Exquisite timing

 …from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger


Finally some Australian media turned their attention to the sexual violence against Aboriginal women. One may say well past the time, since at the most Aboriginal communities no female child over the age of three is a virgin, and most suffer from venereal diseases.[Sex abuse of Aboriginal children shown to be just as bad as ever]

Naturally, the revelation of the latest shocking misogynist racially motivated assault involves the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott. It occurred on 6th March this year, i.e. three months ago, in Borcellis cafe in Adelaide, where the multi-awarded Aboriginal poetess and a stolen child [My life as a stolen child] Ali Cobby Eckermann (pictured right) held her traditional working breakfast. According to the victim’s statement, the perpetrator Abbott, “approached her table and without making an eye contact inappropriately rubbed his finger up and down her bare arm.” It is not know whether he was wearing a blue tie at the time of the offence. It is very likely.

All this apparently made Ali Cobby Eckermann feel like “wearing a burka”. What colour? Dark blue? The cheap gillard jokes aside, it is is not clear to me: Does it mean that she then felt like a real woman, like some of her fellow feminists, apologists for fundamentalist Islam, claim? Or is she not quite au fait with the latest femo-collective directive and believes that wearing burka is bad, imposed on women by men wearing blue ties?

Nevertheless, she ultimately overcame her trauma by first contacting a psychologist and subsequently spending several weeks in Ireland as an Australian poetry ambassador. For those few not familiar with her oeuvre, an example from the poem Dusk:

she sits on a rocky ledge
overlooking frog song
puncturing a choked river
at dusk

she listens for earth song
under the algae and foreign reeds
and just as darkness falls
a fish jumps rippling memory

A putrid pond indeed. From the Melbourne extreme Left tabloid The Age 25th May 2013: Indigenous writer Ali Cobby Eckermann was the big winner at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, collecting the $30,000 poetry prize and $10,000 book of the year award for Ruby Moonlight, published by Broome-based Magabala Books.

Ruby Moonlight is series of connected poems that tell the life story of an indigenous girl who survives a massacre in South Australia about 1880.

The prize was for the politically correct fiction obviously, awarded by the Premier Barry O’Farrell (Lib), yet another politician who got elected by pretending to be a conservative. Hopefully the taxpayers’ money helped her to get over that sexual assault.

 It is probably not necessary for the readers of Fog of Chaos, or for that matter, intelligent persons generally; but just in case, we publish a statement from Tony Abbott:

 Ms Eckerman’s claims are wrong.

As I stated when I wrote to Ms Eckerman at the time, I reject any suggestion that I acted inappropriately. That, also, was the view of my friend who was with me in the café during our breakfast meeting.

The respected journalist and columnist, Christopher Pearson, who died tragically this month, was with me at the cafe. I spoke to him after Ms Eckerman made her complaint and he endorsed fully my version of events.  I would be concerned if this false accusation has only re-surfaced after Christopher’s death when he cannot again endorse my account.

This is nothing more than a baseless smear.

Labor politics. Oh, the priorities of our pathetic press!



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.

    ABC pumps the Labor propaganda at the ever increasing rate. The rats must be frantic.

    The culture of complaint is not limited to the Left, but a falacious complaint is mostly used by them – only thanks to complicit media.
