  4. Rex Mango

    This bit from Jess Hill on the Q&A transcript amuses me. A concession regards indig violence, but then qualification about their ‘very strict moral code’ and then wild accusations about police violence. The whole panel was obsessed with violence:

    There may have been violence in Indigenous cultures before we got here, but they lived by a very strict moral code, and we have had that culture of violence that has been totally unresolved in this country for over 200 years, and we have not made peace with it, and there’s no way that you’re going to change police without changing the community.

  5. Rex Mango

    Apologies, left off the quote about police violence bit. Amusing as no organisation has been as thoroughly feminised over the years as the police, in all the states, yet seems they are still thugs:

    There may have been violence in Indigenous cultures before we got here, but they lived by a very strict moral code, and we have had that culture of violence that has been totally unresolved in this country for over 200 years, and we have not made peace with it, and there’s no way that you’re going to change police without changing the community. Police are just people. They’re people who live in Australia, and Australia has a very hard, long history of violence against Aboriginal women and girls and Aboriginal boys. And unless we resolve that and do some truth telling around that, there’s no chance that the police are going to be reformed.

    Why are women so shit at being men, part 1000 in a continuing series…

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/07/mothers-promised-full-year-of-maternity-pay-in-labour-manifesto

    Mothers will be given maternity pay for a full year after the birth of their children and all employees will have a right to work flexibly as part of a Labour manifesto pledge to improve life for parents.

    Dawn Butler, Labour’s shadow women and equalities secretary, said she wanted to see a “step change in how women are treated at work”, which would be reflected in the party’s manifesto when it is published in a few weeks’ time.

    She said Labour would stick with its 2017 pledge to increase statutory maternity pay from nine to 12 months, allowing mothers or partners sharing parental leave to spend a full year between them with their newborn babies.

    The party has also promised to give workers the right to choose working hours that suit them through a “presumption in favour of flexible work” – putting the onus on employers to explain why if they could not offer that.

    Labour has already pledged to create a workers’ protection agency with powers to fine organisations that fail to report their gender pay, publish action plans to reduce pay gaps or take satisfactory measures to close the pay gap.

    Butler said all large employers, under Labour’s proposals, would be forced to introduce a menopause workplace policy to break the stigma associated with it and pledged to do more to tackle sexual harassment in the workplace.

    menopause workplace policy = dont hire mad old women?
    To be matched with dont hire fertile ladies either.

  9. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    but they lived by a very strict moral code,

    Is that when “pointing the bone” was a death sentence?

  10. Rex Mango

    Jess Hill’s arguement is violence is ok if you have a moral code. Ie, Australia has no moral code anymore, so violence can’t be excused.

    I’ve been reading Pullman’s La Belle Sauvage and it’s very good. The nominally Christian bad guys are totalitarian arseholes, and the underground opposition want democracy and free speech. It reads like a fight against contemporary lefties transposed to a different but familiar world. Pullman isn’t fooled by labels, and you shouldn’t be either. By their fruits shall ye know them.

    I believe there’s deep seated mental instability there, and very little capacity to experience happiness. I don’t want them silenced though, just criticised and challenged.

    With censorship, we would never have seen the arrant lunacy, frothing and bubbling within the shambolic halls of their ABC.

    Thats piece you linked is like a talentless Willam Burroughs doing mogodon.

    There was also the other time during NAIDOC week which is the first full week of July. There was like for one of the first times in Melbourne, a queer party night at the laundry bar in Fitzroy. So I went to that, and I don’t often wear underwear because I don’t like underwear. But this particular night I had my period, and I didn’t wear underwear and I had a tampon in. So I was dancing and I was having a great time and I looked on the ground and I saw this, surely that cant be that’s a bit gross! Anyway so I saw this used tampon on the ground, and was like ‘ew’. It took me ten minutes to clock ‘oh fuck that might be mine’. Initially I was really judgy, like how dare this person! This is a public health issue. How dare you. Went to the toilet and had a bit of an exploration and as it turns out it was mine. So that happened. I did still get laid that night so thank you.

    Period sex is lit fam, it’s great.

    ‘She was covered in blood’: Man jailed for bashing pregnant stranger

    NATASHA EMECK, NT News. November 8, 2019

    A DARWIN man who broke into a pregnant woman’s home at night and bashed her to a pulp has been sentenced to five years behind bars.

    Stuart Hansen, 42, was sentenced in the Supreme Court on Thursday to five years in jail, with a non-parole period of two-and-a-half years, for unlawful entry and two counts of causing harm.

    The court heard that Hansen threatened to kill a pregnant woman when she woke up and caught him breaking into her Humpty Doo home about 1am on October 12, 2018.

    Acting Justice Stephen Southwood said the offender later returned and broke in again.

    “The offender went back into her bedroom and jumped on to the bed,” he said.

    “She tried to get away from him and kicked him in the stomach.

    “He pinned her to the bed, punched her in the face and said: ‘I’m going to kill you if I get into any trouble for this’.”

    During the struggle, they both fell on to the floor and Hansen sat over the woman and began repeatedly punching her in the face using both of his fists.

    The victim’s mother woke from the noise and came into the bedroom.

    By then the woman was lying face down on the floor and Hansen was standing over her holding a fistful of her hair and punching her in the back of the head.

    He also began forcefully hitting her head into the ground.

    The mother jumped on his back and tried to pull him off but he swung her off, twisted her arm and punched her in the chest before making an escape.

    Acting Justice Southwood said Hansen had caused serious harm to the expectant mum.

    “Her face was covered in blood and her eyes were almost swollen shut,” he said.

    “She was also bleeding from her vagina and worried about the health of her unborn child.”

    The court heard Hansen had a history of drug use and similar offending.

    Another great quote from Jess Hill, where she seems to have forgotten that indig culture was very much a patriarchy:

    What we did is we came here, we raped and abducted their women and girls. We instilled a system of patriarchy and racism. We then… When we raped and abducted their girls, when they had white babies, we abducted them, and then we legislated for about 180 years to destroy their culture, or to try to destroy their culture, because we thought that they were already doomed and we were almost doing them a favour. So, what I think we’ve come to now is, you know, we imported the violence.

  51. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    Nonsense. I would never give our beloved Perfesser,

    No, I know you wouldn’t, Percy. For a start you’re a bloke. I think.
    I was referring specifically to the ladies of the Catallaxy Committee for High Moral Standards, who got a bit miffed when one of their number got chastised for being a loud-mouthed, insulting harridan.

  52. Rex Mango

    Here’s a profound insight from Frank Elly about police. Think he’s saying that as police attend DV incident every 2 minutes, the police need to change. Odd logic:

    The police are, you know, a key institution in dealing with domestic violence. Police, what, address a domestic violence incident in this country once every two minutes? How do we get them to acknowledge and to change?

  53. Mother Lode

    So, what I think we’ve come to now is, you know, we imported the violence.

    There was no violence before white people?

    Hahahahaaa!

    As for racism, the paucity of experience of most Aborigines means they would not have seen people of different races, but if their inter tribal violence is anything we can go on then we can see that us/them was a very real dynamic.

  54. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    Ellie – please note the actual Nong quote below, which I believe was directed at your good self, among others:

    I don’t have any desire or intention to meet anyone who posts on this blog but I don’t want to accidentally meet one of you one day and think oh s*** I know nothing about them except that they shave their pubes and like giving head

  61. Rex Mango

    Ok, one more beauty from that lovely girl Mona, about as she puts it, our ostensible democracy:

    But what you’re talking about is the overwhelming power of the state, and that state is driven by a white supremacist patriarchy. When I look at your prime minister, when I look at Donald Trump, when I look at Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in Egypt, when I look at Bolsonaro, all of these men are patriarchal authoritarians. At the heart of the way that they rule is violence, and that violence depends…

  62. Knuckle Dragger

    I’m not sure what’s more disturbing.

    That a shitrat like Narkle is still breathing; or

    That there’s a woman roaming this land who met this xunt THREE WEEKS before he’s binned – for roping a homeless bloke, no less – marries him, allows him to slag off at her ever since and then says she’s not scared of him and he’s not a threat.

    Idiocy. At some point, if it’s not already happening the taxpayer will foot the bill for her gargantuan stupidity.

  63. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    There was no violence before white people?

    It’s true.
    The men beat up the women whenever they felt like it, and the women were too afraid to even try and cover their faces. They just stood there and took it until they fell down.

    No violence involved.

    Mrs Brown: Winnie McGoogan, my dearest friend. Winnie, we’ve been together through thick and thin.

    Mrs Brown: I was always thin. Winnie, when my Redser lost his job and we had no money, you were there by my side.
    Winnie McGoogan: I was.
    Mrs Brown: And when Redser went in to have his left leg removed, you were there by my side.

    To me this is war, a hate filled war they are waging , it’s also very feminazi based , full of insulated ignorance of the real world outside their bubble, and who cares anyway, because virtue signalling and hatred of the bogan Australians using plastic, cancels out any practical policy.

    The fun is really going to hit the fan when China takes over and sends these ‘intellectuals” to work the rice paddies, or mine coal by hand. Can you imagine these harridanic elites coated in coal dust? “waah! Marjorie is wearing blackface and I’m offended!” or “Is this mud that is seeping into my crotch, organic? And what about the rice we’re planting – is it vegan, non GM, or Fair Trade?”

    If we talk about stopping the violence in indigenous communities it is cultural genocide.

    That’s because the subject is “fresh and new” ™. It’s never happened to other people. Especially mature women who think “Bloody ‘ell. I can’t wait for change of life…”
    This view comes about from having very limited life experience, and a determination to never gain any more by living inside a mirrored bubble with the only other occupants being ones who think similarly to yourself – or the ones who ‘like’ your FB page.

    How will the Adelaide de-sal plant help farmers

    The mind numbing stupidity of what’s happening here takes a while to sink in.
    In point form;
    1- There is a widespread drought.
    2- Storage dams exist to mitigate the effects of such droughts. An explanation of how is not needed.
    3- Enormous amounts of water, that could be used as per point 2, have been flowing out to sea (because of green pandering policies) for years.
    4- This water has been flowing through river systems THAT WOULD’VE BEEN DRY by now 100 yrs ago.
    5- There is no evidence these so called “environmental flows” are being reduced.

    Which in essence means the water supplied to Adelaide is first flowing past the uptake from the Murray, going out to sea, becomes saline, gets sucked up, de-salinized and then pumped to the city.

    Instead of just cutting environmental flows back to somewhere in line with what they would be during a drought of this magnitude.

    There never actually was a good Samaritan.

  117. Arky

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan
    25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

    28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

    29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

    36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

    37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

    Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

    Footnotes:

  118. calli

    And how could the Good Samaritan be a Christian at the time he did the deed?

    There is a school of thought that Jesus was referring to something that actually happened. And that’s why it resonated.

    A 17-year-old girl, Natalie Bird, has been suspended from school for refusing to wear a Remembrance Day poppy containing a rainbow in support of LGBT+ causes.
    In a report by Canadian publication, The Post Millennial, the girl is the cousin of a former Conservative representative from Northern Manitoba, Cyara Bird.

    Bird announced the news of her cousin’s suspension on social media, following her rejection of the newly added rainbow into the traditional red and black poppy to commemorate the millions of young soldiers who lost their lives in the two World Wars.

    According to The Post Millennial, Bird’s cousin, Natalie, and another student voiced their reproach toward the idea of infusing the LGBT rainbow into the poppy as disrespectful to those who lost their lives.

    As a result, she and the other student were sent to the headmaster’s office where they were punished for their positions.

    My 17 year old cousin was suspended today… want to know why? Her choir teacher was demanding that the choir wear rainbow poppies during their performance in the Remembrance Day ceremony. She and another student rejected that idea, and both were suspended for “hate speech.”

    Stonemason sacked for boasting about smashing Uluru cairn

    EXCLUSIVE

    6 MINUTES AGO NOVEMBER 8, 2019

    A stonemason indirectly employed by the federal government to help close the world-famous Uluru climb is understood to have been sacked for boasting about smashing the “ugly” summit cairn and rebuilding it inside out.

    The comments have outraged activists, who say the cairn is World Heritage-listed and hope the UN body responsible may ask Parks Australia to reverse the climbing ban.

    Marc Hendrickx, who runs the Right to Climb blog, called the damage to what he sees as part of Australia’s national heritage, “absolutely shameful”.

    “Parks Australia entrusted the removal of this heritage item essentially to an Aboriginal rights activist who considered the items to be, ‘All that White man stuff’,” Mr Hendrickx said.

    “It seems very little care went into dismantling the monument. It was supposed to have been taken down piece by piece, carefully labelled and transported so it could have been reconstructed as it was, for potential display at the base of the rock or the National Museum.”

    The Melbourne-based subcontractor, Luke Doyle, told Alice Springs local radio he had been unemployed for two years before taking the job “for passion” rather than profit.

    A photo of Doyle taken atop the rock and alongside the destroyed cairn shows him grinning with long hair and a straggly beard and wearing a “Mad for Music” T-shirt.

    “My first song when I get back with my band, the Secateurs, is going to be called ‘Smash the Cairn’,” Mr Doyle told the ABC on Thursday.

    “And it goes: Smash the cairn, smash the cairn, smash the cairn, cause I can.”

    Presenter Myf Warhurst laughed at Mr Doyle’s remarks and told him he was getting “lots of love” from listeners.

    Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park staff are understood to have been horrified by the interview, in which Doyle boasted about taking helicopter flights and thousands of photographs of sacred Uluru, where photography is heavily restricted.

    “He (the pilot) just puts me down like a metre from the cairn, and we unload the tools and see you later and off he goes. And I look at it, and it’s so ugly. It is hideous,” Mr Doyle said.

    “We got battery operated little demolition hammers … it’s 6 o’clock in the morning when I land there right … by 8 o’clock I had the whole thing gone.”

    “I’ve rebuilt that sucker. I turned all the stone around, so the paint side is in. And I put all the Mt Conner stone facing out. And it’s beautiful. Everybody’s lovin’ it.”

    Mr Doyle added that he had told his story to a woman in a bar who had offered to help him write a book.

    Mr Hendrickx said he had “always contended that the Ayers Rock Summit Climb and its associated infrastructure are items of important cultural heritage, protected by the 1987 World Heritage Agreement.”

    “Parks Australia have breached the lease agreement and its obligations under the World Heritage agreement by banning the climb and destroying the summit monument, chain and memorial plaques,” he said.

    “Through some Orwellian doublespeak Parks Australia contends that its actions are legal. For want of a seven-figure sum, their warped interpretation remains unchallenged in the courts. “They should be deeply ashamed of the manner in which this has been done, and the Minister should be held account for allowing this travesty to occur.”

    Mr Doyle is understood to have been employed by Spire Access & Rigging, a Melbourne firm that won the Cairn-removal contract.

    Founder David Wallis did not return calls. Sources familiar with the incident told The Australian Mr Doyle had been sacked by Spire soon after his interview aired.

    Mr Hendrickx said he planned to complain to the ABC.

    A spokesman said Parks Australia “does not endorse comments recently made that suggested the cairn was smashed and damaged during the removal process.”

    The cairn needed to be disassembled to be removed from the top of Uluru.

    “Parks Australia can reassure anyone who may have concerns about the cairn, that it will be stored safely and securely for historical and educational purposes,” the spokesman said.

    Parks Australia disagrees with the view that 1987 World Heritage listing incorporated the act of climbing Uluru, the cairn and other items.

    Very good question. Still, Tolkein’s characters are hardly lacking in depth even taking that into account. He hates Tolkein because he’s a Christian and he doesn’t weave any of this with a dead hand through LoTR. So it has the power to imbibe Christian themes with a light touch. Just compare that to Pullman’s work which is as blunt as a hammer in its allusions.

    Tolkien explored qualities of character. Sure, some of the characters are wafer thin, but others are complex. There has been scoffing by reviewers about Aragorn, for instance.

    Prominent Indigenous leader Noel Pearson, a leading proponent of constitutional recognition for Australia’s First Peoples, will join a senior advisory group tasked with overseeing the design of a “voice” to governments.

    Mr Pearson, the Cape York Partnership founder, is among 17 notable Australians appointed on Friday by Indigenous Affairs Minister Ken Wyatt to help develop a model that ensures Indigenous Australians are heard at all levels of government.

    He joins former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social justice commissioner Mick Gooda, co-chair of the Joint Council on Closing the Gap Pat Turner, prominent Jesuit priest and lawyer Frank Brennan, Galarrwuy Yunupingu, leader of the Gumatj clan of Arnhem Land and chairman of the Northern Land Council, and emerging Indigenous leader Benson Saulo. Sky News Australia presenter and columnist for The Australian, Chris Kenny, Anindilyakwa Land Council chairman Tony Wurramarrba and Social Justice Commissioner June Oscar have also been appointed.

    Leviticus 19:33-34 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
    33 When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. 34 The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

    ..
    I will have to pay that, at least until I examine the translation word by word.
    But notice it is sandwiched between an instruction on how to behave on trams and an EU type regulation on measures:
    ..

    32 “‘Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.

    33 “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. 34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

    35 “‘Do not use dishonest standards when measuring length, weight or quantity. 36 Use honest scales and honest weights, an honest ephah[d] and an honest hin.[e] I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt.

    ..
    And my original argument was with Bespoke who quoted the ten commandments as a definition of decency.
    So I pushed the point slightly too far with including the whole of the Old Testament.
    You could find maybe one passage in the whole thing.

    At the risk of causing Wangnerock this is an important little story.

    File Under “Fake News from Vietnam”

    At the height of the 1968 Tet Offensive, while prisoners were being rounded up in Saigon, General Nguyễn Ngọc Loan casually strolls over to a young man and shoots him in the temple.

    The photo, taken with one-in-a-million perfect timing as the bullet entered the man’s head, won Eddie Adams the Pulitzer Prize and has been reproduced countless times as an example of the brutality of war, and especially of the American war effort in Vietnam.

    However, what most people at the time, and even now, don’t know about the events leading up to the “Saigon Execution” photo paint a somewhat different picture from what the public got at first glance….

    No.
    How can a “stranger” dwell in your land?
    ..
    If you want to disprove my point, you will need to go through this list of words, variously translated as “alien” “stranger” “sojourner”.
    And nowhere as “foreigner’.

    The parable was about obeying the letter of the law and throwing common kindness out the window. And still feeling righteous while you did it.

    They knew what He meant. And they hated Him for it. It still raises hackles.

    From which I have always inferred that Jesus had met pious shits and didn’t approve of them. And yes, the pious shits didn’t like him either. Plus ça change…

    To get to the point.
    the word Hagger in Hebr#w can be translated as “alien” “sojourner” or “stranger” among others.
    In the Leviticus context it means “sojourner”.
    In other words like a guest worker.
    Hardly the same thing as helping a dying foriegner in the gutter.
    It makes perfect sense for the old testament to exhort (once) j#ws to treat foriegn workers, ALREADY residing in Isra#l the same way as they wanted to get treated as workers under Pharaoh.

    Ive been inspired to poetry by the story of the girl suspended for now wearing a rainbow poppy for remembrance day.

    In Canadian Fields
    BY A VERY BAD PERSON

    In Canadian fields the QWERTYs blow
    Between the bathouses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and behind my fly
    The knackers, still bravely swinging, lie
    Scarce heard as the bottoms bellow.

    We are the futureless. Short days ago
    We voted Treudau, felt Xir, saw hate laws grow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Canadian fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the straight:
    To you from jazz hands we throw
    The rainbow poppy; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who are futureless
    We shall not shut up, though QWERTYs blow
    All over Canadas fields.

    Hard work being a hostie these days…especially with some people….

    A Melbourne woman has accused Jetstar staff of racism after she and 21 other members of her extended family were removed from a flight.

    Sarah Aslan was preparing to travel home from Bali after her wedding when her friends and family were booted off the plane as it sat on the tarmac at Denpasar on Monday night, Nine News reports.

    Video obtained by the network shows members of the party speaking with airline staff about the in-flight entertainment.

    “Is it the beard?” one man asks a flight attendant.

    “It feels like it might be.”

    It’s not clear exactly what was said but Ms Aslan claims she and her family were kicked off the plane because of their appearance.

    “Personally, it did feel like we were being attacked for looking ethnic and being Moooouslim,” she told Nine News.

    The family said no one was intoxicated on the flight.

    A Facebook post, obtained by the Herald Sun, written by Selim Tutuncu, who claims to be a member of the family, also claims they were “racially, verbally and physically assaulted”.

    He added the family were left stranded with their children and forced to sleep on benches at the airport.

    However, his claims, along with Ms Aslan’s, have been disputed.

    Other passengers claim the family’s behaviour was ‘disgusting’. Source: AAP/file

    On Facebook, a woman wrote the family in question became abusive and asked for compensation when the in-flight system wasn’t working.

    What followed was “swearing” and “threats of bashing”, she wrote.

    A Jetstar spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia while taxiing to the runway “a number of customers became disruptive and failed to follow crew instructions”.

    “The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we do not tolerate any kind of disruptive or abusive behaviour,” the spokesperson said.

    “We take these allegations extremely seriously and are investigating the matter, however our crew dispute the claims made by these passengers.”

    Hang on – wasn’t Aslan a hero???

    Once upon a time a merchant was making his way down the road when he was set upon by street gang who beat the crap out of him, took his wallet, and left him lying, bleeding in the gutter.

    Presently along came a doctor, a fine upstanding member of the community who attended church each Sunday with his family. He saw the poor, beaten up merchant but he didn’t want to get involved. So he pretended he didn’t see the beaten up bloke and scurried past.

    Then along came a bank manager who was also a fine upstanding member of the community who attended church each Sunday with his family. He also saw the poor guy in the gutter, but didn’t want to get involved, so walked past too.

    Then up rode a bikie, a long haired, tattooed bum. He saw the victim,, got off his hog, and tended him as best he could. Then he loaded the guy onto his bike and wheeled him along gently until he came to a motel.
