    Meanwhile, the truly poor indigenous folk are left to fester in squalor because we don’t want to appear to be “racist” by judging their lifestyle.

    Worse than that. They are hyped up by activists to believe that nothing is their fault, including their inability to pick up the rubbish around them or get off the drink, drugs and despair cycle. People with a victim mentality can’t make the first step themselves towards self-improvement.

    Personally, I feel that sharing an occasional woe with like-minded others is OK here.

    Personally, I feel that anyone can say anything they like anytime they want to. If others don’t like it they can scroll past or complain. Complaints need to be thought about but much depends on who makes them.

    Funny how quiet its been until now.

    Everyone knows, no-one says, take the shut up money and stay quiet..

    The thing that does concern me is the conflating of being propositioned/having the hard word dropped on you, with actual sexual assaults.
    One is legal (unless its a work situation), the other is a criminal matter.

    Hollywood actors speak of ‘rampant’ problem of male abusers targeting men
    Speaking out in the wake of an allegation of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey, male actors say abuse against boys and young men is ‘taboo’ but ‘pervasive’

    Hollywood has a “rampant” and “pervasive” problem of men sexually abusing boys and young men, according to actors and lawyers who are speaking up about misconduct and harassment in the wake of an allegation against actor Kevin Spacey.

    “It’s a very taboo subject,” said Alex Winter, an actor and director who said he was sexually abused as a pre-teen child actor. “I don’t know of any boys in any pocket of the entertainment industry that do not encounter some form of predatory behavior. … It’s really not a safe environment.”

    And still a lot of people being covered up for…

    Back when I was a spawnling I had a chip on my shoulder about the hand life had dealt me, in retrospect I used that chip to excuse some shitty behavior which is quite frankly embarrassing to recall.
    Teaching people to wallow in victimhood, even to the extent of celebrating “victims” has been an awful thing which has emerged in the last 15 or so years.
    I used to be people who overcame shitty stuff celebrated, now its the squalor itself.
    You only have to look at testesplatter posts, hes compulsively celebrates the worst aspects of Aboriginal culture as “genuine” and undoubtedly thinks any successful (outside of grievance politics) Aboriginal is a “coconut”.

    I dont think so. tests has a couple of modes; troll and thoughtful troll. Not stupid but.

    It’s inevitable that the msm will move on to the next big thing, they always have, they are here to make a profit after all.

    I’s amusing that someone who sources a substantial chunk of what they post from social media fails to recognize the role social media plays in keeping stories alive, unfortunately social media is even more a source of misinformation as the MSM, and it does the same thing, runs with something for a while and then moves on, but if nothing new to add emerges then that is what happens.

    I’ll keep saying it though, post as much crap as you like but if I think it is crap, I’ll say so.

    Teaching people to wallow in victimhood, even to the extent of celebrating “victims” has been an awful thing which has emerged in the last 15 or so years.

    As Tim Blair famously pointed out, swivel-eyed eco-loon Bill McKibben desperately sought a cause, any cause, that would allow him to declare himself ‘A Victim’ back in the 80s.

    No victimhood, no status in a World of Victim Poker. No money and no power either. Ka-ching $$.

    Yes, that too.

    The exploitation of these people by activists is truly despicable.

    As I said, Marxist cultural subversives of whatever stripe do not regard people as individuals but as cyphers.

    The terminus of this attitude is snuffing out individual human lives – sometimes in the millions – in service of the cause.

    From behind The Paywallian:

    It doesn’t get much dirtier: Pyne plots against Liberals

    The Australian has been told that on Saturday, June 22, 2013, Pyne, the boss of the left faction of the Liberal Party in South Australia, rang Peter Gandolfi, a mayor in the South Australian electorate of Barker, and asked him to run as an independent against Tony Pasin. Pasin was the Liberal candidate pre­selected in that seat in March the previous year.

    It doesn’t get much dirtier than asking someone to run as an independent to win a federal seat at the expense of your own party because the preselected Liberal candidate is a conservative. Pyne was then leader of opposition business, apparently loyal to securing government for Tony Abbott in the upcoming federal election.

    Pyne told The Australian yesterday that “it’s not true”. Yet Pyne’s suggestion to Gandolfi has been reported to The Australian by a few sources who also say that Gandolfi said “no thanks” and that Pasin, who won the seat, heard about Pyne’s brazen plot earlier this year.

    Let’s not mince words. Just as the Liberal base is fracturing, looking elsewhere for core liberal values, Pyne’s actions demonstrate that power is more important to him than principles or the party.

    Apart from hack spear-carriers, it is a wonder if anyone would actually be a branch member in this viper’s electorate.

    Is that not grounds for expulsion?

    FBI Bombshell: Far-Left U.S. Radicals Colluding With ISIS

    From Rolling Stone back in February:

    On the front lines of Syria with the young American radicals fighting ISIS

    Different support group – the Marxist YPG ( fighting ISIS at the time ).

    Same end point – radicals from the West forging contacts and networks and gaining access to skills and weapons. The next Western terrorists will get their graduation forged from the Forever War in the MENA.

  16. DrBeauGan

    When a crook steals an old lady’s handbag and removes the cash before throwing the bag in a bin, he doesn’t see himself as an arsehole, he thinks he’s been smart. Likewise Pyne. If he’d got away with it, he’d have congratulated himself on his cleverness. That’s the kind of shit we have in charge of us.

    incidentally the attemped fakenews upthread is noted.

    Why would first responders kill Paddock by faking a suicide unless they were part of a monstrous conspiracy that started long before the event.

    To what end, Trump did it, Hilary did it, Anitfa/islam did it?

    If some political change was supposed to come of this killing spree it seems to have mightily misfired, other than keeping the tinfoil hat brigade occupied

    I suppose you think Martin Bryant wasn’t responsible for Port Arthur either.

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal broke the story: The police firearm went off inside the suite sometime after officers made entry, the sheriff said. But the round or rounds were not fired in the same room where gunman Stephen Paddock was found dead with what has been described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    Hanging these buggers from lamp-posts is too good for them.

    Struth, Ayers Rock isn’t the only place that looks like a prison, then.
    Many small rural airports are taking on the same aspect. I call Toowoomba Airport “Stalag Luft 17” nowadays. I had to see someone there a couple of years ago and the “security upgrades” had been done since my last visit. I asked the person I was seeing what he and his companions were in for.
    25 years ago there was a nice little picnic table near the Avgas bowser where parents would bring children to look at the aeroplanes and talk to pilots across the fence and even sometimes a sprog would get to sit in an aircraft for a couple of minutes. Three meter fence with razor wire on top now and the view is blocked.
    We are going to have trouble finding pilots in the younger generation.
    I blame the middle eastern goat humpers.

    I predict the Hollywood witch hunt will now go quiet as it appears that there are significant numbers of men and boys who are also victims and that just won’t fit with the original intention/narrative of the #metoo.
