating result. Alienating the masses and tearing each other apart will get us nowhere.
It may be tempting to draw reactionary lessons from this calamity. These are the lessons of establishment journos and smug politics, and they are lessons we can ill-afford in an age of climate emergency.
From climate crimes to crimes against humanity, from coddling white supremacists to closing Indigenous communities, from attacks on public broadcasters to assaults on media diversity, from cutting funding to schools, hospitals, penalty rates, pensions and community organisations to cutting arms deals with terrorists, from prosecuting whistleblowers to protecting the banks, from its war on civil liberties to its war on the poor, from Islamophobia to homophobia, from rigging the tax system to ruining the NBN, from naked corruption to never-ending corporatism, the fight against extremism compels Australians to give the Coalition an electoral flogging of painful proportions.
A frank assessment of Hawke’s role in tipping the scales in favour of capital is fair enough. Ignoring his many progressive policies is not.
What they really deserve is prosecution for climate crimes.
A mining magnate who steals his party name from the 1930s, takes his slogan from a reality TV President, and rips his advertising budget from 800 of his own workers, can do so with reckless abandon because “there’s no limits”. We must change the system which feeds him.
Rupert Murdoch has been poisoning our democracy for decades. It’s time for a united front to offer an antidote.
Much has been written about the spread of the Murdoch empire’s “cancer on democracy”. What started as a localised malignancy close to a century ago has metastasised and now threatens all the vital organs of democracy in the US, UK, and Australia. Much less has been written about the treatment options for this ravaging sickness. Parts two and three of this series try to redress the balance, starting with framing Rupert Murdoch as the true enemy of the people.
The familiar awfulness of Australian politics is clearly a curse but the familiarity of the revue itself is a mixed blessing.
