Smelly Reds Under Our Beds….

Gillard’s Jihad Against the Church

The smell of burning Christians:

Just who is the enemy here? Child abusers or the church?

These are cases dating back 20 and 50 years ago. What crimes will the commission actually stop, since it won’t investigate the worst abuse of children today – in Aboriginal communities?

Gillard’s royal commission into child sexual abuse in institutions is stoking a hot fire. The commission opened yesterday with ominous warnings that suggest the Catholic Church will be under serious ideological attack.— continued below the fold.  (Bolt)

Julia Gillard creates a monster:


The Department of Climate Change will be merged with the Industry Department and will become the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.

Add another one or two portfolios and she could call it “the government”.

That’s progress. “Let’s not just dwell in the past.”

Commie Revival:

Reds under the lecterns

It is astonishing that 24 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, we still have people demanding Marxism be given another try.

What’s with all them meat-hatin folks?

Note how many speakers at the Marxism 2013 conference are warehoused in our universities:

Gary [Foley] lectures in history at Victoria University…

Antony Loewenstein is …  a board member of Macquarie University’s Centre for Middle East and North African Studies.

Jeff Sparrow is … editor of the left wing journal Overland [sponsored by Victoria University].

Rick Kuhn … is a Reader in Politics at the Australian National University.

Diane Fieldes … teaches at the University of New South Wales.

Tom Bramble has been a socialist activist since the late 1970s. He is a senior lecturer in industrial relations at the University of Queensland.

Max Lane … is a now a member of the Revolutionary Socialist Party [and is alecturer at Victoria University].

Roz Ward is a delegate in the National Tertiary Education Union at La Trobe University.

Jane Kenway is a Professorial Fellow with the Australian Research Council, a Professor in the Education Faculty at Monash University and an elected Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences; Australia.

John [Passant] has been a socialist for over 30 years. He has worked in the Australian Tax Office and academia. [He tutors at the Australian National University.]

Susan Price is the current national co-convenor of the Socialist Alliance… A member of the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) for over 13 years, Susan was NTEU Branch President at the University of NSW from 2006-2008 and has been Branch Secretary since 2010

Such people teach our young.

At an earlier, spontaneous conference on applied Marxism – one attended not by university lecturers:


 Continued: Labor’s attack on the church

Royal commissioner Peter McClellan declared there had been “changes in power” in society, thanks in part to the “women’s movement” , and we should expect “changes in the culture and management practices of institutions”.

Was he referring to the church? Must it fit in more with these secular, feminist and even anti-clerical times? Incidentally, all three barristers assisting the commission are women.

True, McClellan will also investigate abuse in state-run institutions and even sporting clubs, but his commission will inevitably be influenced by a media-class culture that has a patricidal hatred of the Catholic Church to the exclusion of worse sinners.

Take comedian Josh Thomas on the ABC’s Q&A on Monday. Faced with a Catholic archbishop who opposed gay marriage, Thomas blustered for two minutes: “You play a constant game of stop hitting yourself . . . Sodom and Gomorrah. It’s pretty odd I reject that.”

On the same show was an imam who called homosexuality “a sin”. But to him, Thomas said nothing, even though some Muslim nations hang gays.

The ABC’s Lateline last November was warning enough of the cultural winds.

It interviewed Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox, who “helped trigger the Government’s plan for a royal commission” with claims of a church cover-up.

Those claims were denied, but Fox still denigrated Cardinal George Pell three times as “Mr Pell” and mocked his church’s “antiquated rules”.

Last month, The Age falsely said Pell was still “tainted” by a highly questionable allegation of sexual abuse – actually dismissed at a formal investigation.

The Age has apologised, but Melbourne lawyer Vivian Waller still won’t for falsely claiming Pell was present in Ballarat in 1969 when a child described being raped to another priest. In fact, Pell was then in Rome.

This commission may yet do good by allowing victims to “bear witness”, as McClellan suggested. Many were indeed betrayed by priests, albeit in most cases between 20 and 50 years ago.

But what crimes will the commission actually stop, since it won’t investigate the worst abuse of children today – in Aboriginal communities?

Just who is the enemy here? Child abusers or the church?

  1. The photo of the Berlin wall, captured the people who were forced to live within a Marxist society versus the Wackademics who live on dreams and idealism.

    There is nothing more pathetic and dangerous then cuddled Western communists who have never lived the life.

    Fools who are dangerous for the rest of us.

    1. “There is nothing more pathetic and dangerous then cuddled Western communists who have never lived the life.”

      Many of them lived the life and want more of it.

      The German government is literally hijacked by former Stasi operatives.

  2. You mean they were a part of the ruling elite seeking to regain there old power?

    I am not surprised, In many of the old Eastern bloc the new wealthy are the old Communist elite.

    My contempt is for indulged Westerners, who have never lived under communism and have or come from a level of wealth.
