Looks like it.
The PC sins of saudi arabia.
Well women can drive now!
Sure, they need a male relative accompanying them at all times, which makes the whole idea that they have gained some freedom a complete falsehood, but hey they can drive!
Except for the ones who fought the hardest for the privilege, they've been locked up.
Conservative sooking and outrage is in full swing because the Greens want to stop the Lord's Prayer from being read at the start of Senate business.
In rightard land this of course means that
"the Greens want the Christian faith removed and the pre-Western civilisation Aboriginal one elevated instead."
Global Warming and Muslims get a run in the comments, surprisingly it's not the ABC's fault.... Yet.
Why are conservatives such massive sooks?
Poor old Andy B feels like being a boy is a crime....
It must be so tough for him.
No one sooks and gets outraged like "the right".
I was surprised to read that they actually still say the Lords Prayer in Parliament.
I mean, why FFS?
Do we have separation of church and state in this country or not?
Its not like god's listening......
Normally you'd expect that when someone gets sacked for comments made on radio that the general nutbag conservative would be outraged about the lack of free speech on display and waaaaa waaaaaa waaaa political correctness . However after Barry Hall was sacked from MMM old mate Andy B was outraged that more of them were not sacked.
Seems getting all outraged is the most important thing for nutbag conservatives these days.
This one has a fair few of the 2GB Rightards as well as a few on Sky News getting their gander up:
Lol! All hands to battle stations!!
hmmm i wonder why
Overall view of socialism
58% favourable. 18% unfavourable. 25% don’t know.
Capitalism has failed and government should exercise more control of the economy
59% agree. 25% disagree. 16% don’t know.
Ordinary workers are worse off today than they were 40 years ago
62% agree. 32% disagree. 6% don’t know
hnmmmm whats happening here
centrist parties: vote for us, we caused of all of this, and nothing will get better and there's nothing we can do about it
left wing parties: vote for us, we will try to do something different and make your lives better
centrist parties: why aren't people voting for us?
i mean get a load of this guy. let's not listen to the actual concerns of these people and why they might find answers by going away from the centre towards the 'extreme' end, let's just call them dumb. i can guarantee you this guy also said that people voted for trump because of economic anxiety.
"what's that, you don't like working long hours for lower wages than previous generations with almost no prospect of home ownership? and you don't want to continue voting for the parties that have create and contributed to these conditions? you must be brainwashed."
so that 'study' you can get here. it's from the centre for independent studies - a libertarian think tank would you believe. there's not much to it thankfully.
so they present the results of their survey, which is that young people/millennial are more favourable towards socialism and left wing ideas. fair enough. it's the conclusions they reach which are f**king stupid.
there's no conclusions reached that millennials don't like capitalism because it's left them behind, even though that's what the people responding to their survey said.
the main reason they've come up with is basically education, or a lack of. young people haven't been 'properly' educated about stalin, otherwise they'd all love the free market. they claim that more people know who hitler was, as opposed to stalin, and this is some failure of the education system (it's because australia was involved in the worst war in history started by the nazis; we never went to war against the soviets). then there's the usual doctored death toll numbers (i challenge their claim the nazis were responsible for only 20 million deaths).
so their solution to this? essentially indoctrinate kids by having schools hammer it into them about the atrocities of the 20th century while teaching them about the wonders of capitalist economies (this is textbook propaganda by the way). as though this will make young people fine about not having enough money even though they work longer hours than previous generations.
as an aside, schools do teach about 20th century socialism (at least from what i remember), from an australian perspective. they teach about the korean and vietnam wars, the domino effect in asia and the red scare. it was a pretty big part of the 50s and 60s, so it is taught.
A leftward move like never seen before lol. Lets get some prime ministers as economically left wing as chifley and then we will talk about a leftward move like never before
So we need to brainwash these misguided souls to properly follow the tenets of supply side jesus by conflating all of socialism with Stalin?
It's basically becoming a cult these days.
I knew i'd seen a blog by Andy about this.
The conservatives are fuming.
That report was interesting. Partisan claptrap, but interesting.
Though I would definitely agree with the need for educational reform in Oz I am still a bit confused why we should teach Children that socialism is evil because Stalin but ignore far more contextually relevant dudes like Tommy Douglas.
While we are educating them on the evils of socialism shall we educate them on the conditions in Europe that gave the movement legs or are cities where life expectancy dropped by 25 years on account of abuse by the original industrial capitalists not that important?
It seems almost as if they want to push an agenda...
If those twats actually had an education they would see how f**king retarded their arguments are. Apparently we have a socialist education system that creates socialist children, and this is bad, yet we live in a country that has excelled on the back of good education. We have some of the finest medical research teams in the world, we're overrepresented in technological advances, and one of the things holding us back is f**king fundamentalist conservatives. Bolt and his followers are at best f**king retards.
