Toxic treatment of women by Labor and the left

SA Liberal MP Nicolle Flint.

In its ongoing series of attacks on the Federal Coalition, today The Australian comes up with this: Toxic Canberra too much for MP Nicolle Flint. Here is the gist of it in their own words:

Ms Flint — who was hounded, stalked, and labelled a slut and a prostitute in the vicious 2019 campaign in the South Australian seat of Boothby — has decided she can no longer tolerate the pressures of political life as a female MP….

“I did not put up my hand so I could be the sole candidate ­heckled, mocked and shouted down by GetUp, Labor and union members at community meetings,” Ms Flint told parliament. “I did not put up my hand so my election posters could be defaced with the words ‘skank’ and ‘blow and go’, suggesting I was a prostitute charging $60 an hour.”

Of course, given the nature of The Australian and its entirely anti-government left agenda, these two statements are 16 paragraphs apart. Go to the link and count them for yourself.

    Hypocrisy and the left….. but I repeat myself.

  2. H B Bear says:

    I still struggle with why anybody would want to be a politician.

  3. Frank says:

    Why is she wearing a bin bag?

  4. Roger says:

    I still struggle with why anybody would want to be a politician.

    It’s a vocation that should only be sought by men (and some women) of a certain age with measurable achievements in genuine fields of endeavour (that would exclude much of trade unionism and party political hackery) that have benefitted the common weal. Their children should preferably be grown and their marriages stable.

    Unhappily for us, we appear to have precisely the opposite arrangement.

    You must be skilled, productive, morally sane and lack a need for narcissistic supply.

  6. calli says:

    Why is she wearing a bin bag?

    Because she was treated like garbage.

  7. chrism says:

    the political use of the stalking horse of sexual misconduct allegations, and real crimes, dates from at least Salome :

    Kavanaugh had the drama play out to a packed audience that were there to resist his appointment

    the Profumo scandal had some elements of this drama too

    such historical experiences make valid pleas for justice more difficult to assess

    Scomo should invite Nicolle Flint to head a panel of investigative advisors that can address how to appropriately manage sex, power and politics : call the report Lysistrata redux

    LYSISTRATA
    There are a lot of things about us women
    That sadden me, considering how men
    See us as rascals.

    CALONICE
    As indeed we are!

  8. entropy says:

    What Roger said is what it should be.

    However, if you are a young sociopath with a huge lump of narcissism and a desire to manipulate and control others, all of whom you consider not as bright as yourself, the incredibly generous salaries and myriad additional benefits available at a very young age are very attractive and only require five years or so sucking up to the right factional leadership.

  9. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Why is she wearing a bin bag?

    A hypocritical sexist collectivist slug (BIRM) laid into her for dressing in a feminine manner and the garbage bag outfit was a prop in a nice little video response to the aforementioned knobhead.

    I’ve met Nicolle Flint, she’s a lovely woman (err, for a gliberal). Her treatment at the hand of various collectivist misogynist creeps was an absolute disgrace.

  10. BrettW says:

    One of the articles about her mentioned Extinction Rebellion protesting at her office two weeks ago and painting on office windows.

    Anybody know if any police charges laid for criminal damage ?

  11. Forester says:

    The trade union party can’t run on it’s record, so it has to keep kicking any anti-socialist dissent.

    They’ll have a whinge about how few women there are in the Liberal Party front bench a month out from the election.

  12. Damon says:

    “Why is she wearing a bin bag?”
    Hopefully, because it will become a fashion statement, and every married man will be relieved of trying to invent compliments for truly dreadful apparel, and will have more money to spend at the pub.

  13. Tom says:

    The problem with the “story” is that it was “reported” by Mr Kate Ellis, a political partisan — flushing the Paywallian’s credibilility as a news source down the toilet.

    Why was the “reporting” left to a partisan with a dog in the fight?

  14. Professor FredLenin says:

    If we limited tem to one senate term or two reps terms thatwoukd take the career option out of it a lot woud go into selling used cars and dodgy realestate ,where they do less harm . That ruling woulsapply to statesand local councils ,time in those positionswould count againsat federal or state positions .

  15. Professor FredLenin says:

    PS just imagine the US without the likes of paedo biden ,botox nance ,Nappy nadler ,Shitty schiff , Shyster schumer , be amuch healthier environment

  16. Ed Case says:

    The woman who made [historical] Buggery allegations against a Cabinet Minister rang Birmo last year and he allegedly told her “can’t talk to you, perhaps ring 1800 RESPECT” or words to that effect.
    She subsequently suicided.
    That’s on the Guardian Australia, so it’s agitprop, but if true, is exceptionally callous.

  17. Adelelagado says:

    Why is she wearing a bin bag?

    Because a few months ago her dress sense was criticized by a pompous gay windbag ABC Adelaide LEFTY radio presenter. Her response was to say “Is this what you would prefer me in Peter?” She made a video about it. Its probably on Youtube. It was quite a big story in SA.

  19. jupes says:

    … these two statements are 16 paragraphs apart.

    Not being interested enough to keep up to date on SFL shinanegans, I was only aware of of this story via headlines and one line radio ‘news’ announcements.

    No one here would be surprised that until I read this post, I had been under the impression that it was the Liberals who were having a go at her.

    Despicable propaganda as usual.

  20. Adelagado says:

    The heading about ‘Toxic Canberra’ is totally misleading. The article is entirely about her disgusting treatment by far left groups in SA.

  21. Rusty of Qld says:

    Boys and girls if you are going into politics you are going into a war that is win at all costs. You have to harden up like the old boys e.g. Sinclair, Black Jack McEwen
    , Menzies etc, Latham’s not bad. You have to get in the ring and fight, fight like hell which is not what the piss weak Liberals of today are capable of, or a too stupid to do.
    Dig up dirt, throw mud get in the fight or you get knocked out. Wishful thinking, I know.

  22. Bushkid says:

    It’s always the toxic left and leftist journalists and their hangers on who do this stuff.
    No one hates as well as the left!

  23. Clam Chowdah says:

    Why was the “reporting” left to a partisan with a dog in the fight?

    He declared his affiliation and was very even handed. You’re in error.

  24. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “and he allegedly told her “can’t talk to you, perhaps ring 1800 RESPECT” or words to that effect.
    She subsequently suicided.”

    Oh dear Dick Ed…you’re treading on egg shells. If your “story” is correct, then Birmingham “allegedly” gave her the right advice.

    So now we have Dick Ed trying to blame this woman’s suicide on another member of parliament.

    Back to your basement.

  25. Ed Case says:

    That’s one of the problems for Democracies and Republics:
    groups like GetUp and CFFMEU & ETU organisers can ShowUp at the Booths and make life miserable for female volunteers.
    Remember the 2010 campaign when some dropkick provoked a pensioner volunteer for Wyatt Roy to throw a punch at him in front of the cameras.
    It was on the News all over Australia, Roy had to disavow him and the LNP cancelled his Membership.
    Fair enough, you can’t go around punching annoying people, but the Electoral Commission does nothing to keep order either.

  26. Cassie of Sydney says:

    David Penberthy might be married to Kate Ellis but his journalism has always been pretty even handed. I have never found him to be highly partisan.

    Penberthy’s brutal takedown of KRudd late last year was sublime.

  27. Strayan Drongo says:

    They are so busy trying to make out the LNP has a problem with women, when it’s the left that bully everyone and this is another perfect example.

  28. Ed Case says:

    It’s on Guardian Australia, Cassie, so if i’m treading on eggshells then so are they.
    Some here are intent on painting all who raise questions about Liberal MPs and Staffers breaking the Law as ratbags, which I find odd
    The Liberal position as I understand it, is to barrack for the Truth, not for the side.
    Barracking for the side is the Labor position, decidedly unAustralian, in my opinion.

  29. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Some here are intent on painting all who raise questions about Liberal MPs and Staffers breaking the Law as ratbags, which I find odd”

    Because most are ratbags Dick Ed…..much like you.

  30. Cassie of Sydney says:

    What Flint endured at the hands of GetUp during the 2018 election was a disgrace.

  31. Boambee John says:

    Adelagado

    pompous windbag ABC Adelaide LEFTY

    Tautological to the third power. Just say ABC Adelaide, the rest is automatic.

  32. Ed Case says:

    ***They are so busy trying to make out the LNP has a problem with women***
    The LNP only exist in Qld politics, in Canberra it’s the Liberal Party.
    But yeah, they have 2 Women Problems.
    One is nasty women like Linda Reynolds and Michaela Cash, representing the State of W.A..
    The other is women hating male Cabinet Ministers, there appears to be quite a few of them too.
    So, the push for more women in Canberra is a joke, all you end up with is women like Plibersek and Reynolds, incompetents that you wouldn’t give the time of day to.

  33. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Ed Case says:
    February 27, 2021 at 4:52 pm”

    Dick Ed……your trolling is becoming quite tedious. You’re obsessed…I know you’re getting off on it. You need to have a cold shower or something…..go away and polish something in your basement.

  34. Ed Case says:

    **So now we have Dick Ed trying to blame this woman’s suicide on another member of parliament.***
    You’re making claims about things i’ve never said now.
    Birmo could have no idea what she was going to do, his response was just callous.
    Callousness is par for the course in dealing with Labor Senators, but it’s a new low for the Liberal Party.

  35. Mother Lode says:

    She is probably wishing she had joined a party at would fight back when one of theirs was attacked unfairly by the likes of SodOff! Or MSM editors.

  36. H B Bear says:

    Roger at 1.28 – or possibly the Ancient Greek model.

    Almost by definition anyone seeking a career in politics should be told to fuck off and get a real job. The trouble is most have no skills and few prospects without continued patronage.

  37. H B Bear says:

    Unhappily for us, we appear to have precisely the opposite arrangement.

    Yes they continue playing undergraduate politics in Minister’s offices until they are r a p e d or get preselection.

  38. Daily llama says:

    This video should work. The ALPBC radio announcer she mentions is mere vermin- his exorbitant salary paid by you, of course. But that’s socialism!

    Into the fray then, dover!

    😉

  41. areff says:

    if true, is exceptionally callous.

    First, she actually got through to a minister and spoke to him in person. Not easy to do, so taking her call was a kindness in itself.

    What else was Birmingham expected to do but refer her to a body specifically established to address her specific concerns? Think about it: he has a fruitcake on the line ranting and sniffling about an alleged attack in 1988. Get on his white horse and sally forth to smite the alleged evildoer?

    Actually, she was favoured. Birmingham as Education Minister, so far as I know, never bothered to have a conversation with Peter Ridd, instead praising the academic carbuncles who drove him out of James Cook while lavishing more cash on that unworthy institution.

  42. Squirrel says:

    I hope Nicolle’s valedictory speech makes absolutely clear the details of what has driven her out of politics – particularly the hypocritical thuggishness of the “whatever it takes” Left.

  43. Ed Case says:

    ***First, she actually got through to a minister and spoke to him in person. Not easy to do, so taking her call was a kindness in itself.***
    Wasn’t she speaking to him as Senator for South Australia?
    It wasn’t the first time they’d spoken, so Birmo knew she wasn’t a ratbag lost in her own fantasy life and he may have known that Turnbull was taking her seriously.
    He gave her the brush off.
    I’d say the Liberals do have serious problems with the way they handle allegations of sexual assault, they cover it up and kick the can down the road.
    Some may shriek “Whaddabout Shorten!”, or half a hundred other Labor weirdoes, but that’s not the issue.
    Adopting the Labor Standard on anything means adopting no standard at all.

    Kathy Sherriff
    others that remain suppressed, for the good of Albo et al

    I don’t see that politicians can offer rape crisis counselling, STD advice, legal advice, criminal investigation, vigilantism or other direct help

    Developing OH&S and building security and working on the overall culture remains the job of all parliamentarians, which should be non-partisan – the issue is these revelations are targeted to politically damage, under cover of allegedly addressing the parliament issues – like the hot potato of judicial misbehaviour, it requires an external independent agency to resolve – like say the AFP

  45. Old Lefty says:

    Let’s not forget that the ABC’s pinup pervert, the Marxist pervert Richard Neville (of hurricane f****ing a cherubic fourteen year old girl picked up in her uniform outside the school gate and promoting pederasty on the ABC’s Lateline fame) described a pack r0pe of a girl in New York’s Central Park as a jolly good hang bang lark. If you can hold your stomach, Play Power (1970) makes for a very interesting read: it shows what the pubic left are really about.

  46. Old Lefty says:

    ‘gang’ not ‘hang’.

  47. Ed Case says:

    They’ve already got watchdogs coming out the Wazoo.
    The AFP was informed [by the security guards].
    They are supposed to inform the Home Affairs Minister of politically sensitive events.
    At the moment, Dutton says he wasn’t informed until February this year, 22 months later.
    Morrison says he didn’t hear the details until February 15 this year, nearly 23 months after the Security Guards told the AFP.
    Fiona Brown, now on Morrison’s staff, but then on Linda Reynolds staff, handled the matter back in March 2019.
    So, all the Protocols are in place, all the watchdogs are well fed, yet the system still failed Brittany Higgins and the general public..

  48. Lee says:

    Some may shriek “Whaddabout Shorten!”, or half a hundred other Labor weirdoes, but that’s not the issue.

    So turn a blind a eye to malfeasance by Labor MPs?
    How nice and convenient for them.

    Adopting the Labor Standard on anything means adopting no standard at all.

    So conservatives should just turn the other cheek, shut up and cop it?
    Bullshit!
    Conservatives have been doing that for far too long.

    I think your interest is attacking Morrison
    I think most people can see the partisan slime for what it is, particularly when it is one sided MSM wise
    I don’t think the horrorshow will get Albo over the line & it has sunk Shorten’s return from zombieland & what Plibbers does with her own hot-potato time will tell …

    Because there is a group of 5th column cuckservatives that would rather lose in a “fair” fight (and betray their side) than realize that their pragmatic political opponents aren’t fighting fair.

  51. Dot says:

    The more you think about politicians, the more appealing sortition and ostracism are.

  52. m0nty says:

    The Australian and its entirely anti-government left agenda

    LOL.

  53. cuckoo says:

    Nine ran a piece of footage I hadn’t seen, showing Flint walking in a public place and being stalked at very close range by three ‘males’ with lefty protest signs who were clearly verbally abusing her. One of them towered over her. She kept her cool. Do any ‘feminists’ have anything to say about this behaviour? Or are they busy hectoring men who take up ‘too much’ space on public transport.

    Nine’s take on this was that a woman being driven out of politics by leftist abuse…is a bad look for Scott Morrison

  54. Bad Samaritan says:

    rich (4.24am). Geez, you’re taking this far too seriously. 99% of voters know it’s all BS, and 99% of your 5th column cuckservatives know they know it too, So why the need to interrupt the enemy ALP while they are busily shooting themselves in the foot?

    Let the chattering classes chatter. Why waste any energy “refuting” what everybody already understands to be fake-news?

  55. Andre Lewis says:

    While we all want to punish anyone who assaults or rapes a woman there has to be a rational and timely way to do this. First an alleged assault needs to be reported and dealt with shortly after it was claimed to happen. Leaving it to 30 and 40 years, or even two years later means it is impossible to investigate it meaningfully. One is entitled to ask if it was so disturbing why it took so long to bring it up and get justice. More disturbing in this latest Wong and Green idiot SHY claim is why it suddenly surfaces just at the same time as the rape allegation in the Defence Minister’s office. Lets be clear – this is an ALP/Greens pile on for blatantly political purposes and not about the women.

  56. Snotball says:

    And thus the left win again. The silent majority is still silent while the noisy minority get the gurnsey. No doubt the seat will now go to labor or the greens and another brick will be knocked out of the wall of the sane and the normal! We are absolutely rooted! And we have let it happen! Bit by bit we have given away everything that was decent and virtuous and allowed the rot to creep in!

  57. Struth says:

    Did she think they were going to play nice before she got into politics?
    Are only women hounded by the left?
    Tony Abbott had a bunch of Marxist Abo race baiting activists get sent to attack him at a restaurant, Howard was punched, Andrew Bolt physically attacked.
    She got called names and had a stalker, who was caught.
    The left are violent and evil. If you are not willing to fight that, go home.

  58. Snotball says:

    Struth is correct. However as witnessed in the States a riot by left wing cretins has the police taking a knee and the media reporting it as a peaceful gathering. Should a group on the right even dare to express an opinion that is not woke the full force of the law will be vested upon them. All of our institutions have been captured by the left.

    geezus mate, I’m probably the most sexist person at the Cat but even I understand why women wouldn’t want to divulge the fact that they have been raped.
    In fact it is men who are most likely to not report being raped hence internalising the shame anger and pain all their lives.

    There are better ways to deal with these difficult and sensitive issues other than to say “suck it up love, you should have come out earlier.”

  60. Mick Gold Coast QLD says:

    This Nicole sheila is having us all on, she has been in the Parliament for about 3½ weeks and already it has been all too much for her. I had a look in Wikipedia to discover she has no husband, no parents and didn’t go to school.

    She claims experience as a solicitor, a newspaper scribbler and a long time camp follower and member of the Liberal organisation. All that experience equipped her to become a wise “advisor” – so young – to Stumbull and Brendan Nelson. I did find she was a bed wetter who worshiped at the feet of the small of stature Lord Wentworth.

    Yet with all that she was incapable of sending a message to people who were verbally horrid to her that she would be happy to have some big blokes around to enquire about their problem. A modest few hours per week in a Hindley Street sandwich shop now beckons.

    Wymminses have never had it so good – I walked down the corridors of a hospital last week and was astonished at the posters on display advising of legislation, regulation, protective processes and agencies available to help the immature, feeble and dependent to negotiate life its very self.

    The wymminses from South Australia are historically quite useless and deceitful as politicians – Lees, Haines, Spot de Spoiler, that Wong chap, Ellis (who lasted three times longer than her teenage schoolgirl manner deserved because of long legs and decent tits) Our Sarah who is Just Lovely and so on.

    In the same week as the Minister for Manly Violent Response to Enemy Invasion ran away from icky things, all the way to hospital (and was dumped on by a minor office girlie functionary who she had been comforting after drinking too much) I am reminded that just a couple of years ago the US Senate was presenting half century old accusations of rope as entertainment for the masses, with grave questioning of a Blasey-Ford (Americanese for lying liar), banging of gavels and deep analysis by CNN / Fox / NBC / NBA / CCCP and SportsUSA to keep those advertising dollars rolling in.

    The whole carnival was about politics, money and power. How any female with a brain can expect these modern attacks of hysteria and blame to be taken seriously is a mystery.

  61. Ed Case says:

    ***So conservatives should just turn the other cheek, shut up and cop it?
    Bullshit!
    Conservatives have been doing that for far too long.
    ***
    What are you even talking about?
    Wong says a Cabinet Minister committed a crime back in 1988 and the only witness has since died.
    Okay, that’s politics, let’s wait for Wong to name the person and put some evidence forward.
    It’s Wong’s story, let her run it.
    Otherwise, it’s another Labor NothingBurger.

  62. C.L. says:

    Did she think they were going to play nice before she got into politics?
    Are only women hounded by the left?

    Right. As tempting as a they-did-it-too always is, this one doesn’t interest me.

    Come to that, it doesn’t interest me if women of either party persuasion stay out of politics. Good.

  63. Louis Litt says:

    This is a shame. Decent girl. Decent behaviour, code and example for females.
    The treatment dished out to her was disgusting. The meeja just pissed themselves laughing at what was done to her. The lefties are peaceful and compassionate – deros at the back of public transport who bash one person. These people are’nt intellectuals, just derelict.
    Why is jimmy barnes on [email protected] – is it because he used to bash people weaker than him for no reason

  64. rich says:

    Let the chattering classes chatter. Why waste any energy “refuting” what everybody already understands to be fake-news?

    Let’s hope you are right. Regression to the mean isn’t on the side of common sense, as the US has shown.
