If Stalinism is “progressive”, then what do we call the ABC?
Not one of the ABC’s main current affairs shows on TV or radio is hosted by a conservative. Every host of ABC TV’s “Media Watch” in its 24 year history has been of the political Left.
A billion dollars per annum is what we are Â paying for the pond scum of the Australian Left to run the socialist propaganda unit that the ABC is today.Â Paul Syvret from the Courier Mail involuntarily tells much truth in his satirical article Â that is supposed to crack you up. Â But its more likely to make you choke.
The ABC promptly finds a sucker (Craig Laundy) who tells us we should switch channels if we don’t like it. Trouble is, there are no channels……
ABC has ‘a contract with the Australian people’ says Liberal MP
They certainly do, but they don’t honour it. “Fair & Balanced” is hardcore commie prop 24/7 for these cretins.

Liberal MP Craig Laundy saysÂ although many people do criticise how the ABC reports on stories, the broadcaster has a right to speak freely as a fundamental part of our democracy.
An extraordinary way for an ABC reporter to soft-soap Pete Seeger’s support for a bloody tyranny led by Joseph Stalin:
ASHLEY HALL: This is Pete Seeger performing at the Melbourne Town Hall in 1963. Originally recorded by his band the Weavers, If I Had a Hammer is one of his best known works. He wrote it with band mate Lee Hays in 1949 and the first time they performed it was atÂ a testimonial dinner for the leaders of the Communist Party – just one example of Pete Seeger’s commitment to progressive politics.
A party preaching a totalitarian creed and pledging loyalty to Stalin’s RussiaÂ is an example of “progressive” politics?
On it goes:
ASHLEY HALL: His commitment to progressive politics saw him nearly landed in jail at one point. What happened there?
ALLAN WINKLER: In the 1950s when Joseph McCarthy and the anti-communist crusade got under way, he was tarred as having been a member of the Communist Party.
Pardon? Seeger was not “tarred as having been a member of the Communist Party”. He actuallyÂ wasÂ a member of that party, which was loyal to the Soviet Union at a time when Stalin was killing dissidents, deporting entire communities, jailing writers and imprisoning millions in gulags.Â
Would I be wrong in considering this just one more pixel in a picture of ABC Leftism?
Another pixel. Of course the ABC isn’t biased, It’s just that ABC hosts such as Jonathan Green, whoÂ hung a John Howard pinata from his tree on election day in 2007, believes a conservative like me is actually on the ”stratospheric right”.
Yes, the ABC isn’t biased and only rotten conservatives would think so.
