    A Labor MP has been accused of smearing the reputation of a group of QUT students who were the subject of a failed Human Rights Commission complaint by suggesting any mention of them should be accompanied by reference to an unproven allegation they referred to others using “the n word”.

    Queensland MP Terri Butler was slammed on the ABC’s Q & A program on Monday night during a discussion about the controversial Racial Discrimination Act’s section 18C. Ms Butler clashed with The Australian’s foreign editor Greg Sheridan over her characterisation of the students, who were cleared of wrongdoing when a Federal Circuit Court judge dismissed their racial hatred case earlier this month.

    From the Oz. I’m surprised they would have her back as a guest.

    This is about Four Corners (not Q&A). I couldn’t watch it after 3 minutes so I looked up its message on the ABC site.

    “The Age of Consequences
    By PBS International, Jared P Scott
    Updated March 20, 2017 20:24:00

    The Pentagon insiders with a climate change warning for the world.

    “We are not your traditional environmentalists.” Gen. Gordon Sullivan (Retd), Fmr. Chief of Staff, U.S. Army

    Four Corners brings you the views of distinguished former members of the US military and senior policy makers who warn that climate change is not only real, it’s a threat to global security.

    “I’m here today not only representing my views on security implications of climate change, but on the collective wisdom of 16 admirals and generals.” Rear Admiral David Titley (Retd), U.S. Navy

    They say climate change is impacting on vital resources, migration patterns and conflict zones.

    “Climate change is one of the variables that must be considered when thinking about instability in the world.” Gen. Gordon Sullivan (Retd), Fmr. Chief of Staff, U.S. Army

    Rear Admiral David Titley spent 32 years in the US military. He was the US Navy’s chief oceanographer and led the Navy’s Task Force on Climate Change. He argues climate change must be acknowledged.

    “Our collective bottom line judgement is that climate change is an accelerating risk to our nation’s future.” Rear Admiral David Titley (Retd), U.S. Navy

    The film analyses the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, and the rise of groups like ISIS and how these experts believe climate change is already acting as a catalyst for conflict.

    “This is the heart of the problem in many ways. Climate change arrives in a world that has already been destabilised.” Dr Christian Parenti

    Director Jared P Scott explores how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather and rising sea-levels can act as accelerants of instability.

    “We realised that climate change would be a threat multiplier for instability as people become desperate, because they have extreme weather and the seas are rising, and there are floods in one area and droughts in another, fragile states become more unpredictable.” Sherri Goodman, Fmr. Dept Undersecretary of Defense

    These Pentagon insiders say a failure to tackle climate change, conducting ‘business as usual’, would lead to profound consequences.

    “It’s a very dangerous thing to decide that there is one and only one line of events heading into the future and one and only one best response for dealing with that.” Leon Fuerth, Fmr. National Security Adviser, White House ’93-’01

    The Age of Consequences, from PBS International, directed by Jared P Scott and presented by Sarah Ferguson, goes to air on Monday 20th March at 8.30pm EDT. It is replayed on Tuesday 21st March at 10.00am and Wednesday 22nd at 11pm. It can also be seen on ABC News 24 on Saturday at 8.00pm AEST, and at ABC iview.

    Amazingly the Islamist thinks Trump is a joke.

  59. Turtle of WA

    The over-scripting is out of control on this show.

  60. marcus w

    Has Terri spent a bit of time in the Parliamentary dinning room since last appearance ?

  61. Carpe Jugulum

    The over-scripting is out of control on this show.

    What!, you mean qanda is not spontaneous.

    I’m shocked.

  62. Just stop telling outright porkies, ya leftie eejits! That’s why people don’t trust you any more

  63. Cpt Seahawks

    These lefties have not read breitbart.

  64. “Has Terri spent a bit of time in the Parliamentary dinning room since last appearance ?”

    No Carpe you were right Harlequin beat me to it.

  68. Viva

    No mention of media bias

  69. Carpe Jugulum

    These are the kind of people that you would pretend you are dead to make them leave your house.

  70. Baldrick

    Washington Post and New York Times subscriptions gone through the roof according to Snowcone.

    Which of course has nothing to do with them giving away 6 months free.

  71. custard

    They have completely sidestepped the proper definition of fake news.

    Fancy that!

  72. Turtle of WA

    You’d swear Wardle was a bloke doing a drag act.

  73. I surrender, had to stop watching/listening. It’s not even bad entertainment tonight. I’ll just keep on comment watching, thanks to you brave souls who possess stronger stomachs than I.

  85. Cpt Seahawks

    I’m confused, did Trump win because of Russia or Memes?

  86. Carpe Jugulum

    Memes – funny cat photos

  87. marcus w

    yeah , memes from getup,CMFEU,and ALP are ok , but Breitbart is an echo chamber !!

  88. Carpe Jugulum

    I might go watch porn … at least I know it’s fake news .

    I don’t wish to be unkind but does she/it/he remind anyone else of a breed of dog? With a speech impediment.

  92. Baldrick

    The Islamist Al Jazeera guy talks about echo chambers. Cue their coverage of anything Israel.

  93. Baldrick

    Best question tonight from the IPA guy.

  94. Carpe Jugulum

    Pity about Maxwell getting out so quickly but that often happens if you have to sit around for a long time watching two other people bat. That was always my excuse anyway …

    thanks once again catallaxy files for watching Q&A so that I don’t have to.

  97. Carpe Jugulum

    Oh great the ‘hate speech’ anti muslim’ question.

    Sod.Off.you.Addle.Pated.Buffoon.

  98. Harlequin Decline

    BTW I’m offshore trying to watch this on NordVPN which, to put it politely is [email protected] awful for access to Oz. Any better suggestions?

  99. Baldrick

    Anti-muslim question, which means there’s no question of SSM tonight.

  100. Turtle of WA

    “Another Cronulla” is an excuse for attacking free speech.

  101. Baldrick

    Express VPN is very good.

  102. Carpe Jugulum

    BTW I’m offshore trying to watch this on NordVPN which, to put it politely is [email protected] awful for access to Oz. Any better suggestions?

    periscope, iview or tunein

  103. Harlequin Decline

    Thanks Baldrick. Might ditch this POS ( the VPN that is) and give it a try.

  104. Hydra

    What was the good question?

  105. Harlequin Decline

    Thanks Carpe, will look at those as well.

  106. Baldrick

    Not as cheap as some but they’ve got 2 Sydney and 1 Melbourne servers Harlequin.

  107. custard

    Zed apologised for Cronulla.

    Idiot.

  108. classical_hero

    An echo chamber like the network where everyone agrees with everyone?

  109. Carpe Jugulum

    What was the good question?

    Pineapple – good on Pizza or a crime against nature

  110. classical_hero

    The answer is fantastic, a pizza without pineapple is a travesty.

  111. Baldrick

    As Carpe said earlier about Zed :

    On cue the token conservative rolls over to have his tummy tickled by the folks who hate him.
    Softcock.

  112. Carpe Jugulum

    The answer is fantastic, a pizza without pineapple is a travesty.

    Get behind thee Satan

  113. Baldrick

    I’m quite sure those at TheirABC thought that went well tonight, without one thought of self-awareness and echo chambers.

  114. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok Troops, interruptions came in at 8

    Y’all shit out of luck this week

    Stackja was closest with 15, i was out in the cheap seats with 52.

    Looks like I was too late again. I was going to say 0.5673967547.

  120. classical_hero

    I was thinking going lower, but thought the token Liberal would be interrupted more. Not much of a liberal.

  121. classical_hero

    CJ, heathen. Shame I can’t enjoy them any more.

  122. Trader Perth

    Say what you like about Terri Butler but she has a beautiful ‘bedroom voice’….ohhhhhh babiiiiiii

  123. Spider

    Still watching Q&A in QLD.

    Apparently only right wing loons spread memes.

    WTF.

    99.9% of my Facebook feed is left of centre memes from Get Up, PETA, anti-Palm oil, WWF. Etc.

    I would see a right wing meme once a week.

    The thing is to spread your reading across as many forums as possible. I listen to the ABC. Subscribe to The Australian. Read the Cat. Listen to independent media. Read the Wall Street Journal. Read some Science journals.

  124. stackja

    I fell asleep. Silver spoon again!

  125. Mark M

    Thanks cats.
    I must admit, I saw the first bit, and as Al Jazeera stammered on and received zero interuptions from snowcones, a low interruption count crossed my mind as I drifted off to slee … zzz
