He’s “one of Australia’s most experienced commentators”
THE Democrat Party of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden spent every single day of the past four years refusing to concede the 2016 election. They illegally paid Russian spies for forged documents alleging an incoming President was a compromised sexual pervert; they illegally lied to the FISA court; they illegally spied on the opposition party’s leader and his advisers; they lied to prosecute General Mike Flynn; they lied about a Supreme Court nominee being a gang rapist. These are not claims. They’re historical facts. During the northern summer, Democrats went even further: they deliberately stoked a rolling wave of domestic terrorism that has left dozens dead – men, women and children – and billions of dollars of property destroyed. Throughout this season of treason without precedent (at least since a Democrat celebrity shot Abraham Lincoln in 1865), Alan Kohler didn’t notice anything was awry. But today he’s filled with rage:
Without evidence, the business “editor-at-large” of The Australian is saying Donald Trump plans to mobilise troops to kill Americans in coming weeks. This is the deranged rhetoric of an ANTIFA loon. The truth is more admirable – which is why Kohler preferred the big lie. Trump was elected on a platform of bringing US troops home from failed, lost wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan. This policy – the democratically expressed will of Americans – has been stymied by the Endless War lobby that bankrolls so many members of the senatorial class in Washington. This is what real sedition looks like. This is what “right-wing” donor-driven fascism looks like. Kohler’s more general argument is no less batty. Pursuing his rights at law to ensure every vote counts is the President’s lawful prerogative; to call this sedition is to assert the courts are now illegitimate and their place in governance now suspended. Formerly a middling quality broadsheet but now collapsing under the weight of its crowded opinion penthouse, is The Australian so bereft of a collegiate ethos that nobody thought to counsel Kohler not to publish something this wacko and embarrassing?
