Lefties eating each other: Comedy edition

David Penberthy is always worth reading – a lefty who is slowly being mugged by reality. Today he comments on the politics of the current bush fires.

In 2019 a natural disaster is a chance to share damning CSIRO data on Twitter about world climate trends to prove that Scott Morrison has got blood on his hands.

In 2019, a natural disaster is a chance to share your view that it’s the Greens who are basically murderers because they oppose land clearing – with the added ironic suggestion that that some of their supporters may have actually died as a result of the policies they support.

What a disgrace this past few days has been. …

In less than a decade we have got to a point where the starting point for many, at the point the fires start, is to set up the deck chairs, chill the sauv blanc, and settle in for an afternoon of online ranting about who’s to blame.

Okay – so he starts off with the “a pox on all your houses” approach. A moderate wishy washy but sensible bourgeois approach to doing things.  But then:

Barnaby aside, it’s the Greens who have taken podium honours for outrageousness. The thing that struck me most about their posturing is how utterly useless and remote they are from the real lives of those Australians who have been fighting to survive.

Bandt is the most soft-handed waste of space you could imagine. There’s blokes you would ring if you were in a scrape, and then there’s Adam Bandt, the polar opposite of the King Gee guy, whom if you rang to lend a hand would be over in a jiffy, to make you some yoghurt.

This dweeby Melbourne academic spent much of last weekend revving up his base with accusations of bloodshed towards the Prime Minister. Not since the actor Sean Penn paddled around New Orleans in circles in a row boat after Hurricane Katrina has one progressive done so little to help so many.

That’s awesome.  Harsh. Fair. Funny.

Here Penbo is building up into what must be one of the dumbest things I have ever seen in Australian national politics.

The Greens’ posturing plunged to a nadir when key members of their Senate leadership chose to hold a press conference with the domestic violence campaigner Sherele Moody.

While I am reluctant to denounce Moody in a unilateral sense, as she is doing valuable work in mapping the scourge of domestic violence and its almost uniformly female and child victims, she had an absolute shocker this week where she misrepresented the work of an academic to state incorrectly there was evidence that male firefighters were more likely to bash their partners after bushfires. It was a terrible error, especially when you consider there are 3000 men (and women) across Queensland and NSW who still hadn’t even made it home yet from volunteering to fight the fires.

What were they thinking?  I’ve seen a lot of criticism this week of Tracey Spicer  – who admittedly stuffed up  – but to go out accusing fireys of wholesale domestic violence while the fires are still burning is beyond being astonishingly stupid.

    What were they thinking?

    Simple:

    Greens are misanthropes.

    Whatever they say or do requires no further explanation.

  2. …is beyond being astonishingly stupid.

    Par for the course when it comes to the Left, especially the Greens and SJWs. This is how their minds actually work. If you can call it working.

  3. I waiting for an AU gangreen to say: “Grün uber alles”

  4. Dr Faustus

    The Advertiser piece linked above notes that Greens Senator, Larissa Waters, stood beside Mx Moody as she explained to the nation that fireys are enthusiastic wife beaters.

    Having deliberately lit that particular fire, the putrid Waters promptly fled:

    The Greens distanced itself from the claims by Moody.

    “We absolutely distance ourselves from the statement made by Sherele Moody that it is firefighters doing it. She does not speak for us,” Senator Waters later told 7.

    Quite the most awful politicians in Australia.

    Even handed? I don’t think so, it’s a false equivalence.
    There is not even the remotest causal link between whatever Scott Morrison’s views are on world climate trends — or even the world climate trends themselves — and the bush fires.
    On the other hand there is abundant evidence here, in California and elsewhere that a major factor in the extent and intensity of fires started by lightning or humans is the neglect of proper forest management as a result of ‘green’ policies at state and local government levels.

  11. Chris M

    domestic violence and its almost uniformly female…victims

    What lies.

  12. John Constantine

    The chick that said firemen are wifebeaters may have been like a lot of lefty activist wymynsys i have known, enraged by her jealousy and envy over the attention firefighters get, when her own progressive work exhausts and stresses her until she is consumed by anxiety. When her work is just so important but nobody makes a fuss about it.

    The take home message is the left will now spend whatever it takes to fundementally change the demographics and culture of firefighting until it is run by querty christine nixons and staffed by unionised demographically correct public service taxeaters.

    Vikpol will look like the klu klux klan compared to the plans the left have for the fire industry.

    Here also from Mr. Penberthy The Advertiser October 10th 2019:
    “CLIMATE DENYING CULTISTS CRAZIER THREAT THAN DANCING
    People who believe in climate change are better educated than those who don’t, which is why climate denying cultists like to pretend the dreadlocked protesters are the insane ones, writes David Penberthy.”
    It was behind a paywall, so did not get to read any more of his ravings.

  16. pbw

    Chris M,
    Absolutely.

    as she is doing valuable work in mapping the scourge of domestic violence and its almost uniformly female and child victims

    Valuable for whom? If this is an accurate characterisation of her “work,” she is a systematic liar and man-hating feminist fanatic.

    If any Cats are still inclined to believe this unspeakable lie, you owe it to yourselves and to men generally to educate yourself.

    You can start with Bettina Arndt and the Mens Rights Agency, and much of the work of Augusto Zimmermann. Pauline Hanson could also tell you a thing or two.

  17. Tintarella di Luna

    Very entertaining post Professor Doomlord Sir.

  18. Dr Fred Lenin

    So its climate change causing the biggest fires ever ? Not the comunist globalist greens destroying the timber industry ,locking up mational parks by blocking tracks , refusing to allow cool burning of litter and kindling on the forest floor , aided by the union communists trying to force volunteers to become unionised . Nothing to do with that ?
    The climate scam must be maintained there is too much money involved for the carpethaggers . Mr soros and his gang must be obeyed .

  19. Ellie

    I started off as a man eating feminist. Had men for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not a lot has changed.

    … the scourge of domestic violence and its almost uniformly female and child victims …

    A flat-out lie there.

    I forget the exact proportion but at least around a third of all victims of domestic violence in Australia are adult males.

    But you’ll never hear that from misandrists and most lefties.

  21. Some History

    As far as the Obnoxious Meter is concerned, GangGreen is typically, consistently in the “red zone”. But every now and then GangGreen outdo even themselves for the extent of crap and inflammatory twaddle that actually breaks the Obnoxious Meter. This past week has been one of those times, beginning with Alan Bandt-It scolding SloMo for not already having fixed the global climate “crisis”. Then we had to endure SteeleSide in a turbo-obnoxious rant about climate “crisis” deniers being the equivalent of arsonists. At this point we could have said, Alan… Jordo, you’ve gone off the deep end, you’ve flipped into the Twilight Zone. OK, you’ve broken the Obnoxious Meter. Let it go, guys. But this wasn’t enough. There was even more inflammatory crap to come.

    Cue Lawanda Haters with some nitwit [falsely] claiming that, having battled fires, firies were prone to beating up their partners when they got home. This past week has set a new low – and that’s saying something – for where GangGreen will go.

    There’s blokes you would ring if you were in a scrape, and then there’s Adam Bandt

    Seriously, what would you call this guy over to help with? Maybe to make sure that the herb jars in the rack are in alphabetical order?

    For three weeks now, I’ve been part of the small team feeding up to 400 firies here in Glen Innes, nthrn NSW. Having talked to a few of them as well as some police rescue blokes, and witnessed the military-style operation, I have an even higher level of admiration for the volunteers, some of whom have come from WA! I sat in the mess tent this morning grabbing a 10 minute breakfast and the TV in there was tuned to Insiders and lo and behold, there was activist Fran Kelly interviewing that turd Adam Bandt. I nearly vomited. GanGreen scum like him and Steely-John, or whatever it calls itself, make my blood boil. They have no bloody idea and are the worst kind of politician that seek any opportunity to make outrageous claims – lies – to push their barrow about CO2. If they themselves were on fire, I wouldn’t urinate on them to put them out.

    End of rant

    The Students’ Association of the University of Adelaide (SAUA) was a student representative body that existed at the University of Adelaide from 1973 until 2007.[1] It was one of a number of student organisations that was affiliated to and funded by the Adelaide University Union through the government sanctioned ‘Union Fee’. Prior to 1973, an SRC had represented student interests at the University.[2] Former Presidents of the SRC include John Bannon, Gordon Bilney and Julia Gillard.

    The SAUA had representative members on many of the University’s committees, gave comment in the media and made submissions to government inquiries about issues that affected students and young people in general.[3] It also regularly ran events and awareness campaigns.

    The SAUA held annual elections to elect students to its various office-bearer positions as well as positions on the governing council. Notable past Presidents include Natasha Stott Despoja, Sarah Hanson-Young, Stephen Mullighan and Christopher Pyne as Vice-President. Other notable past members include Anne McEwen, Andrew Southcott, Peter Malinauskas, David Penberthy and Annabel Crabb.

    Due to the introduction of voluntary student unionism by the Howard government, the Adelaide University Union underwent a significant restructure and the SAUA was replaced by an SRC in 2007.[4]

    All quite interbred, oh there’s pooncy Pyne, another commo.

    I’m not a great Writer Cardimona, but I wrote this today

    G’day Outsiders.
    Can I congratulate you on an excellent show, and a very needed and important show, in these times.
    I’m fast falling madly in love with Rita and melt when she pouts at the camera!
    Right wing women are so attractive, are they not?
    Anyway I digress!
    As a supporter of your show from the outset, I wish to now contribute my thoughts regarding show content.

    We on the right tend to be reactionary.
    The left attacks, or does something insane, and then we react.
    It’s defensive action and not enough.
    We also easily tire of being told what we already know.
    The left are treacherous nutters.
    For the longevity of the show I personally would like to suggest putting it all together for people and playing the Alinsky game back at the left.
    Exposing the system, or as Donald Trump (peace be upon him) might say, the swamp.
    Eg.
    Many right wing , ordinary Australians do not know who Antonio Guterres is, his history and anti -western activism.
    You know you’ve got a couple of show’s worth of stuff just to expose the UN and it’s corruption.
    No good saying to people we should pull out of Paris, without making sure people understand what the UN is these days.
    George Soros history and how and who his money flows to.
    They haven’t put together the Success of China comes on the back of the Global Socialist UN , shackling the west with the Climate Change Hoax, nor UN agendas into education and councils etc etc etc etc.
    I’d personally like to see education bureaucrats singled out for their parts in what obviously is child abuse, and the brainwashing of our future generations into obedient little socialists.

    I want to see the show continue and really become a force for good by exposing the trash behind the scenes.
    It would be interesting TV and never grow old.

    Just a suggestion, but may I again thank you for your great show, and to you three especially, for your individual integrity and bravery.
    (I led a truck convoy against the Gillard Government, and have never been silenced by the left, and have some idea of what you are up against)

    Cheers

    Here also from Mr. Penberthy The Advertiser October 10th 2019:
    “CLIMATE DENYING CULTISTS CRAZIER THREAT THAN DANCING

    Here you go:
    David Penberthy: Scientifically bereft climate denying cultists are a bigger risk to Australia than Extinction Rebellion protesters
    People who believe in climate change are better educated than those who don’t, which is why climate denying cultists like to pretend the dreadlocked protesters are the insane ones, writes David Penberthy.
    Here’s a cheery question for a Friday morning: Is the world going to come to an end as a result of climate change?

    The world, at least as we know it, would come to an end sooner than would be the case if the more radical prescriptions of Extinction Rebellion were adopted as government policy.

    Air travel, motor cars, mining, agriculture, factories — even farting cows — would all be in the crosshairs to ensure the planet reaches net zero emissions by 2025.

    But here’s the thing — the world will definitely come to an end if the scientifically bereft views of climate-change sceptics are allowed to dominate or infect public policy.

    Over the past week, the rattier members of Extinction Rebellion have created a target-rich environment for those who would ridicule climate-change adherents as a bunch of apocalyptic nut-jobs.
    Certainly, one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while is that English bloke who chained himself to a hearse in London and, as the police were trying to untether him and whack him into a paddy wagon, started weeping uncontrollably while holding a photo of his two toddlers, saying he was just trying to save the planet because he loved his kids.

    Blokes like this — and agitated youngsters such as the hysterical Greta Thunberg — help create a lazy perception that all this protesting is nothing more than the public workings of an obsessive cult.

    It is the other cult that interests me. It is a cult in the true sense of the word, in that it has absolutely nothing to do with science, indeed is openly hostile and derisive towards science.

    This cult has everything to do with a gaggle of self-styled iconoclasts cherrypicking or ignoring research to suit its own agenda. That agenda is framed around doing absolutely nothing about the reality of climate change.

  45. Beertruk

    And amid the Nutbush dancing in the middle of intersections and the excruciating street theatre at “Die-Ins” in our city malls, I am still left with one question: Who is more ignorant — the bloke dangling from a harness under Brisbane’s Story bridge or the newspaper columnist, conservative politician or self-centred industrialist, who, with no scientific basis at all, would recklessly assert that this whole climate change thing is nonsense?

    If you have even a passing interest in and knowledge of mainstream science, you would know that sea levels are rising more than they have been historically, ice is melting faster than it has been, that the oceans are getting warmer.

    Yet we have a bunch of people, barely any with a skerrick of scientific training, who arrogantly posture as knowing more than the CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology and David Attenborough combined.

    It suits them to target the crackpots lying on the streets because the overwhelming majority of people who believe in climate change are smart and well-educated and believe in listening to those who know best.

    He might have ended up being a dud prime minister, but Malcolm Turnbull was 100 per cent correct this week when he talked of the corrosive influence of Tony Abbott on environment policy in federal politics this week.

    I would throw the Greens into the mix there, too, as we are now approaching the 10-year anniversary of a great failed moment in public policy, the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, which would have passed if not for the pigheadedness of the Greens in arguing it didn’t go far enough. We could have put a price on carbon; instead, a decade on, we are having the same debilitating arguments.

    On Abbott, though, he’s the classic example of the climate change sceptic who brings nothing in the way of standing to the debate. The two greatest influences on his career development were his time in a seminary, a profession of fantasists, and his time as a journo, the chosen career of the dilettante.

  46. Beertruk

    And speaking of fantasists, what about his good friend, Cardinal George Pell?

    I still recall his side-splitting column in The Sunday Telegraph where Pell, the great empiricist that he is, said he was yet to be convinced of the evidence on climate change. He’s perfectly happy with the Immaculate Conception, though.

    The unpleasantness that informs the sceptics was on full display only yesterday with the scorn being directed at the former head of our defence forces, retired Admiral Chris Barrie, who warned in a speech on Wednesday that Australia faces a potentially unmanageable security crisis within the next 30 years because of climate change-induced mass migrations.

    He said the melting of the Himalayan glacier, which scientists predict will shrink by at least a third if temperatures rise by 1.5C, would create “a very high risk” that freshwater would not be available for hundreds of millions of people.

    By repeating this scientific fact, Barrie was smashed by the usual suspects. It’s absurd because, in a geopolitical sense, you can already see the strategic interests of Australia being affected by our climate change policies in the Pacific region.

    The hostile reception our PM Scott Morrison received on his recent meeting with Pacific leaders was fuelled by the perception (and reality) that Australia is not doing enough on climate change.

    These Pacific nations have a real dog in the fight on this question, quite simply because some of them will end up underwater. If Australia is seen as not pulling its weight, it loses any moral authority in the region over its greatest strategic competitor, China, which is already using the soft diplomacy of aid to cuddle up to nations such as Vanuatu.

    All of these things are intertwined, and require thought, yet it’s easier, I guess, to dismiss someone such as Admiral Barrie as a virtue-signalling try-hard who wants to impress the trendies.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to start lying on roads or dancing the Madison. I just reckon I know where the real crackpots are.

    Please don’t fall for this media nonsense about male violence against “women and children.” Women are at least as domestically violent as men. Child abuse is more often done by mothers than fathers.

    And let’s not forget abortion, so admired and supported by female politicians..
