Scott Morrison made Instapundit!

I thought this was one of the most on-the-money posts I’ve seen at Instapundit: Denying the sky is blue because Orange Man Bad. This was some of it:


Yes, America is only 243 years old. But by the same token Italy is only 138 years old.

In any case, if you’re rolling your eyes at Trump’s statement – and thinking that the Italian interpreter is too – you’re missing the point, which is that countries like the United States and Italy – and Great Britain and Australia and Germany and Poland and Spain and Slovenia and so on – do indeed share a cultural and political heritage dating back to ancient Rome (and further back in time). It’s called the Western civilisation. You might hate it, but you’re still in it.

But this is what got me right in since where I found it was at Instapundit!!. And look who gets a mention.

TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME: Denying the sky is blue because Orange Man Bad. “If Trump – or Obama or Scott Morrison or Hillary Clinton – saying that 2 + 2 = 4 makes you automatically deny the math because your bête noire simply cannot be correct, you might want to take a deep breath or two and reflect on your approach to life. You’re broken. Don’t be that person.”

Oh they are broken, loonies even. Complete crackpots. What kind of people live in places like Australia and want to get rid of air conditioning? Nutters through and through.

    Nobody in Australia seems to be suffering from any ‘Morrison Derangement Syndrome’.

    Some did suffer a bout of the snuffles, during his tenure as Immigration Minister – but that was part of another Derangement Syndrome, that still infects so many of the left and surprisingly quite a few from the right, judging by some at the Cat (by which, of course – I mean Sinc)

    The Left has been airbrushing history furiously. You will get nothing of Caesar or Cicero in Australian schools, and everything about Aborigines.

    I believe it is on purpose, since democracy and freedom were won with great cost in blood and treasure, but both stand in the way of the Left’s agendas. So they make it all go away. We are living in Century Zero.

    It was interesting that recently the progressive left government in Sweden attempted to abolish teaching ancient history in schools, but were forced to pull their heads in due to an outcry.

    If you don’t learn from history you will be condemned to repeat it, starting in Oct 1917.

    In all fairness, Hillary Clinton would not say 2+2=4. She would say it equals 3.9.

    The Clintons always make sure they get their cut.

    Trump is absolutely correct. His statement has nothing to do with age of modern nations and everything to do with the construction of the American Constitution. America’s Founding Fathers took their views on the nature of a Republic directly from the republican philosophies expounded by Roman orators whose ideas have passed into the heritage of the West, amalgamating with the democratic demos concepts of Ancient Greece.

    When you boil it down, Rome has left a legacy of government and social arrangement that remains today in the Western World through its laws, its arts, its political system and so on… The Christian faith, with its birthplace in the Holy Land occupied by Rome, was allowed to spread to the international shaper of minds and hearts for more than two thousand years…
    So yeah… Trump is correct… we too in Oz have much to be thankful for because of the rich heritage of government and civilisation we enjoy…
