…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
I admit that I ran across a Kristen Neel item in the Australian Labor Party tabloid, The Courier-Mail, published in Queensland, only last Saturday. It may have been published that day, under the by-line of Petra Starke, self-described the social media reporter, in the Technology section, of all places.
Feminist journalists love to pick up ignorance of the normal ie. heterosexual, non-Obama voting, women, in a way that can be best described as pots calling the kettles African Americans. If the Twitter image is indeed that of Kristen, she is young and beautiful, thus all the additional reasons for the condescending bile of pc twiterati.
Briefly – last November Obama was re-elected and a certain Kristen Neel, 18 years old resident of Georgia, together with hundreds of Twiter users expressed her wish to migrate to Australia. We do not know whether such a person exists, for all we know she could be an alter ego of Kevin Rudd, but let’s give her a benefit of doubt. She wrote: “I am moving to Australia because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says.”
An experienced person sees immediately why this would rise gorge of the politically correct herd – she used a capital “C” for “Christian”. Twits went wild; 1424 times exactly; and amongst them, apparently, an editor of The Australian. It does make sense, of course – a casual perusal of that newspapers shows that the editors gave up long time ago on such mundane tasks as checking spelling, grammar or even facts and thus have plenty of time to exhibit their journalistic wit to twits, sorry, on Twiter.
Australia does not have a president, thought it is a mistake easy to make; even The New York Times which is pleased to call itself a newspaper of record, confuses presidents with prime ministers, premiers and most often with dictators. (Memo from the NYT Editor: If he/she is of the Left, it is a democratically elected head of state, if he/she is a centre right, it is a dictator)
Since Ms Neel was presumably educated in USA i.e. under the influence of the purveyors of institutionalised ignorance such as Dr Spock, Dr Chomsky and Gloria Steinem, it is wonder that she can write and, allegedly, vote Republican. After at all, many victims of the US educational system not only vote for the Democratic party, but also believe that the American Civil War was about slavery.
Even overseas educated Americans labour under a delusion that Australia is a free country, not realising how far behind they are. For example; Associated Press (US agency) issued its directive that an expression “illegal immigrants” is to be used no longer about two weeks ago, i.e. more than a year after the identical directive from the Australian Press Council to its subjects.
Wrapped in a burka, paying $20 000 or more to the Australian government tolerated smugglers, ditching her passport and claiming to be from the currently fashionable “refugees engendering” region, Kristen could get in.
Otherwise, I do not know. A big problem – she is white. Perhaps some special qualification? Clairvoyancy? Unless God is a Marxist, in September 2013 Australia will have a Christian, male Prime Minister. She may have got that part right, inshallah.
