Picking fights

The ALP and their fellow travellers are picking a lot of fights.

Retirees.

Mortgage brokers.

Taxpayers.

Easter worshippers. Christians.

That is from the Australian Political Debate page on Facebook.

Really? Not smart. Not necessary.

The faithful should be left alone to worship in their manner. The faithful of ALL religions should be left alone.

    Leftists don’t like Christians.
    They tolerate you know who.

  2. The Educator

    Social media or socialist media?

  3. Sinclair Davidson

    They tolerate you know who.

    Indeed. Yet that is a failing of leftists not ‘you know how’. This nonstop criticism of ‘you know how’ is also not smart and unnecessary.

  4. Roger

    Retirees. Mortgage brokers. Taxpayers. Christians.

    Sceptical scientists.

  5. Dr Fred Lenin

    The leftists attack Christians because they know they wont repond violently to criticism like “you know who “ ,cowadice o]it a partif being a lefty ,yiu notice the fascist antifa cowards never pick on “you know who “do they ,gutless cowards ,yelliw streak. A mile wide .

    Mind you, ScoMo invites the media into a fairly individual/personal form of worshipping. It shows him as he is, but really, what does he expect ?

  7. Dorothy

    Quite right Nick
    Can you imagine Tony Abbott asking the press to his mass
    This Pentecostal happy clappy stuff makes my flesh creep

    Why do you assume that ScoMo invited them?

  9. J.H.

    The AGE didn’t have to publish that image….. But they did.
    On a day when Muslim supremacists attack Christians during Easter…. We have the Media and their shills attacking Scott Morrison for his Christian beliefs.

    It would seem the Media and Muslim extremists see eye to eye on something.

    Somewhere there is an AGE sub editor chortling away to itself about how they got the “Nazi” meme into ScoMo’s Easter worship.

    Sinc,

    This nonstop criticism of ‘you know how [i.e. who]’ is also not smart and unnecessary.

    Absolutely. It’s especially irritating when you’re planning a you know what.

    not smart and unnecessary

    So, smart and necessary? Just kidding.

  11. Sinclair Davidson

    Hmmmmm – yes. Missing the Oxford comma.

  12. John Constantine

    Attacking people with car loans taken out to buy petrol/diesel vehicles that will have little second hand value once the State mandates a change to electric.

    Service station owners?.

    The ALP and their fellow travellers are picking a lot of fights.

    It’s just out in the open now.

    The left have always been thieving vindictive scum. But come election time, the party adults usually have to burn up political capital keeping the True Believers gagged and squirming belowdecks. This time around it seems they have a dictator-sized victory firmly sewn up. Not even True Believers run rampant can queer this one for the left – so, rampant they run.

    Everyone’s heard the joke about a communist simply being a socialist who finally gets what she secretly wanted all along. Well, normal Australians are about to learn that the hard way, via a thoroughly proctological experience of the left in power.

    Of course, one can still hope for the most obstructive Senate ever.

  15. Justinian the Great

    Was the footage of happy clapper ScoMo official or just someone with a smart phone? Incidentally why have the Left been so quiet about the terror attacks in Sri Lanka. Four times as many dead Christians (and rising) at the hands of Muslim suicide bombers than Christchurch and nary a tweet or virtue or political posturing? Do they hate christians that much?

  16. A Lurker

    Indeed. Yet that is a failing of leftists not ‘you know how’. This nonstop criticism of ‘you know how’ is also not smart and unnecessary.

    Remind me again of the Easter death toll in Sri Lanka…

  17. Dr Faustus

    Multinationals – who, along with “the big end of town“, are about to fund pretty much every new Labor spending program.

    I imagine Apple, and Google, and Amazon, and Microsoft – and all the foreign majors invested in our energy and resources infrastructure – are just going to sit back and suck it all up. Because Shorten and Bowen are so much smarter and better advised than they are.

  18. hzhousewife

    Psoriasis/diabetes/cardiac sufferers who won’t get a cent of the ‘new’ cancer money?

    This has especially been noticed by all the older folk with long term chronic conditions that are not cancer, esp those dealing with pain, I hear a lot of comments.

  19. jupes

    The faithful of ALL religions should be left alone.

    Yes the faithful ‘you know who’ are just like the faithful of all other faiths right?

    The more pious the more peaceful. If only we had more of the pious version of ‘you know who’.

    What could possibly go wrong?

  20. areff

    The faithful of ALL religions should be left alone.

    Thuggees?

  21. Lee

    Interesting and extremely disturbing juxtaposition.
    Fifty Muslims die in Christchurch at the hands of a terrorist, and “we’re all Muslims” according to a very misguided pollie.
    Three hundred people – many of them Christians – are slaughtered in Muslim terrorist attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka and their religion is ignored; instead they’re “Easter worshippers”, whatever that means.
    Meanwhile, the PM – another Christian – is mocked and derided by cretins for going to a “Nazi church”.
    Needless to say, the same cretins would never ridicule a Muslim for his or her beliefs, or for worshipping in a mosque, and would never ever call them “Nazis”.

    OK. Let us only criticize Mozlems when they slaughter Christians. But that will be pretty much non-stop won’t it?

  24. Robber Baron

    I though Anning went to a Nazi church along with Dutton and Abbott, and now Morrison has joined them? We are literally run by Nazis.

    By the way, why hasn’t Christian Porter changed his name out of respect for the religion of weird beards?

  25. Sinclair Davidson

    This whole business of M murdering C or C murdering M or M has murdered eleventy C compared to C only have murdered eleventy less 10 takes us nowhere.

    Terrorists murdered people.

    Now terrorists claim all sorts of justification for their terrorist ways. We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

  26. Iain Russell

    aref, I’ve often wondered that about the Aztecs. If they hadn’t been conquered by Spain would they still be slaughtering into this day and age.

  27. calli

    We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

    I have to agree with you, Sinc. And the terrorist should be punished as a terrorist. None of this “mentally ill” get-out-of-jail b/s, no mealy mouth excuses.

    However, it doesn’t hurt to examine the driving force behind such acts. “Why?” is not an unreasonable question. What is the motivator? Power? Money? Religious conviction? What makes one member of a particular religion do the unconscionable, and another run into danger to help the victims?

    And tarring all with the same brush is intellectually lazy.

    My years in PNG taught me the horrors of “Payback”. It never ends.

  28. Tim Neilson

    Now terrorists claim all sorts of justification for their terrorist ways. We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

    Suppose, hypothetically, that:
    (a) adherents of religion “I” are about 20-25% of the world’s population;
    (b) adherents of religion “I” commit the overwhelming majority of the world’s terrorist acts, and usually claim to be doing so in the name of religion “I”;
    (c ) the sacred text of religion “I” contains a passage which literally reads as a mandatory instruction from the deity which they’re obliged to obey to all adherents of religion “I” telling them to kill unbelievers.

    Would it be demonstrably irrational to ask whether adherence to religion “I” is more likely to motivate someone to commit terrorist acts than adherence to some other belief systems e.g. utilitarianism?

    Now, Sinc, I know that what I’ve described doesn’t bear even the remotest resemblance to any conceivable reality, so it may be difficult to give a simple yes or no answer…

  29. calli

    The motivation of the NZ terrorist has been suppressed for political reasons. So we can’t even rationally compare that act to SL to spot the similarities and differences.

    Why do we see Christchurch as an anomaly? Do we see it as an anomaly? Are we allowed to see it thus? Are we being corralled by the media into thinking one act is worse than the other? Why?

  30. pete m

    Yeah because no-one needs to be concerned about their population growth, infiltration and then taking over countries – it will be peace and love everywhere:

    peace and love

    The only way to confront this reality is akin to war.

    Europe forced out these aggressors in warlike fashion centuries ago, and will need to do so again or die as a separate culture.

    Who knows what we will do when reaching a certain point.

  31. Sinclair Davidson

    Now, Sinc, I know that what I’ve described doesn’t bear even the remotest resemblance to any conceivable reality, so it may be difficult to give a simple yes or no answer…

    Yeah. Nah.

    I think you’ll find religions J and C – just the pick random letters – to be very similar.

    Killing the ‘other’ and ‘outsiders’ is a fine human tradition that probably suited our ancestors well for millions of years. I would have thought that quaint notions such as ‘the enlightenment’ and ‘liberalism’ would have put paid to those sorts of traditions. Not to mention the ‘western civilisation’ that seems to excite everyone these days.

  32. A Nazi church? That just tells you where we’re at.
    Christians = Nazis, therefore are justifiable targets.
    The Nazi hatred of Christianity is well documented but they weren’t stupid enough to go straight for the jugular but they would have disposed of Christians eventually.
    The State hates competition and the longer-lived Godless Commo Socialist Scum regimes have, at various times, purged Christianity when they felt like it or simply treated them like dirt.

    The people who fought the Nazis were the most God-fearing Christian men, which is why they must be gotten rid of before the Socialist vermin can take power once and for all and enact their evil on the world. They’ve tried before in their various sects and cults but it was always Christianity or Christian countries that stood in their way.

    Socialislam will be the manner in which they do it. Socialism and Iiiizzzzlaaaam share the exact same stumbling block; they would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for them pesky, interfering Christians and their darn Western civilisation.

    Thus the old mates of the Nazis (Commies) will use the other old mates of the Nazis (Mussies) to…errr….kill ‘Nazis’ (i.e. the only people ideologically and physically capable of killing actual Socialist pigs).

    All the Anti-Christians together in one nice big Anti-Christian purge and slaughter.

    Amazing that people can understand the machinations in ‘Game of Thrones’ but still haven’t figured out what is going on in real life, right in front of their noses.

    It all kicked off in NZ a few weeks ago (in case you missed it) when a far-left environmental terrorist started a chain of events that is going to burn like a Parisian cathedral…I mean…blow up like a Sri Lankan church I mean…

    Oh never mind.

  33. Tim Neilson

    I think you’ll find religions J and C – just the pick random letters – to be very similar.

    Are you hypothesising that the sacred texts of hypothetical religions “J” and “C” contain generalised compulsory instructions to slaughter unbelievers? Care to point to any possible real world analogies?

    Or are you hypothesising that statistically the adherents of religions “J” and “C” are (hypothetically) pulling their weight in terrorism?

    Killing the ‘other’ and ‘outsiders’ is a fine human tradition that probably suited our ancestors well for millions of years. I would have thought that quaint notions such as ‘the enlightenment’ and ‘liberalism’ would have put paid to those sorts of traditions. Not to mention the ‘western civilisation’ that seems to excite everyone these days.

    Absolutely. No need to worry about devotees of hypothetical religion “I” parading in the streets demanding the abolition of democracy and liberty. Nor of course demanding the beheading of people who disagree with them, let alone doing it.

  34. thefrollickingmole

    We had a successful, moderate, and deeply devout Mus community in Australia for a long time.

    Malay/Christmas islanders mostly.
    Some very devout, others, not so much.

    What went wrong was allowing the dumping of the “weird beards” at the same time Grasbys “multicult” lurched to life.

    Its the culture behind the religion rather than the religion itself. Of course unfortunately the culture finds more backup in the Koran than some other mainstream religions to “justify” what they do.

    Its a surveillance culture, watching for backsliding and ostracizing “others”.

  35. faceache

    Sinc …… dickhead

  36. Chris M

    Got censored, trying again.

    We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

    Except they can show you clearly from their holy book that that being good Mos and acting as commanded and that their founded was a terrorist – so this approach will only make them feel proud.

    Somewhere there is an AGE sub editor chortling away to itself about how they got the “Nazi” meme into ScoMo’s Easter worship.

    Tgere is a photo of La Gillardine on a patrol boat in Darwin, holding her right hand up, probably in greeting, but it is exactly a Nazi salute.

    Strangely, the MSM made nothing of it at the time. /sarc

    Then don’t go … many Pentecostals and other evangelicals find Catholic and Anglican High Mass creepy too. What’s your point?

    Until such time as we invite people who have no truck with such notions to live among us.

    Then we are just stupid to keep bringing them here when we know the more of them, the more of us will be killed by them. Insane is probably a better word for it.

  40. John Barr

    & the Faithful of all Religions should leave everybody else alone too. Ay. This is where the problem is. All the faithful of their own Religion are not leaving the all the faithful of other Religions alone. One in Particular comes to mind.

  41. rickw

    This whole business of M murdering C or C murdering M or M has murdered eleventy C compared to C only have murdered eleventy less 10 takes us nowhere.

    When did C last murder M? Where is the C doctrine that supports murder? There is a distinction here that you’re doing your best to avoid being honest about.

  42. Seth

    The stupidity pushed on this blog is utterly depraved.

  43. Win

    If the Ten Commandments written by the finger of God in a tablet of stone says “Thou Shalt not kill” and another more modern day religion whose God says smite the heads from the necks of the unbelievers have precedence over the non smiters , and why would the Left and MSM side with the smite the head mob.

  44. EvilElvis

    The faithful of ALL religions should be left alone.

    Yes. Because they’re obviously all the same, just peaceful worshippers. No differences in the culture of their worship at all, let alone progression of the religion.

    This whole business of M murdering C or C murdering M or M has murdered eleventy C compared to C only have murdered eleventy less 10 takes us nowhere.

    Terrorists murdered people.

    Now terrorists claim all sorts of justification for their terrorist ways. We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

    A great response, could have been cut and pasted from one of a billion lefty Facebook comments post latest muesli atrocity. Academics. Libertarians. FMD.

  45. W Hogg

    Now terrorists claim all sorts of justification for their terrorist ways. We should reject all those excuses and say “No. You are just a terrorist”.

    Our best defence is of course our cultured reason. Our tolerance. Our audacious confidence in the fundamental goodness of others.

  46. W Hogg

    The motivation of the NZ terrorist has been suppressed for political reasons.

    Not very well, though. He got out an 80p manifesto about being an eco-terrorist, who supported communism (in the proper Stalinist manner, not like a Bernie-bro soyboi), and decided to take out the group with statistically the highest birthrates to save the planet as well as provoke the US population through attacking the 2A. All fairly boilerplate leftist stuff. Greens have for years openly asserted that birthrates need to dramatically fall for the planet’s sake. They have explicitly incited murder.

  47. rickw

    Our best defence is of course our cultured reason. Our tolerance. Our audacious confidence in the fundamental goodness of others.

    When has this ever worked in the history of the world?
