    AFLW: More goals, tagging and impressive code hoppers — what we learned from the opening round

    I noticed last week that SBS NITV had a women’s gaelic football match on. I didn’t watch it.

    But you can see where this is going. The ABC will be orgasming in orgasmic ecstasy when the first wymminses “Test Match” in contrived AWFL-Gaelic something or other takes place.

    Wow. Just wow.

    A major figure in Melbourne’s South Sudanese community promised political retribution yesterday against the Liberal Party for its handing of this summer’s African youth crime crisis.

    South Sudanese Community Association spokesman Richard Deng has been the public face of Melbourne’s African community leaders during a month dominated by coverage of robberies, bashing and public brawls allegedly caused by African youth violence.

    Mr Deng told a crowd outside Victoria’s State Library yesterday he would mobilise against politicians he said were playing up the threat of youth crime, including Malcolm Turnbull and Home ­Affairs Minister Peter Dutton.

    “Peter Dutton and Malcolm Turnbull, you need to be deported,” he said at the No Racism: Stop Criminalising Our African Communities rally.

    “We are all Australians … if you do not stop what are you doing, we are going to send you back to where you come from.”

    Mr Deng told The Australian he would continue to “reply” to the Prime Minister and Mr Dutton if they continued to campaign on youth-crime issues but would not say whether he was prepared to campaign formally against the Liberals at the next state and federal elections.

    “They are playing political games and it is not right … we were not prepared for what they said over the summer,” he said.

    “We have to defend ourselves.”

    And the Uniting Church gets into the act. Whoops, Catholic Church sorry.

    A few hours later, a bigger gathering took place at St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral where Archbishop Philip Freier led a “healing service” for Melbourne’s South Sudanese community.

    Archbishop Freier attacked politicians and the media on Thursday for “exaggerating” the youth-crime crisis but his sermon yesterday was more focused on uniting the community and included prayers for victims of youth violence. He said as the victim of an armed robbery, he knew “very well how deep the emotional scars can be after such a traumatic experience”.

    Victoria Police deputy commissioner Andrew Crisp, who said early last month there was not a gang problem, also spoke at the service and said police did not want to lock up young people.

    “We don’t shy away from that commitment to investigating crime and arresting those responsible … but we want to work with churches … we don’t want to lock people up,” he said.

    “We especially don’t want to lock young people up.”

    All the while ensuring that the cost of living is so high that both parents have to work, creating a need for child care centres.

    That drive began seriously under Howard & Costello to increase income tax revenues.

    I don’t think they’d thought through the consequences re child care, but the neo-Marxist Educational Complex were happy to do so for them.

    Howard is the most radical and disastrous PM we’ve ever had…aside from Gillard.

    ABC promoting tonight’s Australian Story about Christine Forster and her “wife”.
    With emphasis on all the human damage caused.

    After periods apart, agonising soul-searching and desperate unhappiness, the two women went home to their families to make not one, but two announcements.

    I can’t even imagine dragging a devout, elderly mother to such a ceremony.

    Sounds like a knotty problem.

    After periods apart, agonising soul-searching and desperate unhappiness…

    The modern notion that happiness rather than virtuous living is life’s goal has wrecked a lot of people’s lives.

    To say that happiness is life’s goal, with all relationships subordinated to it, is incredibly selfish.

    Imagine how much money the turnbullites would have given to the Clinton crime family if they had have won the election as planned?.

    With the Chinese communist party becoming the new colonial power in the Pacific, the way that redfilth Gillard and the transnational looting cartel are being funded with Australian taxdollars to take Emilys list to champion femynys fabian communism in the island nations that vote in the UN seems suicidal.

    Ten years out sees godless gillardians grasping power in small nations, funded by crime families and looting cartels, voting for eternal communism and the downfall of the West on the floor of their UN.

    What a brilliant idea Julie bishop.

    2018 will be an important year as we continue to build on the momentum of the last twelve months. Your generous donation will help us continue to build our movement.

    Floaters on the farm have more momentum than the ACs.

    Well, some of them anyway. Any white yoof who pushes back, however, will feel the impact of a ton of bricks.

    So now the Sudanese blame the people of Australia who point out the problem.

    Piss em off back to their “Shithole”.

    LOL.

    But we really did play in the dirt under the house, hours making roads and mountains and also canals and dams for when the monsoon rains came. I thought I’d be an engineer until I later realised I was no good at advanced maths.

    Who was responsible for inflicting sub-Saharan savages on us in the first place? I recall it was another one of JWH’s enlightened initiatives. I’m surprised they haven’t brought out some Janjaweed boyos for balance and diversity.

    Interesting letter in the Oz this morning:

    Embrace the chaos

    Jordan Peterson (“Boys set up to fail by the system”, 3/2) asks: “Are the universities — particularly the humanities — about to become a girls’ game?”

    Yes, this is already happening. Not only is the content of courses being restricted to acceptable topics and examples for females that might be “triggered”, but worse, the deeper understandings of assessment approaches are being altered to remove the anxiety female students often feel when confronted with problems that they have not been formally taught how to deal with.

    Chaos is a domain that higher education must enter. Many female students resist chaos — they see it as unfair that they have to deal with their own incompetence before they can achieve any kind of mastery (this is not true for nursing — genuine mastery is a requirement). Their fathers never introduced them to stumbling, so they fight tooth and fingernails to bring down male lecturers that take genuine Socratic approaches.

    When female lecturers take over the courses I teach, the first thing they do is to remove the difficult assessments and replace them with step-by-step instructions with quantitative marking rubrics.

    Two marks for your name; two marks for spelling; two marks for word count; ten marks for compliance with style; 30 marks for facts ABC and XYZ. Pretty soon you get 98 per cent for doing what teacher says.

    Male students resist this compliance approach so they do less well in such courses. High achieving males do excellently in chaos-style learning and so do some high achieving females. However, females that have, up until university, been top of compliance classes, often fall flat on their noses when chaos rules. Chaos needs to be eradicated so compliant students (yes, some males like to comply) can succeed. Such is equity.

    It is an indicator of the moral idiocy of the global bugman class that the actual rending of these families is reckoned as a mark of the courage of those that are the cause of this rending.

    “I fell in love with her and I fell hard,” said Christine, who started to realise in her 30s that she was sexually attracted to women.

    We are meant to believe that women that had been sexually active with men into their 30s suddenly found out they were gay. Dear oh dear.

    I don’t find this hard to believe, Dover. I know women who are in normal marriages and have had children more from conformity than desire. And men too, for that matter. Sex isn’t important for such people. Show them a different way to feel they are following socially acceptable rules and they could flip. Morality for them is all about complying with what the neighbours think. Change the neighbours and they change too.

    Arky #2628331: “We played in asbestos waste.”
    You must have been reading Warren Mundine’s biography and the history of his family. Interesting book, at least you can say it’s upfront and he says what he thinks, no bullshit. The other side to that is you get a very narrow point of view, but that’s kind of what you expect with a autobiography… arguably, that’s the whole purpose of it.
