Woman Told

 

A Tasmanian Labor senator has apologised for reposting an “all lives matter” image to social media, saying it was “careless and insensitive”.

Helen Polley sparked outrage on Sunday night when she shared the image, which read “every life matters no matter what the colour of your skin is”…

Former Tasmanian Labor premier David Bartlett responded on Twitter, saying it was completely unacceptable for a representative of the Australian Labor Party, and a serious embarrassment to all in the Labor Party.

“I politely ask that you educate yourself,” Mr Bartlett tweeted…

Writer and comedian Benjamin Law urged Ms Polley to educate herself on why it might be considered offensive.

“With respect, the hashtag is one that has been started by white supremacists, similar to ‘it’s okay to be white’ – and should be avoided…”

Mr Law welcomed the apology.

ALL LIVES DO MATTER, BEN. PROVE ME WRONG. GO!

    Black lives matter, but not enough to stop aborting them or to stick around and be their fathers.

  2. Benjamin Law’s pretences of a comedy career are offensive.

    Other than being a troll – how is it funny for an Asian guy to tone police a white laydee on how she needs to shut up and fawn over blacks – Australuan Aborigines, for a crime alleged in America against an African American; to which a multi ethnic group has been charged on a homicide and bail has been set at 1 million USD?

    Now that is meta-comedic.

    Why don’t black father’s teach their sons not to committ suicide?

    It’s okay to be white?

    Not in the ALP.

    Cue Bill and his upper class blonde haired white trophy wife.

    Don’t make the mistake of playing the black lives/all lives game. These are extreme leftists and have no concern for black lives unless it furthers their anti-capitalist agenda. They are the same folks that occupied Wall Street and turn up for every climate march. BLM is merely the current distraction from what they really want and that’s an end to capitalism. Fight the real problem, not the distraction. Do not allow them to reframe the issue. This is a waste of your resources, which is exactly the aim. Don’t fall for it.

    White Taxpayers Lives Matter ! Or the whole facade of civilisation collapses . No more Centrelink,no more antifa fascism.

    The only Marx humour. Why a duck?

    One of the police accused in the killing of petty criminal George Floyd is Asian.

    When will Asian’s like Benjamin Law check their yellow privilege?

    I politely ask that you educate yourself. Your tweet (every life matters no matter what the colour of your skin is.) .. is tin-eared and a classic dog whistle.

    Former Tasmanian Labor premier David Bartlett implies that” black lives matter” is not tin-eared and not a classic dog whistle.
    Accordingly, a classic dog whistle then, is one that all people can hear. A Labor dog-whistle is one that is intended for, and to be understood by, only a particular demographic group.

    “With respect, the hashtag is one that has been started by white supremacists, similar to ‘it’s okay to be white’ – and should be avoided…”

    ..
    The conservative majority are useless at this stuff.
    So, Mr. law, you are saying white lives don’t matter, and it isn’t OK to be white?
    Sounds like a prelude to genocide to me.

  11. Arky

    Where is the cavalcade of tweets asking Mr. Law if it’s OK to be white, and if white lives matter?
    Personalise, isolate and make them live up to their own phony “rules”.
    Have we learnt nothing out of the numerous examples of these tactics over many, many years?

  12. Scott Osmond

    Considering the left’s bodycount it’s unsurprising that they don’t believe all lives matter. They are a murderous death cult. Nothing they say or do should be considered of value to those of us who value flush toilets or even a functional civilisation.

  13. Arky

    You had better understand the tactics they use and start practising the verbal counter moves, because silence doesn’t cut it any more. Going off onto a conservative place to write about it isn’t capturing any attention or changing any minds.
    Playing the strong hand weakly because you think it’s all self evident hasn’t worked ever.

    ALP:
    ‘Chinese communist party lives matter.’

  15. exsteelworker

    So all the outraged lives don’t matter?

  16. Say what you mean and mean what you say. And never apologise.

  17. Lee

    As Marx (Groucho) might say, “anything Benjamin Law says or supports, I’m against it!”

    How’s benny boy on the CCP? Love to hear his advice to them about evicting black africans in china.

  19. Roger

    Say what you mean and mean what you say. And never apologise.

    Or if you’re a Labor senator who wants to be on the next senate ticket just apologise.

    The next few Oz elections are going to be interesting to see how many sheeple are out there. Mathematics and numbers are not well understood by media and the average Jo. Recent poor reliability of polling is a classic indicator of this incompetence. Secret ballots (without virtue-signalling opportunity) always find out the true feelings of the average punter. Methinks it will be a blood-bath for the Left/Green because they have pushed too far. The virtue feelings of the vast majority have been totally frayed. Even it it is real, 30k is not a Big number in Gov elections. But never interrupt an enemy when they are making a mistake.

  21. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    White lives better matter because if white lives cease to exist the welfare gravy train will grind to a halt and all those very important black lives will also cease to exist!.

  22. Ed Case

    Automation and Robotics are at the stage that 95% of white males are superfluous to requirements.
    Good luck to anyone identified from those demos, they’re going to need it.

  23. Ed Case

    What’s up with that image?
    Secret squirrel?

  24. John A

    If “All Lives Matter” is an offensive statement, then I happily inform Helen Polley, David Bartlett and Benjamin Law that the Truth often offends.

    You’re welcome.

    And no, I won’t apologise.

  25. Chester Draws

    Chinese communist party lives matter.

    But Hong Kong Chinese ones clearly do not.

  26. Leo G

    If “All Lives Matter” is an offensive statement, …

    In this instance, Polley’s offence was exposing Labor’s hypocrisy.
    Labor’s black lies matter. They are about woke votes, not black lives.

  27. Diogenes

    A question for the very unfunny Ben Law…
    Do yellow lives matter ?

  28. Entropy

    When will Asian’s like Benjamin Law check their yellow privilege?

    “banana”.

  29. Professor Fred Lenin

    From whst I have read Floyd was a 6foot 7inch 250 pound convicted criminal ex jailbird and a drug addict well known to the Police a person worthy of respect and kneeling to ,yes righ comrades . If the policemen get a fair trial the true story will emerge no one can tell me the cop killed him deliberately in a public place .
    As for Australia, death in custody is an absolute nightmare for Police and Psvchiatric hospitals ,and something to be really avoided at all costs for all the trouble it causes everyone concerned . It still happens ,but rarely ,you would think it was common the way the fauxberiginals and their communist allies are talking , still TRUTH BEATS FACTS as that Sage Biden says .

    (Know nothing about tweeting.)
    Why do people who comment with a perfectly reasonable tweet, surrender so quickly?

    Benji’s going to find out that his schtick will wear out sooner than he expects. I still laugh about the time he tried to threaten Andrew Bolt, that he (Benji) knew some big tough gay guys who could kick Andrew’s butt. After you, Benji. No, I insist, ladies first.

    I condemn Black Lives Matter because they are a Marxist movement.
    Marxism is anti-Christ.
    They substitute sin with power.
    They substitute the individual with the tribe, imputing guilt, innocence, and judgement to collective groups, not responsible people.
    They absolve guilt, not by repentance, but by claiming victim status. Sin is justified for some tribes.
    They do not absolve guilt for all. It cannot be absolved for the wrong tribes.
    They exist to agitate, tear down, create chaos, divide, and destroy. That is the cultural Marxist objective – wreck the joint; destroy the system; do it violently.
    They substitute facts with emotion, stoking the flames of anger to drive this program, by (for example) wildly exaggerating the extent of racist policing. They gnaw away at law and order.
    Most horrifyingly of all, however, they don’t substitute forgiveness with anything. There simply is none. Sins of the past cannot ever be made right. Every last drop of reckoning, penance, and reparation must be extracted.

    RTWT it’s a brilliant takedown.

    Hey Googlery? You know your “Ed” sockpuppet? Now you’ve gotten sick of using it as a cartoon version of a right wing reactionary to try to get Sinclair into trouble, are you going to permanently forget about that portion of its history or will we get an occasional return just so that you can pretend like its not you at all?

    “A question for the very unfunny Ben Law…
    Do yellow lives matter ?”

    I wondered the same thing. Who does he identify with? They all have to identify with some group. And to extend your thought, does this mean other lives matter less? Is there a hierarchy? Does that justify harming others, because their lives matter less?

    On another note, it looks like the people in Democrat strongholds are happy for black lives to matter – so long as they keep their distance. Handgun sales are booming in the riot cities.

    Automation and robotics mean the end of white men?

    Really

    And excellent point John Brumble.

    There is a deep deep well of malice in a grigbot.

    Playing the strong hand weakly because you think it’s all self evident hasn’t worked ever.

    Absolutely….. Now let’s all just sit patiently on our hands and in a few years from now remember to vote our sitting member last, that’ll learn the [email protected] and fix everything!

    Benjamin Law,

    You realise that once they’re done with whitey, you’re next!

  39. H B Bear

    Imagine foul mouth fag (and ALPBC favourite) Benjamin Law lecturing anyone on manners.

    What happened to the open thread or isn’t one supposed to ask?

  41. miltonf

    This latest marxist, anti-western campaign is very slick, manufactured, astroturfed and well coordinated. Where did it originate from? The Columbia Journalism School? The DNC? The UN? Maybe all three.

  42. miltonf

    A lot of sleepers have been activated.

  43. Ed Case

    What happened to the open thread or isn’t one supposed to ask?

    This afternoon saw The Charge Of The Virtue Signalers.
    Into The Valley Of Contradictions they all galloped, the lame, the halt, the blind, their camp followers …

  44. Graham John barr

    So, what they are saying is that my life doesn’t matter.

    In that case. Here’s a middle finger. My life is worth as much as anyone else’s.

  45. miltonf

    How’s the climate emergency going?

  46. Up The Workers!

    Just goes to prove that Labor voters are all racists.

    They refuse to acknowledge that ALL lives matter – even those defenceless thousands secateured limb-from-limb in Leftard Abortion Abattoirs and Human Dismemberment Centres for the sake of “convenience” and private profit.

    That’s why decent people DON’T vote for the vermin.

    Adolph Hitler from the Nationalist SOCIALIST German Workers Party would be proud of them.

    Minneapolis Police only killed 1 (one) black man.

    The “Black Lives Matter” thieves, looters, shoplifters, arsonists, muggers, and murderers have so far murdered at least 7 (seven) innocent black male and female shopkeepers who were attempting to guard their shops, their stock and their livelihoods.

    B.L.M. thugs, murderers and cowards and disease-spreaders are therefore demonstrably 7 times worse than the killer-cops they are grizzling about.

  47. miltonf

    What’s the genesis of BLM? Manufactured, astroturfed for doubt.

  48. bad Samaritan

    OK, so a tiny handful of extreme leftist numbskulls are out and about. dure they are saying and doing silly things, but that’s what numbskulls do, isn’t it?

    While US cops are distracted, hundreds…..maybe thousands?…. of blacks are being murdered all across America by other blacks. i’m guessing the cops will let these black on black culls run their course, so what’s the problem with that exactly?

    Same here. while loads of dingbats are on the streets of the big cities virtue-signalling, car-loads of future-problems are being eliminated in places like Townsville. How is this a bad thing?

  49. The Sheriff

    How is Benjamin Law even permitted to continue a media career having openly threatened to rape people? Or is it another case of left/ethnic privilege at play?

  50. Bob

    Wha a moron “Benjamin Law” is. Somebody please explain to this uneducated dolt that Orwell’s “1984” is not an instruction manual.
