waitingman: (Australia)
Further to yesterday's stupid & ignorant actions of Australia's own Monster Raving Loony Party, laughably calling itself 'One Nation', their so-called 'Leader' just had to go one better than her colleague, to prove that she's the most monstrous, loudest raving & looniest loony in the place...

So she wore a full burqa when she entered the Federal Senate chamber, before taking it off with a self-satisfied smirk & demanding that the Attorney General ban the garment in Australia... for "national security"

Our Attorney General, George Brandis (apparently a distant relation of mine, though I've never met him, nor do I want to) is not a very well-liked, nor overly respected public figure, having been at best ineffective in his role & at worst, a blathering idiot who can't even parrot stock phrases properly when the facts elude him. However, every blathering idiot has his day (Hi Donald!) & today was George's

He roundly, soundly & unequivocally berated the ignorant fuckwit for such a blinkered, divisive & frankly vulgar stunt & for being... well, an ignorant fuckwit. All in acceptable parliamentary language, of course, but we knew what he meant. So did the rest of the Senate, who gave him a standing ovation - something they probably thought they'd only do on the day he left office...

Maybe I should put him on the Christmas Card list this year after all...

* Unless something even worse happens...

What has happened is all too predictable. When you have a Commander-In-Chief who spouts racist & sexist rhetoric, as well as practising & defending it, who not only gets away with it, but revels in his impunity, then it's only a matter of not-much time before his supporters/disciples/fanclub/mindless masses begin to act the same way - because, after all, if it's good enough for the Boss, it's good enough for them. Right?

Right. In fact... far-right

Exhibit A

Oh America... we will miss you

Sorry for the radio silence over the last few months... I've fallen out of love with talking about myself & my life in general


However, I'll never get tired of talking about things like this... the relics of a bygone era who continue to poison the education & opinions of the modern world

For the-god-of-your-choice's sake... or for no god's sake at all if you prefer, I wish some people would either grow up or shut up. No other options are available

That goes for you too:~ Fred Nile, Alan Jones, Ray Hadley, John Laws, the entire 'Family First' political party, Clive Palmer, the entire US Republican party, Rupert Murdoch, Cardinal George Pell... you can take over from here, I'm sure
