Outlaw Davidphobia Now!

How do you spell “Oztraeliare” again? Via Crikey:

Two Liberal Victorian candidates have stood down over, respectively, Islamophobic and homophobic comments written in 2018, while, in what has become a stacked 48-hours for social media political controversies, Labor’s Melbourne candidate Luke Creasey has apologised for sharing a rape joke on Facebook in 2012.

Days after Labor NT candidate Wayne Kurnorth stood down ($) for sharing an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory video in 2015, The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Liberal NSW candidate Sachin Joshi wrote in a 2018 LinkedIn post that women lack the “business skills” for pay rises, while The Mercury reports ($) that Tasmanian Liberal candidate Jessica Whelan denies having written Islamophobic comments found on her Facebook account.

Well I’m bloody offended that nobody has provided policy remedies for us deeply marginalised “Davids”.

Davidphobia is the number one policy social issue in this country and it must stopped!

    Didn’t you get the memo? You’re not allowed to offend anyone. Ever.

      Ha! Couple of days ago I was squeezed into the gutter by a p-plater. Caught up at the lights where she’d overshot the stop line by a full car length and had her head down in her phone. Told her to put her bloody phone down and that she’d nearly killed me.

      Told me she was offended by my tone.

      Your right to free speech is sacrosanct in this wonderful democracy — providing you don’t offend anybody 😉

    • Torchwood1979

      I find this statement about never being offensive very offensive. You may be offended by my comment about being offended.

        yep similar story here…

        Massive near miss out the front of the Pyrmont Bridge Hotel.

        Chick on motorised scooter had to lock up late as she was about to run a red light and get tea boned by a sedan.

        She was prone on the intersection for a couple of seconds and I was the first one there.

        I asked if she was ok and then said don’t move if you are hurt,

        She awoke …turned and gave me a gobful saying i must the worst first aider ever.

    Good jokes are funny. What’s there to apologise about?

    Homophobic, Islamophobic, antisemitic, etc, comments can be pretty entertaining too.

    These morons should harden up.

    • I knew this chick once, had a real thing for having her ears involved in for play. every time I’d bring my member close to her face, she’d turn her head to the side.

      she was chinese, and would be saying “ah do no consen, ah do no consen” over and over. can anyone speak mandarin?

      • Pffff…..baaahahahaha! Jesus H Christ in a fluoro green mankini! You owe me a new cup of coffee, ya’ bàstárd!

    I don’t understand this post?
    It’s not ok for the LNP to disendorse these clowns?

  4. This is garbage….

    *checks author, checks access status*

    …..Oh its just chicken feed for all the aged racists and homophobes this publication is trying to capture to salvage its business model.

    Carry on.

      • Ha.. and there is a law about that. What age do you become old and it’s ok to slander you? I was wondering how long it would take for this

      • fitzroyMEMBER

        If you feel aged you are aged. I feel aged therefore I am offended and the hate speech outrages me!

      • fitzroyMEMBER

        Definitely davidophobic, such intolerence should not be tolerated. This micro aggressive hate speech should result in deplatforming.

        Nathan is just pimping his virtue in the typical costless exercise that most virtue signallers engage in – punching down on anyone who disagrees with the carefully manufactured social consensus that our perfidious businessmen spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year propagating.

        I am sure Nathan is familiar with this quote:

        “the broad masses of a nation… more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie , since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.”

        Most people when they hear that quote believe it to describe AH’s own propaganda and policies. The truth is he actually said it in reference to the pre-existing media in the Wiemar Republic, who had been preaching remarkably similar cultural values that we would all be familiar with today; The benefits of Privatisation, The benefits of Immigration and Multiculturalism, and even more esoteric issue such as Identity and Gender (the German Cabaret shows that emerged during this period to titillated with both outright eroticism and gender bending cross dressing being an example)…. remarkable when you actually look into History and you find that there is nothing new, even today’s culture war is basically an exact replay of one that occurred in Germany following WW1.

        Today’s lie is that existing regional Australians are bogons, backward, ignorant and racist, and it is being told by our corporate and Govt media. Nathan is simply trying to pledge his allegiance to the propagandists by punching down in order to assert his cultural superiority over his fellow dissenting countrymen.

      • That’s right Stewie. The social situation today certainly does echo the post WW1 German situation, particularly what was happening in Berlin. Few people seem to have learned from that history and they are on track to push society along the same vector it pursued back then.

      • FiftiesFibroShack

        “That’s right Stewie. The social situation today certainly does echo the post WW1 German situation.”

        Yeah, we’ve got a bunch of no-hopers trying to blame a particular group of people for society’s ills. “Honk Honk”

        Culture maters FFSDB – it forms the bed rock of every decision that we make.

        David or Leith, I can’t remember which said “In the short Term Productivity is not a big issue, over the long term it is everything.” Truth is a nations productivity rests on the bedrock of the cultural values that built them, allowed the productive solutions to be formulated and the mutual sacrifice that was often necessary in order to first obtain them.

        Idea’s like Multiculturalism and neoliberalism don’t arise in a society spontaneously – no largely culturally and ethnically homogeneous nation wakes up one day and says to itself; “Let’s invite a multitude of alternative people and cultures into our society to consume our social capital and compete with us in terms of projecting our values forward into the future.”

        These value sets that I go on about emerged as a direct result of the lobbying of a particular wealthy and culturally distinct population group that migrated here just preceding and following WW2 and then set about transforming our society from one which focused on social benefit and the interdependence of its culturally united people and well being of all its members, into one where the primary lens of policy decision making focused instead on the individual.

        The purpose of Multiculturalism and Neoliberalism, which I characterise as Cultural Warfare, is to strip away our societies ability to use its own resources to project its culture forward into the future. Under the neoliberal model, “Culture” is exclusively the responsibility of the individual or perfidious “in-group” cultural cliques to maintain. Only those groupings with strong independent cultural institutions e.g. the religious, will be able to project their values into the future.

        Multiculturalism, Neoliberalism, Monetarism, “Saving the Banks” these are all social policies that have emerged in the West over the past 50 years – they did not spontaneously emerge, the cultural roots behind them are firmly alien to the cultural history of the majority of people residing in the West.

        That you lack the insight to register and so blithely discount it as a possibility, without doing one iota of investigation on this or anything I just mentioned about Wiemar Germany, say’s more about your determination to remain a ignorant and protect your existing viewpoint, rather than being open minded enough to consider any possible alternative narrative.

        “Honk” “Honk” back to you.

    • FiftiesFibroShack

      You’re just noticing the business model now? C’mon, they’re been selling grievance and monetising nutters for years!

  5. Europhobia is the greatest policy social issue in this country that must be stopped.

  6. Consider the broader effect of removing individuals with their apparently socially distasteful quirks. What does this do for the engagement of the electorate? Are we to believe that they will not become disengaged?
    Then what happens when someone comes along who canvases all the unpopular ideas and bundles then into an election platform?

    I don’t get this blog anymore. One Nation has “descended into smut”. But things like Rape, homophobia and bigoted jokes are completely ok and an affront to freedom if we block them? This makes no sense..

    • Obviously we are sailing through the straights between extremists. The point of this morning’s satirical offering was to point out that the election is far too focused on culture wars rubbish than it is national interest policy.

      Conversely when we mock ON we are pointing out that it is beyond the pale.

      There is a middle ground here called “Australia”, the notion of which we trying to keep alive.

    • Stewie GriffinMEMBER

      There was a time before Outrage Optics that people were allowed to condemn themselves through their own words.

      Now, it is the role of our progressive pearl clutching moral guardians to see who can screech the loudest over any perceived offence in order to have it shut down, least other innocent thinkers are exposed to, and become infected by, ‘wrong think’.

    Think I’m going to stop going to the pub with the lads …….far too many phobias being mentioned…….
    …..what a boring sterile little society we are becoming …..and let’s close the pubs too they are offensive institutions where there are jokes being told …can you believe that ? …..shocking !

  9. Just seems like a way of filtering out the truly incompetent. If you didn’t get how social media worked by 2012, let alone 2018 don’t see what place there is for you as a political candidate.

    • Perhaps competence should be measured by results, rather than if you’ve posted an off-colour joke on social media….

      • Good idea, but you need to have good results in order to determine competence. Name a politician who has achieved anything that has benefited the Australian people in the past decade?

    • Obviously you’re a filthy vowelphobic and far-capslock extremist. De-personing to begin in 3…2…1…

  10. If One Nation had an ounce of sense it would snap up these wayward wannabe politicos and use them to shore up their vote!

    All this angst over political correctness…
    But it is quite OK to Frack this continent ’tilt’s nose bleeds.
