Winston Smith’s World

Whenever the Left says something violent it is always “taken out of context”. Whenever conservatives urge peaceful protest it is always “coded language”. Or simply put in MSM/bureaucrat and academic-speak, the Right’s speech is ‘violence’ whereas the Left’s violence is ‘speech’.”

    The Left never faces consequences.

  2. Rex Anger says:

    You forgot to mention nuance!

    Apart from that, can I nominate John’s comment as a Liberty Quote?

    Liberty Quote
    Nothing can be more abhorrent to democracy than to imprison a person or keep him in prison because he is unpopular. This is really the test of civilization.

    After our lives in media, we have given up on credibility there. If you think it is sick from the outside, the inside is worse than sickening it is toxic and foul for people who have a skerrick of logic and principle.

    Many of us have retreated to the sidelines to watch and wait.

    Yep…the left gets a free pass….this weekend the police broke up anti-mask protesters at a Westfield in Sydney. Wonder whether they’ll break up the “Invasion Day” demonstrations planned on Tuesday? Doubt it…another free pass.

  6. Gorilla Dance Party says:

    They know this and they don’t care.

    This is ineffective rhetoric for dealing with leftists.

    The deliberate misuse of language to deceive was the hallmark of the first rebel against legitimate authority..

    It is even trickier than this.
    You are not even allowed to quietly disengage.

    Remember: White silence is violence

  9. Snotball says:

    I once had some sympathy for homosexuals, climate advocates, greenies and probably would have once taken a knee as long as the protesting was peaceful. The left has destroyed all that in me – as soon as I hear the words “activist” or “protester” my hackles go up regardless of any value there maybe in the cause. I can’t of cause speak out or I will be cancelled. I feel powerless and my only recourse is the ballot box. Trouble is there isn’t much variety there either. What are we to do?

    Under Capitalism man exploits his fellow man.

    Whereas under Communism it’s quite the other way around.

  11. maree says:

    Quality insight, Tel. The left will be scratching their heads.

  12. Tel says:

    maree: It’s not my insight … I think it originally came from the Soviets although often attributed to John Kenneth Galbraith.

    “Australia Day ‘inappropriate’ for ABC staff”
    Our taxes pay for these people?

  14. gavalanche says:

    the left is born out of the idea of making of love an active principle, which is why it ends up as hate.
    you can’t force people to love, if you do u sow the seeds of resentment. jesus’ all-encompassing love was a by-product of his realness…he also knew how to lose his cool….compassion does not exist outside of truth, it is a consequence of it. truth activates the wisdom of the heart – love is receptivity…love is not an act, except when you get some action.
    the beatles were wrong
    love is not all you need
    love is a by-product of being real

  15. herodotus says:

    ABC declares Australia Day is “Invasion Day”.
    There’s nowhere sensible that one can go from there.
    Australia, USA, all gone full retard,

  16. The not very bright Marcus says:

    Not sure which commenter said it , and I like it ….but I for one would like to celebrate invasion day …a day when our refugee ancestors sailed upon and conquered this great land and with good humility even allowed the vanquished to live within the new powerful overlords civilization… although …I think the original owners should really have allocated more resources to defence

  17. Entropy says:

    So if we invaded does that mean we conquered? What does that mean for things like land title?

  18. The Sheriff says:

    Federal Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said the terminology used by the ABC was ultimately a matter for the broadcaster.

    “The Morrison government’s position on Australia Day is very clear,” Mr Fletcher said. “The position taken by the ABC is a matter for which the ABC must take accountability, as the ABC, by statute, has editorial independence from government.”

    This is why the Liberal Party is a joke and Paul Fletcher is an oxygen thief. We might as well have a Green Government if Fletcher is what passes as a Liberal.

    The left only face consequences when they disown their own. Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, Mussolini, Hitler, the list is longer than you might think. They are however shameless in pretending they were never leftists when they kick them out of the nest.

    MEDIA
    Australia Day ‘inappropriate’ for ABC staff
    The ABC has defended its decision to officially refer to January 26 as ‘Invasion Day’ in its coverage of Australia Day celebrations.
    By STEVE JACKSON

    OK, they can do that but they had better go and see about all those “Welcome to Country” ceremonies. Because the invaders WON, they STAYED and we don’t need to be welcomed (any more, or ever).

    Ahem, also, victorious invaders don’t have to pay reparations or sign treaties with the losers (that’s what the ABC decision necessarily yields as the definition of the previous incumbents).

  21. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld says:

    The Communistic ABC are a disgrace to our nation. On almost everything there is an attack on our heritage, our people, our soldiers, our conservatives, etc, etc. Come on Australia, time to get some action to get rid of this disgusting organisation. Anyone up to starting a petition to disband the whole thing. Quite simply, they hate us ordinary Australians. our nation, basically all our people apart from the loony left and everything decent we have.

  22. Lrp says:

    Start the petition to privatise ABC

    100%

    Allocate? No.

    As is common with tribal peoples warriors already made up a large portion of the population.

    What they needed was more resources to begin with. And tech. You know, the kind of stuff the invaders brought with them.

    Boris Johnson should free Julian Assange but then Boris is not fit to shine Churchill’s shoes.

    We do have a green government, Liberals are green with envy that they are not quick enough to think of these stupidities.

  27. John Comnenus says:

    And the Democrats will never lose another election after Pelosi’s for the people act that removes voter ID requirements, allows mass mail in voting, ballot harvesting, DC Statehood etc. Apparently that is what is in Pelosi’s “For the people Act”.

    Like I said, the Democrats will never lose another “election”. The USA will be “democratic” in the same way that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (aka North Korea) is Democratic, and US constitutional rights will be observed in a similar way to the People’s Republic of China – as it will be written in a beautiful Constitution and law that will only ever be available to the elite.

    The Democrats destroyed America with the active support of the GOP establishment. I am still waiting for anyone to tell me one dictatorial law Trump passed.

  28. Ed Case says:

    There’s probably a few in there, the average Bill run s to 5,000 pages now.
    One bad thing he did was appoint the compromised Brett [I wrote the Patriot Act for Bush] Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That won’t end well for Liberty.

    Great comment.

  32. I never said most of this shit.
