How far beneath contempt can the ALP get?

Almost too sick for words.

Are there decent people associated with the party who are prepared to speak up and condemn this rubbbish? Starting with our resident trolls?

    Can you imagine of the Lib XMas invites contained a comical picture of Julia Gilliard (of the dozens that come to mind)? The screams of “Misogyny” would burst your eardrums!

  2. Poor Old Rafe

    Yes, but beating to death a pinata of John Howard is just fine. Really classy.

  3. OMG! The relentless negativity of AbbottAbbottAbb…. oh, wait.

    Never mind.

  4. Token

    Petty, childish and exactly the pathetic tone that stirs the hate in the heart of the Labor base.

    No surprises the lightweight Coorey peddles it.

  5. davey street

    But Abbott won’t say a thing about it. He’s spooked. Just the usual wet Liberal Howard-like turn the other cheek mentality instead of standing up to that sleazy bastard called McTernan who orchestrates all this arrogant obnoxious nonsense about Abbott. When, oh when, is someone in msm and/or the Liberal party going to point out that McTernan has said Abbott has to be killed – his quote, not mine, on record states “you have to kill your opposition”. WHO IS THIS PERSON CALLED JOHN McTERNAN FROM LONDON ? WHY ARE WE NOT SHOWN WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE AND TOLD WHERE HE LIVES IN CANBERRA ? AFTER ALL HE IS BEING FUNDED BY AUSTRALIAN TAXPAYERS. RECENTLY HE WAS FLOWN TO WASHINGTON BY GILLARD TO ADVISE THE OBAMA RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN PRESUMABLY AGAIN PAID BY AUSTRALIAN TAXPAYERS. IT’S A BLOODY OUTRAGE !!!!

  6. candy

    I guess mcternan will be feted at the Labor function. J.gillard owes her new success to him.

  7. James of the Glens

    We should not be surprised.

    There is a class of persons akin to looters which sprays others’ money around with gay abandon; Labor represents thia class having members who have never created any wealth in their miserable lives but would ape those they have parasitised.

    And will looter Julia be sending her bogan invite to looter Bruce?

  8. A Lurker

    Three words – Abbott Derangement Syndrome.

    It’s really amazing to consider that one man is so capable of doing their heads in. I hope the Liberals keep Abbott as leader just so I can watch all the Lefty heads spin and then explode when he becomes Prime Minister.

  9. entropy

    To be fair,Toke, I think that Coorey was calling the ALP out on it. On the other hand someone might be moonlighting as Coorey, or on the gripping hand it is a sneaky little attempt to pretend how even handed he is by grabbing onto something that at the end of the day is trivia as proof he can criticise the ALP.

  10. Splatacrobat

    Smacks of Pliberserk’s posters that were put up in her office.

    A bunch of low rent wannabe Abbott obsessed thugs

  11. H B Bear

    Even an utter moron like Phabulous Phil couldn’t defend this. Gotta call out the big guns – The Goose, Nanny Roxon and the Leg-over Man for starters.

  12. m0nty

    Without humour, civility cannot flourish. The tendency to label every joke or passing comment we consider to be in poor taste as something more, something sexist, misogynist, or racist is a sign of a New Puritanism taking hold.

    … Beyond Canberra too, many are enforcing the New Puritanism in preposterous circumstances. And ironically, those who speak most about the need for more modern-day civility are the same people discouraging the best solution. We could all laugh a little more. Especially at ourselves.

  13. Token

    Entropy, I would’ve taken it as a joke if Coorey didn’t end with this childish partisan line:

    A Labor staffer returned fire: ‘‘The Coalition’s has to be free otherwise no-one would turn up. They’ve got to bribe staffers with free booze.’’

    It is total war from Labor as it is the only way they can stave off oblivion, don’t be foolish enough to think otherwise.

  14. Anne

    I wouldn’t call it “sick”. I would call it “pathetic”, “childish” and ” typical” of these high school brats at the levers of power!

    What’s with the Coalition invitation? Do they expect guests to break up the furniture? That’s an inside joke of some kind, yeah?

  15. C.L.

    We all know what Julia prefers for Christmas.

    Cash.

    Preferably in a brown paper bag.

  16. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Yep, as above.

    Tasteless, mean-spirited, sexist in intent, and unworthy of fair-minded adults in a democracy. The producers of this vile and nasty piece personal attack at a time of Christian peace and goodwill show that they are nothing but thoughtless, smarmy, snickering adolescents at heart.

    Well, that’s Labor all over, isn’t it?

    Unless some of their number speak out and condemn it, strongly, and soon.

  17. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    ooops … piece of

  18. Brian of Moorabbin

    Looks like mUnty has decided he’s not one of the decent people and has once again displayed his double-standards and hypocrisy.

    We all know just how loud would be his (and SfB and Crapula for that matter) shrill denunciations had it have been a Coalition invite that portrayed Dear Leader or any of the rest of the ALP Ineptocracy in such a manner…

  19. Jim Rose

    every day spent running down Abbott is a day not spent explaining why Labor has done a job deserving re-election. governments should not be always negative.

    Aren’t you supposed to be a troll? The above is left wing strategy neat, excepting the humour, the left have no SOH. The left have three arrows in the quiver, class, gender and race, and they shoot them over and over and over and over….

  21. Winny

    I don’t think it’s sick or unreasonable in any way. I think it’s a lame attempt at humour but fairly innocuous for all that.

    I feel the same way about the “welcome to ceremony” jokes that appear to have caused such outrage. I feel the same about Jones’ “died of shame” comment, although that was a little tasteless.

    I’m not sure when Australia decided to become so easily offended by humour, but I am a little startled to find it has encroached on a libertarian blog. I’m not sure what the right response to this rash of offense taking is, but I’m sure it’s not pointing and saying “they do it too.”

  22. Gab

    It’s not offense, it’s the hypocrisy.

  23. candy

    It’s small bikkies compared to what mcternan/gillard perhaps have planned ahead for Tony Abbott.
    Probably something along the lines of Catholic/priest/p5ado stories where tony abbott’s name can somehow be worked into in any way shape or form. perhaps that’s a bit cynical but.

  24. big dumb fu

    The standard ALP talking point for this, is just relax, laugh, it’s a joke, and anyway it was supposed to be private, no harm done, hey comedians make fun of politicians all the time, humour is Australian, mate, etc. From the party of outrageous outrages such as calling Mr Rabbit a misogynist for an hour in parliament, it’s a bit fucking rich for them to then call for a good chuckle.

  25. John Comnenus

    So the sensitive types at the ABC decide to portray deeply Christian Abbott as a mythical secular creature that destroys the second holiest day in the Christian calendar. These people are disgusting.

  26. John Comnenus

    Sorry that should have been ALP

  27. Rococo Liberal

    I wouldn’t worry about the ALP’s childish pranks; they only serve to show that the ALP is gripped by Tonyphobia. They are frightened of a real man, as their party is full of wimps.

  28. .

    You’re a paid up Liberal member, right RL?

    Make sure they go to town on the ALP in the next election with really, truly, horribly negative advertising.

    It is a matter of the public having a right to be informed.

  29. I am a little startled to find it has encroached on a libertarian blog.

    I’m not. Libertarians are famously devoid of any sense of humour.

  30. Carpe Jugulum

    Libertarians are famously devoid of any sense of humour

    At least they can tell the difference between redundancy and forced redundancy.

  31. Cato the Elder

    I’m not, Numbers. I think you’re hilarious.

    :D

  32. Mick

    I wonder if the ALP party will have a dish into which invitees can throw their keys. The way they have all carried on with each other previously, surely it has crossed their mind before..

  33. Tiny Dancer

    No numbers it’s not a lack of a sense of humour. It’s the surprise when the ALP show their complete lack of insight, lack of sense of irony and overwhelming hypocrisy. schoolkids have a better grip on reality than thise turds. By the way, anytime you are around defending the numbnuts then we’re going alright.

  34. JC

    perhaps the Libs invite card should have this as a pic of the slapper.

  36. mct

    Very amusing link, numbers.

  37. Ellen of Tasmania

    The socialist-athiests accuse the Christian Abbott of being the grinch. That’s funny.

    I wonder how Christmas is being celebrated in other socialist/communist countries this year.

  38. cohenite

    C’mon Rafe, don’t be precious; this is the wittiest thing this mob have done.

    The fact is, criminals are always more interesting than average folk; and this government and the ALP in general are criminals.

    The coalition will continue to be patsies and treated as fools until they stop being victims and start kicking arse and treating the ALP as criminals.

  39. Dr Faustus

    I don’t think it’s sick or unreasonable in any way. I think it’s a lame attempt at humour but fairly innocuous for all that.

    Agree with your post, Winny. It’s human nature to try to ridicule and diminish things, or people we are afraid of. If I were Abbott I’d be delighted with the pictorial evidence that I am doing apparatchik heads in.

  40. cohenite

    Just saw Bishop on Bolt; 3 records of Gillard’s setting up of the slush fund for the crook wilson have gone missing; they were all held in Federal court or equivalent secure locations.

    Think about that; 3 seperate sources of documents to do with Gillard’s past activities have gone missing.

    How fucked is that?

    Bishop was very circumspect; and this is the problem; the documents went missing in WA and QLD, both coalition states and Bishop is the personification of decorum.

    Why the fuck aren’t those states now setting up Royal commissions to examine why evidence of a Federal court status has gone missing.

    This is the sort of thing the coalition should be doing instead of wingeing about a fucking xmas card.

  41. Tal

    Joe! Winston has a bad heart,stop it

  42. Rafe Champion

    What planet are some of you guys living on?

    It is not a lame attempt at humour, it is importing a sick and dishonest political agenda into Christmas festivities which in civilized society are a time of peace, good cheer and good will.

    That this gesture can be shrugged off is a measure of the corruption of the political climate at present under the influence of the toxic MSM and Labor spin.

  43. sdog

    Rafe, it’s stupid and juvenile, but such hyperbole as

    “How far beneath contempt can the ALP get?”

    and

    “Almost too sick for words.”

    strikes me as a bit over the top. If you turn the outrage meter up to 11 for an adolescent stunt like this, what do you have left with which to condemn the fact that the ALP has, for instance, bred &/or enabled a shocking number of child rapists?

    I hate it when the Left starts hyperventilating and choking over relative nothing-burgers; I can hardly do that *and* condone the same thing from my own side.

  44. Poor Old Rafe

    Point taken. I am generally opposed to hyperbowl (sic) and definitely opposed to playing the outrage game. So I went over the line this time. Thanks!

    Sure, if you use your heavy artillery on a silly prank what have you got left for everything else that is killing the country.

    Like the serial disappearance of incriminating documents.

  45. Abu Chowdah

    If I were Abbott I’d be delighted with the pictorial evidence that I am doing apparatchik heads in.

    Bingo. In fact, if I was him I’d frame a copy alongside as many original newspaper cartoons I could find that caricatured the ALP’s beta male terror. Have a wall of fame in his office and get photographed in front of it with a shit eating grin.

  46. Poor Old Rafe

    Yes the trolls can go ahead and laugh their heads off to demonstrate their superior sense of humour.

    Interesting to find that university-controlled research suggests that about 90% of people think they have an above average sense of humour:)

    Notorious neocon Tim Blair demonstrating inferior sense of humour. Other good stuff there about tweeting errors that might hoist a few lefties.

  47. sdog

    Like the serial disappearance of incriminating documents.

    Yes, another good example. You got my point exactly. Ta.

  48. cohenite

    Those missing documents are now from FOUR sources.

    1 Slater and Gordon file missing in Victoria

    2 WA state archives file missing

    3 QLD Federal court file missing

    4 NSW Federal Court file missing.

    This deserves a seperate thread boys.

    This is fucked.

  49. Winston

    I hate it when the Left starts hyperventilating and choking over relative nothing-burgers; I can hardly do that *and* condone the same thing from my own side.

    This is my point too. I hate the confected outrage that the left masquerades as argument. It’s become more and more prominent in the last year or two and I don’t think anyone, left or right, should feel that humour can’t be a part of the debate.

    Lame or bad taste humour warrants nothing more than the observation that it’s lame or bad taste.

    It’s true that the humour from the left seems to be more personalised, but I don’t actually have a problem with that.

  50. candy

    How do Federal Court files go missing?
    Wouldn’t it involve admin/security staff and so on, surely a person can’t just walk in and snitch a file, presuming they even knew where it was kept?

  51. delfino

    Someone commented here a Royal Commission into missing registry files. Bit OTT. No the Registrar in each jurisdiction should be on the carpet and enquiries of his/her staff. I worked in the NSW Federal Court some years back and there was no way I could wander down to the Registry and help myself to a file. I also worked in the Family Court and was able to move more freely in and out of Registry, plus daily handling of files. However, each person who handled the files had to sign on the inside cover of the files and the date signed in and out. All files were locked away in compactors overnight, so as people like cleaners who worked after hours did not have access to these very personal files. All files contain initiating documents, affidavits exhibits etc. and are or supposed to be handled with care. This is the Registry’s responsibility. Let us see, where this all goes.

  52. cohenite

    What you say is true delfino; and I would agree if only ONE source had been compromised, but as I note FOUR sources have been compromised, 2 of which are Federal court branches.

  53. Jannie

    FOUR sources have been compromised, 2 of which are Federal court branches.

    Yup Cohenite, this is getting a bit too complex for them to keep the lid on it, and there is at least one Deep Throat, perhaps a recent AG? The ALP has many honourable men, and not all of Gillard’s colleagues from S&L remember her as young and naive, helping with the filing.

  54. Rafe Champion

    So who is going to be the first to break ranks and throw her under the bus?

    (That is a turn of phrase and not a death threat).

  55. what do you have left with which to condemn the fact that the ALP has, for instance, bred &/or enabled a shocking number of child rapists?

    …and then had the gall to set up an inquiry regarding child rape, whose major target seems to be the religion of which the Opposition Leader is a well-known adherent and former acolyte to its priesthood.
