“There is no place for economic sabotage dressed up as activism”

Scott Morrison gave a very good speech to the Queensland Resources Council last Friday.

I particularly enjoyed this bit at the 7 minute mark:

I hear a lot about progressivism at the moment. It sounds like a lovely word, you can cuddle up to it, it’ll give you a nice warm glow. I will tell you what it means in hard political reality. Those who claim the title want to tell you where to live, what job you can have, what you can say, and what you can think and tax you more for the privilege of all of those instructions that are directed to you.

Then listen on from about the 16:50 minute mark.

Of course we have heard big talk from the Liberals before and see little meaningful action (apart from harassing the centre-right).

    Yup and right after that threw more money at renewables and nothing at all for clean coal. Talk the talk is easy, walk the talk not so much!

  2. Scott Osmond

    I don’t care what he says. What policies is he advancing? Where is he spending taxpayers money? Which international treaties has his government signed or implemented requirements of? Actions speak louder than words. Actions of Slowmo is that he’s just another leader selling his nation and people down the river of the global-homo elite. Get back to us when he repeals Paris, repeals the ret, makes the unreliable sector comply with the same environmental standards everyone else has to. For laughs next time someone at a gathering starts rabbiting on about ruinals, ask them, how many endangered birds are killed by industrial wind? how much water is wasted cleaning off industrial solar? what is the plan for rehabilitating ruinal sites? are the concrete foundations of wind towers going to be left in place? just how will you deal with the 147 foot turbine blades? landfill or insineration? same for the solar panels. Who will pay for it all? the taxpayer or the firms who built and run the plants. You don’t even need to get agro just ask. You get deer in headlights, from some stammering from others a thoughtful silence. Only the truly stupid continue with the hysterical “we need to do something”.

  3. Zyconoclast

    How many green tape laws/regulation and law fare options has SloMo replealed?

    None?

    Thought so.

    He should return to his peak position of running water at sporting events.

  4. Zyconoclast

    Scott, beat me to it

  5. Turtle of WA

    How much money did he pay the enemy this week?

  6. I just don’t know. Morrison certainly still has a lot of wets in his ranks and powerful enemies. He did a fantastic job defeating Shorten (or did Shorten snatch defeat from the jaws of victory?). It’s always too easy to say what you would do in his shoes, but you’re not in his shoes.

    The L+NP seem to say the right things at the right times but then turn around and do either nothing or the opposite to what they espouse. I regard them as only slightly less traitorous than the Labor/Green scum.

  8. Entropy

    Be used, I might almost suspect ScoMo is a wet too, but when really comes down to it, I believe ScoMo only believes in ScoMo.

  9. egg_

    you’re not in his shoes

    To which I always say, if so, “you’d be him”.

    Nice rhetoric, SloMo, now: stand and deliver!

  10. egg_

    How much money did he pay the enemy this week?

    Precisely – tough rhetoric, but coughs up the ransom money, anyway.

  11. The BigBlueCat

    Hey ScoMo, start with fixing Section 18C of the RDA!

  12. Scott Osmond

    Mak, they aren’t traitorous as they were never on our side. Ever since I’ve been paying attention to politics 1996 onward the LNP have increased the size of government, tightened regulations, intensified the attacks on freedom, put multiculturalism on steroids and have continued surrendering competencies and powers to independent and seemingly unaccountable bodies as well as UN departments. But every time an election rolls around the same old arguments get run out. I told a LNP worker last election that we’re better than the Labor party isn’t enough. It’s like saying being stabbed in the guts is better than a stab in the heart.

  13. Roger

    Morrison is a bloke who’s built his political career on telling different groups of people – initially in the Liberal Party but now the electorate and various interest groups – what they want to hear.

    Keep your expectations low and at least you’ll be pleasantly surprised if he actually achieves anything.

  14. A Lurker

    I wouldn’t trust the ad-man as far as I could throw him.

  15. candy

    PM Morrison’s government to my mind seems more authoritarian than any federal government for a long time.
    A very strange mob.

    In other words, Morrison and the Lieborals believe in nothing but retail politics for power’s sake. At least Albo and the Liars have an ideology (Marxism) which would enslave the proletariat while promising to liberate them.

    The Lieborals seduce their voters by promising them freedom, then throwing them to the wolves — just like the Marxists.

    Fuck off, ScoMo, you fraud.

    Talk about speaking out of both sides of your mouth.

  18. Jo Smyth

    Mark the date on the calendar. If he is still talking and not acting in 6 months time, start the campaign for his removal.

  19. Rafiki

    It is heartening to hear the PM ridiculing ‘progressives’ given that this is the overarching justification for so much ‘leftism’ talk. His analysis is a start, and might be a filip for anti-left campus action. Two words indicate why he faces great difficulty in taking legislative action :Jacquie Lambie.

  20. Squirrel

    That paragraph about “progressivism” is good (and I can’t think why it hasn’t had a lot of attention in the mainstream media…..) but let’s see what this government does about the massive bureaucracy located in Canberra (the epicentre of Australian progressivism) – not just the size and cost, but getting it to do things it doesn’t like and doesn’t approve of and NOT do things which infuriate this government’s supporters.

  21. Crossie

    but when really comes down to it, I believe ScoMo only believes in ScoMo.

    Entropy, he can be as vain and egotistical as he wants but as long as he does the right thing he will get my vote. The same way I view Trump, I’m not interested in his flaws, what he does is far more important.

    Didn’t Democrats excuse Bill Clinton’s peccadillos in the same way? He gave them what they wanted. Our side is full of Gladys Kravitzes.

  22. Dr Fred Lenin

    Career politicians cannot be trusted to Offend the companies who will give tham a lucrative sinecure when they retire from politics to spend more time with their families ,thats a given ,look at keating still taking bribes from the Chinese carr and destroy yah (whatever its mame is ) , prolific Aldi baggers , wonder if they break the centre left liberals anti cash laws .? Its ironic lawtrade politicians being anti cash ,hahaha .

  23. Yes, the government can fight back by executive action, and how Porter deals with the Abbott/Cooper fiasco is a test. But Hanson and/or Lambie can screw their policies if they don’t like executive ation too.

    SloMo is really just another Bull Shitten clone but with a veneer more acceptable to the normies. Scratch away the surface and you’ll find that any of the liblabs all come off the same production line, there’s only a bit of slightly customised software so that plebs think there is a ‘difference’ between products from the two ‘sides’.

  34. jupes

    You are so easily impressed Sinc.

    First Turnbull and now this clown.

  35. Davey Boy

    “I’m going to be the next PM” peanut head said things and acted in ways, without any self-awareness, that were just too weirdshit for too many to handle. SloMo watched this and his AI programming kicked in, he learnt to avoid such behaviour. But what SloMo says and does are still separated by the big fat void (cf. calli) which the parasite class think nobody will notice or care about. And even if the proles do notice, the elite give not one toss as said elite are safely ensconced in their world of building their profile via social media smiley smiley smiley smile all the while. Anyone who has tried to raise any issue of concern with their local polliemuppet will know how little they really care, except when their is a profile-raising opportunity in it somewhere for them.

  36. Rafiki

    Calli – if you have nothing more to say then in total you have said nothing. That verse has some literary quality but what it conveys is obscure. What the PM said needs to seized upon and used as a propaganda tool by those able to confront the fascist greens, student school waggers and their ilk. I am pretty much beyond it now and hope that we see a turn for the better on the campuses.

    Current opinion suggests that Australian society has moved to the left. I am in a blue ribbon area for both state and federal government and our very good state Liberal rep was beaten by a nobody Labor fellow whose name I cannot even remember as he never shows up anywhere. Having met other labormembers that have been put up by the party previously, all were nobodies because they were not expected to win. Labor man won by 165 votes , Next door Will Fowles won the seat and then Josh was given a fright as the number of Green adverts in peoples ‘ front gardens was unbelievable.
    Is this happenning elsewhere . ? It seems to me that Liberals have ignored the creeping socialism in schools , unis and among bureaucrats until now all they can do is appease them .

  38. Rayvic

    Malcolm Turnbull presented an uncalled-for grant of almost $0.5 billion to a GBR activist group.

    Scott Morrison now gives twice that amount for investment in high-cost, unreliable renewables, that will result in higher electricity prices and more blackouts and, consequently, industry disinvestment and job losses.

    Sadly, Morrison suggests that he is a Turnbull clone. Australia will be the poorer for it.

  39. Mark M

    Elitist or deplorable?
    Morrison is an elitist.

    the number of Green adverts in peoples ‘ front gardens was unbelievable.

    It’s happening everywhere in the developed world.

    1. Activists have given up on normal secret ballot and go straight to the (incredibly compliant) media and unaccountable institutions.

    2. They benefit from the usefully idiotic noton that Green = cuddly, nice alternative to traditional politics.

    In that sense, maybe XR are doing us all a favour by revealing what the green tendency in politics is really like. But I suspect we have a long way to go before people wake up.

  41. 132andBush

    Re the “renewables”.

    They’re chucking money at them because they think the discoveries in tech etc that will magically flow from all the OPM are going to set Australia up for the future, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.

    Or so I’ve heard.

  42. Unfortunately, as our parliamentary system is completely different to that the US, you can never get a Trump. You will always have the equivalent of a US Senate, where loyalties often have little to do with the party being represented. Only on rare occasions will you get a party elected in Australia that is mostly of one mind and goals, and works fully together.

  43. Iampeter

    Ha! The Hollowmen!

  45. Iampeter

    His remarks at about 16:50 perfectly demonstrate how there is no understanding of the concept of free speech.
    Protests are not speech and should not be legal. Those who protest and disrupt peoples lives, should be arrested and charged with thousand counts of assault, or something similar. They should then serve the jail time and carry the associate criminal record.
    On the other hand, boycotts are not a free speech issue and don’t require any government intervention.

    Determining which is which, as always, comes down to understanding how rights work. Protests violate rights and so should be made illegal. If people want to hire a hall and carry one, that’s one thing. If they take it to the streets they should be met with total police force.
    But boycotting someone does not violate any rights and so should be perfectly legal.

    If we had even this basic understanding of politics today we would already have laws on the books that would provide for multiple charges to be laid for protesting and Prime Ministers wouldn’t be talking about people boycotting as a potential “threat” to anything. Alas…

  46. JC

    Yep, true imploder. I was as shocked as you when I saw 100% grassroots support for 18c among conservatives.

    You fucking idiot. You trolling, asylum living lunatic. Hand in your iPad to the orderly. Now!

  47. calli

    I have plenty to say Rafiki. If you don’t like my comments, scroll past them. You won’t be alone.

    The reference to the Hollow Men seemed an apt description for Morrison’s latest.

    Of course we have heard big talk from the Liberals before and see little meaningful action (apart from harassing the centre-right).

    Talk is cheap.

  48. Ceres

    Morrison needs to read most of the above comments which succinctly hit the nail on the head. The feelings of most conservatives, who are hugely disillusioned with Slow Mo.

  49. struth

    There is no place for a socialist party dressed up as conservative.

    FMD……he’s a fine one to talk of economic sabotage.

    All comments above (except for Iampoyda) get it clearly.
    He’s a bullshit artist.
    However I add that socialists are always hypocrites and that is born from an aggressive determination not to self assess.
    It’s what makes them look so stupid whenever they decide to open their mouths.
    And here , our socialist UNPM does exactly that.

    Iampoyda again makes moronic statements as he believes if you call yourself a conservative then you is one.

  50. Tintarella di Luna

    Yep they’re all Hollowmen Leaning together. Headpiece (and codpiece) filled with straw. The political class, the media class, the wokedemic and the wokest wealthy elites don’t give a crap about those who don’t happy-clap to the gospel of prosperity – it’s your own fault, look-a-me, how’d I get here, be like me.

    Cf. California, the proverbial canary warning the rest of us where we are heading:

    Huge global wealth in high-tech, finance, trade and academia poured into the coastal corridor, creating a new nobility with unprecedented riches. Unfortunately, the new aristocracy adopted mindsets antithetical to the general welfare of Californians living outside their coastal enclaves. The nobodies have struggled to buy high-priced [houses], pay exorbitant power bills and deal with shoddy infrastructure — all of which resulted from the policies of the distant somebodies.

    Victor Davis Hanson

    What I cannot understand is the ignoring or ignorance of the statements made by Christine Figueres and Ottmar Edenhofer both bigwigs in the UN /IPCC organisation who both stated that climate change is not an environment issue but about redistributing wealth and replacing capitalism with socialism . Gutteres the Portugese Socialist now heading UN trots out the same nonsense.
    Spending billions on unreliable unaffordable energy , as I see it, will only make Aussies poorer , go backwards in living standards and eventually there will be less money to distribute to Third World countries.
    The other point that politicians appear not to know is that the change from the ice age alarm in the 80’s to Warming happenned over a very short time . Perhaps the cold coming with lack of sunspots as predicted by NASA and Ladbrokes betting on it in the UK maybe cold enough to freeze their balls that is if they have any.

  53. Tel

    Strange that we get so much economic sabotage at every level in this country where there’s no place for such things!

    Everything from local government permits, to interference with farmer’s property, to business being afraid to hire because of labour laws, right up to carbon indulgence trading, the RET (which is carbon trading in disguise) and a Reserve Bank hell bent on destroying the Australian currency.

  54. Linden

    Tel, local councils are slowly but surely sabotaging our democratic society. You have only to look at the job advertisements being put out by them and, you will see what they are up to. Positions for gender equity officers, educational officers to make sure all are learning the progressive way of the socialists politics. Very generous salary and conditions. I bet the rate payers have no idea of their local council is really up too.

  55. Rafiki

    Calli – I will continue to read your comments Calli. On this occasion you quoted a verse which had no bearing on the PM’s statement and then said you had nothing more to say. The PM and his Ministers must move cautiously and slowly taking real action against the ‘progressives’ and cannot deal with some issues, such as 18C, the repeal of which would be blocked in the Senate.

  56. struth

    It is heartening to hear the PM ridiculing ‘progressives’ given that this is the overarching justification for so much ‘leftism’ talk. His analysis is a start, and might be a filip for anti-left campus action. Two words indicate why he faces great difficulty in taking legislative action :Jacquie Lambie.

    Then he is not up to the task.

    To win you must first fight.
    He must attack Jackie Lambie, publically.
    He must let his constituents know who is sabotaging , and what they are up to.
    He must make his opponents defend their stances.
    Anything less, for the amount of money these pricks make, is a big fail.

    No excuses.
    No one put a gun to his head to make him give a billion of our dollars to ruinables.
    He’s a dead set piece of shit and his words are meaningless.

  57. Roger

  58. Truth n Justice

    It matters not dear friends. The voters who will really count are currently in training in our schools and universities. In another decade the green left alliance will be unassailable as these mindwashed are turned loose on the electoral process. Following them will be an endless army of leftoid as they continue to be churned out of the education system. The left always play the long game. Witness the ‘harmless’ recognition ion of homosexual marriage that has been used to kick open the door to safe schools, people losing their jobs and being ostracised for not agreeing ect. We are truly done and dusted!

    As I have always said here, it starts in our schools.
    The level of shit we are in is shown by the child abuse our schools are engaging in, they now push out into the public sphere, proud of their brainwashing abuse, their charges crying in the streets, yet not one adult holds to account the adult teachers responsible.
    It’s quite an amazing scenario and shows the lack of responsibility adults expect of other adults toward children.
    This is heathen behaviour and nothing more illustrates the failure of a civilisation then once the children’s welfare is no longer a priority.

    I have seen this for years in other failed socialist controlled communities in the bush…………………….

    So, pretty much like the Soviet education system?

    That turned out well!

  62. Peter

    Morrison’s statements and actions, are not in sync. The comments on this page show that people are watching, and are concerned, that he acts for the left, but pretends he represents the centre, or right. This is the same game Turnbull played.

  63. Tim Neilson

    So, pretty much like the Soviet education system?

    That turned out well!

    Worse. The Soviets at least understood that they needed some people who were numerate and technologically capable.

    The people in charge of our education system don’t dare teach anyone any intellectual technique that involves reasoning – too much of a Pandora’s Box if students emerge with any sort of capacity for analysis. Better stick to penis tucking and social activism.

  64. Cynic of Ayr

    Yeah, yeah, talk, talk, talk.
    Morrisons’s actions are a copy of Turnbull.
    He’s a closet Greenie, and an open Labor-Lite.
    Morrison, when Turnbull, Turnbull’s parasitic son, and the Greens, approve of your policy, what part does not tell you you are an idiot?
    It hasn’t turned out as we all had hoped.
    Another Billion Dollars down the plughole, half of which will go to administering it. More PS jobs. More Fat Cats. More Tax.

  65. Scott Osmond

    Those young coming out of schools are socialist until about 30. Then the bills start needing to be payed, they have some experience outside the institutional education system. They start reading blogs and things. They start watching dank memes online. Sooner or later they get called racist, sexist or homophobe even though they aren’t. They get discriminated against for the crimes of others 50 to 300 years back. Slowly but surely they stop listening and begin to deprogram themselves. Eventually they say “I don’t care”. This was my journey. I never quite swallowed the socialist line but didn’t have the tools or experience to understand why. I’ve seen others go through this. As clown world intensifies and with the internet I’ve seen several youngsters start this deprogramming early. Generation Z I think will show no mercy.

  66. old bloke

    Of course we have heard big talk from the Liberals before and see little meaningful action (apart from harassing the centre-right).

    What has the Liberal – National Party actually done over the past few days?

    1. Given us another $1 Billion debt for more “renewable” energy
    2. Appointed a radical, euro-Australian hating agitator to draft some indigenous “voice” legislation
    3. Commenced threatening non-socialist political identities with prison time under some new draconian laws

    Scott Morrison is worse than his predecessor.

  67. Scott Osmond, Zyconoclast, Truth n Justice, Linden, Ceres, struth, Rayvic, Davey Boy, Megan and all the rest of you are all very spiteful people.

    Look at the wonderful things Lord Morrison has done so quickly regarding:

    Freedom of Speech and Religion;
    Safe Skools;
    Water management and destroyed farms and farmers;
    Affordable electricity generation;
    Free Sex change operations for our warriors;
    Sale of Australian farms and infrastructure;
    French submarines.

    Just stop picking on him and his accomplices OK?

  68. Diogenes

    ook at the wonderful things Lord Morrison has done so quickly regarding:

    Federal Facial Recognition Database (proposed – that’s why he is so keen on FR in schools) able to be shared with all 3 levels of Govt and private agencies
    weakening the Privacy Act to allow more sharing of Govt data with every Tom, Dick and Zhou
    making MyHealth opt-out stead of opt-in

  69. I became a fan of Morrison after hearing him speak on Australian values (when no one cared) years ago at the Sydney Institute. He subsequently surpassed expectations when he achieved what many thought was the unachievable – in stopping the boats trafficking in illegal migrants.

    But our family has been deeply disappointed in his reliance on poor advice from bureaucrats & feeble Nats in respect to the Drought. While the longer term initiatives regarding “drought-proofing” are welcome, the inappropriateness of much of the so-called “immediate” relief is breathtaking. There is a major catastrophe in western drought zones which needs a national emergency response.

    Is he so captive of the Green lobby that he is prepared to see the livestock register fall to historic levels? The $1 billion that inexplicably went to the “Clean Energy” lobby suggests that the extinction of methane producing bovines would suit a lot of people. If you doubt that – look at the sudden appearance of meat substitutes in the butchery section of local supermarkets.

    UN based communists and western hating global socialist bureaucrats.
    Those claiming he is just weak………………………..poppycock.
    If you remember his response to getting out of Paris was absolutely no way, he wouldn’t entertain the idea no matter the confrontation.

    The march through the institutions is bearing fruit all over the Western World ,even though marx was never right in any of hus predictions ,they still venerate his false doctrine ,proves there is more than one born every minute ,the world is full of dangerous lunatics . And we have our share .

    Morrison’s statements and actions, are not in sync. The comments on this page show that people are watching, and are concerned, that he acts for the left, but pretends he represents the centre, or right. This is the same game Turnbull played.

    Pretty close to the truth.
    Immediately after meeting with President Trump, Morrison started being the tough guy – talking about things from a rightist perspective. But we should remember that Morrison is a pillow, who conforms to the imprint of the last person who sat on him.
    The pillow will very quickly fluff out again…

    From my limited research, the Clean Energy Finance Corp can spend money on the groundwork needed to establish nuclear power energy plants. The law banning such power would not prevent this. The government wants the groundwork done, so let’s just see what hsppens.

    His analysis is a start, and might be a filip for anti-left campus action.

    Who gives a flying fvck what they think at the portal to the Clown Universe?

    He’s a lawyer isn’t he?
    Barren of principles, a paid voice?

    those pretending to be green.
    UN based communists and western hating global socialist bureaucrats.

    E.g. those in red tape jerbs in Corporate bureaucracies.

    Cf. California, the proverbial canary warning the rest of us where we are heading:

    Huge global wealth in high-tech, finance, trade and academia poured into the coastal corridor, creating a new nobility with unprecedented riches. Unfortunately, the new aristocracy adopted mindsets antithetical to the general welfare of Californians living outside their coastal enclaves. The nobodies have struggled to buy high-priced [houses], pay exorbitant power bills and deal with shoddy infrastructure — all of which resulted from the policies of the distant somebodies.

    Medieval haves and have nots, IIRC.
    SloMo represents the haves.

    The LNP is what has been called the Controlled Opposition. The job is to make a lot of noise about what conservative policies they will pursue but have no intention of actually following through with. This is to distract us and make us believe that we have a real choice and that our votes matter. This is why they are more aggressive against anybody to the right of them who gives the impression that they mean what they say and will take action.

    Egg, you idiot. My hope is that campus students will in a major way rebel against the stifling (and indeed repressive) forces of progressivism preached by the ‘academics’. That is, the march through the universities will be halted and turned around. Cannot you see the benefits of this? In the recent election, while canvassing for the AC, I ran across anti-Photios young Liberals. Some sign of hope, and, who knows, Morrison might inspire and even lead them.

    How could you be a retired barrister and still be this naive?

    At least your heart is in the right place.
