Ita Buttrose has come up with the dopiest justification yet for wasting $1 billion every year on our bloated leftist broadcaster. According to the ABC chair, it protects us from “right-wing extremism”.
Will the ABC ever be ready for a conservative?
‘We’ve been let down’ by the so called centre-right who ‘won’t fight for free speech’
Sky News host Rowan Dean says “we have been let down so dramatically” by so-called centre-right parties who “will not fight for free speech”. “The Morrison or Turnbull government flirted around for a while about guaranteeing free speech in universities and of course did nothing,” he said. “I’m glad Boris Johnson is doing it; I hope that free speech applies when someone stands up at his ridiculous COP26 conference later in the year and tells him he is absolutely full of nonsense on his climate crusade. “Free speech is critical to get the right opinions out there, to get people fed the information and knowledge to make sensible decisions. The moment you say, you can’t criticise that thing, you’re in trouble.”
Warning graphic but real language that may offend ;
In the end, the whole conflict is not as complex as it sometimes seems. Here is what senior Hamas official Fathi Hammad said on May 7th:
“People of Jerusalem, we want you to cut off the heads of the Jews with knives. With your hand, cut their artery from here. A knife costs five shekels. Buy a knife, sharpen it, put it here and just cut off (their heads). It costs just five shekels. With those five shekels, you will humiliate the Jewish state. … The Jews have spread corruption and have acted with arrogance, and their moment of reckoning has come. The moment of their destruction at your hands has arrived.”
Note that the enemy is not Israel, but Jews. Wherever Jews have “spread their corruption”, their “moment of destruction has arrived”.
This is a Hamas senior leader, not some street thug. There were no discernible voices of Palestinian condemnation. There was no horrified outcry.
Imagine if any Jewish leader had proposed doing the same to Arabs. First: it is almost impossible to envisage anybody recognized as a Jewish leader issuing such a call because attacking the innocent runs counter to everything Judaism stands for. Second: if any Jew were to utter such sentiments, the chorus of repudiation from across the Jewish spectrum would be deafening.
Excuse me, but I will take a pass on this one. I’m not going to be injected with a toxic cocktail of gene-altering drugs that make me sick or kill me.
I’ll be taking my chances. Thanks but no thanks.
‘Breakthrough’ COVID-19 infections in fully vaccinated people are to be expected, CDC and medical experts say
With the recent high-profile infections post-vaccination of Bill Maher and members of the Yankees, COVID-19 “breakthrough” cases have come to the forefront. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphasized that available vaccines have “proven effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths” and that breakthrough cases, like with other vaccines, are expected.
Prince Harry, husband of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has lamented the “genetic pain” of his upbringing and compared royal life to being a zoo animal.
He complained of the media “feeding frenzy” he experienced while living in Tyler Perry’s mansion and hinted that he did not appreciate the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech and freedom of the press in America, saying:
Not everyone in academia has guzzled the lunatic left Kool-Aid in exchange for the possibility of advancement. A few still remain to be purged — like Nicholas Giordano of Suffolk County Community College, who warns that the anti-American orientation of college education is rotting away the foundations of our country.
The brainwashing students undergo downgrades individual liberty in favor of Big Government, equality in favor of equity, and an American perspective in favor of globalist objectives.
Via Summit News, Giordano sounds the alarm on Tucker Carlson Today:
Speaking truth to moonbattery like Giordano is not the way to achieve career success in the woke world of academia.

When David de Carvalho, CEO of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) announced that he had given the national curriculum the ‘Marie Kondo’ treatment, he raised hopes. Had ACARA really thrown out all the meaningless mumbo jumbo? It seemed unlikely.
ACARA is a creation of the Rudd government, imbued with the Jacobin spirit of centralised social engineering. Its staff are generously remunerated but they write as if as they were paid by the word. Circumlocution is their lodestar.
Embarking on their latest effort provoked an unwelcome sense of déjà vu. Post-modern prolixity abounds. Children don’t read and write, they ‘construct meaning’ and ‘create texts’. ‘Critical perspectives are formed’ when they ‘make meaning from literature based on engaging with aspects of the text’.

‘The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020,’ they wrote.”
More than 120 retired generals and admirals from the United States Armed Forces warned in a letter this week that the U.S. was entering a state of “deep peril” under the leadership of President Joe Biden and even called into question his physical and mental health.
The letter, which came from a group called “Flag Officers 4 America,” said that the country was in a fight for survival as a constitutional republic against Marxist forces that seek to destroy American’s rights.
