…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 OnLine – Loud, 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.
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.
