Labor Volkssturm

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

For older people with short memories and younger people disadvantaged by their post-modern education:- “’The Volkssturm lit. “storm of the people” or “Folk-Storm”; “People’s Army” or “National Militia”) was a German national militia of the last months of World War II. It was set up, not by the traditional German Army, but by the Nazi Party on the orders of Adolf Hitler on October 18, 1944. It conscripted males between the ages of 16 to 60 years who were not already serving in some military unit as part of a German Home Guard.”

Beleaguered Labor got to that stage. They are scratching at the bottom of the putrid barrel for anything – miracle weapons (Vergeltungswaffen – German: “retaliatory weapons”, “reprisal weapons”) or anyone fanatical, evil or still obedient enough to fight. Hitler’s last ditch V-1 and V-2 did indeed some damage to the forces of freedom and so did Gillard’s Vergeltungswaffe-1 called ‘misogyny’. V-2 ‘Paedophilia’? is yet to come.

In Labor Volkssturm context, I do not necessarily refer to the biological age, but the mental one. On the “young and naïve’ side we find, for example, Whitlam-jugend representative Cassandra Wilkinson’s (I hope I got her name right), a former Labor adviser, whom I happened to see to perform on Andrew Bolt’s show sometime back. Vacuous, dogmatic and uneducated are the most benign adjectives I could come up with. Great pity that she is a “former” advisor because she truly embodies the spirit (or is it ‘dis-spirit?) of contemporary labour movement and thus she would make it easier for those still undecided to see what the so called party of workers is really about.

On the side of the veterans of lost wars we have McTernan, an advisor to “it”, who is doing to the reputation of Scots in Australia what Gillard did to the reputation of women. I wouldn’t know him from a left-over haggis but he seems to have no sense of humour, only the exalted sense of his own non-existent achievements and malicious mind. Again, a typical socialist. I have to mention that I do not think that McTernan was behind “it’s” misogyny outburst. I met some Scots and I do not believe that any Scot could be that stupid. “It” could not come up with that on “its” own. It is more likely the Socialist International world-wide strategic directive to distract attention from the real problems to the so-called “war on women”. As a distraction, it works. Decent people are forced to respond. For example, in Quadrant OnLineLoud, low and thoroughly loathsome by Peter Smith:

I hadn’t seen Julia Gillard’s “misogyny” speech, just read about it. I thought I better see it for myself. You have to actually see it to understand the bile that she spewed out. It was vituperative; it personified the ugliest face of human nature. I felt strangely diminished and degraded when it was finished. It was beyond disgraceful, even taking into account the grossest of insults and invective that have been hurled in the past across the parliamentary chambers. It had no redeeming feature, no moment of common humanity. She demeaned the high office of prime minister.

Naturally, the whole article is worth reading and I would only add that “it” demeaned the office of prime minister so often that I lost a count. The case of the Labor Prime Minister organising a race riot against the Leader of the Opposition springs to mind.

I wonder whether at least some of the members of that supposedly workers and social justice party are ashamed of what is done in their name to Australia. Probably not, anyone still in it must have abandoned any moral scruples long time ago.

 And former Premier Jeff Kennett:

WHAT sort of country are we becoming, when our Prime Minister becomes so desperate that she uses her gender to deliberately and personally attack her opponent in the most unbecoming way in Parliament.

To accuse Tony Abbott of being a misogynist, a hater of women, is as irresponsible as one can get.

It is a charge without truth and an insult to Abbott’s wife, Margaret, and his daughters.

But clearly our Prime Minister has no respect for the truth or the office she holds. Life is all about Julia, her interests, her desire to survive…

Julia Gillard and the party she leads have failed every measure of good government.

She now has only personal invective left in her arsenal on which to base her argument for re-election….

Many of you will have heard me on many occasions defend the Prime Minister…

But this latest abuse of her office has somehow broken my spirit.

I have given up… I will never again respect her for the standard of leadership she is providing this country.

It is personal, it is bitter, it is divisive, and it is short-sighted, and it is simply unprofessional.

Julia Gillard is insulting and demeaning the high office she holds.

What to add? O tempora! O mores!

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    That Scotish simpleton is a disgrace, don’t blame Julia.

    They, Labor, may be scratching the bottom of the barrel, but the bottom of the barrel of Aus voters still likes them. 45% ? What a shame!

  3. Venus says:

    It worked in 1933 in Germany, why should it not work here? Do you think you are smarter than Germans?

  4. Watcher says:

    Dude.. I am not very much into studying, but somehow I think you hit the spot.

  5. Constable says:

    And they also deploy the scorched earth strategy. Coalition will need at least three terms to repay the debt, and in the meantime there will countless strikes, protests and public service sabotage.

  6. Michaelo says:

    Even Volkssturm did damage.

  7. Encore boy says:

    Volkssturm, Hitlerjugend or Whitlamjugend – all strangely appropriate to XXI century Australia. Who would have thought?

  8. Dressor says:

    Julia in the bunker and Goering/Rudd waiting until the poison takes efect so that he can be the saviour.

  9. Outllier says:

    They drafted Finkelstein.. who is left? Frankenstein?

  10. Helmut says:

    These Schweinhunden in the Canberra bunker take us with them to Walhala!

  11. Collector says:

    As one can see in America, most outrageous lies work. There is still hope for Fuhrer Gillard. And Abbott is no Churchill.

    Really good information.
