Mocking the Greens

So it seems that half of New South Wales is on fire and the Greens’ Adam Bandt is out there capitalising on the tragedy. Cartoonists at both the Australian and the Herald Sun have back-handed him this morning.

Mocking the Greens I

Mocking the Greens II

They are both very good – but Mark Knight’s picture (left) is magnificent. What I find most interesting, however, is the notion that mocking a Green (or anyone actually) warming about the hell-fire and damnation of climate change has become acceptable. Only a few years ago the entire progressive establishment (including elements within the Liberal Party) would have been out there drawing the links between bushfires and climate change. Now with only Bandt have stuck his head out, we see cartoonists tearing him a new one.

Good.

    Good indeed – although mocking is a very tame form of punishment, personally I’d have all the Greens in stocks with everyone else lobbing rotten fruit and vegetables (potatoes and onions are especially pungent) at them.

    The Greens may not have lit the match that started the fires, but their insane regulations, political correctness, and bullying, have effectively provided the fuel that ensured the fires speed, heat and ferocity. I am coming to the conclusion that the mindset that drives individuals of the Left is not only an attribute of immaturity, but also a form of psychosis as well – like the psychosis that drives mass murderers and spree killers. How else can you explain the Green’s refusal to allow forest hazard reduction, especially given the fire history of Australia. The only answer is that the Greens hate humanity – and their refusal to prevent life-threatening wildfires shows that they have murderous hearts.

    Anyone with an ounce of sense knows what has to be done – yet the Greens seem to want people to die – and not only people, but livestock, flora and fauna as well.

    So Cartoonists, feel free to mock away – throw the rotten fruit that is denied us.

    Too soon! Too soon!

    You should wait until some indeterminate day in the future before trying to score political points.

  4. Robert O. says:

    There are a couple of serious points arising from the NSW fires , politics and the greens in paticular.

    First, as there is no valid mathematical relationship between levels of carbon dioxide and global temperature a carbon tax, or whatever, will achieve very little apart from take money from more meaningful endeavours.

    Second, our eucalypt forests drop a lot of woody material, bark, leaves, twigs, and gum-nuts, on an annual basis and this is very slowly incorporated into the soil humus; more in the more humid forests than the dryer ones. If these fuel loads are not diminished periodically, mainly by Spring burning, there will come a time when the weather conditions are such that it is not possible to stop a catastrophy. All that is needed is a source of ignition, power-lines, man, or lightning.

    There have been many such instances of this historically, 1939 in Victoria, 1936 and 1967 in Tasmania, as well as more recent events, with enormous loss of life and property. And the only practical solution is to keep fuel loads low, maintain fire-breaks and if you live in the bush keep everything clean and have a fire pump .

    Unfortunately, the greens have little understanding of either the weather, or eucalypt ecology.

  5. Leo G says:

    What is Bandt actually suggesting? That global increases in greenhouse gases over the past decade or more have caused a dramatic shift in Australia’s climate, and an even more dramatic shift more locally (eg the Blue Mountains of NSW), even though the shift in global average temperature over the period has been less than a thousandth of a degree per year?
    Is he suggesting that anthropogenic global warming can think globally and act locally? That an AGW Gaia is passing judgement on climate criminals, who propose future changes in Australian Government climate change policies, with a scorched earth campaign?

  6. Fisky says:

    Only a few years ago the entire progressive establishment (including elements within the Liberal Party) would have been out there drawing the links between bushfires and climate change.

    Not only that, the entire progressive establishment would have been furious at anyone who mocked the Greens. It was basically forbidden to say anything bad about the Greens until about a year or two ago.

  7. Bruce says:

    Kool Aid is green, although here in Oz it was called GI lime for ages. I guess that meant Green Insanity.

    Fortunately, unlike that other unmockable religion, they don’t use AK-47’s.

  8. Johno says:

    It is good to see a few cartoonist mocking the Greens Party, but this insidious ideology still reins supreme among the elite who determine most of our policies. Until Greg Hunt admit that the global warming scare was a Great Big Green Scam there is a fight to be had. Promising early signs, but there is a long way to go.

  9. David says:

    Meanwhile, in Canberra it was the coldest October day ever. Will the Greens be telling us that a new ice age is coming? I’m sure it will still be TA’s fault, of course.

  10. Fred Lenin says:

    Why doesnt bandt do an ambulance chase to Russia,he can save the groinpeese pirates from jail with his slater and gordon skills,he might have been tutored by giliard though he talks eddicated unlike her.If he goesto Russia he had better leave his Poofterhabits here ,Poofterism is Illegal in Russia ,even for Slugs and Grubs lawyers,Life for a Poof in a Russian jail would be unpleasant to say the least!

  11. Fisky says:

    The Left’s push to expand the RDA to include vilification of political allegiance was entirely motivated by a need to protect the Greens and Labor from criticism. This cartoon would be brought before Judge Mordy under the changes they ultimately dropped.

  12. Alfonso says:

    193 houses destroyed.
    Alas, many burn through understandable but poor judgement. Sure , high wind driven flame topping out through big trees is to be fleed from. Understory fires even pushing horizontal flames usually don’t get too close to houses with minimal precautionary clearing. The houses burn because no one is there to put out ember fires behind roof gutters. The give away is scenes where the sparse trees around the house are still green but a short hot grass fire totals the house due to the owners taking evacuation advice from low info amateurs like the SES.

  13. jupes says:

    It was basically forbidden to say anything bad about the Greens until about a year or two ago.

    It’s such a shame the ABC is behind the times.

  14. min says:

    Frankly I think the world is in more danger in 2032 when that asteroid comes by again . What does Bandt suggest we do, having less CO2 won’t help.

  17. boy on a bike says:

    Hang on a mo – we got ourselves a carbon tax, and we started to reduce our CO2 output, and we still got bushfires.

  18. Luke says:

    I can’t shake the feeling that a few centuries ago Greens like Adam Bant would have been the sought to burn witches and sell in indulgences.

    BTW the turning point for the Greens was Bob Brown declaring war on the hate media because one of them asked him an awkward question.

  19. Fisky says:

    ‘First they ignore you , then they laugh at you , then they get angry with you , then you win .’ – Gandhi.

    Funny, because with the Greens it’s been exactly the other way around. First you win, then they get angry with you, then they laugh at you, then they ignore you. Welcome to irrelevance Greenies!

  20. H B Bear says:

    Anyone who doesn’t regard a political party headed by someone who addresses alien life forms as a laughable joke is to be pitied.

    Bandt’s comments are intended primarily for Northcote hipsters and Brunswick ferals, who will lap them up.

  21. Mrs Beardsley says:

    Greens voters largely are ignorant university students and pinkos. The more ignorant they are of the facts, the more certain they are of their utterly stupid beliefs.
    Greens are troublesome and noisy in numbers and dangerous in government – local, state or federal.

    I firmly believe we need to out each local council Greens and their supporters so to properly clean up Australia.

    Yep, we’ve belted them at Federal and State levels ( QLD at least ) so the front line is now Local.
    Push on to victory people, we’re almost there.

  24. Tapdog says:

    What is Bandt actually suggesting?

    What he said was that Tony Abbott is responsible for creating an environment in which this kind of thing happens. It was a particularly reprehensible act on account of Bandt’s recent denunciation of critics of Gillard’s illegal immigrant policy while there were in his words ‘still bodies in the water’

    In any event, it’s probably sensible to ask whether ideologically motivated restrictions on hazard reduction burning etc contributed significantly to loss and damage in this week’s fires at Winmalee and Lithgow.

  25. Tinta says:

    …it’s probably sensible to ask whether ideologically motivated restrictions on hazard reduction burning etc contributed significantly to loss and damage in this week’s fires at Winmalee and Lithgow.

    was that question ever asked on behalf of the 173 souls who perished in the Victorian inferno back in 2009 you remember when Christine Nixon went off to have a meal while hell was frying the state?

  26. stackja says:

    When Tony Abbott took over the leadership ‘Mocking the Greens’ was unthinkable. Now!
    Greens took over from the Reds. What will be the next colour party?

  30. Zatara says:

    “it’s probably sensible to ask whether ideologically motivated restrictions on hazard reduction burning etc contributed significantly to loss and damage in this week’s fires at Winmalee and Lithgow.”

    Yes, and frankly it’s about time that question, and ones regarding the hundreds of dead due to these policies, were asked in a courtroom or a Coroners inquest.

    So another sensible question is “Why hasn’t it been?”.

  31. GaGa says:

    The ones politicising the situation are those who deny the reality that climate change is bringing an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme events . Bandt is simply stating the facts. Ignoring them will not help mitigate the consequences of future disasters.

  32. Leo G says:

    Hazard reduction burning isn’t really preventative in any case. There are tens of thousands of dwellings in Greater Sydney that are vulnerable to fires from nearby bushland under certain conditions. Hazred burning alone on a scale and regularity sufficient to minimise the risk isn’t feasible or effectual without land use and vegetation management tailored to the particular circumstances of each enclave of dwellings.
    Perhaps each such group needs to be formally recognised, easements defined, and residents made responsible and accountable to fund and to manage or delegate management of approved risk reduction according to Council code variances and through some kind of body corporate.

  33. James of the Glen says:

    Having been in Washington DC for the past few weeks it is rather depressing to return home and find this buffoon still extant and spouting crap from his cocoon of ignorance. That on top of Gillard mooted to be heading to DC to pile up more on the hapless Americans; surely she is ready to be locked up?

  34. maman says:

    Mrs Beardsley, would you be also adding to this most gruesome and tragic of tallies those souls so sadly lost at sea between Indonesia and Christmas Island? I would.

  35. Gab says:

    Hang on a mo – we got ourselves a carbon tax, and we started to reduce our CO2 output, and we still got bushfires.

    We could shut down all power and emit zero CO2 and we’d still have bushfires. For centuries to come. But you knew that.

  36. Andrew says:

    They shouldn’t be mocked, they should be chastised! 😀

  37. duncanm says:

    LeoG,

    that should be the function of the local RFS brigade.

    Unfortunately, I understand that much of this has been ‘centralised’ and they can’t act on their local knowledge – which would be a backwards step.

  38. Tapdog says:

    Hazred burning alone on a scale and regularity sufficient to minimise the risk isn’t feasible or effectual without land use and vegetation management tailored to the particular circumstances of each enclave of dwellings.

    Agree with that. And one impediment to fostering a sense of local and individual responsibility for hazard mitigation is the incredibly cumbersome, inflexible and time consuming process of applications and notifications necessary for even relatively small burns. That plus of course a heavy duty penalty regime for non compliance. There are I suggest many landholders who once upon a time took responsibility for their own immediate environment but who now, perhaps partly in fear of a monster fine, simply hope and pray that RFS volunteers will do the job before a wildfire arrives to do the job for them.

    There is a pretty straight causal link here that connects over-regulation with the loss of life and property.

  39. Up The Workers! says:

    Just one more flush and we’ll have the whole stinking “Brown Movement” around the electoral “S-bend”, leaving nothing but the stink behind.

  40. Somerville says:

    Thank you to all the Melbourne welfare state mendicants and smug totalitarians who voted for this oxygen Bandit. Thank you so much.

  41. jupes says:

    It was a good thing they did. Seriously.

    Bandt will have precisely zero effect on legislation in the lower house and his idiotic calls will only bring more ridicule on the Greens. People will finally wake up to these arseclowns.

  42. Zatara says:

    There is a pretty straight causal link here that connects over-regulation with the loss of life and property.

    Sooner or later the deep pocket insurance companies are going to grow enough cajones to raise exactly that issue. When the risk vs. gain and cost of inactivity equations cause the actuaries to do so.

  44. Splatacrobat says:

    sorry Fisky, I didn’t see your similar comment.

  45. Somerville says:

    It was a good thing they did. Seriously.

    I’m not so sure. It gives the Green parasites more credibility and they would always get plenty of adoring support from Their ABC and Fairfax anyway.

    I resent the payment of every single taxpayer dollar for parliamentary salaries and entitlements that goes into the parasitic Green maw; and it is highly disturbing that so many people in any electorate, even in inner city Melbourne, would have the character deficiencies that cause them to vote Green. But then again, Labor and their drone voters are really no better.

    It’s a spot on comment.
    Just wish people could get the terminology correct.
    “Back burning” is used to control/contain wildfires by constructing firebreaks ahead of the fire front, lighting a fire along this break and allowing it to burn back (against the wind) in a controlled manner towards the fire front.
    Hazard reduction burns are what the Greens are against.

  48. Jessie says:

    Mrs Beardsley,
    It is obvious that Federal, State and Local work well together with activists or those that present themselves as private services.
    Many in Australia and elsewhere can not and will not forget the Matt and Janet Thompson and Lindley Boseley.

    JumpnmCar, Chevron link was excellent, thanks.

    It beggars belief that Tom Calma and others continue to cite studies premised on association as causal in youth suicide rates, in the absence of education and employment and the penetration of green filth into these people’s lives and livelihood. Even Noel Pearson realised the horrendous damage done over decades following partnership with these gaia worshippers. He finally realised the human loss and destruction resulting from such a partnership.

  49. WhaleHunt Fun says:

    So the greens against the reduction of hazard to society by burning greens?
    I am not but I can see why they would be.

  50. Leo G says:

    “LeoG, that should be the function of the local RFS brigade.” – duncanm

    Hazard reduction burning should be performed by the RFS, but burning is not the only means of reducing fire hazard- sadly it is often, by default, the only method systematically used.

  51. Mrs Beardsley says:

    LeoG – what other methods are available to reduce fire risk?

  52. Mrs Beardsley says:

    Jessie, Matt & Janet’s story could be made into a horror movie. Their story is why I keep fighting.

  53. A Lurker says:

    LeoG – what other methods are available to reduce fire risk?

    I’m not LeoG, but allowing cattle and other livestock to graze in forests would certainly help keep the grass down. Also fire-breaks, fire-roads, and other access roads should be kept clear and accessible all year round.

    Manual clearing of understory would be time and energy consuming – which is why they do (at least in Queensland when weather conditions permit) controlled burns to reduce flammable material.

  54. Up The Workers! says:

    Even the A.L.P., in their more lucid moments, are prepared to admit that the Greens are nothing more than a Party of gibbering idiots.

    In fact, of all the political parties on earth, there is possibly only ONE party MORE stupid than the Greens.

    That would be the party which gets all of its ecological, climate, scientific, dietary and economic advice from a bunch of tree-hugging nutters whom IT acknowledges as congenital idiots.

    Thinking isn’t the A.L.P.’s strong point – which is why they contracted ALL their “thinking” and policy development to the Greens.

    Which only goes to prove that “thinking” isn’t the A.L.P.’s strong point!

    Damning report on Tasmania’s bushfire crisis finds lives probably put at risk

    Updated Wed 16 Oct 2013
    I wonder how other States might fare with similar inquiries.
    Can I just ask here – are the office ranks of our fire & emergency services filled by ex fire unions people? Listening to the NSW head honcho on his TV news spots is painful, IMHO blurring the message in a mass of over-egged numbers.
    And how about late on the night of the first day not having a ball park count of houses lost, with eye in the sky IR technology readily available, just news management. Took till the third day to get the number out.
    I also can not fathom why we do not employ the 4 engine air tanker technology just sitting idle in the USA right now. It seems our fire services “accompany” fires, in this case for 3 days and with conditions said to be not improving. We spend $Billions on “border protection” but can not spend a few $Millions having large air tankers available.

  56. Tapdog says:

    The expectation that the RFS will do our work for us is emblematic of the problem we have created for ourselves and right about now that problem looks like a perfect storm.

    – We insist on our right to build communities adjoining and amidst leafy enclaves
    – People knowingly gamble when they choose to live in bushfire prone areas
    – There are big fines if we remove trees, understory and fallen timber
    – Safety burns are over regulated with huge fines for non compliance – yes that’s you EPA
    – Bushfire fighting services are chronically under resourced and plagued by the expectation that unpaid RFS and SES volunteers will get us out of jail for free.

    The way ahead is less regulation and more personal responsibility for our actions

    Facebook: Mount Morris Station.

    A Green (Grant Newson) is trying to rewrite history. A Grazier sets him straight. Like Mount Morris, and feel free to comment.

    Here is my comment:

    Oh, Jebus Mount Morris Station you are spot on. I am so sick of the devastation caused by misguided Greens and their poisoning of the younger generation, branding of farmers as ‘environmental vandals’. The Greens are the vandals, with 309 deaths, thousands of buildings destroyed and animal life gone due to horrendous out-of-control bush fires caused in the main by build up of dangerous death traps in the way of fuel loads. Miranda Devine has exposed these Green charletans for what they are: liars, liars, pants on fire. http://blogs.news.com.au/…/comments/pull_the_other_one/

  58. Pickles says:

    The story of Matt & Janet Thompson ought be made into a doco. Their business destroyed, staff driven to suicide and finally, Matt & Janet & family driven back to the USA. doubtless the scum responsible still infest the WA public service.

  59. duncanm says:

    Mrs Beardsley,

    thanks for the link.. the most alarming part of that is the policy quoted by the Green candidate.

    The Greens recognise that Parks &Wildlife is presently under-resourced in relation to assessing and participating in selective fuel reduction burns, especially on private land.

    I’m sorry… they want to fund parks and wildlife to be able to come onto people’s private land and order them about regarding their fuel load ?!

  60. james says:

    The greenfilth can feel their influence slipping and they do not like it one bit. Read the comment section under Fairfax pieces and on the ABC. Even the herald sun letters page is full of hysterical screaming and general jumping up and down. RN drive the other night was essentially a religious revival meeting with apprehensive believers sharing tips on surviving the coming apocalypse. This ain’t over, these people are more fanatical than can easily be believed.

  61. . says:

    The solution is to allow more royalty based logging and firewood gathering, then regular mchanical fuel reduction and grazing. When this is inadequete, reduction burns before mid September.

    That and allow homeowners to clear near their land and on their land for safety reasons. A few hundred metres can be necessary.

  62. Mrs Beardsley says:

    Pickles, you are absolutely right. I can look into it, because such a project could well be crowd funded, and there are lots of good sorts who would support this, with Matt and Janet’s blessing.

  68. ohmygodIcan'tthinkofaname says:

    The reason that so many people still vote for the greens is the direct result of school curriculum’s having been controlled by the Left for years. We have a generation of programmed robots that parrot the ideology of the left. What concerns me more is when shown the truth, they still parrot on with the same propaganda. If someone can explain this I would really appreciate it. It is time for the ABC to be dismantled, Universities and school curriculums looked at. The Greens and the Left have virtually brainwashed one generation who are now in turn passing their insane doctrines on to their children. God rest those who have died because of these mad policies.

    The Greenfilth are going spare and doubling down on their beliefs. While many of them are simply moral posers a small minority of the deluded are getting into hair shirt and corporeal mortification time.

    Considering the rhetoric given out by the likes of Bandt it is probably only a matter of time before one of them snaps and resorts to serious violence in order to “Save the World”.

    Consider it carefully, if you seriously believed that the future of the Earth was in dire danger what acts would you not consider to be justified?

    These people need to be mocked for the same reason all pious fanatics need to be mocked, it is the only way to bring them down to Earth.

  75. Tapdog says:

    Give Bandt a break

    Can we give the Greens a break? For yonks they’ve been saying if we don’t look after the planet there will be hell to pay, and so, when that hell on earth arrives – most lately in terms of these unseasonal devastating bushfires – it is quite legitimate for the likes of Adam Bandt to draw attention to it, and advocate a change in policy. In the words of Barack Obama, denying the reality of climate change is the equivalent of belonging to the Flat Earth Society.

    The carbon tax was demonstrably successful in reducing emissions. So when the Prime Minister says the previous government should ”repent” bringing it in, even as we break yet another month’s temperature record, and the bushfires take hold, it is reasonable for Bandt to put an alternative view. He is not disrespecting those who have lost their homes, nor those heroes fighting the fires. He’s saying what needs to be said, to try to do something so fewer people lose their homes in the future. The problem is not that he’s pushing his ”political agenda”. It is that his agenda – actually doing something to preserve the planet – is not shared by us all. Fire at will.

  76. jupes says:

    In the words of Barack Obama, denying the reality of climate change is the equivalent of belonging to the Flat Earth Society.

    What does that even mean?

    The latest IPCC report ‘denied the reality of climate change’ as presented in all previous IPCC reports.

    Real world temperature measurements ‘denied the reality of climate change’ as presented in all previous IPCC reports.

    The pirate is a numptie of the ocean going class.

  77. Yohan says:

    I love this sort of projection…

    The ones politizising the situation are those who deny the reality that climate change is bringing an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme events. Bandt is simply stating the facts. Ignoring them will not help mitigate the consequences of future disasters.

    The facts actually show either a decrease or stable level in severe weather events. Tornado’s, floods, droughts e.t.c. Which is to be expected with a slightly warming globe. That’s right, before AGW alarmism it was scientifically accepted that the cooler weather has more extreme weather.

    But this would be news to Green morons who get their ‘facts’ from Dr Karl and Getup. Even ordinary people are mystified to hear that Hurricanes and Tornado’s are declining, because the general media tells them the exact opposite has been happening.

  78. . says:

    When will we get a change on grazing, clearing and hazard reduction (mechanical and fire) rules?

    That’s all that matters. I really don’t care about the fate of A Bandt.

  79. Pat Warnock says:

    Let cattle back in to reduce fuel load. Let the shooters in so there are more eyes to check for hazards. They will shoot a few but nothing like the number that are burned to a crisp every year. There is no management of national parks – ‘kerosene factories’. No one learned from the Canberra disaster that was caused by a fire that burned for three days without any attempt at containment. Can we employ people with knowledge of the bush – not book knowledge – to take over mamagement

  80. Jim Rose says:

    the error is his reasoning is connecting anything australia does to global warming. australia could do everything or nothing in taxing carbon and the climate will change the same.
