How the Left cheered Gillard as she said she’d blown our cashÂ (Bolt)
Gillard has just revealed she’s completely buggered the nation’s books and blown billions she cannot repay, yet guests of a Left-wing think-tank congratulate her for doing “great work”, being “focused on the facts”, presenting a “very clear discussion” and, please, can you blow yet more money on solar?
So what now?
Who the hell are these people?
“Seeing the world not as it is, but as we would like it to be”:
A transition plan forÂ SyriaÂ (Bob Carr, asshat with a plan)
We need to secure commitments on a future democratic Syria subject to the rule of law.
“There must also be an absolute exclusion of extremist or jihadist elements such as al Qaida from any future Syrian government.
“I’ll be seeking international support for this four-point plan on Syria’s future, at these talks in Luxembourg today.
These people are insane.
Meanwhile, back in Oz, Zionhass is being covered with chocolate:
Jew-haters at uni, ranting at chocolatesÂ (Andrew Bolt)
“Anti-Zionism” is a polite way of describing what often seems no more than the old anti-Semitism – now nestling in the Left.
Peter Wertheim and Julie Nathan:
WHEN the University of NSW surveyed staff and students about which new stores they wanted on campus, a Max Brenner chocolate shop was the equal second most popular choice. This has not deterred the anti-Israel Students for Justice in Palestine UNSW from seeking to impose its own preferences on the rest of the campus community.
They accuse UNSW … of supporting “Israeli war crimes” and “apartheid”…
The Facebook page RALLY! Say no to Max Brenner at UNSW was set up by SJP via the Boycott Max Brenner at UNSW Facebook group…
The racist postings include a reference to “evil greedy money-loving nature of Jews”, and the claim that “Only news (that) Jews are happy with goes through via media”. Another post reverts to classical religious bigotry: “Of course I have a problem with Jews. You are not the cursed people and were not Banished from the holy land for nothing lol.” Non-Jews who defend Jews come in for opprobrium with the comment: “Tip rats = Jew lovers.”
An especially vicious post rails against “the dirtiest most evil people on earth using the holocaust to their advantage as leverage to establish the state of israel. it was all planned.”…
SJP has yet to ask itself why it provides a sympathetic home for naked Jew-hatred.
A shopkeeper was allegedly extorted, threatened, firebombed, bashed and eventually forced to sell his Bankstown juice bar for a pittance because a gang of Sunni Muslims suspected he supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
In a glimpse of how far tensions in Syria can affect life more than 14,000 kilometres away, Ali Issawi was subjected to a two-week campaign of threats and violence when his business was placed on a ‘’boycott tyranny’’ list on Facebook.
Â How South-Africans see the Gillard goose:
Interesting to see another view of Ms Gillard from a South African perspective.
In a dramatic coup on June 24 2010, Julia Gillard who was Deputy Prime Minister took over as Prime Minister from Kevin Rudd and became Australia’s first female PM. It occurred at a time Rudd was taking a battering in the polls and was not well liked within his own party.
Gillard is the first PM to be unmarried and a lesbian. She is in a relationship to Tim Mathieson – who is a “beard.” She is the first PM to be sworn in without making reference to God. (Gillard is an atheist and has no religious beliefs.) She was sworn in by Australia’s first female Governor General (Quentin Bryce.) Bryce has held numerous high offices with the aim of advancing women’s and “minority” rights at the expense of the Australia’s European majority. Bryce’s daughter is married to Bill Shorten who was pivotal in bringing Gillard into the office of PM.
When she was at high school, Gillard was mentored by the Jewish liberal (i.e. Communist) Marlene Pilowski. When she moved to Melbourne to attend university, she became the Education Vice President of the left wing (i.e. Communist) AUS (Australian Union of Students), and later was its President.
Gillard was in the Socialist Forum from her university days. The forum’s objectives were to create a socialist / feminist society through Labor governments. It originally consisted of ex-members of the Victorian branch of the Communist Party and some ALP members. Gillard was one of the two original paid organizers of the Forum. She wrote numerous documents for the Socialist Forum including ‘Being a Socialist Teacher’ and ‘Future Directions of the Left’. It was also through the Forum that she met Labor heavy-weight Joan Kirner and worked closely with her on Labor’s Affirmative Action Plan. Gillard wrote the constitution for the pro-abortion feminist organization EMILY’s List (in Australia), which supports “progressive” Labor women.
In 2006, when in opposition, Gillard voted for legalizing the abortion pill RU486 and for stem cell research, which both became law. In March 2010, when she was Education Minister, Senator Ron Boswell said that “Julia Gillard’s new [education] curriculum reads like a learners manual for international socialism”.
As PM, Gillard has tried to assuage Australians by painting herself as a moderate. She has also distanced herself from Rudd, who had become the fall-guy for a bad government. Gillard however should take more blame as she was one of the “gang of 4” that made the decisions. She was directly behind the Building Education Revolution (BER) scandal over building unneeded overpriced schools.
In less than three years, the Labor Government has gone from a 20 billion dollar surplus (left by Howard) to 148 billion debt, and is borrowing an extra $150 million every day. The common theme in Federal and State politics is that Labor governments create massive debt, and the Conservatives (Liberal / National party governments) pay that debt off. The main point though is missed – governments shouldn’t be borrowing or repaying money from off-shore lenders in the first place.
Before holding the next general election (probably this year), Gillard will have to straighten out 3 key policy areas. She compromised on the mining tax, which was originally introduced by Rudd to pay off debt. With her dodgy projection figures, she claimed it would bring the budget back into the black, but this is unlikely.
The second issue, that of the “boat people”. Boat arrivals have increased at over 50 times the rate under Howard because of Rudd’s loose regulations. Boat people are considered queue jumpers. Gillard said that they will be processed in East Timor although there is no centre there. She is ignoring the centre already built at Nauru. Gusmao, the PM of East Timor claims he wasn’t consulted and didn’t want a centre in his country.
The third issue is the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS.) Rudd initially pushed it hard, but it was defeated in the Senate. The average Australian didn’t really understand what it was, but many have since woken up that it is essentially a big expense which will affect ordinary people. The ETS is not about saving the environment so much as social change and the redistribution of wealth.
Gillard who has painted herself to be a bit of a non-scary moderate, is red at the centre. The media distracts and woos the dumb masses with news about her latest haircuts, etc (her gay boyfriend Mathieson is a hairdresser.) It is her aim however to re-engineer society, but years of the Left’s influence in Labor governments, education and the media has already done that.
As PM, Gillard just looks like another version of Rudd. Pretending to listen to the people, she instead pushes the NWO agenda. Being a non-religious 50 year old woman in a de-facto relationship is nothing unusual in Australia anymore. Gillard simply mirrors what Australia already is, while helping to push it ever closer to extinction in the name of ‘tolerance’.
