Moral compass?

Greens deputy leader Adam Bandt has the audacity to talk about moral compass.

Where is parliament’s moral compass? A man has been killed while in our care. We should be debating why this happened and how we can stop it happening again, not wasting time in another Liberal/Labor tit-for-tat.

This shows the callous disregard for life. Has Adam Bandt said anything about deaths in custody in Australia? The following chart is from the Australian Institute of Criminology (in deaths per 1000 prisoners). There has always been a positive rate, although it has fallen significantly over the past 20 years.

Bandt is one of those typical hypocrites that uses one death for political purposes, but neglects the 1000s of people who have been saved by a stronger immigration policy. There is no doubt whatsoever that there would be a huge increase in deaths if the Greens’ border protection policy was to be adopted. The misanthropist Bandt doesn’t care about that, in fact he wants the population to fall, he doesn’t care in the least about Berati except as a political tool. The genocidal policies advocated by the Greens have killed hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. Their policies have been tried and failed:

  • encouraging boat people – 1000s die en route to Australia
  • increasing the price of  energy – some people freeze or suffer heat stroke
  • banning pesticides and GMO food – some people starve
  • diverting resources to the climate change industry – some people lack clean water. 3.4 million people a year die from lack of clean water. Every 21 seconds a child dies from a water-related illness.

Does Bandt care? Not at all. He is advocating policies that lead directly to those deaths.

So I don’t listen to his sanctimonious bleating about Manus Island. Bandt and his tribe of Greens are not parasites, they are parasitoid feeding from and ultimately killing their host. Bandt has no moral compass whatsoever. He is the epitome of evil.

    I’ve always said “The Greens would kill your kids if it suited their agenda”.

    Gone a bit easy on Bendt, haven’t you? You let him off for the hundreds of thousands known to die because Obama is using food to make biodiesel – reducing the supply of food and increasing its price.

  3. Bruce of Newcastle

    One of the biggest killers due to Greens policy is the biofuels mandate. This consumes about 44% of all maize grown in the US and as much as half of Europe’s vegetable oil production as biodiesel by 2020. Then there are the vast palm oil plantations in SE Asia and PNG which feed into the same industry, with huge environmental damage that the Greens seem to forget to ever mention.

    These appalling policies raise the cost of food for poor people in Africa and South Asia, leading to malnutrition and death by disease. The death toll will never be known, but it is quite likely in the millions by now.

    It is immoral to burn edible food as vehicular fuel. when to do so is to cause people to starve and die.

  4. Bribiejohn

    Bandt better quickly realise that when he points his finger, three point back at him!

  5. David

    Got to agree with Andrew. The Greens are a malignant tumour on the body politic who would see everything achieved for the advancement of the human condition discarded for the advancement of their weird views. Radical electoral surgery is required – and quickly.

  6. Ant

    Said it before and I’ll say it again.

    I work as a consultant in the building industry.

    If I was EVER to design a structure that knowingly placed the lives of a single person at risk of danger, and that led to that person dying as a direct result of my actions, I would be up on criminal negligence charges and ruined professionally and most likely jailed. And rightly so.

    Rudd and Gillard were warned repeatedly. Yet they ploughed on. Adam Bandt, and the other miscreants in the Greens party, went right along with it. No, in fact that tried to liberalise the circus further to make it even more attractive for asylum sneakers to risk the journey.

    And at least 1,200 people – men, women, children – drowned on the high seas, in the middle of nowhere. A particularly tragic way to die, BTW. Can you imagine the horror that went through their minds as they gasped for air?

    Yet this bastard has the hide to attack the Coalition for stopping it, hoping to reap political capital and fire up his emotionally motivated moronic constituents.

    Where is there justice in this?

    That should have been the headline, Samuel. This lying piece of shit doesn’t even have the moral compass to tell the truth about who and what he really is — an old-style communist using the Greenfilth trojan horse to try to bring down democracy and the capitalist state.

    Anti-Australian vermin.

    Similar; it’s quite a different mindset to those who commit scientific fraud in support of AGW, the Greens’ pet cause.

    Hypocrisy seems to be well entrenched with the greens, accidents happen Senator SHY on the 1000+ drownings, but does this reflect the views of the Melbourne electors put him in?

  10. A Lurker

    I suspect psychopathy is a common personality trait within The Greens – their followers however, are just plain brainwashed. You can only pity their delusions.

    The real evil lies with their immoral masters who use their ‘useful idiot’ bleeding-heart followers as cold-heartedly as a chess-player would move and sacrifice a plastic pawn on the chessboard.

    p.s. I have said before, and it bears repeating here – that all people wanting their names to go on a HoR or Senate ballot sheet should have to go through compulsory personality testing and profiling, and be quizzed with a lie detector, with the results available for public scrutiny. Candidates possessing severe negative personality profiles should be ineligible to stand for Parliament.

  11. candy

    If Adam Bandt was serious about human rights and open borders, they would support flying all the asylum seekers here, for safety’s sake, and keep doing it as long as there were asylum seekers.

    He won’t do that because he would lose his job, it would be that unpopular.
    So he’s just a plain old hypocrite (with a very disrespectful attitude towards Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison).

  12. Cold-Hands

    What do you expect from a marxist? Milne looks as though she’ll be the last enviro-Green leader; the Parliamentary Party looks as though it is being taken over by socialist watermelons.

    Mr Barati had graduated as an architect, but like more than 20 per cent of his countrymen, he had been unable to find work in Iran’s sanction-strapped economy, the brother-in-law said. He had set out for Australia hoping to further his architectural studies.

    I am so outraged by this faux shit that the word “hypocrisy” just doesn’t feel enough. I looked it up to try and find something stronger but looking at the definition it’s definitely the right word. It’s unfortunately a word that has to be used so frequently it is losing it’s impact (kinda like misogyny and c**t) . Hypocrisy fatigue?

    hypocrisy
    hɪˈpɒkrɪsi/
    noun
    the practice of claiming to have higher standards or more noble beliefs than is the case.
    “his target was the hypocrisy of suburban life”
    synonyms: sanctimoniousness, sanctimony, pietism, piousness, affected piety, affected superiority, false virtue, cant, humbug, pretence, posturing, speciousness, empty talk
    antonyms: honesty, sincerity

  19. A Lurker

    Mr Barati had graduated as an architect, but like more than 20 per cent of his countrymen, he had been unable to find work in Iran’s sanction-strapped economy, the brother-in-law said. He had set out for Australia hoping to further his architectural studies.

    Well now, isn’t that interesting. If he had saleable skills, then why didn’t he apply to migrate through proper skilled-entry channels. No wonder he ended up on Manus Island – he was no more a refugee than any other new University graduate trying to find a job and failing to do so.

    Also this other paragraph was enlightening…

    He had informed Australian diplomats and the Iranian foreign ministry that he would pursue any avenues under international law to have his family compensated for Mr Barati’s death.
    ”Whatever the law says is what we are entitled to,” he said. ”Is it justifiable when you get into someone’s house as a refugee and you get killed?”

    Who gets to decide which personality is “negative” ?

    Seems like you are stacking turtles here. Else you have a surprisingly deep trust for the incorruptibility of the psychology industry.

  21. Linden

    Every time I hear or read something from the Greens, I immediately think of George Orwell. 1984 and Animal Farm, how appropriate it all is to the Greens. Bob Browns world government and one order!

  22. A Lurker

    Who gets to decide which personality is “negative” ?

    What personalities are negative? I would have thought that would have been pretty obvious – psychopathy and sociopathy spring immediately to mind, with extreme narcissism coming in as a close third.

    As to ‘who’ gets to decide, well the alternative is not to deny these people eligibility, but to publicise their profiles so a properly informed electorate makes a conscious choice to vote for someone with a brain disfunction – so in the end, it is the electorate who decides.

    As for the incorruptibility of the psychology industry – I’m certain checks and balances could be created so that true results are ascertained.

    However something ought to be done – the Greens, and the succession of deeply flawed Labor leaders like Latham, Rudd, Gillard and the Senior Labor Figure demonstrates that the current system of selection is simply not working.

  23. H E

    Rights to protest, demonstrate and destroy, a computer room, free access to phones, free food and cigarettes, monetary allowances etc. – Manus Island a gulag? No wonder no one wants to go home.

    “Speaking after a memorial service attended by as many as 1500, most of them his fellow Iranian Kurds, Mr Barati’s 44-year-old brother-in-law Taleb Ghanbaria said that Mr Barati was not among the detainees who were protesting at the camp on the evening of February 17.

    Quoting another island detainee, a cousin of Mr Barati who had telephoned him from the centre after the violence had subsided, Mr Ghanbaria said that the two men had been in the centre’s computer room when they heard a commotion”.

    We overnight closed down the live cattle trade because a small number of animals were supposedly mistreated at an Indonesian abattoir only to have hundreds of thousands of animals either starve to death or be shot by their owners. Now there’s a bit of moral relativism.

    I think also it was Elders company that ran an ISO compliant and fully audited abattoirs plant in Indonesia was closed down without any reason at the same time.

    Hypocrisy seems to be well entrenched with the greens, accidents happen Senator SHY on the 1000+ drownings, but does this reflect the views of the Melbourne electors put him in?

    As one of those electors I would love to say “no”, but looking around me I fear that the true answer in well over 50% of them is “yes”. Which is worse than sad.

  28. sabrina

    Samuel – I sometimes wonder (and despair) what sort of people keep on supporting these irrational/impractical mob – the Greens. It would be interesting to inspect their brains for genetic defects.

  29. Tel

    Just going on the SMH article (with all the risk that entails):

    A preliminary report by PNG police found that Mr Barati died after multiple blows to the head, probably from a piece of timber. An autopsy, carried out on Monday, concluded that the blows had caused a blood clot in his brain, according to a Fairfax Media report.

    Thursday’s memorial, held at the Al-Mahdi Mosque in suburban Nabard, was a traditional outlet for grief and anger – much of it directed at Australia.

    Harking back to the Iraq-Iran war of the 1980s, Mr Ghanbaria, a bazaar trader, said: ”Saddam Hussein never treated Iranian prisoners of war the way Australia treated my brother-in-law.”

    Hmmm, they found warehouses full of bones with electric drill marks in them, the remains of Saddam Hussein’s prisoners.

    Besides, unless it turns out to be an Australian government employee who whacked the guy with a twoby, acting under instructions from above (and I very much doubt this is the case) we can’t say that “Australia” treated this man badly. I mean every Australian is under the government’s protection so any murder that happens in our territory is a failure of that protection, however I still tend to think some personal responsibility must be assigned to the murderer himself (unfashionable though that idea might be). We accept that the occasional murder will happen, and we can argue about the best ways to deal with that…

    Let’s compare the murder rate in the Middle East shall we? Start with Christians in Syria.

    I remember watching a program/documentary (can’t remember exactly what) that followed Christopher Monkton around the Copenhagan Conference. He was mobbed by a bunch of loud young things and a sort of corridor debate took place – Monkton explaining his position and the young things trying to land a gotcha.

    The most telling part of the exchange occurred when the young things waved around the Mann hockey stick graph saying but … but … see …. see … we have “evidence”! Monkton dealt with that in his usual fashion and the stunned look on the mumpties faces was priceless.

  32. Ivan Denisovich

    Does Bandt care? Not at all. He is advocating policies that lead directly to those deaths.

    Other Greens’ policies have also exposed their indifference to loss of life:

    Greens party policy demands the closure of the OPAL Lucas Heights nuclear reactor. The facility makes a wide variety of things including radio-medicines that combat cancers including thyroid and breast cancer.

    Medical experts have explained to VEXNEWS that the “half-life” of these radio-medicines is so short that it is not practical to import them. OPAL is the only place in Australia where these drugs are made.

    If Australia’s only nuclear reactor is closed, cancer patients will be deprived of drugs absolutely essential to their survival.

    This is just another example of extreme, ideologically driven, heartless and irresponsible policies of the Greens party, some of which we have reviewed in detail in this election.

    If the Greens party gets a balance of power in the Senate – or even more terrifyingly in the House of Representatives where government is formed – they might well demand their policies on this be implemented. Their leader Bob Brown has openly admitted that he will use the leverage they have in the Parliament to get the policies they want. Their policies might be a joke but the laugh’s on you.

    The Greens party is indeed a cancer on modern politics, slowly eating away at Labor and increasingly Liberal inner-city seats, supported by voters annoyed with “politics” and wanting to send a protest vote.

    Too few Greens voters actually look at what they’re voting for, in detail. They are a party captured by extreme leftists like the unimpressive Adam Bandt, their candidate in Melbourne, a former Marxist with continued and ongoing ties to other left-wing militants like his campaign worker Damien Lawson

  33. Robert O.

    Unfortunately, the Greens have managed to pursue their ideology due to the city voter thinking they are doing something to help the environment whilst enjoying their café lattes. etc. If one goes back to the disastrous fires in Gippsland, just how many lives would have been saved if people had adopted a sensible approach to living in the bush, clean surrounds, periodic fuel reduction, adequate means of defending their property, rather than green by-laws preventing a common sense approach. I had a friend who lived at Ferntree at the back of Mt. Wellington in Hobart; he survived the horrific 1967 fire due to a bit of luck no doubt, his house even had shingle roof, but he had a clean bush garden full of Rhododendrons under pole stand of Mt. ash (Eucalyptus regnans) and a fire hose with a good water supply.

  37. Shelley

    Not sure about the credentials of this author – Wikipedia says he was a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party but it is an interesting article. This is an area I have become very interested in recently (the link between Nazism/Environmentalism).

    From the linked article:

    Picture the scene. At the edge of a forest, German soldiers point their guns at rows of naked people who follow the Jewish religion. Among them are young mothers clutching their babies. The shots echo through the woods and the dead bodies fall into the ground. Down the road, while this is happening, their German army comrades are busy establishing nature walks and bird sanctuaries and planting trees. The Nazis conducted horrific experiments on children (I have seen footage so upsetting it can’t be shown on TV) but at the same time they banned medical experiments on animals. The same Nazi monsters who committed crimes of unimaginable barbarity also advocated vegetarianism, organic agriculture, forest preservation and homeopathic healthcare. How can we possibly explain this? What was the connection between the inhuman brutality of the Nazis and their gushing idealization of ‘Nature’?

    The purpose of exploring Nazi environmentalism is not just to upset the greens. If environmentalism were a curious but peripheral aspect of National Socialism, it would be of no real historical interest. Environmentalists could be forgiven for saying, Ah well, it just goes to show, there’s a little bit of good in the worst of us. But environmentalist ideology was not an accidental, optional-extra to National Socialism. As we shall see, green ideas were at the core of Nazi thinking. The German Volk and Nazi movements marched beneath the banners of ‘Nature’ and the ‘organic’. However, what follows here is not simply a potted history of Nazi environmentalism. It is, at the same time, a brief history of early environmentalism writ large. As will become clear, it is not so easy to draw a line between two types of green thinking.

  38. Splatacrobat

    Every time I hear or read something from the Greens, I immediately think of George Orwell. 1984 and Animal Farm, how appropriate it all is to the Greens. Bob Browns world government and one order!

    I used to play the audio book of Animal Farm to my kids in the car to and from school. We would discuss the various characters in the story and put modern politicians names to each of the characters.
    They didn’t require any prompting to distinguish who the pigs were.

  39. Squirrel

    “….We should be debating why this happened and how we can stop it happening again, not wasting time in another Liberal/Labor tit-for-tat…..”

    That has more than a whiff of product differentiation to it – entirely consistent with the Greens’ practice of referring to the “old parties”.

    Greens party policy demands the closure of the OPAL Lucas Heights nuclear reactor. The facility makes a wide variety of things including radio-medicines that combat cancers including thyroid and breast cancer.

    To be fair it may be possible to produce the required isotopes using an accelerator based neutron source, but that would require a significant capital and operating cost and a comprehensive plan, which so far I’ve not seen from the Greens.

    It would also be hypocritical of them to close Opal in light of their obsession with global warming, since nuclear is the practical answer to abatement of CO2 emissions. I do not accept CO2 to be harmful on the data I see, but to be consistent the Greens should support a nuclear industry in this country. They don’t.

  42. Splatacrobat

    The LNP need to change the voting system to optional preferential voting federally or even better first past the post.

  43. A Lurker

    As we shall see, green ideas were at the core of Nazi thinking.

    It’s the whole nature good, humanity bad mindset. Facebook is littered with Leftist memes expressing that sort of soft, self-loathing ‘proving’ that animals and nature only are innately perfect and moral, whilst the disease that is humanity expresses only innate greed, violence and evil, and ipso facto humanity deserves the wrath that nature dishes out (the whole sentient Gaia thing); and if nature doesn’t oblige, then those who are ‘moral and good’ (the Greens, Socialists, Progressives, Communists) will invent fictional wrath (aka, the planet is cooking – shades of Christian Hellfire) to punish humanity’s evil ways through enforced poverty, and income redistribution via taxation and regulation, back into the pockets of Gaia’s chosen ones.

    …and if given half a chance, they would without a second thought, liquidate those that they deem unsuitable, imperfect, or just wrong.

    Well Carl Williams met a similar end while “under our care” – head caved in with an iron bar. So most definitely the Greens would have to be in favour of closing down all gaols. Has anyone asked Bendt to confirm that? Perhaps Laurie Oakes could refer to the 2010 murder under PM Julie Howard at Philip Island Gaol, after which Tony Abbott666 pressured the Prisons minister Barbara Ramjan during a Congressional hearing.

  54. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    As we shall see, green ideas were at the core of Nazi thinking.

    Yes, Lurker, it was the ‘nature good, humanity bad’ mindset. But with a special twist for the Nazis. They believed they and all ‘pure’ Germans were the apotheosis of ‘nature’, the special few who would maintain only a ‘master race’ to whom ‘nature’ rightfully belonged. Genetic purity and the individual’s pure body were thus conflated, and ritualised with fetishes about behaviour and bodily maintenance, especially re food.

    This belief system certainly came from an original ‘nature’ religion. The origins were clearly atavistic – Odin/Wotan warrior-god Green Man Druidic belief systems resuscitated by the Nazis in a bowdlerised new ‘environmental’ form: unrelated to the tribal forest lives of early Northern Europe warrior cultures, but carrying the imprint of that heritage, gaining its justification from the extended tribal notion of the Germanic racial ‘volk’.

    We see this also in ‘New Age’ thinking, including similar distortions and anachronisms. This same imperative of ‘nature’, expressed via Tim Flannery as ‘Gaia’ (feminists this time ‘reclaiming’ a never-existing female ‘supreme goddess’ culture), informs Deep Green Religion, which contains the same sort of looniness about connecting with the ineffability of things ‘natural’ as the Nazis displayed. Hidden within DGR too is the hatred of the fully human, of humanity in its wonderful variety. Thus only those humans who form part of the Vanguard of Moral Truth are fit to live; they are those noble souls who will depopulate and deindustrialise the world back to Gaia. They will chose The Future, and all must be ‘saved’ by accepting the mantra of ‘sustainability’ and its multitude of sacrifices in the name of The Planet. Those who don’t will deservedly die. Perhaps with assistance.

    Our tenants in Sydney appear to have been Well-Off Greenies. They like this area, Malcolm Turnbull’s voters. I am just chucking out the Earth Choice cleaners they have been using and giving the place a proper clean with good and useful chemicals. The labels on the ‘safe, natural’ product shows that most of its chemicals (yes, they are chemicals) are derived from palm oil.

    Oh, yes, “green” cleaning products. Either they are things you already have at home (vinegar is a very useful cleaning product) or they don’t work very well, meaning you have to buy a lot more of them.

  56. A Lurker

    We see this also in ‘New Age’ thinking, including similar distortions and anachronisms.

    Great post Lizzie, I wonder if the New Agey/Hippy/Greenie types realise that their religion places them just a heartbeat away from their pals in the Nazi party?

    What is that term again? Oh yes… “Useful Idiots”.

    You know what annoys me – Foxtel documentary channels have this endless and weekly parade of documentaries rightly warning us about just how bad the Nazis were; yet there are almost no documentaries with similar cautionary tales about the evils of Communism, or shock horror! the evils of Socialism. Yet when you scratch a Communist/Socialist/Progressive, you find underneath the thin film of reassuring and camouflaging paint something that except for a couple of ideological differences, almost exactly resembles the Nazis (in regards to how they operate).

    You have to wonder if the absence of cautionary tales about the Left is a deliberate thing – by either not wanting to frighten/alert the public by allowing them to join-the-dots; or whether the Left are simply incapable (because of their ideological blindness and stupidity) to join-the-dots in the first place.
